College basketball staffer official was on balloon

DOSWELL, Va. (AP) — A family spokeswoman says a University of Richmond women’s basketball team staff member was one of two passengers on a hot air balloon that crashed in Virginia.

Family spokeswoman Julie Snyder told The Associated Press on Saturday that Natalie Lewis’ body has not been found.

The remains of the pilot and the second passenger have been recovered. They have not been identified.

The three were in a balloon Friday night that witnesses said crashed amid screams for help from the balloon.

Lewis was director of basketball operations at Richmond and a former swimmer there.
