The Plane Crash of Asiana Flight 214 is certainly not behind us yet. In fact, more and more tragic news seems to head our way. For instance, although two victims were found dead on the scene, that was not the end of mortalities. A third victim, Liu Yipeng, died last week on July 12th from injuries.
Now, we are faced with more tragic news. When the body of 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan was found under flame-retardant foam and in line of tracks from a rescue vehicle, everyone was horrified with the possibility that she survived the plane crash only to be struck down by a rescue vehicle racing to the plane.
Now, it is confirmed that the cause of Ye Meng Yuan’s death was in fact the vehicle. Coroner Robert Foucrault confirmed that her death was due to “multiple blunt injuries consistent with being run over by a motor vehicle. Those injuries indicate she was alive at the time. Internal bleeding ruled out any chance she was already dead when she was struck.” Tragically, he admits, “She was alive when she received the injuries.”
