Buried in Haiti rubble, U.S. dad wrote goodbyes – But with iPhone info, he treated his injuries and was rescued after 65 hours
Woolley had taken refuge in an elevator shaft, where he used an iPhone first-aid app to treat a compound fracture of his leg and a cut on his head. He had already used his digital SLR cameras focusing light to illuminate his surroundings, and taken pictures of the wreckage to help find a safe place to wait to be rescued or to die.
Writing the notes to his wife and children wasnt easy, the deeply religious man said.
Boy, I cried, he admitted. Obviously, no one wants to come to that point. I also didnt want to just get found after having some time God gave me some time to think and to pray and to come to grips with the reality. I wanted to use that time to do everything I could for my family. If that could be surviving, get out, then I would. If it could be just to leave some notes that would help them in life, I would do that.
And I thought the iPhone’s best use was saving me money with the Red Laser app…. boy was I wrong. This makes me want to always keep my iPhone charged.
I’m downloading this:
But in case you don’t already have this installed – do check out the Red Laser app as well!
