What happened to photographer Catalin Marin is one our biggest fears. Last week, he was recording the fog swallowing Dubai from the top of the 42-story Liberty House when something very bad happened: a gust of wind blew his phone off the building.

Good bye, see you never, you're probably thinking. Nope, he used Find My Phone app and located it, according to NBC ​News. Much to his amazement, the silicone case protected it from shattering and it recorded the dizzying fall.

Watch the ​full video from the iPhone 6's POV of the 10 second drop ​on Ins​tagram.

The phone victoriously emerged with just a small dent, he said in a ​follow-up picture.

Now we know! The iPhone will blend, but it won't break.
