DeLand artist's "wings" take flight on social media

- Erica Group never set out to become a social media sensation. But when she created a set of angel's wings, in chalk, on a Deland wall the world quickly took notice.

2 years later, hundreds of people have come to the alley where they are to take pictures of themselves in front of what are now known as the "Deland Wings." 

FOX 35's Tom Johnson shows you the story behind the sensation.
