2012-10-22 17:30

Davie - High winds forced a blimp-like aircraft carrying an advertisement for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to make an emergency landing in Florida.

Police say the two people aboard got out safely when the aircraft landed in a Davie neighbourhood on Sunday evening.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports the blimp was flying from Boca Raton, where Monday night's final presidential debate between Romney and President Barack Obama will be held.

Police Capt. Dale Engle says the deflated aircraft carried an advertisement that read, "America needs Romney".
No one on the ground was injured.
