Drone ‘lifeguards’ are latest addition to the campaign to stop people drowning on Spanish beaches, with an average of 400 people losing their lives in Spain every year.

The drones have an inflatable buoy on them which they drop into the water allowing a struggling swimmer to get hold of it whilst human rescuers reach the scene.
