Cardiff-by-the-Sea (October 5, 2014) – What started out as a romantic marriage proposal idea turned into a real life emergency for a hot air balloon pilot and an adventurous couple. Hundreds of beach-goers lined the shore of Cardiff-by-the-Sea to witness the romantic hot air ballon ride gone awry. The winds took the balloon directly out to sea where stand up paddlers quickly did what they could to aid the pilot and the couple.
Fortunately everyone made it safely to shore. Check out the video caught by one eyewitness:
