San Francisco Fire Department rescues drone from a tree

Here, kitty kitty

Today in news that is very San Francisco: the local fire department's list of provided services now apparently includes drone rescue. Unmanned aerial vehicle enthusiast Eddie Codel pointed out this amazing scene on Twitter, in which a team of five firefighters work together to dislodge a drone from a tree.

The rescue took place in July, but SFist notes that lately San Franciscans have been losing drones all over town. Enthusiast forums are filling up with complaints about "flyaways," the favored term for vehicles that stop responding to commands and declare temporary independence. It's nice to know that when they do, SFFD has your back.
