Federal investigators say they found parts of the Asiana Airlines plane that crashed at San Francisco International in the waters of San Francisco Bay. San Francisco fire officials say they encountered smoke, leaking jet fuel and passengers coming down on chutes when they arrived at the Asiana airlines crash scene. Lt. Christine Emmons said at a news conference on Monday that she and her partner ran up a chute into the plane. They found four passengers trapped in the back. The conditions in the plane were changing rapidly, with the fire coming down on rescuers and the smoke thickening. Emmons said the trapped passengers were pulled out to safety. The crew of the Asiana Airlines plane that crashed Saturday at San Francisco airport tried to increase its speed and abort its landing just seconds before it hit the seawall in front of the airport runway, according to flight recorders recovered by the National Transportation Safety Board.
