Blakey claimed on his own Twitter account that he was skiing alone on a 10,000-foot Swiss mountain when he fell 15 feet due to a subsidence. He landed on what was characterized as a “fragile” snow bridge that could collapse at any time.
Even though Blakey is over 16 feet above the ice, he is still able to connect to a 3G connection. In addition, his phone’s battery is at 3% capacity, and the screen is continually leaking with water. Fortunately, he remained composed and recalled the Emergency Services shortcut on his iPhone.
Keep this in mind since it may one day save your life. Press and hold the button next to the iPhone, as well as any of the two volume rockers, until the Emergency SOS Slider appears. To contact emergency services, drag the Emergency SOS slider.
If you keep holding the side and volume buttons together, an alert will sound and a countdown timer will begin. Hold the buttons down until the timer beeps and emergency personnel are summoned.
Blakey thanked the Swiss Rescue crew on Instagram for saving him after he activated his iPhone’s Emergency Services. He also congratulated Apple for developing the iPhone‘s emergency call button.
