An unconscious individual in the snow is saved by an Apple Watch

Emergency services rescued an unconscious man in Morrow, Georgia, after his Apple Watch detected him in a fall and informed local authorities in the middle of the freezing US east coast.

Apple’s most recent commercials promoting the Apple Watch Series 7 have highlighted the device’s ability to immediately summon assistance in an emergency. In Morrow City, Clayton County, Georgia, this feature recently saved a life.

On January 23, 2022, an elderly homeowner collapsed outside his home, according to Apple Insider. When he didn’t answer that he was alright after the fall, his watch went off on its own. The Clayton County Emergency Contact Center should be contacted.

“Because the Apple Watch originates the call, the location of the call can only be determined using the watch’s GPS,” said Deputy Superintendent Jeff Moss of the Morrow City Fire Department.

When Morrow Fire Department personnel and Morrow Police officers got on the scene, they immediately discovered that the actual address was not where the patient was, so they began expanding the search.”

The man was discovered nearby, semi-conscious, bewildered, and freezing. It took 12 minutes from the moment Apple dialed the number to the time he was discovered.

He was transported to the hospital and then released. The temperature was too chilly, and the man’s condition may have been more dangerous if the Apple Watch hadn’t intervened, according to emergency authorities.
