In what has been hailed as ‘a miracle’, one Sliema teenager has reportedly survived in his home with no connection to the internet for almost 6 whole hours.
Answering to the name ‘Trevor Callus’, the 16-year-old was found in a distressed state yesterday evening, walking through his neighbourhood holding his Samsung Galaxy above his head looking for a signal and muttering incoherently.
The emergency services were notified, and Trevor was brought to a nearby cafeteria and hooked up to their Wi-Fi immediately. It remains unclear as to how the teen was left without internet for such a long period of time, and a search has begun to find Trevor’s parents, with fears that they may have other kids without even a single bar of coverage.
“Trevor survived without access to any social media or video sharing sites for the better part of an afternoon,” said an amazed member of child protection services, Appogg.
“No GIFs, no memes, no porn. It’s incredible to see him in such good condition, considering what he went through. There’s grown adults who can’t go without internet for that long, let alone teenagers.”
Trevor was not available for interview, with rumours circulating that the poor youngster (him being from the ‘tal-pepe’ quarters of Sliema) had lost the ability to speak in anything other than ‘normal’ English, having not used emojis for so long.
