PHOENIX — A hot air balloon crashed to the ground near Phoenix Tuesday morning, July 10th — and the whole incident was caught on camera.  

You can see the wind dragging the balloon to the ground. Witnesses say the balloon was then dragged through a field for several hundred feet before it finally came to a stop.  

Wind speeds were reportedly about 20 miles per hour in the Scottsdale area at the time.

At least five people emerged from the basket unharmed. They all reportedly declined medical treatment.
