7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight, washout. dangerous flash flooding slams the east coast. that powerful pattern of storms that put texas underwater turns roads into rivers in an instant. drivers lose control of their car, some vehicles completely submerged and take a look at this. a bolt of lightning strikes and more storms on the way. abc news exclusive. security shocker. a frightening new report revealing dangerous weapons making it through airport checkpoints. screeners failing to spot almost every explosive and gun in a new sting raising serious questions about safety in the air. crane crash. a cable snaps on this huge crane over manhattan sending a massive four-ton air-conditioning unit plunging 30 stories to the treat taking a huge chunk out of this building and crushing cars below. >> cars destroyed.
7:01 am
i hope nobody is hurt. >> seven people injured on the ground. what caused it to snap? and enrique iglesias not able to escape. the singer injured by a drone during a concert in front of thousands of fans. >> i feel numb. i feel numb. >> his crew struggles to stop the bleeding backstage but the wounded star finished the show before heading to the hospital. the latest on his condition. and good morning, america. we hope you had a good weekend. it was a scary one for enrique iglesias. you saw that right there. that drone is actually part of his act. going to be okay but we'll show you what is supposed to happen in just a little bit. >> but the show must go on. >> he did just that. that's ahead but we begin with that storm slamming the east overnight. torrential rain leading to flash
7:02 am
flooding from the mid-atlantic to the northeast. it's part of that same pattern that hit the south so hard and ginger is tracking it all and starts us off. >> training thunderstorms so talking up to 5 inches of rain falling in parts of new jersey to connecticut in just two to three hours. you know you'll have issues then. this morning the heaviest through to long island into new england and chaos is far from done. overnight flash flooding soaking the northeast from virginia to new york. >> i didn't know if it was ever going to stop. >> staten island getting 4.5 inches in 2 hours. >> we're swimming. i don't think my tires are on the road. >> in new jersey, heavy equipment pushing drivers out. this pickup hydroplaning all over the road. >> caught me off guard. didn't really notice it. >> some cars submerged. many abandoning their vehicles. rescuers searching by boat in this new jersey suburb and with all that torrential rain,
7:03 am
lightning. that is new york's one world trade center getting struck and check out this incredible bolt of lightning in mississippi last week. caught on police dash cam video, the officer said it was blinding. texas still recovering from record rainfall. the skies may be clear but not the roads. more than 30 people in texas and oklahoma lost their lives. ten still missing. flood warnings along the trinity river remain in effect in the dallas area today. and here in the northeast this is what's happening now. although it looks like this is moving east we've got a stationary front meaning it's not going to move much. the next 24 hours we're on flash flood watch from rhode island all the way back to washington, d.c. so it's not quite done yet. just don't want you to get that impression. there will be rounds of storms that come through dumping 2 to 3 inches and locally heavier amounts from boston back through hartford right here in new york city. i'll have much more coming up on what happens behind this, a little tidbit, a tease.
7:04 am
cold. >> great. we got a sloppy day ahead. those two big security headlines overnight. after a dramatic intense showdown late into the night the senate allowed a key part of the patriot act to expire. you see rand paul of kentucky, he blocked an extension of the program that allows the government to collect americans' phone records to help hunt for terrorists. lawmakers will take up a revised version later this week. abc news exclusive, the alarming new report revealing just how easy it is to get weapons through airport security checkpoints. abc's pierre thomas in washington with that. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning. we're learning tsa screeners at numerous airports failed when put to the test by undercover agents trying to beat the system. abc news has learned that tsa screeners recently failed 95% of tests designed to see if marked explosives or weapons could be smuggled through airport security checkpoints. the series of tests conducted by homeland security red teams who pose as passengers setting out
7:05 am
to beat the system. according to officials briefed on the results, tsa agents failed 67 out of 70 tests when red team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints. sources tell us in one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm in a magnetometer but screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat-down. homeland security jeh johnson was so frustrated he went to tsa headquarters in arlington, virginia, for a briefing about the findings. this morning the statement from the department of homeland security "upon learning the initial findings of the office inspector general's report, secretary johnson immediately directed tsa to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report." homeland security officials insist that security at the nation's airports is strong. that there are layers of security including bomb-sniffing
7:06 am
dogs and other technology seen and unseen but the officials we spoke to admit these were disappointing results. george. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. as we said the patriot act will likely get reauthorized later this week. >> we'll see. we turn to a frightening scene on the streets of new york city after a crane cable snapped sending a massive air-conditioning unit plunging nearly 30 stories, seven people were injured and abc's tom llamas is at the scene of the accident for us. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. eyewitnesses say it sounded like an explosion and that piece of equipment the size of a shipping container. look where it fell from, 300 feet from high above. you can see where it started to fall as it made its path falling from the sky and hitting the street. this morning, city offs vowing to figure out what caused a crane cable to snap over midtown manhattan dropping a massive four-ton air-conditioning unit. the unit smashing into a building as it tumbled 30
7:07 am
stories to the city street. >> i looked out the window and i saw a plume of smoke. the street was not visible because there was so much smoke like a bomb hit madison avenue. >> reporter: he was watching tv in his apartment across the street when the accident happened. he shot this cell phone video. >> cars are destroyed. i hope nobody is hurt. >> reporter: the crane mishap left a gaping hole in one building. office chairs falling out and ending up on the sidewalk. cars along the street were hit with chunks of debris. >> heard an initial crash and rapid almost like firecrackers going off. >> reporter: two construction workers and eight others suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. new york city has a history of deadly crane accidents. in april a man inspecting part of a crane died when a mechanical failure caused the boom crane to collapse on him. and in 2008 a crane came crashing down flattening a town house and killing seven people. this morning, residents feeling
7:08 am
shaken up as crews work to clear the destruction. and just behind me you can see and hear some of the cleanup and the investigation which will not be helped by this bad weather. robin. >> all right there. thank you, tom. we turn to another scary accident. this one at los angeles international airport where an out-of-control car smashed into one of the terminals critically injuring a 9-year-old girl. abc's ryan owens is at l.a.x. with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. you see that plywood behind me. that's the place where the driver slammed into the terminal. he barely missed crowds of passengers but as you said, he did hit that little girl. >> crashed into the window. he crashed into the wall. how is he going that fast? >> reporter: tragedy at the terminal. three are injured including a 9-year-old girl after a driver plows through this wall at l.a.x. one of this country's busiest airports. authorities believe the 67-year-old man behind the wheel of his porsche was dropping off
7:09 am
a passenger here at terminal 7 sunday evening when he confused his gas pedal with his brake. >> the little girl was flying through the air. she clearly hit her head. she was unconscious, everybody was yelling for a doctor. >> reporter: the 9-year-old who was on the curb with her mother and siblings when she was hit is still in critical condition this morning. the driver and his male passenger were both injured, as well. but not seriously. investigators aren't sure how fast he accelerated but his luxury sports car ended up deep in a supply room, just above a stairwell. where this tsa agent was storing his bicycle. >> looks like i'll be using the bus for awhile. >> reporter: this morning police do not believe the driver was under the influence at all. again, they just think this was a terrible accident. one that, robin, could have been a whole lot worse. >> all right, ryan, thank you. now we remember beau biden, tributes pouring in for the vice
7:10 am
president's beloved son who died after facing brain cancer. beau was just 46 years old. the two shared as you know a very special bond and abc's jim avila is in washington with more. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the biden family remains in seclusion, no public appearances scheduled and no announcement yet on when the funeral will happen for beau biden, the vice president's son who died of brain cancer over the weekend. joe biden, back at his family compound in delaware today, no public appearances scheduled as democrats and republicans paid tribute to his son, beau, the former delaware attorney general who died over the weekend at just 46. >> i would just like to express my sincere condolences to the entire biden family. >> reporter: the family bond forged by tragedy. the boys injured, their mother and sister taken in a fatal car crash when beau was just 3 years old. just two days before announce that beau was in the hospital his father had these emotional words. >> incredible bond i have with
7:11 am
my children is a gift i'm not sure i would have had had i not been through what i went through. >> reporter: beau biden's bright future could only be stopped by a five year battle with brain cancer. at his bedside when he died, the vice president his wife jill and daughter-in-law hallie, now mourning. joe and beau's tight relationship on display back in 2008 when the son introduced the father at the democratic convention. >> my friend, my father, my hero, the next vice president of the united states. >> reporter: a genuine moment greatly cherished by the vice president. >> father knows he's a success when he turns and looks at his son or daughter and know they turned out better than he did. i'm a success. i'm a hell of a success. beauie, i love you. i'm so proud of you. >> here at the white house,
7:12 am
president obama canceled all events last night to visit the bidens at the official residence of the vice president just up the road here a ways. the president said that beau biden had, in fact, been a frequent visitor at the white house, a close friend and a man of honor. george. >> jim, thanks very much. we send our condolences to the entire biden family. we turn to the race for the president and exclusive interview with hillary clinton's latest challenger, martin o'malley kicked off his campaign this weekend with a direct shot at clinton and jeb bush for their ties to wall street. take a look. >> the ceo of goldman sachs let his employees know that he'd be just fine with either bush or clinton. i bet he would. [ laughter ] well, i've got news for the bullies of wall street, the presidency is not a crown to be passed back and forth by you between two royal families. >> reporter: and governor o'malley joins us now. thanks for joining us.
7:13 am
bush and clinton are birds of a feather. >> this is what i believe. i believe that the presidency is a sacred trust and i believe that we are best served by giving the choice of who our president should be to the people of the united states and not to the big banks on wall street. >> you think they have that choice right now. >> i believe when the ceo of goldman sachs says he'd be just fine with either bush or clinton that should be a wake-up call for all of us. we still haven't delivered on the promise of reining in excesses on wall street and our entire economy still vulnerable to that. >> i know you called secretary clinton right before you announced. did you tell her this was coming and how did she respond? >> i told her we would have a robust discussion about the issues that face our country. how do we make the american dream real for more family not only in terms of investing in our country again but reining in the sort of excesses that led to millions losing their homes and people losing their jobs. we still haven't delivered 0en that promise as a party and we need to. >> president obama's close adviser david axelrod tweeted o'malley is a dynamic accomplished guy but all in for
7:14 am
hillary in 2008, so isn't it a bit awkward to rail against royal families now? how do you respond to that? >> i was for secretary clinton in 2008 and she and i both worked hard to elect and re-elect the president but times change and different challenges require new leadership. >> did you change or did she change? >> i believe the times changed. here's the big intervening fact that happened between 2008 and now. that is the crash that was precipitated by reckless behavior on wall street that caused millions of americans to lose their jobs and cratered our economy and now people are earning less than they were, 70% of us earning less as americans than we were before the crash. we still have work to do. and in order to solve these problems and overcome these challenges i believe we need new leadership and most importantly that's the phrase i've heard from people all over the country, they say we need to get things done again and we need new leaders. >> you know, "the wall street journal" took aim at your own record in an editorial. as governor they say you have a record of tax hikes and slow economic growth as governor. >> actually i have a record of a
7:15 am
aaa bond rating and the best public schools and highest median income of any state in america and better rate of job creation than our neighbors to the fort and to the south of us and the u.s. chamber of commerce which as you know hardly ever says nice things about democratic elected officials anywhere named our state number one for innovation and entrepreneurship three years in a row. i'm a progressive leader and i also get things done and that's what 15 years of executive experience brings to the table. >> finally a lot of americans may not know you play in a rock 'n' roll band and played a little guitar "hail to the chief" as you had a video right before you announced. will we see that more on the trail? >> it's interesting, when i go through iowa and new hampshire, the guitar seems to fall out of the rafters from someplace. i enjoy music and i'm looking forward to connecting with people throughout our country about the better future we want for our kids. >> governor, thanks for coming on. >> thanks, george. amy has the other top stories and this breaking news in the war on isis.
7:16 am
>> new video in. iraq's government saying this shows the iraqi fighter jets bombing armored vehicles and hideouts used by isis fighters. these air strikes part of the new offensive to retake the city of ramadi. meanwhile, there is word that isis captured more than 2,000 humvees during the fall of mosul alone. new controversy over who shot that passenger plane out of the sky over ukraine. an independent analysis has found the russian government digitally altered satellite photos to implicate ukraine's military for shooting down malaysia airline flight 17 last july. 198 people were killed. secretary of state john kerry returning to the u.s. after breaking his leg during a bike crash in the alps. the fracture is near the location of his hip replacement which could complicate his recovery. and more fal scandal over dennis hastert. his alma mater has removed its name from its public policy center.
7:17 am
he is accused of violating banking laws and lying to the fbi while allegedly paying hush money to cover up sexual misconduct. sources say there is now a second accuser allegedly victimized by hastert during his time as a high school teacher. a wild crash north of the border. look at this car flying over a row of cars before slamming into an auto repair shop in canada. the driver apparently hit the gas instead of the brake. he is expected to be okay. and finally police near detroit took quite a ham into custody. the perp got loose wreaking havoc. it was a neighbor's pig who you can see smiling there for his mug shot through the back window as the cops drove him away during the short trip. he turned the police into an absolute pigsty. cops till managed to bring home the bacon. >> oh, no. >> safely to his owner. it's monday. >> he looks like a real ham, amy. >> it's monday pun-day.
7:18 am
>> lara just helped you out. >> a specialty. >> thank you, amy. oh, this -- i feel so bad for our audience braving these conditions. >> yeah, rain is not over. you have to see these brand-new pictures we got in from newark, new jersey. fish stranded in the storm drains, a lake that overflows and the fish there did get out. i want to make sure everybody knows good samaritans took them back to the lake. that's the type of problem you end up with once the flooding is gone like they did in wimberley, texas, the cars parked there from the flooding on the house and in the trees. all right. that's the big picture.
7:19 am

he's holding on for dear life. that's in just a few minutes. >> really appreciate that, george. >> what the extras are saying about the film. also tips what you can do to stay safe in an earthquake. we begin with enrique recovering after that close encounter with a drone slicing open his hand during a concert and the drone was all part of his act. abc's t.j. holmes here with that. >> yeah, robin, he is on his world tour called the sex and love tour. it needed doctors and nurses on saturday night. he caught this drone in his hand like you said a part of the show but mishandled it. that's when this nasty injury took place and would not stop bleeding. he would not stop singing. this morning enrique iglesias is recovering from a freak accident involving a drone during his live concert in tijuana, mexico, saturday. the 40-year-old singer slicing
7:32 am
his hand open in front of 12,000 fans. things appear to be going just fine. iglesias was in the middle of singing "escape." this video from a fan capturing that frightening moment when his hand gets caught in the sharp rotating blade. >> one of the biggest risks of using drones would obviously be if the drone were to malfunction but if it's going to be used more and more it's here to stay. >> reporter: take a look at this video from a previous performance showing what was supposed to happen. the superstar grabs the drone, spins around with it before letting it shoot up into the air capturing these magnificent aerial shots among a cloud of confetti but not this time. watch as iglesias tries to hold the drone steady with his left hand then brings his right hand up and quickly tosses it to the ground. iglesias immediately rushed backstage. his crew struggles to stop the bleeding. >> do i have blood everywhere? >> reporter: he tells them i couldn't feel the pain. >> i feel numb. i feel numb ♪ i can be your hero baby ♪
7:33 am
>> reporter: but the chart-topping hero decides the show must go on. ♪ soldiering on with his hand till bleeding through the bandage for the next 30 minutes. yeah, it looks nasty there. get this. he is not going to miss a tour date. his next tour, wasn't scheduled until july. the 1st of july so gets time to recovered. what we didn't show you there was so much blood he actually drew a heart with his own blood on his shirt. >> no. >> as a symbol of his love to his audience, sure, but it was a nasty, very serious injury. we haven't gotten an official update but it was pretty bad. >> something to keep in mind of we've been talking a lot about drones. >> i've done the same thing and am always very careful. they're frightening. >> he's done it before. goes well when it works. didn't work this time. >> we'll turn now to new developments in the washington mansion murder case. a former lawyer for the man charged with the killing speaking out to abc news after visiting with daron wint in jail. this comes as the savopoulos family will be laid to rest and
7:34 am
ryan smith is outside the cathedral where the funeral will be held. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: at their wake scores of family and friends stood in long lines to pay their respects to the savopoulos family and today even more expected to fill this church for their funeral. and as their surviving teen daughter faces life without their family, the alleged killer is professing innocence. this morning two teenage daughters grieving for the savopoulos family and set to attend their funeral. those three along with their housekeeper vera figueroa were held 19 hours before being killed in a quadruple homicide and fire inside this mansion just over two weeks ago, the pain of this attack etched on the faces of family and friends at sunday's wake. and as they grieve, a former lawyer for daron wint, the man charged with murder in connection with the killings is speaking out after visiting the
7:35 am
suspect in jail this weekend. >> he is resolute in the belief and i also harbor the same belief that he wouldn't kill anybody. >> reporter: wint once worked for savopoulos' steel manufacturing company but left over a decade ago. according to the attorney, wint says he didn't harbor any negative feelings about leaving. >> he mentioned to me that no one would hold a grudge for 11 years, so he had nothing against the deceased man. he spoke highly of him, said he never met the wife at all and would never hurt a child. >> reporter: and he challenged some of the evidence police have collected like the bundles of cash found in a truck where wint was arrested. >> i don't believe he had any cash on him. i think there was cash in another vehicle. that's true. there was cash in a box truck. he wasn't in that box truck nor did he have any weapons. >> reporter: the attorney has not been officially hired by went and is not commenting on
7:36 am
whether wint has an alibi but the they say they have the wrong man. a relative of went painting a very different picture of the suspect. just after the search for him began calling him arrogant and very hostile. investigators are still looking for his believed accomplices and his next court date, june 22nd. george. >> okay, ryan, thanks very much. still working hard to get the answers. now to that new blockbuster "san andreas" raising questions about what would really happen if the big one hit. it was a number one movie over the weekend and nick watt has done some fact checking and joins us from earthquake simulator. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, the simulator here is set to 8.0 and it feels pretty real but a lot of seismologists are saying that the movie "san andreas" isn't quite so real. the rock. >> oh, my god.
7:37 am
>> reporter: rubble and a $53 million opening weekend. >> i found fault in their fault. everything was exaggerated. >> hold on. we got to get over it. >> reporter: number one the san andreas fault could never kick up a tsunami because it's on land. >> the earth will literally crack open. >> reporter: number two, this fault line only rubs together, never gapes wide open. >> the only falls that open up are ones that don't produce earthquakes. >> reporter: a 9.6 is not feasible in california. they say 8.3 is the worst that could hammer the golden state. that's still pretty bad. number four, in a quake, strong enough to crack the hoover dam. even the rock would wobble. no way he could run. >> it was great fun, i just wouldn't try to learn seismology from it. >> reporter: she says they did get some important stuff right.
7:38 am
>> drop, cover and hold on. because your life is going to depend on it. >> reporter: that's sound advice and, yes, aftershocks happen, one quake can trigger others. >> people need to know that the shaking is not over. we'll get hit again and it's going to be a bigger monster. >> reporter: and the fear, spot-on. >> we're going to get our daughter, i promise. >> i love you, dad. >> don't you quit on me. >> and you know what, when it comes to earthquake preparedness, it's good to make people scared so "san andreas" has done its job. i'm scared. i've got a kit. this afternoon i'll stockpile bottled water and canned corn in my garage. robin. >> the canned corn. >> that's combat -- >> absolutely but people on the west coast say that is no joke and they -- >> i lived there. you definitely wanted to have that kit ready to go. >> and be prepared but thanks to nick now to some incredible footage of cattle being rescued from that floodwater. >> not just the people, this

8:17 am
>> you guys would be good. that would help you out a lot? >> long and hayes generously deciding to make sure both marty and nancy have a place to stay for the next two months. >> what i do know more about now is the experience of being homeless and, you know, just what these people might feel for just a day. >> reporter: even though long and hayes are nfl football players, they quickly realized that life on the streets isn't safe. they had originally planned to stay on the streets for 48 hours but they ended it after 24 hours because they were concerned that the homeless people they were interacting with might think that they were undercover police officers. >> wow. >> yeah. >> keeping them in mind. >> hey, jesse, thank you. we want to join now as one of the players that we just saw going undercover on the streets, chris long is good enough to be with us this morning. hey, chris, thank you so much. what was the most eye-opening experience for you in all this? >> well, i think it was honestly i had a lot of expectations going in, but they were all blown out of the water.
8:18 am
it was a human element of it for me. i never felt so invisible. you know, that's something that while we could never gain the true experience of what it's like to be homeless in just 24 hours, it was never supposed to be a challenge to see if we could tough it out. it was more about putting yourself in somebody's shoes for just a second and one of the things we were able to gain was that feeling of invisibility, you know, we were panhandling right in front of the edward jones dome where we play football and not one person recognized us and there's a big picture of myself and a couple of other players right behind us on the dome. we sat outside the dome and an executive from our team walked by and didn't even recognize us, so that feeling of invisibility, you know, is just -- it really struck me and stayed with me and i kind of ask myself, do i project that same invisibility on people that are displaced and homeless and, you know, i just kind of critiqued the way i go about things. >> very powerful. >> chris, i know we saw you transform yourself physically, which is why people didn't
8:19 am
recognize you, but how did you prepare yourself mentally for this challenge? >> well, for me, you know, it wasn't as much of a how do i psych myself up for something like this. it wasn't for me about trying to get through it. it was for me about trying to prepare myself to respect the situation that i'm walking into and be sensitive, you know, in mind and action, you know, beyond just the exercise, you know, into right now, being sensitive to that problem that so many people in america have that it's a reality for them and we were just stepping in trying to raise awareness. you know, for us it wasn't for the longest time about having cameras follow us around. this was something we planned to do for a year to pair an experience with some of the money that we donated as a defensive line for a couple of years now and, you know, when espn called us, we were a little apprehensive but, you know, i think overall being able to raise the awareness that a platform like that brings will
8:20 am
make it worth it and some of our apprehensions have kind of gone away seeing some of the reactions. >> chris, you say you weren't there to prove you could tough it out. but it did seem like a pretty tough night in the back of that truck. 30 degrees. >> well, it's cold and, you know, st. louis gets very cold in the winter and a lot of cities in america get super cold in the winter, and it made you think, you know, this is a cold night and we on purpose didn't have a lot to kind of cover up and i've been camping. i've gone out, spent nights outside in colder weather but, you know, you try to imagine and pair that cold and imagine that it's maybe zero degrees down there in downtown st. louis and some of these people that aren't accessing some of the services and the shelters for whatever reason are stuck out in that cold, and maybe they have children. you know, i'm a 270-pound man but you pair that cold with that feeling of insecurity that these people might have with that lack
8:21 am
of safety that somebody has children with them or, you know, a woman who's far smaller than us, you know, that's a striking feeling. >> just real quick, we saw how you helped both marty and nancy find temporary housing. just can you just let us know quickly, have you kept in touch with them? how are they? >> yeah, we've kept in touch with them a little bit. we don't want to smother them with too many phone calls or bother them too much because, you know, you want help but some people are very prideful, and i think marty and nancy were very nice to let us kind of help them out and so we call them and check in. as of last week marty was still working at the new job he found as a foreman and nancy's accessing services that i don't think she ever would have had we not run into each other so it was good to meet them. hopefully they were lucky to meet us and, you know, we didn't assume that it was going to be a happy ending right away because it's so complicated, as you know, but we'll keep in touch
8:22 am
with them and i think just given a little effort and hopefully the awareness this raises gives us the opportunity for maybe people to set the wheels in motion for something good to happen. >> bless you for bringing awareness. thank you for being with us this morning. we certainly do appreciate it. you take care. and what he said is so true. >> thank y'all. >> thank you. how many times do you not make eye contact? you don't want to -- then for him to -- his picture to be there, people still didn't see him, educational. >> yep. hey, ginger has another check of the weather for us. >> we've got some drizzle out here. some wonderful ladies. 10-year-old birthdays. you're both 10? >> yeah. >> yeah. this is marina and this is skylar. happy birthday to them and start in louisville. they're raining too. they'll have showers throughout parts of the day. starting in the upper 50s, only going into the mid-60s but the real cold is up north in the great lakes, temperature, 42 in chicago this morning. wisconsin, 39. flint, michigan, 45. that's cold. the freeze warnings will
