Close Call of the Day: Guy Catches Drone Before it Lands In the Ocean

Ryan Chatfield was out playing with his drone on Floreat Beach in Australia this week, when its batteries died.

The videographer then sprinted after the expensive toy (he said it cost him over $2000) and managed to catch it before it took a dive in the ocean.

“I thought, ‘That’s it, it’s gone’ but I knew I just had to have a crack at it,” he told The West Australian.

And fortunately he was successful in his rescue attempt and just got a little wet in the process. He also chose the perfect song to edit into the clip using Enya’s “Orinoco Flow (Sail Away).”

We’ve seen lots of consumer drone fails over the past few years, including a guy who saved his DJI Phantom 2 from crashing into a pond at the last second.
