SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A third girl has died as a result of injuries sustained during the crash of Asiana Airline Flight 214, officials at San Francisco General Hospital said Friday.
The girl had been listed in critical condition since being transported to the hospital from San Francisco International Airport after the crash on Saturday.
Officials did not release the girl’s name or age, at the request of the family.
Her death on Friday was announced at a hastily called news conference outside the hospital emergency room just hours after the San Francisco Police Department confirmed that one of the teenage girls who died on the day of the crash had been run over by a fire truck.
San Francisco General Hospital this afternoon is still treating six patients, five adults and a child, who were injured in the crash at the airport on Saturday.
Two of those patients, both adults, remain in critical condition with injuries that include spinal cord and abdominal trauma, road rash and bone fractures, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.
The other four patients’ conditions range from serious to fair to good, she said.
The hospital has handled a total of 67 patients who were injured in the crash, according to Kagan.
