7:04 am
look at the rain up the i-95 corridor. wet start and clearer skies and through the afternoon. i can't believe the size of some of these hailstones. really incredible. >> all right, rob, thank you. now to a big health alert about the zika virus. top government health officials sounding the alarm this morning saying the virus is, quote, scarier than they thought and could spread through more of the u.s. than previously believed. they initially thought 12 states were at risk but now that number growing to 30 and fears that it could rise as the temperature heats up. here's what officials had to say. >> everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought. >> the more and more we learn, the more and more you get concerned about the scope of what this virus is doing. >> joining us now with more is abc's chief women's health correspondent dr. jen ashton. i know you're very concerned about this. when you hear top health officials using the word like scarier, what's the growing concern here? >> well, i mean, first of all, there are more questions than answers at this time, robin. as you heard the cases in the u.s. are up although that is
7:05 am
still now associated with travel. summer is coming. there are 4 million babies born in this country every year. so the potential for a lot of people to be affected by this is there and for the country's top doctors to use this kind of language is very significant. >> we've heard about the small brain size but what more are we learning? >> well, we know that zika can affect all stages in pregnancy and we think that it also affects the placenta, can affect stillbirth, miscarriage, pregnancy loss and, of course, affect the central nervous system. this looks like a very bad actor. >> what are you telling your patients? >> well, listen, i have several pregnant patients right now in their first trimester. control the things you can control. if you can delay or avoid going to the caribbean right now, do so. and then it's all about minimizing exposure, maximizing prevention, especially as we get into the summer months, cover up and use that mosquito repellant. >> as you said summer is just about here. >> this is concerning to obstetricians, women, pregnant people, everyone in the country. >> keep an eye on this one. we move now on to the race
7:06 am
for the white house. big vote in new york just seven days away. and a new poll shows hillary clinton with a double-digit lead here and both sides hitting hard and sanders pushes hard for an upset. abc's cecilia vega tracking it all. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is what's at stake in new york. there are more delegates up for grabs here than all of the last five contests combined. both sides need to win here. this morning, the candidates are putting their new york street cred front and center. bernie sanders overnight celebrating his new york roots. >> i honestly cannot believe how many people are here tonight. >> reporter: while hillary clinton is taking on two opponents simultaneously, donald trump. >> he says we should punish women who have abortions. >> there has to be some form of punishment. >> reporter: and sanders. >> i think i can both walk and chew gum at the same time. >> reporter: and now vice president joe biden asked about a woman in the oval office, his answer -- >> there's no problem. we're going to be able to elect a woman in this country.
7:07 am
>> reporter: but then his aides stepped in. >> that's it. >> that's all right. they're both qualified. overwhelmingly qualified to be president. >> reporter: but this morning it's one of clinton's new york events that's making big headlines. taking the stage over the weekend with mayor bill de blasio and a character from the hit broadway show "hamilton." their comedy skit drawing groans from the audience. >> thanks for the endorsement, bill. took you long enough. >> sorry, hillary, i was running on cp time. >> that's not -- i don't like jokes like that, bill, that's not -- >> cautious politician time. i've been there. >> reporter: cp time meaning colored people's time. overnight, the mayor whose wife is african-american telling cnn it was all a joke. >> it was clearly a staged show.
7:08 am
it was a scripted show. every actor involved including hillary clinton and leslie odom jr. thought it was a joke on a different convention. i think people are missing the point here. >> reporter: and de blasio's office says the only person this comment was meant to mock was the mayor that no one intended to offend anyone. the only official comment that we've received from hillary clinton's team is in response to that de blasio comment saying, robin, we agree with the mayor. >> all right there. thank you, cecilia. now to the republicans. a new poll showing donald trump with a big lead here in new york. the primary just a week away. abc's jon karl is in albany, new york, with the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. trump has a commanding lead here in his home state, but he is complaining loudly about a republican primary system that he says is corrupt and crooked. in the heart of new york state
7:09 am
an energetic crowd for native son donald trump. ♪ but even as thousands cheer him on, trump is fuming. >> they said we'll do it by delegate. they said they're going to do it by delegate. oh, isn't that nice? >> reporter: after getting shut out of delegates in colorado which held a convention instead of a primary, the republican front-runner is on a warpath. >> because, if i go to the voters of colorado, we win colorado. so, it's a crooked, crooked system. >> reporter: trump even tweeted this video of a man in colorado burning his republican party registration. >> i've been a republican all my life, but i will never be a republican again. >> reporter: and he's saying the system is even rigged against democrat bernie sanders. >> bernie wins here, bernie wins there but he can't win and i say, oh, it's rigged just like ours. it's rigged. it's disgusting. >> reporter: but trump didn't show up in colorado and his campaign has been outmaneuvered by team cruz in mobilizing
7:10 am
grassroots volunteers. cruz is now taunting trump on twitter writing #whiningisntwinning. >> donald has been yelling and screaming. a lot of whining. i'm sure some cursing. and some late-night fevered tweeting. when people vote against him they're stealing the election. it's a really odd notion. well, what is this democracy of which you speak? >> reporter: trump says he's starting to think about potential vice presidential running mates and in an interview he floated names of people he likes including john kasich, scott walker and, get this, his old nemesis marco rubio. george. >> i guess they'll let bygones be bygones. okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's talk with matt dowd about
7:11 am
this, beginning with those complaints about the delegate process, this is just the beginning. when it comes to fighting for these delegates, just about anything goes. >> well, absolutely. and you know, george, i faulted donald trump's campaign, if he doesn't make the 1,237 delegates it's because he hasn't put together a professional campaign and grown in the course of this but i think donald trump is right about this. this system is rigged and that doesn't mean it's crooked or corrupt but it is rigged. it's rigged in a way just like wall street is rigged, just like many other things are rigged. to me it's a lot like stealing signs in baseball. it's not against the rules but it is a rigged system that gives advantages to one person over another. >> well, both parties want to give advantages -- want the delegates to give advantages to the established candidates and that's why you have the superdelegates on the democratic side. meantime, you're about to see a big win for donald trump here and it's a big delegate prize here in new york. >> well, i think this is a huge thing for donald trump. he has suffered some losses, as you know, recently in the course of this but he has the capacity if the polls are right which
7:12 am
they look like because they're consistent to win almost every single delegate out of new york and then go into the next five states in a very good position to pick up a lot of delegates. it's not out of the question, i know that we've been talking a lot about contested conventions and it is highly likely but if donald trump puts a series of victories together starting with new york he has still a capacity to put this away before the conventions. >> still has the chance. meantime, on the democratic side you really can't say that it's must win for both sides. >> yeah, i think it is must win for different reasons. it's not math must win for hillary clinton. it's sort of save her reputation. she has to win her home state but bernie sanders needs to win this state, new york, to change the conversation. he's got a math problem against him. if he wins new york it totally changes the conversation in the course of this. >> okay, matt dowd, thanks very much. >> one week to go, george. all right, now, we have the latest on the killing of will smith. his former coach for the saints, sean payton, is speaking out and new surveillance video that appears to show the moment that
7:13 am
led to the shoot-out as officials try to determine what really happened. abc's ryan smith is on the scene there in new orleans. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. mourners have been paying their r. respects shredding tears at this memorial, as they pay and as they grieve, new surveillance video setting an entire new light on this, an alleged hit-and-run happening moments before the shooting. overnight, abc news obtaining new surveillance video seemingly shedding light on the deadly road rage shooting death of former nfl star will smith. watch closely. on this surveillance footage provided to abc news by a restaurant two blocks from the scene of the shooting this hummer, resembling the police's description of the shooter's vehicle, appears to stop suddenly, seemingly bumped by a car matching smith's mercedes suv. then, as the hummer appears to pull over the suv speeding off, seconds later, the hummer apparently following. hayes' lawyer claiming his
7:14 am
client was not the aggressor in the fatal shooting just minutes later. >> prior to the actions that led to mr. smith's death my client was involved in a hit-and-run, someone hit him. the person failed to pull over. my client trailed behind the person in an effort to get their license plate number. my client also called 911 while he's on the phone with 911 that's when the three-car accident occurs. >> reporter: police claiming the 28-year-old hayes shot smith several times in the torso and back. after the two exchanged words during an altercation, over hayes bumping his hummer into smith's suv at the crime scene. and smith's wife caught in the gunfire. heard here screaming in pain. >> i need an ambulance. my leg has been shot! >> reporter: with hayes right there being handcuffed, and with his client now behind bars on $1 million bail, hayes' attorney laying the groundwork for his client's defense. are you saying that your client felt threatened by the presence
7:15 am
of something smith had or someone in his party had? >> everybody out there felt threatened. >> by smith? >> by someone other than mr. hayes. >> reporter: hayes has been charged with second-degree murder and he has not yet entered a plea but smith's death adding to the discussion about guns in america. saints coach sean peyton advocating for more gun control saying in an interview, quote, 200 years from now they're going to look back and say, what was this madness all about? robin. >> coach payton was very outspoken. now to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with a major bank heist. the bank heist right here in new york city and it looked like it was straight out of a movie. the thieves opened an access hatch on the roof and then cut a hole in the ceiling of the vault. once inside, they made off with $280,000 cash and looted the safe deposit boxes, cameras did not record a thing. no alarm sounded, leading some to suspect this was an inside job. well, a former south
7:16 am
carolina police officer has been sentenced to three years probation for fatally shooting a suspect. newly released video shows officer justin craven shooting into the car of 68-year-old ernest satterwhite. after trying to pull him over for suspected drunk driver. the officer said satterwhite tried to grab his gun. well, a school police officer in san antonio seen slamming a 12-year-old girl to the ground has now been fired. school officials say he initially reported the incident as an accidental fall. crash tests out this morning show the ford f-150 is the only full-size truck to earn a top rating from the insurance industry. other trucks rated lower for not protecting the crash dummies' legs. and finally, well, this was a little too close for comfort. a tourist taking pictures on st. barts came within a hair and i mean a hair of getting hit by a landing plane. the man ducking just in time. the plane's wheels actually grazing his hand. but you see without missing a beat he just kept on snapping his pictures.
7:17 am
that airport is considered one of the most dangerous in the world and the man who was videoing him taking the photograph said it hit my hand, he was yelling it, and i don't think he realized how lucky he was -- >> how about yelling, get out of the way. >> more appropriate. >> unbelievable. unbelievable. all right, want to turn now to a big rescue after a 17-year-old was lost at sea. her fun family kayak trip taking a dramatic turn quickly becoming a life-or-death situation. this nightvision camera shows 17-year-old karlin o'neill lost and all alone in her kayak fighting for survival in the waters near tampa, florida. lost at sea for eight hours trying to balance her kayak with both hands after a ship blew past her and knocked her paddle into the sea. her kayak heading straight for the gulf of mexico. the teen who originally set out on the trip with her mom and sister fell a bit behind them then lost her paddle. >> when like the sun starting setting and nighttime came i got really scared.
7:18 am

7:31 am
well. they did a great job. >> yeah, they really did. we're going to hear from all four coming up. but we'll begin with the father on trial this morning charged with killing his son. accused of intentionally leaving the toddler in a hot car for hours while he exchanged explicit messages with women. abc's gio benitez is here with the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: robin, good morning. this is sure to be an emotional case, we're talking about a little boy left alone in that car for seven hours. his dad says it was an accident. but prosecutors say it was murder. this morning the case of a little boy's death that shocked the nation heading back to court. lawyers selecting a jury from a pool of more than 500 people for the trial of justin ross harris. the father charged with murdering his 22-month-old baby boy by leaving him in a hot suv. >> we look forward to the case running its course and ultimately justice being served in this matter. >> reporter: 35-year-old harris charged with murder and child cruelty has pleaded not guilty
7:32 am
claiming his son's death was an accident, that cooper died of heatstroke in 2014, and that he accidentally left him in the backseat of his suv outside of his atlanta-area office for seven hours on a summer day with temperatures soaring to 90 degrees. >> cooper's death was a horrible gut-wrenching accident. >> he kept saying, what have i done? what have i done? >> reporter: but prosecutors painting a very different picture, one of a double life. investigators claim that, as cooper sat in that hot suv, harris was in his office exchanging sexually explicit messages with other women who were not his wife, including a 16-year-old girl. >> while that baby was out there, he was showing pictures of his private parts to other people. >> reporter: police say just days before his son's death harris watched videos about hot car deaths online and even allegedly searched how to survive in prison. just two months ago harris' wife
7:33 am
filed for divorce but as cooper's mom her attorneys say she will testify and intends to defend her ex-husband. >> she has never wavered and thinks ross did not do this intentionally, whether he was sexting or whatever the salacious allegations are, that it was not purposeful that he left cooper in the car. >> reporter: and jury selection could take as long as two weeks. the father faces those murder and child cruelty charges but he's also charged for some of those explicit messages that day with a minor. robin, this is a complicated case. >> it certainly is. joining us now abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams to help us break it down. we heard gio talking about the jury selection. what are both sides looking for here? >> if you're the defense you want jurors that won't prejudge him based on his sexting, right, they tried to get that part separated from the murder charge the judge wouldn't have it. so, you need jurors who are
7:34 am
going to be able to separate out bad guy having affair from did he kill a child. you might want someone more liberal if you're the defense. for the prosecution, i'd want parents of young children. i'd want parents of children this age to say, how could you possibly forget your child in a hot car? so that they simply would never believe that that could happen. >> as you said, the judge is going to allow this other evidence about him to be played in. what's that going to do? >> well, look, that's the motive. the prosecutors are going to argue that his motive was he wanted to move on with his life. he had these other women. his child was an impediment, et cetera, but it was a huge win for the prosecution that they're able to try these cases together because by saying that's the motive, it certainly doesn't make him look like a good guy at all and that's going to be a real challenge for the defense. >> and, okay, another challenge for the defense, basically they're saying it was a horrible mistake.
7:35 am
>> that's right. they're saying that this was just an accident, and this is where the legal standard is critical. proof beyond a reasonable doubt. >> right. >> they're going to have to prove, the prosecution, that he did this on purpose, that it was intentional, and that's going to be the challenge. >> a lot will be watching. all right, dan, thank you. we move on to that airport meltdown caught on camera. you see this enraged mom lashing out because a flight delay was ruining her family's dream vacation. now that delay eventually closed in on 12 hours and abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. we've all felt that frustration of a plane not getting there in time but in this case, bad weather, the runways were shut down but that didn't stop one woman from letting airport workers know what she thought. angry passengers surrounded the counter, where is their plane. >> if there's no flight just say there's no flight. >> reporter: this just discovered video shows a frustrated crowd waiting for a 9:00 p.m. flight from laguardia to miami on american airlines. >> i'm getting everyone's name here because you're all
7:36 am
[ bleep ]. >> reporter: but the flight wouldn't end up leaving until almost 9:00 the next morning. one woman fearing she and her two children might miss a disney cruise was not going quietly. >> don't give me this [ bleep ]. you're all going to pay for my disney cruise and you're going to pay for everything else here. >> reporter: but laguardia on that night was shut down because of strong winds. the jet they were waiting for had to circle to the south and told to divert to philadelphia. >> sitting here since 8:00. with a 9-year-old who's waiting for her vacation and my 13-year-old. >> reporter: and finally the jet arrives but the crew has worked so many hours that, according to regulations, they can't fly to miami so everyone had to wait until the next morning. even a passenger advocate says, you can't blame the airline. >> i hate to defend airlines as the consumer advocate all the time but when they've got airline weather-related problems, it messes up their entire system.
7:37 am
>> reporter: now, here is what we've learned about this flight. it got into miami the next day and disney says everybody that was booked on its cruise ship got on the ship so apparently the mother and children made that trip on the disney cruise line. one last thing to you, george and robin, the woman who released this video was kind of mad at american airlines but online people seem to be saying the woman kind of went a little bit too far in berating some of those counters. >> there's no doubt she went to far but you also realize, and i know you know this, you travel aviation as well. you save up a lot of money a lot of years for a trip. it does not defend what she did at all but you can understand her frustration. >> glad she got on the cruise. coming up -- the first ladies club. the new book out this morning making big claims about a rivalry between michelle obama and hillary clinton. and a warning about dating in the digital age. a mom of three disappears after meeting a man online. police make an arrest overnight.

but what makes this look on chelsea work, she's got a shoe that first of all is a slingback so has a covered toe. that's more professional than a bare sandal. the pointed toe in my experience and particularly if you're short like me, i'm 5'2" makes it feel a little more dressed and polished than a pure rounded toe, and i like the little detailing there, the silver circle on the shoe because sometimes if flats are completely undecorated, they can kind of melt into the ground. >> yes. >> which you don't want at work and i think this feels like it has a little more presence. >> yeah, i like that, and then i love this casual weekend look. that's so fun. i don't know if i'm cool enough to pull that off. >> you are definitely way cool, amy. you can pull that off. i think the trick here is that she's not wearing a running shoe. she's wearing a converse. it's a tennis shoe and that gives it a little bit more of -- >> and the dress. >> straight from the gym feeling. we know how to do it with jeans but she's got a floaty dress and denim jacket to keep it casual. >> the hardest thing, evening wear. >> how happy are you at 2:00 in

8:39 am
this is a gluten-free turkey meat loaf. so you got a little ketchup and i probably should have whipped this up before i put it in so i'll do it now, a little egg. you can throw in the milk for me. >> okay. what is this, soy? >> that's worcestershire sauce and some salt. and you literally mix that up. i got it on my dress, but that's okay, and then we're going to add it to your ground turkey. >> there you go. >> then you mix it all up, and then you stick it in, and then the very -- then you coat it with -- you want to coat the -- >> all right. i will do that. >> yeah. >> tell us about the mac and cheese. it's not mac and cheese, right? >> it is mac and cheese, but i have some cauliflower in it to try and make it a little healthier. and when you put that in the oven, you put a little water in a different pan in the bottom and then your meat loaf will stay nice and moist.
8:40 am
>> pretty great. how do you get your kids to try the new foods? >> my kids are pretty adventurous in the kitchen. i've been doing -- wow, that's beautiful. >> there you go. couldn't do the processor. i can do this. >> they're pretty adventurous, but they do love kid food like mac and cheese which is why i added cauliflower to this to sort of sneak in some vegetables. and they're pretty -- you know, this salad with the blue cheese. they won't try bleu cheese. >> how about dessert? >> i'm really proud of our dessert section. my last book was completely gluten free and dairy free. this book is more, you know, there's some cheese and some dairy but our dessert is completely sugar free and vegan and dairy free. >> fantastic. >> yeah, so that's a good one. we love that little key lime tart. >> it is excellent stuff. the book is "it's all easy." it's available right now. thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having me. and coming up "barbershop," got cedric the
