Lifeguard Drone Rescues Two People

Rescue DroneA lifeguard drone in Australia has managed to rescue two swimmers of the coast of New South Wales caught in 9 ft swells.

Little Ripper Lifesaver makes You Little Beauty life saving pods and attaches them to a drone.  They have pods for land, water and snow. The water or marine pod contains: a water activated inflatable lifebuoy, SharkShield electromagnetic shark repellent, whistle and sea anchor.

Once the swimmers were noticed it took under 2 minutes to get the drone up and drop the pod.  A lifeguard would have taken about 6 minutes to reach the swimmers. The pod instantly inflated once it hit the water.
