SAN FRANCISCO (WPRI) -- Officials say one person is unaccounted for and two are dead in the crash of an Asiana Airline flight.
The Boeing 777 with 291 passengers on board and 16 crew members crashed during its landing at San Francisco Airport Saturday afternoon.
Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said 181 people were taken to local hospitals.
A spokesperson for the San Francisco General Hospital says it is treating 10 patients in critical condition, including two children.
Eyewitness and television video shows debris strewn about the tarmac and pieces of the plane lying on the runway. Passengers were seen jumping down the emergency slides after the crash.
Fire trucks sprayed a white fire retardant on the heavily charred wreckage to put out the fire.
The National Transportation Safety Board says it is sending a team of investigators to San Francisco to probe the crash of the flight. Officials tell CBS News they have ruled out terrorism or suspicious activity as a cause.
