Daedalus made wings out of wax, feathers, and thread, so he and his son could escape. Daedalus, warns his son, Icarus, about how to fly at a moderate height. "If you fly too close, to the sun, the wax will melt, but if you fly too close to the sea, the water will clog your wings," said Daedalus.
"Father, father!! My wings have melted, and I'm in danger!"
Icarus is flying, but isn't thinking about what his father had told him.
Icarus flies too close to the sun, so the wax that holds his wings together, starts to melt.
Icarus cries out to his loving, brave, father, Daedalus, for help.
Since the wax couldn't hold the wings together anymore, feathers started to fall from the sky.
