government response. i should say we've seen social media in the last few hours suggesting ukrainian army is on the move. that could be the harbinger of something to come but frankly right now people who have been behind me are pro russian protesters. >> pro russian protesters. are these also russian troops or mercenaries. >> reporter: it's hard to disscene who these pro russian militants are here. they are not all obviously russian servicemen as we saw moving into the crimean peninsula. these are men in similar camouflage uniforms who are trained. they know what they are doing but not that same sense of them being part of a broader force. there's similar tactics in crimea backed up by pro russian protesters who moved in and very well organized, very well coordinated with a strategic

points they take that make sense if you look to control of a border area. >> nick patton wash. that's it for us. see you at 11:00. good evening from boston. i am bill weir. we begin with breaking news on the never ending hunt for flight 370. navy's underwater search vehicle aborted its mission. it exceeded its operating depth of just under three miles deep. a built in safety feature returned it to the surface after six hours of data gathering. technicians looking at that data hoping against hope it might present some trace of the plane after a disappointing first search day. revelations about the co-pi lot's cell phone, a u.s. official tells cnn the phone
6:02 pm
made contact with a cell tower in malaysia about the time the plane vanished from radar. what does it mean? here in boston we're remembering another moment that shocked so many around the world, one year ago tonight this town was giddy with the anticipation of another boston marathon. but with no idea the two brothers with two pressure cooker bombers, bombs would turn that finish line into a battlefield. tonight begins a special week here, a chance to mourn lives lost and bodies broken but also a chance to celebrate what makes boston strong. like a man in the cowboy hat, carlos who jumped into the crowd to help the wounded. he'll join me along with john, the photographer who took this iconic image for the "sports illustrated" cover. a pulitzer prize for their work.
6:03 pm
it is great to be here in boston. great to be across from the old south church about 100 yards from the finish line. so much healing has gone on here. we'll meet some fantastic folks later in the show. let's begin tonight with the latest on the hunt for flight 370. pamela brown has a look at some of the missed opportunities in an investigation that's gone on for more than five weeks with no definitive trace of that missing plane. >> reporter: more than five weeks in the latest strange twist in the investigation. sources tell cnn first officer's cell phone was on and searching for service roughly half an hour after flight 370's communications mysteriously shut off, information cnn learned that malaysian authorities first gave to the u.s. a while ago. >> very rare in my pinto have someone with a cell phone on in the cockpit. it's never supposed to be on at
6:04 pm
all as part of every checklist. >> reporter: sources say malaysian authorities told the u.s. a cell tower in malaysia 250 miles from where the plane turned around picked up a signal suggests the co-pilot's phone was the only phone turned on after transponder turned off. u.s. officials caution there's no evidence the first officer nor anyone else on the plane tried to make a call. the twists and turns started early in the investigation. first, fears of terrorism with two passengers using stolen passports. >> the more information we get the more we're inclined to conclude it was not a terrorist incident. >> reporter: then after days of searching the south china sea say long the route the plane should have been the bomb shell. the plane had turned around, heading back over the malaysian peninsula. and after weeks of insisting the last words from the cockpit were all right, good night, malaysian authorities suddenly changing the wording to, good night, malaysian 370. and now they say those words
6:05 pm
came from the captain not the co-pilot. and just last week conflicting information from malaysian officials not long after the police chief said all the plane's passengers have been cleared the transport minister declared everyone on board remained under suspicion with the investigation being ongoing. also the transport minister talked about how some of the confusion along the way with the information getting lost in translation. bill, i have to say there's been complications from a reporting standpoint because you have so many different agencies involved with this investigation. >> it seems like a five week exercise in lost in translation. why do we think we're getting the cell phone information now? is that the excuse? >> reporter: well, in talking to sources, malaysians have shared this data with u.s. investigators a while ago. i can't tell you exactly when but we know it was a while ago and also i think that u.s. investigators are being cautious
6:06 pm
with the information they are being given because it's not their data, it's not firsthand information and, of course, from the reporting standpoint we're also being careful before we report it. and as we keep reiterating, bill, this is malaysian's information handed over to us. >> okay. pamela brown, thanks very much. let's bring in cnn other reporters live in the search homes. michael holmes, in perth. talk to me about the bluefin-21. this thing is pretty slow on a good day. why did it come back to the surface so soon today? >> reporter: yeah. you know, bill, it really speaks to how little we know about the ocean floor there. the best guess by those who are operating the bluefin was that the ocean depth was around 4400 meters down, it's a bit deeper than that it would appear. the bluefin went down, takes about two hours to get down there and meant to be on the
6:07 pm
ocean floor or above the ocean floor for about 16 hours. well after about six hours, it hit about 4,500 meters. it has a built in mechanism that tells it if you're getting too low, too close to the ocean floor go back up. that's what happened. that kicked in. it went back up to the surface. you know i was talking to one of the people operating this whole operation and he said these things happen. it's not a big deal. it slows it down a little bit. they lost probably, you know, ten hours of being on the ocean floor. but it's not a big deal. it's back up at the surface now. what they are doing is downloading the data there. putting in a new task program and then going to send it out in a few hours when weather conditions permit. it's a very laborious task. it only does 15 square miles. could take anywhere from six
6:08 pm
weeks to two months. >> and somebody used the analogy, if father's and mother's out there remember ultrasound, a doctor tells you ate foot or whatever, when they get the data of the bottom of the sea floor, how long will it take to interpret that cincinnati not as clear cut as a photograph of a plane down in the silt, i'm sure. >> reporter: yeah. i've heard that same analogy a bit like an ultrasound being taken. i want does give a pretty detailed sort of image of the ocean floor. it sends out what's called side scan sonar and picks up really in effect a 3-d image of the ocean floor. what it does then is if there's something on the ocean floor that looks a bit out of place then that warrants further investigation. one of the problems down there on the bottom is that there is thought to be a lot of silt and that's going to create a problem when they are looking for the black boxes if those boxes
6:09 pm
detached from the plane wreckage. even if the plane is down there those black boxes could have been buried in silt which will be very difficult to find. the pings have stopped. the idea is it's there, it will look for any big pieces of wreckage, give them a sense of what is there on the ocean floor. we remain optimistic or confident may be too stroocng oa word. this is their best guess area. >> michael, we appreciate information. let's go to joe johns in kuala lumpur. since the aussies took the lead we haven't heard a lot out of malaysia. what do they say. how are the families fairing? >> reporter: no we haven't. the acting transport minister and defense minister, continues to give occasional briefings but not daily. he's a lawyer so tends to answer questions in a way that leaves open all the possibilities p
6:10 pm
precluding nothing which is a bit maddening to some. that's created a problem here in this country. a recent poll shows among malaysian as majority respondents think the government has a transparency problem right now. so he's not answering all the questions that are put to him, frankly, because he doesn't have all the answers, i think i would say. now the one thing he has done again and again and again is underscore the difficulty of the search. and that is with a variety of countries. i don't think that's anything anyone code is agree with. as far as the families go, there's still deep concerns and a reluctance to go public full on simply because they don't have all the answers either. they would like very much to see some evidence of what happened to this plane before they start talk. here and there we do get some comments from a range of people, and most of that is about frustration, bill. >> are any of those families
6:11 pm
holding out hope that somebody is coming back? this is a psychological case study in grieving, i'm sure. but i saw a report earlier today you said some of them in order to cope have to think that the one they love is just on a very long trip. >> reporter: right. it's very difficult for people to sort of put their heads around the idea that their family member is gone simply because they don't know what happened. we've heard that again and again and again. yes, the wife of one of the crew members who spoke to cnn said that's how she's dealing with it. they are imagining that their family member went on a trip and hasn't returned yet and it may just very well stay that way until there are some conclusive facts or evidence to indicate this plane crashed or whatever happened to it, bill. >> okay. joe johns in kuala lumpur. thanks to you and let's turn now
6:12 pm
to mary schiavo, former inspector general with the department of transportation currently an attorney for victims of transportation accidents. also rob mccallum joins us an ocean search specialist. mary talk to me about the cell phone being on and getting a ping there whether or not he was trying to make a call. we don't have any indication. what does that dit you about altitude, about course, about direction? >> well, it can indicate a lot of things, or it can just pose a lot more questions and the first question of course what other information is out there. we have heard unequivocally no one tried make a phone call, no pings. i want does say at some point after the plane had made the turn that if it was down low enough for that plane and the cell phone on the plane to make contact with a cell phone tower it poses many possibilities not the least of which is that they
6:13 pm
descended to try to intentionally get a cell phone tower signal because something was wrong. that's one of the possibilities that comes up again, you know, in that scenario. you can think of nefarious scenarios too. we don't have any more information once again from the malaysian authorities. >> rob, do you think it was a good idea to shift so much to the underwater search? i know there's still planes looking. they found an oil slick which may or may not be anything. what do you think about the wisdom of using the bluefin at this stage like this? >> i think it was timely to move into the underwater phase. it's clear the pingers are at the very edge of their life. so it was time to put sonar in the water. today highlighted that we do have all our eggs in one basket. you know, we have one vehicle, one auv operating at the very edge of its depth range.
6:14 pm
maybe it's time to consider using deep sonar and having more than one asset in the water. >> mary, rob, thank you. when we come back who better to talk about the challenges of this deep sea search than diver who has been down the wreck of the "titanic" more than anyone else alive. and later man behind the most iconic image of the boston bombings. the photographer just won a pulitzer. we'll talk about the year since and the healing that's happened as well. ♪
6:15 pm
[ male announcer ] even more impressive than the research this man has at his disposal is how he puts it to work for his clients. morning. morning. thanks for meeting so early. come on in. [ male announcer ] it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. say "hi" rudy.

6:18 pm
detection in six days. so, i guess, it's time to go underwater. >> we told you about the disappointing first underwater search day, the navy's bluefin-21 aborting its mission and we return to the surface after exceeding its operating depth. if it gets down to three miles, too much pressure has to bob back up and this is a clear illustration how difficult a deep sea search can be. joining me is a man who knows more than anybody else, he has been down the "titanic" wreck more than 30 times. that ship sank 102 years.
6:19 pm
p.h. good to talk to you from boston. school us a little bit about just the conditions, pitch black, incredible pressure, how does this search compare to work you did on the "titanic"? >> it's the same kind of search because we're looking for debris field. it was a huge debris field where you can find things from china, piece of wreck, anything like that. same condition of course, totally dark and have to use some light to see anything, you are also use sewing near. we can detect some equipment. we were using also pinger on the debris field because we want to mark some special place, you know, and it was very hard. >> what do you make of this bluefin as a search tool?
6:20 pm
>> you know, the auv is a very good tool because they are close to the bottom. it follows the bottom exactly. the only problem is they have a battery. you don't have a return of the data immediately. you have to download at the end of the dive and you have some information from the auv telling you if it's working well, where it is, the position but you don't see what the auv sees. you have some auvs that can give you some information but they are not very high resolution. it's a big problem. >> yeah. got to sit it down, let it work, pull it up and see what it found. >> yeah. >> do you think that this plane is intact in anyway? what do you think is the biggest piece that it would be looking for? >> imaging that plane is trying to land on under sea with a
6:21 pm
swell like maybe the swell is between ten and 20 feet high and just the instant of the plane touch the water, frozen everything. you will have a bumpy, you know, landing path and do you think that 777 can land on something like that with no damage is, of course, i'm 100% sure the plane explode in little pieces. it was possible it's in some river we know a few years ago in new york but it was absolutely flat. at sea even a seaplane cannot, you know, land on the sea if there's a little bit of swell or anything like that. >> where is the debris then? why in 39 days have we not seen even a cushion no, thing? >> from my point of view if we don't see any debris, the plane is not there. it's so simple. because we should. >> we're looking in the wrong
6:22 pm
place. >> that i'm afraid. even with the pinger, are we sure it's the pinger of the black box? no. there's no way to understand it really is a good pinger or not. there is no -- they are all the same, the pinger are all the same frequency or same signal. there's no distinction possible with this pinger. until we find something, a piece of anything from the plane or anything from the passenger, we cannot be sure the plane was there. >> mary schiavo, rob mccallum, jump back in and comment on p.h. there. >> we know each other. >> there is no physical evidence, you know, in terms of debris. and i was interested this did afternoon for the first time coming to us from perth the captain explaining that they weren't really sure if the pinger they heard was linked to mh-370.
6:23 pm
this is the first time there's any doubt. >> but 39 days, mary, a typhoon in that 39 days, even if there was debris, hasn't it been blown and swirled? >> well, that would be my assumption. especially since in other accidents that's exactly what happened. there's one adam air in the java sea in 2007. that plane was missing for three weeks opinion they found no debris. they had to put out rewards. they offered rewards for people to turn in pieces of plane so they could figure it out. they got the pieces of the plane in august then the black box. there were 194 pieces and just small pieces that washed up. it's possible that there was wreckage. it's been widely dispersed and looking in the wrong places. you know, it's a long time for wreckage to stay in one place,
6:24 pm
floating wreckage. >> yeah. >> go ahead, p.h., jump in. >> i totally agree with that. we saw that on the air france flight too. but when you look at the debris, at the beginning they were all together and it's a big funnel and they were going away from each other. but, you know, as the plane now looking for even to start late to look at this area because shift from one place very south to north. i don't understand very well why they were jumping so far because, you know, one box was at one place and shifted 500 miles north and almost 1,000 miles, shifting such big distance after one blocks. they are close to each other. there was a big hole in between and during this time, if the plane was in this area, all the
6:25 pm
debris drifting in a different direction because of the wind, because of the current, because of anything that already dispersed. with the plane like we're ten plane or 12 planes looking in a big area they should find something. >> you would think so. p.h., thank you. mary, rob, please stick around. coming up let's bring in a veteran pilot to talk about the reports of the co-pilot cell phone, contacting a cell tower in malaysia. what does that mean? could proit vied any information? stay with us.it provide any information? stay with us.
6:26 pm
6:27 pm
6:28 pm
6:29 pm
. welcome back. another intriguing development in the search for flight 370. we learned today the co-pilot's phone was on and made contact with a cell tower in malaysia about the time the plane disappeared from radar. the u.s. official who gave that information to cnn says there's no evidence that the co-pilot tried to make a call. so what does it mean really? joining me now jim tillman, mary schiavo, rob mccallum. jim, what was your reaction when you heard this new nugget? >> i didn't know what to make of it. i still don't. i don't know what to make of it except he forgot to turn it off. if we have a record that he tried to say to someone or signal somehow it would have
6:30 pm
meant a lot more. >> air pressure commercial pilot for 30 years. did you have your phone on as a matter of course? >> no, i did not. as a matter of fact, that would have been one of the last things i would have to do. i still bought into the fact we shouldn't have cell phones operating while the airplane is flying. >> mary, do you think the recent faa or ftc and faa says it's cool to leave your electronic devices on in the airplane mode, could that explain the pilot's actions or like jim most leave them off? >> well, i think it depends. it goes nation by nation. united states is kind at the forefront of that. so, i think that on any aircraft where it's banned and i don't know if they were still banned on malaysian air or not, but, you know, it's pretty, as a flight attendant makes its rounds it's pretty obvious who is and isn't using them.
6:31 pm
giving the number of tsa calls and arrests for cell phone incidents in the u.s. it draws attention. so more than likely if they told them to turn off the cell phones they turned off their cell phones. if there wasn't some alert to turn them back on, it's late at night, people are sleeping but you expect some to go through. when we worked on the 9/11 cases it was remarkable out of 243 people on the airplanes there were probably a dozen or so phone calls at least at a minimum. some of them came on air phones but people, if they know there's something wrong forget the rules about cell phones. they try and tried mightily to get calls through and that was back one 2001. so, you know, the absence of cell phones except from the co-pilot i'm suspicious. i think there might be more. who knows what news will come tomorrow from malaysia. >> you're telling me. jim, just play it out. if it was on, how, low what
6:32 pm
altitude would that 777 have to be in order for that co-pilot's cell phone to register in that tower? >> a lot has to do with the airplane itself, how well it's shielded. i think generally it's assumed that anything above say 4,000 or 5,000 feet be pretty unusual for a cell phone communication to take place. i just -- i've been on airplanes when there's been passengers who wanted to make a phone call to their driver to let them know they were about to land. i found it very irritating and, frankly, i considered to it be a breach of the protocol. but, you know, i just -- i can't make a great deal out of that because there was no transmission. there was not even a press the talk button and nothing came across. to me it smacks of being just one of those factoids that
6:33 pm
happens to be there. makes it took strange but how many times do people forget and leave their cell phone on? >> exactly. jim, mary, thank you so much. when we come back, we'll bring you back here to boston where we are remembering an event that absolutely stunned the planet a year ago tomorrow. the marathon bombing. this is an image that a lot of us have in our minds. we'll remember that terrible day. when i come back i'll talk with the man who took that photograph. "sports illustrated" and just won the pulitzer prize today. stay with us.

6:38 pm
person. watch people stand and cheer and offer to hydrate an endless parade of sweaty amateurs they never met. you can see it in any race in any town. if you've seen one in this town on patriot's day it's some of the best stuff america has to offer which is why the bombing of a year ago tomorrow was such an aberration, such a violent attack on everything that's great about this country and one guy who captured the horrors of that day and the come back in all the days sense is this man. he took that cover photo for cy. he's a staff photographer for the "boston globe". and a new pulitzer prize winner. great to meet you. it's hard to give congratulations. i'm sure your editor said nobody wanted to cover that story. >> he did say that. there was a special moment at the globe when we found out the staff won the pulitzer prize. we paused. we had a moment of remembrance.
6:39 pm
we thought about the year, the survivors, the victims, and everybody who was affected. >> this is a week of not only resilience and boston strong on display but a time to mourn those who were lost. take us back first and what images do you remember in your mind? some of yours are seared into ours. >> i can look across the street and i have a vision of where everybody was that day that i photographed. there was celeste who lost both her legs and her husband who takes his belt off and puts it around one of the legs. she lost both her legs. her daughter sidney 18 years old is 15 feet away from her and two heroes saved her life. i have the image of carlos jumping over the fence and holding the american flag and the first thing he does is he sees jeffrey who is still
6:40 pm
smoldering and goes over and tries to save his life which he did. >> right. i want to go back to the corcorans. they call you uncle john. >> i texted sidney. i said i have to do this interview. she said good luck. we have friendship. she calls me uncle john. i've been with them the whole year. it's a healing process for me to be with them, to hug them and the day that it happened, you know sidney's picture ends up on the front page of the "boston globe" the next day i was so grateful to know she was alive. i didn't know whether her and her mother lived. our friendship, it's one of those precious things that i can text her, i can call them, ask them how they are doing and i know for the marathon they will be right in this spot and i'll be right at the finish line. i'll be with them. >> i watched this event. i didn't cover it like so many people on television. to see the first bomb went off
6:41 pm
over here. the second one just up the street. about two blocks. but i understand that while you were going to work, and capturing photographs an officer said what to you? >> well a cop, there was two cops, first cop within eight seconds of the first bombing he stops me, he looks me right in the eye and said you shouldn't be here there could be another bomb going off. i said thank you. he went his way i went my way. then another police officer said, he saw me taking pictures he said please use dignity while taking photos and that stayed in my head. i tried to do the dignified thing. i realized i was the only photographer here. and i think -- i think my photographs help people heal. people were aware of the horror that went on that day, whether they contributed money to the fund or said a prayer. i think those photos hit home, and people will always remember
6:42 pm
them. >> the one fund got something like $70 million in donations for the 200 plus. >> it's still going on. donations are still coming in. i got so many emails from people saying thank you for taking those pictures. celeste said to me after it was over and we met she said thank you for taking those pictures because people needed to understand what terrorism does to a person. >> what does terrorism do to you? i mean, you saw some photos that the world will never see, the really grim stuff. you were there when it happened. did you have ptsd? >> probably. i might have some form of it. i still am affected by coming here and looking at the barricades the same way they were set up a year ago. i have images of crystal campbell who passed away at the first bomb site. and that image will always stay in my head. nobody will ever see it. i hold it dear to me. and i just have, you know, you
6:43 pm
know, very sad feelings sometimes when i come down boyle street because i think of her and everybody else who were affected by this. >> i understand you did a little bit of photographic therapy, right? you went and took some pictures of nature. >> yeah. my wife and i, we went to sedona, arizona in november for our anniversary. the thought process was to replace all those hesk images with something beautiful. so we did absolutely nothing. we were tourists. we went to the vortexes and saw sun rzs and sunset. i did a book for myself and my wife. there were nights i dreamt of these beautiful scenes and got the marathon out of my head. and i think it really helped me but i'll tell you what helped me the most is being friends with the corcorans. that was a gift. >> a new security protocol i'm sure in place. lot of people will be thinking various thoughts. >> right. >> how has boston changed in the
6:44 pm
last year? >> you know -- >> as a result of this. >> i think boston has changed like no other city. i think, you know, when you think of boston strong now, you think of the marathon. you think of the whole community, not just boston but every where coming together to support the survivors and to help them out. and i'm not even worried about the security. i mean i know the police, you know, even in that photo the three police officers running towards the fallen runner. you can see the boston police did their job and doing the job this year. so nothing to worry about. i'm not worried. i'll be here. and, you know, the world will be watching. >> three fatalities including that beautiful little boy but could have been sommore if those folks hadn't rushed in and helped like carlos the man in the hat. hopefully we can put up that picture because when we come back, carlos is here. we'll reunite you guys and share a few more memories of this on a really significant anniversary. stay with us, everybody.
