again. a fox news alert. authorities have just arrested and charged a suspect in the cold-blooded killing of a texas sheriff's deputy. deputy darren goforth was gunned down friday night while pumping gasoline at a service station. authorities say that is when the suspect walked up behind him and began shooting. welcome to america's news headquarters. i'm gregg jarrett. >> i'm molly line. a news conference just wrapping up moments ago announcing the arrest of shannon j. miles. the sheriff calling deputy goforth's murder senseless. will carr joins us from our west coast news room with the latest. >> reporter: the sheriff has also said this is the most cowardly act that he has seen in
45 years as a member of law enforcement. we know that shannon miles was a person of interest throughout the course of the day. that changed just within the last hour or two when he was charged with capital murder. authorities say that he walked up behind harris county deputy darren goforth last night right after goforth had finished fueling his car with gas. without warning, opened fire, shooting him in the head, in the back. goforth fell on the ground and authorities say miles continued to hover over him and continued firing. goforth ended up dying at the scene. authorities called it an assassination, execution-style murder. one of the hardest parts for authorities in that area is they say they still don't know what his motive was. >> the assumption is he was a target because he wore a uniform. at this moment we found no other motive or indication that it was anything other than that. >> reporter: the sheriff said earlier today he's quite aware
of the movement, black lives matter. he says that in this case, cop lives matter, that all lives matter. in the press conference just a couple minutes ago, we also learned that based on a ballistic test, they matched the murder weapon, a large hand gun that they evidently found in miles' possession to the crime scene. we also have learned that deputy goforth is the 23rd member of law enforcement to be shot and killed this year here in 2015. the sheriff earlier saying this murder has just absolutely rocked his sheriff's office. it's caused him to lose faith in humanity. molly. >> 23 law enforcement officers killed this year. a very sad statistic. thank you for bringing up the story. from america's election headquarters, gop frontrunner donald trump taking his campaign down south. the presidential hopeful speaking to the national federation of republican
assemblies in nashville. trump bluntly telling the federation why they should support him as the republican candidate. blunt, donald trump? i'm stunned. molly henneberg live from washington, hey, molly. you know, trump was critical today of elected republican leaders in washington. so what's new? but what did he say? >> reporter: hi, greg. donald trump told the crowd in tennessee that he's a republican. he's a conservative. but contends that too often republican leaders get to washington and lose their conservative principles. >> they walk into these magnificent buildings with those incredible vaulted ceilings and they go oh. i made it, darling. i made it. i vote for you. i vote for you. i vote for obamacare extensions. i'll do whatever you want me to do. i'm in washington. it's amazing. isn't it amazing? don't you agree? it won't happen to me.
i promise. and if it does, you're going to let me know about it. but it won't, i promise. >> reporter: fox news has confirmed that three fundraising consultants have left jeb bush's presidential campaign. according to politico, the three left, quote, amid internal conflicts. bush's campaign tells fox that jeb has the, quote, widest and deepest fundraising operation of any candidate in the field. greg. is -- is this a campaign or standup comedy? whatever it is, maybe it's both, but it's working. look at the poll numbers. let's switch to the dems. the party leaders getting an earful from democratic presidential candidates this week. what did they have to say? >> reporter: we're talking about what happened to the democratic national committee summer meeting in minneapolis this past week. one democratic presidential candidate, former maryland governor martin o'malley slammed the democratic establishment for
scheduling only four debates before the primary elections begin next year. >> this sort of rigged process has never been attempted before. where did it come from? to what end? for what purpose? what national or party interest does this decree serve? how does this help us tell the story of the last eight years of democratic progress? >> reporter: one big democrat who did not attend the dnc meeting, vice president joe biden, who also is considering a run for the presidency. greg. >> molly line, thanks very much. molly henneberg. sorry. i'm sitting next to molly line. >> i'm right here. yes. thank you, greg. >> got a few mollyies. turkey is taking a much more active role in the fight against terror. the country carrying out its first air strikes as part of the u.s.-led coalition targeting isis. the pentagon commending turkey for its participation in the international campaign to defeat the terrorist group.
turkey's deeper involvement comes after a suicide bombing in july that killed 33 people in a turkish border city near syria. the separate attack on turkish troops guarding the border left one soldier dead. both attacks are blamed on isis. european countries are increasing security measures now on trains following that attempted terrorist attack. france's interior minister says there will now be more i.d. checks and baggage checks carried out everywhere. it is necessary. his words. he also called for better coordination among intelligence and security agencies across europe's border-free travel zone. the suspect in last week's attempted attack was on the radar of european surveillance, but he bought his ticket in cash, showed no identification. three americans and a britain stopped the attack. a fox extreme weather alert. the remnants of erika gaining strength again as it moves toward florida and southeastern
gulf of mexico. that tropical storm erika has killed at least 20 people in the caribbean and dozens remain missing. janis dean in the fox extreme weather center with the latest. >> yeah. we're watching this very carefully because the national hurricane center around 9:30 this morning said we're done with erika. just an area of low pressure now. buff we're watching the remnants of erika again, now it has a 40% chance of regenerating into maybe a depression or another tropical storm in the next five days. you can see a ton of moisture associated with this. so we're not done with the threat of what's left of erika as we head through the next couple of days. for cuba, as well as parts of the gulf of mexico and florida, watching this very carefully as we think yeah, some of these computer models are saying this could regenerate and it will be called erika again. so we will monitor it certainly as we head through the workweek.
a ton of moisture associated with this. you remember parts of florida over the last several weeks saw record amounts of rain and this is certainly going to bring a soaking amount of rain over the next couple of days easily three to six inches, flash flood watches and warnings are posted for much of south florida and central florida. also want to point your attention to something very incredible. major hurricanes. three of them, triplets in the pacific right now. we're watching hurricane ignacio. that is a category 4 storm. look at that storm. i mean, very strong and continues to strengthen over the next several hours and several days we'll be watching it as we think it will move north of hawaii. but still the potential for a lot of heavy rain and gusty winds. there is the current track as we go through time and again, watching hawaii, the hawaiian islands very carefully. the big island under a tropical storm watch right now. back to you, molly. >> all right. thank you so much.
concerning to see that storm strengthening after we heard it was on its way out. thank you so much for the update. >> it's so reminiscent every time we see those computer models of what happened ten years ago, hurricane katrina carving that devastating path of destruction through new orleans. of course, the gulf of mexico. former president bill clinton attending a city celebration of neighborhoods of recovery. just one of the many events being held across the state to honor those who died and to thank those who came to rebuild. of course, it was ten years ago today katrina made landfall as a category 3 initially, then a 5. killing at least 1800 people and causing more than $150 billion in damage. casey stegall has more on how residents are commemorating the progress they've made. >> reporter: by this time ten years ago, there were numerous
reports of levy breaches and failures across the city, water began inundating neighborhoods around new orleans. and the world watched on live television as victims were being rescued off of their home roof tops. many climbing up there because the waters were rising so quickly. it's estimated some 1800 people across the gulf coast did not survive. this morning a somber ceremony here in the crescent city. at the hurricane katrina memorial on canal street, a wreath was put down in honor of the victims. but on this day. many choosing to look forward, how the city has come back stronger than ever. at the famed antoine's restaurant, for example, which will celebrate its 175th anniversary this year. business has never been better. the ceo paid all of his staff, even though they did not reopen the restaurant until four months following the storm. >> revenue is now surpassed prekatrina levels and now for
not only -- not only for antoine's, but i'm sure a big part of the city. i don't think new orleans ever gave up for a second. we certainly didn't. so we just did what every other community does when disaster strikes. we reinvested in our community because that's what's important to us. >> reporter: a lot clearly changed in ten years. tourism numbers are um. more restaurants are in the city than pre-katrina. the folks who live here that we talked to say they would rather keep looking forward and not look back. greg? >> casey stegall, thanks very much. we often think so much about new orleans. but let's not forget mississippi, parts of alabama, the florida panhandle. they all suffered losses there, both loss of life and enormous property damage. people lost their lives and livelihoods. >> yeah. their homes, 5,000 people displayed back then. many of those folks were not
able to return and come back to their homes. still today, therer people just getting back to their homes that are just beginning to rebuild in the area where they were before and return to their neighborhood. >> if you look at some of the lower ward pictures before and after and now, not all of it has been rebuilt. there is still a lot that is condemned, untouched, needs to be fixed. they've got a long way to go still. >> yeah. they do. such resiliency and they have come so far as well. there are some highlights along the way. so as we mark the ten years since the day since hurricane katrina slammed into the gulf coast, we look at the very safe recovery of new orleans. and an egyptian court sending three al-jazeera journalists to prison. that's right. journalists. reaction from one of them. plus this. >> police in thailand now arresting a suspect in that deadly attack in a shrine in
grants on a highway. 71 people, including women and children, were found dead inside a truck in neighboring austere i can't. the victims appear to have been syrian refugees. police in thailand arresting a suspect at a shrine in bangkok. authorities say the 28-year-old form national is accused of leaving a bag at the site of the blast. the explosion killing 20 people, including 14 foreigners. >> the fact is there was never any evidence to confirm these charges. every single independent observer recognized that and said as much. so the only conclusion that we can possibly come to is that this verdict was politically motivated. >> that is deported australian journalist peter greece. he was sentenced and two colleagues were sentenced to three years for operating without a press license and
broadcasting material harmful to egypt. new orleans is remembering katrina, ten years after the hurricane slammed into the gulf coast states. the city using today's milestone to showcase to the world how far it has come since the hurricane left it in ruins. a commemoration of survival and revival. joining us how is president and ceo of the urban league. thank you for joining us. you are also the mayor of new orleans from 1994 to 2002. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> this is an incredible day, a chance to look back. you were there in the days and weeks and years following this storm and you got a chance to see the struggle and also the challenges. what's been accomplished and there is still so many challenges. what's left to be done? >> it's half time and that means that over the last ten years after great difficulty, lots of homes have been rebuilt. there have been new schools, public infrastructure has been
rebuilt. and many neighborhoods have come quite a long way, some 85 or so% of the population may have returned. however, there is still a tremendous amount of work yet to be done. some neighborhoods have lagged far behind. on some issues of comparison and equity, the city has a long way to go. so i like the word commemoration and continuation. my encouragement to this beautiful me loved city that is a city of my birth and the city that i led is for there to be a continuation, to make sure that the rebuilding effort is completed in the next five to ten to maybe even 15 years. >> i do want to talk about it, you brought it up, the shelter. homes are so important to families. they really are the building block o of where people are comfortable and so many people were displayed. where does that stand now? we all remember those pictures where about 80% of the city was
under water and now many people have returned. but there are still those that are just beginning to get back into their neighborhoods. >> most reputable estimates suggest that there is a need for another 30 to 35,000 quality housing units in the city. there is an opportunity and a need for there to be an effort to build it. rents have increased. mortgages have increased. the cost of flood insurance has increased. that's because the housing market in new orleans is very tight and circumstances have changed. the urban league of greater new orleans, our affiliate here, released a report this week, the state of black new orleans, which documents a number of these challenges. but most importantly, casts an eye on the future, what the city continues to need to do. this was a tragedy of untold proportions. not only new orleans, but southeastern louisiana, the gulf coast and mississippi, parts of alabama and then followed by
hurricane rita, southwestern louisiana. devastation far. devastation wide. people displayed. i'm proud of the perseverance of the people, the strength of the people who worked very hard to rebuild. but hopeful and encouraging that the work that is yet to be done is gonna to be a top priority and no one is going to believe that at year ten, it's time to spike the football or cause for celebration because this work is yet finished. >> you know, rebuilding a community is about so much more than just giving people places to live. it's about jobs, the economy, the education and you brought it up, some of the poorer minority communities were among the most devastated. people that had nothing lost everything. and then it's tough to get back from that. so what's being done on that front, on the jobs fronts, on the education front? >> there has been a lot of efforts in the schools. i think there are good results, but i think mixed results
because there is a lot more work yet to be done. i think that city leaders and community activists and business leaders, i think they have the resolve to do the work that's yet to be done. but i think -- i was in the lower 9th ward. i was in parts of the upper 9th ward, these neighborhoods still have a long way to go. what the city needs to do is focus on that. the rebuilding of the economy of this region is going to require the continued repopulation of the city. many people were in houston, dallas, atlanta, baton rouge, still want to return. they need a quality home to return to and a good job to return to. so the people of color in southeastern louisiana and certainly in new orleans still remain behind when it comes to income, when it comes to wealth and homeownership. that's the work that has to be done going forward.
>> you can talk a little bit, new orleans is such a special place. what about the spirit of the people now, ten years later, everyone looking back, reflecting on what's been lost, how far the communities has come. how are the people doing? what's the spirit? >> i have a sense of a number of things. some people remain very traumatized by what happened ten years ago. and this tenth year commemoration has been difficult for them. others have, if you will, the perseverance, the strength, the resolve to go forward. but this has been a long road for this community and rebuilding the spirit of this community and the spirit of the community is what has brought new orleans, southeastern louisiana, southern mississippi to where it is today. but there is still many, many people who are hurting, who are still having a difficult time confronting the fact that they may have lost a family member,
lost their home, lost their job, and haven't been able to fully recover. none the less, this city is unique culture. incredible history. this city's contribution to the nation and the world is why rebuilding it has been important and why continuing to rebuild it is essential. >> president and ceo of the urban league and also a former mayor there of that great city, we thank you for joining us here today. >> thank you. >> thank you. hundreds of parents are signing up for a new school voucher program, but the aclu is looking to get rid of it, saying it is unconstitutional. we'll talk about it. plus, growing concerns about criminals infecting computers. and then charging ransom to unlock them. how the f.b.i. is handling it.
man is hyped bars facing a capital murder charge. deputies releasing a new photo of the suspect after posting in error, the photo of a different man during their news conference in the last hour, which we aired. they have changed or charged this man, 38-year-old shannon j. miles. harris county sheriff says that miles has a previous record, including charges of resisting arrest, trespassing, the list goes on and on. investigators say last night he shot and killed deputy darren goforth as he filled his patrol car with gasoline at a service station just outside houston. here is what the sheriff had to say at the news conference. >> with encouragement, cooperation and prayers behind us, we have identified the suspect responsible for the senseless and cowardly act. we continue to evaluate the mountain of evidence collected by investigators investigators e
actively interviewing witnesses that may have additional knowledge of the incident. i'm proud of the men and women that worked swiftly to apprehend the responsible person who posed a significant threat to both the law enforcement and community at large. our deputies returned to the streets tonight to hold a delicate peace that was shattered last evening. >> investigators are still looking for a motive in this case. the sheriff says it may be as simple as deputy goforth was wearing a uniform. a major cyber security warning about so-called ransomware. hackers use malicious software to infect computer systems and then they charge the victims a ransom to unlock them. bryan llenas is live in our new york city news room with this. >> reporter: hi. the f.b.i. warning cyber attacks are on the rise. ransom ware is a malware they get by clicking on infected e-mail, web site, or attachment.
once it infects, it encrypts all of your files, locking you out. attackers hold your data hostage until you pay a ransom. typically between 200 and $10,000. most criminals demand payment in bitcoin, a type of anonymous, easy to use online currency. occurrence you pay the ransom, most get their files back. ransomware has been around for years, but the latest strain of the virus called cryptowall is wreaking unprecedented havoc. between last april and june this year, the f.b.i. has received 1,000 criminal complaints costing individuals and u.s. businesses over $18 million in losses. >> we're making a lot of progress. but like many other types of crimes, we're not there yet. it's still a problem and as i mentioned, we cleared up one and another shows up on the market. >> reporter: even police departments nationwide are getting hit and paying up. this year a small town outside chicago paid $500 ransom to a
hacker who encrypt the filessor one of their computers and their back ups. >> if you're clever enough, you can really manipulate that from identity theft perspective and disrupt not only the local governments, but actually get into the personal finances, personal banking or financial accounts of individuals and just think of the potential exposure and what could happen then. >> reporter: the f.b.i. says there are ways to protect yourself. always use antivirus software and a firewall and enable pop-up blockers. be skeptical of unrecognizable e-mails or attachments and back up your files and data. experts say cyber attackers are difficult to track and arrest. in a report this month, ibm warns this is the beginning of a long battle for all of us against a growing and evolving threat. molly? >> it's incredible. no one is safe, not even the average everyday person. they don't just go after governments or businesses. thank you so much for that report. >> no problem. the aclu wants to put an end
to the state's new school voucher program. that program available to any family with kids attending public schools. those who qualify receive up to $5,000. over 25,000 parents applied in the last few months. but the aclu is jumping in, filing a legal challenge against the program. organization saying it violates a state amendment by using public money for religious institutions. our legal panel now joins us. both defense attorneys. good to see you both. david, 37 states have these so-called blame operations, saying you can't use taxpayer money for religious purposes. nevada is one, colorado is another. the list goes on and on. so this voucher program violate the constitution? >> i think it's pretty clear on space that it does violate the constitution. you can not use state funds to fund for a secular purpose for a religious school. you just can't do it. it's on the face against the.
they have one of these provisions, can't spend taxpayer money on religious institutions and they struck it down as a violation of the constitution. is this going to go the same way? >> well, as you know, every state is different. but when you look at the federal case that dealt with this same issue, it was deemed constitutional and i feel in this particular case, they're not saying okay, to all the religious schools, we're going to get funding so you can accept students, or they're not targeting students who only want to go to religious schools. the main purpose of this law is to allow students to have a better education. and if that student or their parent decide we're going to send them to a religious school, it's not necessarily funding the school. it's helping the student. >> keisha brings up a good point. u.s. supreme court addressed voucher programs and the famous cleveland school voucher case. seems like yesterday, but it was actually in 2002. i looked at it again today.
the supreme court said, look. three things. if there is a valid secular purpose that is to help poor children who are trapped in these failing schools, then it doesn't violate the first amendment. second of all, if it's religiously neutral, that is they have an alternative they can enroll in other schools, and third, there are nonsectarian schools that are available as well. so how is this case going to end up in the supreme court? >> because we have the nevada constitution here and it's clearly a violation of the nevada constitution. >> the supreme court overruled -- >> you make a great argument. she's a great lawyer. but the bottom line is it doesn't matter if, yeah, the main purpose is education and a little bit will go toward religious, it doesn't matter. if a dime goes towards religious -- a religious school or a secular education -- >> the supreme court seemed to say nickels and dimes, it's
okay. just as long as predominantly the majority of the taxpayer money isn't being spent on religious purposes. >> and as the supreme court case stated, this is not the only option. there are other alternatives. not every student is going to go to a religious school. >> right. >> so that makes a big point. i think that again, nevada has its own laws, but the supreme court case will have rulings or precedence. >> but they weren't ruling on the nevada law. that's the bottom line. they were not ruling on the nevada constitution of the that's why we have the state courts and the -- >> don't the same principles apply? >> the same principles may apply, but they were not ruling on this particular constitution that they have in nevada. >> if it goes up to the supreme court, i feel they're going to rule in the same way because it's the same issue. >> the supreme court would be hard pressed to reverse themselves, wouldn't they? and they don't even like to distinguish their own cases. >> but on the face of it, it's clearly a violation. every state has their own constitution and it could go
over and beyond the u.s. constitution and clearly on this particular case, it's in violation. it's a violation on the face no matter how good the program may be. >> i think it's a creative argument the state of nevada is make. well, technically the money isn't being spent by us, the state. but rather it's being spent by the parents and thus, we're not violating the constitution. >> greg, if you think of it this way, whenever the government funds any family or any program, they don't have control over where that money goes after they give it to someone. so if someone is on welfare and they use that money to donate something to their church -- >> aren't -- if the purpose was to go to education if they're spending it on something else, that's not right. >> right. but what i'm saying, there is no way for the deposit to control where that money goes once they give it to the person. >> okay. got to go. thanks very much. david. molly? >> a showdown may be heating up between texas and mexico and it's all over immigration.
. . bill's got a very tough 13lie here...... looks like we have some sort of sea monster in the water hazard here. i believe that's a "kraken", bruce. it looks like he's going to go with a nine iron. that may not be enough club... well he's definitely going to lose a stroke on this hole. if you're a golf commentator, you whisper. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do.
immigration, it has become a hot topic for republican candidates running for president. also the source of a new lawsuit in texas. that lawsuit was filed on behalf of six u.s. citizen children and their undocumented parents claiming that some counties in texas are denying birth certificates to those children. mexico's also weighing in on the matter with a warning. we're joined now by susan estridge, professor of law, political science at the university of southern california. campaign manager for michael dukakis in '88, his run for the presidency. she's a fox news contributor.
we could go on and on. but that would soak up all 4 1/2 minutes of our segment. isn't texas blatantly violating the 14th amendment? >> i think so. i mean, when i looked at this law and thought to myself, first of all, this is in the constitution. okay? it's not as if a state has any jurisdiction that i know of over the rules about federal u.s. citizenship. so there is a question whether the state has any business in this area. and then you get to the issue of why do these folks have to show two forms of i.d. and no one else does? and how are you going to enforce the law? are you going to ask every hispanic parent who comes in about to give birth to show two forms of i.d. or they don't get a birth certificate? it's got lots of flaws. >> a lot of this is happening now because donald trump, you
know, has said he thinks that kids born by undocumented parents ought to be tossed out and he says it hasn't been tested by the supreme court. he's completely being -- he's either uninformed or not being honest. because it was tested, famously by the supreme court in the case of u.s. versus wong and we'll put up the holding on the screen. every person born in the united states becomes at once a citizen of the united states. isn't trump wrong? >> yes. i mean, that's the way the constitution has been understood for a long time. it's perfectly legitimate if people want to say, look, i think we need a constitutional amendment. i don't agree. it's not easy to do. it will take some years. it's unlikely to pass. but at least let's be honest here. i mean, it's in the constitution. you can't deny, no state can deny those children citizenship without running afoul of the
constitution. and the constitution is hard to change. >> right. especially when the supreme court says it is what it is and we've decided it. >> it is what it is. >> all right. >> what else could it be? >> exactly. donald trump. okay. i want to go to what you wrote about donald trump on trump claims hispanics love him. he keeps saying that over and over. a vast majority do not love him and you point out in your recent column six in ten women don't like donald trump. then you pose a provocative question. how does a guy like trump, who isn't liked by a majority of the electorate, stand a series chance of being the republican nominee? what's the answer? >> because of the way the two parties, both of them, run their nominating process. and the goal of the nominating process is not at least until the very end, is not necessarily to pick the most electable candidate or to pick the candidate who will appeal to general election voters.
and the republican primary caucus electorate for instance, is overwhelmingly white and male. that isn't true of the general electorate, who is overwhelmingly female and latinos. so the problems with the republicans is that not that trump could win the general election, could i don't think he could. but if he threads his needle really well, okay, and the field is so large that 28, 29% is enough to win, then trump could hang in there for some time as the front runner. >> he only needs a minority of the minority. >> yeah. >> it makes sense. how do you assess trump -- is it the silly season right now and people aren't serious about evaluating candidates and that with trump, the allure and the appeal right now is more
attitude than substance? >> oh, i think it's substance. i mean, i wouldn't sell him short. if it were just attitude, i don't think republicans would be as worried as they rightly are. i think he's saying out loud, things that a lot of people believe. not a majority, but a lot of people. he talks about politics in a way that people connect to. he talks about immigration and quite frankly, with economic down turns still hurting in some places, immigration is a hot button. you won't get a majority this way. but you can get a minority who is really responding to this guy's perceived honesty, you know. taking on women, you know. lot of guys like him think women have gotten a little too uppity and he says it. >> yeah. he gets away with stuff that nobody else would get away with. all right, susan, always great to see you and loved your latest column. thanks so much. don't forget to read susan's
my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic.
the largest wildfire in washington state's history continues to grow this hour. the flames have burned more than 470 square miles, destroying dozens of homes. right now, the fire is only about 12% contained. the forest service spending $10 million per day to fight those fires in the region which are threatening about 14,000 homes, still in washington state. and neighboring oregon. any health warning for young athletes, a study phones that drinking too much water during sports practices and gams could cause severe consequences under certain circumstances. is overhydration more dangerous than dehydration. let's bring in dr. nina radcliffe, anesthesiologist. thanks for joining us. this is serious. there was a high school football player that died last year an a
multitude of confirmed reports of people running marathons, runners especially being affected by overhydration. how dangerous is it? >> this city is important. it's a warning and call for action. our sporting culture embraces overhydration and they do this because they want to prevent dehydration, avoid muscle spasms, avoid heat strokes. there's a lot of misunderstanding in this. first of all, dehydration rarely, if ever causes death among athletes. in addition, muscle spasms are because of fatigue, not hee hydration and heat stroke is while your body temperature rises. it is not necessarily the cause of dehydration. >> sometimes people get the cramps and go for the water or the gatorade and start drinking it and that ultimately leads to the problem if they overdo it. what is it that's happening inside yir body. >> we call this exercise associated hypernatrinia.
