Man Fires Shotgun at the 90 Weather Balloons Holding Him Aloft

Man Fires Shotgun at the 90 Weather Balloons Holding Him Aloft

It’s as if Evel Knievel made his own version of the Disney film ‘Up’. Erik Roner, a GoPro athlete, created a makeshift vehicle out of a lawn chair and 90 weather balloons, which sent him 8,000 feet skyward. But to make things interesting, he brought along the least safe fail-safe on the face of the earth to get himself down: a shotgun.

Watch the brilliant results below. (Or if you want to just skip ahead to the midair carnival act, click here.)
