OK. Drones.You've seen video from them on our show. They are being used in warfare.They are being used in space.We've talked about them, potentially delivering packages.

What about rescuing people who are having heart attacks. Could that ideal one day get off the ground?

One day, a drone might just save your life.

When you or someone you love is having a medical emergency, every second that passes is precious. Especially when it comes to heart attacks.

I think he had a heart attack.

According to the CDC, brain death begins just four to six minutes after cardiac arrest. And here in the U.S., only eight percent of people who suffer a heart attack outside the hospital survive.

That's where 23-year old Alec Momont steps in.

The Delft University of Technology graduate student is trying to use drones to cut response time in those crucial moments.

For his final project, he developed a sort of ambulance drone that he says can fly defibrillator up to 4.6 square miles in under a minute. That's a lot faster than the average ambulance response time here in the New York City, which is 9.5 minutes.

The drone is equipped with cameras to absorb and assess the patient, and also has voice communication to direct those on the scene. On how to treat the victim in those critical moments before medical personnel arrive on the scene.

But now, I was suspicious of the caller's ability to properly diagnose the patient. They may be a good Samaritan, but most don't boast a medical degree. What if it isn't a heart attack? How can they really tell?

Apparently, the defibrillator is equipped with sensors that can determine whether the patient is actually in need of a shock. The drones are expected to cost at least 15,000. And Momont estimates that his technology can help increase the rate of survival by 60 to 80 percent.
