SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Prosecutors announce Friday that they will not seek criminal charges against a firefighter who ran over and killed a survivor of the Asiana Airlines flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent out an e-mail with his decision on Friday.
“After a review of the reports and evidence provided to us, I have concluded that there is no criminal culpability for any individual involved in the response to the airline crash. The death of 16-year-old Le Mangyuan was a tragic accident that did not involve any violation of our criminal laws,” read the release. “Our review included consideration of the police reports, fire fighter reports, other first responder reports, the conclusions of the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office and a review of the content of the numerous videos of events at the scene following the airliner crash.”
