MALAYSIA PLANE CRASH-TRX VO IN PLASMA-SS


NOW TO THE WORST AVIATION DISASTER IN THE WORLD SINCE NINE-ELEVEN.

UKRAINE REBELS CLAIM TO HAVE 'MOST' OF THE DATA RECORDING DEVICES FROM CRASHED MALAYSIA PLANE.

AMATEUR VIDEO APPEARS TO SHOW THE MOMENT FLIGHT 17 WENT DOWN IN UKRAINE AND EXPLODED.

THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT IN KIEV AND THE SEPARATIST REBELS HAVE ACCUSED EACH OTHER OF SHOOTING THE AIRCRAFT DOWN WITH A VERY SOPHISTICATED SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE.

THERE ARE NO REPORTS OF SURVIVORS, THREE INFANTS WERE ON BOARD.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CALLS IT A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAYS THE PLANE WAS APPARENTLY "BLOWN OUT OF THE SKY".

ABOUT 100 PASSENGERS WERE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION STAFFERS HEADING TO AN AIDS CONFERENCE IN AUSTRALIA.

MORE THAN 150 PASSENGERS WERE DUTCH.

NO AMERICAN PASSENGERS HAVE BEEN REPORTED.

REPORTER ANDREW SPENCER HAS MORE ON THE INVESTIGATION INTO WHO FIRED THE MISSILE. Return to index of stories...


MALAYSIA PLANE CRASH-PKG


TODAY, NEARLY THREE-HUNDRED PEOPLE ARE DEAD AFTER A PLANE CRASH IN EASTERN UKRAINE, AND A WOMAN WHO SAYS SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THAT FLIGHT IS STILL ALIVE.

".coming to the airport in the taxi, I was just crying. I'm just thinking I feel like I've been given a second chance."

THE F-A-A NOW WARNS U-S AIRLINES TO AVOID THE AIRSPACE OVER EASTERN UKRAINE. U-S OFFICIALS BELIEVE A MISSILE DESTROYED MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 17.

"If that is the case, it is an unspeakable crime."

"There is clearly a need a full and transparent international investigation."

".we insist that the perpetrators must swiftly be brought to justice."

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN LED A MOMENT OF SILENCE ON RUSSIAN TELEVISION, BUT PROTESTERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED NATIONS BLAMED HIM FOR THE PLANE'S DESTRUCTION WHILE PUTIN BLAMED THE UKRAINIANS FOR ESCALATING THE CONFLICT.

SOME HOPE THE CATASTROPHIC LOSS OF LIFE MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A CEASEFIRE BETWEEN RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS IN EASTERN UKRAINE AND THE COUNTRY'S GOVERNMENT. IF NOT, IT COULD CREATE A DEEPER DIVIDE BETWEEN THE EAST AND THE WEST.

"I think the fact that you've had a civilian plane shot down with hundreds of Dutch, German, French citizens may have the effect of galvanizing the European resolve a bit more than had been the case."

OTHERS REFLECT ON THE TRAGEDY ITSELF AT A GROWING MEMORIAL OUTSIDE THE DUTCH EMBASSY IN UKRAINE.

.298 PEOPLE DEAD AMID THE WRECKAGE OF A CIVILIAN PASSENGER JET.

I'M ANDREW SPENCER, REPORTING Return to index of stories...

NBC-2 HAS A TEAM CLOSELY MONITORING THE WIRES AND NEWS FEEDS COMING FROM VARIOUS AGENCIES THIS MORNING.

COUNT ON US TO KEEP YOU UPDATED THROUGHOUT THE MORNING ON AIR AND ONLINE AT NBC DASH TWO DOT COM. Return to index of stories...


FL GAY MARRIAGE-OC-NATSVO-TRX


NBC-2 IS FOLLOWING UP ON a GAY MARRIAGE ruling HERE IN FLORIDA.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

people cheering

A JUDGE RULED THAT GAY couples CAN MARRY IN MONROE COUNTY, WHICH INCLUDES KEY WEST,a community that is very welcoming to gay couples.

Same sex COUPLES CELEBRATED AFTER A CIRCUIT JUDGE SAID they COULD GET MARRIAGE LICENSES AS EARLY AS TUESDAY IN MONROE COUNTY.

BUT AN IMMEDIATE STATE APPEAL QUICKLY SILENCED THEIR WEDDING BELLS.

NBC-2'S CHRISTY ANDREWS EXPLAINS WHAT'S GOING ON LIVE FROM THE STUDIO. Return to index of stories...


FL GAY MARRIAGE-PLASMA


REPUBLICAN ATTORNEY GENERAL PAM BONDI IS THE REASON.

HER NOTICE OF APPEAL CREATES AN AUTOMATIC STAY THAT PREVENTS ANY SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES FROM BEING ISSUED. Return to index of stories...


FL GAY MARRIAGE-VO-WIPE


THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR ONE LOCAL COUPLE.

ALLEN KAVANAUGH AND DOUG KUBALL ARE CELEBRATING THEIR 25TH ANNIVERSARY ON MONDAY.

THEY WERE PLANNING ON TRAVELING TO MONROE COUNTY TO BE FIRST IN LINE TO GET MARRIED THE VERY NEXT DAY.

THEY CALLED IT THE FIRST STEP IN MAKING THEIR UNION LEGAL IN THE EYES OF THE STATE. Return to index of stories...


FL GAY MARRIAGE-SOTVO


00:06:19 "It's outstanding it was very emotional for us."

BUTT TO

00:09:34 "It's happening, we're excited/00:09:46 finally it was just

tears of joy"

NOW BECAUSE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL PAM BONDI'S APPEAL-- THEY WILL HAVE TO WAIT.

BONDI FILED THE APPEAL LAST NIGHT-- AND SAYS VOTERS MUST BE RESPECTED.

IN 2008-- AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY APPROVED A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO DEFINE MARRIAGE AS ONLY BETWEEN A MAN AND WOMAN.

WE DID SOME CHECKING IN OUR AREA-- AND FOUND THE CLERKS OF COURT IN LEE, COLLIER AND CHARLOTTE COUNTY HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO GRANT MARRIAGE LICENSES FOR SAME SEX COUPLES-- BUT LEGALLY THEY CANNOT.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT PART OF THE LAWSUIT IN MONROE COUNTY-- AND DOING SO COULD RESULT IN MISDEAMEANOR CHARGES. Return to index of stories...


FL GAY MARRIAGE-PLASMA


WE ARE WORKING TO FIND OUT HOW LONG THE AUTOMATIC STAY WILL BE IN EFFECT FOR--

AND HOW THE STATE PLANS TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE APPEAL.

COUNT ON US TO STAY ON TOP OF THIS DEVELOPING STORY.

LIVE IN THE STUDIO CHRISTY ANDREWS NBC2. Return to index of stories...


GAY MARRIAGE BREAKOUT-OC-SS-OC


JUDGES ARE STILL DECIDING WHAT TO DO ABOUT TWO OTHER GAY MARRIAGE CASES IN THE STATE.

THE MOST HIGH PROFILE IS IN MIAMI.

SIX COUPLES ARE SUING THE CLERK OF COURTS FOR THE RIGHT TO GET MARRIED.

THIS CASE WON'T IMMEDIATELY IMPACT OTHER COUNTIES.

BUT ANOTHER LAWSUIT IN TALLAHASSEE WILL HAVE A MORE SWEEPING EFFECT.

IT ARGUES THAT FLORIDA SHOULD RECOGNIZE EQUAL RIGHTS FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES WHO MARRIED LEGALLY OUTSIDE OF THE STATE.

RULINGS ON BOTH THOSE CASES ARE EXPECTED ANY DAY. Return to index of stories...

DOCUMENTS ACCUSE FED-EX OF SHIPPING PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FROM ILLEGAL ONLINE PHARMACIES TO ADDICTS AND TO DRUG DEALERS.

A SPOKESMAN FOR THE COMPANY SAYS FED-EX IS INNOCENT OF ANY WRONGDOING.

THE SPOKESMAN SAYS FED-EX IS WILLING TO ASSIST LAW ENFORCEMENT BUT CAN'T DO THE JOB OF LAW ENFORCEMENT ALONE.

A CONVICTION COULD MEAN MORE THAN 820-MILLION-DOLLARS IN FINES AND PENALTIES AGAINST FED-EX. Return to index of stories...

MICK JAGGER: James Brown, in this movie - - James Brown is a guy that comes from absolutely nothing, from nowhere. He has nothing, but he wants to be someone. And he wants to be a big star. And he's gonna work like crazy to become a big star. And it's about the effects on his personality, when he achieves that goal, what happens to you."
