San Francisco, July 8:The ill-fated San Francisco crash raises yet more 'whys' and 'hows'. While experts are still investigating the actual reasons of the crash, another mystery surfaces regarding the death of one of the teenagers, killed in the crash.


The San-Francisco state coroner received two bodies of teenagers in the Asiana crash. Autopsy is being conducted on both of them to confirm whether one of them had been run over by a rescue vehicle.

Robert Foucrault, the San Mateo County Coroner claimed that he received a call from senior San Francisco Fire Department Officials that a girl might have been struck on the runaway by a rescue vehicle. The Coroner has directed an autopsy on the girl to confirm whether she was killed in the crash or due to injuries in 'a secondary incident'.

The incident occurred when Asiana Flight 214 (Boeing 777) attempted a landing below the speed limit and suddenly tried to take off, seconds before the landing. Two teenagers, aged 16, from China on a trip to the city were killed and several others were injured.
