PERTH, Australia -- This man waited in line for hours, maybe days, to be the first to get the new iPhone and accomplished his goal.

But then, the man, the first person to buy the new iPhone, drops it on live TV.

He struggles with the packaging to get the phone out of the box and as soon as the lid comes off, the phone flies from the package and hits the pavement.

Crowds in line still waiting to get their hands on the newest device cringed with groans and gasps.

Good news, the man who dropped the phone said it was OK. No serious damage done.

Guess it passes the crash test.
