We’ve seen every new iPhone undergo drop tests, scratch tests and get blown into pieces in a blender. But what happens to an iPhone that gets run over by a lawn mower?
An Illinois woman was mowing her lawn in her house, but accidentally ran the mower over her iPhone 5s and crushed it into pieces. Here’s how the wreckage looks like:
Apart from the financial loss, the woman also lost all her photos, which she didn’t backup to her Mac/PC or to the cloud.
A Twitter search turns up results that show this accident is much more common that you’d expect.

These photos are quite scary, and serve a good reminder as to why you should regularly backup your device, keep it safe from such risks, or buy a protective case that can prevent such mishaps.[via Yahoo]
