“A Cairns mother has saved the life of her baby girl with the help of an unlikely hero – Siri, the iPhone voice-activated computer program,” Djuro Sen reports for Yahoo7 News.
“Stacey Gleeson saw on the baby monitor that her daughter had turned blue and discovered that one-year-old Giana had stopped breathing,” Sen reports. “‘I picked her up and sat down with her on the floor and as I checked her airways… I looked over and remembered my phone,’ Mrs Gleeson told 7 News.”

“In a panic, she had dropped her iPhone but thankfully remembered its voice activation function. ‘Hey Siri, call the ambulance,’” she yelled, prompting her mobile to automatically dial for help. ‘And then before I knew it the ambulance was on its way and Giana was breathing again,'” Sen reports. “Mr Gleeson, who is often away on duty with the Navy, said the few seconds of time saved could have made all the difference. ‘It might have given the precious moments Stacey needed to revive Giana,’ he said.”
“The parents of a now happy and healthy Giana are urging others to activate Siri on their phones,” Sen reports. “‘It’s helped save our daughter’s life and I never thought I’d have to go through something like that,’ Mrs Gleeson added.”
