The four pilots of the Asiana jet that crash-landed in San Francisco are being treated for psychological trauma and injuries caused by the accident, South Korean officials said Wednesday.
The Land, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry officials said the pilots have been hospitalized following medical checkups after returning home over the weekend.
Asiana Flight 214 crashed July 6 at San Francisco International Airport, killing three and injuring dozens.
The pilots underwent questioning by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board and South Korean investigators while in the United States.
South Korean officials plan to conduct a separate interview with them. The ministry officials said that could begin as early as Friday if the doctors allow it.
The officials gave no further details and spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department rules.
