Normally you don’t expect an injury that leads to a lawsuit… at a wedding! But what wedding planner includes drones in the wedding reception? And so the story goes…
A groom recently married in August is now facing a lawsuit by two of the wedding guests, who claim that they were hit in the head by a drone that he flew during the wedding reception. You might want to read that unbelievable sentence again.
The defendant and his wife were married at Searles Castle in Windham, New Hampshire. The “fairy tale” wedding included using a drone to snap reception photos from high above. Unfortunately, the drone crashed into two of the guests and the two women claim in their lawsuit that they were injured by the drone, while they were dancing. (Mass Live)
One of the women says she suffered a concussion and fractured her nose and orbital bone. The other plaintiff contends she suffered a gash requiring 20 stitches. They both claim they have suffered permanent injuries. The groom admits owning the drone but claims he was not operating it.
I guess the moral of the story is, if you are thinking of buying a drone for Christmas, you might want to go with the Nerf toys instead. And for wedding planners… stay with the rice! Just a holiday thought.
And for the Christmas spirit, here’s pic o’ day:
