This is the moment a Chinese man in flip-flops drops his iPhone while leaving a lift and watches helplessly as it slides down the gap and plummets 10 floors where it was later retrieved in full working order.

The incident was filmed by a lift CCTV camera in the city of Chaozhou in the south-eastern Chinese province of Guangdong on 22nd May.

According to the news site Baidu, the man took the lift to the 10th floor and dropped his phone while playing with it before it then fell between the gap.
