Four passengers injured in SFO plane crash remain in critical condition

Four Asiana Airlines Flight 214 passengers remained in critical condition Wednesday at the Bay Area hospitals that took in the majority of patients after the plane crash Saturday.

At San Francisco General Hospital, there are three critical patients, including one juvenile, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.

They have a range of injuries including spinal cord problems, brain trauma, abdominal injuries, internal bleeding, road rash and fractures.

One adult had been upgraded from critical to serious condition since Tuesday. Five others are at the hospital in serious to good condition, Kagan said.

A total of 66 patients were transported to General Hospital in the wake of the crash. Of those, 31 were juveniles, Kagan said.

Stanford Hospital received 55 patients, seven of whom were minors taken to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, according to spokesman James Larkin. The juveniles were all released Sunday evening.

By Wednesday morning, four patients were still at Stanford Hospital and one was in critical but stable condition. Two others were in good condition, and one patient is in fair condition.

Mills-Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame took in 29 patients after the crash. Of that group, five were admitted to the hospital and three remain there in stable condition, spokeswoman Margie O'Clair said.

No juveniles were seen at the hospital, and the hospital did not treat any critically injured patients.

O'Clair said patients with the most serious injuries were taken to Stanford Hospital and San Francisco General.

Nine patients from the crash were transported to three California Pacific Medical Center campuses Saturday, CPMC spokesman Dean Fryer said. Three adults remain hospitalized in good condition, he said.

Two juveniles brought to CPMC hospitals were released Saturday, Fryer said.

In The City, St. Mary's Medical Center treated five patients and St. Francis Memorial Hospital treated seven. Each hospital has one remaining patient, both of whom are in stable condition.
