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.

Several beaches, including some in the Murcia region, are now backing up lifeguards, saving valuable time in rescue operations.

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.
