Balloon in emergency
A HOT-AIR balloon was forced to land on a Gold Coast street yesterday, alarming residents and several Asian tourists who were on board.
The emergency landing took place in the car park of the community health building on Chisholm Rd, Carrara, about 7am.
“There were about 20 people in the basket, about six or eight of them were children,” said Klaas Meekel, 60, was being treated at the centre when he saw the balloon drop.
Balloon Aloft Gold Coast owner Bernhard Weibel said no one was injured.
