Crazy Video 'They Were in God's Hands': Hot Air Balloon Crashes Into Power Lines, Injuring 5
Video above captures the moment a hot air balloon crashed into power lines in Clinton, Massachusetts on Saturday evening.
Five of the six people on board were hospitalized with burns.
The balloon landed on the yard of a home at the intersection of Brook and Greeley streets. It could be seen sitting upright Saturday night in the yard.
Power outages were reported in the area surrounding the crash after the incident. National Grid reported that roughly 600 customers lost power in the area, though all had their power restored by Sunday morning.
The Federal Aviation Administration released a statement about the incident Saturday night.
"A Colt Balloon was attempting to land in a residential area near Clinton, MA when it struck a power line and caught on fire," the statement read.
The FAA is investigating the crash.
Ron Raymond, the man who shot the video, spoke to Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom to give a firsthand account of what happened.
The hot air balloon actually landed on Raymond's car and destroyed it. Prior to landing, he said the people on the board didn’t realize they were in danger.
“They were just above the power lines,” he said. “They weren’t concerned. They were in God’s hands. […] The pilot had to make a decision, I believe. He either had to land in that field or give it a little more gas and raise up and land on the rooftop right beyond it. So he made the wrong decision.”
