April 14 (UPI) -- A man flying his drone on a Jamaican beach said the device was almost lost for good when it was knocked out of the air by a pelican.

The drone was recording video of Seven Mile Beach in Negril and the footage shows a pelican come into frame and crash head-on into the drone, apparently an intentional attack.

The owner of the device, who had launched it from more than 4 miles away, said luckily the drone had a soft landing in the sand, so he was able to recover the device and its footage.

"I was lucky to get it back and thank God I did cuz I got a pretty good video," the owner wrote.
