Siri saves Tennessee teen who was pinned under truck
15 August 2015
Sam Ray was alone when the truck he was fixing fell on him. Conscious, he remembered his phone was in his back pocket, so used his bottom to activate Siri and it called emergency services.At first, the dispatcher thought it was mistaken call but soon heard Mr Ray's cries for help.
"I could feel myself slipping," Ray told his local newspaper the Tennessean on Friday. "I was starting to accept that I wouldn't get out."
By triangulating the signal from Mr Ray's phone, the dispatcher was able to locate his home in a suburb of Nashville.
Rescue workers pulled Mr Ray from underneath the truck, and he quickly was airlifted to a nearby hospital.Despite of how seriously he was hurt in the July incident, suffering several broken ribs, a bruised kidney, cuts, a concussion and burns to his left arm, he managed to recover.
Mr Ray had been thinking about getting a Samsung Galaxy phone, but the accident has changed things.
"I guess I'm stuck with an iPhone for the rest of my life," Mr Ray said. "I owe them that."
