Three hot-air balloons crash in Turkey


Around 50 injured where Danish tourist recently died
Just a few weeks after a Danish tourist was killed in a hard landing during a hot-air balloon trip in Turkey’s Cappadocia region, the same area has seen another serious accident.
At least 49 people, mostly foreign tourists, were injured when three hot-air balloons made hard landings in strong winds in Cappadocia.
The tourists were mostly European and Chinese, enjoying rides over the famous landscape of volcanic rock formations and churches and buildings carved into mountainsides, when the winds suddenly picked up. The balloons then had to make emergency landings.
Nine of the 49 people hurt are being treated for fractured bones. The others had relatively minor injuries and were released from hospital.
