As reported by News Center Maine, Dotty White’s accident occurred at an intersection in downtown KENNEBUNK. “It was a nice day, I’m on my way home with lots of nice groceries and bang,” Dotty said. “I’ve never been in an accident in a car — I’ve never even gotten a ticket in a car.”

Apple Watch’s Fall Detection feature immediately knew it was a hard fall for White, and it quickly informed her family and first responders of this fall.

According to White, “The watch dialed my son in Florida, it dialed my daughter in Massachusetts and my daughter in Maine. So they knew something had happened and they knew where it happened.”

Dotty’s son James White was notified about this fall via a text message; James called his sister, who sped to her mother.

James is glad that he got that message in time as he and his sister both knew where their mom was.
