Woman Hurt in Hot-Air Balloon Accident

BETHLEHEM TOWNSHIP, N.J.

A woman helping her husband launch his hot-air balloon was critically injured when her leg got caught in a rope and she was pulled up into the air and fell through the roof of a barn.
Kathleen J. Long, 53, of Phillipsburg, was in critical condition Monday morning at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, Pa. The accident happened Sunday in Bethlehem Township, N.J.
It was not clear how Long's leg got caught in the rope. Witnesses say she dangled from it for a short time and passed through several tree tops before she was knocked off. She then fell about 50 feet and crashed through the barn roof, officials said.

---OOPS!
