Man Self-Treats Wounds Using First-Aid Apps

With all the tragedy in Haiti, heroes are being made every day. For one man, that hero was his iPhone, believe it or not. Dan Woolley, a U.S. citizen from Colorodo Springs, credits his iPhone with saving his life while he was trapped underground beneath the rubble of the Port-au-Prince hotel in Haiti. He was trapped with a compound fracture to his leg and a laceration on his head.

Using his iPhone, Dan was able to use first aid applications to diagnose his injuries and stabilize them using pieces of his own clothing until rescuers could dig him out.

It’s a pretty neat story.
