Drone captures escape from Maui flash flood

Renee Lusano captured the dramatic and life threatening rescue from a waterfall hike called “Commando”. She posted with this video: “None of the shots once the river started flooding were intentionally captured or composed. I only operated the drone to keep it high and nearby as I fled to higher ground. I nearly crash landed and lost my bearings several times because of the thick trees and my inability to focus on piloting the drone while simultaneously climbing to escape the rising water.” She goes on further in her blog, “Suddenly without warning there was an enormous rush of water coming over the waterfall, it had to have been instantly 50 times as much water rushing over, and the water was flowing fast.”
