boarded a flight bound for sfo. prior to leaving, he told the media in south korea he would personally visit each and every one of those people still in the hospital following saturday's deadly crash. we do continue learning more details and more information about that crash this morning. happy tuesday. thank you
for joining us everybody. i'm jon kelley. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. some of the youngest survivors of the asiana air crash are reunited with their parents who arrived in the bay area overnight. "today in the bay's" christie smith is live at the crowne-plaza in burlingame where students are staying. good morning, christie. >> reporter: good morning to you. well, one of the parents told a newspaper in china that he was worried sick about his daughter leaving on that flight and then, of course, word of the tragic crash. now, we're hat a hotel in burlingame. out front you can see there is a sheriff's deputy staying outside the hotel that ye mengyuan and
wang linjia were seated in the back of the plane when it clipped the seawall and crash landed saturday. both girls just 16 years old were killed. they had come from china to visit google, stanford and attend a camp in southern california for a couple of weeks. another part, though, of all this is whether
one of those girls was perhaps hit by a fire rig in the response to that emergency at sfo. the families arrived at the airport late last night and were driven to the hotel here in burlingame. one passenger on this flight says that the plane actually stopped before the gate to let them out. >> rather than let everyone off the plane as they would normally do, they said they were letting off a few different people earlier. so everyone stayed on the plane for a few extra minutes, and a few people i guess got off on some stairway or ladder or something. i didn't really know what was going on at the time. i was just kind of, like,
chilling. but i guess they were related to the people who died in the plane crash. >> reporter: a little later today the families are expected to meet with the coroner in san mateo county who now says that autopsy results will not be released probably for another two to three weeks until the investigation is totally complete. that, of course, might reveal whether one of these girls was actually killed by that responding fire rig. initially those results were expected in a matter of days. now we're hearing it will be a matter of weeks. live in burlingame, christie smith, "today in the bay." stanford's blood center is calling for more donations to help replenish its supply after the crash. the center says there's an urgent need for type o positive and o negative bloods. stanford hospital and lucile packard children's hospital took in 55 survivors following saturday's crash. the center says supplies were
already low following the 4th of july holiday. a long list of questions remain about that crash. ntsb investigators right now focusing in on the low speed and the low approach. they're also sifting through what remains of the plane for any clues. they're also talking with all four pilots. "today in the bay's" bob redell is live in burlingame with what we're learning new this morning. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jon. we spoke with debra hersman, the ntsb chair, saying they only got through interviewing two pilots because of a translation issue from korean to english. the idea is, perhaps this morning, they would interview the other two pilots, one of those pilots being the flying pilot, the pilot that was at the controls when asiana flight 214 crashed at sfo. the safety agency, ntsb, is supposed to be holding a news
conference later this afternoon and the idea they impart on us some of the information they glean from these interviews. you might recall that the captain was in training, having never landed a 777 at sfo leading to questions of why didn't his copilot who was experienced in the aircraft take over, and if he did, why did the plane crash? we have a better y50id of what the timeline was like. about a minute and 12 auto pilot was disengaged. 34 seconds later, 500 feet, 134 knots, below the 137-knot minimum required for a safe landing. it takes oobt 28 seconds before the crew realizes they have a problem and try to correct. at eight seconds before impact, the plane is now at 112 knots, 125 feet, much lower than that minimum threshold. the lowest speed before impact was 103 knots. just to give you a sense of how
slow this plane was going, just too slow. investigators are hoping their interviews will give a better sense of what exactly was going on in that cockpit. >> whether they were hand-flying the airplane, whether auto pilot was on, what kind of reliance they might have had on automation in the xok pit and how well they understood the automation and what it was supposed to do. >> there is the wreckage of ace nana flight 214, the boeing 777 that lays burned out on the edge of the runway here at sfo. we asked the ntsb how long will it be before the wreckage was removed. they don't have an exact timeline. all they would say is it moulds most likely be several days. bob redell, "today in the bay." a long and intense investigation. make sure to stay with us for today in the bay.

when it crash landed saturday at sfo. there are questions about whether one of the girls may have been hit and killed by a responding fire rig that day. some of the family members took a connecting flitd from l.a. to sfo and boarded a shuttle bus and were escorted back to the hotel where we are. one passenger on the flight said it was handled in a rather unusual way. >> rather than let everyone off the plane as they would normally do, they said they were letting off a few different people earlier. everyone stayed on the plane for a few extra minutes and a few people got off on some stairway or ladder or something. i didn't really know what was going on at the time. i just was kind of like chilling. but i guess they were related to the people who died in the plane crash. >> reporter: the two girls who died had actually come here from china and planned to visit stanford and google and attend a
camp in southern california while learning all about u.s. culture. parents are expected to meet with the coroner today in san mateo county who now says that he'll probably not release the autopsy results for another two to three weeks that will show if one of these girls did indeed die as a result of being hit by a fire rig. initially those results expected to be -- preliminary results expected to be released earlier. now he's saying he wants to wait until a full investigation is completed. reporting live in burlingame, christie smith, "today in the bay." the big part of that story, the president of asiana airlines already on his way to the bay area to meet with the families of the students, scheduled to land at sfo at noon. yesterday he was personally apologizing to the father of one of the girls killed during saturday's crash. you can see no shocker, a very intense and very upset father talking to asiana air's president. just before boarding a plane in seoul this morning he told
the media he'll make a sincere apology to passengers when he arrives and visits people actually still in the hospital. he maintains it's still too early to say if the crash was caused by pilot errors. this morning a long list of questions remaining about the crash. ntsb are focused on the low speed and low approach, trying to sift through whatever remains of the plane and the clues they can find. bob redell live in burlingame. bob, you had a chance to talk to the ntsb chairman. >> reporter: yes, we did, this morning. good morning, jon, about a half hour ago. she did inform us the ntsb has interviewed two of the four pilots on board asiana flight 214. they have yet to interview the actual flying pilot, the pilot at the controls during the time of the crash saturday morning. the plan is for them to conduct the interview some time today, perhaps this morning and release some of the details of that
conversation during a news conference that is scheduled for some time this afternoon. and they hope to glean the kind of information that the flight data and cockpit voice recorders cannot give them. in other words, they're trying to get into the heads of these pilots to figure out exactly what was going on during the final approach. you might recall that the captain was in training. that's the flying pilot i was referring to, having never landed a 777 at sfo before. leading to questions of why didn't his copilot who was experienced with this aircraft take over and if he did, why did the plane crash? the plane was at 500 feet at a speed of 134 knots. it needs to be at 137 knots in order to land safely. it takes another 28 seconds now before the crew realized they are going too low and too slow. they try to correct. at eight seconds before impact,
they're now at 112 knots. again, you can see how slow they are compared to the 137 minimum threshold and about a second and a half out, they tried to abort the landing but clearly failed. >> how is it it took them roughly 28 seconds to realize they were coming in too low and too slow? >> i have to tell you, the cockpit is a very dynamic environment. there's a lot going on. there's a lot of monitoring that's taking place and a lot of communications. we really have to take a look at what they understood about the aircraft, how they communicated and what their procedures were. >> reporter: there were four pilots on this flight. remember this was a transpacific flight. they have a backup crew so one crew can rest while the other is flying the aircraft. the idea was to interview all four pilots yesterday, but the interview took a little bit longer than expected because there's a translation issue of going from korean to english. again, they'll interview the
other two pilots today, perhaps this morning. that would include the flying pilot himself. and they are hoping to release some of the information from those interviews during a news conference scheduled sometime later this afternoon. reporting live in burlingame across from sfo, bob redell, "today in the bay." flights in and out of san francisco will experience delays for the foreseeable future. the ntsb says it won't clear the wreckage from the airport's runway until its team completed its investigation into this deadly crash. three of the runways at the airport, however, are open this morning. this was the very same situation yesterday and it caused delays longer than one hour, also canceled 84 flights. we are in contact with sfo, and we will be giving you flight updates as soon as we get them into the newsroom. make sure to stay with us on nbc bay area all morning long. we will be having updates from the hotel in burlingame where the families of some of the
people on asiana flight 214 are staying. plus we'll also bring you the latest word on that investigation from the ntsb. as always, of course, you can get the latest details on our website, nbcbayarea.com. at 5:36, we're also learning this morning about a boeing 777 flight that was supposed to land at sfo late yesterday. instead it was diverted hours after takeoff because of a technical problem. the crew on the japanese airlines plane discovered a leak in the hydraulic system that controls the plane's flaps about three hours into the flight yesterday. the plane returned to tokyo's airport without incident. all 236 people on board are okay. the former head of san mateo county probation department expected back in court today. stewart forest is currently charged with two counts of possession of child pornography. he's out on bail this morning. prosecutors say they found dozens of images on his computer, but his attorney says the images were there for legitimate work related purposes.
today's hearing is seen as procedural. dozens of people displaced by a deadly apartment fire in redwood city will be allowed to return home today to pack up belongings. the fire broke out early sunday morning at the hallmark house apartments on woodside road. one person did die, another 21 were injured including three firefighters. in all, a total of 91 people were left homeless by this fire. this morning the red cross opening a support center in redwood city to help provide shelter and other services. it looks like emeritus team new zealand will be sailing alone again today. they were scheduled to race about sweden's team in the afternoon in the louis vuitton cup series. but the swedish team remains out of commission until they rebuild a new boat following the deadly crash that killed crew member andrew simpson. meantime italy's team luna rossa still protesting the recent rule change. their complaint currently under review by the cup's international jury.
if you want to watch the team race solo out there today, you can see all the action live on cozy tv. it all starts at noon. if you're up early with us, you probably missed the end of last night's giant's game. things finally wrapped up just before 1:00 this morning, about five hours after the first pitch. the giants and mets were tied at three ones apiece until the 16th inning. that's when the mets scored and the giants couldn't respond. final score 4-3. two teams will be back at it again tonight at 7:15 at at&t park. tough loss, but the good news is they play 162 games. it is a long season, christina loren, plenty of time to get back ton right track. >> that's right. good morning to you. 57 degrees the to start in oakland. "today in the bay" works like this, about 95 degrees inland, 80 bay side, at the coast 68 degrees. looking pretty comfortable at your beaches today. i want to tell you about something that's really cool that usually doesn't happen here in the bay area.

metering lights to turn on. 880, we had slowing over the last half hour. north and southbound through downtown, crews should be just about cleared and the freeways are open. a smooth drive here as well as you head toward the san mateo and dumbarton bridges. the sensors not a problem. a quick look at the foster city side, a good volume of traffic westbound with the headlights, no slowing. low clouds as well. we're tracking those as well. back to you. it is 5:40 right now. b.a.r.t. contract talks are stalled this morning. when both sides could be back at the negotiating table once again. for the first time we're hearing from and seeing the women who were held captive in cleveland for ten years . we'll show you the video they released overnight.
