New York New Year Drone Plan Scuppered by Rain


Police plans to fly a camera-equipped drone over New Year’s Eve celebrations in New York City were ruined by rain.

The NYPD had planned to use a surveillance drone to monitor the annual party in Times Square for the first time.

But police chief Terence Monahan said the drone could not be safely deployed because of heavy rain and wind.

More than a million people celebrated new year at the Times Square event, which went without a hitch.
