4:00 pm
be sure to join us again tomorrow in "the situation room." to our viewers here in the united states, happy thanksgiving. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. next, breaking news, new fears, radical islamists have infiltrated airports around the world. and more breaking news, vladimir putin deploying anti-aircraft missiles to syria. the surviving pilot from the downed russian jet speaking out for the first time. and new protests erupting in chicago after police released the video of gentlemlaquan mcdo shot 16 times by a white police officer. let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm erin burnett. new york city deploying the most officers ever for the thank giving holiday.
4:01 pm
thousands of terror police at the thanksgiving macy's day event. expecting millions of people. tourists and children will line the parade route. it is a primed target. the beefed-up security comes as we learn an alarming new development. brussels says that at least ten of the airport employees had terror ties. the number of radical islamists with access to planes could be as high as 50. this comes as we learn more about the most wanted man in europe, salah abdeslam. the man who drove him went to syria in 2014. and then president obama spoke about destroying isis. >> we're going after isil wherever it hides. we have conducted over 8,000 air strikes on isil strongholds and equipment. those air strikes, along with
4:02 pm
our partners on the ground, have taken out key leaders, taken back territory from isil in both iraq and syria. >> martin savidge is "outfront" live in paris to begin our coverage. martin, we are learning that belgian authorities are trying to track down another ten suspected terrorists in addition to this news about possible radicals working at the airport. >> reporter: right. this has got to be extremely troubling news now that it's coming out of belgium. of course, the country has been under high alert since last friday and now we're understanding why. belgian authorities are saying that they are on the lookout for what they believe are ten members of some kind of terrorist cell. they don't identify them in any way. they do say, however, that they are believed to be heavily armed and they may also have explosives. beyond that, there is not much more that belgian authorities are revealing. certainly, they say, the whereabouts of this cell is unknown. but it explains -- or goes a
4:03 pm
long way to explain why that country has been on such a high level of alert. they have relaxed somewhat in brussels. today, the schools were allowed to reopen and much of the transportation was allowed to reopen, at least when it came to the subway. there are two lines that remain closed and there are strong concerns around commercial areas, shopping areas. so that's what we know about that particular circumstance. now, the travel that you just talked about, possible infiltration, both in belgium and here in paris, this was part of the recent investigation. at least 50 potential workers that are at the airport in charles de gaulle were not provided access because they were worried about them being radicalized. unions have said that they have the same concerns. some bus drivers apparently refusing to acknowledge women and praying while on the job. all of this raises great concerns because anybody at an airport has access to the ramp
4:04 pm
and aircraft and that is an international airport where airplanes come from the u.s. as well as all other parts of the world. erin? >> martin savidge, thank you very much. there are fears tonight, the breaking news that radical islamists could be working at major airports around the world. some airport employees in brussels have been stripped of their security clearances. the reason, of course, would be the close ties they have to people who have left for syria. and the charles de gaulle, situation, at least 50 employees no longer have access to planes but they still have their jobs. pamela brown is "outfront." >> reporter: samy amimour was once a transportation bus driver in france until 2012. he was charged with collaborating with a terrorist enterprise after he allegedly
4:05 pm
tried to fly to yemen. it's one reason why it's been investigated whether radical islamists are working at major transportation hubs. >> security is only as good as people doing security. >> reporter: aircraft has been refused access for being too radicalized, according to a police official. in the wake of the paris attacks and downing of a russian jetliner from a bomb believed to be placed in the plane's cargo hold, french airport police conducted searches at several companies whose staff work at the airport. >> how do you vet thousands and thousands of people? because as we always say, they just have to get lucky once to close our aviation down and this is a real threat. >> reporter: in the u.s., an airport employee in minneapolis with access to commercial airplanes traveled to syria and died while fighting for isis. >> that was somebody who was radicalized and just as easily could have slipped a bomb on an airplane. >> reporter: today, homeland
4:06 pm
security head jey johnson says oversight has been ramped up in the last several months. >> in april, i put out a directive to tighten up airport security, specifically, those who work at airports. fewer access points, more continuous random screening of airport personnel and we're evaluating whether more is necessary right now. >> reporter: so despite the stepped-up measures, erin, most airport workers do not get screened when they show up to work every day. homeland security officials say it's nearly impossible to screen every airport worker as they come on a daily basis, especially at the big airports. but with the big insider threat being such a concern, they acknowledged having random checks could be a loophole. >> it is pretty scary. pamela brown, thank you very much. i want to go now to
4:07 pm
counterterrorism official phil mudd, mitch silver, and terrorism analyst paul cruickshank. a lot to talk about here. paul, in just 24 hours, paris and belgium banning some employees with tarmac and plane access because they say they could be muslim extremists or radicalized. now they are looking, all of a sudden they find r50, 60 people. how could they have missed this before? >> there are questions about this, erin, and the concern is that these people really want to bring down planes and insiders at the airport, people with access to the baggage, the tarmac, cleaning crews, those are the kind of people that can potentially get bombs on planes. and especially in the united states. there's just no systematic daily screening of airport workers in
4:08 pm
nearly every american airport. the only airports that do it are miami and orlando. that may well have to change. there are going to be a lot of calls for that to change every airport worker who has access to these sensitive workers should be screened. >> phil, there's that issue. then you have this issue. let's just take france. charles de gaulle, 50 employees, they are taking away their access to tarmac and planes. their access has been denied but, as far as we know, they still have their jobs and are still working at the airport. stunning, isn't it? >> it is. but you've got a couple problems here. first, you're talking about how you screen employees when you get these jobs at these facilities and how you screen them physically when they have access to the tarmac, for example. before you go down this path, erin, you've got to ask yourself a question or two. the first question is, if you screen someone when they get a job, are you going to screen them every 6 months, 12 months? you've got to wonder not only
4:09 pm
would they get through the door but what happens after a year or two on the job. if you choose to screen them, the second question i'd have is, how does the government decide what radicalization is. the pendalum has swung towards, we better do everything we can. if you go down for screening people, in a year, people are going to be saying, why is the government deciding which airport employees are watching internet videos. be careful what you wish for. >> be careful what you wish for, mitch, but terrorists, isis just successfully infiltrated an airport and brought down a commercial jet with 224 innocent people on board with a bomb. >> yeah. this is shocking that this suddenly seems to jump out of the news in belgium and france today. this isn't something new. we talked about this last night in 2010, the uk arrested a british airways i.d. information technology worker. his plan was to either crash all
4:10 pm
of the technology system, the computer systems or to get a bomb on a plane going from the uk to the u.s. so the fact that this is new to the french and belgians is surprising. phil brings up a good point. how do you actually detect that an airport worker is radicalized? because you can have radical thoughts. the problem is, when do you take radical actions and how do you know when somebody makes that pivot from radical ideas to actions? that's when you need to intercept them. >> which, of course, is the incredible difficulty, almost impossible to be able to do that. paul, salah abdeslam is still on the run. here we are, he's still on the run. >> that's right. he's still at large. he's got a lot of help from associates, those two associates
4:11 pm
from molenbeek that came to pick him up in paris the night of the attacks, drove him back to belgium and then another associate in brussels drove him somewhere else. they have that person now in custody. that could mean that they are closer to finding him. there's a big logical support network here. overall, this is the biggest scare we've ever seen in europe and the sheer number of people involved and supporting these perpetrators is really quite stunning, erin. >> it's stunning, phil. and now you see -- you've got obviously salah abdeslam's accomplices. they are looking for ten others, they say. you have 20,000 people now on a list in france. now the pendulum has swung to looking for anyone. there are a lot of people in there who may be bad apples.
4:12 pm
how are they going to know who? >> over the past couple of weeks, since the friday's attacks, the appature is open. i guarantee you some of them were talking. you require so many e-mail addresses and phone numbers that you ought to have a pretty good picture in ten days not only what the network is but the places that abdeslam would have been comfortable. the security officials would have looked at every one of those places. if he went back to belgium, which we've got to assume he did, he went someplace that he is already familiar with. as time goes on, i agree, it's surprising they haven't found him. why do we assume he hasn't gone home to syria? they must have canvassed every place he's ever been to. why do we assume he's still around? >> thank you all very much. "outfront" next, breaking news, vladimir putin escalating the fight after a russian fighter jet was shot from the
4:13 pm
sky. russian air missiles are now on their way to the region. also, we will hear tonight from an american who almost died trying to stop one of the paris attacks. new protests in chicago tonight. the victim's family's reaction tonight "outfront."

4:16 pm
breaking news, putin fighting back tonight. surface-to-air missiles are on their way to syria. this is as turkey releases audio that they gave russian warnings before they shot them down.
4:17 pm
hard to understand even to a native english speaker. a russian speaking out for the first time today says there was no warning whatsoever. >> translator: in reality, there were no warnings, not by the radio, not visually. >> important to notice, you saw that footage was from his back. he did not want his face to appear on camera. we're going to talk more about that. but all eyes on what vladimir putin will do next. matthew chance is in moscow. matthew, putin is not going to let this slide, is he? >> reporter: i can't imagine it. it's not in his character as the leader of russia to let things like this slide. remember, he's just watched one of his warplanes being shot out of the sky by a neighboring country in turkey as it was flying a mission against rebels inside syria. one of the pilots that parachuted out, ejected out, was gunned down on camera by rebels that turkey says it backs as he floated down to earth, which is
4:18 pm
in contravention of international law. you are not allowed to do that to unarmed pilots. another pilot was killed as a helicopter was fired on during a rescue operation. so he's absolutely furious and absolutely determined to make sure that this doesn't happen again he's announced a number of measures. they are going to be companied by fighters to make sure if they are approached, he's deploying the most sophisticated surface-to-air missiles that russia has, that the world has, as a matter of fact. they have a massive range of 400 miles. they are target 60 targets at the same time. so it's essentially going to give russia air superiority over the skies in syria. no one is going to be able to fly unless they get approval by
4:19 pm
the russians and that's a big escalation. >> a major escalation, especially with the united states as well and not just turkey. what about that pilot when he did speak. you would think he was a hero but only back to the cameras. >> i don't know why that was, actually, obviously some kind of security reason. they don't want the face of the pilot on television but they gave us his name and he's a captain, the navigator. he's been giving the hero of russia award. the highest military honor that russia has. he's a hero here, you're right. but security reasons, apparently, they didn't want to show his face. >> an interesting angle on that, too. matthew chance, thank you, live from moscow. now let's go to the pentagon. barbara starr is there. nobody would be able to operate aircraft in syria without russian approval. the united states is operating aircraft there. the coalition is. what's the reaction from the
4:20 pm
u.s.? >> well, i think right now it's one of caution. first and foremost, the u.s. is calling for both russia and turkey to de-escalate, to talk about this, make sure it doesn't happen again and not let tensions rise. certainly the u.s. watching that very carefully to see what is actually taking place, but officials -- my sources are telling me -- look at russia in two ways. they look at russia's capabilities and that system has a lot of capabilities but they also look at intentions. what are vladimir putin's intentions, how he intends to use that system. is it really to keep the u.s. and coalition from flying or is it to intimidate the turks to stay on their side of the border and not cause trouble in the minds of the military. certainly needs to be sorted out. it would be a massive change if the russians were to put some new limitations on the u.s. and the coalition but right now a
4:21 pm
bit of a wait and see attitude by the pentagon to determine how all of this may unfold. >> barbara, thank you. and now let's go to the former cia operative bob baer, intelligence and security analyst for us. as barbara was saying, these are incredibly sophisticated systems, 60 targets at once. they control the air space in syria. if they did that, if, it would be a massive escalation, something that you have been very concerned about. >> well, the escalation has already occurred. these missiles are not to be used against the rebels or anybody else. they are going to be targeted on turkish airplanes, possibly american, french and british. i mean, the only purpose for these weapons are to keep our planes out of the air or the turkish planes and not only that because of their range, they can shoot across the border that he puts our planes flying at risk. i don't know what putin is going to do and neither does washington. i mean, he is a very determined
4:22 pm
man. he looks at syria as an existential threat to his country. he's furious about this airplane having been shot down. he will not let this stand. >> it is pretty incredible. this is vladimir putin today, by the way, just visually also escalating at a plant -- not missile but defense plant, tanks, other armored vehicles like that. i mean, is this a potential sort of -- you've been talking about this as a world war iii but when you look at the plane going down, is this a moment? obama had to come immediately to the defense of turkey as a nato member and say turkey is in the right. had he to immediately do that. if something else happens, all of a sudden you are looking at the nato alliance being called in. >> well, exactly. what's to stop putin from a turkish plane straying too close to the border, even partially into syria, he shoots it down
4:23 pm
and turkey will evoke its nato membership to respond and what are we going to do? it's unthinkable at this point shooting down one of our airplanes but that system can do it. this is a huge escalation and we are moving closer to a major war in the middle east. >> quickly, before we go, when the second pilot was on the ground, they executed him, these rebels may have gotten their weapons from the united states. we don't know. but they are groups that may have been supported by the u.s. that's pretty scary. >> this is very scary. these are proxies. when our proxies start shooting at russians and killing them in the air, it's crossed a line with vladimir putin. >> and when you put it that way, an understandable one. thank you very much, bob baer. breaking news tonight in chicago, protests over the fatal
4:24 pm
shooting of a black teen and new doubts about whether the officer will be convicted of first-degree murder. plus, laquan's family reacts to the protests in chicago. that's "outfront," next. ... at t. rowe price... our disciplined approach remains. global markets may be uncertain... but you can feel confident in our investment experience around the world. call us or your advisor... t. rowe price. invest with confidence. could protect you from diabetes? what if one sit-up could prevent heart disease? one. wishful thinking, right? but there is one step you can take to help prevent another serious disease. pneumococcal pneumonia. if you are 50 or older, one dose of the prevnar 13® vaccine can help protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia, an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and may even put you in the hospital. even if you have already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13® may help provide additional protection. prevnar 13® is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections
4:25 pm

4:27 pm
4:28 pm
breaking news, protesters hitting the streets after the release of graphic video of a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. the officer now facing charges of first-degree murder and moments ago president obama weighing in on this. he says he's deeply disturbed by the video and grateful that the protests in his hometown are peaceful. miguel marquez is here to breakdown this video second by second. >> reporter: the video is 6:53. most of it police vehicles trying to find what they are told is a knife-wielding suspect stealing and threatening others. >> you know that this person has a knife. you know that he's been using that knife. now, as you're approaching there, the sense that this potentially could be imminent danger of loss of life or
4:29 pm
serious bodily injury -- >> reporter: someone points officers in the direction the 17-year-old went. 15 seconds later, police spot and surround mcdonald. >> at this point right here, you see an individual go from running to trotting to walking and then you pull the knife out, which is a provocative move. >> right there. >> what is this telling me as an officer, someone is potentially getting ready to make a move with this weapon. >> reporter: then, officer van dyke and his partner arrive, both immediately train their weapons on mcdonald commanding him to drop the knife. >> at this point, the officer should feel fear, tactically, what i was taught, this officer has the right to use deadly force on that individual. >> reporter: six seconds after jumping out of the car, van dyke on the force 14 years, fires.
4:30 pm
the first round appears to hit mcdonald's left shoulder. he spins and falls, still holding the knife. >> so because mcdonald does not drop the knife here -- >> they continue to shoot. i can guarantee you, almost 100% of all law enforcement, if the knife had fallen out of his hand, would have stopped shooting. >> reporter: van dyke fires 16 times. all bullets hit him. mcdonald still holds the knife. >> he's still moving and still has the knife and he gets shot again. >> reporter: another shot right there? >> correct. >> and then his hand goes forward with the knife still in it? >> right. >> reporter: van dyke's partner tells him to stop firing and clears the knife away. the incident is over but the controversy has just begun. now, the medical examiner says only two of the shots were -- hit mcdonald while he was standing. the other 14 were while he was on the ground. the prosecutor saying that none
4:31 pm
of the other officers saw mcdonald do anything threatening towards the officers, that he wasn't backing away, but he wasn't moving towards him. one of the officers on the scene said he didn't see the need for the use of force. erin? >> miguel, thank you. let's go straight now to our legal analyst, paul callan. a lot of people are saying here are two of the basic facts here. this happened in october 2014. so it happened almost more than a year ago, right, almost 16 months ago. 14 months ago. just getting the video now. so they say, why is that? was there an attempt to cover up an attempt to not charge this officer or is that a conspiracy theory? >> well, you know, i don't think it's a conspiracy theory. i think this is a shocking delay in this case. this is a relatively simple fact pattern. you see some cases where there is complicated forensic evidence and you need toxicology reports. all you have to do is look at this film and you see a person
4:32 pm
on the ground who is not a threat to the officer when he continues to fire into that helpless person. you don't really need a lot more than that. why would it take -- >> so you think it's possible, if a reporter had not filed a freedom of information request, do you think it's possible they may not have charged this officer with first-degree murder? >> i think it's possible that they may not have. but, you know, it would be a shocking thing to me if that were true. i understand there's been about 50 of these shootings in chicago and in the past but very few of them result in charges against police officers. >> mark, do you think they were trying to cover it up? we should note, obviously the video we have is from the dash cam of one of the police cars. so the police officers knew that there was video. however, the manager of a nearby burger king said police officers went into the stores and erased surveillance footage that would have shown the shooting. if this is true, that they did this to burger king, it adds more people saying, were they
4:33 pm
trying to hide it? >> yeah, i believe that they were trying to cover it up. i would like to see an investigation before i can reach a firm conclusion. i want to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. the problem is that law enforcement doesn't deserve that the city offered a settlement so quickly before a woman filed a lawsuit, they were trying to sweep this under the rug. i think there was a hope, if not an expectation, that the request would not have been made by a journalist and this would have gone away like so many deaths go away at the hands of law enforcement. so i'm troubled by it but also curious to know what they thought the end game would be. >> so let me ask you, the officer charged with first-degree murder, that's a big charge. first-degree murder is premeditation, right? six seconds is not premeditation to most people. did they overdue this? >> it's very, very rare to see a first-degree charge against a police officer. it doesn't require
4:34 pm
premeditation. what it requires is -- although that's popularly the phrase used. it requires a formed intent to kill. >> so you can form it in six seconds? >> yes. but i think it's likely that a jury could compromise on this and say, you know something, he was acting under the heat of passion, the heat of the moment, he made a mistake, fired too many times. it's second-degree murder. that's what we usually see in these cases. >> mark, the video is hard to watch. the officer's attorney says it does not tell the whole story and here's how he explained it. >> the video, no matter how clear it is, there are problems with video and most important i think is the fact that video, by its nature, is two-dimensional and disports images. what is clear on video sometimes is not always that clear. >> could that be the case, mark? that there is something here
4:35 pm
that -- >> no, there is nothing that could change my view. first of all, before i saw the video there were questions raised, the fact that five other officers didn't find it worthy of raising their weapons and shooting. once i saw the video, it erased all doubt. there's a long history of people saying lives don't matter when they are black and post rodney king, don't believe your lying eyes. believe what we tell you. not what you just saw but what we told you. constantly the bar keeps getting moved away when black victims are in question here or dead here. so, no, very little could happen. could there be more evidence, a thicker description, as it were? of course there could be. it doesn't negate the fact that 14 shots went into somebody's body after they hit the ground. 14 shots after they were clearly not a threat and that's ultimately the deciding factor here. >> thanks to both of you. "outfront" next, laquan's family reacting to the video.
4:36 pm
why they didn't want it to be released to the public. plus, the rings leader of the paris attacks behind at least four other deadly plots. you'll hear tonight from an american who almost died trying to stop him. the holidays bring many challenges to the feet. by day, they must stay warm. but by night, beautiful, smoother and ready to impress the other party animals. dr. scholl's dreamwalk express pedi but i think women would agree... watching football together is great... huddling with their man after the game is nice too. the thing is, about half of men over 40 have some degree of erectile dysfunction. well, viagra helps guys with ed get and keep an erection. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex.
4:37 pm
do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension. your blood pressure could drop to an unsafe level. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. ask your doctor about viagra. available in single packs.
4:38 pm
come happy birthday. i just had a heart attack...
4:39 pm
and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.
4:40 pm
breaking news, protests erupting on the streets of chicago at this hour. people expressing outrage after the brutal killing of a 17-year-old black teen shot 16 times by a white police officer. who was laquan mcdonald? ryan young is "outfront" with his story. >> reporter: when laquan mcdonald was shot and killed more than a year ago, his death went by almost unnoticed. but this dash cam was released and showed how he was gunned down by a police officer and it has propelled his case into the national spotlight. >> my nephew was shot in the back 16 times. >> 16 shots! 16 shots! >> reporter: "16 shots," the phrase that protesters were calling out. mcdonald lived a hard life growing up on the south side of
4:41 pm
chicago. in december 2000, at the age of 3, he was taken from his mother and placed in foster care. between 2000 and 2002, he moved three times before being sent back with his mother but his time in foster care was not over. in june of 2003, at the age of 6, he's taken from his mother again after state investigators find his mother's boyfriend abused him by leaving cuts, wealths and bruises on his body. he appears to stabilize as he's placed with a great-grandmother and she becomes his legal guardian but she dies when he's 15. he moved in with his uncle in may of 2014. five months later with pcp in his system and a knife in his hand, mcdonald was gunned down by officer van dyke.
4:42 pm
earlier this year, mcdonald's mother received a $5 million settlement from the city of chicago. and the release of this video showing mcdonald's death has led to first-degree murder charges for officer jason van dyke. you can see the small memorial left here. dozens of people have been coming here to pay their respects. some protesters started here before going downtown. this, of course, is the spot where the young man died. we've also seen the heavy police presence in this area all afternoon. erin? >> thank you very much. very tragic life. "outfront" now, we're joined by mike robbins, the attorney for laquan's family. i want to play for you what officer van dyke's lawyer had to say about this video. here he is. >> if you're watching it several times and, most importantly, getting the perspective of my client, that's when i came to the conclusion that his actions were justified.
4:43 pm
>> what do you say to that? >> i disagree. the video clearly shows laquan walking away and he was not threatening anybody and certainly didn't lunge at the police officer. this was originally presented as an act of self-defense but the officer had to shoot him to save his own life and that was a lie and the video is clearly an indication that this was an unnecessary shooting. >> do you think there was a cover-up, the reports that police tried to get burger king to erase its surveillance video even though they knew that it was recorded on dash cam? >> the burger king video is missing. i do not know if it was erased. the police accessed the video. the mows claim that the system, as far as they know, was working. police were looking at the video because they themselves were filmed inside the burger king. if they got there and turned the equipment on, what were they looking at for a couple of hours
4:44 pm
if there was no video when they got there? i don't know if they erased it. but to your question of a cover-up, i think that's absolutely the case here. because you have a spokesman from the police union putting out a false narrative about this act of self-defense and in fact he was shot walking away. he wasn't threatening anybody. >> so let me ask you about mcdonald's life. it was a trouble life. you heard our piece. it's sad to watch that. he was neglected by his mother. that's what the state found. taken out of her custody more than once, yet she received $5 million from the city after his death. what was his relationship with his mother? >> well, actually, she didn't receive it. the estate received it and laquan has a sibling and she's an heir and this money will be put away and provided for her through a structured settlement. actually, there was a petition filed about a year before laquan's death by his mother to reunify the family and they were
4:45 pm
making great progress in that direction. laquan was enrolled in an alternative school. many members offed it school staff, social staff and so on attended his funeral because they were so distressed over this and had such hope for him. >> quickly, before we go, his sibling, is his sibling of age? will she control the money or will the mother control the money? >> the money is not in -- it's in a structured settlement. it's not in their control at all. so it's in a structured settlement. >> all right. thank you very much, mike. i appreciate you taking the time. mike robbins, as i said, attorney for the family. up next, the mastermind of the paris attack, a hero shot him. we have that story. he speaks out next. i take pictures of sunrises,

this is black friday.zy. oh my god. does anybody want to be part of this? nooooo. well, chevy has a better way, with black friday deals all month long. that's a great idea. what if you could get up to twenty percent cash back when you bought it? bam. twenty percent back? that's awesome. it's black friday. find your tag and get cash back for 20% of the msrp on select 2015 vehicles in stock. that's over eighty-four hundred dollars on this chevy camaro. cool, time to go shopping. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung,h. it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke.
4:48 pm
you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

4:52 pm
but as a survivor spreading the message of hope. >> frightening, we just took that train last week and brings home impossible to imagine what happened to them. does moogalian and the other americans that rushed to stop the attack, they didn't know each other. does he now stay in touch with them? >> reporter: he does, yeah, a very close bond he says especially with spencer stone which he credits with saving his life by putting his finger on the jugular of him. they talked great deal in the aftermath of the tragedy that p ha happened then and think about what is going on now. >> incredibly moving. thank you for sharing that with us. next, two very lucky turkeys on this thanksgiving eve, plus why is this man singing about sweet potato pie? ♪ ♪ ♪ heaven all day, but i hope when i get to heaven, they have

4:54 pm
my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots.
4:55 pm
plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. if you have high blood pressure many cold medicines may raise your blood pressure. that's why there's coricidin® hbp. it relieves cold symptoms without raising blood pressure. so look for powerful cold medicine with a heart. coricidin® hbp.
