4:00 pm
royal baby trivia was truly trivial. >> cloth diapers are disposable. prince william the first royal baby to use disposable diapers and presumably this baby will too. how could you have lived without knowing this. i have more. >> forget having a buy oy or a girl. >> i am hoping the "game of thrones" she has a dragon. >> reporter: birth of a royal dragon would have been news. >> that's it for me. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. >> out front next, breaking news. a plane has had an emergency landing in new york city. we are going to be going there live in a moment. >> and a 51-year-old mother flies out of her seat and dies riding a roller coaster at a texas amusement park.
4:01 pm
first clues, what happened and how common it might be. it is a boy. the royal baby is here. what's his name? let's go "outfront." ♪ ♪ and good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. we have two big stories today. prince william and duchess catherine welcomed a baby boy this afternoon. the newest member of the royal family. more in a moment. we want to begin with breaking news, very scary situation in new york city at la guardia airport. southwest flight 345 from nashville forced to make a faulty landing. as you can see there, look at the angle, the nose completely flat on the ground there on the tarmac. a live picture of the boeing 737. this is from our affiliate wabc. and the plane, leaning precipitously forward,
4:02 pm
surrounded by emergency vehicles. there on the back of the plane if you look carefully there, bear with me you can see the emergency chute. passengers were evacuated back of the plane, after it landed 3:45 eastern time. according to the faa no reports of injuries. still developing. we don't have formal word on that yet. and they have said that there were many ambulances around. that could have been out of precaution, we're not sure at this moment. out front tonight, mary snow, following the story for us. and has the latest. mary, obviously still a lot of questions, what can you tell us about the southwest flight? >> we can tell you, erin, although the faa is saying there are no reported injuries. a source knowledgeable about the incident did tell cnn that three people were injured on this southwest flight. that landed at la guardia airport just about an hour and 15 minutes ago. on runway four at la guardia. what the faa is telling us, flight 345, reported possible
4:03 pm
front landing gear issues before landing. and that the plane's nose gear collapsed as the -- as the aircraft landed on runway four. again the faa is saying the plane safely came to a stop. that no injuries were reported. but we are hearing from a source, knowledgeable about the incident, saying there were three people injured. as we mentioned, the passengers have been removed from the plane. and according to the source, speaking to cnn saying the plane landed, the nose gear claollaps after the landing. and southwest came out with a short statement saying this was flight 345 and expected to come out with more details. we are waiting to hear more from southwest airlines. erin. >> thank you very much. mary snow, with the latest. as mary was telling you. obviously a developing story. with still a lot of questions.
4:04 pm
i want to bring in a man who witnessed the landing gear collapse as the southwest jet touched down for landing. and i am joined on the phone now. windham, you saw this happen. we are still unclear what kind of warning the pilot may have had. what kind of landing it was. what did you see? >> hey, erin, you know we saw it right after it touched down. so we are not sure whether the landing gear collapsed after they landed or whether it never came down in the first place. all we saw was a shower of sparks, basically. and the two back wheels, the two back landing gears were in fine shape. but we did see wheels from the back landing gear roll down the runway they detached from the landing gear after the plane had touched down. >> all right, so after the plane had touched down, which is obviously very important. we have a pilot who will come on after you. see the significance of that particular detail, windham. i know you also saw the
4:05 pm
evacuation. after you saw the plane land, how far down the runway did it get? and then once you saw it stop, how long till those chutes came out and passengers start getting off? >> it made it fairly far down the runway. seemed like a very well-controlled landing considering the circumstances. but they did land, it looked like they landed on the grass right next to the runway or stopped on the grass. it took a while after the plane stopped at the end. it was a good 1:30, 2:00 before the chutes were evacuated. it sounded, sounds like there are still people on the airplane right now for whatever reason. that are waiting to get off. there are plenty of nypd, police cars in the area on the tarmac. they were the first responders to the incident. and then we saw plenty of fire trucks and other ambulances and nypd cars that followed after that. >> you did see -- do you have any sense, would have ben hard from where you are, we're frying
4:06 pm
to ascertain how many injuries there were, you saw a lot of ambulances and emergency vehicles going to the scene, right? >> we saw one slide come out of the rear at first. it seemed like a very, whether they were taking their team to get out or whether they were trying to ascertain what was going on inside the plane. we have no idea. but there was a large group of people that came out first. then it seems like there was a slower evacuation after that. so, whether they were just trying to figure out what the extent of the injuries were or, or whether there was something else going on, we don't really know. >> all right, windham, thank you very much. we appreciate it. as we said, windham actually saw the plane as it landed. without that front landing gear. i want to bring in mark weiss, former pilot with american airlines, he experienced faulty landing gear while trying to land the plane. mark, thank you for taking the time. when you heard what windham said it looked like the gear collapsed after landing what does that tell you?
4:07 pm
>> well it seems to indicate that the pilot had no prior indication that there was any, any malfunction or anything that would give them word that there was going to be a problem on touchdown or on the rollout portion of the landing. >> so they wouldn't have had a warning. then what does that mean -- does that surprise you? we always hear about southwest that they -- that they fly a fleet with one kind of plane, the 737s. they should know the plane inside and out. shouldn't they have had some kind of warning or -- >> every crew knows their airplane inside and out. and believe it or not we actually train in simulators for situations like this. for the nose gear collapsing on landing, for it not coming down, for a mainla landing gear not coming down, collapsing. these are scenarios we run through on a regular basis in the simulators. what it also tells you -- there
4:08 pm
are a few clues here -- the fact that there were no fire trucks at the end of the runway which would have said that the pilot had enough time to say i need to declare an emergency. and have emergency equipment standing by. or because la guardia has short runways it probably would have been in the pilot's thinking to say what are my options? what airports are nearby? where i can burn some fuel so the airplane will be lighter and potentially less flammable if there is a -- if there is a wing that breaks or fuel tank that is ruptured? where else can i go? kennedy? newark? that have long run ways that. would give you an indication that they had enough time to think about this. to get the passengers ready for emergency evacuation. to get the flight attendants prepared to have the passengers in a brace position. >> obviously, they didn't have all that. at least from what we understand. mark, when you see the picture
4:09 pm
we have up here, and the plane at the sharp angle, the jet with the front, with the lack of nose landing gear, you know, there's no evidence that they knew, right at this point anything was going to happen. how dangerous could the landing have been, given something that you just mentioned. it landed at la guardia that has some of the shortest runways in this country. >> well that is a potential problem, oi mei mean, obviously. you have to keep in mind, that the pilot never stops flying the airplane. you are flying the airplane right through touchdown and rollout. and that portion of the flight would have been the rollout. so somebody kept it on the runway. you want to land on the center of the runway. if you do have a problem. you want to have enough difs tans difs -- distance on either side to maneuver the aircraft. this looks like the pilot did a very good job getting the aircraft stopped and getting the people evacuated.
4:10 pm
with the evacuation it is very common -- you want to make sure that you assess the situation because typically when you evacuate an airplane, somebody is going to get hurt, sprained ankles, broken bones, that is very common. you want to get -- the fire -- fire people on the ground, next to you, air traffic control, in the control tower, can see any fire or anything. before you put people out of the airplane. you want to make sure that it is safe to do that. flight attendants. looks like they did a good job on this one as they did on the asiana crash. >> thank you, appreciate your time on this and that story. later on new developments in the crash situation. >> police in cleveland wonder if they're dealing with a serial killer. and med ral reports on the woman who died after falling out of the roller coaster in texas. what did she tell other people on the ride before it started. later the royal baby, you couldn't miss this story
4:11 pm
tonight. we will share it with you. now there is a big question. the baby is here -- what is its name? the first look inside the 777 that crashed in san francisco. we have the pictures. they'll make you ask -- how could anyone have survived? weekdays are for rising to the challenge. they're the days to take care of business. when possibilities become reality. with centurylink as your trusted partner, our visionary cloud infrastructure and global broadband network free you to focus on what matters. with custom communications solutions and responsive, dedicated support, we constantly evolve to meet your needs. every day of the week. centurylink® your link to what's next.

our second story, a suspected serial killer in ohio. for the second time, in three months, a horrifying story in cleveland. michael madison charged with three counts of aggravated murder and kidnapping after three women were found wrapped
4:15 pm
in plastic in east cleveland. one victim found friday in a garage madison leased two others found nearby saturday. police say madison may have been influenced by a serial killer and there could be other victims. outfront, michael savage in east cleveland. >> reporter: 35-year-old suspected killer, michael madison stood before a judge. >> punishable by possible death or life in prison and $100,000 fine. do you understand that? >> yes. >> reporter: his bond set at $6 million. $2 million for each of the three women he is accused of killing. authorities also released the i.d. of one alleged victim, angela deskins of cleveland. the grisly discoveries shocked many including the mayor of east cleveland. >> three individuals who were just minding their own business and being good human beings that they are and were were killed senselessly by an individual who has no regard for human life. >> reporter: there are fears
4:16 pm
more bodies may be found. >> we don't know how many more in the community that is missing because again you don't hear about it until something such as this. >> reporter: the madison case is the latesten a se ein a series s of women who disappeared in the cleveland area. in may, three young women, missing for a decade were rescued from this home on the city's west side. >> help me, i am amanda berry. >> reporter: in 2007, a man was sentenced to death after police found 11 bodies in his home on the eastside. leaving many to wonder what is going on in and around cleveland. gary norton, the mayor says monsters can be anywhere. >> violence occurs in iowa, in florida, it occurs in texas it occurs in ohio. >> reporter: factors like the economy may play a role. >> there are neighborhood conditions, disorganization,
4:17 pm
abandoned properties, people sort of minding their own business these are factors that are worth looking into, about whether they create an environment where individuals that are looking to perpetrate these kinds of violent crimes may choose to live. >> reporter: northeast ohio has been learning from its tragedies after the case, the task force came up with 26 recommendations including a police unit dedicated to missing persons along with the city website and specializing training for police officers and dispatchers. and that heightened awareness may have paid off. madison was in custody within hours of the discovery of the first body. authorities say possibly preventing an alleged killer from striking again. getting back to the idea of how an urban blight can provide a sort of camouflage to criminal predators, the mayor of east cleveland told me in his community alone, only three square miles, erin, he has more than 2,500 abandoned and vacant homes.
4:18 pm
erin. >> martin savage, thank you. >> now to texas, and that deadly roller coaster ride. the medical examiner confirmed that the 51-year-old mother who flew out of her seat moments after the roller coaster she was on, died from multiple traumatic injuries. the accident happened friday evening at six flags over texas in arlington. you can look at the height of that roller coaster. tonight, it may surprise you that it is up to six flags, not federal investigators to actually determine what went wrong. yes, that's what happens when things like this happen. ed, what are you learning about what actually did happen in the moments before the woman died? >> you know what is interesting in all of this, erin, six flags over texas officials are refusing to provide any details about what they have been able to learn in the last few days since the tragedy happened. much of what we learned was coming from the witness whose
4:19 pm
saw it firsthand and described rosy as voicing some concern about the lap restraint that was on her seat, she wasn't convinced it was secured properly, and the graphic explanations of how she tumbled out of the roller coaster ride and fell to her death. you know, six flags officials say they vow to continue their investigation, but so far, providing, not providing a lot of detales to what they learned so far. >> what have you learned about the safety record of this ride. given what we said, actually the theme parks themselves that investigate when something goes wrong? >> that's one of the things feel will find rather interesting or shocking in all of this. this is a loosely regulated industry. here in texas, it is, six flags that will conduct its own investigation as to what happened. no outside police agency or state agency. the amusement park is required to report injuries with the texas department of insurance. we learned in the last five
4:20 pm
years they reported 12 injuries, a lot included ankle sprains, neck sprains, concussion, sore ribs, consistent with getting jostled around inside of a roller coaster, but nothing as catastrophic as what we saw friday night. >> thank you very much. and please let us know what you think about that industry. which is so widespread around the country. people are on theme park ride all the time this time of year. it is self-regulated. and george zimmerman reappears out of hiding and involved in another incident. >> and then this man leaked a photo of the boston marathon bombing suspect. so, should he be fired for doing it? >> later, the word selfie sounds inappropriate. i was fine with this picture of ge geraldo rivera. but a lot of you were not. ♪ our business needs more cases.

our third story, painted as a racist and murderer, today, george zimmerman, a good samaritan. zimmerman came to the rescue of a family trapped in an overturned car. the former neighborhood watchman has been in hiding since the trial ended apparently that doesn't mean he is staying indoor indoors. i want to bring in victor blackwell, in sanford, florida, victor, what exactly happened here? >> reporter: first, erin, no one was sure george zimmerman was in the state of florida much less than a mile from where he shot and killed trayvon martin. it was wednesday night, 5:45,
4:25 pm
when there was a car crash on interstate 4. listen to one of the 911 calls. >> are they still there? >> the vehicle is still there. it is on its side. there is people on there. it's not on fire or anything. >> reporter: there were two parents in there and their two children. george zimmerman and another person helped to pull out those people. there were no injuries. actually, the attorneys for george zimmerman, he met with them after the crash and didn't mention it to them. why we are getting this now several days after the crash, no one knows.t toers. you are in sanford, it was close, the accident itself to where trayvon martin was killed. that would mean at least at that moment zimmerman was nearby. everyone thought, my gosh, this guy would get as far away from sanfo sanford, florida, as quickly as possible? >> i'm sure most people were
4:26 pm
surprise hed he was so close. the question is, is he in the area now. behind me there is a church full of people, holding a town meeting organized by the naacp, entitled, george zimmerman this ain't over. calling for the federal charges, civil rights violation and want him to lose his concealed carry permit. this organization is planning a march in the community in august. we will see when they say "this ain't over" what that means to move this community forward. erin. >> still outfront, the royal baby, yes we have the details. weight, time of birth, all except for a really big one -- and we will answer the question as to why people care so much about this story. >> then, some one, did someone try to kill the pope on his first foreign trip. a report from brazil on late-breaking news there. >> and pictures inside the 777 that crash landed in san francisco.

4:30 pm
welcome back to the second half of "outfront" we start with stories, focus on our reporting from the front lines. i want to begin with incredible images from the aftermath of the
4:31 pm
as asiana plane crash in san francisco. the first picture you are looking at right now. you can see these are plane seats, shows unusual nature of the crash. seats collapse forward not backward. the flight carrying 291 passengers. just look at this, everybody. that's what it looked like. business class/first-class. it is completely destroyed. as we reported you may remember people were initially told not to evacuate this plane. the entire evacuation process once it started because the flight attendants saw flames, took 90 seconds. reynolds says that's what saved so many lives. when flames start, obviously exiting the plane is difficult or, not impossible as reynolds emphasized. when you seat inside, you realize what a few seconds more could have meant. >> more than 52,000 people on facebook want massachusetts state police sergeant sean murphy to keep his job. he is the trooper relieved of his duties friday after releasing crime scene photos of alleged bomber, dzhokhar
4:32 pm
tsarnaev to boston magazine without getting police department approval. murphy says he released the photosen response to a controversial rolling stone cover image of tsarnaev. now we have learned sergeant murphy will face a closed hearing tomorrow to determine his fate as a trooper. should he keep his job? let us know what you think on twitter here at outfront, cnn. in cairo supporters and opponents of the ousted president morsi, clashed today. some of the violence occurred when morsi supporters marched towards the united states embassy and moved towards opponents in the square. then they were face to face. we know at least one person was killed. 26 were injured. european union is report lead calling for morsi's release. basically on house arrest. experts tell us the idea that morsi who a year ago was elected to the presidency with 13 million votes in a democratic election is being held in detention is outrageous. >> it has been 716 days since
4:33 pm
the u.s. lost its top credit rating what are we doing? existing home sales fell in june and hit 3 1/2 month high the month before. home prices when you look at the median up 13.5% from a year ago. that is a real housing recovery. >> and now, our fourth story out front. it's a boy. highly anticipated arrival of the newest member of the royal family arrived at 4:24 p.m. local time in london. 14 hours of labor, shy of that for katherine, duchess of cambridge and she delivered a boy, 8 pounds, 6 ounces. by way, way, pretty incredible. because she was so thin it looked like the baby could be a lot less than that. in incredible shape all the way through. official announcement outside, buckingham palace, where queen elizabeth ii was the first to learn the news. her royal highness and her child are both doing well. hundreds of people are still gathered outside the gates to revel in the moment. it would be 12:33:44, they're
4:34 pm
still there. the world will have to wait until prince william and kate leave the hospital. at that point that's the first time we might hear the name of the child. their son is now third in line to the throne. out front, max foster at st. mary's hospital in london with the latest. obviously, that baby, well, i don't know -- a newborn, right. it is probably awake right now in the hospital behind you. its parents desperately needing some sleep. tell us about the birth and what you know. it was certainly a rather long labor for her. >> yeah, she came in in the very early hours of the morning at dawn, sort of 6:00ish local time. just kate and william that came off to the hospital. he was there throughout the labor. as you say, 4:00 in the afternoon local time. the baby finally came. about a four-hour gap between them and the announcement. because they wanted to spend time with the baby alone i was told. so, this was a very hands-on,
4:35 pm
very modern father if you compare him to previous royals. and they tend not to be so involved. and i can tell you, erin, he is staying overnight in the hospital as well. so, our reckoning is, tomorrow, possibly in the morning, they'll come out on the steps with the baby for the first time. and i do think we will get the name then. that was the indication, i was given today. assuming they've chosen a name. i am sure they have. we will probably get it all tomorrow. it will be quite an iconic moment in british history when you see them on the step. diana did exactly the same with william, 31 years ago now. >> and as you say, kind of that picture, that wl stand for this moment, to so many. right now it is, a headline. we don't have any images yet. no one has seen the baby. no one has seen the parents. but, you think we will get the game tomorrow? i have been hearing sometimes it takes weeks before we find out the name of the baby. you think this time we will get it? >> well i was talking to one of
4:36 pm
the royal aide. they were talking how when william was born it took a few days to announce the name. when harry was born they announced it on the way out of the hospital. they said, probably think more about harry in terms of the announcement. so, that's pretty clear that they -- they are considering releasing it earlier. also if you keep, if there is a name, they have decided on a name, you are keeping the story going a lot, lot longer. i think there has been such a spectacular media coverage of this story. they wouldn't mind if it died down sooner rather than later. no need to extend it. in terms of pictures, family pictures. in the next few weeks there will be a stills photographer invited to take shots which will be shared. they're going to be very, very private family, erin. they're already private as a couple. this will make them more protective seeing the way william has been over today. i think it is going to be as private as he can until he feels comfortable about all of this.
4:37 pm
>> thank you very much, to max foster, who put in a long day of labor himself. we talked about the spectacular, obsessed media coverage. yes, you are either one of those people who care a lot about this story. or say "what are they talking about all day?" we will have more on that in a moment. i want to bring in our royal commentators, spent her teen years at kensington palace. we are joined from london. great to see both of you. obviously the two who know the most about this. victoria, when people have a baby now you get an e-mail with a picture. you know, you might call the parents first. or whatever. that's not how this works right. queen elizabeth ii gets the news first and then who? >> and then it would have been the middletons, charles and camilla, the government ministers. there is a hierarchy of people that get to find out first. i think what was quite interesting, palace aides have been talking about the spectacle and theater, this announcement coming out.
4:38 pm
being police escorted to buckingham palace and being on the easel. that being the first. they changed their minds before that happened and sent out an e-mail blast. on the one hand a bit disappointing. building up to all the drama. at the same time it prevent aid stampede. it was simpler, more efficient. the decision was made. >> there might have been a death in the stampede to the easel. i would not have been surprised. katie, let me ask you, prince william, max foster reported, he is there in the hospital. they will have their private place. he is there tonight. max was saying, look they expect them to come out and give the iconic photo in front of the hospital tomorrow morning. so when do you think we might hear from them? at that point? will they say the name right then? will we have to wait? how does that work? >> well i think max is probably right. we know there will be a few words from the proud father. i don't know whether katherine will say anything. it will be interesting, won't it. who will be holding the baby? if william is going to say a few
4:39 pm
words. possibly kate holding the baby. i would imagine if they decided on the name they will probably say it there and then. i do think they will want to bring the media circus what it has become. you can see behind me. still people camped at the palace. my bet they will be here all night. they will want to bring it to a close. want to go back to kensington palace and enjoy this special time with their baby. take a step now back out of the media limelight. this has been the most anticipated royal baby in many, many, many decades. as you say, that picture tomorrow will be iconic of them on the steps, offering many memories. >> certainly will. and there were a lot of americans outside of that palace. maybe more than british people. separate with our conflict we have. a whole revolution, now we're obsessed with the monarchy. before we go, what do you think the name will be? >> i think, said from day one, i thought it would be george arthur phillip. george simply because it was the
4:40 pm
queen's beloved father goes back centuries, george vii. william can be stubborn. if he knows it is the favorite. long shot. arthur or albert. >> albert would be good. thank you very much to both of you. we appreciate it. >> now as you may have noticed it has been unavoidable for weeks the world has been obsessed with the news of the royal baby. it is an obsession that is not new. it's actually more than a century, royal fanatics have awaited the news of the royal birth here in america. yes, here in america. the fascination has reached new heights. we take a look at some of the media frenzy that -- covered this over the past -- well, many, many years. and here it is. ♪ >> the one job kate has to do immediately after the wedding was get pregnant. off awe the duke and duchess of cambridge, kate middleton, expecting a baby. >> pictures of her, baby bump

4:42 pm
>> you say people, we are talking men and women. women care a lot. men can care less. telling you. you have a facebook page, go visit. >> i am not on facebook. anecdotally i believe. >> this is a female story. it's become so big. people are looking for something uplifting out there. the zimmerman trial, racism, not exactly a happy story. you get phil mickelson, ultimate family guy. kate middleton. you can't find anybody on earth who doesn't like her. who better from central casting, than her, and looking for something positive. what better than a royal baby. >> president obama issued a statement, obviously, most important ally, michelle and i are pleased to congratulate the duke and duchess of cambridge on the joyous occasion of the birth of their first child. we wish them all the blessings that parenthood brings. >> any time i see someone getting a sound bite outside buckingham palace, they were
4:43 pm
american. americans care a lot about this. for a country that says we don't want a monarchy. >> amazing, right? >> pretty amazing. >> a big story. follow the money. the ratings have been incredible. fox and msnbc doing the political stuff. they're covering the story. cnn going all in on it. last week they did a show, 10:00 p.m., preempted anderson and put on will and kate plus one. new day, on five minutes. won last week, one day. why? cnn is going all in on the story like they did with human interest stories. that steams to be the trend right now. and msnbc, fox, political stuff. cnn saying let's find human interest stuff. nothing better than the story here. >> thank you for being part of our coverage. our show has not gone all in. we like the show. >> got a name? going to guess one? >> i will go with albert. >> i'm going north. >> going with north. >> was north taken? is north still out there? >> south is available. >> south is available.
4:44 pm
that or seven. i go with that one. >> all right. by the way, "will and kate plus one" watch it tonight. >> 10:00 p.m. >> yeah. >> that's a plug. >> thank you. appreciate your time. >> still "outfront" the pope made his first foreign trip. officials discover a bomb. an important story after this. and geraldo set twitter on fire this weeken. wasn't much going on. he tweeted a picture of himself barely wearing a towel. i am defending geraldo.
