7:03 am
face was bloodied. it was dark and terrifying, and that's when emergency workers at the station found her and started escorting people out of the car, george. >> do you know if there are people still trapped inside the station? >> not that i have seen, but we have seen people now loaded into ambulances and so they are being taken away from the scene. we're not able to tell, but the woman i was speaking to saidt devastation. she says there are likely people there just because of how many people there were to attend to. >> more than 100. thank you very much. >> we will turn now to corey fuderman. he was in one of the last cars on the train that plowed into the station. thankfully, you are not injured. can you tell us what you experienced, corey?
7:04 am
caucus, and that's about more than half of the train to get off the car to transfer to new york penn. we were approaching the station and the train did not seem to be slowing down, and the cars kind of -- everything just crashed and shook, so yeah. i mean, we know what happened. that's what happened. >> it crashed. was there anything unusual that was happening before you were entering the >> no. i mean, we were just going quicker than expected. we were not slowing. >> and you felt -- >> too much. >> and you felt you weren't slowing before you got to the station? >> yeah. >> and could you just describe what you were seeing as this was happening and the aftermath, corey? >> say that again? >> can you describe what you saw once the impact took place?
7:05 am
that was happening was someone dr dropped their wallet. nothing too bad happened in my car. when you got out, i immediately saw the roof caved in and the car was on top of the platform, and it was -- it was wires everywhere and total destruction inside of the, and the chaos. people were freaking out and crying and people's faces were bloody. something i have never seen before. >> i'm sure. i'm sure you haven't, and were you all by anybody? >> i was not hurt, and not injured, but, like, people were assisting anyone who was, but we were just kind of being funneled away from the scene and outside away so that medical personnel and first responders could get to the scene. >> well, corey, again, we're very grateful you were not injured and we appreciate you telling us your perspective of
7:06 am
thank you. you too. have a good day. >> thank you so much. >> we'll follow that all morning long. we return to the school shooting in south carolina. >> a parent's worst fear, and four people injured, and his father was shot and found dead before the rampage. steve osunsami is in south carolina with the details. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities say they are not sure what set the teenager off. he d here. he was homeschooled. they don't think he meant to target his victims. this morning a teacher and two young students are recovering from gunshot wounds after a teenager with a handgun came shooting at this playground during recess. >> did have a report of a third patient. >> reporter: 1:45 p.m. the kids at townville elementary in south carolina were near the end of the day. reports of an active shooter at the school lit up cell phones across town. one of their teachers, a woman outside was shot in her shoulder as she tried to rush the kids in.
7:07 am
another boy, 6-year-old jacob hall was shot in the leg and had to be airlifted to a hospital. his parents tell us he needed surgery, and is still there this morning. >> i think there were some students out on the recess area, and the shooting may have occurred there, and the teacher got the students in the classroom. >> reporter: police say that the unidentified young man now in their custody is just 14 years old. officers can be seen speaking to someone in the back of a cruiser and they say the hero of the story is firefighter jamie brock, who got there first a >> he is a proud member of the townville volunteer fire department and did nothing that any of the other volunteer firefighters wouldn't have done. >> reporter: two miles away they discover the body of his father 26-year-old jeffrey osborn in their home. police say he was shot dead. we watched as police towed away a truck from the crime scene. authorities tell us the teenager got into a black truck, drove to the school, rammed a fence, got
7:08 am
nightmare. >> obviously the worst. hopeful and prayers that everything was okay. it's not a phone call you ever want to get. >> reporter: here's how police say they discovered the father. they say the teenager called his grandparents before coming to the school here. the grand parnparents went to t home, discovered father, called 911. school is closed here for the rest of the week. there are grief counsellors who will be here for parents and students who need today and tomorrow. robin. >> and beyond, you're right about that, steve, tha now let's take a look at this, heavy rains and winds. that's tropical storm matthew hitting the caribbean hard right now. they've got a lot of people in the southeast watching and, ginger, where is matthew heading? >> matthew is headed west first, and then due north. i'll show you the path in just a moment. but at least one person is dead. that was in st. vincent crushed by a boulder in a landslide. you can see the turbulent ocean. the barbados, the caribbean doesn't always look like that. certainly doesn't look like this
7:09 am
this is 65 mile-per-hour max sustained winds at this point. it is moving west at about 16 miles per hour and has a lot of warm water to fuel this storm and as it's a tropical storm it looks like it'll become a hurricane as we start the weekend, go through sunday and then some upper level forcing will start to force it northward. the farther it goes east the better for us. a lot of computer models are taking it out in the ocean. that would be a great track if it goes west. we'll be talk about it midweek. george? >> thanks, ginger. the race for the white house and more fallout from that big debate. donald trump still claiming victory evens own campaign tell abc news he's to blame for what went wrong monday night. abc's tom llamas is at trump headquarters. here many manhattan. pretty extraordinary finger-pointing getting criticized by his own staff. >> reporter: george, this is a blame game like we have never seen with the trump campaign and it comes at a time that hillary clinton is launching a full frontal assault. she was campaigning with senator bernie sanders yesterday. michelle obama out by herself hitting trump hard and the
7:10 am
but now dealing with this debate fallout. this morning, trouble inside the trump campaign. finger-pointing at the highest levels about trump's rocky debate. in an explosive admission, a senior aide telling abc news, the lion's share of the blame rests with one person, donald trump. that aide saying, quote, trump's debate failures stem from more a lack of execution than preparation. and he left a lot of things on the table. he pulled his punches, lost his nerve. publicly trump has claimed victory citing unscientific polls. >> i had a great time and i know you say the polls weren't scientific, but every single poll that was taken, i won the debate and some of them by a lot. >> reporter: top aides disagree including about what went wrong. some argue he didn't prepare enough and that there were missed opportunities including not mentioning benghazi. trump himself, says he shod
7:11 am
come to bill clinton's past affairs. >> i was also holding back, i didn't want to do anything to embarrass her. >> reporter: but now trump is turning up the heat on clinton. bringing up that video outside the 9/11 memorial when clinton almost collapsed. >> you see all the days off that hillary takes? day off, day off, day off. all those day offs and then she can't even make it to her car. isn't it tough? >> reporter: first lady michelle obama taking on trump in the important battleground state of pennsyan >> the president just can't pop off or lash out irrationally. no. we need an adult in the white house. >> reporter: urging people to get out and vote for hillary clinton. >> who spent 11 hours testifying before a congressional committee. can i get an amen? hillary is tough. >> reporter: now, back to the debate prep for a moment.
7:12 am
prepping donald trump. aides say they'll bring governor chris christie to help out with the second debate. >> okay, tom, while i have you "newsweek" out a few minutes ago with a brand-new cover story talking about how donald trump and his companies broke the cuba embargo in 19 i -- 198 by funneling money through a consulting firm. pretty exclusive charge right there. what is the trump campaign saying about it? >> reporter: right now the trump campaign has no comment but that investigation alleges that the trump corporation reimbursed consultants to go into communist cuba and explore casino opportunities. the magazine claims that business undertaking by itself violated the embargo but the big contradiction here is that trump then and now says he would never do business with a castro regime. george. >> we'll see what they say later. let's bring in matthew dowd for more. i have to start with that quote in tom's piece. a candidate staff saying he lost his nerve during the debate. i've never seen anything like it. you've been inside the top levels of campaigns. take us inside their staff meeting this morning after something like that comes out. >> i'm sure there is a lot of
7:13 am
i think that donald trump -- obviously we've seen it transition from various campaign managers, now on their third set of leadership. to me what it looks like is somebody hasn't been able to give him the advice or him take the advice so what they're now trying to do is try to get him the advice through doing it externally and doing it publicly. i don't think it's going to help but that's the only explanation i can have for why they did that. >> how about this "newsweek" cover story right now? you saw hillary clinton try to put trump's business record on the docket on monday night. more charges her does this cut? >> i think the problem with this it's an accumulated weight so every time there's a story that goes to a problem that he's got in his business, it just weighs on the american public who then finally comes to the conclusion that says i can't trust this guy. i can't even trust his business background. the other part of the story, with the ramifications, this is about the cubans, right, and the cuban vote in florida is very important for him if he's going to carry florida. if they think that he was somehow cutting a deal with
7:14 am
>> meantime, you saw that quote from michelle obama last night. pretty fiery speech in pennsylvania. you had president obama out yesterday saying any vote that's not for hillary clinton is a wasted vote even if you're voting for gary johnson or jill stein. they have a direct case to millennials there. >> they had a concerted plan going into that debate and coming out of that debate. not only from the free press they got stories but surrogates hit the trail in the aftermath of that, and most popular surrogates. if you look at undecided voters in this race and partisans, the two most popular among undecided voters and partisans are president obama and michelle obama and they're now out and about. >> matthew, one more question, if you're donald trump and watching obamas on the trail, other people have influence speaking out for hillary how do you go head to head with that? or do you? >> i think it would be problematic for him to try to sort of scurry around and find surrogates of his own. i would practice it like judo, use their weight against them and basically say i'm here standing alone and that's all the establishment.
7:15 am
you want to get rid of the status quo which is them vote for me who's the singular leader. >> and once again, she never -- michelle obama never mentioned donald trump by name. >> she is, i have to say that, the best at surgically going through that and doing it in a way that you come across and you start nodding in the course of that, and you never hear donald trump's name, but you know exactly what she is talking about. >> oh, yeah. we move on to new concerns about hacking and the election. th are actively trying to break into multiple states voter databases. abc's senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, is in washington with these breaking new details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. abc news learned u.s. authorities suspected hackers affiliated with the russian government have tried to infiltrate the voter registration databases of at least 15 states and sources briefed on the investigation tell us at least four states actually had voter registration computer networks breached with hackers snooping around and possibly copying information on voters. robin.
7:16 am
right? >> reporter: it would give the hackers the names and addresses allowing them to steal identities potentially but the bigger concern going forward is the hackers might try to get in and change and voter rolls. thankfully sources say that hasn't happened yet. still all this makes authorities super uneasy, robin. >> that's understandable. pierre, thank you. >> a lot to be nervous about. now let's go new reaction from saudi arabia over president obama's veto of the 9/11 lawsuits bill. it clears families of victims to sue saudi arabia for the attacks. president obama says this could expose the united states to liabilities overseas, and they say they may scale back with counterterrorism efforts.
7:17 am
the zika virus and for tainted water in flint, michigan. more u.s. troops are headed to iraq to help reclaim the city of mosul from isis. the white house says the extra 615 troops will advise the iraqi military and will not serve in a combat role. look at this dramatic video in china of this many homes swept away. over a foot of rain has turned streets to rivers and dozens of people are unfortunately missing. if you thought things were heated between donald trump and hillary clinton, take a look at what happened in this debate in the former soviet republic of georgia. throwing a glass, and then punching the news anchor. trying to break it up.
7:18 am
before their election. robin is watching it like a boxing match. how about that news anchor trying to break it up? >> real camera presence. took it in the face. >> she got wet. water. >> got it.
7:19 am

7:32 am
this. the true crime documentary airing this week on netflix complete with fresh, and at times, chilling new interviews. >> if i'm guilty, it means that i am the ultimate figure to fear. >> reporter: knox this college student accused of murdering her college roommate, meredith kercher, in perugia, italy in 2007 was convicted, freed, convicted again, only to be found innocent o by italy's highest court last year. but a huge chunk of the public remains skeptical about her which the documentary feeds on. the film includes knox's former boyfriend and one-time co-defendant. >> i known her only for five days. >> reporter: and the man portrayed in some western media as the real villain, the prosecutor who expresses some of his own less than scientific theories. asking why was kercher covered in a blanket.
7:33 am
knox, branded foxy knoxy in headlines around the world. she's now a writer for a small newspaper in seattle. new interviews cast her as mysterious as ever. >> either i'm a psychopath in sheep's clothing or i am you. >> reporter: for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> and amanda knox joins us now. good to see you again. >> good to see you again. >> could we start with that last statement that you made? >> sure. >> it's so provocative, and that's the way you decided to portray yourself -- that's who you are in this documentary. explain a little bit more about. >> well, i think i'm trying to explain what it feels like to be wrongfully convicted. to either be this, this terrible monster or just to be a regular person who is vulnerable, and what i'm trying to convey is that a regular person like me, just a kid who was studying
7:34 am
be caught up in this nightmare where they are portrayed as something they are not. >> i can't help but think about the last time that you were sitting here, january 2014. you had -- the conviction had stood again, and then the following year, it's overturned again. just the emotional roller coaster, and many want to know, why now? why are you deciding with this documentary now? >> well, now my attention is turning towards the next person beca i'm fine, you know, i'm moving on with my life. i'm going back to graduate school. i'm redeveloping my relationships, i'm redeveloping my relationship with freedom. but there remains the fact that i'm in a unique position as an exonoree. once i am, i am always one. i can't go back to my life i had before neither can the other who are out there, and a lot of times their stories go overlooked and i think that it's
7:35 am
cases of wrongfully convicted people from the perspective of their humanity, and to really, you know, demand that we have objective looks at their cases, and the facts of their case as well as them as people as opposed to demonizing them the way that i was. >> and the facts of the case and that's what this documentary. will we learn anything new. there's some people, i don't have to tell you, some people will never be convinced that you are innocent and there are others who feel that you have been wronged. i mean there's like two camps here. is there anything new that's going to shed any light in this documentary? >> you know, what i really appreciate about this documentary is that they -- it's good journalism in the sense that they give you the facts of the case, the reliable facts of the case and they say, decide for yourself. and the other thing that they do is they ground the case and the criminal justice system and the
7:36 am
are a part of it, and so by showing who was a part of it, not just me, not just my co-defendant, but the prosecutor and the media, they're shedding more light on what happened than all the speculation that's been put out there combined. >> especially when you are going to see the prosecutor as he is portrayed in the documentary is different than people think. i know that your motivation is to help. you could have sold this for a great deal of money and put it up on the big screen. people that are involved in this documentary say you are not receiving a paycheck for this. that you want to help people. but when you think about meredith's family, do you think about how this is for them to relive it and to have the story out here again? >> oh, my gosh. it's -- for them, that's never going to end and that's the really sad part about this tragedy is that as soon as the prosecutor made it about, like, it has to be amanda, it has to be amanda, they took away the
7:37 am
and what the truth was about what happened to her. and, you know, she's been lost in all of that. and -- but that doesn't change the fact that we have also an obligation to everyone that could potentially be innocent to like, find out the truth for the sake of the victim and for the sake of them as well. >> your life now? >> my life now is -- i mean, i'm -- it's been a year since i've been exonerated and i'm like, redeveloping like i said, this relationship with the world where i'm not being hunted down and on the one hand i have -- like i'm writing, i'm with my family, i'm with my friends, i have great relationships and on the other hand, i also want to, like, continue to put forth my passion for these people. like i've healed because other
7:38 am
come to me, and they have this negative thing that happened to me put on them because their stories are important and i don't think we quite recognize that yet. >> and thank you for sharing your story and coming here. >> thank you. >> as you have over the years. wish you all the best. the new netflix documentary "amanda knox" is available tonight right after midnight. michael? >> all right, robin. that's fascinating. coming up on our big board, the new app that says it can help prevent sexual assault on but why some fear it could make the problem worse. e. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50% on most current national carrier rates. save money on your phone bill, invest it in your small business. wouldn't you love more customers? i would definitely love some new customers. sprint will help you add customers and cut your costs. switch your business to sprint and save 50% on most current verizon, at&t and t-mobile rates. don't let a 1% difference cost you twice as much.

7:40 am
time now for the big board. our team of insiders standing by live to talk about today's stories including t.j. holmes. we'll start with you, t.j. there's this brand-new app on college campuses called sasie. what is it? >> a sexual consent app. these have been around for years. this is what happens, and two people get hot and heated and one pulling out a phone, read this, initial here, here, let me take your photo. state your name for the record and sign here and now let's get
7:41 am
>> complete mood killer. the idea here, the creators say is you're creating a legal binding document of consent and intent. they put these things together, specifically for college campuses to combat what they say is the problem of sexual assault on campus. you eliminate any ambiguity. it's clear of your consent and intent and you are make a record of it. >> there is a lot of issues with apps like this. another one called good to go. that one shut down. there are a lot of concerns -- one is that i personally when i read it said, well, what it somebody is -- they say no. >> they change their mind. >> that is the biggest issue that people have. several issues that are obvious but that's the biggest one, what if you change your mind. you are giving essentially a potential rapist evidence to exonerate themselves later on because you give consent -- it gives you no way to go back and change your mind. also, these things are created here, what person -- people think it's ridiculous. in the heat of the moment, two
7:42 am
stop, say, let's read this contract and fill it out. that's another problem. >> they say it's not legally binding. >> the people that put it together say it is. we don't have a test case yet but it goes to a server that only police can access, a disciplinary board at a school or by subpoena. >> jen ashton, what do you think? >> i mean i think it's probably a good idea and well intentioned but let's talk about the fact the name sasie is almost a play on words to say yes and i don't think we need any more of this in the bed so probably more pr >> i think in theory it sounds good, but i just think execution may be lacking. >> they want to start the conversation. even if it's just not about the consent, it at least gets two people to talk about affirmative consent and what it means. >> absolutely. absolutely. thank you, t.j. dr. ashton, you stay right there. we'll talk about this. a new study that can explain why some of us age faster and why george does not age at all, people. researchers at ucla suggesting that regardless of a healthy
7:43 am
>> yeah. >> dr. ashton, what exactly is this study saying? >> first of all, in medical school, doctors -- we're trained to actually assess someone's appearance with respect to their age, because the thinking even in the past was that how someone appears externally may indicate what's going on internally with the aging process. now, this latest study found that while lifestyle, yes, absolutely, behaviors are important. it's actually what's going on in our genes on a cellular level that may actuallbe the good news, both represent targets for intervention whether with changes or with medication and, in fact, the fda just approved a trial to study a drug called metformin used in type 2 diabetics as a longevity drug. so you are going to be hearing a lot more about this in the future. >> we'll come back to you but want to move on to lucy danziger. i'm not sure if these stunt foods will help are the aging process or not.

good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning to you. a rough morning indeed for so many passengers in this area. there are emergency workers all over the place trying to get a handle of this. this is a very, very serious situation here in hoboken. one of the most popular train stops in all of new york and new jersey of course. we're talking about the 100 people who are injured. so many of them seriously, and some of them critically injured, and of course, who has died. we have spoken with a witness. take a listen to what he saw. >> gio, i know we are hearing from witnesses throughout the morning, and you talked with them. many people describing it as a shaking and the train wouldn't stop. there were no brakes and it came up onto platform as we see that
7:54 am
station. what were some of the witnesses telling you? >> reporter: they were saying that the train just slammed into this platform, and that's what we're worry abied about. did it hit many people? just waiting for the train. we know it was late, so we don't know what factored into this train slamming into the platform. when it did that, we're told that one of the columns actually collapsed and part of the roof inside that train station, also >> and we have heard reports throughout the morning there may be people still trapped as emergency crews and first responders rush to the scene almost immediately, just before 9:00 a.m. east coast time. any word on what's happening inside in terms of rescue or recovery efforts? >> we have seen emergency worker after emergency worker, amy, going in and out of this. they are trying to get there. many trucks are moving all over the place trying to get there to
7:55 am
injured were passengers and how many of the injured were just waiting for this train. as you can imagine, this is rush hour traffic. i was getting calls from people who said, i was going to get on that train, but i missed it by five minutes. this platform here is of course, the fifth busiest in new york -- sorry. new jersey right now. fifth busiest platform. as you can imagine, so many people were right there. we know that the first car was most seriously impacted. the other cars were actually able to walk out of the train. >> we heard from some of those. for folks at home, this is across the hudson river from new york city. here in hoboken, this is the last stop to make their trip into new york city each day. this is a huge commuter hub. the ntsb is on the scene now
7:56 am
what have eyewitnesss said that -- is there any indication what may have happened here? >> reporter: all they were saying is that it was going very fast, so amy, that's all we know right now, but one of the things that the ntsb will be looking at is maintenance, and of course, human factors. fatigue. you know, did that operator sleep enough? the track condition, and the train itself. many of them are older trains, so was properly maintained. so many factors could be responsible for this. >> all right, gio. thank you so much for that. we'll let you get to talking to people and see what's out there. in the meantime, we have someone who witnessed part of this. matt haledik was on the other side when it came up off the tracks onto the platform. you're joining us. set the scene for us and tell us what happened. what you saw.

opposite side, and the light rail side by the water, and as i was getting off the train, i had my headphones in, and i heard a woman yelling that there was an accident and the train had crashed and everything was blocked off. i wasn't sure what she was saying or what was going on at that point, and as i turned the corner to get into the station, it was chaotic, and there were people everywhere. you could see the train had gone through the station and you could see the roof and know, some of the structural part of the station that collapsed. there was water leaking and the wires were hanging. it was crazy. >> one person has been killed. more than 100 other injured. i can't imagine what that scene looked like. did you see some of the wounded? i know there were a lot of walking wounded. reports of people, others perhaps trapped as well. tell us what you saw. >> well, as i walked through the
7:58 am
to get to work, i saw some people who, you know, looked like they had been wounded in some way. i'm not sure if they were on the train or, you know, in the station or affected that way. but a lot of people were shaken up, and some were getting medical attention when i got outside. some people were on the ground, you know, getting medical attention, and that's when you really start to see influx of first responders, you know, therwe but then, you know, as i was getting out, there was a ton of, you know, police. ton of fire personnel and medical personnel, and they were, you know, just been an influx of first responders all morning. >> we are certainly glad you are okay. thank you so much for setting the scene for us, telling us what you saw this morning. of course, such an unfortunate situation. thank you so much, matt, and more than 100 people injured. we know that one person has been killed. that train coming into hoboken

8:04 am
whether the driver or operator had slept, and looking at the track condition and the train itself. but clearly a shocking situation. so many emergency workers still here, going in and out, trying to find people to make sure everyone that is okay, and earn e everyone is at least getting help. back to you. >> an active investigation under way there. more than 100 injured, and we'll have you updated throughout the day. in the meantime, we turn to politics. campaign insiders admitting that donald trump missed opportunities during monday's debate by failing to bring up key issues libenghazi. some say he did not prepare, and that's the news. back to you guys. as we mentioned, it's a national holiday today. it's national coffee day, and there are deals brewing out there to perk you. you.

8:12 am
8:13 am
8:14 am
w we welcome you back to "gma." our audience gearing up for some great fashion "deals & steals." first that parenting dilemma. these photos raising a big question. if you think someone is going too far disciplining a child in public, should you intervene? the mom who took these photos did and mara schiavocampo has her story. good morning, mara. >> reporter: good morning. that woman didn't just take pictures. she put them on social media and her post thousands of comments and shares. she says that girl was crying and begging her father to stop and when he wouldn't, she stepped in to force him. erika burch was shopping at her local walmart in texas when she saw this, a father appearing to pull his daughter's hair while he pushed the grocery cart. >> i said, you need to let her hair go now and he told me i needed to mind my own business. and i said right now that little girl is my business and you're going to let her hair go. >> reporter: after confronting
8:15 am
authorities, the mother of four posted this photo to facebook. shared more than 242,000 times with at least 24,000 comments and over 42,000 likes. >> i received over 900 private messages in my facebook. >> reporter: so many comments calling erika a hero saying, bless you for helping a child and glad you confronted him mind her own business. >> i don't care what they think. i know it's wrong and i don't regret doing it. >> reporter: ultimately the child was allowed to leave the store with her father and now the local police department has filed this report for possible injury to a child. child protective services joining the investigation. telling abc news that while investigations are confidential, it is typical that cps will meet with the family including all the children in the home and determine if the family could benefit from services such as
8:16 am
as for erika burch she said she would step in again. >> i'm not the president. i was just some, you know, somebody shopping in the grocery store. it's not okay to pull a child by the hair of their head. i don't care what they've done. >> very powerful pictures. burch says of the almost 900 private messages she received most were congratulating her for stepping in. as for that investigation, part of the reason officials say they let the girl go home with her father is because she didn't have any visible injuries. robin. >> martha, thank you. joining us ericka souter and dr. richard besser.a, thank you. joining us ericka souter and dr. richard bea, thank you. joining us ericka souter and dr. richard besser. thank you. let's get into this. all right. now, there is a distinct line and a difference between discipline and abuse. ericka, do you think this woman did the right thing. >> i do think she did the right thing. you are allowed to discipline your child. so if you see something happening i'd ask yourself does it seem like this child is being
8:17 am
that should be a barometer. for whether you feel comfortable to step in. but there are risks associated with that. now, the parent who's doing the hitting could turn their rage toward you so you kind of have to be prepared for the situation kind of turning into something bigger. >> rich, do you think it's okay to intervene? >> as a pediatrician the rules for me are different. i'm required by law if i think a child is being harmed to step in and report it. for the public there's no legal requirement but i think there's a moral requirement. he or she saw something going on in public that was w this child was being emotionally abused in public and so she stepped in. that was a brave thing to do but when you do that, you know, you want to speak up. you want to try to de-escalate so understand you're dealing with a parent who is really frustrated, so using a calm voice is important, but if you think the child is actually being harmed, and that doesn't work, dialing 911 is appropriate. >> we heard in mara's report a lot weighed in on this and it's
8:18 am
favor of the woman who stepped in, but there were some that said something like this, ericka. he was not beating -- referring to the father, he was not beating her or verbally abusing, erika burch needs to mind her own business. a lot of comments like that, as well. is there like a social taboo if it's not your child not to step in? >> seen a lot of cases on the other end where a parent lets their kids playout side in a yard and some neighbor or passer-by calls the police and saying they're any flecked. -- neglected. there is a moral barometer that. there is a moral barometer that. -- neglected. there is a moral barometer that. there is a moral barometer that. there is a moral barometer that. there is a moral barometer that you really -- can you live with the fact that if you see something terrible happening to a child and you walk away, is that going to stay with you. then you think about, you know, this is the way parents acting in public how are they dealing with that child at home so you have to decide on your own how to react. >> speaking about doing it in public, the child has -- what is a ramification for a child that's being dealt like that
8:19 am
>> yeah, i mean when you think about child abuse, there's the physical abuse that, you know, everyone understands what that is but there's also emotional abuse and shaming and humiliating in public is a form of emotional abuse. long-term, those children will have trust issues, and here you have the person they look to for security who is shaming them in public. long-term those children are -- long-term that's not a good thing and hopefully child services will give them the tools they need. >> we don't have much time. the top tip you coul >> stay calm. it's very hard to do but if you need to take ten seconds to count backwards and not react aggressively with anger, with violence, that's incredibly important and don't be afraid to ask for help. every parent around you has gone through it and all been pushed to the brink. just ask for help. >> can i just say you are glowing? >> thank you very much. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> yes. >> you got that glow. thank you both very much. dr. besser will be taking your questions on twitter. coming up what experts say kate and will's body language reveals about their relationship.
