Webcam saves mom!

Who says that webcams can't save lives? According to two sons from totally different parts of the world, one in the Philippines, one in Norway, were able to communicate and cooperate with each other and save their mother's life when they saw their mother passed out on a couch throug her webcam in California. Through the webcam they were able to call the police and ambulances, which promply came to the woman's house after the call.

"I thank that camera and my sons for my life," Karin Jordal told the Norwegian newspaper Bergens Tidende by telephone from her hospital bed.

"But now I see the Internet as a way to save lives. It's also a wonderful tool for people who live alone in some remote area, and might need help,"

So love your webcam, okay?
