    LUTZ, Fla. — Two college students were found dead inside a large, deflated helium balloon after apparently pulling it down and crawling inside it, officials said.

    The deaths of Jason Ackerman and Sara Rydman, both 21, appear to be accidental, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Maj. Bob Schrader said.

    Their bodies were found Saturday partially inside a deflated helium balloon at the entrance of a condominium complex a few miles north of Tampa. The 8-foot-diameter balloon was used to advertise the complex.

    "It was more a fun thing they thought they were doing," said Linda Rydman, whose daughter was found dead. "You know how you blow up the balloon and suck the helium."

    I am sure they will. It seems that bring 21 years old, they would have had more sense.
