Something's wrong with this costume

A group of revellers looking for a laugh during Halloween turned to the tragic subject of crashed Asiana Airlines Flight 214.

The Boeing 777 jet crashed and burst into flames in July as it landed short of the runway at San Francisco International Airport, killing two people and injuring 182 others.

The flight had 307 people - 291 passengers and 16 crew - on board when it left Seoul.

The aircraft apparently struck a rocky area at the water's edge, short of the runway at the airport.

The Halloween revellers dressed themselves up in crew and captain's uniforms during the weekend at a party at Montbleu Casino and Resort in Lake Tahoe, Nevada in the US, the Mail Online reported.

They also covered the uniforms with fake blood.

Their prank has drawn online backlash for showing a lack of sensitivity towards the tragedy.

The dark joke also included fake labels of the mock Asian crew names infamously shown on live television by a San Francisco TV station.
