“The moment he hit us everything inside the car went airborne. My face took a horrible blow to the steering wheel, headrest, back to the steering wheel, and then to the window.  I blacked out for about a minute and could not see. My eyes were wide open but all I saw was black,” Anderson shares exclusively with Shape. “My hands flew around to feel for my phone and then I realized I had my watch on and commanded it to call 911.”

Moreover, the injuries from her car crash were severe enough to require medical assistance and to further assist her baby.

While Anderson’s son only suffered bruising and scrapes, her own injuries were more serious. “The ambulance arrived and immediately put me on a stretcher and stabilized my neck and back. I had a severe concussion that caused dizziness and confusion for several weeks, and drainage from my ears and nose because my brain was swollen. My neck has two ruptured muscles, and I now have two bulging disks that I am still seeking treatment for,” she says.

Kacie Anderson stated that she is blessed to have been wearing the Apple Watch at the scene. SOS on the Apple Watch is initiated when you hold down the side button for a few seconds. The call is automatically sent to 911 while a text message is sent to one of your emergency contacts. SOS is indeed a neat feature that comes handy at the time of need.
