Apple's Emergency SOS via Satellite and Crash Detection in iPhone 14 led rescuers to the car that fell 300 feet into a remote canyon
The accident happened on the Angeles Forest Highway in the Angeles National Forest in California. The vehicle fell over the side of the mountain almost 300 feet into a remote canyon. The iPhone 14 in the car detected the crash and then contacted rescuers using the Emergency SOS via the Satellite since there were no cellular signals available.
The two people involved in the incident sent an Emergency SOS via Satellite text message which was redirected to one of Apple's relay centers. Folks over at the relay center contacted the LA County Sheriff's department for help. The victims were located by the Montrose Search and Rescue Team and were lifted to safety with a helicopter. People involved in the crash were taken to the nearest hospital and treated for moderate injuries.
