Heart-stopping moment man dangles from rope after falling out of hot air balloon

This is the nail-biting moment a man was left dangling from a rope hundreds of meters in the air after tumbling out of a hot air balloon.

The terrifying footage was captured in the city of Teotihuacan in central Mexico last week.

It shows a hot air balloon rising into the sky with one man desperately holding onto the side of the platform.

Onlookers can be heard screaming in terror as those on the ground pull on the ropes to bring down the ballon and rescue the man.

But as it is lowered down, the man loses his grip and plummets towards the ground.

Incredibly, he manages to grab hold of the dangling rope before he crashes to the floor.

The hot air balloon slowly goes back to the ground where a group of people hold out a sheet to serve as a cushion.

There have been no reports on the circumstances leading up to the scary moment and there were no reported injuries.

The authorities have reportedly started investigating the hot air balloon company behind the excursion as well as similar businesses in the area to ensure they have the necessary permits and security measures.
