good morning, america. new overnight, summer scorcher. a late season monsoon and powerful wind gusts leave tens of thousands without power. the big rig flipped on its side. flash flooding turning streets and highways into rivers. those oppressive temperatures blanketing the east. a heat wave in september. breaking overnight, thousands of new pages of hillary clinton's private messages released. her critics calling it a national security scandal. what her e-mails are revealing about her work and her family this morning. >> thank you, thank you. gridiron mystery. two high school football players on the same team collapse after a game, rushed to the hospital with brain injuries. one in critical condition. the investigation right now. people's pope makes history. a major announcement from the vatican this morning and abc news exclusively there for the first ever virtual papal audience. the incredible moment from one young woman.
7:01 am
>> may i ask of you to sing a song for me? >> david muir and the pope's excitement about his historic first visit to the u.s. only on "gma" this morning. and good morning, america. what a moment at the vatican. abc news there exclusively for an historic global event. the pope getting ready for his first ever visit to the u.s. and making some big news this morning on the issue of abortion. we're going to get to that ahead. >> big announcement coming up there. but first, we want to get to the extreme weather, making it a steamy start to september. the east coast set to bake in above normal 90-degree heat and in the southwest, more rain, powerful wind. ginger zee covering it all. good morning to you, ginger. >> good morning. strong monsoon storms taking trees down, putting them on top of cars. and it sounded like this in phoenix. >> oh, my god. oh, my god.
7:02 am
oh, my god. >> up to an inch and a half of rain. there were water rescues and it wasn't just there. pockets of flash flooding and power outages, 65,000 in phoenix. to this in brownsville, texas, 4 to even 6 inches of rain, especially north of the city. a lot of the drains couldn't handle it. and charleston, south carolina, had their fifth wettest day on record. finally that heat, lara, you were just talking about it. heat pushing to the east up into minnesota. some places enduring 10 to 15-degree above average temperatures. and it's going to stay through the midweek. george? >> okay, ginger, thanks. we turn to the hillary clinton e-mails released overnight. more than 7,000 pages. the largest release yet from her time as secretary of state. they've been a thorn in her side throughout the campaign and martha raddatz and our team in washington pored through them all night long. and martha, a real mix of policy, politics, and some personal stuff. >> reporter: there certainly are, george. the e-mails include thoughts from her daughter chelsea, to her choice of tv shows, to the
7:03 am
most serious issues confronting clinton while secretary of state. overnight, those 7,000 pages of e-mails from clinton's private server released. 125 now deemed classified. including details from a meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu now heavily redacted. a clinton aide aware at the time of the sensitivities, happy to talk secure at your convenience, he writes. but then adding the highlights are as follows. those details now blanked out. it appears even employees of the state department's computer help desk were confused by clinton's use of the private server. they had no idea it was you. just some random address, so they e-mailed. her aide, huma abedin, replies to clinton. many of the other e-mails more mundane but providing insight into the person behind the office. details from her daughter, chelsea, about a trip to
7:04 am
her excitement over and ipad, asking, do you think you can teach me to use it on the flight to kiev next week? disdain for government shutdowns during snow days in the nation's capital. i guess i will work from home again but think this is silly. even the need to know when two popular television shows air, can you give me times for two tv shows, "parks and recreation" and "the good wife." so far only 25% of the e-mails have been released. the state department is aiming to have them all out by january 2016. clinton has said repeatedly that none of the e-mails she exchanged were marked classified. but clearly officials now think that some information being discussed over her private e-mail server at the time contains information that certainly should be. and there are many more e-mails yet to come. george? >> that provides more fodder for critics. okay, martha, thanks very much. we turn to the republicans and this morning donald trump has some company at the top of the polls. a new poll shows dr. ben carson
7:05 am
surging to a first place tie with trump in iowa. let's go to jon karl for more. you have carly fiorina in third. not a professional politician in the bunch. >> reporter: that's right, george. in all of american history, we have never elected a president who didn't have either political or military experience. but now republican voters seem to be saying, if you have government experience, you need not apply. could there be a new republican front-runner? out in iowa there is. or at least co-front-runner. dr. ben carson is now tied with donald trump with 23% in the state that will vote first. coming in third, former hp ceo carly fiorina at 10%. what do all three have in common? none of them have served a single day in political office. >> i don't want to be a politician. >> reporter: the crowded republican field is jam-packed with political experience, nine governors, five senators, but republican voters seem to be saying they just don't care about all that. they want an outsider.
7:06 am
>> they want to get re-elected. and i want to save our nation. >> reporter: dr. carson has an inspiring personal story. he climbed out of the depths of poverty in inner city detroit to become one of the world's most highly regarded brain surgeons. >> when i take someone to the operating room i'm operating on the thing that makes them who they are. the skin doesn't make them who they are. the hair doesn't make them who they are. and it's time for us to move beyond that. >> reporter: carson is staunchly anti-abortion. he has said obama care is the worst thing since slavery. earlier this year, he apologized for saying people go into prison straight and come out gay. 81% of iowa voters say they have a favorable view of carson, only 6%, george, said unfavorable. that makes him by far the most well-liked politician. now politician candidate in the race. >> just an incredible year already. okay, jon karl, thanks very much. all right, george. turning now to a deadly police shooting. a texas man gunned down by officers responding to a
7:07 am
domestic dispute. the incident, caught on camera. and in the video, the victim appears to be raising his hands right before he's shot. the officers have been placed on administrative leave. we want to warn you, the video may be difficult to watch. abc's matt gutman is in houston with the story. matt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lara. for one college student, it was impossible not the watch. he thought he was filming something that was a routine arrest. instead, he captured a grisly and controversial shooting. caught on tape, two sheriff's deputies in san antonio opening fire on a man who appears to have his hands up. the cell phone video taken by a college student michael thomas who sold it to abc affiliate ksat. >> he put his hands in the air. they shot him twice. >> reporter: although one of his hands is obscured by a pole, 41-year-old gilbert flores appears to have both hands raised when multiple shots are fired. >> he just shot that guy, bro.
7:08 am
>> reporter: he collapses to the ground. for the next three minutes officers leave him there. not appearing to render first aid. he was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. the bexar sheriff's blasting ksat, saying it should not have released the unedited video. saying itself received threats and as a result, it's unethical and sad. the incident began when officers responded to a domestic disturbance call on friday. you see a shirtless flores running out of the home seeming to evade a pair of deputies which the sheriff's office says had been on the job for more than ten years. police say flores may have injured an 18-month-old girl and a woman inside the home. >> what's in the video is a cause for concern. but it's important to let the investigation go through its course so that we can assure a thorough and complete review of all that occurred. >> reporter: the district attorney's office investigating. thanking the young man who captured the footage. >> i was watching. i was kind of wondering what was going on. but i couldn't figure this out. it's been going on in the world different type of shootings with
7:09 am
cops and different things like that. so i was like, maybe i can catch something on my camera. >> reporter: the d.a.'s office is telling us there is a second video of that shooting. it's not yet been released. we have also learned the justice department is monitoring the sheriff's office investigation of the shooting. george? >> certainly will. okay, matt, thanks very much. we have new developments in the case of that young woman shot and killed in san francisco earlier this summer by an illegal immigrant. a man who had already been deported five times. this morning, kate steinle's parents are filing a lawsuit against the sheriff and federal officials. pierre thomas has the latest from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. a still grieving family is planning to file suit claiming that the government failed on every level from the city to the federal. and that a young woman is dead because of it. >> it's just a roller coaster of emotions. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with abc station kgo overnight, the family of kate steinle says they're seeking
7:10 am
justice as they struggle to cope with their pain. steinle was killed on july 1st as she walked with her family on a san francisco pier by francisco sanchez, a mexican immigrant previously deported from the u.s. five times, after he had been released by city officials. among those expected to be named in the upcoming lawsuit, u.s. bureau of land management, the gun used by sanchez stolen from the car of one of that agency's investigators. also expected to be named in the suit, u.s. immigration and customs enforcement. as well as san francisco's sheriff ross mirkarimi, who released sanchez from his jail in april despite a request from immigration officials he be turned over. steinle's family blames those who allowed sanchez to walk free in the first place. >> we don't need them here, not violent felons. >> reporter: her father testified on capitol hill in july calling for stronger immigration laws. >> the u.s. has suffered a self-inflicted wound in the murder of our daughter by the hand of a person that should have never been on the streets of this country. >> reporter: the family hoping to honor their daughter by

7:13 am
actually, for new york, he got quite a reaction there. >> people looked. >> but those people, they're like, whatevs. the limber man is logan paul, showing off his surprising flexibility around the city. >> that looks so painful. >> and it isn't a stretch to say that logan is side-splitting funny. >> it's the way he finishes. >> yeah. >> hey, look what i can do. >> it's the way he doesn't flinch when he hits bottom. >> yeah. >> i know. >> practice makes perfect. >> not his first rodeo. >> no. no. well said, jesse. >> thank you. >> okay, thank you, amy. we will turn to that big news from the vatican this morning. pope francis announcing that he is allowing all priests to absolve and forgive all women who have had abortions in this jubilee year for the catholic church. it comes after that unprecedented event at the vatican. david muir with the pope as he connects with americans in three cities ahead of his trip to the u.s. that remarkable event in just 30 seconds. with the pope as he connects with americans in three cities ahead of his trip to the

u.s. that remarkable event in just 30 seconds. >> turn on the lights. >> okay. >> alexa, tell me the news. >> nasa is confirming the discovery of a planet which is the closest match yet to earth. it has just -- >> alexa, do aliens exist? >> there is no proof that alien life exists, but the universe is very big. now for that historic event with the pope. let's get straight to david muir in rome. good morning, david. >> reporter: george, good morning from just outside the vatican here. as you know we witnessed something truly historic here in the last 24 hours on the eve of pope francis' visit to the united states. we were allowed inside the vatican here for an hour with pope francis, where he greeted us as he prepares for his trip to america. he told me he's ready. he did have a couple of messages he wanted delivered to the american people before his historic visit. we quietly wait outside this
7:15 am
door. inside the closed walls of the vatican. we're not far from the pope's residence, a simple building where he lives with other priests, famous for choosing to forego the grand papal apartment. we're told in a moment the doors will open. the pope will emerge. instead the door opens. they wave me inside. the pope asking for a moment to meet before the cameras. then our walk to the room where he knows we're about to connect him with hundreds of americans across the country. a virtual papal audience. a conversation with them. we tell him there are many families, many young people in american who will follow his american trip on television. and as we head into the room, a smile. surprised at the scope of the crew. he knows our cameras are in three cities he won't be able to visit. a school in chicago. in los angeles. and a church in mcallen, texas, on the u.s.-mexico border.

>> valerie, i would like to hear you singing. may i ask of you to sing a song for me? >> reporter: we were all unsure if she would sing. >> be courageous. [ applause ] [ singing in spanish ] [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you very much. it's very kind of you. [ speaking spanish ] >> reporter: the pope talking to single mothers. to students. even surprising an american nun. tackling issues, immigration, abortion, education. we have never seen anything quite like it from a pope.
7:18 am
but this pope, after all, is already breaking the mold. and george, it truly was an extraordinary moment with valerie and so many of the other americans who gathered for the pope but in that moment alone, it was surprising for two reasons, first he spoke english to her when he asked her to sing a song for me. and to see the smile on his face and to hear him speak english. he did it a number of times. this is clearly a pope who is preparing for his visit to america. >> a lot of americans preparing for him, as well. remarkable stuff there and that young woman, so courageous, can't wait to meet her in the next hour. as well. >> yes, we will meet her coming up on "gma." >> and you can see a lot more on "world news" from inside the vatican. and a special edition of "20/20" this friday at 10:00 eastern. so much more ahead this morning including a deadly confrontation between two neighbors. the jury deciding whether a former school security guard is guilty of murder or killed his neighbor in self-defense. also coming up, an abc news exclusive. a husband and wife's miraculous survival story, their plane crashing in the everglades the two fighting to get out alive. >> i was shocked at being inside a fireball.

7:31 am
his fate in the hands of the jury and reena ninan has the story. >> reporter: a frightened father protecting his children or a menacing neighbor ending a longtime feud with four gunshots. >> kevin waggoner says he took video to prove his innocence. none of the video was running that night to prove his innocence. you know why, ladies and gentlemen? because he's not innocent. >> reporter: this morning a jury is deciding whether former school security guard kevin waggoner is guilty of second degree murder for killing neighbor michael woodby. >> come on! bring your [ bleep ] out here. >> reporter: the jury seeing nearly 180 hours of footage from the three-year feud between the two. both neighbors documenting their claims of threats and harassment by the other. >> come on back over here. [ bleep ] step on this side [ bleep ]. >> this is someone who told you, who told kevin, that he was going to get that boy and on september 16th, that's exactly
7:32 am
what he tried to do. >> reporter: waggoner testified that in september 2013, a drunken woodby approached him and his son, kolton, hitting kolton over the head with a fence post. waggoner then firing his gun at woodby four times, claiming self-defense. >> i just didn't know what else to do. i didn't have a choice. >> reporter: but woodby's widow tells a different story, saying waggoner was the real threat. >> you don't talk to my children. you don't videotape them every time you get off the school bus. >> come over here with my kids? videotaping children. >> reporter: and prosecutors playing audio of waggoner allegedly threatening woodby, recorded just months before the incident. >> this is 100% within his control now, not to die from me. >> reporter: waggoner faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted. for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> okay, let's talk to dan abrams about this right now. you know, dan, usually the defendant's testimony is so
7:33 am
critical. but in this case, he's got a big problem. >> that's right. his testimony is certainly important, meaning if the jury doesn't believe him, he's in big trouble. but even if they do, even if he seems credible, the defense has to address the physical evidence in this case. they've got real issues about where the shell casings were found, where the stick that he said was used to attack him was found. because prosecutors say it was found on the other side of the street and that the way they believe that the bullets were fired was from above, not someone who was defending themselves but someone who was shooting someone. and prosecutors believe he may have even been turned away when they fired. so all this is really important in the context of the testimony. >> waggoner's behavior after the killing reported to be pretty callous. how does that factor in? >> i think it's horrible for him when the jury is thinking about, do we believe him? because you have evidence here, he admits it, that he's sitting on a police scanner waiting to
7:34 am
confirm that he hears doa, meaning dead on arrival. is that what someone who has acted in self-defense does? the widow talks about how he mocked her right after her husband had been killed. he was even mocking their children. that's not the sort of thing that's helpful with the jury when you're asking the jury to accept my story, believe my account, even though there's troubling physical evidence. >> tennessee, one of these stand your ground states. a person has the right to defend themselves in their home. how does that play into this? >> they have the right to defend themselves even outside their home without retreating, right? but i don't know that it's going to be the key issue. this is a self-defense case. here the question is, was it reasonable for him to use the actions that he did because he believed that he was in imminent danger of either death or serious bodily injury? and that's the legal standard. >> okay. dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right. all right, george to that mystery at a california high school. two football players rushed to the hospital after a game. both with brain injuries. one of them in critical condition. but there are questions this morning about how it happened. abc's kayna whitworth joins us now with the story.

kayna, good morning. >> reporter: yeah, a lot of questions. lara, good morning to you. and while school officials comb through game footage the sheriff's office is now involved saying they are investigating what happened both on and off the field. this morning, california police and school officials trying to solve the mystery of what caused two high school football players to both be hospitalized with sudden brain injuries after a routine game. >> thorough investigation is under way to ascertain exactly what happened including a review of game footage. and other off-field factors. >> reporter: nick brown and justin schwartz had just finished playing friday night when teammates and spectators noticed something wrong. >> he just wasn't looking right. it looks like he was exhausted. >> reporter: within minutes the two teens losing consciousness and collapsing both rushed to local hospitals. schwartz treated for a concussion and nerve injury before being released saturday. but brown, still hospitalized in
7:36 am
critical condition, after undergoing emergency brain surgery friday night. his family telling abc news, he suffered a high-impact blow to the head that caused a subdural brain bleed. >> if a blow to the head is traumatic enough, it can cause blood. and that blood can collect and cause layers in the head. >> reporter: authorities now investigating whether reports of drug use among players particularly the prescription drug adderall, used to treat adhd, may have played a role. >> the rumor we heard about was adderall. that would be the primary focus. >> reporter: officials arresting a 17-year-old fellow student monday for allegedly selling the drug to classmates. though they say so far they have not connected the suspect to the injuries that brown and schwartz suffered. and as authorities search for answers, the teens' classmates simply hoping for their recovery. >> it's scary because it's like you don't expect that to happen but when it really does it's like -- it hits you. >> reporter: a neurologist we spoke to said there's no clear relationship between adderall

we are back now with a wakeup call for parents about school bus safety. new studies show a startling number of automobile drivers just ignore the rules when driving near school buses, putting children's lives at risk. abc's gio benitez has more on that from the bronx. gio, good morning. >> reporter: lara, good morning. school buses have these flashing stop signs that just come out. but for some reason, tens of thousands of drivers just keep

[ horn honking ] newly released numbers showing that in just one day, maryland bus drivers reported that vehicles illegally passed them 2,796 times. and 83 of those times they were passed on the right side, where children get on and off the bus. >> think about it. if the children are waiting at their stop, getting ready to get on the bus, cars are disregarding the red lights and driving down the right side.
7:43 am

because she was sitting in the crowd and i was like, okay, she's here. and i can do it. and then, so, it's like, i guess she -- just looking at her gave me the courage. >> valerie, when did you find out that you were going to get to talk to the pope and what was going through your mind when you found out? >> well, i found out that same morning like 40 minutes before, i think. >> wow. >> so, yeah, they just told me to be there early because there was going to be a meeting and they wanted me to be there to ask questions and so i was like, okay, no big deal. but then they told me, oh, you're going to be talking to the pope. and i was like, what? really? i just -- i thought they were joking. but then, i guess it was the real deal. >> the real deal, all right. you were so honest in saying that singing has been sort of an escape for you from dealing with things like bullying.
