7:03 am
death with dignity movement to end her own life. tamron hall has the latest. good morning to you. >> good morning everyone. brittany maynard made the decision after being diagnosed with brain cancer. she went through with her promise, dying peacefully surrounded by loved ones. brittany maynard made her final facebook post saturday writing, good bye to my dear friends and family that i love. today is the day i have chosen to pass away in the face of my terminal illness. this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me but would have taken so much more. the story of the 29-year-old diagnosed with terminal brain cancer made headlines when she moved to oregon to take advantage of that state's death with dignity act. a video explaining her decision to end her life on november 1 went viral with nearly 10 million views on youtube. >> i don't have to die the way that it's been described to me that my brain tumor would take me.
7:04 am
>> last week a new video, eluding to a possible delay. >> if november 2 comes along and i'm still alive i know we'll be moving forward as a family like out of love for each other and that the decision will come later. >> overnight a statement from an end of life organization associated with maynard read in part, she chose to abbreviate the dying process by taking the aid in dying medication she received months ago. she died as she intended, peacefully in the arms of her loved ones. there were heart felt tweets about her passing. her story compassion and fight will never leave me. she modeled the bravery of facing death with dignity. she, not cancer had the last word. she thanks family and close friends she called her ring of support before ending with a final message. good-bye world. spread good energy. pay it forward. her official owe bitary released

7:06 am
i didn't think it would be out this early. >> reporter: me neither. you know, you left it was warm, you come back and it feels like the heart of winter. i know you were not gone that long. but it's not just me. even hardy new englanders say this snowstorm hit way too early and they are right. we have 14 1/2 inches of snow on the ground here in bangor, maine. that's typically what you see around christmas, not right after halloween. power crews were out trying to restore power to the more than 100,000 people that lost it. and it's not just the show but the cold stretches all the way down south. judging by this it's hard to believe that winter is still more than six weeks away. in bangor, maine this morning they are waking up to more than a foot of snow. mid fall and already heavy snow and 50-mile-per-hour wind gusts are making highways look downright wintry. snow dusting pumpkins and covering foliage, days after
7:07 am
halloween. >> it's funny, yesterday you can see i was out cleaning my leaves up out of -- putting away garden beds. what a difference a day makes. >> in foxborough, massachusetts white weather could keep patriots fans down. >> this is football weather. >> more than 50,000 runners bundled up for the new york city marathon with low temperatures and wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour. making an already brutal 26.2 miles even more difficult. even for the professionals. >> very strong run. >> i feel like i fought the whole way. it's tough conditions. >> even the south couldn't escape early snow. cold temperatures from georgia to the carolinas. skiers reveling in the second earliest opening on record at north carolina's sugar mountain ski resort. >> great. they are great. just getting them warmed up for the rest of the season. >> so cold records were set in florida, yes, florida where cold
7:08 am
air brought new lows to miami, daytona beach and orlando. so of course november wasn't off to a great start this weekend but the good news is we should already start to turn the corner, by this afternoon temperatures at least should rebound across the south and into the mid-atlantic. >> that's right. get back to normal. thank you so much. warm up. now we're also watching a major system coming out from the south. this is going to be a big impact for a wide swath for election day. from del rio, texas, dallas, on into houston and into oklahoma. we're talking some areas picking up 3 to 5 inches of rain and that's going to be spreading to the north. we've got another major system coming onshore into the pacific northwest. and that area is going to be looking over 48 hours from 3 to 6 inches of rain. that moisture down south, that's going to be making its way here into the northeast, and we may be looking at another storm system coming up this weekend.
7:09 am
>> yeah. >> happy dance. >> all right, al. thank you. in the meantime, we're learning more this morning about what may have led to the tragic crash of a virgin galactic space plane during a test flight. in a moment we'll talk to the company's founder sir richard branson. first, nbc's jacob ras cone has the latest on the investigation. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the ntsb wants to be clear these new facts don't yet tell us the official cause of the crash, that will take months and longer. but we now know video and flight data in and outside the cockpit appear to show mistakes by both man and machine. the unexpected announcement came overnight. a break in the investigation into virgin galactic's failed test flight that killed one pilot and injured another. the ntsb's acting chairman saying the tails or feathers of the space plane which are only supposed to deploy as the aircraft kree enters the atmosphere, deployed before the plane got into space.
7:10 am
the ntsb saying video from inside the cockpit shows the copilot michael alsbury who died in the crash unlocked the feathers seconds after the plane's rocket ignited which is too soon. but the feathers don't deploy simply because they are unlocked. that requires a second lever. video and flight data confirm nobody pulled that lever. the feathers deployed on their own. seconds later the aircraft came apart. >> we are a long way from finding cause, we still have months and months of investigation to do, a lot that we don't know. >> it broke apart at 45,000 feet and this is the biggest piece of what is left. what would have carried six space tourists and two pilots into suborbit. more than 700 people have already bought tickets for a future space flight including justin bieber, katy perry and leonardo dicaprio. the travel community is mourning
7:11 am
the loss of alsbury. >> he was a friend and colleague colleague. to all of us. never gets replaced. >> reporter: and the recovering pilot is recovering after surgery, he is well enough to talk to doctors but not yet to investigators. we expect that he may prove to be an integral part of understanding, matt, what actually happened on board that flight. >> all right, jacob, thank you very much. sir richard branson the founder of virgin galactic. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i know it's early and the ntsb is saying it's going to take a long time to have concrete answers bse preliminary ideas that the copilot on this flight may have started the process of the tails or those feathers at the wrong
7:12 am
time, have you seen that video, can you confirm that? >> i haven't seen the video myself. the ntsb or leading the investigation, and we don't buy exactly what they tell us. but if the deployment did take place early, obviously they are indicating that may well -- that may well be the cause. but we need them to examine that further and let us know. >> i know you're taking a wait-and-see approach, sir richard, but people are already wondering whether this accident and the death of this copilot is a crippling blow. there have been delays, setbacks in the past with this program. can virgin galactic survive the image seen around the world of that space vehicle coming apart
7:13 am
at 45,000 feet? >> i think that if we can find what the ntsb pointing to, if that ends up to be the case, that is something which is easy to fix. and we can make absolutely certain that it cannot be done again in the future. so i think you know, we have a wonderful spacecraft, spaceship, wonderful engineers trying to make history and -- they are not going to 0 -- they are going to move forward and create a spaceship company that will be hopefully one day the marvel of the world. yes, it's been a horrible setback, particularly obviously for michael's family. and for mike himself. but we owe to the him to continue and that we will do.
7:14 am
>> even as you say we owe to the him, i'm thinking back to the early days of the nasa programs going into space and it seemed at that time though they had tragic loss of life as well, that was about the advancement of science, it was about that giant leap for mankind and rightly or wrongly, people don't see your program in the same light. they think it's more of an expensive thrill ride. so is it worth the risks? >> absolutely it's worth the risks. our program is about many different things. first of all, it's about giving the millions of people who would like to go to space the chance to go to space. secondly, it's about putting up massive arrays of satellites to enable the 3 billion people who don't have mobile phone or internet access or wi-fi access to get them. third, it's about with point-to-point travel in the future in an environmentally friendly way in a fraction of
7:15 am
the time it takes today. i can carry on. so, it's a grand program which has had a horrible seat back, but i don't think anybody watching this would want us to abandon it at this stage. >> sir richard branson, i appreciate your time. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. thanks, matt. >> natalie, troubling news out of iraq. >> it's called the worst blood shed in iraq in more than four months. america's allies against isis rounded up and massacred a sunni tribal leader from the city, said his men were overrun by isis. witnesses claim the islamic militants shot 200 men at close range and dozens of women and children. television reporting that air strikes in response to the killing. world trade center is open for business. 13 years after the 9/11 terror attacks publishing giant conde

in a minute. first, natalie, you had one of the best seats in the house. >> i did. it was cold but incredible. nik proved once again why he is the king of the high wire. this time high above downtown chicago. conquering gusty winds at times and, of course, that cold, incline and then the blindfolded portion, once again making history on live tv. >> all right, chitown, let's do this, baby! >> sunday night, nick wallenda didn't just walk a tightrope, he joined the chicago sky line to defy death and gravity 50 stories up on a wire the width of a penny. nik was walking the distance of two city blocks and up eight stories with 65,000 people gathered below, holding their breath. the dare devil taking in the scenery. >> what's the view like? >> it's unbelievable. absolutely stunning.
7:34 am
>> and while a sometimes shaky wire didn't quite let him do everything he wanted. >> unfortunately i planned on doing a selfie right about here but i don't like this movement so i don't think i'm going to. >> under seven minutes later, he was on solid ground, kissing family and, yes, taking selfies. followed by a few quick elevator rides before his second walk of the night. >> are we good? >> this one, blindfolded. >> looking good. >> with no vision to help him, nik relied on a pinging beacon and his father's coaching. >> two steps. another step. >> during a breathless 80 seconds where he became king of the windy city sky line. >> one more step. >> putting him back in the world record books yet again. >> stay calm and focus on that next step. there is no time for fear to enter your mind. >> he made it all look so easy. of course, he said this was perhaps his most difficult
7:35 am
challenge yet, to date. >> i was going to say, difficult to watch. i can't imagine how you felt. let's say hello to the man himself, nik wallenda. good morning to you. how are you feeling? >> i'm feeling great, so blessed to be in this amazing city. i have to thank mayor rahm emanual and the entire city for backing me. 65,000 fans joined me on the street here. what an amazing honor it was. >> what strikes me in watching these things, nik, you walk across that wire like you're walking to the bus stop or to the starbucks. you are so calm, cool and collected. was there never really a moment that you felt a little fear, that your heart rate went up a little bit? >> you know, there's no time for fear. i have to stay focused on what i'm doing. if let fear enter into my body that's when an accident can happen. i try to remain very positive and very focused and train properly. it's really about training and preparation, knowing i would be successful making this walk. i never would have taken that first step if i wasn't fully confident. >> that said, you were going to do a selfie at one point but
7:36 am
decided not to. is that because conditions weren't sufficient to do that? >> there were a couple of big gusts of winds that hit me in the face and stood me upright. i was leaning into it. and i thought maybe i shouldn't do this. three-quarters of the way up, jim cantore warned me i was going to face more fierce winds coming off that building. to be honest, in the excitement or anxiousness, i wanted to get up there because i wanted to see how bad it was going to be. and at the end i thought i did that really quick. i should have stopped. but all's well that end's well. glad to be on solid ground. >> the next walk you did, of course, blindfolded. what's that like to have that sense taken from you? how important is your vision in doing what you do? how many adjustments did you have to make? >> up until recently i thought it was impossible to walk a wire without vision. my parents always told me to focus on the other end, that's the solid rock, and focus on that. you'll make it across to the other side.
7:37 am
to take that important element out was extremely challenging and wire walking was definitely second nature to me. seven generations, it's in my blood. but definitely challenging mentally. it's very, very draining. there was no time to think about it. i knew i had to get over that wire. basically i told myself i'm going to torture you mentally for 2 1/2 minutes but i know you're going to make it safely to the other side because you're prepared. i jumped on that cable and here i am this morning. >> you make it look so easy. i know you're planning your next big stunt. feel free to let us in on what it is. do you feel in your heart you will know when enough is enough or do you feel that pressure to always be topping yourself? >> no, i really do feel like i'll know when enough is enough. it may be soon. my great grandfather did lose his life and it had to do with his physical ability. it wasn't his age but he couldn't hold on. i have been trained to hold on to that wire.
7:38 am
knowing that that wire is there. if there's ever too much or anything i'll go down and hold on and wait for my guys. i do think there will be a time. when you think it's time, i told my family, let me know and i'll give it up. >> your encore performance, have you planned it? >> i'm working on re-creating my great grandfather's greatest walk in georgia, he did two head stands on the wire. i've never done a head stand on the wire in public. i'm training for that. i want to re-create that walk. i want to walk the wire with my great grandfather. >> nik wallenda, thank you so much. some of us can't do a head stand anywhere. >> i speak for the room, i think. i don't want to see him do a head stand. it's too nerve racking. >> can't he take up other hobbies? maybe fantasy golf? >> take up knitting, nik. >> exactly. amazing to watch. let's get a check of the weather from al. >> announcer: "today's" weather is brought to you by mass mutual, a company owned by its policy holders.

7:43 am
for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. i love the bacon on this sub. i love bacon so much i'm launching a line of bacon jewelry.

10:22 am
because ethical and moral obligation to pay is completely different from a legal one. you can think in your own subjective mind i'll give them this money to help them out and they'll give it back to me when they get back on their feet. but that is not necessarily a loan. you got to get things in writing. verbal agreements can be enforceable in court sometimes, but you got to get something in writing, some type of direct or circumstantial evidence always helps. i mean look the legal lesson is get things in writing. the life lesson is you know who your friends are now. >> yeah but really tough if it is a family member. hello. usually it is the other way around. >> ten years ago, i had a credit card issued to my twin sister in her name on my account. the debt is now $5,400. she's only paid the minimum. three years ago she stopped talking to me and is now refusing to pay at all. do you have -- do i have any recourse here? the whole situation is devastating? >> how many times in my courtroom do i haerks iear, i let

eighth grade are starting to experiment. i know it's awful to think about. but we want them to be educated. if we start these conversations early so they're open and comfortable with us as parents they'll come back and talk to you and say this is happening, this person is doing that i don't want to do that and start to do "what if" questions. what if all your friends are hooking up and you don't want to, what does that mean? >> if you don't know how to have the conversation, you say a book is a good idea a guide. >> yes. there are so many good ones out there and reputable resources online you can use, too. they've already figured out words to use and what's age appropriate. it americans with disabilities act it moore comfortable for you as a parent and easier for the kids to understand. >> i'm depressed. >> i am too. >> tomorrow how to talk to your kids about drugs and alcohol. >> she's been named mtv's artist to watch. >> break-out singing sensation meg hand treanor performs her
