Man dies hit by remote control helicopter in Switzerland

Some children's toys can cause accidents as serious as the "real" versions of the objects on which they are inspired. The most recent proof of this happened in Lucerne, Switzerland: A 41-year-old man was found dead after being hit by his own remote-controlled helicopter.

The unnamed victim was found at night by a pedestrian who told police. The boy had marks of cut wounds on his arms and head, and beside his body was a miniature helicopter model Gaui X7, which can cost up to $ 2, 800. So far, there have been few recorded deaths worldwide from accidents with these miniatures.

Police have not yet filed the case, as only longer analyzes should confirm the cause of death. The found remote control model, which you see in the image above, is 1.34 meters long, weighs 2.3 kg and has propellers that can reach 400 km / h.
