Israeli scientists saving lives while muslims contribute only chaos and hatred and blame
Hovering to the rescue: The remote-controlled flying stretcher
A remote-controlled 'flying stretcher' that can rescue accident victims and bring them to hospital is being developed by scientists.
The high-tech invention can take off and land vertically, hover and climb to 10,000 feet.
The beetle-shaped vehicle also has four wheels to enable it to cross rough terrain.
Each 'stretcher' can hold up to four patients plus an on-board medic and has enough power to stay airborne for up to three hours.
Called the Med-Evacuation Aerial Vehicle, it was developed by Israeli scientists as an unmanned rescue device to help retrieve soldiers injured in war zones without putting the lives of others at risk.
But experts behind the new aid say it is also designed for use in accidents, where ambulances or helicopters cannot gain access to injured victims quickly enough to boost their chances of survival.
