A hot-air balloon pilot fell to the ground Monday morning after hitting the top of a corporate tent on the balloon fiesta park grounds in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The other passenger in the balloon was a female pilot.

After her co-pilot tumbled from the gondola, she pulled a cord to let some of the air out of the balloon, sending the basket immediately to the ground.

The man broke his hip, the woman was taken to the hospital but has been released.
