Balfouria resident documenting Yogev Cohen hanging on balloon: “I thought it was part of an attraction”

A resident of Moshav Balfouria, who Amar recorded this morning (Tuesday) from the camera on his cell phone the tragic event in which Yogev Cohen from Kibbutz Jezreel was hung on a hot air balloon and from which Road 60 near the moshav fell to his death.

Amar recalls the dramatic moments: “I went out to work in the morning as usual. Balloons are not uncommon in our Balfouria seat, I stopped the car and took some pictures of the balloon. I saw someone swinging, but I thought it was part of an attraction. I took some frames and sent one of the pictures to the group. Of work and I wrote them a ‘wonderful day’ “.

Why did you photograph this balloon?

“I always take balloons, they pass right by my window and even today I took pictures. When I got to work they started running news reports that he had fallen to his death. When I heard that I was in the market. I supposedly took a beautiful picture that turned out to be a tragic event.”

When you recounted the incident afterwards did you have any regrets that you might have had to help him or call the rescue forces?

“Then when I heard about the case I wondered maybe I should have done something when I stopped and took pictures, but there was not much to do. All along I did not imagine it would get into such a situation. It was just a beautiful picture of a landscape. “Photographing them from below, I did not think it was someone who stumbled or fell. The third picture I took was with the flames of the fire that it shows that everything is fine and the ball continues to rise and I did not assume it was something tragic. That’s how I treated it.”
