Man hanging from hot air balloon over Longmont causes 911 calls
LONGMONT, Colo. — High above Longmont, a man dangling from a hot air balloon caused quite a scare while performing a stunt for a new piece of gym equipment.
The stunt, which was meant to be taped for a private marketing video, has gone viral after several people called 911 to report their concerns about the man’s safety.

“If I can do a workout on a hot air balloon, that shouldn’t be that hard to go to the park and do the workout on your own,” said Dan Vinson, co-founder of The Wild Gym Company in Fort Collins.
The company is preparing to launch a product called Monkii bars that will allow users to workout almost anywhere. On Tuesday, Longmont police released four dispatch calls from residents about the incident.
No one was hurt and the company hopes to launch the product in early 2014.
