Can you imagine? Are you enjoying your favorite winter activity when things suddenly take a turn for the worse and your life is in danger? This terrifying scenario became a reality last year for William He Rogers from Somersworth, New Hampshire. You may remember seeing this article on WMUR. William was ice skating on the Falls River on a sunny day in March. Suddenly he fell into the ice and things got serious.
News sites reported that William tried to lift himself out of the water, but the ice continued to crumble beneath him. After wrestling for a few minutes, hypothermia set in. He tried to keep his composure and remembered he was wearing an Apple Watch. He called his 911 and said he would be 10 minutes longer before he was unresponsive. The good people at the Somersworth Fire Department wasted no time. They got there in five minutes, threw a rope at him, and pulled him to safety.
William’s ability to calm down in a moment when most people panic and fear for their own lives is very impressive! He credits his Apple Watch for saving his life. Without it, he probably wouldn’t be here today.
Apple heard William and featured him in an Apple Watch commercial. In the commercial, Bill reads a letter telling his story, along with others whose lives have been saved by this technology.
It’s a pretty powerful one. Can you look at it and not think, “Oh, I really need to buy an Apple Watch.” I know what I want for Hanukkah!
