Colorado Rescue Team’s UAV Spots Lost Hikers and Pup
Colorado’s Douglas County Search and Rescue (DCSAR), a nonprofit rescue group operating under the authority of the Douglas County Sheriff, is crediting a drone with spotting two lost hikers and their dog.
According to a press release from DCSAR, the team was dispatched last Thursday to the Devil’s Head area of Pike National Forest. After hiking the trail for several hours, two men and their dog had found themselves lost after accidentally leaving the trail. With nightfall approaching, limited water and cell phones with limited remaining power, the two men decided to call 911.
