Australia to use drones to help rescue stranded swimmers

BY ANDREW THOMAS – Al Jazeera – JUNE 30, 2018

Later this year, drones will be used to help rescue stranded swimmers and to spot sharks that might be getting a little too close for comfort.

Every day in Australia, 30 people are rescued from drowning.

And saving lives is about to get easier.

Later this year, during the Southern Hemisphere summer, drones will be used to help rescue stranded swimmers and to spot sharks that might be getting a little too close for comfort.
