A Flying Drone Spotted A Monk At The Height Of 175ft. What Was He Doing?

A Benedictine monk in Rhode Island, New England discovered the coolest way to relax and reached atop the wind turbine of Portsmouth Abbey School. Brother Joseph Byron, who was enjoying solitude, was spotted from a drone that was flying near the turbine. 

Kevin Miller (San Diego) who was vacationing in Rhode Island with his girlfriend noticed the monk sunbathing at the peak and instantly captured the photographs and video as well. He took drone closer to the turbine and waved his hand to say 'hello' to him. The monk who was lying, heard the noise of flying and sat up to look when the drone came closer to him. As he saw someone waving hands, he also did the same in return. 

Byron told media: It is not scary; it is peaceful, and the views of the bay are spectacular. I am not afraid of heights. Byron also told: It was a little annoying. It seems you cannot go anywhere to get away anymore. This amazing incident is going viral on the internet.
