WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A parent will often leave vital information about their child for a babysitter, in a large binder. However, if a babysitter cannot access this information at any time, it will not help protect the child.

As a nanny, former University of North Carolina Wilmington student Annalee Carter, realized this was an issues. It inspired her to develop a mobile application to make a child's vital information accessible at anytime.

"Rescue Me" was developed a year and a half ago, but as if this week, it is available on Itunes for free.
