Thirty-one Chinese survivors of a fatal plane crash that occurred in the U.S. city of San Francisco, have returned to China.

The returnees are students and teachers from Jiangshan Middle School in east China's Zhejiang Province.

They were among a 34-member group traveling to the U.S. to attend a summer camp.

Two female students in the group died in the crash.

Another girl who was previously in critical condition died on Saturday as a result of severe injuries she suffered in the accident.

The survivors arrived in Beijing on Saturday, and will travel to their homes in Zhejiang on Sunday.

The ill-fated Asiana Airlines Flight 214 made a crash landing at the San Francisco International Airport about a week ago.

Among over 290 passengers were 141 Chinese.
