In time, with the help of his young son, Icarus, Daedalus managed to escape from the tower, only to find himself a prisoner in the island. .
Daedalus then melted some wax and made it a skeleton in the shape of a bird's wing. The smallest feathers he pressed into the soft wax and the large ones he tied on with thread. They're the first people to ever fly
daedalus told him son, keep at a moderate height, for if you fly to low, the fog and spear will clog your wings, and if you fly too high, the heat will melt the wax that holds them together. Icarus was so excited he didn't listening to what his father said.
Frantically he fluttered his arms, but no feathers remained to hold air. Daedalus flew as fast as he could to save his son, but he was too late.
He gathered the boy in his arms and flew to land, the tips of his wings dragging in the water from the double burden they bore. Daedalus then buries Icarus and hangs up his wings in the God Apollo's temple.
Moral of the story is don't take too much risks or not enough . .
