he mentioned venezuela. he mentioned countries in africa which are suffering from disease and poverty. and a special prayer for peaceful negotiations between israel and palestine. today marks the end of easter celebrations, but the celebrations will continue next week on sunday at the vatican for the canonizations. cnn, rome. hello again, everyone. i'm fredricka whitfield. new video showing the intense effort to find victims of the south korean ferry disaster. families are waiting, heartbroken as bodies are brought to shore and today some of the stunning last words from the crew that escaped is impossible. also today, a secondary strike killed more al qaeda
terror suspects. what we're learning about the attack in yemen. and a year after the boston marathon bombing. a city gets ready to run again. coming up we hear from some of the youngest victims who were so close to the blast last year. our top story, the death toll rises to 59 in that ferry that sank off the coast of south korea. and we're getting new details about what happened when the ship was rolling over. from a radio transcript released a short time ago, here's what we know right now. divers are trying to inch through the sunken ferry hoping to find any survivors. but so far they're only coming across bodies. they're bringing those bodies back to shore one by one as heartbroken families watch. today's death toll could go much higher. 243 people are still missing. many of them are teens who all went to the same high school. families try to get from jindo, the base of the search effort, to the capitol of seoul. they say they want to tell the
government about their situations. but they were stopped by police. the captain, his third mate, and a crew technician all made it off the ferry and now face charges. now a radio transcript may answer some of the questions as to what happened during this tragedy. here now is paula hancock. >> reporter: officials have released more of the radio transcript. according to these transcripts the initial distress signal went out at 8:55 a.m. on wednesday. and just one minute later at 8:56, an unidentified crew member of the sewol said the ship rolled over a lot right now. cannot move. now, the communication lasted until 9:38 a.m. so 43 minutes after the initial distress signal and that is when communication was lost. but from these transcripts we can see the crew member said on a number of occasion the ship is listing too much. we cannot move. this appears to show just how
quickly this ship listed and how quickly it sunk. and there have been many questions as to why more passengers have not been put onto the life rafts and the rescue boats that were on this ship. also the questions are still being asked as to why the initial order given to passengers was to stay put on this sinking ship. meanwhile there were bodies retrieved more than a dozen retrieved from the ship this sunday. they were brought to shore here at jindo harbor and laid out in tents where the desperate families had to walk through and see if they could identify their child or their loved one. a very heart breaking scene and given the number of missing passengers still, it is a scene that is likely to be played out in coming days as well. now, there are still hopes of finding survivors. search and rescue officials say they're working under the assumption there will be survivored. but clearly hope is fading. back to you. >> all right. thank you so much paula hancocks.
very tough situation. no survivors have been found since the 174 people were rescued on wednesday. for the second day in a row a deadly air strike hit terror suspects in yemen. a suspected drone strike killed at least a dozen people including a number of al qaeda militants. it happened in southwest yemen next to the site of yesterday's drone strike that killed ten suspected al qaeda members. saturday's strike was targeting three well-known operatives linked to a terror training camp. sunlen is following the story today. do we have any more detail about who was targeted? >> reporter: we still don't know if they were high-value targets. officials say the targets could have been a training camp or militants on the move in vehicles. yemeni government official confirms to muhammad jamjoom they were targeting what this official describes as the core
of the strongest al qaeda affiliates. the attack today took place in abyan. not far from saturday's attack. that strike killed at least 15 al qaeda militants and 3 civilians. the strikes often happen in successive days. peter bergen says this is the ninth strike in yemen this year alone. >> president obama has launched incredibly aggressive campaign in yemen. that's because most people agree that the threat from al qaeda and jyemen is the most troublin to the united states right now. >> reporter: back to you. >> all right. thanks so much from washington. the underwater robot looking for flight 370 is now on its eighth mission. ahead, i'll tell you what new obstacle the searchers will be facing the next couple of days. and up next, the agony of families waiting for word on
their loved ones in that south korean ferry disaster. what does an apron have to do with car insurance? an apron is hard work. an apron is pride in what you do. an apron is not quitting until you've made something a little better. what does an apron have to do with car insurance? for us, everything.
the death toll rose to 59 a short time ago in that ferry off the coast of south korea. bodies are being recovered as heartbroken families watch. >> reporter: the first police boat returns from the search site. parents waiting, bracing. they return one by one in identical plain white bags. behind the screen, initial inspection. a blanket to cover. and a short march back to land.
parents rush to the white tents to identify their children. he must have said daddy save me, weeps this father. no one is immune to the sound of losing a child. as the families leave the tents, so, too, do the stretchers emptied. returning to the gurneys that await the next boat. another group of someone's children, another march back to the tents. 13 return in this group. but more than 200 are still missing. gurneys on the left side of the dock, divers board ships to the right to continue the search. to bring the rest home. cnn, jindo, south korea.

welcome back to the "newsroom." lots going on today. and nick valencia here with much more. >> happy easter to you guys watching at home. let's catch up on the headlines. a mysterious shooting in eastern ukraine has left at least one person dead. earlier this morning one of their road blocks was attacked when some gunmen opened fire. ukraine's prime minister this morning blames all of the unrest in russia on the president.
>> president putin has a dream to restore the soviet union. and every day he goes further and further and god knows where is the final destination. and he was very clear saying this stuff in his state of the union a few years ago. i consider it the biggest disaster of this century would be the restoring of the soviet union. >> those protesters are ignoring a call for them to vacate government buildings that they seized. malaysian airlines plane made an emergency landing after takeoff. it had 166 people on board. after turning around were the train was able to land safely back there. you don't react with denzel washington. you just sit back and be
mesmerized by this talented person. >> a lot of people would say the same about rubin carter. carter has died. he spent 19 years in prison before a judge freed him in 1985. denzel washington was nominated for an oscar for portraying rubin carter in "the hurricane." carter died in toronto after battling prostate cancer. he was 76. denzel washington just released this statement saying, good bless rubin carter and his tireless fight to ensure justice for all. crews are working to stop a slow-moving landslide in wyoming. a chunk of mountainside desce descending on the side of the mountain, it's not known what caused it. but the theory is construction combined after a wet winter. here's a story we brought you yesterday. a high school student is on a
three-day suspension for asking a woman to prom. but it was who he asked and how he did it that landed him in hot water. >> excuse me. >> miss america, will you go to prom with me? >> look at all his classmates cheering there for patrick. he asked miss america to prom during an appearance at his school. the school's administration was not amused immediately putting him out in school suspension. he later apologized and explained why he did it. >> i'm actually thankful for the punishment. i thought i was going goat, you know, get prom taken away. i thought i might have not been walking at graduation or anything. i was happy with the punishment i got. >> pretty good kid. she released this statement last night. >> i was flattered although i am unable to attend due to my travel schedule. i learned of the action taken
and reached out to the school in hopes they will reconsider their decision. we called miss america yesterday to try to coordinate something, but -- >> he was a little bolder than we expected. >> so bold. all his friends around him. >> right. and the school simply said that he wasn't very -- what was the word they used? they didn't like his behavior. >> yeah. they told him not to do it. >> it wasn't proper conduct. >> he did it anyway. he gained a lot of fans now. he's popular on social media. >> it's a good thing she had a sense of humor about it too. but i understand, scheduling conflict. >> but you're available for prom, fred. >> okay. he hasn't asked. all right, thanks. appreciate that. all right. just over a year ago twin bombings killed three people and wounded hundreds more at the boston marathon finish line. but the city's spirit of
perseverance survived and grew even stronger. tomorrow's race, in fact, will have more runners than last year and even more spectators. brooke baldwin is in boston with a look at how boston has remained so strong and as you mentioned, you know, a million people now we're talking a million boston strong. >> reporter: that's exactly right. 1 million spectators. the biggest this race will have seen in its 118-year history. i want to tell you at this hour a specific story here about these two young men who were at this finish line on boylston street one year ago. they were watching one of the mothers run this 26.2 miles and they happened to be captured in now what's really become one of the most iconic photos as you can see them standing next to who we know was 8-year-old martin richard and his sister jamie who lost a leg in that blast. listen to their story. these two smiling children, martin and jane richard, the face of that cruel day in
boston. a few feet away, the alleged bombers are about to strike. >> kept looking over at the kids. and they're screaming and yelling for their parents to keep running. they were cheering them on. >> reporter: martin just eight years old was killed. his sister janie lost her leg. moments before a bomb tore into their lives, captured in this haunting photo. but what happened to those other boys standing inches away? >> to see where they were next to me and to find out. >> reporter: aaron hern is next to martin on the right. they were hit by a concussive blast. >> it felt like it was right on top of us. and then i -- he was in this cloud. i was just standing right over there. >> reporter: in the scramble they were pulled apart. feet from martin richard. >> i think it was martin and it
was over about five feet that way. it was a lady trying to get him to stay up. and once in awhile when i have visions, that's one of the things in my visions i see. the woman trying to get the kid up. >> i did not see what happened to him. i guess -- and i don't want to say i forgot, but there wasn't any thoughts in my head at that moment. >> reporter: even with his injuries, aaron remembers seeing martin. >> i saw a boy over there on the concrete. i looked at my legs and from my knees down was solid red of blood. >> reporter: at the hospital they felt relief that they had survived. a room away, the richard family grieved. >> i've always wanted to trade places with him, because i didn't think it was fair. but i do remember how lucky i am. >> this was taken one week after your injury. >> reporter: david's ears are
slowly healing. though ear specialists worried his hearing loss might become the worst of his injuries. >> there it is. a completely healed eardrum. >> reporter: aaron's leg injuries are also on the mend. >> i have my scars still. they're probably going to be there forever, but i don't have any problems. once in awhile i'll have some stings. >> bless those that lost their lives -- >> reporter: at the memorial, the boys found inspirtion seeing janie richard. >> it was inspiring to see her. i'll always have that in my head. >> reporter: 13 years young to go through something like that is absolutely unimaginable. i tell you, speaking of martin richard. there is a foundation his family has set up. mr8. so a lot will be running together in honor of the youngest victim. aaron's parents will be running the marathon tomorrow. we know that aaron won't be out
on the street, he'll be surrounded by survivors in a controlled area. but he will certainly be cheering the 36,000 runners strong. that is 9,000 more from the previous year. and as we mentioned off the top, this is going to be the biggest race in terms of people lining the race route all the way to boston. 1 million people. >> that is incredible. and incredible stories of strength from all those individuals involved. you know, besides that human strength that's being exhibited in so many different ways, there's also going to be an incredible, i guess, vision of strength coming from law enforcement there too. that cannot be overlooked. how serious of a security stepup is this one year later? >> reporter: yeah. obviously they're not messing around. no one's taking any chance this year. police will be among the spectators. there will be plain clothed officers. they are doubling security from races past. also zero bag policy this year.
no backpacks or ruck sacks. no vests. no clothing covering faces even in terms of liquids they'll be checking nothing more than one liter. and more careful. more bomb-sniffing dogs. isle going to be out here all day long reporting on this story. the only thing i want to report on is smiling faces crossing that finish line. >> and an incredible show of strength there in boston. thanks so much. we'll be watching of course. all right. the underwater robot is now on its eighth mission to scour the indian ocean. we'll bring you the latest on the search for flight 370 and why there will be big changes ahead for that search operation. we asked people a question, how much money do you think you'll need when you retire? then we gave each person a ribbon to show how many years that amount might last. i was trying to, like, pull it a little further.
[ woman ] got me to 70 years old. i'm going to have to rethink this thing. it's hard to imagine how much we'll need for a retirement that could last 30 years or more. so maybe we need to approach things differently, if we want to be ready for a longer retirement. ♪ say "hi" rudy.

[ barks ]
searching for flight 370 has now started its eighth mission. the bluefin-21 has been scanning the indian ocean for signs of the plane but so far nothing's been found. now there could be a new challenge. now to perth for the latest on the search. >> reporter: weather could become a factor with a tropical cyclone named jack striking just north of the search area. it's not making a direct impact, but they can expect larger waves and swells over the next three days which may have an impact on the visual search for debris as well as the underwater search of the bluefin-21 which as of this morning was on its eighth mission. not a single sign so far of missing malaysian flight 370. it's managed to cover 50% of this narrowed search area which is based on a 10 kilometer or 6
mile radius around the point of the second acoustic detection which was made. it was the stronger of the four pings. that's why they believe it's the most likely place that they are going to be able to find the black box. now authorities say they expect this portion of the search to be wrapped up in the next five to seven days. but again, that's weather dependent. it's also dependent on the bluefin-21's performance. >> all right. thanks so much in perth, australia. we'll take a closer look at the weather conditions in a few minutes. right now the scanning of the ocean bottom so far has turned up nothing. and the fusofficials in charge search say it's time to regroup. what that means let's bring in our panel today. thomas alsher, mary skivo, and
peter golds. all right. so when we hear reassessing, it sounds like going back to the draws board. how far back here? >> well, i think they should go right back to the beginning. i think they need to assemble a new team with fresh eyes to look at the raw data with a completely unbiased approach. see if they come up with the same solutions as the first team. and secondly they're going to have to look towards a longer term search which probably means bringing in total rays and we're in this for the long haul which is not surprising. >> do you think at this juncture it's worth bringing in new submersibles? >> oh, absolutely. but i think they need to finish the mapping of this area first.
as you describe, imagine drawing a six mile diameter circle around the ping areas and then putting a square around that. and that's what the submersible has to do. has to cover all that area. and they need to cover that first. if that does not turn up the wreckage, then absolutely they should bring in more equipment. >> but thomas, how discouraging is it in your view if they abandon the use of the bluefin any further this week or just over the matter of a couple days more before pulling it out of the water. >> well, it's not really discouraging. i mean, the bluefin robotic system, it's designed to get close to the bottom and do a pretty high resolution slow survey. you don't want to deploy it unless you have a good target area. i think what they're feeling is maybe that target area isn't quite as good. in a week they'll know that. if they turn up nothing, they'll have to reassess what the pings mean. there are more systems. could mean more underwater
vehicles. or probably some side scan sonar systems to try to expand the area surveyed. >> is reassess in your view also code for, maybe it's not here at all. maybe those pings were false positives? >> it's hard to decipher code. that's always a challenge. but there is a risk that the pings were from other sources. there are other man-made systems that will radiate or will put out acoustic energy. >> is that your view that there are other things that could radiate that kind of energy? because when it happened there was so much excitement from australian officials. there were so many analysts saying there was nothing that could duplicate that frequency. even if it meant any kind of device that were put on fish in the area. it's a different kind of frequency. and it can't be confused with anything. what happened to all that? >> i think this investigation has been plagued by, you know,
degrees of over statement. but in this case in terms of the pings, there were a couple of red flags that were raised. one was that one of the pings that they picked up was 17 miles from the other three pings. you're not quite sure what that meant. and that also the pings that were being generated which were at a different megahertz than what the black boxes were supposed to produce. so there were a couple of red flags that might have been caution naur. but there was no question. they had to do this search. and as mary said, they have to do it to its completion. >> thanks so much to all of you. appreciate it. >> thank you. search crews have been spending long hours searching the indian ocean mile by mile. and in a minute we'll take you aboard one of those search planes as they try to find any trace of flight 370.

goes across this search area. this is tropical storm jack. this looks to be falling apart or decreasing in intensity fairly rapidly. it has been at a category 3, but it weakens considerably going into the next 24 and 48 hours. still really only impacting that extreme northwestern quadrant, but it looks beyond that 24-hour time period. we start to see the rain increase. could be heavy at times. so we're not worried about rain. we're worried about the reduced visibility because of the rainfall as they send those aircraft flying in and out of this search area. but not just the reduced visibility. then on top of that we start to see the wind that could be affecting this region as well. not going to be very dramatic, but nonetheless gusts up to 45 miles an hour. so we continue to monitor this as it drifts its way fairly slowly towards the south.
>> thanks so much. appreciate that. so as we just heard, weather conditions could complicate the search. to get a sense of what those long missions have been like, cnn's miguel marquez rode along with a crew that played a key role in the surface search. >> reporter: another day, another search, another hope of finding something. any scrap of debris related to malaysian flight 370. >> it's our mission to find it. we want to be the crew that does find it, but it takes time. >> reporter: captain tim mcalvery. he's now here a thousand miles off the australian coast. >> rough ly the distance we've flown for two and a half hours on station and the climb out. >> reporter: this new zealand
crew, equipment made for hunting enemy submarines stare at screens and at the sea. flying at times just 200 feet above the water. the plane's wingspan, 100 feet. they spot just about everything. >> but that's the nature of the game. we're looking for absolutely anything that could possibly be mh-370. >> reporter: in past searching they've seen more. one was this. a tangle of fishing net or straps from a car go hold. >> we patrolled and detected a small red object that we believed to be not more than one meter by one meter. >> reporter: the australian naval ship responded from 30 miles a i way. it launched a raft and vessel and direct them to the object. >> it was a large basket or tray, the kind you would
typically find in a supermarket holding 20 loaves of bread. >> reporter: not from mh-370. another frustration. the mission goes on. miguel marquez, cnn over the southern indian ocean. also coming up as we look ahead to this year's boston marathon, we'll go back one year and meet some of the fbi agents involved in the manhunt for the bombing suspect. but first, this summer the cnn fit nation triathlon challenge culminates in the big race in malibu, california. chief medical correspondent sanjay gupta is busy training to get ready. but he still found time to chat with big loser trainer bob harper with a new book out. "skinny meals: everything you need to lose weight fast." >> there's something about you a lot of people don't know. you grew up on a cattle farm in nashville. >> that's right. >> but still i know you're on board with this rule which we both say maybe go meatless at least one day a week.
something that's become popular because habits are easier to change and stick to earlier in the week. how much of an impact do you think that makes for people? >> i say -- i preface this by saying i am a meat eater. and i get most of my protein from lean animal protein. i like people to go meatless especially people that aren't used to eating a lot of vegetables, not familiar with a lot of vegetables that are out there, how to prepare them. so it's like if i have you going meatless one day, it causes you to explore a set of foods that you probably aren't used to. that's why in my book skinny meal, i have so many vegetable options so you're not just having steamed broccoli. because who wants to eat that all the time? i think it's important to get people to get more familiar with eating vegetables and know that vegetables just aren't french fries and corn. >> right. which does seem to be the norm in a lot of places around the country. >> unfortunately.

there. maybe perfect conditions for tomorrow as well. it is patriots day in boston which mean this marathon is tomorrow morning. they're expecting record crowds and a record number of runners one year after the twin bombings there. those bombings killed three people and wounded hundreds more at the finish line. the race will be run with much tighter security, but what happened last year has not been forgotten. after the blast near the finish line, it was the search for the suspects that captivated the attention of everyone in boston and quite frankly around the country. cnn's debra farek sat down with two of the top people that described the keys of the manhunt and how it all played out. [ explosion ] >> reporter: the force of the two blasts 12 seconds apart said it all. what struck you about it? >> just the magnitude of it. it wasn't something small.
it wasn't something insignificant. >> reporter: within minutes more than a thousand police and federal law enforcement agents would embark on the largest investigation and manhunt of its kind in the united states. by the time you got to the crime scene, this is really what it looked like, correct? >> yes. there was a scene of utter devastation and carnage. >> reporter: at fbi headquarters, stephanie douglas was keenly aware of the stakes. >> we had to be concerned that there were other bombs or other co-conspirators elsewhere outside of boston. >> reporter: authorities knew at least one killer was on the loose but where and what next? by tuesday investigators had started piecing together the pressure cooker bombs describing them similar to an al qaeda bomb making manual. >> we were collecting pieces of shrapnel. pieces of backpacks that
contained the bomb. >> reporter: confirmation 36 hours after the attack. >> a couple people came in with a laptop like this and they said and said we think we know who did it. >> reporter: something unmistakable at the second blast site you. >> you see a man walking into the frame of the shot. >> he places that backpack down on the ground, sliding it off his shoulder. a short time later, maybe 15 minutes later, he makes a cell phone call and after that call concludes very shortly thereafter you hear the first bomb go off further down near the finish line. glances quickly to the left and then walks diligently and dlib ralt l rattly to the right. after departing the view of the camera the second bomb goes off. >> reporter: that video has never been seen by the public
and expected to be shown at trial in november. what did that suggest to you when he took a cell phone call? >> there was another conspirator. >> reporter: that was another crucial lead. >> and this video depicted the individual would then call black hat with white hat down boylston street, both of them carrying black backpacks. >> reporter: with the suspects still at large, a game changing decision. >> today we are listing the public's help to identify the two suspects. >> reporter: hours passed and yet no tips identified them by name. but for the brothers, things were about to unravel. how important was it to you and to the bureau and everybody else involved in the investigation that the two suspects be taken alive? >> very, very important. >> reporter: but that's not what happened. >> they have explosives.
some type of grenades. three houses down here. shots fired. >> reporter: following an eight-minute fire fight in watertown, police wrestled a wounded tamerlan to the ground. his brother tried to free him. instead police say he ran him over. tamerlan was fingerprinted and finally identified by name. his brother shot discovered hiding in a boat after a day-long lockdown. he was less than .2 of a mile from where he had abandoned his vehicle. >> he's got a sniper's rifle at his head? >> yeah. he was a threat. >> reporter: dzhokhar will stand trial in november. all right. next, britain's royal couple on holiday in australia. looks like they're no different from any other mom and dad.
