this morning, "the norwegian dawn" stopped. after striking ground two miles off the coast of bermuda. nearly 3500 people on board left high and dry. >> we felt the ship shudder for maybe about 10, 15 seconds. and then all of a sudden, there was an abrupt stop. you could tell the ship had stopped moving. >> reporter: the ship on a seven day cruise losing all power after leaving bermuda tuesday night, reportedly getting stuck on part of a coral reef. rachel thinking they might have to abandon ship. >> my family and i went to our cabins. got personal items, our cell phones and passports. >> reporter: the power restored. but the ship still stuck. smaller boats swarming the ship, inspecting it for damage. this tugboat tugging out to try to nudge the ship loose. six hours later with high tide coming in, this 1,000-foot-long city on the sea was dislodged and moved to a location nearby

sending shrapnel into the bag and into the car. cory lost sight after his air bag exploded. >> i thought i was going to die. >> abc news has been following this recall from the start. >> can you tell us why you're not expanding the recall. >> this morning we're learning some alarming details about the bag inflaters already recalled. the company tested more than 30,000. and nearly 1 out of every 100 sent shrapnel flying when it was ignited. the government says it could take a couple of years to replace all the air bags recalled. it's not sure if the new inflaters used as part of the recall will be safe in the long run. it will test the replacements, too. >> there will be a test to ensure that the final remedy will be safe. period. >> reporter: takata, which for so long refused to acknowledge the scope of the problem, says it's pleased to reach the agreement with the u.s. government. u.s. authorities will be intimately involved in the
recall and whether those replacement bags will work in the long term. robin? >> thank you, david. now to the latest on a major oil spill. thousands of gallons flowing into the pacific from a broken pipeline spreading over four miles of coastline near santa barbara. abc is there with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a not so good morning for campers here. this is a popular state beach. but this is what they're seeing this morning on the rocks and on the sand. this thick, gooey, oil all over the place. as beach-goers prepares for the unofficial start for the summer season a scary scene. that is crude oil washing ashore near santa barbara tuesday. a nearby oil pipeline springing a leak sending 27,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. dying the sands and waters black. and putting animals at risk. this bird smothered in the muck.
whales into is area. beach-goers forced to evacuate. >> we thought we would stay and then we were told that by the state parks that we're going to have to take off. >> reporter: officials able to shut down the pipeline and stop the spill. >> the pipeline is secured. so no additional fuel is leaking from that pipeline. the responsible party has enacted their emergency response plan. >> reporter: the beach closed indefinitely as the race to clean up all that begins. for some residents it may be too little too late. >> it's a disaster. can't bring my kids here for six months maybe. a year. i don't know. >> reporter: high tide expected around mid day and expected to bring a lot of the oil back on to these rocks and on the sand. cleanup crews starting to get the work done. robin. >> thank you. >> to the race for the president now and hillary clinton taking

the presidential candidate promising to work for the middle class, as bill and hillary clinton raked in $25 million. giving speeches around the world. >> you are in the tiptop echelon of earners in the country. how do you expect everyday americans to relate to you? >> bill and i have been blessed. we never forgot where we came from. most americans understand that the deck is stacked for those at the top. i'm running a campaign that is clearly stating, we want to reshuffle the deck. >> reporter: a 28-day silence ended with six questions. >> do you regret deleting 32,000 other e-mails? >> reporter: she didn't answer all those. is this the new hillary clinton on the campaign trail? probably not. her campaign tells us the focus is on the voters, not the candidate. >> no sense she'll take questions more regularly? >> reporter: probably not. this is still the ramp-up phase. until that is over, probably no big press conferences. now to amy with the other top stories.

your life. >> it's incredible. you never think -- i never thought in a million years i would be capable of doing anything like that. this whole experience and being able to be partnered with val has shown me that anyone is capable of doing anything. you have to have the willingness to go out and try. >> third time's the charm for you. your first championship. >> fourth, actually. >> you and rumer seemed to have a connection from the beginning. what was the key for you to bring out the best in her, the confidence we saw? >> the first time i met her, there was such a -- there was this -- there was like this -- sense of gratitude in her eyes in everything that she did and everything that she said to me. and, you know, she was just so excited to do this show. i asked her the first meeting, i was like, are you sure? really? it's going to be tough. just how genuinely enthusiastic she was. she said, i want to learn how the dance and hopefully make a new friend. that's all i want.

you do a terrific job each and every season. [ cheers and applause ] and allison, they wanted more intensity out of riker. how were you able to tap into that and make that happen? >> you know, obviously from week one, with riker, he had such a natural ability to dance. and he just understood the movement so well. the musicality. we adapted so well to the fun dances and energetic things. so to pull a deeper side of him at first was tough. because of the struggle of finding that inside of him, that's what was real on the dance floor. i think us trying to find that inside him shined on the dance floor. he did an amazing job with all of his dances. every single one of them were so different. dynamic. i'm so proud of his journey. it was incredible the entire season. >> and sharna, you pulled so much out of noah as well. we were all blown away by the final dance. so much emotion.

because it's wonderful each and every week. the back stories we saw. and the way you are able to -- man, you can dance, noah. >> he doesn't believe me yet. he really can. >> how did you do that? >> how did you do that? >> every week was a different challenge to find what that dance was for noah. and we had to discover it. sometimes it was more difficult than others. what was so difficult was he allowed me to tell his story through dance. there's nothing more truthful than that. people connected to seeing that and seeing him overcome his struggles every week. it was beautiful to be a part of. >> it was wonderful. everyone allowed their emotions to come out. and it really -- at home, i gotta tell you, with the popcorn, and wine, watching you all, it was so much fun. and you even shed a tear, my friend. it was the first time on camera we saw you shed a tear, val. >> this season. and it was the first time for a lot of things for me.
and i, like i said, i feel like she made me feel comfortable enough to be able to open up and be myself and not be so guarded. and i have to thank her for it. she's a beautiful person. yeah, it's cool. >> and you really opened up as well, rumer. you talked about how you had felt awkward and gotten bullied online for your looks. this really changed the way you see yourself, or did it? i should ask, i shouldn't say. >> i mean, i think one of the most incredible things about this whole show and being on this show is the incredible response that i got from people about sharing my story. and that's who this mirrorball is for. honestly. is for everyone who ever felt like they weren't good enough or felt like they couldn't accomplish something. you can. even if you don't feel like you're beautiful every day or you feel like you look bad, you can do something. you work hard, put your whole heart into it, you totally can. >> you did that. we saw that with each week to see the growth. >> we have breaking news here.

[ cheers and applause ] >> maks, last year's champion. are you starting a dynasty here? >> dynasty, i don't know. the reality is that the best part about this show for me was always to be able to share the stage with my brother and, you know, i'm so grateful to rumer for the opportunity to now share, you know, the common bond of being "dancing with the stars" champions together. it means a lot to my family. next weekend, june 5th and 6th, we're going to be performing together with maks and tony. rumer will be joining me. i'm very excited about that. >> all right. >> and, yeah, just to share the stage with the people that i love means the world to me. >> it's wonderful. we have special messages for you, too.

some say holding kids back is taking things a bit too far. a look at the fascinating story we got from our friends at espn "outside the lines." the nfl's number one draft pick jam miswip ston chosen by the tampa bay buccaneer, famously red-shirted in college. >> sacked at the 30 yard line by the freshman corner brian fields. >> reporter: that guy tackling him, brian fields he also red shirted. according to a report by espn's jt outside the line" fields didn't do it in college. he did it in eighth grade. >> take out the athletic part of it if we say, we repeetd eighth grade because he struggled in math. no one would have a problem with it. you throw sports into it some people have a problem with it. what we looked at was, you get very few opportunities in life that you can manufacture time.
we were in a position and had the opportunity to give him another year to work toward achieving his goal. >> reporter: the trend of redshirting in grade school is happening more and more. parents gaming the system so their kids can have a competitive edge. this little leaguer in west virginia held back by his dad. >> got everything, helmet glove, right? >> yep, it's in the bag. >> reporter: troy anthony repeated kindergarten. the boy's future as an athlete was key. >> it was a big factor. i would be lying if i said it wasn't. >> one concern about redshirting, it sets a precedent for a doid play's puts pressure on them to do something they might not want to do. >> i hate to be cast as a sports villain, you know what i mean. if he chooses to be a participant in sports and wants to pursue we want to give him an opportunity to excel in sports. i think that i have done that so
far. >> reporter: sports professionals are not convinced it gives an advantage. >> if you're the smallest one, you have to be faster. that might teach you how to be a superior athlete. a better athlete. a better player. if you're always the biggest player, there's not as much impetus for you to make those creative solutions. >> reporter: and there are other things to consider as well. a study done by researchers at texas and usc finds that kids who redshirted for any reason were twice as likely to drop out of high school. >> that's huge. >> back in the day, if kids were going the get bet, they played up. that paradigm is completely shifted. >> i never heard that. a lot more dancing ahead. they're getting ready to perform the big number right here in
