the first of its kind drug to help new moms struggling with postpartum depression just approved by the fda. dr. ashton is here. wendy williams' stunning revelation. the talk show host telling fans she's been living secretly in a sober house struggling with addiction while doing her show. and how to catch a car thief. the new security app you can download right on your phone to stop robbers in action. and the nfl player who used it to tackle a would-be thief in realtime. good to have you with us on this first day of spring. >> it's almost beginning to feel w essure on boeing amid reports about that boeing 737 max 8 crash and whether the certification was compromised. sully sullenberger also weighing in and our senior transportation correspondent david kerley tracking all the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning,
7:02 am
these investigation being launched this morning as we're awaiting investigators in ethioipia to determine if these two crashes are similar. the frightening new details this morning are from the first 737 crash in indonesia. according to individuals with knowledge of the cockpit voice recorder, the pilots struggled with their quick-reference handbook, a checklist with abnormal events and rang out of time. the day before a crew on that same jet did shut off the anti-stall system which was the problem. but it was reportedly a pilot riding along in the jump seat according to bloomberg who had to point out the correct procedure. >> the previous pilot flying that aircraft, he had a similar situation. he took the appropriate action, turned off the electronic system and controlled his tail manually
7:03 am
and landed the aircraft and then went to maintenance and said, hey, we've got a problem with one of the sensors and they clearly did not replace it and repair it properly. >> reporter: with the second crash in ethiopia and clear similarities to lion air, secretary of transportation elaine chao has now asked the department's inspector general to conduct a formal audit of the certification process by the faa of the 737 max. that coming just hours after the european union announced it will look into boeing's software upgrade for that anti-stall system very deeply, very closely. >> we will not allow the aircraft to fly if we have not found acceptable answers to all our questions on both sides, whatever the faa does. >> reporter: canada also announcing it will conduct its certification of the software update before letting the maxs fly again. boeing and the faa have also been called out by the hero on
7:04 am
the hudson, captain sully sullenberger writing in marketwatch says, the faa has a cozy relationship with boeing, which is hurting the credibility of the agency. in too many cases, he says, faa employees who rightly called for stricter compliance were overruled by faa management often under corporate or political pressure. but a former faa official says that goes too far. >> the statistics really are overwhelmingly in favor of our current system and that we've had a single fatality in 100 million flights in the united states. >> so, david, what do they expect this new investigation to focus on? >> it will probably be broad review of the cer was there pressure to improve that? the boeing upgrade of software for the max that's comes will have multiple points of data
7:05 am
that would actually trigger than anti-stall system in the 737 max. >> now to those new threats in the northeast and midwest as neighborhoods try to recover from deadly flooding two new storms are now forming and ginger has it all this morning. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to you, michael. we've shown you so many images the last few days out of nebraska, they're still reeling and more rain on the way, but look at pictures out of henderson, minnesota. the minnesota river is going to rise another up to six feet. so what you're seeing there is just the beginning. iowa has had major problems too along the missouri, other rivers inland. you've had towns cut off and you've had evacuations taking place and now we have more flooding on the way. it starts with the snow melt. this weekend we're going to see temperatures, minnesota, wisconsin, north dakota, south dakota rise into the 50s, if not close to 60, that is going to melt that one to two feet of snow, put on top of it sunday into monday, a half to say up t
7:06 am
pockets especially in southeastern nebraska, where you don't need it, going to get a lot coming by the end of the weekend, early next week. i think by next week we'll talk about even more widespread flooding. >> oh, my, okay, thank you. now to that breaking news about that massive chemical plant fire in texas. firefighters are now reporting all the tank fires are contained but there are still concerns about smoke and debris. marci gonzalez has the latest. good morning, marci. >> reporter: good morning, robin. such a huge relief for so many to see the clear skies since the massive fire that's burning since sunday is out. a lot of concerns here about the chemicals that burned going up in that huge plume of smoke that just over this area for days. people have been finding these big chunks of debris in their yards. others are already reporting some issues like dizziness and itchy eyes and they have been monitoring the air quality since
7:07 am
this all started. they say the levels are safe, but schools are closed again today as a precaution. and right now, firefighters are still out here, they're putting foam and water on these tanks to make sure this fire doesn't reignite. robin. >> still want to make precautions. thank you. to the white house now and that bizarre and bitter feud between president trump and the husband of his top adviser kellyanne conway. george conway has been criticizing the president, questioning his mental health in recent posts, and trump fired back calling conway a total loser and terry moran is in washington with the story. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's a house divided, and to be honest probably like many houses in the united states, kellyanne conway and george conway are each highly accomplished professional people. they are a power couple in washington, d.c., and they just happen to disagree about the president of the united states. kellyanne conway, one of president trump's most trusted
7:08 am
and visible aides, is now caught in the center of an increasingly public and bitter feud between her boss and her husband. the president on tuesday branded george conway "a total loser" after the longtime conservative lawyer repeatedly publicly questioned the president's mental fitness. conway replied tweeting, congratulations, you just guaranteed that millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder and malignant narcissism. george conway's rise as one of the most vocal critics is a starking contrast from his wife's frequent tv appearances defending president trump. here's how kellyanne conway handled the situation this week. >> your husband has been tweeting his concerns about the president's mental fitness for office. are those concerns that you share or how do you deal -- >> no, i don't share those concerns -- i have four kids and i was getting out of the house this morning before i got here to talk to the president about substance. i may not be up to speed on all of them.
7:09 am
>> reporter: on tuesday her husband told "the washington post" he needs to get it off his chest using twitter, quote, so i don't end up screaming at her about it. >> i don't think she likes it, but i've told her i don't like the administration, so it's even -- it's one of these things. >> reporter: he also told "the washington post," quote, the mendacity, the incompetence, it's just maddening to watch. so, that's that and maybe there's a lesson here. the next time you're in a spat with your spouse or husband, maybe you don't take it to twitter. george. >> pretty good advice. thanks very much. also in washington, more signs the mueller investigation may be wrapping up as newly unsealed search warrants for michael cohen, hundreds of documents released at the request of abc news and other news organizations revealed how long trump's fixer was on mueller's radar. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has been tracking the investigation. it appears mueller is close to delivering his report to the attorney general. >> reporter: good morning, that's right. number one the special counsel grand jury here in washington as
7:10 am
far as we can tell is dormant. we haven't seen the steady spate of witnesses coming in and out for week and aware his team of prosecutors is shrinking. a key fbi official on his team announced his planned departure and andrew weissmann is leaving soon to become a professor. in another clue that the special counsel's office is focusing all efforts on their final report, we're learning mueller's team has requested more time to respond to a court request to unseal records in paul manafort's case. in that filing, prosecutors on mueller's team said they were requesting a delay because of, quote, the press of other work. it seems safe to assume other work is mueller's final report, george. >> mueller may be wrapping up but those documents revealed yesterday that he's leaving plenty of work for other prosecutors. >> reporter: that's right. prosecutors in the southern district of new york still appear to be very active. we received a trove of documents released yesterday in connection with michael cohen's case with nearly 19 pages of redaction. all dealing with what prosecutors entitled the illegal campaign contribution scheme.
7:11 am
george, i was struck by the use of the word scheme which usually indicates multiple people being involved, a scheme, quote, involving hush money, payments where cohen implicated the president as directing his crimes. it looks like anyone quote involved in that scheme may be in the crosshairs. >> pierre thomas, thanks very much. now to a major new development in the prostitution case against robert kraft. prosecutors are offering to drop the charges against him, but there's a big catch. kwhit johnson is here with the details. good morning, whit. >> you said it, there is a huge catch this this case. if robert kraft takes that deal he would have to admit if this were to go to trial he would lose and ultimately be found guilty. the new england patriots owner is accused of two misdemeanor counts of soliciting a prostitute at a florida massage parlor. he was caught up in a major operation to uncover human trafficking at these illicit operations. kraft has pleaded not guilty to the charges and a patriots spokesman said he did not do anything illegal. to be clear this would not be a guilty plea. it's called a deferred prosecution agreement that's been offered to kraft and 24
7:12 am
other men charged in the case. so far no comment as to whether kraft would accept the deal, but if he goes to trial, kraft faces up to 60 days in jail if convicted. >> again, he's not the only one being offered this. what are the other terms of the deal? >> definitely some conditions including 100 hours of community service, kraft would have to take classes about the dangers of prostitution, and also could pay up to $10,000 in fines, again, even if he takes the deal, he still faces a possible penalty or fines or some disciplinary action from the nfl. >> but, again, no word on if he is going to accept this. >> exactly. so far none of the other people have accepted the deal. >> thank you, whit. >> thank you, whit. now to new developments in that spring break emergency in miami beach. officials there announcing new measures to help keep the piece peace and as one local commissioner said, make it, quote, a lot less fun to be here. abc's victor oquendo has more. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael.
7:13 am
residents and business owners here on miami beach are fed up and there's another big spring break weekend coming up. now, an updated plan is in place, police are ready to crack down. with spring break brawls from the streets to the sand becoming more common and arrests on the rise, miami beach is searching for solutions. the city saying the annual party destination has grown hard to control. >> nobody can go out safely. you can't go to the beach safely. our cops are working 15, 18 hours a day. it's a public safety emergency. >> reporter: tuesday, the mayor calling an emergency meeting to tackle the issue head on. >> i want our visitors to know that if they're coming here just to do whatever the heck they want, or to do something that they wouldn't do in their hometown, they ought to go somewhere else. >> reporter: crowds to the popular spring break locale are rkin longer hours.
7:14 am
now patrols will be deployed on nearly every corner and police will be more aggressive towards public drinking and marijuana. some cops even wearing protective gear. >> going to wear protected equipment because stuff will be thrown at them. last year an officer broke his hand because a bottle was thrown at him. >> reporter: these cars inching close enough for one driver to pour a drink for the passenger in the other vehicle, so lanes of traffic will once again be reduced to ensure license plate readers won't miss a single car as it enters miami beach. do you want to eradicate it? >> we want to eradicate this kind of spring break. but certainly don't want them behaving the way they have and that's been a problem. >> reporter: so if anyone is caught with an open container police will ask them to pour it out. if they refuse they will be arrested on the spot. >> all right, victor, thank you. now to that medical breakthrough, the fda has approved the first medication that specifically targets postpartum depression. a condition that affects one in nine women every year. dr. jennifer ashton is here with the latest.
7:15 am
so, please tell us more about this new drug. >> this drug is called zulresso. it would be given intravenously over a period of about 2 1/2 days. it works differently than other antidepressants. the results are almost immediate whereas other antidepressants can take up to three weeks to see an effect and potentially this drug may be available to women as early as june. >> so what are the potential risks and downfall? >> with any drug a kind of a long list, number one, cost, this drug is expected to be $35,000 per treatment. >> what? >> yes. there will be major issues with access because they will only be available in what's called restricted settings which means hospitalized medical observation. there are potential side effects which are loss of consciousness so, again, potentially big news for women's health but the cost is a major -- >> is that something your insurance would cover? >> we have no idea and it depends about medicaid covering it as well. >> insurance companies say they're assessing it right now. >> exactly. >> so much more to talk about
7:16 am
with this and we even have a woman who successfully went through the treatment and we're going to share that in the 8:00 hour. >> i'll be back. >> thank you. we have news of a rescue after this scary moment in the austrian alps. take a look at this. we see a group of skiers caught in an avalanche. the ridge gives way there. it goes right there. thankfully everyone is okay. walked away without serious injury but it was a scary moment there and on the day of the incident there were avalanche warnings in that area. and this from des moines, the catch of a lifetime caught on body cam. a family was trapped in that burning apartment building and officers urged the mom to drop her three children out of the window. >> i got you. >> she did, just one by one by one. >> wow. >> the officers caught all of them and then mom and everyone else got out of the building to safety. >> babies. >> yeah, that's great. great for some heroes right there.
7:17 am
and take a look at this. it is major league baseball's opening day in japan. the mariners taking on the athletics. getting the first home run of the season, piscotty. they're playing that game right now, i think. it's an early game for us here and some other major league news. >> oh, major indeed. >> major indeed. espn is reporting los angeles angels superstar mike trout is set to sign the largest contract in sports history -- 12 years, $430 million. it's an extension with the team, nearly 36 million per year. his fellow athletes are predictably, you know, jealous, a little bit. football star j.j. watt tweeting to his team, hey, houston texans, mike trout and i kind of look alike. so how do you feel about 12 years, $430 million fully guaranteed for me too? you know, baseball contract, basketball contracts are guaranteed, so he will literally make 430 million but he's been one of the best players in the league from day one so well deserved.
7:18 am
>> not guaranteed in the nfl. >> not guaranteed in the nfl, but one thing i can guarantee, i'll be in the park hitting balls this afternoon if anyone wants to come over and pitch. >> never too late. >> never too late. this morning, we have the latest on wendy williams' emotional announcement. the talk show host revealing she's living in a sober house. we wish her all the best. she'll be back on the job today and we'll have more on her story ahead. the $150 million lawsuit against the hugely popular fitness program peloton over those exercise videos and the music in them and to ginger. >> let's talk about the coastal storm, eastern north carolina morehead city, some folks will get it tonight and moves up, philadelphia, new york city by thursday night. it's really windy after this. your local weather in 30 seconds. first the springlike cities sponsored by northwestern mutual.

7:35 am
interested in. as deborah said she was forced to do this because there was a tabloid report coming out about where she was staying and purporting to have revelations about her personal life and we'll hear more about that in the ongoing days. but i think her vulnerability that she just demonstrated on the show is not something she ordinarily shows and makes it compelling and people will respond to it. >> not just audience but on social media as well. >> sure. >> and the bigger picture is, she's going to really help people dealing with this and how she's talking about this. >> whenever celebrities have these situations there's the interest in their own personal narrative but then there is a discussion about the broader topics. in this case it's sober houses, where are they, how many are there, does insurance cover them, do they work, how effective are they? all that have is good because, again, celebrities become vessels for understanding for other people who may not know and may feel their lives have no solution. this may not be for everybody but there are some people who will learn from this. >> she's going to get support. her audience will support her and her show will go on. >> no question about it.

starts running. >> and you ran out. >> book it. >> reporter: as one whose job it is to bowl people over -- >> this is armah. >> reporter: the 250-pound football player did just that. >> i grabbed him and threw him out here. he comes this way in between these two cars. >> and he's making a run for it. >> he's making a run for it. >> reporter: restraining him with a wrestling move called the arm bar captured on alex's cell phone filmed by his building's concierge. >> quit trying to fight, sir. >> reporter: it goes without saying but police warn, never try to apprehend a suspect yourself. >> stop trying to fight it, dog. >> reporter: the alleged thief was arrested, charged with breaking and entering into a motor vehicle. he was released on bond and is due in court later this month. that video now evidence. >> we have the guy's picture. we have what he was doing in my car so it's really undisputed. >> literally caught red-handed. >> literally caught red-handed. >> reporter: all of it captured on an owl car cam. like similar cameras on the market, it has both inward and outward facing cameras and will
7:44 am
alert your phone if your vehicle is hit or broken into, even when you're not around. it's already been used to capture break-ins and it's a new tool in helping police track down criminals like this. >> we hear the story over and over again where someone calls up the police effectively and says, hey, my car got broken into. well, we can't do much about that. i have video. well, the videos we get aren't very good, then they send the video from the owl camera and the police will say, we've never seen video like this. we can see exactly who it is. i think one of the ones that's hit me the hardest, there was a woman named jennifer. two guys came up to her and said they had a gun. she thought to walk in front of the car and pulled the two into range of the camera and she points at it and says, do you really want to do this and they back off. in less than an hour both of those two were arrested. >> do you think it might change the way car owners and police deal with carjackings? >> i definitely think it's going to be huge advantage. it's going to be huge for the criminals as well. they'll think twice for sure.
7:45 am
>> now, to be clear no one including the police condone going after the bad guys yourself. it's not meant to create vigilantes, but it is meant to catch crooks in the act. some are posting to social media to catch them so, if you see something happen in your car, call 911. do not do what alex did and go tackle the guy. >> how much does the system cost? >> it's a couple hundred dollars including the artificial intelligence and the realtime communications that you get, but investigators tell me more and more crime files include video clips as evidence. so it's really sort of changing the game. >> seems like it's worth the investment. >> yeah. >> a lot more tonight on "nightline." >> absolutely. >> juju, thanks very much. and coming up, everybody, we have our play of the day. ming up, our play of the day.

breakthrough for women suffering from postpartum depression. the fda approved a first of its kind medication to treat it. dr. jen ashton will join us again in a moment. first diane macedo has the story of a young mother whose life was changed by this new drug. >> i want a cookie please. >> reporter: for stephanie hathaway there's nothing better than being a mom to these two. >> i'll sit next to you, mommy. >> reporter: but motherhood hasn't always been easy. stefanie says she suffered from crippling postpartum depression after both of her pregnancies, something the connecticut mom had never even heard of before it happened to her. >> i was unable to make myself cook. unable to make myself clean. very difficult to trach care of the baby. it was just a time of a lot of struggle, a lot of hopelessness and a lot of fear. >> reporter: stefanie says she was also plagued by depressing thoughts that ron on a constant loop inside her head. >> your daughter deserves a
8:14 am
better mom. your husband deserves a better wife and i was scared of what i might do if i put her down. >> reporter: but when antidepressants failed to help after the second births the 33-year-old decided to take part in a study for a new drug called zulresso, the first ever medication made specifically for women suffering from postpartum depression. it requires a 2 1/2-day hospital stay while it's administered through a single 60-hour i.v. infusion. stefanie says she started to feel better within just a few hours. >> the intrusive thoughts went away and they did not come back. i called my husband and i just remember my husband saying, wow, i haven't heard the you in your voice in so long. >> about one in every nine women suffer from postpartum depression in the u.s. symptoms can rank from sadness to thoughts of self-harm or even fears of harming the baby. zulresso targets a unique set of receptors different from the ones targeted by traditional
8:15 am
anti-depression medications and while some women may be wary of treatment that requires a hospital stay, stefanie says for her it was worth it. >> it was very much like a cloud was lifted and i just remember walking out of the hospital feeling like me again. >> reporter: for "good morning america," diane macedo, abc news, new york. >> our thanks and dr. jen is back. so for people who are not familiar, just explain what this is. >> first of all, postpartum depression, robin, to be clear is a life-threatening medical emergency. there's so much stigma and myth about it. it's not about being overtired or hormonal and this affects not just the woman and her baby but her entire social circle. one out of nine women as we heard in diane's piece. this is major news in the world of psychiatrist and women's health. this drug historic. it's the first drug ever to be approved by the fda to treat postpartum depression. it does work differently as we heard than other antidepressants mainly because they can take three weeks to see an effect.
8:16 am
the results are almost immediate. that is major relief and potentially life saving. >> explain more why this is suc well, because of the rapidity with which it works and because of its approval it opens up areas of research for other drugs like it but your question, i'm sure, is what about the downsides. they are massive with this, robin. the biggest one is the cost. this drug comes with up to a $35,000 per dose price tag. who is going to be able to afford that and medicaid and insurance, will they cover it? as a practicing physician i can't imagine that they will. it will only be given in hospitalized centers with direct medical observation because of the potential side effects of loss of consciousness and sedation. so the logistics are going to be tricky. this won't be something you can go to your pharmacy and get and breast-feeding. women are breast-feeding. they will not be able to breast-feeding while they're getting this infusion so they'll have to pump and dump as we say.
8:17 am
>> other potential issues? >> i mean really the biggest one is the logistics and cost. i mean i think it's great to have finally a drug that can offer help to women. but $35,000, whether you have insurance or not, that is going to be a paige issue. >> the stress, again, this is not just the baby blues. you know how someone tries to discount it. >> this is a major part of postpartum death so this is to be clear not an issue of, just shrug it off. it's all in your head but a big life-threatening issue. >> so much more to discuss. you'll be on facebook. >> yes, i am. >> i know people will have questions for you and you're the woman for it. michael. it is time for our spring clean up and this morning it's all about refreshing your diet. usually when you hear clean your plate, that means eat every last bite but today we're talking about clean eating with nutritionist and food expert dawn jackson blatner.

thanks for joining us.ap spring? happy spring to you. you have healthy tricks for us. we start with a quick and powerful way that you can start your morning but you can prep fo t day in adnce? we've all heard green juice is good for you. you can have an expensive juicer. this is a very fast hack. just three ingredients you need and put it in a little plastic sandwich bag, half of a lemon peeled. a couple of berries and one to two cups of spinach. i freed it. i wake up in the morning, i think, i want a green juice, thank you for the role play. i put it in a blender along with one cup of water and then what happens, i blend it up and in 15 seconds, i get a green juice that i could have every morning that's going to flood my body with good nutrition. >> there you go. >> so i'm flooding myody with good nutrition. >> if you're a snacker what can you munch on? >> a lot of pooh emthink i got
8:19 am
to gck time is super important. i love veggies at snack time. but fun veggie, for example, asparagus with a little prosciutto makes it fun. pro-sho prosciutto is low in calories but a dose of protein. jicama. i love it. it is a great chip or cracker swap. refreshing vegty with a ton of water and fiber and makes you feel full. instead of chips and guac, jicama and guac. who doesn't love spinach dip. it is difference but it's mayonnaise and sour cream so i swapped it out to break yogurt. higher in protein and makes i like that. >> one of the biggest things is portion control. you have a hack to help. >> people oftentimes i got to weigh and measure and record. no, no obsession here. you just have to use your eyes
8:20 am
and a divided plate. so if you have a plate about a quarter of it should be protein, about a quarter of it should be whole grains or potatoes and about half of i veggies, okay. so here are some examples. i like you're giggling. here's an example. this would be a burger for your protein, sweet potatoes and big salad with vinaigrette or meatballs and quinoa pasta with a big half plate of broccoli or brown rice with grilled chicken and ton of veggies with a little peanuts. you still get to eat your favorites. >> the divided plate reminds me of school. yeah, divided plate reminds of being in middle school, elementary school and we don't have time for dessert but there are healthy desserts you can eat to crave your sweet tooth. >> with no added sugar. >> get es on our website and see about desserts as well and over to ginger. >> thank you, michael.

8:23 am
how did you go through it so quickly? >> i went to public school up until fifth grade and then after -- once i reached fifth grade my parents realized i %-p. my grades started to fall. i started becoming more worried about what my peers thought of me rather than my grades and so my parents decided to pull me out. that was another reason i couldn't get into the gifted and talented program and then they homeschooled me and homeschool is really where it helps me accelerate and go at my own pace then i was able to graduate homeschool high school at 13 and now i'm 16 and a senior. >> wow. [ applause ] wow. >> i love that. >> but someone -- someone as gifted as you you have to have a lot of different options. why did you choose law school? >> it was really my entire educational journey. after looking at it, it really sparked a flame in me to help other students and fight for equity. my mom is a doctor so when i
8:24 am
first went to my first year of college was at my local community college. i was a chemistry major because i wanted to go into medicine but then i looked into my education journey and realized how many students get looked over from the gifted and talented program and like i said i couldn't test my school, public school wouldn't let me test for the gifted and talented program so had we been like we tried and i stayed in public school i would have missed this amazing opportunity to be where i am today and i'm like, i wonder how many students -- [ applause ] >> you explained that well. you do. you're 16. what do you do for fun? >> a lot of things. i love reading. i love writing and drawing and playing video games with my siblings. >> how do you do? >> my brother is way better than me. >> speaking of your brother you're not the only kid in the family with major accomplishments. >> my brother is a 13-year-old freshman in college and my sister is an 11-year-old freshman in high school.
