Drones are conquering more and more spheres of our lives, and they could soon replace rescuers and save drowning bathers too. A unique model invented by police officer Dani Olmo was tested at Cunit beach in Catalonia on Wednesday. The drone can reach a drowning bather in less than a minute and drop a lifebuoy to him. It is also equipped with a live camera that could be useful for preventing drownings, the control of marine animals, and water pollution.
