7:01 am
unruly passenger attacks a crew member. >> sit down. sit down. enough. you don't put your hands on my flight attendant. >> how he took control and stopped what could have been a dangerous confrontation. >> we do say good morning, america. good to have >> thank you. new polls showing hillary clinton surging as donald trump battles attacks from both sides of the aisle over his comments about that military family. yeah, continued through the day yesterday. we have an exclusive with miss teen usa. karlie hay is here live taking on the controversy about those offensive tweets. severe weather on move, missouri roads underwater and you see missouri right there. alerts from las vegas to st. louis and ginger, of course, is tracking it all. >> there are pockets of flash flooding.
7:02 am
inches very quickly. ocean city, maryland, the picture behind me and that picture out of missouri, east of kansas city and now that line has moved to the east. there are warnings this morning, 4 inches plus have fallen west of st. louis. watching there, also in the southwest with that monsoon flow, 3 plus inches falls in hours and you got trouble, 90% development for this. it would be earl if it got through parts >> i know you're keeping an eye on it. that unprecedented warning about the zika virus. the cdc advising pregnant women to avoid a popular neighborhood in miami. so far at least 14 cases have been transmitted by infected mosquitoes in that area. there have been more than 1,600 travel-related cases across the country. and more than 400 pregnant women have been infected. abc's dr. richard besser is in miami, has the latest for us. good morning, dr. besser.
7:03 am
that zika is continuing to spread in this neighborhood, public health has done something they've never done before telling some people to stay away but with all the travel people are doing, they don't believe this will be the last time that happens. here in this florida neighborhood, just one square mile north of downtown miami, 14 cases of zika have been transmitted by local mosquitoes and the cdc has this warning for pregnant women. stay away. apparently the first time it has continental u.s. ever. >> we believe there's still individuals that are at risk in that one-mile square radius. >> reporter: so health officials are testing thousands of residents here in the wynnewood arts district, one of the busiest neighborhoods in the city spraying for mosquito, delivering zika prevention kits, bedding nets and treatments for standing water. >> just doing a neighborhood sweep to make sure there's no mosquito breeding. >> reporter: many of the
7:04 am
testing. health officials are expecting more cases will arise. the virus most dangerous for pregnant women. >> have you taken any steps around your home to cut down on mosquitoes? >> patio furniture, everything inside. because if it rains and you have your chair, you know, sitting up, it can have standing water. >> just making sure none of my plants have water that's just been sitting there. >> one of the big worries here that the mosquito appears to be they're using and will make control efforts difficult. what's surprised me talking to people here, all the concerns from public health, people seem to be going about their lives and don't seem to be changing behavior. robin. >> all right, dr. besser, thank you. joining us now with more is the director of the cdc, dr. tom frieden. dr. frieden, thank you for your time this morning and this is so alarming to a lot of people because it is a fairly small
7:05 am
continental u.s. since polio which has raised a lot of eyebrows and people want to know do you feel that you're going to have to increase the area? >> only time will tell, robin. this is really a new phenomenon. we've never seen a mosquito-borne illness that could cause a birth defect and right now there is this very specific area north of downtown miami where zika is spreading in that community so we're advising pregnant women not to go t and pregnant women who have to live or work there to do everything possible to prevent mosquito bites. >> four cases were announced on friday and then ten more on monday and some are saying why wasn't an advisory issued earlier? >> what we realized over the weekend was that the mosquito counts were not coming down as we had liked so we haven't achieved good mosquito control in that area. and we now have our top experts on the ground working with the top folks in florida to figure
7:06 am
to control mosquito. >> i know you said that mosquito control there in miami has not worked as you had hoped. why not? >> well, there are three different possibilities. first, it could be that the mosquitoes there are resistant to the insecticides being used. unfortunately, there's no quick test for that and can take a week or three or four weeks to figure that out for sure. second, it may be there are breeding sites that haven't been eliminated. standing water where mosquitoes continue third, it is also the case that this is a really tough mosquito to control. this is an unusual neighborhood or an emerging neighborhood. it's mixed use. it has industrial, business and residential and that makes mosquito control very econcompl. >> no treatment, no vaccine as of right now and the consequences could be quite dire so this is something that people really need to take seriously. >> it is and it's not just about this neighborhood.
7:07 am
mosquito is present, 30 state, generally in the south of the u.s., women who are pregnant really need to do everything they can to protect themselves from mosquito bites and that's difficult putting on deet multiple times on exposed skin, wearing long sleeves and long pant, staying indoors, all these things reduce the risk of mosquito bites. >> we can't hear them enough. dr. frieden, thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> advisory in the continental u.s. since polio. we move on to the race for the white house. in you polls showing a big convention bounce for hillary clinton as donald trump doubles down in his fight with the muslim parents of a fallen soldier and steps up attacks on hillary clinton. comparing her now to the devil. abc's tom llamas is on the trail with trump in harrisburg, pennsylvania. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. donald trump calling hillary clinton the devil is a first and this comes at the same type he's
7:08 am
billionaire, even the president over a back and forth with the family of a fallen u.s. soldier. overnight, donald trump warning of the possibility of a rigged election. >> and i'm telling you, november 8th we better be careful because that election is going to be rigged and i hope the republicans are watching closely or it's going to be taken away from us. >> reporter: at a campaign event in pennsylvania he took his attacks on hillary clinton to a diabolical level, saying this senator bernie sanders' endorsement of clinton. >> but he made a deal with the devil. she's the devil. >> reporter: but it's trump's attacks on a gold star family that spoke out at the democratic convention that continue to get him in trouble. >> have you even read the united states constitution? >> reporter: senator john mccain calling out trump saying just because trump is the gop nominee doesn't mean he can, quote, defame those who are the best
7:09 am
star mother is out of bounds. trump's running mate governor mike pence put on the spot during a town hall by a mother whose son serves in the u.s. air force. >> will there ever be a point in time to look trump in the eye and tell him enough is enough? >> reporter: that mother getting booed from others at the town hall for asking her question. >> captain khan is an american hero. family. we cherish all of our gold star families. >> reporter: president obama also alluding to the controversy praising all the gold star families. >> that our gold star families have made a sacrifice that most of us cannot even begin to imagine. >> reporter: and fellow billionaire warren buffett who's supporting hillary clinton saying this about trump. >> have you no sense of decency, sir? >> reporter: still trump says he has a right to defend himself. >> horrible things were said
7:10 am
and i will always respond. >> reporter: as trump fighting with that gold star family "the new york times" has a front page investigation looking into the numerous deferments, draft deferments during the vietnam war by donald trump, mostly for education but one of them for bone spurs in his heels. now, this came at a time when trump was a very active athlete and had just picked up the game of golf, trump has said that condition has since healed and he has acknowledged some guilt for not serving. let's talk to our little analysts matthew dowd and jon karl. jon, let me begin with you and that "the new york times" account. one of the things trump has said many times in the past that he received deferments and was ultimately kept out of the draft by a high lottery number. "the new york times" calls that account into question. >> it sure does, george. trump has said that he had a phenomenal draft number and that's why ultimately he was kept out of the war. but this "new york times" investigation says he had five
7:11 am
spurs, according to "the times" would have made it virtually impossible for him to get drafted. >> okay and, matt, we now have a series of polls showing hillary clinton's bounce coming out of this convention and a lead in the six to eight-point range. >> yeah, you know, we've saw -- we saw donald trump get a slight bump but hillary clinton got a bigger bump. it has less to do with the convention than the controversy that erupted around donald trump all self bone spurs and more about shooting himself in the foot over and over and over again. >> put on your political consultant hat. you've worked for both democrats and republicans. if donald trump called you in what would you tell him to do to fix this. >> the first thing i would say is don't be yourself but that would be i think difficult in the course of this. he has to get some level of discipline and quit reacting to people. he has to get on his message and quit reacting to every single person that he seems to get some level of slight in the course of
7:12 am
it's not that he's losing votes he's capping himself at a level he can't win at so in order to win he's got to get disciplined and stay on message. >> jon, we saw him last night talking about the prospect of a rigged election. >> yeah, this is something else. he said this before. after the 2012 election, he had a series of tweets that he said that this was clearly the result of a rigged election, romney's loss, but he's setting up the possibility of if he loses, saying it was because he was jon karl, matthew dowd, thank you very much. >> all right, george, we move on to new questions about the deadly hot air balloon crash in u.s. his that that killed 16 people. the pilot had been convicted of drunken driving four times. abc's david kerley is in lockhart, texas, with more on this. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. a foggy morning here in texas. you can see the memorial that's been set up, the families were here at the site yesterday. there are no indications that
7:13 am
do with this accident. but it raises broad questions about licensing as investigators try to figure out why this balloon crashed. this morning, the covered remains of the balloon and gondola are in dallas for further examination as we learn more about the past of the pilot at the controls. 49-year-old skip nichols had been arrested four types for drunk driving and served time in prison twice. a former girlfriend said he was a recovering alcoholic. balloon pilots are not required to hold an faa but they are expected to self-report convictions. safety officials say that's not enough. >> should they be held to a different standard than somebody who is flying an airplane for hire on air tour operations or helicopters, so, so we do see this discontinuity. >> reporter: investigators say evidence suggests after flying above the clouds and fog the pilot was trying to land when the gondola hit and then ran along the top transmission lines
7:14 am
about ten stories to the ground saturday killing all 16 on board. now, investigators had hoped the ground crew, the tracking crew would actually be able to tell them whether or not the conditions were like this when the balloon came down. they knew it was coming down but didn't know where and actually drove around for an hour looking for the balloon after it had already crashed, robin. >> thank you. amy with the morning's other top stories starting with an fbi employee accused of working for china. pleaded guilty to acting as a secret agent for china. kun shan chun worked in the new york office and accused of using top secret clearance to leak the identity of a special agent to the chinese government. he is expected to face two years in prison. the u.s. military expanding its air campaign against isis launching air strikes in northern libya targeting isis vehicles and tanks. president obama approved that military action at the request
7:15 am

7:16 am
mcdonald's. >> simple. finally this is going to make everybody feel good. you don't have to feel guilty the next time you forget to floss. the government is acknowledging there is little evidence flossing prevents gum disease or cavities. a study by the associated press describes evidence of its benefits as weak and unreliable. i mean i still think it's eye hygienic but apparently you don't have to floss. >> especially not while you're driving, please. >> you just made so many >> i know. the guilt of years and years of not flossing suddenly gone. >> poof. >> bopoof. >> god to have you back. an american airlines pilot coming to the rescue tackling an allegedly drunken disorder will go passenger facing charges for attacking a flight attendant and threatening the whole crew. it was caught on a cell phone and abc's nick watt has our story. >> sit down. sit down. enough. you don't put your hands on my flight attendant.

7:35 am
and help fix this? >> well, you know, people go through these obstacles. i've gone through my own personal struggles and everyone has their own personal struggles but this doesn't give you an excuse to use this language or any bad language at all and it goes to show that it can come back and hurt you and it has definitely hurt me on the inside forever saying it has hurt other people, as well. >> good luck with it. thanks, karlie. thanks for coming in. >> all right, george. now to a remarkable survival story. a paraglider plunging 150 feet to the ground after his engine failed now saying it's a miracle he is alive speaking out exclus exclusively on "gma" and linsey davis has his story. >> reporter: it began as just another day for damien leroy. paragliding over his beloved south florida beaches. >> it was just a great day to go do the sport we love.

what goes on during the commercial breaks. time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by with more on today's top stories. our man t.j. is here at the table. >> yeah. >> we know it's big. >> oh, it's big when i come here. >> yeah, we'll get to your story in a moment. first lawmakers are taking aim at pokemon go. new york governor andrew cuomo trying to keep potential predators away from it announcing he's restricting registered sex offenders on parole from playing after young gamers were found pokemon in the vicinity of known ex-cons. our chief legal analyst dan abrams is here to weigh in on this. this is really some serious stuff here and governor cuomo went on to actually send a letter to the makers of the game asking how they can help keep sex offenders from playing the game legally. is this effective. >> yeah, well, look, first of all i'm more concerned about the people that aren't registered than the ones who are registered when it comes to something like this. and secondly, you know, there's
7:41 am
away from a sex offender's home. that to me feels like politic, what is real and is a real concern is in the game the lure aspect of the game, the fact that you can actually pay to get people to come to you and there have already been potential crimes committed by people trying to lure people in the middle of the night to remote places. that's a concern with regard to protecng i would expect as the case with any time there are additional restrictions on sex offenders, that there will be some sort of legal challenge to it. >> is this something, i mean, i know we can try to legislate it but shouldn't the watchdog really be the parents in these cases and at the end of the day -- >> it has to be first and foremost the parents but, look, governor cuomo in particular has really taken a lead when it comes to sex offenders online,
7:42 am
which now requires them to sort of register all of their e-mails and any time they're online, et cetera, and so i do think that's a legitimate issue. but in the end, it's going to be the parents. you have to know where your kid is going, where are they playing, et cetera. >> and who's talking to them when they're playing is a big, big scare for all of us parents in this electronic age. dan, thanks so much. we move on to daredevils dangling off skyscrapers all for that photo. oh pie gosh, looking at that. the makers of red bull are launching an eight-part series investigating the mind-set of so-called urban explorers, adventurers who put their life in danger to capture the perfect shot and t.j. holmes joins us. just looking at these photos, this is dangerous. >> this is literally one wrong move, one way or another by a couple of inches and they're going to fall to their death, period. it's that simple. these are urban explorers, urban
7:43 am
