Wedding party balloon ride crashes
A sunset wedding ceremony aboard a hot air balloon got off to a bumpy start when a gust of wind forced the pilot to make a crash landing in the yard of a San Diego home.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Maurice Luque says one of the 14 people onboard suffered a minor back injury Monday.
The marrying couple told KGTV the gust caught the balloon just after they exchanged their vows, causing it to sway over the Rancho Penasquitos neighbourhood.
The landing on a hillside fence behind the house was filmed by a member of the wedding party.
Video showed the blue-and-yellow balloon draped over trees near the house afterward.
The couple continued to their reception.
