The senior pilot in the cockpit of Asiana flight 214 realised the plane was too low when it was flying at only 500ft (152m), an official has said.

The Boeing 777 crash-landed at the San Francisco airport on Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring 180.

Debbie Hersman the chair of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) revealed that two flight attendants who had been sitting at the back of the plane were ejected when the plane crashed and thrown onto the tarmac. They survived but were seriously injured.
