The iPhone 5s was nestled in the side pocket of its owner's jacket when the accident resulted in a metal bar getting jammed into his side. Luckily for him, the iPhone 5s was there to take the brunt of the impact which probably saved his life. Considering that two people lost their lives in the crash, it looks like the phone was truly a hero device that day.
Imagine what would have happened if this gentleman had put his iPhone in the pocket on the other side of his jacket, or in a pants pocket. All of the little decisions you make each day, such as deciding where to put your smartphone when going out, could end up being the difference between living to see another day or reaching EOL status.
