A jet suit that could be worn by paramedics to help find people in danger in remote locations has been taken on a test flight in the Lake District – and is being hailed as a game changer.
It would mean paramedics could reach patients in minutes by 'flying' to them, rather than finding them on foot. Great North Air Ambulance Service and founder of Gravity Industries Richard Browning carried out the test flight.
It's hoped the 'flying medic' jet suit could be rolled out as early as next year. Watch the video to see the invention in action.
