Eine angeblich gehackte Drone ist auf eine Sportlerin in Australien gefallen und hat sie verletzt. Dürfte einer der ersten größeren Fälle sein von Verletzungen durch gehackte „Freizeit“-Dronen.

The filming drone was hovering above competitors in Geraldton's Endure Batavia Triathlon about 9:00am on Sunday when the operator lost control. It dropped about 10 metres, and competitor Raiji Ogden says it hit her and she fell to the ground.

Mr Abrams said an initial investigation had indicted that someone nearby "channel hopped" the device, taking control away from the operator. Channel hopping is a form of hacking which can render the drone uncontrollable to the original operator.
