This summer hundreds of Bay Area kids enjoying family vacations will be heading to airports and boarding planes.

Dr. Victor Carrion, a psychiatrist and trauma expert at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, says its possible some children may be afraid to fly after seeing pictures and video of the deadly Asiana Airlines Flight 214 plane crash at San Francisco International Airport.

"Fear after a situation like this is normal, we worry about fear that lasts longer than a month after an event," he says.

Carrion also says kids may become even more fearful of flying because the two passengers killed in the crash were young. Both victims were 16.

He provides advice on dealing with kids disturbed by the horrific plane crash in Marianne Favro's video report above.
