Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White says at a news conference outside San Francisco General Hospital Sunday the two 16-year-old girls who died were found on either side of the plane near the “front middle.”
Investigators are determining whether they were alive or dead when rescuers reached the scene.
Hayes-White says first responders told her they saw people at the edge of the bay dousing themselves with water, possibly to cool burn injuries.
The Asiana Airlines plane crashed while it was landing Saturday. Dozens of people were also injured.
