Rescue Drones Being Trialed By Surf Life Saving NSW

On Thursday morning, rescue drones were unveiled at Lennox Head as part of a collaboration between Surf Life Saving NSW and the State Government. In a world first just hours later, one of the drones was used to rescue two teenagers that had been caught in a rip at the beach, dropping a flotation device which allowed the exhausted pair to cling on and swim to shore. Brent Manieri from Surf Life Saving NSW joined us on The Daily to talk about how this trail is leading the way for the use of drone technology in saving lives on our beaches.
