Drone involved in near miss in skies over Burleigh

Gold Coasters who currently own a drone, are being urged to pay extra attention to other things that are in the sky after one had a near miss with the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter.

The chopper pilot had to swerve to miss the drone which was flying over Burleigh Heads on Wednesday afternoon.

The drone was flying at the same height as the helicopter and came within 50 metres of colliding with it.
