Richard Browning, founder of jetpack developer Gravity Industries, conducted a casualty response exercise at the top of Trascaului Mountain to test their “Browning” jetpack in cooperation with the Emergency Situations Department (DSU) of the Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs. During the exercise, the jetpack managed to reach the top of the mountain, which that takes two hours to climb on foot, in just two minutes while carrying the defibrillator device to be used in the intervention of the casualty.

“Every minute is important in intensive care cases such as cardiac arrest, as in this exercise,” said the company.

“It is a wonderful technology that can save lives,” said Raed Arafat, Head of the DSU.
