I'll get those details to you.
We've had other incidences where the older spots with the easily triggered 'help' buttons would get pushed accidently.. >:-(
To add to the rigmarole the coordinates we get from these call centres in the Dallas are sometimes quite far from where the subject actually is, due to terrain and signal strength..
We got one from the middle of a lake, so had to get boats, swiftwater people mobilized, etc.. Then it turns out he's nowhere near water, bumped it by mistake..
