Fortunately, it was reported that there were no deaths or injuries in the accident.

Pilot error?

While Pilot Caner Uzun attributed the incident to the reverse wind, it was noted that there were no reverse winds in the area at the time of the incident. Despite numerous balloons flying in the same area, only this balloon was swept away. Experts consulted by Turizm Güncel, suggest that the accident was most likely due to pilot error.
