A man from Nevada credits Apple's Siri with saving his life after he crashed his car and was paralyzed inside.

Single father Nate Felix, from Pahrump, Nevada, traveled off-road in the desert with his dog when his jeep turned on a dry lake bed on December 7, 2018.

He told KSNV that he was trying to crawl away under the Jeep, but his & # 39; body was paralyzed & # 39; and he was not even able to lift his head.

Single father Nate Felix was paralyzed in his car after it was turned around in the Nevada desert. He was only rescued after he had asked Apple's virtual assistant, Siri, to call him

Felix said he was in the car and that he was in pain at the time.

& # 39; I left my dog ​​next to me and tried to think if I & # 39; It could stay warm at night, but after ten minutes I realized that I would not be able to stay warm enough, & # 39; said Felix.

Then he remembered his Siri-compatible iPhone.

Although he did not know where in the car it was, he said he started to yell at it.

& # 39; I had no idea where my phone was, so I called: & # 39; Hey, Siri, call that-and-so, call that-and-so, through someone I could think of, & # 39; said Felix, noting that & # 39; it can not train, can not connect, can not connect & # 39; was everything he heard.

In the end Felix asked the virtual Apple assistant to call emergency services for him.

So, I said, "Hey Siri, call 911" and it said, "Connect," & # 39; Felix remembered.

Felix said that at that time he thought of his 10-year-old daughter Dallis.

"Unfortunately she lost her mother to cancer and I had to come home", he said.

The Pahrump Valley Fire-Rescue Services responded to Siri & # 39; s call and came to pick Felix out of the jeep with the jaws of life.

The first responders placed Felix on a plate and he was then flown to the hospital where he stayed for four days before he was allowed to go home.

Felix said he broke two vertebrae during the incident and that they happened to be sitting on the nerve endings in his arms and hands, so now it feels like those parts of his body are on fire.

Felix is ​​now wheelchair-bound with a broken neck, but he said he & # 39; hopefully gets better, day by day & # 39 ;.

Rescuers said that if Siri 911 could not have called and Felix was stuck in the desert overnight, he probably died of hypothermia.

Felix's friend has set up a GoFundMe page to help his accounts and take care of Dallis during the estimated six or more months that Felix will be without work.
