7:02 am
into flames on the tarmac. you see the passengers streaming off the plane and abc's matt gutman on the scene in las vegas. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey good morning, george, investigators already here on the scene likely going to investigate why the fire seemed to spread from the engine to the fuselage. now, earl quarter this morning we got up to see that plane up close. you can still see the smoke smudging the fuselage. now, ba calling this a technical issue but the pilot credited with saving 170 lives called it something different. a catastrophic failure. >> speedbird 2276 heavy, we are evacuating on the runway. we have a fire. i repeat, we are evacuating. >> reporter: this morning the scramble to explain why this jetliner turned foo a fireball. >> mayday, mayday, speedbird, 2276 request fire services. >> speedbird, 2276 heavy fire services are on the way rfrjts flight 2276 bound for london bursting into flames on the
7:03 am
runway in las vegas. you can see them here scrambling to safety. >> what we had here was an un uncontained explosion of a jet engine on takeoff roll and that means it came apart catastrophically creating fire and the necessity for the flight crew to stop the airplane on the runway and get everybody off the airplane. >> reporter: 157 passengers and 13 crew aboard the 777 starting its takeoff with a belly fuel of fuel. more than a dozen were injured but all of them were in mortal danger. experts tell abc news a mechanical failure could have caused the engine to come apart spitting out fire and pieces of hot metal which in turn could have sparked a separate fire in the cargo hold. quick thinking crew helped the passengers flop down the emergency slides to the tarmac. >> is everybody okay? you could see the flames and smoke and that's when it sort of scary. >> reporter: survival instinct kicking in with this mother. >> it was so instinct, literally it was fight or flight and i
7:04 am
just jumped. i couldn't even say i felt anything. that's how fast it happened. >> reporter: friar crews sprang to the scene and bystanders, even passengers on other planes watch in horror. that billowing column of black easily visible from offices a mile away. the fire paralyzing the airport. now, the airport has re-opened the runway. can you probably hear the plane above me and ba is saying it's going to try to get those passengers back home as quickly as possible and while investigators begin their work, what is clear is had that plane taken off on fire this would have been a very different story. robin. >> you're right about that. thank you. abc news aviation consultant colonel stephen ganyard joins us from washington. give us more details on what happened here, steve. >> good morning, robin. very interesting because what happened is early in this takeoff roll as the airplane ras running down the runway only going 90 miles an hour we say it was an uncontained engine failure.
7:05 am
what that means is the engine really just exploded and it sent hot metal into the fuselage and started a fire in the fuselage itself so the fire you see in those pictures is really the airplane itself not the engine that's on fire and after they put the fire out you could see how clearly that fire came to almost penetrating into the cabin which meant this could have been a very serious, serious accident. >> oh, absolutely. as matt was saying, as well. you said they put the fire out quickly. they were on the scene like that and the crew and passengers did a great job of getting off that plane so quickly. >> he did. apparently what happened is, well, they were right on the middle of the runway so the crews were right there, the rescue crews right there to put the fire out. when the cabin crew opened the door they saw the smoke on the left side of the airplane and so they got everybody out the right side, closed that door back up to keep the smoke out of the cabin. crew did a great job in this instance but now it's going to be up to the ntsb to figure out why did this engine actually

7:07 am
but i'm sorry that it has, you know, raised all of these questions. i do take responsibility for having made what is clearly not the best decision. >> reporter: clinton telling abc "world news tonight" anchor david muir -- >> what is the first word when you think of hillary clinton, words like liar, dishonest, un untrustworthy were at the top of the list. >> well, david, obviously i don't like hearing that. i am confident by the end of this campaign people will know they can trust me. >> reporter: with her poll numbers sliding and her friend joe biden contemplating a run against her -- >> would he make a good president? >> well, i like joe biden a lot and i think he is a great vice president, if he gets into this election, there will be lots of time to talk about -- >> would he make a good -- >> well, you know, i think he could be good president, there's no doubt about that. >> reporter: no doubt either about the woman she misses most,
7:08 am
clinton becoming emotional talking about her late mother. >> and she told me every day, you've got to get up and fight for what you believe in no matter how hard it is. and i think about her a lot. i miss her a lot. i wish she were here with me. >> well, there is another headache for hillary clinton this morning. take a look at the latest poll, clinton at 42% there. her lowest standing. so far this election cycle but it's not just that with her numbers slipping, joe biden and bernie sanders now rising and this more than half of all clinton supporters say they would consider switching their support to biden if he does jump in the race. george, her supporters hoping that this apology helps turn these numbers around. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. now the latest on that kentucky county clerk jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. kim davis is free this morning. everyone waiting to see what she does when she returns to work. abc's alex perez is on the scene for us in morehead, kentucky. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning,

8:13 am
happy family vacationing for brady's 38th over the summer with the caption happy birthday my love. we're so blessed to have you in our lives. and just this week posting this, proud papa brady playing with their 2-year-old daughter with the caption, and my heart melts. #biggestlove, #family. >> it shows their relationship was this a song place and no problems in their marriage whatsoever. >> and referring to deflategate, brady says it's been a tough challenging seven months, but the scrutiny he says both on and off the field is something he sees as part of being a public figure. but, of course, after six years of for better or for worse he still calls it an incredible relationship and says he looks forward to playing on thursday night. >> oh. >> keeping a level head about it. >> i kind of miss sacking him. >> you miss sacking him. had to throw that in. >> i had to. >> we miss watch you sack him. >> well, some people don't. thank you, juju. now to our series "breakfast rescue." this morning is all about
8:14 am
muffins and you can grab them on the go but are they a smart choice? abc's becky worley is here with some answers. good morning, becky. >> reporter: good morning, michael. muffins, sweet, filling, homey, like a little piece of grandma sending out into the world each day but wah, wah, these muffins may be a huge contributor to that muffin top you're trying to get under control. from a staple at your morning meeting to grab and go food at the coffee shop, but -- >> you're grabbing and going but you're really not doing yourself any favors. >> reporter: we bought them from starbucks, dunkin' donuts and crossco. what's a food equivalent. >> you'll be so surprised. >> whoa. >> believe it or not -- >> reporter: wait, this ee ways to that? >> that fact, these onion rings have less fat than this muffin. this muffin is weighing in at 32 grams of fat. >> but there's also sugar in here, right. >> absolutely.
8:15 am
let's bring that cooler right on in. >> and the soda. >> reporter: compared to store bought onion rings it's close. the muffin has 32 grams of fat, 40 grabs of sugar and 600 calories. >> imagine an average man or woman around 2,000 calories for the day, 600 calories, boom. right there that's a third of your food intake if you're a woman. >> exactly. >> reporter: the starbucks muffin comes in more modestly at 380 calories with 16 grabs of fat but 30 grams of sugar. from dunkin' donuts this is their reduced fat muffin and does have the lowest fat at 10 grams but piles on 40 grabs of sugar and 410 calories. >> people think they're doing themselves a favor because they're choosing the reduced fat option. >> oh. part of the issue is the size. 30 years ago a muffin was 1.5 ounces. now the starbucks muffin is 4 ounces and this one from costco, the size wasn't posted on the box so i had to call and ask. one muffin they say is 5.75 ounces, almost four times the
8:16 am
size of our '80s muffin but get this, they say a serving is half muffinmakes. starbucks said we're committed to offer ago a swied variety of food in the stores. the starbucks blueberry muffin is a favorite. dunkin' donuts says they offer a wide range of choices including better-for-you items from our ddsmart menu and costco declined to comment. i don't want to be the calorie cops. >> boo! >> i'm ruining your muffin routine. but, hey, that's the point. if you add something to a routine you have to know what you're doing. if you have seven muffins, pumpkin and coffee cake, even more calorie dense, seven a week adds 4,000 calories to your daily ee teen much that's the equivalent of tah-dah, a stick and a half of butter. >> okay, some of us do have a little sweet tooth in the morning so what is an alternate. >> i'll let you do the honors. so one alternate is smaller portion. you'd be surprised. cake, this is cake.
8:17 am
but because it's a smaller portion, that's why it works. thinking about portions is important and, michael, if you would do the honors. >> you eat all three of those. >> no. you're worse than lara. >> like mini muffins. >> my captain obvious comment here. eat a piece of fruit and a teeny tiny mini muffin or biscotti, start with the fruit. it will fill you up. >> yeah. >> sorry do be debbie downer on the muffins. >> come on. look at this. >> it's ridiculous. >> we love what you're doing here, becky. >> we all eat breakfast. top. tomorrow. >> i cannot wait for that. our series stealing celeb secrets, cover girl melissa mccarthy, "people" executive editor kate coyne here to share tips. she knows her stuff. >> yeah, she studied design and fashion in college. her intention was to become a
8:18 am
fashion designer. and then she sort of started dabbling in improv and comedy and the rest is sort of history there. >> yeah. >> started a fashion line at 77. >> so melissa mccarthy 77 is her line and this is not something she just sort of threw her name on and is looking to rake in money. she's a hands-on part of this entire line. she is executing these designs and meticulous about where a seam is running to where a button is placed, something that knees a pleat or a pocket here or there. she's kind of obsessed really. >> she's also meticulous where it will be placed in the store. >> yes. >> talk about that. >> one of the missions she's on and it's really fantastic is that her goal is for all of her sizes and it's important to stress, this is not a plus size line. it's been written up that way. that's wrong. this is an all sizes line 4 through 28. and she wants all of the sizes of her clothes to be in the same
8:19 am
place on the main floor. so this idea that, you know, a woman who might be a slightly larger size can't go shopping with her friends because it's like, bye, see you later are i have to go over to the tire section to where my clothes are, that's crazy and she's calling out a lot of stores on that and demanding all of her sizes be kept together. >> taking action. she has a lot of tips. number one and shouldn't surprise anybody, make it fun. >> yeah, absolutely. you know, what melissa said is that as her sizes changed over the years or her different tastes or ideas changed she never lost her sense of style and what she wants is this idea that you can wake up any day and some days you feel like wearing cheetah princes and leather pants. >> referee day. >> and the next day you want to wake up and feel sort of like a sexy secretary vibe with a big floppy bow tie or something like that that you should be able to mix it up, do whatever you want from day to day that it doesn't
8:20 am
have to be something that's so heavy. >> it lays into her next tip, ignore all the rules. >> exactly. there is no -- she wants to make it very strong that you shouldn't be telling yourself, i can't wear that now because i'm a mom or i can't wear that because i'm over 40 or i can't do that because -- you know, i never -- wear patterns, wear prints, wear whatever you want. >> i love this one. she says pay it forward. >> pay it forward so two of the shirts in her line have messages on them. one says you're doing great and the other one says good for you and that was inspired in part by her daughters who one day were walking with her and saw a man walking down the street with just a completely vulgar saying on his t-shirt and she was inspired to create something that would make other people feel good when they saw it and that they would feel good about putting on. >> we only have five seconds. who is number one on the best dressed -- ? reese witherspoon. look at her on a red carpet and you will know why. stunning. >> go get "people" on newsstands on friday. outside to ginger.
8:21 am
>> we are celebrating everybody on this beautiful, what is t. wednesday morning? yeah, the philadelphia police department, every year we're so
8:22 am
happy to see >> and we like to celebrate every police department across the nation. but specifically you guys are the recruiting unit, right? >> correct, correct. >> just making sure. thank you to the philadelphia pd and let's get in to lara for "pop." thank you, ginger. get on in here.

8:36 am
first african-american woman to grace the cover of american "vogue." more than 500 covers later in a career spanning nearly four decades johnson has more than cemented her place in fashion history. now in her new memoir, "the face that changed it all," johnson is opening up about her early years growing up in buffalo, new york. her meteoric rise to fame as well as her recent return to the headlines in december as one of the more than two dozen women who accused comedian bill cosby of drugging them or sexually assaulting them. >> it was almost like a family member had betrayed me. it was such a huge sense of betrayal for me. these women gave me the courage to come forward. >> reporter: to date cosby has not been charged with a crime in connection to the accusations of drugging and sexual assault and his lawyers have dismissed the allegations. and beverly johnson joins us now. thank you for being here. >> well, thank you for having me. >> we just heard you say in the

8:38 am
traveling the world and working with amazing photographers. i do remember sleeping a lot in between shooting but it was just a wonderful career, of course, what happens with the wonderful career, you have a personal life also, so i got married very young at 19 years old and, you know, i had an ex-husband that didn't get the meaning of ex and that kind of was, you know, a little complicated but basically it was really an extraordinary life. >> extraordinary. extraordinarily glamorous and incredible but also painful. i mean, the drug addiction was real and serious and life-threatening. >> well, absolutely. i think that people and particularly in the '70s, remember it wasn't addictive in that it increased your intelligence. >> made your eyes sparkle. i read -- >> you thought you looked better when you were on drugs. >> and you lost your appetite so i mean we know more now than we did then.
