Strong Winds Knock Pilot Out Of Hot Air Balloon [VIDEO]

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.
