British police found a man in the dark in the middle of the night, using an infrared camera on a drone. He had wandered away from his car following an accident, and had hypothermia. He was found lying in a ditch.

I've remembered that BBC videos are often blocked to viewers outside UK, so apologies if you can see only the text of the article.

Nice to know that our police will go to that much effort to help when we need help, not so sure about the safety of flying a large drone in darkness with no visual positioning, hope they had some good lights on it for maintaining VLOS and landing!

I'm sure they did as the police officers piloting these drones are professionally trained and qualified to do so.

Was able to see the video fine in USA... Thanks for the great news. Life saved, and positive news for a drone.
