Man arrested for flying on a chair tied to 100 helium balloons

Man Arrested for Flying Helium-Balloon-Assisted Lawn Chair Over Canada

This man took a promotional stunt to the extreme.

In the attempt to generate some buzz around his cleaning company, Daniel Boria decided that billboards were too boring and bought 120 helium balloons for $10,000.

The man tied the balloons to a chair on which he sat and took off, with the plan to parachute down and land into a rodeo event.

Unfortunately the balloons took him too high and he was forced to land into a nearby field.

Mr Boria was arrested and charged with mischief causing danger to life.
