Firefighters Try to Shoot Down Camera Drone With Their Hoses
Here’s what the incident was like from the drone’s point of view:
Angry (and possibly drunk) neighbors aren’t the only ones attacking camera drones these days. Yesterday, a man named John Thompson took his drone to a structure fire in New York to capture some aerial shots of the fire company battling the blaze.
12-minutes into the flight, the firefighters on the ground suddenly began trying to shoot the drone out of the sky with water from their high-pressured fire hoses.More: Firefighters Try to Shoot Down Camera Drone With Their Hoses
In a blog post, the drone owners write that the “extremely inebriated” neighbor actually committed a felony by damaging their drone since it’s valued at over $500 (in California anything over $900 is felony vandalism).
