Hot Air Balloon Makes Emergency Landing

Occurred on October 2, 2020 / Shelby Township, Michigan, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was sitting in my living room, playing guitar, enjoying my day, when I noticed a loud noise coming from outside. So, I got up to check it out and I was surprised to see it was the fire from a hot air balloon. It was descending fast right in my backyard. I couldn't believe what I was seeing, so my first thought was, 'I have to take my phone out and record this.' They kept descending fast, just floating over my pool. As they passed the pool, my next thought was, 'Oh no! Are they about to hit the side of my house?' I quickly opened the door and went outside to see if I could possibly help. Thankfully, they missed the house and barely dodged my car. I found out after the video ended that something went wrong with the balloon and they had to emergency land. Thankfully, everyone was okay and they packed up the balloon into the basket and placed it in the bed of a truck then drove off."
