Celebrating Seattle Pride at Sunday’s parade turned into a not-so-awesome day for one woman when she was knocked unconscious by a falling drone.
As the Seattle Police blotter reports, a 25-year-old woman was hit in the head by a small drone, about 18-by-18 inches, which fell from the sky after crashing into a nearby building.
The incident happened near 4th and Madison. The victim’s friends recovered the drone, which is estimated to cost about $1,200 and weighs two pounds. They also provided a description and photos of the drone operator to police. “Witnesses described him as an unshaven white male in his 20s, wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, cut off shorts. He also reportedly had a noticeable tattoo of a woman somewhere on his body,” according to SPD’s blotter.
At this point, drones might soon become the most hated newish technology outside selfie sticks.
