Coach saves basketball player’s life with an iPhone app

A fast thinking, iPhone-wielding coach saved the life of one of his basketball players who had a cardiac arrest in the middle of a basketball game.

Xavier Jones was unconscious on the floor of the basket ball court when his coach, Eric Cooper Sr.,used the instructions in PhoneAid on his iPhone to resuscitate Jones who was having a cardiac arrest.

It’s not every day that a $1.99 application saves a life, but that’s exactly what PhoneAid may have done. This may be a good opportunity to refresh your CPR skills a little bit, and for $1.99, you don’t really have an excuse not to. It could save a life. You can read the full story on the LA Times website.

You can also purchase PhoneAid on the App Store for $1.99.
