Anxiety gripped locals in Uttar Pradesh, India, as they spotted a floating IronMan shaped balloon in the sky.

A group of residents in Dankaur, a town in Uttar Pradesh, spotted the balloon filled with gas over the town but thought it was an alien. The balloon later landed in a canal near the Bhatta Parsaul village.

“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,”

Said Dankaur police offical

The major reason behind the anxiety among residents was the unusual shape of the balloon, that was shaped like the Iron Man given its colour and design.
