Webbed Glove / rescue tool

Webbed Glove
Webbed Glove

When we rescue refugees, who are buried by stones and sands, machines can’t be used in this kind of situation, hands are the only tool rescuers can use.

However, it is difficult to remove sands by hands. When we use normal gloves, sands may drip, which slow down the rescue process.

Webbed glove is just like a webbed duck foot that can help us dig and remove earth more efficiently.
