began evacuating. two minutes after the crash, the first emergency responders arrived. and three minutes later, firefighters began spraying foam on the wreckage. >> the aircraft has different seating arrangements. take a look. business class on the left side of your screen was one seat at the window, two in the middle, and one at the other window. travel class, which is the economy section, is on the right side of your screen. it was three seats on the left side, three in the middle, three on the right. now take a look at this diagram from the ntsb. there were eight exit doors, four on each side. they're labeled one to four on the left and one to four on the right. of the four, flight attendants in the back of the plane sitting near 4l and 4r, three were ejected. all four remain hospitalized. >> we also got a clearer picture of several moments when the pilots knew they were not
on the proper descent path. at 4,000 feet, the pilots knew they were too high and they adjusted. on the approach at 500 feet, they were too low. that was 34 seconds prior to the crash, enough time authorities say to correct their approach. but that did not happen. some of the flight attendants appeared today together in public for the first time. our julie haener is here now with the brief but very emotional news conference. julie? >> reporter: ken, the toll of the crash and the terrifying moments that followed were visible on their faces. six members of the cabin crew were scheduled today to talk about their experience last saturday. but when the time came, it was just too much. one flight attendant appeared in a wheelchair. some were holding hands as they walked by a throng of reporters. through an interpreter, the cabin manager offered prayers for those killed and for the survivors. and she said the crew is also
struggling to get through this ordeal. >> asiana flight 214 and -- asiana airlines and all the flight attendants are working as hard as possible in order to recover from this accident. >> the interpreter then informed reporters the crew was feeling overwhelmed and would not be making any more statements. the six then appeared together, their heads bowed. at least two of them breaking down in tears. the ntsb said six other members of the crew remain hospitalized tonight. clearly, they are all still visibly shaken by what has happened. investigators once again hailed the attendants of flight 214 for their heroic efforts to evacuate all the passengers and fight the fire. >> with only three of the four runways in operation at sfo, flight delays and cancellations are continuing today. the airport reported the cancellation of 42 flights this
