Perseus was not sent away by his father, but by his grandfather Acrisius. Acrisius had a daughter named Danaë, and when he heard a prophecy that he would die by the hand of Danaë's son, he desperately tried to avoid his fate. Acrisius locked Danaë up in a room that was completely sealed, apart from a hole in the roof through which she could breath and be fed. He thought he was safe, but the god Zeus spotted the lonesome Danaë and payed her a visit, and then fathered her child, Perseus. When Acrisius heard of Perseus, he intended to kill the child, but when he learned that his grandson was a demigod son of Zeus, he dared not do so. Instead he sent Danaë and Perseus away to sea in a chest, saying that their drowning would be the fault of Poseidon.
