Webcams…not just for porn anymore

It turns out webcams can save lives, too.

This AP story, tells the tale of a Norwegian artist who collapsed in her California living room. One of her sons in the Philippines just happened to check the webcam in that living room and saw her lying on a couch, unresponsive to his phone calls.

He couldn’t get through to the local emergency services so he called his brother, who was having breakfast with his wife in Norway. The wife, originally from Long Island, NY, knew exactly who to contact and the paramedics arrived within 10 minutes.
