A drone crashed one meter away from Marcel Hirscher during the ski Word Cup in Italy.

MADONNA DI CAMPIGLIO, Italy (AP) — A drone crash near four-time defending overall champion Marcel Hirscher marred a World Cup slalom ski race that Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway won by a massive 1.25-second margin on Tuesday.

The drone carrying a TV camera for the broadcast crew crashed to the snow during Hirscher’s second run just behind the Austrian.

While Hirscher may have been hit by some small pieces, he didn’t appear to notice.
