7:02 am
you look great. you're biking from boston to new york. we're wearing the ridiculous red noses for you. that's all we're doing for you. >> thank you. i really appreciate the support. i can feel the teamwork, savannah. we are on day two. it's a lot different than day one. yesterday was about 75 degrees and sunny and just perfect. ideal conditions for cycling. today it's a lot colder in the 50s. there's a bit of a wind. and we're going to go 65 miles today from here in rhode island. we started earlier at the state house. we've already gone 14 miles. we're going from here in rhode island down to new london connecticut. we've got a lot of work ahead of us. the word for the course is hilly. >> that's what i heard too. it's long but it's hilly. so enjoy that. >> good conditions though. cloud cover and cooler it's good for the hills. >> it's true. as a runner natalie, you know
7:03 am
this is what you look for. you're not wanting hot weather. >> we'll check in throughout the morning. but we want to get to our top stories. what one police veteran is call calling the most violent and gruesome crime scene he has worked. it is into the brawl between rival biker gangs in waco texas. what's the latest on all of this? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this all unfolded in the busy noon hour here. more than 200 gang members inside the restaurant behind me spilling out into the parking lot. what police call an all-out perp battle between five outlaw biker gangs. police describe it as absolute chaos. the shootout between rival biker gangs in the central town of waco. when it was over nine were dead at least 18 hurt. witnesses say bodies were scattered throughout the parking lot. >> this is the worst crime scene, the most violent crime
7:04 am
scene. >> reporter: authorities were on the scene before the violence tipped off that at least five rival factions would be at the twin peaks restaurant. it happened as families gathered for sunday lunch unaware of possible trouble. >> i was there. my husband was in there. the gang members started shooting people. >> reporter: police say more than 150 gang members were involved in the fight. more than 100 were arrested. in the aftermath, hundreds of knives guns chains and clubs were found at the scene. >> there were multiple people on the scene firing weapons at each other and turned on our officers. >> reporter: as gunfire spilled from the restaurant to the parking lot, some customers hid in the restaurant freezer. what may have been a life-saving move. no bystanders were among the dead. overnight the local twin peaks restaurant posted online that they have a good working relationship with police. and that will continue during the investigation. within the last 30 minutes, waco
7:05 am
police have told us that's a lie. it's their quote that they've known about and been preparing for this for two months. reached out to not only the local restaurant but corporate headquarters and got no response. savannah and natalie, back to you. >> jay gray at the scene, thank you very much. breaking news out of hawaii overnight. a u.s. marine osprey crashed after a hard landing killing one and hospitaling others. >> reporter: these marines were on a training mission when it exploded into disaster. the osprey was in helicopter mode attempting to land when it suddenly crashed and exploded into flames. one marine was killed 21 others wounded injured. many of them seriously. and while marines are searching for a cause for this crash, there is a rare phenomenon with
7:06 am
helicopters and ospreys that if it's attempting to land too fast it can actually push out the air from beneath the aircraft creating a vacuum and the aircraft will drop like a rock. this has been a really terribly tragic week for the marines at camp pendelton in california. first six of their marines killed in the crash in nepal while on an earthquake relief mission. now this crash in hawaii. marines also from pendelton. the cause for both crashes still under investigation. >> all right. jim miklaszewski thank you. another big story the pentagon is watching this morning. isis militants are now in control of the iraqi city of ramadi. that is just 60 miles west of baghdad. one official saying the city has fallen. nbc's keir simmons has the latest for us. good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah good morning. this is without question a blow for baghdad and washington just days after its daring u.s. special forces raid killed an
7:07 am
isis commander and a key iraqi city has fallen to isis. and parts of ramadi are shown to be abandoned by an iraqi army that was supposed to be on the offensive. iraqi security forces appeared to flee ramadi in the isis advance. the video shows humvees packed with iraqi military in full retreat. leaving a crucial city seeming deserted. isis affiliate showed isis walking the empty streets. a hospital ransacked. video also has intense fighting. the secretary of state insisting this morning isis remains on the defensive. it is possible to have the kind of attack we've seen in ramadi but i am absolutely confident in the days ahead that will be reversed. >> reporter: there has been an
7:08 am
intense air campaign to save ramadi. a city 80 miles west of baghdad. the u.s. has sent weapons and is providing training. >> we're getting reports minute by minute. but we believe over 500 people have been executed or died in battle. >> reporter: 8,000 have fled in recent days. behind them isis controls much of their city and the military base. packed with weapons. anbar is of course the region where so many americans died during the iraq war. but an iraq official tells me he believes it fell to an isis group with just hundreds. while a group of thousands are trying to liberate the city. >> keir thank you so much. the war in iraq is still dominateing the republican presidential race. in the wake of jeb bush's fumbles last week some of his
7:09 am
colleagues getting interviewed on that. marco rubio had a fiery back and forth after whether or not the iraqi war was a mistake. >> it was not a mistake for the president to decide to go into iraq. because at the time he was told -- >> i'm not asking you that. >> the sworld a better place because hussein is not there. >> they say there's an important distinction between the information he had at the time of the investigation and what we know now. both said if he knew the information was false, he would not have invaded. rand paul said they should be asked if it's a good idea to topple secular dictators. saying we're at a greater risk from isis than we were before saddam was removed from power. meantime amtrak is getting back on track this morning reopening the track from philadelphia to new york.
7:10 am
nbc's tom costello is at the 30th street station with more on that and the investigation. tom, good morning. >> reporter: natalie, good morning to you. the northbound train will be finishing here at 6:09 a.m. we have a live camera on that train. getting this up and running has been critical. meantime the ntsb investigation remains wide open. this morning the northeast corridor is again open for business. the site of last tuesday's crash cleaned up. telling me new government ordered safety upgrades are already in place. >> everybody on this railroad has been emotional about this. focused and committed to safety. this is a safe railroad to ride. we know it. >> reporter: among the new safety upgrades trains entering the curve where amtrak 188
7:11 am
derailed last week must slow to 45 down from 50. and an automated braking system is now operational for northbound trains too. meanwhile investigators looking into the cause of the crash say engineer brandon bostian doesn't remember the crash. they are looking at this grapefruit sized impact in the windshield. was someone thrown at the train before the accident? two other trains operating that night may also have been hit. it's been going on for years. kids throwing everything at kids from the ground and also from up here. locals say it happens when kids are bored. >> many kids just throw rocks at the train. playing here and trains come by. >> reporter: often? >> yeah often. >> reporter: if train 188 was hit, did it disorient the
7:12 am
engineer when he was supposed to be slowing down not speeding up? >> we are going to get though bottom of it working with our colleagues and ntsb. >> reporter: meanwhile, 20 people remain hospitalized this morning. five in critical condition. all are expected to survive. back to you. >> tom costello, thank you. we've got tamron here. talk about politics as well. >> yeah. a lot to talk about this morning. hillary clinton will be back in iowa later today as she faces fresh scrutiny over her finances. she will be to answer tough questions that raised in weeks. it's on the heels of a republican gathering in iowa over the weekend. >> 541 days left for the end of the age of obama and hillary clinton. >> reporter: on friday clinton disclosed that she and her husband bill netted $30 million
7:13 am
over the last 15 months. president obama is banning the federal government from providing some military style equipment like tanks and grenade launchers to local police departments. this comes nine months after police in riot gear dispelled racially led protests in ferguson missouri. if local police departments want other less imposing military equipment, agentcyies will have to submit to federal restrictions. and an extremely rare moment in a college baseball game this weekend when the batter became the catcher for one pitch. arizona state's jason seawall gets plucked with a pitch. but somehow manages to catch the ball between his elbow and his rib cage. >> did the catch it? >> as the kids say, that was bananas. he simply pitches it back to the
7:14 am
pitcher. the sun devils went on to beat the cougars 6-5. >> very smooth. >> that's nothing you can plan. just gravity and force of nature. >> i feel like i need to watch it five more times to see it. >> i'm sure it's somewhere on the internet. >> thanks. mr. roker, how you doing? >> i'm doing good but our friends in texas are getting hammered. this is right now in johnson county texas. they actually had blackhawk helicopters plucking people from their homes rescuing them. amazing stuff. and take a look at this. this is an amazing video of a tornado. this is in elmer, oklahoma. and there are multiple vortices in this. several tornadoes spinning within the main tornado. you can kind of see it right down there. now, more rain coming and it's not ending any time soon. you can see the heavy showers and thunderstorms firing up

7:37 am
create some system like that. it's just ridiculous. >> reporter: tech writer bob sullivan is also skeptical, but -- >> there's a long history of computer hackers who are on the right side of things tinkering, maybe around the edges of the law. and we don't want to shoot the messenger here when the messy have a good message. >> reporter: the gao released a report this month that said any cockpit that has connectivity should be considered open and potentially open to a threat. natalie, savannah? >> thank you. important to take these claims seriously. >> terrifying. we will take a turn. let's get a check of the weather now from al. >> announcer: "today's" weather is brought to you by pure michigan. your trip begins at

a chance we'll see some afternoon showers and a chance of some thunderstorms. high temperatures in the 70s and low 80s. a better chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. those could turn severe. then here come ohs springtime wet wither. really nice and comfortable for wednesday and thursday, into the lower 70s. warmer friday. and thursday into the lower 70s. look at the sunshine this weekend into the 70s. have a great day. >> and that's your latest weather. >> thank you so much. we are wrapping up our special series "are we there yet" this morning. last week we shows you holograms, music space travel. natalie will tell us what's next. >> faster than a speeding bullet able to leap tall buildings. is all that really just for superheroes? turns out, maybe not anymore. i got to test out some new devices for running, swimming and soaring to make me feel like -- well, not really -- but super natalie. once upon a time you could only
8:33 am
find a flying skateboard in the pages of a comic board or hovering through movies like "back to the future ii." today investigators greg and jill henderson are turning what was once just a vision of the future into reality. so we saw this technology almost 30 years ago in "back to the future." >> yes. >> reporter: how come we don't have the technology to do that? or do we? >> we're closer than the used to be. >> reporter: this hover board floats over a copper surface just inches off the platform. there's no friction at all. so once you get going, you can't slow down. whoo. i'm flying. much more than a toy, greg henderson said their hover technology might one day change the world including, he hopes, keeping buildings safe from
8:34 am
earthquakes. >> hover engines have activated, the landing gear retracts the ground shakes the ground stops shaking, that structure never experienced any shaking at all. >> reporter: hover b a building may be a long way off, but with hover park already in the works, "back to the future's" marty mcfly may want to watch his back. so how about underwater? well thanks to innovations like the monofin, real life aqua men and women are pushing the limits of underwater endurance. i recruited butterfly swimmer graham schmelzer to test it out. what does it feel like? >> it's crazy. >> do you feel like it gives you more push? >> definitely. you stream right through the water. really quickly. >> reporter: after a few tips it was time for my best mermaid impression.
8:35 am
like flipper. takes some getting used to but divers say this fin is the closest thing yet to swimming like our dolphin cousin. but if i could take one super power, it'd have to be superhuman speed. bond flew away from the bad guys. so 15 years later, where's my personal jet pack? turns out it's right here and plenty of daredevils are embracing it despite the obvious risks. while studying engineering at arizona state, jason created his own version that's a bit more down to earth. >> this is the jet pack. this is a device that makes people run a lot faster. it puts out 15 to 20 of thrust. it pushes you along and carries you up. >> reporter: it's designed for soldiers carrying a heavy pack.
8:36 am
but how much faster could it make me? >> give it a go. >> reporter: okay. off we go. i feel like i'm going to fly. running with this thing feels like you've got a strong wind at your back. you're going faster with less effort. predicting what will catch on in the future is always tricky but if it includes having rockets at our fingertips i'll be there as fast as i can. >> i see a whole new olympics coming up. >> superhero olympics. >> everything you saw, what's cool about this, came from independent do it yourself type engineers. and it was really interesting to see how far they're taking this technology and where they see it going. >> i feel like i would have tripped. >> it's weird. it lifts you up off your feet a bit. >> how heavy is it?
8:37 am
>> weighs about 11 pounds but it sort of counters the weight. >> which was the most intimidating? the fin? >> i'd have to say the hover board is hard to get your balance on it. tony hawk, best skateboarder in the country has trouble on it. but it is very cool. i think they're definitely onto something. >> yeah super natalie. coming up next, nfl hall of famer jim kelly and his battle with cancer and what it means to be kelly tough. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:38 am

>> announcer: "today's" books are brought to you by the all new kindle voyage. >> jim kelly is an nfl legend a hall of famer. he led the buffalo bills to four straight super bowls in the early '90s.
8:40 am
but his biggest battle came later in recent years when kelly was diagnosed with cancer twice in his jaw and nasal cavity. his wife jill and daughter erin stood by him through it all and erin writes about it in the book "kelly tough." good morning. >> good morning. >> you look so good. you feeling good? >> thank you. i feel pretty good. time will only tell over the future but i feel pretty good. thank you. >> you've been through so much. you just recently appeared at the nfl draft on behalf of the bills and you electrified the crowd. people were so excited to see you. what was that moment like after all you've been through? >> it's really hard to explain in words. humbling yes, because i wasn't sure when i walked out what the reception i was going to get. but the best part of that whole thing was, yes, the cheering but having my daughter and wife there and being able to be there. because last year at that time i was in the hospital. so it was a blessing. >> tell me what you went
8:41 am
through. i mean this is a very vicious form of cancer you had to deal with. >> yeah it was. but one of the things i found out is surround yourself with great people. the prayer cards and letters i received were just overwhelming. and to have my family my brothers my wife, my daughter every time they walked in they had a positive attitude. >> you decided to write about this. the title of the book kelly tough. you're really seeing it in a different way. >> absolutely. i never knew what kelly tough meant until i actually saw my father this man i always knew to see him struggle. it was hard for me being his little girl. so i just wrote my heart and all we had gone through and just what god did in the midst of my father's suffering. >> and the book touches not only on your battle with cancer but an incredibly heart breaking experience you had with your son hunter who passed away when he was just 8 years old and had a
8:42 am
rare genetic disease. tell me what that experience taught you as a family because reading the book you really see how it pulled you together. and somehow you were able to rise to the occasion. >> absolutely. i don't think we would be who we are without hunter. he taught us unconditional love sacrifice. he taught us you know the gift of faith. i mean we know god now because of hunter. and he -- we could not put into words all that he's brought us. in his short amount of time. you know certainly erin and her sister cameron are who they are because of him. >> the book talks about faith as something you came to later in life. not something you necessarily grew up believing but now the such an important part of your story. >> it sure is. you know the way jill and i were brought up we were brought up catholics. but the whole thing overall, we live and learn. and you grow and daddy finally gets it now. it took a little time but i get
8:43 am
it. i'm so blessed no not only have all the support i've had. not only the times i've played the games of football and now my battle with cancer. and also raising two girls. i should say three counting my wife. but we had fun and we continue to enjoy ourselves. thank the good lord every day for the blessing we have. i'm just glad to be here. >> and one blessing is today is your 19th wedding anniversary. so congratulations. >> thank you. >> many many happy years in the future. >> thank you. >> thank you for being here. they'll be back with kathie lee and hoda later this morning. once again, the book is called "kelly tough." check it out. up next now what? needing counseling for the new grad in your family. but first this is "today" on nbc.

9:02 am
report on the amtrak derailment from last week. finally trains are back on the east corridor. they're running again for the first time since the fatal crash on tuesday night which killed eight people. and now the train's engineer brandon bostian as you've heard still doesn't remember the crash according to investigators. though he is cooperating. he has answered all of their questions. there are some questions, however. the fbi is looking into whether or not something could have been thrown at the windshield of the train. apparently it's common along that route for kids to throw things. they're looking at what appears to be a grapefruit sized crack on the windshield. however the ntsb has even said they're down playing that theory that a projectile caused the accident. the good news is the amtrak ceo said now that they've put the safety upgrades into place along that part of the corridor, that
9:03 am
automatic braking system, sounds like things got off to a good start this morning. and so now we'll see where this goes from here. but what's interesting is there is a new report in the associated press that for the first time, amtrak may be facing a $200 million payout to the train crash victim. that is the limit that was set by congress. which when you think about it there were 200 passengers on that train. you know, $2 million cap is not a lot. and eight fatalities. when you think about for plane crashes, for example, the per cap damage -- on damages is about $160,000. >> interesting. this weekend i rode with matt in the tour de red nose and for the first time thinking about how i was going to get up there, i felt more nervous about the idea of taking a train than flying.
9:04 am
so i ended up taking a shuttle over. >> it's interesting. >> and listen, there are thousands and thousands and thousands of train trips every day that go off without a hitch. but between the one in california last year and metro north and this all of a sudden a mode of transportation you take for granted. >> we do. and peter alexander's report last week said there are six times more accidents in train tracks in the last couple of years than there have been flights crashes or other accidents. >> many are asking why the safety upgrade over the weekend why did it take this awful accident for it to be put in place. there's been a lot of debate about funding. the funding was available. the timing for whatever reason this morning on the transportation secretary was asked that about why is it that there's been i think she pointed out three accidents
9:05 am
specifically where the safety improvements were made after a tragedy. >> and don't even start about the railroad crossings. i mean, those are crazy. because you were saying that your concern this weekend was whether or not you feel comfortable on the trains. this story made me think about flying this weekend. this hacker, his name is chris roberts. he now claims that he hacked into a commercial jet electronic system. he said he briefly took control of the cockpit. he hacked into the entertainment system up to 20 times, is what he's saying. and he caused the engine to climb resulting in a lateral or sideways sideways move from the airport. here's what chris roberts said is possible in the air. >> it is definitely possible to manipulate the electronics through the in-flight
9:06 am
entertainment system. >> the fbi said there's no credible information to suggest a flight control system can be accessed from the in-flight entertainment system. roberts tweeted yesterday my only interest is to improve aircraft safety. >> did he showed them he could do this? >> i don't know if he showed or described in detail. my question would be would a pilot have noticed it and why didn't an airline report some kind of mysterious motion? if anywhere were to notice it it would be a pilot, maybe. obviously i'm not qualified to say that. >> and why would you hack and maybe cause a problem on a plane that you're on? >> right. maybe he didn't think he could pull it off and then did. >> meanwhile, boeing says it's
9:07 am
impossible to do this. and a lot of people are casting doubt on whether or not maybe he's just looking for, you know, fame or celebrity. >> i'm from the school of thought now that anything is possible. yeah. >> is that illegal? could he have been charged? >> absolutely. and, listen. the fbi and other agencies have hired and they've actually openly courted some of the best hackers out there because these guys and women who do this, they can infiltrate -- we know it's not just domestically. >> you want them on your team rather than against you. speaking of big awards, which we weren't, but i thought i'd throw that in. >> good segue. >> taylor swift. is this the year of taylor swift or what? >> i have a girl crush on her. even more so now with the new video. >> eight awards including top

9:09 am
clearly you understand what happened. >> take a look. listen to the lyrics. >> don't listen. [ muted ]. >> that's riveting. >> people thought there was a problem with the audio. they were tweeting about it. >> the censor was like let's hold the finger down. >> the one word he repeatedly says in the song, you get one of those out -- >> why wouldn't they ask him to do a different song? >> also, the fireworks. who's there? it could be anybody. it was like this ball of fire. >> okay. it was me. >> i was going to say. that was al roker. >> it was me. >> he called his stunt double. >> kim was busy. kanye was taking care of the beautiful north. >> so they called you. >> all right. let's go. let's check in with the man of the hour actually the week. day two.

10:51 am
all this was because of the support and prayers i got from everyone. all my nfl family as you well know. but my daughter erin and my wife jill and my daughter cameron, my brothers, one of the things -- and to make a long story short, every time you walked too my hospital room they walked in with a smile on their face. never a frown. they made my day better being there. that's what people with cancer or -- that are sick in the hospital need. they need to have positive encouragement every single day. >> a lot of daughters would have kind of maybe got into the fetal position and hoped it went away, but instead you wrote this book. you're sharing this. how -- was it cathartic to write it? >> i just wanted to share the hope we had and to encourage people going through their own circumstances, because everyone has a story. we're maybe the kelly family, but everyone has their own circumstances, their own struggle and we just wanted to share and encourage people in the midst of our suffering to

10:53 am
your feelings overtake your body and at the time, even though i was feeling bad, i looked and knew the blessing that i had and through my whole thing of suffering, i realized how important it was that i had these ladies in my life and realized how important it was that my wife the at times forgave daddy and jim for some of the things that i've done, but more importantly, for me, the love that my family has shown towards me, i could not have went through all those things in the hospital if it wasn't for my daughter cameron, my wife jill, daughter erin and my brothers that all came to my side when i desperately needed them. >> if you're going through -- >> kelly tough is overrated. >> if you're going through a difficult time in your life or any time pick up this book. >> yes. >> it will encourage you and lift you up. great job, erin. what a great book. >> great job, sweetie. glad you're feeling so great. >> i'm just glad to be here. >> and jill, i want you to know i thought you were his other
