Weeks before a Germanwings co-pilot crashed a commuter plane into the French Alps, he was apparently told to go to a psychiatric clinic.
That's according to findings from France's Civil Aviation Safety Investigation Authority, which believes 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz intentionally crashed the flight last year.
The final report into the crash was released Sunday. In it, investigators called for doctors to weigh out the safety risks of their patients' conditions.
