SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — A hot air balloon with at least five people on board crashed to the ground near Phoenix Tuesday, and it was all caught on camera.

The basket hit the ground and then the wind dragged the balloon and the basket with all the passengers inside.

Witnesses say the balloon was dragged through a field for several hundred feet before it finally came to a stop.

Wind speeds were reportedly about 20 miles per hour in the Scottsdale area at the time.

Once the basket stopped after the rough landing, everyone emerged from the basket unharmed.

They all reportedly declined medical treatment. They definitely have an interesting story to tell.
