Madison Seigworth tweeted about the crash Thursday afternoon.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the pilot at this time".

"It started deflating, and then it started going down", Bryan Rosine told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Ruediger says she saw the blimp disappear behind the tree line, drove to another vantage point and saw black smoke along with three fireballs erupting after it hit the field.

TMZ Sports reported that the pilot made it out of the blimp but suffered suffered burns on his face and has pain in his neck and lower back.

Hartford is about 40 minutes northwest of Milwaukee.

A small blimp crashed near the U.S. Open on Thursday, seriously injuring the pilot and grabbing the attention of fans and golfers alike as they watched the fiery, smoking craft fall from the sky into an open field.

A blimp crashes during the first round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Thursday, June 15, 2017, near Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it would investigate the incident.

"A blimp unaffiliated with the #USOpen or @FOXSports has crashed near Erin Hills".

It was unknown what caused the blimp to crash.

The Open is one of golf's four majors. The blimp was operated by AirSign, an aerial advertising firm with operations across the country. Maynard could not confirm witness accounts that the pilot skydived from the blimp and said the aircraft's pilots do not regularly carry parachutes.
