Wochit 1:29 mins

As the shock fades from the crash of Asiana Airlines flight 214, investigators are probing what led the Boeing 777 to crash land at San Francisco International Airport. Chinese state media revealed that two 16-year-old Chinese citizens, Ye Mengyuan and Wang Linjia, were killed. The other 305 people on board survived. 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 the smoke. One walked through a hole where a rear bathroom had been. Amid the chaos, some urged fellow passengers to keep calm, even as flames tore through the Boeing 777's fuselage. As investigators try to determine what caused the crash of Flight 214 that killed two passengers at San Francisco International Airport, the accident left many wondering how nearly all 307 people aboard were able to make it out alive. San Francisco's fire chief said 19 people remain hospitalized, six of them in critical condition, from a plane crash at San Francisco International Airport. Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said at a news conference outside San Francisco General Hospital that the two 16-year-old girls who died were found on either side of the plane near the "front middle."
