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.

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:
