- A drone rescued two swimmers off an Australian beach on Thursday Air Max Shoes Sale , a world first for the fast-developing technology that seems perfectly suited to saving lives at sea, authorities said.
The rescue took place as life savers at Lennox Head, a beach popular with surfers south of the city of Brisbane, were preparing for a training session on using drones to pull swimmers to safety.
The practice turned into a real rescue when someone noticed that two men swimming outside safety flags were in trouble in a three-metre (10-foot) swell, the government said in a statement.

Chris Paul scored an acrobatic basket with one second remaining as the Los Angeles Clippers stunned reigning champions the San Antonio Spurs 111-109 on Saturday to advance to the next round of the NBA playoffs.
Paul's moment of magic sealed a 4-3 series win for the Clippers who completed a fight back from 3-2 down earlier in the week to -extend their postseason.
The dramatic final twist came after Spurs veteran Tim Duncan had leveled with free throws with just 8.8 seconds left.
Paul gathered the ball in the half court, and eluded Danny Green before leaning away from Duncan to flick the ball in over both defenders to give the Clippers a sensational victory.
"That's a series for the ages," Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "It was clean, beautiful basketball."

"Six of the seven games were a grind; it was a great series."
Paul had exited for treatment to a hamstring strain in the first quarter before returning with 6:27 left in the second.
Despite the knock, he added 18 of his 27 points in the second half as the pressure mounted.
