Grant Adamson, a scion of Malibu’s founding family, died early Tuesday when a hot-air balloon carrying him and his family crashed near the western Swiss town of Montbovon.

Swiss police said the Adamsons were on a vacation outing when the balloon fell 165 feet after crashing into an electric power line while trying to land after a two-hour flight from the town of Chateau-d’Oex.

Adamson’s death was first reported in the Malibu Times.

Adamson, 55, died at the scene. His wife, Terry, and two daughters, ages 20 and 24, were evacuated by helicopter to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The 65-year-old pilot also was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital by ambulance, police said.
