Reports: Man killed by remote control toy helicopter in Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A 19-year-old man died in Brooklyn Thursday afternoon after suffering a serious head injury, according to the New York Police Department.

CNN affiliates report the man was killed after an accident involving a remote control toy helicopter.

CNN affiliate WABC cites sources saying the man was decapitated by the chopper blades, while CNN affiliate WPIX's sources say they took off the top of the man's head.

It's unclear if the victim was flying the helicopter or was a bystander.

Police would not confirm either report, but said paramedics who rushed to the scene pronounced the man dead on arrival.
