iBlast: "An American filmmaker found himself in the massive earthquake in Haiti. Injured and needing to stay alive, Dan Woolley used his iPhone to keep himself alive long enough to be rescued some 65 hours later. "

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 does......id 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. This message brought to you by Reading Rainbow.
but i was lazy and i thought for sure i just seen head..ohhh welll he still couldve used his femoral pressure point plus direct pressure. to allow the blood to clot and stop bleeding tourniquets are for desperate measures cuz it can cut all the blood off to anything below it.....you caught my laziness i did read but only once and i guess not very thoroghly it doesnt matter the guys still a liar iphone will not last 65 hrs. prob wouldnt even last that long turned off lol.....
His a soldier for staying alive after 65 hours damn gonna get my self this app
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...
this guys trying to get free stuff from apple or something for good publicity or his a compulsive liar lol
Used the backlight to see? Set the alarm to go off every 20 min for 65 hours? Wouldn't the battery have died?
no doubt ... my 3GS only last a couple of days with light use
Well it clearly didn't.
can the battery even last that long
Am only being sarcastic lol can the battery even last that long ? Hell no lol
the battery on mine has a hard job lasting a day. 65 hours my arse.
If it was me I would probobly use it for something stupid like games or the lighter app/ibeer to keep myself entertained for those 3 days :P
hah i wouldve used it to listen to music lol considerin it doesnt take an app to know direct pressure stops bleeding lol
seems off in soooooo many ways.
I'd call someone :P or keep searching for bluetooth with my name as 'Help me' I don't know if Iphone has bluetooth... just what it'd do with my phone.
cool story to bad it seems fake.
