was injured. multiple officers responded. the suspect then reportedly got away on foot, but was then encountered at a second location, where a second officer was shot. a tense standoff followed and of course, we'll stay on this story, as well. in the meantime, for the first time tonight, we are now hearing the desperate 911 calls after that little boy fell into the gorilla exhibit in cincinnati. the boy's mother watching as that endangered silverback gorilla hovered over her boy and then dragged him away. tonight here, that mother's call, and what those parents are now asking for. abc's alex perez is in cincinnati again tonight. >> reporter: tonight, for the first time, we are hearing the frantic calls to 911 in the moments after that boy fell into the gorilla exhibit. >> oh, god. oh, god. it's got his pants, he's taking the baby -- >> ma'am, listen to me. >> he's taking the baby into the cave. oh, my god. >> reporter: the 3-year-old's mother calling in as he was being dragged. >> my son fell in with the gorilla. there's a male gorilla standing over him. i need someone to contact the

out credit cards to pay for tuition? this was donald trump announcing the university with great fanfare back in 2005. tonight, his campaign standing behind the school. and all of it comes as a new national poll shows hillary clinton with a slight lead, 45% to 41%. abc's tom llamas tonight on how much students paid to go to trump university and what they got in return. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump in damage control, insisting trump university delivered on its promise to help students succeed. a promise he made himself in this trump u video. >> at trump university, we teach success. that's what it's all about. success. it's going to happen to you. >> reporter: but now, by court order, we're getting a glimpse into a trump university employee playbook, revealing hard-sell tactics used to get prospective students to pay tens of thousands of dollars for trump's real estate course. staffers told, quote, "money is never a reason for not enrolling in trump university.
if they really believe in you and your product, they will find the money." >> action is what trump university is all about. >> reporter: the playbook shows people were instructed to tell students, "this is not something we offer to just anyone." and, "you know who my boss is, right?" ♪ money >> reporter: how much did it all cost? up to $35,000. included in that? students got an unaccredited real estate course, involving a series of retreats, mentorship sessions with instructors, an online curriculum and access to a list of properties that were being foreclosed. and paper certificates of accomplishment like these. if they couldn't afford it, one former trump university employee testified, sales people told students, "it's okay. just max out your credit card." the playbook also recommending salesmen tell students that regardless of their financial situation, they can benefit from the course, saying, quote, "see how you might borrow from your own retirement account to finance real estate investme investments."
>> it was clearly a way just to separate people who were desperate to make money during hard economic times from their own cash and to get it into the pockets of mr. trump and his cronies. >> reporter: donald trump, now the focus of three separate lawsuits claiming trump university was a fraud. but the billionaire fighting back, blasting the judge who released those records. >> i have a judge who is a hater of donald trump. a hater. he's a hater. >> reporter: and team trump today providing us with this individual yes. video. glowing tributes with former students. >> the courses that i took were outstanding. >> amazing learning experience. >> we never felt pressured to do anything that we didn't want to do. >> reporter: but trump's aides refusing to answer any of our questions about trump university and that employee playbook. >> and tom llamas with us live from california tonight. tom, trump university isn't the only concern for donald trump tonight. he's also learned that the pga tour is moving the world golf championship from trump's miami resort to mexico now? >> reporter: david, for months, trump has railed against american companies leaving the u.s. for mexico, and tonight,
he's feeling it personally. the pga says this had nothing to do with politics, it's because they could not secure a sponsor at the trump resort. tonight, trump calling this a sad day for miami, the u.s. and the game of golf. and saying, quote, on mexico city, "i hope they have kidnapping insurance." >> tom llamas live in california. tom, thank you. meantime tonight, hillary clinton has her own new concerns. getting help today from jon bon jovi and senator cory booker in new jersey. but she might need more help in california. a new poll tonight showing clinton and bernie sanders in a virtual dead heat before the big primary. but it was donald trump who clinton targeted today, and abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail. >> you can't make this up. >> reporter: tonight, the sharpest words yet from hillary clinton, attacking donald trump and his trump university. >> this is just more evidence that donald trump himself is a fraud. >> reporter: a tough new tone. clinton going where many have said she should have gone much sooner.
>> he is trying to scam america the way he scammed all those people at trump u. >> reporter: but for some clinton supporters, she still isn't going far enough. >> she's just too polite. >> reporter: she's too polite? >> yes. >> reporter: what do you want to see her do? >> say, "shut up, donald." >> reporter: but now, a powerful new weapon joining into the fight. president obama, riding high in the polls, today unleashing on trump on everything from immigration to his tax plan. >> that is not going to make your lives better. that will help people like him. that's the truth. >> reporter: but before trump, clinton facing a tougher than expected primary fight in california. >> told me the campaign was over. if it is, i wonder why secretary clinton and her husband bill are back in california. >> and cecilia vega with us live tonight from newark. and cecilia, even if bernie sanders pulls off a win in california, hillary clinton knows what that's like. >> reporter: she knows exactly
what that's like, david. she won by wide margins in 2008 in california, but a reminder about that race. barack obama lost six of the last ten primaries back then, and still went on to clinch that nomination. david? >> cecilia vega with us again tonight. we turn next here, though, to a major bus crash on american highway. dozens of passengers rushed to the hospital. and abc's david kerley with the images coming in now from houston. >> reporter: the houston city bus, crushed, slamming into a sign pole. the driver trapped. a chaotic scene for first responders. >> there is about 30 people involved. >> reporter: nearly everyone on that bus was hurt. >> bodies is going everywhere. >> reporter: some passengers say they saw that black pickup truck run a stop sign and crash into the bus. then, the powerful impact of the bus into the pole. severely bending the structure. >> it felt like a bomb blast, so, i already knew right then and there, you know, try to get people out as best you can. >> reporter: 32 people were hurt, 28 of them taken to a hospital. >> i can't move my arm, my leg, i got a big old gash on my head. >> reporter: the driver of the
