Another Apple Watch 911 success!



PSA: Last Sunday while trying to meet up with my dad for some mountain biking in Riverside State Park (MTB in RSP), I get a text from dad's Apple Watch letting me know it "detected a Hard Fall" with a map to his location. It was not far from our meeting spot. We drove straight thereóbut he was gone when we arrived.



I get another update from the watch saying his location has changed with a map location of SHMC. Dad flipped his bike at the bottom of Doomsday, hit his head and was knocked out until sometime during the ambulance ride. The watch had called 911 with his location and EMS had him scooped up and to the hospital in under a 1/2 hr. The fire dept. took his bike back to the station. My brother was already driving by the the hospital when the second update came in and was able to be with him right away.



Dad is doing great, clear X-Rays and CT scan, but a little sore for sure! IF YOU OWN AN APPLE WATCH, set up your HARD FALL detectionóit's not just for when you fall off a roof or a ladder. Had he fallen somewhere on the High Drive trails or another remote area, the location would have clued EMS in on where to find him. Amazing technology and so glad he had it!

Uh, no Freddie. Ya might wanna read that again. It was a pickup from the web somewhere and was not Mark's dad. An Apple watch promo in all likelihood, if real at all.

Ya might have got sucked in again.
