Hot air balloon crashes into crowd in Missouri


An out-of-control hot air balloon knocked people to the ground at a festival in Missouri.

It happened Saturday at the bicentennial celebration in Hannibal when the balloon tried to land in windy conditions. Several people were knocked to the ground by the basket.

A little girl suffered minor injuries and one woman cut her hand, but, fortunately, officials say no one was seriously hurt.
