Did you hear about the drone who saved teen swimmers yesterday?

Lifeguards used drone technology to rescue a pair of swimmers from dangerous surf off the coast of Australia. The rescue took less than 70 seconds compared to the six dangerous minutes it may have taken a human lifeguard to reach the swimmers.
RESCUE FROM ABOVE
On its very first day in operation, a new rescue drone helped lifeguards save two teenage swimmers stranded about 700 meters (2,300 feet) offshore of Lennox Head, New South Wales.
See link.

Not until now. Wow. That's really great.
There are so many good uses for drones. Uses that will save many lives.
It's too bad there are also so many people that will abuse them.
Still, in my view, the good will outweigh the bad.


Ha! That video didn't have sound and I worried that mine went out again.
