Civilian Drone Crashes in Manhattan
A small camera-equipped drone reportedly crashed into a New York City sidewalk on Monday evening, narrowly missing a businessman who was heading home from work. The unmanned aircraft, identified by ABC 7 New York as a "Phantom Quadcopter," was apparently zipping around taking scenic footage of Manhattan's skyscrapers before it plummeted into the pavement. An anonymous financial analyst who was nearly hit by the radio-controlled craft removed its video card and provided it to ABC 7 on Wednesday.
