A hot air balloon fell in Acatlán, Hidalgo, near the town of Tulancingo, leaving at least two people dead.

The report says that the crew, totaling 4, are in critical condition as authorities search for six other survivors.

Images posted on Twitter show the hot air balloon bursting into flames mid-flight, as well as the burnt remains of the vessel on the ground.

This past weekend, many tourists flocked to Teotihuacán to celebrate the spring equinox by climbing the Pyramid of the Sun. Hot air balloon tours are a regular service at the UNESCO world heritage site and the most-visited archaeological destination in Mexico.
