Apple’s AirTag has helped to rescue a dog that was lost in the major floods in California
Through the use of its Apple AirTag technology, Apple was able to assist in the recovery of a dog that went missing during the devastating floods that occurred in California. According to MacRumors, Seamus, an Australian shepherd who was one year old at the time, became separated from his owner when the two were out for a walk and ended up falling into a storm drain with strong currents.
After being carried into a flood control basin, Seamus became separated from his owner, but he ultimately worked his way out of an access tube and rejoined him. After being transported about one mile away from his original location by the drainage network, the dog became stranded at the bottom of the access tunnel.
It was said on the Facebook page of the San Bernardino County Fire Department that both the Apple AirTag and the traditional ID tag “aided rescuers and owners in tracking the pup and reuniting them.”
It was reported in November last year that the tracking gadget was successful in assisting a lady in the state of Florida in locating her lost dog. Denise, the dog’s owner, didn’t discover that the pet had vanished until an hour after the canine had fled the premises. After that, she remembered that she had placed an AirTag GPS tracker in the collar of the dog, and eventually, the dog was located in an animal shelter that was located twenty minutes away from her home.
