MALAYSIA PLANE LATEST-PKG


ANOTHER DAY OF INTENSE SEARCHING FOR MALAYSIAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 370 IN THE INDIAN OCEAN COMES TO A CLOSE WITHOUT ANY NEW CLUES ABOUT THE JETLINER'S LOCATION.

U-S AND AUSTRALIAN PLANES SEARCHED FOR HOURS AND SHIPS ARE EN ROUTE TO THE AREA.

A PART OF THE OCEAN SO REMOTE THAT IT TAKES FOUR HOURS JUST TO FLY

THERE FROM AN AIRBASE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA.

SOT Williams, pilot: "We've just landed from our 11-hr mission out to the

search area. It's unfortunate to say that we haven't found anything out

there."

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BIG BREAK -- SATELLITE PICTURES RELEASED BY THE AUSTRALIANS OF DEBRIS POSSIBLY FROM THE PLANE FLOATING IN THE WATER -- ARE NOW 5 DAYS OLD.

THERE ARE CONCERNS THAT WHATEVER MIGHT HAVE BEEN THERE COULD HAVE SUNK OR DRIFTED HUNDREDS OF MILES AWAY

PARTS OF THE OCEAN ARE MORE THAN 2 MILES DEEP, OR 14 EMPIRE STATE BUILDINGS STACKED ONE ON TOP THE OTHER

SOT Hussein: "This is going to be a long haul."

FOR THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF THE 239 PEOPLE ONBOARD, THE WAIT IS

EMOTIONALLY TORTUROUS.

SOT Yin: "With this uncertainty, you are in limbo and every day you go from

hope to despair several times and it is just agonizing."

AND THERE ARE NEW QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY IT TOOK MALAYSIAN OFFICIALS SO LONG TO MOVE THE SEARCH TO THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN. A SATELLITE COMPANY SAYS IT TOLD THOSE AUTHORITIES MORE THAN A WEEK AGO THAT THEIR INITIAL SEARCH WAS IN THE WRONG AREA.

SOT 170640 Haueter: " I just can't understand why this information wasn't

shared with everybody." Return to index of stories...

CHARLA NASH HAS SPENT THE LAST FIVE YEARS FIGHTING FOR HER LIFE.

SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE NO ONE ELSE HAS TO SUFFER THROUGH A SIMILAR TRAGEDY.

CHIMP ATTACK LAWSUIT-PKG


nats/ committee room

FOR FIVE YEARS, CHARLA NASH HAS BEEN STRUGGLING TO FIND ANY HINT OF NORMALCY. IN A LIFE -LITERALLY- RIPPED-APART.

Dispatch: "What is going on? What is the monkey doing? Tell me what the

monkey."

Woman: "He's ripped her face off."

THE FRANTIC 9-1-1 CALL CAME DURING A SAVAGE ATTACK BY A FRIEND'S 200-POUND PET CHIMPANZEE.

NASH LOST HER SIGHT. HANDS. AND MOST OF HER FACE.

"I want to make sure what happened to myself never happens to anyone ever again."

TODAY, SHE MADE A PERSONAL PLEA TO CONNECTICUT LAWMAKERS TO PASS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD REVERSE A DECISION BY A STATE COMMISSIONER THAT PREVENTS HER FROM SUING THE STATE.

"I'm hoping that you can make a decision based on the information that the state knew what was happening and failed to protect me."

HER ATTORNEYS ARE SEEKING 150-MILLION-DOLLARS TO HELP PAY FOR MEDICAL COSTS. SAYING THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION HAD BEEN WARNED BY A STATE BIOLOGIST AND OTHERS, ABOUT HOW DANGEROUS THE CHIMP COULD BE. MONTHS BEFORE THE ATTACK. AND SHOULD HAVE SEIZED THE ANIMAL BECAUSE IT WAS A "THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY."

"I am not here to diminish Ms. Nash's suffering. it has been, and will continue to be, horrific."

BUT CONNECTICUT'S ATTORNEY GENERAL ARGUED. THAT HORROR, IS IN NO WAY, THE FAULT OF THE STATE.

"The law does not support this claim. Nor is it in the public interest to grant it."

TO THIS POINT THERE'S BEEN NO INDICATION OF WHEN OR EVEN IF LAWMAKERS MIGHT VOTE ON THE ISSUE.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARM WEEKEND AHEAD

It was a sun-filled and warm Friday across Southwest Florida, with highs climbing into the mid 80s. Quiet weather is expected this evening, with temps falling into the 70s. Some low clouds and fog may develop overnight, with lows in the mid 60s.

The warm weather continues to start the weekend. More moisture will enter the region, bringing partly cloudy skies. A few isolated rain showers will be possible, but most areas will likely stay dry. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 80s.

The warmth continues into Sunday. We'll see plenty of sun to close the weekend, with highs in the mid 80s.

Some unsettled weather is expected to start the work week. A storm system will move into the area on Monday, bringing clouds and a better chance of scattered showers. The best chance for rain looks to be later in the day with highs in the low 80s.

Mostly cloudy skies will prevail on Tuesday, with scattered showers in the morning time frame. Highs on Tuesday will only be in the low 80s.

Dry weather returns midweek, with highs on Wednesday in the upper 70s.

Another system will likely impact the region to close next week, with more clouds and a few scattered showers.

proof of Hancock's unwillingness to to cooperate, when everyone else

chipped in to get the road paved, he was the only hold even after

neighbors offered to pay for his share." George Solis
