7:00 am
good morning, america. super soaker. what is left of hurricane patricia still spreading misery from the south to the northeast. this bus stranded on the way to school. 20 students rescued. roads underwater and the storm now taking aim at new york and new england. new polls this morning show donald trump falling behind as ben carson surges to a double-digit lead in iowa. one day before their big face-to-face showdown. while jeb bush huddles with his family. is the debate his best chance to revive his campaign? caught on camera. a police officer slams a student and her desk to the ground, dragging her to the front of the class and arresting her. >> put your hands behind your back. >> a community outraged. the officer banned from school property. what the sheriff is saying this morning. and hero helicopter crew. a news team becoming part of the story, racing to save victims
7:01 am
trapped after a plane crash in the everglades. they capture dramatic images right after impact. >> we have three patients. one patient's going to be a trauma. >> eme and good morning, america. what an incredible story out of florida. take a look right there. you see that plane crash. well, our news crew from wplg down in miami was out flying, going on a story when they spotted this wreckage. they went down, went into action, saved the people on board that aircraft. amazing story. we're going to hear from the crew ahead. >> good thing an engineer happened to be on board that helicopter. we begin with that storm taking aim at the northeast. the remains of hurricane patricia not finished making life miserable for millions of americans. dumping flooding rain from texas into the florida panhandle and now moving north.
7:02 am
and ginger, of course, is following all of that for us this morning. >> i'll start us off in east baton rouge where the sheriff's office took these photos. students that were with on a bus got caught up. they couldn't get through the flash flooding. they put them on a truck and then they couldn't get the truck through the splash flooding. so they had to rescue them off of there. thankfully, everybody okay. but a lot of this fueled from the remnants of patricia. mississippi, alabama. this morning mostly west florida up to southern indiana and ohio that's where the storm is now. but it will move quickly tonight into the early morning hours, pennsylvania, new york, washington, d.c., will get it by tomorrow morning. then it's out of here. but it drops up to three inches of rain, especially in some of the higher elevations. i'll be back talking about snow on the west coast in just a couple of minutes so don't go anywhere. >> and three inches of rain. okay, ginger, thanks. the race for president. "your voice, your vote" and counting down to the next big republican debate tomorrow night. a new poll in iowa shows ben carson opening up a double-digit lead on donald trump.
7:03 am
while jeb bush tries to get back in the game with help from his family. abc's tom llamas has all the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. let's take a look at these numbers. you can see dr. ben carson with a commanding lead over trump, 32% to 18%. not only that, carson is the first or second choice for 51% of likely voters in that critical state. new motivation for trump to highlight the difference between himself and carson at tomorrow's debate. for months donald trump seemed unstoppable. but this morning, more proof his campaign is struggling in iowa. now, three polls showing dr. ben carson is the new front-runner in the hawkeye state. >> i'm number two in iowa. i said, i don't believe it. one's bloomberg, they hate me. the other one is a superliberal newspaper "the des moines register" which is third rate. totally third rate. >> reporter: trump not ready to surrender his position, describing the former neurosurgeon as sleepy. >> my energy levels are perfectly fine. as i have said many times. there have been many times when
7:04 am
i've operated for 12, 15, 18, 20 i've operated for 12, 15, 18, 20 hours. >> reporter: this morning, trump dealing with more than just a surging carson. some pointing out that trump who celebrated his wealth on the campaign trail by signing dollar bills, may be too out of touch with middle and working class voters after saying this. >> i started off in brooklyn. my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. >> reporter: trump defending it, saying a million isn't very much compared to what he's built. one of trump's rivals jeb bush struggling with finances would love a million bucks right now. bush huddled with family and loyal donors at this texas hotel trying to reassure them that experience will trump the outsider. bush has said his 91-year-old father is so mad about trump, he sometimes throws shoes at the tv when he's on. when he threw out the first pitch at a recent playoff game, his wife barbara had a campaign sticker right on her walker. and going back to those poll numbers out of iowa many credit the carson surge to his numbers
7:05 am
with evangelicals, those voters connecting with carson. it's those same type of voters that helped the last two republican winners in iowa, rick santorum and mike huckabee, who, george, as you know, are still many the race, as well. >> yes, but they're lagging behind. thanks. let's talk to matt dowd right now. our political analyst and start out with donald trump behind carson in iowa. see him going after carson, his low energy. even raising questions about his religion. will this work? >> i think this is a unique territory for donald trump because he's now in second place in a state the first time in over 100 days and he's never faced this before. he's also never faced somebody like ben carson in this and his ability to attack him in the same way he attacked jeb bush and others. ben carson just doesn't respond. what donald trump doesn't want to become is the frank burns to a trapper john, who is the doctor at "m.a.s.h." that's what donald trump has to fear. >> he started out as the front-runner, jeb bush, and now
7:06 am
in the middle of the pack. facing a course correction. what went wrong? >> i think the premise of his campaign was probably off from the beginning. i think jeb bush's problem is both the jeb part and the bush part. bush part is that people don't, many republicans like the bush family but do not want bush as a third term in the course of this. and the other part, jeb's performance on the trail has been underwhelming, by most people's accounts. at the last two debates and even in speeches it's been underwhelming in the course of the campaign. he has to change that. that's why the debate coming up is so important. >> his team is starting to raise questions about marco rubio, senator from florida, they're calling him the gop obama. >> yeah, it's interesting to me. this is a brash young rookie like in "any given sunday" taking on the experienced, sort of aging quarterback. and they don't like it at all. they thought this was their time. and this other senator from florida, the same state, he's taking on terms, and actually becoming more popular, is both personally upsetting and may impact the race. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. robin? we turn to dramatic new details from that whale-watching tour that left at least five
7:07 am
people dead. one person is still missing and abc's neal karlinsky is on the scene for us on vancouver island. good morning, neal. >> reporter: robin, good morning. we're learning a lot of new information about just what went on out there. one of the women in the water at the time was apparently pregnant. two others clung together for survival, sharing a single lifejacket between them. this morning, just the top of the huge "leviathan ii" visible above water. and our first look at some of the survivors just minutes after being plucked from the water, huddled under a tarp exhausted. 13 owe their lives to ken brown and his partner, who saw an emergency flare go up and raced towards it. >> we saw the flare and knew we were going to assist and help. >> reporter: survivors in the water clinging to whatever they could find, parts of the boat or even rocks. >> we picked up one guy that was hanging off the sunken boat by -- i don't know what he was hanging on to, the door or side of the boat or what. but he was hanging on for dear life.
7:08 am
>> reporter: we journeyed out to see the 65-foot whale-watching boat that went down with 27 people on board. you can just make out the name "leviathan ii." look at it. they've towed it off into the cove and the rcmb has been guarding it and have had divers in the water as well. five british citizens never made it out of the water alive. a sixth person remaining missing. but 21 people did survive the 30 minutes of hell in 55-degree water, not knowing if anyone would come for them. officials with the whale-watching company which has run boat tours in these waters for 0 years, don't understand what went wrong. >> again, we are all deepened saddened this has happened. our sincerest thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this. >> reporter: the cause remains unknown. an investigation is ongoing. survivors said it just seemed to go down without any warning at all. george? >> thanks, neal. the latest on the battle against isis. president obama set to decide whether to put more troops
7:09 am
closer to the battle even on the ground in syria. and abc's cleef chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz in washington with the details. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. the administration is weighing a number of options that could expose our troops to more danger. one option is using forward air controllers on the ground to call in air strikes. that makes it easier to find and confirm targets. and "the washington post" is reporting that the president will also consider putting a small team of special operations troops on the ground in syria with those moderate syrian rebels to advise and assist, george. >> martha, this comes after the death of one of those troops in that raid on the isis prison last week. >> reporter: it could be very similar. the options in iraq and syria would not, on paper, put the u.s. forces in direct combat. but as we have seen, that is always a possibility, george. >> okay. martha raddatz, thanks very much. all right. and now to that deadly homecoming parade crash in oklahoma. the driver is now being held on $1 million bond.
7:10 am
abc's ryan owens is in stillwater, oklahoma, with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as this college town mourns, the suspect made her first court appearance. the judge agreed with the district attorney that she's a direct threat to this community. but her family is coming to her defense, saying there's more to this story. the driver caught on tape plowing into a homecoming parade. 25-year-old adacia chambers is being held on a million dollars bond this morning. in court monday she appeared via video from the jail. only the judge could see her. not even her own family. >> the little girl i raised wouldn't have been -- done something like this. >> reporter: prosecutors are awaiting toxicology results but they believe chambers was high on drugs when she got behind the wheel saturday morning, killing 4 and injuring a staggering 47 others at oklahoma state university. >> we're gonna need a bunch of help.
7:11 am
>> reporter: chambers' father insists his daughter doesn't take drugs. >> i'm not going to believe that until they show me proof. >> reporter: her boyfriend, who saw her the morning of the crash, says she was not impaired when she left for work at this local restaurant. >> i've never seen her take any prescription medication, never used drugs. >> reporter: the district attorney says chambers will be charged with four counts of second-degree murder. one each for the retired professor and his wife, the mba student, and the 2-year-old boy, who lost their lives. the judge ordered a psychological evaluation. her attorney says she's mentally ill and doesn't remember the crash. >> i said, and of the people you collided with, four were killed. and she's like, okay. and that was it. >> reporter: during that court apeern, the prosecutor told the judge, another victim from this crash is in very grave condition at the hospital. and that a a fifth murder charge
7:12 am
may be coming soon. george? >> my goodness, okay, ryan, thanks very much. we're going to turn to that tv news helicopter crew that became part of the story, springing into action when they spotted a small plane crash. abc's mary bruce has the details. >> reporter: a television crew to the rescue. our abc affiliate wplg in the air over ft. lauderdale in their news chopper, sky 10, when they spot the terrifying scene below. a plane carrying two passengers down in the everglades. debris strewn across a swampy marsh. that's the pilot there tuck in the cockpit trapped under the trees. >> we have three patients, one patient's going to be a trauma alert. that's the pilot. he needs to be extricated. >> reporter: with the emergency crews 11 minutes away sky team 10 leaps into action, landing their helicopter, dropping off engineer juan rodriguez to help. >> trying to get into the cockpit and see how we can help and when we saw the pilot, got a bloody face. >> reporter: the plane carrying
7:13 am
two lawyers from a jacksonville law firm. you can see one here trying to comfort the pilot. they both walked away with minor injuries. >> i was in constant contact with air traffic control and they were querying us on the location, the amount of people on board, and their welfare. >> reporter: when first responders arrive, watch as they peel back the front of the plane cutting the pilot out of the wreckage. >> his lower extremities, his legs were entangled underneath that cockpit. how it landed certainly is a testament to the pilot's skill in preventing further injury or even death. >> reporter: once free, he is gingerly placed on a stretcher and air-lifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition. the crew of sky team 10 happy they were in the right place at the right time. >> i don't consider us part of the news. you know, we're helping any way we can. >> reporter: for "good morning america," mary bruce, abc news, atlanta. >> they did help. and we hope that pilot's okay.
7:14 am
now we turn to amy with today's other top stories. new tensions overnight with china. >> that's right, george. a u.s. missile destroyer has entered the south china sea in a disputed island chain that china claims is within its ter tomorr territorial waters. china is calling it illegal and a threat to chinese sovereignty saying it will take all necessary measures to protect its territory. well, the frantic search for survivors is intensifying as the death toll rises from monday's powerful earthquake in afghanistan and pakistan. about 400 people are now confirmed dead. more than 4,000 homes are destroyed or damaged. those numbers are expected to rise as rescue teams reach remote villages impacted. breaking overnight a budget breakthrough in washington could be john boehner's final act as speaker of the house. boehner and other republican leaders have announced a deal with the white house which would avoid a government shutdown and debt crisis. it calls for $80 billion in increased spending.
7:15 am
a final vote could come tomorrow. well, a scare in the tennessee mountains. a couple found this bear breaking into a car in the parking lot, opening the door, jumping in and -- >> oh, the car door -- [ horn honking ] >> -- yep, started beeping the the horn. looking for food before he finally ran away empty-handed. taking a stand against the black friday frenzy. a major retailer is refusing to open on black friday this year. sporting goods store rei won't be opening its doors and won't be processing any sales online either. but the company will pay its employees not to go to work but instead to spend time outdoors. the ceo released this video with his desk in front of a mountain backdrop saying, it's a statement of the company's values to ditch shopping on plaque friday and enjoy the great outdoors instead. >> hear, hear. >> yes, anything -- he says we're all opting out side. >> i like it.
7:16 am
>> you like that? you like that? he's hoping it'll catch on. not sure that's going to work. good for them. >> keep hope alive. thank you, amy. thank you. the wait for the world series is finally over and you have to wait just 30 seconds for a preview. >> it is coming up on 7:17 and we have the first pitch of baseball's fall classic just hours away now. both the mets and the royals looking to break long championship droughts. we're talking going back to the 1980s. abc's t.j. holmes is at kauffman stadium in k.c. for game one.
7:17 am
good morning to you, t.j. >> reporter: yeah, robin. it's finally here. hopefully, we'll get the game in. it's been raining pretty crazy all morning long. thai trying to protect the field. hopefully, mets, and royals, will hit the field tonight. tonight's the night. the mets taking on one of the smallest market teams in the majors. for kansas city, the agony of defeat is fresh. the royals lost last year's world series to the san francisco giants in seven games. let's take a look at the scoreboard. over the course of history, the mets have won the world series twice. the last time was 29 years ago. the royals only grabbed the crown once, 30 years ago. >> there's been so much hope without it coming to fruition and both sides, i think, are eager to try to win the trophy
7:18 am
again. >> reporter: so what can we expect as the teams prepare to face off? >> that is hit well down the line. >> reporter: the mets' power pitchers averaging pitches over 95 miles an hour. and the royals have the majors' best batting average against that speed. but while the royals are stacked with big letters, the mets have a not-so-secret weapon of their own. home run hero daniel murphy. the miracle player on fire with an incredible streak -- scoring home runs in his past six post-season games. and while fans in kansas city are determined to win after last year's defeat -- >> what a great year to be a mets fan. >> reporter: -- mets fans like jimmy kimmel will be holding out hope as the teams take the field tonight. >> do you guys expect this to happen? did you feel like you had a shot at it? >> you got to believe. >> reporter: so if you don't have a dog in the fight, guys, it's hard to root against either one of these teams. you want to pull for them both. both had their droughts. either one.
7:19 am
the bagels of new york, or the barbecue of kansas city. your pick. >> it is hard to root against either one. they are so exciting to watch. both of them. you'll be there every step of the way for us, t.j. holmes. thank you for that. so much more ahead. caught on camera, a police officer violently arresting a student, ripping her from her desk, as you see. what really happened? the sheriff is now speaking out. a deadly mystery, a hollywood assistant's body found after she vacationed on jennifer aniston and justin theroux's honeymoon. the mystery is growing this morning. and a brand-new tire warning that could affect millions of americans. brian ross standing by with a first of its kind investigation. come on back. me on back.

release the results of its first of its kind investigation into why that happens. as these safety tests show, even a skilled driver who knows a tire is about to blow cannot keep control. >> what's your emergency? >> yes, i just have seen a bad accident. a little girl swung out on the road. >> reporter: despite a series of recalls, it's something far too many americans learn too late. kristin rose of atlanta was badly injured when a tire on her car fell apart. she was unaware it had been recalled years earlier as unsafe. >> the next thing i know i hear a loud pop and then i mean basically everything just went so -- i mean so fast. it's a big blur. >> reporter: the tire that florida police say was at fault in this church van accident had been under recall for more than a year. but no one knew. two adults died. ten teenagers were hospitalized. that accident helped lead to today's national transportation
7:42 am
safety board investigation of the badly flawed tire recall system. >> when you see 33,000 accidents a year relating to defective tires, we know we have a serious tire problem. and a good piece of that relates to recalls. >> reporter: the ntsb investigation also looked at aged tires. safety engineers say depending on how they're maintained and used they can begin to lose their tread and separate after as little as six years. >> sometimes a consumer will look at a tire and not know that there is an aging problem because the aging problem is not necessarily visible. >> reporter: but no current law or industry standard prevents the sale of aged tires. and an abc news investigation last year found plenty of them for sale, described as perfectly safe. in new york, 8 1/2-year-old tires. in rhode island, 9-year-old tires, in san francisco, tires that were 11 and 15 years old. >> unbelievable, brian. >> yes, indeed. ford, gm, and chrysler all recommend that tires that are more than six years old are replaced.
7:43 am
the industry says there's no real need to have a firm limit on that because of age. but what happens is you get a tire like this and you do a test. you put a coin -- >> that was old school. remember, our dads used to tell us -- >> heads above that's fine. this tire is ten years old and would be considered unsafe by many. only way to find it. you have a code. you see right here. 4105. >> what is 4105? >> that means it was made in the 41st week of 2005 so it's ten years old. but unless you know that code you have no way to figure that out. and sometimes you to climb under the car to find it. because it's on the interior. >> why don't they just put the date? >> very good question. very difficult for drivers, consumers to know how old their tires are and they should. >> i just told you that i have an old car that i keep in connecticut. it has original tires. i am looking for that. >> 20 years old? >> yes. >> get new tires. coming up, fear taken to a whole new level. three people buried alive on live tv. come on back. to the used car br

8:11 am
scoring multimillion-dollar salaries. but this morning, one nba entertainer is calling a foul on low pay. former milwaukee bucks cheerleader lauren herington filing a lawsuit against the team for allegedly being paid less than minimum wage. >> they hold you to such a high standard, but yet that's what they pay you. so it is kind of disheartening. and they expect you to put in so much time and so much effort for it. >> reporter: in the suit, the first of its kind in the nba, herington says dancing for the bucks was more like a full-time job with part-time pay. and that during the 2013-'14 season, she spent hours practicing, prepping, and performing, but was paid only $65 per home game, $30 for practices. and $50 for special appearances, which she claims was an average of $3 to $5 an hour for the time
8:12 am
she worked. well below wisconsin's 7.25 minimum wage. also claiming she was paid nothing for the required maintenance. >> they didn't pay for the haircuts, the nails, the tanning. we're dealing with women that are 19, 20, 21 years old and really don't have the resources to pay for those things. >> reporter: the nfl faced similar claims last year when a former cheerleader sued the oakland raiders. suits against the buffalo bills, the jets, the tampa bay buccaneers, and the cincinnati bengals followed. the bills and the jets' suits are still pending while the others have settled. >> you hear the allegations that some of these women are not even getting minimum wage, i don't think that there's any fan in the country who would say that that's fair. >> reporter: in a statement, the milwaukee bucks tell abc news, "we treat all of our employees fairly including our bucks dancers and pay them fairly and in compliance with federal and state law." the nba also telling us overnight, "we work with our teams to ensure that they comply with all applicable wage and working condition laws."

8:16 am
>> i think it worked for him. i think that he had so much energy that i actually had to stop him from like climbing up the walls sometimes. yeah. so it really helped him in rehearsal that he didn't peak. he was with me the whole time. he had a lot of focus, so for that i think it was an advantage. >> what was the high point for you, hayes? >> boy, there's definitely ups and downs with being my age and whatnot, so you just kind of find your advantages and use them, and, frankly, i think having emma as my partner, she used me and my age and my demographic to our advantage. and had a great time on "dancing with the stars," and made some really great memories. >> i'll bet you did and i got to ask you about the switchup night. alek skarlatos' broken nose. what happened there? >> i felt so bad, honestly like and when they took him to the hospital, it was just awful. i basically turned and i just clipped him with my elbow, and we heard this awful just crack like sound.
8:17 am
oh, i was devastated. but he -- we're still close. we're still great like friends and i'm glad that he doesn't hate me for -- >> he doesn't hate you. i guess erin trapped you to go on this date maybe? >> we did go on a date, yeah. we'll see. >> we'll see what happened. >> and he danced with a broken nose. >> i should because i kind of broke his nose. >> okay. who's going to go all the way? >> i want to see alek go all the way. not just because i broke his nose. >> there you go. >> you know, you definitely got to root for the people you become close with in the season and i became close to carlos. i got to give it to him. he's doing really well. >> okay. we got a little split right there. great to have you guys on this morning. "dancing with the stars" is on monday at 8:00, 7:00 central right here on abc. now let's go over to amy. >> all right, george. thank you. now to our series "modern romance." and an important question, is facebook helping or hurting your relationship? well, we asked you to share some of your relationship goals and got a wide range of responses making it clear that now more
8:18 am
than ever, what we say and do online is changing how we live our romantic lives. let's face it, social media makes it hard to remain anonymous. >> okay, so after a quick scan of his facebook, twitter, tumblr pinterest and instagram, here's what i know. >> privacy is dead? >> reporter: everyone getting the hashtag treatment. researchers began to ask what effect does social media have on our love lives? >> if i have tagged you and say that i love you, you're tagging yourself in front of all of your friends and all of their friends and family. >> reporter: some of the biggest negative factors include stalking, distrust, and jealousy. but social media is still such a new phenomenon that only a handful of studies have been done and the results decidedly mixed. >> definitely take all of these studies on social media with a grain of salt. >> reporter: for example, one recent study looked at 205 facebook users between the ages of 18 and 82 finding in general that relationships soured for people who had been together for
8:19 am
less than three years and had high levels of facebook use. however, another recent study finds that pairs who share everything from their status to pictures on facebook could be in it for the long haul. all right, here with me now, the author of "the modern girl's guide to life," jane buckingham, and, jane, can you explain that discrepancy? i mean, it seems to counter one another. does facebook or social media help or hurt a relationship? >> well, you know, the study had different criteria, different lengths of relationship, different ages. so you always have to be careful when you look at these things to see what they're based on. you know, we did a study of a thousand 18 to 34-year-olds and what it said was that 81% of people said they were actually fine if their partner never posted about them. so, you know, i think that people really vary in how they feel. and they also said that 33%, they actually never do post about their relationship, so i think some people are actually
8:20 am
much more private than we think. and you have to be careful about your relationship and some people want to be private about it. having said that, 48 president of them did say that they do stalk other people's relationships on social media. so they're looking to see if people are breaking up, what's going on. >> or comparing their relationship to others. >> yes, and i think that is one of the problems, and when we look at sort of the dos and don'ts in your relationships, that's actually one of the first don'ts, which is don't try to keep up with the joneses because i think when you do that, you're always thinking, my partner is not as romantic. >> because people usually only post the beautiful vacation photos and all the amazing things they're doing. >> exactly, and it's cumulative so it's not just your life, it's everybody's life that you're comparing it to. so how could anybody keep up to that? and it's impossible. and then -- >> no one is posting the fights. >> no. everybody's life is perfect on social media, and your life seems really, really boring. and then, you know, i think one of the other don'ts is that
8:21 am
social media makes it so much easier, frankly, to be bad, to cheat. you know, the analogy i use is like dieting. i could barely keep my hands off this candy for five minutes, so if you download -- yeah, right, no, not yet. but if you download the bad apps and if you download the things that make it easier to have temptation in front of you, then you're going to be naughty, so don't. >> there are some app recommendations you do have for couples online. these are really interesting ones that i didn't know about. >> yeah, they're sort of fun. one is fix a fight. so if you and i get into a fight or your partner and you get into a fight, you can just sort of download it. now, look, it's not going to replace in person. if you're away or feeling like you're in trouble, then you do that. you can look at the intensity, wasn't too bad, this one. and then there's another one called avocado where you can kind of send your spouse or partner a happy face. this i love. i'm obsessed with calendaring so you can sort of calendar with your partner. and then also for android, there's one called lockbox. so on their lock screen, you can
8:22 am
