SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A survivor of a plane that crashed at San Francisco International Airport says there was no forewarning before the plane touched down hard.

Vedpal Singh, his arm in a sling, said at the airport on Saturday that he heard a loud sound after the plane touched down and knew something was horribly wrong.

He said the plane then went silent before people tried to get out anyway they could. The entire incident lasted about 10 seconds.

Singh was visibly shaken. He was traveling with his wife and at least one child from South Korea, where he works, and said he was in the middle of the aircraft.

He said it was "miraculous" that he survived.
