A balloon pilot suffered a broken leg Monday evening after the aircraft made a hard landing in north Phoenix.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said the hot air balloon made a hard landing five miles north of Deer Valley Airport at 6 p.m. Monday.

The pilot was partly ejected from the balloon and suffered a broken leg.

The balloon was carrying two adults and three children.

One child suffered a minor injury.

Gregor said the FAA will investigate.
