Amid the debris, there was so many signs of quick thinking that saved so many lives. It is nothing short of a miracle that we had literally 123 people walk away from this. Reporter: Those chutes deployed from the jet. The flight crew springing into action to save the passengers before emergency personnel could even arrive there on the runway. When we had arrived on scene, the chutes had been deployed and we observed multiple numbers of people coming down the chutes and actually walking to their safety. Reporter: It was angelina, a passenger on board that flight, that captured this video of the aftermath. You can see the fire department personnel right there, helping the passengers. Angelina herself sending this video to reassure her family, awaiting word. There were so many people here in the bay area who had no idea they would be helping out, too. We did run a little bit short of blood at one time, but thanks to the blood bank in san francisco, we were able to catch up and to get what we needed. Passengers also deserve a lot of credit. From what I'm hearing, there wasn't this mad rush. People were trying to help each Reporter: So many people here in san francisco, reaching out to help. The rescue crews, that flight crew. The blood donors. And a worker at the airport, holding this little boy's hand. So many people to applaud. I was out on the bay today with a out vie vor, a father, who brought fire trucks back for his son. He bought the trucks, they were in his suitcase. His two boys playing with them tonight. He said he will tell them much later in life what happened here in san francisco.
