Mom Uses Location-Tracking App to Find Daughter After Car Accident

A North Carolina mom is crediting the "Find My Friends" app for saving her daughter's life after she had crashed her car down a ravine in North Carolina.

Catrina Alexander said she knew something was wrong when her 17-year-old daughter, Macy Smith, missed her curfew. When it became obvious that she wasn't coming home she used the "Find My Friends" app and found Macy pinned under her car after she fell down a 25-foot embankment.

She explained how she used the GPS on her phone and suddenly saw the tire tracks leading off the embankment. The car hydroplaned before flipping over and rolling three times. Smith said she had been trapped there for about seven hours.

Both mother and daughter are encouraging others to download the tracking technology in case of an emergency.
