all of that. but first it was an emotional day in court in that prep school trial, the young accuser in tears sharing her side of the story and facing a tough cross-examination. her mother and the school nurse also taking the stand. dan and nancy standing by to discuss, but first abc's gio benitez has the latest from concord, new hampshire. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. that girl walked out of that courtroom in tears after tough questions about whether she's telling the truth. this morning, the alleged victim in the prep school rape trial is off the stand after spending nearly three days emotionally describing a violent assault she says happened at the hands of now 19-year-old owen labrie. a tough cross-examination by the defense attorney asking intimate details and asking why she says she was cloudy in her interview with police. >> well, why were you cloudy? >> i was raped. >> reporter: we're disguising her voice, a 16-year-old girl, 15 at the time in question.
7:32 am
>> were you excited to have his attention? >> during the kissing, yes, i was. >> you were laughing at various points with owen, weren't you? >> again, laughing nervously, yes. >> reporter: also taking the stand thursday, the alleged victim's mother remembering the call she says she got in the middle of the night days after the encounter. >> i was just trying to calm her down to understand what she was trying to tell me. she said something bad has happened. >> reporter: and this woman, a school nurse who the girl went to for emergency contraception. >> did you talk about whether the intercourse was consensual or not? >> yes, i did ask her those questions, and she said that it was consensual, that it was not coerced. >> reporter: labrie denies he and the girl ever had sexual intercourse. he'll eventually take the stand. >> the defense is trying a few different strategies. they're doing a little bit of blaming the victim and trying to say she knew what she was getting into.
7:33 am
>> reporter: but the girl's family's spokesperson says that now one year after the alleged incident, the girl is feeling stronger. she even asked you to deliver a message. >> she wanted everyone to know that she's not just a victim, she's a survivor. >> reporter: labrie has pleaded not guilty. court is not in session today, so everyone will be coming back here on monday to face that jury of 11 men and 3 women, david. >> all right, gio benitez, who has been on the case since the start, thanks. to dan abrams and nancy grace host of not-coming-back's "nanc. first, dan, how did she do? >> she was a good witness, she was smart. she was thoughtful. she was careful about what she said, but it doesn't change the fact that the prosecutors have real hurdles here with regard to some of the facts. the fact that she sent these facebook texts, which seemed almost flirty after the fact, that she told the nurse that it was consensual.
7:34 am
these are real problems when it comes to getting a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt. >> but, nancy, this was difficult to listen to and even to hear the prosecutor, a grown man, asking a young teenage girl the kinds of questions we hear in cases like this. >> yes, extremely difficult. i think both sides have big problems, because, remember, the defense is there was no sexual intercourse at all. why is that the defense? because at her age of 15, even if it was consensual, the defendant now 19 is looking at a charge of statutory rape, so he can only claim no sex. so, let me ask you this, dan abrams, in those flirty e-mails and texts that you refer to, why did the defendant say, praise jesus, i put on a condom halfway through? halfway through what, dan? >> yeah, yeah, and that's -- look, there's no question that that's a challenge for the defense except that the most serious charges in this case are not statutory rape charges.
7:35 am
>> that's true. >> that's a nice sort of side point to make but the reality is we're talking -- >> still a rape. >> we're talking about a forcible rape case here, nancy, and the bottom line is that the issues that we're raising about the facebook texts, et cetera, even if you're right, even if this jury believes, yes, they had sex, but we're not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that this was forcible and that it was nonconsensual, that's a real problem for the prosecution in this case. >> but, you know, dan, she brings up this notion about what happened, whether there was sex or whether there wasn't. but how big of a deal is the nurse's testimony that the young woman said it was consensual? >> look, i think it's a real problem for the prosecution. there are explanations for it. you know, it is not atypical for a rape victim to not want to disclose what happened. but when it comes to a jury, it's a real problem. it's a problem for the prosecution in this case. but, look, i agree with you. listening to an old man asking
7:36 am

welcome back to "gma" and time now for the "heat index" and this morning's hot button. a new report raising big questions about breast cancer treatment. as many as 60,000 women a year are diagnosed with something known as stage zero breast cancer, and now a new study is raising doubts about the effectiveness of early intervention. this morning a new study shedding light on dcis, also known as stage zero breast cancer. as many as 60,000 women each year are told they have these precancerous cells and until now urged to undergo aggressive treatments like a mastectomy and radiation to prevent cancer. >> it is a condition that puts you at higher risk to develop an invasive cancer.
8:11 am
>> reporter: the study that followed 100,000 women for 20 years shows that these painful and sometimes risky procedures may be unnecessary. the "journal of the medical association oncology's report" finds that only 3.3% of women with dcis actually die from breast cancer. >> dcis is not a lethal condition. you're not going to die from it, so it's important to know you don't have to do more than you need. >> reporter: but the study did find that some african-american women with dcis are still at a higher risk. and joining us now from los angeles is dr. jennifer ashton. jen, thanks for being with us. >> good morning, amy. >> so help us further explain this stage zero cancer. is it technically cancer? >> well, first you have to understand the range of pathology results for this type of breast cancer, and it's really a spectrum. it goes from normal through a couple of stages to atypical cells to dcis to invasive ductal breast cancer, and the key here
8:12 am
and the controversy really is in those middle stages, the atypical cell, the dcis and how best to treat them or should they be treated at all? that's where the controversy is. >> right, so if the recommendation is to do nothing, that emotionally has to be frightening to hear as a patient. >> oh, it's not only frightening, this concept of watchful waiting is challenging for the medical community, for doctors and for patients alike. we're already seeing that occur in other types of cancers, for example, in cervical cancer, today we're watching and following certain types of abnormal pap smears where ten years ago those women would have had surgery on their cervix, so this is the concept. should this type of lesion be treated, and if so, in what type of patient? >> and, jen, it's not just about whether or not dcis should be treated. there is also disagreement among pathologists about how it's diagnosed, correct? >> right. absolutely and, listen, we have to remember what the
8:13 am
pathologists do when they look at these slides, this is an art and science. there is a human component, there is a surgical component in terms of the margins and there can be very, very subtle differences between atypical cells and dcis in some case. >> so, jen, if you're someone who has been told they have dcis or stage zero breast cancer, what is your recommendation as a doctor? >> well, i get this question all the time, amy, from women, so the first thing i recommend is stop, take a minute, take a deep breath. this feels like an emergency, and emotionally it really does feel that way, but medically you have time. the second thing, if possible, consider asking for those biopsy slides and bringing them to another pathologist for a second opinion. that could be at the same hospital or at a completely different breast center, and, lastly, you have to weigh the risks versus the benefits versus the options, and that's the risk of treating versus the risk of not treating versus the benefiting of treating or
8:14 am
the benefit of not treating and those options. this is not one size fits, so we're going to be following this closely in the future, and we're going to be hearing a lot more about this. >> every cancer is different, dr. jen ashton, thank you very much for being with us. >> you bet, amy. >> great advice there to take a deep breath but it's so hard when a woman and her whole family hears that diagnosis. the stress rescue series we've been covering here on "gma." we're taking on fomo, also known as the fear of missing out. a study revealing i was missing out all week. that's why i'm here. more than half of social media users have felt it, and it's stressing them out. so, how do you beat it? abc's abbie boudreau this morning. >> reporter: jobs can be stressful. dating can be stressful, but could social media be stressing you out too? a new article in "the new york times" suggests that scanning scenic snaps and vivacious pics of taylor swift's squad,
8:15 am
pics of j. lo or amy schumer in the sunset or even seeing serene shots from your own family, friends or co-workers could be bringing you some summer blues. >> as you browse these pictures of other people's lives, that leads people to feel more envy or jealousy, and it's those feelings in turn lead you to feel worse over time. >> reporter: it's called fomo, fear of missing out, and while the term has been around for awhile, the article now suggests fomo could actually be worse in the summer than the rest of the year. some research even suggesting that scrolling through your social media feeds can enhance envy, and that even while you're looking at something seemingly relaxing like a setting sun in a tropical paradise, it could actually make you feel worse. >> when you constantly compare your own life to other people's lives, if everyone else's life looks fantastic, you're going to feel bad. >> reporter: and while facebook and instagram can be helpful for keeping in touch with a far away friend, it's also important to get up and do things irl, aka, in real life.
8:16 am
>> it's really important to strike a balance between how frequently we're engaging with these online social networks. >> reporter: so what should you do if seeing your favorite pop stars living large turns you into a green-eyed monster? get up and make some plans and get in some real face-to-face time. >> the more you interact with other people directly, the better you feel. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> what amy was saying that you actually feel happy for people when you look at the pictures. >> oh, look where they are, look what they're doing, but also know no one is posting the fight they just had with their spouse. >> exactly. >> how they felt when they woke up. >> as i get older fomo just goes down and i've come to the conclusion no matter how great it looks, it's definitely not that cool, what other people are doing. >> and it's filtered. definitely put an instagram filter on it always. >> even when they say no filter. we figured it out here. moving on now to a very remarkable and inspirational story, ten years after hurricane katrina, robin returns home to

the gulf coast giving us an in-depth look at how the south is recovering and the resilience of its people, and this morning she is taking us back to her hometown in pass christian, mississippi. robin, good morning to you. >> good morning to you too, amy. we affectionately call it the pass, and i got to tell you ten years ago i couldn't get here fast enough after the hurricane hit. like thousands of others, i was searching for my family, so here's a look at what happened after the darkest hours. on august 29th, 2005, hurricane katrina taught thousands of people a very painful life lesson. the place you love and call home can in a split second disappear. >> robin, i know when you left here last night and flew down, you hadn't been able to make contact with your own family yet. have you done so? >> they're okay. >> they're okay?
8:18 am
>> they're fine, and just so many people -- excuse me -- so many people affected by this storm who can't get to the loved ones. i was fortunate enough to be able to get down here and see them firsthand. >> you know for about, what, 24 to 48 hours, you didn't know if mom and i were even alive. how was that? i've never even asked you that. >> i remember just saying, i know i'm here to report, but i got to find my mom and my sister. and i know the reason i broke down and cried like i did once i found you all and did my report is because i knew people were tuning in that morning feeling what i had just felt, not knowing about their loved ones. >> wow. >> i knew what that felt like. i knew the hopelessness. >> right. >> reporter: my sister dorothy who has lived through the rebuilding always gives her little sis perspective.
