  •  I wonder where the two Chinese students (0+ / 0-)

    were sitting at the time of the crash? Something tells me that they may have been sitting in the back where the tail snapped off.

      I thought the two fatalities might have been flight attendants, whose seats are sometimes right in the back by the galley. But apparently not.

      The NTSB head said one of the things they do is a chart of where each person was sitting and what types of injuries they had -- to help them look at preventing injuries better, kind of like car crash test dummies info.

      •  According to NBC (0+ / 0-)

        the two victims were sitting very close to the back and were ejected when the tail section broke off. They were found on the tarmac.
