An NBC affiliate in Miami, Florida has a report about an American film producer, Dan Woolley, who was trapped in the ruins of a hotel in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti during last week’s earthquake. Woolley used the light from his digital camera to examine his broken foot and head wound. He then used a medical application on his iPhone to look up how to dress his wounds, which included a broken foot and a head wound, according to the report. Woolley said that during the 65 hours that he spent in the ruined hotel’s elevator shaft, he also looked up symptoms for shock using his iPhone medical app. Woolley told his story to NBC in the video clip below:
