7:14 am
reported as i did in my blog in '08 that i was on the aircraft behind the one that was hit. it was not -- because i knew we had all come under fire i guess i had assumed that all of the airframes took some damage because we all went down. >> reporter: williams appears to be at a loss to explain how he eventually got its so wrong. >> if it's very basic. i would not have chosen to make this mistake. i don't know what screwup in my mind caused me to conflate one aircraft from the other. >> why? why, bri? why bri. >> jon stewart weighing in. nothing further from williams or nbc news pending an internal fact-checking review. >> thanks very much. to michael. boy, tension on the streets of

7:40 am
that mother nature can throw at you, the key to all of this and these conditions as my frost nipped ears have shown getting owl of the elements as quickly as possible. the heat is just whipped off your face your scalp hurt ears as well. ow. that really hurts. in this climatic wind tunnel outside of detroit, every day is a nor'easter. >> it can simulate truly extreme conditions and jack it up to minus 40 degrees and 150-mile-per-hour winds. >> let's turn the switch on. >> reporter: engineers making the nastiest weather possible and hurling them at these cars. >> you cannot be out here and not get frostbite in more than five minutes. better traction for sure but once you lose traction on ice, it doesn't matter how many
7:41 am
wheels are spinning. this tunnel allows engineers to test a car like this to see how it will react in the most extreme weather conditions. but what it can't tell is how humans will react when they're facing with the unthinkable. last month a wisconsin man drives his truck onto lake winnebago. ice i thought would hold. also this winter this truck goes bumper deep into a frozen new hampshire lake. how did these men surviv we're about to show you by crashing this perfectly good car into this frozen lake. what kind of maniac does that? let's back up. our morning started at a garage belonging to the indiana state police. outfitting this vehicle with gopro cameras and scuba tanks. so did the electricity work? >> i drove it here actually. >> reporter: so what do i need to know about this? >> don't touch your cell phone and remember fourwords. seat belt windows, children, out.
7:42 am
>> here >> don't touch your cell phone because that will only waste time. you have about a minute and the window is the fastest way out. now, i remember gordon's mantra seat belt window children out. in this case no kids so alone i squeeze out the driver's side window. so you might want to get on the top there. >> the car sinking, time is running out. >> so what would you do? >> get to shore. >> i would jump. >> which i do but i land a little short. but remember an earlier lesson i kick and pull myself to safety. so what we showed you in the piece was getting out of a car with a functioning window but what if the electric tri can
7:43 am
yous out and car starts to sink. you can use pretty much anything to break down the window. the key is to use something hard. this is a puncher that the indiana state police guys absolutely love so what we'll do is cover my face press it against the window and smash the window clear it out. make sure there's no glass and then you go out there.ething like this is absolutely key to trying to get out of a window. try not to cut yourself. >> the puncher is something every single one of us should have in our car. >> a great idea to have. it doesn't have to be this brand. this is called a rescue me but any of these brands do the key as something that will cut through that glass quickly and without getting yourself hurt and you can hang it like here so lots of different ways to use these little tools, lara. >> all critical tips. matt thanks so much for taking one for the team. thank you. coming up big dramaen 0

8:50 am
together. that's part of what we wanted to see this short cycle of human beings. kids obviously change drastically in nose 12 years but so do i. >> for you as a woman in hollywood, it was wonderful, patricia to see that and for that to be embraced. >> i wanted to do that. you know i wanted to show that. i think it's natural. it's beautiful. i think other women want to see that. i think people are really longing for that reality. >> but we were saying and i was watching with friends and, you know there's a lot of dialogue and a lot of driving. oh there's going to be a car crash. and then you realize you're the ordinary is extraordinary. >> that's exactly it. that's exactly it. that's what richard wanted to do with this movie and it was really a big gamble that he took because everything in film tells you audiences don't want to see that. and this year so many small films sold at sundance because of this movie. >> you talk about richard, we're talking about the director.

8:52 am
like that especially with the way rick wanted to tell it a real love letter to the middle class and to go against all those obvious dramatic you know constructs we're used to in film and show how beautiful life is normal life. i've had so many people call me after the movie, so many boys called their mom and apologized and people told me they decided not to get divorced. that they changed their relationship. people have been so moved but all over the world and also i think sometimes in other countries people see americans by our governmental choices, don't really feel who we are as people. and this movie, it's been really interesting to see internationally how people are like wow, you're really the same as us. >> yeah. it has resonated with people around the world, well said. hey, see you out there in l.a. at the oscars in a couple of weeks. >> yeah. >> congratulations on your nomination. >> i know crazy. >> thanks for making time for us right now. you can see "boyhood" in theaters on v.o.d., dvd and
