Tearaway blimp discovered in Ohio house garden

The 39-metre-long blimp broke loose from its moorings at the Ohio State University airport.

COLUMBUS, OHIO // Officials say a 39-metre-long blimp that broke loose from its moorings at the Ohio State University airport in high winds has been found about three kilometres away in a garden.

An Ohio State police spokesman said the blimp was found by a home owner yesterday, more than seven hours after strong winds lifted it out the airfield in Columbus.
