Drones can save lives. The drone in this picture is a Zipline drone. It is being launched. A Zipline drone carries medical supplies. It takes them to people who are sick and far from help. A young girl in Africa was very ill. She needed new blood to get better. It would take hours to send the blood by car. Time was running out. So Zipline carried blood to the girl. It took only six minutes for the drone to fly to the hospital. The girl got better. The drone saved her life!
