An Apple Watch saved the life of a woman buried alive by her husband

A woman was able to call the police via an Apple Watch before she was buried alive by her husband in a forest, NBC News reports. The incident happened in the US city of Seattle.

The victim was attacked in her home by her 53-year-old husband, Chae Kyong An, after he told her he wanted a divorce. The man hit the woman, then bound her with duct tape. In a moment of the attacker’s carelessness, his wife managed to alert the authorities via the smart watch she was wearing.

Kyong An caught her and destroyed her smartwatch with a hammer, then took the woman to a nearby forest and buried her in a shallow grave.

Apple has introduced new features to protect users, on the iPhone 14 family of smartphones. The phones have a road accident detection system. Crash Detection can identify four different types of accidents – rollover, side, front and rear impact – and alert emergency services.
