Watch: Rescue Drone Saves Swimmers in Australia

A pair of teens in Australia unwittingly wound up making history when  they became the first people ever to be saved by a drone while out at  sea.

The remarkable rescue took place in the waters off the village of Lennox  Head on Thursday after beachgoers noticed that the two boys had gotten  themselves into a rather precarious position.

Stuck in a nearly ten foot high swell almost a half-mile from shore, the exhausted youngsters were in dire need of rescue.

And, as luck would have it, lifeguards just so happened to be learning  how to operate a newly-unveiled drone designed for just such an event.

Check out video from the dramatic rescue at the Coast to Coast AM website.
