Joseph Croce-Spinelli (1843-1875) and Theodore Henri Sivel (1834-1875) died of asphyxiation when their balloon ascended too high. A third man, Gaston Tissandier (1843-1899), survived and is buried in division 27. Sculpture by Alphonse Dumilatre (1844-1923). These two men who died together so high above the earth's surface, now rest together hand-in-hand.
