WATCH: Blimp crashes and explodes at U.S. Open, pilot seriously burned
It appears that the blimp hovering over the course at Erin Hills has gone down
ERIN, Wis. -- Golfers decimated the course at Erin Hills in Round 1 of the U.S. Open on Thursday, but the real action took place in the skies. A went down at Erin Hills early on Thursday, and according to folks at the scene, the pilot just barely escaped before the crashed blimp exploded. The blimp was not affiliated with the U.S Open or the TV broadcast team for Fox.
I was on the course when this happened, and at one point, I noticed the blimp was flying incredibly low and looked to be taking on a weird shape (it seemed to have been deflating).
USGA reported that the pilot was hurt and first responders are on the scene. He suffered serious burns but was alert and conscious when taken away.
