iPhone app saves man's life in Haiti

News - By: pdaBlast! Staff - January 21, 2010

An American filmmaker found himself in the massive earthquake in Haiti. Injured and needing to stay alive, Dan Woolley used his iPhone to keep himself alive long enough to be rescued some 65 hours later.

He used the backlight on the phone to see. He also took pictures of his surroundings with the camera. But it was the first aid app he downloaded that helped keep himself alive.

"And thanks to the iPhone first-aid app he’d downloaded, he knew how to fashion a bandage and tourniquet for his leg and to stop the bleeding from his head wound. The app also warned him not to fall asleep if he felt he was going into shock, so he set his cell phone’s alarm clock to go off every 20 minutes."
