tv   Good Morning America Weekend Edition  ABC  March 19, 2016 8:00am-9:00am EDT

8:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight, deadly crash. a boeing 737 explodes while attempting to land. the disaster caught on camera. the plane erupting into a fireball. the investigation this morning, was bad weather to blame or perhaps something else? paris fugitive captured. the terror raid takedown. people running for cover as europe's most wanted is hauled away in this dramatic assault in his alleged role in the paris attacks hiding in the same neighborhood police have been searching for months. how did he evade them for so long? hulk hogan's huge courtroom victory. >> just give us something, hulk. >> awarded $115 million. his emotional reaction winning his lawsuit against the website that posted his sex tape. >> this is not only his victory today but also anyone else who's
8:01 am
journalism. >> why did the jury award him even more than he asked for? and brackets busted. march madness living up to its name with this shocking win over michigan state. plus, the slam dunk that wasn't and this half-court buzzer beater. >> jesperson, half-court heave for the win! >> you better believe it's go big or go home. go big or go home hey, good morning on this last day of winter, all right, we've got a little bit of a bad news/good news situation. the bad news is there is a storm making a mess in much of america right now but the good news is rob marciano is back. hey. great to see you. >> this one is not really bad. we'll talk more about that. >> great to have you back. you did a phenomenal job filling in for job while on maternity leave.
8:02 am
>> i'm happy to be back. >> i know we're looking at severe storms then possible snow in the northeast starting tomorrow. rob's is going to have the forecast in a moment. we'll start with the breaking news overnight, a fatal plane crash in russia. the plane coming in at a steep angle and then the fireball. >> tough to watch. it was a boeing 737 operated by a budget airline called flydubai. the plane was traveling from dubai to a city in southern russia. there were 55 passengers, as well as 7 crew members on board. no survivors, emotional scenes at the airport with distraught family members receiving the worst possible news. >> a disaster. for more on what went wrong here, let's bring in abc news aviation consultant colonel steven ganyard. steve, good morning. it appears to have been caused by strong winds, officials say, near hurricane force winds. given what you've seen on the video, does that make sense to you? >> winds in and of themselves
8:03 am
perhaps it was a contributing factor but if you see the video and you see the angle that comes in at i think something else went wrong. perhaps pilot disorientation. >> we know the plane had tried to failland and failed two hours earlier and they went into a holding pattern. why not go to another airport if there were problems in that area? >> perhaps they were told by the weather forecasters that the weather would improve but we've seen the ground track this morning, the radar ground track. if you look at it, it's very circuitous, doesn't make sense, so perhaps the pilot was looking out the window trying to find the airport at night and when you have night and lost horizon it's not hard to get visually disoriented and lose track of which way is up. >> disorientation. a really scary prospect. of course, we all remember the russian airliner brought down by a bomb last october over the sinai peninsula. isis claiming responsibility for that. any signs of terror here that we know of? >> i don't think so. the thing -- one thing that's interesting, where this mishap occurred is very close to
8:04 am
in eastern ukraine, but at this point i think with the weather, night, i think we're going to find something that indicates this was human error as are most mishaps that are caused by commercial aviation. >> and one of the black boxes has already been found. colonel steven ganyard, thank you for your analysis this morning, paula, over to you. >> 62 souls lost. our thoughts go out to their families. our other top story in morning, one of the most terrorists in the world is in custody this morning. a fugitive in the deadly paris attacks was captured in a gun battle in brussels believed to be hiding there for four months right under the nose of law enforcement. he is a big piece to this puzzle in terms of who else could be responsible, and abc's alex marquardt is where it all went down. alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. that four-month manhunt came to an end right here at this house where salah abdeslam had been hiding. you can see the ground floor has been boarded up after the police raid. the police had been scouring this neighborhood and finally found abdeslam just a few hundred yards from his family's
8:05 am
gunshots rang out as heavily armed s.w.a.t. teams moved in. this cell phone video showing residents running for cover. after four months on the run, one of the most wanted men in the world finally cornered on a quiet brussels street, the man in the hooded shirt believe to be salah abdeslam dragged to a waiting police car seeming to limp after being shot in the d to be salah abdeslam dragged to a waiting police car seeming to limp after being shot in the leg. 26-year-old salah abdeslam is the so-called eighth attacker, the only surviving terrorist of november's deadly attacks that left 130 dead. he grew up in belgium, a childhood friend of abdelhamid abaaoud, the mastermind. on the night of november 13th he drove the car carrying the suicide bombers to france's biggest soccer stadium. abdeslam also rented the car that dropped off the isis attackers at the bataclan theater where the american band, the eagles of death metal, was
8:06 am
authorities believe abdeslam planned on carrying out another attack that night but got cold feet and called two friends in belgium to pick him up. when they stopped surveillance cameras snapped this image. the three were stopped near the border but were allow eded to pass into belgium. abdeslam's family claimed they didn't know where he was and urged him to turn himself in. belgian authorities launched a massive manhunt focusing on molenbeek. conducting more than 100 raids and arresting 58 people. meanwhile, abdeslam's friends told abc news he was trying to get to syria, worried that isis supporters in europe were unhappy he didn't detonate his suicide vest that november night but then on tuesday, a break in the case. a raid on this house turned into a shoot-out. one man killed by a police sniper. two others escaping, one of whom may have been abdeslam who reportedly jumped out the back
8:07 am
of weapons and an isis flag. the net tightening, the police zeroing in, and 72 hours later, they had their man. abdeslam was released from the hospital this morning after being treated for that gunshot wound to the leg. he was arrested with four other people including three family members from this house. belgian police will interrogate abdeslam today, but france's president has already called for his extradition as soon as possible. dan. >> a lot of potentially valuable information to come from him perhaps. alex, thank you. we're going to shift gears now and come back to this country and the storm that's creating severe weather down south and could bring snow to the northeast. winter going out like a lion and rob is covering it all. >> good morning, dan. we had big hail across much of the southern plains yesterday as you saw in that video and this morning especially parts of southeast texas could see some then it shifts more towards the florida panhandle. this piece of energy is what's going to kind of bring a little bit of of a snow scare to the northeast, so let's go through that. here's the low and we'll time it out.
8:08 am
snow to develop across d.c. and especially across some of the higher terrain in the appalachians off towards the west and then overnight tonight into -- or overnight sunday into monday morning, looking at snows from eastern parts of cape cod, boston will be more of a mess there. not going to see a foot plus. that's the good news, it is the first day of spring but 2 to 4 inches across eastern parts of new england. likely less than 2 inches if just some snow flurries maybe on a lucky way here from new york back through baltimore. so not as bad but it'll be the first day of spring so certainly significant. paula. >> rob, it's so great to have you back. let's move to something maybe a little less predictable than the weather, politics. next to the red hot republican race for the white house, donald trump continues to lead the pack with a big target on his back, not only from within his own party but angry left wing protesters who were out in force last night in utah. abc's amy bruce is on the political beat once again for us this morning. hi, mary. >> reporter: hi, paula.
8:09 am
and arizona just around the corner, this morning donald trump is under attack from all sides, republicans, democrats, even international hackers, all trying to stop him. >> i think we get to the convention, it's over. i don't think there is going to be much of a dispute. >> reporter: this morning as donald trump tightens his grip on the nomination, the republican establishment is making a last-ditch attempt to take him down. >> there are only two candidates that have any plausible path to winning the republican nomination, either donald trump or me. >> reporter: ted cruz, who spent friday touring the arizona/mexico border, is racking up support from republicans who see him as their best hope to block trump, and now mitt romney says he will vote for cruz in utah's primary next week saying he's the only one who can deny trump the delegates to win the nomination forcing a contested convention. trump fired back on twitter saying "mitt romney is a mixed up man who doesn't have a clue. no wonder he lost." overnight in utah he went a step further questioning romney's
8:10 am
are we sure? he choked. he choked. it was so sad. >> reporter: this as trump comes under attack from a barrage of takedown ads. $63 million and counting now spent on ad are ads like this. >> trump, the worst kind of politician. >> reporter: and now with just three days until those next big contests, the candidates are busy all weekend campaigning in utah and arizona as they prepare for a long slog to the convention. dan. >> another busy stretch ahead. mary bruce, thank you. now to the young man at the center of a headline making a prep school rape trial, he is waking up behind bars this morning. owen labrie, he had been free on bail while appealing his conviction for a misdemeanor sexual assault, but now a judge has revoked his bail after labrie violated his curfew. he was whisked away in cuffs, and abc's gio benitez was right there in the courtroom. >> reporter: a young man at the center of a high-profile prep school rape trial sent to jail. a judge ruling owen labrie violated his curfew while out on
8:11 am
last fall -- >> guilty. >> reporter: -- he was convicted of misdemeanor sex assault on an underage schoolmate at the prestigious st. paul school. his accuser testifying at trial. >> i was raped. >> reporter: he was also found guilty of luring a child by computer, but he had been acquitted of the most serious felony rape charges, but when out on bail awaiting appeal, a reporter from "vice" spoke to him on a train in boston tweeting "he is in town visiting his girlfriend." the defense says he was on his way to a class lecture. prosecutors investigating and finding labrie traveled outside of curfew hours. >> your honor, he lied to the jury. he lied to your honor. >> reporter: labrie's attorney apologizing to the court. >> he chose wrongly, your honor. and he's sorry. >> reporter: but that wasn't enough for the judge. >> i have to find that it is unlikely -- that you are unlikely to abide by any
8:12 am
>> reporter: and labrie has now officially started serving his year-long sentence. but even if he wins his appeal, chances are, he would have already served that time. paula. >> all right, gio, thank you. and for the first time, we are hearing from the baseball player who abruptly retired when his team changed the policy on just how much time his young son could spend in the clubhouse. adam laroche's move shocked chicago white sox fans and the nation for that matter and re-opened the conversation on that tricky life/work balance. laroche's teammates also weighing in this morning, and abc's eva pilgrim has more. >> that ball hit high and deep. looks up. you can put it on the board. >> reporter: adam laroche is walking away from what was likely the final year of his career and the $13 million left on his contract, retiring early after white sox vp ken williams told him he couldn't bring his 14-year-old son to the clubhouse anymore.
8:13 am
to make some un popularpopular decisions in order to have an answer for the next person that comes along. >> we're missing two big pieces to our puzzle. >> reporter: laroche breaking his silence tweeting that prior to signing with the white sox he worked out a deal that his son drake could be a part of the clubhouse, but saying, this season i was told not to bring him to the ballpark at all. i had to make a decision, do i choose my teammates and my career or my family. the decision was easy. many of his teammates furious after a heated team meeting. >> drake's honestly one of the best kids i've ever met. >> i would probably say that the entire clubhouse is with adam. >> we're missing one of our troops and we can't get him back really. he's done. >> reporter: left-handed ace chris sale saying they were told three different stories why the team was not allowed even going as far as questioning the vp's version of events. >> we were bold-faced lied to by someone we're supposed to be able to trust. >> reporter: this controversy surrounding laroche's retirement undoubtedly tearing the white sox clubhouse apart with just a few weeks to go until opening
8:14 am
the owner of the white sox is waiting to comment on the situation saying right now he's try to get to the bottom of exactly what happened talking to players, staff and the front office but this sparking a lot of controversy and a lot of talk about how much time you should spend with your kid. >> i spent six years in that clubhouse. it's a very family friendly clubhouse. i find it hard to imagine that some of the teammates didn't have a problem with it because that is a sanctuary where chemistry is built. it's tough to have a teenager in there every day. >> publicly a different story, sounds like. thank you, eva. >> let's check the other headlines with ryan smith in for ron. great to have you here. >> thank you so much, guys. good morning and good morning to you, as well. we begin with breaking news. newly released video out of iraq of british captive john cantlie one year after we last saw him. isis releasing the video of the war photographer mocking air strikes there. cantile was taken hostage in 2012. the space station got a few
