Words With Friends Saved A Man From Death

The ever-addictive word game cherished by word fiends and Alec Baldwins everywhere has a new star on its sleeve: it prevented a heart attack, sort of!

Australian Georgie Fletcher was randomly matched up with Missouri woman Beth Legler for just another game of Not Scrabble, Ozarks First reports. Unfortunately, Fletcher started to experience symptoms of a heart attack. Fortunately, Legler's husband is a doctor, recognised what was going on, and told Georgia to get to a hospital ASAP, which may or may not be a permissible word in WWF.

He lived! This one feat compensates for the countless frustration heart attacks Words With Friends has caused over the years. [Ozarks First via Mashable]


    Ummm.... how did they know he was having a heart attack?

    It seems they may have used WWf's messaging function to discuss the situation.

      Hmm, that's not really made clear in the article at all. I don't play WWF (I don't have an iPhone) so I originally thought he was playing words in the game like 'help'.

        A cheap journalism trick! This is exactly what they want people to think so that they go to the article to investigate further!

    Sooo....his name is Georgia???

    Wasn't this article posted last week? *scratches head*
