"today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us with details on why that plane went down in the first place and what the pilot was saying as the plane crashed. it's dramatic video. >> you ask yourself how to you survive that crashing into the cold pacific waters? it's hard to believe the two people did survive and it is thanks in part to the friends who shot this video as it was happening off the coast of half moon bay. two planes were midair for a photo shoot when one plane lost power and while the pilot of that plane, david lesch, called in a may day, the other pilot kept rolling and circling the crash site and calling for help, not knowing at that point whether lesch and his passenger were okay. it turns out they were okay. this is them documenting what was happening on a waterproof phone to the relief of the pilot who watched that plane go wn. >> we're floating around now in the [ muted ] pacific ocean. i'm holding onto my window shade as a floatation device.

free to go. a day after the white house said talk of a payroll tax cut was not true, president trump said he's interested in a payroll tax cut though he says it's not because the economy is in trouble. >> payroll taxes, i've been think being payroll taxes for a long time. whether or not we do it now or not is, it's not being done because of recession, because we are legitimately, if we had a cut in interest rates by the fed, if they would do their job properly, and if they would do a meaningful cut, because they raised too fast, you coup woo see growth like you've not seen ever in this country. >> president trump walking a very narrow path. he wants more tax cuts, he wants an interest rate cut to boost the economy but he says the economy is doing fine. we get the fed minutes describing the most recent rate cut later today. palo alto's mysterious company palantir has gotten a
