7:01 am
that has everyone in the stadium glued to the infield. is this the most incredible first pitch ever? okay, major leaguers. how do you like that? that was an incredible first pitch. >> that's unbelievable. >> we'll show more of that later. but, of course to the news and we're going to have the latest on that new bombshell testimony in the zimmerman trial. trayvon martin's father tracy on the stand. and videotape of the three young women held captive in cleveland for a decade. you see them there right now. there they are right now, and there they are the last pictures we saw of them ten years ago before they were captured. abc's alex perez has the dramatic and emotional story. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is the first time we are directly hearing from the three young women. they say they were so overcome
7:02 am
with emotion by the outpouring of support from around the world, they had to say something. >> i want everyone to know how happy i am to be home with my family and my friends. it's been unbelievable. >> reporter: for the first time this morning, we are seeing and hearing from the three young women who lived a nightmare. >> i want to thank everyone who has helped me and my family, through this entire ordeal, everyone who has been there to support us, it's been a blessing to have such an outpouring of love and kindness. >> reporter: in a video statement, amanda berry, gina dejesus, and michelle knight, appear happy, often smiling and expressing gratitude to the countless people who have offered help and donated money to their recovery. >> thank you for the support. >> reporter: the young women never mention ariel castro, the man accused of kidnapping, beating and holding them hostage inside this cleveland house for a decade. but they say two months since they escaped, they are slowly returning to a normal life.
7:03 am
>> i may have been through hell and back, but i am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and with my head held high and my feet firmly on the ground. walking hand-in-hand with my best friend, i will not let the situation define who i am. i will define the situation. i don't want to be consumed by hatred. >> reporter: one of the most touching moments comes from michelle knight. she was reportedly so severely beaten by her captor, she needed facial reconstructive surgery. now, through a gleaming smile, she talks about their strength and resolve after surviving the unthinkable. >> be positive. learn that it's important to give than to receive. thank you for all your prayers. i'm looking forward to my brand-new life. thank you.
7:04 am
>> reporter: and that special fund that was created for the girls after they were found, it's called the courage fund. well, it's grown to more than a million dollars in donations made by more than 9,000 people. george. >> courage is an understatement. they are some powerful women. >> oh, boy. and it just warms your heart to know they're doing as well as they are. all right, thanks. now, to the breaking new details on the deadly plane crash in california. we're seeing brand-new images this morning of the moments after flight 214 slammed into the runway. the heroic efforts by all on board to get everyone off the plane. abc anchor david muir has been leading our coverage from san francisco and joins us again this morning. good morning, david. >> reporter: robin, good morning, again, from san francisco. and those images, really telling, showing the passengers racing to get off that jet. you can still see the wreckage right over my shoulder here just across the bay at the runway at the airport. we've also learned that the ntsb sat down with federal
7:05 am
investigators and sitting down with the pilots including the pilot in training. they will do so again today. and among the questions they'll be asking them is why in the cockpit, they shut down computers and autopilot, 82 seconds before that crash landing. abc news has learned that overnight the ntsb had its first meeting with the pilots of flight 214, including that pilot in training, his first time trying to land a boeing 777 in san francisco. that word comes just as new images emerge, revealing the passengers and their frantic efforts to get out of the jet alive. you can see the chutes deploy and immediately the passengers racing down them. >> oh, my god. that's scary. >> they're running out. >> reporter: the fire then breaking out in the front of the plane, and this morning we now know that that fire started with passengers still trapped in the back. one-on-one with the first firefighters on the scene, they told me how they climbed up the chute into the smoke-filled cabin and toward the back they find mangled seats and the passengers unable to get out. could you see the fear in their faces?
7:06 am
>> i think it was more shock that i saw. eyes wide open just and people looking like they needed assistance. >> reporter: and this morning we are learning more about the other discovery. those two bodies, two teenage girls from china. one found on each side of the plane. the fire chief telling me a member of her team discovering that it looked as though one of the teenagers had been hit by a rescue truck. overnight, the teenagers' families from china, touching down in san francisco. now waiting for word from the coroner here. the girls seen in this image, forming a heart with their arms. and amid the heartbreak, one more story of true courage emerging, the flight attendants. one of them here seen carrying a child on her back. right there in the end, cabin manager, lee yoon-hye trying to put the fires out herself. saying crew members had to use axes to cut through chutes that had inflated inside the cabin. one of her colleagues, choking under the weight of the slide. helping the injured, she then realized she too had been hurt, breaking her tailbone. in front of the cameras in pain, and back in her uniform -- [ speaking a foreign language ]
7:07 am
>> reporter: -- she said her mind was clear from the moment of the crash thinking to her, "i need to put out that fire." that flight attendant among so many who did not give up until passengers were off. we also learned of another scare involving the boeing 777 also headed here to san francisco airport. this one coming from tokyo, but it actually landed back in tokyo four hours after it took off. pilots were concerned about a warning about the hydraulic fluid, the system going down, certainly not the same situation, but jittery nonetheless given the same kind of skwaet. >> david, thanks very much. more from aviation consult stants stephen ganyard. we now know the plane was going in very slowly. your theory on why? >> 82 seconds, george, we know from yesterday that crew had the computer flying both the airplane and engines. at 82 seconds they turned off the computers and were manually flying the airplane so it was almost as if you're driving down the road, going to an exit.
7:08 am
and you take your foot off the accelerator. you're going to continue to steer and you forgot to put your foot on the accelerator. it wasn't until seven seconds later when the plane was almost at stall speed that they realized we need to power up. we're about to stall. >> controlling the engines was still on automatic. what's amazing here it was happening even though there were four pilots on board. >> four pilots onboard. they had a check captain, one of the most senior guys in the whole company, a very experienced pilot. he was there to keep an eye making sure all things were being conducted safely. >> how is this going to change training? >> at least with asiana, they have to go back and look at the corporate culture. to make sure they're adhering to standards. and i think globally i think all air men are going to have to make sure their adherence to procedures and the way things ought to be done is clear. >> can't just rely on the machines. okay, stephen, thanks very much. >> okay, george. now, to the latest on that deadly train accident that devastated a small town in canada. the death toll is rising. and dozens are still missing. yet, this morning, we're
7:09 am
learning one amazing survivor story. abc's gio benitez has that story for us. >> reporter: this morning, even as investigators look for remains of the nearly 50 people missing, they are also focusing on what caused that runaway train to burst into flames. the lead investigator now says the type of tanker, which is also common in the u.s., is known to puncture. the monstrous blaze that destroyed much of downtown here began just after the parked train rolled down a hill early saturday morning, landing just feet away from this packed bar, the musi cafe, the musical heart of this small town. >> we see only a big wall of fire and just tried to escape after that. >> reporter: bernard tobert says he escaped only because he went outside for a cigarette. >> it's the first time that smoking a cigarette gives you life. >> reporter: look at this image of the area before the blast. now, look at it today.
7:10 am
the block unrecognizable. what happened to the other people in that bar? >> i think they -- they don't have time -- many people don't have time to escape. >> reporter: luc dion had just also stepped outside, and you were running? >> yes. fire behind me. yeah. >> reporter: this morning, he says there's no way the friends he left in that bar could have survived. and you know your friends -- >> yes. >> reporter: -- died? >> oh, certainly, eight. yes. >> reporter: this morning so many calling this the train from hell. investigators right now are trying to identify the bodies. but, robin, they can only rely on dna. >> my goodness. all right. thanks very much. >> so much devastation there. we're going to get the latest now on nsa leaker, edward snowden, under pressure from the u.s., he may finally be ready to move out of that no-man's land
7:11 am
in the moscow airport. but the limbo has not stopped him from speaking out. more of his interview with "the guardian" has now been released. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is tracking his every move. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, george. it appears this could be the week that 30-year-old snowden makes his move out of the moscow airport with diplomats in venezuela and russia saying they've received his request for asylum. and it's up to him to choose a flight plan. this morning, snowden remains holed up somewhere in or near the moscow airport out of sight but still a high-profile problem for the u.s. now, "the guardian" newspaper has made public another part of the interview with the one-time nsa contract employee who accurately predicted just how his revelations of america's surveillance programs would be received by the united states. >> they're going to say i committed grave crimes. i've, you know, violated the espionage act. they're going to say i've aided our enemies in making them aware of these systems. >> reporter: and that is exactly
7:12 am
the case the u.s. has been making, with the latest salvo coming monday from the white house, again warning other countries that there will be serious repercussions for any nation that helps snowden. and find asylum. >> he's been charged with a felony or felonies. and as such, he should not be allowed to proceed in any further international travel, other than travel that would result in him returning to the united states. >> reporter: the u.s. says snowden has seriously hurt efforts to fight terrorism by revealing the methods used to listen in on and track terrorists. snowden says he did not start out opposing the programs when he first went to wk u.s. intelligence community. >> i don't want to live in a world where everything that i say, everything i do, everyone i talk to, every expression of creativity or love or friendship is recorded. >> reporter: snowden's most likely path out of russia to venezuela will be the
7:13 am
five-time-a-week flight out of moscow to cuba then on to caracas. that flight left about an hour ago. and he was not on it, according to the personnel staking him out. >> even if that flight, if he eventually gets on one, it will go over u.s. air space. >> it does. and president obama says he will not scramble jets to go after the hacker. but, still, there are things the u.s. could do, and that will be a very high end drama when he does get on that flight, if he makes it. yes, indeed. >> brian, thanks very much. to amy robach in for josh, with the rest of the morning's top stories. hello. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with a big headline about the war in afghanistan. president obama is considering withdrawing all u.s. troops from there by the end of next year and that would be a change from the current plan to have a thousand stay behind and be advisers. in recent weeks, the white house has become increasingly frustrated with afghan president hamid karzai. also, overnight, a stunning revelation about the hunt for osama bin laden. he was reportedly inside a car, pulled over for speeding in pakistan, not long after 9/11. but the police officer
7:14 am
apparently didn't recognize him because bin laden was clean shaven. a leaked report from the pakistani government reveals that bin laden wore a cowboy hat in his garden to avoid being spotted by drones. well, the white house is refusing to cut off aid to egypt despite the deepening crisis in that country. soldiers shot dozens of protesters monday. egypt's interim leader has called for new elections within six months. and closer to home, look at this severe storm dumping record rain on the city of toronto in the middle of the evening rush stranding thousands of commuters, opening up huge sinkholes and forcing the subway to close. the water, so high, it flood the this train. firefighters had to use inflatable boats to rescue hundreds of people on board. and country singer randy travis is in the hospital in critical condition at this hour. the 54-year-old is suffering from an enlarged heart, brought on by a virus. friends say travis thought he had a bad cold until things took a turn for the worse on sunday.
7:15 am
well wishes are streaming in from across the country. and we send ours his way, as well. and finally, another reason to celebrate, the return of the twinkie. hostess says the snack cakes will have a shelf life of 45 days when they hit the stores this month as opposed to the meager 26 day shelf life they had under previous owners. no official word yet on what they're actually doing to make those cakes last so much longer. the company says, you know what, that's proprietary information. i say, ignorance is bliss. >> we have a question. >> i have a follow-up. >> do you? >> i do. is the 45 days a good thing? >> that's what we were implying. that more twinkies for everyone. >> i guess. i guess. >> just as fresh the first day. >> as the 45th day. >> just as fresh. >> day 45 tastes like day one. that should be the new slogan. >> thank you. >> lara right now. who says there are no second acts in american lives? politicians are proving f. scott fitzgerald wrong all the time.
7:16 am
the latest one, eliot spitzer, after getting caught with prostitutes five years ago the former governor resigned, but now he's running for office again, control of new york city. abc's claire shipman has the story. >> reporter: a new political lesson for eliot spitzer, infamy might work to his advantage. it certainly brought the former new york governor crowds he could not have imagined before his prostitution scandal cost him his job in 2008. >> people do get second chances. voters will make that determination. >> reporter: a long, long way from this day. >> i am deeply sorry that i did not live up to what was expected of me. i am resigning from the office of governor. >> reporter: maybe he was feeling left out after watching formerly disgraced congressman -- >> i did not send that tweet. >> reporter: -- now extremely serious new york mayoral candidate, anthony weiner, not only jump in the race but hit a three-way tie in the polls. >> i know i've got a lot of work to do to reearn the trust of not only the voters but my colleagues.
7:17 am
>> reporter: and starring a soap opera love story featuring soap opera star rosario and carolina governor mark sanford. >> the bottom line is, i've been unfaithful to my wife. >> reporter: voters didn't care. they recast him as a member of congress with the other woman, now his fiancee, proudly at his side. >> i just want to acknowledge a god not just of second chances, but third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth chances. >> reporter: it's becoming a time-honored ritual. think, of course, former president bill clinton among others. >> thank you very much. >> i did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss lewinsky. >> indeed, i did have a relationship with miss lewinsky that was not appropriate. in fact, it was wrong. >> reporter: why are repenting bad boys so appealing? they can seem more human as long as the scandal is limited. >> a personal failing versus a public, professional failing, someone being caught with their hand in the till different than their hand someplace it shouldn't be outside of marriage.
7:18 am
>> reporter: now, we don't want to suggest that a sex scandal is a good political strategy. and, by the way, silda spitzer who was at her husband's side five years ago when he resigned, so far a notable no-show. not clear if she'll be involved at all. >> she was not campaigning yesterday. >> oh, boy. no follow-ups on that. >> did someone say it's time for the weather? >> i know, yes. >> chantal? >> yes, chantal and interesting, yesterday we didn't think the storm was ever going to amount much more than just a low-level tropical storm. now, there may be some interest on this for the east coast. so let's keep up with this, shall we? this is what's going on with the idea of chantal. the hurricane center has it crossing barbados and moves to the south of puerto rico. hooks over the island of hispaniola. if it makes it past here, they believe it may be in an area conducive to strengthening in the coast of florida and the bahamas and in that southeast corner of
7:19 am
the u.s., the zone we don't want to see it and the zone we have to watch carefully for. we're in agreement on the spaghetti models until the islands. at that point we need to watch carefully for what's left of the storm and how it strengthens, so baby-sitting this storm for the next foreseeable future until saturday or sunday at least. here's where the strong storms will roll today, minneapolis, chicago, kansas city, goodland, all in line for power storms today. 2 inches of rain. behind that drier air.

7:31 am
let's get to the latest on the trial of george zimmerman. gripping and emotional testimony on monday. the defense arguing that something he says bolsters the case for zimmerman's innocence. abc's matt gutman has that story. >> reporter: for the first time, trayvon martin's grieving father on the stand. >> our world has just been turned upside-down. tracy martin telling jurors that these pleas for help. >> do you think he's yelling help? >> reporter: heard in the background of this 911 call, were his son screaming. >> i was listening to my son's last cry for help. i was listening to his life being taken. >> reporter: prosecutors never called martin to the stand. but on monday, the attorneys defending george zimmerman did, suggesting martin had changed his story to help the state's case. after initially telling police the voice he heard was not trayvon's. >> i never said, no, that wasn't my son's voice. i kind of shook my head and
7:32 am
said, i can't tell. >> reporter: moments earlier, lead police investigator chris s serino, said he gave a different answer. >> he looked away. and under his breath, as i interpreted, said no. >> reporter: just who was crying for help has become the focus of much of the trial. the prosecutors believe the pleas for help came from 17-year-old martin. but zimmerman's lawyers brought a parade of friends on the stand saying the voice belonged to him. >> it was georgey. >> the voice, obviously changes. i've heard a 250-pound man, i mean, sound like a little girl. >> reporter: zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming martin attacked him and he shot in self-defense, after those screams for help for ignored. adam pollack, the man who trained zimmerman in kick boxing, told jurors he was not a fighter. >> he didn't know how to
7:33 am
effectively punch. he was predominantly fat. not a lot of muscle. >> reporter: but legal analysts say that's not justification for zimmerman pulling the trigger. >> he did testify that george zimmerman was a cream puff. but the cream puff had a gun. >> reporter: this morning, we expect the focus to shift from those phone calls to forensics. a noted pathologist is going to be put on the stand. the defense has put 12 witnesses on the stand so far. they're flying through it. it is possible they could wrap up their case as early as today. the jury could get this case as early as the end of the week. robin? >> we'll see what happens. matt, thank you. we're going to bring in abc's chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams. a lot of attention, a lot of emphasis on the 911 call. tracy martin, trayvon's father, so emotional. how is this playing to the jury? >> the defense is calls witness after witness to say it was george zimmerman. even if this jury isn't sure, that's a win for the defense.
7:34 am
that's reasonable doubt. so, i think that's all the defense is really trying to do here. calling tracy martin was a risky move. there's two police officers testified that the first time tracy martin heard that type, he did not think it was his son, tr trayvon. we have the police officers' testimony. they wanted to call tracy martin. in conjunction with getting an effort to undermine tracy martin, you get the very emotional, powerful side of tracy martin, the dad, testifying in effect on behalf of trayvon. >> and today, we heard him answer for it. and things continue, with a forensic expert. what do you think we're going to hear today? >> i think we're going to hear about george zimmerman's injuries and the gunshot wounds. the defense trying to show this is defensive. the defense wants to re-create, create a 3d recreation on how this could have happened. the judge hasn't ruled on how much of that she's going to let
7:35 am
in. but that's how i think the defense wants to wrap all this up. they want to say, this is how we believe it could have occurred. >> matt said moving along quickly here. all along, you have been -- you have said, this is a tough case for the prosecution. >> yeah. >> and you still feel that way? >> yeah. after the prosecution's case, i believe it's hard to imagine, how based on the evidence, that the jurors have seen, they can convict as a legal matter on manslaughter or second-degree murder. but juries are impossible to predict. they make the decisions. and they sometimes choose to go their own way. there's others who say they wouldn't be ignoring the law. >> the jurors have heard every, single moment of testimony. >> that's right. >> we'll see what happens this week. >> all right. now, to the bizarre story about a woman caught on camera soliciting a hitman to kill her husband. you see her right there. she said killing him, get this, would be easier than divorcing
7:36 am
him. and here's another twist. he's fighting to keep her out of prison. abc's john muller has the details. >> he's going to die. you understand that? >> makes me sad. >> reporter: this jaw-dropping video reveals a 21-year-old wife planning a hit on her husband. >> unless you can do it without breaking his back. >> reporter: julia merfeld met with a man she thought was a hitman for hire. >> so, you don't want it done in the house, then? >> it would be messy in the house. >> reporter: providing maps, and a sketch of her home, julia asked the hitman to make the hit look like a robbery. the hitman was an undercover cop. >> she had approached a co-worker about this idea. and that co-worker felt it serious enough and contacted law enforcement. >> reporter: it's why julia wanted to kill her husband that's most shocking of all. >> it's not that we were getting along. but it was easier than -- as
7:37 am
terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him. i didn't have to worry about the judgment of my family. i didn't have to worry about breaking his heart. >> it was too embarrassing for her to be divorced. the new motive was probably greed, for the money. >> reporter: the money she was allegedly after, her husband's life insurance plan, worth $400,000. she used 50,000 of it to pay her hitman, which she planned to play in $9,000 installments. >> you watch both encounters. the first encounter and the second encounter. she's calm. she laughs quite a bit. chuckles, really, at some of the things, whether there's an open casket or closed casket. >> you want an open casket? >> i don't want an open casket. >> reporter: after that two meetings, julia was arrested and charged with a felony for soliciting murder. she pled guilty. >> she had every opportunity to call it off. >> reporter: now, this mother of two faces six years or more in prison, all because she didn't want a divorce. but her husband, the victim,
7:38 am
says he doesn't want her to go to jail at all. for "good morning america," john muller, abc news, new york. >> that's one forgiving husband. >> yeah. >> i like the payment plan. installment situation. what do you have for us? >> we've been talking about how waterspouts have been developing all over the coast. we've been in this a stormy pattern. one developed yesterday around tampa bay. that's a waterspout. they rarely come onshore. when they do, they don't make that much damage. this one came onshore, north tampa bay. did some damage, as well. took down some trees and power lines. look how well-formed that is. that's the pattern we're in. it's likely because of this area of high pressure that we'll pump up the afternoon storms all over the east coast. the other thing this will do, if chantal makes it into the southeastern corner, that's the high pressure that wants to push
