Bolzano, August 22 - A balloon-ride worker in the southern Tyrol died on Thursday after falling from a height of 100 metres. After a touristic excursion in the balloon, four out of five riders had disembarked when the balloon suddenly rose again in the air. The 66-year old balloon worker clung to the basket. A woman piloting the balloon tried but failed to pull the man in. The man’s strength gave out when the balloon had risen more than 100 metres in the air.
