Transcript for Final Hot Air Balloon Victim's Body Recovered
But now to the latest on the deadly hot air balloon accident. It burst into flames after hitting a power line and the remains of the third age final victim finally recovered. An investigation is now under way to find out what happened. ABC's David Kerley has that story for us. Reporter: This morning, remembrances for ginny Doyle and Natalie lewis. It started fine. Oh, my god. Reporter: But as it tried to land -- You could hear them screaming "Please, dear god, sweet Jesus, help us. We're going to die. Reporter: The gondola ignited and it sent it skyward. We learned two on board jumped or fell out of the basket. This morning the bodies have been recovered. Doyle was an assistant women's basketball coach for the past 15 years. Lewis ran the team's operations. At the university, a moment of silence at graduation ceremonies. Reporter: The pilot, Daniel Kirk said he flew balloons for over 20 years. Reports say he did everything he could to release hot air but with the fire it kept rising. There was an explosion and the balloon and basket separated. It's not the first time they've hit lines. Donte' Stallworth was electrocuted. The shock felt two or three seconds but the longest of my life. Reporter: In the U.S. There were only five fatalities in the past dozen years but federal safety officials have recently suggested additional safety systems and design changes for moons. If you're going to take people for hire I think it's a legitimate question to ask is the commercial ballooning industry too lightly regulated. Reporter: Ntsb investigators are still on the scene this morning. They're looking for additional wreckage to determine exactly what happened. And help inform any calls for possible new regulations. Robin. We'll see. David, thanks very much.
