Teen credits iPhone app, Bible for saving her life

She chose to use the iPhone app Find My Friends to try to figure out Macy's whereabouts and drove to the location shown on her phone, but when she arrived to the location in the app Macy was nowhere to be seen.

"I can't explain watching the Global Positioning System on my phone, with the dot for my phone getting close to hers and then suddenly seeing the tire tracks", Ms Alexander said.

If you want to learn how to set up the "Find My Friends" app for the iPhone to help you track a relative or friend's location, WFMY-TV created a tutorial that you can view below. As Macy explained, she got into that position when her auto hydroplaned "and I went in between two trees and I flipped over and I rolled three times". Seven hours later, she was rescued from the vehicle. With her arm pinned under the vehicle, Smith said she couldn't find her phone, and that the only thing she could touch was her Bible.

"Having that location, if we didn't have that, we would have never known where to look". "I'm certain that that is what saved her life". "I was thinking of just different things I could do", Smith said. The only thing she could touch was her Bible. The sound of doors opening and slamming shut were followed by what Smith had been waiting nearly a half-day to hear - the voices of her stepfather and brother calling out to her.

"The whole time I knew they were going to show up and I'm so thankful for my family and we're such a tight family that I knew that I wasn't going to be there the whole night without them looking for me", Smith told TV station WXII.

Huawei returns to Microsoft Store
Now the lot has returned to the online store as if they'd never left, without explanation on the part of Microsoft or Huawei proper.

Concerned, the North Carolina mum tried texting and calling her daughter and only grew more afraid when Macy didn't pick up, calling the lack of response "out of character". "I do not deserve to be here right now, but God has bigger plans for me", she wrote. Macy's family communicated with 911, and used the app to pinpoint her location. But when her stepfather reached her and the pair held hands through the car's sunroof, the teenager said, her emotions overwhelmed her.

Macy has a fractured neck and lots of nerve damage in her left arm and a long road to recovery ahead.

"I held on to my bible and prayed harder than I had ever prayed before".

She believes she was spared for a reason and wants to encourage teens to use the location apps to share their location with family members.
