An man flying a drone over a large body of water was already capturing some incredible footage, but ultimately ended up filming something even better when the unmanned aircraft crashed underwater.

"A sunny afternoon flying my electric powered plane ends in disaster when I become disorientated from the glare from the sun," the individual who published the footage to YouTube wrote.

However, after he recovered the drone, which was equipped with a GoPro camera, he realized the camera kept rolling after the crash and had actually captured some spectacular footage.
