Nevada Man Says Siri Saved His Life When He Was Paralyzed and Trapped in Car Crash

Nevada Man Says Siri Saved His Life When He Was Paralyzed and Trapped in Car Crash

A Nevada man says his iPhone’s Siri feature saved his life after he crashed his Jeep in the desert. Nate Felix had flipped his vehicle over into a dry lake bed in Pahrump, Nevada. Felix was trapped, in pain, and unable to get out. Siri helped save his life, but not before a bit of frustration.


“I tried to crawl out, but my whole body was probably about 80 percent paralyzed. I couldn’t even lift my head,” Felix told KSNV.

His dog stayed next to him, providing warmth, but Felix didn’t think he could survive the night. That’s when he shouted at his phone for help.

“So I yelled, ‘Hey Siri!’ Started yelling, ‘Call so and so, call so and so,’ going through anyone I could think of,” Felix said. “It didn’t work out. It said, ‘Cannot connect, cannot connect.’ So I said, ‘Hey Siri, call 911,’ and it said, ‘Connecting.”

Felix says he thought about his 10-year-old daughter, Dallis, the entire time. “I have a daughter, you know? Unfortunately, she lost her mom to cancer… I gotta get home,” Felix said.

First responders used spreaders to pry open the Jeep’s door and extract Felix from the wreckage. He spent four days in the hospital. He says he broke two vertebrae, which affected the nerve endings for his arms and hands. “So it feels like my arms are sitting in a fireplace.”

Felix is currently in a wheelchair, but is determined to recover, “Hopefully getting better day by day,” he said.
