Four hurt in hot air balloon accident
Johannesburg - Four people were injured when their hot air balloon hit power cables on Nooitgedacht wine estate outside Stellenbosch on Saturday, paramedics said.
The balloon left Joostenbergvlakte and, while over the nearby wine estate, was pushed into the overhead cables by a strong wind, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.
The basket fell to the ground, injuring four of the six occupants.
A critically injured woman was airlifted to a private hospital in Stellenbosch. The other injured were taken to various hospitals in the area.
