Asiana Airlines Flight 214
Video from a firefighter’s helmet camera shows rescuers were aware there was someone on the ground outside the Asiana plane, before she was fatally run over by a fire truck.
One of the two Chinese teenagers killed in the Asiana Airlines disaster was struck by a fire truck while she was covered by firefighting foam, a new detail that raised the possibility she may have survived the crash only to die in its chaotic aftermath.
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was 500 feet up and about a half-minute from San Francisco International Airport when its speed dropped below the threshold for a safe landing. It continued slowing until just about eight seconds before touchdown, when pilots recognized the need for more speed and throttled up.
