British cyclist Jay Dixon said that if it weren’t for his Apple
Watch detected his fall and automatically called for rescue. He may not be alive anymore. Jay Dixon, a cyclist in Claythorpes in northeastern England, was knocked down by a car when he tried to turn on a side road. The collision caused him to fly off his bicycle, and his Apple

He told the local news agency GrimsbyLive, “I was thrown into a concussion on the spot. The driver came to see me, but I was very tired and my consciousness gradually blurred.”
“For a moment, I was lying on the ground and I thought,’Should I wake up or should I continue to lie here?’ I kept trying to stand up, but I just couldn’t do it. My luck was incredibly good. If I I collided with the car a few inches on the right and I thought I was dead.”
“When I fell, my watch sent an emergency signal to the emergency services and my emergency contact, and sent my exact location to both parties. The device told them exactly what happened, and my partner took 15 minutes It’s here.”
Dixon said that he now has wounds and bruises, but plans to return to the bicycle as soon as possible.
