SIRI SAVES MEN FROM SINKING BOAT
The Siri feature on iPhones can answer many questions and do many things – but it recently took things to a whole new level by saving three fishermen from disaster out on the high seas.
The three fishermen were cruising off the coast of Florida when they were confronted by big waves. It didn’t take long for the 18-foot boat to start taking on water.
While battling the rough ocean, a crew member using a waterproof iPhone 7 used the “Hey Siri” feature to call 911. Luckily, the feature is activated by voice, as the fishermen were dealing with cold hands and fingers – and were having trouble dialing on the touch screen.
Not long after the call for help, a helicopter from the Coast Guard went out to search for the guys, found them and brought them back to safety.(NY Post)
