    Drone shocks nudists at Swiss waterpark - The Local



    Andrea Bauer, a spokeswoman for Migros-Aar, which owns the Bernaqua waterpark, confirmed to daily 20 Minuten that clients had reported a drone above the exterior ‘relaxation’ area outside the nude sauna on several occasions.

    “A customer told a lifeguard, who warned the security guards,” she said.

    It’s currently not known whether the drone had a camera attached, Bauer added.

    It’s not the first time such an incident has happened, she said, adding that the park is taking the situation very seriously.

    “The people who visit that area [of the waterpark] are naked or wearing few clothes. Protecting their privacy is therefore all the more important.”

    The park has informed the police, confirmed Bauer, since flying a drone over a crowd is illegal in Switzerland without specific authorization.

    The Bernaqua waterpark is attached to the Westside shopping centre on the outskirts of Bern.

    It has two sauna zones – one for women-only and one mixed – both of which are nudist.

    Earlier this year the University of Neuchâtel launched a three-year study into the impact of drones on life in Switzerland, aiming to consider issues related to privacy, individual freedom, security, terrorism and the growing digitalization of daily life.

    Nudists take issue with someone seeing them naked? Isn't that what they want?

    Thankfully, I haven't seen that many nudists. But the ones I have seen should be wearing clothes. A lot of clothes.

    Ain't no "porn" at a nudist park. More like spying on Jabba the Hutt. Don't pack a lunch...

    We don't want to be seen by others naked... we want the freedom to be naked around like minded people. While there are some people who are easy on the eyes, some others are average just like most people. Like you said, you don't want to see them and thats why they have nudist resorts. :D

    Nah, just use your imagination. Include visions of sag and droop.

    This was in Germany. The Phantom has built-in sag and wrinkle removing camera technology!
