7:01 am
to you live. "gma's" special coverage of "the royal baby: heir to the throne" begins now. and good morning, america. those royal trumpets can mean only one thing. a little excitement here this morning. it won't be long before we learn about a future king or queen of england. kate went to the hospital about six hours in central london. look at this crowd growing outside buckingham palace. right now, more than a thousand people waiting for the royal announcement. >> and the duchess is in a private wing of that hospital right there in central london. she arrived there shortly before 6:00 a.m. london time through a side door. >> and this morning the queen is at windsor castle and there is prince charles. he's in york this morning.
7:02 am
and for those of you who pay attention to this kind of thing, kate did go into labor during a full moon. >> wow. >> for whatever that is worth. >> wow. >> whatever that's worth there, lara. abc's amy robach is outside st. mary's hospital right now and has the very latest. good morning, amy. >> reporter: good morning, guys. and saw that full moon last night and we were thinking, something might be up and sure enough, 5:30 this morning we now know that william and kate were driven here to a secret entrance by a royal security guard. she's been in labor for nine hours. for the many, many journalists who have been here for the past three weeks, we know now that lindo wing is no longer in
7:03 am
limbo. that secret entrance to the hospital took the scores of media waiting outside by surprise. the palace had always indicated that the duchess was due in mid-july. so camera crews from all corners of the globe had been camped outside of the lindo wing at st. mary's hospital for weeks waiting to catch a glimpse of the royal duo. for an anxious nation word that the duchess is in labor is welcome news. >> that's why it's been exciting. >> hopefully a boy actually. hopefully a boy. >> i think the country would be delighted what it is. >> reporter: kate has reportedly been hoping for a natural childbirth and will be shepherded through her labor by a veritable medical dream team headed by renowned obstetrician dr. marcus setchell and dr. alan farthing. prince william is expected to stay by kate's side throughout her labor and will take two weeks of paternity leave. elsewhere in england today proud grandpa-to-be charles was all smiles awaiting word of his first grandchild. as soon as the baby is born, a
7:04 am
paper confirming the gender and weight of the heir to the throne will be taken by page from the hospital to buckingham palace and will be shared with the waiting public on an easel placed just inside of the palace gates. how long kate and the baby remain in the hospital is up to the royal couple and their medical team. in the case of princess diana, she stayed in the hospital just one night before stepping down the same steps of st. mary's that kate is expected to step down with the future monarch in tow. and, george, for so long i've seen these tired long faces, there are nothing but smiles as far as the eye can see despite this 90-degree heat, everybody is full of excitement for this baby. >> and it's infectious. amy, thanks very much. and as amy said the baby's announcement will be posted outside buckingham palace and that's where abc's lama hasan is, and that crowd with you has been growing for hours. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. it's absolutely amazing, the
7:05 am
excitement and the anticipation is building here and the atmosphere is just brilliant. take a look at the thousands and thousands of people gathering outside buckingham palace right now. they're here for the changing of the guard, but, boy, let me tell you when the news about william and kate's baby started spreading there was a buzz in z because, after all, it is here at buckingham palace that the formal announcement will be made and that's also when the world finds out. now, that notice may also include information, for example, when prince william was born, they described him as having blue eyes and crying lustily. now, once william and kate have their baby, the bells at westminster abbey will begin ringing, three hours of ringing, robin. >> all right, lama, thank you so much. you have been patient. we'll get more on this from british royal historian robert lacey. he's been writing about the queen for nearly 40 years and is the author of several best-sellers on the royals including the queen and princess diana. i know you have been very patient as well, robert, and you recently saw kate's mother, just
7:06 am
happened to run into her. you talked about the impending birth. what did she tell you? >> well, it was about ten days ago over there in the gardens of buckingham palace, concert to celebrate the queen's coronation, 60th anniversary, and as we were all dashing to our cars of afterwards and going to retrieve our mobile phones that had been taken away for security purposes she turned to me and said, "i shouldn't be here. catherine is expecting any day now." so, that was ten days ago. she's getting her wish of having a natural birth. there's no talk of induction and, well, we keep our fingers crossed now. >> yes, we do. and the baby's other grandmother, the queen, of course, going on holiday at the end of the week. when do you think they may meet her great grandbaby, which will be third in line for the throne. >> well, i think she'll probably go to kensington palace where william and kate have set up home. they got a little cottage in the grounds called nottingham
7:07 am
cottage, they're living there temporarily before their big apartments in the palace are ready. we know that kate's been out getting all sorts of decorations and everything for the nursery. that's where they were, we believe, this weekend, and so it seems certain they'll go there and then the queen will drive up from windsor at some stage to see her great grandchild. >> that will be a moment. and what do you think about this? give us a sense of the history of where the duchess is going to give birth. >> well, the lindo wing is the most exclusive wing of st. mary's paddington hospital by the great paddington station. it's where the elite for 30, 40 years have gone to birth. it's private, of course. they actually lay on champagne so you can celebrate when you've had your baby and they also have a birthing pool so maybe kate is in that at the moment although there's no disclosure on that. >> robert, it's great. this is such wonderful news and
7:08 am
we've been waiting for this moment. just explain to people here on this side of the pond what this moment means. >> well, it will be the first time since the end of queen victoria's reign when we will have three future monarchs alive, we hope, at the same time as the monarch in residence, the queen. that will be the queen and then, of course, prince charles, prince william, and the new baby and, of course, the really historic thing is that whether this baby is a boy or a girl we know that it is destined because of a recent change in the law to be the future king or queen, the future monarch of great britain and, of course, of canada, australia, new zealand, that's 15 other kingdoms around the world. >> robert lacey, thank you very much, as always, for your insight and we're waiting for those words, baby and mother healthy. we got an expert right here, jen ashton, delivered more than a thousand babies. >> yep.
7:09 am
>> so, just take us inside the hospital right now. first several hours for a first mom. >> well, first thing to recognize, george, is that whether this is occurring at st. mary's or all over this country in labor and delivery units, the same basic things occur. and we have to remember that in obstetrics we have two patients on our hands at least. so, when she's admitted first thing you do you get the maternal vital signs, blood pressure, some basic blood tests and then you assess the well-being of the baby with an external heart rate monitor. if everything looks good and her obstetricians have examined her we let nature take its course. at least in the beginning. >> we know kate had complications early in the pregnancy, will that affect anything? >> it really shouldn't. she had a healthy pregnancy for now everything looks good. >> your guess, how long will it take? >> the crystal obstetric ball. really, when you talk about how long labor lasts, george, we look at four factors, we call them the four ps, first one is the power.
7:10 am
how hard is the uterus contracting. the next one is the passenger, and that's the baby, how big is the baby and what position is the baby in to navigate the pelvis. the third one, the pelvis, the bony structure of the pelvis, the size and its configuration. and the last one, mind/body connection, psyche, and that's the mother's mindset, all of those factors so important. >> out of time. birthing pool? >> well, it's very relaxing for a lot of women. if she wants to be underwater and her doctors give the green light, she can do that. >> jen ashton, thanks very much. we are going to move on now to that flash flooding emergency in phoenix. heavy rain in that area, just minutes sweeping vehicles away and sending emergency crews to rescue people stranded in their cars and homes and abc's ginger zee is here with the story. and, boy, these pictures. >> and so many and that's the thing. it wasn't just the numbers as far as the rainfall. because those are impressive alone, but look at the number next to them.
7:11 am
how quickly they fell, in 30 minutes almost two inches in scottsdale. so many others having the same fate. it was the headline, too much, too fast. nearly an inch of rain in just 30 minutes. parts of phoenix, arizona, saw rivers of mud, raging waters to four feet deep. at least eight people rescued after flash flooding inundated the region. two teenage boys airlifted to safety after swift waters crippled their suv. they captured the dramatic rescue on their cell phones. >> it felt like probably five minutes but it was only 30 seconds. >> got one view out here. >> reporter: here, a young man and woman trapped in their pickup truck desperate for help. the driver of this sports car made it only two blocks before the debris-filled current overtook him. >> all of a sudden his little corvette comes bobbing down the water. >> reporter: a 70-year-old woman was in her car when it was swept away by powerful waters moving through this neighborhood. and then there's this driver deciding to go for it but then a smart change of heart. the muddy waters rushed through yards and homes, many watching
7:12 am
it all unfold right in their own backyards. >> to see a wall of water coming towards you, there's nothing you can do. >> reporter: in tucson a similar story, three children rescued after getting caught up in a violent riverbed. >> they were just out playing and all of a sudden they realized they're surrounded by water. >> reporter: and this is the season more rain on the way, phoenix and tucson both in that quarter to half-inch range. places like palm springs and los angeles getting into it. vegas up to an inch. a lot of those accidents happen because people were in cars. it only takes two feet of water to move a car. >> that's it? >> yep. >> thanks, ginger. now, we're going to get the latest on that terrifying roller coaster accident at six flags over texas where a woman fell to her death in full view of other parkgoers. investigators now trying to figure out what went wrong. why she wasn't secured in her seat, and abc's clayton sandell is on the scene. >> reporter: this morning the german company that built the cars for the texas giant is reportedly sending experts to six flags over texas to help
7:13 am
unravel a tragic mystery, how rosy esparza fell to her death. her son was on the ride too. >> it was surreal. the seats, the seat restraint was in its normal position but there was nobody in the car. >> reporter: riders are supposed to be held in with a t-shaped lap bar. carmen brown says she heard esparza tell an employee before the ride her lap bar might not be secure. >> she goes up like this and then when it drops to come down and that's when it released and she just tumbled. >> reporter: but with no sign of foul play, determining what happened is up to six flags. in a statement, the company says "we are committed to determining the cause of this tragic accident and will utilize every resource throughout this process." could esparza's size have played a role? >> she was no bigger than i was. that could have been me. >> reporter: safety experts say the seats are built for adults who weigh 180 pounds but the texas giant does not have a weight restriction.
7:14 am
>> the operators should absolutely be able to determine if a person's body mass fits correctly inside the riding compartment and the restraint mechanism correctly fits their body. >> reporter: the industry insists its rides are safe. estimating the chances of being injured, 1 in 24 million, the chance of being killed, 1 in 750 million. and six flags says it will not speculate at this point on what caused the accident. in the meantime, the texas giant will remain shut down until their investigation is complete. george? >> that is just horrifying. thanks very much, clayton, for that. now, to surging gas prices. on track to be the most expensive during the summer in five years. the national average this morning, now $3.67, up 6 cents from last week, 20 cents from a year ago. so, are we headed toward $4 a gallon gas? abc's rebecca jarvis is here with more and that's the burning question, rebecca. >> it is the burning question, robin. good morning, and this morning
7:15 am
americans in at least 13 major u.s. cities are paying $4 or more for a gallon of gas. take a look at this. from the east coast of the entire country in new haven, connecticut, to the middle of the country in chicago, illinois, where it's averaging $4.17 a gallon, to santa barbara california, where consumers are paying $4.16, we're seeing the pain across the country. how much higher? the experts are telling us we could see gas prices climb another 5 to 15 cents this summer. what's causing the uptick? well, typically, at this time of the year, if you take a look at this, we do see prices tend to rise because more people are hitting the roads on vacation. that uses up more gas. but this summer is specifically different because of tensions in egypt. egypt controls a big portion of the world's crude oil. they've been having problems there and that has been putting us on track for the most expensive summer in five years for gasoline, robin. >> all right, rebecca, thank you
7:16 am
very much. we have the double whammy because electric bills will go up too. >> all right. thank you. let's get over to josh elliott for our other top stories. good morning, josh. a lot to get to. we'll begin with that grisly discovery in ohio. the decomposing bodies of three women found wrapped in plastic trash bags. registered sex offender michael madison expected to be charged today. police have scoured 40 abandoned buildings in east cleveland worried that there may be more victims. investigators believe the suspect may have been influenced by a serial killer who was convicted in 2011 for the killing of 11 women. and thousands of people in more than 100 cities from coast to coast rallied this weekend in the name of trayvon martin. in new york, martin's mother, sybrina fulton, was joined by megastars, beyonce and jay z. now, despite his not guilty verdict they're demanding george zimmerman face civil rights charges in the teenager's death. and in australia, the u.s. navy is considering whether to salvage four unarmed bombs that
7:17 am
were dropped very close to the great barrier reef. two u.s. fighter jets dropped the bombs in error last week. the pentagon says there's been minimal impact on that very sensitive environmental site. and this morning, an incredible image of commuters pitching in to free a trapped subway rider. take a look at the photo here tweeted overnight shows dozens of passengers north of tokyo pushing against a car -- train car after a woman fell into the four-inch gap between it and the platform. now, thanks to all of them that woman was able to walk away unhurt. even more amazingly, the train was delayed only eight minutes. and finally, a stunning example of saving the best for last. it came sunday from american golfer phil mickelson. took his first-ever british open on a course in muirfield in scotland that was unforgiving. he birdied four of his last six holes, came home with a 66, you
