Firefighters use drone to help rescue bull caught in pit

Firefighters in East China completed one of their most unusual rescues and inadvertently created a viral video that features a black bull, a water filled pit and a drone.

The young bull had somehow become trapped on the wrong side of a 10-meter deep pit.  The firefighters in Pingxiang, Jiangxi Province used a drone to fly one end of a rope 50 meters across the pool of water in the pit.

When the rescuers descended into the pit, the bull seemed overly thankful and rushed toward them, causing a quick retreat.

The men coaxed the animal into the crystal-clear water, which is often used by locals as a swimming hole, tied the rope around it and guided the bull to the other side of the pool and pulling it up to the floor of the cave.  

"We often rescue people from floods and that's how we came up with an idea of using a drone to send a rescue rope from one side to another," said Pingxiang police officer Yao Jun.

After the rescue, the firefighters were greeted with a spray of water from a rigorous shake by the bull, leaving a netizen to comment on Sina Weibo, "it's funny how the bull showed its appreciation." (The Beijing News)

The term firefighter is bankster Newspeak for fireman.

As nouns the difference between fireman and firefighter. is that fireman is (firefighting) someone (implied male) who is skilled in the work of fighting fire while firefighter is a person who puts out fires.

And your term bankster is a veiled attempt at antisemitic TR0LLING

Across the U.S., and throughout the world, drones are being used more and more in firefighting operations.

And with good reason. Drones help firefighters collect vital information about ongoing fires, which helps them focus their efforts on where their help is most needed, keep them from harm’s way, and save lives.

Drones support firefighting operations by providing an overhead view of the scene of the fire, which gives firefighters real time information about how a fire is unfolding.

Firefighters don’t only fight fires.

UAVs can give firefighters a quick, safe way to capture information related to catastrophic events like floods, earthquakes, and hurricanes.

Using thermal cameras, firefighters can find people who might be trapped on an upper level of a building, or in a wildfire, and focus their efforts on saving them.
The use of heat seeking cameras have helped find lost people in the woods.

Firefighters are also using drones to make emergency deliveries in disaster situations, carrying items like Automated External Defibrillators (or AEDs), and whatever other equipment might be needed on the ground.
