    First time I have ever heard of an accident like this happening. Can't imagine what was going through the minds of the people on their way down.

    Distressing, indeed. icon_sad.gif

    That's awful. 19 dead. And my heart goes out to the pilot, whose survival may be a fate worse than death, since he'll carry that on his conscience forever along with the burns...

    I used to live in Egypt, and many of their tourism attractions have no safety regulations.

    They said people jumped. I didn't see anybody.

    That cloud of smoke and incinerated bodies looks like a heart icon_eek.gif

    19 people? Wow. I never imagined a hot air balloon ever carrying more than like, 5 people.

    Yeah, it's just awful. This is why I would NEVER get in a hot air balloon or helicopter. They don't glide!

    Wild horses couldn't get me into one of those things -- no way! So sad for those people. What a horrifying way to die. After watching the video, I don't see how anyone managed to survive that fall but there were 3 survivors.
