7:04 am
the final stop. the speed limit here, 10 miles per hour. but according to accounts, the train may have been traveling 30 miles per hour, barrelling straight into the waiting area. the train engineer, now identified as 48-year-old thomas gallagher was treated for minor injuries and is cooperating with investigators. here you can see what the historic station used to look like. now the century-old building is in pieces. everyday heros like this man pitching in to help. >> when everybody started running out, i ran in. i saw the train crashed into everything. i just -- i just started trying to help whoever i could. >> reporter: you ran into a building that people were running out of with a superman hoodie. you helped so many people when they were scared and didn't know what to do. >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: what made you run in? >> i don't know. my mom and my dad, you know, they just -- they raised brave kids. >> reporter: perkins found 34-year-old fabiola bittar de kroon in the rubble. she had just dropped her

7:06 am
>> people want answers. moments ago, i spoke with bella dinh-zarr. the vice chairman of the ntsb. i began by asking her about the investigation and what they have learned so far. >> this is our first full day on scene. we arrived as soon as possible yesterday afternoon. and, we have found that this is a -- push/pull car configuration that has crashed into this hoboken station. we're in the process of securing -- making sure that the site is safe so our investigators can access all of the information that's available on these three cars, as well as the engine. >> so, right now you have had limited access to the accident site? >> that's right. we did have access, however, to the locomotive. we are able -- we were able last night to take out the recorder. we will be getting information from that event recorder. >> you want to talk to the engineer and others, right? >> that's right. we will be interviewing the
7:07 am
engineer. we have made that request as well as the other crew members, and we will be checking records, maintenance records, employee records and be doing all of our usual standard operation review of the records. >> what are the main questions you will be asking the engineer? >> we'll be asking the engineer what -- exactly what he was doing. we always look at the 72 hours before the accident to make sure that, you know, to follow his -- his activities during those periods. we'll be asking what he remembers of the actual crash itself. >> the new jersey transit rail was ordered to install a safety system known as positive train control. ptc. this was back in 2008. can you describe what this does and could it have prevented this accident? >> well, the ntsb, robin, has been recommending positive train control for more than 40 years now.
7:08 am
it's a safety system that prevents train-to-train crashes and also prevents overspeed crashes by preventing derailments. >> that type of system, could it have prevented this accident? >> that's what we'll be looking into. i know everyone is really anxious for information. and as are we. we want to look very carefully and be very careful before we present anything other than what we find in our investigation. >> that's fully understood. everyone is anxious for the answers. thank you very much for your time this morning. i know it's a busy day ahead. >> thank you. >> bella dinh-zarr. hopefully, the engineer and other crew members can provide some answers to that. >> 40 years for that system. hopefully this helps push that system forward. a lot to investigate. now to that massive hurricane matthew gaining strength overnight. with winds hitting 100 miles an hour. right now, and ginger has been tracking its path. good morning, ginger.
7:09 am
>> good morning, michael. hurricane matthew, it's a category 2 hurricane. gusts are at 120 miles per hour. fortunately, for the next 36 hours, it stays over the open ocean. only affecting some shipping lanes. but then watch what it does here. it turns to the north. strengthens even more, and that path takes it over cuba into the bahamas by tuesday into wednesday. the next natural question, does it affect the united states? right now, the national hurricane center has it pushing off to the east. that would be great news, but a couple of outlying computer models show it going toward florida. it is one to watch, and not one to be too concerned with yet. that's my line on that one. the flash flooding is more of an imminent threat. north carolina, already more than ten inches of rain. we're on alert from maryland to michigan. a state of emergency in cumberland, north carolina. flash flooding tearing through streets, leaving gaping holes. >> people are still trying to drive through this mess. >> reporter: the road buckling beneath this pickup truck. 10 inches of rain falling in 24 hours.
7:10 am
>> please don't put first responders' lives and your own lives at risk. >> reporter: nearly two dozen people rescued. >> i couldn't see the water. my car stopped. i can't swim. the water is almost up to my door. >> reporter: in detroit. >> people are taking a gamble. >> reporter: drivers barely able to navigate. many ending up submerged. this is unrelated to matthew. get that out there, and just know that it could see coastal flooding and flood watches that include places like philadelphia. robin, george, michael? >> ginger, thank you very much. we move to overseas. to jerusalem where president obama and former president clinton joined dozens of world leaders for the funeral of israeli president, shimon peres. abc's chief foreign correspondent, terry moran is on the scene. >> reporter: it was the end of an era here in israel. you could sense it. so many world leaders joining presidents obama and clinton, from prince charles, who wore a
7:11 am
yarmulke em blazened with his royal crest, to a rare handshake with benjamin netanyahu, all to pay tribute to shimon peres. really the last of the founding generation of the state of israel and a long-time champion for peace right up until the end as president obama said in his eulogy. >> the region -- is going through a chaotic time. threats are ever-present. and yet, he did not stop dreaming, and he did not stop working. >> reporter: as they buried shimon peres on these slopes here in jerusalem, many israelis feeling as if they had lost a kind of father figure. perhaps we're also burying the vision, the hope for peace that he worked so long to achieve. george? >> president obama hit it right there.
7:12 am
president peres was the most tireless idealist i have ever met in my life. >> so impressive to see the world leaders. now to the race to the white house. 39 days until the election. until the next -- and nine until the next debate. and donald trump is lashing out about this week's showdown, calling it rigged, and going after the moderator, as trump makes headlines with a non-endorsement from a major paper. abc's tom llamas is here with all those details. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. donald trump has described his campaign as historic. this morning, he is making history with this headline. "usa today" has never taken sides in the history of the presidential race. now they're advising their readers not to vote for donald trump. one of the nation's most read newspapers, "usa today," telling voters to stay away from donald trump. the paper's editorial board breaking their no-endorsement policy, calling trump a serial liar who traffics in prejudice.
7:13 am
but the board also not backing clinton, saying they didn't have consensus for a clinton endorsement. the warning on trump coming as he is putting a new spin on the debate he claims he won. >> i had to put up with the anchor and fight the anchor all the time on everything i said. what a rigged deal. >> reporter: but that's not what he told me after he walked off that debate stage. mr. trump, how do you think you did tonight? >> i thought it was great. i got everything i wanted to say, i got it out. >> reporter: now, after a senior campaign staffer said trump failed to execute at the first debate -- >> i will work hard. i will tell you that. >> reporter: on "the view" his campaign manager, kellyanne conway, on the defensive. after mocking a miss universe on her weight. >> did you reprimand him and say, listen, why are you calling women fat pigs? did you say that to him? >> yes. i think it's beside the point, but hold on. >> what did he say? >> he gave that particular woman a second chance. >> reporter: and now, "the daily
7:14 am
show" unearthing an interview from 2004 where trump fawns over a 23-year-old female high school teacher arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old boy. >> by the way, did you see what she looked like? >> not bad. >> not bad. i'd say so. do you think the 14-year-old kid is scarred forever? he might have put the move on her. it might have given him confidence actually. >> reporter: back to that exchange on "the view." overnight, donald trump sending out this tweet. did crooked hillary help disgusting check out a sex tape past alicia m., talking about alicia machado, become a u.s. citizen so she could use her in the debate? you have a presidential candidate talking about a sex tape. we have entered new ground. >> one of several new tweets this morning. he was up at 3:20 a.m. doing another tweet complaining about the sources of his campaign. criticizing his debate performance. >> he was up late last night. >> tom, thank you very much. let's go to jon karl. jon, we have to begin with this twitter blast from mr. trump.
7:15 am
kind of inexplicable that he is doubling down like this. >> i'm concerned about the time here, george. you mentioned 3:20 a.m. the others were 5:14, 5:19, 5:30. i don't know if this is a presidential candidate that's getting any sleep, but he does seem to be trying to prove an argument that hillary clinton has made against him in that convention speech of hers when she said, a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons. it's really quite inexplicable. >> he's changing his tune on how the debate went, saying it's rigged. this is coming as we are starting to see a series of polls starting to come in showing a bounce for hillary clinton. >> yes, and it's extraordinary. because if you look in the minutes after the debate, he actually said to cnn that he thought lester holt did a great job, and now we're seeing virtually every poll that comes in showing a big bounce for hillary clinton, and hillary clinton leads in states like florida, new hampshire, michigan and clearly this is getting
7:16 am
under his skin, and clearly, it's a reflection they don't think the debate went well at all. >> maybe later we'll see tweets about "usa today." kind of remarkable. in their 34-year history, they have never endorsed or not endorsed a candidate like that. this was a scathing editorial. and a part of a pattern developing. >> it sure is. you had that. just days before that, you had "the arizona republic," which has not endorsed a democratic presidential candidate in 128 years endorsing hillary clinton. look at this from "the wall street journal" editorial board. dorothy rabinowitz says her endorsement goes to hillary clinton, saying, her election alone is what stands between the american nation and the reign of the most unstable, profoundly unperformed, psychologically unfit president to enter the white house. that's "the wall street journal." >> powerful words there. thank you very much. the next debate, nine days away. it will air live right here on abc. our own martha raddatz is one of
7:17 am
the moderators. the vice presidential candidates face off this tuesday. i will be anchoring live at 9:00 eastern here on abc. >> another long night. now to violent protests in california overnight over the deadly police shooting of an unarmed man. police firing tear gas at the crowd as demonstrators threw bottles. abc's matt gutman has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, dozens of protesters facing off against police. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: el cajon police firing pepperballs into the crowd the disperse it, declaring it an unlawful assembly. police say for the third straight night, dozens of protesters seized intersections, stopping cars after the fatal shooting tuesday of alfred olango. it was his sister who called police, asking for help with her brother, telling them he was unarmed. she was right there when he was shot. this is the instant when police fired. when protesters began breaking motorist car windows and hurling bottles, police say they moved in.
7:18 am
the previous protests had been tense, but relatively peaceful. demonstrators demanding the police release cell phone video which showed the entirety of the incident with olango. now i spoke to the city's mayor last night. he said he's seen the video. and it vindicates the police version, but hes also understands that until he releases that video, that city could see more unrest. guys? >> all right, matt. thank you very much. now to major super bowl news. you remember this performance from last year's big game? ♪ and the home of the brave >> that's lady gaga singing the national anthem at last year's super bowl 50. now, guys, it's official. lady gaga will take the main stage. she tweeted, this year, the super bowl goes gaga. she's doing the half time show. >> she nailed it last year. >> i loved it when she did this. >> yes.

big board. our team of insiders standing by. live for more. you know it's a big board when t.j. is right here. a huge "walking dead" lawsuit. co-creator frank darabont was fired during season two of the hit zombie show. now he has filed a suit against cable channel, amc, chaiming he is entitled to profits from the show, seeking whopping damages. give us a number. >> the man helped create one of the biggest shows on tv. he just wants a small pittance for his trouble. >> what is a pittance? >> $280 million. we are talking about a quarter billion dollars this man is asking for for this show. he says he's owed it. frank darabont is the name. you might not know it. he is the one who pitched the show for amc. wrote it, produced it, directed it. season two, they let him go. >> did they give a reason? >> not much. it has been kind of shady out
7:41 am
there, but he thinks part of the reason is, if he went through the second season, there were certain profits he was owed over the years. they got rid of him early. >> sounds like he might have a case. >> how big of a ratings hit is this show? if he is asking for 200 something million dollars, how much does this show make? >> no matter how much it's making, he argues it's not making as much as it could. something called vertical integration. a network produces a show, sells it, licenses it to itself at a lower rate to keep the profits down and to keep the margins down for people they might have to owe like frank. he says funny business is going on here. whatever texas instruments calculator he's using to figure out the profits are higher than the network actually says. so $280 million is what he is settling on. this is going on for five years. probably won't go to trial for 2018. >> my calculator doesn't have that many numbers on it. all right. we'll keep our eye on that one. >> a lot of zeros. >> heck of a case.
