World champion ski racer nearly smashed by DRONE FALLING OUT OF THE SKY

New, comments

Once you see it ...

On Tuesday, world champion skier Marcel Hirscher nearly suffered a dangerous mishap during a slalom run at the Alpine Skiing World Cup in Italy. About 10 seconds into the run, a drone fell from the sky and just missed Hirscher.

And here it is in all of its terrifying glory in slo-motion.

Sometimes drones can be amazing pieces of technology, but other times, like this particular time, DRONES ARE BAD. Thank goodness Hirscher was fast on the slopes because holy f**king s**t that drone fell down fast.
