iPhone first-aid app saves man trapped under rubble in Haiti hotel

image As he lay in excruciating pain under six storeys of masonry after the earthquake struck, US film-maker Mr Woolley, barely able to move, was so convinced he was going to die that he wrote a moving diary for his two sons and wife, thinking he’d be dead when they read it.

Mr Woolley had suffered head wounds and a fractured leg, and was trapped for 65 hours. But he never gave up hope.

He downloaded a first aid app that told him how to make a bandage and tourniquet for his injured limb and how to stop the bleeding from his head.

The app warned him not to fall asleep if he felt he was going into shock, so he set his alarm to go off every 20 minutes to keep him alert.
