Balloon launch held in memory of teenager killed in W.Va. house explosion



Follansbee, W.Va. - Two weeks after a house explosion in Follansbee, W.Va. took a 13-year-old girl’s life, a balloon launch was held in her memory.

Hundreds of blue and white balloons were held and then launched by community members in memory Hannah Mozingo on Thursday night.

The cheerleader was killed when her home exploded earlier this month.

“It means a lot to us and our parents.  We just want to thank everyone for what they’re doing,” said Hannah’s brother, Tyler Mozingo.

Hannah’s parents, George and Tracy Mozingo, were recently released from the hospital and are recovering.
