water, parts of the plane, victims are being pulled from the water this morning. investigators are looking for answers about what went wrong. we have early clues. victims were not wearing life jackets and the plane appears to be largely intact. >> we have full team coverage beginning with terry moran. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, amy. good evening from here. and as darkness falls, this is now a recovery operation. but one that has been paused because of heavy weather in the crash area. teams were out there all day collecting debris and bodies. and for the families, they were expecting the worst. but when the worst came, it was agony. in the waters of the java sea, the pieces of wreckage were clearly visible. some had red and white markings like the missing inging inging airasia
plane. it was a shattering sight. gone no longer missing. their loved ones are gone now. here, the moment a woman learns that bodies have been found in the water. 162 men, women and children aboard that flight. so many left behind, heartbroken. medical teams were rushed in to help those overcome by grief. this morning in the bright tropical sun searchers and local fishermen spotted the wreckage in the water. divers went in to recover bodies. none had life prevers on,ing officials confirmed. about six miles from the last point of contact with the plane in shah low waters about 100 feet deep. an emergency exit door and other pieces were found and under the water, the shadow of a plane could be made out. suggesting the aircraft was more or less intact when it hit the water. now the investigation begins and the grief deepens.
there is a silver lining for investigators in all of this. this plane came down in shah lowllow waters. they are confident, aviation experts are, that they will find the crucial black boxes. >> that is a key point. now that the wrackage has been found, they can begin to solve the mystery of what brought the plane down. and david kerley is here with that part of the story. >> reporter: along with the grim task of recovering bodies the physical detective work begins now. everything from the surface and the bomb of the ocean can produce clues as to what happened to flight 8501. how will this debris? corpses provide clues? burn marks, there was a fire. and serial numbers to identify the aircraft. the lack of life prevreservers could
suggest there was not time to community to passengers. if the debris field is narrow it hit the water largely intact. if it's wider, spread out, that's a breakup in the air and the pieces rained down. the a-320 requested to climb to 38,000 feet. but even severe turbulence should not damage an aircraft. jet makers put planes through a series much stress tests so they can stand up to a battering. so what happened at 32,000 feet? the weather may have been a factor but there may have been system failures. could be catastrophic because of the actions by the pilots. >> in different conditions maybe the crew is taking inappropriate actions the airplane that lead to further problems. which they failed to correct. >> reporter: 447, the air france
crash over the atlantic they dnd realize it was flying too slowly. there was incorrect information, and it stalled and fell to earth. >> an airplane will stall and get into a high rate of decent with the nose still up. that's what happened with the airbus a-330 in air france. >> reporter: how do we know? the black boxes. the batteries last 30 days. we have lost three days. the scramble is on. once found at the ntsb black box lab, they will remove computer chips. providing not only the audio recording, but information about the systems and information from the crew. the indonesians are just asked the u.s. to help. they will need help with the
investigation. a lab to extract the vital information. first they have to find them. the pingers in about a hundred feet of water, it's not that deep. we have lost three days amy, but that gives 27 days to find the boxes. >> thanks so much. and let's bring in search steven ganyard. they have found a lot, notably a shadow that looks as if the plane is large intact. what does that tell you about what may have at 32,000 feet? >> it's intriguing amy. think of this now as a crime scene investigation. every piece of debris where it is condition it is in tells the investigators or gives clues to what happened. and david was talking about the debris field, it's very important. if there's a shadow that looks like an airplane it would suggest that the airplane came down slowly.
maybe in a stall, mushing to the ground 100, 150 miles an hour. didn't hit at a high rate of speed that would disperse debris. look at the big pieces. is there a fuselage there? are both wings ss attached? it will tell you something different than if there's just one wing. we need to get to the black boxes which will reveal all the information we need. >> if it was a stall and a slow decent was there a possibility of survivors as it hit the ocean as in the miracle on the hudson? >> no it's not that slow. not a controlled ditching where the pilot had time to slowly fly the airplane into the ocean. this could have been a violent, unsurviveable event. >> we're told the most dangerous time is takeoff and landing. in midair that's the safest
time. but these incidents this year have given us major pause about that advice. >> you're exactly right. and we don't have answers now. but well have answers soon. the key here is in the safety investigation. find out what went wrong and make sure that it never happens again. >> all right, we appreciate it. so much. we will cover this story all day long on abc news and abcnews.com. and just days before the gop takes control on capitol hill one of the party's top leaders is acknowledging that he gave a speech to a hate group more than a decade ago. go to washington now and jon karl. this is not what republicans need at a time when they're trying to win over minorities. >> that's for sure dan. and this looks bad. the person in question here is steve alaska steve scalise, the third-highest
ranking republican inngress. he spoke before a group that was started by a neo-nazi david duke down in louisiana. now his office is saying, and he was saying when he spoke to the group he did not realize what their views were. did not realize how objectionable they were. he said he has never been affiliated with the abhorrent group in question. the hate-fueled ignorance is in stark contradiction to what mr. scalise believes. it's to be seen if that's good enough. we have reached out to john boehner on this no comment yet. >> can he keep his place as the number three in the house of representatives. this is not the only breaking story with the republican party. michael grimm is going to resign after pleading guilty to tax evasion. can you tell us about that?
>> reporter: soon to be former congressman grimm is more likely to be in prison than congress. this is the guy who threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony earlier this year. he it looks like will not be coming back to congress. >> he vowed he will not resign. but speaker boehner may have convinced him otherwise. thank you for waryour reporting. an icy blast moving across the country, sending temperatures plunging as we get ready to celebrate the new year. it is the coldest weather of the year in some places. >> that is true. pastadena pasadena the rose parade, could be the coldest we have seen in a hundred yards. looking for a record there. literally freezing. and winter weather advisories, snowing on the las vegas strip. winter is digging deep from

dr. richard besser is here. is part of the reason that the vaccine is a poor match strain of the flu out there? >> i don't think that's what's going on. but there's something unusual with the flu. for the past four years it's peaking at the end of december. it used to be that flu didn't have the rise until february or early march. but it's been coming earlier and earlier and hitting during the holiday season. >> i mentioned the vaccine is not a great match, is it still worth getting a flu shot? >> i think it is. this year you're right. the flu strain that's out there causing disease is not the one that's in the vaccine. but there may be some level of cross protection. we won't know that until march or april. should provide some protection. it's the best thing to do to cut down your risk. >> you're protecting yourself and people around you. one last question we spoke to at least one doctor who said he worried that the strain is particularly dangerous for
children. you don't share that view why not? >> the flu is always dangerous for children. on an average year 100 children die. this year 15. it's worth protecting your kids. >> appreciate it. and other news overnight, over to ryan for a look at the headlines. >> good morning dan, amy. we begin with the dramatic rescue. a man becoming trapped in his suv after crashing into this canal in phoenix. look at that. his suv on its side. he was holding on to the steering wheel for his life. his face barely above the cold water when they arrived and pulled him out with just seconds to spare. and breaking details overnight about the ferry disaster in europe. at least ten people have been killed in the fire and rescue effort off greece. and word that a sailor who was stabilizing had been killed in the accident. confusion remains about how many people may be missing. a street protest in los angeles remained peaceful
