Another emergency number but with an inspiring story behind it. A four years old boy from London named Roman, asked Siri to call 999 when he saw his mother unconscious on the kitchen floor.

The four years old took his mother’s phone, put her thumb to unlock it and then asked Siri to call ‘999’. The call was received by the police officers in London and it took them a little while to ask the four years old about his address and location.

The boy was successful in getting expert help for his unconscious mother as the police reached his home on time and rescued Roman’s mother.

She was then hospitalised, got treated there and she got out of danger. Oh Siri, I can see superman qualities in you!

Can’t say if the boy was smart or Siri but the fact is both of them were helpful in saving the mother’s life

Siri emergency number:

Do you know what does saying ‘112 to Siri do or saying hey Siri 17 Saying 112 to Siri will automatically call on 911 which is also an emergency number. So don’t try it unless you are really in an emergency.

Now the question is why does Siri call 911 when I say 112?

Well the answer is that 112 is an emergency number in the UK, and when you ask Siri to dial 112 it automatically dials 911 since it’s the emergency number in the US.

According to Siri you are asking for help when you say 112 so it will help you no matter whether the number is 112 of UK or 911 of the US, it will call the emergency to help you out. Oh Siri, that’s so sweet and caring of you! Right?
