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]
