6:00 pm
their stories. ryan. >> reporter: elizabeth, everyone who survived the crash has a story to tell. today we heard from the last crew member to get off the plane. as press conferences go, this one was brief and tough to watch. these flight attendants were heroes saturday. their first priority was helping passengers to safety. even heroes cry. the cabin manager spoke briefly through a translator. [ non-english language ] >> i hope for all the families who have suffered losses from this accident to recover as quickly as possible and they are all in my prayers. >> reporter: one of the passengers who survived, eugene rau, another and a airline attendant in action. >> flight attendants go back and forth between the aircraft and the safety zone and helping passengers, you know, too come
6:01 pm
to the safety zone. i feel bad just looking at her doing all that. so we, you know, feel that just went in and tried to help her. >> reporter: today we learned new details about the many hats the flight attendants wore. part rescue team, part firefighters. >> they were also fighting the fire as the evacuation went on. there wasn't fire in the cabin while the passengers -- most of the passengers were in there. but as the evacuation went on, the fire did continue and the flight attendants and the flight crew were involved in trying to fight the fire on the inside. >> reporter: but days after the tragedy it set in. not all the flight attendants were here at the press conference today. others are still recovering in the hospital. ryan takeo kpix 5. >> the chinese consul met with
6:02 pm
victims of the flight. he visited chinese passengers who were still in the hospital at sf general. he wished them well, of course, said the consulate general in san francisco will do whatever it can to help as they recover. and we are learning more about what it was like in the final moments of flight 214 as it crashed landed at sfo. kpix 5's len ramirez in south san francisco and the ntsb briefed us again on the very latest today. len, what did you learn? >> reporter: allen, much of what we learned today focused on the activities of the flight attendants right after the crash. we just heard there was some heroism but there was also some confusion, as well. in the aftermath of the crash of asiana flight 214, flight attendants did not immediately start an evacuation of passengers. ntsb investigators said flight attendants told them they weren't sure what they should do. >> after the aircraft came to a stop, the cabin manager who was seated in 1l asked the flight
6:03 pm
attendant seated with her in that area to go to the flight deck and ask the flight crew what to do. the specific interest was should we evacuate? should we begin an evacuation? >> reporter: the answer that came back from the pilots was, no. >> the flight crew told the flight attendant not to initiate an evacuation. they were communicating with the tower about the emergency. the lead or the cabin manager made an announcement over the p.a. for people to stay in their seats. >> reporter: but then the cabin manager saw fire. >> he sent the flight attendant who was sitting with him 2l up to the front of the cabin to let them know that there was fire and they needed to evacuate. the aircraft evacuation began after that. >> reporter: each pilot was inviewed for 4 hours and the two main pilots were well
6:04 pm
rested before the plane took off in korea. while they weren't confirming a cause investigators say the pilots were operating the plane in a combination of manual and automatic controls including the auto throttle which acts like a sort of cruise control for the airplane. >> the pilot said what he wants in different modes but then this is a responsibility to monitor that he is getting what he asked for. >> reporter: they also confirmed one new avenue of investigation that on final approach at about 500 feet the pilot may have been temporarily blinded by a bright flash of light. >> our investigators did interview the flying pilot. he did relay some of that information to our investigators. the question is, what could the flash of light have been in could it have been a laser? we don't know at this point what it could have been. >> reporter: the ntsb is also looking into why two of the evacuations slides malfunctioned opening toward
6:05 pm
the aircraft and trapping two flight attendants inside instead of opening outward so the people could use them to get out of the airplane. the ntsb is also ready to release runway 28 left where this accident happened back to sfo for clean-up and eventual re-opening. live in south san francisco, len ramirez, kpix 5. as you heard, there was a lot of talk today about airplane automation. but as kpix 5's linda yee explains, overreliance on technology can be deadly. le. >> in an airplane like the triple 7, we have very sophisticated automation. >> reporter: sophisticated enough that a plane can land itself. but some pilots rely on that automation more than others. >> well, there's a global tendency to use the automation on aircraft more and more. >> reporter: oscar garcia used to fly a 777 for a major asian carrier. >> that part of the world tends to have pilots who relied more on the automatics.
6:06 pm
>> reporter: that reliance on automated flying is less common among pilots in the united states. >> a lot of our pilots if they don't come out of the service where private pilots say they were to fly piper cubs and cessnas, they learn basic flying skills. they learn speed control on final what to do and what not -- it becomes instinctive. >> reporter: even with sophisticated technology, the most important equipment in the cockpit is still the flight crew. >> what we call crm, crew resource management. and this came out of some accidents where captains would not listen to their copilots or their flight engineers. >> reporter: august 6, 1997, korean air flight 801 is approaching guam. i junior officer told -- a junior officer told the pilot that the instrument landing system was off but the pilot insisted it was on. the plane crashed several miles short of the runway killing 228 people. >> let me be clear, the crew is
6:07 pm
required to maintain a safe aircraft. we have a flying pilot and we have two other pilots that are in the cockpit. >> somebody has to be paying attention. >> clear human factors, resource management, the ntsb and faa will look at it very carefully. >> reporter: this gas back to the culture of the -- this goes back to the culture of the cockpit. no matter what the instruments say, someone has to fly and for someone to speak up when something doesn't look right. that's what the ntsb is going to be looking for. >> linda, there really is no limit to what those computers can do, right? >> reporter: absolutely not. the planes can land themselves in zero visibility if necessary. but if something isn't working as expected, it's ultimately up to the craw to catch that problem. >> all right. linda yee, thank you. it could be days before crews clear the aftermath of flight 214 from the runway at sfo. kpix 5's john ramos shows us how bad it is for travelers at the airport right now. >> reporter: with one runway
6:08 pm
shut down, san francisco international airport is itself in a bit of a holding pattern. the faa's ground delay program is in effect and that means airlines are being limited in their number of inbound flights. >> it's specifically designed to avoid having aircraft circling overhead. instead, those aircraft wait at their origin destination to get in here. >> reporter: about 50 arriving flights have been canceled outright. and many others are experiencing an average 45- minute delay. and it's an evolving situation. betsy thought her flight from washington, d.c. was on time until she got to her seat. >> this was most unusual to actually get on the plane and to be told that there was a two- hour delay. i fly frequently and i think that's one -- this is one of the very few times that's happened to me. >> reporter: this person's parents arrived as first-time flyers and didn't know about the crash. she decided it was best to keep it that way.
6:09 pm
they don't know what happened? >> no, i didn't want them to freak out. >> reporter: but most people coming in can see the wreckage on the adjoining runway and it may be some time until it can be reopened. once investigators are finished and the wreckage is removed, the runway will have to be examined, repaired and recertified by the faa. could it be next week? >> we're hopeful it can be and we're going to work very hard. all the different agencies, we're going to work around the clock to get it back in service as quickly as possible. >> i just hope that it is removed soon. it's a terrible reminder and hard to believe that people escaped that alive. >> reporter: at san francisco international, john ramos kpix 5. >> now, as long as that ground delay program is in effect, the cancellations and the delays are going to continue. so if you are traveling, you should call your airline to see if the flight has been affected. a programming note for you, too. kpix 5 will present a special on the heroes of flight 214.
6:10 pm
the stories of the extraordinary actions of those who saved lives. that's tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. one of the five guys screamed, oh, my god, we're all dead. i started to be afraid and then was knocked out. >> he was sucked out of the plane back in the '70s. how this bay area man almost got killed right after surviving that deadly crash. >> the new span of the bay bridge would open in time after all if a top official gets his way. the proposed quick fix that caught everyone off guard today. >> picture from mount vaca, more of that onshore flow and temperatures dropping. find out how much more they will drop in my seven-day forecast coming up. >> and we are following some breaking news in the east bay. the search for an abducted 21- month-old girl. ,, i'm totally in love with the avocado on this sub.

6:13 pm
car parked outsi there's an intense search now in oakland for a missing 21- month-old girl. police say she was taken in a car, parked outside a convenience store. that store is at international boulevard and 79th avenue. the girl was reported missing at 11:00 this morning. our christin ayers is at the location where the search is taking place right now. christin. >> reporter: liz, an amber alert is issued. we just got some new information from oakland police right now. shortly they will be issuing a picture of the 21-month-old girl's father. his name is john webb. and police now say that they are looking at him as someone who they are trying to establish an actual timeline of when this child disappeared. they are not clear that the child did in fact disappear at 11 a.m. today. now, here's what john webb told authorities earlier. he actually told them that he had parked his car outside of a liquor store on 79th and international, walked across the street to go inside the store and was inside there for a couple of minutes. left the child in the car with
6:14 pm
a relative, his mother, we heard from witnesses who suffers from dementia. when he came out the child was gone. witnesses describe seeing a woman walking with the child who fit the little girl's description a short time later. here's what police told us earlier. >> investigators are talking with the father, the family has been very cooperative. we're following up on active leads to find out exactly what did happen. the father reports he came to the store with his 21-month-old little girl and a family member and when he came out of the store, the little girl was no longer inside the car. >> reporter: authorities using dogs and helicopters to search for 21-month-old daphne viola webb. she is african-american with short curly hair and brown eyes. she had on orange pajamas with pink hearts and socks. now authorities telling us that even though they believe she was abducted, it sounds like they may be second-guessing the
6:15 pm
story of the father who reported her missing putting his picture out and trying to establish a timeline of when this child did in fact disappear. liz? >> given that they are sort of uncertain about his story is he officially a suspect in the case yet or are they curious to know why things aren't adding up? >> reporter: at this point he is not a suspect. the police aren't saying that things don't add up. but they are saying they want his picture out there and they want to not last time that this community has seen this man with his child in the area. so certainly it sounds like there are some questions brewing. >> all right. christin ayers, thank you. we may not have to wait until december to see the opening of the new eastern span of the bay bridge. kpix 5's phil matier on a proposed temporary fix to get the span open by labor day weekend as they had originally planned. phil. >> reporter: that's right. and it came as quite a stunner today! here's the story. >> we can achieve that seismic safety within a month's time,
6:16 pm
okay? and we don't have to wait until december. >> reporter: that was professor seibel chair of the bay bridge's review committee saying there is a temporary fix to the bolt problem that would allow the span to open by labor day and they need to get working on it right now. >> we do not know when the next earthquake will occur. we have to assume that it can occur any day. >> reporter: it's called shimming and basically it means installing wedges into the bridge's bearings to hold them in place in case there's an earthquake. and they could hold them there until the complete saddle fix is completed come december. >> this is a very simple structural operation. the complete science for the shims has been done. the contractor has the designs in front of them and as soon as we shim these [ indiscernible ] we have still achieved the full
6:17 pm
seismic safety of the bridge. and we can achieve that seismic safety within a month's time. >> reporter: bridge officials, who had long been saying that a full fix was needed to open the bridge, were clearly caught off guard. >> and i do believe this idea merits further vetting. it's an idea -- it's a concept at this point that came up fairly late. >> not just the concept. it has been designed by the design team, has been approved by caltrans and passed on to the contractor so we are not just at a concept stage. >> i will tell you, candidly, that the book he held up and talked about as a design, that's the first i've heard of it. >> i don't want to wait any day longer than necessary because we can have an earthquake at any time and old bridge is not safe. >> reporter: well, it's going to take a couple of weeks at least to vet this idea, get it through some other experts and even work up how much it's
6:18 pm
going to cost and if it's engineering-ly feasible. it's a story with more twists than you can imagine. >> there's no date to open it and no date to announce a date. >> reporter: no. all we're talking about is possible fixes. what they said they didn't think they could get it done by labor day. they wouldn't say when they could get it done but now someone has walked in and said you can get it done. and that is changing the entire game plan. >> oy. all right. phil matier, thank you for the latest. now, paul, if they decide to open it in december, there could be some weather curveballs then too. >> they are not just moving a fubar years and saying, hey, it's -- a few barriers saying hey it's open, they need concrete, asphalt and dry weather. it's easier to get five dry days in september than december. something tells me a few more curveballs coming before that bridge is open. this is the western span of the bay bridge no controversy
