Bal­loon es­cape

First News - - WORLD NEWS -

Six peo­ple es­caped un­harmed af­ter their hot-air bal­loon col­lided with power lines 70m (230ft) above the ground. Quickly de­flat­ing, the bal­loon be­came tan­gled with the power lines, leav­ing the six pas­sen­gers stranded in mid-air. Mirac­u­lously, none of them was hurt in the crash, and all man­aged to avoid col­lid­ing with the 380,000-volt elec­tric­ity ca­bles dan­gling nearby.
