Fairfield–A person at the Fairfield Beach Club on Fairfield Beach Road reported to police around 8:15pm Saturday evening that a balloon she believes was caring people landed in the water on Jennings Beach, possibly closer to St. Mary’s by the Sea in Bridgeport. Police were quick to be on the scene and only located a yellow kayak but no balloon. They spoke to several people at the club who say it may have been a Chinese Lantern. While police were interviewing witnesses at the club I talked to a number of people enjoying the weather at St. Mary’s and all said they had been there for quite a while and saw nothing in the sky. They said the were looking towards Jennings beach area. Fairfield Police continued investigating and determined it must have been the lantern.
