Lifelines is a short film from Google that looks at how the tech company has partnered with emergency services in Europe to help them locate people in need.

The film follows the story of Andi Gremmel, a climber and glider who fell from the sky during a trip up the lower Austrian Alps. He fell whilst gliding down the mountain and was in serious need of help. He called the emergency services, but the line was so distorted due to weak reception that they couldn’t accurately work out where he was.

But, the rescue team were able to locate Andi through new GPS tracking software made by Google. A search that would’ve normally taken hours or longer was completed in far less time and Andi was saved. Getting to injured climbers quickly is vital in the Alps, as temperatures can drop to seriously low levels at night. It’s an incredible short film from Google. It almost feels like something out of a big-budget action movie. We’re blown away by the cinematography on this one.
