Default Hot Air Balloon crash caught on video...

This would be one of the worst ways to go IMO.

Just saw this on my AOL homepage.

Never knew those things could fit that many people.

Couldn't imagine what it would be like to see that from another balloon.

Those were my thoughts. That seems like a ton of people for an air balloon. I thought they held 5-8 max.

Considering they were tourists looking at the landscape, I would imagine high quality video...
