A 49-year old Briton who was one of two survivors of the hot air balloon crash in Egypt leapt from the burning basket.

Mr Rennie, from Perth, Scotland, and the hot air balloon's pilot survived the crash that claimed the lives of 19 tourists.

His wife Yvonne tragically lost her life in the accident, along with fellow Brits artist Joe Bampton, 40, and his girlfriend Suzanna Gyetvai, 34, from Chelsea, London.

It has emerged that several other tourists in the balloon’s basket tried to escape by jumping from a height of 300ft as the hot air balloon got into difficulties near the Egyptian town of Luxor. Emergency services arrived at the scene to find bodies strewn across the ground.
