1 A Student in a Car Crash
College student Casey Bennett, 22, was on his way home from campus one day last year when he was involved in a car accident. His vehicle, which had been struck by another car, flipped over onto its side — leaving him hanging from his seatbelt. But the crash had also flung the young man’s iPhone out of reach.
Despite being dazed from the impact, Bennett said he realized he was wearing his Apple Watch — and activated its SOS feature. The Watch alerted his family and emergency responders, who took six minutes to arrive while dispatchers remained on the one with him. Bennett later wrote to Apple CEO Tim Cook to thank him for the emergency feature.
