A lucky woman who was knocked out for three days after falling down the stairs was saved because she had bought a new phone a few days earlier.
Beth McDermott abandoned her iPhone 6 due to the low battery life.
The 42-year-old player bought a Huawei Y6 at $ 119 to replace it.
But then she fell down the stairs of her apartment and was knocked out after bumping upside down.
She finally arrived three days later and was unable to move the lower half of her body.
Her new cell phone was by her side – still 50% – so she was able to call an ambulance.

Beth – who lives alone – is convinced she would have died if she hadn’t changed her phone.
She said that her iPhone would probably be exhausted and that she could not have sounded the alarm.
Celebrated intern Beth said, “It was the most horrible experience of my life, I can’t believe I’m still alive today.
“I was completely absent for almost three days.
“It was a miracle disguised this phone, especially for the price.”
Beth from Lancaster was tired of her old iPhone 6 – which she had had for a year – because it would need to be recharged after just a few hours.
She said, “Mine had a reputation for having poor battery life and it would go out constantly when properly charged.
“It was often extremely annoying because you had to charge it at least four times a day to keep it on.
“You would think that Apple would put much better batteries in their models, especially when they cost hundreds of pounds.”
Recalling the accident, she continued, “It happened in seconds.
“One second, I had to climb the first staircase, but the next, I tripped and fell down the stairs before I hit my head.
“Everything then seemed to go black.”
Then describing how she got there, she added, “I couldn’t move my legs and the rest of my body was in stabbing pain.”

Unable to move around or call neighbors for help, Beth reached out for her phone.
She added, “I didn’t expect it to work at all.
“I had just enough capacity to be able to contact my Huawei before pressing a button and I realized that it still had more than 50% of autonomy.”
Beth spent a week in the hospital.
“I was extremely confused and had regular hallucinations and often drowsy bad speech,” she added.
“I just couldn’t believe my phone was going to last three days, it was like a blessing in disguise.
“Huawei has had so much criticism recently because of the fear that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries.
“But in fact, their phones are fantastic, I wouldn’t have been alive today without that.”
Singleton Beth suffers from rhabdomyolysis, a condition in which damaged skeletal muscles break down quickly and can often cause chronic pain.
Beth added, “My recovery will take a little longer than usual and often I have to use a crutch to walk around.
“I often sleep on the couch because I’m so scared it could happen again.”
