SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco General Hospital is treating 27 people who were injured in the Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco International Airport, a hospital spokeswoman said Saturday.

The hospital first received an initial "wave" of 10 patients, all of them in critical condition, hospital spokeswoman Rachel Kagan said.

In that initial group, eight were adults ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s, and two were children. All 10 were Korean speaking, and the hospital has interpreters and Korean-speaking staff on hand to assist them, Kagan said.
