Women injured after hot air balloon tips over

TWO women have suffered minor injuries after the basket of the hot air balloon they were riding in tipped over upon landing on the Barellan Road at Colinroobie, just north of Narrandera yesterday.

A 60 year old woman and another aged 59 had taken a morning tour, and had landed on the ground when a gust of wind caught the partially deflated balloon, throwing them from the basket.

The 60 year old woman suffered a head laceration, while the 59 year old was experiencing neck pain, both were taken to Wagga Base Hospital for treatment.
