William Monzidelis says he is thankful to being alive today and that he owes it all to his Apple smart watch.
William was working at their family business, Bowlerland Lanes in Eastchester, a month ago when he passed blood in the bathroom. He says his latest model Apple Watch started going off almost instantly.
Doctors says that had William not gotten medical treatment as quickly as he did, he most certainly would have died.
“I was getting notifications from my watch telling me that I needed to seek medical attention immediately, my heart rate is going too high and too low, numbers that I’ve never had in my life,” William said.
Williams Mother Nancy recalls:
“I looked at his lips, they’re always pink like lipstick. ‘Your lips are white and blue, what’s going on?’. He said, ‘maybe I bled too much, my lips are never white and blue’,” Nancy said.
She got him in the car and drove to the hospital.
“When we got off the exit he started seizing, shaking his head, started projectile vomiting blood out of his mouth, his nose, wherever, then he passed out,” Nancy said. “His eyes rolled back and he was out.”
The Apple Watch is the most popular smart watch on the market today.
“I owe my life to that company, literally owe my life,” he said. “If I didn’t see that I would have gone back to my office, probably passed out, and that would have been it.”
William is still recovering from his ordeal. After two blood transfusions and an emergency endoscopy to cauterize the ulcer.
