Video: Washington County Search and Rescue finds new purpose for drone

Rescue – Island in the Sky

The Drone came in handy in a different function today. We needed a messenger cord up to the top of the mountain so we could use it to haul up supplies and ropes. Our line gun was 100 ft short of making it up the mountain. So, we used the drone to haul the messenger line to the top of the mountain.
