Montecasino Balloon Lands in Fourways

The massive Hyundai branded helium balloon at Montecasino has blown away after it was seen to "blow up" earlier this afternoon leaving one person reportedly injured.

The balloon, a popular aerial observation deck for tourists, is reported to be the largest balloon on the continent - reportedly licenced to carry up to 30 passengers. It was tethered to a based station - raised and lowered on a cable.

The balloon and suspended observation deck - pictured before today's incident.

While the exact cause of this incident remains unclear, we've sourced photos of the flying balloon posted from surprised motorists and residents of nearby Fourways:

EWN's Seabelo Modise shared this video of the #HyundaiBalloon flying out into the sky:

The balloon finally landed on a house on Cranberry Avenue in Fourways a few minutes ago :
