6 A Mother and Her Baby
Late last year, a 24-year-old woman and her 9-month-old baby were driving when their vehicle was struck by a drunk driver. The woman, Kacie Anderson, told Shape earlier in 2018 that she scrambled for her iPhone, but was unable to find it due to blacking out. When she realized she was wearing her Apple Watch, she used it to call for aid via SOS.
When first responders arrived, Anderson and her son were rushed to the hospital. While her baby only suffered scrapes and bruises, Anderson’s own injuries were much more serious. She said she suffered a concussion, as well as ruptured muscles and bulging disks. But the woman still credits the Apple Watch’s SOS feature with “saving” her and her son.
