A hot-air balloon fire in Mexico results in two fatalities.

The government said on Saturday that two individuals had perished after a hot air balloon traveling close to Mexico’s renowned Teotihuacan archaeological monument caught fire. In a statement, the state of Mexico’s administration stated that the passengers “jumped from the balloon,” adding that a youngster had burns.

Without mentioning their identities, it stated that the victims were a 50-year-old male and a 39-year-old woman. The right femur of the child was fractured, along with second-degree burns to his face, according to the report.

There was no mention of more people on the balloon.

Social media users shared a video of the balloon’s gondola on fire in a clear sky.

For about $150, a number of tour companies offer hot air balloon rides over Teotihuacan, which is located about 45 miles (70 kilometers) northeast of Mexico City.

Teotihuacan, a pre-Columbian ruin that still stands with its Boulevard of the Dead and Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, is a well-liked tourist destination.
