the 21-year-old lucky to be alive this morning. good morning, america. you're going to want to see that whole video. a real hero right there. it's a great friday in times square. and in central park as well. look at that crowd. packing in for country star jason aldean. he's going to perform live. and all eyes right now on the tropical threat in the atlantic. ginger is tracking that. but first, we want to get a major security breach overnight. a man in nebraska evading police, making it on to the tarmac. striving a truck right into a plane while passengers were boarding. abc's david kerley is at the reagan national airport with the latest on all of that. good morning, david. >> reporter: amy, this is a scary one. a man screaming, jumping into that truck, slamming into a jetliner with police chasing the entire way. it's an airline pickup truck that was slammed into a jetliner. in the process of loading. the end of a bizarre security
7:02 am
breach in omaha. >> we just got a report of a person possibly jumping the fence over at the airfield. you guys have any word on that yet? >> reporter: it was 9:30 in front of the nebraska airport when the man was screaming that people were trying to kill him. police approached. >> they tried to calm him down. he bolted for the parking garage. >> reporter: a foot chase with the suspect jumping a fence. on to the airport runway. >> i don't have word on it. but i do see police en route on foot. >> reporter: the suspect having stripped off his clothes except his underwear, jumps into an unlocked and running pickup truck. it's now a vehicle chase. >> apparently somebody jumped in a truck on the runway out there. >> reporter: when police cruisers cut off the truck, the suspect doubles back. and that's when he slams into the nose gear of a southwest jet in the process of boarding. >> they're all just east of the tower now. right next to southwest. he ran into a southwest. just in front of the tower. >> reporter: two crew members on the jet suffered minor injuries.
7:03 am
in the collision. and minor injuries for the suspect, who was restrained and still screaming when he was taken into custody. quite an evening on the tarmac. one airline employee summing it up on the radio in just one word. >> wow. >> reporter: wow indeed. police believe the suspect may had taken drugs leading to his behavior. southwest has taken the jet out of service to check for damage to the nose gear. george? >> that was a scary one. thank you, david. the race for the white house now, engulfed in charges about race. hillary clinton and donald trump accuse each other of bigotry overnight. as a new national poll shows clinton with a ten-point lead. jon karl has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, george, hillary clinton used her only public appearance this week to launch a blistering indictment of donald trump, painting him as part of a racist political fringe. overnight on cnn, donald trump tried to explain his explosive claim that hillary clinton is a bigot. >> her policies are bigoted
7:04 am
because she knows they're not going to work. >> but you're saying she's personally bigoted. >> she is. of course she is. her policies. they're her policies. she comes out with the policies. >> hatred is at the core of that? >> or maybe she's lazy. >> reporter: after several days off the campaign trail, clinton is now firing back. >> more and more it seems as though his real message seems to be make america hate again. >> reporter: clinton says trump is spreading prejudice and promoting white supremacists online. >> like the user who goes by the name white genocide tm. trump took this fringe bigot with a few dozen followers and spread his message to 11 million people. >> reporter: trump bluntly told our new hampshire affiliate he doesn't want white supremacists to vote for him. >> no, i don't at all. not at all. and i will tell you that this is not about hate. this is about love. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump is taking heat from conservatives for backing away from his vow to deport millions of undocumented immigrants.
7:05 am
>> who wants those people thrown out? >> i do! >> reporter: top conservative trump backer ann coulter told abc news that whomever advised trump to soften his position on immigration should be fired. >> i'm trying to encourage donald trump to dump whomever the moron is. >> reporter: but trump now seems unclear exactly what his position is on deportation. >> you know it's a process. you can't take 11 at one time and say, boom, you're gone. >> reporter: clinton is also taking aim at the ceo of the campaign, the former head of breitbart.com. >> breitbart embraces people on the extremist fringe. on conservative right. >> reporter: and there may be more turmoil ahead for the trump campaign ceo. with reports he faced a domestic violence charge in 1996. after the kind of attack hillary
7:06 am
clinton leveled at donald trump yesterday, you might expect that republican leaders would leap to the defense of their party's nominee. but, george, as of now, they've been largely silent. no notable tweets or statements from leading republicans defending trump from the alarming charges made by hillary clinton. >> okay, thanks very much, jon. let's talk about that with kellyanne conway, mr. trump's new campaign manager. there.pick up with jon left off no tweets from reince priebus. the speaker of the house, paul ryan, or mitch mcconnell. are you disappointed? that gop leaders aren't stepping up to defend donald trump. >> reince priebus was with mr. trump last night in aspen together at a fund-raiser. they'll be in las vegas together. >> nothing public. >> i think they're busy behind the scenes. we had the rnc yesterday. we feel really good about the relationship between the presidential campaign and the republican national committee. but, you know, george, this entire conversation had to be had. usually republican nominees are not bold enough to go into communities of color and take the case right to them and compete for all ears and all votes.
7:07 am
they've been afraid to do that. mr. trump deserves credit. >> he's been talking about the black community but doing it in white communities. >> he's hoping they're listening. we had african-american leaders from many different states together in a meeting. it was a productive conversation. they're telling him what concerns them within their communities. he's listening. >> we heard mr. trump say he thinks hillary clinton is a bigot. do you think she is? >> i think her policies have left many people behind. if we're going to look at the 70% of americans saying this country is headed in the wrong direction and they want change, then we can't abide policies by really a political party and hillary clinton -- >> but is mr. trump right to call her a bigot? >> is she right to call him a bigot? he's called a bigot, a racist, a sexist. why is her team allowed to just hurl personal insults and get away with not having a press
7:08 am
conference in 265 days? . no press conferences, no press outreach. more to the point, why is she giving speeches with two months to go about him and about a website and not about health care and the economy and education? and isis? all the things americans tell people in the abc polls they care about. >> i think she brings up the website because it was run by the ceo of your campaign right now, mr. bannon. and we saw those reports yesterday saying he had been charged with domestic violence back in 1996. actually, according to court records, told his wife not to appear to file the charges. was mr. trump aware of this? is he okay with it? >> i don't know what he was aware with respect to a 20-year-old claim where the charges were dropped. so, that's all i know about it is what i read. >> let's talk about immigration. a lot of questions about mr. trump's policies the last couple of days. throughout the primaries, he was very clear. all the undocumented immigrants in the country would have to leave the country.
7:09 am
is that still his position? >> yes, i think you've heard him over the course of a week explain his position as being what it's always been. which is absolutely no amnesty. he's going to build a wall, which has been the centerpiece of his campaign from the beginning. he wants to protect the american worker, which is a way of talking about immigration that very few people do. he wants to make sure american workers looking for jobs who feel like they're competing with other folks have the opportunity. he has also made very clear that those who have committed a crime will be returned immediately. and enforcing the law, unfortunately, in washington, is such a novel concept. estimates are, if you enforce the law, so much of this takes care of itself. as he said last night to a different anchor and a different network, we don't know how many are out there. >> he said a couple of different things over the last couple of days. on sean hannity's show, he suggested that the undocumented could stay here legally. then he talked on anderson cooper's show about leaving the country and then coming back. if they stay, will there be a path to legalization?
7:10 am
or must they leave the country? >> he has said no path to legalization, no path to citizenship and no amnesty. you can return home, and if you would like to stand in line, like everybody else is taught in kindergarten to stand in line, wait your turn, go through the normal courses. that would be evaluated on a case by case basis. >> how will he get them out of the country? >> that will be determined. he has to talk to law enforcement agencies. this has never been tried on such a scale. and in fact, it's president obama who has deported by some estimates 2 million plus people. we know it's possible. it's just how do we -- how are we dealing with the fact, a, we have illegal immigrants living among us? he wants to find a fair, humane way that doesn't cause people harm. >> just to be clear, final point, all the undocumented immigrants in the country will have to go? >> he has said first you throw the bad ones out. the ones who have committed a crime, they leave. we don't know the number. some people have estimated 1
7:11 am
million. but i don't think anyone clearly knows. then you find a humane, fair way to deal with those who are still here. he said last night, they would have to return to their home countries. and then, if they would like to come back the way they should have in the first place, they're welcome to do so. we're the most generous country to immigrants in the world. and that won't change under donald trump. amy. >> all right, george, thanks so much. now to the very latest on the tropical threat. a tropical wave headed to the gulf. ginger is here tracking the very latest for us. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, amy. this thing is looking less and less healthy. that means less and less threatening as we go through the next couple of days. watch this, the tropical wave we have been watching, still in the caribbean, hitting the elevation. that means friction. that is not good for the development of a tropical storm. then the wind shear displaces where the storm is. however, still has a chance in the next three to five days, a 60% shot now of becoming a named tropical depression or storm. what it means in general for
7:12 am
south florida, is watch it, but don't freak out. certainly not at all. because a lot of the convection, the rain is south. we'll keep watching. >> thanks, ginger. now to tensions rising in the persian gulf after a situation at sea. a u.s. navy patrol boat firing three warning shots at an iranian vessel. this is just the latest in a series of close calls in that region. martha raddatz joins us now from washington with the latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this is the most aggressive behavior by the iranians in recent memory. the u.s. had two coastal patrol boats in the persian gulf approached by three iranian vessels that were crisscrossing the bow of the u.s. boats at high speed. i know from having been on u.s. ships in the gulf that there are escalating warnings given. radio calls. loudspeakers. horns, flares. the iranians finally veered away, but later returned, aiming head on. coming within 200 yards.
7:13 am
that's when the three warning shots were fired from a 50-caliber weapon into the water, and the iranians finally turn around. amy. >> and martha, we know we had those ten american sailors captured by iran back in january. is this a sign that tensions are escalating in that region? >> well, there's been constant tension in the gulf over several decades. but there has not been an incident like this where shots were fired in recent memory. this may signal the unhappiness by some factions over the deal and the seemingly warmer relationships with the u.s. amy? >> all right, martha raddatz with the latt. thank you, martha. and now, we're going to get the latest on the search for survivors after the earthquake in italy. the center of the country feeling powerful aftershocks. as the death toll climbs. terry moran is on the scene in the hard-hit village of amatrice. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. rescue teams here are still battling the clock and the dangerous aftershocks that keep rattling this region.
7:14 am
while some hope remains, people are beginning to turn the page. the death toll now over 260. and officials have begun to release the remains of the dead to the families. and the first funerals are beginning today. the italian prime minister has declared tomorrow a national day of mourning. and people are beginning to ask questions and demand answers. how, in a region so prone to earthquakes in a country that's passed laws requiring buildings to be earthquake-proof, such a catastrophe as this could happen. george? >> there was no protection there. >> the pictures still so devastating. all right, now to another community on edge, this one in mississippi. a manhunt under way after two catholic nuns were found dead. the beloved sisters known for serving their community. and abc's ryan smith is here with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, amy. they dedicated their lives to helping the poor at a local clinic. described as two of the sweetest sisters you could have ever imagined. their shocking murders stunning their small community as authorities search night and day for their killers. this morning, a manhunt in
7:15 am
mississippi. two nuns found dead, murdered inside their home. >> everybody's in shock. >> reporter: police canvassing the area, looking for nearby surveillance videos, hoping to find clues as to who may have been responsible for the deaths of sister margaret held and sister paula merrill. >> the police department will continue the work throughout the night and throughout the day until there is a resolution. >> reporter: a spokesperson for the catholic diocese saying the women's home showed signs of a break-in. and that their vehicle was missing. overnight, police finding the car a mile away from their home. >> this is one of the poorest counties in all of mississippi. >> reporter: both women, not only nuns, but trained nurses as well. >> margaret and i have worked together for years. we just see patients and do what needs to be done. >> reporter: sister paula had worked in mississippi for more than 30 years. the pair opening their home to the masses after hurricane katrina left the town without power. this morning, that town now on
7:16 am
edge. >> i don't think i feel too safe. >> reporter: the community and church now mourning the loss of two women who gave so much. >> they came to live out the gospel by serving the needs of people. the people loved them. >> reporter: police are not discussing a motive. and it's not clear whether there is any connection between their work and the killings. the cause of death hasn't been officially determined. >> ryan, thank you. we're going to move on to the dramatic rescue caught on tape. you see a georgia police officer racing to pull a man from a burning car. and abc's steve osunsami is in atlanta with the images caught on the body camera. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, george. shortly after this amazing rescue, authorities gave this police officer a medal. and this morning, for the first time, we're seeing why. >> we got a bad wreck out here in front of my house. this car is going to blow up i believe, man. >> reporter: take a listen to the frantic call for help that officer dan whitney raced to answer at 3:00 a.m.
7:17 am
>> is there anybody inside the vehicle? >> yes, i'm pretty sure it is. but i ain't going to it. it's going blow up. >> reporter: it looks like a ball of flames. and all he has is a small fire extinguisher. then he sees 21-year-old passenger carlos lopez who looks seriously hurt trying to crawl out of a small rear window. the door is jammed. >> climb back in. get a garden hose! >> reporter: officer whitney tries another rear door. then the trunk. then starts in again on the rear window where the 21-year-old is still stuck. >> come on, man, slide back in. go back in. >> reporter: whitney manages to pull the young man out through the broken glass. saving his life. shaking the body camera. that still recorded the dramatic moment. >> get on the ground. >> dan whitney is one of our
7:18 am
outstanding officers. and, quite honestly, it's just a regular day for him. >> reporter: police tell us the seats of that suv were melting as this was happening. the driver of the vehicle did not survive. george and amy? >> oh, man. >> my heart was pounding watching that. >> didn't hesitate at all. just a regular day. >> well, a pretty incredible day. >> it sure was. let's go back to ginger. look at that hail. >> the hail, this is just a regular day in amarillo, texas. pounding into there. the same energy heads north and east today. so, anyone in parts of kansas, wichita is included, right along i-70, west of kansas city, look out for the damaging wind and hail and an isolated tornado.

7:31 am
one mom is making headlines, facing charges for leaving her young children home alone while she picked up food. did authorities overact? that's coming up in the big board. >> lot of people will be weighing in on that one. sara, thank you. first, a new twist in the case making headlines this morning. kentucky woman shayna hubers, convicted of killing her boyfriend, sentenced to 40 years in prison. but now she's getting a new trial. abc's mara schiavocampo is here with the latest on that. good morning to you, mara. >> reporter: amy, good morning. that murder conviction is now overturned because of what one juror says was a misunderstanding. no one would have even known about it but for one unbelievable coincidence. this morning, a shocking ruling. a kentucky judge finding convicted murderer shayna hubers should get a new trial, after officials discovered a juror on her case never disclosed he was a felon. 25-year-old hubers admitted to shooting her 29-year-old boyfriend, ryan poston in 2012, six times with his own gun.
7:32 am
>> ma'am, i killed him in self-defense, okay. >> reporter: hubers describing the graphic details of the shooting during a police interrogation. >> i shot him enough times to kill him. he was laying there still. twitching and making noises. and i shot him in the head. i gave him his nose job he wanted. >> reporter: prosecutors say it was not self-defense, arguing hubers killed poston in anger after he tried to break up with her. and last year, she was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison. now, it's been revealed, one of the jurors on her case was a convicted felon. unknowingly, he claimed, after falling behind on child support more than 20 years ago. information that only came to light in a bizarre twist. one of the lawyers involved in hubers' appeal had represented the juror in 1992. >> this has got to be maddening not just for the prosecutor but
7:33 am
for the judge, who has to now overturn a verdict based on an inadvertent mistake. >> reporter: in a statement, the victim's family says, we respect judge stine's decision. if we must endure another trial, we do so with absolute confidence that justice shall again be served. >> reporter: now that juror said he actually didn't even remember pleading guilty for the child support case it was so long ago. next hearing for hubers is on october 7th. she'll remain in jail as she waits for that new trial. a really remarkable coincidence. same lawyer is now working on the appeal. thank you, mara. we appreciate it. we move on now to the heartbreaking and inspiring story of kayla mueller. our chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with the never-before-seen video of kayla and the
7:34 am
untold story of her parents' exhaustive effort to get her back. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, george. she was the girl left behind. just three years ago this month that that young american woman from arizona, kayla mueller, was taken hostage by isis. and this morning, we're hearing from her parents about their determined fight for her freedom. ♪ the home movies show a young woman full of life, traveling the world to help the innocent victims of war. >> my name is kayla mueller. >> reporter: but that all ended with this video, being seen this morning for the first time. >> i've been here too long. i've been very sick. it's very terrifying here. >> reporter: kayla mueller had been taken hostage by isis on what was supposed to have been a quick trip into syria. as isis brutally murdered three young american men. >> i'm back, obama. >> reporter: the plight of a fourth american hostage, kayla, remained a closely held secret. as her parents, marsha and carl, worked desperately to gain her freedom, sending their own videos to isis. >> please, show mercy and use
7:35 am
your power to free our daughter. >> reporter: there would be some 27 e-mails back and forth between the couple in their kitchen in arizona and kayla's isis captors in syria who, at one point, set a 30-day deadline for a $6 million ransom, or we will send you pictures of her dead body. buut a white house official threatened them with prosecution if they paid ransom for their daughter. >> somehow we survived. but i remember the argument, i said, marsha, we need to do something. they're not going to bring kayla home. >> reporter: a year and a half after she was captured, isis sent the muellers three pictures of their daughter's dead body. later, when the president came to arizona to console them, the muellers said the president made a promise to help the foundation they set up in kayla's name and broke it. >> he says i will help that foundation. you won't know. it will be an anonymous donation.
7:36 am
but i will. i'm still waiting. >> reporter: there hasn't been such a donation? >> no. i'm still waiting for that donation, mr. president. you see the flag at my driveway. it's not something i take lightly. talking about our president that way, but that's what he said. >> reporter: the white house has now confirmed to abc news that the president has indeed not yet made the donation he promised some 17 months ago. but an official said he still intends to, george. >> you can see the disappointment in their eyes. also, in the story tonight, you have interviews with her fellow hostages who tell the story of a remarkably selfless woman. >> she put herself last after them. she had a chance to escape and decided not to because it would endanger other hostages. >> unbelievable. okay, brian, thank you very

i mean, if you look at what the facts are here. which is that the kids appear to have been walking their dogs, right? and someone driving a car sees that the dogs are -- i guess one of them got loose. they needed a little bit of help. and, you know, this neighbor then decides, well, where are your parents? calls the police. don't blame the neighbor. but the fact that when the police arrest her when she arrives home with the food for her kids that she had gone to pick up five miles away, that's the overkill here. >> i guess. don't blame the neighbor? why doesn't the neighbor go to the kids and say, what's going on here? >> well, because, if the neighbor sees a 9 and 8-year-old walking alone, needs help. i think it's okay for the neighbor to say, look, i'm worried. people are going to have different opinions about whether this is right or wrong. but i don't think that you can argue legitimately that it's criminal. you would have to find that this mother had a history of these kinds of problems or some other issue. >> i mean, all of us are shaking

our heads at the table. becky worley included. when my kids were 10 and 8, if i had to go run errands, it was fine. is there a legal cutoff -- is there an actual age that authorities -- that's on the law? that you can't leave your kids alone? >> yeah, it varies state to state. in the state of delaware, you can report anything for a child under 12 who is unsupervised. it becomes a judgment call. >> i was babysitting at 12. >> yeah. >> other people's kids. >> when i was 10 -- when i was 10, when i was 10 i was taking the new york city bus by myself to school. i mean, you know, it's like -- this is a 9-year-old and 8-year-old in a vacation rental area. i just think that they got nervous. the police. the police probably made a mistake here. $500 bond. >> wow. all right, dan, thank you very much. we're going to move on now to amazon coming under fire for its subscribe and save program.
7:42 am
it's a service that automatically refills orders for everyday products like paper towels and toothpaste. some are upset, saying the prices they've been charged have fluctuated dramatically. what's going on here, becky? >> subscribe and save. but some people worry this is bait and switch. so, as you explained, amazon lets you sign up for the standing order on staples -- shampoo, toothpaste. they give you a 5% to 15% discount. "the new york times" pointing out a forum where people complaining that prices fluctuated wildly. we dug up some examples. folger's coffee, june, $6. august $12-something. moisturizing lotion. $6-something in july. in august, $10. sometimes doubling in price. guys, now, amazon said they warn
7:43 am
people about all these price fluctuations. they send an alert ten days before the shipment is sent. dynamic pricing is something that's all over the internet. >> i did it with razors. i thought i had the same price all along with razors. i didn't read it closely enough. why is this striking such a nerve? >> well, think about it. we go buy things like razors, like paper towels, and you go into the store, i buy paper towels every week, i don't think the price is going to double next week. well, online, amazon wants to change a price on 1 million items in inventory, click, click, done. you do that at walgreen's, hey, bob, take your price gun out. there's 1,000 bobs doing it in 1,000 stores. losing an entire day of work. this doesn't happen in brick and mortar. we're going to move on to an article in "the wall street journal" that caught our eye, it asked the question, when is it okay to let your children quit an activity? like piano lessons, soccer. dr. lombardo, the word quit sounds so negative. but the article makes the point it can be constructive if done the right way.
7:44 am
>> the word quit has negative connotations. yet, there may be some benefits to letting your children stop activities. on one hand, they can focus their energy and their time on other things, like academics and other extracurricular activities. and on the other hand, they actually can have free time to have family dinners. research shows that kids that have dinner with their families do better academically, have less stress, and are less likely to engage in risky behaviors. >> i remember when my mom let me quit gymnastics after six years. it was like a weight was taken off me. how important is it to let your kids be a part of the decisionmaking process? >> this is a great opportunity to teach your children decisionmaking. help your child come up with the pros and cons of stopping the activity and the pros and cons of sticking with it. work through the problem-solving process with them. not only will they get the skill of how to solve problems
7:45 am
rationally, but an added bonus, they're more likely to buy into your decision, which is the ultimate decision, if they're part of that process. >> mine was when i got to quit the marching band. >> what was your instrument? >> trumpet. >> i also got to quit the french horn. i was horrible. >> see, i disagree with you guys. i quit piano lessons. i regret not being able to read music. but thank god i didn't have to keep going with tennis lessons. >> dan? >> i gave up on the violin. i think everyone was very relieved by that, both my music teacher and my family. >> we'll end on that note. all right, dan, thank you so much. dr. lombardo, becky, we appreciate it. coming up next, gio is in central park where it's getting really loud. >> it's going to be loud at the football games this season. why doctors are telling us to wear these ear plugs and even download a special app. coming up in two minutes. stay with us. and like millions of women worldwide i trust tena.

season, one of our favorites around here, we're back now with big noise at the big stadiums. the roar you hear during concerts and games, sometimes so loud it's deafening. cheering can be exciting. experts warn it could damage your hearing. abc's gio benitez is in central park with more. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey sara, good morning to you. we're going to be testing these crowd levels here in just a moment. at our own concert here for "gma." but you might be surprised to hear what you will hear at these stadiums. take a look. this sunday, the vikings are kicking off their first preseason home game at a brand-new stadium. and fans, listen up, you're in for an earful. when the u.s. bank stadium hosted metallica last week, the concert not only brought down the house, it had some complaining about the noise levels. one fan tweeting, i think i've suffered long-term hearing damage. another posting the next morning, my ears are still ringing.
7:49 am
♪ i want to self-destruct >> reporter: that metal music not necessarily to blame. it's the stadium itself. and the acoustically reflected material on its roof. according to a hearing expert, this means noise levels during a football game here could sound ten times louder than other nfl football stadiums. to put it in perspective, a normal conversation is around 60 decibels. a lawn mower can reach around 90. and doctors say, anything over # 5 could be harmful. >> the thing to remember with noise exposure is that it's cumulative. so, after decades of attending concerts and football games, you could wind up with permanent noise-reduced hearing loss. >> reporter: kansas city's arrowhead stadium holding the world record for the biggest roar at 142 decibels. that's louder than a jet taking off. seahawk fans have clocked in at 137.6 decibels. and in new orleans, the mercedes-benz superdome has reached 122.6.
7:50 am
and that is a lot. take a look. because this weekend in minnesota, they're actually going to be passing out a lot of these earplugs here at the door for free. but now we're going to test the decibels here at our park here. ready. let's give a good roar here. go! [ cheering ] >> reporter: remember that limit is 85. and we have reached that limit of 85. so it looks like we might need these earplugs. back to you guys. >> wow. maybe us, too. but, i don't know. i'm going to the uga-tennessee game in october. i'm not wearing earplugs at all. it's going to be awesome. coming up next, back to school hacks. simple ways to make starting the school year stress free. and then our huge party in the park. country superstar jason aldean here live. rocking us into the weekend. no earplugs necessary. dean here live. rocking us into the weekend. no ear plugs necessary. an here live. no ear plugs necessary.

8:14 am
>> reporter: now, writing to her 2.7 million instagram followers, i'm left disappointed, saddened by mylan's actions. i do not condone this decision. i have ended my relationship with mylan as a direct result to it. the pharma company with a virtual monopoly on epipens, increasing prices more than 400% in just the last eight years. hitting families like jennifer velez, whose 9-year-old daughter, lola, is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. >> i was shocked. last year, it was $300. i heard $600, i was just amazed. >> reporter: velez, one of the first to sign this online petition in july asking congress to stop the epipen price gouging. >> i just don't understand what their justification is. >> reporter: now, mylan responding to the outcry saying it will help subsidize the cost of its device with, among other things, a $300 instant savings card. a coupon the company says will

help insured families who pay full price out of pocket save up to 50% of the cost. so with these new changes, mylan will cover up to $300 for some patients. mostly those with high deductible insurance plans. a number of lawmakers say the changes don't go far enough. mylan's ceo heather bresch says the epipen's increased costs are a result of a broken system. and that, quoting i'm running a business. i'm a for-profit business. i'm not hiding from that. george? >> okay, rebecca, thank you very much. let's talk to dr. jen ashton about this. pick up on the last point. people see the price. they can say, this is wrong. we have to do something about it. but this is a complicated issue. >> it is. there are multiple elements involved here. there are medical aspects. there are political aspects. there are economic aspects. a lot of people saying this comes down to free market versus government regulation or control. people also asking about why a generic competitor hasn't been brought to market.

these are my epipens. by the way, you don't just need two. you need them at school, you need them at work, at home. really, you're talking about $600 you're hearing. multiply that by three. i think the key here, what we're hearing with parents, taking the lead, through social media. there are some things parents can do. number one, they cn ask pharmacists, doctors, their insurance companies, about savings, coupons, discounts, rebates. it's worth a try. the other thing is, be vocal. i always say, start local. and then expand your reach to a global. and then look for support on social media. we're seeing a phenomenon that really has the impact to make some change. again, so many problems with our health care system. we have to put the term care back into health care. >> last word right there. jen ashton, thank you very much. and coming up here, back-to-school tricks to make your mornings easier and help your kids ace their homework. help your kids ace their homework.
