SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Survivors of the Asiana flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport have returned to the wreckage site.

Passenger Ben Levy says about 30 survivors and 30 family members visited the site on Wednesday in three buses that left from the hotel where many of them are staying.

They were kept about 50 yards away from the wreckage, which is surrounded by metal railing.

Levy says some people cried while others appeared to be in disbelief.

He says he went to the site to meet other passengers and share stories about how they got off the plane and how they are feeling.

The Boeing 777 crashed on Saturday while approaching a runway too low and too slow and hit a rock seawall.

Two of the 307 passengers and crew were killed.
