what led her to rehab and almost cost her her life. why he says it's about blackmail. the abc exclusive interview this morning. what would you do if the entire room you were in started disappearing? the floors, walls, disappearing around you. did this extreme prank go too far into shocking you into shopping? and we do say good morning, america. a lot to get to this morning. and, george, as you just said, a second health care worker has tested positive for ebola. that's what we're seeing in dallas just moments ago. an all too familiar scene. hazmat teams swarming an apartment building. >> so much anxiety.
120 people are being monitored for symptoms. 11 with definite exposure. 114 with possible exposure. this is the second one infected in america. >> we have full team coverage and hear from the white house. but let's start with abc's tom llamas at the hospital. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning. we've just learned new information about that second health care worker infected with ebola. we know she's a woman. she did treat thomas eric duncan here at texas presbyterian. she's lives alone with no pets. this as doctors in dallas try to treat two ebola victims, two patients were their same hospital. overnight, a second health care work chore provided care for thomas eric duncan tested positive for ebola.
the unnamed patient in isolation at texas health presbyterian after reporting a fever. dallas police and fire rushing to this neighborhood just moments ago to begin the decontamination process of the latest patient's home. >> when i read here that the likelihood of contracting ebola is extremely low, it kind of concerns me, because right now, it's knock on my door. >> reporter: so far, two the 76 people responsible for duncan's care have tested positive for the virus. >> it may get worse before it gets better. >> reporter: this morning, alarming allegations from the national nurses union about working at texas health presbyterian. >> the nurses said there were no clear cut guidelines or protocols on how to provide care for the patient. >> reporter: union president deborah berger, telling us search texas health presbyterian nurses contacted them, wishing to remain anonymous, about
critical flaws in the way duncan arrived the the hospital with the ebola systems. they don't represent any nurse at the hospital, but those were wearing gloves with no taping around wrists and suits that exposed necks. and they could tape their necks. and facial masks were not necessary, some supervisors said. this information came from the cdc but didn't respond quick enough when he was diagnosed. >> i wish we would have put the team on the ground on the day he was diagnosed. overnight, her friends paying for her. as for the critical care nurse now upgraded to good condition. she's doing well and wants to thank everyone for kind wishes and prayer, adding i'm blessed
to be cared for by the best doctors and nurses in the world. despite dealing with a double infecti infection. there are no plans to move this new ebola patient or nina to somewhere else in the country. george? >> for more, joined by the secretary of health and human services, sylvia burr well. thank you for joining us. what do we know about the condition of the new patient. and given how wide the circle of contacts turned out to be, should we expect to hear about more ebola infections at the hospital? >> with regards to the new patient at the new confirmation with ebola, i'll leave that to the clinicians on the ground and also respect their privacy in terms of their choices about that information. with regard to the contact tracing we're doing from the first incident with mr. duncan, what we know is that there are 76 people that we are tracking closely. those are people that came in contact. because we don't understand exactly how the breach in protocol occurred, we are taking
the precaution of making sure that anyone who had contact in that treatment space will be tracked and monitored in a more serious way. >> so nurses at that hospital coming forward now talking about something far more than a breach in protocol. they are saying there were no protocols at all, insufficient protection, improper guidance. they say they feel unsupported, unprepared and lied to. is it fair to conclude there was a major breakdown at infection control at texas presbyterian and are you confident it has been fixed? >> with regard to the steps that we're taking and were announced yesterday by director frieden, there's been a number of additional steps that have been put in place. and that includes adding nurses put in place. and that includes adding nurses that have come from emory to do peer-to-peer training for the nurses and also in addition we have added further training with regard to the protocols. we have given direction.
there is flexibility within the protocols dependent on patient and clinical setting. although this point, the cdc gave direction. and there is a 24/7 site manager for oversight of taking on and taking off of the protective equipment that health care workers have wearing at texas presbyterian. >> finally, madam secretary, we heard the world health organization say yesterday we could see 10,000 new cases a week around the world. does the u.s. agree, and what needs to be done to get this epidemic under control? >> with regard to the sense of urgency, i think everyone is feeling the sense of urgency and the importance of containing it onsite in west africa. that's very important to our own domestic preparedness and making sure we fight this. right now, whether that's the president and the communication he's doing with leaders and all of u-and the department of defense, the state department, usaid, working in the whole of government, full-court press, working an that issue at the same time with the domestic preparedness. >> thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you.
and abc's chief medical editor, dr. richard besser is here now with more on this. and knowing, texas presbyterian is a good hospital. it's a very good hospital. tom llamas referring to it as a general hospital. and people are question, and you have all along, is it capable of taking care of patients like this? >> i don't think it is. i think that's the fundamental mistake here. when you have someone with ebola, you want them taken care of in a place where they specialize in that. you can't just give people suits. sounds like here, they weren't even given proper suits. but you can't give people suits and make sure they use them properly and safely. >> six weeks ago the military was building containment units. where do we stand? >> i was there two weeks ago, and they hadn't broken ground. and the idea you can take a slow approach on this is very frightening. the numbers from the world health organization are scary. if they can't build quickly and get patients treated, it's going to continue to spread. >> the numbers that george referred to are scary. people are waking up, okay, this
is the second one. and there is this natural concern about it being widespread. >> i'm hearing this fear. and if i were a health care worker who was taking care of mr. duncan, i would be worried, but for the rest of america, they're not at risk of getting this disease. >> how does the cdc, you were there before joining us here at abc news, how do they regain the public's trust? >> it was a big step yesterday when they said they made a big mistake, should have gotten there sooner. what they need to think about hard is getting the patients to specialized units where they know how to take care of this kind of disease safely. >> you're heading to dallas? >> i am. i'm going right after the show. turn now to the two major storms, one on each coast. a major hurricane barrelling toward bermuda, and tropical storm picking up speed as it closes in on hawaii. >> start with hurricane gonzalo. that's in the atlantic.
this is what it looks like over antigua and now it's a major hurricane. category 3, winds of 125 miles per hour. all over water now. should strengthen to a category 4 later today. that would make it the strongest hurricane in the atlantic in three years. so it's been a while since we've seen something like this, and bermuda is on hurricane watch. friday is the day we'll be watching it pass by or over bermuda, and that leaves us in the atlantic. we've got to head to the pacific. because that's where our attention turns also on friday, for hawaii. tropical storm, ana, should strengthen into a hurricane later today. pass right over hawaii as we go through the weekend. two huge headlines, both coasts. and we have strong storms in the mid-atlantic and northeast. >> you're on top of it. and the other top stories. good morning, everyone. and we begin with a big scare overnight for passengers on a tour bus driving down interstate 95 in connecticut. all of a sudden a man with a knife started attacking people. seconds later the driver was forced to take action.
this coach bus carrying dozens of passengers to a casino overnight, when violence breaks out. a man starts stabbing people in the seats. the driver, hearing the commotion, makes a bold move, pulling over in this construction zone, flagging down a state trooper. but that's when things became more violent. >> once the suspect realized the trooper was close by, started advancing to the trooper with the cutting instrument. the trooper was forced to draw his service weapon, fire, and struck the suspect. >> police saying they had no choice but to open fire. but one bullet apparently ricocheted off the pavement. >> nix, the trooper did in fact strike a witness with one of the rounds. >> that witness expected to be okay. and stunned passenger evacuating the bus, grateful for the drivers quick thinking. now the suspect later died. two people stabbed on the bus are in the hospital. their condition is not immediately released. the motive for the attack, though, remains unclear.
the supreme court is stepping in to allow abortion clinics in texas to reopen. the court is blocking a state law that had imposed strict requirement on abortion providers. but the legal fight is far from over. an appeals court is deciding whether that law as a whole is constitutional or not. and trouble ahead for democrats in the next month's midterm elections, according to a poll, president obama's approval rating has plunged to a new low of 40%. that's the same of president bush's approval rating back in 2006 before democrats swept the mid term elections. nascar is handing down punishments for this brawl that broke out saturday after a race. driver tony stewart now facing a $25,000 fine for backing into another driver. his rival, brad keselowski faces a fine of $50,000. and finally, the video that's blowing up the internet this morning. as you know, first lady michelle
obama often works with children in her vegetable garden. this time, she is pushing one of her favorite veggie, the turnip. now singing the hit rap classic "turn down for what." >> turnip for what. turnip for what. >> love the head nod. she posted the video after someone online asked her, how many calories do you burn every time i turn up. and now there are turnip people memes. halloween turnips. >> it's just endless what we can do. >> what to do with brussel sprouts? >> who knows. >> it's kind of hard to carve a brussel sprout. >> you guys weren't here when michael strahan was yelling, "turn up for what." and we were all -- thank you. and now to the high school hazing scandal rocking a new jersey town.
some team members making their first appearance in court on tuesday. and this morning, we're hearing from ra former player. linsey davis has the latest on this. >> reporter: the player shared, that was key. and now the football program in jeopardy, how long has this going on is the key question for investigators. the same players who would be gearing up for football practice, suiting up instead for court. several of the seven football players facing criminal charges in the sexual hazing case plaguing sayreville high school. making their first appearances in family court tuesday. the accused players now suspended and football season canceled indefinitely as they're trying to figure out what happened in past years. >> everyone knew that if we did something wrong, we would have been he would accountable. there would have been consequences.
>> reporter: 2006 graduate and former football player matt hammond says he remembers joking around, but no hazing. >> there was a consistent respect for everybody in the locker room. there may have been jokes cracked. nobody was ever laughing at you. it was all about laughing with you. >> reporter: he points out the unique layout of the athletic facility. the coaches' offices, quite a distance from the locker room where the alleged hazing may have happened, making it hard for the coaches to see what was going on. >> the guy i think i know, if something like this had happened, he would have said or done something about it. >> reporter: this morning, a glimpse of george najjar's interaction after the powerhouse football team's final game on september 27th. >> one thing, we will not do when we leave this facility is hang our heads. i don't want to see anybody hanging their heads. >> reporter: it's unclear if the teens that were arrested are being held or they are now back with their parents. while the prosecutor confirmed some appeared in family court
yesterday, he would not say if he will charge them as adults. which would be pivotal. >> thank you so much. and another beat with lara. a dramatic rescue thanks to an iphone app and really quick thinking. a police officer came to the rescue after a california woman was saved. she was at the bottom of a ravine. trapped overnight after driving off the road. and aditi roy has the story. >> reporter: this morning, the grateful family of melissa vasquez, air lifted to safety after being trapped at the bottom of a 500-foot ravine, speaking out. >> we want her to be okay. >> reporter: the dramatic rescue all thanks to an app on her phone helped save her life. she veered off a steep and windy mountain road monday. the car landing on the roar, flinging the 20-year-old woman to the ground, her cell phone out of reach. her onstar device alerting authorities she had been in a crash, but led them to the wrong location. after her mother reported her

aka, dr. luke. claiming physical and emotional abuse she claims led her to rehab and nearly cost her life. in a new lawsuit filed tuesday, he started abusing her at 18. alleging he continuously made sexual advances towards her. and on one occasion allegedly plied her with the date rape drug ghb to assault her. and called her a fat expletive refrigerator. and saying you are nothing without me. in addition to a variety of damages, she wants to be released from her recording deals with his companies. >> according to the lawsuit, during the two months in rehab where she talked about the relationship, the doctor's official report said if they continued a relationship, it would hurt her health.

now. you heard the countersuit, your response. >> legally, it's amateurish. >> why? >> but not unexpected. you can't have defamation in a lawsuit. you have legal immunity. putting that aside, doesn't really matter. the lawsuit itself and the filing of is just a conuation of what he's been doing. he is somebody who's got way too much money for his own good. he has basically emotionally tortured this young lady for going on ten years. and she's finally to the brink where almost putting her into rehab -- putting her into rehab, almost killing her. and at this point, she's healthy enough to stand up to him. >> tortured, almost killing her, why not file criminal charges? >> everything is on the table. she's ready, willing and able to fight back. the idea that it's extortion is laughable. what she wants is him out of her life. >> these cases, so often he said, she said, how do you back
it up. >> you look at the lawsuit. we have 27 pages. it's detailed in enormous detail. we have witnesses, we have evidence, we have fresh complaint. we have everything we need to do and very comfortable. >> this goes back a long time. what do you say to skeptics, why now? why not earlier? >> that's feeling that now people are more accepting of it, number one. the public, the idea that this could happen. but i think even more importantly, she's at a place she's strong enough to make it work. that she can stand up to him. this is a frightening thing to go through. the date rape, the years of mental and emotional abuse. those are things that i think anybody, especially at her age, when all of this started, would be devastating by. are you saying now if the -- if she's let go from the contract, this all goes away? >> i'm saying we want her out of -- we want him out of her life. if that means out of the contract, that's fine.
but protective orders are on the we want him literally held accountable. >> you're not going to try to file criminal charges if she's let out of the contract. >> i can't get into a quid pro quo for that. everything is on the table. this is unfortunately emblematic of the music industry. this is a bigger story. she's here and strong enough to champion it. >> how is kesha doing now? >> it's interesting. she's had a lot of trepidation about this. but she's strong. when i talked with her yesterday, i thought she was enormously resilient about this. she's in a good place. >> okay, mark ergos, thanks very much. and start in the pacific northwest, unsettled. seattle might hear thunder, anywhere in the pacific northwest. it's cool and showery. all you have to do to warm up is fly over the rockies. settle in denver, and 83, maybe
