Israel Testing UAV Ambulance

The Israel Defense Force is testing a new UAV called the "Air-Mule" that's being used as an unmanned aerial ambulance for emergency evac. It's a pretty cool little vehicle that can pull injured people out of some tight spots that conventional aircraft can't reach. I wonder if the US has something like this.

Urban Aeronautics, the company producing the UAV, is one of the world's leading companies in the development of propellers which are installed inside the aircraft instead of outside. The advantage of this location of the propeller is that it allows the aircraft to carry out a wider range of operations in narrow places as well as opposed to conventional airplanes and helicopters which can only operate in open areas.
