7:03 am
worrisome eye on patricia not only for folks in mexico but maybe coming in this direction. it's been raining heavily all night long. some of the roads this dallas having a hard time dealing with that but without a doubt last 24 hours the hardest hit area has been western texas. overnight, storms sweeping across texas. skies illuminating from continuous bolts of lightning. vehicles stalled out from drivers making some poor decisions. this pickup pushing a car through flooded streets. >> it's floating. >> and in the town of ramkin. >> there she goes and the rv. >> reporter: new video showing the impact. trailers picked up and carried away in floodwaters. we are just getting started with this event. we were here in may during those epic floods when the trinity river was covering this spillway and coming up to this bank. hasn't rained much since but with part of patricia coming
7:04 am
this way and much of the gulf coast, beginner, as you know is very much worried about damaging flooding. back to you. >> rob, thank you. the national weather service in san antonio actually just put out a statement saying up to 15 inches of rain this coming weekend so that could be also very disastrous. so much more coming up. >> they have a lot to brace for in texas. okay, ginger, thanks very much. now to hillary clinton's showdown on capitol hill. more than eight hours of testimony. republicans saying they were doing their duty to investigate a serious security breach. democrats complaining it's a waste of money after seven previous congressional investigations. abc's jon karl on point over a long day. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. this hearing went on so long, 11 hours including the breaks, that by the end, clinton supporters were tweeting with the #freehillary. republicans raised serious questions about security at benghazi but clinton emerged largely unscathed. the unprecedented grilling of a presidential candidate lasted into the night. >> parliamentary inquiry, how late are we going tonight?
7:05 am
? so far today i've said good morning, good afternoon -- >> you all serving breakfast, congressman. >> let me go ahead and say good night. >> reporter: an 11-hour hearing of intense questioning, the occasional break for water a. even a cough drop. plenty of partisan bickering. >> there are people, frankly, in both parties who have suggested that this investigation is about you. let me assure you it is not. >> we're better than that and we're better than using taxpayer dollars to try to destroy a campaign. >> reporter: there was political theater with props including piles of clinton's much discussed personal e-mail. >> libya, benghazi, chris stevens, the staff there, they seem to fall off your radar in 2012 and the situation is getting much worse in 2012. >> if you were to be in my office in the state department i didn't have a computer. i did not do the vast majority of my work on e-mail. >> reporter: the underlying issue, of course, was serious.
7:06 am
republicans repeatedly asking, why the state department had denied several requests for more security in the months before the 2012 attack in benghazi. >> you had two ambassadors that made several, several requests and here's basically what happened to their requests. they were torn up. >> well, that's just not true, congressman. many were responded to. >> reporter: throughout the day-long testimony a confident clinton showed a wide range of emotions. sometimes frustrated. >> that was a very long question and i think the answer is no. >> reporter: and at other types appearing bored or amused by the spectacle. >> okay, and who else was at your home? were you alone? >> i was alone, yes. >> the whole night? >> well, yes, the whole night. >> i don't know why that's funny. i mean did you have any in-person briefings? i don't find it funny at all. >> i'm sorry. a little note at levity at 7:15. >> reporter: when reflecting on the loss of four americans
7:07 am
chris stevens, clinton was emotional. >> i've lost more sleep than all of you put together. i have been racking my brain about what more could have been done. >> reporter: now back to the campaign trail. she has a rally in virginia in afternoon and tomorrow we'll see clinton's campaign, bill clinton's campaign trail debut and join hillary in iowa at a rally that also features katy perry. >> thanks, jon. we are joined by republican presidential candidate carly fiorina. thank you for joining us this morning. miss fiorina. so, hillary getting pretty good reviews even from some conservatives. "new york post" calls it an un unmitigated triumph. another, it turned out not to be a big deal. good news for hillary clinton. what's your take? >> i think she did reasonably well. i hi it demonstrates that she won't be held accountable until we have a nominee and a general
7:08 am
election debate who will hold her accountable. she never answered a fundamental question and the fundamental question is this, knowing that this was a purposeful terrorist attack on the night it occurred why did you go the next morning and address the american people and talk about a videotape that didn't represent the values of america and why did you continue to do that over the bodies of the fallen and for many weeks thereafter? she referenced in her testimony other terrorist attacks and the difference, of course, was in those other terrorist attacks the administration immediately came out and said, this is a terrorist attack and we will secret tri because. mrs. clinton never said that. >> you say she wasn't held accountable so did republicans on the committee fall down on the job? >> well, you know, i think there were lots of democrats on that committee who were focused very much on salvaging their nominee in this regard and i have to say, i'm sure that there are republicans and democrats who were politically motivated but i think trey gowdy has done a superb job of being a very
7:09 am
careful examiner here. and if you just do a little thought exercise, if the shoe were on the other foot and she had been a republican secretary of state i'm sure the democrats would be holding hearings. >> you got a big bounce after the last debate. let's talk about your campaign but now dropped back to the middle of the pack and there's a series of headlines questioning what happened to carly fiorina? what's your answer to that? >> oh, wow, george, you know, you're a political pro so you know we're 100 days out and remember when i launched my campaign on may 4th, on your show, as a matter of fact, nobody gave me a chance including perhaps you. first august 6th debate i wasn't on the stage. the second debate i had to fight my way on the stage. at this third debate i'm number four on the stage so i'm feeling good about my momentum, actually. >> how are you going to get it back? >> oh, i've never lost it. i'm in the middle of the pack. someone that no one gave any chance to, frankly. so i'm feeling very good about our ground game. very good about the momentum that we have in key states and, of course, we have another
7:10 am
debate coming up. i remain the least well-known candidate on the field. 40% of republican voters still don't know who i am so i still have a long way to introduce myself to the american people but what all the polling data shows is that when people see me for the first time they want to know more about me and when they see me for the second or the third time, that translates into support and that's why we have so much momentum. >> moon "time," ben carson is really surging. new "des moines register" poll puts him ahead. he and donald trump sucking up majority support. what does that tell you about what republican voters are looking for? >> well, you know what it tells me, george, what you and i talked about on may 4th. you asked a question, was my -- the fact that i never held a political office a liability an i answered you and said, no, it's a huge asset because the reality is most voters, democrats, independents and republicans, are sick of the professional political class. >> carly fiorina, thanks very much for your time this morning.
7:11 am
let's bring jon karl back and, jon, i mentioned that "des moines register" poll showing ben carson surging to the lead in iowa. >> yeah, and what's significant here, george, is it's also the second poll that shows donald trump not in the lead for three solid months trump has led in every major poll, nationally and in every poll in the early states. now you have two back-to-back polls showing that he is no longer the front-runner in iowa, the big factor there, george, evangelical christian, only a third of iowa republicans in that poll thought he is a committed christian. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. more on the race for president and the benghazi hearing sunday on "this week." >> all right, george, now to a daring hostage rescue that left one american commando dead and saved dozens of prisoners held in iraq by isis. we've seen the brutal terror group release execution videos online and these prisoners were just hours away from being the latest victims. abc's martha raddatz is in the region with all the details. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, amy.
7:12 am
this is the first u.s. combat death since the u.s. began battling isis last year and the first death since president obama declared the war in iraq over in 2011. it was a nighttime rescue that quickly turned deadly. five u.s. helicopters carrying u.s. special operations forces and kurdish troops descended on a prison found in northern iraq. inside, isis hostages believed to be facing imminent mass execution. u.s. air strikes had cleared roads in ss and nearby buildings to prevent reinforcement but as soon as the rescue teams approached an intense fight broke out and the u.s. special operations soldier was shot and later died. 70 iraqi hostages were rescued and the kurds say 20 isis fighters killed. but the battle is raising questions about the role u.s.
7:13 am
troops play in iraq after president obama had said u.s. troops would not be in a combat role. >> our mission in iraq is to train, advise and assist mission. they have the right to defend themselves, those u.s. forces, but this was a unique circumstance. >> reporter: the pentagon says in this case, lives were at risk. although it does not appear the u.s. knew who the hostages were or how many there were. george. >> okay, martha, thanks very much. that footage she showed looks like combat. service. two officers caught sleeping on the job one at the white house and abc's pierre thomas covers the secret service and the bad >> reporter: good morning, george. yes, they do much the secret service hoped to turn the page on negative headlines after successfully protecting the pope but with this new embarrassment critics say not so fast. two uniformed officers caught sleeping on the job. one while on duty at a foreign diplomat's residence. the other at the white house.
7:14 am
a new inspector general management alert claims inadequate staffing and scheduling played a role in the officer fatigue and may pose an immediate or potential danger to u.s. secret service officers and those whom they protect. >> this unfortunately was not just one or two people falling asleep on the job. it's a consequence of bad management. >> reporter: but the secret service objects saying the officers were disciplined and that the sleeping officers and only them were at fault. it's been a difficult stretch of headlines for the secret service. >> right now. >> reporter: that fence jumper got inside the white house. this following allegations of excessive drinking and a prostitution scandal. some secret service officials believe the unrelenting scrutiny is unfair but others say it comes with the territory protecting the leader of the amy. >> all right, pierre, thanks so much. stunning words from the judge in that new mexico road
7:15 am
that story in just 30 seconds. the alleged killer in that road rage incident that left a 4-year-old girl dead is behind bars this morning. the judge calling it one of the worst crimes he's ever seen. abc's ryan owens has that story. >> do you have any questions about anything i've said? >> no, sir. >> reporter: those are the only two words uttered by the accused killer of lilly garcia but the judge had plenty to say to tony torrez. >> this did possibly one of the most wanton and atrocious acts alleged in the his think of interest city. >> reporter: he confessed to the
7:16 am
shooting which prosecutors say happen when the accused murderer cut off lilly's father alan on interstate 40 in albuquerque forcing him out of his lane. torrez allegedly pulled out a gun and fired four shots at his truck. one of them striking 4-year-old lilly in the head. >> she would grab your heart. she's going to be missed by a lot of people. >> reporter: in court prosecutors detailed torrez's violent criminal history which includes another arrest for road rage. court documents show he pulled a gun on a driver in 2006. that case was dismissed. >> the daughter is not conscious. >> reporter: police say at torrez's home they found the red toyota they've been looking for in the garage as well as the gun they say was used to kill lilly. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, albuquerque, new mexico. >> just beyond tragic, thank you. and now we turn to tom llamas with the other top stories starting with a deadly shooting on a campus in tennessee.
7:17 am

8:14 am
more. >> reporter: gray, 100% not. >> reporter: you covered up those pesky gray hairs. wrinkles. >> reporter: battled wrinkles your weight. all in an effort to hide your years. but at the end of the day it could be your hands that reveal your true age. >> no, no. >> reporter: just like sutton foster's character trying to look half her age on the show "younger." >> the hands give away your age more than anything else. it's very important to rejuvenate the hands so that they match the rest of your body. >> reporter: this morning, doctors say there is a new cure for your rapidly maturing mitts. >> it's a filler that is made of calcium for rejuvenation of the hands. >> reporter: recently radiesse claims to give you a hand in more ways than one. >> it camouflages the vein, tendons and adds volume but it also triggers your own body to make collagen as well. >> reporter: even younger women

8:16 am
going on aging our hands. >> besides losing volume, there are two main changes that occur in the hands as we age. so first the skin actually gets paper thin as a result of losing collagen. not only do they look crepey they become very fragile, crepey like cigarette paper. very easy to tear, to rip. to bruise. you know, as they become so fragile but the other thing that happens we develop brown marks on the hand. most call those liver spots. that's a misnomer. they have nothing to do with the liver. their true name is solar lentigos. they come out as a result of sun exposure. >> there are also uv rays that people don't think about, correct, when getting manicures. >> many don't realize getting regular gel manicures actually speeds up the agesing process. so during a gel manicure, you know, you have to place your hand underneath that lamp in order to cure or set that polish. but both uv lamps and l.e.d. lamp, you know, those uv-free
8:17 am
proven to emit uva rays that lead to skin cancer, aging. get a safe gel mani use a broad spectrum before you put it underneath. this is my favorite or get fingerless gloves and upf 50. >> there's over the counter things you can use that i just used. >> look for one with vitamin c. this is skinceuticals. >> face or hands. >> you also want to look for products that contain retinol. this is glow by dr. brandt and lytera. ask for retin-a or hydro -- >> all things you normally put on your face. >> great to treat your hands like your face. i always say it's one cosmetic unit, your chest and hands. have to treat them all the same. >> great advice. now i'm thinking all about that. dr. whitney bowe, i appreciate it.
