The unidentified man was on his way to deliver candy canes to the local community, when his hyperlight aircraft and sleigh became entangled in power wires 40 feet above the ground.

Around 200 homes in the Rio Linda area of Sacramento were left without power while the Municipal Fire Department used extendable ladders to disentangle the pilot who was uninjured.
