Strong winds and hot air balloons do not mix well.
Disaster struck during take-off at a recent gathering of hot air balloon enthusiasts, reported Mashable.
A sudden strong gust of wind carried one balloon into second, kicking off a scary chain of events that lead to a pilot dangling out of his balloon.
The pilot eventually was knocked onto the ground, leaving the balloon to fly up with his passengers stuck on-board.
Luckily, the balloon eventually returned to the ground and allowed the passengers to escape unharmed. The pilot was taken to the hospital, but he only suffered non-serious injuries.
