Shared a tweet from David Eun, passenger on board this flight:

Sonia Mendoza Praying for all that were on that plane!

Everything South City Hey David Valencia no worries, thank you so much for keeping us up to date with what you hear/see up close. It is appreciated. – ESC
Raleigh Gonzales are they sending people home Dave?
Kay Belongia Praying for those involved
David Valencia Nope. For now only late grave in mandoed for 2hrs. But everything is all on hold.
Johnny Wad Goldthwaite Early reports that the plane landed too perpendicular and tail hit runway causing plane to tumble…this is speculation only but this plane is split apart for sure.
Jeannette Valencia We saw the smoke when it just happened
Chauntel Gregor Oseguera We are stuck on freeway. It is so surreal, so many emergency vehicles.
David Valencia Yea I’m working now. Everything is all on hold for now. They deboarded the plane and passengers are passing through customs as it was an international inbound.
Carla Barbetti David Valencia were there fatalities?
Carla Barbetti Im believe the news is reporting wrong , eye witness is reporting only 10-15 people with injuries and no fatalities
Carla Barbetti Channel 2 was reporting without knowing terrible!!!
Everything South City: Initial reports are not always accurate because more information continues to come in.
David Valencia We can only pray because the damage to the plane is pretty bad.
Dan Anchick Thanks ESC for informing me initially about this. I didn’t know what was going on.
Then I used my brain and took bits of information from other sources and people to understand what’s happening.
Johnny Wad Goldthwaite 2 confirmed dead, 61 injured per San Francisco Fire Depaerment. 13 injured to SF hospitals, 48 injured to San Mateo County hospitals
