water. i had my mom bring in the reel. i guess she stepped forward. when i saw the life raft, i did not see my mom. have you found her? >> no. we haven't been able to find her yet. . >> reporter: his story, the coast guard officials and those moments at the end asked, why you found my mother? and you heard the answer there. the many aspects of the story is developing as we speak. we'll be back with the latest at 6:00. for now live from the boston coast guard station, christina hager, wbz news. to campaign 2016 and candidates used a springboard last night, and today, the candidates were back out
across the country, 84 million across the country, made it the most watched event in history, more than the super bowl. who won? both are declaring victory. hillary clinton celebrated her performance with a mid-day rally in north carolina. >> did anybody see that debate last night? one down, two to go. >> reporter: her rival, republ was upbeat in another battle ground state during a roundtable meeting in little havana. >> it was a fascinating period of time. we won virtually every poll. >> reporter: last night's debate found both candidates sounded off on topics from national security to job breathe and others controversial issues. >> i will release my tax returns against my lawyer's wish when is she releases her
deleted. >> it must be something, really important and terrible that he is trying to hide. >> reporter: heading into the debate, clinton led trump on polls over who was most qualified and trump is continuing to reach out to latinos. >> we're leading florida right now. yeah. and we're doing that because of the hispanic community. >> reporter: while clint open goes after middle income families. >> what kind of want to root for 9 million families losing their homes? one who should never be president is the answer to that question. >> reporter: so, while the candidates are claiming victory, the pundits seem to favor clinton. 62% of our poll give it to clinton and 38%, trump.
surrogates have been working so hard today, john, to convince us of what we felt last night. [laughter] >> reporter: that's right, and over the years, surveys found some voters make up their minds based not on what they saw but others say after the fact. let's take a skeptical look at the messages that supporters are trying to plant. let's start with clinton's running mate senator tim kaine wh campaign thinks is a crucial trump weakness, his temperament and the way clinton appeared to get under his skin last night. >> fur that rattled in a debate -- he didn't give details about anything. he didn't answer a question about his taxes, for example. >> reporter: actually, trump did give details about his
foreign trade deals, and even why he won't release his tax returns, like them or not. kaine's goal was to try and paint clinton as melting under pressure, and the key clinton measure in the campaign, throw it against the wall and see if it sticks and see how house speaker paul ryan tried to spin things. >> i thought hillary did a polished, well-rehearsed defense of the status quo which 7 out of 10 americans don't like. i saw donald trump give a spirited voice to those of us who don't like the status quo. >> reporter: not sure where the speaker was getting the numbers, but the president's job approval ratings have outweighed his disapproval numbers since march. the gop's problem said that trump's spirited voice as ryan
color, and even fellow republicans. so he has work to do and so does she, spin notwithstanding. >> thank you, jon. and clinton and trump will meet in the second of 3y 3ye debates, sunday night, october 9 in st. louis. you can watch that right here on wbz. david? lisa, a convicted killer, only a teenager at the time, will spend at least five more years behind bars. rod matthews' petition for parole has been denied. in 1986, he killed classmate shaun ouillette. and a grand jury has indicted a massachusetts state trooper, joseph flynn. he is charged with simple assault. he and former trooper, andrew monaco, were caught on camera kicking a man after a police

offshore and the best chance of showers and downpours across man -- nantucket. this will slow everything down and we'll get days of similar weather and in this case, it's very gray weather. so it's really nice outside tonight. we had sunshine breaking out and mild, and as we look towards tomorrow, low clouds filling in and scattered areas of drizzle and low clouds but it wo same on thursday, but not a lot of appreciable rain. on thursday, a better chance for sunshine. gloomier here in southern new england. and in case you're going hiking or on a road trip, much drier. the temperatures, 50s and clouds filling from overtime, and the winds off the ocean
little. 50s north of boston and low 60s south of boston tomorrow with the clouds. the winds turn to the northeast tomorrow morning and will freshen as well. so winds at 10 to 20 miles per hour through the day but stronger gusts, 25 to 30 miles per hour at the coastline and will add extra chill to the air and continue for wednesday and continue into our thursday also and likely into our friday, too. a lot of on shore wind keeps the temperatures from moving. highs in the upper 50s through this upcoming weekend. v in terms of actual rain, getting it to add up and put a dent in things, a better chance of showers friday and saturday and a few more will be scattered on sunday. so a chance to stack up a little more rainfall. otherwise, it's just frustrating. for the patriots taking on the bills, mainly cloudy skies and a chance for a couple of showers and temperatures in the 60s. we'll update that as we get closer. this is not a depression just
