DailyDirt: Asiana Flight 214

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed at SFO last weekend, and plenty of people were glued to the TV to find out what happened and why. While the NTSB (National Traffic Safety Board) investigation will likely take weeks or months to come to final conclusions, there were plenty of citizen journalists to augment the 24hr-news cycle. Here are just a few informative examples of traditional media and social media coverage of this tragic accident.

Re: NTSB press conference today..

Look at it this way, this was a plane crash that had 305 out of 307 survivors.

Granted, there were other factors that helped that startling number of survivors. To name a few, this happened at a major airport (where there’s emergency services), a low speed crash and the fuselage didn’t roll over or cartwheel.

But the Boeing 777 doesn’t look too bad at this point– although that could change depending on what the NTSB finds out…
