Man Gets His Aerial Camera Stuck in the Arms of Lady Justice
If you ever try your hand at shooting photos or videos from the sky using a remote-controlled helicopter, do your best to avoid trees, tall buildings, and… statues. Ohio-based cameraman Terry Cline found out the dangers of statues the hard way this past weekend. While capturing aerial imagery, Cline got his flying camera stuck in the arms of a statue 100 feet above the ground.
Holly Zachariah of The Columbus Dispatch reports that Cline had been capturing promotional imagery of the Marion County Courthouse in Marion, Ohio this past Saturday at around 8pm when a gust of wind blew the aircraft directly into the arms of Lady Justice — the statue located at the very tip of the courthouse’s dome.so for now, visitors to the seat of the county’s government will be greeted by a statue that has a scale in her left hand, a sword in her right hand, and a camera cradled in her arms.
