furious? that story is coming up. we start with the opening ceremonies. a quirky, clamorous pageant. they loaded it with the queen to mr. bean, sir paul to the woman who invested harry potter. bill weir is covering the games for abc news. good morning. >> reporter: so great to be back on "gma" weekend, especially since it's noon here. it was everything you might expect from a land that gave us shakespeare, the sex pistols and monty pie thon. they could have gone with andrew lloyd weber. instead, they chose zani boil. judging from all the ecstatic morning papers, they're thrilled
they did. from the buzz, it felt like most opening ceremonies. on the ground, it was all so distinctly british. lush island vajs met the industrial revolution. the queen met bond. james bond. >> good evening. >> reporter: and then they promptly jumped out of a helicopter together. or at least their stunt doubles did. there were little british cars, david beckham on a speedboat, and mr. bean. >> it's not large and sprawling. >> reporter: and then the star attractions entered, from 204 nation. the americans, led by mariel zagunis, a champion fencer as the flag bearer. eb the biggest stars couldn't
help snapping pictures. when the host country entered, the stadium exploded with applause. will, kate, harry, leading the cheers. the queen remained mainly stone faced. in one unfortunate moment, she was seen intently picking her nails while her subjects were going crazy around her. in the end, seven up and coming british athletes lit the flame. one big star left. rock legend sir paul mccartney. closing out the ceremonies with "hey jude." ♪ hey jude ♪ na na na . >> reporter: judging from the british staff we stayed with last night, one of the big moments was the queen jumping
out of that helicopter. just forging love for her all the more. >> we have lockryan lochte and phelps already in the pool. >> both have qualified in the individual medley. phelps, whether he's pacing himself or building the drama, he almost didn't qualify. lochte is a third seed. a couple of firsts this morning. china takes the first gold medal in the women's air rifle, beating the 29-year-old malaysian shooter. she was 8 1/2 months pregnant. so she failed to deliver. this is good news. we searched the globe to bring you the variety of goofiness. this year, organizers said,
women's beach volley ball, you can be more modest. cow can wear longer shorts. a more modest top. and the american women said, no, thanks. we're going to stick with the bikinis since we were in them since toddlers in southern california. and finally, you know, if you really want a north star. a guide as to how the games will go down, why not trust goldman sachs. they did an analysis of the games based of gross domestic products, stability per capita income, goldman sachs says the u.s. will finish first with 37 gold medals. i know how much faith we have in goldman sachs these days, so take that how you choose. >> i was just going to say that. so great to have you there covering. you give us the news and then the news of the weird.
bill will be back in the next half hour with a closer look at the huge rivalry between the simmers, michael phelps and ryan lochte. right now, other news breaking overnight. we go to the guy we call the man, ron claiborne. >> gray was supposed to be the theme by the way this morning. >> the dress, the suit, the hair. we begin with shocking new details about the suspect in the colorado movie theater massacre. james holmes was seeking help from a psychiatrist before the rampage. clayton sandell has the latest. >> reporter: 24-year-old james holmes is an accuse t mass murderer. he's also a psychiatric patient. he was the patient of dr. lynn fenton, who according to her website, specializes in schizophrenia.
the defense is angry that evidence was leaked. the question now is what, if anything, did hol. ss' psychiatrist here at the university know. and if there were specific warning science about his plans, was she required to speak up? >> if a psychologist or psychiatrist feels a patient of theirs may pose a threat, in most states, they're obligated to do something. >> reporter: overnight, our denver affiliate said that dr. fenton was once reprimanded for pribs medicine to family members and employees. the owners of this gun shop say holmes may have visited this remote shooting range for practice. >> they insinuated he came up here more than once. >> reporter: nobody remembers seeing him in the mountains.
investigators left behind these pictures, hoping to job jog memories that might give more answers. and police in maryland may have prevented a work place shooting. a 28-year-old man calling himself a joker was taken into custody for allegedly threatening to fire upon his business that recently fired him from his job. he's undergoing psychiatric evaluation. a pivotal battle is going on in syria for the control of the big city aleppo. artillery pounding the city is being reported. tanks have moved in. many people are fleeing the city fearing a massacre by government forces. we're learning more about the health and whereabouts of
jesse jackson jr. he's being treated at the mayo clinic for depression and gastro zb intestinal issues. a new world record set in one of our favorite sports, joggling. jogging and juggling at the same time. matthew feldman jogged one mile while juggling five balls. he ran it in 6:33, beating the previous record by more than a minute. that record was held for 23 years. imagine trying to run that fast much less joggling. >> why wasn't he at the olympics last night? >> roger bannister. we turn to the desperate scramble at 13 hospitals in 8
states as hospital staff try to identify tens of thousands of people possibly infected by a traveling medical technician. david kerley has more. >> reporter: this is a race right now to fig yr out how many people might have been infected with hepatitis c, by this traveling medical technician. he worked in eight states. the number of pabts could easily reach into the thousands. this man is accused of purposely infecting 30 people with a dangerous disease. and has launched a massive search of what could be an avalanche of more victims. 32-year-old david kwikowski is a traveling medical tech. he used needles, returned them to the hospital that were then used on patients. problem is authorities say he's
contaminated the needles with hepatitis c. >> if he knew he was infected and he put those needles back on the shelf, that's the definition of evil. >> reporter: in new hampshire, nearly 5,000 people may have been exposed. the man was a temporary worker traveling around the country. in the past five years, he's worked in four hospitals in maryland, one in arizona, three in philadelphia, at least eight states and 13 hospitals have been identified so far. those numbers could increase. >> he's allegedly poisoned 30 people in the state of new hampshire we don't know the numbers elsewhere. >> reporter: he was arrested and had an apparent suicide note saying he couldn't handle this stress anymore. some hospitals are calling on thousands of people to get tested, as officials try to determine how many are at risk.
>> anyone in those hospitals when he was working there is potentially at risk. you're talking tens of thousands of people. >> reporter: so we already know 30 people are infected in inspect. . about 75% of them that get hepatitis c get the chronic form, those with serious liver problems. the advice from dr. besser, if you or someone you are close to has been in those hospitals, get yourself tested. good news from wall street. the dow soared over 13,000 for the first time in a long time. one person not making out in today's market. mark zuckerberg. shares of facebook fell to an all-time low of $23.71, nearly a 40% decline from the company's ipo. no one's take an bigger hit than the founder, who has lost billions. it was supposed to be the most
successful new company in decades. >> facebook's long-awaited stock offering. >> the buying and selling of facebook stock today was feverish. >> reporter: during a buzz from wall street to hollywood. >> a million dollars would be cool. you know what's cool? >> reporter: certainly not losing $1 billion. mark zuckerberg has seen $7.2 billion in net worth wiped out. that hasn't seemed to faze him. he married in an intimate backyard ceremony. dining at a mcdonald's while on his honeymoon. taking advantage of record low rates to refinance on his unassuming home. how does the company he made so popular with its users turn into such a disappointment with investors? the big problem, more than $500
million people log on to facebook from mobile devices. that has led some to wonder if zuckerberg can find an answer. >> at some point, the advertisers will find better ways to advertise on mobile devices. they'll turn to facebook for that. >> i asked that analyst when he thought investors would like the stock again, he said it could drop another 30% before other investors start buying. >> no matter what, zuckerberg will still be rich. a bizarre murder for hire case. on three separate occasions, this woman hired someone to kill her lover's wife. >> reporter: hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
yvonne storm is furious. the woman who hired a hitman to kill her three times reached a plea. she said this corrupt plea deal would be more understandable if she had not livid her adult life lying, cheat, sale itealing and trying to kill anyone that crossed her. she is michelle geyser. she says she did it because yvonne's husband jeffrey, a prominent houston attorney, wanted her dead. yvonne never believed that, as she told chris cuomo. >> the affair, okay, i'll give you that one. but to plot my murder? preposterous. i've known this man for 30 years. i know who i'm lying next to. >> reporter: she stood by her man when almost no one else did. prosecutors charged her husband with the three murder plots.
geyser was supposed to be the trial against jeffrey next week. a few days ago, this twisted tale took a u turn. the charges were dropped against the husband. yvonne is happy about that. not about geyser's sentence. she hoped the judge would send the mistress away for 40 years. i beg you for the sake of my children and my sense of security to reject this 20-year deal. i have suffered for over two years due to this animal and remain scarred for life. prosecutors say geyser has cooperated and the plea deal is fair. under it, the mistress who admits to trying to have her lover's wife killed three times could be free in just eight years. ryan owens, abc news, los angeles. time for a check on the weather. go to ginger zee for that. good morning. >> good morning. new york had its first two

repossessed. zw devastating. it would be hard on kiko, too. imagine taking a 6-year-old child and putting it into a home it doesn't know. >> reporter: burg said she bought kiko as a kon companion for her other monkey. with both in court, it was a cage full of monkeys. the texas judge and lawyer taking the monkeying around in stride. >> i wouldn't want to turn them loose this the courtroom. but it was kind of a delight to have them here. >> it's a good break from the normal lawsuits. >> reporter: as she strolled out of court, kiko seems pleased with the justice. the judge dwranted a stay so that the amongky can stay with
debbie burg. >> how many monkey cliches did we get in the piece? >> a lot. coming up, the jackson family saga. why is randy saying the other side is trying to kill his mother? this is not other yet. and pool duel. michael phelps and ryan lochte going head to head. and back to the ballroom. the biggest season of "dancing with the stars" yet, just announced. we talk to the all stars heading back into the competition, that's coming up next. a party?
