The occupants of two hot air balloons escaped serious injury this morning after separate crash landings in Melbourne.
One made an emergency landing in the backyard of a property on Terrara Road in Vermont South around 8am.
Speaking to 3AW, a Vermont South resident said she mistook the crash landing for an earthquake. The caller said the passengers all appeared to have escaped the crash unharmed.
Images posted on Twitter show the Nova 100-branded balloon losing altitude before its crash landing.
