Woman knocked out by drone at Seattle Pride parade

Something like this was bound to happen with the wreckless people buying drones without any awareness of safety....


A woman was knocked unconscious by a small drone at Seattle's Pride parade on Sunday.

Police say she was in the crowd near 4th Avenue and Madison when the drone crashed into a nearby building and fell onto the woman. Her boyfriend caught her as she crumpled to the ground.

An off-duty firefighter treated the woman and called for police.

One of the woman's friends gave officers the drone and handed over pictures of a man who may have been piloting the aircraft.

Officers placed the 2-pound drone and photos into evidence and are trying to find other witnesses who may have information about the suspect.

The pilot is described as a white man in his 20s with facial hair. He was wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, and cut-off shorts. He may also have a noticeable tattoo of a woman somewhere on his body.
