we're following what is happening in london. we haven't seen the royal baby yet. we did get a quick glimpse of the grandfather. watch. prince charles, duchess camilla arriving at the hospital. i want to bring in max foster at the hospital to give us a sense of what that moment was like. >> reporter: it was incredible. the interesting thing he said was he was asked about the baby and he said you'll see in a
minute. that's got us all braced. the duke and duchess could be coming out in a minute. we don't know what he meant. it seems quite clear cut to us and has us thinking they are on their way out. if you also consider they closed the road at one end and the hospital staff out, everyone's in position if they did want to come out right now. we haven't got the palace word yet but we're braced. >> we're excited about that moment. tell us about the crowd out there. it was quite electric. >> reporter: a lot of hospital staff. we can't turn the camera around but there's hospital staff all around us on these bridges and in the pens. lots of mens of the public trying to get here. this is a moment in british history.
these images will be iconic when they do happen. i'm sure it will happen soon. i've got the vibe. >> any hints on what the boy's name would be? i know people are betting on a couple of options. >> reporter: the most popular one in james which makes no sense at all because his brother is called james. i don't think he would choose another name of such a close family member. charles, phillip is a popular one. it's entirely based on speculation because nothing is leaked from the palace. we think we might get the name once they departed or as they depart. that was the form with prince harry. that's what some aides have suggested we look upon.
it does depend on whether they settled on a name. >> we'll be back to you as soon as the doors open. we're following everything from the hospital. we'll be following it throughout the day. a massachusetts state police officer who leaked the photos of the alleged boston bombers capture has learned his fate. this is sergeant sawn murphy. he came face-to-face with the officers who decided his punishment. he's been suspended for day. here are the pictures we're talking about. they're published on boston magazine website. the hearing ended about an hour ago. what did they think was appropriate for him for leaking those photos after being so upset when he saw the rolling stone cover? >> reporter: before the hearing even got under way, sergeant shaun murphy was heading inside and he was being peppered with questions. he said it's a good day. that's how he felt going into this meeting.
this first meeting of this kind. they had a representative from the police union at his side. the meeting lasted an hour. at its conclusion he was told he was placed on restrictive duty pending the outcome of the investigation. that's like being placed on a desk job for what he did. everybody knows in the city of boston and many people throughout the country know what he did in releasing those photos showing a bloodied and bruised bomber. he felt as though that was the true face of terrorism. not the face depicted on the cover of rolling stone which insulted the families and the victims by showing what he felt was a glamourized shot. since doing that lots of support for sergeant murphy. facebook page set up in his honor. 60,000 followers and counting. he was not able to say anything
further in terms of commenting. what he did do was he allowed his attorney and his 19-year-old son to speak on his behalf. >> my dad's kind of being a huge hero to me and throughout this process he's shown the characteristics that i hope to model myself after. if i could be one-fourth of the man he is, i couldn't be happier. >> this tragic event has touched all of us. it goes to show you that the depth of feeling and the depth of pain and the reaction to have people to that photograph and on the cover of the rolling stone. >> reporter: the family of slain m.i.t. officer also coming out in support of what sergeant murphy did. at this point sergeant murphy will have to wait for the outcome of that investigation to see what further punitive
damages he might have to suffer as a result of what he did. >> all right. thank you. appreciate that. authorities have now identified a second woman found dead over the weekend. this is in east cleveland, ohio. police say the woman's name is shatisha. she was 28 years old. she's one of three women found dead. michael madison has been charged with three counts of aggravated murder and three counts of kidnapping. police think he might be a serial killer and fear they will find more victims. 150 folks were flying on a southwest airline. flight 345 was arriving from nashville. the plan runs into trouble. the nose gear leaving ten people injured from that accident. passengers are not waiting to tell us what happened here. poppy harlow has more from the
airport. >> emergency vehicles. >> reporter: you can see sparks flying as southwest airlines flight 345 out of nashville lands hard sliding on its nose. >> the nose wheel collapsed. the aircraft skidded down the runway on its nose and veered off and came to rest in a grass area. >> reporter: 150 people aboard evacuated on emergency slides. >> i thought it was a terrible job of the pilot. i didn't realize what happened until i left the plane. >> like getting smashed in car wreck. >> very chaotic. flight attendants crying. >> reporter: the plane came safely to a stop. no injuries were immediately reported to air traffic control. the faa is investigating. >> we were sitting on the runway ready for take off. everyone pulled out their phones and there was this loud gasp. >> reporter: ten non-life threatening injuries were
reported but it comes on the heels of asiana flight earlier this month. three people died. the incident at la guardia closed the airport to incoming flights just over an hour but caused a ripple effect of flight delays. these photos show the scene inside the airport lounge where passengers waited hours. this morning many other passengers were waiting. >> they rebooked me this morning. >> now you have to go to jfk? >> right. >> somehow you have to get to chicago and l.a. today in. >> yes. >> we had to find a hotel. then they threw your luggage off on the concourse. >> reporter: at 6:59 this morning runway four reopened. the disabled southwest airplane was taken to a hangar for investigation. southwest is working the ntsb
and boeing for an investigation of this event. we express our utmost gratitude to responders who assisted us last night thank goodness the injuries weren't worse. the ntsb is continuing to gather information to decide if it will open a formal investigation. we know the plane's data recorder is now in washington at the ntsb labs. i want to bring you an update. southwest gave us some information about this plane. this boeing 737 saying it was last inspected on july 18th and began operating in october 1999. >> thank you poppy the appreciate it. coming up. >> i just witnessed an accident on the off ramp coming off of
417 to get onto i-4 over in sanford. >> guess who came to the rescue. george zimmerman. how he helped a family escape an overturn truck. bishop t.d. jakes is preaching a new message of how to move on. it's als ravages the body but not mind. it challenges the notion of what it means to be alive. my mother was diagnosed a year and a half ago and i'm going to share my story. "i'm part of an american success story,"
"that starts with one of the world's most advanced distribution systems," "and one of the most efficient trucking networks," "with safe, experienced drivers." "we work directly with manufacturers," "eliminating costly markups," "and buy directly from local farmers in every region of the country." "when you see our low prices, remember the wheels turning behind the scenes, delivering for millions of americans, everyday. "dedication: that's the real walmart"
yep, and no angry bears. up to 30% off. only at hotels.com. nothing stopped the rash from my bladder leakage. until now. [ female announcer ] new balmex adult care has activguard to soothe, protect, and relieve. finally, adult rash relief. keeping a low profile since a jury acquitted him in the shooting of trayvon martin, but four days after the verdict authorities say he took on the role of good issamaritan. some local civil rights leaders are skeptical about that report. victor blackwell explains. >> i just witnessed an accident on the off ramp coming off of 417 to get onto i-4 over in
sanford. >> reporter: a blue suv is driving on to the highway but the driving loses control and rolls into this field. >> looks like an explorer. there's some people at the car now. the vehicle still there. it's on its side. >> reporter: there's glass, a mirror, a floor mat still on the scene. by the time first responders arrived the parents and two children were outside the suv safely because two people stopped to help them. one of them was george zimmerman and all this happened from less than a mile where he shot trayvon martin monday night the story was met with skepticism. >> that's one of the most ludicrous, silly stuff i've seen before in my life. to do anything to validate a murder is wrong. >> we've been working the d.o.j. >> reporter: organizers announced a plan to put a repeal of stand your ground on the
ballot in 2014. >> if we lose what trayvon brought us together to do, we cannot wait until february and wait just for our legislatures, for our governor to veto this. we need to do this ourselves. >> reporter: after days of protests and rallies calling for federal civil rights charges, the police department had handed it s files over to the departmet of justice. this was a brief moment in the spotlight. he's presumably back in hiding. >> we did hear the skepticism from the minister. can authorities confirm it was george zimmerman at that accident? >> reporter: they were able to confirm that. there's no guarantee that the family, these two parents and their kids knew it was george zimmerman. they are doing okay. we're told before he left the scene he made contact with the deputy and you would be hard
pressed to find a law enforcement officer who does not know george zimmerman on sight. >> thank you. there's been a lot of anger and outrage over the verdict in the zimmerman case. what is next now? how do people move on? what do they need to do? i'm going to ask bishop t.d. jakes. he's going to join us live. our special guest. ♪ load! we keep moving to deliver what you need. and that means growth, lots of cargo going all around the globe. cars and parts, fuel and steel, peas and rice, hey that's nice! ♪ norfolk southern what's your function? ♪ ♪ helping this big country move ahead as one ♪ ♪ norfolk southern how's that function? ♪
all right. we're keeping our eyes on that door. this is going to be very important because cnn has learned that will and kathryn and that baby will be leaving the hospital within the half hour. we'll get a chance to see the first look at the royal baby boy. that's according to a royal source. we're not going to keep our eyes off of that door. we're going to be watching very closely. as soon as that happens we're going to bring that to you. we're also going to be following some other things. we're watching that door. there's a new poll that highlights the racial divide now over the jury's decision to acquit george zimmerman for killing trayvon martin. the new pugh research poll says
49% of whites are satisfied with the verdict compared to only 5% of the african-americans. 86% of blacks say they are dissatisfied with this decision. it has been now ten days since the verdict and emotions still running very high. one prominent leader weighing in on the case. t.d. skrjakes is founder of potter's house church. he's among the outraged. he joins us from new york. good to talk to you. >> thank you. >> there was an article for the huffington post and you eluded to the grief of trayvon martin's parents and how they are coping today. i want you to listen, if you would, to his mother who told anderson cooper about how their faith is helping them cope. >> you have strong faith. from day one you talked about that. has there been a moment where you doubted your faith that's made you question it? >> never. the only thing i question is why
we were selected as opposed to another family. i've gotten over those questions. i've gotten over that. i feel that he selected the right family. god wanted us to be the spokesperson. we just are being obedient to what we need to do and what god is telling us to do and what he's leading us to do. >> t.d. jakes, tell us how important is their faith in dealing not only with the tragedy of their son, the death of their son, but the disappointment over the verdict. what would you say to them? >> it's hard to kwaunquantify t level of faith you need to get through the death of your child or anyone through an act of violence. i think their faith has sustained them to go through this process with dignity and class and grace. we've not seen that on a bereaved mother and father in a number of years. i would encourage them to continue to hold on to the lord
and allow them to see the purpose of god in this painful moment. i think they see that as it relates to the greater good of defending other people's children and all senseless acts of violence. >> there's still a lot of anger and bitterness. you can see there's a racial divide in terms of how people saw this verdict. what needs to happen now in terms of a healing process between people who really do not understand each other about how they saw the outcome of this tragedy? >> one thing i would look at, not so much the 49% of the whites who think one way but the 51% who agree with the 86% of african-americans. i don't think it's as much about skin as it is about right. more and more people are on different sides of this because we don't think with our skin but our heart. the greater opportunity is to bring to the open and forefront some of the disparities that
exist amongst minorities and we have to fight for that because it's important that all people have equal access to the law, fair representation on the jury and that we engage in the judicial process that's critical for all americans. >> tell us about what's happening in dallas. this is next month. this is a megafast gathering and oprah winfrey invited to this. tell us what you're hoping to anticipate during that huge, huge celebration. >> it's going to be absolutely amazing. we're focusing on the family. families are coming in from all over the country, from around the world to this event. we're going to have great teaching and music. oprah has agreed to bring her life class there. as we talk about fatherhood and fatherlessness and some of the ills that exist in our community and how we can resolve those issues and ills.
there's going to be faith and family film festival. there's going to be entertainment of all types cedric the entertainer is joining us. people are logging onto our website and getting all kinds of helpful information. they're coming as far away as india to be part of megafest in dallas. >> thank you so much. a reminder, megafest beginning august 29th in dallas. thank you very much. >> thank you. coming up, i'm focusing on the deadly disease, als. we're talking about it because very little is known about the origins or the possibility of finding a cure. it ravages the body but not the mind. it hits home for me because my mom was diagnosed with als a year and a half ago. i'm going to show you first hand how families and patients are coping. we're going to talk about als, the impact, how it can impact not just one person but anyone. that is next on cnn newsroom. ion

it's mysterious, frustrating and frightening. little is known about it. it's als. it kills more than 100,000 people every year. it takes away their control of muscles and causing them to lose the ability to speak, swallow or move. for me it's personal. my mother was diagnosed with a disease a year and a half ago. this is our family story. >> these alarms are going off and mom is choking. she can't cough or swallow. >> she was struggling for the next breath. >> reporter: just five months prior she was leading the mardi gras parade at her birthday

body is weak. she has the grand kids around and taught my sister last weekend how to make gumbo. they are fascinated. somebody said imagine if you're sitting in chair and duct tape from head to toe and the only thing that's open the your eyes. your mind and your spirit very much alive. it's changed how i see the notion of being alive be you can't speak, you can't breathe, you can't move. what does it mean to be alive. it's that emotional connection you have with someone who you love. >> kwhawhat's amazing if you st have that connection even though she can't move or speak freely. you still have that connection. you see that in the video. >> she's the one if i'm having a bad day saying don't be a wimp. tell me, because i know it was a frustrating experience. this was something a year and a half, within a year and a half this is where we are with this
disease. it was simple as like slurring of the speech. you would think that's a stroke or a fall that she took, you would think that's arthritis and then we get this diagnosis. why is this so difficult to detect early on? >> i think you said it. it's so many other things. there's so many people have als misdiagnosis stories. it looks like so many other things. when you see slurred speech, for example, you're going to think stroke which is much more common than als. that's rough because you want to diagnosis as quickly as you can. >> thank you. we'll have two other parts of the series as well. we'll be talking with you. if you would like to read more about als and how you can help push for a cure go to cnn.com impact your world. we're going to be talking to former nfl star steve gleeson. he was forced to retire after he
learned he had als. we met up with him and his wife a couple of weeks ago to hear his amazing story of survival. how he is mobilizing to fight for a cure. you can see the story and the rest of my three part series on als. that's thursday at 1:00 eastern and also friday as well. you can go to www.malveaux. we're watching everyone. we're on royal baby watch. we anticipate moments from now that we will see a first glimpse of the royal baby boy. i want to bring in max foster outside the hospital now. the anticipation palpable. tell us what's going on outside. >> reporter: any moment now we're going to find out they
will be coming out on the steps. you're going to see the duck and duche duchess. they're going to go back into the hospital, put the baby into car seat and come back out and go to kenningston palace. in the next few minutes we'll see this royal baby. >> set the scene outside of that hospital. you've been there for days in anticipation of this moment. what's taking place. give us a sense of what's around you. >> reporter: the road is still sort of vaguely open but there's a massive crowd all the way down the pavement. we can't turn the camera around because it's so jam packed. there's absolute wealth of photographers and journalists all poised for this moment. hospital staff around all the
windows looking down. all pointed on that doorstep. it's so iconic after when william and diana appeared there 31 years ago. >> we're seeing a couple of people posted outside. i imagine there's a lot more folks when you see this baby come out making sure that nothing goes wrong. >> reporter: absolutely. there's police all the way down here and officers. there's absolutely rock solid safe. we're all in pens. they know how to keep us in as well. this is an exciting moment. there's a real sense of excitement here. it's going to be very noisy and very bright. the baby will have quite a shock to the real world. he's only a day old. he hasn't been outside before. he's going to have this major introduction to the world. he's being born into this world of media which is so explosive.
the first big birth in the twitter age. this is going to be so symbolic of what that baby is going to face in the years to come. all of this scrutiny. all royals have had that over the years and most celebrities but not under this level of media attention. when william came out there were only two tv crews. i can't even count them for you on this day. >> the grand introduction about to happen moments away. we'll keep our eyes trained on that door. we'll take a quick break but as soon as someone walks through that door we'll come to you live. [poof!]
i want to welcome all of our viewers here. this is a historic moment. we're keeping our eyes on the door outside the hospital. we expect the royal baby to emerge with his parents. we have full team coverage. we're on the ground here. max foster is right outside the hospital. matthew chance is in kensington.
w we have victoria. this is an extraordinary time and an extraordinary moment here. i want to start off with you if we can. max, outside of give us a sense of what it is right now. the electricity in the air. the anticipation in the moment of this loyal baby emerging. >> reporter: we've built up to this. we had the prince of wales. we had the parents of both sides coming today. we didn't know if it would be today or tomorrow. very, very soon it will happen. we're waiting for a five-minute warning. i can tell you what's going to happen or what the plan is. they generally stick to the plan. what's going to happen is you'll see the duke and duchess come out with the new prince. they'll pose. william will come down and
answer a couple of questions. then the family will go back inside. they'll put the baby into the a car seat. they'll come out with the car seat and drive back to kensington palace. the parents have been so hands on. william has been there throughout the labor. he stayed in overnight. they'll put the baby in the car seat and drive off. whether he will drive or not that will be another sign this is a another hand's on couple. >> that will be amazing to see. we think that's where they are headed next, is that right? >> reporter: yeah, we're almost certain that's going to be the case. this is kensington palace, it's where the royal couple and their son will be living. there's hundreds of thousands of dollars that's been spent over the course of the past several months. also renovating the apartment. apartment number 1a which will
the apartment where the royal couple will live. once they have left the hospital, we're hoping to see at some point very shortly. the expectation is they will come here by car and start their new lives together in this what will be their family home in london. >> i want to bring in kate williams. we've been following this for days now. it goes from one place to the other. what do we think will unfold at buckingham palace? it's official the pst. it's a baby boy. >> reporter: hopefully, we'll see them in about ten minutes. they'll be going out of hospital and prince charles came out. he shouted back marvelous. you'll see him in a minute. that was pretty exciting. i think we can expect to see the
royal baby within about 5, 7:00. obviously they want to get him home and get him to bed. there's no way any baby will sleep through those flash photography lights. >> by 7:00 that's in the next couple of minutes. i want to go to our royal commentator. tell us about the historic moments of this. a lot of people talked about princess diana. give us a sense of what we'll see. >> reporter: i think this will be a very poignant moment for all of us. he and his wife will be standing on the same door that charles and diana stood on with him 31 years ago. we miss her presence always. we'll see them come out. he spoke to the press.
i think william is going to do the same thing. what charles didn't have to deal with is the car seat. they weren't required in 1982. i think it's very sensible that william is going inside to do the car seat. that seems to be a rite of passage for all new parents trying to figure out how it works. >> you've been covering many years, the royals. what do you make of the differences? you talk about the car seats and the tweets. there's a lot of tradition that goes along with the moments as well. >> there is. this is what makes england and great britain exactly what it is because this is the kind of tradition that's glued this country together. glued its people together for thick and thin for generations. it's very, very different from other royals around europe who as we have seen over the last several months and years have been retiring in favor of their
younger, perhaps more able sons and daughters. that's in the going to happen here. the queen of england is not going to abdicate. this is the kind of thing that gives a jolt of life, a jot of hope. a jolt of real pleasure. a sense that all is right with the world because we do live in a very difficult world, difficult times with not just the financial crisis but with wars all over the place, natural disaster. so many children who we report upon on a daily basis who are the victims of the most terrible crimes and devastating diseases sometimes and the kind of slaughter that we see in syria. this is what people see every single day on their newspapers and televisions and online. this kind of story is so important for that reason as well. it's kind of antedote to the hardship and cynicism that we live with. people are longing for something
that brightens up their day. combined with the royal family that's such an integral part of this country. most people wandering around with a smile on their face. i want to go back to case. prince williams said the baby is marvelous. i anticipate that we'll see a lot more of the family in the days ahead. >> well prince charles obviously came out and he was delighted. he issued a statement saying he was thrilled, proud, and overjoyed. we didn't expect him to give a comment necessarily, but the middleton's had also done so as well. the parents were fabulous. when they said how is the babe, he said marvelous, marvelous,
and he got us all excited here. he said you'll see them in a minute. and it's just been action here ever since. that big baby shot is coming. that shot of charles, diana, and william on the steps, but today william and kate and the baby. the baby will probably be asleep, he is the future king of the united kingdom. indeed many people in the world are absolutely fascinated. in the moment he is living in blissful ignorance. soon he will be very aware of just how famous he is. >> being a royal watcher, you've known for decades and decades now what the experience is like. how is this little baby, this
little boy, who will become the king, how will his life be different than what we have seen? >> i think most importantly the way it will be different is we live in a multimedia age now. we have pages and pages and people are dieing to fill them with pictures of them. while diana may have had a photographer follow them every now and then, they could go fairly unnoticed. now everyone has a camera phone. they are eager for every little tidbit of news. this baby will be the most photographed, watched, and talked about baby in history. we're all trained, our cameras and eyes, we're watching as you are there. this is the door that we will see, of course, the duke and
duchess with the new prince coming out. this is the first time the world will get a chance to see this new prince, hair to the throne, soon to be, eventually to be king. you can just imagine the excitement and electricity outside of this hospital as the world waits for a glimpse of this new prince. i was talking about victoria here. we are talking about the different era and age, do you think the expectations of what he is expected to do will also be different in some ways? >> you can almost guarantee that every move this child makes is going to be closely examined by not just britain, but the media around the oral and the public around the world. everyone has a camera phone, he will be photographed, videoed,
documented everywhere he goes. i think it will be very fascinating to see the first glimpse this baby will get of that international stardom. he has been born into it essentially. when he moves out of that hospital, he will be greeted with frankly an awesome vision, if you can see it at this point. the world international media taking photographs, asking questions, and that's just the first taste of what this young prince will have to deal with, cope with, and endure over the course of his life. it's going to be a big challenge for him. >> max, we can't bring you in enough and talk to you enough. you're there, watching that door, paint the picture for us here. what is it like to be there? >> it's just an extraordinary
scene. there is cameras and journalist all focussed on that doorstep. it will be, you know, almost a symbolic moment born into the social media age. and it's going to have a spectacular debut when william was born here 31 years ago, there was just two camera men. and i can't even count them here. so there will be a lot of discussion if there will be a picture of the baby's face, what william will say when he goes to the cameras. he will only take a couple questions but he will speak at the microphone that we're going to hear.
we are not going to get the name of the baby tonight. >> let's bring in our royal commentator. there are some names that people are talking about that they think are possibilities. >> george has been the front runner from day one once people started playing the the name guessing game. it pays tribute to the queens grandfather. there have been six george's. we may see charles, we may see arthur, i think it's a long shot for a first name as well. and the legend of king arthur. and numerous princes. james is a favorite up there with george. i think you're seeing
continuity, history, what will be interesting is to see frances, which is diana and michael's middle names. >> kate, talk about the history of royal babies being brought forward. until diana, all royal babies were born at home, and they were not shown until the chrisen i christenning. they were hidden away in the
palace. we're keeping our eyes on that door. all eyes on the possibility, very, very soon, of the first glimpse of the new royal baby boy. tell us again. sometimes it's difficult for people to relate to this. this is a very british and royal moment. but at the same time it captivates your attention. what's the draw? >> it's a fairy tale, and everybody can identify with that, and it's a birth, and everybody can identify with that. this place makes it is what it is. this kind of royal pageantry. the royal wedding you saw that turns hundreds of machines, perhaps more, perhaps a billion viewers on television, and brought $500 million pounds into
the country, and the queen's jubilee. it brings money to this country and gives it a real shot in the arm and an infusion when necessary. we're here, and you mentioned the parliament that's behind me. the building has seen so much and so many periods of history. one of the the most recent things it did here was to pass legislation that had the baby been a girl, would have seen a change in the royal succession. the girl baby had she been born, would have been third in line to the throne, the the latest heir. that is a change with protocol. it has always been the boy who has been the heir. so it's been a big, big change. it was a lot of wishful thinking, certainly amongst many women in the country.
we have a camera and many people's eye is on big ben, they're timing every minute and second of what's going on, but the bells have been going on for hours. now you can hear the 7:00 local bells of big ben chiming. one of the ways this baby was welcomed, today, many hours after it's birth, was by the major abbyes and cathedrals. >> we watch for the very first viewing of the new royal baby boy. we want to go to brook baldwin now. hello, thank you everyone. welcome to the viewers in the united states and around the world. here
