Emergency landing : Hot air balloon lands in a garden in Sankt Augustin

A hot air balloon landed unscheduled in the middle of a garden in Sankt Augustin on Thursday. The owner said she had to perform an emergency landing.

According to the regional police in the Rhein-Sieg district, the 30-year-old owner of the balloon had to perform an emergency landing in a garden at the An den drei Eichen street.

Nobody was injured. The 30-year-old woman from Cologne had to begin an emergency landing due to insufficient lift and imminent darkness, when she picked the garden specifically as a landing place. She contacted the airport tower in advance of the landing. Original text: GA Bonn Translation: Mareike Graepel
