King Minos locked Daedalus in a high tower. With the help of Icarus, his son, he escaped only to find himself on an island.
Daedalus tried to leave by stowing away on a boat but King Minos was searching all boats. He decided to make wings from the feathers to fly off the island.
One clear, wind-swept morning, Daedalus and Icarus strapped on their wings and flew off the island and over the ocean.
Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly too high because the sun would melt the wax that they used to put the wings together. Icarus did not listen and kept flying higher and higher.
As Icarus rose higher into the sky the sun began to melt the wax and the wings began to come apart. Once the large feathers fell off, Icarus began to fall back through the clouds until he splashed into the water and died.
Daedalus pulled his son from the water and buried him on the island which he named Icaria after his son. He then built a temple for Apollo in Sicily and hung the wings as offering to the gods.
