Siri was not just an iPhone feature for one man, but also a hero.
A man in Tennessee was saved from getting crushed under his 5,000- pound truck when Siri helped him call 911, Sam Ray, 18, was working under his 1998 Black Dodge Dakota at his home when the jack holding up his truck gave way and pinned his left hand under the truck.
Ray heard Siri’s voice from his iPhone in his back pocket. He was able to “butt-dial” Siri and ask “her” to call 911. At first, 911 dispatchers thought the call was a butt-dial, “but then I heard the screams for help,” said Rutherford County dispatcher, Christina Lee, to The Tennessean.
Ray was trapped under the car for about 40 minutes, until firefighters arrived and propped up the car, according to The Tennessean. He was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and “was in good condition, despite suffering several broken ribs, a bruised kidney, cuts, a concussion and burned to his left arm,” said Rick Miller, Vanderbilt chief of trauma and surgical care, to The Tennessean.
Miller said Ray was very lucky, “and Ray is thanking his stars, God and Siri,” The Tennessean reports.
“I guess I’m stuck with an iPhone for the rest of my life,” Ray said to The Tennessean. “I owe them that.”
