Rescue Stick is a baton-shaped portable life saving equipment which provides rapid flotation assistance to a person at risk of drowning. Once it touches water, dissolvable string bundles will trigger the inflation of the large horseshoe-shaped tube. This reaction should take no longer than few seconds. While the current rescue equipments are too big to throw far and accurately, Rescue Stick can be easily used by anyone, even a child. In particular, its baton-shaped design makes it easy to throw farther and more accurately. Simply throw it near the drowning person, and then it will turn into a life-saving floating device in seconds.
