Man Rescues Dove Trapped In Tree Using Drone

A thoughtful videographer sacrificed his $1,600 drone in order to rescue a dove trapped in fishing wire. While out on a photoshoot in Sparkle Lake Park, Yorktown Heights, New York, Devin Groody noticed the bird was tied up and stuck in the branches of a tree overhanging a lake. Devin, 29, was on site to shoot a marketing campaign for a real estate firm on June 26, but when he saw the bird he knew he had to act fast. Putting his work on hold, he quickly realized the precariousness of the dove’s position. And after reviewing the situation, Devin felt the only way to rescue the stricken animal was by using his $1,600 DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone, which he initially flew up to the height of the bird. Then, with a swift movement, Devin was able to knock the bird out of the tree – but the drama didn't stop there. As the drone and tangled dove fell into the water, Devin splashed out to retrieve it, swiftly carrying it back to dry land. There, Devin untangled the dove, which he then released into the air – a gesture that received a round of applause from onlookers.
