SAN FRANCISCO -- The third teenager who died from injuries suffered in the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 attended the same school as the other two Chinese students killed in the accident, according to Chinese news outlets that identified the latest victim Saturday as 15-year-old Liu Yipeng.
The girls all lived in East China's Zhejiang province, according to the English-language China Daily. They were traveling with the same group of 35 students who planned to attend an academic summer camp in Los Angeles.
Liu Yipeng died Friday at San Francisco General Hospital after suffering severe head injuries in the July 6 crash. On Saturday, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault confirmed her identity and told this newspaper that the exact cause of her death had not yet been determined.
The 15-year-old was still in her seat when rescuers found her in the wreckage of the downed plane, The Associated Press said.
Authorities had previously identified the other two victims as Ye Mengyuan and Wang Linjia, both 16. Officials said Ye Mengyuan was run over by a fire truck racing to the crash scene. The AP reported she may have been covered in flame-retardant foam that had been sprayed around the wreckage by emergency workers, although it's still not clear if she was alive at that point.
Wang Linjia was among passengers who may have been thrown from the plane. The AP said Saturday that she apparently didn't receive medical help immediately because rescuers didn't spot her body until 14 minutes after the crash.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash, but they have cleared the wreckage of the crashed Boeing 777 from Runway 28L at San Francisco International Airport.
Liu Yipeng's parents had traveled to San Francisco after the crash, arriving earlier this week before she died, the China Daily said.
Six other passengers were still being treated Saturday at San Francisco General Hospital. A spokeswoman said two were in critical condition. One other passenger remained in serious condition at Stanford Hospital.
