Hot Air Balloon Carrying A Wedding Party Crashes
San Diego, CA –Thirteen people were having a wedding ceremony in a hot air balloon when it crashed into a backyard in San Diego. The incident occurred in Rancho Penasquitos at around 4:45 p.m. The couple just got married when the balloon operator had trouble landing the balloon. He tried to bring down the balloon a couple of times, but he kept missing the landing sites. The balloon hit a fence and then hit the ground in a back yard. One person suffered a minor back injury in the accident and was taken to the hospital. The newly married couple, Kerin and Jonathan Narcisse, continued on to their reception. The company that owned the balloon is the Skysurfer Balloon Company. A spokesperson said that the crash occurred because of the wind. In the past the city of San Diego and the balloon companies have been at odds, and lawsuits have been filed. Balloon pilots have been cited if they land within the city limits.
