Text messages from under 30 feet of mud

The news carried stories of a schoolteacher buried in the mudslide sending text messages calling for help. The messages finally stopped at Friday 7PM.

It's a poignant story, but I'm wondering: is it possible? I would have thought that under all that mud, about 30 feet of it, you couldn't get a signal.

Just thinking.


  1. Indeed. But I don't want this to have to turn out to be another hoax. A few days from now, somebody might come out and say that he was only joking, but now regrets it.
