TODAY’s Matt Lauer opens Friday’s broadcast with a breathtaking (and, according to Savannah, stomach-churning) view from the top of One World Trade Center as workers prepare to lift the final pieces of the spire that will take the tower to its full height of 1,776 feet.
A man known as Danny, who was held captive in his own car by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, tells TODAY’s Matt Lauer he doesn’t know why the pair didn’t kill him and describes what he thought about to get him through the ordeal.
