USS Chancellorsville Hit by Drone

United States Navy ship got "attacked" by its own drone. A guided-missile cruiser, USS Chancellorsville, got hit by an aerial target drone off the coast of southern California on Saturday afternoon, November 16th. Two sailors were mildly burnt in this incident. 

Actually that drone was under tracking of 2 Navy ships. The unnamed drone is a part of a training exercise. But the drone malfunctions and hits the USS Chancellorsville. 300 people were on the ship at the time of hitting. But no serious injuries were reported.   

A Navy spokeswoman, Lieutenant Lenaya Rotklein for the U.S. Third Fleet, said, "No person was seriously injured."

USS Chancellorsville was then returned to the San Diego Naval Base. The ship will be repaired there. US Navy has started investigation of this incident.

Such drone incidents are likely to increase as more and more of these flying robots are built and used. Do we have to start wearing helmets when we are outside?
