Date posted: July 6, 2013

A Boeing 777 from South Korea crashed Saturday as it landed at San Francisco International Airport, sending up a huge fireball and spinning before finally coming to a stop. Early reports indicate that it lost its tail section and both wings.

An airline spokesman in Seoul told CNN that 291 passengers and 16 staff members were aboard Flight 214.

At least 28 people hurt in the crash were being treated late Saturday afternoon at area hospitals

Air traffic control audio between the airport’s tower and Flight 214 crew members suggests that those on the ground knew there was a problem, promising that “emergency vehicles are responding.”

“We have everyone on their way,” the air traffic controller said, according to LiveATC.net, a website that provides air traffic control audio.
