Local reports say the Cleethorpes man was traveling when “a car collided with him and catapulted him in to the air.” After falling to the ground, the Apple Watch called emergency services, along with its partner.
“I kept trying to get up but I couldn’t, I was incredibly lucky. If I had hit the car a few more inches to the right, I think I would be dead. fell, my watch sent an emergency signal to emergency services and my partner.
“He detected that I had fallen and sent my exact location to both parties. He tells you exactly what happened and my partner was there within 15 minutes.”
The emergency services response was timely and they immediately treated some of the cuts and bruises Dixon suffered as a result of the accident.
Apple Watches, including the new Apple Watch Series 7, detect when a user has fallen and is not moving for a minute, then initiates the call to emergency services and the location data is transmitted to dispatchers. It’s a feature that has proven its potential countless times, and Apple is reportedly looking to extend it to car accidents as well.
