Automaton depicting life-saving invention

Here is video of another history-based coin-operated donation box automton created by Carlos Zapata. This one depicts Henry Trengrouse and his life-saving apparatus for ships wrecked near the coast. The device used a rocket to fire a line from the shore to the ship. Incredible!
