well. north in looking at a smooth drive. no drama through the area. >> there you go. >> i think so. >> more local news in 30 minutes. have a great morning. c3 >> buenos días.
7:01 am
we're live at the courthouse. and down to a dozen. basketball's march madness in the home stretch as the nation's top seed gets revenge. with an exclamation point as ucla and gonzaga get set to face off today, friday, march 27, 2015. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. 7:00 in the morning out on the west coast. we've got a lot going on. let's get to our top story, disturbing new information about the co-pilot who prosecutors say intentionally crashed that plane in the french alps. >> there is evidence that not only he was suffering from an illness but that he ignored a doctor's note to miss work on
7:02 am
the very day of the crash. he's got this investigation covered from germany to france and also on the possible changes this could lead to for airlines. katy tur we want to start with you and what prosecutors are saying. good morning. >> reporter: prosecutors have released findings of what they were able to find within his childhood home, also his dusseldorf apartment. they did not find evidence of a suicide note, no evidence that he was claiming responsibility for this crash. also no evidence of religious or political affiliation. they did find evidence that he was suffering an illness, they wouldn't say what sort of illness, but german media is widely reporting he was suffering from depression. they found doctors notes, excusing him from work including a doctor's note excuseing him from work the day that he crashed that plane officials say. they say that he was not supposed to be at work that day, and that he was defying a doctor's order.
7:03 am
also that he was hiding all of this from his employer, that's why lufthansa did not see evidence of this. the co-workers never told officials they saw evidence of this, there was no report that something seemed to be wrong with him before this crash. >> i know you are there in his hometown talking to people. what are they saying about this young man? >> reporter: much the same, that they didn't see anything wrong, that he was polite, fun, we spoke to the neighbors. they were shocked. we spoke to the people that knew him from his flight club he joined. he was nice, enjoyed flying. they didn't see evidence of depression but those close to him we're hearing did see evidence of depression including a potential crisis in his personal life, potential issue or breakup with a girlfriend. nbc news has not been able to confirm that but that's what's being reported here in german media. they are also going to look at the training he was training, a break from his training in 2009
7:04 am
for some time, they are going to look at why he took this break, for how long and how serious it was. right now they are trying to find out if the this was all premeditated or if he just decided to crash this plane in the middle of this flight. >> either way, devastating consequences. katy tur on the investigation, thank you. >> let us turn to keir simmons near the crash site in france. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. wear hearing that the families of the victims have given a dna sample to help in the identification process. the fbi has launched its own independent investigation because three of the victims were american, also because of reports that the co-pilot received some training in america. we hear that the family of the co-pilot are here in france. andreas lubitz suffering from a crisis according to german newspapers. on the mountain in france the
7:05 am
remains of the 14 nun people he allegedly killed covered by yellow tarps, a pain staking search for clues and identify the victims. >> everything that can help us. >> reporter: personal possessions, jewelry, clothes. >> that's it. >> reporter: among the relatives were the co-pilot's family pulled aside and told he caused the crash. and an immediate consequence following america's lead assuring two people are always in the cockpit. lubitz locked the door, the prosecutor says, using controls like those seen in this airbus video. disabling the door's key pad, preventing his fellow pilot from reentering. the black boxle reveals-y programmed the plane's deadly decent. recorded the screams of passengers in the final minutes. they were innocent people this relative said. if lubitz was ill the company should have been aware.
7:06 am
the families were brought to the bottom of the mountain. >> this may be as close as they can get. their loved ones final resting place. stars and stripes for the three americans killed, the third victim robert oliver, named last night. the european airlines now adopting the two people in the cockpit rule, airlines from norway, iceland and the canadian transportation minister says airlines there will adopt that rule from now on but matt, it's too late for the people on board the flight that crashed in the mountains behind me. >> keir simmons, thank you very much. greg is a former ntsb investigator, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> so what we're hearing from these investigators is that this guy hid an illness from his employer, although they are not saying what that illness was. that he had a doctor's notes
7:07 am
excusing him from work or shouldn't work that every covered the day he intentionally crashed this the plane. the take away is if a pilot has a physical or mental condition, it doesn't seem that hard to hide it from an airline. >> that's right, matt, because the medical examiner that typically does these medicals even in the united states is not an employee of the company. and in this case lufthansa or germanwings, so this pilot would go in, he has his own personal physician which is separate from his ame or his aeromedical physical so his personal physician will prescribe drugs and do examinations and develop findings that aren't necessarily reported either to his ame and not reported unless the pilot does so, to the company. >> and that's the way it is here in the united states. a pilot goes through a physical and emotional evaluation before getting hired. once they are on the payroll it's the honor system, isn't it.
7:08 am
>> absolutely. and it's self-policing. so if a pilot is taking, in this case if this young man was taking any kind of prescription medicine for this issue of depression, he may or may not have reported that. here in the united states same thing. there is a list of banned drugs by the faa you must self-disclose, at least that's what the regulation says. i investigated accidents where pilots have not disclosed medical conditions and the use of prescribed drugs. >> this is a rare instance this pilot may not have disclosed this to an airline because of nefarious reasons but on an everyday basis it's because pilots don't want to be taken out or be docked or lose status. >> absolutely. and in this case it may be a medical condition that could permanently ground this young man, and given what his neighbors and his family said about his passion to fly if it takes him out of the cockpit that is going to be a major life altering event and that could be
7:09 am
the core, but then as has been reported at least early on, that if he had a breakup and other life altering event this could have been a conglomeration of all of those coming together. >> greg, as always, thank you. this is clearly the exception to the rule. but unfortunately, when you talk about an airline pilot exception can cost the lives of 150 or 217 or 104 people as we've seen. >> people are trying to find a solution. sometimes there isn't one. closer to home we have groups working to put out hot spots a it the site of that building explosion and collapse here in new york city. rehema ellis is at the scene. what is the latest there? >> reporter: what i can tell you is that authorities now say 25 people have been injured, four critical in this massive powerful explosion that leveled one building and two others collapsed, we're also hearing authorities say two people are unaccounted for, one the family of a 23-year-old man who say he
7:10 am
was dining in a restaurant of the building that collapsed, the other a worker in that restaurant. authorities are now investigating whether a gas leak was responsible for the explosion. the collapse caught on camera in manhattan's east village thursday afternoon, the first of three buildings to go down. >> we have a major building collapse on second avenue. >> reporter: after firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire that quickly escalated to a seven-alarm fire. >> i ran out and i saw glass all the way across the street. >> reporter: 250 firefighters from at least 50 units were on scene, trying to control the blaze that quickly engulfed the five-story building. housing more than two dozen residential units and a restaurant. one man caught on tape helping a woman down from a fire escape right before firefighters arrived. the collapse came less than an
7:11 am
hour after the fire began. flames quickly spread to neighboring structures as crewed worked to contain the fire that new york city mayor bill de blasio says was possibly caused by plumbing and gas work. >> we are praying that no other individuals are found injured and that there are no fatalities. >> reporter: authorities now say dozens of firefighters are still working here at this scene of what they call it's still a very active fire situation. savannah, back to you. >> thank you very much. natalie is on assignment. sheinelle has big news. >> good morning. senator harry reid of nevada who led democrats since 2005 announced he will not seek re-election. in a youtube video the 75-year-old said he wants to go out on top of his game. earlier this year reid suffered a serious injury during an accident. he served three decades in

7:34 am
the cockpit, then made an emergency landing in amarillo. experts say identifying a potential psychological issue in any one can be very difficult. >> the idea now that a full psychological work-up would somehow clue you in to which pilots are going to do things like this, it's fiction. >> while pilots don't go through regular psychological evaluation the airline pilots association is insisting that there is a peer review process constantly with fellow crew members and managers keeping an eye out for unusual behavior since nobody wants to fly with somebody who is unstable, everybody has a vested interest. >> thank you. if you don't see each other every day the nature of this work is that you don't necessarily work with the same people every day. >> exactly right. that mysterious kidnapping out of california gets stranger. a woman reportedly taken from her home, showed up two days later. while police say it's a hoax,

9:02 am
you needed on to be in that chair. >> i have a ritual and my wife will -- she takes the face washout of the shower and washes her face. then i have to do things in a particular order. i have to wash my hair and wash my face and do the body wash thing. i do the whole thing. sometimes i have to get out if the face wash is out of the shower i have to open the door. it throws off my whole thing. we are so happy to have you both here. we know a lot about you and learn more about this. a little bit later, we have a fun show planned. in the news the big story remains. the crash of germanwings 9525
9:03 am
and the investigation into the copilot,an dre ans lubitz and they said they found evidence in the apartment. let's go to katy in germany with the latest on the investigation. >> reporter: the prosecutors were able to investigate both the home of lubitz and his apartment in dusseldorf. they did not find any evidence of a suicide note or a note claiming responsibility. they found no evidence of religious or political affiliation, but they did find significant evidence that he was suffering for an illness. they couldn't say which illness. the german media has been reporting for the past day he was suffering from depression. they found doctors notes recent and a doctor's note excusing him from work the day of the crash that means he was not supposed to be working the day of the
9:04 am
crash. they found evidence that he was hiding this from his employer. that would coincide with what we heard from lufthansa and german wings that they had no evidence of anything wrong with him. they didn't see anything wrong with them and what we were hearing from those two and the flight club that he was a part of they didn't see anything wrong with him. they are looking to see if they can find any other motivation and any evidence that this was premedicated. tamron? >> thank you very much for the latest information. this raises the question that a lot of people asked with lester holt and the developments and his name was released in the background who would fly our planes. right now in the united states new pilot applications undergo background checks with full psychological work ups. in germany and the u.s. once the pilot has the job, that does not include a mental
9:05 am
evaluation. >> a lot happens over the course of a career that you could start changing. it's almost like that test needs to be every year or couple of years. >> it makes sense to have that be an updated thing. life is a roller coaster and it goes up and down and your mental state from one moment to the next needs to be constantly checked if you are in charge of other people's lives. >> it's a tough one that you have with mental health experts. if this leads to discrimination against people who have mental health issues. just because you suffer from depression doesn't mean you are homicidal or suicidal. there other jobs where people are responsible for a great number of lives. these are serious questions including the thing that was startling to me. someone can lock the cockpit door and overhide everything and prohibit or present someone from
9:06 am
getting inside. >> it's incredible. the looks are in place to prevent somebody coming in and announcing to have the pilot be the one. >> the back up that the pilot can get in. >> a code or something. some combination lock. >> or the universal procedure that a pilot or copilot cannot be alone in the cockpit. that's the parent company of germanwings that they were not changing their policy that allowed for one individual to be in the cockpit with the aviation expert. he said he believes that lufthansa will likely change as well as norwegian airlines. they changed their policy and in the united states there is a policy that you can't be alone. >> crazy story. >> kind of a turn here. we face a lot of our shopping and restaurants going on online reviews.
9:07 am
online owners and owners of the retail shops are fighting back when they feel some of this is user unfair. this happened and someone is being sued over a bad review. she got a bad review from a former client and angie's list. she said it negatively impacted her business. she is doing her $65,000 cleaning defamation. they are allowing businesses to respond, but you can say whatever you want as long as you are not lying. the issue here i travel a lot for work and the first thing i do when i'm in a town i'm not familiar with i yelp a couple of restaurants. i don't go to the places that have bad reviews. simple as that. maybe that place should step it up and not do bad. >> i don't know if it's a vendetta or a friend saying it's great, but it's someone who is
9:08 am
padding the numbers. i don't know what to think. >> i'm thinking now, is it possible for actors to sue critics? that's a whole new opportunity. >> have you had a showdown with a critic. >> this is maybe an opportunity to hire legal representation and deal with them. come on. that's how we go. >> with twitter and all that people can say whatever they want. the people they are talking about are negatively affected. >> sometimes they do not know the rule and they can't lie, but who is policing whether or not they are lying or not? >> it's like now we need another department to review the reviews. >> it's like that's how it's going to go. >> i do like this dog owner or groomer, her business is top notch. she is fighting to protect it.
