their final moemts.ments. nbc's katy tur reports. he first realized his dreams of flight. friends who flew with him say it was clear he had a love for the sky. what's still not clear, though is why he would crash a plane carrying 149 others into the side of a mountain. no answers, but the german tabloid "bild" recorded a time line of the last minutes from the cockpit voice recorder. the flight started normally with the captain apologizing for a delay. during the ascent he mentioned the copilot andreas lubitz that he didn't get a chance to use the rest room. lubitz tells the captain he can take over at any time. the captain asked lubitz to prepare for landing at dusseldorf and a few minutes later lubitz said "you can go now." the captain leaves. shortly of a he's gone lubitz can be heard pushing the chair back. the door clicks shut. the plane begins to descend.
air traffic control calls. no answer. the captain begins banging on the door yelling, "for god's sakes, open the door." passengers scream in the background. nbc news has not confirmed this account, authorities will neither confirm nor deny it. still, as the search continues lubitz motive remains a mystery. was it a personal crisis depression or other medical issue. lubitz had seen doctors for problems with his vision according to multiple reports, although it's unclear how severe. but as investigators try to sort it all out, this grieving father says it hardly matters. >> if there was a motive or reason we do not want to hear it. it's not relevant. what is relevant is it should never happen again. my son and everyone on that plane should not be forgotten ever. >> reporter: investigators have confirmed they have dna for about half of the victims. they are going to match that up with the dna they have been able to gather from the family members out there. but still quite a ways to go

to iran. while we're helping them with intelligence, we're also helping the iranians and working with them on that nuclear deal. the backdrop of course to all of this are those airstrikes that continued as of this morning in yemen, arab nations say they will put together a team of 40,000 soldiers a standing militia of sorts from all of those nations to fight, including in yemen. >> tracie potts, thank you. this morning one of the biggest names in american business is adding his voice to a public outcry. apple ceo tim cook his op-ed in the "washington post" said pro discrimination religious freedom laws are dangerous. he's talking about recent surge in two dozen states allowing business owners the right to refuse service based on religious freedom. it has received huge backlash from the gay and lesbian community particularly in indiana where the governor signed it into law last week. nbc's brian mooar reports.
>> reporter: the outcry against india and religious freedom restoration act are getting louder. critics see the new law as little more than legal cover for discrimination against gays and lesbians. governor mike pence suggested there's room for legislature to clarify wording. >> i'm open to that. we're not going to change this law. >> reporter: that means no specific protections for gays and lesbians. pence says the act is patterned after a federal law signed by president bill clinton and similar to measures passed by 20 state legislatures. >> then state senator barack obama voted for it when he was in the state senate of illinois. >> reporter: critics are focusing on the indiana laws in timing and calling for a boycott. seattle's mayor is banning official travel to the state. >> laws that actually say you can discriminate have no place in this country. >> the head of angie's list
