7:01 am
neck and neck with derek and nastia. redfoo was sent packing, right here on "gma." good morning, america. rumor has it that you're in for george stephanopoulos. >> all week long. >> that's the truth. no rumor -- >> where is robin? >> came back and, boy, what a day to come back. we have a lot of breaking news to get to. >> we'll get to it right off the top. a crowded passenger plane crashing in the french alps and lama hasan will start us off. lama what do we know? >> reporter: good morning to you, david. well this news just coming in to us. according to french officials including the french prime minister who just moments ago spoke, confirming an airbus a320 a german wings plane carrying 142 passengers with two
7:02 am
pilots and we understand four crew members has crashed in the southern french alps. at this point there are reports it was traveling from bars lonecelona to dustle dorff. and this is just coming in so we don't know at this point, the breakdown of nationalities, we don't know where the passengers are from at this point. david in as you point out at least 142 passengers and as you heard lama say we don't know the nationalities as of yet. we want to bring in john nance, a pilot himself with us on the phone. john you know these a320s. how difficult are they to fly. >> very easy to fly. one of the most ubiquitous airliners with the 736. 6,100 in operation and 5,000 more on order and really is a world standard so this is in the air all the time someplace every day. >> a lot of experience flying them. word this morning, 6300 feet
7:03 am
flying over the alps difficult to navigate. >> we do have alps going up to 13,000 feet and 6800 feet tells me it is a routing around them or an altitude you wouldn't think they would be at. we have so little info it's hard to >> john we have a map with the flight path right now up on the screen and we believe this was going from barcelona to dusseldorf. one of the first things they look at is the weather. we don't know what kind of conditions they were trying to fly through. >> we don't know at this point in time and, of course these aircraft are resilient and can fly flewthrough ice and one of the things investigators at this point look at is the fact that you really have no idea until you start piecing together a lot of facts and nobody can rule out
7:04 am
anything at this point. >> how big is the a320? we know at least 142 passengers 4 crew members and that could change as we get more details. potentially how many could it be carrying. >> it could easily carry 150, 170. the a320 is a standard. there is a stretch version called the a321 and there are smaller versions but by and large 150 feet long and they are single aisle cabin aircraft capable of carrying about 150, 170 people depending on the seating configuration. >> we'd be remiss if we didn't point out this is an extraordinary year to point out on aviation disasters. another headline this morning about a jet that's perhaps gone down. >> the amount of air traffic in the world is still staggering. over 93,000 flights over the planet every single day that any of us could buy a ticket on and
7:05 am
relatively speaking the safety record is incredible and you're also going to have a possibility of higher numbers of accidents just because of number of airplanes but this has been and extraordinarily disturbing year. >> all right, our aviation consultant john nance a pilot himself on the phone. just to recap those watching breaking news an a-320 believed to be flying from barcelona to dusseldorf 142 passengers and told colonel steve ganyard on the phone with us robin. steven your first reaction after hearing about this? 6800 feet? >> i'm looking at the flight track. very interesting as it left barcelona and headed off to the northeast, went out over the mediterranean and it was on a normal route that you would expect and en route to dusseldorf and as it crossed into -- towards italy into the southern alps there was a significant altitude change huge descent and lost radar
7:06 am
contact at 6800 feet obviously somewhere in the mountains there, so very baffling to see something that would indicate that the aircraft was just fine at altitude and route and then for some reason a big descent into very high terrain. >> people will be studying that all morning long and have developments as they come in. steven thanks to you and john and lama for the breaking coverage. >> we'll keep everybody updated. that announcement from angelina jolie revealing she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to prevent cancer. this is not the first time she's opened up about a major medical decision. >> this is a bombshell from engine angelina jolie. she revealed at just 39 she's removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes and she's doing it despite the serious effects that may follow. jolie writing she underwent the procedure after a recent blood
7:07 am
test detected markers that serve as a potential sign of early ovarian cancer. the type of cancer that killed her mother in 2007. >> she was just kind to everybody and yet when it came to protecting her chdren or doing anythingn 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 more children she writes and i expect some physical changes but i feel at ease with whatever
7:08 am
will come. this coming nearly two years since the star stunned the world undergoing a prevent tiff 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. the brca1, what is it?
7:09 am
>> the ovarian cancer risk that comes with this mutation is significantly. 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 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 10% of women with this type of mutation will have a hidden or a
7:10 am
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 owe rarevarian 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 assess many and thisser a's helpful. if you could speak to a gyn cancer surgeon before your surgery that's helpful. remember there are options. the birth control pill also
7:11 am
lowers the risk of ovarian cancer and 30% of women choose not to have surgery. >> 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 contemplating there was a gunman 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 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 as authorities checked ow the call. later police determined the threat was unsubstantiated and
7:12 am
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 and was upset that it was 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 e only news is that the ladies on both teams played their hearts out and princeton's un 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. jon karl went one-on-one with cruz right after he launched his presidential run. had a chance to talk to him. >> sure did. ted cruz is about as
7:13 am
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 lennonson "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 -- >> reporter: very different message than john lennon's?
7:14 am
>> 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. >> 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 immediatemedia that it is a hard line to present a positive optimistic vision. it talked about imagining an 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 anin insurgent insurgent. >> the race is on. appreciate it jon.
7:15 am
now to amy with the other top stories right now starting with new spying allegations against a u.s. ally. >> that's right. 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 divisionive 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 article was published. the accused frat now says it's
7:16 am
exploreing its legal options. in rally, north carolina investigators say construction workersy dismantling scaffolding on this when a piece 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 hundred of the 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 years but the message wasn't what you think. he offered to share it but said
7:17 am
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. no 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, severe weather has a definition. you can't just call any severe weather, it has to be damaging
7:18 am

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. >> wreaking 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. it doesn't sound like rescue crews will be able to get to the wreckage in a real quick manner. this is a remote area in the french alps where this a320 went down. it's a germanwings aircraft
7:31 am
carrying 142 passengers 2 piles and a crew of 4 when it went down of we don't know much about the aircraft other than the fact it's an a320 and that it was at cruising altitude and then suddenly the last radar hit from flight 24 radar which is a way that some of us can look at how radar hits are tracked around the world it went from 32,000 feet to 6800 feet. you can raise a lot of questions about why that might have happened but were down close to those mountains and apparently as we know impacted the mountains. the french president saying that there are no survivors this morning. 148 people lost on this flight from barcelona to dusseldorf david. >> of course their nationalities not known. they'll look at that steep descent but in the meantime, the a320 is something that has flown -- it's very common around the world. >> reporter: thousands of them in service all over the place, it's similar to the boeing 737. a workhorse of many airlines' fleets. we did see another a320 go down
7:32 am
not too long ago, the transasia aircraft that went down another a320 but that was in weather. we don't know what happened here. the pilot would tell you when you see somebody go from 32,000 to 6800 something has happened in the aircraft. they want to lose altitude quickly to gain control of the aircraft. the situation in the aircraft but far too early to know if that's the case. >> all right, david, thanks so much. now to the latest on robert durst. the accused killer is till 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 lynn schultz disappeared 44 years ago and while durst's lawyer tells abc news he's seen no evidence linking him to the case the connection coming just hours
7:33 am
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 undecided man and 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 west chester county d.a. jeanine pirro. she's been participating in the dogging of mr. durst for year
7:34 am
they say. >> 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." 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. i re-opened it and, yes, i have been investigating this case for a long time.
7:35 am
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 attorneyeing 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 this dick degeurin gets an emotional reaction he has to
7:36 am
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 jinx 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 and mark did in jinx 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. it doesn't require that anyone have an expert to interpret it.
7:37 am
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.jacqui: goooodorni washingtgton. clou andool ththis mning th aftnoone shld getet a few pk of sunshine with highh tetemperataturesn thehe mid topper 40's, c cloudy skies

8:35 am
hard to get through just mentioning all of this. it's so powerful and it means so much this film your book and coming to life like this and ken we know you with the pbs documentaries that are wonderful. civil war and baseball and that. this is personal for you. >> it is personal. my mom died ocancer breast cancer when i was 11 years old just a few months short of my 12th birthday. there wasn't a moment growing up when i wasn't aware that something was wrong with her and though i have a very busy schedule of films, i couldn't not do this. once i read siddhartha mukherjee's book i couldn't not do it and engaged a wonderful filmmaker to do the day-to-day producing. how could you not do something that touches the lives of every one of us. >> it led to the work that you're doing now? >> exactly. i mean we've produced a three-part six-hour series that will be broadcast starting march 30th on pbs and it's a way to
8:36 am
try to take the complicated science, the fascinating decorative story of the history and mix it together with personal stories that is the glue that holds this together. >> see, that's the beauty of it. we can spout stats. we know all the statistics and know from your book and but it's something so terminal and katie, of course, your husband, your sister and a friend to all of us from stand up to cancer got this -- >> lauren. my involvement. i'm just liking to bask in these guys but my involvement is as a co-founder of stand up to cancer. laura ziskin read sid's book and said i want to buy the tv and film rights and by the way you'll win a pulitzer prize, p.s., he did win and so as a result sharon rockefeller was also his head reading the book at the same time undergoing cancer treatment, robin, for a really misdiagnosed colon cancer
8:37 am
much they came together and voila, we have this unbelievably compelling six hours which does complain the diabetes the mystery of cancer but i think the human stories are so beautifully crafted and these people robin, let ken and the cameras up close and personal while they were dealing with the diagnosis and getting -- figuring out what kind of treatment they would receive. it is so intimate and so -- i mean their anguish is palpable and the documentary is amazing. i'm so proud discuss to be associated with it. >> we'll get to a clip in just a minute but dr. mukherjee, it started wit a patient of yours asking a simple question. >> i mean you know every project starts that way with one single moment and for me the moment was a patient asked me i'm willing to go on with my next therapy, but i need you to tell me why we're doing this. where are we going? and i thought -- i mean we got this question in 2015 our
8:38 am
newspapers are inundating us with news on cancer. where is the report card? i want to know people want to know as a person i want to know as a doctor i want to know as a patient i want to know what's -- why are we here today and what's happening next? and the film does exactly that. it shows us how we got here and what happens next and that's crucial. >> we are willing to fight but we have to know what we're fighting. >> yeah. >> i think that's what as patients and those who have gone through it want to know ken. >> we need an executive summary of where we've been where we are and where we may be going and at an incredibly hopeful moment but get our media and hear about this discovery, this setback. this thing, that happened. how do you aggregate all of that into some content that has a narrative to it that turns everyone who watches it into a kind of cancer researcher. they don't have to go into that but they understand that if sid is right this is the emperor of all maladies we're the subjects and need to join the resistance movement and fight the disease.
8:39 am
>> which is something you've done so beautifully, robin, and hats off to you about being so honest and raising awareness something i tried to do when jay, my husband died and a lot -- there is a lot of focus on these advocates like mary lasker who brought the american cancer society to new heights and rose kushner who convinced women to get a lumpectomy rather than a radical mastectomy. >> there are so many advocates out there. i want to play a clip. you talked about -- this is about stories. this is so personal and a little girl olivia. >> something is wrong with my daughter. i'm scared. she was not the normal happy running around playing girl. every thought went through your mind like why, why is this happening happening? say night-night.
8:40 am
>> it's your new reality. you know your child, your child has cancer. >> dr. mukherjee, how is she doing? >> she is doing very well. i saw her actually last night in baltimore. she's in full remission and when there was a clip of her crying on screen and she turned to her mommy and said who is that girl who is crying? she didn't recognize herself. >> it's a feel better -- it's about hope and that is what we have to remember when watching this. >> definitely. >> all right. well thank you. i know this is important, march -- >> it's colorectal cancer awareness month, get screened because colon cancer has a 90% cure rate if it's found early so i just tell people i met a guy at the gym the other day. he's like hey, katie, i got a

life. >> for a lot of years it was something that definitely impacted me to a much greater extent than i would have liked and i don't think anyone should have to do that. i don't think anyone should be afraid in their own home. that's not -- that's not acceptable. >> you shouldn't have to live in fear anywhere but what have you learned about yourself? >> i have learned that my way of dealing with things is to hide. this is not productive. i am working on that. >> that's honest. >> i have also learned that the best way to deal with is to be proactive. there are amazing resources online. there are hot lines. there are laws there are people there are systems. you are not alone if this happens to you. >> after 20 years of being in so many homes and you had a 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
