The balloon later landed safely in a park. According to media reports, the pilot and the shocked passengers were offered psychological support.

“Hot air balloon baskets are designed with safety in mind, specifically to prevent passengers from falling out accidentally or from any accidental exit,” local media cited a joint statement by the National Commercial Hot Air Ballooning Industry and the Australian Ballooning Federation as saying.

“Passengers and the pilot are understandably traumatised by the tragedy.”
