A drone light show organized to celebrate the inauguration of a shopping mall in China resulted in a total disaster when the devices began to rain from the sky in the middle of the show, hitting buildings and vehicles on the ground and leaving people running for cover. In a video that was shared from the drone light show, people can be heard screaming “be careful” and “back off” as they ran from one end of the street to another, seeking shelter from the drones falling to the ground, minutes after the light show began. There were as many as 5,000 people on the streets including women and children gathered to see the light show. 

'More and more came off,” said a spectator

A spectator of the light show, speaking to a global publishing house said, "More and more drones came off,” and added, “Some flew very far away, and some hit the trees. The eye-witness said he would still watch drone shows in the future. “They are still quite impressive,” he said. “But I will keep a safe distance.” It was reported that seeing the drones falling from the sky, the organizers and staff members let people take refuge inside the mall when the drones started falling. Later, they assembled to pick up the drones from the streets. 

It’s unclear what exactly caused the accident. An organizer told China News Services that “operation errors” might have led to the fall, and no injuries had been reported.
