Interesting Story

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know all about the recent earthquake in Haiti. Most of the stories surrounding this disaster are pretty heartbreaking, but this one is definitely one of the more optimistic. This guy was trapped under the ruins of his hotel after the earthquake for almost three days(!) and survived using the medical application on his i-Phone! After looking up things like how to treat broken bones and excessive bleeding and using the alarm feature to prevent himself from falling asleep, French rescuers finally pulled him out of the rubble. Funny how in many cases technology (ie. Cell phones) and the distraction they create, cause many fatalities, but in this case it prevented one!

He should consider himself extremely fortunate, because according to recent reports, 200,000 people have died and millions are homeless and still desperately seeking food and medical attention.
