"Two teenage boys were rescued by a brand new lifesaving drone in Australia while lifeguards were still training to use the device.The swimmers, aged 15-17, had got into difficulties off the coast of Lennox Head, New South Wales (NSW).
A member of the public spotted them struggling in heavy surf about 700m (2,300ft) offshore.
Lifesavers instantly sent the drone to drop an inflatable rescue pod, and the pair made their way safely to shore."
Drones can get someplace close fast and efficiently. This is an excellent use for quadcopters.
