LOS ANGELES, July 7 (Ita-Tass) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has launched an investigation into the Boeing 777 accident.
A passenger Boeing 777 belonging to the Republic of Korea’s Asiana Airlines crashed while landing at San Francisco on Saturday, July 6.
According to media reports, the plane flying from Seoul was making an emergency landing.
American TV stations broadcast images from the scene, showing pieces of the plane strewn over the runway and thick smoke billowing above them.
The media has already ruled out that a terrorist act could be a reason for the plane’s tough landing.
There were 291 passengers and 16 crew members onboard. According to preliminary reports, two people died and 103 got injuries of various degree of gravity. Over 40 passengers were taken to hospital. Ten of them, including two children, are in critical condition.
The passengers included 61 Americans, 77 South Koreans, 141 Chinese nationals and a citizen of Japan. The nationalities of the other passengers will be clarified later.
