Drones used to save people on busy beaches in Chile

In Chile, drones are being used to help lifeguards on busy beaches save people from drowning.

The drones are controlled from the beach and outfitted with a float, camera, microphone, and speaker.

Drones can get to the swimmers quicker and drop a life preserver so the person can hang on until help arrives.
