A Sad Day for Albuquerque
I'm sad to report that the Balloon Fiesta has had a fatality today. A lady from California, who was a passenger in one of the balloons that went up this morning, fell to her death after the balloon got tangled in some power lines, and the basket tipped suddenly. There were four other people in the basket - the pilot and three other passengers. They ended up coming free of the power lines, crossing the nearby freeway, and crash landing. I haven't heard anything about the condition of those four people.
