16 dead after hot air balloon crashes in Texas

Authorities have found the remains of the third occupant of the hot air balloon that burst into flames at a Virginia festival, police said Sunday. Now investigators are trying to determine what made the balloon drift into power lines, catch fire and crash, killing the pilot and two passengers. Donald Kirk told CNN on Sunday that his son, Daniel Kirk, was on the balloon when it crashed. The 66-year-old Army veteran had been piloting balloons for more than 30 years, lived for flying and never flew if the weather conditions weren't right, his father said. "He was a very good pilot," Donald Kirk said. "Something happened, I just don't know what happened."
