California Lifeguards Use Drones to Look For Sharks Near Shore

For many, summer means a trip to the beach, and on the West Coast, they now have a unique way of keeping beach-goers safe from shark attacks, like the ones North Carolina.

Lifeguards along the California coast are now using drones to keep watch over the water.

Within ten minutes of launching their eye in the sky, ten to as many as a dozen sharks were spotted close to shore.

A local lifeguard says the drones help them see what’s going on in real time.

Those beaches will stay open as long as lifeguards see that the sharks are not aggressive.

People are still asked to be careful and to be aware of their surroundings.
