Man trapped in Haiti under debris uses iPhone apps to help him survive
An American filmmaker trapped in the earthquake in Haiti has his iPhone and his quick thinking to thank for still being alive. He used iPhone first-aid apps to treat his injuries until he was rescued 65 hours after being trapped. Dan Woolley was caught in a pile of debris following the quake. He treated a compound fracture of the leg using an iPhone first-aid app. Using the same app,  Woolley fashioned a tourniquet for his leg and a bandage for his head. With the first-aid download warning him against going to sleep after a head trauma, he set the iPhone's alarm to wake him every 20 minutes. All of these things helped because 65 hours later, a grateful Woolley was rescued. During the ordeal, Dan's wife tried to remain positive. She thought, "Wherever Dan was, God was holding Dan in the palm of his hand." And for Dan, in the palm of HIS hand was the device he used to find the information he needed to stay alive.
