12:00 pm
after disturbing discovering at apple's cupertino campus this weekend. bart knows what caused the car to rund into a sand barrier last week that plus, hundreds of teachers walk off the job in san francisco. good afternoon. i am gasia mikaelian. >> and i am mike mibach. we are following developing news out of super where santa clara county deputies are investigating the death at apple's headquarters. >> a body was found inside a conference room this morning. jesse gary from the apple campus. >> reporter: an update from the sheriff's office. they tell us there are no threats to the general public or to apple employees and that they are not looking for a suspect in this case or anybody armed with guan or anything like. this they say there is no threat to the public. let's take a look at some of the video that we have. we have seen sheriff's office cars here all morning long. suvs, cars, et cetera, parked out in front of the main building here on infinite loop.
12:01 pm
word spread quickly. around 8:30 this morning a body of a man found inside a conference room on this 32-acre campus like setting. the campus is open for business as normal and employees can come and go freely, but they referred all questions about this to the sheriff's department. a few minutes ago the sheriff's department updated me. >> when they responded to the campus, they found one individual, male, down. determined he was deceased. through further investigation they determined that there was no other individuals involved and they believe it was an isolated incident and that there was nobody else on campus or in the public that are at risk. >> reporter: and the coroner is headed here right now to begin the investigation and give us a cause of death for this. i am also told that apple employees, some of them are being interviewed as part of this case. guys. >> jesse, any word on the man who was found? was he an employee of apple?
12:02 pm
>> reporter: we are not told. i guess we are going out on a little bit and saying he is an employee because how else would he get on to the campus? if you know anyone who works here, security is extremely tight. they have security everywhere. even out here off apple property. there is security watching and watching the media and talking to the media. so it's very likely that this person works for apple or contracted for apple. something like that. but as far as a second person, there were some reports going around social media of a second person. officials say that is not true. just the one person. the deceased. we are not going to go into how the body was found because that's not confirmed by the sheriff's department. but he was found inside one of the conference rooms and now the coroner is headed here to do the investigation on the cause of death.
12:03 pm
a lockdown situation at three pacific schools has been lifted. a shooting took place near the campus of omega this morning. police gave the all-year ear -- all-clear and the lockdowns are lifted. we know what caused bart's train to flynn a sand barrier -- train to run into a sand barrier last week. >> what you have learned. >> reporter: bart says it knows what happens because it was able to re-create the problem. that guarantees it won't happen again. ten days ago the new bart car loaded with sandbags and weighing in at 55 tons ran into a safety barrier on a bart test track. at that time driving training was going on but the car was hooked up to test equipment to record how its systems were
12:04 pm
functioning. as the trainees applied the brakes at low speed, the brake system failed and the car hit the safety barrier with no damage to the car, according to bart. it turns out that that wire connecting the test equipment to the bart car shorted out because it was pinched by a cabinet door at the connection point. that's exactly what happened. >> so the car did not fail. the operators did not do anything wrong. in fact, they did everything that they could to apply the brakes and stop the vehicle. >> we are going to go back into testing and resume our normal testing. the car is ready to go. we just need to implement a few precautions and we will continue. >> reporter: now, as mentioned, bart says the car was undamaged. it says it's on track to put the first ten-car train into actual passenger service by the end of this year. reporting live, ktvu fox 2
12:05 pm
news. if you are with us for "the 9", there were grey clouds, rain on the window behind us. rain is definitely back in the bay area. >> and our meteorologist mart tamayo has been tracking it. he joins us onset. what's going on? welcome back, first of all. >> thank you very much. took a few days off. enjoyed the bay area. nice place to take a vacation. we had some drain drops this morning. we have some breaks in the clouds and gusty winds. we could be talking about thunderstorms late they are afternoon. talk a look at the satellite and radar. you can see the action into northern california and showers aparts of the bay area. the radar showing you some lightning strikes. actually, we are tracking them in eastern contra costa county. thunderstorms to the south of stockton. also to the east of discovery bay. moving the map to the south, coverage exiting eastern alameda county. still as the afternoon wears on, in fact here is the radar loop, as the afternoon wears on we will track some activity to
12:06 pm
the north. with that the sunshine could help de-stabilize the atmosphere and there is a chance we could have a few scattered thunderstorms develop. best chances towards napa county, solano county, contra costa county as well. hayward .21. san francisco .13-inches of rain. so the possibility of a few thunderstorms this afternoon. we will talk more about that in a few minutes and big changes for this weekend. we will have more on that coming up in the full forecast. >> thank you. mark. now to san francisco where students are city college are told not to go to class today. all classes are can shelled as the faculty is holding a one- day strike. >> alex savidge joining us live at one of the nine college campuses with the labor dispute. >> reporter: yeah, teachers at city college of san francisco
12:07 pm
say they deserve a praise because of how expensive it's become to live here in the city right. now this is the scene outside of the civic center campus on market street. can you see you have hundreds of people taking part in a picket line, a rally here outside of this campus. this involves faculty members, other employees of the city college of san francisco system, and also students. we are seeing many students out here as well. this is video here. this is part of on ongoing one- day strike by hundreds of teachers, counselors and librarians picketing outside of all nine campuses across the city. employees say this is all meant to stop proposed cuts to classes at city college which serves many low-income students here in san francisco. teachers are calling for a better salary. they say they are making 3.5% less than they were almost a decade ago. on the other side of things, the city college administrators say they don't have the budget to give teachers the raises
12:08 pm
they want because enrollment has dropped by 20,000 students over the past two years. >> we all know san francisco has become more and more expensive, right? we all feel that. and the faculty cares deeply about our students. we want to serve the working class and middle-class people of the city who might want to come back and get job skills. >> there is a reserve fund. we are looking at using some of that money to supplement our offer that is the bonuses that we are looking at giving. a small amount of it. the problem is, is we cannot give ongoing obligations out of that money because it is one- time money. >> reporter: now, one of the main reasons enrollment has fallen so dramatically at city college of san francisco is because four years ago the school was in danger of losing its accreditation. during the accreditation crisis
12:09 pm
that happened here, faculty agreed to have pay cuts. so what they're asking for now is to have their pay cuts restored, and also to have a 4% raise over three years. the school's chancellor says they are willing to give teachers a 7% raise over the next two years in addition to some one-time bonuses. we should point out this is just a one-day strike. tomorrow teachers and other employees at city college of san francisco will be back on campus. simply a one-day strike. they are hoping to be back at the bargaining table with administrators to try to work out a deal here in this case. >> alex, thank you. all lanes of interstate 580 are back open after being shut down for hours because of a deadly multi-vehicle crash that happened before 6 a.m. on west 580 near hopyard road. the crash involved a big rig and five other vehicles. three of them caught fire in the collision. highway patrol says the chain reaction crash started with a big rig rear ending the bmw.
12:10 pm
the driver of the bmw was killed. chp says the truck was going 50 miles an hour and the driver did not brake before the crash. >> why there was no braking or why the big rig driver wasn't able to notice traffic stopping ahead is something that we need to figure out. but it's also very frustrating to us. >> they say the big rig driver is the cooing with investigators. several people suffered minor injuries in the crash. traffic backed up all the way to tracy. all lanes of traffic did reopen around 9 a.m.? investigators are looking into another inmate death at the santa clara county jail a36- year-old man who was arrested for an outstanding warrant had several preexisting medical conditions an suffered a medical emergency while in the jail's infirmary. the inmate was rushed to valley medical center where he was pronounced dead. there have been eight inmates who died in custody at the jail since last year. releasing information on the deaths is one of the treatments put in place after the death of

it was a good night for donald trump and hillary clinton as they both locked down big wins and widened their delegate leads in five primaries yesterday. >> they are shifting their focus towards a general election match-up. but as kristin fisher reports, their rivals are not quite ready to concede victory. >> that's a massive landslide. >> reporter: it was a clean sweep for donald trump. he won all five pipelines tuesday pushing his delegate far beyond those of his gop rivals and well within striking distance of the 1237 needed to secure the nomination before the convention. >> two people are really hanging around. they did very poorly last night. we very much exceeded what everybody thought. >> reporter: trump says he believes the race is over, that he considers himself the presumptive nom anyplace. ted cruz and john kasich are pressing ahead. the first test will be next
12:15 pm
tuesday in indiana where kasich has already stopped spending time and money to clear a path for ted cruz and allow him to be more competitive in a one-on- one match-up against trump. >> we are barn storming the state, traveling across the state, and seeing tremendous support from the people on the ground. >> reporter: as for the democrats, hillary clinton did very well. but it wasn't quite the sweep that it was for trump. she beat bernie sanders in four of five states. her only loss was rhode island where sanders beat her by 12 points. he is vowing to stay into the race until at least california. >> this campaign is not just about electing a president. it is about transforming our nation. >> reporter: both trump and clinton already shifting their focus to the general election, and ted cruz, despite his losses, appears to be doing the same as well. it's rumored he will announce carly fiorina as his vice presidential pick late they are afternoon. christie fisher.
12:16 pm
we saw rain this morning. there may be more in store. >> we could have a few isolated thunderstorms into the afternoon hours. for the most part we are seeing breaks in the cloud cover. we had the front move across the bay area this morning. still some luis gongora clouds out there with our walnut creek camera showing you some overcast luis gongora across parts of the bay area. the main action is heading out towards the central valley. all the activity, thunderbolts popping up on the radar. noun the main focus is towards stockton, tracy and lingering thunderbolts here. so there is at least evidence that the atmosphere is de- stabilizing. when you get the sunshine out there, that helps to de- stabilize the atmosphere a bit more and, as a result, we could have more thunderstorm development this afternoon. up in lake county, have some showers developing. the main threat for showers today will probably be coming from this direction moving in from the north.
12:17 pm
so with that the best chance of some isolated thunderstorms could be towards napa county, contra costa county. current numbers out there definitely have cooled off over the past few days. santa rosa right now 60. san francisco 58. san jose in the upper 50s. showing you the current wind speeds. bit blustery as well. that has been a theme all week long. fairfield that smaller number. that's gust to 23 miles per hour. sfo, here we go, sustained at 28. gusting to 37 miles an hour. here is the forecast for today. our forecast model, i will tell you it's hard to pick up the isolated thunderstorm development. you get the general idea. we will have more showers to the north and also to our east at 3:00 and possibly some snow showers for the higher terrain of the sierra and then at 6:00 as well. so even though the bay area not covered, through the day there is a chance of some thunderstorm development and with that the possibility of some hail as well. so just keep an eye to the sky.
12:18 pm
we will be watching out for that over the next four six hours in the bay. then later on for your thursday we are going to clear things out. mostly sunny skies to set the stage for a warming trend just in time for your bay area weekend. today this afternoon temperatures mainly in the 60s to right around 70 degrees out towards brentwood. 70 san francisco. some more neighborhoods, san jose we'll go 66. half moon bay checks in 60. your five-day forecast. we take a look at thursday. still a bit of a breeze out there. you see the noticeable trend. temperatures definitely heading up into the weekend and by sunday warmest locations could be back up into the mid-to- upper 80s. i know, gasia, earlier you asked me, is it safe to go outside for a walk this afternoon? >> right. >> i think it will be. just one of those deals where those isolated thunderstorms could pop up. it happens so rapidly. keep an eye to the sky and bring an umbrella. >> thank you.

12:20 pm
this? >> a state-of-the-art bed. it drops down in a matter of seconds to convert to being ready for deliver. >> reporter: we have the baby bassinet. that promotes bonding right away. we are a baby friendly hospital. that means we support evidence based practices that promote maternal and child health. >> reporter: and the views are amazing. >> right. >> reporter: we are going to the nicu. what i immediately noticed is that, nicus with a lot of different bassinets close together, there is only one. >> . yes and we have several rooms where we allow for the baby and the mother again, nicu babies very sick, and we want the parents to have a quiet environment to be with their
12:21 pm
baby. >> reporter: this is a new way to look at healthcare. it doesn't always mean efficiency. what is the experience going to be like with the mom. they are worried, they don't want to leave their side. this way they don't have to. >> absolutely. studies have showing having this healing environment does promote efficient car. >> reporter: this is one of the postpartum rooms. again immediately you see space. >> yes. >> reporter: lots of space in here. and -- >> and what you don't see. you don't see a lot of equipment. you don't see the medical gases. you see a room set up with nice wood interior. if an emergency occurs, we open it up and it's there. >> reporter: we have been hearing about your staff, the beds. >> they are much more ergonomically helpful to lift and turn patients. >> reporter: absolutely . >> so the birthing center isn't the only part of this new tower.
