Footage of the hot air balloon crash that killed 19 people outside Luxor, Egypt today has emerged on an Al Jazeera station.
Posted to YouTube, the chilling video begins with a view of the wreck, from another balloon. Then it shows the crash in its entirety, ending with the fiery balloon basket’s free fall to the ground, from several hundred feet in the air.
