Woman becomes hysterical after dropping phone into lake and being stopped from jumping in after it

A woman on a cruise at Yunnan, China's scenic Erhai Lake was caught on video hysterically trying to jump after her phone that she had dropped into the water.

The woman was obviously distressed as she desperately tried to jump in after her beloved phone and it took a group of five to six people to restrain her and try to talk some sense into her.

According to Shanghaiist, the woman did not end up throwing herself overboard.

Sina Video reports that workers tried to retrieve the woman's phone but to no avail.

Apparently, the water was seven metres deep.
