We have seen instances before where drones have been used to drop flotation devices to swimmers of surfers in need. Oftentimes the drones were much smaller than the one used by DroneQ Aerial Services. In this case, they use an almost brand-new to first locate a swimmer in need and then second to drop a flotation device.

Using a drone to locate a swimmer in need and drop a self-inflatable flotation device can be life-saving in an emergency situation when seconds can mean the difference between life or death.
