MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (AP) - No charges have been filed after two people were hit by a drone flying over a Memorial Day parade in Marblehead.

Witnesses tell police a man was flying the drone over the parade Monday when it struck the side of a building. They say the drone then plummeted toward the spectators.

Scot Yount suffered minor cuts after the drone hit him on the back of his head. Another woman was also hit by the drone. They weren’t seriously hurt.

The drone’s owner told police he has flown it numerous times without issues, and was very apologetic.

Yount says there should be licenses required before people can fly drones over crowds.
