Plane Crash Survivor Could Feel Tail Hit Ground

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The survivor of a plane crash at San Francisco International Airport says she could feel the plane's tail hit the ground and walked onto the tarmac with her injured son through a hole that opened up in the aircraft.

Thirty-four-year-old Wen Zhang says outside San Francisco General Hospital on Sunday that the hole was near where the bathroom used to be. She said she had no time to be scared, though baggage was falling around her, people were screaming and the window in her aisle had broken.

Her 4-year-old son hit the seat in front of him and broke his leg. She was unhurt.

The Asiana Airlines crash while it was landing Saturday left two dead and dozens injured.
