3rd Victim in Asiana Crash Was Also Headed to L.A. Summer Camp
The third fatality from July 6's Asiana jetliner crash in San Francisco was identified as Liu Yi Peng, a 15-year-old who was part of the same group of Chinese students headed to summer camp in L.A. that included the other two victims.
That according to the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend, which says ...
... Liu was still in her seat when first responders found her following the crash at San Francisco International Airport.
Liu was riding with a group of 35 people headed to L.A. for a summer program at West Valley Christian School. She was in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital until her death Friday.
That group of students and chaperones on-board also included Ye Mingyuan and Wang Linjia, both 16. The best friends who died after being ejected from the plane when its tail came off as it collided with a sea wall at the end of an SFO runway.

One of those first two fatalities might have been run over by a fire truck responding to the crash, San Francisco's police chief said. She might have been obscured and covered in foam sprayed to stop a raging fire on the plane.
