Drones Could Pose a Threat at Super Bowl

The Department of Homeland Security is working to protect the Super Bowl game from the possibility of a drone threat.

Authorities believe drones could be a security concern during the Super Bowl at the University of Phoenix stadium.

There will be F-16 planes patrolling during the game, and if a drone were to approach the stadium, security would close the roof, ABC 15 Arizona reports. The Department of Homeland Security is working with a drone expert to protect the event.

The biggest threat involves a drone crashing and hitting people in the stadium.

Drones are not allowed to be flown within 30 miles of the stadium.
