It's not uncommon to see a random hot air balloon flying through the skies around Southeast Minnesota in the summer. Some afternoons I'll look outside my window and see a handful of them - thankfully from a safe distance.

But Stillwater resident Lindsey Roberts definitely couldn't say the same when she noticed a hot air balloon flying dangerously close to a neighborhood home. Apparently, the people aboard the balloon were trying to land in a nearby cul-de-sac with, shall we say, mixed results. Luckily for us, Lindsey was able to record the whole incident:

Talk about a close call! Thankfully, no people or homes were harmed during the course of this video. But how badly would you be freaking out if you looked outside the window and saw a hot air balloon flying directly towards your home?!
