OMG!! When this broke and I heard the first-reported fatality was caused by a rescue vehicle running over a surviving passenger, I thought, “Adding to the tragedy, but this sadly CAN happen in the smoke and flames and foam and confusion.” But to NOW find out she was examined by medical personal….pronounced ‘dead’ while still alive and left to lie…..AND THEN RUN OVER BY A SECOND EMERGENCY VEHICLE?!?!? INEXCUSABLE!!

“Video from firefighter’s helmet cam sheds new light on death of teen at Asiana Airlines crash site”

“The battalion chief started walking toward the wreckage. Johnson looked toward the area in front of the left wing where Ye was found, but only foam was visible.

As Johnson walked toward the back of the jet, the footage shows, a foam-spraying rig called Rescue 10 was in the distance, driving away from the area where Ye was discovered.

[…]

The two firefighters aboard Rescue 10, Roger Phillips and Jimmy Yee, have told investigators they spotted Ye in the fetal position on the ground just before they drove off, according to Fire Department sources and others involved in the probe.

Fire Lt. Christine Emmons and at least one other firefighter looked at the girl and concluded she was dead, said the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the probe publicly.

According to the San Mateo County coroner, however, Ye was alive for several more minutes, until a second rig ran over her.”
