Defibrillator Drone Saves Men’s Life During Heart Attack in Sweden

When a 71-year-old man was having a heart attack on his way home, he was helped by an attentive neighbor who, while calling 112 and giving him a heart massage, received precious help from the EMADE program – the aerial delivery of a drone with a defibrillator. The victim is at home, safe and sound and grateful for technology and speed.

A 71-year-old Swedish man can now give thanks for being alive – in part – to a drone that, within three minutes, brought a defibrillator home while he was having a heart attack. This is the first time in history that an autonomous drone has helped to save a patient’s life.
