A Patrol Robot At The MRP Realty Office In Washington DC, Fell Into A Water Fountain Inside The Complex

Knightscope K5, a patrol robot at the MRP Realty office in Washington DC, fell into a water fountain inside the complex. The actual reason why the robot did, what it did is unclear, but the Internet has started calling it a ‘suicidal robot’.

Maybe it was. Or Maybe the 5ft 300-pound machine was just trying to refresh itself by getting closer to the fountain, just like the humans do. But things didn’t go as expected and it ended up sleeping with the fishes.
Our D.C. office building got a security robot. It drowned itself.

We were promised flying cars, instead we got suicidal robots.

It's a fun day here at @gmmb. The super high-tech security robot at our office complex has had a mishap.
Thankfully, the workers at the office complex got to know about the incident and they were able to rescue K5. However, the final status of the patrol robot’s health is yet to be known.
Knightscope, the company which sells K5 security robots, called it “an isolated event” and told CNET that an investigation is going on. Meanwhile, they would be shipping another K5 this week for free.

According to an MRP Realty spokesperson, the robot is a part of a pilot program which involves eliminating bugs and such incidents help them discover the areas where improvements are needed.
