An Asiana Airlines jet crash landed at San Francisco International airport on Saturday, killing two people.

The Boeing 777 wide-body jet was inbound from the carrier’s base at Incheon airport in Seoul when it apparently scraped a seawall on approach skidded across the runway, breaking off the tail and later bursting into flames.

The flight was carrying more than 300 people; two Chinese nationals were found dead on the runway and the remainder managed to survive despite dozens of critical and serious injuries. In total, 181 people were rushed to hospital after the crash, although many others walked away largely unscathed.

The cause of the crash remains unclear and the airline has yet to issue a formal statement, although Boeing said in a press release that it was working with US and South Korean investigators to determine what happened.

Meanwhile, the incident has wreaked havoc on air travel around the US and beyond, as San Francisco airport was closed completely for the majority of the day on Saturday and flights remained suspended into Sunday.
