Video shows Asiana plane crash rescuers saw body of girl before running her over
Newly released video shows at least one firefighter saw 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan lying on the ground after the crash of Asiana flight 214 in San Francisco last July.
At one point a firefighter can be heard telling another “there’s a body in front of you.”
It’s possible rescuers thought Yuan — laying in the grass outside the wreckage — did not survive. No one checked to see if she was breathing. But she was. A medical examiner said Yuan actually survived the impact of the crash but was killed when a fire truck ran over her, twice.
Lawyers for Yuan’s family released the video, which may be graphic to some viewers.
