It's the satellite communicator that helped save the life of Nicole DeHaven when she suffered a heart attack while diving. After she began to feel unwell during a lesson, with chest pains and numbness, Nicole's husband Eric used his inReach device to co-ordinate a rescue, contacting the dive shop, emergency services, and the couple's son. She was quickly transported to a medical center for evaluation, then rushed to hospital for immediate treatment.

“Our inReach was the determining factor to her survival, full stop,” Eric said after her recovery.
