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.
