WATCH: First-ever life saving drone

A couple of teenagers get into some surf beyond their abilities off Australia's coast. An onlooker observed their struggle and notified the Lifeguard.  Instead of jumping into the surf, risking his own life for a six minute splash and dash; the Lifeguard grabbed The Little Ripper. A piece of tech which was still in the box just hours before. 

This is the Little Ripper.

 

And for the first time ever, at least which we know of, a drone has saved a life or, in this case, two of them. Oh, and it records its own rescue as it drops a life pod into the water...about sixty seconds from report to rescue.
