Drones are used in sports for tracking the player’s current location and condition. But sometimes it can be the cause of disturbance in your concentration and that’s what happened with Skiing Champion Marcel Hirscher.
This time, a falling drone camera almost crashed into Marcel Hirscher, who is a four-time World Cup skiing champion and Winter Olympics medalist, it happened in a slalom race on Tuesday in Italy. Basically, the drone was carrying the broadcast equipment and it hit the snow at full speed while Hirscher was in the middle of his run. Luckily, the drone missed making contact with him by a mere couple of feet.
According to the Associated Press, Mr. Hirscher said “This is horrible,” after the fracas. He also said, “This can never happen again. This can be a serious injury.” And people wonder why the FAA wants to keep a close eye on consumer drones.
We can see here, that sometimes the technology we invent could become a danger to our lives, and it could cause potentially life-threatening situations for others. So every piece of technology should be checked before being used, to avoid any unnecessary risks.
