Minister identifies victims killed in jet crash

A minister says 1 of the victims of a fighter jet crash in San Diego had recently arrived from South Korea to help care for her daughter's newborn.

The Rev. Kevin Lee of the Korean United Methodist Church said Tuesday that the victims were Young Mi Yoon, who was in her mid-30s; her 2-month-old daughter, Rachel; and her mother, Suk Im Kim.

Lee says the grandmother was helping to care for the infant. Cadaver dogs are still searching for the body of another daughter, identified as 15-month-old Grace Yoon.

The San Diego County medical examiner's office has not officially released the names of the victims.

Both engines on the jet failed while it tried to land at a nearby Marine base Monday. The pilot ejected before the crash.
