7:02 am
it was a wet and wild weekend for a lot of people. severe storms hitting the west all the way here to the northeast, bringing dangerous winds, rain and flash flooding. >> those alerts on or phone through the early evening. >> kept going off all night, and that threat unfortunately is not over. gio benitez starts us off in pennsylvania where that lightning strike sent a tree crashing into a tent full of people, severely injuring some of them. good morning, gio. >> reporter: yeah, cecilia. good morning to you. it was just after 5:00 p.m. on a sunday afternoon at this popular swim club when lightning struck causing havoc and serious injuries. a summer day at this pennsylvania swim club taking a sudden and severe turn. >> traumatic injuries. mass casualty incident. >> reporter: lightning striking this tree, sending it falling onto a tent. two adults and seven children injured. >> there were three serious injuries and the rest were
7:03 am
minor. it was back injuries and two head injuries. >> reporter: this summer sunday coming after a weekend of wild weather across the country. north of pittsburgh, these patrons taking cover after a microburst tore through this outdoor brewery. trees and powerlines swinging violently. firefighters working around the clock. >> this is one of the worst i've ever seen. we're just glad there were no casualties. >> reporter: the storms leaving thousands without power. in kansas, a lightning-packed storm. a strike causing this house fire in overland park. winds of more than 70 miles per hour to blame for derailing dozens of cars on this train in walton. in south carolina, this man nearly struck by lightning, and speaking out this morning about his close call. >> all of a sudden, i hear this loud boom and crack. i seen, like, a little flashing. umbrella jumped out my hand and it scared the heck out of me. >> reporter: tree after tree captured on camera toppling over. this one on a car.
7:04 am
in durham heavy rains causing 50-car pileup. and back here near philadelphia, we can tell you that cleanup begins later today, and all of those people are still recovering from those injuries, but no doubt, amy, the good news here is that all of them survived. >> yeah. that is good news indeed, gio. thank you so much. unfortunately, that wicked weather is not over yet. ginger is here with the latest. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to you, amy. i know you said you heard it, but did you see it? this was just manhattan here in new york city, where you had that torrential rain. you had winds gusting at least 50 miles per hour. outside of the city, just acrosi thver,ewse1 inch of hail. rewarning. it could happen again today, and you're going to see strong storms develop after 4:00 or so. not just in new york city, philadelphia a possibility there, but also up through boston in the evening hours. then you look to tomorrow, and you have that yellow color. des moines, omaha through the day and the northern part here.
7:05 am
this is noon to 4:00ish, and then 4:00 on. quite a bit to watch for, and in case you're wanting cooler weather, that's the front that will bring it down to the 70s by the end of the week. >> that sounds good. thanks very much. we go to the white house where the president is trying to tamp down talk of a recession after a volatile week on wall street, and an escalating trade war with china. the democrats trying to take down trump seizing the moment. abc's terry moran is tracking it from the white house. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. as you know, the presidents get the credit when the economy is good, and the blame when the economy is bad, and right now with some signs of economic weakness and the markets growing anxious, president trump is playing defense. president trump wrapping up his new jersey vacation return to the white house facing a stark question. is his trade war with china tanking the u.s. economy? >> i don't see a recession. i mean, the world is in a recession right now, and -- although that's too big a statement, but if you look at china, china is doing very, very poorly.
7:06 am
>> reporter: but this is a critical moment for the president. last week, markets reeled. the dow plunging 800 points in one day, then rallied. all the turbulence linked in part to trump's trade war. he keeps insisting the u.s. is winning. >> china is paying for the tariffs, for the 100th time, and i understand tariffs very well. other countries, it may be that if i do things with other countries, but in the case of china, china is eating the tariffs. >> reporter: but most economists disagree. arguing that americans are taking most of the hit from president trump's tariffs. so the white house strategy now, shift the blame for any slowdown to the fed. >> the federal reserve interest rate hikes actually cost us a full point of growth. >> reporter: the stakes couldn't be higher. president trump's campaign argunt how well managed the economy. >> you have no choice but to vote for me because your 401ks, down the tubes.
7:07 am
everything will be down the tubes. >> reporter: but with more signs pointing to economic weakness, democrats now sense the president may be vulnerable on his signature issue. >> we have got to replace him in office if we're going to get this economy back on track. >> pretty much nothing in the trump administration says turns out to be true. if they say the economy is in great shape, i would be very worried. >> reporter: it's important to note there is still plenty of good news on the economy. it's still growing and producing jobs and consumers are spending. politically for president trump, this is the whole ball game, and so any clouds on the horizon are worrisome for him and his campaign. >> no question about that. in the meantime, the president continues to push this curious idea he might want to buy on behalf of the united states, greenland, but that massive island clearly not for sale. >> reporter: that's right, as one of the new york headlines said. greenland to president trump, drop dead. it's not going to happen. he's not the first one to try it. president truman and eisenhower sought to buy greenland.
7:08 am
it's crucial strategically. it has a lot of important minerals up there, and it's for president trump, as he said, just another big real estate deal. george? >> terry moran, thanks very much. amy? george, now to those two new arrests raising concerns about mass shootings. a 20-year-old in ohio, and a 25-year-old in florida now both in custody, accused of plotting separate attacks. alex perez has the very latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey. good morning, amy. authorities are crediting a social media post with helping them track down that suspect in ohio. they said he had semiautomatic rifles and bullet proof armor ready to go. this morning, james reardon jr. seen grinning in his mug shot, arrested for allegedly threatening a mass shooting at this ohio jewish community center. police say the 20-year-old posted this disturbing video online. firing a semiautomatic weapon, sirens blaring in the background with the caption reading, police
7:09 am
identified the youngstown jewish family community shooter as local white nationalist. >> that kicked off an intense investigation. a very rapidly evolving investigation. >> reporter: police also claiming he attended the deadly 2017 charlottesville unite the right rally. he's seen here on national geographic. the fbi raiding his house where they said they found a large collection of semi-automatic andet proof armor., a gas mask he was taken into custody soon after on local harassment and aggravated menacing charges. his arrest coming the same day as this dramatic arrest in florida, recorded on bodycam video. >> do you have any weapons we need to know about? >> no. >> reporter: tristan wix of daytona beach, florida, taken into custody after he allegedly sent a series of text messages threatening a mass shooting. >> he talks about how he wants to die in his text messages and when he dies, he wants to kill
7:10 am
at least 100 people and have fun doing it. >> reporter: police say an ex-girlfriend alerted them to the texts. in one, the 25-year-old allegedly writing he wanted to, break a world record for longest confirmed kill ever. these two arrests are just the latest close calls in the wake of the deadly shootings in el paso and dayton. the fbi warning of possible copycat attacks. and reardon is being held on a $250,000 bond. he is scheduled to be arraigned in court later today. cecilia? >> okay, alex. thank you. overseas this morning, there are growing concerns about isis in afghanistan, and what the impending u.s. troop withdrawal from there will mean. it comes after a devastating attack at a wedding that killed more than 60 people, injuring nearly 200 others. the islamic state is claiming e u.s. diplomat negotiating ide with the taliban now says talks need to move faster to strike a deal, and end america's longest
7:11 am
war, now nearly 18 years long. and now turning to the massive pro-democracy demonstrations in hong kong, organizers say at least 1.7 million people came out in force on sunday as tensions there rise with china. ian pannell is on the ground there in hong kong with the very latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, cecilia. extraordinary scenes here as hundreds of thousands defied the torrential rains, threats from china, and police marching on the streets. we saw young and old, rich and poor, umbrellas that have long been a symbol of protests here, held high. organizers say there were over 1.5 million on the streets. if that's true, that's a quarter of the city's entire population. even more remarkable, it was entirely peaceful. no repeats of the violence we have seen. riot police who have attacked crowds before mostly stayed in their stations. also the chinese who released this ominous video over the weekend, never left their positions despite threats from beijing. >> ian, you have been on the
7:12 am
ground there all weekend right in the middle of it. what are these protesters telling you about how long they plan to keep going? >> reporter: cecilia, they're saying it's now or never, and that's because they have been here before, and it didn't work. what i'm hearing repeatedly is they won't stop until they demand for justice and democracy is met. this sets a real precedent. if it backs down, it sets a dangerous precedent, and president trump is now saying, it would be hard to do a trade deal. look at the skyline behind me. you have got bank of america right there, and the chinese people's liberation army almost next door. it's one of the world's leading financial centers and if those troops came out, it would be hard to continue business as usual for america, china, or indeed the global economy. cecilia? >> a lot on the line. thank you. we turn to new questions about the nfl's partnership with jay-z as colin kaepernick responds to jay-z's contention
7:13 am
that the nfl has moved past kneeling. eva pilgrim here with that. good morning. >> good morning, george. some calling him out for flip-flopping. once taking a stand against the nfl, and now striking a deal with them. >> reporter: former nfl quarterback colin kaepernick seeming to throw shade at the biggest name in hip-hop after jay-z's recent press conference with the nfl. >> i think we're past kneeling. i think it's time to go into actionable items. >> reporter: kaepernick who sparked controversy for taking a knee during the national anthem, hoping he says to draw attention to police brutality and racial injustice, pointing out players who continue to kneel in protest writing on instagram, they have never moved past the people and continue to put their beliefs into action. stay strong, brothers. jay-z's entertainment company rocnation winking a new deal making him the live music entertainment strategist, allowing him a role in producing and selecting acts for nfl

events, including this year's halftime show as well as contributing to the league's activism arm. >> colin's whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice, correct? so in that case, right, this is a success, right? this is the next thing. >> reporter: the hip-hop mogul was once one of the biggest names supporting the protest. just last year, jay-z boasted about not needing the nfl. ♪ i said no to the super bowl ♪ you need meo need you >> reporter: even reportedly tried to talk rapper travis scott out of performing at the championship earlier this year. ♪ >> so jay-z said he isn't telling people not to kneel if that's what they think is best. he says he's an action person, and going on he says, we hear you. what's next? >> that's the big question, right? he raised so many eyebrows with this announcement, but nobody
7:15 am
has a firm idea on what exactly he's going to do with this partnership. >> at this point, we have to wait and watch and see what jay-z plans. >> yep. thanks, eva. we turn now to that cruise ship rescue. two heroes jumping in to save a woman in a wheelchair when she fell into the water. they are now telling their story. kaylee hartung is here with more on this. good morning, kaylee. >> good morning, cecelia. quick action with these two men in the virgin islands. not a second to waste when a young girl was in trouble. sinking in the water, still strapped to her wheelchair. >> get closer. >> reporter: this morning we're hearing from both of the heros from this dramatic rescue off a cruise ship in st. a passenger in the wheelchair, watch as she grips a life ring to keep her from going underwater. >> there was a lot of commotion, and i see everybody looking over the dock, and i looked in the water and i see the young lady. >> reporter: randolph donavan waon his day off before he heard the s >> that moment, i didn't think twice. i just jumped in the water and
7:16 am
tried to get her out of the wheelchair because at the same time the wheelchair was sinking down. >> reporter: hamilton then jumping in to help. >> i was swinging to him, and i said, i can't swim to him. i can't go no more. >> once i saw that look in his can' go no more, i had to jump in. >> reporter: the two men being hailed as heroes. the commissioner for the u.s. virgin islands tourism saying, a life was saved. we're proud of you. well done. the girl was not injured by the ordeal. they provided her with a complimentary replacement wheelchair for the rest of her trip. >> thank goodness for those heroes. absolutely. >> thanks, kaylee. buckingham palace is responding to accusations involving prince andrew and jeffrey epstein as we see new video about the involvement with the accused sex offender.

7:32 am
involvement with epstein. linsey davis is here. good morning, linsey. >> good morning to you. prince andrew is reportedly appalled by jeffrey epstein's behavior, and he's being scrutinized after footage and recently unsealed documents connect the two. >> reporter: overnight a blistering statement from buckingham palace depending prince andrew after new video surfaced purportedly showing the prince at jeffrey epstein's manhattan mansion in 2010. the palace telling abc news, the duke of york has been appalled by recent reports of jeffrey epstein's alleged crimes. the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent. this video which has not been independently verified by abc news reportedly shows the duke of york at epstein's home in december of 2010, waving to an unknown young woman. at that point, epstein had already served time and registered as a sex offender in both florida and new york. the prince was reportedly
7:33 am
introduced to epstein through his long-term associate ghislaine maxwell. maxwell has never been charged, and denies any wrong doing. according to giuffre, this photo was taken of her in maxwell's london in 2001 when giuffre was just 17. according to deposition testimony from recently unsealed documents, giuffre says she was told to have sex with prince andrew and several other powerful men which the prince and the other men deny. last week the palace making a statement. andrew accompanying his mother to church on sunday. now the prince appears to be laying low, spotted last week in these photos obtained by "the sun" with ex-wife sarah ferguson stepping off a jet in spain. this after the investigation into epstein's death intensifies. the millionaire's attorneys are considering legal action after his apparent suicide. his lawyers telling abc news,
7:34 am
the defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of mr. epstein's death. this as a new report in "the new york times" details his final weeks behind bars. according to "the times," epstein reportedly paid his lawyers to visit him for up to 12 hours a day, where they would regularly empty the vending machines of drinks and snacks and he allegedly deposited money in other inmate's commissary accounts to avoid being preyed upon. "the times" suggests that in his final days that epstein had started to realize the limits of his ability to deploy his wealth and privilege in the legal system. investigations into epstein's death are already under way by the fbi, the bureau of prisons, the justice department's inspector general, and now his attorneys are saying they're doing an independent investigation of their own. buckingham palace released two statements, one saying that any suggestion that andrew ever engaged in sex with underage minors is categorically untrue.
7:35 am
george? >> let's bring in a dan abrams. any legal vulnerability for him at all? >> they're trying to get him to answer questions in a previous civil lawsuit, and it hadn't worked. you have to separate it out into criminal and civil. on the criminal side, if there was going to be any allegation about things that had happened, let's say, 17 or 18 years ago, probably the statute of limitations would have kicked in there. that's for anything on the state side. if you are looking at any federal crimes -- and this applies to him or anybody else, who they are looking at. on the federal side, the statute of limitations would not apply if they can show that somehow someone was involved in the trafficking of minors or enticing minors to cross state lines. if you can show sex trafficking, then the statute of limitations. then you have the possibility for federal crimes. as of today, no indication of that. >> that could be why epstein's
7:36 am
former friend ghislaine maxwell could be in jeopardy. we know an investigation is coming there. >> that's the big investigation here. that's what the feds are investigating. they are investigating basically, were there other people who were part of a conspiracy with epstein? was he not working alone as part of this? and they would be charged with very similar crimes as epstein was charged. that's the -- that's the real question now moving forward. >> the other question i have is i can't understand why epstein's -- they were epstein's attorneys. now they're attorneys for the estate. why are they pursuing this investigation of his death? >> epstein has died, right? i think all they're trying to do is sully up anybody else except for epstein. the jail did this wrong, and that wrong. they're going to be accurate. there are problems with the jail, but that doesn't change the fact that it seems all indications point to a suicide. i don't understand why, well, you know, we don't necessarily buy this. what are they suggesting? that he was murdered, and therefore what? the question at some point is going to be, what is their role now? they're fighting certain legal
7:37 am
fights about the non-prosecution agreement, and the response to them has been, wait a second. why are you guys weighing in? what is your relevance here anymore? jeffrey epstein has died. >> big question.n abrams, thank. cecilia? now to new video of nascar legend dale earnhardt jr. and his family escaping that plane. thankfully everyone made it out alive. now an investigation is under way. steve osunsami is there in griffin, georgia where officials, steve, they are poring over the wreckage this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, cecilia. this is what's left of dale earnhardt jr.'s plane. they are going to unload it and take it apart, investigators to try and figure out why exactly it slid off the runway. i want you to take a look at it now that we're on top of it. you can see what happened here. this is the fence the plane tore through, and right here this is what's left of a window. the heat was that intense. it melted the window, turned this plane into a crisp, and it is amazing when you look at
7:38 am
this, that the family was able to walk away from this alive. federal investigators put these burned up pieces of dale s planlao beit a l sws. these are e dramatic moments after the plan fami made their escape from the burning wreck. >> it came out of the airfield. it is on fire. >> reporter: incorrectly phone video obtained by our charlotte affiliate, you see the private jet on fire. then the door opens and a man pulls out a child who we now know is the former nascar driver's baby daughter. another man leaves followed by earnhardt's wife, and they run for cover, making it out alive. >> there's a baby. one, two, three, four, five. five people, and a dog. >> it was a harrowing experience for all of them. they are a walking miracle. >> reporter: the racing legend
7:39 am
who is now an on-air analyst decided to skip the race saturday night, but his presence was still felt by top names at the track. >> i'm glad he's okay. >> it takes your breath away. those are people that are friends and are, you know, family. >> reporter: investigators believe this plane bounced at least twice during landing and it came down hard on the right landing gear destroying it. federal investigators hope to have a preliminary report within a week. guys? >> wow. just incredible to see it up close. steve, thank you. >> wow, stunning images indeed. again, so happy everybody made it out okay. coming up next though, we have the brave 9-year-old girl who survived a shark attack. ived a shark attack. ♪ ♪ so kim, you going for our big drive safe & save discount? yup, using the app. i've been quite vigilant. sharon says step on it. the meeting's started. ok, write her back 'dear sharon, don't mess with my discount!' faster mommy, i gotta go to the bathroom.

8:18 am
proportions. >> what is it about vaping that's causing these illnesses? >> it's a great question, george. a common misconception is it's just harmless water vapor. that's not true. in addition to nicotine, these products emit nickel, tin and lady, harmful chemicals, and flavorings which can do damage to the lungs when they're inhaled and also ultra fine particles which are damaging to the heart and lungs. bottom line, anyone who is using these is placing themselves at risk, and we don't even know the medium and long-term health effects. >> so much risk, but you use the word epidemic. 1 in 4 teens have tried these. what can we do to bring this risk down? >> the most important thing is to just educate people. so parents and teens, teachers, everyone needs to be aware of what's going on, and, you know, teens who use these need to understand that they are placing themselves at risk for lifelong tobacco addiction, and potentially serious lung damage. we encourage all parents to talk
