Drone crashes into house near San Diego, killing two children

An air-controlled drone crashed in a neighborhood in San Diego late Saturday, killing at least two children, authorities said.

The accident occurred about 2 p.m. in the area of the town of San Carlos, said Lt.

Mark Kelly, a spokesman for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities said the crash was caused by an unresponsive drone.

The children, ages 4 and 8, were taken to the hospital, Kelly said.

Police have not released any information about the cause of the crash, and a neighbor said the children’s mother had been in the house at the time of the accident.

San Carlos is a popular tourist destination.

The children’s grandmother lives on the property and is cooperating with investigators, Kelly added.

The cause of death has not been released.
