image for Introducing the Phone that Saves Lives

The Director of Spain's Emergency Medical Services unveiled the latest communication innovation -- The Life-Saver Phone. Madame Director, Juanita Baracuda, declared that this new device will save thousands of lives annually.

"It takes your pulse when you press your fingers on the receptor, and sends the results to a 24-hour medical call centre. If your pulse is too fast or too slow or too irregular, an ambulance will come to the rescue following the phone's GPS signals. All that for just 900 Euros annually."

One reporter asked what would happen if the phone detected no pulse.

Senora Baracuda replied, "Then, for 100 Euros more, your phone will be directed to the undertaker."
