SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The family of a teenage girl who was run over and killed by emergency vehicles after an Asiana Airlines crash landing at the San Francisco airport has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city, saying rescuers were reckless and poorly trained.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the family of 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan alleges that San Francisco firefighters and police responding to the crash failed on multiple fronts to rescue the teen.

The girl was laying on the ground near the wreckage of the July 2, 2013 crash when she was run over by two vehicles. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

A spokesman for the San Francisco city attorney declined comment.
