it started with a miscommunication and led to a melt down that created chaos on
5:30 pm
the green line last month. part of an investigation by metro into what happened out there. thousands of passengers became stranded on trains between the navy yard and an tec ostia. >> the first failure was because of a miscommunication. but the entire situation got worse when a passenger on one of the trains deep in the tunnel decided to lead people out against orders. two green line trains stuck in rush hour with about 1,000 passengers each after the power suddenly cut off. january 30th incident created panic and confusion. people uncertain how long they'd be stranded. >> the customers were alarmed. some were frightened. all inconvenienced and very uncomfortable. >> a lapse in protocol led to miscommunication between officers that led the initial power shut down.
5:31 pm
>> we would not have been there if the protocols had been followed. >> the transit agency said the train operator failed to make adequate announcements some passengers on the second train began self evacuating too. nigel told fox 5 he led riders in to the tunnel and out. >> really wasn't thinking about danger. thinking about trying to get in a better situation than we were in. my big thing was how long are we going to be down there? >> metro says the train operator told the man to stay on the train but he refused leading to a more dangerous life threatening situation. some confused passengers thought they were being led by a metro employee, not a passenger. board chairman believes metro needs to do everything it can to
5:32 pm
make sure people know the deadly consequences. >> they are risking their life existing a train without any direction or supervision or protection. >> the incident started with an arching insulate or on the track. the passengers in the tunnel caused the delay to stretch more than two hours. >> one of the few good things that came out of this is no one was injured and no one lost their life. >> metro says no one has disciplined for the lapses. plans to improve training and drills for situations just like this. most concerning to a lot of the board members was that self evacuation. why people would exit a metro train. but you don't see people doing it from an airplane stuck on the tarmac.
5:33 pm
>> bottom line is stay put. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> american airlines and u.s. airways are merging to create the world's largest airline. once the $11 billion deal is finalized, the airline will be called american airlines. offer more than 6700 daily flights to more than 300 destinations in 56 countries. >> the over 900 routes when we fly them individually, only 12 of them where we have overlaps. this is about taking two airlines and putting them together and providing better service. and also i would note it creates a nice third competitor. so our view is it increases competition, it doesn't decrease competition. >> the company will likely continue operating for the next few years. thanks so much for being here. >> my pleasure. thank you for having me. >> more flights. more destinations. seems
5:34 pm
like good news for consumers. what's your take when you heard about this? >> i think as we've seen in the past, nothing goes as smoothly as you hoped it does. we hope they've learned from the experiences and mistakes in the past. i believe in the long run this will be a great benefit. >> i know a lot of people right now are tweeting if this will mean lower airfares for them. based on your history with the airline, do you think it could mean that? >> well, i think that might be a little short sided. here you have two carriers. one of them in bankruptcy. it's a turbulent time. has been for the airlines. i think what you'll find is that had this not gone through, the potential for one or both in the long run, perhaps even in the short run that one or both may not have been here had to have gone out of business. i think the fact
5:35 pm
they've merged, they'll become stronger. in the long run will have more opportunity and more choices available to the traveling public. >> as we've seen with other mergers, employees often lose their jobs due to the overlap of positions. what are you hearing? is there a concern that could happen? >> i'm sorry, i couldn't hear that question. >> in past in other mergers we've seen employees for the airlines lose their jobs because of an overlap of positions, what are you hearing? what's the talk? is there a concern or fear for both airlines they could be out of a job because of this? >> certainly, that's a legitimate concern. and i am sadly have the same fears. i would believe that in some ways there will be overlap and opportunities for as many employees just won't exist. there will be perhaps down the road as the companies expand,
5:36 pm
greater opportunities but in the short-term, may be loss of jobs. >> thanks so much for coming in tonight. >> thank you. >> still ahead, one of dc's most popular landmarks is opening up another location. where they plan to set up shop next. >> hopefully my neighborhood. a fredericksburg couple comes forward to claim the second largest jackpot in virginia history. lucky dogs. >> we have very big numbers on gold. try this. a grand total of 4405 tons were sold in 2012. the gold business was worth well over $2 trillion last year. now break it down. governments bought 500 tons. individuals bought the other 3900 tons. that sounds like a lot of gold coins for the grand kids and it is. for the volume of sales was
5:37 pm
the lowest in three years. when the price was going up we bought. but when prices leveled off we bought less. maybe that's why gold has been stuck recently. by the way, who buys the most gold? the people of india. we'll see you tomorrow on the fox business network.

5:49 pm
suburbs already down in the 30s. a little cool. the wind is not going to be a problem. really not a bad february evening all things considered. we've got clear skies here. sunny skies all day long. and up to the north of us you can see the snow. that's going to stay up there. that's a clipper moving through. this clipper stays to the north. we don't have to worry about that. and we have nothing but fair skies pretty much all night long. we're going to start to see clouds increasing by early tomorrow morning and then through the day tomorrow it looks like we're going to have clouds start moving on in. don't expect much sunshine by tomorrow by any means. this is future cast tomorrow morning. we start off with some sunshine. we'll have some clouds mixing in as well. as we progressed through the day, more clouds will come on across. more clouds will thicken up. 3, 4, 5:00, most of us will be cloudy. we're still dry though. future cast is showing just a little bit.
5:50 pm
there's a chance, a slight chance of some showers tomorrow evening. it does not look like a great chance. earlier this week we talked about a potential for a coastal storm. the models have wiped it off the map. well, it started coming back a little bit earlier today. and this is where the models are departing radically on what may be happening friday night and into saturday. we take you on future cast and show you. this is on saturday. you can see snow real close to i 95. right now future cast is keeping this all to the east of us. and i might add that future cast has done a great job with the last little snow events we've had coming through. there's no reason to believe this isn't going to happen. but looking collectively at all our model guidance. some of it is still suggesting a pretty good likelihood we'll have rain and snow too throughout the area on saturday.
5:51 pm
we have to keep that in the forecast. but opt miss stickily future cast is keeping most of that east of i 95. only a few clouds tonight. around 32 in the suburbs. 37 in town. not that bad for a february overnight. cool start with some sunshine. mostly clouds at noon. clouds for just about everybody by 4:00 p.m. we stay dry tomorrow and just about completely dry tomorrow evening. however, there will be a slight chance for showers. more showers coming in friday night. there will be a few snow showers as well. and then as we get into saturday, we're going to keep rain and snow in the forecast. but, again, that can change. it's a little moving target right now. one thing is for sure, sunday looks cold. sunday looks blustery. 37 for a high but feel like it's in the 20s all day long. all that being said, enjoy middle 50s for highs tomorrow. >> thank you, gary. >> the talk of the town on tmz, the man who once inspired
