One brave and daring man has just made headlines around the world. What seemed almost like a joke has stunned people everywhere and has gone viral online!
Tom Morgan is originally from Britain. He is labeled as an “adventurer” and his latest stunt proves exactly why people would call him that.
Morgan decided to try something that resembled the balloon scene from the movie, “Up.” He tied 100 gallons to a camping chair and floated up and away in South Africa.
Morgan traveled nearly 16 miles across the countryside Monday at a height of 8,000 feet after spending two days filling the balloons with helium, according to Fox News.
He had tried several times to fly with balloons before today’s successful mission. He described it as “unbelievably cool” and admitted he was "somewhere between terrified and elated.”
"The problem was finding a good weather window and it was difficult to protect the balloons as they kept bursting,” Morgan said. He popped the balloons and safely returned to the ground as strong winds began to be reported in the area.
