New use for drones could fix your heart

  • A German non profit is planning on introducing a drone to save people's lives. Instead of spying on them, the drone would carry a defibrillator to remote regions to save heart attack victims. 

    It is meant to drop the defibrillator in areas that are challenging for ambulances to get to. 

    The charge of the 10-pound Defikopter would of course, have to be administered by someone else. The life saver currently costs about $40,000 and can travel as much as 43 mph for up to 6 miles. 

    If everything goes as planned, the drone would be fully operational in six months.
