Facebook Saved a Woman's Life

Cindy Lincoln was folding laundry when she fell and broke her femur. Because she was in immense pain, Lincoln couldn't reach a phone. Instead, she logged into Facebook and posted a help message that saved her life.

The phone was in the kitchen, the laptop was in the room she was in. Her decision was obvious, get to the easiest method to find help. It's times like these where we're reminded of the options we have to stay connected with one another, Facebook can sometimes be easier than making a phone call.


Lincoln posted a 911 call for help in a Facebook Group filled with her friends and family. A daughter-in-law noticed the post and rushed over to her house the next morning, bringing help with her. Maybe I should make a Facebook account now...oh wait, I have Twitter. [WPTV, Image Credit: WPTV]
