7:01 am
biden calling on democrats to unite against donald trump. new details overnight in that terror attack in france. isis now claiming responsibility for killing a priest as the hostages speak out overnight detailing those terrifying moments. now new clues emerge about one of the teens behind the attack. the dramatic rescue caught on a deputy's body camera. gunfire rings out. the officer jumps in. >> i got you, i got you. >> pulling a mother to safety. then the hero goes back to help save her children. >> come here, buddy, come here. >> announcer: live from philadelphia, pennsylvania, this is a special edition of "good morning america," "your voice, your vote," the democratic national convention. and we do say good morning, america. and this was the moment, the democratic convention floor erupting in cheers for hillary clinton becoming the nominee.
7:02 am
clinton herself celebrating with a single word tweet, here it is, history. >> and that moment of history united that hall, robin. it was electric in this hall yesterday and bernie sanders helped make it happen and you can see him tear up there when his name was put in nomination by his brother, there's his brother larry sanders talking about their parents, a lot of emotion here yesterday. we have a lot coming up this morning including my interview with vice president biden. he is calling out vladimir putin and donald trump, making his case to the bernie sanders true believers, of course, biden is going to take the stage tonight along with president obama. but last night belonged to bill clinton. his tenth and most personal convention speech intimate conversational, ambling through his love story with the woman he called the real hillary, much of it so familiar after all these years on the national stage but, of course, it was another first, never before has a former president made the case for his wife on that stage. abc's cecilia vega was right there on the floor for all the big moments. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. a 42-minute speech from bill clinton.
7:03 am
this wasn't as we've seen him so many times at past conventions bill clinton addressing this convention hall as the former president, this time this was bill clinton the husband. it was a surprise appearance from hillary clinton as she crashed through the glass ceiling of american politics and officially clinched the democratic nomination. >> what an incredible honor that you have given me and i can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet. and if there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say, i may become the first woman president, but one of you is next. thank you all. i can't wait to join you in philadelphia. thank you. >> reporter: just before that bill clinton, in his tenth convention speech, this time not there as a former president but as a husband.
7:04 am
>> in the spring of 1971, i met a girl. >> reporter: with daughter chelsea looking on clinton sounding like a man telling a long family story, giving a play-by-play of their lives. >> i said, i really want you to marry me but you shouldn't do it. she smiled and looked at me like what is this boy up to? she said, that is not a very good sales pitch. >> reporter: a speech that was deeply personal and deeply political. >> and she is still the best darn change maker i have ever known. >> reporter: clinton also taking aim at a certain republican rival. >> what's the difference in what i told you and what they said? how do you square it? you can't. one is real. the other is made up.
7:05 am
and you just have to decide which is which, my fellow americans. >> reporter: earlier in the day, the big decision on the convention floor, a state by state roll call vote. >> for the next president of the united states. >> hillary rodham clinton. >> reporter: that delivered her the nomination. and the man who helped get her there, the very rival who once threatened to take it from her. >> and i move that hillary clinton be selected as the nominee of the democratic party for president of the united states. >> reporter: now here on the stage behind me bill clinton never actually mentioned the name donald trump but we don't expect that to be the case tonight, as you guys said, president obama, vice president joe biden will take the stage tonight. they will be talking about national security and the qualifications that they believe it takes to be commander-in-chief, guys. you can bet they will be trying to draw a stark contrast between donald trump and hillary clinton. >> i'm sure that will be the case, cecilia, thank you very much.
7:06 am
and as you said, george, this was his most personal convention speech yet. >> yeah, and in so many ways a bookend to the 1992 speech he gave on behalf of himself. in both speeches they used the -- the clintons used biography to beat back controversy. and i was really struck by the language, you know, had first line in the thing of 1971 i met a girl. back in 1992 he had the stark line i never met my father, he was killed in a car wreck on a rainy road three months before i was born. so he had the same kind of themes telling the personal story as a way, and he said it to get to know the real bill clinton then, the real hillary clinton this year. >> very similar. all right, george, now to the republicans, donald trump wasting no time reacting to bill clinton's speech last night tweeting about it before clinton even took the stage. abc's tom llamas is on the campaign trail with trump in miami. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning. donald trump was busy on twitter last night. he actually called the speech
7:07 am
highly overrated before bill clinton even took the stage. and then later tweeting this, many of bernie's supporters have left the arena. did bernie go home and go to sleep? robin. >> all right, tom, thank you very much. and tell us a little about what trump will be doing today. there's the ask me anything i believe. >> reporter: robin, that's right. later tonight, donald trump will be on reddit ask me anything event. we'll see what kind of questions he answers. >> it'll be interesting to see the questions he receives, as well. >> that will be something. we'll move on to my interview with joe biden. he's weighing in on why russia and vladimir putin might have hacked democratic e-mails to hurt hillary clinton as he calls for democrats to unite against donald trump. we started out with his message for the bernie-or-bust crowd. what do you say to one of those bernie delegates comes to you and says, listen, i'm not going for hillary, i'm standing by my
7:08 am
principles. >> i know you're going to go for hillary. i know you're -- >> how do you know? >> i just know because you're as moral as you say you are, i know you can't vote for trump. i know. >> one of the things they're angry about is leaked e-mails. do you think russia is behind it? >> i don't know about this particular dump of e-mails, but we do know that this is the modus operandi of russia. >> what would it say if they were trying to influence our election? >> totally consistent with who putin is. >> do you think he wants trump to win? >> i think he doesn't want hillary to win. i've traveled around the world over the last 7 1/2 years and i haven't found a single leader that said it's great, maybe we'll get a trump presidency. >> you think putin wants it? >> i think putin doesn't want a united nato. i think he doesn't want a united eu. i can see where a lot of our adversaries would think it's better to have someone who doesn't have any idea what they're doing than have somebody as tough as hillary. >> your reputation is the
7:09 am
working class guy. why are so many of them going for donald trump? >> well, i think there's two reasons. one, i think he has been very successful in playing on their fears, and there's not been enough focus on playing on their hopes, appealing to their better angels so, look, i don't know anybody rich or poor or well, you know, off or not who isn't concerned about isis. >> but you talked about that fear of isis. mike pence, it is extraordinary to think that 61 speakers came to the podium and not one named isis by name. this man, donald trump, will name our enemies without apology and he will defeat them. >> how is he going to defeat -- we have the single most significant homeland security of any country in the world and what are they doing, pence and trump, what they're doing is they're breaking up our alliances. these guys don't know what they're talking about. >> of course, he's going to be up on the stage tonight, tim kaine, vice presidential candidate on the stage, and president obama so another packed night, you can see more of my interview with vice
7:10 am
president biden on "this week" on sunday. let's bring in matt dowd. let's go back to bill clinton's speech and we were talking about this last night. he went through so much of their history, pretty glaring omission, 1998, the monica lewinsky scandal, impeachment. you think it was a mistake to omit that? >> he's a great storyteller. obviously a big part of conventions and campaigns are telling those stories. to me he left a big chunk that actually has impacted her life and her public life much more than most anything else has and everything else that caused her pain. i thought, while a great -- good speech it could have been a much more powerful speech if he had basically said and in this i've caused a lot of pain. that she's actually also had to work through besides all the political stuff. >> but still it was well received, his speech, last night. bernie sanders, we saw him getting emotional when his brother announced him and there were some protests, let's say there were some protests, there are still some bernie sanders supporters who are upset but seeing bernie sanders be the one to put hillary over the top and
7:11 am
to see bill clinton is the party at least a little more unified do you think today? >> you felt that last night. again, a first step of that was michelle obama i think you feel it in the audience and i think bill clinton actually helped do that and i thought the end with the video with all of the presidents which all one thing in common which was a man, and then she comes in at the end, i think this convention is ready to move forward and my guess is after this convention, 90, 92% of democrats are going to be with her. >> a lot of that on president obama. what does he need to do tonight? >> i think president obama's going to be probably the most -- one of the most powerful speeches at this convention. to me the 76ers play here. he's the dr. j, he's the one who goes above the rim, the best public speaker, the best orator, and i think he's going to bookend what bill clinton did with michelle and barack obama. >> 76ers. you're dating yourself a little bit. >> a little bit. >> there you go. know your audience. that's right, thank you, matt. we're going to move on now to that terror attack overseas. a catholic priest killed during mass in france after two
7:12 am
attackers stormed in, took hostages. isis is now claiming responsibility and this morning, we're learning more about the killers and the survivors. abc's alex marquardt is in normandy with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the small church where this brutal attack took place, that 86-year-old priest killed and this morning one of his parishioners in critical condition. and we now know that one of the attackers was well known to the authorities having been arrested and jailed for trying to go fight in syria. new details this morning about the two attackers who burst into this 16th century normandy church holding six people hostage before brutally slaying the 86-year-old priest. the authorities now say one of the men was adel kermiche, just 19 years old, arrested twice for trying to go to syria. at the time of the attack he was under house arrest with a tracking bracelet only allowed out a few hours a day. the second attacker has not yet been identified. this nun managed to escape and alerted authorities saying the killers forced father jacques

[ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: we die for going to see fireworks and going to a concert, now we die for going to mass, this girl told us, near the church. it will never end. it will never end, that is certainly the feeling by many here in france and across europe after four attacks in just two weeks, france's president has warned that this will be a long war but vowed it's one they will win. george. >> that state of emergency not going away. alex, thank you. we're going to move on now to a dramatic rescue caught on body camera. you see a florida police officer running right into a gun battle to save a woman who had been shot then helping her kids to safety. abc's linzie janis has the

grocery store and a state appeals court ruling that it is not against the law. our own sunny hostin, senior legal correspondent joins us live, and, sunny, very simple question. how can this be legal? >> isn't that something? i mean, this behavior is reprehensible. it's nasty. it's just downright creepy but because of a loophole in georgia law, it is legal in georgia. get this, michael, the law in georgia prohibits recording activities without consent in a private place and out of public view. so the court here ruled that because it happened in a grocery store, it didn't happen in a private place. so in georgia under my skirt, is not private. >> no. so, are they going to do anything to change it? is the legislature working on this? >> no question about it. it typically takes, lara, a high-profile case like this to make the law change and so my guess is the georgia legislature is going to change this with the quickness and many other states have begun to change it.
7:41 am
right here where i'm sitting in new york, it is a felony to film under my skirt. so i think we're going to see real change in georgia very, very quickly. >> all right, so, good, so our legal system is doing something to keep up with technology, sunny? >> it's trying. i mean, the wheels of justice sometimes turn a little slowly and it's very difficult to catch up with the fast pace of technology, but we are getting there. we've gotten there in washington. we're gotten there in hawaii. we've gotten there in florida. like i said right here in new york, it's a felony to do this kind of behavior, so certainly georgia is going to catch up and a lot of other states will catch up too. >> all right. >> those wheels need to turn a little faster in this country. >> big wheels keep on turning. all right. >> that's a little crazy. >> sunny, thank you very much. we want to turn now to the amazon hack attack. this texas woman reporting to amazon a hacker broke into her account, draining it of $1,700. she then changed her password and the hacker broke in again. how does this happen? we're asking robert herjavec, star of "shark tank" and author of "you don't have to be a shark."
7:42 am
he's joining us right now and, robert, i know you head a cybersecurity firm and this hacker actually sent the woman threatening notes to stop canceling her fraudulent orders. here's what she said. we're going to play a sound bite. >> canceling my orders. he was using everything, this is my account now. your account has been hacked. these are my purchases. this is my 1.6k balance. and amazon will take care of you, just let it be. >> wow. >> and amazon did refund her money but, robert, how vulnerable are we to hackers? >> well, lara, today being online is like modern dating. you need protection. spyware, key loggers, malware. everybody is at risk. look at the democrats. they got nailed. the average consumer is at an all-time risk. >> and i'm surprised that the arrogance of the hacker. robert, we reached out to amazon
7:43 am
for comment. they said if a customer experiences any issue with their account, our team will work directly with the customer to resolve the matter. but how can you protect yourself and your amazon account or any other accounts that you have out there without depending on that company? >> well, amazon is great and a lot of companies will help you but you got to help yourself. i always say number one, use two factor authentication. a good password and p.i.n., change your password often and clear your cache. you can actually go into your browser and clear all the stuff that's on there from before. everybody should do that. >> all right, everybody needs protection. >> good advice. >> thanks, robert. >> i need another password. all right, thanks, robert. now to the u.s. men's basketball team playing an exhibition game against china. they're gearing up for the rio olympics but nba superstars lebron james and steph curry, they will not be a part of the u.s. olympic team but three-time nba champion and espn analyst bruce bowen joins us with more. bruce, good question.
7:44 am
without steph, without lebron, without chris paul, without james harden, can this team still win the gold? do they have enough talent? >> absolutely, they have enough talent. come on, michael. this team played china twice and held them to 57 points. so one game they win by 49. next game they win by 50. come on, you got to give them credit. this is a young team, but it's a team that still has stars of the game today. you have carmelo anthony going for a third gold medal. you have kevin durant who is an mvp and a leading scorer in the nba. then you have champions in draymond green and klay thompson, as well as kyrie irving, who understands the value of playing that high level basketball at the highest level in the nba. >> i am with you, bruce. >> going yes. >> i just really like kyrie. all right, so, remember '92, michael jordan, magic johnson, larry bird. how does this team stack up? >> it does not stack up to that team. those are greats. those are guys that are part of the 50 greatest players in the
7:45 am
nba. now, we're going to have other greats in the nba. but we're going to say, this group, some of those players will be on the next 50, so you can't compare these two teams, because when you do that, it's a disservice to the current team. we must support our current team. we must do the dance. we must believe. i believe, i believe. i believe that we will win. i believe that we will win. >> bruce, i tell you, when you talk, it's like listening to muhammad ali sometimes, you get fired up ready to fight. we're curious -- sunny and robert, what do you think? u.s. with the gold medal in basketball, the olympics? >> oh, no question about it. usa is going to get the gold. >> hang on, hang on. team usa looks great. >> who said hang on? >> why are we not talking about team croatia? why are we not talking about team croatia? one of the best basketball teams -- >> you ruined the whole moment. >> because we don't live in croatia. we live in the great u.s. of a. >> what?
7:46 am
>> bruce, i'm with you. >> bring on the champ, bruce. >> maybe croatia in second place but team usa. >> we're bringing home the gold. that's what we're going to do, support, support, support. >> all right, we want to say thank you to all of our panelists -- bruce, robert and sunny. and coming up in two minutes our t.j. holmes giving us access inside the convention halls all week long, now he's going outside and he's taking on a famous philadelphia challenge live. you don't want to miss it. that outfit -- >> he looks so tired. >> -- is a clue. >> he looks so tired. . rt it from the beginning.

our intrepid producer, he's biking between conventions, meeting voters, having conversations, and we're going to talk to him about all that live coming up, but first we've got a health alert about some vitamin supplements. "consumer reports" is out with a new warning this morning about certain dietary aids. they looked at a wide variety of brands and found some can pose possible health risks. millions of health-conscious americans take daily supplements hoping to reap health benefits from weight loss and energy boosts, to lower cholesterol and memory enhancement, but, according to a new analysis by "consumer reports," some supplements may be doing more harm than good to your body. >> supplements are not regulated by the fda as a drug. they're regulated as a food, and as a result, they have far less stringent regulations applied to them. they do not have to be proven to be safe and they don't have to be proven to be effective to end up on store shelves. >> reporter: according to "consumer reports," some supplements may give consumers more than they bargained for.
8:16 am
some found with contaminating heavy metals. other found to contain prescription and even experimental or illegal drugs which could lead to serious problems such as organ damage, cancer or cardiac arrest. >> what we really want is for there to be laws enacted that ensure that the safety of supplements have been proven before they end up on store shelves. >> reporter: some supplements could cause harmful side effects and make some prescription medications less effective. >> supplements have labels that don't necessarily tell you what they're good for, how they're going to work, whether they will work. and you can't trust that they're going to work or that they're going to be safe by looking at the label. >> all right, joining us now, our senior medical contributor dr. jen ashton who recently got her masters in nutrition, so congratulations on that. >> thank you, sir. >> welcome to the show as usual. >> thank you. >> but, "consumer reports" found that more than half of american adults believe that these companies actually test their products to make sure that they're safe.
8:17 am
but what is your take on the benefits and risks of supplements? >> you know, it's a complex issue, and it's not a yes or no question or answer. you know, on the one hand, i used to tell patients that, if they're healthy and eat well and don't have a chronic illness, that supplements are unnecessary. but the reality is, and i see this every day in my practice, a lot of people don't eat well or can't get these nutrients from food, and they do have chronic conditions or are on medications that make it difficult, so it doesn't mean all good or all bad, it just means how to do it safely because this is an industry that has much looser regulations than prescription medication. >> but are there any supplements out there that are particularly bad and that you should avoid? >> 100%. so, first of all, you should avoid anything that promises or claims to be the fountain of youth or anything that says it's going to prevent or treat or cure a condition. then there are these big categories, and they include -- you mentioned some of them in the piece, michael -- weight loss, muscle building, sexual enhancement, depression or mood disorders. these are kind of the red flags.
8:18 am
and we have to remember and we have to remember in supplements, more does not mean better and natural dogs not mean safer. >> and, you know, but the vitamins, supplement sales are up so a lot are buying into this. what supplements do you think may be medically warranted in some people? >> for some people, not a whole list but pregnant women, we know they can benefit from supplements. people who are on certain medications, especially like proton pump inhibitors that have had weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery or those who have documented or diagnosed medical conditions or deficiencies, b12 and d very commonly prescribed and recommended to elderly people and look for that usp seal. that's an indication that it has been tested and is relatively safe. >> make sure you look for that seal. you're not done and you'll keep helping us because dr. ashton will tweet out a full list of suggested supplements and she's going to answer your questions on twitter but until then up next it's workout wednesday. our fitness expert is sharing her best moves out there in times square.

8:31 am
this year's conventions are go big or go home. >> we're going to win, we're going to win so big, thank you very much, everybody. >> i may become the first woman president. >> reporter: but one brave soul is giving new meaning to political spin. >> i'm michael and this is the election cycle. >> reporter: our very own digital correspondent michael koenigs. >> you're a cyclist? >> i am. the election cyclist. >> reporter: biking from the republican convention in cleveland. >> i want to talk to americans who weren't in this room. >> reporter: to the democratic convention in philly. michael traveling 500 miles in 5 days. >> who are you guys voting for? >> trump. >> hillary clinton. >> bernie sanders. >> no, you're not. >> even hitching a ride with these nuns on a convention bound bus. >> the least we could do was to give you a lift just a little bit to rest up. >> catholic charity. >> reporter: and overnight -- ♪ i'm going to fly now >> reporter: -- the election cyclist finally coasting into philly ready to enter the dnc ring.
8:32 am
coasting into philly and coasting here into convention hall. >> there he is. >> you made it. you made it. >> long ride. >> oh, yeah. you didn't hear that -- nice to see you, michael. airfares are down. gasoline at an all-time low. you decided to ride a bike from cleveland here. what was the reason behind this? why did you want to do this? >> very cheap. great way to get here but mainly i wanted to talk to the folks along the way in between these two arenas, the people who can't be here because ultimately they decide this election and they're just incredibly passionate about what goes on and so i wanted to hear them along the way. >> so was it as much fun as you hoped it would be and what did you learn? >> it was much more fun. i learned -- one day we stopped in pittsburgh for a pirates game and met voters from the highest seats to the lowest and just hearing their thoughts and their passion for this election cycle, it is at a high level. >> yeah, everybody is paying attention. >> really.
8:33 am
how was that wrestling match? you show up dressed like that and what happens? >> i think they saw me in this tight outfit and said step into the ring and, yeah. these folks, local community of semipro wrestlers had me jump on board and the mayor, an 82-year-old woman also there at the fights. >> you're smiling right now. any trouble along the way? >> well, there are a lot of potholes out there so we got to take care of some of those infrastructure questions. i think that the heat wave was a big factor going through that. >> yeah. >> my mom cast walling me. >> stay hydrated. >> so i think those were the main concerns. pokemon go players also popping up on the trail at random spots. >> that's crazy. >> you had to keep from hitting them. >> exactly. >> talking to the average voter along the way, what did you hear from them, michael? >> i think that a lot of people are a little concerned about the two choices they have. there is a real rock and a hard
8:34 am
place sensibility and a lot of that country from the farmlands to the city streets, and so they know it's a tough choice and they're paying attention to these conventions. >> that was a great idea. we're glad you did it. thanks for coming in. >> thank you, guys. nice finish. >> get some rest. get some rest. >> two more days to go here from philly. we'll be here. "world news" is here as well and "nightline." tonight, barack obama and vp biden and vice presidential candidate tim kaine. we'll have it all. >> full day. full day and gavel-to-gavel coverage on our livestream channel and don't worry. he takes naps. he does take naps. george does get a little sleep here and there, just a nap here and there. >> i'm on one right now. >> let's go back to ginger in new york. >> you know what he does, he meditates and works out. i know george's secret. that's what i got to get into. i'm already working out. you are too with our liveteam and i wanted to say a very good morning to everybody in times square. and guess what, i'm really excited because i get to share my new project.
8:35 am
i've been working on it a long time. it's an abc news original digital series called "food forecast." we're exploring how weather and climate impact the food that you eat. here's the first one, maine lobster and looked into how lobster has changed. in southern new england, you'll see the video here. i'm actually eating a scallop because in southern new england the number of lobsters have been down by 70% in the last 20 years. so this guy, mike marchetti, had to shift from lobstering to scalloping. we'll follow his story, a maine lobsterman and so many other scientists looking into the changes in our ocean and environment, all part of the premiere episode you can watch, "food forecast," on abcnews.com or on your smartphone, tablet or streaming devices. stay tuned because the next one will be maple syrup. you're doing all right, right? so nice in new york city. we wanted to go ahead and take you into the forecast because, oh, i am sweating and working this morning. the heat advisories, though, if i was sweating and working out in south carolina or virginia, it would be worse. humidity much higher. 108 is the heat index for wilmington, 99 in raleigh.
8:36 am
look from west to east. hot out west too. that's the big picture and decatur, indiana, is here this morning. >> 91. >> good morning. i am mike nicco. check out day planner today. starting off warmer this morning, mid-60s on way to upper 60s at the coast and 80s an bay and 100s inland, and it will remain hot through this weather report brought to you by fruit of the loom and now another special announcement. we day is back to abc. the movement is all about sparking action around the globe, shifting the focus from me to we. we know we need that to help others, of course, so many of your favorite stars joining in, charlize theron, selena gomez. demi lovato, the muppets. you can watch and get insired august 28th at 7:00 p.m., 6:00 central right here on abc. can't wait to see all of them together, lara. >> all right, it's "gma on the lookout." using power washes to clean things outside your house, there could be a hidden danger.
8:37 am
mara schiavocampo has more on this. good morning, mara. >> reporter: lara, good morning. power washers like these are very popular in the summer. used on everything from concrete to even your barbecue grill but experts warn that they are much more powerful than your typical garden hose, and they could lead to serious injury. pressure washers can blast through many summer cleaning projects, but with all that power can come danger. >> it took almost the whole top part of my knuckle off. >> reporter: ben skydell makes a living working with outdoor tools. >> pressure washers can cause a lot of damage. >> reporter: so much damage, 6,000 people went to the emergency room in 2014 with pressure washer-related injuries. a portion of those attributed to powerful spray. most consumer pressure washers come with different nozzles for increased water pressure depending on the job. this nozzle is 40 degrees. this is 25. and this red one is the most
8:38 am
powerful at 0 degrees. the red nozzle so potentially dangerous, "consumer reports" issuing a safety alert. >> we don't think power washer manufacturers should even be including a zero degree nozzle and we are asking that the industry actually take them out. >> reporter: "consumer reports" showing "gma on the lookout" how in a matter of seconds these red nozzles can cut through a carrot. if that's your hand, what kind of injury is that going to cause? >> this will definitely slice through your skin. >> reporter: and even if you're wearing shoes. so if your feet were in there, it wouldn't be good. >> would not be good. >> reporter: manufacturers warn consumers when you buy a new pressure washer, but what happens when you rent one? we went undercover to three tool rental stores in new jersey to see if they come with that red nozzle and if we're warned about the potential danger. all three stores gave us a quick demo. they all came with the ability to spray zero degrees, and only
8:39 am
one warned us about the potential danger. >> don't use the red one. the red one is too strong. >> reporter: two of the washers did have warnings saying they could cause severe injury. we reached out to all three businesses and they told us their paperwork warns customers of potential dangers. the cleaning equipment trade association tells us the wand lengths make it difficult to direct the discharge stream at yourself, and the warning instructions state to wear eye protection, hold spray gun with both hands and do not direct discharge stream at people along with other warnings. all right, so you see, i have my very stylish safety goggles on. it's also really important to wear sturdy shoes and we're going to show you exactly why. john is here from underwriters laboratories. he is going to show us what this can do to a flip-flop. how it's going to slice right through it. and, again, if you're wearing open-toe shoes like that, definitely not a good thing. "consumer reports" is actually asking manufacturers to remove those red nozzles altogether and they point out that you can
8:40 am
still get the same cleaning job done without them. it'll just you take a little more time but it will be much safer, lara. >> wow, that visual tells a story. thank you very much. coming up here, we have michael's powerful exclusive interview with former nfl star steve gleason. you do not want to miss it.
8:41 am
8:42 am
8:43 am
tomorrow, are you ready for a delicious edition of deas? well, these summer snacks perfect for the whole family will make you say -- >> that is it fantastic. >> tomorrow, not just deals. >> really great deals. >> on abc's "good morning america." ♪ i'm not trying to -- all right, back now with my exclusive interview with football hero steve gleason and a personal hero of mine, his wife, michel, turning heartbreak into inspiration. steve was diagnosed with als in 2011, just weeks before his wife learned she was pregnant. what they decided to do next will blow you away. september 2006, the new orleans saints back in the superdome for the first time since hurricane katrina ravaged their city. early in the game, defensive back steve gleason blocks a punt
8:44 am
for his team, reigniting the fire within so many who lost so much. >> look out. breakthrough. caught by steve gleason. >> reporter: gleason, a hero then and a hero now but for a different reason. >> i've been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which is a disease in the motor neurons, and this disease is almost always fatal. >> reporter: within a few years, the once forceful football player loses his ability to move, to talk and eventually to breathe. today he relies on a computer to speak and a ventilator to stay alive. one second you walk out onto the field, and you're seen as a hero. and then you can't control your simple body functions. so how do you deal with that dichotomy? >> here's my thinking, my life ain't easy, but it's awesome.
8:45 am
i had some soaring and incredible moments on the football field, but i've had even more uplifting moments off the field since diagnosis. >> reporter: six weeks after the diagnosis, his wife michel finds out she's pregnant. the young couple's new mission, to record hundreds of videos for their unborn son named rivers while steve still has the chance. >> hey, how are you? how are you now? >> when we learned about rivers, it made sense to me to share with rivers as much of myself as possible. >> boo. >> reporter: 1,300 hours of video becoming a documentary called "gleason." why did you decide to share this, these moments? i mean, you're so open, but you're sharing this to the world in this movie. what made you decide to do that? >> we could have made a movie that glosses over the hard parts and just showed the hero part and the easy parts. we wanted to show the truth if we're going to do this, we're
8:46 am
going to go all out and show the truth of our lives. >> how is it raising a son when you have als? >> i'm relentlessly pursuing ways to be a better dad. i pick up rivers every day from school. i'm at all of his practices. i get to help get him ready for bed at night. i love being rivers' daddy. >> daddy. >> reporter: throughout this film, there is some moments of incredible humor. how do you keep that going? >> you got to do something, and we're both funny. we're both funny people, i think, so laughing has been one of the best solutions to get through this because otherwise like what else are you going to do, you know. i think he got funnier after diagnosis. >> go, go. >> humor in the face of adversity is an excellent weapon. i'd like to say i'm a naturally funny dude, but in reality i think i just have no choice. humor is definitely healing. so i think we've tried to use it that way.
8:47 am
>> i mean, it was amazing to sit there with steve and his wife michel and, you know, one thing about all the people with als including steve is although he's lost his ability to move, to talk and all those things, his brain works perfectly. >> and he's got a great sense of humor. >> he's got a great sense of humor. he's smart as a whip. the first thing he did was give me a hard time when i walked in the room because i pronounced when i was commentating on fox he remembered something i did in 2011 where -- or 2011, yeah, '11, i messed up the name of scott fujita and called him scott fajita and he called me on it and teased me on it. we had to give him his questions in advance since it takes him longer to respond through his computer and, as you see, inspirational and his wife michel is amazing, as well. this documentary is a movie, "gleason" and opens in select theaters friday. you can see more of my interview with steve and michel gleason on "nightline" on friday, as well. >> unbelievable. >> thank you for sharing. coming up next, pentatonix.
