A former Des Moines school board member who ran for governor was involved in the crash-landing of a balloon in California that’s drawn national attention.
Jonathan Narcisse got married on Monday in a balloon with about a dozen family members aboard. The balloon was floating over the ocean for the nuptials, but landing in the San Diego area proved difficult.
“Next thing you know, we’re crashing into a fence and killing a tree,” Narcisse told a California television station.
One person was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A video of the crash taken by a member of the wedding party was played on several TV networks this morning. A reporter on ABC’s “Good Morning America” noted the bride and groom went to their reception after the crash landing.
