SAN FRANCISCO (July 11, 2013)--Emergency 911 calls placed by passengers aboard an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 that crashed at San Francisco International Airport described a scene of chaos, begging for help and saying ambulances weren't coming fast enough.
The California Highway Patrol released the 911 calls late Wednesday.
One caller told a 911 dispatcher, "There are no ambulances here. We have been on the ground 20 minutes."
Another told a dispatcher there was a woman on the runway with severe burns to her head.
"She will probably die soon if we don't get help,” the caller said.
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash-landed Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring many others as it skittered and spun 100 feet.
San Francisco officials say ambulances could not come too close out of concern that the plane would explode.
