Runaway Blimp Crashes In Woman's Backyard
A 94-year-old Ohio woman didn't think much of the bang she heard during a weekend thunderstorm, until police started knocking on her door.
They were coming to retrieve a blimp that had crashed in her backyard. The blimp became untethered at a Columbus airport, which is 2 miles away. It was on a 20-city tour to advertise a brand of vodka.
After all the ruckus, Lillian Bernhagen joked she might actually need a drink.
