TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Plane crash survivors rescued thanks to iPad

We tend to take technology for granted. Using our iPads and smartphones for silly videos and social media. When sometimes it can be life saving.

Like it was for this father and his 12-year-old daughter who survived a small plane crash in eastern Pennsylvania last Sunday. Because they were stranded in them middle of the woods they almost died of hypothermia.  Eventually rescue teams were able to find them all because the daughter had been using an iPad.  They were able to ping her device to figure out their location. Both dad and the daughter were rescued and are doing well now.

Let this be a lesson to always make sure those devices are charged up.
