What they don't yet know is whether the pilot's inexperience with the type of aircraft and at San Francisco's airport played a role.
A federal safety official said Sunday the cockpit voice recorder from Asiana Flight 214 showed the jetliner received a warning that it could stall because it was flying too slowly and tried to increase its speed before it crashed.
San Francisco General Hospital Chief of Surgery Margaret Knudson said at least two passengers of the Asiana Airlines plane crash that were treated there are paralyzed and two others suffered road rash-type injuries suggesting they were dragged. She said doctors at the hospital have also seen abdominal and orthopedic injuries and head trauma. Patients with severe abdominal injuries and spinal fractures appear to have suffered them from being thrown forward and back while restrained by seat belts.Less
