>> reporter: quite the sight to see that engine nose cone from the end of the shaft still bouncing around in that engine. it's been taken off the aircraft being shipped to atlanta to figure out what happened and, george, they put a new engine on and that jet liner will be back in service later today. >> quick fix. david, thanks very much. we have the investigation now into a carbon monoxide leak that poisoned dozens of people at a motel in canada. abc's janai norman with that story. hey, janai. >> hey, george, good morning. there are so many questions. authorities want to know why so many people at that super 8 in winnipeg, canada, were exposed to carbon monoxide levels that were 20 times the normal limit. >> reporter: the calls came pouring in. reports of an apparent carbon monoxide poisoning inside a super 8 motel in winnipeg. >> the winnipeg fire paramedic service received a general alarm call from this location. >> reporter: authorities say nearly 50 people including staf hospital. more than a dozen listed in
7:13 am
critical condition. fire officials say the leak originated from the motel's boiler room. the major scare set off an alarm that detected the carbon monoxide levels were nearly 20 times over the limit. >> none of the patients were requiring resuscitation. none of them were intubated or anything. quite invasive such as that. >> reporter: carbon monoxide, the so-called silent killer is odorless and colorless, causing symptoms from headache to nausea or worse. out of an abundance of caution, gas was shut off to the building while investigating the cause. >> we don't expect any fatalities from this. >> authorities are crediting an automatic alarm with saving lives. here in the u.s. by law, many states require carbon monoxide detecters, and while the decision to place them in each unit varies, that's
7:14 am
something you always should ask about. >> janai, thank you. amy? a lawsuit facing one of the biggest and most well-known hotel chains, marriott, that could affect travelers around the world. the attorney general in washington, d.c. is suing the company accusing it of using hidden fees to bump up room costs. rebecca jarvis is here with more on this. i'm sure a lot of people are paying attention to this one, rebecca. >> oh, absolutely, amy. these hidden fees have become a big issue. they're frustrating and they can increase the cost of your bill by nearly $100. >> reporter: this morning marriott one of the largest hotel companies in the world sued by washington, d.c.'s attorney general. accused of bait and switch advertising and deceptive pricing practices on bookings made at marriott.com, expedia, priceline and other travel websites. marriott which owns 30 brands including sheraton and the ritz-carlton, is accused of misleading customers and reaping hundreds of millions of dollars by charging hidden resort fees.
7:15 am
the suit alleges those hidden resort amenity or destination fees can quietly increase the true cost of a hotel room by as much as $95 per room per day and can show up on your bill buried under the heading taxes and fees. marriott in a statement says, quote, we don't comment on pending litigation, but we look forward to continuing our discussions with other state ags. amy, a lot of states are now looking into this because it's become such a pervasive issue. >> while we wait for that to happen on capitol hill, what can consumers do in the meantime? is there any way to avoid these fees? >> reporter: there is a great website out there called resortfeechecker.com. and you can go there if you're going to a major city like las vegas or new york. check your hotel ahead of time to see if they impose these fees. another thing i recommend people do, call ahead. call your hotel, tell them i'm planning on staying with you, do you charge these fees? if you do, i'm going to cancel my reservation.
7:16 am
that's a good way to force them to potentially take the fees off your bill. >> i like that. get ahead of it. all right. >> yes, absolutely. advocate for yourself. >> always. those fees do add up. >> they're very frustrating and they do. >> all right. rebecca, thank you. now we turn to the festivities getting under way right here in new york city to celebrate the u.s. women's soccer team after their world cup win. thousands of people are going to be lining the streets for this ticker tape parade. eva pilgrim is already down there at city hall. has more for us. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this area will be filled with die-hard soccer fans here to celebrate the now four-time world champions. they'll be marching through this area of new york known as the canyon of heroes. this is all part of a massive parade, similar to the one they got after winning the world cup four years ago, and will end at city hall where new york city mayor bill de blasio will present them with the keys to the city. today's celebration comes one day after the big homecoming the team got right here on "gma" and after that kickoff, the ladies kept the party going all day,
7:17 am
lighting up social media as they hung out on a rooftop pool in downtown manhattan and they were even treated to a sunset cruise on a $100 million yacht, robin. >> they are living large, eva. i got to tell you they worked so hard so they deserve everything coming their way. there is more excitement heading their way and more work to do as well, eva. >> reporter: that's right. they still have more work to do. the tournament may be over, but they are hoping for a victory off the field. equal pay, mediation with the u.s. soccer federation is supposed to begin here soon, but even before that, they are going to be very busy. today they're here right now on the east coast. they have to fly to the west coast to appear at the espys. that will be live here on abc starting at 8:00 p.m. eastern time. and then there's a victory tour. they will play four exhibition games in cities across the country so that their american fans can see them kick it on the field and finally, robin, hopefully after all of that
