A smart architect called Deadalus and his son, Icarus came to an island where a king called King Minos of Crete lived. So the king wanted the architect to build a labyrinth, so he did. But that wasn't enough for King Minos, so he kept them prisoners.
They were sad
So they made a plan on how to escape: The plan was ,because they were so high up in the sky they could collect the feathers from the bids that flew by in exchange for bread. that they were fed each day.
They then created wings out of the feathers that they have collected from the birds.
And the father got ready as well.
And they flew but the boy decided to fly very high and fell in the ocean to his death.
