Drone crashes into reporter at Memorial Day parade, reporter surprisingly chill about it

What the hell did drones do this time?

A drone crashed into spectators at a Memorial Day parade, according to The Boston Globe. The drone was capturing footage of the parade in Marblehead, Massachusetts, and may have struck the wall of a building, before toppling to the earth.

One of the two people struck by the drone, The Boston Globe notes, was former NECN reporter Chris Yount, who had monitored drone regulation. "People went nuts because it's a drone," Yount told the paper. "I think there's a lot of controversy over licensing and operating drones."

Yount received and accepted an apology from the person flying the drone.
