    Passengers who survived the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at San Francisco’s airport are telling the media and the world through social media of the harrowing experience. Some passengers are recalling how everyone’s head hit the ceiling of the plane during the turbulent crash landing. Those on the plane also are saying that many evacuated themselves, which could have been the reason for their survival because of the fire that soon engulfed the aircraft. CNN is reporting that the two people who died held Chinese passports who were found on the runway, but it’s not sure if they were ejected or were able to exit the plane and then died. Among the others aboard included 141 Chinese nationals, 77 South Korean nationals, one Japanese person and 61 U.S. citizens. Just why the plane was so low when it landed and the position of the plane are among the issues being examined by National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators as well as aviation experts.
