Raija Ogden reportedly sustained minor head injuries after the drone's operator lost control of the device.  The videographer operating the drone claimed the craft had crashed because an attacker managed to wrest control away from him. The drone was being used to film competitors in the Geraldton Endure Batavia triathlon in western Australia. Ms Ogden was treated at the scene of the accident before being taken to hospital where stitches were required to close a head wound.

Please remove props when working on your copter. If this can prevent one person from the pain, the humiliation is worth it. My wife who has been a nurse for 15 years said it is one of the worst lacerations she has seen. The doctor had to use a blood pressure cuff to stop the bleeding in order to stitch it. Its all the way to the bone.
