WASHINGTON (WNB) - Authorities say the White House was locked-down early Monday morning when a drone crashed into the southeast side of the building. President Obama is in India, but First Lady Michelle and daughters where at home at the time.
Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said the unmanned drone narrowly missed an open bedroom window in the family's living quarters, hit a wall, then fell to the ground below.
"The device was flying at a low altitude before it crashed into the southeast side of the executive mansion around 3:08 a.m. Monday," said Leary. "The First Lady was startled by the noise, and helped us retrieve what appeared to be the drone's payload - a Honey Baked Ham and large bag of Gummy Bears."
Sources called off the lock-down shortly after analyzing the items.
