    My grandparents were in a hot air balloon crash. There were only minor injuries, but one person crushed a metal water bottle with their hip. Hot air ballooning seems like it could be more dangerous than it looks.

      Doesn't look very remote. The balloon literally dragged across a major, well used automobile trail.

                      Just the other night I had a nightmare about being in a hot air balloon accident. So frightening, hopefully the people injured have a quick recovery.

                        They should have waited and flown in the albuequerque box, much safer of a flight, at least thats what i here, the vegas area and northwestern arizona area is bad area for ballon flights, the wind is predictable just not the wind gusts, you have more chance of low level wind shear in a hot hot desert area like the mohave dessert, the sonorian desert isnt as hot so it is good flying weather, new mexico i think is about the best, for safe balloon rides,

                          Kyle Hutchinson I do remember that incident, but with the amount of balloons that fly, the rate per accidents is real small, I am in Phoenix, balloons fly during the winter daily, we have had a few mishaps too, mostly human error, the point I was trying to illustrate was, Vegas is a bad area for ballooning where Albuquerque and even phoenix is 1000 times better than Vegas, Vegas ballooning only exists because of the tourist money out weighs safety in big business eyes, and people should be diligent and check before they fly, or at a minimum do some research into the industry before they place their lives in a strangers hand, and the views in New Mexico is much better than Nevada any day, and the “Box” trip would be a memorable rare ride.

                          There's been many balloon crashes in Albuequerque. That was where the Smokey Bear balloon hit that radio tower with 2 kids on board.

                                    Don't let this accident scare you from going on a balloon ride. I've been up many times and the pilots I've flown with never had any accidents. Accidents happen, so, don't ever be scared. The pilot and crew do whatever they can to make sure that you have a safe ride. The pilot even goes over safety rules before leaving the ground. Like if the pilot tells you to flex your legs and hang on during landing, you do so, or if they tell you to duck down in the basket, you do so.

                                  Ah! The balloon must of snagged itself on that "Invisible wall" Trump built! Maybe next time, someone should "use a Sharpie" and make it more visible! 😉

                                    It ran into the sharpie on top of the wall that is on the usa and greenland border. You know alabama where the orange lights glow,

                                    I just did a hot air balloon ride outside of Vegas on Mon . Luckily . It was like floating on a cloud and I didn’t even realize that we had landed. , It was so smooth, I thought I was still hovering a little. However, the pilot informed all of us that landings are tricky. The worst type is if a sudden gust of wind unexpectedly appears which could turn the entire balloon & basket on its side. Wishing a complete and speedy recovery to all of the victims who experienced this nightmare🙏

                                                  @Just Peachy I'm afraid of heights too, but that didn't stop me. I actually know a local balloon pilot who's also afraid of heights.

                                                  @Kyle Hutchinson , I'm deathly afraid of heights. It's hard enough for me to get on a airplane so I definitely wouldn't be able to get in a basket and float around. Makes my stomach hurt and anxiety rise just thinking about it.

                                                  I've been up many times in a hot air balloon. All the rides I've been on have been accident free. I also help crew hot air balloons. Accidents are actually pretty rare, but in most states, the winds could be unpredictable and that's mostly why accidents happen with hot air balloons.

                                                    oh yes, every time a hot air balloon goes up, 2 come down in a crash. hot air balloon crashes are very rare, that's why it makes such sensational stories for the media. !! America has More Mass Shootings than Balloon Crashes. You're safer in a balloon than you are at your local retail outlet, church or school.

                                                        It's not a death trap. I've been up many times. It's just not easy to figure out what the wind does. Accidents happen, and it wasn't even the pilot's fault.

I've been up in a hot air balloon many times. And all the ones I've been on have been accident free. It was a gust of wind that caused the accident that happened in this video. Even my mom went on a balloon ride and she loved it. And the balloon she rode in was actually the same size as the one in this video.
