DJI releases interactive ‘Drone-Assisted Rescues Worldwide' map – Finally, it is here! DJI's Adam Lisberg once told me how much work it was to chase, verify, and compile the news stories in which drones played an often crucial role in helping to save somebody's life. Today, DJI released a global map that showcases all the known Drone-Assisted Rescues Worldwide. 413 lives have been saved with the help of drones in 234 incidents in 24 as of today. This is a great initiative as it helps drive the point across that drones are not only the safest form of aviation but also help in saving people's lives. I would add to this that in doing so, drones are still massively underused. Supplying more across the world with more unmanned aircraft would go a long way in rescuing even more people.
