An NBC’s Today Show host shared a Tweet on Friday which includes a video about a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) member Rachel Neal, which Apple iPhone saved 8 lived in the Pacific Ocean.
Apple iPhone Saves 8 Lives In The Pacific Ocean
Neal, together with her boyfriend and some other people were on a boat which was on its way to a private island off the coast of Okinawa. Suddenly, their boat broke in the middle of the sea and all eight passengers donned life jackets and jumped in the Pacific Ocean.
The incident occurred and Rachel was so lucky as she had her iPhone on her. No one’s phone was working as they were all damaged by water. Besides, this is how Rachel’s iPhone (model unknown) was the source of identification for rescuers. The passengers were tracked and saved by the Japanese Coast Guard after passing 90 minutes in the Pacific Sea. Miracle, all eight passengers were saved and came out of water unarmed.
In fact, we believe that it might probably be an iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone XR, XS or XS Max. These are the top Apple iPhones that sport high IP rating. Meaning that they can resist water for a certain good period of time without shutting down.
