When Erica Bennett lost her iPhone in a South Carolina river some 15 months ago it was a painful experience–made even more painful by the fact that the phone contained the last messages she’d received from her late father.

Bennett lost the phone when it fell overboard during a riverboat trip in June 2018. Her father, William Sikes, had passed away that same month from Leukemia and the phone was her only record of his last words to her.

According to the Good News Network losing the phone and the memories it contained hit her hard with Bennett saying:

“That was one of the things that hit me hard [about the phone]. I thought I would never be able to read those words again. All I remember is thinking of all the photos and texts I had just lost in the bottom of that river. Memories I thought I would never get back.”

Now, thanks to a treasure hunter who goes by “Nuggetnoggin“, Bennett and her lost phone have been reunited.

Nuggetnoggin, whose real name is Michael Bennett (no relation to the other person in this story), is a treasure-hunter and professional YouTuber and he came across Erica’s phone while diving in South Carolina’s Edisto River.

Incredibly, although it was covered in mud and algae, the phone still worked.

Bennett was able to contact Erica by switching out the phone’s SIM card and finding her contact info.

According to GNN, Erica couldn’t believe it, saying:

“I thought it was a spam call at first. It was unbelievable. I felt like I was getting punk’d.”

When Michael then returned Erica’s phone she told GNN that her relief was palpable saying:

“I have those memories back now. It’s just a phone. But then again, it’s not.”

Bennett recorded a video of his discovery that you can watch below:
