A woman who had a stroke while on a FaceTime video call with her sister, says the technology saved her life.
Opokua Kwapong, who lives alone in New York, was on a call with her sister, Adumea Sapong, in Manchester, when Mrs. Sapong noticed that her elder sibling “didn’t look right”.
She raised the alarm after she also noticed her sister’s voice was slurred.
Ms. Kwapong said she had not realized how serious the situation was.
The 58-year-old had woken from an afternoon nap when Mrs. Sapong had called her on FaceTime, a video calling feature on iPhones.
