No Mechanical Failure in Crashed Plane, Says Asiana CEO

SAN FRANCISCO -- The CEO of Asiana Airlines on Sunday ruled out engine or mechanical problems in the crash of a Boeing 777 at San Francisco airport that killed two 16-year-old Chinese students and injured more than 180 people after it appeared to touch down tail-first short of the runway.

Officials from the National Transportation Safety Board said Sunday that the black boxes from the Boeing 777 had been recovered were already en route to Washington, D.C.

San Francisco mayor Edwin Lee said Saturday evening that all 291 passengers and 16 crew members aboard Asiana Flight 214 when it went down Saturday morning had been accounted for.
