A blimp caught fire and crashed to the ground near the U.S. Open golf tournament, injuring the pilot and causing an explosion on the ground. Patrick Walsh, the company's CEO, tells CBS News the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Walsh says the pilot was the only person on board the blimp. He suffered burns in the crash but was OK, Walsh said.
“It started deflating, and then it started going down,” onlooker Bryan Rosine told the newspaper. “They were trying to give it some throttle and it didn’t go up. Then there was a bunch of kabooms and smoke clouds.”
How does an event with that many people, cameras, and news cameras... not have a single recording in focus, of the blimp from a better camera?
