South Haven crews will use drone to find, rescue swimmers in trouble

Crews in South Haven will use new technology when there's trouble in the water.

It can take crew three to four minutes to reach the scene, two minutes to get someone on the water and then it can be difficult to find a victim in rough waters.

South Haven Area Emergency Services now has a drone that can drop a flotation device to a victim in the water.

The drone was purchased with a $7,500 grant from the Albemarle Foundation.
