SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The victims of the Asiana Airlines crash are being remembered with a memorial service south of San Francisco.
A spokesman for Mayor Ed Lee says he attended Wednesday's private service in Colma for the three Chinese girls who died.
No further details were provided.
KGO-TV reports that the parents of the girls spoke at the service. The Chinese consul general also attended.
The girls were killed when a Boeing 777 crash-landed after approaching a San Francisco International Airport runway too low and too slow on July 6.
One of the girls was thrown out the back of the plane, a second died days later from her injuries, and a third was struck and killed by a fire vehicle rushing to fight a blaze that broke out on the plan
