SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) - Families of three Chinese teens killed in the Asiana Flight 214 crash landing at San Francisco International Airport have hired lawyers.
The San Francisco Chronicle (http://tinyurl.com/n6xk79f ) reported Saturday that the Chinese families retained a New York firm to represent them. One of the victims, 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan, survived the July 6 crash only to be fatally struck by a San Francisco Fire Department rescue truck.
Lawyer Anthony Tarricone said Yuan was the family's only child. Yuan's relatives issued a statement through their attorneys Friday saying they were "devastated and heartbroken."
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating Yuan's death.
