Feature Request - capabilities to signal for help when in distress, emergency

When someone's fallen and can't get up, Alexa can reach out to emergency services or an emergency contact. For example, dial 911 on the phone associated with the account. Or, establish an emergency contact in Alexa settings that can be "paged" (called/SMS/emailed/whatsapp/etc) to signal that help is needed. This is basically a request to provide capabilities similar to lifealert, where an person could use Alexa to signal a distress call.

This would be a huge win, especially for older users; my parents have mentioned to me that the Echo is a pretty popular item in their retirement community.
