Some of the youngest survivors of the Asiana Airlines crash were reunited with their parents Tuesday morning. Family members arrived overnight and were shuttled to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Burlingame where the students are staying.
Some family members took a connecting flight from Los Angeles to SFO overnight and then boarded a shuttle bus where they were escorted to the hotel.
A passenger who was on the flight described how the situation was handled. “Rather than let everyone off the plane as they would normally do, they said they were letting off a few different people earlier so everyone stayed on the plane for a few extra minutes and few people got off some stairway or ladder,” passenger Matt Greenwood said. “I didn’t really know what was going on at the time.”
The parents of the two teen girls who were killed in the crash are expected to meet the coroner today in San Mateo County. The coroner said he probably will not release autopsy results for at least two to three weeks. He also stated he wants to wait until an investigation is complete.
The results of the autopsy could shed light on whether one of the girls died as a result of being hit by a fire rig on scene.
