For those who think that a BlackBerry is a meddlesome and intrusive device, think again, because one just might save your life as it did for one woman in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania .
Two days ago, Mae Wilkerson, 57, was kidnapped and assualted by masked intruders and locked in the trunk of her car after parting ways with her friend and neighbor, Robert Scott, following an evening of dining at a local restaurant. When Wilkerson’s son hadn’t heard from his mom in two days he contacted the police who questioned Scott. During the interrogation Scott remembered he’d left his BlackBerry Curve in Wilkerson’s car and the police were able to track it and the vehicle’s location and her.—KNB
