Haiti: Man Says iPhone Helped Him Treat His Wounds While Trapped In Rubble

This story’s been getting a lot of attention in recent hours. Here’s how Wired magazine begins its version of a tale about modern technology coming through in a crisis

“Consulted this app, while trapped under Hotel Montana in Haiti earthquake, to treat excessive bleeding and shock. Help me stay alive till I was rescued 64 hours later. God saved me, and this app was one of the tools He gave me.”
