7:02 am
airport before. >> reporter: good morning, matt. he was one of four pilots on board. he had about 10,000 hours total of flying time. a lot of different planes, including the 747. he had landed in other planes here. the ntfb is hoping to talk to him and other pilots today. we know the plane was coming low and slow. the so-called black boxes are shedding light on what happened in the final seconds of asiana flight 214. no indication of any problems until seconds before landing. at seven seconds before impact, a call from one of the pilots to
7:03 am
increase the speed. it was coming in too slow. >> we're not talking about a few knots here or there. we're talking about a significant amount of speed below 137. >> reporter: less than two seconds before impact, the pilot calls to abort the landing, but it is too late. the jet slams into the sea wall. this video shows the planes final seconds. >> they were calling for more power. they tried to abort the landing and unfortunately gravity took over and they weren't able to salvage and get that plane back airborne. >> reporter: crews race to the scene. >> we see people and i think we should they need attention.
7:04 am
they are alive and walking around. >> you said -- you said people are just walking outside the airplane right now? >> the impact was so powerful. >> i thought the plane might blow up and i might die. >> reporter: our first look inside the plane. oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling and some seats knocked over. while on the runway, investigators examine part of the tail, looking for clues as to what caused this terrible disaster. the fire department says it is possible that one of the two teenagers who was killed here may have been hit by a responding piece of fire equipment, a fire engine. they are investigating that and
7:05 am
so is the coroners office. back to you. a little earlier this morning, we talk to the chairman of the national transportation safety board. i asked her to explain just how far below that target speed the plane was actually traveling. >> what we know is the speed was slow. they identified that on the cockpit voice recorder. we also have information from the flight data recorder that shows that their speed was well below 137. we have radar data from air traffic control. we need to corroborate all that information. and we do want to have an interview with the crews. it is important for us to talk to them before we begin to put information out that might bias those interviews. >> we know seven seconds before
7:06 am
the crash, someone called for more speed. at that time, was it too late? could anybody have saved the aircraft at that time? >> it wasn't until about 1.5 seconds before impact they called for a go-around. they did push those throttles up and tried to get some lift. >> according to a company that listens to air traffic broadcasting, this aircraft was descending about 4,000 feet per minute. an average would be about 600 to 800 feet a minute. would there have been some kind of a computer system, an alarm, an override, that warned this crew that there was an eminent
7:07 am
problem? >> that's all information we need to gather. we need to take a look at. some of that can come from the cockpit voice recorder. what were they hearing? how were they trained? and what was their expectation as far as the performance of the aircraft? >> it's been reported now the pilot had about 43 hours of experience at the controls of the 777, but never attempted a landing at this particular airport. can you say pilot inexperience played a role in the crash? >> well, we know that there's difference levels of experience and in certain aircraft types, we will see different experiences. you have to acquire experience and time. the expectation is you have good crew resource management and
7:08 am
good pairing of people that can work together and we need to understand what was going on between these two crew members at the time. >> i understand you're being very careful with this, but let me ask the question one more time. do you think the fact this was this pilot's first attempted landing in a 777 played a role in the crash? >> i think we'll have to take a look at that. it's not unusual. you want to have a crew that's proficient in the aircraft and works together well, that you have good crew pairings. that's important. >> thank you very much for your time. >> thank you. now to the unrest in egyptian. this morning a new wave of deadly violence as military
7:09 am

7:13 am
single engine plane was uprooted by a local company. >> while it has a higher level of professionalism and regulation, whenever you see any part of that carrier have an accident, that raises questions. >> reporter: alaska state police say the victims have not yet been identified. for alaskans, traveling by plane around the state is normal. initial reports the plane crashed on takeoff. that'll have to be confirmed. dozens of people are still missing after a train derailed in quebec. at least 30 buildings were destroyed.

training pilot was the cause of this crash. the crash ended up killing two teenage girls from china. this morning their parents, among dozens of victim family members who left china for san francisco. once they meet with the victims' families, the coroner is expected to release information on how the girls were killed, including whether one of them may have been hit by a fire truck responding to the scene. meteorologist christina loren is telling us it's a pretty nice way to start the workweek. >> we have gray skies, overcast conditions over the bay bridge. that's our natural air conditioner. the thick low ceiling forcing flight delays. you also have one of those runways out of commission. so just count on those delays for the next few hours. noticing delays out of chicago, o'hare as well this morning. as we head throughout the day, temperatures will be comfortable. we'll be in the 80s.

7:32 am
trayvon's father. a police detective wrote in his report i asked mr. martin if the voice was calling for help was his son. mr. martin quietly responded no. >> i think what tracy martin said was, that's not my son's voice. i think that's information the jury needs to have. >> reporter: the jury has listened to that tape repeate y repeatedly. trayvon's parents have not commented during the trial. >> i never say, no, that's not trayvon. but after going back to the mayor's office and having a chance to listen to the tape for at least -- i don't know how long. we just played it over and over and over again. i knew then that that was my

son. >> reporter: in court trayvon mart martin's mother and george zimmerman's mother came to different conclusions. >> do you recognize the screamiscream ing in the video? >> yes. >> whose voice was that? >> trayvon martin. >> do you recognize "the voice" in the screaming in the background? >> who was that? >> george. >> does that testimony sort of cancel each other out or was one more credible than the other? >> i think it has to cancel out. i don't know how the jury can decide which of these two men were screaming on the tape. >> how does the defense get
7:34 am
around the fact if it was george zimmerman crying for help, as soon as we hear the gunshot, the crying stops. >> he didn't need to yell out anymore once the shot rang out. minutes later, george thought he was alive. >> does "the voice" on the tape get to the central issue? >> many witnesses have said there's only one voice yelling out on that recording. you really only hear one voice. >> seems like the thrust of the prosecution case is to put on the different stories george zimmerman as told. is there anything to you that really stands out as an inconsistency that's very material? >> zimmerman said his gun was holstered behind him.
7:35 am
he also said he was down on his back. trayvon martin was straddling him and that trayvon saw the gun and reached for it. i don't know how he could have seen through zimmerman's body and grabbed for it. it was a very dark and rainy night. that's sort of a physics problem we see in zimmerman's testimony. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. let us get a check of the weather. stephanie abrams is in for al. >> good morning. are you looking for a quick new hairdo this morning? i found one for you. what's your name? >> mitchell. >> how long did it take to do this? >> five minutes. >> does it hold up in the heat? >> yeah. >> it's not going to be as hot as it was yesterday, but still very humid.

we're back n tom, good morning again. >> reporter: it is possible. we haven't had a u.s. carrier involved in a major airline crash, fatal crash, in 11 years. since november of 2001 in new york. not a u.s. big carrier involved in a fatal crash since 2001. what's interesting here is when crashes do occur, they are
7:42 am
usually survivalable. the images of flight 214 are haunting. how is it to many people got out alive? only 1 out of 1.2 million flights will crash and most of the passengers on board will survive. everybody got out. everyone survived the cflight that went down in december of 2008. no fatalities when the pilot pulled off the miracle in the hudson in 2009. seats are made to absorb much of the sudden impact so passengers aren't catapulted through the plane.
7:43 am
interior carpeting and upholstery is now fire resistant. they recreate plane crashes and the science involved in surviving. once the plane comes to a rest, time is out of the essence. at 30 seconds, smoke can start filling the body of the plane. at 60 seconds, the burning plastics and the fuel and the fabrics can turn this smoke toxic. getting out is a matter of life or death. >> you want to stay low. use the armrest for support and come down the aisle following the path lighting. >> reporter: the key to survival, knowing where you were in the plane at all times and being prepared quickly. we always know exactly where the exit is when we sit down.
7:44 am
we take note of the nearest exit. many people will also count the seat backs to the nearest exit so they know how many seat backs they need to touch until they get to the exit. leave the personal belongings on board. if you try to get that out of the plane right then, you could be preventing other passengers from getting out. up next, the husband of nigella lawson is seeking for a divorce and his reasons for the split may be a bit surprising to you. we'll tell you more after this.

7:49 am
appeared to be a heated argument. michelle kosinski is in london with this story. good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah, this gets messy. charles saatchi said the photographs taken at a restaurant showed no more than a playful tiff. and is he said that to a newspaper, just making the public backlash even worse. but now he seems to compound that by stunningly voluntarily airing out even more of the public's -- of the couple's very private dirty laundry to the press. the pictures showed this, sparking numerous psychologists and women's advocates to call it simply abuse. the police issued charles saatchi a formal caution for assault. and now saatchi is saying this to a tabloid newspaper. "i'm sorry to announce that nigella lawson and i are getting divorced. i am disappointed she was advised to make no public comment to explain that i abhor violence of any kind against
7:50 am
women and never physically abused her in any way. the photograph could have been her gary radniching my neck to get my attention as she has done in the past. my accidents were not violent. we're instinctively tactile people. i'm sorry she is upset. i'm more sorry this is the end of our marriage. i wish nigella the best for her future. she remains the most wonderful woman in the world." >> what he says, she won't take his calls, respond to his messages. and the only way of informing her that this marriage has broken down and he's going to launch a petition for divorce is through the pages of a newspaper. >> reporter: saatchi vehemently denies this was assault or he put pressure on nigella's neck. after the photos were published is when his wife after a decade moved out of their home. and so far the self-styled domestic goddess has said not a word to the press. what's interesting is that right after this argument happened at
7:51 am
the restaurant, the couple was back together. they were living together, even ate out at that same restaurant a few days afterward. it seems that only after the publication of these photos happened, according to what he says, that the pr surrounding it is what caused this final split. back to you guys. >> bizarre. all right, michelle kosinski in london, thank you. coming up on trending, the fan moment from the wimbledon final that's trending this morning. >> also, we'll talk to the british drought-buster himself, mr. andy murray. and when will we see the first photos of kim and kanye's baby girl, north? we'll ask kris jenner. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia -- thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic, widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. for some, as early as the first week of treatment. so now, i can plan my days and accomplish more.

8:40 am
famed survivalist and adventurer, bear grylls, hosting a new reality competition on nbc called "get out alive" and a brand-new book, "survival guide for life." bear, good to see you. always fun to have you here, especially when you don't have worms or grubs or anything in your pockets to share with me. >> i was going to say, you scrub up well. last time i saw you, you were in full mountaineering gear in a snow cave at 12,000 feet. i didn't know you wore a suit. >> in switzerland. it was cool. this show, i was reading last night, although it is an adventure competition type show, it's not about who finishes first. >> no. it's get out alive is not kind of a test of physical fitness and who is the best and the strongest. it's a much more character factory. and the wild revealing character. and, you know, i'm looking for people's journey and their growth and their effort. and all their kind of qualities that really help people survive. which is as much about humility
8:41 am
and determination as it is about knowing everything. because these guys didn't know everything. >> so, wait. in other words, you put a team on the edge of a cliff, and it's not who gets to the top of that first. it's who shows the most determination and character and grit in achieving the goal. >> totally. and there were couples, so it was father/son, mother/daughter, best friends, loved ones and i wanted to see those helping the weakest, carrying each other's packs. that's what this whole "get out alive" is about. sometimes you need to push people to see what they're really made. >> as we are looking at the footage, it's clear, you shot this in a stunning location, south island of new zealand. talk about some of the challenges. what did you put in front of these people? >> well, new zealand was great, because we had such a variety of terrain. and you've been there. you know what it's like. we have the high mountains and glaciers and rain forests and crazy weather. and you know, the whole series about putting people under the squeeze and seeing what they're made. and some people crumble and some people thrive.
8:42 am
and i always said, don't impress me with your words, impress me with your actions. and sometimes you need to take people big places like that to see that. >> if we can rerack that last tape, i want to get to that. if you look at some of the terrain you place these people on, the edge of a cliff, glacier, icy-cold river. there is one thing called entertainment, another thing called sheer danger. and as you're producing a show like this, how do you draw the line about what you can and can't have these people do? >> well, it's a balance. and i think the journeys grow. and at the start, they were, okay. and as these guys learn their skills and i could see they were capable of it, we extended the journey, pushed them a little bit more. but i said to them at the start, listen, you're coming to a big boys' playground, big boys' rules, i'm not going to mother you. i'm going to be with you. i'm going to back away. i'm going to see you how to do this. and that really was the appeal of the whole series, seeing these people who didn't know it all learn fast. and when you have to learn, you do. or you die. >> which is a little bit like
8:43 am
playing off the book you have just written, as well. it's about these survival skills and how to make it in life. and i would imagine it would have been great if they could have read that book before they took off on this journey. >> well, the book is all about just lessons i've learned about life and by getting stuff wrong is the honest answer. but there are lessons from everest and my military time and how to come alive in the big moments and get your goals and not listen to the dream-stealers. and be enthusiastic and all that kind of good stuff about not giving up when it's -- you know, smiling when it's raining. and all of this stuff we know, common sense, but nobody teaches in school. >> sounds great. the show sounds great, as well. bear, good to see you, as always. >> matt, pleasure. >> pleasure. you can catch the series premier of "get out alive" with bear grylls tonight, 9:00, 8:00 central time right here on nbc. up next, justin bieber's mom, patty mallette, with a message for teenagers. first, this is "today" on
8:44 am
8:45 am
8:46 am
♪ justin bieber is a sensation, of course. hit albums and 40 million twitter followers around the world. ♪ ♪ all around the world >> well, the 19-year-old owes much of his success to his mother, patty mallette. she hosted youtube videos of justin singing which caught the eye of music heavy weights years ago. but patty's life has not been without its own challenges and she wrote about them in her book, "nowhere but up" and is now releasing a new edition for teenagers. good to see you. welcome. >> thank you. >> so your book is searingly honest. now you've written a vision for teens. why do you feel like teens will listen? i mean, i'm thinking about most teenagers don't want to listen to any adults. >> right. i think teenagers definitely,
8:47 am
you know -- they don't always want to listen to their parents. but i think other adults sometimes they'll give an ear to. i know for me other adults would come into my life and speak to me. and then there's, you know, over 2 million twitter followers that call me mom and ask me these tough questions and they want to know. so i thought it was just a perfect opportunity. >> do you feel like a lot of those kids relate to you because they know of you as justin's mom. you say they call you mom. do you think that gives you access to them in a way that maybe others don't have? >> yeah, i think that i'm in a really unique position, you know? it's kind of like a bridge where the moms want to -- want to talk to me, because they want to know, hey, i'm a single mom too, and they can relate to that aspect. and how do i talk to my teenager. and then there's the teenagers that say i can't talk to my mom, but you're a young mom and i want to talk to you. so it's kind of like i say, parents listen to your kids. kids listen to your parents. >> the book is very, very honest, as i mentioned. and you have gone through some tough times in your life. how much of that were you able to put in this version tore teens? because you've talked about your
8:48 am
struggles with drug abuse, the fact that you had sexual abuse from a very young age. i mean, do you include that in this book? >> i do. i think, you know, teenagers today know more than we think they do. i think that they're -- they unfortunately experience more than we want them to. and i wanted to be really raw and honest. there's some rougher details that i leave out. but i really wanted to make it age-appropriate. but i also had, like, you know, statistics and discussion questions and things they can use to maybe go through with a parent or friend or something like that. >> well, let's talk about justin. of course, he's got some new music coming out soon, right? >> uh-huh. >> and there has been some uncharacteristic behavior from him, something we're not used to. always been such a good kid and now we see stories about him getting into a fight with a neighbor or paparazzi. some -- driving too fast. do you worry about him? do you feel like, gosh, is he going through a troubled time in his own life?
8:49 am
>> well, i think as parents we all worry about our kids, whether they're going off to college, you know, whatever -- whatever situation they're in. and i think at a certain age, the parenting style changes. and he's always been such a strong-willed child, you know. i talk about that. even in the story. and how i think i mentioned last time, his teachers would say "i have 30 students and 1. when justin is good the whole class is good, when justin is bad, the whole class is bad." but he had these amazing teachers and principals who would pull him aside and say "you know what, justin, you're a leader." and they would just, you know, take away the negative and focus on him being a leader. and he would come home and say, "mom, i'm a leader." and that's what i want to share with these teenagers. >> is there anything about what he's doing now, who he is hanging out with, that causes you certain, that you feel something other than just typical teenager growing pains?
8:50 am
>> of course. you know, i -- i talk to justin. you know, i text him and call him every day. as much as you can with an adult child that doesn't live with you. and he knows what i think. he knows -- we talk. and he knows what i think. and, you know, it's -- it's stuff that obviously i can't share with the whole world. but we definitely talk. >> he still listens to mom. >> i hope i'm still a big voice in his ear, yes. >> well i know you've got a lot of listeners, 2 million twitter followers for patty mallette, alone. the book is "nowhere but up." appreciate having you here. >> thank you so much. coming up next, we talk about some common worries, people ask is it normal to do this or that. dr. gail saltz will be here. she'll tell us if we're normal. first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:51 am
8:52 am
♪ back now at 8:52 with a new series we're calling "is this normal." from stressing over the kids to arguments with friends, it's a question we all ask of ourselves from time to time. >> that's right. psychiatrist gail saltz is here to help us sort it out. gail, good morning. >> good morning. >> can we define normal? >> i think the best way to define it is if you have a mood or behavior or something that is causing dysfunction, real dysfunction, in work, in relationships, in your ability to be in the world, then that we would say is abnormal. >> okay. >> but otherwise, lots of
8:53 am
things. lots of things that people are concerned about really are normal. >> well, we put the call out to our viewers. and got some letters. one person wrote, is it normal to keep thinking about the argument i had with my once very close younger sister. on june 22, we had a talk about things and she started yelling at me so i stood up and left. i'm so hurt over this, i'm on the verge of tears every day. is that normal? >> what do you guys think? >> i think the everyday is the problem. if from time to time you think about it and you're on the verge of tears, fine. but every day? >> this is normal. it's called resume nation. which comes from the term ruminating, a cow that chews its cudd over and over again but doesn't swallow. a thought you have about something in the past that upset you that you think about over and over again and can't stop. you both probably do it. >> i call it obsessing. >> women ruminate more than men and it's normal and often unproductive. but -- >> until when? >> some people do it enough that it does cause depression.
8:54 am
before it's depression, it's still normal. what you can do, however, is make a list of what you can do about your situation and then every time you ruminate, do something distracting that is positive like going for a run or listen to music to break the cycle. >> pam from spokane, washington out on the plaza with a question. hi, pam. good morning. >> good morning, gail. i'm wondering, is it normal to laugh hysterically at a funeral? >> well, actually, pam, it is normal. it's strange and people don't like it, but it's normal. the reason is, the people do laugh at funerals is because thinking about death and mortality is very anxiety-producing. and when some people get really anxious, they laugh. and then the more it feels like an inappropriate reaction, the more they laugh. because the more anxious they are getting. >> cue the mary tyler moore tape. >> exactly, exactly. so the -- obviously you don't really want to laugh at a funeral. so if that's happening, you can do something else to try to relieve your anxiety.
8:55 am
taking slow, deep breaths. sometimes actually biting the insides of your cheeks actually -- something that sort of pings you that is like a stress-reliever. >> or think about that fight you had with your younger sister that makes you cry every day. >> i wouldn't advise that. >> here's another letter from a viewer. the love of my life left me two years ago for another woman. i can't seem to get over this and move on. all i do is cry over him. i feel as if i'm not good enough and will be alone forever. i feel as if there is nothing left in life. i don't know what to do. two years is a long time. >> a long time. >> at this level of upset. >> it is. and here's the thing. two years of thinking some time, some day about the person you miss or anger you feel at being left is normal. but when life doesn't hold anything for you any longer, then i start to think about depression. so if this person is thinking about it all of the time, crying a lot, if they can't sleep, if they haven't been able to move on with other relationships at all, and they're not functioning in life, that's depression.
8:56 am
>> why is that not ruminating? why is that different from the first one? >> other symptoms besides thinking about it. >> oh, okay. >> so if you're not able to function and move on with a relationship, if you're not doing well in work and that is depression. and let me say, that can occur from a break-up. >> finally, gail, is matt normal? oh, we're out of time. >> i'm sorry -- are you sure? >> it's a quick answer. >> no time for that. >> back after your local news. . it is 8:56 monday morning, i'm laura garcia-cannon. the ntsb will hold a briefing at 11:30 to update us on the asiana flight. preliminary reports show that it approached too low, too slow to land safely. i want to check the forecast now with meteorologist christina

a great place to bring the kids and experience it and see the sights and do everything. so we did. here is at -- navy pier on the ferris wheel. and we also did a little shed aquarium. >> isn't that amazing, shed aquarium? >> the ray exhibit so much fun. lake michigan, paddle boarding, the kids had a blast, the water was great. and we had a great time. we even went to a cubs game, fourth row in, fantastic. >> oh, my gosh. >> soriano, two home runs against the pirates. so i think overall, huge success. >> you just touched every base. >> i think so. almost every base. home run for sure. >> good. we're glad to have you back. news to cover this morning. that plane crash in san francisco, asiana airlines 214 at sfo, the international airport there, still a lot of questions surrounding it. the man at the controls, we know, was attempting his first landing of a 777 at that
9:02 am
airport. he had only 43 hours on the boeing 777, but nearly 10,000 hours on other air crafts. >> still unclear what the exact reason wasp. it seems like the flight was coming in low and slow, according to ntsb officials. so whether or not the pilot's inexperience on that aircraft, i think is still a question. but we did hear from an ntsb spokesperson earlier and she said that's all being weighed in, of course. but he did have a lot of flight hours on the 747. >> right. >> and a lot of other aircraft. >> i was talking to a pit expert this morning who said the 43 number while sounds shocking, only 43 hours in the plane, shouldn't think too much about that, because he's had 10,000 hours total at the helm of similar planes and did a lot of work in simulators. so if this was, in fact, pilot error, there was no real excuse. the inexperience shouldn't have come into play. but you look at these pictures. and the fact that only -- >> two people. >> two people died. and we mourn the loss of two 16-year-old girls who were coming from china to study in
9:03 am
the united states -- >> exchange program here. >> reports that maybe one of them was actually run over by an emergency vehicle? >> i can't even imagine. >> which is just horrible. >> horrific. >> but perhaps as few then as one person dying in a crash just speaks to the level of safety and perhaps the level of miracle that all these people got out. >> absolutely. you see the break-apart of that plane and the fire on the runway, and it is remarkable when you think about that. but asiana airline did release a statement saying asiana airlines is currently investigating the cause of the accident and will cooperate with government officials. >> we know the ntsb is looking into this. we'll hear a lot more about that story coming up. some lighter fare to tell you about. eliot spitzer. >> yes. >> here in new york city. jumping back -- >> former governor of new york. >> announced he's going to run for new york city comptroller, keeping an eye on the finances in the city. resigned five years ago in 2008 after it was revealed he was a client of an exclusive prostitution ring. >> no one can forget client number nine, right?
9:04 am
>> client number nine in the black socks no question about that. he's got until midnight thursday to collect about 3,000, 4,000 signatures, which he shouldn't have a problem doing. he told the "new york post", i hope people forgive me and give me a second chance. we'll let you read along the headlines. >> this decision coupled with that of anthony weiner is gold and the full employment act for "new york post" headline writers. >> where you can expect a lot more of those headlines. i guess begs the question, can people forgive and forget something like that? and i guess we'll have to wait and see how voters, you know, respond. it all comes down to how they -- if they show up at the polls and vote him in. >> i think there is no question that spitzer looked at the way anthony weiner has handled his problem -- >> and mark sanford in north carolina, as well. >> that anthony weiner could reentreprener reenter the frey and be competitive in the mayoral race and take it head-on, talk about what he did, why he did it, ask
9:05 am
for forgiveness. we'll see if he becomes mayor. but either way, he has done better than a lot of people thought he would. >> certainly the front-runner, now, according to the latest polls. >> along with christine quinn. i think -- >> i think everybody loves a good comeback story. it will be interesting to see where this goes from here. >> yes, it will. >> we'll be watching and reporting a lot of the . >> so will the "new york post." this next story hits home. >> something we can all relate to. >> the pain of parenthood. the stir website has ranked seven common children's toys according to what's most painful to step on. >> they did the research. >> scientific research. >> here's the deal. stepping on a metal jack is the big winner. 10 out of 10. >> i'm surprised, because actually these are plastic jacks. kind of terrible. but when was the last time you played with jacks? >> never. last time was never. >> i think my kids got some at a birthday party as a goody bag gift and i think they actually played with them. and i think i did step on one
9:06 am
then. i would give it a 10 out of 10 as well. >> that would be painful. >> this is something i know very well. i step on one of these just about every day. stir gave it a 7 out of 10 on the pain scale. i'd say it's higher than that. >> yeah, that's an 8. >> i have had them embedded in place. >> you know what they'll do until you step on it -- sticks on your foot so you step a second time. crippling. >> double whammy. >> did you know that a stuffed toy actually got a 3 out of 10, because people think they have stepped on a family pet and freak out. >> i think, yeah, especially if it squeals when you step on it. wait, that wasn't my cat lexi, was it? okay. >> so what's your worst? >> my worst, actually, is not a toy. but feeding luke once when he was a toddler in his terrible s. he took his fork and was like no, i don't want that. i actually had the fork impaled. >> oh! >> i had tine marks in my face. >> you had a fork sticking out
9:07 am
of your face? that's unbelievable. >> pelted by a fork. bad. >> any photographs of that? >> no. thank goodness mary in makeup was able to cover -- what happened to you? you've got two little holes right here. i'm like,um, long story. >> i think that shows what kind of husband i am. wait, leave it in there. >> photographic evidence. >> just tweet it out immediately. >> what was your worst? >> my consistent worst are the figures my son george, 4 today, happy birthday. a soldier or woody from "toy story" lying on their back and the arms and legs up so you get a four-pronged stick into your foot. >> i'm surprised it's not on this list, stepping on a dirty diaper. have you ever done that? >> why is it on the floor? is the big question? >> it's painful -- sometimes you're changing them and forget and you're just like -- whoops? >> you change them and sort of throw them around the room? lying around the house? >> you know, sometimes you're
9:08 am
just not quick to, you know -- just sitting there. >> sure. >> and you step in it? >> calls into question, i know -- no. just the squishiness factor. doesn't hurt. >> your beautiful home littered with dir dediapers. >> no diapers, no. >> another one couples deal with. a new study that found men get -- >> don't you love these studies we find out of who knows where? >> found men get sick of shopping after 26 minutes. >> what? >> women tire of shopping -- >> 26 minutes? >> usually after two hours. because they haven't found anything they like. not -- >> have you ever lasted 26 minutes? >> i was going to say -- >> shopping? >> i was going to say, that's a big number. >> i think two minutes is his max. >> i have to get out of there. >> start breaking into a sweat. >> i can't do it. that's why these stores have these great areas where the guys all sit and couches and chairs and magazines and now a lot of them put tvs up there. >> if they're smart, make it more like the espn zone and have it all set up, your beers and

windex touch-up cleaner. of those days where you cried at work or maybe you yelled at a co-worker. it is natural to express emotion. but is there a place for it at the office? >> a recent huffington post article got us thinking about that. we brought in nicole williams, career expert for linkedin, and a psychiatrist. good morning to both of you. >> good morning to you. >> nicole, we're moving to a place where there are more women at the top. >> sure. >> in workplaces. does that mean in all it's a more women-friendly workplace emotionally? >> yeah, i think there is some emotion that is acceptable at the workplace. but by and large, regardless of gender and regardless of the fact there are more women at the top, i think crying is inappropriate in the workplace. especially if we're talking about the full-fledged bawl or full-fledged yell. i think that emotion is something that we're looking for people to have some control over. in a professional context. so, you know, while yes, i think we may see more of t it's certainly more of a discussion point at this point. >> there's a certain stereotype,
9:42 am
i think, that women tend to show more emotion. all emotions, whether it's crying to getting angry and upset at work, as well. you think -- >> and i think there is some truth to that. i do. >> i think we can all say -- >> i think there is some truth to it, but i also think that nurture plays a big role, too. i think that from the time boys are little, they're told don't cry. if they get hit by the baseball, you're told you really need to be a man, stop that. so i think that we really can't separate that. i see lots of men in my practice who are very emotional. i'm an emotional man. you know, the fact that men get upset shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. i think that men are just much less likely to exhibit that emotion in the workplace, because they're fearful of what that might mean to them and what their co-workers might think. >> we asked our viewers a simple question. we polled our audience to see if they thought it was appropriate to cry at the workplace. we have the results. 60% said yes, if it's done privately. 24% say no, if it's in front of others. 16% say never. you surprised by these numbers, nicole? >> you know what, no.
9:43 am
and i think that, you know, that's the important part. in private. you know, you can have emotion in the workplace. you know, there are going to be moments, professionally, where, you know, you're hitting the edge. and you know, escape to the rest room, have a conversation with your partner at night. the problem is, with crying, there is a power imbalance. you're making people uncomfortable. and when women cry in particular, we get called on the she is just crying to get her own way kind of thing. >> not strong enough. can't go to the boss about something. >> yeah, yeah. >> but i think you just need to really keep in mind, trying to be what we call emotionally intelligent, your eq rather than iq, this idea of being able to understand, perceive and control your emotions. everybody has strong emotions in the workplace, outside of the workplace. but you really want to be effective in managing that. so you can then get what you're looking for. because if you're yelling, if you're crying, much less likely to have that desired result. >> what about other emotions like anger?
9:44 am
i mean, some say women are perceived as difficult if they're -- if they show they're angry, while men are perceived as tough and go-getters. >> and powerful. >> and powerful. >> yeah, there is definitely gender divides, of course. i think that anger, regardless, is one of those things you definitely want to keep under control. i think from a man perspective, you've got the, you know, the physical stature that can be very threatening, frankly. and perceived as threatening. and then you're right. for women, it's -- you're the "b" word because you've exuded some anger. anger is a tough one. >> i think we might see a shift. whenever you're in a group, whatever that group may be, you have a perceived way of the way you need to act to be part of that group. if it's a male-dominant workplace, then the woman is going to feel some sort of pressure to behave in some sort of way. maybe anger coming from her would not be seen as appropriate. if you're a more woman-dominant field, maybe a teacher or nurse
9:45 am
or something like that, i think there are different expectations. so i think that people will view some of these things differently, depending on the context in which these emotions are being expressed. >> so what we learned is your anger is okay and my crying is okay. we've flipped the gender roles. >> love it. >> good. >> thanks so much. great to see you both. >> good to have you guys here. coming up next, kitchen gadgets that are going to blow your mind. >> i can't wait, really? >> new ice cream scoop for summer? come on. or a salad spinner? >> all right after this.

10:00 am
from nbc news, this is "today" we are breaking into the "today" show to take you live to sfo where san francisco police are about to a press conference featuring first responders. the ntsb says the plane in saturday's deadly crash at sfo was flying significantly below the target speed as it approached the airport. the pilot tried to abort the
10:01 am
landing just as it approached the runway. two of the 307 were killed. they will be inspecting all landing equipment on boeing 777's owned by asiana and korean air. there is another conference scheduled at 11:30. that is featuring the ntsb. this he will update us on their latest findings in regards to the crashed flight at sfo. that starts at 11:30. we'll also bring that to you live, of course. logon at any time to to find out the latest information. we have reporters on the scene and we're covering this story from every angle as this happened saturday morning. and you can see the first responders there. i think that's chief greg sir there in the background there. joanne hayes white, san francisco fire chief is there as well. we are not sure who going to be taking the podium but we'll be
10:02 am
hearing from the first responders for the flight 214 as it came in to sfo on saturday. we've also been reporting all morning long that the parts of the two victims, two 16-year-olds who died in this crash, they are right now in the air. they have left china. they left china about 5:00 our time this morning. they are taking the very same route that their daughters took just a couple of days ago. that means they are flying asiana air. they had a stopover in seoul, south korea, about 6:20 this morning. they are scheduled to land at sfo a little bit later, obviously, this evening potentially tonight. once they do land, first order of business is to talk to the san mateo coroner conducting the autopsies on the two 16-year-olds who died in this crash. now, there is speculation that one of them did not die on impact, that she may have been
10:03 am
hit and killed by a first responder vehicle, by an emergency vehicle. we're hearing a fire truck may have hit this girl and that is what led to her death. that is not confirmed yet. that is just a speculation. san francisco mayor ed lee has been asked about that. he says that he cannot verify those reports. no official has verified, it of course. those findings will only be released by the san mateo county k coroner. we are waiting to hear from the coroner as well. the parents anxious to make their way to san francisco to find out the very latest about their daughters' death. the two girls who died in the crash, they were coming as a larger -- in a larger group to spend a three-week summer program down in southern california. basically, an english emergent program to get them ready for college in the united states. these two girls, they were friends. they've known each other for four years. we want to go ahead now and
10:04 am
listen in to this press conference. >> the spokeswoman for the fire department and the way it's going to work this morning is that the chief -- the fire chief and police chief will open up the press conference with a brief overview and then we'll hand it off to the first responders to give you first accounts as to what they experienced and please hold off all questions until the end. and that's pretty much it basically. right now, chief joanne hayes white of the fire department will join us. >> thank you. good morning, everyone. the goal of today's press briefing is to provide an interview. i know that many of you are concerned about the conditions we faced with asiana flight 214. what we're going to do is give you an overview of those conditions we faced, the organizational structure that we set up to respond to both the emergency.ency and the medical i'm here very proud of the members that stand behind me and all of the members of both san
10:05 am
francisco fire department and police department for the extraordinary efforts that they made, an enormous amount of teamwork that was displayed, heroism that was displayed to be able to attend to what we needed to do on saturday. we also have great assistance from san mateo county. unfortunately, they are not here with us today but they were a large part of our response and a large part of the reason why 123 people walked away from this airline crash on saturday. i'd also like to acknowledge those at the airport that we've worked with, again, this is something that i said before, that we train for and thank goodness for our training but it's not something that many people would see in their careers. i wanted to be able to provide the opportunity to have our first responders, true heroes, people that actually went on to the plane to assist passengers off in a very chaotic circumstance. the goal will be to give a narrative of conditions that we faced and the strategies that we
10:06 am
put together. the organizational structure in our incident command system to be able to address what we had to deal with on saturday. the other thing that i wanted to let you know is that there has been information and evidence to suggest that one of our fire apparatus may have come into contact with one of the two victims that were pronounced deceased at the scene. we will address that briefly. i will have the assistant deputy chief of our airport division address the steps that we took when we found out that that might be a possibility. and assure you that we're working closely with the ntsb as they conduct their investigation on all aspects but particularly on this aspect and as i said on saturday, our hearts go out to those that suffered losses, given the circumstances on saturday. i had the opportunity to visit some of the patients at sf general the other night, on saturday and yesterday morning. phenomenal work by san francisco general. they had 53 patients
10:07 am
transported. i believe there's less than -- as of yesterday, there is 19 still in the hospital. i think a few have been discharged. but the again, incredible teamwork that was displayed, people coming in offduty and rising to the occasion. i couldn't be prouder of the members of my department for the display, professionalism, and the training that they did to basically save many, many lives. with that, i'd like to now introduce the assistant chief, he works in san francisco overseeing division 3 but once we knew what we had, our three stations were quickly overwhelmed so we had resources come down, approximately 110 of our members come down from san francisco and the incident commander will give you an overview of how he set up organizationally their response. thank you. >> thank you, chief. >> state your name, please. >> good morning, everyone. i'm tom siragusa.
10:08 am
. i'm an assistant chief with the san francisco fire department. on saturday, july 6th, i was working in station 7, as the chief said. when the airport has an incident of this magnitude, resources from the city proper are dispatched down here. we were dispatched by our communication center, provided information and a first alarm response was struck to the airport to provide assistance for what was indicated to us as a plane crash and people on the plane were exiting via the chutes. to be quite honest with you, it's very limited information and we responded down here quite often for incidents and drills and feel like we have a very, very good working relationship trainingwise and responsewise with the airport. en route to the incident, i was given further information that in fact people were using the chutes to exit the plane and that there was information
10:09 am
provided to us from san mateo county fire department that people were still trapped on the plane. i did not have any indication that there was a fire involved at this point. i just understood that there had been an incident that took place and that a type of exit was taking place off of the airplane. when i approached approximately just past candlestick point, i noticed a column of smoke coming from the airport proper. it wasn't the dark smoke indicating what was eventually to happen. it was more of a light haze. i requested from our communications center if they had any information of there being a fire and at that point that information had not been passed on to our communications center. however, based on the fact that i saw a column of smoke, i raised the response level to a second alarm and we declared a yellow alert and really what a yellow alert means from a medical perspective, we're putting hospitals on notice that there's a potential for them
10:10 am
receiving victims. when i got to northfield access, came off the freeway heading left on to the airport proper, conditions began to rapidly change from what i was viewing from the airplane. i now had a significant column of smoke coming from the airplane itself. and i will say to you, you know, with all of the training, as the chief mentioned, the preparation, the expectationsat for what we do on a daily basis, to be honest, this is not something i ever expected to view in my career. as i approached the airplane, as my initial report was to the communications center, i have a large plane down, it's involved in fire and people are exiting the plane and the collection point had been established. at that point, i raised it to a third alarm and declared it as a red alert. and the red alert is we have
10:11 am
victims and the hospitals need to be notified at a higher level. i requested our mass casualty units on the scene. i got on the scene and i want to acknowledge the response of the san mateo county fire departments, specifically the battalion chief from san bruno, charlie barringer. we were joined at the hip. we quickly anthony robinson was the on-field incident commander and we got into a unified command. and i will tell you that i have never responded to a commercial airplane being down and being involved in fire. and i would venture to say that nobody that was on the scene that day had participated in an event like this. however, when you go back to the groundwork of what we are trained to do, some of the higher level of expectations when it comes to being an incident commander, i went right
10:12 am
through the check list and that included what the priorities were and clearly, based on the information that we had people still trapped on the plane, we were in a life mode, life priority to get on to that plane and to begin a rescue operation. number two, we needed to extinguish the fire. we needed to treat the victims, and we needed to search the tarmac and the water's area for potential victims. therefore, my organization fell right into play. on the outside of the plane, the aircraft rescue firefighting equipment was dealing with the exterior of the plane applying foam. firefighters from san francisco along with members of the san francisco international airport were doing something that many people might think -- and i'm telling you, it's above and beyond -- the expectations that firefighters would enter a plane that's involved in fire, one of the things that i haven't heard very much talk about was they are on a plane involved with
10:13 am
fire and in those wings of that plane is jet fuel. jet fuel is leaking out of the plane and our firefighters, under the direction of anthony robinson and battalion chief mark johnson entered the plane, began a primary search and began to extinguish fire. while that's going on, we have jet fuel that's leaking off of the plane. so we're dealing with those objectives. clearly the other objective was dealing with the multicasualty incident or mass casualty incident that we had in please a a rescue captain was ready to begin the roles. simultaneous to that, i assigned a captain along with san mateo county fire department crews to begin a search of the tarmac for any potential victims that may be on the tarmac. and i also had information that we may have had victims in the water. so along those lines, between san mateo county, the coast
10:14 am
guard, and san francisco fire department response including the fire department, fireboat, we had assets on the water. so from an organizational structure, the mode was to be offensive in dealing with the life safety concerns. the objectives were extinguish the fire, begin treatment of the civilians, transportation of them, and to conduct a primary search of that airplane under the most extreme circumstances and to the two lieutenants from the international airport that are here that were the first responders to arrive on the scene, above and beyond is insufficient to say what they did. and to the police officers that were involved and the assistance of evacuating very, very seriously injured people from the plane is incredible, remarkable, i don't have enough adjectives to say what it was. i will tell you, from an organizational perspective, i was in unified command with the san mateo county fire
10:15 am
department, san francisco police department, with the fbi, members of san francisco international airport, a very unique moment took place and chief hastings-white arrived after this, when a member of the crew, a flight attendant came to us because her number one concern was, how many people were on the plane and we needed to begin an accountability. this crew member had the manifest and her concern was that she had four of her flight attendants that were unaccounted for. we had done a search of the plane but we had four people that were still missing. in the middle of what we have all observed, the fire conditions that existed on that plane, firefighters from san francisco international airport and from san francisco fire department, once again went on to that plane and conducted another search under the most trying of circumstances. and i couldn't be more proud of what they did. all in all, the response, as i
10:16 am
said earlier, was for me it was surreal but we went in to the mode that we operate in is to follow the checklist of priorities, objectives, and carrying out the tactics employed and there's very, very few things that as an instant commander i would have done differently, looking back on it, and i think that was because of the great cooperation of our partners in the police department, from the san mateo county fire departments, our close interaction with san francisco international airport for this to turn out the way it did. thank you. >> thank you, chief siragusa for your ceremony. i'd like to ask lieutenant chrissy simmons to address what she encountered when she was one of the first responders on the scene on saturday. lieutenant emmons. >> my last name is spelled
10:17 am
emmons. my mother calls me chrissy. my given name is christine, though. >> spelling for us. >> crissy, christine, christine. >> which do you plefr? >> i'll be crissy emmons today. yes, two ms. so on saturday i was assigned to the crash house, which is our nickname but it turned out to be a true event. i was on rescue 88 when the alert came in. so just a little history, a lot of times we get prealerts, which will be like an aircraft with some kind of mechanical issue, maybe a light indication, flaps, brakes, et cetera. those will be classified like an alert one or alert two.
10:18 am
so, you know, that's our normal response there. we tend to respond to mainly alert twos and alert ones. so i guess at 11:27 the alert was struck and the communication from the tower was, alert 3, alert 3, plane crash, plane crash. it was a female that dispatched us and i knew from her voice that the event we were going to was real. i'll be honest, i did not hear too much after that as far as suited up, my driver and i exited the firehouse and we saw -- we made a left turn and we saw a large column of smoke at the end of -- the approach of
10:19 am
the 28s. adrenaline was flowing at this time and i had to keep reminding my driver -- i hope he doesn't get mad -- but i had to keep reminding him, if we don't get there, we're not going to help anybody. and we carry our water up high on the arf vehicles. it's aircraft rescue firefighting vehicle so they can tip over. so we made it there -- i don't know for sure, but probably in less than one minute to the scene of the accident. this is rescue 88. and we take the position -- we like to refer to as the number -- excuse me. the 1:00 position and positioning your aircraft at an event, the nose of the plane is considered 12:00. so if i'm looking at the plane, we went to the left hand side. we position there because we had fire showing from the number two
10:20 am
engine and we had fire underneath the fuselage. my driver and i went right to work. we started applying agent, which was foam and i kept reminding him that we wanted to cool the fuselage and definitely try to put that engine fire out. so that was the initial response from the airport. also from my firehouse there was another arf vehicle that responded and i believe they responded to the backside or the 6:00 position of the plane. the fire -- we were able to knock down a good amount of fire and it went from dark black smoke to what looked to be semi-manageable condition. after -- at the corner of my eye
10:21 am
i saw rescue 33, which is an engine company pull up. i instructed my driver that i'd be getting out of the rig and first of all i didn't want him to hit me and i wanted him to know what i was going to do. i said, i'm going to grab my scott and i'm going around to the other side. so as i came around the other side i met up with lieutenant who was on engine 33 that day and we positioned -- or we brought in engine 33 and positioned it so that we could get into the plane. chutes were deployed, passengers were still coming down off of the chutes. i don't know if i should tell you what they did or what i -- i'll tell you what i saw him do. i saw him run up the chute of the aircraft. this was a chute that was deployed from what we call l-2, the left side door, second door. i said, if he can do it, i can
10:22 am
do it. so his crew that day was mike kirk. he's a firefighter paramedic. we visualized a large amount of fuel coming off of the wing section on the side that we were just about to enter and we grabbed the ready line, which is an inch and three quarter attack line from 33 and we went -- we climbed up the chute also and got into the plane. lieutenant said he was going to go to the left, towards the cockpit, to begin the primary search. i'm going to call him firefighter kirk and i went to the right to begin our primary search. we encountered fire initially as we got in to the fuselage, which we knocked down in temporary stages just to give us more time. we knew that this event -- we
10:23 am
were not running out of time but the conditions were going to possibly change very rapidly for us. as we proceeded down the fuselage, we -- i felt that the primary search was completed in a fashion that we had not passed any passengers up on that plane. about two-thirds of the way down, firefighter kirk asked me if he could run ahead and check to see what was going on at the back of the plane. the conditions as we went down the plane were getting better. most of the fire was in the front of the plane. so i said yes, grabbed the line. i also turned around and saw that there was fire impinging between the top of the fuselage and what we call the skin of the aircraft. so just to quick knock down there, firefighter kirk reported back that he had found four
10:24 am
passengers in the back of the plane. i radioed that we had four passengers stuck or trapped in the back of the plane. we continued to the back where we had a multitude of patients. i don't know how to say this. there was a variety as far as what was going on. we had elderly, we had a woman with a gentleman who was standing over her, we had somebody that was partially trapped. as it turns out, there was a small person stuck between the seats and i think that was it as far as personnel. so rescue 56 responded to the rear of the aircraft and assisted in evacuating these victims. we had lieutenant brown -- i think i'd like to give credit to
10:25 am
a lot of people today that assisted in the evacuation of these people because it was hectic, it was -- the back of the plane did not hold up as well as the front of the plane. as we proceeded down, the seats and the fuselage was definitely more impacted than any other part of the plane. so if i could, i'd like to just give you guys some -- okay. engine 56, we had rebecca atwater and roger phillips were the two firefighters assigned to that rig. myself, dave came down and assisted us and mike kirk was
10:26 am
there and we had a very brave san francisco police officer enter the plane with no s. s.e.d. -- and jim cunningham. i want to thank him because we needed everybody that day. so most of the ex triindications -- two of the extrications happened through the rear of the aircraft where a whole was created when they lost the tail section. there were two nonambulatory patients that we put on backboards and one other person was just basically taken out of the plane. so after we removed the five victims or passengers -- the conditions inside the plane were changing very rapidly. when we first got back there and saw these people, it was actually pretty clear back there. there was not a lot of smoke.
10:27 am
there was not a lot of fire. but by the time we removed the final victim, the conditions were that the fire was coming down on us. we had heavy, black smoke. so i feel very lucky and blessed that we were able to get those people out in that time. when i got off the plane, i assisted in taking one of the nonambulatory patients to triage and i was satisfied, i was happy. i felt like there was no -- there was nobody left on that plane. i felt confident that the plane was gone through well and we did not leave anybody there in that plane. so at that time, my mode changed to, it's just a fire now.
10:28 am
so that's basically what i did. all right. >> thank you, lieutenant emmons. wonderful job. i'd next like to introduce from san francisco international airport assigned from the san francisco fire department, lieutenant dave monaverte. >> first off, i'd like to apologize to you all. i'm very uncomfortable up here. i'm not too good in front of a front. my name is dave monteverdi. i'm a lieutenant. the day started off -- usually my position is at the house with crissy. but i worked an extra day and i was lieutenant on engine 33 that day. it started out as a busy day.
10:29 am
we were at a run at the terminal clearing a run. we just cleared it. we just got out of the jetway and were walking down the stairs and over the radio came an alert 3 plane crash. that's all we heard. we got a different dispatch from fire control. the one crissy got came from fire control. we had a different dispatcher. the only words were, plane crash. i was with firefighter paramedic kirk that day and firefighter michelle grinestaff. we rushed to the rig. since we were already at a call, we were in our turnout gears so didn't have to waste any time suiting up. all you could see acrass toss tr field was dark smoke and the plane was on its belly. so we just rushed -- went right straight to it. the air traffic control was very
10:30 am
good. they cleared the runways for us. all we had to do was drive straight to the incident. the whole time i was looking and it seemed to be surreal, like it wasn't happening. we finally get to the scene and since everybody seemed to be showing up at the same time, our vehicles are showing up. i established a command and took over operations and at that time crissy local 88 was at the 1:00 position. they were applying foam. right away you could see the black smoke -- >> for the last 30 minutes we've been listening to first responders of flight 214. of course, the boeing 777 that crashed at sfo on saturday. we are hearing from these first responders, both from the san francisco fire department and also from san francisco police. this is a joint news conference. we're going to stick with this breaking into the regularly scheduled programming of the "today" show. the big takeaway so far is that
10:31 am
joanne hayes white, she says they will in fact address speculation that an emergency vehicle, specifically a fire truck, hit one of the two 16-year-old victims of the crashed flight. that's potentially how this young girl, the 16-year-old died. this is speculation, only a possibility at this point. autopsies are being conducted right now by the san mateo county coroner. ultimately his findings will reveal whether or not in fact that is true. again, this is a press conference going on at sfo between san francisco fire department and san francisco police. we will continue to listen in. >> he was the last one off, i believe. so we got up there, fed the line, crissy banked right towards the ear of the aircraft and i fed them line so they could go down further and i believe they had active fire that they extinguished right off the bat there. i banked left to the cockpit to see if anybody was up there. i got to the cockpit and pretty much i didn't see anybody.
10:32 am
the conditions were smoking dark but it wasn't like i was blind. i could emit things out and flashlight. i was pretty confident i didn't see anybody up there. i went back towards the rear of the aircraft and crissy and mike -- like she said, further we got down, visibility got better and better and it was quite evident that there was nobody in the seats. everything looked intact. not intact but you could see that everybody exited their seats. we went further and further down and that's when we saw an elderly gentleman in his seat. he could not move. and then at that time i believe the other companies were coming in from the rear of the aircraft and also officer cunningham who we saw in there. i still couldn't believe i saw him in there without protective equipment and my hat goes off to you.
10:33 am
and then after that, since i was still in operations, we needed to get equipment to extricate some of the people out of the aircraft. we called for backboards so we could load them up and get them out. while all of that was going on, i believe mike kirk, firefighter kirk was extricating a person, an individual at the bulkhead still on top of him. he did an excellent job. he got the person out and they got that person out the back. and then -- and then also firefighter sally was there and she was aiding. i believe there was one lady who had fractures in her leg who couldn't move. i think they put her on a backboard, if i'm not mistaken. pretty much, that was it. we had one gentleman left further in the back, maybe seven or eight rows up and he was
10:34 am
growni groaning. we were running out of time. we had no choice. we stood him up and amazingly he started shuffling his feet. so that was a good sign. we got to the rear of the aircraft again and we were able to get him out. that was pretty much the last person off the plane. we radioed to command that we did our primary search, all passengers were off the aircraft and that we would be going to an exterior mode and basically we're going to -- since serving clear inside, we're not worried about passengers' lives anymore, we're concerned about our safety, and we just went to putting the fire out from the outside. that just involved the -- bringing the arf rigs in, they had to fill up three, four times with water back and forth and i have to say that we had emergency members come in off
10:35 am
duty. they got in, they staffed extra rigs that we have. so once that happened, we had all of the capacity we needed and we just bombarded it and it finally went out. and that's pretty much what i did. >> so as you can see, pretty incredible stories from our first responders, those first on the scene. i wanted to acknowledge you and it is not -- they are not accustomed to addressing a large group of media and what stands out to me is their humility and their acknowledgement of the team and that's what the fire service is all about, is about the team. i'd also like to acknowledge officer jim cunningham for his bravery. he -- we have training in this. we wear protective equipment and he joined in, recognizing that we needed someone else and for that, i'm truly impressed. as you can tell, we had our hands full with the aircraft.
10:36 am
i got on scene within 20 minutes. controlling and suppressing the fire that we had, as big of a piece, if not bigger, is the medical component and i would like to give particular credit, he's not here today but he responded to the city from the medical group supervisor, stewart beach who did a phenomenal job in tracking and organizing the medical group side of this incident. today we have with us from the san francisco international airport and he also did a wonderful job rescue captain tony malloy. what tony did was oversee the triage and treatment area. the comments received from the medical personnel, the doctors, nurses was that without the treatment and the early detection of the most seriously injured and the prioritization of getting them to where they needed to go, there would
10:37 am
definitely have been more lives lost. so i'd like to have rescue captain malloy give you a snapshot of what he did at the treatment and triage area. >> hello. my name is tony malloy, molloy. when i responded to the airport, stewart beach, who is rc-3, was dispatched. stewart actually held my position as he rescued captain at the airport previously. he was very familiar with all of the training that we do here. so we were lucky to have him here that day. he was just setting up the ics structure. prior to his arrival, we had the airport medics and emts staffed to handle the 300 people coming
10:38 am
off the plane. firefighter people were doing one heck of a job, in my opinion. we are proud of everything that they did and to be associated with them. so we had rick wedland who started as the medical group supervisor. he was working with emt tony kato and meyer gordon on rescue 91. no. meyer was working with tony. i'm sorry. stewart was the mgs. we had gotten all of the passengers over into the right of the aircraft, if you're facing it, towards the taxiway. and we were setting up our treatment areas. so in something of this nature, we have our red patients, our yellow patients, and green patients. what i was able to do was organize was our mutual aid response from san francisco who
10:39 am
were already doing the triage, engine 44, 43, 42. we organized in red treatment, yellow treatment, green treatment area. we were able to organize with amr with the transportation leadership and mike marsh from san mateo did a phenomenal job. just amazing the way we were able to get the people loaded and out of here as quickly as we did. so we set up -- we started right away loading the red patients, moving them out, moved the yellow patients out, and then we cleared the green patients to the international terminal which is per the policy that we have here at the airport. once we knew the amount of patients we had over there, potential patients, we set up a secondary medical group headed by another rescue captain from
10:40 am
the city and we were able to again retriage. i don't have the exact number before me. but over 100 patients there who eventually got transported to local hospitals. so the initial triage on the airfield were the reds and the yellows. we retriaged all of the greens. group effort by everyone involved on the ems side. difficult circumstances, 180 people transported to hospitals, phenomenal. that's basically what we saw that day, what we had ems-wise. thanks. >> next i'd like to introduce newly selected assistant deputy chief at the airport and i have
10:41 am
to say he's also done a phenomenal job. due to retirement of my previous chief at the airport, captain dale carnes was selected by me to oversee the airport. his first day was at san francisco international airport and five days later we encountered onaturday and he's done also done a great job of supporting the team at san francisco international airport. he will give you a brief overview of his role that day. this is chief deputy karnes. >> good morning, my name is dale carnes. i'm assistant deputy chief of the san francisco fire department and as chief hayes-white stated, i'm in charge of the roughly 90 men and women who make up the airport rescue division here at san francisco international airport what we call sfo. before i go on, i'd like to
10:42 am
state how proud i am of the officers and firefighters that make up the airport division here. with the conditions that they faced on saturday, and the level to which they performed, i feel it's nothing short of extraordinary and i couldn't be more proud of them. i also would like to acknowledge again, as we already have, the efforts of everybody involved as far as the law enforcement and agencies from san mateo county, the flight crew in attendance and performance that they put on saturday as well and the operational support staff from sfo. here we are literally a small slice of the city and county of san francisco. kind of a microcausem of our community. every agency is represented here at sfo. we work very closely together in what i consider more of a family
10:43 am
environment and that relationship or those relationships actually showed very visibly on saturday. and i think that what we saw is a very successful end of this event on saturday is definitely the result of a large amount of people from multiple agencies and organizations performing at an incredibly high level and incredible professionalism as well. my goal on saturday was to be our agency representative in the emergency operation center, or eoc here inside the terminal. i arrived poll 25 to 30 minutes into the incident. roughly two-thirds of the way through the incident as we were transitioning from the fire attack and rescue phase into both overhauling the fire and aircraft and starting to concentrate on the treatment and transport of patients, it became aware to one of our fire
10:44 am
battalion chiefs may have been contacted by one of our apparatus at an unknown point during the incident. he immediately made that information known to chief siragusa as commander. within moments that was run up our chain of command, both deputy chief gonzales, chief hayes-white and myself were made aware of it and immediately thereafter our command element from san francisco police department as well as the fbi were made aware of this potential situation. as you can imagine, it immediately became an investigation. once it -- once the scene was safe and we considered the aircraft secure and we had all of our patients transport off the initial scene, the scene was
10:45 am
locked down and secured and became part of the formal investigation. the san francisco fire department is directly supporting not only the san francisco police department but also the ntsb and the san mateo coroner's office, the county coroner's office with this investigation and we're also conducting an internal investigation of our own trying to clearly establish the facts of what happened. as you can imagine, it's a very dynamic environment, dealing with an active aircraft fire and trying to rescue somewhere in the realm of 300 victims. so at this time, because we have not clearly defined and established those facts, we cannot answer your questions. anything that we might offer at this point will be simply conjecture and would also complicate the investigation and we're just not willing to do that. so once the investigation is complete and we have met with all of the stake holders involved in the investigation, we will be forwarding that
10:46 am
information on to you folks. thank you. >> thank you, chief carnes. we talk about it a lot. we're not only professional colleagues but we're good friends. we've known each other for a long time and i can't say enough about the gentleman standing behind me. i consider him -- we joke about it sometimes, but it's the truth. my public safety partner. greg sir, their role was tremendous that day. it was lesser than ours but i can tell you, having someone standing right next to me during this incident was amazing. and i'd like to acknowledge all of the men and women of the san francisco police department for the work they do every single day for our city and here at the airport, particularly those coming from san francisco airport. they have a bureau down here under the direction of deputy denise schmidt who is also here.
10:47 am
i'd like to now introduce police chief greg sir to give his overview. >> thanks, chief. if you're not impressed with the stories that you've just heard, i've heard them before and just wow is the only word that just keeps popping in my mind at the performance of the first responders with regard to this incident. on top of the agencies to whom we also, the performance of the men and women behind me that day was nothing short of incredible. there were also unsung heroes. the airport maintained the holding areas, the passengers that disembarked. as far as the police department's roles on saturday, one of the very first people to even see the crash was officer jeff brown. he's over here. canine unit was actually on the air field when he saw the plane crash and put it out to dispatch, one of the first
10:48 am
descriptors, if you will. officer jim cunningham who you heard from already and as they ran to the front of the craft where you might have heard me mention on saturday, the asiana crew was begging for knifes so that they could free passengers to enable their escape. officer lee actually handed his knife to one of the pilots as officer cunningham tossed his up there and they began to free passengers leaving from the plane. at which point they asked, is everybody off? and they noticed that the rear of the plane there was still people leaving. they ran to the rear of the plane. as has already been mentioned by our brothers and sisters, he entered the plane without protective equipment. he even had a presence of mind when he saw an iphone knowing that somebody would be looking for a loved one by calling that iphone. it's unbelievable to have that
10:49 am
sort of calm and presence of mind in which you can imagine happened. lieutenant gialoni -- common spelling -- he actually entered the plane as well and seeing smoke and flame and hearing crackling and popping, was assisting officer cunningham. he saw one man in great pain without having anybody there, they got him off the plane and actual flight attendant was tending to a woman with serious, serious head trauma. again, they assisted her in getting that woman off the plane. and on and on. officer stewart moulder who has medical experience from his time in the plane, he was assisting people off. and very quickly, if i may, jeff
10:50 am
brown, martin scanlan, sanjay, pun, john glenn, michael king, donald mcintyre, donald, officer antoinette were all on seen that day and the leadership of the command staff here at the airport, deputy chief schmidt, captain pardini in the department operations center all in support of the firefighting effort. no one has mentioned that special agent curtis groberg was there on the scene managing back and forth with the ntsb, myself, chief hayes white. he was terrific. who we never met. it all came together that day. i think you're hearing in my voice two very proud chiefs and without further ado i'm going to bring out the chief who can
10:51 am
spell his name. >> hello, everyone. i'm lieutenant gaetamo, last name is caltagirone. so i was the incident commander for the san francisco police department on saturday and the first thing i heard over the radio was just a crash coming from one of my officers. and the first thing of my thinking, it's just a vehicle crash or a car that has crashed with a vehicle on the airport runways. the next thing i hear, it's an airplane crash. i look outside my window and i see the airplane set, starting to smoke. all my officers who i was in
10:52 am
charge immediately acknowledged the crash and responded to the scene. it was an amazing team effort and we talk about team, the san francisco splits department working in kicks with the outside police department. we truly worked as a team and as a family. we all came together and we all knew what jobs we had to do. my guys and gals who are under my command immediately went into action. and as a boss it was amazing to see that i really didn't need to tell them much to do. they knew what they had to do. they -- they weren't worrying about themselves. they were worried about the lives of the people that they needed to save. they immediately went into action and as you already heard, officer jim cunningham did an amazing job.
10:53 am
he went in. he was inside the plane. and being a police officer a long time, i saw that, you don't leave your partner behind and he's inside the plane so i followed suit behind him and as i entered the plane, he's tearing apart the plane to make the entry -- the exitway bigger so he's handing me seats, panels, throwing them outside and we're grabbing people to pull out. i'm able to step out and i see all of my other officers assisting all of those injured passengers on the ground doing crowd control, making sure people are taken care of, pulling people away from the site. it was so surreal. if you look at so much chaos going on and it was quiet. and we spoke about this. there was -- it is probably very
10:54 am
loud out there but it was quiet and everybody was doing what they were trained to do, save lives and way beyond. and i was very proud to see my officers out there not worrying about themselves and making sure that they would protect and help everybody as well as they could. we were calling for mutual aid and the fire department was doing the same thing as i was doing, asking for transportation, asking for mutual aid. so it's with conjunction of i would say brain power, working together to make sure we came up with the same common goal to come out of this as positive as possible. i could continue on with the many efforts of what we did and i'd be more than glad to do that later on but you can't ask for better people when you say you
10:55 am
train for something like this, you really don't train as well as when you actually jump into the action and do it. and it's just instinct and i'm speechless and when i approached my officers the next day at lineup, they were all exhausted. they could have easily called in sick but nobody did. everybody showed up. people were calling me saying that i'm off duty, i can come and work, whatever you need. and you could see it in their faces that they are dedicated officers who are more than willing to do whatever it takes to help and serve the public out here. and i commended them so well and you can see it also in the faces of everyone that was out there that day on saturday, that if you are not prone to the sun, you turn red. and there's a glow of red in
10:56 am
every one of the officers and firefighters' faces that you could see, that they were looking for sunscreen, shade, or any kind but there was nothing there. and they just kept fighting and we really worked hard. so the real efforts go to the firefighters and the two officers that really put their lives at stake at this. thank you very much. >> now i'd like to bring up officer jim cunningham. >> and actually derek. >> i'm officer jim cunningham. actually, james. but everybody calls me jim cunningham. i'm not used to speaking to a crowd like this. i'm a little nervous. i was driving my control car and i pulled inside century aircraft terminal, not too far from the
10:57 am
crash site. i stepped inside for a second to see what was going on, just to do a welfare check inside the building when i heard officer jeff brown very calmly, i think at the time, say that call for a code 3, 777 down. and i stopped for a second and i was in shock and then i asked where and he said out in the airfield and then i ran outside the building. i saw a tunnel of smoke and dust flying throughout the air. as i turned around, there's an ambulance ucsf having picked up a patient. the windows were rolled up and they stopped their ambulance and i said, stop, we need your help. there's a crash. and then i jumped in my patrol car and said, follow me. and i opened up the security gate next to the signature aircraft and then we're driving towards the safe road where the -- off the runway and i was calling for the dispatch to clear the runway, shut the
10:58 am
runway down. don't let anybody go on the runway. i was concerned it would be too dangerous and another plane would come down and hit us. i saw -- when the fire vehicles were going by and they followed us, i was trying to race out there. i remember the paramedics were behind me and they came up to my car and i was trying not to lead foot it. we got out to the scene. we pulled some distance apart. out of a safety zone for patients and just as i pulled up, got out, derek lee pulled up in his car and he doesn't want to talk about it but -- he wasn't driving a car that day but quickly got in a car, drove across the runway to get to the location. and right after that, officer stewart mould derived. we saw the two chutes coming down from the plane. there were a lot of people
10:59 am
hanging around the front of the plain and other people getting a safe distance away. some people were trying to get their luggage. we were trying to say when there's damage like this to an airplane t. could go up in a couple of minutes in a ball of flames. we saw older people on the ground, flight attendants trying to help them and they started yelling at us, if they had any knives, they needed knives. officer lee pulled out his knife and one of the crew came down another crew member, i tossed it to them. went up there and released passengers. the crew wanted to stay with the plane to make sure everybody was off. we kept saying, get down, get down. officer lee and i turned around and looked at the wing of the plane, it was gushing with fuel right next to us and we just -- we got to get out of here, let's go. so the people on the ground,
11:00 am
picked up and started bringing them towards the paramedics there. i'll probably forget things because a lot of things are hazy. and then when i turned around, got away from the plane safely, i turned around and saw -- >> right now you are listening live to the true heroes of crash flight 214 at sfo. you are hearing from the first responders, both from san francisco fire and also the san francisco police department. this news conference started at sfo just about an hour ago with san francisco fire chief joanne hayes-white taking the podium first. she said right off the bat that she was so proud of all of the first responders really calling it a joint effort between san francisco fire, police, and crews from san mateo county. we are going to continue to listen in. >> i just
