SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) - Chinese officials are urging investigators to determine responsibility for the death of a student who survived the Asiana Airlines crash only to be struck and killed by a fire vehicle.
Authorities said on Friday that 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan died of multiple injuries from being run over by what officials believe was a special firetruck used to spread fire-suppressing foam.
In a statement, the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco said it was saddened to learn the girl was run over and offered its condolences.
It also urged U.S. investigators to deal properly with the finding and affix responsibility for the death.
San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said she did not immediately foresee any disciplinary action. She called the death a tragic accident.
