There was a curious sight over Calgary Sunday evening.
Let's zoom in.
Yes, that is a man perched on a lawn chair attached to a plume of festively-hued helium balloons.
According to the Calgary Police Service (CPS), the flying contraption was spotted in the air around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, heading toward the downtown area:
"As he approached the downtown area, the man jumped from the chair and opened a parachute attached to his back. He landed in the green space located at Highfield Blvd. S.E. and Ogden Road S.E. Although officers are not able to confirm his exact destination, the man has indicated he was attempting to land in the Stampede grounds.
Police say he made it to the ground uninjured.
Calgary man Daniel Boria, 26, is now facing one count of mischief causing danger to life.
Boria, released from police custody on Monday, told the Calgary Sun that strong winds pushed him off course.
His aircraft was made of more than 100 balloons purchased online and a $20 lawn chair from Canadian Tire, he told the Sun. The goal was apparently to promote a cleaning business and while he expected some legal consequences, he didn't think they'd be "this severe."
"I'm glad he didn't die," a business associate told the Sun.
Lesson here: don't try this at home. Or anywhere.
The Calgary Police Service has clarified that Boria is facing one count of mischief, not two.
