Hot Air Balloon Explodes As It Hits Power Lines
A hot air balloon has crashed into power lines in Massachusetts injuring five people on board.
Aviation investigators said the balloon had been attempting to land in a residential area in Clinton, around 50 miles west of Boston, when it struck the cables on Saturday.
Video footage captured the huge explosion when it hit, causing 600 households to lose power, although most were quickly restored.
Those aboard the balloon suffered burns.
One witness, Bob King, was surprised anyone had survived the crash and subsequent blast, saying he thought "they were gone".
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the cause of the crash.
