A fatal hot air balloon collision occurs in Turkey.

Cappadocia in Turkey is said to be one of the world's most beautiful locations for hot air balloon rides.

However, in a recent tragedy, two hot-air balloons collided in that part of the world.

Roughly two dozen people were injured while three passengers tragically passed away. Both of the balloons were carrying tourists as part of a trip where travelers get to view volcanic rock formations.

One of the balloons rose higher than intended and struck the other balloon's wicker basket, which caused it to rapidly descend towards the ground. Besides one passenger who was killed, many others suffered from broken bones.

Cappadocia is located in the center of Turkey. It’s about a five hour drive from the capital city of Ankara.

The gorgeous landscape in Cappadocia makes hot air ballooning an extremely popular activity. Early in the morning, dozens of balloons take off so passengers can experience the sunrise along with the panoramic views of the landscape.
