ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an amateur drone flying over an Albuquerque festival fell from the sky and hit someone.

KRQE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1dGayiz ) that the Albuquerque Fire Department says an amateur flyer was operating the drone above a crowd at the Heights Summerfest on Saturday.

AFD says the person hit by the drone was treated by paramedics but not seriously hurt. Neither they nor the Albuquerque Police Department could say who was flying the drone or why it crashed.

An APD spokesman says there are no charges and no report was taken.
