DRONES TO SPY ON NEIGHBORS-PKG


NAT POP

"These things are everywhere.really."

TRACK

at paradise hobbies in fort myers -- drones are the hot commodity.

SOT

"And a lot of people see things in the night sky and think oh my god it's a UFO or whatever."

TRACK

Chris Velez who works at one of the stores three locations says for about a hundred bucks you could own one too.

the craze is even hitting the radio.

RADIO TRACK

"Imagine seeing your neighborhood from a whole new perspective several hundred feet up. You may call them drones but paradise hobby simply calls them fun."

TRACK

with all these drones in the air -- many are worried about their privacy.

SOT Chris Velez, Paradise Hobbies

"We recommend people don't use it for the wrong reasons but of course you never know whose who. People are going to use it for dumb reasons."

TRACK

as for the legality --

SOT Benjamin Russell, Lawyer

"If you had somebody who was flying a drone in your airspace that you own, then that would be illegal as a trespass."

TRACK

attorney benjamin Russell tells nbc2 in sparsely populated areas like Florida, you own up to 500 feet of airspace over your backyard. Even if you spot a drone and file a claim, it may be difficult.

SOT Russell

"You have to find out who owns this drone, whose operating this drone, and that may be a difficult thing if you can't see them."

TRACK

for now it's a bit of a gray area -- but the faa is working on stricter rules and regulations. Just food for thought in case you hear a distant buzz overhead. In Fort Myers, NV NBC2. Return to index of stories...

32:19 this is actually a piece of my brain.

IF YOU COULD READ SHARON WARWICKS MIND-

THIS IS WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE.

Warwick

:32:21 its amazing.

IN MAY-- SHARON WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR A ROUTINE PROCEDURE BEFORE HEART SURGERY.

SHE ENDED UP HAVING A STROKE AND DOCTORS HAD TO PERFORM AN EMERGENCY OPERATION ON HER BRAIN.

Nasser Razack, Neurologist

:17:53 This entire side of the skull would have to be lifted.

DOCTORS DIDN'T HAVE TO CUT OPEN HER SKULL -- INSTEAD SURGEONS USED THE BI-PLANE TECHNOLOGY NEW TO LEE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL.

IT STOPPED HER STROKE IN ITS TRACKS.

Nasser Razack, Neurologist

:13:225 Time is brain. We say that all the time, so the faster we can

use these retrieval devices to pull out the clot the better the

patient does.

Hollie Hojek SU

:30:12 to give you a better idea, the surgeons are using something as

thin as a piece of hair to go up the blood vessels, once they reach

the brain they use this coil piece to pull out the clot. If you look

behind me you can see

that is Sharon's brain as they removed the clot.

Wawick

:37:25 its amazing I didnt end up like my mother who had a stroke and

never fully recovered.

JUST TWO DAYS AFTER THE EMERGENCY BRAIN SURGERY -- SHARON WAS OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.

DOCTOR NASSER RASZACK SAYS HAD THEY BEEN FORCED TO OPEN HER SKULL -- IT COULD HAVE TAKEN MONTHS FOR HER TO HEAL.

Warwick

:37:25 its an amazing aspect of surgery now, amazing.

ACCORDING TO DOCTORS THIS CLOSED-BRAIN SURGERY ALSO GREATLY REDUCES COMPLICATIONS THAT COME WITH TRADITION BRAIN SURGERY. Return to index of stories...
