iPad survives after being accidentally embedded in car bumper

Here comes a story, the kind of which we don't hear every day. According to a recent news report, an iPad got stuck deep in a car bumper – so deep that a hammer was required in order to get it out. Surprisingly, the tablet lived to tell the story and even got reunited with its owner after all the trouble it went to.

It turns out that the misfortunate iPad flew off the roof of a moving car embedding itself into the bumper of a nearby vehicle. Its owner simply forgot it there and took off. Interestingly, the lady whose car got hit didn't see the iPad until she got back home and looked at the front of her car. Since the iPad was still working even after the accident – a proof that Apple's tablets are pretty well built, the lady who found it managed to contact the tablet's rightful owner. A video of the entire news report is available at the source link below!

Lumnia survived a caterpillar. A x210 saved a soldiers life. iPhone 5 had scratches out of the box.

Is it considered trolling when someone makes a comment that is irrelevant to the article?

He made three comments about Nokia in the same thread...not one. Your addition is as good as your punctuation.

Physically, 70% rate of survival. Internally, 100% rate of survival. He was talking about the iPad is still working.

No doubt. And where is the rest of it? Did apple come up with an invisible back cover and guts?

thats an awkward angle for an ipod to hit a car from the top of a different car.... that crack comes from underneath... meaning that it would of had to go up into the bumber, right?

lol i dont think by any mean is this situation an accident, i think it's done on purpose for testing or experiment.

Lucky break for the ipad. It probably came in a good and safe angle. If the car was built like the Lumia 920 the iPad would have been toast. They just don't make bumpers like they used too.
