Golf’s second major tournament got started today out at Erin Hills Golf Club in Wisconsin. As the big names got their rounds started in the Thursday morning hours by stacking up the birdies, the public’s attention was instead focused on the skies as a blimp went down. According to people that took the video of the events, at least one person parachuted out of the blimp.
The blimp has been identified as an advertiser’s blimp according to CBS 58 in Milwaukee, not one affiliated with the FOX broadcast of the event.
CBS 58 reports that the blimp was one operated by the company AirSign and PenFed Credit Union was the company using the blimp to advertise. Paramedics have responded and are tending to the victim of the crash.
No word yet on what caused the blimp to crash to the ground. Play was unaffected by the blimp crash as the blimp was not over the course at the time that it went down.
