Well, I'll tell you what...If that situation happens again, I don't intend to be a victim, robbed and beaten into a coma and on a ventilator in the hospital while my 5-year old daughter is holding my hand.
Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad your harrowing experience turned out alright.
I'd have a cheap Tracfone-like cell phone (pay as you go) as a backup when your smartphone is charging.
