4:01 am
with a high flying world record attempt. "early today" starts right now. good morning, everyone. i'm dara brown. breaking news. the ntsb has confirmed it recovered the black box from thursday's deadly crash in hoboken, new jersey. the train's conductor is cooperating with federal investigators. they want to know whether he was fatigued, mechanical failure or speed that led to the crash. a 34-year-old woman was killed and more than 100 people injured, some in serious condition. jay gray is live in hoboken, new jersey, with the latest. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, dara. that black box, a key discovery here. expected to provide some very important information in this investigation. look, most mornings, 15,000 commuters or more pouring through the hoboken station behind me. this morning, only a handful of people. the crews clearing away debris
4:02 am
and investigator s trying to figure out exactly what went wrong. in just minutes, the morning rush unravelled. >> i have heavy structural damage. i have people trapped on the train. major, major tragedy. >> reporter: train 1614 on the new jersey transit line sped into the hoboken station, slamming into and over the bumpers at the end of the track. >> it was just horrific. an explosion of concrete dust, electrical wires. >> reporter: the canopy above the terminal collapsed falling to the ground along with steel beams, bricks, and shattered glass. a 34-year-old was standing on the platform. the hoboken resident and mom was killed by falling debris. >> we heard people screaming in the first car. they were trapped. they couldn't get out. >> reporter: more than 100 on and off the train were injured, including the engineer, who is said to be cooperating with the national transportation safety board investigation into the crash. witnesses say the train never seemed to slow down.
4:03 am
ntsb agents hope to get data from the crash from the train's black box. >> from the event recorder, we hope to get information such as speed and braking. >> reporter: investigators have access to the locomotive, but to this point, structural damage to the station has kept them out of the rest of the train. agents hope to gain access to the rest of the cars later this afternoon. officials say they expect to be on site here for the next week to ten days. that's the latest live in hoboken. dara, back to you. >> thank you for that report. >> commuters are also waking up to safety concerns about their daily travels. the ntsb has been demanding an advanced braking system for at least 40 years. miguel almaguer reports. >> reporter: lessons learned. the amtrak derailment in philadelphia last year left eight dead and more than 200
4:04 am
injured. a train traveling at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. in california 25 lost their lives, 135 hurt when a commuter train slammed into a freight train in 2008. these just two of the 145 rail line accidents experts could have been prevented with positive train control or ptc. the advanced braking system is designed to automatically stop a train before certain accidents like those caused by speeding or ending in head-on collisions. but only 22% of trains currently have the advanced braking system. train travel is still among the safest way to commute, but there are more questions on how to make it safer sooner. miguel almaguer, los angeles. it has been a growing theme this election cycle for publications to break from tradition in their endorsements, and now a big one. for the first time in its history, u.s. today is taking a side saying donald trump is
4:05 am
unfit for the presidency writing he lacks the temperament and knowledge and honesty that america needs from its president. for the first time in its 143-year history, the detroit news is not endorsing a republican. writing, donald trump is unprincipled, unstable and quite possibly dangerous. he cannot be president. the paper is endorsing libertarian gary johnson instead. the trump campaign seems to be taking a strategy straight from the donald's mouth going after the clintons' marital troubles. they have obtained a talking points memo which tells trump surrogates how to bring up bill clinton's past. among other things, it instructs them to point out that hillary clinton and her husband work to destroy bill clinton's accusers and hillary clinton bullied and smeared women like paula jones, gennifer flowers and monica lewinsky. trump wasted no time on the trail. >> corruption and scandals. and impeachment for lying.
4:06 am
impeachment for lying. remember that? impeach. >> why would that reflect on hillary clinton? >> you'll have to figure that out. i think it's pretty simple to figure that out. >> can you expand on that? >> she said things about me that were totally inappropriate. i think i would have had the right to do things and say things if i wanted to say them, but i chose not to say them. >> in the next debate fair game? >> we're going to see what happens. >> it does come up in the next debate, your past marital history is also fair game. >> i guess they can do. but a lot different than his. that i can tell you. we have a situation where we have a president who was a disaster and he was ultimately impeached over it in a sense for lying. we'll see whether or not we discuss it. >> you're not worried about your past history at all? >> not at all. i have a very good history. >> hillary clinton was also asked about this while campaigning. >> he can run his campaign however he chooses.
4:07 am
that's up to him. i'm going to keep talking about the stakes in this election. so i'm not going to comment on how he runs his campaign. you'll be able to see we have two more debates. what he says and what i say. >> meanwhile the trump foundation may be in hot water. the "washington post" is reporting the foundation never obtained certificate in new york required for charities to solicit donations from the public. if true, they could order the charity to stop raising money immediately. on a different note, remember how gary johnson couldn't name any foreign leader he admires? he's still searching. yesterday johnson tweeted, it's been almost 24 hours and i still can't come up with a foreign leader i look up to. vice president joe biden was on "the tonight show" and told jimmy fallon that he has the election all figured out. >> i think she's going to win and we'll be in good hands. nobody is perfect.
4:08 am
everybody wants the ideal candidate. by the way, i learned how to become the ideal candidate. announce you're not running for president. >> today on the trail, hillary clinton has multiple events scheduled in florida. daughter chelsea will be campaigning in wisconsin and michigan. donald trump is in michigan. mike pence is in indiana. earlier today, world leaders converged in israel to pay their respects to one of that country's founding fathers. shimon peres died wednesday at the age of 93. his commitment to forging lasting peace in the middle east was praised by myglobe, leadingf some 6,000 admirers, family members and international dignitaries. among them, president obama who delivered a eulogy for the nobel peace prize laureate. >> i don't believe he was naive. he understood from hard earned
4:09 am
experience that true security comes through making peace with your neighbors. we won them all, he said of israel's wars. but we did not win the greatest victory that we aspire to. release from the need to win victories. >> former president bill clinton, who was seen yesterday solemnly standing at his casket, also paid tribute, mourning peres as an optimist and dreamer. >> he lived 93 years in a state of constant wonder. over the unbleelievable of all e rest of us to rise above our wounds, our resentments, our fears. >> hism pact working to bridge divides also marked by benjamin netten yahoo's handshake with mahmoud abbas.
4:10 am
the ceremony was closed after the casket was led to his grave site buried alongside two of israel's former prime ministers. >> just ahead, a case of buyer's remorse on capitol hill. but first, bill karins is here with the latest tropical threat. >> good morning. hurricane matthew rapidly intensifyin intensifying. now a category 2 storm with 100 miles per hour winds and the eye beginning to form. jamaica, cuba, areas of the bahamas, maybe the turks and caicos, all preparing for the possibility of a major hurricane. we still have our eyes on florida and the southeast coast of the u.s. right now, it would be a glancing blow, but that's still five isolated storm possible.
