Reporters covering the crash landing of a hot air balloon in Victoria's Yarra Valley today were left a little damp after the pesky driver of a truck purposely sprayed them with water.
The ambulance service in the southeastern state of Victoria said it treated the tourists for back and neck injuries at the scene, before sending seven, aged between 20 and 70, to hospital.
The balloon took off from the Glenburn area at approximately 7am carrying 16 passengers before landing "heavily" on a private property at Dixons Creek, about 46km north-east of Melbourne.
The balloon landed in a paddock and aerial footage showed the basket on its side in the grass.
"The incident obviously had a potential to be much worse", paramedic manager Ben Allan said.
Six of the seven patients suffered back injuries and are aged over 50.
At the most severe, one woman aged in her 60s was taken to Box Hill Hospital with suspected ankle fractures.
"The exact cause of the crash is yet to be determined and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau will be investigating".
A witness named Mark saw the balloon come down in a field and said the basket and balloon ended up lying on its side, he told.
Coldstream-based company Go Wild Ballooning is the operator of the flight.
"I was driving past that way heading to Wodonga".
'Because it was about 500 metres from me, I couldn't really see, but I could see something wasn't right'.
