Four people, including the pilot, were killed in a hot air balloon crash in Arizona, USA. The accident happened last Sunday in the desert of Iloy city of the state.

However, eight other skydivers jumped out before the balloon crashed.

The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said in a statement on Monday that the balloon named ‘Kubisec BB85Z’ crashed.

The NTSB said a preliminary inspection of the scene found no mechanical faults. The balloon and its basket were largely intact. Electronic devices containing flight data and a video camera were sent to NTSB headquarters in Washington to investigate.

The Eloy Police Department said in a statement that the skydivers successfully completed their skydiving before the crash.
