1 in crucial situation after an accident with critical accidents in NE Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Every year, the youth soccer leagues hold fundraising drives to get the items they need for their season. But this year a local team is giving back part of their raffle proceeds to the families of the victims of the balloon crash in June.

Martin and Mary Martinez, Susan and John Montoya, and pilot, Nicholas Meleski, all died in a balloon crash in June. “Fifteen or 20 minutes later, I heard the balloon crash,” said Ernie Martinez during a vigil he organized for the victims in June. “It was too late. It hit me hard, I might be the last one to wave to them all,” said Martinez.
