Child Captures Hot Air Balloon Landing in Street

Video showing the landing was recorded by a 6-year-old in the back of mom's car

A hot air balloon making an unscheduled landing in the middle of the street Tuesday was caught on video by a giggling little boy in the back of his mom's car.

NBC 7 obtained the video shot by a 6-year-old Dylan, who repeatedly said "Oh my gosh" while recording the landing in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego.

Nine people were on board the balloon when it landed in front of cars at Bernardo Center Drive at West Bernardo Drive just after 7 p.m.

Firefighters helped to move the balloon off the road.

The pilot says they were blown off course.

No one was injured.

A photographer in the area also provided images of the unscheduled landing.

It was the second unscheduled landing in the North County in two weeks. On April 10, a hot air balloon landed near a firehouse in the Rancho Penasquitos area. No one was injured in that landing.
