7:03 am
cheers in the capital this morning after an incredible rescue. crews pulled a teenager out of the rubble. he had been trapped for five days. >> our cameras were first on the scene this morning and seth doane watched this dramatic rescue. he's with us from kathmandu. seth, good morning. >> good morning. as you drive around kathmandu you see search and rescue teams across the city and as the number of days go up since the earthquake you begin to wonder how they don't lose hope. well, today we found out why they keep searching. it was controlled chaos. rescue teams from america, nepal and around the world responded to the sound of a voice. we waited through the long operation and then this. wearing a yankees t-shirt, the teenager named by police as temba lama. he is finally free 120 hours after this earthquake. this is what the
7:04 am
search-and-rescuers had been hoping for. just a few hours earlier, we were alongside andrew olivera, an 18-year veteran of the los angeles county fire department. he's part of an elite u.s. aid disaster assistance response team. they were using dogs to try to the detective earthquake victims who might still be alive at a nearby site. is there really a chance that someone is still alive under this? >> well, you know what until the person is found and we can confirm that they are not we will give it every shot and we are hoping that they are. . >> reporter: moments later they'll get their shot when a voice was heard underneath a collapsed hotel not far away. >> i'm trying to get a general area where they heard the voices. >> reporter: they had to bring in heavy tools to pry him out. as they bring in stretchers and medical equipment, the pace here is certainly getting more frantic and the crowd gathered watching is getting bigger. finally they freed the boy, rushing him to an ambulance.
7:05 am
the crowd burst into applause. and this is just the latest in a string of remarkable rescues. one of those was that very young baby boy who was found miraculously alive after being stuck for 22 hours under the rubble. we asked rescuers today how this teenager survived. they said it's something they refer to as entombment. imagine it almost like a box that's strong enough, an area this teenager was able to get inside as that building collapsed around him. incredible. >> it is incredible. seth, you took us there. thank you so much. >> great reporting. really great reporting. >> the idea of going without water and food for that long not knowing how long you'll have to live. >> just hoping -- not giving up. >> not giving up. thank you, seth that was great. protests over the death of freddie gray are spreading from baltimore to other cities. demonstrations were large but mostly peaceful in baltimore

7:08 am
planned across the country today. norah? >> vlad, thank you. baltimore streets were quiet overnight as a city wide curfew remains in effect. a "washington post" story gives new insight into what may have been happened to freddie gray. the newspaper quotes a prisoner inside the same police van as gray. he reportedly said that gray was banging against the walls like he was trying to hurt himself. jeff pegues continues our coverage from baltimore. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. baltimore is not back to normal this morning but there are signs that it is getting there. take a look across the street here. police here yesterday, they were dressed in riot gear. this morning they are not. early this morning, police in riot gear massed along the same blocks that saw rioting and looting on monday. community leaders and police managed for the most part to clear the streets. >> go home. >> reporter: baltimore congressman elijah cultmmings was there again urging the crowd to stay focused on what he believes is the issue.
7:09 am
>> the relationship between the african-american community and the police i believe is the civil rights issue of this generation right here. >> reporter: there was a larger peaceful demonstration earlier in the day. crowds of mostly students moved from baltimore's penn station to city hall demanding answers about what happened to freddie gray. >> we still don't know why freddie gray was arrested. >> reporter: on april 12 the 25-year-old gray was seemingly unable to walk on his tone a police van. the incident has led to protests and riots. more than 2000 national guard members are patrolling the 80 square miles of baltimore. private first class dana williams says they are her streets, too. >> it's a little heartbreaking because that's my community but i know i have that a duty to do so i plan on doing my duty. >> reporter: the baltimore police investigation into gray's death is expected to be turned
7:10 am
over to the state's attorney's office tomorrow both agencies are conducting separate investigations and it's still not clear when the results will be made public. charlie? >> jeff thanks. with us from baltimore is mayor stephanie rawlings-blake. mayor, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> can you give us an assessment of where baltimore is this morning at this moment? >> this morning, this is the morning after the second day of our city wide curfew and i'm pleased that overnight we had relative calm very few incidents. what you saw is more reflective of the true story of baltimore. you saw community leaders, you saw elected officials, but working together to bring the peace. last night we saw gang members on the corners trying to encourage peace and getting people to go home. we've had a very dark time in
7:11 am
our city and there's a lot of pain here but there's a resiliency that is characteristically baltimore. >> reporter: mayor why are there still no answers about what happened to freddie gray? and do you support releasing the police report when it's complete to the entire public? >> so the -- this is the thing. we need to make sure there's justice for freddie gray and for his family. and when you talk to his family his family understands very well that in order to get justice, not just to seek it not just to have the optics of justice but to be able to seek it you have to protect the process. that's what we've been trying to talk about community leaders, clergy leaders, the gray family. we have to protect the process. yes, they want answers but they want answers in a way that will best protect their ability to get justice for freddie gray.
7:12 am
that's my focus. >> but mayor, why not? you talked about a city? pain. there's questions about police tactics all across the country. why not have transparency? >> well i have to reject that premise. the pain you saw, yes, it's about feg butreddie gray but it's about so much more. if it were just about freddie gray on the day that his family begged the city for peace so she could mourn, you would haven't seen what you saw on monday. it's about larger issues and nose are those issues that we're working on. my prayer for my city and for cities across our country is that during this time of unrest and when it's very clear people are in a lot of pain we find a way to communicate with each other so we're on the same page. we can't want justice for freddie gray or any freddie gray across this country and not at the same time be fighting for the process to move forward.
7:13 am
>> mayor, it's been a rough week for you personally it's been a rough week for the city. if you had any do-overs what would it be? >> that's a good question and, you know, if you're talking about operationally, every incident we've had and i've been mayor during many an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, super bowl parades that had almost a million people here that could have gone any which way. we've done it all and i feel comfortable with my track record for dealing with that level of crisis. >> let me phrase it another way. you were criticized for calling the protesters thugs. a lot of people look at these people and say, look these are people in pain they're striking out because they don't have any options. do you regret using that word. i. >> i regret it and i've apologized several times. in the heat of this crisis i let my anger overcome me.
7:14 am
i've apologized multiple times not just because i used the word but because it's forced a conversation about a word instead of the pain many people are feeling across our city. >> should you have called in the national guard earlier? >> i didn't think anyone gains from trying to politicize this. i'm from baltimorement i grew up here, my parents grew up here i'm raising my daughter here i love this city and when you see your city burning you will do anything in your power to bring the resources necessary to bring healing and to fix the problem. so as soon as it was clear that we needed the national guard, i made that call without hesitation and equivocation. period. >> mayor stephanie rawlings-blake, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. this week's violence in baltimore led to one of the most unusual sporting events in history. we'll take you inside camden yards and show you the first regular-season baseball games where in this case the fans were
7:15 am
banned. that's just ahead. this morning, a jury will hear more graphic testimony about the carnage james holmes unleashed inside a colorado movie theater. survivors and first responders are describing the attack that killed is 12 people and wounded 70. holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. mark strassmann is at the courthouse in centennial colorado, mark good morning. >> reporter: good morning. eventually the focus of this trial will shift to whether james holmes was an insane killer. but for now everyday we're hearing more personal, dramatic accounts from people who found themselves trapped inside the theater. >> i've heard people saying "i'm getting shot i've been hit." >> reporter: christina went to the movie with a group of co-workers. suddenly the iraqi war vet heard familiar sounds -- gunshots inside the theater. >> i felt my leg -- i saw blood so i just continued falling to the ground. >> reporter: her co-worker alex
7:16 am
outing. it was his 27th birthday. he tweeted from inside theater 9 "it's going to be the best birthday ever." >> i noticed he had a blood spot on his head. >> reporter: sullivan's family learned he was found face down in the theater. he was dead. >> i can see him with the gun held up to his chest. >> reporter: navy vet joshua hole in lann was trying to shield a friend when he was shot. bullets tore into his calf and arm. he collapsed. >> my thought process was that he was searching for other people and that he was going to start going row by row. >> reporter: first responders walked into chaos. dozens of people wounded or dead. people screaming or pleading for help. >> the phrase was "if they've got a pulse, get them out of here". >> reporter: once the wounded got out, the theater was still a homicide scene with bodies lying everywhere. police remembered for hours cell phones left behind started to
7:17 am
ring and ring. >> incredibly painful for families to relive all of that. thank you, mark. syria's government is accused of another chemical warfare attack on its own people. activists in idlib province say helicopters dropped at least two bombs filled with chlorine one group claims 12 people suffocated. so far the reports are unconfirmed. syria handed over a stash of chemical weapons two years ago but chlorine was not included. norad's commandant says no one could have shot down a gyrocopter that landed outside the united states capitol. but the capitol police chief says officers could have opened fire and did not because of the risk to tourists. a florida mailman flew the aircraft over the national mall two weeks ago without being stopped. members of the house oversight committee were unhappy with the answers they got at a hearing on wednesday. wednesday. >> it starts with a simple question of who's in charge.
7:18 am
you've got a dude in a gyrocopter 100 feet in the air crossing 30 plus miles of restricted airspace. >> the head of the faa said radar could not distinguish the gyrocopter from other objects like a bird or kite. senator bernie sanders is hillary clinton's first challenger for the democratic presidential nomination. the vermont independent calls himself a democratic socialist. he says both parties are dominated by big money interests. but sanders tells nancy cordes a third-party campaign was never an option. >> the reality is that if you want to engage in debates and mobilize people, it's hard to do it outside the two-party system. this morning, some waters off the hawaiian island of maui are off limits after a deadly shark attack yesterday. the victim is a 65-year-old woman who was snorkeling.
7:19 am
she was found floating face down 200 yards from the shore, severe injuries to her torso suggest she was bitten by a shark. this is the third deadly shark attack in that part of maui in two years. a massive u.s. military exercise triggers conspiracy theories about martial law. why that prompted one governor to call out >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by

now, there's a phrase in your story on the eighth there where an unnamed source says we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom prop but it comes from gerson. it's a political line directly tied to the white house. you said the information doesn't come from them. >> jon, were we not supposed to report what it was that had the intelligence community so nervous about saddam? >> no, you were supposed to keep it in the context that this administration was very clearly pushing a narrative and by losing sight of that context albuquerque i not reporting -- >> i think we did. >> i wholeheartedly disagree with you. >> well, that's what makes journalism. >> it's actually not what makes
7:31 am
journalism, so let's continue. >> let's continue. >> you know, it's interesting. we had yesterday john oliver coming on yesterday telling us how much he admired jon stewart. part of the reason is because when jon stewart when he is passionate on an issue will turn not comedy but dialogue. >> and he does it very well. and i think they won't be going to lunch any time soon but it gives you another indication on how jon stewart is going to be missed. >> absolutely. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, conspiracy theories about an army training exercise. some think it's a condition for martial law. find out what the texas major is doing about that. plus the fda and how you can get rid of double chins. that's ahead.

7:33 am
him. >> i talked to morgan freeman last night. he can't fly anymore because he hurt his hand. >> that's tough too. the "washington post" says they're fueling questions about exercises. there have been intense speculations since it was brought up in march. manuel bojorquez shows us the growing hostility. good morning. >> good morning. they say the operation is needed to keep emerging threats from around the world but there's enough paranoia that they've ordered the texas state guard to keep a close eye on the exercises. >> this is in preparation for the financial collapse and maybe even obama not leaving office. i'm telling you this is so huge. >> reporter: online there is question that he's masking something insidious. >> one thing is for sure.
7:34 am
troops will be ready and trained to take over your town when it happens. >> they're prepared to issue martial law and even maybe roundups. this is not a joke. it's the real deal. >> reporter: the army tells cbs news i has nothing do with martial law that many of the exercises will take place in remote areas away from the public, but after this map of the training exercises surfaced which identified texas, utah and southern california as hostile territory, the conspiracy theory took off. >> my friends, this is a declaration of war on united states soil. this is in our backyard. >> even plumbing repairs at several walmart stores drew suspicion. >> walmart closing stores across the nation. most of them if not all are in the jade helm exercise facility. >> jade helm is truly a training exercise to prepare special army operations overseas.

7:36 am
gayle? >> thank you manny. there's a new way to do away with double chins. the fda. >> a lot of people are going to pay attention to what you have to say. how does it work. >> it targets the double chin or as a good friend tells me the enemy of a good selfie. the drug itself is called kai bella. it's a synthetic form of a compound naturally found in our intestine. in our intestine it helps our bodies to break down fat in food. in this case it's being injected into the chin to break down fat in that area. it dissolving the cell membrane around fat cells causing them to burst and destroying them in the process. >> what happens to them then? >> your body basically absorbs them and metabolizes them.
7:37 am
i do have to say it's a big commitment. it's done over a course of six months. a sears of injections. sometimes up to 50 times. it's not for the faint of heart. >> it sounds like it hurts. >> double chin is not my issue. i'm worried more about a muffin top and cottage cheese thighs. >> we'll get to that. you know actually no. so if it sounds too good to be true, the idea of a safe fda approved fat melting procedure in some ways it is too good to be true. it's only recommended for areas of the chin. we don't know whether it's safe. it depends whether it's permanent. i spoke with a doctor yesterday who helped conduct the clinical trials. he said unlyle botox and res lynn that wears off after times, this actually destroys cells, so for his patients two years later, the results were just the
7:38 am
same. it seems permanent. >> how much will it cost? >> the company hasn't set a price but insurance won't cover it. >> but side effects, you may not be able to swallow. >> redness, swelling and other side effects. >> okay. holly phillips. what's wrong with a double chin. thank you. some of the drama that happens off the field. dean reynolds is in chicago. dean? >> reporter: here in chicago the stage is set for fans everywhere hoping for a fresh start. >> that's coming up next. and if you're heading off to work and you've got errands to do somebody told yes yesterday, gayle, i have yoga class, you can set your dvr so you can watch us any time on "cbs this morning" any time you like. we'll be right back. hey! have an awesome vacation everyone! thank you so much! you're so sweet. yummy!

. new developments this morning in a celebrity legal battle that could impact would-be parents nationwide. actress sophia vergara's fiancee wrote an op-ed in the "new york times," demanding that their frozen embryos not be destroyed or sit in a freezer forever. sophia says she will keep them frozen indefinitely because she does not want to have a child with him. rikki klieman is with us. >> the agreement was indeed a contract and the contract was very clear. they agreed at the time of in
8:16 am
vitro fertilization that the embryos would remain where they are, they could be destroyed if one of them died meaning they o would be thawed and both parties must agree as to what to do with the embryos. one person cannot decide. >> nick lobe signed that consent that said the baby could only be brought to life if both parents signed that consent form. >> we have to understand what he said in the complaint, he's a sophisticated man who says i was coerced, she abused me she was always abusing me and she made me do it because i was under duress and i did not want to suffer more abuse. well that may prove to be a bit too much. >> you're saying sanctity of contracts, case closed. >> well no not so simple. you know how i feel about contracts. i think that we exist in the world under law and society by
8:17 am
virtue of contract. everything we do is on the basis of agreement. however, there are ten states that have looked at in vitro fertilization and these kinds of, quote unquote, custody battles over what most states will say is the property called embryo and what they have found is this -- eight of them have said that basically the contract controls the agreement controls. if it's written, if it's signed or even if there's a verbal agreement. some have said we have to balance these things and -- >> isn't it only in the other two cases the women had cancer and so the judges said well, since they don't have a chance probably since they've gone through chemotherapy, they let them have the embryos. >> yes. and that was the woman remember. one of the things about public policy is do we want to force a woman to become a mother of a child that she does not want with a person that she does not want it with? >> but he's saying i want these these two daughters, she doesn't have to assume any financial or
8:18 am
parental responsibility. he says at the time we agreed and now he wants them. >> once he has signed this agreement, this consent form where they have agreed that both of them need to decide he probably doesn't have a right. however, it is a case of first impression in california, this will be the 11th state and we want to know what people's rights are in this situation. are embryos property or are they really people? >> thank you. >> it's interesting to watch. >> it really is. >> whether it's coffee or meat ball, the way to get your food could be in for a i'd rooid intoride into the future thanks to smartphones. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." future. that's straight ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪
