Donte' Stallworth in stable condition
MIAMI -- NFL free agent Donte Stallworth was hospitalized Saturday with serious burns after the hot air balloon carrying him and two other people crashed into power lines, his agent said. The 10-year NFL veteran won't suffer any permanent damage from the accident in Homestead, said Drew Rosenhaus, Stallworth's agent.
"He's going to be OK. He has some burns, but he's going to be fine," Rosenhaus said. "He will be able to continue his NFL career. The injuries are not to the extent they will jeopardize his career."
The basket carrying three hot air balloon passengers crashed into the power lines while airborne, according to Miami-Dade Police spokesman Roy Rutland.
Two passengers were injured and transported to a trauma center, Rutland said. A third passenger in the basket was not injured. A source close to Stallworth told ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss that one of the passengers, Stallworth's girlfriend, is in stable condition.
