In this modern world, it would appear that we can’t get anything right. Just when you thought you were doing alright, something comes along to knock the wind out of your sails.

A 28-year-old reporter is claiming that his Apple Watch saved his life after the gadget notified him of a life-threatening blood clot. The watch alerted him to a sudden increase in his heart rate, one of the signs of a pulmonary embolism, which James Green, the reporter, had suffered from before. He immediately sought medical attention. As reported by the Daily Mail, after Green checked himself into a hospital, doctors found a potentially deadly clot in his lung. A pulmonary embolism prevents blood from reaching lung tissues and can be fatal in a manner of minutes. Green, who hails from New York, said in a post on Twitter: “Never thought a stupid lil wrist computer I bought 2 years ago would save my life.
