Early on Saturday afternoon Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash landed at the san Francisco International Airport resulting in the death of two people and possibly 60 unaccounted for, reports state.

Originating in Shanghai, China, the flight stopped at Seoul, South Korea before heading to California laden with 291 passengers and at least 16 crew member, according to ABC.

Of the passengers, 130 were moved to area hospitals with San Francisco General reporting that they currently had 10 of the critically injured passengers, reports CBS.

Eyewitnesses report that the plane approached the runway at an odd angle.

"It was tilted too far back," said Stephanie Turner who witnessed the landing, according to ABC. "The angle didn't manage to straighten out and the tail broke off."

While smoke billowed from the aircraft and the tail lay separated from the main body of the plane, photos taken by an evacuated passenger show other passengers as they exit the plane via inflatable slides.

"I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I'm ok. Surreal...," tweeted David Eun, who also photographed the scene.

While early reports did not mention any fatalities, San Francisco Fire Department informed CBS of two deaths related to the accident.

Flight 214 was a Boeing 777 and there is no apparent cause yet determined for the crash but the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
