Sending Out An SOS

Filed under: — Kate @ 3:06 pm EST

I was watching some tv show last night where a woman was being abducted. She was trapped in a car trunk, and calling for help from her cell phone. I guess her abductor heard this, so he stopped the car and got rid of her phone.

That got me to thinking… shouldn’t there be some way to send a 911 text message? Or even email? There are lots of instances where it would be easier to summon help while remaining hidden and safe if you didn’t have to talk. Just a thought.

    You could text someone else, even if 911 don’t have a SMS receiver.

    Well, I certainly thought of that. And given the current options, I would do just that. But you’d have to rely on that person to read the message in a timely fashion. That’s a big leap when you are in imminent danger.
