Apple’s Emergency SOS activated by the company in the US and Canada helped in saving a stranded man in Alaska. According to reports, Alaska Department of Public Safety confirms that Alaska State Troopers rescued a stranded snowmobiler. The rescue operation happened on December 01 after the person activated the Emergency SOS function on his iPhone. The report clarified that the Apple Emergency Response Center reached out to the Northwest Arctic Borough Search and Rescue department with the exact GPS coordinates of the stranded man. A team of four volunteers was then dispatched and tracked him down. As per reports, Apple’s Emergency SOS feature is currently live in the US and Canada for Apple users and is expected to span across France, Germany, Ireland and the UK later this month.
