6:01 am
good friday morning to you and you as well. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm jon kelley. happening right now. they're towing away the wreckage at sfo piece by piece. this morning crews continue to take apart sections of asiana flight 214 which has been sitting on runway 28 left at sfo since crash landing on saturday. this has been an around-the-clock effort to try to clear the runway. >> we have new video overnight showing cranes and crewing tearing apart the wreckage and moving that debris to a remote section of the airport. right now the hope is to have the runway reopened and ready for flights by sunday. >> "today in the bay's" bob redell live in burlingame overlooking the runway we're talking about. hearing news this morning, we understand there was a small fire that broke out from that mek kaj today. >> reporter: there was. we have video of that. we'll show you that in a moment. first i want to show you what's happening right now. we're looking at roughly the northeast corner of sfo where,
6:02 am
as we push in, you can see the front part of the 777 asiana flight 214 slowly being hauled away to another site on property where it will be stored for at least a couple of weeks. that's what the airport is saying, until the airline figures out what it wants to do with that mek kaj. they will eventually be taking it off property, either for storage or for salvage. but it's been moved -- moving from the crash site for about the last 30 minutes. if you can't get a good perspective, the cranes are following it in the foreground and you've got it in the mid ground and it's making a turn right now. you can see both the wings are attached. =úñ they cut the pe apart just after the wings there. now, the video with the fire, it was the process of the cutting apart that ignited, we're guessing spilled jet fuel.
6:03 am
they were either using grinding equipment and/or blow torches to cut the plane apart. there was a large plume of smoke. that happened in the 3:00 hour this morning. the fire department was on site and were able to have it knocked down within just a couple of minutes. it didn't delay the salvage. it was an event, they had it knocked down and they resumed with the salvage operation. here is more video to give you a sense of what it takes to remove a plane of this size. clearly because it is a 777, a very large aircraft, it can't be removed in one piece. hence the reason it's been cut into at least two sections. from our vantage point right now, it's hard to tell if any of the wreckage is out at the end of the runway in the grassy strip of 28l. there are dumpsters blocking the view. they have the main part of the fuselage out. we believe there might be another smaller section out. this has been an around-the-clock salvage
6:04 am
operation for the simple fact that is,fo wants to get this runway back open as soon as possible. the plan is to have it open by sunday afternoon as you can imagine, when you're down a runway it affects air travel in terms of delays and cancellations. in order for them to make the sunday noon deadline that they imposed upon themselves, they obviously have to have the grassy area cleared of the wreckage, any spilled jet fuel has to be slurped up. the runway itself has to be repaired along with the seawall and navigational equipment. then what will happen is they'll test land an aircraft on 28l. if all goes according to plan, they hope to have the runway reopened by sunday afternoon. bob redell, "today in the bay." beyond the practical concerns of opening the runway, there are also so many emotional matters to attend to. today the san mateo county medical examiner says he'll meet with the family of one of the

including the toddler's mother as police search the martin luther king regional shoreline park mere the airport. they've searched that area twice. they say he sometimes took his daughter there to play. they also searched his apartment. the grandfather, kevin davis, just wants to bring daphne home. >> i know a lot of attention has been turned on him. we're not ignoring him. by the same token, it seems like a lot of the lichl light is turned to him and away from the baby. it was a bad move. hindsight is 20/20. just kind of hope everything works out, especially on his behalf. my daughter and he, they still love each other. they got a lot going on. they did talk, they have been communicating. >> reporter: little daphne weighs about 30 pounds and was wearing orange pajamas with pink hearts on them and pink socks. police also still looking into reports that a woman, possibly black or hispanic, 30 to 40 years old, may have been seen in the area carrying a child walking away. that child reportedly had

new this morning, crews have cleared the wreckage of asiana flight 214 from runway 28l at sfo. the wreckage has been sitting on the runway since crash landing on saturday. it's been an around-the-clock effort to clear the runway. we[g6s have new video from overnight showing smoke. that's right, smoke coming from the crash site. we're told it's from a small fire that was started by crews who were using blow torches to take apart the wreckage. the good news here, nothing severe. fighters were able to put the flames out within minutes. the ntsb handed control of the runway over to sfo, but the investigation is far from over.
6:44 am
"today in the bay's" bob redell live in burlingame overlooking the runway. problem, the plane now towed off the runway. when do they have an idea of when it will officially reopen? >> good morning, laura and jon. the hope from airport sfo is to have runway1.ñ 28l reopened by sunday afternoon so flights can be resuming. we're not sure if there's any wreckage remainingwdñ because there's large dumpsters blocking our view. we know the core part of the airplane, the front part of the fuselage has been towed away. you can take a look at time lapse video. when i say the core part of the fuselage i'm talking about the nose -- allbvs! the way back tot behind the wings. it's a slow crawl of this massive piece of wreckage as it made its way past the other terminals. we believe is part in the northeast corner of the airport itself.
6:45 am
this wreckage on property here at sfo for one or two weeks. that's what the airport was telling us until asiana airlines figures out what it wants to do. presumably we know they will definitely be taking it off-site somewhere, whether that's for storage or salvage, that is still to be determined. so the main process right now for the airport is to clean up that grassy area where asiana flight 214 came to a rest when it crashed saturday morning, to remove any excess jet newefuel might still be there, fix the seawall and a piece of navigational equipment damaged during the crash. once that is done, the faa will test land an aircraft on the run%f#$p'd if they give the all clear and say it is safe, then that runway can reopen. sunday afternoon, as you're well
