Human Error Causes Drones To Fall From Sky During Light Show in China

During a recent light show in China, dozens of drones from a fleet of 200 suddenly fell from the sky. The crowd dispersed immediately after the incident, which the light show manager said was caused by human error.

Three minutes after all 200 of the drones took off, they started to fall one by one. The drone operators then carried out emergency forced landing procedures.

No person was harmed and no property was damaged due to the drone crash.

The drones were meant to be a part of a light show staged above a shopping mall in the city of Zhengzhou in China's Henan province.
