After a hot-air balloon collided with the Austrian Alps, nine people were injured.
The Bucklige Welt area, which is known for its hilly terrain, was the location of the accident. It is located 53 miles (86km), south of Vienna.
Two of the passengers sustained serious injuries and were discovered with two other victims in Untereck, a rural community.
Three miles from Stang, five other passengers sustained minor injuries.
The exact cause of the crash is currently unknown.
Two people were seriously injured and were flown by helicopter to the local hospitals.
According to The Kurier in Austria, the balloon was just about to touch down on a meadow when it crashed.
It is believed that the aircraft fell too fast and bounced off of the ground, knocking out four people, including the pilot and copilot.
They were then dragged for a few meters before the plane took off again, still carrying the five remaining passengers.
According to the newspaper, the pilot instructed passengers in the air how to make an emergency landing via phone before the balloon came to a stop in a forest.
At the scene of the tragedy, the pilot and three passengers were declared deceased.
After being rushed to the hospital with severe injuries, a fifth victim died.
Three people were killed and one child were injured when a aircraft collided with an air-cooled hot balloon. The hot air balloon crashed into an apartment block located in Wesel, 35 miles north from Dusseldorf in July 2020.
