ocean revealed itself today as you can see behind me when crews tried to recover a sailboat that had washed up on the beach a few days ago. surf battered salvage workers. those lines link the sailboat to a tugboat several hundreds yards off pacific state beach. today's recovery plan called for pulling it back out to deeper water. everything appeared to be going well for a few seconds until one side of the sailboat dipped below the waterline and as you can see it began to capsize. one of the recovery team members even climbed on top of the boat's cabin, there he goes, and he tried to stay safe and the tug kept pulling until the surf overwhelmed the disabled boat and began sinking. two crew members now clung to the rails and to each other hoping to escape. they needed help immediately. it was a dire situation. it appears both of them had
flotation devices and they stayed above water until a coast guard boat rushed to help them. the men had some bruises and broken bones, but okay, though. moments later the boat sank. reportedly a candidate for the vacant chief's job at the los angeles police department. he's scheduled to interview for the job according to its anonymous source. after a 2017 career with the lapd. the l.a. times report says he's one of five cappndidates to replace chief charlie beck retiring in june. saying chief scott is focused on this city and the police department. a brief court appearance today of the suspect in the golden state killer case. the lawyer of 72-yield joseph deangelo asked a judge to stop prosecutors from taking any additional dna from her client. this is video from the

compel the president to testify, the president could fight it, but it's a battle that would likely go all the way to the supreme court and would be very difficult to win. when richard nixon tried to fight a subpoena to turn over his oval office tapes he lost in the supreme court from 9-0. so now the president's legal team trying to limit the time and scope of the interview with the special counsel. they're also saying they'd like to know the questions in advance. vonthen carl, abc news, the white house. the data firm at the head of facebook's privacy scandal is filing for bankruptcy and closing its doors. cambridge analytica says it is losing clients and facing legal fees because of the up roar of from the facebook case. the dow sunk and the dollar rose after the federal reserve left interest rates unchanged, which is what investors and analysts expected. closing under 24,000. the nasdaq dropped 29 points.
