Are you obsessed with your iPhone? And if you are, what would you do if you lose your precious iPhone? Well this guy literally hanged himself because he lost his iPhone. But why?
Archie Day

A vlogger hanged himself after he was found “sobbing uncontrollably” because he misplaced his iPhone at an Arctic Monkeys party last year, an inquest heard.

Archie Day, 20, of Bishop Stortford, Herts in England, took his own life on October 5 at Peel Park halls of residence at Salford University in Greater Manchester.

A coroner said the undergraduate was “extremely upset” about losing his phone before he hanged himself. His family believe he did not intend to kill himself – blaming excessive drinking at the club night for contributing to him ”not thinking rationally.”

Archie, a keen Instagram vlogger and broadcast journalism student, had a history of depression and anxiety but told his family it had become less of an issue, an inquest heard.

In a statement read at Bolton Coroner's Court Archie's flatmate Kane Markham said broadcast journalism student Mr Day had not shown signs he would take his own life after the night out at 'Venue' in Manchester.
He said: 'I knew that he suffered from depression, but I didn't realise how bad it was as he was so outgoing. His Instagram page said 'Should have died already' and he was into musicians who rapped about depression - but I think he got comfort from those artists.

'He was a loud and charismatic character and he always seemed to be a bit of a ringleader. That night he had least four drinks of Stella there and was also sipping out of other people's drinks. He did seem to talk to anyone and at 2.30am he sent a message to our WhatsApp group asking where we were and, as a joke, we said that we went home.

'We booked a taxi and got in to leave and when we got to it, we noticed that Archie wasn't there. I tried to call Archie but there was no answer but as we got back, we spoke to another student who was talking about Archie and he said that he Archie was in his room and he had been mugged. There was a security guard in the room with Archie and was sobbing uncontrollably.'
Mohammed Zafar, a security guard at Peel Park said he could hear Archie crying from the other side of the door when he was called up. 
The device was later located 220 miles away in Romford, Essex but was never recovered.

 For those who are obsessed with their iPhone , please try to distance yourself from them, because if you become too attached it will become a part of you. This is why it's good to be an Android user.
