[Telecom] siren being heard by cell phone

A story today on KYW news radio web site (title is "Buxco Cops Save Man Trapped Under Car") has this tidbit about use of cell phone to locate an accident victim:

The victim was in a junkyard and became trapped under a car which fell on top of him. He used his cell phone to call for help, but then the phone went quiet (he apparently became unconscious).

An officer who responded turned on his siren, drove around the junkyard, and told the dispatcher to listen for the siren becoming loud. That soon happened, and the victim was found. The location was "like two or three cars back", so it would have taken much longer to find the victim without the siren/cellphone scheme I just described.
