Video: Soldier pocket-dials family during combat

We’ve all done it, accidentally dialed someone with our cellphone while it’s in a pocket or bag, but this soldier in Afghanistan went one better. Stuck in a firefight against Taliban insurgents, he accidentally pocket-dialed his parents back home, leaving a three-minute recording of the combat on their answering machine.

He lived through it, but the recording itself is quite interesting. You can hear shouts of “More ammo!” and “Incoming!”

I hope this never happens to me.
