    OUCH!
    Having said that if that is all that happens when a drone falls on someone's head what is all the fuss about?
    Just had a great idea! Maybe everyone could start wearing hats again like they used to in the good old days? Drones forcing people to become elegant again and have respect and manners!!!

    From the article:

    A woman watching a 5K in Quebec was knocked unconscious and had to be rushed to the hospital after a drone fell out of the sky and hit her on the head.

    Stéphanie Creignou, 38, suffered whiplash after the drone dropped out of the air and crashed down on to her head on June 11.

    She was knocked out by the impact and taken to a nearby medical facility.

    She said she has not been able to go back to work since being struck by the drone and has had to cancel a family vacation that had already been planned with her husband Eric Desjardins.

    Yikes. Probably didn't charge his battery all the way resulting in battery failure due to improper battery calculations

    It's a known issue with dji batteries that if you don't charge all the way, it gives inaccurate readings
