Something goes wrong. You're in a crash. You're in an fire. The world turns to chaos around you. You can't reach your phone. You can't call for emergency services. But Siri can. And it did just that for Christopher Beaucher when he went to check on his mother's cottage only for it to explode around him.

Having services like Siri 911 or SOS, which can call for help when you ask — or when you press, if you can't ask — literally save lives.
