Hot Air Balloon Crashes into Power Lines

Occurred on June 24, 2018 / Howell, Michigan, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was walking my dog Sunday morning at Thompson lake, I begin to notice hot air balloons in the distance and realize that they were coming my way, they were participating in the Michigan challenge balloonfest where they drop bean bag markers on white X's placed in various spots around Howell. One balloon went by and dropped a marker and this was the second balloon I was filming, he flew by and drop the marker after that he yelled down to his team who was waiting below 'I'm going to bring it down here on the beach' it was right at this point I could tell something was wrong and his demeanor changed and he started to look frantic I attempted to zoom in to see what was going on this is when I zoom back out and he started to lose altitude quickly and hit the power lines blowing a Transformer and crippling the balloon some how spinning off of them and astonishingly not getting caught in the lines, he was able to regain composure and land the balloon safely in the lake and two fishermen came and helped him to shore."
