(CNN) - While the discovery of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 debris is no doubt a gut punch to anyone who had been holding out hope that there were survivors, analysts can now start to piece together just what brought down this plane.
CNN's aviation correspondent Rene Marsh joins "The Lead" to discuss the latest in the search efforts.
With so few details about what happened to the AirAsia plane, investigators and experts are digging to find out what happened in the final moments.
CNN's Rene Marsh reports on the ongoing investigation.
(CNN) – Japanese made Takata airbags have been linked to 5 deaths. The potentially deadly airbags are in millions of cars, some have been recalled, some are still on the road.
For nearly three hours Thursday, senators grilled a Takata executive, auto executives from Honda and Chrysler, and the federal safety regulator National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
CNN's René Marsh reports.
(CNN) – Manufacturer Takata is under investigation, accused of covering up the potential dangers of exploding airbags for years. The new allegations were first reported by The New York Times.
At least four deaths and multiple injuries have been linked to the faulty bags. In one deadly case, police say the woman suffered what looked like stab wounds in her neck, but it is believed metal shrapnel from the exploding airbag caused her injuries.
Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, and Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, called on the Department of Justice Friday to open a criminal investigation.
