Hot air balloon crash

Just come across this via twitter. I’d never heard of any accidents involving hot air balloons before. I’m sure there’s always going to be a risk involved: standing in a basket, hundreds of meters in the air with a blazing gas canister certainly doesn’t sound particularly safe, and no doubt the owners or company bosses will make me sign all kinds of liability waivers before I ever get so much as a toe in that basket. But even so, I haven’t any qualms about going up in one and everyone I know who has been in a hot air balloon has loved the experience.


So although this hasn’t put me off, it has given me a few concerns. Maybe I should wear a fire-proof suit with matching parachute when I eventually do this task?
