Asiana Airlines Plane Crash: Samsung Exec David Eun Tweets And Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg

Posted Jul 8, 2013

On Saturday, an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 airline crash-landed at the San Francisco international airport (SFO).  Many people took photos and tweeted about the incident.  Samsung executive David Eun was on the plane and tweeted about the incident when escaping from the wrecked plane (screenshot above).

Two Chinese teenagers died and 182 people were injured.  Around 305 people survived the accident.  Asiana Airlines flew from Seoul, South Korea and crashed at around 11:30AM Pacific Time (2:30PM Eastern Time) when approaching the airport.  The rear of the plane hit the runway on the way down and the roof of the plane tore off.

Eun’s current position at Samsung is executive vice president and Head of Open Innovation Center.  He used to work as the VP of Content Partnerships at Google and he was also the VP of Operations, Media, and Communications at Time Warner.

Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg shared her condolences.  She also mentioned in a Facebook status that she was supposed to be on that place too.  Fortunately, she changed her flight from Asiana to United.
