Man tried to jump from hot air balloon

Passengers pull him back on board

One of the occupants on a hot air balloon ride over Sun Prairie on Thursday tried to jump from the basket when it was 1,500 feet in the air, according to police.

The pilot told WISC-TV he was able to grab the man’s leg and the rest of the passengers helped pull the man back in.

Wind prevented the pilot from landing the balloon for another 45 minutes.

The man was taken into custody when the balloon landed and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

His name is not being released.
