Seattle Great Wheel Hit By Drone

An unmanned drone crashed into the Seattle Great Wheel on Wednesday afternoon, though no damage occurred to the 175-foot tall Ferris Wheel. Police noted that no injuries occurred as a result of the drone, which fell to the ground after colliding with the wheel, crashing through a table. Police are investigating the incident, which took place about 4:45 PM, and it is unclear at this time who was controlling the drone. Police say that drone accidents are unusual in Seattle, but this is the second time one occurred this year. At Seattle's Pride Parade, during the summer, a drone flew into a downtown building, tumbling to the ground and striking a woman in the head. Police were able to identify the man controlling that drone, and he was charged with reckless endangerment for the incident.
