Tragic and incredible 1968 photograph of two people falling to their death out of a hot air balloon after it hit electrical wires during a publicity stunt. Voted one of the top images of 1968 and listing the photographer as Vincent Wilkerson, this is an incredible piece of photography that should be much more famous for it's breath taking imagery. Issued by the United Press and with a full paper caption on the back as well.
