7:00 am
good morning, america. and breaking news, a large passenger plane goes down in the alps. more than 140 passengers on board. our team with the very latest as we come on the air. also breaking overnight, angelina jolie's daring decision, the star revealing this morning her major medical move to prevent cancer. the new surgery almost two years after undergoing a double mastectomy and her message right now to millions of women at risk. also overnight, high alert. president obama's niece threatened before her big ncaa tournament game. a disturbing phone call saying a man on campus with a gun was targeting the princeton basketball player. now the secret service investigating this scare. ♪ and rumer ripping it up on the dance floor. her cha-cha catapulting her near the top of the leaderboard, neck
7:01 am
and neck with derek and nastia. redfoo was sent packing, right here on "gma." good morning, america. it's not a rumor it's a fact that david muir is here. >> i was wondering where you were. >> i came back and boy, today all this breaking news that we're having as we come on the air out west we have developments in the plane crash. >> it was a passengers jet with several people onboard. at least 150 passengers and crew going down this morning and abc has the latest. >> good morning the wreckage has been spotted but difficult to get to. there are questions about the last several minutes of this
7:02 am
flight. the air bus on its way to germany carrying 144 passengers and six crew crashed in this remote area near a popular ski area. the jet dispay peered from radar about are 45 minutes into its flight. it appeared to drop from 38,000 to 6,800 feet but it was over a several minute period. the french president speaking moments ago and other officials say there are no survivors. it is a remote area. crews spotted the wreckage but will have to ski or fly into the area. germanwings is a low cost airline known for its budget fares to european cities. it's a subsidiary of a german giant and this plan has been purchased in 1991. the company tweeted this is a dark day for luftanza while its city changed its logo to gray
7:03 am
and black. >> relatives in spain and germany learning their loved ones are lost. 150 souls in all including the turkish citizens as all. they'll battle the snowy mountains to get to the wreckage. >> i wanted to ask you about the level of decent and how quickly. we know it was about 38,000 feet. took some time to get down to about 9,000 feet. what do we know? >> it's a little below 7,000 feet. it was quicker than normal but seemed to be in control. it looks like the pilots were following emergency procedures which is to change direction to the left and start to lose altitude. pilot doss that and get lower and figure it out. whatever this problem was apparently they couldn't overcome it. >> all right. david kerley. as you just mentioned families beginning to gather at the barcelona airport after learning the news. you can see the hugs as families of victims are believed to be victims obviously, french president already saying that
7:04 am
the terrain so difficult that he believes the conditions might suggest that there might not be any survivors. i want to get to abc news avenue yags consultant john nance. talk to us about what we know about this particular plane. we know it was an air bus a-320. what about the safety record? >> the safety record is up there along with the boeing 737. we have 6,100 flying around the world and been flying since 1987. it's a big work horse so to speak in the world air fleet. >> we know that 40 minutes after takeoff they lost radio contact with the aircraft and air traffic controllers sent the alert. does that give you any new information as to what might have happened? i know there are few details at this moment but the fact they got 40 minutes in before losing contact. >> well the 40 minutes indicates everything was going normally until they came out of altitude and as david pointed
7:05 am
out, it appears to be a controlled decent. in what we call a high dive or basically emergency decent. most likely it was the result of having an emergency depressurization of some sort. there are other things that could cause you to come out of altitude including smoke in the dock cockpit. when they got lower why would they go below 12,000 feet in an area of mountains if they had a visibility problem. >> wreckage has been spotted in a snowy remote area near a popular ski resort. how quickly can people get to it? do we have any details as to whether or not weather might have been a factor? >> no. we really don't. that's a very big puzzle for me. if you had no visibility or you were in clouds below 12,000 feet and you only have to go to 14,000 feet then you're in such high terrain, you don't want to be messing around unless you know exactly where you are. what would have caused that? if it was clear weather, did they have a problem inside the
7:06 am
cockpit such as smoke obscuring their vision? this is a puzzle that we don't have a solution to. >> john stick with us here throughout the morning. we'll have more information as it comes in as our audience at home in the west looks at images of families members arriving in barcelona. an air bus a-320 operated by germanwings crashing this morning 40 minutes after takeoff. nationalities not known. we'll have more as we continue this morning. robin over to you. >> thank you very much. the big announcement from ang angelina jolie revealing she had her facility logan tubes removed. this is not the first time she had a major medical decision. >> this is a bombshell indeed in angelina jolie revealing 39 years old she's removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes and
7:07 am
doing it despite the effects that may follow. she underwent the procedure after going under blood tests. the type of cancer that killed her mother in 2007. >> she was kind to everybody. and yet when it came to protecting her children or doing anything in defense of her children she was very, very strong. >> reporter: her aunt and grandmother also dying from the disease. i went through what i imagine thousands of other women have felt, i told myself to stay calm, to be strong and that i had no reason to think i would not live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren. further tests coming back negative for cancer but jolie still deciding to have the surgery. what she calls the best option, going under the knife just last week. it is not possible to remove all risk and the fact is i remain prone to cancer, she writes. the procedure a success but forcing jolie into early menopause. i will not be able to have any
7:08 am
more children she writes and i expect some physical changes but i feel at ease with whatever will come. this coming nearly two years since the star stunned the world undergoing a preventive double mastectomy after testing positive for a gene mutation that puts her at a higher cancer risk. that choice sparking what many call the angelina effect an increase in the number of women who have undergone genetic testing for cancer and she reflected on the impact of her decision in an interview with george last year. >> i didn't expect there to be so much support and i was very moved by it. it's connected me so much to other families, other women so it's been a beautiful journey. >> at one point she tries to make emphasizing her surgery is not the only option for women. she wants people to know there are definitely other options and that there is power with that knowledge, robin. >> all right, reena, thank you. abc's dr. jennifer ashton is here with much more. we've been talking about this all morning long, jen.
7:09 am
explain what that is. >> the ovarian cancer risk that comes with this mutation is kigt. average woman has about a 1% chance of life. with this type of genetic mutation it can go as high as 40%. we have to remember there's screening for breast cancer. we don't have an accepted screening test for ovarian cancer so use things like ultrasound and a blood test. they're not greet screening methods but all we have. >> talk about the surgery. this is a procedure you have performed. >> i've done it many, many times. straightforward surgery done through the tiny little incision, same day procedure and done in as little as 15 minutes. the key for women to know all the talk right now centers around the fallopian tubes. there's a new thinking ovarian cancer originates in the fallopian tubes itself so those tubes have to come out and by the time of surgery about 5% to
7:10 am
10% of women with this type of genetic mutation will have a hidden or a cult cancer present so it's important that surgery is done properly. >> and angelina jolie emphasized this was the right decision for her. for many people the age factor comes in. >> it's a huge factor and this is an individual decision. we don't have consensus about when this should be done. we hear the age of 35. we hear 40. obviously it has to be done at the end of childbearing because it places a woman into immediate menopause. a personal decision. >> we keep talking about women. you emphasize it's not just women. >> men can carry this too. a woman with this has a 50% chance of passing it to her children. so there are some important tips, first of all if you have ovarian cancer in the family, get this blood test. it will be covered if you meet criteria. secondly, try to speak with a genetic counselor. this is genetic risk assessment and this is helpful. if you could speak to a gyn cancer surgeon before your
7:11 am
surgery that's helpful. remember, there are options. the birth control pill also lowers the risk of ovarian cancer and 30% of women choose not to have surgery. it's an important option. >> great suggestions you discussed with us. thank you. robin, thanks. jen will have much more at our website. in the meantime, we turn to that threat against president obama's niece. a call claiming a gunman was on campus just before she took the court for the princeton in their ncaa game against maryland. pierre thomas has more. >> reporter: that was a scary call and the latest unfortunate sign of our times where any threat must be taken seriously. the disturbing call came into university of maryland's police at 3:00 p.m. monday afternoon. the caller suggested there would be a man on campus with a gun possibly targeting the president's niece who plays on princeton's women's basketball team. and the president had just been to princeton's tournament game this past saturday. security increased for the game
7:12 am
as authorities checked out the call. later police determined the threat was unsubstantiated and our sources tell us they do not believe there was a credible threat. the secret service will likely do a follow-up to determine whether this was simply a misunderstanding or hoax. after the game princeton's coach told reporters she did not inform the president's niece leslie robinson before tip-off she was was clearly frustrated that the game and season had been marred by the bogus threat. >> the first question we get 31-1 in the ncaa tournament is about a freak -- college park police have that under control. leslie is safe. >> reporter: the game took place without incident and thankfully the only news is that the ladies on both teams played their hearts out and princeton's undefeated season ended. >> all right, pierre, thank you. we'll move to politics and texas senator ted cruz as you know kicking off his campaign for the white house. appealing to conservatives. abc's jon karl went one-on-one with cruz right after he launched his
7:13 am
presidential run. had a chance to talk to him. >> sure did. ted cruz is about as conservative as they come but there is one way he wants to be exactly like president obama, he wants to make the journey directly from freshman in the senate to the white house. when it comes to the 2016 presidential campaign, texas senator ted cruz wants to be not just the first in but the most conservative too. >> imagine millions of courageous conservatives all across america rising up together to say in unison, we demand our liberty. >> reporter: his big speech tried to be both hard line conservative and optimistic. even echoing the refrain of the great john lennon song "imagine." >> imagine it's 1776. imagine it's 1933. imagine, imagine -- i want to ask each of you to imagine. >> imagine, imagine, imagine. are you a big john lennon fan? >> i am but i --
7:14 am
>> reporter: very different message than john lennon's? >> i did envision pulling out john lennon little round glasses but i didn't bring any to the talk. the room was electric. there were 12,000 people. they were energized. >> reporter: energized but required to attend. it was a school convocation and our interview cruz said he would appeal beyond the right wing. how are you with that hard line conservative message going to appeal to moderates and independents? nobody gets elected without appealing to them. >> it's a funny thing when you work in the media that it is a hard line to present a positive optimistic vision. my speech today talked about imagining in america that gets back to the free market principles and the constitutional liberties this country was built on. >> reporter: cruz acknowledges he comes into the race as an underdog but will run as an insurgent. taking on not just liberals but also republican leaders who he
7:15 am
says have gone easy on barack obama. >> the race is on. appreciate it, jon. now to amy with the other top stories right now starting with new spying allegations against a u.s. ally. >> that's right. this morning israel is denying allegations that it spied on u.s. nuclear talks with iran. the claims first reported in "the wall street journal" accuse israel of eavesdropping on the closed door talks and sharing details with members of congress in hopes of undermining any deal with iran but israeli government officials today claim those allegations are false. the obama administration's relationship with israel is already strained. just yesterday prime minister benjamin netanyahu apologized for his divisive comments about arabs before last week's election. back here at home police say they have found nothing to prove the explosive claim of gang rape at the university of virginia. "rolling stone" first reported that claim that a student named jackie was assaulted at a fraternity party. the article was later discredited. all uva fraternities were shut down for a time after that
7:16 am
article was published. the accused frat now says it's exploring its legal options. in raleigh, north carolina, investigators say construction workers dismantling scaffolding on this high-rise when a piece of it fell sending three workers 200 feet to their deaths. another worker survived. he was found on top of some crushed equipment and is in remarkably fair condition. a police officer in maryland is okay after this crash. responding to a call when he clipped an suv landing up against that poll. people eager to hit the beach along the gulf coast may want to look away from this. look at this school of sharks, caught on camera swimming toward louisiana, hundreds of them from an oil platform and scientists say this migration is typical. finally, to stop a thief, give them what they want. a man in california posted this note on his door for the thief who has been repeatedly stealing his newspaper for the past ten
7:17 am
years but the message wasn't what you think. he offered to share it but said this offer is contingent upon the newspaper being returned in a relative crisp state with no coffee stains and he'd like it back by 10:00 or 11:00 that same morning. what happened? well, his newly installed video surveillance shows the thief came, read the note and decided not to steal the paper this time. he hasn't been back since. also in the note the man asked if he had stock tips if he wouldn't mind leaving them. apparently he didn't have any but problem solved. >> just leave a note. >> that doesn't work in my neighborhood. >> leave a note? >> no. >> please don't steal my paper. >> bypass the note altogether. >> thanks for bringing that to us. >> now to the weather. severe storms replacing the snow. wind, hail. >> we've had such a slow start to tornado season. less than 100 tornadoes below average for this date. so now it's time to warm it all up. i want to remind everybody,
7:18 am
severe weather has a definition. you can't just call any severe weather, it has to be damaging wind of 60 plus miles per hour or greater. one plus inch hail or greater and, of course, you can see a tornado is possible. in the areas you have to look out for the damaging wind and hail go from st. louis back to tulsa, oklahoma, and then tomorrow, that area spreads out from southern illinois back to wichita falls, texas. especially in that highlighted area there through parts of oklahoma. all right.

good morning, america. and right now, a plane with more than 140 passengers crashes in the french alps. france's president already saying there are likely no survivors. also right now, millionaire heir robert durst is now being linked to a nearly 45-year-old cold case in vermont. seaworld strikes back this morning. the park launching a new campaign helping to fight the wave of abuse allegations. we do say, good morning, america, on this tuesday morning. good to have david in for george and right to that top story. >> breaking news this morning. and it's a passenger plane that went down in the alps, more than 140 passengers on board. it's believed and abc's david kerley who covers aviation is standing by with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, david. the wreckage ashas been spotted.
7:31 am
this is the second airbus to crash in recent months. this jetliner was on a flight to duesle dofr when it went down in the southern alps. it was carrying 144 passengers and a crew of six. the leaders of france and spain say there are no survivors and the passengers of citizens of spain, germany and turkey. the wreckage is difficult to reach. it's a remote area near a popular ski area. it took off around 10:00 a.m. local time from barcelona. about 40 minutes into the flight it slightly changes course to the left and starts losing altitude. now the a-320 moves from 38,000 feet to just 6,800 feet over several minutes. according to the last radar hit recorded by flight radar 24. that seems to be following emergency procedures. a quicker than normal decent but appears in control. it's a budget carrier and it is
7:32 am
a subsidiary of luftanza that's had this aircraft since 1991. they called this a dark day. germanwings has changed its logo taking out all the color leaving gray and black only. i spent some time in a simulator recently. there are several backup safety systems on this aircraft and this is very early. from what we know so far, it would appear that the pilots had a problem, they followed the procedures to get lower and change direction but then something they couldn't overcome. robin. now to the latest on robert durst. the accused killer is still behind bars this morning after he was denied bail in a dramatic hearing and now we're learning police in vermont are investigating a possible link between durst and another cold case. abc's matt gutman has that story. >> reporter: this morning, police in middlebury, vermont, confirming a link between robert durst and yet another missing person. 18-year-old lynne schulze disappeared 44 years ago and while durst's lawyer tells abc
7:33 am
news he's seen no evidence linking him to the case, the connection coming just hours after the millionaire murder suspect was denied bail in a new orleans courtroom monday. durst appeared frail, his head shaved, exposing a scar but the d.a. says there's no doubt he's a flight risk and a danger to others. >> we're not surprised by that at all. >> reporter: sensing the lapd was tracking him in houston, prosecutors say durst slipped out of his luxury condo driving this toyota camry registered to an unidentified man. and later checked into this new orleans hotel using one of his 11 aliases, not knowing which one the fbi arrests him only after bumping into him in the lobby. in his room police say they found a stash of $42,000 and they say he sent himself a care package with shoes, clothes and another $117,000. also in court yesterday durst's attorney demanding the removal of former westchester county d.a. jeanine pirro.
7:34 am
saying he may want to question her because she's been participating in the dogging of mr. durst for year, >> the "b" is exactly the same. son of a [ bleep ]. >> reporter: in 2000 she re-opened the case for the disappearance of his first wife kathy. on "the jinx" durst and his lawyers claim she has a vendetta against him. >> i never heard the d.a. made me do it. >> reporter: for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, new orleans. >> all right, thanks. joining us is jeanine pirro from "justice with jeanine." always great to have you on the program. >> thank you. >> you flew back last night. great to have you. you have investigated robert durst for many, many years and so you were in that courtroom yesterday. what's with the effort to try to get you kicked out? >> apparently i kicked the beehive in 2000 when i re-opened the cold case of missing kathleen durst, the wife of robert durst obviously a very wealthy man at the time and i didn't feel the case was investigated properly.
7:35 am
i re-opened it and, yes, i have been investigating this case for a long time. when we were about to speak to susan berman, all of a sudden the woman is shot execution style in the back of the head then he gets arrested for killing another man and said he had to chop him out because i was chasing him. >> and he was acquitted. >> the jury bought it and said this poor guy because she was chasing him and investigating him, no one would believe he was really innocent so he had to chop up the body. got rid of the head which had all of the evidence indicating whether it was self-defense or murder so yesterday i go into the courtroom and i'm about to cover it for fox and within a minute of the defense attorney seeing me, you know, he has emotional reaction to me for whatever reason, said i want her out of the courtroom and the judge said why? he said, because i want to call her as a witness. >> didn't work. you walked back in with a faint of a smile on your face. >> yes, i did. you know, i think that before
7:36 am
this dick degeurin gets an emotional reaction he has to check the statutes in the constitution because both of them allowed me in that courtroom and the attempt to silence me has been going on for a long time. >> so let's get to the evidence because we saw you in that clip from "the jinx." millions watched it and saw -- heard not only the audio but the handwriting matching and saw your reaction in "the jinx." do you think this will be permissible and how powerful will it be? >> i think it will definitely be permissible. as a judge i rule on that kind of stuff and i think it will be powerful. what andrew jarecki and marc smerling did in "the jinx," that key evidence is the exact same handwriting of the cadaver note which only the killer could have written and even durst says it and durst's own handwriting he sent to susan berman so i think it's a powerful, powerful piece of evidence. a jury will look at it.
7:37 am
it doesn't require that anyone have an expert to interpret it. it's real. it's there. >> all right, promise to come back and keep us posted on the case. >> yes, if i get out of new orleans next time. >> thanks. over to ginger zee and the forecast this morning, hey, ging. >> 5.8 inches of snow fell in chicago. it looks pretty if it weren't this late in march. it's actually the most snow we've seen this late in march since 1982 and guess what, everybody, back to minnesota, wisconsin, where they have places up to 15 inches of snow in that same system, more coming your way. there's a series of systems that bring the rockies much-needed winter weather but right there from southern minnesota up through northern iowa and western wisconsin you'll get another couple of inches. this is through thursday. >> good morning, i am meteorologist mike nicco with a stray shower possible inland today and freezey along the cost this afternoon and 60s there. the rest of us in the upper 60s to mid-70s the seven-day
7:38 am
forecast is dry after today record highs on thursday and >> all this weather brought to you by the u.p.s. store. i found the one person so happy about the snow in chicago. ah! seagull. >> or he's screaming. >> good point. >> all right, thank you two. we've always been told breakfast is the most important meal of the day. why eating certain cereal may add years to your life. seaworld fighting back against its critics. how the theme park is defending the way it treats its animals. we'll be right back. we'll be right back. \ \ \ s s eg

8:45 am
freaked out by the whole thing and didn't know how to handle it and so i would just lock myself in my house and then go to work. i should have educated myself. i should have been more proactive and after leaving qvc and realizing that now it was up to me if something happened then i started to educate myself more and take more control of my own destiny. >> when you've had so many over the last 20 years various ones and, again, i know you don't want to give them attention, you don't want to talk name names nor should you but to let people know some of -- like there was somebody who came to one of your colleague's hopes and had a wedding ring strapped to his chest. >> yeah. and that's just so bizarre. i mean this was a case where we had gone to court for this issue before. i had had to testify in front of the court, that's really scary to have to do that even with the

8:47 am
tremendous loyal following, after 0 years you left. >> yeah. >> was this the reason why? >> this was not the reason i left. it was one of the factors that led to the overall list because i think eventually you just look at it and say, okay here are all the factors. it's been 20 years, i truly felt that it was time to go. >> what does the future hold for you. >> this point i'm just taking a in interto breathe. i have been sleeping in in the mornings and i just lay there. >> what's it like in it's not going to be forever because definitely there are going to be things in nye future and i'm not retired. >> qvc! lisa robertson. >> break outsinging star
