11:03 am
the train, causing the derailment. >> his testimony is incredible. it's implausible, and it's unbelievable. and i fear that today is going to end with the same questions. >> while they wait to learn exactly what comes out of the report, they already know what could have happened. that would have saved lives. >> because of that conscious decision that amtrak made not to install automatic train control, eight people lost their lives. >> and those attorneys are gathered around the tv right now watching a report. we'll check back in with them throughout the day and have another live report in the next half hour. reporting live in center city, pamela osborne, nbc10 news. >> pamela, thank you. stay with nbc10 for continuing coverage of today's ntsb report. mitch will be reporting live today from the nation's capital. you can see those reports on air later this afternoon and on the nbc10 app.

11:05 am
however. chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with our forecast. glenn. >> yeah, vai, as if we haven't had enough rain this month. there's more that is coming in. not all of this is reaching the ground, but especially where it's darker, that is reaching the ground. maryland and delaware and parts of south jersey. and there is more to come. you can see some of the heavier rain right around wilmington area. and then this little strip that goes right down toward the shore. so more and more places are going to be seeing this over the next several hours as this whole system moves in. now, this is one part. we have another one back here in illinois and indiana. that may be affecting us tomorrow morning. so these are two separate systems. here's the one for this afternoon. farther north you are, the lower
11:06 am
the chance of rain. the nicer the day, not exactly a beautiful day, but here by 4:30, we're still getting rain at the shore. southern delaware, most the rest of the area is just cloudy for the afternoon rush. then we clear out as we go into the evening hours before that second batch starts to come in. now, as we take a look at the temperatures, they're held down by the clouds, only 59 degrees in the p.a. suburbs. 57 degrees in delaware, where the rain has already started. so it's going to be kind of a nasty day, especially from philadelphia southward. and more of that coming this evening. philadelphia not getting much above the 60 degree mark, as we go through the afternoon. the p.a. suburbs, if anything, the temperatures going down. lehigh valley, generally dry, but cloudy and the heaviest rain, the steadiest rain in new jersey and at the jersey shore.
11:07 am

11:08 am
a man who took pictures up a woman's skirt as she stood at a food counter. this incident happened may 10th at the philly pretzel factory on 69th street. police say the suspect took pictures with his cell phone four times before the victim caught on. >> thing that bothers me about these dirt balls is the fact that if they have that much guts to do something like that, what can they do beyond that? >> the victim took a swing at him, and he ran out the front door. if you happen to recognize him, you're asked to call the upper darby police. happening now, philadelphia budget hearings are focusing on the issue of school funding. school superintendent william height is among those testifying before the philadelphia city council about next year's budget. this is a live look inside council chambers. doctor height on the right. the school district does not plan to ask for an increase in funding. but height says a long-term

pat toomey started his career as an investment banker. then, a wall street wheeler-dealer overseeing stock trades in new york, london and tokyo. next, toomey moved to hong kong to work with wealthy chinese investors. in the senate, it's no surprise toomey's been siding with wall street. voting to allow banks to continue making the risky investments that wrecked our economy. afscme people is responsible for the content of this ad. we're following breaking news this morning. a construction worker is trapped in a house collapse, and sky force 10 is hovering over the
11:14 am
scene. this is along north southford street near 59th and arch streets in west philadelphia. see those firefighters there, and we don't have a lot of information on the situation, but we're watching this in real time with you and we'll talk along with you as we see the pictures here. looks like they're pushing a stretcher into that hole there, and they may have, certainly it appears they have located the worker. and they're probably working on getting him or her onto that stretcher and then extracting that person from that collapsed building. as we pull back, you can see some of the damage to that building. at the bottom of the windows, it appears. looks like they have a device there that they're working on, that firefighter on the right,
11:15 am
working on something that they're going to help them perhaps expand that hole or help them in some way to pull this construction worker out of that home where he or she is trapped. maybe ten people, maybe a dozen firefighters there on the scene. and emt there on the right in the shorts, looks like an emt, perhaps a bicycle cop. just on the scene. this is in west philadelphia. this is along north southford street near 59th and arch streets. sky force 10 has been over this
11:16 am
scene here for four to five minutes, perhaps. we're going to stay with this picture here. i have a feeling they're going to be pulling this picture out, and we'll keep our fingers crossed that he or she is okay. you can see, there's a uniform inside that hole. so one of those firefighters is inside there, it appears. let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that any moment that person is extracted. this building was apparently under construction when this collapse occurred this morning. and you can't see firefighters that are moving around in there, so it appears it is safe enough at least for those professionals, those firefighters to be in there.
11:17 am
and it appears, it looks like they're going to try to bring this person out right through that hole that you see them kneeling over. an ambulance on the scene and medical personnel who are probably standing by waiting to get this person into the hospit hospital. we're going to stay with this picture because we expect that the victim in this house collapse will be pulled out. if you're just tuning in, they just pushed a stretcher inside through that hole there, just a few minutes ago.
11:18 am
and there's at least one firefighter inside there, and it looks like they're moving around. there may be two. so i'm sure they're placing the victim on that stretcher. and then we expect that they should be pulling that person out once he or she is secured. onto that stretcher. >> street, north southford at 59th and arch are closed off, as you could imagine. if you're near or around the vicinity in the area, you most
11:19 am
certainly will not be able to drive up upon this scene. looks like they're bringing out -- it looks like debris they're pushing out and trying to clear a passageway so they can extract this construction worker who was inside this building when this home collapsed. although there's people standing there on those steps. it doesn't look like a complete collapse. and whoever was there working was likely working in a basement. looks like a basement area where the person was working. just looking at the doorway there, there's a lot of dirt there. doesn't appear that those firefighters that are standing the there on top of those steps,
11:20 am
don't appear to create any problems for the extraction process. we'll keep an eye on this, and if something new develops here, we'll come back to it. in the meantime, we'll move on. keep our fingers crossed. looks like the stretcher there, the head of it, i think they're about to pull the person out. maybe we'll hang on for another second. i think they're just trying to clear a safe passageway through the hole. looks awfully tight. maybe a couple feet at the most from top to bottom. and that person, i would assume, is probably on that stretcher at this point. and they were pushing out some 2 x 4s, 2 x 6s, it looks like, and
11:21 am
they had a bucket they were using to fill with debris. that bucket is on the far right-hand side there. some of those firefighters are standing on debris. you see the fellow at the bottom in shorts. he's throwing stuff out of the way. just trying to clear the way, i believe. it looks like they have the victim on that stretcher. he's strapped in. likely injured since he's on that stretcher. they're pulling up another stretcher in which they'll transport him, i suppose, and get him on an ambulance. but they needed that hard stretcher to be able to slide it
11:22 am
through there, that hole, and put him on it. keep him stable. and now they're transporting him. we'll keep our eye on this and get information. we have a reporter, monique, who is on her way to the scene. we'll get a live report from her when she arrives. in the meantime, we're going to take a break and we'll be right back. stay with us.
11:23 am
11:24 am
11:25 am
we have breaking news this morning. construction worker trapped in a house collapse. sky force 10 is live over the scene. they just placed that construction worker in that ambulance just moment ago along north southford street near 59th and arch in west philadelphia. nbc10's monique braxton just arrived on the scene. monique, if you're there, tell us what you see and what's happened so far. >> hey, vai. i am here at the corner of the 100 block of southford street, and firefighters tell us they were called here about 10:20 this morning, and just moments ago, we sua person who had been trapped in the basement under the collapsed debris, freed. he was brought out by a paramedic and taken about a block down the street to an ambulance awaiting his arrival to take him on to be treated at a local hospital. let me take you back now to the scene here that is still in the 100 block of southford street. you see that there are dozens of
11:26 am
firefighters on the scene. police have been here outside the tape, trying to keep this entire neighborhood away. this is what we know. we were told that the house was under construction. the first floor collapsed. and a contractor was trapped in the basement. still very sketchy details. investigation still under way. but for about an hour, at least, that person remained down under the debris, and he was just freed in the past five to seven minutes. taken to an ambulance on his way to a hospital to be checked out. we also saw that his neck was in support. they had him strapped eon the stretcher, but he appeared to be conscious. we're going to stay on the scene, find out exactly what happened and update you as well on the condition of that contractor. live for now from west philadelphia, monique braxton, nbc10 news.
11:27 am
>> thank you, monique. we'll have an update on the worker's condition when we come back. plus, baby blunder. an example of good intentions gone wrong and a warning yellowstone park has for its visit visitors. connections.
11:28 am
you're not just in the classroom; you're part of the community. you meet these tiny kids every year,
11:29 am
and you help them learn and grow. but you also get to know their families, and over the years they become a part of your life, and you become a part of theirs. when you build those connections, you can accomplish some pretty amazing things. i'm jackie kruzik and i'm proud to be a new jersey educator.

11:31 am
today is this issue of distraction, but the attorneys who are representing the victims say there's a lot more to it than that. they note that the engineer sped the train up then tried to slow it down very suddenly. that, to them, says there was a conscious recklessness to his actions. they tell me they hope that's something the ntsb takes into consideration. >> the families and the victims are looking for the answer to the question, why did this accident occur. unfortunately, that answer is very difficult to reach because brandon bostian has changed his testimony. >> more than a year after the fatal crash, the ntsb is releasing their findings. in a broadcast tuesday, the ntsb said engineer brandon bostian was distracted by radio traffic. >> a finding of, quote, distraction. we don't believe there was distraction. we believe that the conduct was reckless.

11:33 am
editions of nbc10 news. i'm pamela osborne reporting live in center city for nbc10 news. >> thank you, pam. stay with nbc10 for continuing coverage of toon's ntsb report. mitch blocker will be reporting live from the nation's capital. you can see those reports on-air and on the nbc10 app. >> and the wet weather is here. many of us are in for a rainy day as we take a live look now at market street in center city, philadelphia. see that flag whipping there. here's a live look at the radar right now. you can see a large area of rain moving in. most of it on the light side. nbc10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with the forecast. you saw in pam's live shot in center city, not raining where she is, but it doesn't mean it's not raining in other places. >> most of the rain is just south of philadelphia right now. the radar echoes is showing it's raining aloft, but the lower levels of the atmosphere are dry enough to evaporate that rain
11:34 am
before it hits the ground. so far. it's not going to stay that way. 61 degrees and cloudy in philadelphia. but in places that it's raining like in some of the northern and western suburbs. it's 59 degrees. 57 in delaware, where it's been raining for the last hour or so. you can see the darker greens are more likely the areas that are seeing the rain hit the ground, most of delaware and south jersey now. these lighter echoes up toward allentown, that's probably not reaching the ground. the atmosphere is drier farther to the north. and we have some rain in southern chester county, parts of delaware county, just to the south of philadelphia right now. but that's a fairly significant area of rain, and so once it does start, it would be steady for at least a few hours. that's what the futurecast shows as we go through the afternoon, especially delaware, south jersey, with the rain. the wetness keeps the
11:35 am
temperature down. lehigh valley, less likely to see any rain, and maybe even see some breaks of sunshine during the afternoon. there we go toward the afternoon rush. and there's still that rain around. but it's not raining everywhere. and that trend is going to be for it to end from northwest to southeast as we go through the night. today, look at the lehigh valley here. just predicting cloudy skies, not predicting rain. reading at 60. bethlehem, 64 degrees. now, farther south, some rain. west chester, phoenixville, 62 degrees. newtown at 61. and in philadelphia area, fairmount, 62. but some light rain falling. now, as we go farther south, we expect the rain to be a little more significant in hadden field, glassboro, periods of heavier rain, hours of rain, and
11:36 am
a nasty day at the shore with temperatures in the upper 50s. in delaware, again, a nasty day. dover only 60 degrees with rain. we'll see when the next batch of rain is coming, and it's going to be for part of the weekend in just a few minutes. all right, thank you, glenn. a new poll shows we could be headed for a very close presidential race this fall. the latest nbc news/survey monkey poll shows if hillary clinton is the democratic nominee, the contest would be very, very close. clinton leads presumptive republican nominee donald trump by just three points. 7% are undecided. if vermont senator bernie sanders is the democratic nominee, he would beat trump by a wider margin, 53 to 41. 7% are undecided between those two men as well. the same survey found more republicans trust trump to lead the republican party than house speaker paul ryan. majority of republican and republican leaners side with trump. 58% to 39%.
11:37 am
ryan is the highest ranking elected republican in washington. and said he has said he's still not ready to endorse donald trump. voters are heading to the polls in two more contests today. democrats vote in kentucky and both parties vote in oregon. tracie potts has a look at what we can expect today. >> it could be a tight race in kentucky today. hillary clinton won coal country eight years ago, but today, miners fear shale rr take their jobs. >> i'm not going to let them be left behind. whether she's hoping to hold on to a five-point lead in kentucky, but that was two months ago. there's no recent polling there. bernie sanders is expected to win oregon. today, he's back in california. >> i know that we've got an uphill battle. >> but there's already a battle shaping up between clinton and donald trump. senior aides tell nbc this fall he'll go after clinton's
11:38 am
character, e-mails, and her husband's infidelities. she's already hammering his lack of detail on creating jobs. >> republicans, democrats, independents. a lot of folks are going to think what is he talking about. >> trump this morning tweeting about today's oregon primary where he's the last man standing. now, trump hired a new veteran republican pollster to work with his campaign, and the super pac that supports hillary clinton is rolling out a $6.5 million anti-trump ad by this week. those are supposed to run in battleground states tomorrow. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> and today, hillary clinton's daughter will hit the campaign trail in new jersey. chelsea clinton is scheduled to attend two events in monmouth county. the first at noon, about 20 minutes from now. polls show that hillary clinton leading bernie sanders in new jersey. >> so the june 7th primary in new jersey is also the last time
11:39 am
voters can switch their political party affiliations. >> we're getting a look this morning at coalition air strikes on isis targets in iraq and syria that happened last month. the u.s. defense department released this videos showing strikes on a tactical unit near falluj fallujah, iraq, and a defensive fighting position in syria. isis has not gaining significant ground since it took the iraqi city of ramadi a year ago. isis lost control of that city in december. and happening today, u.s. senate and house lawmakers are moving closer to passing bills to fund the fight against the zika virus. the dollar amount is far short of what president obama had asked for. house republicans unveiled a measure that would spend more than $620 million to fight the mosquito borne illness, but that's less than a third of what the president requested. the money would help fund the research for vaccine and help control the mosquitoes that spread zika. the bill is paid in part using
11:40 am
unspent money that was set aside in 2014 to fight ebola. the senate is scheduled to vote on these competing plans to fight zika. and here in our area, pennsylvania has reported 18 zika cases. 12 in new jersey and delaware has reported three cases. well, at least parts of the area are dealing with more rain today. how long is this going to last? well, that's just ahead.

11:46 am
there's more back to the west. some of this could be affecting us later tonight and into the morning. tomorrow. so we have another chilly, wet day out there. here's the futurecast. by 1:30, we're certainly clearing out from the lehigh valley, northern and western suburbs, p.a. suburbs, but delaware, south jersey stays wet. stays wet through the afternoon rush. stays wet even into the evening hours, so it's not exactly the nicest day. but take a look at this. we have wet weather coming this weekend, too. and the forecast is for chilly weather and wet weather, especially later on saturday and saturday night. philadelphia, p.a. suburbs, temperatures into the mid-60s. jersey shore, only mid-50s with rain. both saturday and sunday. so it's not exactly a picture
11:47 am
perfect weekend that we're seeing. it has been chilly, obviously. 59 for the high sunday. 66 yesterday. 62 today. 67 tomorrow. so we do not have very much warm weather, at least in the next couple days. but eventually, it's going to warm up. you can see that in your own seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. thursday and friday, beautiful. there's saturday, not so beautiful. sunday, not so beautiful. we stay cool until we finally get out of the stuck system in the middle of next week. yeah, now tomorrow, that's our second annual weather education day. all the nbc10 first alert meteorologists are going to show off weather experiments to the kids at citizens bank park. join me and bill henley, sheena parveen, and violeta, and there's still time to sign up. you can get more information at phillies.com.
