It seems celebrities are not immune from drone accidents, just like Enrique Iglesias, who recently was reported to have caused himself  a minor incident involving a drone.

A representative for the singer said in a statement to The Associated Press that Iglesias was “semi-treated” after the accident at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding on Saturday night.[…]”During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident,” the statement read. “He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show.”  – Read more here:

Indeed, that is one attraction of drones for hobbyists and professional photographers with interest in providing extraordinary aerial photography services — to get amazing POV shots. However, no matter what purpose users have for drones, one should proceed with caution.

Celebrity or not, one must mind careful handling of a drone, and in this case, perhaps grabbing a flying drone was rather a reckless stunt to do, while at the same time, a wrong way to model it, to the viewing public.

The Droneologist affirms: “Drones do not hurt people; people hurt themselves.”
