Very lucky and grateful to be alive.
Those are some of the sentiments survivors of the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 shared with NBC Bay Area.
The flight on Saturday crash landed at the San Francisco International Airport, killing two people and wounding 180.
Eugene Rah said he was bracing for impact because he believed the Boeing 777 he was in was going to crash.
"The very last minute I hear the engine sound, which the pilot probably tried to send more power to lift the plane back up," he said. "I was holding things so tight."
Rah thought he was going to die.
"The impact was so powerful," he said.
