Drone Help Finds Man Suffering From Heart Attack
Search and Rescue Will Continue To Use Drones To Help Those In Danger
It is truly amazing how drones can instantly make a chaotic situation more manageable.
A 20-person team was searching for a grandfather and granddaughter who were stranded in a logjam on the East Fork of the Des Moines River. David Penton, emergency management coordinator for Kossuth County, could faintly hear the cries of the missing persons, but the setting sun was making it more difficult to see them amid the thickly wooded riverbank.
So Penton called a colleague and had him rush to the scene with a drone.
Within three minutes of takeoff, they’d found the duo by watching the live stream from the DJI Phantom’s camera. The drone then hovered overhead so that the first responders could use its location to guide them to the grandfather and granddaughter.
