A mother of three suffering from epilepsy was rescued by her Apple Watch after she had an attack while alone at home.
Kate Donald, from the northern beaches of Sydney, was home alone in May when she had an epileptic seizure due to lack of sleep.
Fortunately, Mrs. Donald did not remain unconscious for long, because the Apple Watch she was wearing sent a message to her emergency contact – her husband Ben.
Donald received a message that his wife had fallen when the Apple Watch Series 4 discovered that she had fallen.
The gadget automatically calls triple zero if the wearer has not moved for a minute.
After the emergency call ends, Mrs. Donald's watch sends a message to her emergency contacts with her location.
Mrs. Donald told news.com.au that she and her husband thought the Apple Watch could be useful.
Mrs. Donald said that after she got pregnant with her youngest, eight-month-old Tilly, she was in the hospital regularly and fell a lot.

& # 39; We thought, "What can we do?" We get a panic alarm like old people have, but you have to be aware to press the button and I am not, & she said news.com.au
& (39) (The watch) warned Ben and then he called a neighbor and she called a few people on the street because she was not at home and they knew the pin code for our house.
& # 39; They called in and called an ambulance, but the ambulance said: & # 39; Hold on, someone is already being sent to the address & # 39;. & # 39;
Donald received real-time text messages that told him exactly where his wife was when she was taken to the hospital.
After the trial, she spent four days in the hospital, which she thought would have been harmful if her Apple Watch hadn't been there.
The epileptic seizures of the mother were so bad in the past that she was unconscious for hours before she was found by someone.
Mrs. Donald has credited her close group of neighbors because she has helped so much in getting epilepsy.
She said the whole street is now being used to have an ambulance arrive at her home.
Mrs. Donald's eldest child, seven, is also well aware of what he should do if he ever sees his mother attack.
When he was only three years old, Jack sounded the alarm after she had had an attack – making him the youngest child in NSW to call an ambulance.
The three-year-old mother stayed in hospital for four days after the trial, which she thought would have been harmful without her Apple Watch
