SAN FRANCISCO — Video from a firefighter’s helmet camera following the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco shows rescuers were aware there was someone on the ground outside the plane, before she was fatally run over by a fire truck.
CBS affiliate KPIX-TV first aired parts of the footage Tuesday night.
In the video, a firefighter with a helmet camera tells the driver of a fire truck that there’s a person in front of him. A fire truck-mounted camera shows a firefighter directing the truck away from 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan.
The San Francisco Chronicle first reported on the video’s content.
KPIX reports the video was obtained from a person close to the girl’s family.
