BEIJING (AP) - Chinese state media have identified the two people who died in a plane crash at San Francisco International Airport.

China Central Television said Sunday evening that the two victims were students at Jiangshan Middle School in China's eastern Zhejiang province. It cited a fax from Asiana Airlines, which operated the plane that crashed, to the Jiangshan city government. The two students were identified as Ye Mengyuan and Wang Linjia.

The airline said the two victims were 16 years old.

Of the 291 passengers on board, 141 were Chinese. At least 70 Chinese students and teachers were on the plane heading to summer camps, according to education authorities in China.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White says that there are two dead in the crash of an Asiana jetliner at San Francisco International Airport.

She also said several passengers were unaccounted for. She said, "This is a work in progress."

She said that the scene has been secured and has been turned over to the FBI. Terrorism has been ruled out.

She said at least 48 people were initially transported from the scene to area hospitals.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Flight 214 crashed while landing at 11:36 a.m. PDT. A video clip posted to YouTube showed smoke coming from a jet on the tarmac. Passengers could be seen jumping down the emergency slides.

Hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan says the adult patients range in age from 20 to their 40s. It was not immediately clear the ages of the children.

San Francisco-area broadcasters KNTV, KCBS and KTVU have reported that there were fatalities in Saturday's crash of the Asiana airlines flight from Seoul, South Korea.

But The Associated Press contacted police, fire and coroner's officials and was unable to confirm any deaths.

Previous Coverage:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An Asiana Airlines flight from Seoul, South Korea, crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, forcing passengers to jump down the emergency inflatable slides to safety. It was not immediately known whether there were any injuries.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown said the Boeing 777 was supposed to land on runway 28 left at the airport.  She said the sequence of events was still unclear, but it appeared the plane landed and then crashed.

A video clip posted to YouTube shows smoke coming from a silver-colored jet on the tarmac. Passengers could be seen jumping down the inflatable emergency slides. Television footage showed debris strewn about the tarmac and pieces of the plane lying on the runway.

Fire trucks had sprayed a white fire retardant on the wreckage.
