Bay Area hospitals are continuing to treat victims of Saturday’s deadly Asiana Airlines crash, and at least six remain in critical condition.
Two 16-year-old girls died and more than 180 people were hurt when Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport late Saturday morning.
Sixty-two people on the flight were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where five patients, including one juvenile, remained in critical condition today.
Those patients suffered spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, abdominal injuries, internal bleeding, road rash and fractures.
There are seven other passengers still at San Francisco General today, listed in conditions ranging from serious to good. Those patients are two children and five adults.
A total of 55 patients were taken to Stanford Hospital after the crash.
Of the five who remain there today, one is in critical but stable condition. Two others are in fair condition and the last two are in good condition, a hospital spokesman said.
Seven juvenile victims who were taken to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital after the crash were released Sunday evening.
A number of other Bay Area hospitals also accepted patients after Saturday’s plane crash, including St. Mary’s Medical Center, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center.
