TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A hot air balloon made an unexpected landing Wednesday night with four passengers aboard.
The pilot, Chris Ritland who runs Quechee Balloon Rides, safely landed a hot air balloon in the median of a Vermont highway when the aircraft stalled mid-flight.
The balloon touched down on Interstate 91 around 8 p.m., according to local authorities.
The local fire department reportedly said Ritland had no other safe landing option.
Remarkably, no one was injured.
