I'm season look for you now -- learning.
We have clause that jet to crash land in San Francisco the pilot of the plane.
Was in training had never landed a triple seven jet at that airport before.
Adam Housley joins us live from San Francisco international now with the very latest learned more and more as each hour goes by -- Adam.
Yeah we are -- -- get a plane was basically flying too low and too slow but it's still too early according to the NTSB.
To blame it on pilot error is obvious are -- looking at very closely.
Was it that was an accommodation potentially have also -- some sort of mechanical failure but what they can tell us too low and too slow.
That's why this plane came down the way it did the video we're seeing to some new video in showing people jumping on to those slides and down.
I escaping the plane and of course a -- the plane.
Gone -- more details -- what happened inside.
From somebody a flight attendants who were there talking about how one of the slides actually opened up inside the plane they had to use an ax to deflated.
As to -- that -- of the tennis.
Into the ground.
Others talking about how they had to cut off seat -- to get people out.
Just quite a remarkable story when you think about it how many people actually made it off the plane of course we do know that two people were killed 216 year old girls and there may be an update today.
On one of those girls there have been reports of course of one of -- provide emergency vehicle.
But we may hear from the corner today talking about that as well I in TSB -- -- wrap -- up here for you -- -- NTSB is also going to be talking to some of the -- today we're told.
They have a Horry talked a couple of the -- witnesses and -- passengers today.
They're gonna start talking with the crew as they map this whole thing out and of course the voice recorders are in DC and they hope to have some of that information as well.
Thank you guys in the.
Your all right Adam thank you very much by the way the NTSB chair Deborah and harassment is going to join us live in just couple minutes with new information from San Francisco.
Meanwhile as people.
For some of the blame.
You know losses so who could possibly be held responsible.
And for what -- right now is Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior.
Good morning and welcome back.
Yeah we heard Adam -- talking about too -- too slow elements four lawsuits unfortunate for claims against.
Various parties we don't know the true cause of what brought this airliner down so potentially of the airliner and its pilots.
But also bowling in 2008.
There was a crash Heathrow airport in Great Britain where the plane landed too early.
Touched the edge of the runway.
And resulted in some injuries not obviously come in in -- that was because of ice in a fuel -- different type of engines here.
Then that particular.
But as well we're hearing about the potential for pilot there were also hearing and Adam -- pointed to it this is quite -- -- that at least two.
According to one wire service reports at least -- Of the those slides open inside of the plane not.
Outside so didn't deployed to the ground -- deployed inside in fact allegedly trapping.
One of the flight attendants and it took an -- to cut the the that it it away -- antifreeze electricity that you had to bring that up because when we've looked at the aerial shots it's like wire that's where the slides all off on the left side enough and on the other side and now.
If that is true and apparently it is the slides open inside that sounds like -- some sort of malfunction.
I mean that is a product liability claim that could be brought that goes it to defective equipment it goes to faulty design he goes to structural problems.
With a 777.
Then -- -- -- a common negligence claim.
Pilot error or some other human mistake that may have occurred that -- was this airliner to go -- We've also heard about unfortunately it appears one of the sixteen year old victims may have been run over -- a response vehicle.
But clearly that's tied back.
To either the airline's failure.
Or two the airliners food that Boeing company's failures if there any we don't know we won't know -- for a while.
But when you -- here about it too low.
Too slow almost going in in into that bay and -- eyewitness reports that we've heard about the miraculously.
Nature of what occurred and what occurred in Kansas so of the flight attendants there was one flight attendant who was the last person.
And heroic it -- and had a broken tail bone.
As well but didn't know what and continued to fight -- people's lives on on these planes.
These are lawsuits that will be settled there are technical niceties in terms of international conventions and treaties and like that.
But -- obviously these are claims.
That will be resolved it's more interesting to know.
Whether in fact there -- -- the product issues here and we hope not I'm sure we're gonna take discipline in the world there you go the sentences since Peter Johnson junior thank you it is you -- thank you.
