    According to local media, a flying object reminiscent of the Marvel character Iron man was observed in the sky, prompting some residents of India's Uttar Pradesh state to call police.

    The Saturday morning turned dramatic for many people in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh’s Dankaur district, near the city of Noida: they were shocked to notice a weird robot-like figure flying high in the sky.

    But all burst into laughter after learning that it was just a balloon shaped like the comic character Iron Man floating in the air. 

    “It was a balloon filled with helium gas that had gone up in the sky and later came down and got stuck in the bushes along the canal near Bhatta Parsaul village,” Dankaur District Police Officer Anil Kumar Pandey told Indian news agency PTI on Sunday.  

    “A part of the balloon was touching the flowing water in the canal which had led the balloon to shake a little ... unknown to the spectators; they became anxious after seeing this,” he added.
