The hospital's chief of surgery says the victim was a female child, but her identity and age have been withheld at the request of her family. The girl had been in a critical condition since arriving at the hospital. Two adults injured in the crash remain in critical condition, and four others, including another minor, are also still in hospital, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

When I look at this crash I realize as bad as it was it was nowhere near the worst not even anywhere as bad as this one it's tragic the girl on the runway being run over by the fire department & the 2 paralyzed people so far, but to only end up with 3 fatalities & a lot of injuries shows the improvements to flight safety over the decades are making a big improvement in crash landing survivability. I think I shall donate some blood to the Red Cross to help out :/

I've been thinking of this while I've had now 45 days of rental cars this year due to our change in travel policies. I remember a company making a fire resistant plastic cover for your head. It would provide about 10 minutes of usable air in case of a fire in the cabin. It allows you to till see while the cabin fills with toxic chemicals. I was thinking of just buying some large turkey bags to take with me. Why wouldn't it work? Its designed for up to 700 degrees. Its only supposed to keep you from inhaling toxic fumes while you crawl your way to an exit. its just an idea.

Two dead in the plane crash, one dead by firetruck. Are you now afraid to fly, or are you afraid to be near a fire?
