CALGARY, ALBERTA (WTXF/STORYFUL) -- A Canadian man was charged by police over the weekend after he launched himself into the sky with helium balloons and a lawn chair. He allegedly performed the stunt to promote his company, a cleaning business.

According to CBCNews, Daniel Boria of Calgary, Alberta in Canada allegedly tied about 110 helium-filled balloons to a plastic lawn chair he reportedly bought at a Walmart.
