Drones are all the rage in 2015, but, sometimes, they can be rather dangerous. The Kentucky Wildcats found that out yesterday morning before the team’s opening game against Louisiana-Lafayette.
According to USA TODAY, a student’s drone crashed into the newly renovated Commonwealth Stadium Saturday morning. The drone actually crashed behind the scoreboard as parachuters skydived into the stadium and the student was trying to get cool footage of the event.
Earlier this week, a drone crashed at the women’s matches of the US Open. No one was injured, but it did cause a delay of nearly an hour at the event.
This just goes to show that if you don’t know how to properly fly one of these things, then simply don’t. It’s going to get someone seriously hurt or even killed one day. Plus, it’s illegal to fly drones at sporting events now.
Last October, the Federal Aviation Administration reminded fans that flying drones is illegal at MLB, NFL, and college football games as well as auto racing events. This came after fans were arrested for flying the drones at Carolina Panthers and Texas Longhorn games months before.
