The city’s beach patrol is using a battery powered remote controlled lifebuoy that propels itself to people in water.
“Even in today’s choppy and windy conditions the Dolphin 1 can still go to rescue, and in no time provides life-saving buoyancy to anyone in trouble.
Brighton Beach Patrol is the first in UK to use the device, it’s been paid for by local business.” Reported BBC News.
“We can deploy the Dolphin I into the sea without actually putting any of our rescuers in any danger. It’s going to increase the amount of people we can save from drowning, and it provides a few vital moments before the emergency service get there.” Said Louise Roberts, a member of Brighton Beach Control.
