VIDEO Man Faces Charges after Flying Lawn Chair with 100 balloons over Canada

A Canadian man is facing charges after attaching more than 100 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair and floating over Calgary, Canada.

Daniel Boria, 26, took flight on Sunday evening and was arrested after he “jumped from the chair and opened a parachute attached to his back,” according to a statement from the Calgary Police Service.

Boria was charged with one count of mischief causing danger to life.

The 26-year-old devised the stunt as a marketing ploy to gain attention to his all-natural cleaning solution company, the Toronto Star reported.

He told the newspaper that he spent $12,000 on helium and planned to skydive onto the Calgary Stampede grounds until bad weather foiled his plans.

“I rose to a certain altitude and the winds got pretty intense. I was somersaulting out the chair, and it felt like minus 30,” Boria told the Star. “I watched below as the Stampede and my dream drifted away.”

Boria injured his foot while landing. Police are still looking for the lawn chair, which they expect to fall after the balloons pop; Police Chief Kyle Grant told CTV.

“At this point we have no reports of anybody finding anything or anybody being injured,” Grant said, according to CTV.
