Why you should NEVER let balloons float off – they can cause serious damage

Hold you balloons tight before they could cause any explosion.

The explosion was filmed by electrical workers.

“Mylar balloons flew and stuck onto the line as my crew was working on power lines. I instructed the two crew members to climb down the pole to be safe in case they caused an explosion from contact. I called to have the line de-energized. Before the line could be de-energized they made a line to ground contact causing an explosion and burning down 2 of the 3 lines.”
