(Newser) – Two passengers have been left paralyzed in the San Francisco plane crash, which also killed two others—now identified as Wang Linjia and Ye Mengyuan, both 16-year-old girls from China. Nineteen victims of the crash remain at San Francisco General Hospital, six of them in critical condition, says Chief of Surgery Margaret Knudson, per Time. Two are being treated for severe road rash, likely a result of being dragged. Others are suffering from spinal fractures and abdominal injuries, probably from being thrown around in their seat belts, says Knudson.
