Asia B777. Waiting on more details.

Reports indicate emergency landing declared.  - This is unconfirmed.

Fantastic work by ATC clearing the airspace.

Latest (unconfirmed) is that the plane came in too low and hit the sea wall, tearing off the tail section.  Then the rest hit the runway hard, smashing the landing gear

Now reports of 2 fatalities and 60+ injured.  Multiple burn injuries.
And of course, an exasperated Ex-United pilot wondering why people stopped to grab their carry on baggage.
The clip posted on here only starts after the Asiana 214 pilot declares his emergency on the ground---
Sounds like everything was just going to be a normal day until suddenly it wasn't.

Debris field starts at the seawall; random guess? He was flaring and held the nose too high on a low approach, pushed the tail into the rocks, ripped the back end of the aircraft off.

Emergency services repeated ALL occupants have been accounted for in response to media reports that two people have been killed and said, these reports are untrue. A number of people were taken to hospitals with injuries of varying degrees.

Aviation Herald have backtracked on that, after the FAA press conference and the Fire Chief categorically reporting two confirmed fatalities. 28 people in hospital, 67 unaccounted for.

EDIT: further backtrack, only one person unaccounted for now.

Commendable job by all concerned. Thoughts are with the fallen.

It is unclear to me from the youtube link if the pilot had declared an emergency prior to landing.

Here is something that I have not heard in the news AT ALL.  If you listen to the ATC tapes a few minutes prior to the incident, there are reports from pilots to the tower of three people walking around the water's edge between RWY 28L and RWY 28R.  I hope this accident wasn't a result of terrorist activity!  The recording is not found on the widely available accident audio clip.  This portion of the recording, can, however, be found on this website in the archives, and is on the tape at around 25-27 minutes past the hour, and is shortly before the United pilot requested about a 2 minute delay on his departure.  Sorry, I don't remember the exact time, but you can find it.
