This world first seems like a real game changer. Lifeguards in New South Wales Australia today (Thursday) rescued two swimmers with an inflatable raft dropped from a drone.


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).

Lifesavers instantly sent the drone to drop an inflatable rescue pod, and the pair made their way safely to shore.
