Thermal imaging in action: police drone helps save a man

March 5, 2018

Last week the UK experienced temperatures going below zero during the day, which is quite unusual for the country. There was also lots of snow and many roads were either completely blocked or provided challenging conditions for the drivers. Some drivers were stranded on the roads overnight.

A police drone equipped with a thermal imaging camera helped to save a driver of an overturned car in Linconshire. The driver, at risk of hypothermia, was found in a ditch and taken to hospital.
