Report: Asiana Flight 214 survivors to be compensated

SAN FRANCISCO

Asiana plans to pay an initial compensation of $10, 000 to each passenger who survived the July 6 crash.

The amount is supposed to cover medical expenses and transportation.

The report says passengers can still sue the airline even after accepting the compensation.

Three people died when the plane struck a seawall short of the runway at SFO.

More than 300 people on-board survived the crash.
