So, Apple immediately sent a message to the emergency number 911 and informed Mike about his physical condition. Officers arrived at the scene and rescued Mike Yeager.
Officials from the Summerfield local department, arrived on time and rescued Mike Yeager in distress. But, Mike Yeager wondered how the officer got to his house.
