A dad’s drone just helped him save his kids lives

All this dad wanted was to get some cool photos of his kids playing in the water, but instead, he got a glimpse of a large shark swimming towards his children.

New Smyrna Beach in Volusia County on the Atlantic coast of Florida is known as the shark-bite capital of the world. Professional photographer Dan Watson found out first-hand on how often sharks are in those warm Florida waters when he saw one only feet away from his children.

Dan and his wife Sally noticed the shadow swimming closer towards the kids, and they immediately ran towards them screaming to get them out of the water.

He captured this all on the drone and posted the photos on Instagram.

Without that drone, he may have not seen the shark coming. So should we all buy a drone?
