One year-old UK boy Oscar Webb has lost an eye after he was hit by a remote-controlled quad-rotor helicopter.
According to BBC Watchdog, the drone clipped a tree before hitting the infant.
The drone’s operator was a family friend named Simon Evans, who said the drone was up for about 60 seconds before he brought it down to land – clipping the tree on the way down.
“The next thing I know I’ve just heard my friend shriek and say, ‘Oh God no’ and I turned around and just saw blood and his baby on the floor crying,” said Evans.
Oscar’s surgeon said the youngster will “lead a normal life” growing up, and is expecting a “good cosmetic outcome” once he heals.
