all-around gymnast, and simone manuel becoming the first african-american woman to win in swimming. emotional moments for both of them. >> michael phelps, a full body ahead of the competition, winning his 22nd gold medal breaking a record more than 2,000 years old. >> he's counting them. >> four this time. for most individual olympic titles and he won by almost three seconds. there was time to go to the bathroom before the next one came in. ryan lochte, as well, we'll celebrate him and amy in rio with the olympics. >> oh, guys, it was truly an historic night. gymnast simone biles cementing her place in history and michael phelps beating his ultimate rival and then, yes, newcomer simone manuel writing her name in the history books, as well. what a night for the red, white and blue. team usa crushing the competition. >> a major solid. >> reporter: simone biles, the 4'8" giant capturing her first all-around gold with a stunning performance.
>> this has been her destiny all along. >> reporter: the bubbly 19-year-old known for her megawatt smile in tears. after her final routine. >> i don't think i've ever seen simone biles cry. >> reporter: meanwhile, teammate aly raisman capturing silver with a near flawless floor exercise. >> a return to the olympics has been worth it. >> reporter: unable to control her emotion. the two american medalists hugging with happiness but the night belonging to biles, this pint-sized princess is now the undisputed queen. >> lochte is taking over the lead but they're separated by 0.01 seconds. >> reporter: and then the final duel in the pool between michael phelps and ryan lochte, these rio roommates going head-to-head in the much-antiticipated 200-meter invidual medley but lochte proving to be no match. >> this isn't even close! michael phelps is swimming away
from everybody. he's got a full body length lead. >> reporter: phelps blowing the competition out of the water. >> michael phelps has done it again! >> reporter: the five-time olympian winning a jaw-dropping 22nd gold medal become the first swimmer ever to win the same event at four straight olympics. meanwhile, american ryan murphy striking gold in the 200-meter backstroke and in a photo finish -- >> manuel is going to do it! >> reporter: the other spectacular simone, simone manuel tying a canadian for gold in the 100-meter freestyle overcome with emotion making her the first african female swimmer to win a medal in any individual event, from the pool to the podium, tears of triumph on this unforgettable night. and i was lucky enough to be there in the arena watching simone and aly and, of course, their performances were spectacular but i loved watching their friendship. before, during and after, they were in each other's arms
hugging each other, cheering each other on, it was truly beautiful to witness. and aly raisman even joking after she won gold that she plans to crash simone biles' vacation saying i'm going to belize with her. i haven't been invited but i'm just going to go. i'm pretty sure that's going to be okay. robin. >> i think so, amy. i appreciate your e-mails. you e-mailing furiously about what was going on with them hugging. we appreciate that blow-by-blow but joining us for more is dominique dawes. enjoyed your tweets as well. eating pizza. >> everyone knows that simone biles always ends her competitions having a slice of pepperoni pizza so i actually shot that at least three hours before taking a bite of the pizza. because i was that confident. >> you knew. >> we knew. everyone, everyone knew. i mean she's that dominant and
already just with the start value alone was nearly a point ahead of everyone else on the floor. >> what sets her apart from everyone else? >> the new scoring system. she's now allowed to do the more difficult maneuvers and get credit for it which was different. we were capped at a 10.0. if you did more difficult moves you wouldn't get credit for it so why take the risk. >> and another great one in the pool, michael phelps. i mean, he is just a set apart of everybody else in the pool. >> he really is. i think he has an extra first or second or fourth gear that he turns on at an olympics games. people, they think he can win but yet lochte had been winning world championship after world championship, four in a row, and then you think, oh, lochte is going to be right up there with michael phelps and michael phelps just zooms by him and takes it over. >> i know, and he still seems like he could go for another olympics. i remember in 2000 at the first one and here he is still again a father and everything. >> i was at those olympic games in 2000 with him when he was that breakout athlete and then he's still going strong and his fifth olympic games is pretty impressive. >> how about this breakout athlete, simone manuel. i mean to win -- the first african-american woman to win a medal in the pool like that and just to see her emotion.
>> truly, she brought me to tears and i was weeping. she had some amazing tears of joy with her teammates from stanford that she was celebrating with and just knowing the message that young african-american young girls are going to take from this that they, too, can become olympic champion swimmers, you know, us women don't always want to get in the water because of our hair or just other things in our culture and she's kind of broken down that barrier and i love it. >> you know all these champions we're talking about this morning, you know the feeling that they have waking up today. >> it's exciting. i think the first feeling they have is they recognize it does take a village with this whole look that's going on right now that their coaches, their parents, their fans, teammates. simone and aly, how tight they are on the floor, even tighter behind closed doors. and i truly think the time that they spend at the ranch with the karolyis, martha karolyi has helped them become better friends. and i love to see it. >> maybe they will go on vacation together.
>> i'm sure they will. >> all right, dominique, thank you. all right, jesse, how about that medal count. >> you remember yesterday the americans had a one gold medal lead over china and now they've extended that to five and, of course, the americans still lead the overall count with 38, china in second place, japan and russia round out three and four, yesterday australia was in fifth and now that belongs to great britain. katie ledecky is competing in the 800-meter freestyle final tonight, plus track and field gets under way tonight. so many more medals on the horizon for the americans, david. >> i love that lead. jesse, thanks so much. in the meantime, we're going to turn to the other news breaking this morning, to that midair scare overnight. a jetblue flight from boston to sacramento forced to make an emergency landing in south dakota after hitting severe turbulence. at least two dozen people taken to the hospital and abc's kayna whitworth is in los angeles with the latest for us this morning. kayna, good morning. >> reporter: david, good morning. this turbulence was so sudden
and so violent it sent people flying from their seats if they weren't buckled in, some of them hitting their heads on the overhead bins, cracking the bins. they had to make an emergency landing to get people to the hospital. overnight, terrifying moments for passengers and crew on board a jetblue flight en route from boston to sacramento. rocked by severe turbulence after running into bad weather. >> it was almost like a bang, like we hit a wall and just dropped straight down. and there was stuff in the aisles. you had people crying. >> reporter: the cross country flight making an emergency landing in south dakota. 22 passengers and 2 crew members rushed to the hospital. >> within seconds we dropped probably about a hundred feet. people flew out of their seats that weren't strapped in. >> reporter: a flight attendant taken off the plane in a neck brace. this picture posted on social media showing the damaged bathrooms. >> one of the pilots came out of the cockpit and said we have some injuries so we're going to
need to find an airport and do an emergency landing. >> we were strapped in so we were lucky. people who got hurt were moving about the cabinet. >> reporter: turbulence very >> i thought we were going down. i really did. >> reporter: this morning, they sent in a care team to help those injured and an alter mate act to get people to sacramento. robin. >> scary moments there, kayna, thank you. now to the race for the white house. donald trump doubling down and stepping up his attack on hillary clinton after calling her and president obama founders of isis. abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest on all that and clinton's response. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the fact checkers are having a field day with this one. president obama did not found isis but after a full day of refusing to back down from these
comments insisting he meant exactly what he said this morning donald trump now says he was just being sarcastic. this morning, donald trump has a new line of attack. >> i call president obama and hillary clinton the founders of isis. they're the founders. >> reporter: and he lobbed the inflammatory accusation not once -- >> these are the founders of isis because of bad judgment. >> reporter: not twice. >> he is the founder in a true sense. >> reporter: but nearly 20 times in one day. clinton firing back on twitter saying, no, barack obama is not the founder of isis. anyone willing to sink so low, so often should never be allowed to serve as our commander-in-chief. a spokesman adding, this is a false claim from a presidential candidate with an aversion to the truth and an unprecedented lack of knowledge. and from the white house, a one-word response. seriously? trump's running mate mike pence trying to explain.
>> the media is talking today about another controversy over semantics. >> reporter: but the nominee himself not backing down when challenged by conservative radio host hugh hewitt. >> you meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace. >> no, i meant he's the founder of isis. i do. >> but he's not sympathetic to them. he hates them. >> i don't care. he's the founder. the way he got out of iraq, that was the founding of isis. >> reporter: just a few minutes ago trump took to twitter. take a look. he says ratings challenged cnn reports so seriously that i call president obama and clinton the founder of isis and mvp. they don't get sarcasm? that's a new line after he refused to walk back those comments, even when given that opportunity to do so, david. >> all right, a new line and new fallout this morning. let's get right to martha raddatz who has covered isis extensively and, of course, the race for president as well. martha, great to have you, and first, you heard a conservative radio host asking donald trump if this is what he really meant. you heard hugh give donald trump
an out and instead donald trump said no, he meant he was the founder of isis. he doubled down and now a short time ago saying this was sarcasm. >> david, as you know this is a familiar cycle with him. he says something provocative, remember what he said about the second amendment people, then criticize him, and then says the media misinterpreting him but he had doubled down on this statement that president obama and hillary clinton were founders of isis and that distracts from an issue where critics say hillary clinton is vulnerable. isis did gain strength during her time as secretary of state. so, if he stayed on message, david, instead of what he calls sarcasm, he could probably make some strong points. >> and martha, as you know in the last 24 hours he told some supporters i'm having a problem with utah, saying ohio is close, as well. we need help and in an interview he signaled what he might do if he loses, i wanted to play this and get your reaction on the back side. >> well, just keep doing the same thing i'm doing now and in
the end it's either going to work or i'm going to have a very, very nice long vacation. >> you know, martha, it's very rare we hear from a candidate about plans if they lose, and they usually don't go there. >> you're so right. this was certainly not the confident winner that donald trump usually presents himself as. he was practically pleading for votes but he sees the polls and the polls are in a slide right now for him, especially in a couple of those key battleground states. will this be a new theme for trump, i could lose? i doubt it, david. >> all right, martha raddatz, always great to have you. >> all right, david. we're going to move on now to another big headline this morning. an amusement park accident in pennsylvania. a 3-year-old falling off this roller coaster rushed to the hospital. it's at least the third incident on park rides in less than a week. abc's linzie janis has more. >> they're requesting a helicopter. >> reporter: a day at the amusement park turned into a nightmare. >> unknown age child who fell from a roller coaster. >> reporter: a 3-year-old boy
rushed to the hospital with unknown injuries after falling from this wooden roller coaster at idlewild & soak zone in pennsylvania. >> he was talking. he was alert but he was airlifted to a local hospital. >> reporter: the park, known for its rides and water slides, now keeping the rollo coaster at a standstill as investigators work to determine what went wrong. >> our rides are inspected daily. >> reporter: this, the third serious incident involving amusement park rides in less than a week. >> there's risk in every amusement park ride. the majority of the incidents that occur on amusement rides today are human error. >> reporter: on monday, three girls were injured at a tennessee carnival after their ferris wheel basket flipped sideways sending them plummeting nearly 40 feet to the ground. and 10-year-old caleb schwab killed on a water slide sunday in kansas city. investigators still trying to determine how he fell out of his restraints.
and this morning, no word on how that little boy in pennsylvania is doing. the ride that he was on had one height requirement for children riding on their own and another if they were with a parent. david. >> all right, linzie, thanks so much. in the meantime, we're going to turn to that incredible survival story. three college students lost while exploring a cave in arkansas. trapped underground for nearly 30 hours. this morning, they are now safe and sound and telling their story. here's abc's gio benitez. >> reporter: a race against the clock to find three arkansas state university students who disappeared into this cramped, dark cave near cushman, arkansas. >> he is casey. >> reporter: casey sherwood, a soon-to-be senior and cub scout leader, was leading two incoming freshmen on an expedition of the blowing cave where it can reach a depth of 40 feet when he suddenly realized his group was lost. >> initially we were panicked about like not being able to make it out but after that like we got into survival mode.
i guess you would say, and we got ourselves hunkered down and we decided to wait it out. >> reporter: nearly 30 hours went by as the trio huddled together to stay warm sitting in a triangle formation breathing into their shirts to generate hot air. sherwood's wife alerted authorities to the group's disappearance. emergency personnel responding to the scene around 1:45 a.m. firefighters and cave experts from a local college entering the cave of which only a mile and a half is officially mapped. the three students began yelling and whistling hoping to alert any rescuers to their whereabouts about 30 minutes from the cave's entrance. >> we had a routine about every five or ten minutes or so, we would either have a really high pitched whistle or very loud help going out and it was during one of those routine moments that finally one of the rescue teams heard us. >> reporter: this morning, their
families are grateful they never gave up hope. >> they say that once you're in a cave for over 24 hours, at that time it's no longer a search and rescue, it's just a recovery mission, so, plenty of people were rather surprised to see us walking out of that cave. >> surprised indeed, and we're told the three young men had mild hypothermia and will be okay. in fact, i want to show you a photo right now. take a look at this photo right now. those are the two japanese foreign exchange students right after they were rescued giving that peace sign. i'd say they have the right mind-set. right? >> they look better than we would look if we spent that much time in the cave. >> they look better than we did after being at barbra streisand last night. >> that's right. her encore just ended. we're lucky we even got in this morning. >> it was worth it. how about this flooding we got going on. >> take you to your hometown. we had 6, 7, 8 inches southwest mississippi, southeast louisiana. that will continue today and also flood watches across parts of missouri and in through chicago, even northern new
england, upstate new york, and heat and humidity for the northeast. >> hello, i am meteorologist mike nicco with the forecast. ourly lies show heat increasing, and air quality is declining, the 15th summer "spare the air" day, cool tomorrow, and you will be hotter next week. 60s along the coast in san francisco, and 70s around the bay and 80s in the north bay and south bay and low-to-upper 90s inland and good sleeping wet tonight, 50 to nearly 60 degrees. my seven-day outlook shows pushing triple digits next

rising british tennis star gabriella taylor was deliberately poisoned during last month's wimbledon. >> i haven't been well these last two days. >> reporter: the 18-year-old junior player suddenly bowed out of her quarterfinal match on july 7th after suffering from a mystery illness. >> miss taylor is forced to retire. >> reporter: taylor, ranked 381 in the world, spent four days in intensive care and diagnosed her with a rare strain of leptospirosis, a disease often contracted by water infected with bacteria transmitted through animals, particularly rats. >> i felt ten times worse and really on the verge of passing out. i was really -- it was really hard for me to believe that this is what was happening. >> reporter: symptoms can take up to 14 days to show and are often flu-like. left untreated the disease can lead to organ failure and internal bleeding. cases in the uk are rare, only 71 confirmed cases last year. now, taylor's parents say they believe their daughter was targeted.
>> after the hospital, we went straight to the police. >> reporter: scotland yard is now launching a criminal investigation into the allegation of poisoning with the intent to endanger life. determining if the tennis player could have been poisoned by a rival or an organized crime sports betting syndicate. >> she's on the doorstep of fulfilling this great dream. multimillion dollars waiting potentially for her someday and then to have this happen? it's really crushing. >> reporter: now on the mend, taylor finally returned to the court on wednesday, tweeting this photo writing, so happy to be back on the court. taking it step by step. taylor's mother also told reporters that her daughter's bags with her drinks were often left unattended in the players' lounge and that someone could have very easily taken the opportunity to contaminate her drinks. several scientists have expressed doubt she was poisoned deliberately. so far no arrests. >> joining us now is espn's patrick mcenroe. knows a little thing or two
about playing tennis here. so, when talking about junior tennis, it's still high stakes. there's still a lot if you knock somebody out of the competition? >> first of all, let's hope this is not true. we hope for the best for this young player but you're right, robin, for junior players, particularly at wimbledon and particularly for someone who's a local -- she's an english player, she's their top junior player this is a big, big moment for her to be in the quarterfinals of the juniors. if she were to go on as many thought she could and actually win junior wimbledon, it's worth significant endorsement dollars, worth a lot more attention and support from the lta, the lawn and tennis association, so it is a big deal for her to lose this opportunity and obviously to lose it in the way that she did was just terrible. >> as you said, we're glad she's doing as well as she is. this is tennis. you know, people don't think of it being a cutthroat sport. >> well, tennis has had a lot of issues this year that we rather would not have had and starting at the australian open with reports of match fixing and gambling. we know that tennis is one of
the highest betted-on sports in the entire world so tennis has got an issue there they're trying to address. now, we had the doping issues come up midway through this year, as well, and so now you have something like this so, as i said at the beginning, let's hope that this was just some, you know, bacteria that she got. we know it's very rare in england for this to happen, let's hope she got it somehow by chance and let's hope obviously that she gets healthy and can get back on the courts. >> but authorities haven't ruled out anything right now. >> they have not. so, you know, thank goodness they're looking into this and getting out in front of it because this -- you see her in hospital with things in her arms, four days, i mean, that's -- someone who's in the prime shape of her life, a young girl on her way up. >> great to have you. you graduated from the big board. >> i'm telling you, this is the big time. i made it. >> good to see patrick in the flesh. >> unfortunately on a story like this. let's get a more positive one next time. >> patrick, thank you. we're going to move on now
to those separate cases of apparent road rage this morning being investigated by police really on opposite sides of the country right now. a woman waving a firearm right there in that video and in another, the suspect actually firing shots at a car with a child inside. abc's clayton sandell has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, police in gainesville are looking for this woman seen wildly waving a gun after an alleged road rage incident moments before. police say this black truck and silver sedan pulled into a gas station after a run-in on the street. the woman gets out of the truck with the pistol. the truck's driver jacob sylvester quickly takes it away and he's later arrested. but investigators say he refuses to identify the woman with the gun. and on the streets north of los angeles, investigators say they're now working to stop the driver of a dark honda before he does this again. in another apparent case of road rage he fires twice at the family inside this white suv including a child.
>> the driver shot at her, armed with unknown type of black handgun. >> reporter: the suspect enraged, police say, because the suv apparently sprayed his water with windshield wiper fluid. >> the level this incident took was quite alarming to us and i couldn't imagine what it would be like in a vehicle on being fired upon just driving with your family members. it had to have been terrifying. >> reporter: road rage incidents can quickly take a violent deadly turn. since 2010 road rage has been blamed for at least 1,700 deaths nationwide. police in the latest cases are asking for the public's help to get the suspects off the street and into jail. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> all right, let's hope they catch them soon. clayton, our thanks to you. let's get right over to robin and the big board. >> you're going to join me on the big board. >> can't wait. >> yes, and coming up on our big board, new trouble. macy's closing 100 locations. is this the end of department stores. and a health warning about your kids. the new guidelines. plus, paul mccartney gets candid. what he's saying about one of

it is time now for the big board. our team of insiders and t.j. >> oh, no. >> i just had to do that. you're going to tell us about your story in just a moment. you got a good sport about that. but first, let's start with this huge announcement from macy's closing 100 stores next year due to slumping sales as more are going online and lower cost retailers. abc's chief business and economic reporter rebecca jarvis is going to join us now. so, this is really raising some eyebrows. is it because so many people are just, you know, shopping from home? >> it is, robin. the retailers are scrambling right now. they are dealing with two things, it's a double whammy, the amazon effect. people are shopping from home. they're shopping online. they're price comparison
shopping, they're getting their deliveries within two days and shipping is now free in most cases. plus, we're spending our money differently these days. more and more people are spending on home improvements and they're spending less on material things and more on experiences which is why not just macy's closing 100 stores but you're seeing it across the board, kmart is closing 68 stores. walmart is closing 269 stores and the sports authority is closing 460 stores, so we're really seeing a change at the department store level. >> sort of an evolution in how we're shopping but, rebecca, you were telling us it has to do with handbags. how could it just be one item? >> this is pretty interesting, david. so, handbags used to be more of a status symbol. in fact, analysts have even looked at this and crunched the numbers. they used to be the thing that retailers could really stand by because it didn't matter whether it was raining or cold or summer outside, people would still go and buy handbags and we're seeing less and less shopping on handbags that has hit a lot of retailers like macy's and
nordstrom. >> unless you're on canal street here in new york. >> exactly. >> all right, we'll come back to you, rebecca. now to the guidelines from the american heart association that really paint a bleak picture of kids' heart health revealing alarming stats about poor diet and exercise and let's get right to dr. richard besser, health and medical expert. our insider this morning. unfortunate when we're watching michael phelps and the simones and all these american athletes teach us how it's done to see these numbers. >> yeah, this is really important. what the american heart association is saying if we want to have healthy hearts as adults we have to look at kids. two of the areas they're looking at are diet and exercise. when it comes to diet they came up with a healthy diet scale and they found that more than 90% of kids score poor on that scale and when it comes to exercise kids are supposed to get an hour a day of vigorous exercise. when they look at high school kids only 10% of boys, 5% of girls are hitting that bar. that's got to change. >> yes, so, how are we going to change this? you're a pediatrician.
what do you tell your patients? >> well, you know, when it comes to diet parents are really focused on what their babies eat but as they get older and children are exposed to more junk they let up. we need to realize and remember that a child's diet is really a mirror image of what we're eating. so, if we're eating healthy they're going to do better and exercise it comes down to the school. we have to get gym class back in there, recess back in there and we have to spread the word that exercise matters for girls as well as boys. >> thank you. >> hopefully the olympics and watching these women perform is going to make it easier to do that. >> i hope so. we do hope that. okay, rich, thank you very much. and finally, we got a big talker this morning. that's why we have t.j. heej. >> the outsider. >> so much on the inside. this is a decades old question. did yoko ono break up the beatles? well, paul mccartney is opening up about that in a revealing new "rolling stone" interview talking about that long-standing speculation. you have really dug into this. what's behind this?
>> look, we called it rumor and speculation. for a lot of music fans this is fact and this is a part of music history that this woman is responsible for breaking up one of the greatest bands we have ever known so paul mccartney giving new insights here about it. he said flat out we felt threatened by her when she came around. he said specifically, about them recording at the studio, she was sitting on the amps while we were recording. most bands couldn't handle that. we handled it but not amazingly well. she was right there. fellas can speculate. we got boys night every week, then all of a sudden one of your boys start bringing his girl with him. this was going on here and did not handle it well. >> she's not sitting on the amps anymore. how is the relationship now between paul and -- >> they're all good. for a long time. he even said some cute stuff about her in the article. she's so yoko. you could tell they have a cute relationship. but it took a while -- he said this before. she's not responsible for breaking up this band. john was going to leave anyway and some of the greatest stuff he did in his career he did afterwards and he probably could
not have done without her influence. >> years of maturing and life changes. >> they were kids at the time. >> still people speculate on it. i got a question for you -- on a desert island you can play one beatles song, what is it? >> "let it be." >> how about you, rich? >> "hey jude." it's a long one, it's a beautiful one, i love that song. >> and rebecca? >> you're stranded on an island, right. "yesterday." yesterday is the day i long for. >> should ask which island. >> robin. ♪ i wanna hold your hand >> on the island, right. >> i really want to do that. >> "all you need is love." >> "blackbird" is good too. >> just one. >> rich, rebecca, always great to have you here. >> and then t.j. coming up in just two minutes, gold medal close-up. how much gold is actually in that prize? and the big cash, bonuses you

we are back now at our olympic desk here in rio and athletes from all over the world are giving their all for gold and matt gutman has everything you need to know about those medals and what they're actually worth. good morning to you, matt. >> reporter: good morning, amy. now, a gold medal is something that every athlete here hungers for, but in our painstaking research on everything gold we learned that these medals are not entirely made out of gold. possibly because these suckers weigh a pound. and if they were made out of gold entirely they would cost about 22,000 bucks. ♪ it has become the classic post-race pose. olympians showing off their golden appetite. turns out it's an old method of testing whether a medal is pure. olympic gold medals haven't been made out of solid gold since
1912 after two world wars caused gold shortages and today's medals only contain about 1.34% gold. the rest, sterling silver. >> those who are taking home the gold medal today is worth about $564. >> reporter: some gold medals wind up being worth much more than others like jesse owens' track and field medal from the 1936 games auctioned off for nearly $1.5 million. >> the important thing about increased value of a gold medal are the stories behind them. michael phelps, the final five could be one of the best stories in olympic history. so you know that those medals are going to go for very high value. >> reporter: but the recipients of the 812 gold medals that will be awarded at these games shouldn't be too disappointed that their gold medal isn't solid gold. countries like kazakhstan give each of their gold medal winners $250,000. malaysia even awards its winners with a solid gold bar.
and for our gold medalists representing the red, white and blue, $25,000 that uncle sam will tax as income. now, there's apparently another reason that the olympians bite their gold medals. that's because photographers ask them to do that. now, i want to show you something, amy. every credential reporter here gets this fancy swag bag, inside three things -- one, headphones. that makes a lot of sense, the other is this medal for the hardship of working here in rio for the games and lastly, you'll love this, a big old can of off. that's to i guess stop the zika. amy. >> yeah, you know what, i haven't had to use any of that. so, it's been a good thing, matt, thanks so much. speaking of gold we have an olympic gold medalist joining us live and keith urban in central park. we'll be right back. coming up "gma's" summer concert series presented by king's hawaiian, irresistible since 1950.

trump's campaign. meantime, hillary clinton is releasing her 2015 tax returns as early as today putting more pressure on trump to do the same. of course, he is refusing to release his taxes while he is under audit. and a big scare on a jetblue flight overnight. severe turbulence forced the plane to make an emergency landing in south dakota. it was heading from boston to sacramento. 24 people were taken to the hospital. the injuries described as minor. and we do expect to learn more today about how a 3-year-old boy fell off this roller coaster in pennsylvania. park officials are not saying exactly what led up to the fall or the extent of his injuries. now, the minimum height posted is 36 inches, and this is the third major safety incident at a u.s. amusement park this week alone. federal health officials say they will now divert money away from cancer and diabetes research and other programs to fund development of a zika vaccine. they do blame congress for faying to pass new funding. three more locally transmitted
cases of the zika virus have been confirmed in miami bringing the total to 25 in that city. and a teen from suburban chicago is recovering from a shark attack in the bahamas. he was snorkeling on a family vacation when he felt the shark tear into him. he thought that he might lose his leg, but doctors, they were able to rebuild the muscle and save it. >> i kicked its nose, and then it went up to get me again and then it let go and swam away. i really want to thank the doctor that saved my leg too because that might not have happened. >> dr. donalds. >> what's his name? >> dr. donalds. >> yeah, he is lucky and blessed this morning, and it took his parents an hour to get him to the hospital but he made it and he is walking again. amazing. and for the first time in his career, lebron james is the highest paid player in the nba, and he deserves it. he's agreed to a three-year, $100 million contract with the cleveland cavaliers after leading the team to their first ever nba championship. and now let's head back to rio for the headlines from the summer games.

♪ and we're back now with our "gma" games, and, hey, everybody, it is time for a soccer shoot-out. let's first meet our competitors. representing team stars, we've got paula and gold medalist dominique dawes. they're going to be shooting the regular white soccer balls. and on the other side we have team stripes rob and gold medalist mckayla maroney. they'll be using the blue colored soccer balls. and this is no easy task today because defending the goal we have major league soccer's 2015 goalkeeper of the year, luis robles of the new york red bulls and, luis, i want to ask you first a quick question about the
u.s. women's soccer team. they're getting ready in a couple of hours to play sweden. last time these two played it was a draw. how do you think the u.s. fares tonight? >> they're golden. i know they're playing against their ex-coach but nonetheless they'll get a victory and move on to the next round. >> it's a big gold medal hope. before we get going, i got words of encouragement and wisdom from a former olympic soccer champ herself, julie foudy, guys. take a look. >> all right, guys, here are the keys to a penalty kick shoot-out. one, know where you're going. two, do not change your mind and, three, if you're not feeling confident, no one knows. fake it till you make it. go get 'em. >> all right. fake it till you make it. that's advice i've been using my entire life. >> that's what we do in tv. fake it till we make it. >> luis, in net. now that you know and julie foudy has told you how to win
the game, each team, you have 20 seconds to kick as many soccer balls into the net as you can. team star shsz you're up first. paula, you ready? your time starts now. osi block. no, not at the same time. we have two. rob, there is nobody in net. it's a tradeout. mckayla maroney, that's a goal. luis robles getting pelted right now. two white balls in the net. [ whistle ] and that's time. time, time, everybody. time. luis, come on over here. you absolutely just got pelted. do you have any idea on the count who won? >> i think paula was out for blood. >> i think she was too. >> yes. >> i saw more -- >> somehow i survived. >> i saw more of the stars' soccer balls. so the winner of this soccer shoot-out, team star, dominique and paula and i'll go ahead and get ready to adjust the leaderboard. the gold goes to you. fantastic job. any trash talk you want to give? >> you know, mckayla was a
ringer. she said she played soccer when she was a kid and most gymnasts don't play any other sport, so that's why i had to roll it in. >> and what was the source of your fury and anger in shoot-out? >> i just told rob, he's going down. he's going down. >> sometimes you got to use whatever motivation you can to win an event. great job today. luis, thanks so much for coming out today. hope you're not bruised too bad for the upcoming season. check them out tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. at red bull arena. we'll be right back.
