Watch: Giant moon balloon 'attacks Chinese city'

It's like something out of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Bystanders scramble to get out of the way as a giant Moon rolls through the city,  enveloping everything in its path. 

A massive model of the Moon was severed from its base and rolled onto the streets of Fuzhou after Typhoon Meranti hit the industrial hub.

Chinese officials had set up mini-moons models and giant lanterns across the country in the run-up to this year’s mid-autumn festival, also called the Moon festival.

One of the balls got free and caused chaos in the city before authorities managed to disable it.
