considering if he was gunna use a tourniquet to stop a bleeding head wound he'd have have to tie it around his neck to stop the blood lol. u dont uses an fin tourniquet to stop a bleeding head wound its called direct pressure. tourniquet are used on limbs when direct pressure fails, and pressure points fail. and u have to take them off every 45 mins if theres anything distal cuz itll die from lack of blood to the tissue. how bout take a 10 day first aid course, obviously that app doesnt even know what a tourniquet is and like to know how an iphones battery lasted 65 hours straight and who's to say it was fully charged when he was caught in the earthquake........ my lg voyager barely lasts a day lol

Uhm... did you even *read* the story? I know it's dreadfully long and full of, you know, words... so lemme just point out the important bit that renders your comment meaningless:

"And thanks to the iPhone first-aid app he’d downloaded, he knew how to fashion a bandage and tourniquet for his leg and to stop the bleeding from his head wound."

Two injuries. His leg (tourniquet) and his head.

His a soldier for staying alive after 65 hours

damn gonna get my self this app

dragunrising3224d ago

I'd like to know how his phone had juice for 65 hours...

My guess is that he downloaded the app first and turned his phone on sparingly. Otherwise, there is no way. Glad he made it out alive.

He needed an app to know how to tie something around a wound?

I'm amazed the battery lasted long enough for the alarm to go off every 20 minutes...

Used the backlight to see? Set the alarm to go off every 20 min for 65 hours? Wouldn't the battery have died?
