No further information was immediately being released about the girl out of respect for her family, Kagan said.

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, 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.
