Gallery: Cape Town balloon flight a success
Western Cape - A Cape Town man has become the 13th person in the world to fly using helium balloons.
Matt Silver-Vallance has described the experience as scarier than he had anticipated. After almost an hour in the air, he landed safely, saying he was just glad to be alive.
Silver-Vallance’s stunt was an attempt to raise R10 million for the building of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital. R70, 000 had been raised by the end of his flight.
