Man's Life ACTUALLY Saved by iPhone

So this guy was trapped in the Rubble. He used the light of the screen to view his various injuries, and then used a Medical app on the phone to provide first aid. He had a broken ankle, and large lacerations on his legs and head. He used his clothes to bandage his cuts and create a splint his broken foot. He eventually found refuge in an Elevator shaft to await rescue.
I kind of had some time to do some self-diagnosis down there," Woolley said. "God was with me."
Not bad for a film producer who was in Haiti filming a documentary on efforts to help the nation's poverty-stricken children.Woolley also used his camera to take pictures of the surrounding rubble to piece together a way out. He eventually took refuge in an elevator shaft until rescue crews found him 65 hours after the earthquake.
"I took pictures all around me, then I would hold up the back of the camera to me and I could see what the picture was of a little," he said. "I was able to find an elevator in one of the pictures and that is where I decided to hobble to be in a more safe location."
Sorry if I sound a skeptical, but once it says that he's a "Documentary Filmmaker" and this morning scored a spot on The Today Show; visions of Balloon Boys' float through my head...
