(catherine) a group of women is leveling explosive accusations... claiming they were sexually harrassed and assaulted on commercial airline flights. (grant)c-n-n tracked down several female passengers who say airlines did little to stop alleged misconduct in the skies.rene marsh has the story: -nat cellphone video-a man arrested last week accused of fondling two female passengers on board a united airlines flight from newark to buffalo, new york. katie campos was one of them. katie campos/united airlines passenger: "he grabbed like my upper thigh, like in the crotch area, and he grabbed it pretty forcefully."a police report says the man told the other woman he "would like to kiss her." when she declined, he
started stroking her leg. the man now charged with disorderly conduct.united airlines told cnn "we have zero tolerance for this type of behavior and our pilot requested that local law enforcement meet the aircraft on arrival."not enough for campos who tweeted... do better united airlines.... she says the flight attendant did not offer her to switch seats. she had to demand it.she was then placed directly behind the harasser ... the airline says because there were few empty seats.the touching continued.katie campos/united airlines passenger: "at the end of the day, they didn't protect my safety."like campos, these three women tell cnn they were sexually harassed or assaulted on commercial flights.and all of them complain the flight crew did little or nothing to help. ayanna hart/delta passenger: "he grabbed my arm and my side, right under my left breast, right next to my left breast."ayanna hart was on a delta flight from los angeles to denver in may. she says the flight attendant was of no help.ayanna hart/delta passenger: "the flight attendant said, 'oh, don't worry about him. he flies with us all the time. he's delta platinum.'" hart has a pending lawsuit against delta for failing to intervene and continuing to serve him alcohol. the airline wouldn't comment on this case citing " pending litigation," but said it takes these incidents "seriously" and "with law enforcement, investigates them."allison dvaladze/delta
passenger: "i was dozing off when i felt a hand in my crotch, and realized that the man next to me was holding, was grabbing my crotch." allison dvaladze filed a complaint with delta after her flight from seattle to amsterdam. allison dvaladze/delta passenger: "there was not a clear procedure for what they should do. they asked me what i wanted them to do."a month later, she received an email saying " it's not fair when one person's behavior affects another" and as a "goodwill gesture" offered her ten-thousand miles.allison dvaladze/delta passenger: "if somebody reports a crime to an airline it should be flagged, it should not be treated as if its lost luggage."delta told cnn "we continue to be disheartened by the events ms. dvaladze's described."jennifer rafieyan/united passenger: "he started to um...touch my leg, stroke my leg, tickle it." jennifer rafieyan was on a flight from newark to phoenix. she too says the flight crew didn't move her away from her harasser. instead the airline made an offerjennifer rafieyan/united passenger: "he gave me four one-hundred dollar gift certificates for travel on an upcoming united flight and he refused to let me talk to a manager." but shortly after a news article about her ordeal was published, united management called to-in their words-- "check on her." -nats united airlines call-sara nelson/association of flight attendants: "at thousands of feet in the air, you cant call for help, you can't remove the problem."sara nelson, is president of one of the
world's largest flight attendant unions. sara nelson/association of flight attendants: "in my 22 years as a flight attendant, i have never taken part in a conversation in training or otherwise about how to handle sexual harassment or sexual assault."the union surveyed nearly two thousand flight attendants. one out of five said they received a report of a passenger sexual assault.but law enforcement was contacted less than half of the time.cnn reached out to all the major u-s airlines and the industry trade group that represents them. none agreed to go on camera ... but all released statements with a similar message.passengers safety and security is their priority and--they say-- flight attendants are trained to handle these incidents but none gave a detailed explanation of the policies or guidelines.no federal regulatory agency tracks how many mid-air sexual assaults happen nationwide. but the fbi does track how many it investigates. federal data shows a 66-percent increase from 2014 to 2017. the fbi says its unclear what's behind the rise.but what is clear for these women: flight crews need to do more, because at 30,000 feet there's no escape (catherine) c-n-n searched federal court records to find the women interviewed in this report. but says that there were many other passengers with similar complaints and theairlines

from career-ending revelations to chaos at the oscars.(catherine) it was quite a year in the entertainment world. david daniel takes a look back at 20-17 in hollywood. barry jenkins: "i noticed the commotion that was happening, and i thought something strange had occurred..." strange indeed! february's academy awards ended with the biggest blunder in 89 years of oscars history, as warren beatty and faye dunaway got the wrong envelope, and mistakenly announced "la la land" as the best picture winner... before belatedly crowning the real winner, "moonlight."barry jenkins: "i've watched the academy awards -- i've never see that happen before.""come into the light!" (nat)women stepped into the spotlight in 20-17, on-screen and off. the two domestic top-grossing movies of the year, "beauty and the beast" and "wonder woman," both featured female protagonists... as does the only film that might top them, "star wars: the last jedi." ashley judd: "you may be afraid of the truth. i am unafraid to be honest." women shook the world as ashley judd, rose mcgowan and other actresses accused movie mogul harvey weinstein of decades of sexual harassment and assault. and the stories kept coming, toppling such entertainment icons as brett ratner, kevin spacey, and louis c-k.sarah beardall: "we heard the blast
and didn't know what it was, but straight away she said 'is it terrorists? are they coming to get us?'"terror struck the entertainment world in 20-17: a bombing after an ariana grande concert in manchester, england, killed 22 people, including an eight-year-old girl, and injured more than 60 in may. then in october, a gunman in las vegas fired for 10 minutes at a crowd of 22-thousand attending the route 91 harvest country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500. (singing) "she was an american girl..."the music world was also shocked by the deaths of several stars. rock and roll hall of famer tom petty died in october at age 66... and two rock frontmen died by suicide: chris cornell of soundgarden, in may, and linkin park lead singer chester bennington, in july. but good news arrived in pairs as well. george and amal clooney became parents to twins, a girl and a boy, on june sixth... and a week later, so did beyonce and jay-z, who broke instagram records with a photo of the twins -- a welcome bright spot in a year
filled with so much turbulence, even in entertainment. in hollywood, i'm david daniel. it's remarkable what can change over the span of an nfl season. after starting the year 0-and-9, the 49ers have a chance to end the season on a 5-game winning streak. jimmy garoppolo and the niners back to work today in santa clara. they carved up the jaguars on sunday, and they can take out another division champion sunday when they face the rams. l-a...just won
the nfc west over the weekend, so they will be sitting their stars-- including jared goff, todd gurley, and aaron donald. kyle shanahan..is not too bummed out though because he expects many high-stakes showdowns with the rams in the near future. "the hard rivals end up being usually who the better teams in the division are. i hope that we're up there as we get going. i know the rams are there this year, so we're excited to get to play them. again, i wish they had all their guys going, we'll see what happens, but hopefully that can build as we get going, that we'll both be up there each year"."you try to every week say that you're facing a faceless opponent. no matter who it is you want to have the same mindset. no matter what type of game it is, first game of the season, last game of the season. i think we've done that pretty well the last couple of weeks, just coming in, preparing every day, practicing hard, going through the little critiques of certain plays and i think if we keep going that we'll be good on sunday." turning now to the raiders-- since the playoffs are out of the question, they can score a victory by ruining the
postseason hopes for a division rival. the chargers seal a wildcard spot with a win áand a titans loss. and there's a chance they'll miss one of their stars since running back melvin gordon is questionable with a high ankle sprain. the silver and black...relish a chance to spoil the year for the bolts, but if they are going to do so, that offense can't turn in the performance we saw against the eagles. raiders, turned it over 5-times in the 2nd half. through it all, jack del rio...sticking by his offensive cooridinator todd downing. "i do know the guy is super bright. he's going to be a really good coach in this league. i believe in him. those are not things that people want to hear right now because the reality is we've underperformed offensively this year... but it doesn't change my belief. it's what i know. there have been some, a tough set of circumstances and things have not gone real smooth. not what we're looking for". "we're not consistent enough
all year, especially in the details of our assignments. that's one area that has to and will be cleaned up... but i don't think any expectation is ever too far out there for any team in the nfl. you see a team that's in first place and all those things that we just played on monday night and we're right there". the warriors in action tonight, hosting the jazz. here's a quick update from oracle-- at the break -- warriors up 48-47 draymond green hit a three in the final seconds... to put golden state in the lead we'll have full highlights on kron4 news at 10. before we move on, there's still an issue to sort out from that cavs game. and it's all about the call and ánon-calls announced in the last two minute report. two days removed from the game, players from both teams aren't upset about the fouls, their point of contention is with the reports themselves. first issued in 2015, the
league started these reports as a way to provide more transparency in the officiating. áhowever, players don't see the use in having them because the results don't change..and it only shows how the refs made mistakes. draymond green...calls the reports ápointless. "it makes no sense like lebron can't go back and get the play over again and get the free throws. so who does it help? that's not transparency, if anything its putting an official on the spot that missed the call, but you're not going to put him on the spot in the third quarter. so why act like your blaming the game on him". and finally, we have our winner for the most entertaining college football coach of the year. washington state's mike leach. this is a man that really does his own thing. look at him áfuriously trying to cool off his cup of coffee...in the middle of the holiday bowl press conference where his cougars are playing michigan state. --that wasn't all of it, when leach went to the mic, the conference went off in a weird tangent and he started talking about his childhood pet
racoon. yeah i did have a pet raccon, i would like to tough if you travel, they are kind of more low maintance than you might think. they do like have shinny objects, yeah i would like to have a pet raccon again, but bouncing around the country makes it tough". makes it tough".

(catherine) a family in hawaii got a life changing surprise...just in time for the holidays.(grant) a man searching for his father...ended up finding out that his best friend of 60 years... was actually his brother. alan robinson and walter macfarlane... shared a special bond throughout their friendship. walter never
knew his father, was adopted. walter decided to search for his dad..through social media. after having no luck...he turned to ancestory dot com. walter didn't find his father...but discovered he had a biological brother...named alan robinson. (sot) "it was a shock -- definitely a shock, but then when you thought about it, compared forearms and everything." it turns out alan had also used ancestry dot com... to find answers about his family. after a few phone calls back and forth, the men learned they shared the same birth mother. the blood brothers now plan to travel and enjoy retirement together.
