There are similarities in this incident with the one involving an Air Canada flight at Halifax at the end of March. That one also involved an A320 landing short of the runway. Link to it here: //www.city-data.com/forum/aviat...ir-canada.html

Some more pictures of the accident: Asiana plane skids off runway at Hiroshima, Japan - BBC News

By the look of it, they were lucky not to go over the edge and down the embankment.
