Avalanche Saver / Resuce tool

Avalanche Saver
Avalanche Saver

There are always many people doing sports on snow mountain every year, but the avalanche has been the biggest threat to those people. When it happens, people can hardly prevent from being covered by thick snow, and rescue work always fails because they cannot see the victims under the thick snow. Avalanche Saver is equipment attaching to the bag that can eject a rocket when avalanche happens. The rocket flies to the sky and turns to be a balloon which will keep the string between it and victim hanging in the air. In this way, rescue team will easily find the victim by tracking the string.
