VIDEO: Hot air balloon makes emergency landing in residential neighborhood

A hot air balloon flew over a serene neighborhood in what seemed like a harmless glide over, until the basket began to lower closer to the homes.

Witness Jack Joswick captured the hot air balloon's emergency landing in a residential neighborhood.

The balloon's basket skimmed the trees and barely missed clipping a home as it landed in a Michigan neighborhood.

The seven passengers inside the basket did not fall out during the collision and no one was reported injured.

Thankfully the pilot of the balloon was from the area and familiar with the accessibility of large open land.

No one was injured in the landing.

According to the pilot, the landing was necessary because he ran out of gas to power the hot air balloon.
