The family of a California woman who fell 70 feet to her death in October of 2007 when the hot air balloon she was riding in was caught in power lines has reached a $1.4 million settlement. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, Star Trail Inc., Rainbow Ryders and the pilot of the balloon. It appears the $1.4 million payment under the settlement agreement was the extent of the policy limit of the liability insurance covering the death.
