Hot Air Balloon Leads to Death


British Woman Killed in Hot Air Balloon as Husband and Sons Watch in Horror

While on vacation with her husband John, and their two sons, Will and Sam, they watched as their wife and mother, Susan Astle, 48, became involved in a deadly hot air balloon. The woman, from Warkwickshire, was taken to an area hospital, following the incident, but she died on Tuesday evening.


The balloon was carrying 15 people. Two others were hurt when it passed over a mountain. It was preparing to land in an area in North-west South Africa. The basket was caught by some very gusty winds. This caused the three people to fall out of the basket. Once the balloon was on the ground the gusty winds carried it across a field. It then hit some bushes and rocks which caused the basket to capsize and that’s when the injuries were sustained. Spectators reported that the five-knot winds suddenly increased to 30 knots causing the passengers, per participant Olivia Denny, to “cling on for dear life.” Denny, given the balloon ride as a 70th birthday gift from her son, said, “It was supposed to be one beautiful day out, but it turned into an absolute nightmare. When we were to land, the wind just swept us away.”

Mrs. Astle’s husband, a former airline pilot, returned home on today along with his sons.
