Apple Watch was really made to change people’s lives, because someone who survived a fatal fall through the snow can confirm this.
An experienced ski instructor was enjoying some solitary time on a frozen lake the other day, sliding down as the ice spread, which he thought should be frozen.
However, the elements of Bihar may be at work, or they may have hit a vulnerability, as veteran skier William Rogers suddenly found himself engulfed in salmon shakes in Somerset Falls.
He struggled for several minutes but was unable to get out of the ice hole, and hypothermia quickly entered.
The first thing I tried to tell him on the ice was that I needed to get out of the water as quickly as possible and the ice kept breaking underneath me.
He wrapped himself in ice for the rest of his life, had no access to his phone, and it dawned on him that he had the best ten minutes before he could answer.
I remember saying to myself, “Well, don’t worry. Don’t worry. Find out what your options are here.”
Then Rogers recalled that he was still wearing his Apple Watch, and used it to call emergency services. The firefighter managed to save his life, but only five minutes later, in time.
All versions of Apple Watch have Emergency SOS for instant calling to 911 using multiple modes (however, none of them are completely hands-free yet). The advantage of Fall Detection is that when activated,
it will automatically call 911 if it senses a fall and remains active for a minute. Among other security tasks, Apple Watch Series 5 or later allows you to place emergency services calls from anywhere near the world as long as you have cellular service, and forward your call to local first responders.
