Enter the rescue dragon

Robot builder Tmsuk make a 5-ton rescue robot capable of lifting an automobile. This winter, it was tested for use in rescuing avalanche victims.

The robot (which looks suspiciously like the lifting machine that Sigourney Weaver used to fight the queen beastie in Aliens) is named Enryu, which means "helping dragon."
