A teenager survived the Asiana Airlines crash in San Francisco only to be struck and killed by a fire vehicle rushing to fight a blaze that broke out on the plane, authorities said on Friday.
Police officers threw utility knives up to crew members inside the burning wreckage of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 so they could cut away passengers' seat belts. Passengers jumped down emergency slides, escaping from thick billowing smoke. And amid the chaos, some urged fellow passengers to keep calm, even as flames tore through the fuselage of the Boeing 777.
An Asiana Airlines flight crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, killing two Chinese teenagers, injuring dozens of others and forcing passengers to jump down the emergency inflatable slides to safety as flames tore through the plane.

Hayes-White told the San Francisco Chronicle she was concerned about the privacy of victims and firefighters.
