A four year old boy was able to use Siri on his mother’s phone to save her life.
Police reports that the boy who lived just outside of London was able to invoke Siri on his mom’s phone to call 999, the British equivalent to 911. The police released the phone call in a video below and says that his action saved his mom’s life.
Thirteen minutes after receiving the call, officers arrived and managed to force entry inside the house where they found the boy with his twin brother and younger brother all inside with their mum, who was lying unconscious on the floor. Paramedics were able to give life-saving first aid to the woman and she was taken to hospital after regaining consciousness at the home.
Most of the credits go to the boy’s parents who was taught how to call emergency services, and remember his home address. He was also able to remain calm when calling for help.
Because the boy was able to give the call handler the correct address, it saved police vital minutes in being able to send officers to the address straight away […]
Chief Superintendent Ade Adelekan, from the Met’s Command and Control Unit (MetCC), where 999 calls are handled, said: “Hearing this call brings home the importance of teaching your young child their home address and how to call police or emergency services in an emergency situation.”
