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.
"I mean we were sure that we had just seen a lot of people die. It was awful," she said. "And it looked like the plane had completely broken apart. There were flames and smoke just billowing."
She said when she first saw the flight she noticed right away that the angle of its approach seemed strange.
