Search teams found the body of the final victim in a hot air balloon disaster in Virginia.

The hot-air balloon crashed into power lines and burst into flames Friday.

Witnesses say after a small explosion the basket and the balloon separated and they saw two people jump, or fall, as the balloon burned.

The body of pilot Daniel Kirk was found yesterday.

The two balloon passengers, Ginny Doyle and Natalie Lewis were found Saturday.

They were staff members of the University of Richmond Women's Basketball Program.

During Graduation Ceremonies yesterday at the University there was a moment of silence for the victims.
