NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. —

There were no injuries reported when a hot air balloon pilot was forced to make an emergency landing Thursday night in North Versailles.

According to authorities, the pilot began experiencing difficulties and brought the balloon down safely just before 8 p.m. Three people were in the basket at the time.

Neighbor Coco Kane shot video of the incident  

 

"I thought it was going to land on Greensburg Pike down there but it didn't.   It ended up coming back up my street, and I thought it was going to land on someone's house, but next thing you know, it's in the grass field back here, and I'm like, ‘Wow,’” said Kane.

 

The balloon was packed into a spotter vehicle a short time later and driven away, officials said.
