Tot trapped in well saved by clever use of iPhone4/4/2012
A two-year-old in China owes his life to some smart thinking and a smart phone. The tot fell down a well in Mengzi City, launching rescue efforts that were aided by an iPhone on a string. The phone's camera helped rescuers figure out how to best tie a harness that had previously kept slipping off. Once in place, the kid was brought up and, voila, touching rescue moment caught on tape. A Daily What commenter wasn't going to let the irony of a Chinese child being rescued because of an iPhone pass without snark, writing, "I wonder if the kid had actually assembled that exact phone at work."
