SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Salvation Army is providing translation and family assistance operations following the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 on Saturday at San Francisco International Airport that left two people dead and more than 180 injured.

According to Salvation Army officials, translation services are being provided in Korean, Cantonese, and Mandarin to help Flight 214 passengers and government officials communicate.

Translators are also accompanying passengers to hospitals and helping passengers communicate with physicians. The Salvation Army translators are providing emotional support to the patients as well.

As a part of the Family Assistance Center, a clothing room has been set up to provide necessities at an undisclosed location, to respect the privacy of the passengers and their families.
