The University of Maryland has used a drone to deliver a donor organ to a transplant patient in a world first.
Surgeons at the nearby medical centre were then able to use the kidney for a woman who had been waiting eight years for a transplant.
The 2.8-mile journey took ten minutes and experts hope it will be just the first of many such deliveries.
