WATCH: Balloon knocks over handler at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


(WEHT) – A balloon at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade knocked one unlucky handler to the ground on Thursday.

In a particularly windy spot along the route, the balloon hit the handler.

The handler managed to get back up to continue marching.

The balloons have only been grounded once for weather-related reasons. That happened in 1971.
