ITHACA, N.Y. -- The GPS on a woman's cell phone helped rescue crews locate the missing person after she fell from a trail on Sunday.
According to the Ithaca Fire Department, the woman was walking her neighbor's dog when she slipped and fell. She called 911, and was located thanks to her phone's GPS system.
The dog was able to find rescuers, and lead them to the woman's exact location. Officials credit the woman for having her phone with her while walking alone. They also commended the dispatchers for using the GPS, and the dog for helping to find the woman.
