Div­ing ‘ bul­let’ to rev­o­lu­tionise surf life­sav­ing

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND life­savers could soon be us­ing a new jet- pow­ered res­cue “bul­let” that rock­ets through the surf and dives un­der­wa­ter.

The Ger­man- made Se­abob de­vice can dive up to 40m be­neath the sur­face and res­cue as many as 10 peo­ple at once. It un­der­went tri­als by state life­sav­ing bod­ies this week and could be un­leashed on Queens­land beaches this sum­mer.

Se­abob Aus­tralia op­er­a­tions man­ager Oliver Volante said it could “rev­o­lu­tionise” life­sav­ing.
