7:44 am
the subway lines were flooded, and it took a long time to restore that. who knows if there was structural damage to the facility. but regardless of that, if you have a train come barreling through, you're going to have a devastating situation, and that's what's playing out.
7:45 am
in a parking lot where commuters would normally be gathering. we're just seeing rescuers moving in and out of the train station, taking out injured people. i'm seeing a woman now wrapped in a blanket walking gingerly through an ambulance. others -- we're also seeing -- not just emergency workers doing rescues, but people on the train who helped, or were in the area helping their fellow passengers out. we're also seeing people severely injured who are lying on this parking lot being assessed. they're trying to get people out of the area and to the hospital as quickly as possible. >> steve, how are they triaging many of the victims?
7:46 am
probably about 60 or 70 people, many of whom were standing which is obviously the good news. they appear to be moving -- they are moving on their own power. they each have tags around their necks. they have been assessed by emergency personnel. the more severely injured are being whisked out on people, 75 to 100 people who are all lined up to be i assume taken to the hospital. many of them have bandages to their head. many have their clothing is bloody. some of them are standing up next to an ambulance. some are on the ground.
7:47 am
the ground now. >> how did you happen to hear about it -- did you hear about it and rush over? >> reporter: the latter. i was in my home, heard a lot of sirens. did not know what was going on. i came over and was in the triage area for a while. and as i got closer to the station, the other thing that lives here, as you're watching people leave the area of the accident with tears in their eyes, you know, calling loved on ones, kind of looking to be in a state of shock. >> steve, we know that this transit has 15,000 boardings per weekday. you pointed out how busy it would be in the rush hour, 8:00
7:48 am
sources that multiple i-beams collapsed inside. that rescue krugs a-- rescue cr in the process of removing victims. are there many trapped, those not out and being assessed by first responders? >> reporter: yeah. i can tell you that they're still going in and still bringing people out. this is an ongoing situation here. >> the pictures are jarrin can't imagine what it's like in person. very unsettling to see what's happening. nora raises a good point, they had to have people trapped, what we're looking the now. >> reporter: the instructiontural -- structural integrity is in question. this is an older facility, and this could be a much more
7:49 am
are down. but you can only imagine the force of the train, if it's true that it was going full speed, obviously that would do a tremendous amount of damage. it's incomprehensible that this would happen. you have to figure out what was happening, that train -- who knows, was this a deliberate attempt, was it -- did something happen to the train operator. there's no way of k in hoe boeng, thank you very much. kris van kleave, our transportation correspondent, with us. what will investigators be looking at? >> reporter: good morning. federal railroad administration investigators are on their way to the scene. the ntsb is monitoring this. when you talk about dozens and dozens of injuries and certainly the potential that they could be serious injuries, fatal injuries, you will likely see the ntsb send somebody to the
7:50 am
what happened here. why was the train going so fast, why did it overrun the terminus here. one thing to note, new jersey transit and p.a.t.h. trains won't have positive train control up and running until 2018 according to the fra. this is a situation that likely positive train control would have prevented. the system that keeps a train from going too fast, can stop a speeding train and prevent a collision. one of the questions that's going to come up, i think, the ntsb recommended further study s a difference on trains after amtrak. here's the situation where people are likely going to be thrown around because they're not in seats. that was the cause of injuries in the amtrak crash want don't be surprised to start hearing talk about whether or not seat belts would have made a difference here. but if you're an investigator, you want to find out why the train was going so fast, what was going on with the operator of the train, how much rest had that person had, what was the
7:51 am
coming into a station, why the train was going so fast, that's the question, why the train was going fast enough to jump through the stop at the end of the track and continue going the way it did. >> i had the same thought about seat belts. at a high-velocity crash, as is suspected this hour, when that would have made a difference there. how are first responders making it to the scene? >> reporter: they're battling the new york area t unfortunately. it looks like there were a fairly quick response. you have a lot of emergency responders in the area. the new york/tri-state area is pretty remarkable at how they respon respond to an accident. getting them through traffic and scene, they've stopped the train traffic, the ferry traffic in and around the station.
7:52 am
is to make sure the station and tracks are deenergized. that can slow responders down. the last report we saw is that that completely happened. all the power around the tracks has been shut down, which gives free access. i wonder what is the structural integrity. they will go in one way or another. you have to give thought to how sturdy is the area where the train came to getting people off. and the other thing about trains, people put things above their heads. that's another thing that can lead to injuries. >> i was thinking about that. there is no such thing as a good time for this, but this has to be the worst possible time at commuting rush hour. our coverage will continue on our 24-hour streaming network at cbsn. for those of you in the west, we'll have the latest on "cbs this morning."

? it is thursday, september 29th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning.? more real news ahead, including the candidates work to improve their standing after monday's washington post" reporter ed o'keefe. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> classes are cancelled in townville, elementary, where the gunman opened fire at about 1:45 yesterday afternoon. >> the white house called this the most embarrassing thing the senate has done in decades. >> i think it was a mistake. >> donald trump as the nation now knows prepped lightly for the first presidential debate, now he is cramming and in full public view. >> young voters are three times more likely than the broader
8:01 am
>> his prepared remarks do not mention how the bank has since cut his salary but you can bet that lawmakers will be bringing it up. quoted as saying i dare say it was not even close to being used as a deadly weapon at that time. law enforcement sources are telling cbs news about ten states have had their systems probed or breached by hackers. >> tim tebow took advantage of his first at-bat as a professional ballplayer. >> tebow's fir >> first lady michelle obama campaigned for hillary clinton today telling voters, quote, we need an adult in the white house. and joe biden said, okay, but they can't come in my pillow fort. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. investigators are working to find the motive behind an elementary school shooting in
8:02 am
elementary school. a teacher and two 6-year-old students were wounded before the suspect was apprehended. one of those children is in critical condition. >> a family friend says the teenager was suspended the past two years for bringing a weapon to school. before the shooting the police say the teen murdered his father at home. donald trump is focusing on issues he says he didn't hit hard enough on monday night. in wisconsin yesterday, trump called clinton corrupt and said with her it's about follow the money. last night, bill o'reilly asked trump the following. >> you were smarted paying as few taxes as you could possibly pay. you know that is in the next debate and campaign ads. do you have any defense for that right now? >> no. i didn't say that. what she said maybe you paid no taxes and i said that would make me very smart.
8:03 am
wouldn't mind paying taxes a lot less if our politicians knew how to spend the money, but they don't. they waste the money. they don't know what they are doing with the money. >> trump did not reveal what he has paid in taxes. >> campaigning for hillary clinton in pittsburgh yesterday, first lady michelle obama said a contest reveals who the candidate is. >> if a candidate thinks not paying taxes makes you smart, if a candidate thinks that it's good business when people lose their homes. if a candidate regularly and flippantly makes cruel and insulting comments about women, about how we look and how we act, well, sadly, that's who that candidate really is. >> first lady says that hillary clinton is the only one in the race with the qualifications and
8:04 am
>> ed o'keefe is a political report for "the washington post." good to have you here. what do you think about the presence of michelle obama on the campaign tour? >> she is going to be essential for the clinton campaign in the closing 40 days. she is the closer. no other political figure in the country right now is as popular as her. she is clearly willing to spend some political capital on behalf of one of her predecessors, hillary clinton. this isn't about electing another democrat to the white house for the obama family but it's about preserving his legacy. they see trump as a total rejection of everything they have done. >> trump said he would dismantle some of the obama programs. >> effectively i think the president last week at a black caucus dinner said if you don't turn out to vote, you're rejecting everything i've done that is a message -- >> he called it an insult. >> yes. >> to hear the first lady talk about donald trump calling him erratic, threatening, a
8:05 am
prejudice, fear and lies on the campaign trail. your paper has actually done some polling on the issue of race and gender in this campaign. what have you found? >> we found that if you're a clinton supporter, you believe that men and specifically white men are more powerful than they should be this country. if you're a trump supporter you feel the inverse. i think it exposes the real dee country. you may have anecdotal conversations with friends would vote for her or for him. >> how likely -- how do you measure the enthusiasm and likelihood they will turn out in both sides? >> that is the real difficult problem right now. i think that is why you're seeing the first lady come out, frankly. they know that she is a very effective spokeswoman when it comes to reaching women, to reaching african-americans. they are going to need them in pennsylvania and need them in florida. those are the two first states she is visiting on her campaign swing. they will likely send her to
8:06 am
>> it doesn't seem donald trump is doing any favors the way he is handling the miss machado situation and she is certainly speaking out. what do you think his thinking behind that? >> trump's decision to speak out? >> and the way he is speaking out. >> the more he talks about, the democrats say the better. that means we don't have to spend money on advertising or getting the word out, he is doing it on his own. i think the explanations he gave last night suggesting now that we didn't know each other and i saved her job. have heard before and consistent what he does. >> aren't these voters that hillary clinton needs as well? >> absolutely. at least machado personifies exactly the kind of people she needs to turn out in florida, in nevada, in colorado. >> that is -- >> women, hispanic women especially. clinton campaign is obsessed with making sure latinos show up to vote this year and she does that for them in big ways. >> the former acting director of the cia michael hayden has a op-ed along with michael vickers
8:07 am
seat of the pants approach makes sense for the most important debate of his life, why do we think he would treat meetings in the white house situational room any differently? they support hillary clinton. this issue of preparation is a big one even now that trump is going to prepare more for the next debate and he is cramming and annoyed by these trump advisors who are talking publicly about the fact he didn't prepare enough. >> republicans want him to prepare and see if he does it. his aides are ready to sit him down but it's all about whether ak you ask his supporters they would say he could use a little personal -- >> thank you. >> go ahead. >> i meant michael morrell wrote that not michael hayden. amazon is reportedly building a shipping operation that could challenge u.p.s. and fedex. is it another stroke of genius by amazon or could it end in failure? digital expert nicholas thompson will weigh the risk on that. first, it's time to check

8:13 am
? well, the nation's largest online retailer eventually will start its own shipping business? we told you yesterday about a "wall street journal" reports that says amazon is laying the groundwork for its own shipping service. sources say the giant's goal is to ship its own packages and make amazon a competitor with its current partners u.p.s. and fedex. nicholas thompson is editor of new yorker website newyorker.com. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is so interesting. we have had heard rumblings about this. the u.p.s. is taking a big cut out of their bottom line and profits.
8:14 am
work. this is a huge bet for amazon. we don't know exactly what they are doing and they deny they are trying to take on u.p.s. and fedex but a story came out in "wall street journal" but had 30 sources and amazon is not telling us a lot about it. a few years ago amazon had a lot of problems shipping at christmas so they started their own capacity and have flex capacity when they needed and now looks like three companies you can go from and surely still ship some packages through fedex and u.p.s. but have their own business and the big question is will they ship their competitors' packages? >> a statement by amazon say they are supplementing not replacing. >> yes. amazon always supplements its competitors, right? this seems like they want to be seen as supplementing right now but as many people quoted in that story and in "business week" say supplementation is not the plan. >> look what they did in the enterprise zone. they built a huge business. >> this is absolutely a similar
8:15 am
amazon built the cloud infrastructure and was more profitable than their retail business which is crazy. they host netflix and international based on infrastructure they are building themselves and studying and expanded to others. this could be parallel. they will expand it and possibly provide it to others but possibly not. >> a friend told me you can get anything at amazon, whether food for your hamster or school supplies or new shoes, new clothes so why wouldn't they do this? ms from the people looking outside looking in. >> but the last one said we will solve this problem and where is dhl right now? it's hard to do it. how do you insure the trucks and if you don't have enough orders can you do it efficiently and fill the trucks? we know amazon can pack the boxes right. this is a hard business to get into and fedex and u.p.s., i think are doing pretty good.
8:16 am
information that they have that their competitors don't have. >> they know they have one big customer for sure? >> right, they do. >> when you look at jeff bezos, is there anything that seems to be too risky for him to take on? >> i was listening to an interview he did this summer. what were you not doing? he said i don't think i'm going into the oil industry. >> that is probably a good idea. >> he is doing a pretty good job at journalism. >> "the washington post" saying, oh, yeah, they like it. >> yeah. >> they like it. >> thank you, nick. >> thank you. >> always good to see you. a former bengals quarterback and cbs sports nfl today analyst is boomer esiason who is hosting his radio show right now. hi, boomer. he's in his radio show. he can't hear me. i like his name boomer. he'll give us a preview of tonight's "thursday night

8:22 am
the bengals have what it takes to win tonight in their home building. >> what do you think of the patriots so far without tom brady? >> awesome. awesome. charlie, the thing about the patriots is bill belichick is such an amazing coach and has been since he took over there back in 2001 and watching him over the years and covering him, i'm not surprised by their success. i'm not surprised how they can just plug and play with another quarterback. and when tom brady comes back in week five, they will be playing against the cleveland browns. they will probably, most be 5-0 after that game and well on their way to what eventually could be another undefeated season. the interesting thing is that they actually meet the denver broncos in week 15 out in denver, i believe. so we could actually have two teams, i think, would be 14-0 at that time playing. i think that game is on cbs. i hope it is! >> we do too, boomer. boomer, four other teams undefeated. shall i name them for you? >> if you'd like to.
8:23 am
>> philadelphia and baltimore are two of the surprises. there is no question that baltimore has the culture of winning. john harbaugh is a terrific coach in his own right and they had more injuries than anybody else in football. i guess them and the chargers and very they have come back with a vengeance. the philadelphia eagles are tremendous. i think what is happening there, not only the rookie sensation carson wentz which is a big part of the story, their defense is a big part of the story. they have a new coaching staff there. jim schwartz i coordinator. i don't necessarily know those teams will make it through the year undefeated but certainly they are living large right now. philadelphia is not playing this week. they and the green bay packers are on a bye. >> are you you suggesting if the super bowl was tomorrow you would predict it would be denver and patriots? >> no. they would be in the afc championship game. that is what i would say. the super bowl for me, charlie, would be the patriots and the minnesota vikings. the minnesota vikings are the
8:24 am
they are a team that is going to play monday night and they host the new york giants monday night. that will be a huge game for the giants, but minnesota has built a brand-new stadium and made the trade for sam bradford. they lost adrian peterson but their defense is one of top three defenses in all of football and i think they have the chance to get to the super bowl from the underside of the . >> they pay me to do this. just down the hallway from you. >> i think she was trying to make it "boomer and king" on the radio show. watch out. >> that is what ifg going for. >> bye. >> you can watching the miami dolphins and cincinnati bengals only on the nfl network. a year of change, you could say, for sean combs. ahead, our revealing conversation with the hip-hop mogul. find out why his focus is not on plxs this election season right

probably about 60 or 70 people, many of whom were standing which is obviously the good news. they appear to be moving -- they are moving on their own power. they each have tags around their necks. they have been assessed by emergency personnel. the more severely injured are being whisked out on ambulances, people, 75 to 100 people who are all lined up to be i assume taken to the hospital. many of them have bandages to their head. many have their clothing is bloody. some of them are standing up next to an ambulance. some are on the ground. i'm seeing fire crews, police
8:47 am
the ground now. >> how did you happen to hear about it -- did you hear about it and rush over? >> reporter: the latter. i was in my home, heard a lot of sirens. did not know what was going on. i came over and was in the triage area for a while. and as i got closer to the station, the other thing that was lives here, as you're watching people leave the area of the accident with tears in their eyes, you know, calling loved on ones, kind of looking to be in a state of shock. >> steve, we know that this transit has 15,000 boardings per weekday. you pointed out how busy it would be in the rush hour, 8:00
8:48 am
sources that multiple i-beams collapsed inside. that rescue krugs a-- rescue cr in the process of removing victims. are there many trapped, those not out and being assessed by first responders? >> reporter: yeah. i can tell you that they're still going in and still bringing people out. this is an ongoing situation here. >> the pictures are jarring. can't imagine what it's like in person. very unsettling to see what's happening. nora raises a good point, they had to have people trapped, what we're looking the now. >> reporter: the instructiontural -- structural integrity is in question. this is an older facility, and this could be a much more
8:49 am
are down. but you can only imagine the force of the train, if it's true that it was going full speed, obviously that would do a tremendous amount of damage. it's incomprehensible that this would happen. you have to figure out what was happening, that train -- who knows, was this a deliberate attempt, was it -- did something happen to the train operator. there's no way of knowing a in hoe boeng, thank you very much. kris van kleave, our transportation correspondent, with us. what will investigators be looking at? >> reporter: good morning. federal railroad administration investigators are on their way to the scene. the ntsb is monitoring this. when you talk about dozens and dozens of injuries and certainly the potential that they could be serious injuries, fatal injuries, you will likely see the ntsb send somebody to the
8:50 am
what happened here. why was the train going so fast, why did it overrun the terminus here. one thing to note, new jersey transit and p.a.t.h. trains won't have positive train control up and running until 2018 according to the fra. this is a situation that likely positive train control would have prevented. the system that keeps a train from going too fast, can stop a speeding train and prevent a collision. one of the questions that's going to come up, i think, the ntsb recommended further study as to when s amtrak. here's the situation where people are likely going to be thrown around because they're not in seats. that was the cause of injuries in the amtrak crash want don't be surprised to start hearing talk about whether or not seat belts would have made a difference here. but if you're an investigator, you want to find out why the train was going so fast, what was going on with the operator of the train, how much rest had that person had, what was the
8:51 am
coming into a station, why the train was going so fast, that's the question, why the train was going fast enough to jump through the stop at the end of the track and continue going the way it did. >> i had the same thought about seat belts. at a high-velocity crash, as is suspected this hour, when that would have made a difference there. how are first responders making it to the scene? >> reporter: they're battling the new york area traffic the it looks like there were a fairly quick response. you have a lot of emergency responders in the area. the new york/tri-state area is pretty remarkable at how they respon respond to an accident. getting them through traffic and scene, they've stopped the train traffic, the ferry traffic in and around the station.
8:52 am
is to make sure the station and tracks are deenergized. that can slow responders down. the last report we saw is that that completely happened. all the power around the tracks has been shut down, which gives free access. i wonder what is the structural integrity. they will go in one way or another. you have to give thought to how sturdy is the area where the train came to getting people off. and the other thing about trains, people put things above their heads. that's another thing that can lead to injuries. >> i was thinking about that. there is no such thing as a good time for this, but this has to be the worst possible time at commuting rush hour. our coverage will continue on our 24-hour streaming network at cbsn. for those of you in the west, we'll have the latest on "cbs this morning."
