An Asiana Airline Boeing 777 from Seoul, South Korea, has crash landed at San Francisco International Airport leaving two dead and more than 180 injured.

The two fatalities were identified by state media on Sunday as two Chinese schoolgirls, Ye Mengyuan and Wang Linjia, both 16, who had been traveling as part of a group from Jiangshan Middle School in China’s eastern Zhejiang province. At least 49 others are in a critical condition.

The deceased had been recovered outside the plane on the runway, according to San Francisco fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White. The Asiana CEO Yoon Young-Doo said the two had been sitting at the back of the plane, which was quickly ripped off on crash impact.

“We’ll make our utmost efforts to cope with the tragedy.”
