The pilot desperately tries to steer it toward the water but it goes down on a house in neighborhood with families and small children all around. A hot air balloon that looks like Smokey Bear hits a radio tower with 50 thousand volts of electricity running through it. The nylon balloon is snagged 650 feet in the air and ripping. To make matters worse there are two young boys in the basket with no way for anyone to reach them. A motorcycle daredevil is trying to set a record jumping more than two hundred feet in the air, then landing on the back of two flatbed trucks stacked on top of each other. He falls short, and comes just inches from being cut in half.
