>> reporter: but tonight, questions about whether clinton is ready to battle a rival like trump. >> some of your supporters would say that you have to fight back a lot harder against donald trump. that his attacks against you and your husband are left unanswered. >> i'm going to run a campaign about the american people. he can run his campaign any way he wishes, but i'm going to stay focused on what matters to voters. >> reporter: and she's getting help. in japan, president obama saying world leaders are worried about a possible trump presidency. >> they are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements. but they're rattled by it. >> reporter: and tonight, donald trump is shrugging off president obama's claim that some world leaders are rattled by the prospect that he could win the oval office, saying that in business, sometimes when you rattle people, it's a good thing, not a bad thing. david? >> cecilia vega with us again tonight. cecilia, thank you. we're going to move on now to a mid-air scare involving two
american fighter jets. their f-18 superhornets colliding off the coast of north carolina. the coast guard and commercial fishermen pulling all four crew members out of the water. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz tonight on t training mission gone wrong. >> reporter: the coast guard rescued the naval aviators within hours. two of them from the water, the other two had been picked up by a passing fishing boat. they were brought to the hospital within hours. the two jets were flying 24 miles off of cape hatteras, a training mission, likely flying in tight formation, like these air force jets, just a few feet separating them. it is not clear what parts of the airplanes hit, but even wingtips striking could bring the planes down, says former f-18 pilot steve ganyard. >> flying formation in tactical jet aircraft is very dynamic, and there's very little room for error. but the first rule is, don't run into the other guy.
>> reporter: the jets are a total loss, which means about $140 million at the bottom of the ocean. but of course, david, we are all grateful the pilots and crew survived. david? >> that's for sure. all right, martha raddatz with us tonight. thank you, martha. back here at home, the sex scandal rocking an american campus. baylor university today apologizing for blocking alleged sex assault victims from coming forward. the school today saying it will fire its football coach, after numerous assault allegations against players. a law firm investigating the claims says the program did not report cases. the university also demoting president ken star. his name may sound familiar. star investigated then-president bill clinton during the monica lewinsky scandal. now, to a major medical headline tonight. the new superbug scare here in the u.s. a powerful bacteria making its way to the u.s. for the first time. it's resistant to an antibiotic considered one of the last lines of defense. abc's linsey davis on the new concern tonight. >> reporter: it's what doctors have dreaded for years. a strain of bacteria so
resistant that the toughest antibiotics can't kill it. and it's almost here. tonight, the cdc is sounding the alarm, revealing that a woman in pennsylvania has become infected with a bug this countrtry has never seen before. >> the more we look at drug resistance, the more concerned we are. >> reporter: overuse of antibiotics has bred superbugs, resistant strains. 2 million infections in 2013 alone. even worse, 23,000 of those infections are fatal. this is the first strain ever found to be resistant to colistin, an old drug of last resort, rarely used because of its harsh side effects. >> the medicine cabinet is empty for some patients. it is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently. >> so, he says act urgently. linsey davis with us now. and we reported on antibiotics before being overused, so, what kind of conversation should you have with your doctor after this? >> reporter: right. don't ask your doctor for an antibiotic. you don't always need one. and if your doctor does
prescribe it for you, make sure you take it for the entire course, even if you start feeling better after a day or two. >> all right, good advice. linsey davis with us tonight. thank you, linsey. and, memorial day weekend almost here. 34 million americans are expected to be on the road, beginning tomorrow. the average price of gas now at $2.33 a gallon. abc's chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis on what to expect at the pump this weekend. rebecca? >> reporter: david, pump prices have been rising now for 15 straight days. but that national average tonight is still 40 cents lower than it was this time last year. making this memorial day weekend the cheapest for gasoline in a decade. so, who's got it the best? well, the gulf states, including mississippi, louisiana and texas are paying some of the lowest prices in the nation for gas. and even in california, where prices are the highest in the country, a gallon of gas is still $1 lower than it was this time last year. and while that $2 a gallon gas is firmly in the rear view mirror at this point, the experts tell me we can expect prices to stay below $2.40 in
the coming weeks. david? >> all right, rebecca, thanks so much. and there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this thursday. the breaking developments involving the mother of the so-called affluenza teen. the family had tried to blame a drunk driving crash that killed four on his privileged upbringing, that he didn't understand what he had done, and then fleeing to mexico. tonight, word coming in. new charges the mother is now facing. the frightening confrontation. strangers at her door. the text messages a daughter sent her mother, and the moment the people who broke in found her. and later tonight, take a look at this. incredible pictures coming in. this is boston harbor. a construction site. and if you can see right there, suddenly, the discovery. the new clues coming in tonight.
