7:02 am
and we're also hearing exclusively from the people who came face to face with those two killers, moments after they got loose. abc's gio benitez is outside that prison in upstate new york with the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning, robin. listen, the key question right now, was this an inside job? we have also now learned these prisoners had special privileges, because of good behavior. so investigators want to know if all of that helped them escape. abc news has learned investigators are questioning this prison employee, joyce mitchell, an industrial training supervisor at the clinton correctional facility to find out what exactly she knew about the dramatic escape of two convicted murderers. still at large this morning, despite a frantic, all-night manhunt. mitchell has worked at the prison since 2010 supervising inmate work assignments and lives about an hour away with her son and husband. abc news has learned the prisoners, one convicted of killing a sheriff's deputy, the other killing his boss, were
7:03 am
housed on a floor for well-behaved inmates called the honor block, where the perks included getting to work as assistants to plumbers and electricians. even allowed to wear civilian clothes instead of prison-issued garb. two local residents are the only people known to have come face to face with the cold-blooded killers minutes after their escape. >> the one guy with a buzz cut had a guitar on his back, the guitar case. >> reporter: a guitar case. >> a black guitar case. >> reporter: okay. >> and they were wearing darker jeans. one with the case had the white t-shirt. >> reporter: the friends, who wished not to be named, told me they unexpectedly stumbled upon the escapees in their backyard shortly after returning home at 12:30 a.m. so what did you say? you immediately yelled something at them. >> i see them -- i ask them what the hell are you doing in my yard? get the hell out of here. and he was like, sorry, i didn't know where i was. i'm on the wrong street. >> reporter: prison officials wouldn't realize the two escaped until five hours later.
7:04 am
and now, once you know who it was that you saw, what do you think? >> lucky to be alive, man. >> reporter: and you heard one of the witnesses there talking about that guitar case. well, you can bet investigators will be looking into whether a guitar case was used to carry out those power tools. george? >> yeah, they will. okay, gio, thanks very much. we turn to that urgent health alert. a woman with a rare, drug-resistant form of tuberculosis is in isolation at the national institutes of health. she came to the u.s. from india seven weeks ago and now officials are trying to track down anyone who may have come in contact with her. abc's david kerley has the latest from the bethesda medical center in maryland. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. the woman is in isolation in this clinic behind me that you see higher. and that difficult task under way this morning, trying to contact the hundreds of people in three different states she may have come in contact with. this morning, with the patient in isolation, the daunting task of trying to contact the hundreds of people who may have been in contact with the woman since she arrived in the u.s. nearly two months ago.
7:05 am
this strain of tuberculosis is dangerous because it's resistant to drug treatment. the centers for disease control tells abc news the woman, who arrived on a flight from india into chicago's o' hare airport seven weeks ago, the first part of april, knew she had tuberculosis. in fact, she came to the u.s. for treatment. the woman had been treated in india on more than one occasion but never completed that therapy. the problem, after the woman arrived in chicago she traveled to missouri and to tennessee meeting health officials in those three states trying to find out who she had contact with and notify them as well as the passengers who were on her flight from india. while tuberculosis requires close contact, it can be spread through the air. it's unlikely anyone on the plane was infected. but health officials are taking no chances. which is why they are trying to contact all these people, find who she talked to. who she met with. george, she is being treated here and remains in stable condition this morning.
7:06 am
>> okay, david, thanks very much. let's bring in rich besser for more on this. as david said right there, officials don't believe that anybody on the plane was infected, but this could be serious. >> yeah, this is a big deal. and it's not because this type of tb is more contagious. but if you get this xdrtb, 70% of the time, it's fatal. she got her infection the way most do. starting tb treatment, which could take six months to a year and not completing the drug therapy. >> what are officials doing? >> well, the good news is, tb is not contagious like a cold or the flu. you need a lot of hours of close contact. but they're going to want to come in contact -- going to want to test and monitor anyone who had close contact with her during that time she was traveling around. on the plane, anyone in her row, two rows in front, or two rows behind. they'll be tested and monitored for two months to see if they have the infection. >> rich besser, thanks very much. all right, george now to another story we have for you, the massive security breach, personal information for at least 4 million government workers stolen.
7:07 am
intelligence experts are worried this is just the first wave of a major attack which could be used to spy on americans. abc's pierre thomas has exclusive new details from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we have disturbing new evidence today that the hack of the office of personnel management is worse than we knew, with potentially enormous national security implications. abc news has learn eded intelligence officials fear hackers who targeted the office of personnel management may have launched the first phase of a sweeping spy campaign against the united states government. private information about 4 million current and former government employees appears to have been compromised in one of the most devastating breaches ever, a cyberattack that authorities worry goes way beyond identity theft. among those government workers potentially hit, many working in key positions. some current and former cabinet secretaries, fbi agents and analysts conducting sensitive investigation, secret service personnel including agents who
7:08 am
protect the president. it's just the kind of information u.s. adversaries would covet. >> a government could use all of this private information about federal workers, especially those who may have security clearances, to advance an espionage agenda. >> reporter: the president described the growing threat at the g-7 summit. >> both state and nonstate actors are sending everything they've got at trying to breach these systems. >> reporter: no final conclusions but sources say the evidence points to hackers working on behalf of the chinese government. and those sources appear stunned that the government would house so much vital information about so many key employees in one apparently unsecure place. george. >> such a massive breach, okay, pierre, thanks very much. we're going to get the latest now on former house speaker dennis hastert. he was once one of the most powerful men in government. today he'll be in court facing charges of bank fraud and lying to the fbi, all to cover up sexual abuse during his time as a high school wrestling coach. brian ross is outside the courthouse in chicago, good morning, brian.
7:09 am
>> reporter: good morning, george. like any accused criminal, the former speaker of the house will have to walk into the main entrance of the courthouse here today, wait his turn to enter a plea and will be booked and fingerprinted by u.s. marshals. a stunning fall from grace to a man once second in line to the presidency. hastert emerged from hiding monday leaving his vacation home in wisconsin. as he stopped to clean the car's windshield, it was the first times a tert had been seen in public since his indictment a week and half ago. he and his wife drove to their home in plano, illinois, as hastert engaged a new lawyer who said neither he nor hastert would have any comment on the charges the former speaker violated federal bank laws and lied to the fbi. federal authorities say the charges involve efforts to hide alleged sexual misconduct when hastert served as a popular high school wrestling coach in yorkville, illinois, decades ago. according to the indictment, he
7:10 am
agreed to pay $3.5 million to an "individual a" who was an alleged victim. since the indictment, a second person has also been identified as an alleged sexual abuse victim. >> there are no words to describe what it felt like to, you know, it was just like stevie, we've done it. it's going to happen. we got him. >> reporter: the sister of the late stephen reinboldt, the team equipment manager, told abc news her brother told her he had been molested by coach hastert between 1967 and 1971. reinboldt's sister says neither she nor her brother asked for money from hastert. the identity of the other victim, who the fbi says did receive more than $1 million in hush money from hastert, remains a mystery. >> all right, brian, thank you. the growing outrage over the police officer pulling his gun at a pool barth and throwing a girl to the ground. this morning, we're learning

more about what set off that scene. and hearing from the young man who shot that video. abc's steve osunsami is in mckinney, texas, with all those details. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, robin. even the kids who were here at the pool party say it was just one of the officers who was a little more excited than the others. police this morning are asking families here to be patient while they investigate what happened. this morning, we're hearing from the teenager who recorded this disturbing video of the chaos outside this private pool in mckinney, texas. >> in the grass! >> reporter: 15-year-old brandon brooks is telling kdaf-tv that corporal eric casebolt, who remains on administrative leave this morning, seemed to flip out long before he is seen pushing the face of this 15-year-old girl in the dirt. >> on your face! >> when he pulled his gun, my heart dropped as soon as he pulled out his gun. i thought he was going to shoot that kid. that was very scary. >> reporter: that's casebolt after arriving on the scene
7:12 am
racing so fast he falls. but doesn't miss a beat. >> he trips and drops his flashlight then he's going crazy putting people in handcuffs. >> it seemed like the officer was going for the african-american kids? >> i do feel it's true because i was one of the only white people in the area when it was -- when that was happening. and you can see in part of the video where he tells us to sit down. and he kind of like skips over me and tells all my african-american friends to go sit down. >> reporter: by the end of the video he's sitting on the 15-year-old with his knees pressing into her back. >> he told me to keep walking. and i kept walking. then i'm guessing he thought we were saying rude stuff to him. >> reporter: this morning we're learning more about what started it all. police were responding to a fight between a handful of white residents and black teenagers who were here for an
