Yes, its true! I was out taking sunrise pictures as usual right by reflecting pool. I was waiting for my camera to take the pictures and decided to look at what time it was. I wanted to see how much more time was left until the actual sunrise. As I took it out of the pocket of my hoodie, I got bumped out of my hand. I saw it drifting towards the edge of the water when I watched it go in. I was in total shock and stood there for about 2 minutes.
