7:01 am
our goal here is -- many talking. jared kushner's voice, why his rare public moment getting so much reaction. new tension with north korea after the american student held captive, otto warmbier, dies at the age of 22, less than a week after returning home with extensive brain damage. president trump condemning that country. >> it's a brutal regime. we'll be able to handle it. >> warmbier's parents reacting overnight. and up for parole. o.j. simpson ready to ask for his freedom again. is the former nfl star serving 33 years about to go free? what o.j.'s life is like behind bars right now and the three things he wants to do if he gets to leave prison. one of his closest friends speaking out on "gma." we do say good morning, america.
7:02 am
it's great to have david with us here this week as george takes a well-deserved vacation and this tuesday morning busy and watching severe weather coast to coast. >> and summer officially starts tonight and there are dangerous wildfires you can see in the southwest, it's so hot they're actually grounding flights. >> canceled flights. take a look at this time lapse to show a severe storm moving into new york city. i think robin is just trying off now. >> i got caught in that. >> in just the last few minutes we're tracking more weather, severe weather into the day. ginger has the latest. >> it's not just the fires and severe weather but this disturbance in the gulf mexico because, yes, we are in the middle of hurricane season that we're going to get to, more than 170 severe storm report, so many stuck on runways and obviously like robin stuck in that storm. an east coast deluge. more than 2,000 flights canceled. up to 2 inches of rain filling manhattan roads. this time lapse showing the
7:03 am
storm blast across the city. surveillance video in delaware shows debris flying as gusts up to 64 miles per hour blew through. >> i'm getting home early so i can beat the storm. they said something about hail and all that. i don't need that in my life right now. >> reporter: in washington, d.c., trees burying cars. >> i woke up to a loud bang and plaster in my room. >> reporter: and west of the rockies, the story is heat. at least 20 large wildfires, california to colorado, 118-degree temperatures grounding air travel in phoenix. and a deadly dust storm in new mexico causing a 25-car pileup at the arizona state line so as you see these excessive heat warnings and watches pop up on the map. know this sh, you're thinking why is that? the air is thin so you'd need a lot more speed to get the plane up or along a longer runway which they don't have. san francisco, and numbers on the map approach all-time
7:04 am
records in vegas and even phoenix, and if hits that number, it's not pretty. more coming up on the potential for more tropical storms. >> that's not a dry heat. i'm from the south. that one yesterday when you could see it coming at you, it was something else. >> came out of nowhere. we're going to turn to that tragedy involving american student otto warmbier. he died on monday after returning home with extensive brain injury from north korea. this morning, some are now calling for a travel ban to that country and martha raddatz has all the details for us this morning. good morning, martha. >> reporter: it remains a mystery what caused the blood supply to otto warmbier's brain to be cut off causing the severe damage to the brain of this bright, curious young man, but u.s. official, members of congress and his parents say there is no question it was the fault of the regime of kim jong-un. otto warmbier, the 22-year-old who returned to the u.s. less
7:05 am
than a week ago, unable to walk, speak or respond to verbal commands. suffering extensive brain damage after being held captive in north korea for 17 months. passing away monday. in a statement, his family says when he was carried off that airplane last week he looked very uncomfortable, almost anguished. but that within a day the countenance of his face changed. he was at peace. he was home and we believe he could sense that. the only glimpse of otto while he was detained by north korea was this courtroom video. he was wearing that ivory colored jacket, pleading for leniency after being charged with trying to steal a propaganda poster. after his release otto's father finding comfort wearing his son's jack. >> i'm able to wear the jacket that he wore when he gave his
7:06 am
confession. >> reporter: it is unclear what caused the university of virginia student to suffer what the doctors called unresponsive wakefulness but the warmbiers are place the blame on north korea saying the awful, tortuous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the north koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced. president trump condemning north korea's brutal regime and treatment of warmbier. >> a lot of bad things happened. but at least we got him home to be with his parents. it's a brutal regime and we'll be able to handle it. >> reporter: there are three other americans still being held by the north koreans, but otto's death could push congress or the administration to begin restricting travel there, robin. >> people want to know what else what other action will the u.s.
7:07 am
take, martha? >> senator john mccain this morning is calling it a murder which the u.s. should not tolerate. others in congress are saying the same and secretary of state rex tillerson says that the u.s. holds north korea accountable for his imprisonment but so far there is no indication the administration is planning any sort of retaliation but that is complicated, robin, by the fact those three other americans are still there. >> we have to keep them in our hearts. thank you, martha. >> you just feel for that family. we want to turn to other developments out of washington. the senate health care bill growing tense as they went past midnight protesting the lack of open hearings. they want to pass it before july 4th. democrats say it's been shrouded in secrecy. and of course, that high-stakes special election in georgia and voters going to the polls right now in the most
7:08 am
expensive house race ever, it's in a republican district where president trump won by a slim margin over hillary clinton. steve osunsami is there. a lot of pressure on both sides for republicans to trying to hold on to the seat. for democrat, a real test of whether they'll be able to capitalize on the turmoil in d.c. >> reporter: that's right, david, a mountain of importance has been placed on one this congressional race. we're outside the polling place where republican karen handel will cast her vote hoping to win a seat that republicans have held on to for decades. her opponent is trying to make history and upset a president. more than $50 million, that is how much these two candidates have spent fighting over voters in the suburbs of atlanta. >> good to see you. thank you for being here. >> reporter: making this the most expensive congressional race ever. >> hi. how are you? >> reporter: for supporters of republican karen handel it doesn't matter that across the country many on the left see today's vote as a referendum on the president. >> does it influence your thought on this as all? >> no, i'm a karen supporter and
7:09 am
trump supporter too. >> reporter: in public, democrat jon ossoff usually avoids the issue in public but his supporters aren't shy, saying fighting the president has united democrats across the city. >> it's galvanized the people. >> there are folks across the state and country who have lost faith and in this room this team has the power to help restore some of that faith. >> hi, georgia. san francisco just wanted to say thank you. >> reporter: groups supporting republican karen handel have spent their money underlying how jon ossoff got his large pile of case from outside the state. >> we already have nancy pelosi as our congresswoman. now you'll give us jon ossoff as our congressman. >> a squirrel will get a lot of votes if he has $30 million him. >> the president is pointing out
7:10 am
ossoff doesn't live in the 6th and can't even vote in the district he wants to represent. ossoff explains that he doesn't live in this district because he's with his girlfriend, who is a student at emory university and he wants to live closer to campus and also, the president is up again this morning hammering him on this issue. robin. >> that he is, all right, steve, thank you. more now on the health care bill and democrats launching a marathon protest last night and our congressional correspondent mary bruce was there as many were. >> reporter: it was an all-nighter as democrats are railing against republicans for writing their health care bill behind closed doors. this is legislation that could dramatically roll back the expansion of medicaid and change the way americans get their coverage. but there have been no hearings and no open debate. now republican leaders insist they've been working on it for years and plenty of debate in the past but democrats say they are going to use every single procedural tool they have
7:11 am
available to them to try and delay this fight and force republicans to bring their bill out into the open, even though they don't have the political power to actually block republicans. >> and senate republicans say they want to get this done before they go home for the july 4th recess. how is that looking? >> reporter: yeah, in order to get that done, they have just nine legislative days left to pull it off. republicans insist they're getting closer and making progress and a vote next week is still possible but seen no legislation this morning. >> mary bruce, up late and up early this morning for us. thank you. >> hard working as always. let's bring in jonathan karl this morning. you got the white house tracking this white house fight and democrats angry over secrecy and that very close race in georgia, the president even tweeting about it, a lot at stake enfor him. >> reporter: it is only 1 seat out of 435 in the house of
7:12 am
representatives but this is a hugely significant race, david. this is a congressional seat that has been republican in republican hands since before the democratic candidate was even born. it was newt gingrich's seat so a loss here for republicans would be a real warning sign about what would happen next year in the midterm electrics and the most expensive race, david, by my count more than half a dozen presidential tweets on this race in the last 24 hours. >> that means we know someone else is watching closely. the president. a lot of talk on social media this morning on something we have not much on before, his voice, jared kushner. here he was talking to technology leaders. take a listen. >> before i came to washington, many warned me that the bureaucracy would resist any change that we tried to implement. so far i have found exactly the opposite. >> jon, even had a field day
7:13 am
hearing what kushner actually sounds like, why now? >> it's amazing that we are hearing from him the first time after five months in office. he has a hugely significant job here, david. he was speaking yesterday because he brought in those technology leaders. amazon, microsoft, apple. all here as part of his initiative to modernize the federal government. later this week he is going to the middle east to work on middle east peace and he's speaking because these are important projects. he really needs to be out there. one of the more important things we have heard more from the secretive jared kushner in the past 24 hours than from the white house press secretary. >> what's going on? we didn't hear from sean spicer yesterday. no cameras or audio allowed. will it continue today? >> david the white house has been all over the map on this. when the press schedule went out, no press briefing listed on not on camera or offschedule. we received an update, yes, in
7:14 am
fact sean spicer will hold an on-camera briefing today, only his fourth briefing all month. david. >> they're going to face a lot of questions. jon karl, our thanks to you again as always. michael. >> thank you david. now the new images showing that mysterious crash at sea between a u.s. navy destroyer and a cargo ship and good morning to you, matt. >> reporter: good morning. this is one of the navy's worst at sea disasters in years and one thing certainly investigated how that sophisticated ship got so blindsided but why the crew of that container didn't stop to help after nearly sinking it. this morning, exclusive new images of the battered container ship. workers surveying that mangled steel. there is new details come in about that hellish night and "uss fitzgerald"'s captain was
7:15 am
asleep in his cabin when 30,000-ton acx crystal plowed into the ship's top decks. beneath the water line, the container ship's bulbous bow punched through the destroyer's steel armor. the "fitzgerald" was flooding and abc nuz has learned that the navy is investigating whether some of the seven men found dead in that flooded berth were alive when it was sealed off in an effort to keep it from sinking. is there protocol for that? >> mentality is that you're going to fight any catastrophe and casualties where they occur and preserve the integrity of the rest of the ship. i guarantee everybody would do everything they could. >> reporter: but instead of stopping to help, multiple gps navigational trackers show the container ship continued on its original course for 30 minutes. only then turning back to the scene and didn't alert authorities until 50 minutes after the collision.
7:16 am
this morning, the remains of the seven sailors land back in the u.s. darryl martin lost his son xavier. >> it's very hard. it's my only child. that's all i have. >> the parent ship's container company says it is complying with the investigation but the company couldn't explain what certainly seems like a hit-and-run on the high seas. why the ship kept going for seven miles before making that u-turn and waited nearly an hour before calling authorities about what happened. >> michael. >> all right, thank you, matt. amy, you're here with the other top stairs, starting with a massive security breach. in fact it's being called the largest breach of personal data of its kind. detailed information of about 198 million registered voters here in the united states has been accidentally exposed on line by a data firm working for the republican party. the leak was exposed by a cybersecurity expert. names, addressed, phone numbers
7:17 am

comfortable 71 san francisco, 78 in oakland, 88 in san jose, 92 santa rosa, 100s in our east bay. tonight, 50s and 60s. hopefully, you coming up, o.j. simpson about to get a new parole hearing and what one of his closest friends tells us what his life is like behind bars. but to help others, they first had to protect themselves. i have afib. even for a nurse, it's complicated... and it puts me at higher risk of stroke. that would be devastating. i had to learn all i could to help protect myself. once i got the facts, my doctor and i chose xarelto®. xarelto®... to help keep me protected. once-daily xarelto®, a latest-generation blood thinner... ...significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least 6 blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor interacting
7:21 am
with less of your body's natural blood-clotting function. for afib patients well-managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® compares in reducing the risk of stroke. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you've had spinal anesthesia, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures... ...and before starting xarelto®-about any conditions, such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. it's important to learn all you can... ...to help protect yourself from a stroke. talk to your doctor about xarelto®. there's more to know™. so we got our new he washing machine but it took forever turns out it wasn't the machine, it was our detergent. so we switched to tide turbo clean. now we get way cleaner clothes way faster

7:31 am
little something to make you feel good. take a look at this, two elephants teaming up strategizing to save a baby calf that was near drowning in a zoo in south korea. incredible teamwork, look at this. >> wow. >> they were able to get that baby calf out of the water and survive the whole thing. >> that's great. >> great video. >> yeah, it was. >> i searched for that all night. >> thank you, david. >> not like you have a second job in the evening. we're going to begin with that big parole hearing for o.j. simpson. the nevada department of corrections hours away from announcing the date when commissioners will meet and decide o.j.'s future. we spoke with one of his closest friends and, amy, he's revealing his state of mind. >> that's right. it is a huge day for o.j. simpson because he will learn what day his fate will be determined after nearly nine years and many say simpson actually has a real shot at getting out. this morning, o.j. simpson set
7:32 am
to learn exactly when he will face a nevada parole board to ask for his freedom. >> he's hopeful he's not going to -- try to retry the case. he's done a lot of positive things in prison. >> reporter: simpson's close friend tom scotto says he talks over the phone to the former nfl star on a weekly basis. >> he wants to keep a low profile. be with his kids, be with his family, play golf is one of his main things. >> count one, conspiracy to commit a crime, guilty. count two, guilty. count three, guilty. >> reporter: simpson currently serving 33 years on charges after a botched 2007 attempt to recover sports memorabilia he said belonged to him. this next hearing could set him free. >> i have not had any incidents despite all the stories in the tabloi tabloids. >> anything he's had with other inmates whether tutoring or teaching or coaching and staying out of trouble.
7:33 am
what the parole board wants to see is that you've been rehabilitated. >> orenthal j. simpson, not guilty of the crime of murder. >> reporter: it was more than 20 years ago he was acquitted in the killings of his ex-wife and her friend ron goldman. >> he's o.j. simpson. >> reporter: a civil trial later finding him liable for wrongful death. >> i did not commit this crime. >> reporter: millions tuning this to the fx miniseries, "american crime series: the people versus o.j. simpson" starring cuba gooding jr. and espn's documentary "o.j.: made in america." among those watching ron goldman's family. >> it's like constantly having salt being poured in an open wound. >> reporter: who told abc's matt gutman earlier this year they can't bear the idea of simpson as a free man. >> there is a chance that he could get paroled this year in 2017. >> october, yeah. >> what would that picture look like to you?
7:34 am
>> disgust. >> he did a horrible, heinous crime and i have no feeling except rot in hell. >> reporter: now, if simpson is granted parole he would be 70 when he gets out in october. if he is not granted parole next month they will decide at that hearing the date of the next parole board meeting and it might be another five years, robin. >> he would be 75. all right, amy. let's bring in dan abrams. so what do you think his chances are? >> if he wasn't o.j. simpson his chances would be quite good. he was already granted parole on 5 of the 12 charges so he was in front of the parole board and he made his plea and he was granted parole on those. you need four of the seven commissioners there to recommend release to get release. they do this for about half the people. and o.j. simpson, in 2013, talked about the fact that he was disinfecting prison weight room equipment, he was mopping
7:35 am
floors, he was coaching the prisoners, et cetera, those are the sorts of things you can expect to hear this time around. >> what are the factors? there's a formula almost they look at. >> there are 11 factors and there's a plus and minus for each one so he actually ends up getting a score at the end and they relate to everything, from the crime itself, his behavior in prison, his gender, his age, the fact that he's almost 70 years old will work to his advantage, so you have a whole list of them with plus and minus to each one. again, if you look at what happened in 2013, you would say, huh, same factors are going to be applied here except for the crime itself. you would think that he's got a pretty good shot except the fact that he's o.j. simpson has just got to play into this in some way, shape or form. >> these people are human. and even though he is supposed to be held accountable for the crime he was convicted of, how
7:36 am
can they not think about his previous arrest, even though he was acquitted. >> well, that's right. and that's a critical question because in theory i mean reality, his previous criminal history is a relevant factor in determining whether he gets parole but he has no criminal history because he was acquitted in the criminal case. and that's what drives people like the goldman family that you just saw there crazy, is the idea you're telling me he gets to have no criminal history when assessing whether he's going to be up for parole? so, look, i think this time will be a little different. last time the parole board knew he wasn't going to be released no matter what. but, you know, as i said before, if this were just looking at the crime and just looking at the guy and just looking at the factors i think he probably would be released. >> but it's o.j. simpson. >> it's o.j. simpson. and they have a lot of discretion. >> dan, thanks. we'll see what happens.

report released monday, showed the actress had a combination of drugs in her system and abc's kayna whitworth has more. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: hey, michael. good morning. it was devastating news for her friends and family to learn multiple drugs including ecstasy were found in her system. a coroner saying this relapse along with other factors could have played a role in her death. nearly seven months since carrie fisher's sudden death. the los angeles county medical examiner releasing the coroner's report to abc news monday, revealing fisher had a number of drugs in her system before she died including cocaine, heroin and ecstasy. the report listing the 60-year-old's official cause of death as sleep apnea and other undetermined factors, including heart disease and drug use. noting, however, they could not establish the significance of the multiple substances with regard to the cause of death. >> okay, fine. yes, i am an addict. >> reporter: for years fisher struggled with addiction and mental illness, something she opened up about in her memoir
7:45 am
and one-woman show "wishful drinking." >> you know how they say religion is the opioid of the well i took masses of opioids religiously. >> people used to ask me after i got sober, so are you happy now? and i would say among other things, happy is one of the many things, many emotions i'll go through in a day. you're not just skipping around spouting hallmark cards but, yeah, i'm in a much better place. >> reporter: known for her most iconic role as princess leia. >> somebody has to save our since. >> reporter: fisher's only daughter billy lourd telling abc news her mother ultimately died from her battles with addiction and mental illness saying, she talked about the same that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. i know my mom.
7:46 am
she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. coroner's report indicated cocaine would have been consumed within 72 hours of her flight. i want to show you a picture. the actress seen gracing the cover of this month's "vanity fair" and this is the head of the release of the latest "star wars" installment. the last jedi and of course michael and david she completed filming that last summer. >> all right, thank you, kayna, for that. and now we are joined by dr. jennifer ashton and dr. drew pinsky, and thank you for joining us, dr. drew, i'll start with you. carrie fisher, she battled drug addiction her entire life and she's put it out for everyone to know but seemed as if she was clean the last few years. what was your reaction when you saw the toxicology report? >> i mean my -- first of all was this is another tragedy. it's another wonderful individual taken by this terrible disease but, that it's a cutting, powerful, baffling disease and chronic and even
7:47 am
though someone has had long-term successful sobriety can have a recurrence and can be fatal easily. >> thinking about her daughter who put out the statement and dr. jen, we were talking about the sleep apnea which couldn't have obviously have been helped by the addition of the drugs. >> definitely not. you have to understand sleep apnea is a collapse of the upper airway that causes someone to stop breathing for a few seconds many, many times during the course of when they're sleeping. i think, really, the way to look at it over time as a chronic and chronic untreated condition it can cause heart disease and increase the size of the heart and affects the blood vessels and high pressure and increased risk of death but a good way to look at it is, sleep apnea as a chronic condition was the kindling wood, if you will on a fire, the drugs and substances that were in her system could be the gasoline and
7:48 am
together that caused the -- >> yeah, absolutely. >> the report lists a cocktail of drugs found in her system, heroin, cocaine, ecstasy. what can this combination of drugs do to your system? >> well, i mean, you know, we would have to take a while to describe all the potential medical effects but the main issue that contributes to this is the opioid, particularly heroin, we've been reporting a lot about fentanyl and oral opioids combined with benzodiazepines can cause a suppression of breathing and the oxygen is cut off to their brain and something like that is almost what undoubtedly happened. >> i want to add, the troubling thing other than what dr. drew is talking about with a relapse of someone who battled substance abuse, is the fact that the actual full autopsy report was even released in its entirety to the public. i have a huge problem. she may be a world-famous actress but she is an individual patient.
7:49 am
patient privacy in my opinion has to come first. i don't think we need an autopsy report with sketches to get it out. you could have said substances, sleep apnea and i think it was unprofessional. >> i'm sure her family would appreciate that. let's switch over to tiger woods. tiger woods is seeking professional help after that arrest over memorial day weekend for the medications he was taking for back pain and the sleep disorder. what kind of treatment do you expect to see in a case like this? >> well, it's sort of one directions. again, we're merely speculating because we don't have the details of what exactly is going on with him but it looks like he is a chronic pain patient. there's rumors of him get a chronic pain problem. if he has an addictive process
7:50 am
it gets complicated and the kinds of treatment is either a replacement and the fact he was treated for previously a behavioral addiction means abstinence would be the best approach. whichever he is it requires a lot of professional intervention over a long period of time. >> at least he's seeking help. that's the important part. doc, thank you. >> you bet. >> david, nice to sit here. coming up, our exclusive with former bachelorette trista sutter. did stress or lack of sleep lead to a seizure, she's speaking out for the first time on "gma."
