San Francisco's fire chief says authorities have accounted for all the passengers and crew members who were about the jetliner that crashed at San Francisco International Airport.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said that as of Saturday evening the more than 300 people who were aboard Asiana Flight 411 had been located at either hospitals or the airport.

According to officials, 49 passengers were seriously injured, 132 received moderate to minor injuries, 123 were not injured and two were killed. The injuries include burns, fractures and internal injuries.

Asiana Arlines said there was a total of 291 passengers and 16 cabin crew aboard. The majority of the passengers were comprised of 77 Korean citizens, 141 Chinese citizens, 61 US citizens, 1 Japanese citizen.

Meanwhile, the FBI said there was no evidence that an act of terrorism was involved in the crash.

According to a witness around 11:20 a.m., the plane was just about to land -- its landing gear had come down -- when the tail of the plane came off.

After wobbling for a minute, the aircraft flipped upside down, coming to a stop on runway on it's back, according to witness Kathy Muhler.

When it came to a halt, smoke was pouring from the aircraft. Fire crews responded minutes later, Muhler said.

The plane, reportedly a Boeing 777, was identified as Asiana 214 and was coming from South Korea, according to flight tracking information.

Officials closed all access to the airport for several hours and arriving flights were being diverted to nearby Oakland International and airports throughout the West including Salt Lake City. Two of the four runways at the busy airport were re-opened by 3:30 p.m. PCT.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
