8:02 am
victories. >> oh, my goodness. take a look at this incredible scene. katie ledecky so far ahead in the 800 free, looks like she was swimming alone. got out, got a hamburger, came back in and still won. 11 seconds of the runner-up breaking the world record she set seven months ago. >> adding to team usa's medal count, the u.s. is leading with 50 medals. that's 5-0, everyone, followed by china with 37 and japan with 24 but it's all about those gold medals. sshocker. team usa losing to sweding, the first time for 20 years the usa won't play for the gold medal. ance's matt gutman is there at rio with more. >> hi, matt. >> reporter: good morning, ryan. calling it the soccer shocker is probably the right term. this is the biggest upset so far in these games, but the u.s. seemed to make up for it in the pool. michael phelps only winning silver and sort of ceremoniously passing the baton to that human
8:03 am
who, as you just mentioned, seemed to lap her opponents in the pool. overnight katie ledecky with a seemingly superhuman domination in the woman's 800-meter freestyle obliterating the competition by 11 seconds. so far ahead, it seemed, she was swimming the wrong way, not only besting her own world record but completing a sweep of the 200, 400 and 800-meter freestyle events in a single olympics. no through. >> reporter: maya dirado going out with a major splash before retiring winning the gold in the 200-meter backstroke. her second gold medal at the rio games. michael phelps seen congratulating dirado on her win just before all eyes turned to him during his final individual race in rio, the 100-meter butterfly, phelps in sixth place chugging back, but unable to catch up to a 20-year-old
8:04 am
gold, phelps finishing a three-way tie for silver, the runners-up raising hands together in a show of olympic spirit. it was phelps' 28th career medal. anthony ervin bury edging out the competition winning again, 16 years after earning his very first gold medal in the same event. but it was not all triumph for team usa. this morning the u.s. women's soccer team, considered a consecutive gold, booted losing 4-3 to sweden in an epic match all coming down to this epic moment. the swedes posting this celebratory photo on twitter with the caption, "yeah." u.s. goalie hope solo scoring something of an own goal saying right afterwards, "i think we played a bunch of cowards. but, you know, the best team did not win today.
8:05 am
lighter admitting on twitter "losing sucks. i'm really bad at it. now, i'm not sure that you could call that an apology but the class that may have been lacking on the soccer pitch was more than made up for at the poolside. michael phelps so gracious with that young singaporian who had crushed him in that event and earlier phelps had kind of left the door open to not retiring after these games. last night it was slam shut and amidst all of the drama and the applause, phelps' son baby boomer was there on hand with his little earmuffs. the problem is, guys, he slept through the whole thing. >> oh, that's all right, though. dad will be showing that to him for years. by the way, matt, enjoy your day at the office. tough day. >> looks hard. >> i'm really sorry, guys. it's hard work here. >> it is hard work, and i'm glad to see you're able to spend some time on the beach, okay. >> i know. >> we'll see you tomorrow. >> thanks, matt. and joining us now from rio is espn reporter and analyst julie foudy. julie, good morning to you.
8:06 am
way. i want to make it clear. >> yes, but you will be at the beach soon, right? >> i'm working hard. yes. >> okay, so, julie, let's start with the u.s. women's soccer team losing to sweden. first time they won't make it to the semis and goalkeeper hope solo said we played a bunch of cowards. did something happen we didn't see or is she being a sore loser? you have to be gracious in victory as in defeat. >> she is sadly just being a sore loser, paula. is what she's referring to is the way that sweden played, and really what they did was they sat in a little bit more, they knew that the u.s. was a stronger team. they took a tactic in soccer that is very smart, very common, they played low pressure defense, and it's frustrating to play against, i get that, and there were some raw emotions with it, but i don't like what she said. a lot of people reacted to it on twitter, of course, and especially those of us who have played on the national team for a long time. we thought it was pretty classless. >> like you say,
8:07 am
in defeat. and, julie, we got to talk about the two sports legends just killing it in rio, katie ledecky, michael phelps, put it in perspective for us. how dominating are their performances in terms of the annals of history of swimming? >> if you start with katie ledecky, i was at that 800-meter swim last night, and you heard matt mentioned it, and, ryan, i think you said something about it. she was 11 seconds ahead of the entire field. she is waiting for them to come and when you think about athletes at this level, there's to be that far ahead and separate as much as she does from the field, i think you mentioned she had a hamburger, ryan, it looked like she was eating a doughnut at the finish line. >> she did. >> it is crazy what she's been able to do and, remember, this is -- she's 19 years old. that's four golds and one silver for katie at this game and michael phelps, a game that many thought he wasn't even going to
8:08 am
four golds and one silver and he's not done. it seems like he's going to race in the medley tonight. he could end at 31 with 23 golds. >> 23. >> that is incredible. julie, we got to say gold medal coverage from you. and if you want to take a page from ryan's book and have a doughnut and hamburger this morning. live >> katie, she knows exactly where to go. >> that's good living, double-fisted. >> thanks, julie. >> thanks, julie. all right, now to that state of emergency switching gears here in louisiana this morning as raging floodwaters sweep through the state and neighboring mississippi. now, crews carrying out hundreds of rescues overnight and their work surely isn't over. abc's phillip mena is in baker, louisiana, with the latest. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: ryan, good morning. the rain here is relentless. so many homes and businesses here like this one evacuated and this morning, underwater. some parts of louisiana hammered with nearly two feet of rain in the last 24 hours.
8:09 am
rainfall and flooding. some parts of the state seeing three months' worth of rain in less than a day. residents trapped and desperate to be rescued like this family in east baton rouge, louisiana, forced to leave their flooded home and walk through the rushing water with a baby in tow. their local sheriff stepping in to help them cross safetily. >> you see the sheriff has the infant, trying to ep >> reporter: for this man sh, through the window was the only way out pulled from his sinking vehicle to safety by a good samaritan. >> i just told him, you know, don't panic. i'm here for you. i'm going to get you out of these waters. >> reporter: neighbors and friends in the flooded communities helping one another get to safety. in one case, the flooding turning deadly. just north of baton rouge, a 68-year-old man killed after being swept away by floodwaters strong enough to knock this tractor trailer off the highway.
8:10 am
help. the governor of louisiana declaring a state of emergency, and the rapidly rising river is now a big problem here. several already at flood stage and expected to hit record levels. the rain here not stopping any time soon, and it is going to be a rough day ahead here, ryan. >> really coming down, phillip. stay safe. thank you very much. rob marciano tracking the that part of the country. good morning. >> like phillip just said, i mean, it's not moving and it tips to come down. this has all the moisture of a tropical storm but it's just sitting right north of the gulf of mexico tapping all that moisture. you can see the rainfall just continues to dump on eastern parts of baton rouge, a flash flood emergency again for some of the parishes just east of that city. some of this moisture getting up into the midwest. we're worried about flood watches here.
8:11 am
through the midsouth including memphis as this tropical moisture not only moves north but feeds into the cool front and stubborn area of high pressure feeding this north and this has been pumping up the heat across the east coast, we've got danger oous levels of heat there. we'll talk more about that and thunderstorms produced by that heat here in the northeast and in about ten minutes. paula. >> look forward to that. thank you. to politics. donald trump's campaign feeling the heat with sliding poll numbers and a litany of controversial comments. now hillary clinton is adding to the pressure releasing her tax returns and calling for trump to do the same. our mary bruce is on the beat this morning for us, hi, mary. >> reporter: hi. good morning. well, paula, we've seen this before. donald trump makes a provocative accusation, doubles down, digs himself in deeper and later tries to shrug it off. >> of course, i'm being sarcastic. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump is playing the sarcasm card again after repeating this false claim more than 20 times this week. >> he is the founder in a true
8:12 am
isis. they're the founders. >> these are the founders of isis. these are the founders. >> reporter: even when given the chance to clean things up. >> you meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace. >> no, i meant he's the founder of isis, i do. >> but he's not sympathetic to them. he hates them, he's trying to kill them. >> i don't care. he was the founder. >> reporter: but now trump suggests he was just kidding kind of. >> obviously i'm being sarcastic then, then -- but not that sarcastic to be honest with you. >> reporter: as this as his poll numbers tumbling. clinton leading in the key states of colorado, virginia, florida, even north carolina. trump is already warning of potential cheating. >> the only way we can lose in my opinion, i really mean this, pennsylvania, is if cheating goes on. >> reporter: meanwhile, clinton is ramping up the pressure on trump to release his tax returns by releasing more of hers showing the clintons earned more than $10 million last year
8:13 am
trump's own words against him. >> if you didn't see the tax returns, you would think there's almost like something wrong. what's wrong? >> now, despite the added pressure, still no word on when we will see trump's returns. he has said he will release them but only once an ongoing routine audit is complete. paula and ryan. >> all right, mary. and for more political analysis and some creative analogies which we always look forward to let's bring in the one and only matt dowd. we just heard from mary bruce. you know, hillary clinton just released her tax returns and challenging trump to release his. will it work and will we finally see those tax returns? >> i think the short answer is no. this is unprecedented. i mean, for a presidential candidate to not release their taxes, but the problem for hillary clinton is they both, donald trump and her both have transparency and trust issues in the course of this. as you remember with hillary
8:14 am
participants at fat camp calling each other overweight. it doesn't work in this course of thing, so they both got trust problems. >> love your analogy. love them. >> thank you for that. >> you no, the latest polls show that clinton has a commanding lead over trump in key battleground states, double-digit leads in colorado and virginia. matt, can he recover. >> historically when you've been this far behind in the last 90 day, it out in the course of when you look at the history of the last 60 years of this. the problem for donald trump he's behind everywhere. hillary clinton has a lead everywhere so in the electoral college doesn't even matter at this point. it's a bit like katie ledecky in the 800-meter freestyle. when you're that far ahead, it doesn't matter what lane you're in so it really don't matter what state you're in at this point in time. >> double-digit in key states like virginia and colorado too. so he's doubling down on those comments that president obama was the founder of isis saying he was being sarcastic.
8:15 am
donald trump has basically shot himself in the foot, the leg, the arm, the shoulder. he's done all of this to himself in the course of this and full of holes. i think donald trump's main argument is don't believe what i say. it's basically a presidential candidate saying don't report what i say because i don't really mean what i say during the course of this. he is in deep trouble right now. he's got to figure out a way to recover but has to do the one thing he hasn't done, which is be disciplined. that's what he has to do. >> disciplined and donald trump, we'll see how that goes. they're mutually exclusive. >> thank you so much, matt. appreciate it. by the way, a quick reminder, much more on the race for the white house tomorrow morning on "this week" right here on abc. we want to move to a terrifying alligator attack. a woman on vacation in florida's everglades was rushed to the hospital after being bitten by a gator in a surprise attack from the water and abc's adrienne bankert has more. >> reporter: this morning, a florida woman is fighting for her life after an alligator nearly ripped off her hand.
8:16 am
wrist in a spot, and her hand was pretty much dangling. at that time when we got in the helicopter. >> reporter: the 49-year-old was vacationing at a campsite in the everglades when she was attacked. >> this woman apparently dropped a can into the water. she was standing on the dock, dropped a can into the water and as she reached in to retrieve the can, that's when she was bitten by the alligator. >> reporter: horrified holding her up from going completely into the water. >> she got on her knees with her left hand on the dock, leaned over and grabbed the can, and when she did that, she caused, you know, a ripple in the water or splash, and there lapped to have been a gator laying right there. >> reporter: the woman urgego surgery in critical condition as doctors try to save her hand. >> it was still attached, though, very severe almost full amputation of the hand.
8:17 am
this attack happened in a remote location only accessible by boat or helicopter. authorities say the woman was on the dock and the group with her preventing her from going into the water likely saved her life, ryan and paula. >> thank goodness. >> oh, my gosh, slipping in and out of consciousness, we'll try
8:18 am

8:19 am
that killed six people, at least six people on board. authorities say the small plane was coming in to try to land in shannon airport near fredericksburg when the pilot aborted and attempted to take off but the plane flew into trees at the end of the landing strip and burst into flames. and ow to florida where a spirit airlines passenger flight was forced to make an emergency landing in orlando. the plane with 179 people on board was headed to pennsylvania but had to turn back when smoke was reported in the cockpit and the airline spokesperson said it was caused by an air-conditioning six crew members were treated at the hospital and then released. and a horrific vehicle crash on a highway in ohio, a van carrying a high school water polo team was struck by a semi truck killing one teen and injuring five other people. it happened in a rural area southwest of toledo. police say it appears the mother of one of the water polo team members who was driving that van may have failed to yield the right of way. some amazing first steps,
8:20 am
the orlando nightclub posting this video of himself walking, the first time he was able to do this since being injured. colon was shot in the leg and rescued by police. 49 people were killed. finally, alex rodriguez hanging up his pinstripes playing his final game last night for the new york yankees before a sellout crowd in the bronx. a-rod ending his 22-year career in the yankees' 6-3 victory over the tampa bay rays. his stellar baseball career, though marred by admissions of steroid use and suspension for a full year. that was two years ago. after the game, a-rod emotional about the send-off he got from his hometown fans. >> all that i had been through and for them to show up on a night like tonight and show me that type of love is something that i'll never forget. it was overwhelming.
8:21 am
a hall of fame career except for the steroid use but is this really the end? there are rumors. >> no way. >> coming back? >> you don't believe it? >> he may be coming back to another team, possibly miami marlins, or maybe retiring. >> he needs four more home runs. >> i think he's retiring. i was at the game. i was 1 of those 46,000 cheering. yeah, i like him. >> yeah. i don't know. is he going to make the hall of fame? >> absolutely not. what do you think? >> it's the steroid use. >> hall of fame career. that's my take or shoeless joe jackson or pete rose for that matter. >> going deep now. >> you're unequivocally in our hall of fame always. >> there you go. >> good save, paula. >> i love it. well, coming up on "gma" this saturday morning, the stunning bombshell around "making a murderer." that conviction of brandon dassey overturned. what it means for steven avery. >> that's the big question. plus, don't call them over the hill. the athletes in rio showing their competition they're still in the game. love that story.
