A balloon was blown into a tree as well as also popped at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, although no one was injured.
An Associated Press reporter was on hand as a gust of wind carried a candy-cane balloon into a branch around 10:30 a.m. ET near the start of the parade route on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The candy cane was smaller than the parade’s signature giant balloons.
Police quickly cleared the deflated balloon out of the way, as well as also the parade continued.
In 2005, a giant balloon caught an unexpected gust of wind as well as also struck a lamppost in Times Square, injuring two people. Since then, the parade has been accident-free.
