Terrifying Video of the Doomed Hot Air Balloon in Egypt as it Catches Fire and Plummets Towards Earth

The moment that we had imagined in our minds while reading about the deadly hot air balloon crash in Egypt could not compare to what we saw while watching the video below.  The doomed balloon was about to land when a hose that was attached to the gas tank was severed, leading to the gas tank exploding.  The explosion sent the balloon, and the 19 people tourists, back up in the air almost 1,000 feet where it ultimately caught fire and came crashing back to Earth.  If your volume is up on your computer, you can hear the people witnessing these events praying in Arabic for the safety of those on board.
