flight 214 as their families arrive at the hotel where they're staying. the wreckage from the deadly plane crash remains on runway 28l. we give you a live look at investigators discover how far the debris spread when it fell from the sky saturday morning. >> good morning and thanks for joining us on this tuesday morning. 6:00. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm jon kelley. good morning everyone. we can tell you some of the youngest survivors of the asiana crash back with their families. >> families arrived overnight and were shuttled to the crown plaza hotel where the students are staying. that's where "today in the bay's" christie smith is now. >> reporter: good morning, laura and jon. for these families, this had to be the longest flight of their entire lives, many of them brought here to be reunited with loved ones, survivors of that
6:01 am
crash. for two other families, a much more grim task waiting for grim information expected a little later today. they're staying here at the crown plaza hotel after making the trip from china. the family of the two 16-year-old girls who died on asiana flight 214 learning of another layer to this investigation. ye mengyuan and wang linjia were seated in the back of the plane when it crash landed saturday at sfo, and there are questions about whether one of those girls may have been hit and killed by a responding fire rig that day. some of the family members took a connecting flight from los angeles to sfo overnight and then board add shuttle bus and were escorted to a hotel in burlingame. one passenger on the very same flight says it was handled in a rather unusual way. >> rather than let everyone off the plane as they would normally do, they said that they were letting off a few different people like earlier. everyone stayed on the plane for a few extra minutes and a few people, i guess, got off on a
6:02 am
stairway or ladder or something. i didn't really know what was going on at the time. i just was kind of like chilling. i guess they were related to the people who died in the plane crash. >> reporter: the two girls who died came from china and planned to visit places like google and stanford and attend a camp in southern california while learning all about u.s. culture. parents are expected to meet with a coroner in san mateo county who says he won't release autopsy results for two to three weeks. that would shed light on whether one of the girls did die as a result of being hit by a fire rig. he's saying he wants to wait until an investigation is complete. live in burlingame, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> christie, thank you very much. we have new video from south korea where the president and ceo of asiana airlines met the families of the two girls who died as they left for the
6:03 am
airport. the father of one of the teens was screaming right in the president's face. right now the airline executive is on a flight to san francisco. he did speak before leaving south korea this morning saying he's planning to visit pass sxwrers from asiana flight 214 and offer what he is calling a sincere apology. the airline president is flying the very same route as asiana flight 214 to get to san francisco. he's expected to arrive today at about noon. before the asiana chief boarded that flight for america, he admitted something needs to be done to prevent a similar crash from ever happening again. "today in the bay's" bob redell live in burlingame with plans to make pilots better prepared. good morning, bob. >> reporter: yes, the chief of asiana airlines did say before boarding that flight that they need to beef up their training, specifically their simulator time.
6:04 am
this comes up because the pilot who is behind the controls of asiana flight 214 when it crashed here saturday morning had only 43 hours of flying time in a boeing 777 which you can see right now is destroyed on the edge of the runway here at sfo. we've spoken with the ntsb this morning. they told us they did speak, interviewed two of the four pilots yesterday. their plan is to interview the other two either this morning or later this afternoon including the pilot who was at the controls of that flight saturday morning. the idea is that by conducting these interviews, they can glean the kind of information that they cannot get from the cockpit voice data recorder. >> those interviews are very helpful to us. we want to make sure we understand what the crew was doing, why they were doing it, what their perceptions are, what they think the required procedures are, how the
6:05 am
automation works. >> reporter: they'll try to figure out answers to questions like why, if this pilot who never landed in a 777 at sfo, why didn't his copilot who was experienced with the aircraft take over, and if he did, why did the plane crash? about 1:12 before impact auto pilot was disengaged. 34 seconds later the plane was at 500 feet, 134 knots. you might recall you need 137 knots of airspeed. that's the minimum required for a safe landing. it now takes another 28 seconds before the crew tries to correct, realizing they're going too low and slow and eight seconds before impact, only traveling at a speed of 112 knots. just before the impact, they did try to abort the landing by throttling up, pulling up on the nose but that did not do the trick. the airplane crashed, caught fire, killing two people and injuring many more. the investigators plan to speak
6:06 am
with the pilot who was behind the controls of the aircraft today. they have a news conference scheduled for some time late they are afternoon where they tell us they do plan to share what they learn from that interview with the rest of the world. live in burlingame across from sfo, bob redell, "today in the bay." if you'd like to get involved and help out here, stanford's blood center calling for more dough naxs to replenish its supply after that crash. the center says there is an urgent need for type o positive and o negative blood. 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. if you'd like to donate, please call the center to schedule an appointment. stay with "today in the bay" all morning long. we'll have live updates from the hotel in burlingame where the families of some of the people on asiana flight 214 are staying, plus the latest word on

the investigation from the ntsb. as always, you can get the latest details on our website, for the very first time we're hearing from the three women who were held captive inside a cleveland home for a decade, a home they called the house of horrors. overnight, the trio releasing a video on youtube to thank the public for all their support. "today in the bay's" marla tellez in our newsroom with a look at what's nothing short of captivating video. >> if it's not already, it's likely going to be the most popular video on youtube today. the video is short, it's 3:30. it's simple yet extremely powerful. it starts with amanda berry who initiated the escape from ariel castro's home. she has a 6-year-old daughter with him. >> i want to thank everyone who has help me and my family through this entire ordeal, everyone who has been here to support us, it's been a blessing to have such an outpouring of love and kind nsz.
6:08 am
>> what stands out is not how the girls sound, but also how they look. clearly they've gotten makeovers. gina dejesus and michelle knight had long hair. keep in mind knight is said to have hearing problems from being beaten so badly by castro. >> we have been hurt by people, but we need to rely on god as being the judge. god has a plan for all of us, a plan that he gave me was to help others that have been in the same situations i have been in. >> reporter: knight is also the one castro allegedly punched her in the stomach so hard forcing her to miscarry on more than one occasion. gina dejesus saying just one sentence, thank you for your support. castro is pleading not guilty to a slew of kidnapping and rape charges. you can logon to

6:11 am
between the cars. that's better news. folks are traveling below the speed limit because visibility is a problem at times. look at the maps, you see a smooth flow. it is slow from richmond to berkeley heading towards treasure island on the upper deck. fog may be an issue. so plan for that. things are smoothed out on 580, into the upper 40s heading north on 238. that's pretty typical on a tuesday, maybe lighter than we often see. but it's the summertime. 84 starting to build, towards 680 through livermore, that's the build for the tri-valley. a look at the peninsula, not a problem for 101 or 280. back to you. >> 6:11 right now. coming up, egypt in turmoil. more than 50 people dead allegedly at the hands of the country's military. we'll let you know how protesters are responding this morning. closer to home, a warning

6:46 am
