chaos at hot air balloon festival caused by crashing planes and high winds


Twelve people were hurt when hot air balloon baskets collided with them due to strong winds, sending 60,000 terrified people into a stampede.

On November 19, as the crowd waited for DJs Martin Garrix and Tiesto to take the stage at the International Hot Air Balloon Festival in Leon, Guanajuato State, Mexico, the incident occurred.

After the baskets hit people, they were battered and bruised, and some festival-goers reportedly had nervous breakdowns as well.

Six of the hurt were taken to the exclusive La Luz Hospital for examinations to rule out any serious wounds.

Due to bad traffic, the other six patients arrived at the hospital later.

All have since been discharged.

Due to unfavorable weather, some of the hot air balloons did not launch as scheduled the following day.
