An 18-year-old man from Murfreesboro, Tennessee had his life saved by accidentally ‘butt-dialing’ Siri on his iPhone after being pinned under his truck. Hayley Mason reports.

Eighteen-year-old Sam Ray says the voice recognition service on his iPhone, named Siri, called emergency dispatchers after his truck fell on him while he tried to make repairs.

Ray tells media outlets that a jack collapsed, pinning him under nearly 5,000 pounds (2,270 kilograms) of metal in a location where he couldn’t be easily seen or heard. He says he was trying to get free when he heard Siri activate.

He says: “I said ‘Call 911,’ and that was all it said.”

Rutherford County dispatcher Christina Lee says she first thought it was a mistaken pocket-dial, but then she heard his screams for help and sent crews, who rescued him.

Ray and Lee met Friday for the first time after the July 2 incident.
