So sad! And scary!
19 tourists are dead after a horrific hot air balloon crash in Luxor, Egypt.
Hot air balloons may seem safe and slow, but just like any other aircraft, all it takes is one little thing going wrong to cause a disaster.
According to reports, either a loose cable or a minor collision caused a gas explosion that sent the balloon rocketing 300 meters into the sky.
Citizens from the UK, China, Japan, France, Hungary, and Egypt were aboard. Somehow there were two survivors- the pilot and a single tourist who leapt from over 30 feet to the ground below.
