Icarus - Son of Daedalus. He and his dad both were prisoned by King Minos, after they helped Theseus to survive the labyrinth they built.To escape from prisonhood, Daedalus built two pairs of wings made out of wax and feathers for himself and his son.
Icarus was warned by his dad not to fly too close to sun, yet he did and after wax melted the wings came off and so did he.

Moral of the story: This is one good reason why god clipped human race's wings. And clearly here Garuda took "take somebody under your wing" in complete wrong way.
