All remaining passengers and crew members on board Asiana Airlines Flight 214 have been accounted for following a crash at San Francisco International Airport that killed two people Saturday, officials said.
A total of 182 people were taken to nine Bay Area hospitals following the 11:27 a.m. crash of the Boeing 777, which was attempting to land on runway 28 at the time of the incident, according to San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White.
A total of 49 people in critical condition were the first to be transported from the scene, officials said. Those transported later were in varying conditions ranging from serious to good. Another 123 were uninjured.
When firefighters arrived on the scene the plane's chutes had deployed and multiple people were coming down the chutes and walking to safety, Hayes-White said.
The two fatalities were found outside the plane on the runway when firefighters arrived on the scene.
Some passengers were found in the water when firefighters arrived on scene, but the plane was not in the water, Hayes-White said.
Given that the plane was on fire following the crash, Hayes-White speculated that passengers might have sought out the water to deal with flames or burns.
The tail had separated from the plane during the crash, she said.
. Mayor Ed Lee noted that the crash "could have been much worse."
"Having visited the site with staff and with police and the fire department, it is incredible and we are very lucky that we have so many survivors," Lee said. "But we still have many in critical condition and our thoughts and prayers are with them."
Flight 214 originated out of Shanghai, China, and had made a stop in Seoul, South Korea before traveling to SFO.
Numbers provided by the airline indicate that of the 291 passengers on board, 77 were Korean citizens, 141 were Chinese, 61 were U.S. citizens, one was a Japanese citizen and 11 others were of varying other nationalities.
The accident scene was secured and turned over to the Federal Burea of Investigations at 2 p.m. The FBI will be working with the National Transportation Safety Board on the investigation.
"At this point in time there is no indication of terrorism," FBI Special Agent Dave Johnson said earlier today. "The FBI will be working closely with the NTSB to determine the cause of this incident."
