Police in New York City are looking for the owner of a drone that crashed through a window on a high-rise apartment building, home to a 66-year-old woman.

NYPD officials say the drone crash occurred around 3:15 pm on Saturday into a 27th-floor apartment in the Waterside Plaza tower overlooking the East River in Manhattan’s Kips Bay section.

Police say the woman living in the apartment was at her computer when the drone crashed through the window and landed just a few feet away from her. She wasn’t injured.

Police have recovered the drone, but so far don’t know who owns it. Their investigation is continuing.
