BERLIN (AP) — A camera drone had a rough landing in front of Chancellor Angela Merkel at an election campaign event in Germany after police told its operator to bring down the craft.
Photos from the event in the eastern city of Dresden showed Merkel looking on in amusement as the small orange drone went down on its side about 2 meters (7 feet) in front of where she was sitting.
City police said a 23-year-old man had sent up the drone at the open-air event Sunday in hopes of taking photos that he could then sell. Officers told him to land the drone, which he apparently did in great haste.
The man was briefly detained but quickly let go as police determined that he and the drone posed no danger.
