Blimp Ends Up in 94-Year-Old's Backyard

Lillian Bernhagen, a 94-year-old Ohio woman, was probably surprised when police knocked on her door on Sunday morning. But they weren't after her—just after the 128-foot-blimp in her backyard.

The blimp, advertising Hangar 1 vodka, had come unmoored in Columbus earlier in the day, and drifted about 10 miles to Bernhagen's backyard. Authorities apparently tried to track it via radar, while the blimp's owners tracked it from the ground; Bernhagen had no idea the blimp was in her backyard, though she'd heard a loud bang during the storm. She was forced to miss her church service, but God will probably forgive her.
