Rescue Team Uses A Drone To Deliver Life Belts To Stranded Anglers
Sometimes life can change in the blink of an eye and lead us on a path we’ve never expected it would go on. We never know whether the next curve on the road leads us to success or total damnation.
A dramatic video has emerged of a rescue team in China that is forced to use drones to provide life belts to anglers stranded by a flash flood. There was no other way these life belts were going to get to the anglers. The force of the current was too strong. The footage was shot on July 18 in Guangyuan City, Sichuan Province and it shows the anglers untying the life belts from the drones before they can be brought to safety on a speedboat. It looks like the speedboat is having a difficult time in the flood as well, which shows how strong and scary the current really is.
The first person was saved when the drone brought over a life belt and when the speed boat came shortly after to bring him to shore. After a few seconds of pushing through the current they were able to save the man. The second person was also brought a life belt by a drone, but he had to swim with it across the flood, a speed boat wasn't able to get through to him. As the man floats down the current, the rescue team makes a line in the water with a rope and saves him, awesome!
We don’t know the direction our day would take early in the morning. It is important to remember that nothing is set in stone and we may yet be surprised. These anglers might have thought that the day would go exactly as the one prior and in no way, shape or form were they expecting the turn out of that day.
Luckily for them, if there is one thing Chinese are very good at, it’s being inventive. They are the real problem solvers and they are able to find the fastest route to finishing every task. Saving other people’s lives is no exception.
Looking at this footage, we are not sure what really caused the anglers to get stranded in this sort of a situation, it might have been a dam breaking or some sort of flash flooding, but we are sure that the rescuers have everything under control. Who would’ve thought that drones would be the real first responders?! Technology has definitely come a long way, and it’s really important to learn how to use things in various ways. Just imagine all the things we could do as a civilization if we found these alternate uses of objects like drones. It could save so many lives.
