People ran screaming as a hot air balloon crashed through chairs, tables and attendees of a Hannibal, Mo. festival Saturday.
One man said his mother was knocked down by the balloon basket and suffered a cut to her hand but is otherwise OK.
A firetruck and ambulance were witnessed on scene, but Marion County Dispatch says the all-clear was given early on and police didn’t need to respond because it was considered a minor incident.
“Thankfully, there were no serious injuries, and the event continued,” the committee said in a statement.
