well. how soon do you think you'll get most of the folks out there out of harm's way? >> well, we just keep going as the situations dictate. that's the trick with water and that's the trick with storms. the good news is, we're able to move assets around and try to pre-position. we can see the direction the storm's going. so we have an idea of where it will next go. in the meantime, the waters are shifting. the rivers are rising. we're just reacting to that. it's a living, changing, moving thing we're reacting to. we'll keep going to where we need to be. as close as -- staying as close to the parishes and answering the calls of the help of the people. >> and not only that, you talk about the water conditions. you're talking about power outages in different areas. road closings as well. how difficult has this made your job of saving lives? >> well, in -- access is always the key. and water cuts off access, so, sure, it becomes a hindrance for us, as well. we have to find workarounds and different passages to get to

7:14 am

7:16 am
it was a rough week on the trail for donald trump. he's slumping in the polls in some key states. and now, there's a scathing "new york times" article that says he's resistant to advice from his advisers. that he's quote, beyond coaching. in private, he's sullen and erratic. how damaging is this? >> this is pretty serious. trump himself seems conflicted about what is best for the campaign. his free-wheeling style from the primaries where he was so successful? or the plan from his campaign managers to rein it in? that piece in "the new york times" this morning suggests that the campaign is losing the battle. with unnamed advisers saying he's nearly out of time to right his campaign. trump responded on twitter calling the story fiction. but it's taking its toll with voters with trump down in key swing states, as you said, like virginia and colorado. and running the risk of reaching a point of no return. >> and now blaming the media, the crooked media. okay, so, more hacking problems

you gave it your all. you even broke one of your nails at the finish. >> yeah, to have the race come down that close, 0.05 is insane. so, you know, it comes back to all the training that we have done. all the support we have received. i have great sponsors, like bmw who give financial support, which goes way beyond writing a check. they've actually created technology that helps my underwaters. for 0.05 to decide the gold is crazy. but i was lucky to be able to get my hand on the wall first. there's a lot of training and hard work that goes into that. >> you're a newlywed. i know after that win, it was an emotional moment for you and your family. it was the first time you said you have seen or touched them in about a month. how emotional was that for you? >> yeah, that was a dream come true to give them a hug after putting a gold medal around my neck. the emotions were there.
