big way. nick carter blowing the doors off the ballroom with a performance that had the entire audience on its feet. bindi irwin with an emotional tribute to her father. >> what shaped me the most was would probably be when my dad passed away. you know, it's been nine years. >> and gary busey says good-bye to the ballroom and opens up just to "gma" this morning. when you made me cry and good morning, america. a lot to get to this tuesday. thank goodness the rain has stopped in the carolinas. but the threat has not passed. take a look at this drone video right here. it shows just how powerful these floods are. you know, nine dams have been breached already. many neighborhoods still underwater. it is causing billions of dollars in damage. >> as you know, george, the water is still rising this morning. and will be for days. you see the map showing the

7:04 am
robin. this is the low country. it is low and it's flat so it floods during heavy rainfalls, let alone epic ones. schools are still closed today. there's still some water in the streets but what we're worried about is all that water will be coming from the upstate. charleston very vulnerable especially this spot not one the, not two but three rivers converge and this is one that will be rising. we are looking at rainfall amounts estimates over the last couple of days of 4 trillion gallons of water falling across the state. a lot has to come through the rivers and get to the ocean so our concern goes from flash flooding and tidal flooding to the rising rivers and the potential for them cresting and flooding mean more of the low robin. >> thank you. 4 trillion gallons. >> let's dig into that with ginger. lots of flood warnings out there. >> that's right, not just in charleston but several of the red marks where you see the rivers either at crest or will still rise as we go toward the
7:05 am
end of the week. coastal flood advisories from maryland all the way to jacksonville, florida, as that storm pushes that water on to land. fortunately we see more sun and drying out through the week. one interesting little note that we wanted to leave you with, you can see the storm joaquin way in the bahamas and see how it tapped into the moisture. south and north carolina just getting inundated. >> thank you. you mentioned joaquin. now to the race against time to find survivors of that cargo ship sunk by hurricane joaquin. the coast guard has now searched an area bigger than california and narrowed it down to two debris fields where they found a body and a badly damaged lifeboat. abc's linzie janis has the latest and joins us now from miami. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. overnight the families of the crew were briefed by the u.s. coast guard and the company that owns the "el faro" for 3 1/2 hours. many of them are feeling angry, but mostly they are clinging to
7:06 am
ones are still alive. overnight the coast guard desperately searching for survivors of the "el faro," their focus now on two giant debris fields near where they believe the cargo ship sank in 15,000 feet of water. >> we've modified our search efforts to focus more on potential people in the water. >> reporter: "el faro"'s last known position 35 miles off crooked island in the bahamas, crews already finding one of the ship's two lifeboats. empty and barely afloat as well as several survival suit, one containing the body of a crew member. but with ocean currents quickly pushing the debris further north away from land, searchers unable to take the time to recover the remains. >> when we have reports of other life raft boats we need to get out there because if we don't right away it could sink. we might not be able to relocate it. >> reporter: the hope is the crew is wearing these immersion suits that could keep them alive in the water for days.
7:07 am
but putting them on in the middle of that hurricane would have been extremely difficult. each of the 33 crew member has one of the so-called gumby suits which in warm waters could keep them alive for four to five days but as family members cling to hope, anger growing over how the ship ended up in joaquin's path. >> they should have held that boat back at least a day or so. >> reporter: overnight the company that owns the "el faro" saying the captain had been trying to bypass the storm. >> his plan was a sound plan that would have enabled him to pass around the storm. >> reporter: but, of course, the ship losing power and ending up in the middle of that hurricane. the ntsb today headed this way to begin its investigation. george. >> okay, thanks. we turn to the midair medical emergency. the captain of an american airline jet dies in flight from phoenix to boston. co-pilot takes controls and our aviation correspondent david kerley has the story.

7:09 am
one at the foot of the stairs. >> we thought he wasn't feeling well. we had no idea he had passed. it was extremely shocking. >> reporter: no announcement is made immediately but some realize what happened. >> we had to wait for the body to be removed from the plane. it was pretty -- it was pretty intense. >> reporter: despite the un untimely death praise for the co-pilot's handling of the harrowing situation. >> whatever happened in that cockpit, none of us will know but that co-pilot did a great job. >> reporter: any co-pilot and captain are trained to the same standards to be able to fly by themselves in an emergency. now, the first officer brought in another crew to take the passengers to boston. >> does this happen often. occurrence. we talked to the faa. in the past 20 years there have only been eight other incidents like this one. >> okay, david kerley, thanks very much. >> and the fact that the passenger has no idea really professionalism. now to a miracle on the

7:11 am
>> no, i thought we hit a tree branch or something and they were slowing down to make sure nothing was further ahead in the track and then once i felt all the jostling i knew something had to be happening. >> reporter: passengers helping each other get out of those train cars. some even breaking windows to escape. experts say those passengers probably walked away mostly unharmed because the train cars were intact, unlike these crushed cars in the deadly amtrak crash in philadelphia last may where eight people were killed and at least 200 were injured. and it turns out these tracks here were recently upgraded. in fact, the speed limit was raised from 55 to 59 but right now there is no reason to believe we're told that anyone is at fault, george. >> okay, gio, thanks very much. could have been so much worse. we have the race for president now, "your voice, your vote" and hillary clinton gearing up for next week's first democratic debate releasing her first national tv ad getting emotional on the issue of gun control and jon karl tracking it all. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george.

7:14 am
george, hillary clinton as secretary of state supported these trade talks but she has not taken a position on this agreement yet as a candidate for president. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. to amy with today's other top stories starting with the surprising offer from edward snowden. >> that's right, former nsa contractor edward snowden says he has volunteered to return to the united states and go to prison for leaking top secret documents on government surveillance but snowden tells the bbc he is still waiting to hear back from u.s. officials. snowden has been living in exile in moscow for two years. well, the new escalation in the crisis in syria, russia is reportedly sending ground troops into that country to support dictator bashar al assad. meanwhile, nato has issued a stern warning to moscow after a russian warplane violated turkey's airspace. nato's leader saying he doubts that violation was just an accident. new details about a disaster unfolding in guatemala where at least 15 people have been killed

8:12 am
caleb logan bratayley passed away of natural causes. this has come as a shock to all of us. words cannot describe how much we miss him. the cause of death still a mystery but the family says accident or injury have been ruled out. instead they say the medical examiner's initial findings point to an undetected condition. today the parents told abc news there's a family history of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick and often goes undiagnosed because they rarely have symptoms. in a small number of people the thickened heart muscle can disrupt the heart's electrical system creating abnormal heart rita ships that can be life-threatening. his fans naturally are stunned. many of those fans are kids themselves now asking their own parents questions about a show their parents weren't necessarily following. online, more than 200,000

that over a recent five-year span the number of kids and teens playing team sports declined nearly 4% and that participation in all sports in general is down 10% and some experts are placing the majority of the blame on pressure from parents. >> parents are getting increasingly competitive about showing that their kids are number one in everything and sports is just another example. >> reporter: one professor at george washington university surveyed nearly 150 children asking what they found fun about sports. the results, kids reacting positively to team dynamics trying hard and learning. on a list of 81 factors contributing to their happiness, they put winning all the way down at 48. >> when there's such an overemphasis on winning, it really takes away the enjoyment and fun experience from the kids. >> reporter: mother of two, lisa harper values hard work and discipline in sports. >> it translates into school and
8:16 am
>> reporter: so how do we get kids back on the feel enjoying athletics again? experts say a shift in parents' out todays and expectations could do the trick. >> parents should take a step back and really listen to what their kids want. for overly competitive parents change. >> laughter here in the crowd. it's never too late but if you're thinking, hey, it's just sports. homework is more important, don't forget a multitude of studies show kids who play sports have higher test score, go on to complete college, have higher incomes and the emotional and physical well-being. >> and learning what teamwork is. >> i don't know where i'd be without playing sports. so many areas of your life. >> i was shocked at how low kids put winning there. >> me too and yet parents put it high and shows you where the disconnect is. our series "the new beauty boom" from face-lifts to tummy

using the models on screen for years. year. but doctors tepper and garfind say taking that image from the everything. how do the patients react when you're able to show them these kinds of models? >> now when we can show them a 3d sculpture of their face with their new nose is a completely different world for us. >> reporter: a new world that put 30-year-old margaret lembo at ease when she needed nose work to help a sinus condition. dr. tepper offered to smooth out the bump on her nose and relieved to see the 3d after model before the surgery. >> i can actually hold it and see it. these are my eyes, nose,lys. a whole complete different >> reporter: some patients take the sculptures home to get their family's opinion and doctors use them as a guide in the operating room. surgeon. i think it's made my partners better and i think our patients are happier. >> reporter: the molds range

8:20 am
see it here in a different dimension and this can be very, very important for patients to really understand, this is what i will look like. >> to be able to see it like that. >> right. >> is there any downside to this technology? >> the downside you might be disappointed. plastic surgery is as much an art as science but this is where their precision comes into play. >> okay, so if you can afford this. >> right. >> sore you just would rather not go under the knife what are some options. >> first you have to understand of the anatomy behind aging. when you look at it think of it in terms of three layers of skin, the bugging of our aging is due to sun damage and that will produce feckreckle, sun spots and wrinkles. a layer deeper as we age we have a loss of volume. we lose fat, collagen from keeping our face plump and then if you look one layer deeper, we have a sagging of these ligaments they're called retaining ligaments of the face and they're really the things
