HYANNIS, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- An Apple product is credited with saving a Hyannis teenager's life.

Paul Houle, 17, told FOX25 that he ended up in the hospital after his Apple Watch showed his heart rate jump to over 100 beats per minute during football practice.
    
Doctors found Houle's heart, liver, and kidneys shutting down, all because of a muscle injury that was releasing protein into his blood stream.
    
Houle is still recovering from the ordeal. He said that if wasn't for his Apple Watch, the problem would have gone untreated and could have killed him.
