SAN FRANCISCO - Emergency calls from people aboard a plane that crashed at San Francisco International Airport portray a scene of chaos, with passengers begging for help and saying ambulances weren't coming fast enough.
The California Highway Patrol released the 911 calls late Wednesday.
One caller tells a 911 dispatcher: "There are no ambulances here. We have been on the ground 20 minutes."
Another tells a dispatcher there's a woman on the runway with severe burns to her head. The caller says, "She will probably die soon if we don't get help."
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash-landed Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring many others as it skittered and spun 100 feet.
San Francisco officials say ambulances could not come too close out of concern that the plane would explode.
