[ cheering ] >> fans in downtown kansas city went nuts as the mets gave up five runs in the 12th inning. the final score in game five was 7-2. it is kansas city's first world series title since 1985. congratulations to them. jeff glor is here with the royals rally. jeff, good morning, what a game. >> norah, good morning. indeed, the royals were relentless and now redeemed. they won the world series in five games and became the first team in world series history to
7:04 am
win three games after trailing in the eighth inning or later. sunday night was the crowning achievement. >> that's in the air to left -- up against the wall. >> k.c.'s comeback kid helped score in the ninth inning double. and a daring dash for home to tie the score just minutes later. >> tie game! unbelievable base running by eric kazmir. >> reporter: then christian colon who had not batted all season singled home the winning run. >> colon delivers. >> thatta boy! let's go! >> reporter: the royals piled on the hits from there scoring four more bearing the mets 4-2. >> inside corner. the royals are the 2015 world

7:06 am
>> this really was a case of the royals winning rather than the mets losing in the end, wasn't it? >> well, they should have won last year but clearly they were the better team in the world series. that said, heartbreaking for the mets fans the way they gave away a few games. >> thank you, jeff. >> sure. this morning u.s. intelligence sources tell cbs news a missile or rocket-prop rocket-propelled grenade likely did not bring down the russian jetliner over egypt. they are not ruling out a bomb inside the plane. the disaster on saturday killed all 224 people on board. the airbus went down 23 minutes after takeoff from sharm el-sheikh. allen pizzey is here with more. >> reporter: the only possible explanation was, quote, physical or mechanical action. the first bodies to be recovered

have arrived in st. petersburg from where the victim's holiday trip began. family members will be providing dna samples and other means of identification at a crisis center set up close to what has become an impromptu memorial for victims. at least two dozen of whom were children. finding all the bodies and evidence of what happened is a painstaking task. the debris is scattered over an area covering nearly eight square miles. a child's body was found some five miles from the site of the main pieces of wreckage. the size of the debris field indicates a catastrophic event according to aviation experts. all signs prove that the structure of the plane disintegrated in the air at a high altitude said this transportation engineer. claims from an isis affiliation says they were in the area at the time. >> it is really hard to say
7:08 am
based on their claim what happened here. >> reporter: they will inspect the plane from france and ireland as well as representatives from airbus. the plane was given a clean bill of health earlier this year and the airline officials said there were no complaints about it before the flight. all of which is cold comfort to friends and relatives of victims who have been showing selfies and holiday photos e-mailed just before the plane took off on its way home. analysis of the black box recorders and the thorough recovery and examination of all the debris could take a month or more according to egyptian and other officials. norah? >> allen pizzey in cairo, thank you so much. this morning republicans who hated the last presidential debate are ready to make sure it doesn't happen again. they have a plan to take more control over future debates and there's been a shakeup at the republican national committee that set up last thursday's cnbc debate. major garrett is in washington with those changes. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the rnc pushed aside the lead

7:10 am
are interested in dissimilar nig semi/* disseminating the information as opposed to gotcha. you did this and, well, you defend yourself on that. >> reporter: as for defending, jeb bush after three mediocre debates has had to do plenty of it. >> i'm a grinder. when i see i'm not doing something well, then i reset and get better. >> reporter: bush tried unsuccessfully to get the better of allie turned rival marco rubio while attacking him for missing votes while campaigning. >> i think he's given up and that's the wrong thing to do. >> i do believe that jeb is convinced he needs to attack me to be more successful. >> reporter: back to the debates, the campaign said there's not enough time to incorporate all the desired changes into the november 10th debate on the fox business channel. there will, however, be time for longer answers, norah. 90 seconds instead of 60. >> all right. thank you, major. and john dickerson will monitor

7:13 am
severe bloody diarrhea, call your doctor. if you can't keep down food, call your doctor. if it's a mild illness, use oral rehydration, gatorade, soups, avoid high fatty foods. and importantly, don't take antibiotics because they can convert the illness if it's the type we think. it is a syndrome this happens in 5% to 10% of the cases and is a more serious complication and can result in kidney failure. >> right now they are saying the issue appears to be limited in the six restaurants in the two states. nonetheless, they have closed 43 other restaurants in the two states. do you think that this issue will grow, this problem will grow? >> i think health officials said, yes, we will expect to see more cases in the coming weeks and days. those who have the illnesses don't go to the doctor, they stay home. so we don't know if those are cases. or if they go, they don't get their stool tested. if they do get it tested, it will take several days for the lab result to be confirmed. >> how long to take to find out
7:14 am
what caused this? >> hopefully in the next several days to weeks. the cdc has investigated over several of the e. coli outbreaks. they have to do source traceback. we think it is in the food supply chain because it affected multiple restaurants. so we expect to see some answer relatively soon. >> so less in the food handling than in the food supply. >> exactly. although we can't say that for sure. and usually it's a mild illness, but it can be severe or life-threatening, especially for the very young or elderly. >> all right, thank you very much. investigators this morning are now trying to learn what led to a deadly shooting rampage in colorado springs on saturday that killed three bystanders. there was a candlelight vigil last night for the victims. residents left flowers to honor their lives. the gunman died in a police shoot-out and witnesses say he seemed to pick his victims randomly. one was a man on a bicycle, two women died on a porch. they were at a home for women

often in wyoming but they are not normally this large. a closer look this morning at a "60 minutes" investigation. heroin is being called america's biggest drug epidemic. heroin use in the past decade jumped more than 60%. users are men and women across all incomes. heroin-related overdoses nearly quadrupled. correspondent bill whitaker went to the heartland and met ohio families seeing the impact. >> reporter: how did you respond when your daughters told you they were using heroin? >> well, they first told me they were using the pills. and how i found out they were using heroin was i came home from work one day and made dinner and i was yelling for my youngest daughter to come for dinner and she didn't. i walked into her bedroom and her boyfriend was shooting her up. >> reporter: you saw this? >> >> i saw it. >> reporter: what do you do? >> dropped a plate of food. i dropped it. and i was hysterical. >> reporter: tracy's daughter jenna is 25 now.
7:34 am
she knows she's lucky to be alive. >> in my addiction, i had been to rehab 17 times. and i had been to jail seven or eight times. every time i went to jail i got out, went to rehab, came home and relapsed and did all over again. >> reporter: you overdosed as well? >> uh-huh. >> reporter: how many times? >> i only overdosed once. and i woke up in an ambulance. >> mike dewine is ohio's attorney general and he showed bill whitaker how heroin is gripping his states from towns to wealthy suburbs. you called this an he epidemic. >> the worst i've seen. i've been involved in law enforcement since 1970s. it's in every part of ohio and so prervasive. we used to think of drug epidemic on cities and the drug is going to the suburbs and also
7:35 am
they are in the rural areas. >> what is the lure? i mean, in other words, why so many are they doing this? heroin is a scary drug. >> it's a scary drug. i don't really know. what i can tell you is when i was a county prosecuting attorney in the 1970s, heroin was something that most people who were doing drugs wouldn't touch. i would talk to them and, you know, relatively small county you got to know people and you got to know the drug dealers because we would arrest them and you talk to them. say, hey, what do you do? they list a whole bunch of crazy stuff they were doing. i'd say, what about heroin? hey, i'm not crazy, dewine. crazy people do that. >> even the drug dealers say i won't touch that. >> i wouldn't do that and wouldn't put that needle in my arm. >> you say you cannot arrest your way out of this problem. what do you mean and what should you do? >> the drug cartels are doing a great job in marketing this. i think most people in law
7:36 am
enforcement today understand and tell me, and i totally agree with them, we can't arrest our way out of the problem. we want to do what we do in law enforcement. in ohio, we think we do a pretty good job and try to help local law enforcement. really we need to focus a lot more on prevention and treatment. >> jenna morrison, who we just saw got addicted to heroin and said her addiction started with pain pills legally described by a doctor. how many cases are people hooked on heroin first described opiates? >> i would three-fourths. we have made a major effort in ohio. governor kasich and i when we took office we made a major effort to deal with that part of the opiate problems. we have taken the licenses of 50 doctors from ohio and made some real progress in that area. the goal is to slow that down so they don't end up with heroin --
7:37 am
by the way, either one, they can kill you. they do kill people. >> i thought jenna's mother is a nurse and says in bill whitaker's piece, we didn't prescribe this many pain pills 20 years ago, that that has changed and we have to look at that. i thought that was a real warning sign for parents. >> i have seen it with my own family and grandkids where they go in for, you know, wisdom tooth or something and a whole bunch of pain meds are prescribed. the idea is not to take any. >> mike, three-quarters of a billion pain pills were pretty bad -- prescribed in ohio alone. that is 65 pills for every woman, man, and child. that seems like a huge problem. >> i think the one mom last night made a point very, very good point. that the pendulum was too far the other way where, you know, we weren't really treating it as a society, treating people's pain. it flipped clear over here. we have to bring it back it to
7:38 am
here. >> people say where was the outrage when it was a street drug and only limited to a poor community or minority community and now people outraged saying we have to do something about it. do you think that was true and what do you say about that? >> you're absolutely correct. in the '60s and '70s when i was a prosecutor, we looked at society and said those -- you know, those are just those people over there. they didn't think they could be us. whatever "us" was. it was somebody else in another city. and it couldn't be -- now, you know, this epidemic cuts across every kind of line, geographical but also by income. so anyone who is watching this or watched last night's "60 minutes" piece, which i thought was a great piece, is going to do a lot of good. anybody watching that, you know, it could be your child, it could your grandkid, it could be in your community. if you don't think you have a heroin problem, you're probably wrong. >> 23 people die of an overdose every week in ohio. >> that is probably a low figure. we think it's probably higher than that actually. >> thank you.
7:39 am
>> and all families that are shattered on top of that. >> thank you. >> very important information this morning. thank you. a ride in an uber car takes a very dangerous turn. the dashboard camera shows awe allison janney will be in studio 57. you'll want to see that. we will be right back.
