Husband IDs wife as victim of California limo fire

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - The husband of one of the five women killed when a limousine became engulfed in flames on a San Francisco Bay bridge says their 10-year-old daughter cries for her mother at night and is still working on paintings to give her for Mother's Day.

John Balon identified his wife, 39-year-old Jenni Balon, as one of the victims of the Saturday night fire to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 38-year-old Balon says his daughter and 1-year-old son are still looking for their mother. He told his daughter that she is in heaven and wouldn't be happy if they worried about her.

The limousine was carrying nine women celebrating the recent wedding of another victim, Neriza Fojas, when it caught fire on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. Four women escaped.
