Elderly Man Gets The Shock of His Life Seeing Drone

A terrified farmer has lashed out and ran away to protect himself and his cattle during his first encounter with a flying drone.

Serkan Demirel was flying his camera over farmland near the village of Sırakonak, Turkey, whilst attempting to film footage for a commissioned project on August 17.

Noticing cows on the remote pasture, the marketer decided to fly lower to capture closer footage, quickly being greeted with the elderly farmer appearing to try and lasso the camera before frightfully running away.

Initially sounding amused by the risible reaction, Serkan soon realised the farmer was frightened by the drone and immediately made his way to the farmhouse to reassure the him.
