7:02 am
giant lip-sync partee! our "monster mash" dubsmash contest. we dress up, go head-to-head and you never know what will happen. just go ahead and give the award to lara. go ahead. >> there's a reason why she's not at the desk right now. >> a lot of characters up there, as well. not just outside and that is all coming up. we begin with that disaster averted on a plane in florida. the jet with 101 people on board burst into flames moments before takeoff. nearly two dozen injured. david kerley on the skeeven in ft. lauderdale. good morning, david. >> reporter: those passengers recovering from their injuries and the shock when that engine exploded into flames. we have new pictures of their harrowing escape but the question this morning, why was that jet leaking fuel? overnight, the charred dynamic airways jetliner moved off the taxiway where its engine caught fire.
7:03 am
frantic passengers taking emergency chutes running from the flaming jetliner to safety. 101 people on board the 767. it was rolling on to the runway to take off to venezuela when another pilot sees a fuel leak. >> i don't know if it's fuel, it was fluid leaking out. >> do you copy? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: seconds later the fuel ignites. >> engine's on fire. engine's on fire. >> reporter: passengers hear the explosion. >> look out the window, flames all over the turbine of the plane. >> reporter: they say the crew was calm despite the panic and flames. >> when we go down the slide i couldn't see anyone because we went from the last side so all the smoke. >> reporter: 21 injures most when they were evacuated. soon after flames were extinguished and engine examined and a small leak found. this morning an ntsb team arrives to determine why the jet was leaking fuel just after leaving the gate.
7:04 am
dynamic is a six-year-old airline that operates a half dozen 767s. the airline was up to date with all maintenance requirements, they say. included in one of those maintenance requirements was an order about a fuel pump inside the wing. dynamic says it had agreed to that order and had taken care of all that information. the investigation continues later this morning, george. >> okay, david, thanks very much. you have stephen ganyard standing by. >> abc aviation expert steve ganyard and, steve, people want to know how could this happen? >> good morning, robin. well, in most aviation mishaps it boils down to somebody made a mistake or something broke or a combination of the two. what we think happened in this case is that the fuel line, that big pipe that supplies fuel to the engine became either disconnected or broke somehow and ended up putting hot flammable jet fuel or jet fuel on that hot engine which you saw created this terrible fire. >> the ntsb as we heard in david's report, they are going
7:05 am
to be on the scene investigating. what exactly will they be looking for? >> well, they'll be looking at the maintenance on this particular aircraft but they'll also be looking at the maintenance procedures that this airline uses, but i think there's a bigger point here, robin. you know, when people -- i can't speak to this airline but when people buy a highly discounted airline ticket on an airline they've never heard of before they have to understand that that airline is probably discounting things like maintenance and crew training, as well and, therefore, it's probably discounting your personal safety as well. >> steve, thank you very much. fortunately people were able to get down the chutes. we turn to breaking news overnight. the violent end for a fugitive on the run. alex perez is in burksdale, kentucky, with the latest. >> reporter: all this unfolding in the last few hours. investigators say it was help from thermal imaging cameras that helped them to finally catch up with cook. overnight, a multistate manhunt
7:06 am
for a career criminal ending in gunfire. investigators armed with high-tech gear narrowing down their search in rural kentucky late thursday night to a section of highway 61 finally spotting fugitive floyd ray cook in a ditch line. according to police he was armed and refused to cooperate shooting at officers who returned fire killing him. >> tonight was the scary moment because, you know, we didn't know where he was and when you're searching in the dark that's an uneasy feeling. >> reporter: cook on the run for nearly a week spotted earlier in the day by a neighbor who says he was asking for a ride. his spree starting saturday when he was pulled over by an officer in algood, tennessee, and opened fire. >> shots fired. officer down. >> reporter: a bullet striking the officer in the chest. >> i have help coming. i need you to breathe. talk to me, brother. i okay, i know you're hit. they're coming. >> reporter: the officer luckily wearing a bulletproof vest. hours later cook firing at another officer before escaping
7:07 am
on foot. wednesday night, authorities arresting two of his associates. >> they are extremely dangerous individuals. >> reporter: cook was serving a sentence of more than 100 years when he was paroled in 2009. his rap sheet including rape of a minor, assault and armed robbery. and after several days on high alert many here finally breathing a sigh of relief. investigators say it was tips from the public that led them to cook. >> all right, thanks. the race for president, "your voice, your vote," and the republicans back on the trail marco rubio riding high brushing off attacks from jeb bush who insists his campaign is not on life support. all. good morning, tom. to you. a leaked memo from the bush campaign shows they're trying to paint senator rubio as a, quote, risky vet. i spent some time with the florida senator yesterday and he refuses to attack bush saying he's focused on being president not tearing apart the republican party.
7:08 am
this morning, jeb bush may be down but he's definitely not out. promising his campaign is alive and kicking. >> it's not on life support. we have the most money, we have the greatest organization. we're doing fine. >> reporter: but bush admitting he's not a natural in this new era of politics. >>ing loo, there are two types of politicians, there are the talkers and there are the doers. i wish i could talk as well as some of the people on the stage, the big personalities on the stage. but i'm a doer. >> reporter: the reflection following wednesday night's debate where he went after his friend, senator marco rubio for missing more votes than any other senator this year. >> marco, when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term. >> reporter: but his attack falling flat after rubio anticipating the move stopped bush cold. >> someone has convinced you huh-uh tacking me is going to help you. >> he was onta stage and called on you to resign, personally, what did that feel like? >> you know, these things happen in campaigns, unfortunately. i'm not going to let a campaign change me. i will still have tremendous admiration and affection for
7:09 am
him. >> reporter: the debate coming under criticism from the rnc and front-runner in the latest polls, dr. ben carson saying he's contacting the other campaigns to change the format of the debates. >> debates are supposed to be established to help the people get to know the candidates. what it's turned into is a gotcha! that's silly. >> reporter: now, the effort carson has told us about apparently is gaining steam. the rnc said they'll meet with all the campaigns to re00 evaluate and reset everything when it comes to those debates. >> okay, tom, thanks. let's talk to jon karl about all this. you know a campaign is trouble when the candidate says we're not on life support. >> makes it sound like he was pulling the plug. he sounds positively deflated if you talk to his top advisers. they sound deflated. the case they make, george, is that we have another debate in less than two weeks. he still has plenty of money. that super pac as 80 million left. if you saw this power point presentation they're looking at
7:10 am
going after marco rubio even harder. this portrays rubio as not only inexperienced but ethically challenged. really tough stuff. >> see if he's willing to do that in the next debate. both marco rubio and ted cruz who had a good night trying to capitalize on their performances. >> clearly rubio is the consensus winner but cruz has a lot of signs of early momentum raising more than a million dollars in the 24 hours since that debate. this raises the possibility that you can have a campaign come down to two 44-year-old cuban-americans who both got elected as tea party candidates, really quite fascinating, both freshmen senators and think carson and trump will fade and they both see each other as the main ultimate rivals. >> meantime, donald trump is still the front-runner, jon karl, thanks. he'll be here live in studio next tuesday to talk about his campaign and his new book "crippled america." >> donald trump on tuesday. but now to that runaway military blimp. parts of it are still being removed from the pennsylvania woods where it crash landed and there are still questions about
7:11 am
how it broke free. abc's linsey davis is on the scene for us again this morning. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. some of you may have seen the #blimpdown, well right in the woods behind me is where it actually went down. some parts of the blimp have already been removed and taken back to maryland but a massive recovery effort is still under way. the runaway blimp not out of the woods just yet. the recovery effort is a massive undertaking. first requiring a $175 million balloon be shot. 100 times. >> you may have heard shotgun shots. that is how we are deflating it. >> reporter: while the tethered tail and most sensitive parts of the 10,000 plus pound balloon have all reportedly been removed, the body of the 240-foot blimp is still in this pennsylvania field. >> look at this rope, how long it is. >> gosh. >> it goes over top of the mountain. >> reporter: after traveling 160 miles at roughly 50 miles per
7:12 am
hour the departure from these woods. slower and more anti-climactic than its arrival. after tearing away from its post wednesday, the blimp on the loose sending f-16 fighter jets scrambling. and knocking out power to nearly 30,000 people. >> somebody might want to call 911. >> reporter: eyes no longer scrutinizing the skies but the program itself. some questioning how this blimp paid for with taxpayer dollars part of a nearly $3 billion program used to defend the nation's capital against airborne attacks ended up tattered, torn and twisted in these pennsylvania trees. >> a system so expensive and so sophisticated should have had some sort of failsafe systems that would never have allowed the balloon to just drift away. >> reporter: the technology is designed to find low-flying, fast-moving small threats but some argue it's too expensive and ineffective, especially in its current condition. there are no roads leading up to the site so what remains will
7:13 am
likely taken out by helicopter either today or tomorrow but how this became detached is now under federal investigation. george. >> many more questions to answer. thanks very much. powerful winds in the southwest, as well. causing a lot of damage, ginger. >> i mean, this is in los angeles, you can see the trees on top of the cars and we've got video too from los angeles county, ventura county, up in the mountains, the worst but some down at the ground. santa ana wind event through today. anywhere from the ridges of the san bernardino mountains up to santa barbara and a wind advisory to las vegas. that's the back of the storm. the front already dropping flash flooding around san antonio, a tornado warning earlier this, mo. that same region that got just walloped last weekend could pick up to 7 inches. i know you need a trick-or-treat forecast so i have that coming up in the nation's weather. >> thank you. amy's other top stories. a real scare at a silicon valley hotel. >> a dozen people rushed to the hospital overnight after a
7:14 am

we are disguising her voice. >> what he did to me, made me feel like i didn't belong on this planet and that i would be better off dead than having to deal with the terrible things that every day were thrown in my direction. >> reporter: labrie's defense argues the encounter was consensual. in august, the jury acquitted him of the most serious charge, felony rape. but found him guilty of misdemeanor sexual assault and of using e-mail and facebook to lure the underage girl. still, labrie won't go directly to jail. he's out on bail while he appeals leaving court embracing his parents with a smile. and labrie's defense attorney telling me he may appeal that one-year sentence and if he's successful labrie may never step foot in a jail cell. george. >> okay. gio, thanks very much. let's start there, dan abrams is here with us. any chance on appeal? >> he's got a chance but it's an uphill battle for the defense.
7:44 am
certainly with regard to the year sentence on the misdemeanor, sort of the strongest argument the defense had was that the felony here that gio was talking about luring a child to have sex by use of a computer was never intended for this sort of crime, this sort of incident. even that argument is going to be tough on appeal. so no question the defense has an uphill battle and as we were just talking about the question will be at some point does he want to just get in there, get this over with and serve his time. >> right to the bottom line, one year in year. a young guy. just go this and get it over with >> that's the decision they'll have to make. there was some arguing in court after the sentence about certain motions and rules and the judge at one point said, look, by the way, if you do certain things here, you could potentially put the suspended sentence on the table. remember, he was also sentenced to a lot more time in prison but that was all suspended as long
7:45 am
as he behave, as hong as that's not a problem. as long as he doesn't get into trouble he won't have to serve that other time. >> what does it mean being registered as a sex offender. >> it means that for at least 15 years if not more, he's going to have to write down any time he goes anywhere, moves anywhere. he's going to have to file part of the registry, some neighbors will snow, depending on the local area, though, depends on the specific restricts. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. coming up, special halloween "the speed feed." aladdin gets a modern twist. a little hovering magic carpet. who is the genie behind the costume? everyone in times square getting ready for the lip-sync contest.
