‘But for a few meters I could have hit someone, and, at that height I was flying, 2,000 feet, it was going to be a tragedy, can you imagine? But it wasn’t a tragedy, it had many emotions.’

The footage shows the filmmaker’s surprise as he finds the iPhone on the beach still working after the huge fall. 

He said: ‘It’s something that, if you tell someone, they won’t believe.’
