More details have emerged about the Albuquerque balloon pilot who died over the weekend near Philadelphia.
Investigators say Jeff Hooten fell out of his basket Sunday while reaching for a rope to deflate the balloon and was dragged after getting stuck between the basket and the ground.
An autopsy report revealed the 47-year-old died of an accidental neck injury, and not a heart attack as previously suspected.
