>> john, tell us a little about it. this was a historic mission, what exactly was the mission? >> reporter: hugely historic, what nasa had done, remember, they decided they didn't have the money to continue flying space shuttles with crews and cargos to the international space station and to build a big new rocket and spacecraft to take humans to an asteroid or mars. nasa said we'll let commercial companies do the low earth orbit stuff. spacex is the first company ready take that next step, there are several vying to do this. they are the first ready to start carrying cargo, this is an unmanned vehicle, to the international space station, and eventually to take u.s. astronauts. remember, right now the russians are the only game in town. our astronauts for the next three or four years, at least, will be flying on russian spacecraft to the international space station, so hugely
important they get these flights right and they start flying cargo, and then eventually humans to the space station or for the foreseeable future the u.s. is relying on russia. >> they will try again on the 22nd? >> i believe the 22nd i think:0k at 3:44 a.m., eastern time. early wake up call again. >> oh, yes, you will be in the hot seat again. john zarella, nice to see you, thank you. >> sure. also this morning, a blind chinese human rights activist who hid out at the u.s. embassy may be on his way to the u.s. chen guangcheng and his wife and family are waiting to escape to the u.s. after a lot of diplomatic back and forth, china agreed to let him leave the country. he has been invited to study at new york university. the hunt for a man accused

we may be getting a clear picture what happened the night george zimmerman shot trayvon martin. new details were released this week, 183 pages of evidence. the details leave us with lots of new questions. >> reporter: the first bit of ambiguous evidence, these pictures, george zimmerman who says he killed trayvon martin in self-defense, told investigators trayvon attacked him and slammed his head in the concrete. if that's true, are these wounds consistent with a head hitting pavement? documents show zimmerman had abrasions to his forehead,
bleeding and tenderness in his nose and small laceration to the back of his head. if it was so bad, why didn't zimmerman go to the hospital? he declined to be transported to the hospital even after he told officers his head hurt and that he felt light-headed. and there's this. if there was a prolonged struggle, would zimmerman's dna be on trayvon martin's hands? an analysis of scrapings from under the teenager's finger nails did not contain any of zimmerman's dna. but the autopsy done on martin does show a cut, a one quarter by one eighth inch small abrasion on the left fourth finger, an indication he might have been punching zimmerman. the first neighbor to encounter zimmerman after the shooting found him winded. >> he was having a hard time cause he -- looked like he had gotten his butt whooped, so he was a little bit more of a, you know, not shock but like just getting up type of thing. >> there is also this,
unanswered question. as the two men fought, who was it neighbors heard yelling for help? in a 911 call, a sergeant counted a man yelling "help or help me" 14 times in 38 seconds. >> listen to the 911 call you can hear someone yelling in the background. >> help! >> you think he's yelling help? the discovery documents show competing versions of the events. of those who say they heard the struggle, some told police they thought they heard a young boy screaming for help. one witness, witness 6 as he's called in the documents, thought it was the voice of a grown man. >> there was a black male with a black hoodie on top of either a white guy or now i found out that i found out that he was a hispanic guy with a red sweatshirt on the ground. >> the fbi audio analysis was inconclusive, they couldn't determine whose voice it was
during the extreme emotional state of the person yelling but overlapping voices. the fbi said there was an insufficient voice quality on the recording. and what about that racial slur zimmerman a white hispanic, allegedly used when describing trayvon? >> the back entrance. >> fbi analysis released thursday said they could not definitively identify the word zimmerman used due to weak signal level and poor recording quality. that word is key to rate shall discrimination argument and legal experts say without definitive evidence he used a slur the chances zimmerman might be charged with a federal hate crime diminish. an interview also part of the discovery with one of the zimmerman's former coworkers says something else. the man said zimmerman is a racist and bully. >> i was portrayed like the i don't know if you ever watched comedy, this guy is called ahmed
the terrorist? >> no. >> okay, so a little guy, has a weird voice and -- that was me in the story so the story turned my accent to no! i kill you! >> okay. >> he kept going and going. >> and finally the question of drugs in trayvon martin's system. in his 911 call, just before the shooting, zimmerman indicated the teenager looked like he was on drugs on something. even though we now know trayvon's blooded had thc in it, that may not mean he was high. one tox i could gist said it can linger for diays. dr. drew says marijuana doesn't make someone more aggressive. with the new details released this week you think we would be closer to learning the truth. the one thing we know for sure a
single gun shot fired straight into the chest of trayvon martin killed him. >> and george zimmerman is charged with second degree murder, he pled not guilty claims it was self-defense. he is currently out on bond. texting while walking, becoming a huge problem in some cities. look at this guy walking right into a bear because he is so focused. he is so focused on his phone, is it time to crack down on distracted walkers? you'll get your chance to weigh in. plus, a scientist tries to capture a 300 pound gator, the wild reptile wasn't going without a fight. meineke's personal pricing on brakes.

welcome back. going outside the u.s. to build a family, some would-be parentsare willing to put up with the hassle and high cost for a child to call their own. in 2010, 53,000 children were adopted. for international adoptions that was 10,000 last year. it has fallen since 2004. the difference in cost can be substantial. these are the high end numbers, more than $40,000 for domestic adoptions. more than $64,000 for international adoptions. but for some going outside america's borders makes more
sense. theona hall adopted two children, one from china and another country. why did you go outside the u.s. to adopt? >> that was simple, i had a friend who adopted three children from china, i know they had a proven process. after i got a divorce i knew i wanted a family she steered me in that direction. it was nothing more than that. before you adopted graham you got far in the adoption process from what i understand for another little boy in nepal, only to have him yanked away from you but you saw he was going to be yours, correct? >> that is absolutely correct. i blame the agency for that, actually. they gave me a picture of a little boy and said this is your son and matched me to him and quite candidly the day after the check cleared they said he might not be yours because they changed the government, so we're going to hang tight. i said how do we advocate for this child?
i was devastated i found out they had given the child my picture and told him he had a mommy and he was going to school, one of the parents said he was going to school and then game on, i had to take it on myself. i went to nepal to fight for that child. >> you had spent money, you didn't only invest emotionally but financially as well. >> we had no concept of the living conditions, it was awful. medical care, a child who ended up passing away i got him a nurse to take care of him before he did. furnished the whole orphanabge, it was a donation of goods, but stocked kitchens with food. something you just don't believe until you see it. >> did you ever find out what happened to him? >> i fought for him. i fought for him all the way through the process. as a matter of fact, he has a family in italy and the mother and i are in touch.
>> that is great news. >> i have a picture of him getting off the plane in milan, italy, where his ears are touching behind his head he's smiling so hard. >> that is a wonderful end. between nepal and china which gave you a harder time in terms of trying to adopt? china was smooth sailing, the agency is in business 20 years, except for the wait time, about the government, not the agency. nepal, my friends will tell you china was an adoption, nepal was a rescue, it was you didn't know what would happen until the last minute. it's a six year story i don't think i could tell it to you in this segment. incredible pain, incredible pain we went through. >> you mentioned six years, how long did each adoption take for you and how much did each cost you? >> the one, china ended up between five and six years, nepal, 5 1/2 years before it was
done. as far as cost they are regulated i made sure we stuck to the law as far as what was on the adoption itself. this is outside expenses, lawyers had to manage agencies, in nepal to manage the government, to answer your question, dchina was simple, $23,000, nepal, i stopped counting at 80. you see problems with international adoptions, one of the stories has to do with this case out of guatemala, a woman says her child was abducted in 2006 and sold to an international adoption agency and this unknowing family in missouri adopted this child, this little girl and now there is an international fight to get her back in guatemala. do you -- guatemala is one of those countries that has cut off some international adoptions to the u.s. do you see that kind of thing happening, is that something
that families in the u.s. should worry about? >> the way i look at it the process is so flawed, so broken it's hard to validate that information, that is the real challenge. marry that with the fact this is the land of opportunity these children and international adoptions can get a u.s. citizenship have won the adoption lottery. you don't know who to trust. desperate people in these countries will do desperate things. >> in terms of an agency, what kind of i guess advice do you have for anybody, how do you know what sort of agency to use? >> i tell you what, that is the biggest challenge i had. many, many agencies were flawed. so my advice to them is do your due diligence and recognize at the end of the day they do the paperwork you have to fight for yourself. there is two reasons why graham finally came home to me. my friend kim and fred had an international group of waiting
families, that we connect and got put together a plan, we all went after our own embassies and say you have to do something in nepal. the only embassy that didn't rise to the occasion was our own. richard burr of north carolina, senator richard burr, a special place in heaven, he got my son out. >> how are graham and audrey? >> fabulous. they bonded together, it's just a wonderful ending to a horrible tragic story. >> we have an adorable picture of them with the two dogs i see. they holook like they are bondi. they get along? >> that picture is number 997 out of 1000, that is a moment in time. >> listen, they are adorable and fiona you've done a wonderful thing, my hat off to you. fiona hill, thank you very much. >> thank you so much, have a
great day. >> two families, one of them here, one of them in guatemala, both laying claim to the same little girl, whatever the outcome, one family will be torn apart forever, that story when we continue our focus on adoption at 7:15 eastern time this morning. shipwrecked on a remote island, three stranded fishermen survived on seaweed and clams for ten days. wait until you find out who came to their rescue. look at the car! my dad's gonna kill me dude...

pipe from scotland, coin fr argentina, treasures that belonged to prisoners so far from home. what have you learned about the people, anything that surprised you? >> absolutely. the amount of ingenuity we're seeing in the artifacts, their will to survive. the leaves of society they develop within their environment. this site is the little people, the men who fought on the front lines the men whose name didn't get recorded by history. that is what we're doing is telling their story. >> that was an incredible story. so i'm just curious how rare is it to find a civil war site that hasn't been looted? >> almost impossible. when it comes to american history, americans love history, one of the things that is popular is civil war history. when there is a site, a lot of people get metal detectors, scour the site and want to find artifacts. many places are combed through. >> is it a target? >> i think it might be they are
