>> reporter: good morning, paula. this area is popular with photographers and residents say occasionally thrill-seekers will hop a fence to climb out onto that railway bridge. it is hundreds of feet high. this morning, one young man is dead and a young woman hospitalized and through the night investigators have been working to find out how and why 21-year-olds john gregoire and victoria bridges were on these tracks when a freight train slammed into the pair. >> i just hit kids on a bridge, train emergency on a bridge over. >> reporter: police say the group of four to six people were high up on a train trestle spanning lynchburg, virginia's, james river around 4:00 saturday afternoon. the norfolk southern crew saw three of them as the train approached. >> two of them on the south end of the bridge, one just a bystander, we hit one for sure. i'm not sure what happened to the other one over. >> reporter: gregoire was pronounced dead on the scene when rescue workers arrived. bridges was airlifted to a
nearby hospital with serious injuries. >> i heard a thump. one of them looked like a girl jumped. >> reporter: detectives tell abc news no foul play is suspected. but an investigation into why the group of friends was on the tracks is ongoing. gregoire's instagram profile offering one possible clue. this photo taken six days ago shows the nature lover and avid photographer posing on the very same railroad bridge where he lost his life. >> it's kind of becoming a problem with it -- they're pretty much playing russian roulette with their life. >> reporter: more than 700 people are killed or hurt each year in the u.s. when too close to railroad tracks. this morning, victoria bridges is fortunate not to be among that number. hospital officials say she is stable, alert and speaking with family members. paula. >> an unnecessary tragedy. bazi, thank you to you. we do turn now to the arctic blast which we mentioned earlier set to put more than 200 million americans in a prewinter deep freeze.
yes, it is november, but it's going to feel a whole lot like january. meteorologist rob marciano joining us from disneyland this morning where they're gearing up for the holiday season. good morning, rob. it's much warmer where you are. >> it is, i hear the chuckles behind you. more about why we're at disneyland in a second. but let's talk about that cold weather and the snow that's going to be coming in that you just mentioned. all right. they are prepping for it across the midwest, in wisconsin, the salt trucks, sand trucks, they are filling up. they're attaching the plows and you know what, it's been snowing on and off really there the past few days so the cold air already in place. it's going to get colder. hasn't been accumulating. it will. we have winter storm watches and warnings that go from the u.p. of michigan all the way back through montana really stretching about a thousand miles, so a lot of people in the mix here, and we're going to see quite a bit of snow. let's go through it with this storm meeting that cold air we've been mentioning all week long. we started in montana. tonight we drive it across to the east. reach ahead of itself. by this time tomorrow morning it will be snowing heavily across
minneapolis and st. paul. as far as snow amounts go, we could see up to a foot in some spots and there you see the forecast for that as we go through the next couple of days. so a significant storm falling there. and, of course, the cold air behind this and we're talking about windchills by thursday minus 19 in great falls, 10 degrees is what it will feel like in chicago and in the 20s across the deep south, so it is -- it's not unheard of to get snow this time of year across the northern plains but to get extreme cold air behind that, that is certainly unusual. and in sympathy, dan, of the cold air that's gripping much of the country, here in southern california at disneyland we are bringing in the cast of "frozen" later in the program. >> this is a sign of a wily meteorologist. you know that the cold weather is coming so you go to disneyland. i like it. smart. >> you know, there's a little chill down here too, dan. >> yeah, okay. well, all of our sympathy headed toward you, rob marciano. we appreciate it. much more from rob coming up later in the show. we are, meanwhile, covering another breaking story overnight. the surprise homecoming of two americans held in north korea.
there you can see them stepping off the plane overnight. their release was secured after a secret trip by this man, america's top spymaster, james clapper, who flew into enemy territory, the hermit kingdom of north korea, a hardline nuclear armed communist dictatorship run by the 31-year-old supreme leader kim jong-un. abc's tom llamas is on the story. tom, good morning. >> reporter: dan, good morning to you. we cannot stress enough how extraordinary this is that our nation's top intelligence official, the man who knows all the secrets, took the trip but mission accomplished and this morning, someone else is taking credit for the release, dennis rodman. >> thank you all for supporting me, lifting me up and not forgetting me. >> reporter: overnight kenneth bae and matthew todd miller stepping off this military plane and onto american soil for the first time since the surprise release of the last known americans in captivity in north korea. >> it's just hard to believe this day is finally here. >> it's been an amazing two
years, i learned a lot. i grew a lot, lost a lot of weight in a good way, but i'm standing strong. >> reporter: 45-year-old bae convicted of anti-government activities, then sentenced to 15 years, spoke to cnn about his living conditions. >> i'm working eight hours a day, six days a week. >> you're being treated humanely? >> yes. >> reporter: but his ailing heart became the center of international attention. his family lashing out at basketball star dennis rodman for his high-profile exhibition game with kim jong-un. >> he's a great guy. he is just a great guy. if you sit down and talk to him, you know, perception is perceiving how things -- >> a great guy who puts 200,000 people in prison camps? >> reporter: but this morning, rodman taking credit for bae's freedom posing for tmz with this letter he says was sent to the regime threatening to cancel future trips unless all americans were released. matthew miller, a 25-year-old who reportedly traveled to north
korea and then tore up his visa. the north korean government charged him with unruly behavior and held him for more than six months. >> i am now requesting help from the american governments to release me from this situation. >> reporter: on friday they announced the decision to release the men because they were, quote, sincerely repentant. >> north korea decides when they do something they want to do it for a particular purpose and i think right now they decided this was the right time to do this. >> and we do want to mention that matthew miller did not speak at that news conference. that's why we didn't hear from him. the president weighing in saying he is grateful for the safe return and praised clapper for what he called the challenging mission. dan. >> to put it lightly. all right. tom, thank you. for more let's bring in abc's chief anchor, george stephanopoulos, who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. >> hey, dan. >> good morning. we have to imagine that kim jong-un sanctioned the release of these two people. do you imagine that he is trying to create closer ties with america? >> very, very possible and, remember, the president
delivered a letter to kim jong-un, a personal letter from the president. that is, as you said, extraordinary to have the president's top spymaster go and deliver a letter from the president to the leader of north korea. now, the white house officials say this is only about the prisoner release. there's no other opening on no other issue right now, but does indicate that kim jong-un looking to either improve relations with the united states or release some of the pressure from the united nations which has been coming down hard on these prison camps in north korea. >> we, of course, don't know what's going on behind the scenes. now, you have interviewed dennis rodman. we saw a little bit of that there. it was a memorable exchange. i believe you went out and got a blazer with dollar bills on it afterwards. so, do you think when he claims that he played a role here that's a legit claim? >> no, i mean, you saw that letter he wrote. he wrote it back in january. and to his credit, at least he did say we're not going to go back unless you release prisoners, but this was really north korea taking the initiative deciding this was the time and the president seizing the moment as well willing to deliver that letter to a country that he had isolated in the
past. what it will be fascinating to see, if it leads to anything else and the president heading to asia right now with north korea's top patron having meetings with the leaders of china. >> let's talk domestic politics for a second. we're a few days out now from the drubbing that the president took from the midterms. where does this leave things for the 2016 white house race? who's up, who's down? >> wide open. big debate whether it hurts or helps hillary clinton. you argued it hurts because the democrats were so decimated. on the other hand, you could say this will now be easier for her to break free from president obama. on the republican side, it is wide open. everybody waiting for jeb bush but governor chris christie had a good election as the head of the republican governors association. people like john kasich, governor of ohio, scott walker, governor of wisconsin, all looking good coming out of this. it will be a free-for-all. >> for employment act. thank you, george. we should say that george will have much more coming up on this can and explore the impact of the midterm with our political correspondents and powerhouse
roundtable. that's later this morning right here on abc. thanks again, george. >> thanks, george. it is an important day in history. for that and more we turn to ron claiborne. >> that is right. good morning to you, paula and good morning, everyone. we begin with celebrations in germany marking 25 years since the berlin wall came down. former soviet leader mikhail gorbachev was on hand to commemorate the historic occasion, sort of a chain of events that brought down communism and which ultimately led to the reunification of east and west germany in 1990. thousands of balloons illuminating a nine-mile stretch of the former cold war barrier, the brandenburg gate, will be released later today. and also happening in the uk, britain's queen elizabeth is carrying on with tradition after a foiled terror plot in that country. her majesty was front and center during a remembrance day ceremony today at a monument honoring britain's war dead and marking the 100th anniversary of the start of world war i. the annual event took place amid heightened security, four suspects are being interrogated accused of hatching a terror attack on british soil. scotland yard is investigating
whether the queen herself was possibly a target. and you can add nissan to the growing list of automakers recalling vehicles because of faulty air bags that could send shrapnel flying when they open. several infiniti models, 2003 through 2006, are part of that recall so are some nissan pathfinders and sentras. the cars were sold in 12 high humidity states and territories. nearly 8 million cars from ten automakers they've been recalled from the takata air bags. and former pro football player mike vrabel is one angry fellow this morning. this after a burglar stealing all three of his super bowl rings. the former new england patriots linebacker is now a coach for the houston texans took to twitter saying to all houston area pawnshops, three super bowl rings are headed your way. courtesy of the expletive deleted who smashed our back door in. vrabel's wife admits she forgot
to set the alarm. shouldn't do that. a 4-year-old boy helped bring down this old 19-story hotel in atlanta, georgia. the building was leveled to make room for an expanded children's hospital. little d.j. pitts wearing his favorite superhero cape while doing this got to push the button sparking the implosion. should be in "pop news." he had undergone several surgeries at that hospital and says he always feels better wearing his cape as i do and he quickly became an inspiration to other kids undergoing treatment. finally, from the world of college football, i want you to check this out, an epically egregious error that ends ignominiously. no, not penn state losing to ohio state. this is utah versus oregon. utah receiver, kaelin clay, believe me, it happened. this will be a 78-yard touchdown pass, clay catches the ball. he's heading for the end zone. watch this. >> don't tell me he dropped it. >> he lets go of the ball
thinking he was in the end zone. there's confusion on the field for a little while. he thinks he scored a touchdown. celebrating in the end zone but the oregon players picked up the ball, ran back the entire length of the field, 178 yards total for a touchdown. oregon ended up winning that game, 51-27. look at this. he lets go of it, see, one yard short. >> you got to have the ball when you cross the plane. >> if you're going to spike the ball, wait till you're in the end zone. you know, they probably would have lost that game anyway. they got crushed by the oregon ducks in the end. >> that's right. definitely that won't haunt him the rest of his life. >> ever. >> no, no, he has other problems to come. bigger ones. >> thanks, ron. >> paula ignored that michigan state score. >> i did. i did. i tune most things out. we've been telling you about that mother and father saving their 5-year-old daughter after she was snatched out of her bedroom. new details this morning about that thwarted kidnapping. and how can you be sure your child is safe at home? abc's marci gonzalez is on the story. good morning, marci. >> reporter: so many parents talk to their kids about what to
do if a stranger approaches them on the street but experts say it's also a good idea to discuss what to do if it happens at home. explaining this little girl escaped unhurt because of a few really smart actions. new details this morning about this 5-year-old girl's close call. >> did he take you from the bedroom? did the man come in and take you? >> reporter: surviving an attempted kidnapping in her utah home this week in part because of a few things safety experts claim she and her parents did right. >> we heard the front door open and i heard her talking. she's just the sweetest little thing, and i heard her voice and we ran out. >> reporter: the girl taken from her basement bedroom making sure her parents heard her and like kidnapping survivor elizabeth smart, police say she stayed calm. >> in an abduction case, particularly if you're dealing with children is to direct them to be compliant but aware. >> reporter: what happened next in the edson family's case also crucial. >> if you can stop a kidnapping at the early stages of it, that
is the real key. >> reporter: the girl's mother telling 911 operators the girl's stepfather ran outside to confront the alleged abductor. according to a police report, morley then let the girl go and kept running. tracked by canine officers for nearly half a mile to another basement in tina olsen's home. >> he was just like right here, just kind of like this with no shirt on and trying to hide. >> reporter: this morning, records released by police reveal the alleged abductor was already under investigation for sexual assault and accused of a similar break-in earlier this year. the terrifying close call for this family finally landing morley behind bars. and police believe he broke into this girl's bedroom through an unlocked door so, along with making sure doors are always locked, experts also suggest having a baby monitor or something like that so parents can hear any noises and react quickly. >> it's a terrifying story.
marci, thank you. >> thank you. some strange sightings in the texas sky overnight. check this out. people capturing images of these fireballs streaking across the horizon. so, what's going on here. abc's michelle franzen explains. >> reporter: barreling through the night sky over san antonio, multiple sightings of mysterious fireballs and loud booms. >> we heard an explosion here on the 5-7. >> reporter: take a look at this. guy and karen parker were driving when they captured this bright streak on camera. >> it was real bright green kind of fireball-looking object in the sky. >> reporter: that big burning glow also caught on the dash cam of one local police officer out on patrol. police say they received at least 150 reports of a bright fireball zipping across the horizon from houston to dallas and down to san antonio. >> it looked like it went across like in towards mexico. >> reporter: just like the blazing sky, sightings lit up twitterverse too. scientists need to confirm if those streaks are from a meteor
so for now there is still a trail of misery. for "good morning america," michelle franzen, abc news, new york. >> okay, so here's a headline i never thought i'd deliver. this next story is about a baby shower for an orangutan. >> wait for it. yeah, the little one, a new arrival at the phoenix zoo, it's the perfect excuse to throw a party and a perfect story for sara. >> who else would -- >> could deliver this story. >> you got to start like this, what do you get when you take an orangutan, new baby and some good friends, baby shower and have to see it to believe it. it's a morning of celebration at the phoenix zoo. bess, proud mama to a new baby, is celebrating at her very own baby shower. friends and neighbors at the zoo chipped in to throw a baby shower in her honor along with her 6-week-old new baby. >> it's tough to get the orangutans to, you know, do the traditional baby shower games. >> reporter: but that didn't stop them from trying. according to the zoo, more than 10,000 people voted in an online
contest to pick the baby's name and in the last few hours, jiwa beat out duke by 1400 votes. all parents love to know the meaning of their baby's names. jiwa is indonesian for soul and zoo staff going bananas with the decorations, banners and streamers and a chance to indulge those ravenous cravings with a one-of-a-kind three-tiered ice cake filled with frozen fruit and, of course, what's a shower without presents? well, bess is off to a good start. she had a baby registry on amazon with a wish list that included all those new mom must haves, like blankets, towels, chalk, even some legos for little jiwa to play with. yep, she was registered. yep. >> but has jiwa met any of the disney characters? >> no. >> i think jiwa needs a trip to disney but maybe rob marciano can help us out with that. >> you think he's going to take an orangutan to disneyland?

across south florida's little wave kind of rolls down across miami. 79 degrees there but the heaviest rain will be across the keys and down across parts of southern florida. southern california, on the other hand, looks to be pretty dry. 79 degrees in los angeles, showers across parts of the pacific northwest, pleasant in dallas, 73 there. 58 degrees in nashville. that is a quick check of your national forecast from disneyland. >> mickey rocking his christmas sweater.

could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.
