If you were looking toward New Terrance State University today around noon you might have saw something bizarre. "Look in the sky, its a..." was the word around town this afternoon as Local College student, Dane Tombs, was seen soaring the sky in his lawn chair. Tombs along with a fellow classmate got the idea after watching the Disney Movie Up. After leaving Mr. Crockers Calculus class the 2 students gathered and calculated the exact number of balloons it would take to hold him and his lawn chair up. "It was awsome! I never thought in a million years I could ever do that. I mean; I've always thought about it when I was a kid but there thought I could do it" says Tombs. He was in the air a whole hour before the balloons popped and Tombs was forced to use his parachute. "His life was in danger, the wind could have blown which could have knocked the young man off his chair. This was very unsafe and we are disappointed in this act of childishness" were the words from JPD deputy John Marks. Lucky, Tombs did his homework and was able to stay afloat and come out with a very intriguing story.
