SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Investigators say an Asiana aircraft's landing gear hit a seawall before the tail of the plane during a weekend crash.
   
The disclosure came on Tuesday during a news conference by the National Transportation Safety Board, which is still ongoing.
   
The hulking Boeing 777 crashed during its landing at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, killing two 16-year-old Chinese girls and leaving at least two other people paralyzed.
   
The aircraft hit a seawall at the end of the runway, a collision that broke off the tail and sent the fuselage bouncing and skidding across the airfield.

More to follow.
