Nineteen tourists were killed Monday in a hot air balloon crash near Luxor, Egypt, making it the deadliest balloon crash worldwide in decades. Details of the episode are still emerging, but the Washington Post reported that a landing cable got caught around a helium tube, which caused a fire and subsequent gas explosion. The balloon and its 21 passengers plummeted to the ground from about 1,000 feet, scattering bodies and remnants of the balloon in a sugar cane field. Three people, including the balloon's pilot, survived the crash. One, a British tourist, later died in the hospital.
