have i seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran. >> stop this deal. >> it comes on the same day hillary clinton outlined her support of the deal vowing to enforce it with quote, vigor and vigilance and even use military action if necessary. in las vegas a terrifying situation on the tarmac, pangs scramble off a plane taxiing for takeoff as the plane burst into flames. where is the investigation heading now. >> i felt lucky the minute i landed on the ground and i feel very lucky right now. >> and the buzz around apple. tim cook promised monster announcements unveiling the newest gadgets today. but did it live up to all the hype? we want to start with developing news this hour on the story dominating conversation in the halls of congress and on the campaign trail. donald trump, ted cruz and sar
pal sarah palin. take a listen. >> i've been making lots of wonderful deals, great deals. that is what i do. never, ever, ever in my life have i seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran. >> this iranian nuclear deal is catastrophic. it is the single greatest national security threat facing america. the obama administration will become quite literally the world's leading financier of radical islamic terrorism. >> but for donald trump it was more than that. it was about win squning. >> we'll have so much winning if i get elected that you will get
board with winning. i agree. we never get bored with winning. >> casey hunt is live on capitol hill covering the rally. thanks for joining us. let's talk about the fiery lang from donald trump. how was it received by the crowd first of all? >> well, ayman, as you heard him say there, he thinks that the crowds will never get bored of winning and so far they are not bored with donald trump, although i would say that is the risk he runs the next couple of months. this was a crowd built for him. and they were excited to see ted cruz as well and sarah palin for that matter. i mean this is clearly that particular niche, the tea party energy we've seen over the last couple of election cycles. >> let's talk and i know you had a chance to speak to trump. you asked him about the up coming vote in congress. let's take listen to that. >> the votes are already there. the president has essentially already won. what are you hoping to accomplish here today. >> that's true.
the president has won temporarily. but believe me, if i take over it will be a whole different ball game. things like this will never happen. >> realistically, by all measures, the deal is a done deal it. has the support in congress. very little that can be done about it now. what was the goal of this rally, casey? >> well ayman, this is an issue that is going to continue to live on through this republican presidential primary, regardless the deal is now set to go through congress. it plays to both the anger trump's campaign has hit on and strikes cords with evangelical voters. and that is obviously a flash point for the negotiations back and forth on this deal. but, you know, i think -- at this point, what you heard there from trump, this idea that it is all going to be different if i'm president of the united states is what is so frustrating for so many republicans in the capitol in this building. because they are the ones trying every day if you are a republican to stop the deal, if you are the democrat, help push
it through and that is maybe the disconnect with american people trump is capitalizing on. many establishment republicans look at him and say he has no clue how things actually happen in washington. whereas people who listen to trump instead understands that the people in washington have no clue. >> so let's talk about an unlikely alliance that has emerged here. and that is ted cruz, who helped organize this event also invited donald trump to the event. is this the beginning of a more formal alliance between these two rival candidates? >> well ayman, i don't know i would two so far as as to say formal alliance but i think cruz is being shrewd in a couple of ways. and you saw this earlier this week at his appearance with the mike huckabee in kentucky. and huckabee's campaign was in some ways frustrated that cruz decided at the last minute to come into a rally they had helped organize. but cruz ended up in the
headlines for attending the rally although he was obviously blocked from the main shot of huckabee coming out of the jail. but he also by inviting trump here guaranteed that you ended up with that much bigger crowd. guaranteed that trump was, you know, in front of all the cameras a that have followed him here. it is a much bigger press court from all over the world. and right alongside of donald trump is ted cruz. and he's hoping to be able to capture some of that energy and maybe some voters if trump doesn't go all the way. >> and what did sarah palin have to say? >> i spoke briefly with sarah palin. i had actually covered here a little bit back in 2010 and 11 when she was considering whether or not to run again and i asked what she thought of the campaign jeb bush is running. >> you know what always is the problem in washington? is when these high paid consultants and try to come in and shape you and mold you and
turn you into something that you are not. for all we know jeb bush is highly energetic and very charismatic. be if he's hired any of these consultants that keep losing election after election after election, well that is a mistake on his part. >> so that is actually something sarah palin has said repeatedly. she herself feels frustration with how she was managed back in 2008. but as a rebuttal, having covered jeb bush a little as well he's actually someone who is not easily managed. he tends to be difficult for staff to handle. in some ways if he's in fact coming across as joyless on the trail or with not enough energy that many people close to bush would be the first to say that bush takes responsibility more his own campaign events. >> for more i want to bring in luke russert inside capitol hill. what is the reaction been there so far to what is happening
outside with this anti iran nuclear deal rally? >> well like many things here it depends who you talk to. i think establishment republicans like mcconnell and corker and boehner and mccarthy, who have actually worked to put the legislative mechanisms in place so congress can even have the ability to vote on the disapproval of the iran deal, they look at this as just a bunch of hot air and people trying to rally around a cause which was decided a long time ago when we knew that there would not be veto -- sorry, there would be veto proof majorities in the house and senate. we learned about the senate more recently than the house. all that said, i think the most interesting aspect of today's event was ted cruz really going after mitch matrcconnell and jo boehner asserting they have somehow the ability to stop this deal from moving forward.
what they are talking about is this idea hatched last night among republicans because the administration has not been forthcoming between the quote unquote side deals between iran and the iaea. and then neld have to either vote to approve or disapprove by september 17th. this is something the leadership is having to contend with today. they have a meeting about it at 4:00 today but it presents an interesting scenario buzz the leadership is going to be tasked with having to deal with rabid conservative members that think they can kill this deal procedurely when in fact they don't necessarily e believe that because they don't know when the clock started. ted cruz fanned the flames. i asked trump if boehner and mcconnell have been doing enough to stop the deal. he said no they could be doing more. i asked to sarah palin and she echoed the sentiments. so you are seeing trump align with the ted cruzs and the sarah
pailan palins. >> we're going to have to wait and see what happens in the next week or so and see if republicans can pull anything off. and today's action on the iran deal wasn't limited to the steps outside the capitol. across town hillary clinton dlir delivered a major speech with her rationale for supporting the deal. >> you remember president reagan's lines about the soviets? trust but verify. my approach will be distrust but verify. we should anticipate that iran will test the next president. they will want to see how far they can bend the rules. that won't work if i'm in the white house. >> for more on this, i want to bring in foreign policy advisor to the clinton campaign and -- gentlemen, thank you both for joining us. ambassador burns, you heard some of the rhetoric at that rally
against the deal today. at this point, what is the republican strategy on the iran deal? >> i think it's very clear now that the democrats have the votes needed to essentially let this deal go forward, to see that the united states will honor the commitments we've already made. it is important to remember that the constitution gives the president considerable authority in foreign policy. now, this president was willing to have congress vote on the deal but if they don't have the apparatus to get to a vote, well all's fair. i think what is important for the future of the united states is that we have the ability to implement this deal. but as secretary clinton said today it is just not enough to have a nuclear deal go forth. we have to have a comprehensive american strategy to deny iran a nuclear weapon but also to thwart iran in regional ambitions. iran has been a troublemaker, fuelling terrorism in the middle east. and i thought that she gave a very serious, very detailed substantive comprehensive
strategy for the united states going forward beyond the arguments in the capitol over the iran deal itself. >> you heard him talk about the deal going forward. could a potential republican president unwind the deal in 2017 if he or she wanted to? >> well it wouldn't make a lot of sense. in theory you could. but the key to the deal is what is going to happen now is the sanctions regime is going to end and iran is going to get a huge pot of money up front and it is going to halt the progress of its nuclear program. if a president says i'm tearing up the deal, it sort of doesn't make much sense. iran has gotten this big payoff which is going to be pouring into its covers over the next months and then you have to put the sanctions regime back together. and if you listen to our allies and countries are that important players in maintaining the sanction's architecture against iran, they are basically saying that is over. we're done with sanctions.
we've reached a deal we think is reasonable. you can't snap your fingers if there is not a violation under the deal. if there is no violation you just say i didn't like this deal, the sanctions don't all come back. at least in the sbhshl international arena. i just don't think it makes sense and i think it is unlikely to happen. >> you advised the clinton campaign and today clinton took a pretty aggressive tone towards iran. is there daylight between her and the president on this issue? does she have to distance herself or create distance between her and the president since according to a lot of polls the american public is still highly skeptical. >> what she set out is a comprehensive american strategy for the future. it struck me -- and i testified on capitol hill on the iran nuclear deal -- that a lot of members were interested beyond the nuclear deal what is the strategy for the united states going forward? economic, political, military,
to contain iranian power. i thought she delivered the first serious substantive comprehensive proposal we've heard. and it is a combination of things to. implement the nuclear deal, the iranians have to understand that if they cheat and violate the terms of the agreement, they are going to be penalties, either sanctions as michael has talked about. or if they drove edwards a nuclear weapon and fundamentally violated the deal secretary clinton was clear she would use force. and on the other hand we've seen this big push by the iranians for power in the sunni world. so the iranian interventions in syria, in southern iraq, in yemen, in gaza and in lebanon, that is unnerved the entire region. the united states obviously needs to do more to support israel and support our arab allies and secretary clinton laid out a very detailed program for how the united states can do that. and what we need is a strategy to counter iran. i think we heard one this morning from secretary clinton.
>> you also heard the ambassador talk about how israel and how important that is for the iran nuclear deal. you have a knew piece out today subjecting the real audience for clinton's iran speech was israel. how would she be different from obama when it comes to israel? and explain what you meant by israel is the real audience of this speech. >> not so much the real audience necessarily but the real subject. at least the thing that jumped out at me. she did a good job going through the deal and its particular lews. but i heard in her tone really a way of saying that i am going to restore a very rocky relationship that washington has had with israel under this president. if you look back at the history when she was inside the administration, she i think felt that president obama was putting a little more pressure on israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu for having a settlement freeze from the west back that she shougt was
appropriate. and she suggested there will be kind of a new beginning if she is president. and she will repair a relationship that's been very rocky. and i think you heard nick burns say on a conference call with the campaign after the speech today that one key goal is to demonstrate unity between the united states and israel, to demonstrate to the iranians that they don't have an opening here to cause more trouble in the region. so i think that this was an important part of her region. particularly when there are a lot of jewish americans who are frustrated with some of obama's policies. you may or may not agree with that. but i think she's speaking to them and saying hey i'm actually a little closer to israel than this president and i'm going to reboot that relationship. >> gentlemen, thank you both for joining us. coming up, a frantic scene in las vegas as fire engulfs a british airways flight just before it takes off.
why it could have been a lot worse than what it was. plus jeb bush's latest attack on trump. as the new poll shows trump dominating another key primary state. and later the humanitarian crisis in europe continues to unfold. the eu proposes plan to take in 140,000 migrants and refugees as john kerry speaks about america's role. is it going to be enough? o adop. he's older so he needs my help all day. when my back pain flared up we both felt it i took tylenol at first but i had to take 6 pills to get through the day. then my friend said "try aleve". just two pills, all day. and now, i'm back for my best bud! aleve. all day strong and try aleve pm, now with an easy open cap. verizon now has one simple plan. just pick a size. small, medium, large and extra large. if you need less data, pick small.

(vo) the longest-lasting midsize sedan in its class. the twenty-fifteen subaru legacy. it's not just a sedan. it's a subaru.
today the national transportation safety board is sending a team to investigate that british airways jet that burst into flames last night in las vegas. now, the plane experienced engine failure causing an intense fire to break out on the boing 777 just as it prepared for takeoff. the incident sent more than 20 passengers to the hospital but
those on board say they didn't realize at first the danger they were in. >> there is just this tremendous explosion from behind. and i thought, well, since i'm still alive it must just be that a tire exploded. they sent, i'm not sure if it was the co-pilot or somebody else. i thought i saw him come from the cockpit but he went back. he came running back, yes the plane's on fire were gets off. >> stand on top of that chute and i could see the flames and smoke and stuff. you are thinking engines and gasoline and that could go up at any time so i was just trying to get away. >> the captain credited with a textbook response was a veteran pilot who had flown with the airline for 42 years. debra is president and ceo of the national safety council and joins us live. god to have you on again. let's talk about the main
factors investigators are going to be looking at following what happened. >> well, you know, they are going to be on their way really to look at this engine to understand if this could happen elsewhere and if there are any recommendations to be made fleetwide. they are going to be looking at the equipment, at the engine, to understand what caused the failure and what initiated the event but also the crew's response. the immediate response of the captain and cockpit crew but also the evacuation procedures and protocols and how long it took to get people off the aircraft. >> we're going to talk about evacuation procedures but what do you think likely happened just by looking at the video and images that have emerged? >> one thing i will say is that it is extremely rare to see equipment failures. so we know that they have gotten so good at making engines that perform well that can go distances that are very significant and that they are highly reliable.
the good news is that we have great records, we have great data as far as performance goes. but when there is a failure it is absolutely important to understand why. whether the miracle on the hudson with ingestion of geese into the engines or whether there is other things going on with respect to a contained or uncontained engine failure. they will want to understand that and they want to make sure they don't see this in other aircraft across the world. >> and a guardian writer on the plane wrote they felt the pilot hitting the breaks. his speed of thought probably saved our lives. what might have happened had we taken off makes me fell sick he added. how much do you award the captain and crew with avoiding a potentially deadly zaster. >> i will tell you. takeoffs are one of the flight profiles are that extremely risky. a lot of energy and acceleration taking place. high speeds. you have a fully loaded aircraft
with potentially a lot of fuel. so pilots practice rejected takeoffs in simulators on a regular basis. they go in for recurrent training and they have to make a decision to reject that takeoff in a split second. they have go/no go decisions that need to be made. they practice those. so it is important those things take place and that has helped us become a much more safe industry to practice these things in simulators. so if there was a textbook response i would credit it a lot to the industry and these individual pilots for doing their jobs just as they had been trained to do. they say fly like you train and train like you are going to fly and a that is so important. >> well certainly a sigh of relief that the situation was not worse. deborah, thank you very much for that analysis. now to baltimore and lawyers for the family of freddie gray. a 6.4 million dollar settlement with the city of baltimore.
>> the settlement represents civil justice for freddie gray's mother and his biological father. >> boolt mor officially approved the settlement. the 25-year-old died in april from a spinal injury sustained while in police custody. the settlement has nothing to do with the criminal charges pending against six officers in the case. >> the city's decision to settle the civil case should not be interpreted as passing any judgment on guilt or innocence of the officers. boolt the purpose is to bring closer to the family, the community and to the city. >> a judge is due to hear arguments on whether the trials of the six officers should be moved out of baltimore to another jurisdiction. the officers have pleaded not guilty to the charges. just ahead, breaking news on
kentucky county clerk kim davis. she's out of jail and we just found out when she's returning to work. we're going to tell you about that. also a milestone for the monarchy. what record queen elizabeth just broke. >> and steven colbert got a very comfortable welcoming and very comfortable himself at the late show last night with a classic take on donald trump and oreos. audible safety beeping audible safety beeping

issuing. it is unclear what she will do on monday. today her deputy clerk said they would continue to issue marriage licenses to the same-sex couples in her absence. joining me now from kentucky is sarah dallof. what else did she have to say? >> she released that photo surrounded by that pile of letters. she says every one of the letters she's opened has been supportive and positive. she's overwhelmed by the outpouring and she's now more confident than ever that god answers prayers. obviously not everyone duprees with her and agrees with her viewpoint. i asked her attorneys previously is she aware that there is a counterpoint to this, that not everybody is supportive of this. and her attorneys say yeah, she is aware. as to the extent, we haven't been able to get an answer as to how much he's aware of the differing viewpoint and the counterprotesters who disagree
very much with what she's done. >> kim davis cannot and will not violate her conscience. she'll do her job and she won't violate her conscience. she cannot -- she's going to also follow the kentucky law which is a very serious violation for wrongfully issuing a license. >> you hear repeatedly kim davis's lawyer saying she would not violate her conscience. do people think she's going back to jail when she returns to work on monday? >> that is a very good question. on one hand you have her deputy clerk saying yeah, whatever she says i'm going to continue issuing licenses. you have her attorney saying ambiguously and repeatedly she will not vitamin violate who are conscience. what that means we're not sure. whether the lawyers are keeping it vague to drum up more press or saying they are aware of the
interfering of issuance of licenses. it is unknown at this point. >> thank you for that update. coming up inside the humanitarian crisis growing in europe. what secretary of state john kerry is vowing today on refugees taken in by the united states. here is a simple math problem. two trains leave st. louis for albuquerque at the same time. same cargo, same size, same power. which one arrives first? hint: it's not the one on the left. the speedy guy on the right is part of an intelligent system that creates the optimal trip profile for all trains on the line. and the one on the left? uh, looks like it'll be counting cows for awhile. so maybe the same things aren't quite the same. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized. when your windshield needs for these parents, driving. around was the only way... ...to get their baby to sleep. so when their windshield got cracked, we can't drive this car they wanted it fixed right... ...so they scheduled with safelite.

>> i'm not going to be the loudest voice out there and i'm not going to try to disparage and insult people. if people are going to want someone who disparaging everybody and that is their version of a sign of strengthen i'm not going to be elected president. what i know to be true is nobody is going to be elected president just by calling people an idiot. that is not just going to work but we're going to have to fight that out. and i intend too. >> still bush finds himself trailing badly in national polls. the latest out of the south carolina showing him a distant third behind trump and a surging ben carson. joining me now democratic political strategist and --. jeb bush is laying out his new tax plan. has a new ad casting himself as the policy oriented guy. and trump and cruz meanwhile are slamming the nuclear deal. which message is going to meet with voters more right now?
>> well, whatever is most current is what really resonates with voters. and talking about the iran deal right now certainly is going to resonate with these voters in these early primary states. the caucus state of iowa and primary state of new hampshire. so this is a race why in order to connect with voters you have got to do -- at least do things that are meaningful right then and right now. so i would just think that jeb bush, in addition to being the policy guy that he is. because he's a very solid policy guy. he's got to also talk about those issues that are front and center in the minds of the voters. >> and the trump today sent a letter to cnn demanding that the network donate all profits to vet veterans. he says while i refuse to brag, this tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100% to donald j. trump.
you could view this as the public service and not accept the massive profit this is airing will generate. cheap stunt or shrewd political move. >> very much a stunt. donald trump does whatever is necessary to keep this a running necessary tv show. they should -- it is absolutely a way for him to brag to try to figure out yet another way to outhustle someone. he is definitely a businessman. and as you probably also saw in that letter ayman, that he said, you know, his being on air with them at the interviews and debates means he should be getting paid of all the candidates. he hasn't learned yet he's not running for the next business but the president of the united states. >> what is your take on that joe? >> my take is that donald trump is great for ratings. all of us know that television is a business. >> yes he is. >> it is a business moved by money and by advertising.
and donald trump right now is generating a lot of business for tv networks. everybody wants to hear what he has to say. what the next thing is. he's absolutely right and he's start to really ask the network, cnn to come forward and to consider giving some money back to people who really need it. so a smart businessman but also a very, very credible -- a very credible candidate -- >> find that word joe. find that word. >> he's doing very very well. he's leading. >> so far. >> that's right. >> angela, let me switch gears a little and talk to you about the democratic side. hillary clinton yesterday in somewhat are describing as the very straightforward apology. she came out and said i'm sorry about the e-mail issue. she did that in an interview with abc. take a listen. >> in retrospect certainly as i look back at it now, even though it was allowed, i should have used two accounts.
one for personal, one for work-related e-mails. that was a mistake. i'm sorry about that. i take responsibility. and i'm trying to be as transparent as i possibly can. >> in addition to that, she also sent out a personal apology on facebook. is the fact that she's saying "i am sorry" going to work for her? >> i think it will work, ayman. and what you have to look at is the fact that this issue is tired and it is old. people are fascinate because people love scandals so they are trying to see what the next uncovering will be. i i don't think there is anymore there there. the e-mails have been in the public. make a couple of jokes. you get to see who really runs things in hillary's camp but there is not much there. it is time to let this go and move onto the issues. it is really frustrating i think as the democratic strategist to watch because he's unveiled great policy platforms and we just haven't been able to get past this point of the te mail. i'm really glad to see she
apologized and hopefully american people will move on. and the witch hunt can be over. >> thank you very much both for your insights. coming up. crisis response. europe announces a plan to accept tens of thousands of migrants refugee applications. and united states could increase the number of people it takes in. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that helps open my airways for a full 24 hours. spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva respimat does not replace rescue inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva respimat. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells,

still not sure whether to stay or go on that business trip? ♪ should i stay or should i go well this fall stay with choice hotels two times and earn a free night. when it comes to business, you always have a choice. book now at the new choicehotels.com the head of the eu is urging european nations to kol together with a plan how to spread 150,000 refugees entering europe. the eu commissioner proposed a compulsory system for leaders to decide on by next week. one of the front lines is greece where thousands have arrived in recent weeks. nbc's bill neely has the story
from lesbos. >> they are seething. thousands of refugees and migranting have been stuck on lesbos for more than a week. >> how long have you been here. >> more than a week. >> blocked from boarding ships. police beating them back. 20,000 living in squallered camps, on the streets in forests. many children sick. >> no bathroom new york city shower. no water. >> this is becoming like a pressure cooker. >> they know pressure. they fled war in syria. >> i was cardiologist. but now i'm gypsy. we're all doctors. three doctors. we are people. we are human. >> finally a breakthrough. a new center, new papers allowing 5,000 a day to leave on ships. like the six children aiming for germany. >> for four, five day, three
four ships will be doing only this. >> all of this may well solve the crisis here but it will now push 20,000 north towards more problems in hungary. small problems if you have fled isis. >> they kill everybody. >> now i am very, very happy. >> and far out at sea, they keep coming. coast guard boats rescuing migrants on choppy seas. a tide of humanity without end. >> joining me to discuss the global response to this crisis is chief spokesperson for the u.n. high commission. we are currently experiencing the worst refugee crisis since world war ii. millions fleeing homes. thousands crossing into the europe. why do you think the international community has been unable or unwilling to address this crisis so far? >> i think it just finally came home to the wealthier countries
when, you know, a truckload full of people suffocate on the highways of vienna and when a little boy washes up to the shores of the beach and is pictured and has a name. finally i think the world has woken up to the suffering of the people. it took people having to die crossing the mediterranean to reach europe to provide this wake up call. but hopefully now we'll start seeing more action. of course, you know, countries like the u.s. and european donors have been giving money. but there haven't been many refugees arriving on their doorsteps. >> are you satisfied with the plan that has emerged from the european union today to redistribute 160,000 refugees across europe? is that enough? or is it just saimpl drop in the bucket for p.r. sake? saimimply a.
>> well it is absolutely a start. what you just showed is absolute chaos what. we're proposing and the european union as well so there aren't scenes like that on the greek islands, proper centers for the refugees arriving. they are able to register and apply for asylum. and from there they are able to be relocated. this is a very important start for the problems happening right now in europe. it does not solve the refugee problem in the neighborhood of syria and it obviously doesn't stop the conflict that is driving so many people from their homes. but it is something. >> in the past few weeks there's been added attention. for here in the united states in terms of how refugees have been taken in by the united states. today secretary of state john kerry vowed to change that. take a listen what he had to say. >> we are committed to increasing the number of refugees that we take.
and we are looking hard at the number that we can specifically manage with respect to the crisis in syria and europe in their migration today. but that's being vetted fully right now and i think at the appropriate time we'll have a better sense of exactly what that number can be. >> of the 4 million syrians who have left their country, only 1500 have been resettled here in the united states. i'm curious to hear your thoughts on that. what do you make of that response so far by the u.s.? >> well it's been a slower process but we have submitted 18,000 cases to the united states for vetting. and, you know, post911, it's very stringent security rules have been introduced. so it does take a long time for that screening to happen. but we are seeing more and more syrians being resettled from the list we submitted into the united states. if that could be elevated, if
that could be sped up and the numbers could be increased we would welcome that very much. because obviously resettlement from the neighboring countries to countries that can better handle them, that can take some of the burden, that is just really helpful. and it prevents people from having to put themselves in the hands of these ruthless smugglers and risk their lives trying to reach the shores of europe. >> melissa flemming, thank you very much for us on that report. it continues to be a humanitarian situation that unfolds. we want to move on now to a story out of charleston. the shooting survivors there finally breaking their silence. nbc's lester holt sat down with two survivors from the massacre at mother emmanuel ame church. take a listen. >> we were just about to say the prayer to be released. and he caught us with our eyes
closed. i remember my son saying mama he shot me in the head. >> your granddaughter was with you. >> yes. and i was telling my son. i said just -- just lay here. just lay here. but he was still talking to me. and i said is just lay here. and my granddaughter was hollering, saying she was so afra afraid. and i was trying -- i was trying to keep everybody close to me as calm as i could. >> the only other survivor was sanders's 11-year-old granddaughter. you can watch the rest of that emotional interview on the nightly news with lester holt. >> coming up as apple delivers
