ISTANBUL- A hot-air balloon flying over a tourist destination in central Turkey crashed after colliding with another balloon on Monday, the Anatolian news agency reported.

A Brazilian passenger was killed and 24 other people were injuried when the accident occurred near the city of Nevsehir in Cappadocia, an area famous for its geological features called fairy chimneys. 

Balloon rides are a popular way to see the cone-like formations, created by the erosion of volcanic ash around them.
