Michael J. Miraflor on Twitter/X:
My brother’s girlfriend’s cousin and his family were caught in
their vehicle in Maui while the wildfires suddenly erupted
No cell service, so Apple Emergency SOS was the only way they
could get in contact with first responders. Literally saved
Trapped in a car, surrounded by fire, no visibility. The screenshots of this exchange with emergency services had my palms sweating.
Worth a moment to remind yourself how the SOS feature works.
