SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) -- Families of three Chinese teens killed in the Asiana Flight 214 crash landing at San Francisco International Airport have hired lawyers.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday that the Chinese families retained a New York firm to represent them. One of the victims, 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan, survived the July 6 crash only to be fatally struck by a San Francisco Fire Department rescue truck.

Lawyer Anthony Tarricone said Yuan was the family's only child. Yuan's relatives issued a statement through their attorneys Friday saying they were "devastated and heartbroken."

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating Yuan's death.
