Dramatic footage shows the moment a hot air balloon carrying 11 people crash lands into a lake near Amsterdam. The crash happened in a lake in the town of Almere, 21 miles from Amsterdam.

Amateur footage shows how the basket of the balloon hit the water and floated towards the shore. The balloon eventually lands on a road.

The Coast Guard sent two lifeboats to Almere, but did not have to assist, as people were able to make their own way out of the water.
