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.

Whoa! Criss Angel is NOT messing around here!
The Luxor headlining illusionist was recorded having quite the verbal altercation with Joe Monti, one of his magic producers on Wednesday, during which Angel is heard threatening to knock him out - and now he's had a police report filed against him!
Give it a listen (above)!

Guess his weak ticket sales haven't taught him a thing!
Criss Angel made an even bigger ass of himself earlier this week after he threw a fit at his own party at the Luxor lounge in Las Vegas.
The douchiest magician of them all was so pissed when he saw fellow magicians Val Valentino and Ron Jones arrive at his Mindfreak premiere party, he instructed his bodyguards "in obscene language," to throw them out. A security guard approached the men and told them, "Mr. Angel is angry and does not want your presence in the hotel."
Valentino said, "He looked at me and yelled, 'Get that piece of (expletive) out of here.' It was bizarre, so unprofessional. I was so disappointed in him."
Jones said that Angel became upset when he saw that Valentino was getting more recognition from party goers and that's why he was kicked out. He added, "I think Angel was intimidated by Val's popularity when people started asking for his autograph. Val was not there to take away the limelight."
Ha! Sounds like bitter grapes to us! Get a clue, Angel! You're a tired has-been!
