WATERHILL, Tenn. — A Middle Tennessee teen is alive, thanks to Siri.
Eighteen-year-old Sam Ray says the voice recognition service on his iPhone — famously named Siri — called emergency dispatchers after his truck fell on him while he tried to make repairs.
Ray told media outlets that a jack collapsed, pinning him under nearly 5,000 pounds of metal in a location where he couldn’t be easily seen or heard. He says he was trying to get free when he heard Siri activate.
“I said ‘Call 911,’ and that was all it said,” he said.
