San Diegan goes viral for emotional drone demolition video of SDCCU stadium

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Ernesto is a native to San Diego who grew up watching games, and even played in some of his own at what was once known as Qualcomm Stadium.

A couple recently made a tribute mural to Tony Gwynn, inspiring him to do a project to help say goodbye to a stadium that was home to Tony Gwynn, Junior Seau, and so many other legends in sports.

He decided to buy a drone and get to work, racking up hundreds of thousands of views along the way.

KUSI’s Allison Edmonds spoke with Ernesto to share the story of how it all came to be, in an attempt to say goodbye to the cement cathedral we have all grown to love.
