    Ye's body was found near Flight 214's left wing, not far from one of the inflatable slides that several passengers used to escape from the plane. Ye, however, was sitting in the back of the plane, near where the tail broke off on landing, and would have been able to get out that way. One of the unanswered questions about her death is how she ended up by the wing.
    Spraying foam

    Police investigators said Friday that an airport fire rig that ran over Ye apparently hit her after all the passengers had been evacuated. The rig was spraying foam on the fire and was repositioning to get a better angle when Ye was struck, they said.
    "It wasn't going that fast," said Officer Gordon Shyy, a police spokesman. "When the firefighters repositioning the truck stopped, they realized there was a deceased person on the ground. She was lying down, covered in foam. They marked it, continued on to fighting the fire and notified the command chain there was a deceased person there."
    San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault, whose office performed an autopsy, said Ye had suffered extensive crushing injuries, but does not appear to have been thrown from the airplane at the time of the crash. His investigators have not determined what killed her."
