A UK dentist has apologised after being reported to the police for using a drone to deliver medicine to a patient, reports the expressandstar.com.
Willows Dental and Implant Centre in the village of Wombourne, near Wolverhampton, posted a video on Facebook showing a drone flying through the sky carrying a box. The post said the antibiotics was delivered on May 1st within seven minutes with the drone flying at 27mph. But yesterday the practice posted an image of a police car online with an apology after being reported for using the drone.
The post said, “As a dental practice that’s constantly pushing the boundaries in patient care, it seems in carrying out drone deliveries of essential medicines to clients in need during lockdown, we upset some people on social media that take drone flying very seriously and reported us to the police. We can assure you that no one was hurt, our patient is out of pain and it wasn’t our intention to upset anyone. “
The post continued, “We genuinely thought we were helping people in lockdown and didn’t think we’d be interfering with any planes in the sky. So for those of you that reported us to the police, consider our knuckles rapped. We’re sorry, for thinking too far outside the box.”
