Clayton took out the iPhone 11's SIM card, inserted it into another smartphone, and then contacted the original owner. The owner of the submerged iPhone 11 is Fatemeh Ghodsi, who said he dropped the iPhone 11 while boarding a boat on Harrison Lake in September 2020.

'I lost my balance while on the boat and dropped my iPhone 11,' Ghodsi said. The Harrison Lake staff said, 'It's impossible to find an iPhone dropped on the lake,' and Ghodsi said he had no choice.
