2 die after airliner crash lands, spins, burns at San Francisco airport


Asiana Airlines Flight 214 left Seoul's Incheon International Airport earlier Saturday, according to FlightAware, a website that offers tracking services for private and commercial air traffic. An airline spokesman in Seoul told CNN that 291 passengers and 16 staff members were aboard.

Two people have died, city Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said.

At least 28 people hurt in the crash were being treated late Saturday afternoon at area hospitals -- 15 at San Francisco General Hospital, five at Stanford Hospital, five at California Pacific Medical Center's St. Luke's Campus and three at St. Francis Memorial Hospital -- hospital spokespeople said.
