305 of 307 passengers miraculously survived the Asiana accident thanks to the help of the flight attendants (who have been cited for their extreme professionalism during the evacuation), as well as the emergency first responders. Safety authorities are now hard at work trying to determine the exact factors that caused the accident so that we can try to prevent a similar occurrence in the future…while the lawyers, insurers, and bankers are playing their roles as well. As they should, these stories tend to take a backseat to the reports of heroism, survival, the investigation, and future prevention and safety initiatives.
