Has anyone ever been killed by an RC heli?

I'm not talking the LHS talk of some guy with a large scale heli chopping his head off. Are there any confirmed cases of death?

Yes, I am aware of at least 1 confirmed death. There was this person who got hit by a larger 50 or 90 size heli in hong kong and unfortunately, the person died.

A few years ago a fellow was killed by a 30 size heli while teaching someone to hover! The blades hit him in the neck and killed him.
Please don't confuse my experience with pessimism!
Protos 500, HCP100S, Raptor 50, many more!
