SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The name of a girl who died of injuries suffered in the crash-landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco recently has emerged early Saturday.

Chinese state media have identified her as Liu Yipeng (LEE'-ow EE'-peng). China News says she went to school with the other two victims killed in the crash. They were both 16.

Liu Yipeng's name was first reported in the U.S. by KGO-TV in San Francisco.

She died Friday morning at San Francisco General Hospital where she had been in critical condition since the July 6 accident.

On Chinese social media sites, friends and strangers have left condolences and lit virtual candles on what is believed to be her micro blog.
