Virginia hot air balloon crash kills at least two

At least two people have died after a hot air balloon hit a power line and burst into flames in front of a horrified US crowd.

The bodies were found after Friday's accident in Richmond, Virginia.

Two passengers jumped or fell from the gondola as the pilot attempted to control the balloon, police say.

Corinne Geller from the Virginia State Police Department gave an update to journalists on Saturday.
