‘It just takes one mistake:’ Lost floaters rescued by drone in northeast Iowa

FLIR search and rescue

Upon arrival, the Decorah Fire Department deployed a drone. Thanks to the aircraft’s thermal imaging camera, it was able to locate three of the women within 10 minutes.

Without the drone, Kerndt said, “It would’ve been really hard to find them.”

“In years to come, I could see almost every fire department having one,” he said. “It gives you another view on things that you don’t normally get to see.”
