An annual exercise for emergency responders in the Williamsport area scheduled for next week be based on a scenario that seems out of a science fiction movie: a drone attack during the Little League World Series. The mock attack Thursday will be based on a scenario in which drones disperse a chemical agent over a crowded stadium, followed by more drones dropping explosive devices as fans rush to the exits.

The exercise will be conducted on vacant land adjacent to the Williamsport Medical Center between 8 a.m. and noon. Nothing is planned to occur at the Little League complex in South Williamsport. The drill will include use of a command center and two drones to provide a touch of realism. FULL REPORT
