Everybody died in that accident.
|I hate hot air balloons,would not get in one. |
|your just full of hot air|
|Not interested in riding a hot air balloon anymore!|
|The last episode was not fatal, all they survived. I had seen it on TV.|
Dont know anything about first episode but guess they survived.
|Reminds me not to let imaginary blind anime guys like http://media.photobucket.com/image/blind%20guy/I_D ONT_KNOW_MY_USERNAME/Anime6.jpg?o=16 to steer my balloons.|
|First the flames fuck up,|
then the balloon goes and hits power lines causing the basket to fall off.
I'd say thats a pretty bad day.
|NO NO No ... you are wrong, even though you could not see it on this video there were two people - newly weds, who happened to be caught up in the line, as the basket flew over various locations police took potshots at it trying to bring the balloon down - on the tv news here in the northern provinces we could see and hear them screaming and pleading for help. Finaly a police helicopter got a little too close and the wash caused them to let go and they landed in a substation yard where they fused out the local neighbourhood, we were without power for two days while the linesmen fixed things. I would never go in one of those. The parents of the dead girl are suing the police for causing her death. It's all terribly sad. RIP.|
