7:06 am
american eagle flight 3358 left dallas/ft. worth international airport bound for memphis yesterday. passengers say the plane suddenly dropped and sending a drink cart flying on two crew members. >> it was two of them that got hurt fairly -- they were bleeding and stuff. and shortly after that, that drop that we had, the pilot got on and said that we had to make an emergency landing. >> no passengers were hurt. now, shortly after that flight, our david begnaud took another flight from dallas to memphis. he arrived safely and is there to show us how flooding and hail hit several states. david, good morning. >> reporter: dana, good morning. we were supposed to arrive in memphis 10:00 p.m. local time but we didn't get here until 3:00 a.m. the pilot mindful of what happened to that flight and talking to the meteorologists and delaying our flight but the passengers didn't seem to mind. in memphis, we are on the ground and rain stopped and set a
7:07 am
six hours. just over the border in north little rock, arkansas, a record 4.9 inches of rain fell in just under 24 hours. that sent rushing flood water over clogged roads, hampering drivers and creating dangerous conditions. rescue crews dragged three people out of rock creek in the heart of little rock. they held to a tree for safety after their car was swept away in the storm. >> help him! >> reporter: all of it happening while high water rushed through parking lots and making heavy dumpsters float away. also overnight, a hail storm rocked kansas. crisscrossing the entire state. the barrage of ice, rain, and wind sent people outside and drivers scrambling. in casso day, kansas, hail.
7:08 am
family's foam was seriously damaged. >> sound like quarts quarters on the roof to golf ball-sized hail and sounded like a hurricane was outside the front door. >> reporter: back in memphis, are you in the bull's-eye. the severe weather threat stretches from the ohio valley and includes louisiana. three week ago this morning, we were standing in north louisiana, the saturated bayou state is expected to get hit with rain today. >> i do remember that. thank you, david begnaud. critics from all sides are condemning donald trump this morning. saying he would punishing women for having abortions if they ever become illegal. the republican front-runner quickly pulled back those comments but the damage was already done. democrats, republicans, and even anti-abortion groups were quick to denounce donald trump. major garrett is in chicago with the latest comments to spark controversy about the trump campaign. major, some people say here we go again. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. on plenty of issues, donald trump has defined himself what
7:09 am
beyond the controversy and the flamboyance, a couple of questions have per sissed what does trump really know and what does he actually believe? well, all of this came together yesterday when trump did something almost without precedent. angering those who support and oppose abortion rights at exactly the same time. >> the latest demonstration of how little donald has thought about any of the serious issues facing this country. >> of course, women shouldn't be punished. look. you know, i think probably donald trump will figure out a way to say that he didn't say it or he was misquoted or whatever. >> reporter: ted cruz and john kasich both criticized donald trump for saying women seeking abortions should be punished if the procedure was made illegal. >> the answer is that there has to be some form of punishment. >> for the woman? >> yeah. there has to be some woman. >> ten years, what? >> that, i don't know. >> reporter: during a heated
7:10 am
>> how do you actually ban abortion? >> you go back to a position like they had where people will perhaps go to illegal places. >> yeah. >> but you have to ban it. >> reporter: groups opposed to abortion rights immediately denounced trump, saying we have never advocated in any context for the punishment of women and calling the comments completely out of touch with the pro-life movement. within hours, trump's campaign reversed course, issuing a statement that the doctor would be held legally responsible, not the woman and insisting trump's position had not change. >> would the president ban -- >> in every respect. >> reporter: trump's former stance in favor of abortion rights is something cruz and allies have been trying to highlight, unsuccessfully, until now. cruz is leading trump by ten points ahead of next tuesday's wisconsin primary but among women, the gap grows even larger. >> the numbers were good. the numbers aren't as good as with women as they were but
7:11 am
i do. >> reporter: trump takes the next couple of days off the campaign trail while cruz heads to california today before returning to wisconsin to barnstorm. kasich, running third in wisconsin, has also taken the day off and heads to his home state of pennsylvania which votes april 26th. >> major, thank you. democratic candidates bernie sanders and hillary clinton are calling trump's abortion comment shameful, horrific, and abhorrent. >> this is just beyond any position taken by someone running for president in a serious way in a very long time. >> to punish a woman for having an abortion is beyond comprehension j comprehension. >> but the two disagree on the comments. sanders calls it a distraction. >> any stupid, absurd remark made by donald trump becomes the story of the week. >> to think that this is an issue that is not deserving of reaction? just demonstrates a lack of
7:12 am
this is. it certainly is as important as any economic issue. >> the democrats say trump's statement highlights the risks women face if he is elected president. john heilemann, co-managing editor of "bloomberg politics" is covering the wisconsin primary. he is with us this morning. good morning. >> how are you doing? >> doing well. good to have you there from wisconsin. this important primary is coming up. trump is already behind by about ten points in one poll. to ted cruz. what impact will this controversy have? >> well, it's not going to be positive for him, charlie. i think, you know, it comes at the end of a bad week for trump. about as ba of a week he's had in a long time. you think about this controversy coming on the heels of the corey lewandowski arrest for battery and coming on the heels of the fight that trump and ted cruz are in and many thought trump went over the line in terms of criticizing ted cruz's wife in a
7:13 am
bad set of news cycles trump has had in a while. you pointed out the marquette poll has trump down to ted cruz and that was before scott walker endorsed ted cruz. it heads like donald trump would be headed for a defeat but a definitive defeat ahead of ted cruz in a week. >> what makes it different this time, john? every time he says something controversial, his numbers seem to go up. >> gayle, it is the most dangerous thing you can do in american politics right now to predict the death of donald trump and so i'm not going to do that. but i am going to say that it's an interesting, unusual situation here in wisconsin where all of the focus is on this state. we have had months now of multiprimary election nights. here, it's just one state. this state has the confluence of conservative talk radio here is anti-trump. that is unusual. the republican establishment is firmly anti-trump. and you've got this huge corps
7:14 am
seem to not be reacting well to some of the particular nature of these controversies that trump has gotten into the last week, and that confluence of things is putting him in a pretty vulnerable situation, to say the least. >> you mentioned scott walker and that endorsement. we have seen it before where there is an endorsement for cruz and it hasn't had an impact. what is the impact this time? >> right west scott. scott walker is a controversial figure in wisconsin but not among republicans. according to the recent polling republicans in this state. he is a very popular guy. he has a real -- a real machinery -- a real team he brings to bear here. it's not -- it would not be definitive or determinative, but coming on the heels of everything else that was working to trump's disadvantage here, it's like one more thing. i don't want to say nail in the coffin because that is a cliche.
7:15 am
the sun dadae for ted cruz in a way. >> what does the democratic race look like, john? >> looks like bernie sanders has the energy and momentum here. secretary clinton has not been in the state very much. she was here for a couple of days and then left. it looks like now, i think the clintons are coming back to the state this weekend and bill clinton here friday and i think hillary clinton is coming back on friday. sanders has basically been camped out here the better part of a week and one of the things true in this democratic race is if bernie sanders has time in a state where he has a sustained run and spends money on advertising and does a lot of personal appearances he moves votes and even the clinton campaign acknowledges. i think they basically assume that sanders is going to win here. the only question is by how much. >> john, thank you very much. the battle over protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination is moving to arkansas. the attorney general says the city's ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation and
7:16 am
state law. meanwhile, outrage in north carolina over that state's transgender law. north carolina governor pat mccrory spoke with our mark strassmann yesterday and he pushed back from criticism in business including apple. >> my phone is made in china. which has a human rights issues second to none in our world. and it's kind of hypocritical that they are worried about a bathroom and locker room and shower facilities policy in neither carolina which is allowing apple to make the decisions for themselves within their facilities. >> more than 80 corporations have called for north carolina's law to be repealed. the centers for disease control warns that the zika virus in the u.s. could spread farther north than previously thought. the cdc originally focused on the southeast when it looked at the mosquitoes that carried the virus but new survey shows the two species have a far graernt range can stretch to new york
7:17 am
our dr. david agus is in los angeles and joins us from there. doctor, always good to see you. >> good morning. >> there have been no reported cases here in the united states but looking at that map do we now need to worry about that? >> no reported cases transmitted by mosquito. but the mosquito season is coming. and so when may, june, july, august, september happen, mosquitoes are going to start to thrive and we are going to be in trouble with regard to zika. there are three to 350,000 births a month in the united states. and every pregnant woman is susceptible to being bitten by the mosquitoes that are carried by zika virus. >> what is your main concern right now? >> well, the main concern is if a woman is bitten by a mosquito that has the zika virus, the baby while it's developing may not have a normal brain. it is serious. the new england journal of medicine showed last night in a woman who is pregnant the zika virus lasted in her blood over
7:18 am
and so we don't have real mosquito control efforts ongoing on a major way in the united states. congress turned down a significant bill to research and fight zika right before the easter break. and there is going to be issues as mosquitoes start to thrive in the summer months. >> it seems like the one thing people really want to know when will a vaccine be ready? >> it's going to be at least a year for a vaccine to be ready. we have had a virus coming up and down the zika virus for decades. in america and most pharmaceutical companies, they fight things when there are lots of cases and they wait until then. we need to start to think forward and we haven't done that historically. so the vaccine isn't ready and won't be this season for mosquitoes. >> thank you so much, dr. agus. >> thank you. a new police raid in belgium this morning connected to a foiled terror attack in paris. video shows police taking part
7:19 am
a suspect in paris, investigators found rifles and stolen passports and tatp inside an apartment connected to the suspect who was arrested last week. tatp is the same material used in the brussels attack. >> barry: believe the man traveled to syria in 2014 and 2015. we know the identity this morning of another american killed in the brussels terror attacks. 41-year-old gail minglana martinez was traveling with her family when with the bombs exploded at the airport. her husband is an air force officer stationed in the netherlands. he is hospitalized, along with their four children. the couple recently celebrated their 21st anniversary. >> the former college basketball player who survived the brussels terror attack gets a happy surprise. >> we couldn't wait to see you. >> i'm speechless. it's going to take me a little time.

7:35 am
man. i'm speechless. going to take me a little time. >> reporter: i heard you when you saw your dad pop through the door there. just tell us what that was like. what were you thinking? >> surreal. i'm sorry. i'm at a loss for words. you know, if you had told me this was going to happen a week after lying on the floor in that airport where everything seemed around me, you know, like the exact opposite, it's just -- it's too extreme. >> reporter: bellin's wife sarah arrived sunday and sleeping by his side ever since. >> it was a hard time processing. i'm still having a hard time processing it. seeing that photo was, i mean, extremely terrifying. >> yeah. >> and to think that that

"forbes" estimates that 30% of the value of tesla will be de derives from the sales of this car when they kick in in 2007. this year tesla will make 17 and a half million cars sold in the united states and next year it's less than 200,000 cars. in terms of the big industry story, they are still a small
7:38 am
>> who do they think is going to buy this car? >> probably the tech savvy early adopter environmentally conscious person who lives in the suburbs or the city. this is not the car for a rural buyer, because the charging stations aren't everywhere. so it's the people who -- it will be a commuter car for people. >> you talk about a commuter car. before, people didn't seem to mind the delays. now are they ready to keep up with production to give people the commuter car right away? >> that is the big question. the molged sdel s was delayed and model x was delayed for almost two years. the early cars were supposed to be shipped in 2013. they came last fall. that is the big issue with this car. they need to ramp up production for 50,000 of these cars next year. the one way they say they will be able to do that is they built their own battery factory called a giger factory that is built right now and it's early in production. and this factory will help them be able to deal with the
7:39 am
they have been largely due they said to being able to buy the batteries in asia. >> it is one more significant step in the move for electric cars? >> it is a major step. from that perspective tesla has led the way. their cars have been extraordinarily popular. very well received in terms of car enthus yachts. they expect tesla to innovate. an auto executive for the big three. the question is can they execute? that is the question. >> did you see the story before you, the reunion in the hospital? i was watching your face and they were coming out to you. such a sweet story. good to see you. >> thanks. proposed law to cut down on teenage sex do more harm than good? one why parents believe the bill won't stop teens from sending suggestive photos.

a proposed law in colorado is raising new questions this morning about how to punish underaged teens who engage in sexting. the measure would downgrade the offense from a felony to a misdemeanor but some say that could make life worse for juveniles who are caught sexting. vinita, good morning. >> reporter: high school sexting scandal in colorado was the catalyst for this bill. prosecutors and police push legislation to combat what is common sense place. juveniles distributing explicit
7:45 am
law would could turn into prank sisters. >> reporter: these parents have told their kids sexting is just part of modern teenage life. >> it's more widespread than we would like to think it is. >> reporter: a new colorado bill would reduce the penalty for underaged teen to who sextings making it a crime for publishing a sexually image of himself harass herself or another juvenile. it could consider it a form of child pornography, a felony requiring those convicted to register as sex offenders. >> this bill proposes a charge that we are going to call misuse of electronic images. it doesn't even carry the title sexting when this juvenile progresses to adulthood that case can be sealed from the public. >> reporter: last year an anonymous tip led officials at colorado's canon city high school for a large sexting scandal.
7:46 am
images that had been collected and shared by their students, but prosecutors decided not to file charges. >> i think this new law is making this issue a lot worse. >> reporter: amy is author of "panic." >> it seems like a good idea. sexting can technical count as child pornography. but a lot of prosecutors are really hess tenths take use child pornography laws against teenagers. >> i'm concerned that kids might get what more widely prosecuted because it would be a lesser charge and so people might be more willing to prosecute, and i don't think that is going to teach anybody the lessons we want them to learn. >> reporter: the proposed bill does offer some additional protections for juveniles. they could defend themselves by saying they took reasonable steps in a timely manner to destroy, delete. if approved the new law goes into effect on july 1st.
7:47 am

8:05 am
a main topic of conversation. he meant it, he didn't mean it, he doesn't want this job. what is he thinking? what is your opinion? >> luckily, i'm a freudian analyst. he acts. donald trump is not acting in a way that suggests he really wants the job lately. he has done a funny thing. he shot up for eight or nine points, hit 30 -- he shot up for 2013 month eight or nine months and hit 38% to 40% on the republican side. what he had to do at this point is reached out to those who with looked at him and didn't like them and reassure them. instead of reassuring them, he is giving them pause consistently the past few weeks in his statements, in his strange approach to things. so he is alienating people who he might have been bringing into his tent and it makes you wonder
8:06 am
>> but dr. freud, the question is -- is he simply not ready for this in terms of some comprehension, ready for prime time and his campaign is, all of a sudden, now meeting the rubber meets the ground? >> yeah, but when -- it. >> well, when you're running for president, you ought to be ready. you ought to have thought about the serious issues around you. one of the things that was startling about his abortion comment is that abortion is a perennial subject in american politics the past 35 years. he showed no sense that he had actually thought through it and thought through some of its more delicate questions, and that was -- >> he has to know this is damaging. he has to. >> oh, i think so. >> because he issued a later report and statement. >> he had the clarification. but also if you saw him on the

8:08 am
of disturbing or seining thingsaying strange things maybe every other day. it gives a bad impression. >> i think what is says is what happening in the country in response, rather than what is happening in the trump campaign. >> you mean they are starting to or what? >> yes. >> you mean a greater. >> starting to add up. >> a greater attentiveness? i think the story is, for the first time, he has been hurt and he has been hurt by himself. he was always the only one who could hurt donald trump and i think he's doing it. >> i agree with that. go ahead. >> the only thing i was going to say is simply what kasich said about this idea of the seriousness of the office, that maybe now is he going to respect some of that? with lwe see a change in donald trump? >> i don't know if you'll see a change. we are about to find out if he is capable of stabilizing and becoming serious. we have been waiting for that for sometime and haven't seen it yet. >> don't hold your breath.

>> tiger woods. >> yes! >> no one can take the heat like tiger woods. >> reporter: though, no longer a major threat on the course, he remains a central figure to the sport. what is it that tiger did for the game? >> he made it cool. he made it athletic. he showed that -- he kind of had an influence on the younger generation of athletes, that maybe, hey, golf is cool, let's try golf. it certainly was that way with me. i was an athlete when i was younger and i saw tiger dominate and it was inspiring. >> reporter: spieth is one of the many young golfers in the game today influenced by woods who are now crowding an already competitive field. >> it's not just young players. look at -- i mean, phil mickelson is contending to win events still and he is in his mid-40s. then you have these guys around their mid-30s. adam scott and sergio garcia have been around since they were teenagers who are still in their prime. then there is the 20 something-year-olds. rory mcilroy is more

he and phil mickelson are the most accomplished players that are playing on the pga tour right now. >> very unlikely that somebody will win the grand slam? >> i would be shocked if someone won the grand slam even joo even if jordan doesn't win all four major championships to complete a grand slam, he is always up for a challenge. so here is my final question. so you want to hit the ball over the fence. >> yeah. >> reporter: i mean, over it. so how are you going to do that? >> hit more club. >> reporter: what do you need to do that? >> i can't tell exactly where it's landing but i'll just hit a 3 wood. >> reporter: sail over the fence? >> yeah, sure. >> reporter: hello, boat! who is that fool trying to hit us with a golf ball?

do something so well. if you love gochlf and see how good he is at such a young age and handling all of this so well. >> it's also i loved hearing him talking about that tiger influence. i think people forget. it really wasn't just what he did for the game at the time, but it is this generation, the jordan spieth who said i can go out and play golf. i don't have to be a basketball player or a baseball player. those are the guys right now that everybody seems to be clamoring to have another star. we have a few of them. we don't necessarily need just one. >> because of all that has happened to tiger in terms of not winning for a while, but phil mickelson said recently, i think it was phil. when tiger was at his best there is a remote possibility that anybody will ever be that good again. >> i don't think we will ever see somebody dominate. it seems like jordan was saying that. we are going to see that domination, but his, i guess, hand prints are all over it. >> i love he is a good golfer and a good guy. did you learn anything? >> oh, sure. >> i mean for your game, your swing. >> i did, actually. >> do you want to share what you learned? >> not right now. of course, when you come to

this morning." i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung, it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto . hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin,
8:51 am
on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your sk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary strictions.
