        It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a man in a lawn chair flying over Canada .

        A Canadian man attached giant helium-filled balloons to a makeshift cockpit -– a lawn chair -– and soared for miles over Calgary in an attempt at a promotional stunt, according to police and one of his business partners.

        But Daniel Boria, 26, lost control of the rig and had to abandon ship at some point.

        “He had no control device on the balloons and really was just traveling by the grace of the wind,” Derek Mohajer told ABC News today.

        Boria, who works in marketing, took to the skies Sunday afternoon with 150 balloons in an attempt to promote a cleaning company.

        “It was a little too windy and he went a little too high and the stunt wasn’t responsible,” Mohajer said.

        According to police, he was first spotted above Harlow Avenue, in the Northwest part of the city. Then witnesses spotted him trying to maneuver the chair towards the downtown area.

        When he neared downtown, “the man jumped from the chair and opened a parachute attached to his back,” police said in a release.

        He landed at Highfield Boulevard and Ogden Road, in the southeast part of the city, about 9 miles away.

        Boria missed his landing zone — which police believe to be the Stampede Grounds — and had minor ankle injuries, according to Mohajer.

        Police arrested Boria and charged him with mischief causing danger to life, according to the Calgary Police Service. He has since been released.

        As for the balloons, Mohajer said he has no clue where they ended up.

        Man uses helium balloons to fly in lawn chair

        Attached to nearly 100 helium-filled balloons, Tom Morgan, of Bristol, England, lifted off in a lawn chair into the skies above South Africa last week, soaring to nearly an altitude of 8,000 feet. 

        Morgan, a part of a group known as the Adventurists, was able to take off after weather and other failures kept him and his lawn chair on the ground.  

        Morgan and his crew documented the entire journey on YouTube . 

        Morgan told the BBC that once he reached 8,000 feet, the apparatus started accelerating into the sky. As not to go into air too thin, and to interfere with commercial flight patterns, Morgan decided to cut loose some of his balloons. 

        "I had to keep my cool and start gradually cutting the balloons," he said. 

        Morgan, along with his chair and balloons, drifted 15 miles before landing. 

        Morgan’s adventures were a bit more controlled than previous attempts to fly using a lawn chair. In 1982, California man Larry Walters attached 45 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair. 

        Walters reached an altitude of 16,000 feet, causing planes approaching Long Beach Airport to divert. When Walters landed, his balloons snagged on power lines, causing a blackout in some Long Beach neighborhoods.
