7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." hillary clinton says she will now turn over her private e-mail server to the justice department. this follows news that two e-mails from her personal system contained top-secret information. >> now, for months the democratic presidential front runner had rejected calls to turn over her server. the republican national chairman says clinton, quote, knows she did something wrong and has run out of ways to cover it up. jan crawford, good morning. >> good morning. this is a big change of course for clinton. she had insisted she was not going to turn over that private server because it contained personal e-mail. instead she had goned over and turned over to the state department about half of her 60,000-some e-mails that she says were work related. but now as part of the fbi's investigation into the handling of all of that e-mail, she's turned it over over growing
7:04 am
concerns some of that e-mail was highly classified. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: clinton has repeatedly denied she handled classified information while on her searcher as secretary of state. >> i am confident i never received any information it was classified at the time it was sent and received. >> i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. >> reporter: but according to the state department on tuesday, the inspector general for the intelligence community says at least two of those e-mails should be upgraded to the top-secret level. one of the highest levels of classification. hours later, clinton directed her team to hand over her entire private e-mail server to the fbi as well as a thumb drive containing copies of the e-mails she's already provided. the fbi began reviewing the security of clinton's e-mail system last month. carol is a reporter for "the washington post." >> this is a classic counterintelligence operation. has any of this information, as
7:05 am
a result of being shared in e-mails between hillary clinton and her aides, has any of it fallen into enemy hands? is any of it still out there in the ether, in the cloud on somebody else's thumb drive? >> reporter: a clinton spokesperson says her team has worked with the state department to ensure her e-mails are stored in a safe and secure manner. rnc chairman reince priebus and republican house speaker john boehner shot back. on the campaign trail, clinton is certain to face growing questions. >> she's supposed to be talking about the issues and how she's going to be a great choice for the leader of our country. but now the news is filled with questions about whether or not she has put some national information in jeopardy. >> and already the story is having an impact. the latest cbs news poll from last month shows 55% of overall voters think clinton is untrustworthy, that number up seven points since may. gayle? >> all right, jan.
7:06 am
big turn of developments. thank you so much. and the clinton campaign faces new trouble this morning in the key state of new hampshire. for the first time, the poll shows vermont senator bernie sanders leading hillary clinton. in the first-in-the-nation elm diddic primary state. a new survey shows sanders in front by 44-37%. back in march, hillary clinton had a 39-point lead. the same poll shows donald trump is the top republican candidate in new hampshire. the billionaire developer is now five points ahead of jeb bush. ohio governor john kasich is in third place. another new poll shows trump holding a lead in iowa. wisconsin governor scott walker is in second place. major garrett is in michigan where he spoke to trump after a rally on tuesday. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the sign still reads "sold out," and donald trump did pack the house here last night. you had to pay to get in, $125 for the best seats, $25 for the rest. all the proceeds going to the
7:07 am
local republican party. trump remained high concept, that means few details. but few in the capacity crowd of about 3,000 appeared to mind. >> let's say it's president trump. ladies and gentlemen, president of the united states, donald j. trump! >> reporter: the very thought thrilled the capacity crowd in this small town outside of saginaw, michigan. trump's rambling speech, his first since the ratings-shattering fox debate last week hit familiar targets. china. >> we owe china $1.4 trillion. their leaders are so much smarter than ours. >> reporter: illegal immigration. >> we have to build a wall. the wall -- >> reporter: and former florida governor jeb bush. >> i noticed he's not doing very well in the polls. >> reporter: more than anything, trump touched on a theme of turnaround artists for a country this audience seemed to believe needs one. >> the american dream is dead, but i'm going to make it bigger and better and stronger than ever before, okay?
7:08 am
i'll say that. >> reporter: afterward, trump told us nothing could stop him. except fickle voters. >> the only thing that can really drive me out, if my numbers drop down, i'm a realist, but i don't see that happening. >> reporter: nancy of saginaw said she was sold. when you see him, you see the next president of the united states? >> i do. >> reporter: and not jeb bush, not scott walker. >> oh, no, no, no, no, no. >> reporter: what's wrong with those others? >> 100% controlled. >> reporter: by what? >> everybody. >> reporter: at a press conference, trump again went after bush, saying he would be a poor job creator. >> jeb bush will not be able to negotiate against china. jeb bush will not be able to negotiate against mexico. >> reporter: reporters tried to pin trump down on specific actions he would take to defeat isis, challenge china, improve race relations and create jobs. we were met with a wall of generalities. voters we talked to afterwards said they trust trump will eventually come up with answers,
7:09 am
his campaign says in about a week or so. >> major, there was a lot in that speech. quite a thing to behold. thank you so much. all right. jeb bush this morning blames secretary clinton and president obama for the rise of isis. speaking at the reagan presidential library, the republican candidate said the obama administration was too quick to take u.s. combat troops out of iraq. >> that premature withdrawal was the fatal error, creating the void that isis moved in to fill and that iran has exploited to the full as well. where was the secretary of state? where was secretary of state clinton in all of this? in all of her record-setting travels, she stopped by iraq exactly once. who can seriously argue that america and our friends are safer today than in 2009? when the president and secretary clinton, the storied team of rivals, took office. so eager to be the history makers, they failed to be the peacemakers. >> bush said the u.s. may need
7:10 am
to send ground troops back to iraq. he called for more airstrikes to support iraqi and kurdish troops fighting isis. he also wants better recruitment and stronger online response to the isis propaganda. ahead we talk with carly fiorina. new polls show the only woman in the republican race is picking up new support. in fact, she just surpassed jeb bush in iowa. she'll join us ahead here on "cbs this morning." >> looking forward to talking to her. a u.s. army helicopter crashed near japan. seven on board were hurt. the helicopter went down during a training mission off the southern island of okinawa. the wreckage is now sitting on a u.s. ship off the japanese coast. you can see here that the chopper's tail is broken off. the rest is covered with an orange tarp. now, military officials say the helicopter crashed while trying to land on the ship. american companies are feeling the impact this morning of china's move to weaken its currency. china devalued the yuan for the second straight day. the initial move monday sent
7:11 am
stocks tumbling in the united states. the dow closed down 212 points tuesday. that is a decline of more than 1%. shares of apple dropped by more than 5%. seth doane is in beijing. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. devaluing the currency here means that it's all of a sudden considerably cheaper to produce goods here in china, that is good for the export market which had been struggling. it was down more than 8% just last month. overall the chinese economy has been struggling. on the flip side, it means that the yuan, the currency here, is not as strong. so chinese consumers can't buy as much. and that's tough for companies like apple which really depend on sales to the chinese market for growth. china's central bank has noted that the yuan has been stable over the last several months as other global currencies have dropped. so they say this is a natural correction. but in the u.s., there is cry from lawmakers who say this is an unfair advantage because all of a sudden you've made chinese
7:12 am
products so much cheaper than, say, u.s. products. china's government has been saying along that it wants the yuan to be a global currency. so this move could stal thignal it's willing to tie its currency more to global market forces. regardless, this is likely to be a topic of conversation next month as china's president xi jinping travels to america. norah? >> i think this is the biggest story of the day. seth doane in beijing, thank you. and secretary of state john kerry made a remarkable admission about foreign cyber espionage. kerry told "cbs evening news's" scott pelley tuesday that it is very possible that the chinese and russians are reading his own e-mails. >> unfortunately we're living in a world where a number of countries, the chinese and russians included, have consistently been engaged in cyber attacks against american interests, against the american government. >> it's very likely that your e-mails are being read? >> it's very possible. there's no way for me, and i
7:13 am
certainly write things without awareness. >> with all of the attacks that have come apparently from china on the u.s. government, there is a sense that the united states is unable to defend itself in the cyber world. >> we are deeply involved in fighting back against this on a daily basis. it has huge consequences, and we're trying to create a code of conduct and a system of behavior that hopefully could rein some of it in. but right now it's pretty -- it's pretty much the wild west, so to speak. >> kerry's comments come after a number of recent cyber attacks against the u.s. government. officials believe those hacks were carried out by china and russia. this morning a texas police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man is out of a job today. the arlington police department fired rookie officer brad miller. he killed 19-year-old christian taylor last week at a car dealership. last night that deadly shooting sparked protests outside the arlington police department.
7:14 am
omar is there. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. rookie arlington police officer brad miller joined the department in september and was still in training which means he had limited field experience. it was that limited field experience that led to what his own department is calling troubling conduct. >> i have decided to terminate officer miller's employment with the arlington police department for exercising poor judgment. >> reporter: officials say that poor judgment was on display early friday morning when a rookie cop gunned down 19-year-old christian taylor. police were called to an arlington, texas, car dealership to investigate a burglary and found taylor acting erratically. >> he just crashed through the gate. >> with what vehicle? a stolen vehicle? >> with his vehicle. >> reporter: officer miller is seen walking toward the building. >> officer miller exercised inappropriate judgment by entering the building alone. this unilateral decision along with failing to communicate with fellow officers created an
7:15 am
environment of cascading consequences that produced an unrecoverable outcome. >> whoa, we got shots fired. >> reporter: the 49-year-old officer told investigators he was worried taylor would overpower him. he fired his weapon four times, striking taylor in the neck, chest and abdomen. taylor, a college football player, died at the scene. he wasn't armed and never made physical contact with the officer. miller's training officer who was near him at the time of the shooting fired his taser. he is also on paid administrative leave. at arlington police department will hand the case over to the district attorney's office. they will present it to the grand jury for possible criminal charges but not until the investigation is complete. norah? >> omar, thank you so much. local officials in missouri could lift the state of emergency for ferguson sometime today. overnight a few dozen people marched through the st. louis suburb. the demonstrations were mostly peaceful. there were no arrests. police released video yesterday

7:17 am
dillution. colorado governor john hickenlooper visited a contaminated stretch of the animas river tuesday. and admitted while he's disappointed with the epa, he's focused on the cleanup. >> everyone's angry. i was angry. that said, our primary role thousand is that's behind us, and how are we going to move forward? >> reporter: even though the water looks normal now, over the past week, a plume of pollution with heavy metals including arsenic and lead has marched at least 100 miles downstream. in washington, d.c., tuesday epa administrator gina mccarthy apologized for the spill. >> it pains me to no end to see this is happening, but we're working tirelessly to respond, and we've committed to full review of exactly what happened. >> reporter: preliminary tests show in durango that the water quality is returning to the level it was before the accident. still, the river will need to be monitored for years to come. >> we'll be back in it soon.

>> reporter: charlie noon makes a living off these waters as a fishing guide. >> we've had some cancellations for sure. it's been tough because a lot of people do come here to fish the animas. it's a beautiful river. not right now, but usually it is. >> reporter: with businesses and families waiting for the all-clear, governor hickenlooper says he hopes the county sheriff will be able to reopen the river as soon as it's safe. >> i want to have that information in his hands the moment we have it. and by that i mean in minutes. not in hours, not in days, the moment we have it. >> reporter: the navajo nation says it is feeling the brunt of this spill. so far they have had to declare an emergency because they can no longer take water in from the river you see behind me. gayle? >> thanks. this morning there are more than 40 major wildfires burning in eight western states north of san francisco, crews are struggling to control the growing jerusalem fire. it doubled in size on tuesday and has burned 14,000 acres. that has forced additional

7:44 am
i feel like it's big problem. >> reporter: this 6,000-feet vertical sheet of gray limestone is considered one of the world's most dangerous climbs. dozens have died trying to reach the top. after a long day scaling the mountain, sasha skyped with us last night from her makeshift bed perched on the edge of a cliff. what makes the route you are currently tackling so difficult? >> when you're alpine climbing, you're dealing with factors like unanticipated weather. >> we're in a cloud. >> which means storms can roll through it. it's really full on, you're facing, like, 12 to 18-hour days. >> reporter: in his book, "eiger dreams," mountaineer jon crakauer writes, "this makes the eiger north face one of the most widely coveted climbs in the world. sasha is attempting to being about the first woman to reach the summit. is that important to you?
7:45 am
>> it is important to me. i think when other women open the floodgates, showing that something is possible, then all of a sudden you see progression in a sport. >> just got down from the 70-plus pitch. >> reporter: sasha, who's been climbing since she was 6 years old, won three national rock climbing championships and was female overall world champion. she's traveled to dozens of countries to compete and climb some of the world's most difficult rock formations. >> yes! >> reporter: but when she decided to attempt eiger, she says she faces more resistance than she expected. >> people saying, like, little girls don't belong on the eiger. in real life being laughed at in my face about saying that i was trying something on the eiger. >> reporter: that hasn't stopped her. nor has the fear. she admits she sometimes feels up there. >> i think that it's wrong to think that people can be fearless. i think that fear is inevitable. but i don't think that fear needs to be inhibiting. >> fear certainly hasn't
7:46 am
inhibited her. sasha hopes to reach the summit sometime next week, but that all depends on the weather which can be brutal there. her father, who died last year, used to tell her three things before every climb. have fun, be safe, and do your best, which isn't bad advice whatever you're doing in life. he sa especially when you're facing the murder wall. >> she certainly knows what she's doing. >> she does. impressive young woman. >> how about after this? >> she says she's going to try professional climbing and sports management. i have a feeling she'll be good at whatever. >> if i was her mom, i'd be a nervous wreck. boy, she's a badass. we're cheering for you. guys don't usually make the cut when they try out for nba dance teams, or do they? see what happened when this dancer tried to break through with this move. >> he had some moves, i'll tell you that. wow!

hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the democratic presidential front-runner agreed on tuesday to turn it over to the justice department. clinton also handed over a thumb drive with copies of those messages. >> the state department says two of the e-mails sent through the server are now classified top secret. a spokesman says department employees circulated these e-mails on unclassified systems in 2009 and 2011. and ultimately some were forwarded to secretary clinton. they were not marked as classified. a new poll this morning shows donald trump leads the republican field in new hampshire. 41% in the survey say they support some of trump's ideas. but they think he doesn't have the right temperament to be president. in another new poll, 55% of republican voters in iowa say they're less comfortable with trump after last week's debate. major garrett asked the candidate about that last night. >> reporter: voters were less comfortable with you after the debate. >> no, i haven't seen that. my numbers went up. well, i don't know. my numbers went up. excuse me. did i win? >> reporter: that's for you to
8:03 am
decide. >> excuse me. >> reporter: jeb bush -- >> if you don't say yes, then you're not an honest reporter. good-bye. >> major garrett is with us from birch run, michigan. good morning. well, that's just trump just being trump. you asked a good question. there's actually a lot in this poll that suggests there might be a ceiling for trump, right? >> reporter: that's right. and donald trump does appear to be indifferent or immune to data that makes him unhappy. and that could be a problem for him as a professional politician, which he now admits he has to be. you have to weigh the data, and donald trump tells voters all the time that he's very good at that. he's very skilled at understanding the mechanics of data and how to cut deals and make things happen. well, it's clear from the data in new hampshire and iowa that some voters felt less comfortable with him after the debate even though donald trump says he won. and look, the ratings were huge. it was his first debate against professional politicians. so he has some legitimate claim to having won that debate, but he does seem hostile to the idea that there might be something in these numbers that doesn't work perfectly for him.
8:04 am
he's got to get over that if he intends to be a successful presidential candidate. one other thing i would say is moments later, he said to me "you saw what i did there, right?" implies i'm not an honest reporter but just a player in this ongoing reality tv show, and probably so. >> thanks so much. >> i said okay, big player. >> okay. let's take a look at the gop field. in iowa donald trump leads followed by walker, rubio and carson. but look at how is now in sixth place. carly fiorina has passed jeb bush in iowa. she's also in the top five in new hampshire. fiorina was praised for her performance in last week's early republican debate. she's now with us from washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. how are you? >> i'm good. and we're pleased to have you here. tell me what your strategy is, what your plan is to take advantage of the attention that you have been receiving since the debate. >> well, you know, when i went into that debate last thursday,

less than 40% of republican voters had ever heard my name. so i had a big introduction to do. and i think now that people know who i am, know that i am capable of not only winning this job but doing this job, i'm going to continue doing what i've been doing, which is talking to as many voters as i can about what i think is necessary for our nation. and what i think is necessary, first and foremost, is a different kind of leadership that will challenge the status quo in washington, get this economy going again, really cut government bureaucracy down to size and hold it accountable and leadership that will restore our place in the world. >> many people would say that who want to be president. the question is, how do you do that? >> well, but many people don't have the experience and the resume that i have. having started as a secretary and gone on to become the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world, i really do understand how the
8:06 am
economy works. i know more world leaders on the stage today than anyone running, with the possible exception of hillary clinton, but i didn't do photo ops. i did work and charity and policy work in nations all over the world. so i understand the world and how it works and who's in it. i've led and transformed bureaucracies. that's important. because the federal government is one giant bloated unaccountable, inept bureaucracy that no longer serves the people who pay for it. i understand technology, which is a tool. it's also a weapon, as we know, that's being used against us. >> carly, let me ask you, then, about one of the biggest on the global stage, and that is china. as you know, they have just devalued their currency twice. president xi is scheduled to come to the white house next week. if you were president, with a would you say to him? >> i would say several things. first, china has made a bargain with their people. their people have accepted a repressive totalitarian regime in exchange for economic growth. and so china's ability to keep growing is at the core of their power.
8:07 am
i would say first that we are going to be more aggressive in helping our allies in that region push back against new chinese aggression. whether those allies are australia or japan or the philippines. i would be conducting actually now at a moment when china's economy is wavering a bit, i would be conducting more fly-overs on the south china sea. we cannot permit china to control a trade route through which passes $5 trillion worth of goods and services every year. and finally, i would say the chinese cyber attacks are an act of aggression on the united states, and they must stop. it is also true that our government has to be more competent about detecting and repelling those attacks. >> ms. fiorina, the director of a new hampshire poll says all of these long-shot candidates staying in the race are helping to keep donald trump on top and hurting the chances of some of the other candidates. do you agree that it's hurting your candidacy as well? and what do you think about him being on top?
8:08 am
>> you know, i actually think that voters, republican voters, are quite happy to see a broad, diverse, qualified field. voters are going to decide. and this field will shake out over time. i also think that presidential campaigns reveal character. over time and under pressure. and so what's going to happen is each of our characters will continue to be revealed. over time and under pressure. >> if mr. trump becomes the nominee, would you support him? >> i will support whoever the nominee of the republican party is. >> all right. >> all right. carly fiorina, good to have you here at the table. we hope you'll come back. >> thanks. thanks for having me. can science stop drones from causing another tragedy in the middle of this summer's wildfires? ahead, see how even nasa is

but they are starting to crack down on this. there's an example last year where they fined sony for one of their tweeting marketing campaigns because they basically hired their ad agency. and their ad agency had all their employees out tweeting positive things without disclosing we work for sony. they were fined millions of dollars which then they remediate and give back to consumers that purchase this product thinking oh, it's a great product. i heard some kid say it. i think it's not a celebrity issue. i think consumers are smart. we all know kim's getting paid. everybody gets paid in celebrity land, but what about the average consumer? >> they don't know it is what you're saying. >> i don't think most people assume that celebrities are getting paid. now we know you're crazy if you don't. but how -- >> you should be getting paid. >> oh. no. >> are you getting paid? >> no, never. >> is this an endorsement? >> if i say i like something, it's because i legitimately do. >> like your blackberry. >> i don't get paid for that. i just speak about stuff i really like.

one day my little daughter and my two sons will grow up in a world not conscious of the color of their skin but only conscious of the fact that they are members of the human race. >> that's part of a recording from 1962, nine months before king's landmark address on the national mall. king spoke at a high school in rocky mountain, north carolina. north carolina state university professor jason miller released the audio tuesday. he found it in a rocky mount library. >> me, too. goose bumps. >> what a discovery to find that audio recording, you know? these buried treasures that are just, you know, in the archives in libraries and stuff. >> rocky mount, north carolina. >> yeah. >> north carolina. >> indeed. but they did know that he'd use that phrased before. he actually made the famous speech in other sermons. >> still holds up all these years later. the "new york post" reports on how home teams making history in major league baseball. for the first time, all 15 teams
8:32 am
that played at home on tuesday won their games. the final win was the seattle mariners, beating baltimore 6-5 in ten innings. pronounce innings. the home field advantage is important in sports, but the previous record was only 11 home teams with victories on the same day. >> pretty cool. i know. very cool. and "the washington post" reports on a panda pregnancy watch at the national zoo. she's given birth to cubs before, and guess what. she might be pregnant again. there's been a rise in her hormone levels! she could deliver a cub in the next few weeks. but it may also be a false pregnancy, so let's not celebrate too early. she was artificially inseminated twice in april. we will remain on panda watch and update all of you with information when we know for sure. >> we're hopeful. >> yes. >> we're excited. a new german study claims parenting can have a significant negative impact on your happiness. some believe that it feels worse than divorce, unemployment or the death of a partner.
8:33 am
helen fisher is a biological anthropologist and senior research fellow at the kenzie institute. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i was surprised by this. we're not talking about postpart postpartum. we should make that very clear. most people are having the baby shower, you're picking out clothes and names but it can also cause unhappiness. >> right. they say the amount of unhappiness is even more than when you've been divorced, when you're divorcing, when you are losing a job, and when your partner dies. >> why is that, helen? >> you know, there's many reasons for this. but i think the most important one -- i mean, i've studied the brain, and the most important thing is the social isolation. people simply assume that when you are getting a divorce, they pile in to help you. they pile in to help you when you've lost your job. they really pile in when you've lost your partner. but they don't pile in when you've had a child. so you're really happy. your mother might come for six weeks and take care of the newborn, but then she's gone.
8:34 am
you get some presents from various friends, and then they just leave you alone because they figure you're too tired and too busy. you know, i mean, for millions of years, we've lived in these little hunting and gathering bands, and that child was passed from person to person to person over and over again. giving the mother enough time to get enough sleep, to talk with her friends, et cetera. it's not natural, really, to raise a baby all by yourself in a home alone. >> so the reason with the unhappiness is the time demands it makes on the mother. >> there's many reasons. certainly exhaustion, sleep deprivation. very often your relationship with your primary partner becomes more and more difficult. and we live in a society now where we're turning inwards. that primary relationship is the most important thing that we have. we used to live in large communities. and our allegiance was to god and community and larger family. now it's to one person. and when that system begins to break down with the exhaustion, et cetera, then you're losing
8:35 am
almost everything. >> so you're a biological anthropologist. and you say we've become less family centric. and that plays a part. how do we become -- how do we reverse that? >> well, what we're really missing is local community. and we can regain local community even if our mother lives in minnesota and our best girlfriends in other parts of the country. >> but isn't the counterargument we're more connected because of our devices? >> but it's isolation. you're doing it at home by yourself. you're not doing it in a big group. there's no local community. i mean, i jog in central park in the mornings. and i see these groups of mothers with their little baby carriages with tiny babies in it. and they're building that local community that the human animal needs. but they will all go home alone. they will all spend the rest of the day pretty much by themselves. they're also concerned about work these days. many women are working and they're just scared that they might lose some of the impetus at the office, et cetera, et cetera. there's a great deal of struggle. >> so the most important lesson here is to find a community and
8:36 am
create a community. >> absolutely. and we would do that naturally. >> and share. >> yes. >> got you. >> really interesting. >> i think so, too. >> yeah. build your community. think how we have a community here at the table. >> i didn't understand the study, helen. and then you start talking to people. and more and more people are saying yeah, i wasn't exactly happy. >> as a matter of fact, there's a taboo against it. you know someone's depressed when they're getting depressed or losing a job or losing a partner. but we assume that they're happy, and that's what's unusual about this study because people don't even do the studies to find out because we're so engrossed in the feeling that this is just perfect bliss. >> thank you. >> thank you, helen fisher. >> thank you. proof this morning that it's never too late to push yourself in the gym. a recent study shows people 55 and older are the fastest growing group that are joining health clubs. how about that? well, we met a remarkable 77-year-old woman who's reshaping more than her body by breaking a sweat. >> do one more lap around the box. >> reporter: keeping up with her
8:37 am
today, it's hard to believe that just a few months ago, constance's body was failing her. you've had two hip replacements. >> two knee replacements. two rotator cuffs, a partial and a full. >> reporter: but all of that couldn't stop her from turning her life around. how important do you think it is for seniors to be working out? >> get up and do it. stop with the whining. stop with oh, you've got to take care of me. take care of yourself. >> reporter: something constance didn't used to do. her health problems started almost 30 years ago when she was 50. she took insulin four times a day for diabetes and 60 pills to treat high blood pressure, congenital heart failure, and arthritis. then last fall, constance's done suggested she try crossfit and helped her find this brooklyn gym. you said to me you aren't really somebody who went to the gym or worked out. >> no.
8:38 am
>> reporter: you never worked out? >> no. >> reporter: until you were 77? >> yeah. >> warm up into it. >> reporter: she met the gym owner, david. and after just ten months of working out together, constance is down to a few pills a day and has lost 50 pounds. >> how's the weight feel? >> it's good. >> people have this perception that you have to be some, you know, really exceptional physical genetic person to come in and make tremendous progress like this. but it's just about consistency. >> reporter: and there's strong evidence that movement improves senior health. in the largest study on the issue, doctors followed more than 1600 seniors over a two-year period. they found that regular and moderate physical activity reduced the risk of disability by 18%. what have you been most impressed about with constance? >> i think her attitude. >> i do fist bumps. >> reporter: fist bump. >> people say she lights up the room when she comes in. good. >> reporter: she calls you her adopted son. how does that make you feel? >> it's good.
8:39 am
she's my adopted mother. there's a psychosocial element to fitness. part of all this is meeting people and expanding your social base and just having more people in your life that you can depend upon and that you can trust. >> reporter: for constance, that moment came in june. her devoted husband, the man who took her to every crossfit session, died suddenly. it was on the same day he was scheduled to start his own fitness plan. what would your husband think of where you are today? >> he's with me right now. he was my nurse, my doctor, my friend, my everything. he was my encouragement. he's still my encouragement. >> reporter: encouragement that constance says will keep her working out. crossfit has changed you physically. >> mentally, spiritually. when my husband died and the
8:40 am
word spread, in my wildest dreams, i never thought they would be there with me. and they were there with me at his gravesite, and they're still with me. and they'll be with me till i leave here. south brooklyn crossfit is my family. my children. and i mean it from the bottom of my heart. >> you know, it's so interesting when you talk about developing -- >> norah, just pass the kleenex before you say anything. what an amazing woman. but go ahead, sorry. >> yeah, we were just talking about community. so not only has she improved her health physically, but the psychosocial element, too, of fitness. you know, she now has this group of everybody at the gym went to her husband's funeral. she has a community there, a trainer. >> and they'll be with her until she dies. >> yeah. i mean, she's changed her life around. >> and the love she has. and you still see that she has for her husband. and she looks good. >> she does. i mean, how about that get up and do it!
8:41 am
she's, like, stop whining! >> i like when you tried to do the high five and she said no, fist bump. go, constance. country music finds its soul, you could say. see how kenya is starting to sound like the south right down to a real-life

what do a nasca comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto®
8:43 am
without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
