Police officials informed that residents of a town in Uttar Pradesh were shocked as a ballon figure of the fictional character Iron Man was let loose in the skies. This sparked fears of an alien invasion. The gas balloon resembled Iron Man and was spotted flying over the town of Dankaur in Greater Noida on Saturday morning.
Several people living in the town of Uttar Pradesh saw an “Iron Man Balloon” filled with gas flying in the sky. The residents thought that it was an alien. The ballon later landed in a canal near the Bhatta Parsaul Village. Officials confirmed that the village crowd gathered together to spot the scene that looked like an “alien invasion.”
Dankaur Police Official said, “It was a balloon filled with air that had gone up in the sky and later came down and got stuck in the bushes along the canal. A part of the balloon was touching the flowing water in the canal which had led the balloon to shake a little. Unbeknown to the spectators, this made for an anxious watch.”
Police Official Anil Kumar Pandey told PTI that the locals of the village got anxious and surprised after seeing the shape of the balloon. “It was shaped like the Iron Man given its color and design. This was an unusual sight so some people even though it was an alien, or something like that, and were apprehensive.”
The officials furthermore affirmed that the balloon must have run out of gas and that “there was nothing harmful inside it”, but it is yet to be found out who let it loose in the air.
