The pilot of a nearby balloon - Mohamed Youssef - describes watching the Luxor balloon crash. He saw smoke coming from the balloon before it collapses and plunges to the ground. The accident left 19 people, including two Britons, dead.

Mohamed Youssef, said "The balloon was 2-3 metres from the ground. Then the fire started and after that the pilot jumped because the fire was on his body. Another customer near the edge of the balloon jumped. After the two jumped the balloon rose as a result of the two people jumping and [as a result] of the heat [rising into the balloon]. At 10-15 metres another customer jumped. Then it reached 300 feet. Four people jumped. Then the basket separated from the envelope because of the heat. Then it falls to earth."
