  • BREAKING: The FAA confirms a Boeing 777 operated by Asiana Airlines crashed while landing Saturday at the San Francisco International Airport. News 96.5 is following this breaking news story on-air and online. Watch live video of the crash Read the story (this page will be updated continuously)   At least two people were killed Saturday when an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 crashed and burst into flames while landing at San Francisco International Airport, a fire department source told KTVU. It was not known how many passengers have survived the crash, but victims were being taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment. Firefighters and emergency crews from San Francisco, Redwood City, San Mateo responded to the airport and dosed the burning plane with foam to extinguished the fully engulfed aircraft. Meanwhile, officials have closed all access to the airport and arriving flights were being diverted to nearby Oakland International . Flight 214 from Seoul was on direct flight and was landing onto runway 28 at around 11:30 a.m. According to a witness, the plane was just about to land -- its landing gear had come down -- when the tail of the plane came off. After wobbling for a minute, it appeared that the aircraft flipped upside down, coming to a stop on runway on it's back, according to witness Kathy Muhler. Chopper footage from over the crash showed that the wings were still attached, contradicting the possibility that it rolled over on its back. When it came to a halt, smoke was pouring from the aircraft. Fire crews responded minutes later, Muhler said. According to Redwood City Fire Department, three alarms have been called and responding crews are reporting passengers in need of burn treatment. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced it was sending a team of investigators to San Francisco to determine the cause of crash. The team will be lead NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman. As of noon, all flights into SFO were canceled because of the crash and all roads to the aiport were closed -- CHP suggested drivers avoid Hwy 101 and use I-280 instead. It was unclear when SFO would be re-opened. According to his Twitter feed, David Eun, the executive vice president of Samsung, was on the flight when it crashed. 'I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I'm ok. Surreal...' tweeted Eun minutes after noon Saturday. The 777-200 is a long-range plane from Boeing. The twin-engine aircraft is one of the world's most popular long-distance planes, often used for flights of 12 hours or more, from one continent to another. The airline's website says its 777s can carry between 246 to 300 passengers. The last time a large U.S. airline lost a plane in a fatal crash was an American Airlines Airbus A300 taking off from JFK in 2001. Smaller airlines have had crashes since then. The last fatal U.S. crash was a Continental Express flight operated by Colgan Air, which crashed into a house near Buffalo, N.Y. on Feb. 12, 2009. The crash killed all 49 people on board and one man in a house.
  • UPDATE: A massive brush fire near the Volusia/Flagler county line is estimated at 1,100 acres and remains 75 percent contained. Evacuation orders have been lifted for all.  Winds are blowing between 15 and 20 mph on Sunday. Volusia County officials say those conditions 'could spread the fire and hamper firefighting efforts.'  130 firefighters from Volusia and Flagler counties are battling the flames.  The Florida Fire service is widening the cut lines to 20-30 feet to let the brush trucks travel closer to the flames. Local residents are urged to give emergency crews the right-of-way. At the height of the fire, 300 homes were evacuated and a portion of I-95 near Ormond Beach was closed due to smoke concerns.

The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • The City of Winter Park is taking delivery on Friday of a new holiday tree, after retiring the tree donated almost 30 years ago by former WFTV news anchor Bob Opsahl.  The new 20-foot southern red cedar was found in a nursery in north central Florida and will be delivered by crane to Central Park, according to Clarissa Howard with the city’s communications department. The aging tree took some hits from a microburst last July, and then Hurricane Irma, but was lit for the final time this past holiday season. It is balding at the top now and has some gaps inside the base that forced the city to add some metal framing to the tree in order to decorate it properly, said Howard.  Although retired, it will remain in the southern part of the park near the Rose Garden to enjoy.
  • A California man is accused of shooting and killing his mother after becoming upset over a video game he was playing, police officials said.  Matthew Douglas Nicholson, 28, of Ceres, is charged with murder and making a criminal threat, according to records from the Stanislaus County Jail. He is being held without bail.  Officials with the Ceres Police Department reported that officers were called to Nicholson’s parents’ home shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday after his father called 911 to report the shooting. Nicholson’s mother, Lydia Susanne Nicholson, had been shot in the head. The 68-year-old woman died of her injuries at a hospital.  >> Read more trending news Detectives determined that Matthew Nicholson was in his bedroom, playing video games, when he became enraged over the game he was playing and started yelling, police officials said. His mother went into his room to check on him, and the pair began arguing.  Nicholson broke his game headset during the argument and blamed his mother, officials said. Threatening to kill his mother and father, he retrieved a handgun, police officials said. After firing two shots into a wall, Nicholson turned the gun on his mother, according to investigators.  He also tried to shoot his father, Loren Nicholson, who wrestled the gun away from him, a Ceres Police Department news release said. The 81-year-old was not injured in the scuffle.  “I understand that he would’ve killed the father, too, but the gun jammed,” a family friend told Fox 40 in Sacramento. “The father grabbed the gun (and) emptied it.” Matthew Nicholson fled and headed to his sister’s home, in nearby Riverbank, police officials said. Officers there located the vehicle he was driving and conducted a high-risk traffic stop. Nicholson was taken into custody without incident, the news release said.    His sister described their mother as a wonderful person who loved her children and husband of 32 years. Lydia Nicholson worked in the local school system, Autumn Nicholson told Fox 40.  “(She) had so much compassion for people and just wanted to see the best in people at all times,” she said. 
  • A teenager who was diagnosed last month with strep throat is recovering after family members said the bacteria behind the illness got into the girl’s bloodstream, causing septic shock. >> Read more trending news Jennifer Phillips, the mother of 16-year-old Alexis Patton, told WAND that her daughter started to feel sick on Dec. 21. “I took her (to the hospital) that next day, Friday, and then by Monday evening, she was intubated on life support,” Phillips said. She told the news station that doctors determined that the bacteria that causes strep throat, streptococcus, got into Alexis’s bloodstream and settled in her legs. In a GoFundMe account started to help support the family through Alexis’s illness, family friends said Alexis went into septic shock because of the bacteria and had to be put on a ventilator. “It’s been really hard — the traveling back and forth, the sleepless nights at the hospital over and over. It’s been really rough,” Phillips told WAND last week. “She’s going to have to have a lot of surgeries, a lot of skin grafts and (she will have to) learn how to walk again.” Family members said on a Facebook page dedicated to updating people on Alexis’s condition that the 16-year-old underwent multiple surgeries. Doctors told her family on Friday that her infection was resolved just over three weeks after she was first hospitalized. Family members on Sunday posted a video of Alexis as she continued her recovery. Phillips warned parents to take their children in to the doctor’s office as soon as they feel ill in light of her daughter’s illness. “Don’t wait to take your kids in,” she told WAND. “Even if they just have common cold/flu symptoms, make sure they’re getting checked.”
  • Update 1:20 p.m. Jan. 16: Officials said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon that the 13 siblings taken from a California home after they were held captive by their parents for an undisclosed period of time are recovering. The siblings, who range in age from 2 to 29, were in stable condition Tuesday. “They’re very friendly, they’re very cooperative and I believe that they’re hopeful that life will get better for them after this event,” said Mark Uffer, CEO of the Corona Regional Medical Center. Riverside County Sheriff's Department Capt. Greg Fellows said Louise Anna Turpin, the mother of the children, was “perplexed” when police arrived at the family’s home Sunday. Authorities said they had received no prior calls to the house and said there were no early indications that either Linda Anna Turpin or her husband, 57-year-old David Allen Turpin, had any history of mental illness. Original report: A California couple was arrested Sunday after 13 siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29, were allegedly held captive in a home, with several children “shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings,” the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said Monday. >> Read more trending news In a news release, the Sheriff’s Department said David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested and charged with torture and child endangerment. Bail was set at $9 million apiece, according to the news release. Early Sunday, a 17-year-old called 911 and said she had escaped from her residence in Perris, according to the Sheriff’s Department. The teenager claimed that her 12 brothers and sisters were “being held captive” in the residence by her parents.  When deputies met with the teen, she “appeared to be only 10 years old and slightly emaciated.” Deputies went to the residence and said they were “shocked” to find the teen’s 12 siblings, seven of whom were adults ranging in age from 18 to 29. All of them appeared to be “malnourished and very dirty,” according to the release. The parents were subsequently arrested, deputies said. The six children, including the teen who escaped, were taken to a hospital in Moreno Valley for treatment, deputies said. The adults were being treated at a hospital in Corona. David Turpin’s parents, James and Betty Turpin of West Virginia, told ABC News they were surprised and shocked at the allegations, KABC reported. According to the California Department of Education website, David Turpin is listed as principal of the Sandcastle Day School, which was operated out of his home. The address listed for the school is the same residence where the 13 victims were discovered, CNN reported. The school opened March 21, 2011, according to the website, and was categorized as a private school for students in grades one through 12.
