An apology by the boss of South Korean airline Asiana to the parents of the two Chinese students killed in the San Francisco plane crash got a hostile response. Yoon Young-doo met them at Incheon airport as they travelled from Shanghai to the U.S. He offered an apology again at a later news conference. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) PRESIDENT AND CEO OF ASIANA AIRLINES YOON YOUNG-DOO SAYING: "I will make a sincere apology and visit the hospitals where our passengers are being treated. I'll be there in a show of repentance on behalf of Asiana Airlines." South Korea's President Park Geun-hye on Tuesday offered her condolences to the families of the victims and promised an inquiry. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREAN PRESIDENT PARK GEUN-HYE SAYING: "The cause of this accident should be clarified in detail and I want everyone to do their best to ensure that there will be no more safety problems in the future." More than 180 other people were injured when the Boeing 777 crashed as it came in to land on Saturday. The last person to leave the wreckage was Asiana flight attendant Lee Yoon-hye, hailed a heroine for helping passengers to escape. (SOUNDBITE)(Korean) LEE YOON-HYE, FLIGHT ATTENDANT, SAYING: "My brain was very clear and I planned what had to do immediately. Actually I wasn't thinking but acting. As soon as I heard 'emergency escape' I started the evacuation. When the fire started I was just thinking how to put it out, not that it's too dangerous or 'what am I going to do?'" U.S. investigators say the plane was flying dangerously slowly and a stall warning had sounded seconds before the crash. The four pilots on board have been questioned about their actions.
