Stacey Gleeson, of Cairns, Australia, couldn't believe what she saw as she passed her daughter's room. Her 1-year-old daughter Giana, suffering from bronchitis, was struggling to breathe, and turning blue. As the mom ran into the room, fumbling for the light, she dropped her smartphone on the floor.
Gleeson knew she had to call the ambulance, but with her iPhone across the room, she didn't know how she'd manage. Until she remembered the "Hey, Siri!" function that lets you activate Apple's voice assistant remotely. The mom of two got Siri to call an ambulance and put the EMS on speakerphone. Then she started CPR.
When the ambulance got there, the baby was breathing again. But Gleeson was so grateful for the minutes she saved with the function, she called Apple to thank them. And while the Australian mom previously thought Siri was just a fun feature, she told the BBC.com she now has it turned on all the time.
