Following a botched selfie wherein he accidentally dropped his phone into a reservoir, a government official in India went to drastic measures to retrieve the device by draining the site of its water. The bizarre incident reportedly occurred last week when food inspector Rajesh Vishwas was visiting the Kherkatta Dam in the city of Pakhanjur. After a picnic at a reservoir which contains overflow water from the dam, he attempted to take a picture of himself to commemorate the day, but wound up fumbling his phone, which plummeted down into the lake. What followed next was an ill-advised 'rescue mission' that has made Vishwas the scourge of social media in India and quite possibly cost him his job.
