Germanwings crash: French urge better health reporting rules

LE BOURGET, France — Aviation agencies around the world should draw up new rules requiring medical workers to warn authorities when a pilot’s mental health could threaten public safety, French investigators recommended Sunday in their report on the Germanwings plane crash.
