SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal safety official says the cockpit voice recorder from Asiana Flight 214 showed the jetliner received a warning that it could stall and tried to increase its speed before it crashed.

National Transportation Safety Board chief Deborah Hersman says at a news conference Sunday the recorder showed the crew called to abort the landing about 1.5 seconds before the crash.

The recorder also showed there was a call to increase airspeed roughly 7 seconds before impact.

Before that, she says, there was no indication in the recordings that the aircraft was having any problems. It was carrying 307 people when it crashed Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring dozens of other people.
