A Rescue Robot from the Tokyo Fire Department

This rescue robot from the Tokyo Fire Department is performing a drill with a manikin. However, I don’t like the way that it is dragging the victim up the ramp by his neck.

Good Lord! Please don’t let that robot rescue me!!!

This is one of several interesting robot photos in The Big Picture at, which focuses on News Stories in Photographs. The caption there reads:
