Media men in hot air balloon drama

NIBONG TEBAL, Local reporters were caught in a suspenseful moment when the hot air balloon they were in blew off-course, landing in the middle of a road here today.

Relieved, the seven media men, including two Bernama representatives can chalk down the incidence as part of their experience during the prelude to the Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta to be held from Feb 9 and 10.

Chairman of the state Tourism, Heritage, Culture and Arts Committee Yeoh Soon Hin was together with the media personnel on their hot air balloon ride which was handled by Dutch national Jonas Van Doorsselaere, 32.
