Seattle police are looking to find the operator of a small drone that fell into a crowd of people watching Seattle’s pride parade, knocking one 25-year-old woman unconscious.

The woman was standing on the parade route near 4th Avenue and Madison when the 18″-by-18″ drone crashed into a building, plummeted to the crowd and struck her on the head. The woman’s boyfriend caught her as she fell, and an off-duty firefighter was able to help treat the woman until police arrived. According to KOMO, the woman was taken to Virginia Mason Hospital for treatment.

The damaged two-pound drone (estimated to cost $1,200) and photographs of a man who may have been flying the drone were given to the police.
