tv ABC News Good Morning America ABC May 4, 2012 7:00am-9:00am PDT
good morning, america. breaking right now, hillary clinton, caught in the middle of that international tug-of-war and speaking out at this hour. will she fly that fugitive chinese activist back to the u.s. on her plane? she is set to depart this morning. the entire world watching her next move right now. on the verge. an entire neighborhood on the brink of being swallowed by this massive sinkhole opening up more every hour. this family evacuating just in time. how every home there is on alert this morning. sky-high mystery. this tourist plunges almost 1,000 feet to her death during a tandem hang gliding ride. the pilot accused of hiding key evidence by swallowing it. what happened to this 27-year-old? did she slip, or was she pushed? picture-perfect.
she's one of the most photographed women in hollywood, but she's not an actress. the 16-year-old who has taken snapshots with almost 5,000 superstars. meet the biggest celebrity fan in the world, only on "gma." morning, everyone. we made it to the end of another week. and still, so much to talk about, including the latest in that high-stakes john edwards trial. one of his closest former aides testifying about the shocking moment rielle hunter told him she and edwards were very much in love. >> that is not what he said about her. we're going to get into that this morning. also, the latest on that mom under fire for taking her 5-year-old inside the tanning booth. she thinks she looks just great and that she's a great mom too, and she is lashing back at all of her critics right now. >> she certainly is. and we have rolled out the red carpet this morning. it is almost time for the grand
finale. you thought i was kidding, didn't you? >> i did. >> the dog versus dog challenge. people have been voting all night. they have been staying up voting for our finalists. you can still cast your vote on our website. you see the finalists here prepping to perform live. we'll find out who you chose to be top dog. is that the "rocky" theme i'm hearing? >> it sure is. i went back to the green room, checked them all out. these guys are poised. they are ready. >> jesse, jesse, jesse. >> hold on, hold on. we have to get to news. josh is here with top stories including breaking news out of china. >> good morning, everyone. >> we're going to begin with the potential breakthrough this morning in the volatile diplomatic standoff that's threatened already delicate u.s./chinese relations. secretary of state hillary clinton caught in the middle of it all in beijing. let's get right to abc's martha raddatz for the breaking details here. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, josh. this is the first time we've heard from hillary clinton since blind dissident chen guangcheng
changed his mind about staying in china after his dramatic escape from arrest. embassy staff said they spoke to chen this morning and he, indeed, wants to come to the united states to study. clinton said progress has been made on that front, and she is encouraged by a statement from the chinese government saying chen can apply to study abroad. clinton said the u.s. will stay engaged with the chinese government at the highest level and the u.s. is committed to honoring chen's wishes. this is not over yet, but a big step this morning in resolving this diplomatic and human rights crisis. >> martha raddatz, thank you for that. meanwhile newly released documents from osama bin laden's compound reveal bin laden wanted to attack air force one saying that he hoped to then elevate joe biden to president because biden is, and i quote, utterly unprepared, end quote. and would plunge the u.s. into crisis. but the documents also show bin
laden was, in fact, losing control of al qaeda and spent time obsessing over media coverage. turning now to the economy companies are not hiring as many workers. 115,000 jobs created last month, the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%. and, boy, a heist worthy of hollywood. but this morning, two brothers on the run have been busted because of a rookie mistake. police say amaury and amed villa stole $80 million in prescription drugs from a xen cut warehouse. largest heist of its kind in u.s. history and they may have gotten away with it all if one of them, in fact, hadn't touched a water bottle at the crime scene allowing the fbi to track them down. and the death of former nfl linebacker, junior seau, has officially been ruled a suicide. his family held a public vigil last night. they will allow researchers to study seau's brain to see if head trauma suffered on the field may have played a role in his death.
meantime, more nfl players are now suing the nfl claiming the league failed to properly protect them from concussions and brain injuries. during their careers. and the career of pitching legend mariano rivera may be over. the 42-year-old yankees closer, as you saw right there, tearing his acl after an awkward fall as he shagged flies before last night's game. also tore a ligament in his knee. rivera is, by most any statistical measure, the greatest closer in history. and if it ends like that, what a tragedy that will be. one of the great gentlemen in the world of sport. and the tallest man in america, getting quite a gift. the possibility of a normal life. and all because of a pair of shoes. engineers at reebok have fitted igor valkavinski for a size 25 shoe. igor, a mere 7'8", has hardly been able to leave the house because of repeated surgeries on
his feet due to shoes that don't feet. and, frankly, two feet asked to bear that much weight. and yet if the shoes work out, the big man gets to walk amongst all of us. it would be terrific. >> 7'8". >> 8, 8. >> a tall drink of water. >> he is. >> all right, josh. thank you. >> you bet. now, to the latest on the high-profile john edwards trial. some of his closest aides testifying about rielle hunter's shocking comments about her affair with edwards. and how edwards described hunter to those around him. abc's bob woodruff has the story. >> reporter: john davis once a close aide to john edwards told jurors thursday how he was surprised by a familiar face in the lobby of a detroit hotel back in 2007. it was rielle hunter, he said, who weeks earlier, at the insistence of elizabeth edwards had been dismissed from her job as the candidate's videographer. i was suspicious that mr. edwards and miss hunter had maintained a relationship, davis said on the stand. davis said he went to his room to phone his wife. you're not going to believe this, he told her.
and then he said there was a knock on his door. it was hunter. she said that she and senator edwards were very much in love, davis told the jury. davis says he urged her to leave then called his wife back saying, you are really not going to believe this. the next morning, davis says, edwards told him hunter was crazy and to make sure she didn't contact him. he denied there was an affair going on, davis testified. >> there's a real history here with distraction. all of the salacious detail can confuse the jury. the real key, did john edwards do this as a violation of federal campaign law? >> reporter: davis also told jurors about the day "the national enquirer" showed up at hunter's doorstep saying he overheard a phone conversation between edwards and his new pregnant mistress. i heard him ask rielle, are you showing yet? can people tell you are showing yet? two weeks later "the enquirer" first published the story about it. john davis was aboard a campaign
plane with edwards and his finance chairman, fred baron, who allegedly provided financial support to cover up the affair. in a critical moment of testimony, davis says, as they discussed the article, baron assured them the press isn't going to find hunter because of the way he was moving her around. now, it's actually two weeks now into this trial. so far no sign yet of rielle hunter. we do know that she's going to testify. one very interesting witness later on today is bryan huffman. a very close friend of the big benefactor for john edwards, for bunny mellon, and he appeared yesterday very quickly in the court, and he was just cracking up the entire court making the jurors laugh. all of us laugh. he's going to be very funny again today. george? >> bob, thank you very much. let's bring in our legal analyst, dan abrams, for more on this. and, boy, john davis brings you right into the heart of the edwards campaign with all these details. >> witness after witness being called to say this was part of the campaign. again, the crucial question, was this money designed for a
campaign cover-up, which would make it illegal, or a personal cover-up, which wouldn't be illegal. so the prosecutors are trying to call all these campaign workers to say, yeah, we knew about this. yeah, this was a part of our lives. yeah, this was a part of the campaign. so these are all important witnesses, piece after piece. >> and davis ties it right back to the campaign chairman, fred baron. who's providing a lot of the money. >> he's one of the two key donors in question here. >> the second one is this heiress, bunny mellon. 102 years old, and it was her aide, her go between, friend brian huffman that bob was just referring to. he was only on briefly yesterday and i'm just a layperson. but from my perspective, he seemed very, very damaging to the defense because he said he and she believed that this money was solely for the campaign. >> it is definitely helpful to the prosecution. but, remember, the key question is what was going on in john edwards' mind so even if bunny mellon and huffman thought, yeah, this is probably for the campaign, and john edwards
thinks, well, this is great, i'm getting this money so i can create this cover-up so my wife won't find out about it, that's the key question, what's happening in john edwards' mind. >> how does it cut when john edwards tells her according to some testimony, that this is all perfectly legal according to lawyers he's checked with? >> because john edwards' position could be it's totally legal for me to engage in a personal cover-up. john edwards' position is yeah i looked it and for me to try to hide this from my wife is a gift. that's not a campaign donation. so he would say perfectly legal. that's the position he would take. >> okay. dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right there, george. now, to another high-profile trial that's grabbing headlines. a dramatic verdict in an emotional deadly hit-and-run case that pit a stepdaughter against her stepmom. the jury found amy senser who was married to an ex-nfl player guilty on two of the three felony counts. and abc's linsey davis is here with more details on this. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. people have really been riveted
by this case. it's actually known as the trial of the year in the twin cities. this highly emotional family drama has been playing out in court. and now the stepmother whose stepdaughter very publicly turned against her, faces jail time. when the verdicts were read, the first visible tears were from one of the jurors. amy senser simply stared straight ahead silently. a final, unemotional moment in a headline-grabbing trial that pit stepmother against stepdaughter. senser, the wife of former minnesota viking joe senser, faced three felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run that hit this man, 38-year-old anousone phanthavong. the jury found her guilty of two of them. leaving the scene of an accident and failure to promptly report an accident along with a misdemeanor charge of careless driving. >> certainly not what we expected. i firmly believe in miss senser's testimony. and she is not the type of person who would knowingly leave a man in the road to die.
>> reporter: senser testified she thought she hit a construction barrel or pothole, not a person. phanthavong was filling his car when gas when he was hit. his family called the verdict justice. >> all that they've wanted in this criminal proceeding was for justice to be served. and they're thankful that that was accomplished. >> reporter: the highly charged case was taxing on the senser family. during the trial, senser's husband lost his cool with the media. >> why don't you guys get a life? >> reporter: and her stepdaughter, brittani, an aspiring pop singer testified against her telling jurors that senser came forward after the crash only because she threatened to go to authorities herself. britney britney britney was angry because there were rumors swirling she was driving that night. during closing arguments, the prosecutor said amy senser must have known she hit a person. saying senser lived in a place called amy world, where, quote, you can testify and say things
and people will believe you. this is not amy world. this is the real world, the prosecutor said. actions speak louder than words. the victim's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the sensers. meanwhile, senser's attorney says they plan to appeal yesterday's verdict. amy senser will remain free until sentencing. but faces 48 months in prison. her defense team will ask the court not to send her to prison. we saw joe senser trying to comfort his wife yesterday whispering in her ear. this is not the verdict they were expecting. >> of course not and as you said, they are going to appeal. all right. linsey, thank you. >> thanks, guys. now, to ohio where today the columbus zoo will transfer several wild animals, including two leopards and a bear, back to the widow whose husband released dozens of animals from their farm last fall before taking his own life. the animals' move is creating a lot of controversy right now and abc's reena ninan has more. good morning, reena. >> reporter: good morning, george. it was a crazy night the evening these animals were released, just before their owner committed suicide.
now, they're being returned to their owner's widow. these exotic animals will leave their surroundings at the columbus zoo this morning and return to this southeast ohio farm. exclusive video just obtained by abc affiliate wsyx and shot back in 2008 allegedly shows how the animals previously lived. caged inside the home of terry thompson. six months ago, thompson let 56 of his exotic animals loose in zanesville, ohio, before committing suicide. >> i'm pretty sure i just saw a wolf in our parking lot. >> reporter: terrified, police gunned down 48 tigers, lions and bears, and ohio authorities quarantined the remaining surviving animals at the zoo, but that order was lifted monday. now the sole survivors will be returned to thompson's widow, marian, and allegedly will go back to these cages, which reportedly haven't been repaired or improved. upon hearing the news, the zoo's director emeritus jack hanna
immediately took to twitter. "it breaks my heart to think these animals could be returned to the horrid conditions in which we found them. what i saw in zanesville last october changed my life forever." hanna tried to help wrangle the animals that night and shortly after spoke with "good morning america." >> i know you said you're going to be haunted by this. >> you know, when i see these pictures and see this it's something that's hard to believe. >> reporter: the local humane society said in their past three visits they found no violations. and thompson's lawyer says she's ready to have her animals back. but her neighbors don't feel the same. >> we really didn't want the animals coming back here after the experience we had. >> reporter: once the animals are returned, there's no ohio law requiring state officials to check up on the animals or even to mandate improved living conditions. robin? >> no doubt the neighbors are concerned. thank you, reena. thank you. but now to that enormous sinkhole that has an entire neighborhood, well, very concerned right now, to say the least.
one family already evacuated. more worried that they'll be forced out as it spreads. and abc's yunji de nies has the very latest from the scene in windermere, florida, near orlando, of course. good morning, yunji. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it really is incredible. take a look. this ole stretches 100 feet across, 50 feet deep. that is the length of a basketball court, big enough to fit two school buses inside, and it is growing. the hole is enormous. and apparently still growing. >> it's scary to even think about it. >> reporter: much of the ground simply collapsing in just one night. >> when we came outside it was just dropping into the hole. >> reporter: the lambro family woke up thursday morning to find their windermere, florida, backyard gone. the massive sinkhole, which has already swallowed four trees and a hammock has now grown to at least 100 feet wide, 50 feet deep, and this morning appears to still be inching ever closer to the lambros' backyard.
>> i said it would be nice to have a pool, it's such a pretty view back there. but i didn't want this. this is a little too deep. >> reporter: the home has been ruled unsafe. and the lambro family evacuated. now, neighbors fear they may have to do the same. >> you never know. what's going to happen. it can spread even more because it's spreading like every hour right now. >> we just bought a house last year in the neighborhood. so that was our first concern. >> yeah. is our house going to fall in the sinkhole, too? >> reporter: so just how does a sinkhole like this form? groundwater builds up and dissolves minerals into the earth creating a hole underground that eventually becomes so large the land on top caves in. they can run more than 100 feet deep. 2009, a dallas sinkhole spread 600 feet wide swallowing trailers, oil equipment and telephone poles. this colossal sinkhole in deltona, florida, in 2004 devoured homes in its path stretching 225 feet.
in the same year in baltimore, a mother and daughter driving to the mall ended up in a 20-foot sinkhole. they were lucky to survive. which is why the family here got out fast. you can see that hole is right now up to the side of the house. we've already observed cracks in the stucco. engineers will be out here later today to try to figure out how to stabilize it and hopefully how to fix it. robin? >> and hopefully you'll take care. you're right there on the edge, yunji. >> come on. >> come a little bit closer. stand closer to the camera. thank you. it is time now for the weather. sam champion, happy friday. >> happy friday. >> any cinco de mayo plans? >> and stuff at the derby tomorrow. should be a lot of plans involving adult beverages, it sounds like. many. i'm just saying. let's start with pictures going on. we've got big-time storms, a lot of them into the northeast. and lightning strikes thousands of them early this morning and overnight.
these shots from henrietta. they're also running from new york city and a little bit north, as well. heavy rain in an idyllic town we call ithaca, new york. that heavy rain is spreading into the northeast. it's likely there will be several spots of strong to severe storms today. that little zone from washington and new york city, chicagoland, indianapolis, omaha, as well, and oklahoma city all the way to abilene, it's likely you'll see strong storms out of this. looking for hail, as we've seen all spring. even some strong to gusty winds. here's the big heat today. places like denver, raleigh high temperatures, record highs.
>> whater you >> whatever your weekend plans are, have a safe and happy weekend. >> thank you, sam. and coming up on "gma," mystery in the sky. a passenger's fatal fall 1,000 feet to the ground. the pilot now accused of hiding key evidence by eating it. and a supermodel fighting for her son. new details about how salma hayek's husband really felt about linda evangelista.

boyfriend, a chance for lenami godinez to soar. it's now a bizarre mystery, one that began almost as soon as the 27-year-old godinez and her pilot took flight outside canada. >> she was no longer horizontal. it looked like she was hanging vertically. and had, in essence, bear-hugged the pilot in command in an attempt to stay up. it looked like she was slipping down his body and eventually let go at the very end. >> reporter: godinez plunged nearly 1,000 feet to her death. investigators don't yet know what happened but as the pilot responsibility for preflight safety checks, fell to 50-year-old william jon orders, a 16-year glider veteran. >> jon is very upset. he's very sadden eded by everything that's happened. >> reporter: the story might have ended there, if not for a strange twist. police say, immediately after he landed, orders went to the tiny video camera mounted on the wing. a camera that likely recorded every moment of that horrible flight. he allegedly took out the memory
card, then swallowed it. he's now in custody, charged with obstruction. >> there have been a series of x-rays taken. we have confirmed. we're just kind of in the waiting process here. >> reporter: hang gliding experts here in the u.s. say deaths like this one are extremely rare. how does something like this happen? >> i don't want to speculate on what happened in canada, but in the u.s. i can certainly say this has never happened. >> reporter: today, orders is due in court. police are watching his every movement, hoping the evidence he swallowed reappears intact, along with some answers. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, colorado springs. now, to that supermodel trial that's making big headlines. linda evangelista once said she wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. now she's asking for almost $50,000 a month for her son from salma hayek's billionaire husband. he is saying he didn't even want her to have the baby. and this trial is playing out in court right now. >> i bet she wishes she never made that statement, right?
things are, in fact getting ugly in the supermodel trial. insults, accusations, flying fast and furious in a manhattan court yesterday. as linda evangelista faced off against the french billionaire, who fathered her child. linda ee advantage lisa is seeking $46,000 a month from francois henry pinault. pinault testified "we were dating four months. and i didn't know her very much. she was so happy to be pregnant. but it was not planned. i decided to stop the relationship at that point. in opening statements, evangelista's lawyer, william bezlow said his preference, that she terminate the pregnancy. the supermodel claims she raised the child without one penny, franc, or euro, financial franc, or euro, financial contribution from the father. pinault runs gucci and yves st. laurent and is married to salma hayek and has a child with her,
as well. he claims the money is for linda and not his child. >> this is not child support. this is, in effect, alimony or mom support for someone he wasn't married to. >> reporter: among the expenses, evangelista claims as necessities, 24-hour nanny care. a car and a personal driver. reportedly an armed ex-police officer. also, two apartments, one to live in and one close to augie's school for play dates. pinault has reportedly already been paying for school, health care and child support since late august. but the supermodel's attorney defends evangelista's commands. claiming, ms. evangelista is not looking to piggyback on the life of mr. pinault but is looking for a continuation of the reasonable life of style of augie. >> the child is entitled to the same standards as he's enjoying and his other children. so, no that's not outrageous, not if he is a billionaire. >> a couple of interesting points being made in court. pinault said they only went on seven dates in their entire

i'm back, now, with barbara walters, who has a special edition of "20/20" tonight, which takes a closer look at extreme parenting. it has moms and dads who make choices. some will make you think. some will make you very mad. all fascinating, especially the sneak peek you have for us. >> i'm anchoring this special "20/20" tonight. they're vastly different families. you'll meet one mother who gives her teenage daughter a $10,000 painting and a trip to the grammys if she gets good grades. >> you could try that. >> taking notes. right. >> another couple are raising their children in a nudist colony. they raise them nude. you can try that, too, george. >> i will not try that. thank you very much. >> my favorite, a mother and
father and their five children. two are biological. three are adoptive. they're all dwarves. and they have their own brand of extreme living. i love them. and we all have a lot to learn from them. take a look. meet the johnston family. they are extreme in many ways. >> i'm amber. >> and i'm trent. >> and this is our family. >> i'm jonah. i'm 12 years old. >> this is my puppy. i'm elizabeth. i'm 10 years old. and i'm 47 inches tall. >> i'm ana. and i'm 11 years old. and i'm 44 inches tall. >> i am emma. i'm 38 inches tall. i'm alex. i'm 37 inches tall. >> reporter: standing no more than four feet tall, they are the real-life seven dwarves.
when it comes to parenting, amber and trent go to extremes to keep things extremely normal. your tables, your chairs, your furniture, your everything, is just the same as the average size. most parents try to make things easier for their kids. you don't. >> no. we strive to raise our children in the world that's not built for them. >> reporter: hi, jonah. when you're here in this house, and the furniture is not built for little people, and you have to climb up and struggle some, would you rather that mommy and daddy had built smaller furniture? >> yes. >> reporter: you, too? yeah. are you listening, mommy and daddy? they don't like it so much they have to climb up on things. >> but i think they'll appreciate it in the long run. >> reporter: when you all go out, and when people don't know you, are you ever bullied or stared at? >> yes.
>> reporter: how does that make you feel? >> probably frustrated. the more frustrated. >> reporter: because? >> i don't think they -- >> reporter: are you bullied in school, elizabeth? >> yeah. >> reporter: do they tease you? >> yes. last year, in third grade, they started making fun of me. they started calling me midget. >> reporter: do you ever say anything back? >> i say that's how god made me. >> reporter: do you want to have children of your own? >> yes. >> reporter: you want to have children of your own? you're such a little pumpkin yourself. do you want to have average-sized children? >> i probably would want to have a little person because average-sized, more people in public would think that they were the parent and i was the kid. >> reporter: i see. so, if you had someone who is your size, you'd have another little person, then you're all one family, the way your family is now. >> hi. >> i want to know so much more
about that family. >> you have to wait. >> at the top of the show, i was being, i though, very p.c., calling them little people. you come out and call them dwarves. >> i wasn't sure. they don't mind being called dwarves. they would prefer little people. but they don't want to be called, they say it's derogatory, midget. >> and the parents, were their parents dwarves? >> amber's parents were not. she was the only dwarf. she had two average-sized sisters. and in the case of her husband, his family were all dwarves. they adopted three dwarves because they couldn't have a third. and the little -- the small ones want to have dwarves themselves. >> that's a great story. a lot of great stories on tonight. a special edition of "20/20." >> especially the one in the nude, that you're going to be in. >> that's twice. extreme parenting is on tonight at 10:00, 9:00 central, here on abc. >> nice try, barbara. love having you here. now, to the whole-body makeover that can take years off in one visit to the doctor. it's a brand-new procedure that
claims to do just that without leaving a single scar. does it work? we sent abc's paula faris to check it out. >> reporter: it sounds too good to be true. walk into a plastic surgeon's office for a face-lift, and walk out four hours later looking years younger. >> it's the holy grail. >> reporter: and even better, it doesn't involve going under the knife. that's why deborah kerr decided to try it. she spent most of her youth in front of the camera. but now, at 55, she's not happy with what she sees. >> my eyes are looking heavier. and the lines are so pronounced. and gravity has really taken over. >> reporter: to make it happen, she is opting for a treatment called a stem cell makeover. it uses fat and stem cells to revamp her body in one office visit. >> we are taking her own fatty tissue, and we are repositioning
it to another part of her body. >> reporter: fat is removed via liposuction, and then, reinjected into her face and breasts. a whole makeover in a few hours. >> this enhancement will be enough to make her happy. she won't have any scars. she doesn't have the risks associated with general anesthesia or a full face-lift. >> reporter: and because it's deborah's own cells, there's virtually no risk of the body rejecting the transfer. but experts warn that procedures like these need more study to prove they are safe. the surgery takes roughly four hours, with the addition of an optional small tuck in her breasts. injecting the fat is a painstaking process. there is no room for error. weeks later, after swelling has gone down, we see deborah for the first time. here she is before. and here she is after. you can see the fat added here gives her a more youthful appearance. her breasts look fuller in her bikini top.
and don't forget her slim waste from the fat removal. >> it's been natural. it's been a subtle face-lift. >> reporter: and with her makeup on and newfound self-confidence, deborah is ready to return to her roots, a photo shoot. >> i didn't think i'd look as good as i feel. >> and since the cells come from the patient's body and are reinserted, they're not considered drugs. that means the fda does not regulate this procedure. and experts warn, it's still too early to determine how effective this treatment will be. they need to do studies to see how well it holds up over time. one other consideration, costs. doctors are charging as much as $15,000 for stem cell makeovers. let's get outside to lara, who is in front of some vegas showgirls, i think. >> is that a problem? it is friday, after all, robin. spring weather does often mean showers in the forecast, as we know all too well here in the northeast. we decided to get ways to rock
