imagine dragons would say. that's how i feel this morning. great to be by your side. we're going to get up to the park as soon as we can. we're going to begin with the breaking story overnight. this video was really incredible, lara. more than two dozen people injured in a live fireworks show when the fireworks began shooting straight into the crowd. you can hear the screams there. abc's nick watt has been tracking the story all night for us. he joins us from los angeles right now. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, david. well four people remain in serious condition in the hospital, among 28 injured late last night in simi vl lay, northwest of los angeles when the so-called fireworks extravaganza fourth of july celebrations turned into disaster. nearly 10,000 people were packed into the park to watch the display. then this happened. >> oh! oh! oh, my god. oh! oh! oh! run! >> reporter: fireworks were flying thick and fast, horizontally, low to the ground, straight into the crowd.
>> i thought it was pretty spectacular. and then, everything just went crazy. and everybody started screaming. and a block of wood about this big came shooting down. and it hit the side of my leg. >> reporter: here's how it looked from a nearby hillside. >> uh-oh. uh-oh. uh-oh. uh-oh! >> reporter: at first, many revelers were unsure if all this was just a thrilling part of the display. >> is that supposed to happen? >> i don't know. >> what the heck is going on? >> reporter: firefighters set up a triage unit at the scene. kabc's jaci apple was at the event with his family. >> i witnessed a lot of people with eye injuries, arm injuries, second-degree burn injuries in the triage center. >> oh! oh! oh, my god! oh! oh! oh, run! run! run! >> reporter: police say some of the injured had pieces of fireworks embedded in their bodies, like shrapnel.
now, the investigation is ongoing. but officials tell abc news they think that the platforms the fireworks were loaded on just tipped over, aiming the fireworks, lara, at the crowd, not at the sky. >> so scary. nick, thank you so much. now, we turn to the fast-breaking developments in egypt. fears of more violence, after the country's first democratically elected president is reportedly in military custody. abc's byron pitts is in cairo, where there are calls for more protests today. a lot of uncertainty there. byron. >> reporter: good morning, lara. we're above tahrir square, where the crowd is getting larger and louder earlier than normal today. we've spoken to people on both sides saying they expect more violence, especially today, on what the muslim brotherhood has called the day of rejection. fortifying their strongholds,
with a stone wall barrier, the muslim brotherhood has made clear they're not ready to go home or give in, to what is a new reality in egypt. look closely to the left of your screen. members of the brotherhood charge a lone egyptian soldier. they swarm like bees. another soldier tries to intervene. and he, too, was tackled to the ground. >> morsi is -- >> reporter: if anger is the language of the defeated, raucous raw jubilation goes to the victor. fourth of july night on tahrir square had the look and feel of times square on new year's eve. millions believing this is another new step on the journey towards democracy in egypt. interim president adly mansour. was sworn in yesterday. today, he announced the changes to the constitution. hand-picked by the military, he called the muslim brotherhood, quote, part of the fabric of an egyptian society. while he sounded like a leader
advocating reconciliation, members of the military were out rounding up leaders of the muslim brotherhood. former president mohamed morsi is under arrest, as are key cabinet members, like his national security adviser, whose son voiced to us the frustration of a people, not yet in the mood for reconciliation. >> i'm committed to this country. i'm committing to bringing sustainable democracy to this country. if i'm killed in the process, that's a price i'm willing to pay. >> reporter: i went on to ask him, would their demonstration be peaceful? he snapped, why ask me? ask the other side. and david, just about then, i looked to the back of the room, and one of his men was adding a fresh batch of nails to his wooding club. >> all right, byron pitts keeping watch there for us. thank you. we're going to turn to the cold case gaining some heat. it involves a little girl's face you'll remember. madeleine mccann, disappeared from a resort where her family
was vacationing back in 2007. her parents never gave up hope and neither did police. they've reopened the case. and lama hasan is in london this morning with late details. lama, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, david. not only has scotland yard reopened the case launching a new investigation with new leads and persons of interest across five european countries. but detectives now believe that little madeleine mccann may still be alive six years after she vanished. >> my shoes. >> reporter: this morning, a stunning twist in the hunt for madeleine mccann, in what could be a big breakthrough in solving the mystery behind her disappearance. >> there's no clear, definitive proof that madeleine mccann is dead. and so on that basis, i still genuinely believe there's a possibility that she's alive. >> reporter: for the past two years, investigators have reviewed more than 30,000 documents related to the case. now, scotland yard is launching a new investigation, after uncovering new findings and new witness evidence.
>> we have identified 38 persons of interest. and within that, 12 who are u.k. nationals. >> reporter: they released this computer-generated image of what she would look like today. kate and gerry mccann were on vacation in portugal, in may 2007 with 3-year-old madeleine and their twins. the couple left their children in the hotel room while they dined with friends in a nearby restaurant. when they returned, madeleine was gone. >> please, if you have madeleine, let her come home to her mummy, daddy, brother and sister. >> reporter: almost immediately, the mccanns became suspects. but eventually were cleared. >> they are not persons of interest or suspects. they are parents who have lost their daughter. and we're doing all that we can to bring resolution for them to find out what has happened to madeleine. >> reporter: but since her disappearance, there's been dozens of false madeleine sightings, from india, to morocco, to belgium. but investigators believe this time it may be different.
the portuguese police closed the case when it went cold, as part of the country's criminal justice system. they cannot reopen it. unless judges are convinced there is enough evidence. so this latest scotland yard investigation may be the mccann's last chance, the last hope to find out what happened to their daughter. >> lama, thank you. so many people all over the world rooting for those parents and hoping to find little madeleine. >> yeah, after all these years. >> after all these years. amy robach standing by at the newsdesk this morning with developments from the catholic church. >> we begin with breaking news just in from the vatican. pope francis has cleared john paul ii for sainthood. this is a major development, coming just eight years after the former pope's death. he will likely be named a saint during a ceremony at the vatican in december. a huge fire in seattle, overnight sparked by a stray firework. huge plumes of thick black smoke and flames filled the sky over a boat yard and marina. more than a dozen boats were
damaged with estimates at $1.5 million. another important update on the health of the economy. the june jobs report. u.s. employers added 195,000 jobs in june, much stronger than expected, and a sign that the economy is likely to strengthen ahead. unemployment stays at 7.6%. and continuing the good news streak, for commuters in san francisco bay area. trains will now be rolling again in time for the evening ride home. overnight, bay area rapid transit workers called off a 4-day-old strike, saying the contract has been extended for another 30 days. and the parents of the teen girls who were so seriously injured in a parasailing crash on monday, now say both young women are showing signs of improvement. abc's john muller has the detail. >> you're in a state of shock. i mean, this is vacation. it's supposed to be fun. >> reporter: for the very first time, the parents of two 17-year-old indiana girls critically injured in a parasailing accident are speaking out. >> that day, the scene, so
chaotic. we didn't know what was happening. >> reporter: on monday, alexis fairchild and sidney good, best friends on vacation in panama beach, florida, went parasailing. >> oh, [ bleep ]! >> reporter: but then their line broke loose from the boat. slamming them into two nearby buildings, as seen in video by a nearby witness. >> we're at the commodore. and two parasailers just smashed into the top of it. >> reporter: this morning, fairchild and good remain in the local hospital. but are showing signs of improvement. >> she got up today, with therapy. was able to walk. >> she's responding to us, by voice. she will move her arms and her legs. she will respond to commands. >> reporter: initial reports from investigators said that strong winds may have played a large role. on wednesday, aquatic adventures, the company that ran the boat involved in the incident said that while they adhere to the best practices to minimize risk, weather conditions can suddenly occur. meantime, in their indiana
hometown, friends and supporters hung posters to show solidarity and to raise money for the girls' mounting hospital bills. their parents, thankful for the support. >> we need everybody to keep praying for us. >> reporter: for "good morning america," john muller, abc news, new york. >> we wish them a speedy recovery. john, thank you. and finally, how would you like your holiday swim to happen here? take a look. yes, that's water. that's what they're dealing with along a massive part of china's coast. it's the largest ever algae bloom. it covers 11,000-square miles. apparently not bothering animals and certain human beings. they're using heavy equipment to remove the slime. but they have a long way to go. i'm -- >> it's like a spa. it's like a spa. >> really? be my guest. i'm sure it does wonders to the skin. not this skin. >> they say it's totally nontoxic. >> yeah. >> they say that. but i'm sure it feels -- >> they're going to bottle it and sell it. i'm sure. >> paula's going to china to exfoliate. >> you go. >> i see spa.
>> we vote you go. >> all right, amy. thank you so much. we turn, now, to the high-stakes international battle over a little girl. a massachusetts mom says she is trapped in brazil because her ex-husband is trying to use that country's laws to grab custody of their daughter. abc's gio benitez is here with her story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning, lara. this mother thought she was taking her daughter to brazil to see her father. instead, the three-week trip turned into an intense legal battle. now, the mother says she and her little girl are being held against their will. this morning, shauna hadden and her 6-year-old daughter, ava, say they have no way to come back to the u.s. brazilian officials confiscating their passports, after the child's father, in brazil, went to court. the drama started after memorial day. hadden, who has full custody of her daughter, was planning a three-week trip to brazil with little ava.
>> i was trying to do the right thing. he hadn't seen her in four years. >> reporter: when they arrived in brazil, hadden said her ex-husband went to court to get custody of ava. he was denied that, hadden says. but the brazilian judge did order that the father was allowed a supervised visit no later than today. along with ordering that ava turn over her passport. when police came to her door, hadden said she surrendered hers, as well. >> i feared to even go in the car. if i get pulled over and they ask me for my documents, they could throw me in prison. >> reporter: more than a month later, the u.s. state department has not been able to get hadden and ava out of brazil. saying in a statement, the department will continue to monitor the case closely. when are you supposed to get those passports back? >> i have no time frame. i have no idea. >> reporter: stateside, hadden's family is worried sick. >> the only comforting thoughts for my whole family is, she's staying with a wonderful family. >> reporter: massachusetts senator elizabeth warren and congressman richard neal, are calling for mother and child's return. >> we intend to follow up on it. we've already done it twice. we intend to pursue this.
>> reporter: during our interview, little ava tells us, she's sad and wants to come home. at one point, interrupting her mom to say this about her dad. >> mommy, he's being mean to us. >> that's not nice. don't say that. >> reporter: and the state department tells abc news, that u.s. officials have discussed the case with the brazilian foreign ministry to ensure mother and child get all legal protections they're entitled to. we've not been able to reach the child's father or his attorney. >> was there any option for her not to hand over her passport? >> you know what, she told me, she had absolutely no choice. she just had to hand it over. >> thank you so much, gio. we want everybody to weigh in on this story. one woman's fight for her own swimsuit at a water park. she says she was told to cover up or go home. there she is in the bathing suit there. she's claiming it's a case of discrimination against her fuller figure. linzie janis is here with a -- we could say red-hot story. >> reporter: indeed, david. it's interesting. instead of celebrating america's freedom, she says she's had to
celebrate her own. madelyn sheaffer says she was kicked out of a water park because of the way she looked in her string bikini. >> you have the initial embarrassment. but i would say that was followed up quickly with indignation. >> reporter: the 42-year-old and her teenage daughter went to adventure oasis, in indianapolis, missouri, to cool off and have fun. as sheaffer was swimming in one of the pools, wearing this bikini, she says two employees told her to put on shorts over her bathing suit. >> why should i have to put a pair of shorts on when i'm wearing the same size bikini bottoms as the other girls in the pool? >> reporter: when she refused, a supervisor at the park told her to cover up or leave. >> he said because it's a family park. and it's inappropriate attire. not only do i want you to put on a pair of shorts, but you need to put on a shirt, too, because your top is too small, as well. >> reporter: again, she refused. and police were called to escort her out of the park.
sheaffer says she was discriminated against because of her age and fuller figure. >> just the fact that there were other girls wearing string bikinis, you know, 15, 16, 17, 18 years old. and, you know, beautiful young bodies. and they're not being told to cover up. am i allowed to have a mature body? >> reporter: adventure oasis has not returned our calls. but the city of independence which owns in the park told other news media that the facility made the call and we rely on their judgment. sheaffer said she recently lost 100 pounds and was happy to be back into a bikini. >> i'm very comfortable, from what i once was, to where i am today. >> reporter: madelyn sheaffer says she's telling her story because she thinks there's too much pressure to look perfect. she says, we should all love the skin that we're in. >> that's tricky territory when you start telling some people that they can wear the bikini and others can't. >> she had the bikini on. you know? >> she did, she did. >> apparently her 14-year-old daughter who was with her, said she's very proud of her mom for standing up for herself. >> and the crew. they were all watching this story, attentively, by the way. just so you know.
>> oh, yes. a lot of interest. >> everyone weighing in. >> thank you. so, it is time, now, for the weather. and our sam champion, at central park. sam, i understand it's getting very steamy there. >> oh, oh, lara, lara, lara! david! good morning, everybody.

this morning, the night from 17 months ago. >> ma'am, that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> reporter: and his brother unsure if that was trayvon streaming for help. >> you were not as certain that was your brother's voice, correct? >> correct. >> reporter: punctuated the case with emotion. [ bleep ] bunks! they always get away. these were the words in that grown man's mouth. he did not shoot trayvon martin because he had to. he shot him for the worst of
reasons, because he wanted to. >> reporter: catching him in what seems like a lie on wednesday. his college law professor saying he thought zimmer man about florida self-defense laws. >> did you discuss specifically self-defense and stand your ground laws, in connection with violent crime, such as murder? >> yes. >> reporter: a day earlier, jurors watched zimmerman saying the exact opposite in a fox news interview. >> and i was just curious, prior to this night, this incident, had you even heard stand your ground? >> no, sir. >> you never heard about it before? >> no. >> reporter: jurors also heard testimony from rachel jeantel, martin's friend on the phone with him just moments before he was killed. >> you said the man looked creepy. >> creepy, white. excuse my language, cracker. >> reporter: she seemed to establish that martin was scared that night. but defense attorney don west going after her credibility. >> can you read any of the words on it? >> i don't understand. cursive. i don't read cursive.
lar rather, i've been speaking with the defense. their strategy is to shoot holes in the prosecution's case. they say their goal is to shoot holes in the prosecution's case. they don't have to prove that george zimmerman did not commit second-degree murder. all they have to do is insert enough reasonable doubt in the minds of those six female jurors and george zimmerman walks free. lara. >> thank you, matt. reasonable doubt. we welcome judge mary ann gunn. host of "last shot with judge gunn." she's a former circuit court judge in arkansas. i want to ask you, as we wrap up, do you think the prosecution has made its case? >> no, i don't. i don't think anybody thinks the prosecution has made their case on murder 2. they should dismiss the charges on murder 2. their best chance is the manslaughter. >> we're going to hear trayvon's mom take the stand today. will her testimony carry any weight? could that change things? >> i think her testimony could change things regarding the manslaughter charges.
i don't think her testimony is going to change anything on the murder 2. i think the prosecution is going through the motions, when it comes to that charge. and most of their witnesses have been for the defense. i mean, they've been much better for the defense. and trayvon martin's mama is a sweet, gentle lady. and the defense is going to have to be very, very careful with her and gentle with her. but they're going to have to be firm. >> you're saying they haven't done a good job with the murder 2 charge. do you honestly think, though, consider dismissing this? or going for the lesser charge? >> i don't think the prosecution will. i think they should. the judge might. at the conclusion of the prosecution's case, the defense attorney will make a motion to dismiss, i believe, the murder 2 charges. and then, the judge, who is a great lady. she's run a -- has a very tight ship.
and i think she might dismiss the murder 2 charges and let it go to the jury or let the defense put on their case for the manslaughter case. >> looking ahead, it would seem to be very risky at this point, given what you're saying, to put zimmerman on the stand. do you think they will? >> you know, if you don't talk, you don't walk. normally, if you are a criminal defendant. but zimmerman has already, in a sense, testified through the tapes. >> mm-hmm. >> and so, i probably would put him on the stand to say, i didn't do it. because i think the jury wants to hear that. nobody likes george zimmerman. and i think the jury wants to hear him say what happened that night because he's the only survivor. whether the defense decides to take that incredible risk, and it is, remains to be seen. >> all right, judge gunn, thank you very much. we'll find out as trayvon's mother takes the stand today. david? >> so many eyes on that case, lara. thank you.

good morning. i'm eric thomas. you can expect b.a.r.t. trains to begin running again by 3:00 this afternoon. state mediators, bart officials and union leaders announced overnight they will restore service and keep trains running while they continue negotiations for the next 20 30 days. the san francisco giants host the l.a. dodgers at at&t park tonight. meteorologist mike nicco has the game time forecast. >> looks like it's going to be a breezy 64 down to about a cool 59 by the end of the game. almost typical of what you expect at at&t. and that's the way our weather will be. we're back to average. it's over, the heat wave is gone. 80s as warm as it gets in our inland valleys, upper 70s in the south bay, low to mid-70s in the bay where we finally get sunshine by about noon. temperatures drop tomorrow and then they'll be pretty close to average the rest of the forecast. leyla? caltrain is experiencing delays on various trains between redwood city and san francisco due to an earlier fatality involving a pedestrian. so do expect delays to continue for a little while longer.
