Video shows aftermath of San Francisco plane crash

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Video from a firefighter's helmet camera following the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco shows rescuers were aware someone was on the ground outside the plane, before a fire truck struck and killed her.

KPIX-TV 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.

Yuan was one of three Chinese teens who died.

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.
