SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The parents of a teenage girl who was run over and killed by two emergency vehicles after an Asiana Airlines crash have filed a claim against the city of San Francisco, saying rescuers were reckless and poorly trained.

In a claim filed this week, attorneys for the parents of 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan say firefighters who first saw the girl after the July 6 crash should have examined her and moved her somewhere safe.

An autopsy revealed Yuan was alive before the vehicles hit her. Firefighters told investigators they assumed she was dead and hurried on toward the damaged aircraft.

In all, 304 of the 307 people aboard the plane survived after the airliner slammed into a seawall at the end of a runway during final approach for landing.
