ERIN, Wis. (AP) – A blimp flying over the U.S. Open has gone down.

Justin Maynard is a sales manager for AirSign, the advertising company that operates the blimp.

Maynard says only the pilot was on board the craft. He says the company’s operations team on the ground confirmed citizen video on social media showing the blimp going down.

The pilot is okay but is being taken to a hospital.
