Asiana Passengers Call 911 Begging for Help

Posted: Updated:

Emergency calls from people aboard a plane that crashed at San Francisco International Airport portray a scene of chaos, with passengers begging for help and saying ambulances weren't coming fast enough.
 
The California Highway Patrol released the 911 calls late Wednesday.
 
One caller tells a 911 dispatcher: "There are no ambulances here. We have been on the ground 20 minutes."
 
Another tells a dispatcher there's a woman on the runway with severe burns to her head. The caller says, "She will probably die soon if we don't get help."
 
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash-landed Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring many others as it skittered and spun 100 feet.
 
San Francisco officials say ambulances could not come too close out of concern that the plane would explode.

Meanwhile, survivors of the Asiana flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport have returned to the wreckage site.

Passenger Ben Levy says about 30 survivors and 30 family members visited the site on Wednesday in three buses that left from the hotel where many of them are staying. They were kept about 50 yards away from the wreckage, which is surrounded by metal railing.

Levy says some people cried while others appeared to be in disbelief.

He says he went to the site to meet other passengers and share stories about how they got off the plane and how they are feeling. (AP)
