          Behind the Headlines

          January 23, 2009

          From the inspiring to the tragic, Dr. Phil takes an in-depth look at unbelievable news stories that have captivated millions.


          The Survivors Speak

          Millions were inspired by the safe landing of US Airways Flight 1549, also dubbed the Miracle on the Hudson. Three passengers, Brad, Joshua and Denise, say they’re thankful to be alive, but they’re still haunted by memories of that fateful day.


          How can they deal with the psychological affects of the plane crash?

          Just how miraculous was the landing of Flight 1549, and how could something like this occur? Pilot Doug Watters joins Dr. Phil to walk through events leading up to crash.


          “This hasn’t been done before, successfully.”



          The Family Reacts

          Eleven-year-old Adam Herrman vanished 10 years ago, but his adoptive parents, Doug and Valerie, only reported him missing last month! Dr. Phil talks to the young man’s biological parents, Gerri and Irvin, and his foster aunt, Kim. Host Nancy Grace, HLN, weighs in.


          Who’s to blame for the disappearance of Adam Herrman? 



          Scene of a Crime?

          Kim says she’s hurt to learn that her sister and brother-in-law are considered suspects in Adam’s disappearance. She gives Dr. Phil cameras a glimpse of the home where the little boy once lived.


          “In my heart, I don’t think Adam’s alive.”
