LOS ANGELES: A third girl died Friday of injuries sustained in the Asiana jet crash in San Francisco, as authorities confirmed that a firetruck ran over one of the other victims.
Two female Chinese teenagers died on July 6 when Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport, with the accident leaving more than 180 others injured.
The third victim had been in critical condition and died early Friday, San Francisco General Hospital said in a statement, adding that the family had asked further details to be withheld.
China’s official news service Xinhua described the victim as a female Chinese student.
The third death was confirmed shortly after San Francisco police told Agence France-Presse that one of the teenagers “had been run over at least one time by a fire truck.”
