This is such a beautiful story so I thought I would share. Recently an Australian woman used the Siri application on her iPhone 6 to call the ambulance after her 1-year-old daughter who had stopped breathing. The Siri application placed the call, and the mother was able to speak with the emergency services on speakerphone while resuscitating her baby daughter.
If you have a smartphone and you are ever in a situation where you are alone and/or cannot leave to grab additional assistance then use your speakerphone and place the phone by the victim's head. This will allow the emergency personnel on the other end of the phone to not only assist you but listen to your commands as well as any usual sounds made by the victim.
Technology is so powerful and there are so many ways that we can use it in a constructive manner-this is the perfect example.
This is a must read story.
