CNN has the video shot by witness Fred Hayes as Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed on landing at San Francisco International Airport yesterday killing two 16-year-old girls and injuring 182 people.

Thom Patterson, CNN:

Amateur video surfaced on CNN Sunday showing Asiana Airlines Flight 214 approaching the runway and striking what appears to be a seawall before rotating counterclockwise and coming to a stop. Fred Hayes said he shot the video about a mile from the crash scene.

“We were expecting a lot of burns,” said Dr. Margaret Knudson, San Francisco General Hospital’s chief of surgery. “But we didn’t see them.”

At San Francisco General, 19 survivors remained hospitalized, six of them in critical condition.

The cockpit voice recorder of Asiana Flight 214 reveal the pilots called to initiate a “go-around” at another landing 1.5 second before impact, NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman told reporters on Sunday.

“There is no discussion of any aircraft anomalies or concerns with the approach,” National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman told reporters Sunday, providing an update on Saturday’s plane crash. She said a call from a crew member to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds before impact.

    I’ve been marveling at the minimal loss of life, and especially so after seeing this amazing video. I’ll bet the NTSB is happy to have their hands on it.
    As far as the other story, the possibility that one of the girls was run over by a rescue vehicle. I so hope not. What a dreadful thing for a driver and crew to have to learn.
