7:02 am
that beach right now. should be pretty packed this labor day. those waves are hitting pretty hard right there. ginger, even though the worst may have passed, you still have the danger of rip currents. >> right, that's where the impacts will be, in the ocean. for anybody planning to go to the beach or in the ocean, that's the storm. inland, everyone seems to have a decent time because this storm is so far east. at this point post tropical cyclone hermine is south and it is moving north. it will turn back to the north and west, so eastern long island, parts of coastal rhode island, nantucket there, all in tropical storm warning and advisories and warnings stretch all the way down to virginia because it is that piling up of surf and water that does this that you're about to see where gio benitez is this morning in holegate, new jersey. >> reporter: hey, ginger, good morning to you. this is just incredible. i want you to compare this with my height.
7:03 am
the waves were just as high, tearing away at this dune and tearing away at your holiday weekend. off the mid-atlantic coast, hermine showing her power. causing coastal erosion on the jersey shore. rolling up the eastern seaboard, sending high winds up to 70 miles per hour. out in the atlantic, a rough ride for passengers on board royal caribbeans anthem of the >> in the restaurant, dishes going all over the place. >> reporter: a warning for beach goers with hermine creating some of the strongest rip currents of the summer. >> we're probably going to have a lot of guards down by the jetty with the rip currents. >> reporter: the threat leaving many beaches closed on the unofficial final days of summer. this morning many residents cleaning up after hermine rocked the coastal south over the weekend. >> we lost the deck. >> reporter: in florida, some

7:05 am
every time we kept thinking it's going to turn north now and then it wouldn't. right about here is where it went wrong. it should have gone north there as far as the computer models were concerned but it wanted to give us a safer, better holiday weekend. >> thank goodness it went wrong. >> i was wondering that. thanks for the explanation. breaking news overseas. president obama is in china for the g20 summit reading with vladimir putin to discuss syria and how to fight the president will be speaking shortly but bob woodruff is in china with the latest. >> reporter: yes, that meeting of the two presidents lasted much longer than anybody expected, about an hour and a half. still no agreement, but they will continue to talk about this to try to reduce this violence there in syria. now, secretary of state john kerry also tried to get an agreement with his russian counterpart for the past two days, but that failed as well.
7:06 am
cease-fire between syria's leader, bashar assad. the goal is to figure out a way for the u.s. and russia to work together to target extremist groups like isis. north korea launched three ballistic missiles. very interesting that it happened while the most powerful leaders are meeting. north korea does like to impress theor is less than 700 miles away from the spot where these missiles were fired. paula, george? >> provocative right there. we move on now to the race for the white house. kicking off a home stretch this labor day with both candidates hard at work in the key states of ohio. mary bruce is on the trail in cleveland with the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: george, good morning. no rest for chin tan and trump today with the election just 64 days away the candidates will be making competing pitches to voters here in the key state of
7:07 am
stretch. this morning as the candidates start their sprint to the finish, a first for donald trump. ? ? trump visiting an african-american church in detroit on saturday, swaying along and making a rare direct appeal. >> i fully understand that the african-american has suffered from discrimination and that there are many wrongs that must still be made right. >> reporter: a softer tone from trump after weeks of fiery pitches to almost all white crowds. >> i'm asking for the vote of every single african-american citizen. you're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, what the hell do you have to lose? >> reporter: but no change in tone when it comes to hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton is the most dishonest candidate for president of the united states since richard nixon. >> reporter: trump's running
7:08 am
released new documents in the investigation of clinton's e-mails, telling investigators she relied heavily on her staff to mark and handle classified information and she did not know the letter "c" in e-mails stood for classified. her running mate coming to her defense. >> these notes demonstrate clearly why the fbi saw no need for additional criminal proceedings. >> reporter: meanwhile clinton is noticeably quiet on the campaign trail as she makes a fundraising with big donors and still largely ignoring the press. it's now been 275 days since her last full blown press conference. >> is this going to change? >> all the time as hillary is on the trail, she's talking to the press, hundreds of interviews. i'm doing the same. the labor day to election day stretch is going to ramp up even more. >> reporter: still no word on
7:09 am
lands here in ohio later today it will be on a new plane with her press corps on board. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. i'm here with matt dowd, political analyst. labor day used to be considered the start of the presidential campaign. now it's the beginning of the end. let's look at where things stand right now. after a rough start in august donald trump has tightened things up a bit. >> yeah, the race has trended back to where it was preconvention when hillary and the democrats had a great convention and donald trump made a series of errors. it's gone the interesting thing about this race, somebody could win this with 43% or 44% of the vote which changes the dynamics in states and demography. >> you have two other candidates in there, jill stein and gary johnson. johnson doing fairly well, approaching 10% in some polls but can he make a real difference if he doesn't get into those debates? >> it looks like he won't get into the debates because he has
7:10 am
he can allow either candidate to lower their barrier that they need to win so donald trump can underperform with minorities and still win the presidency. hillary clinton can underperform with white voters and still win the presidency. >> and that debate september 26, scheduled for september 26, still the biggest x factor. >> as you know, george, anything can happen in the next 60 or 62 days but the debates will determine this. hillary clinton can either put donald trump away or donald trump can get right back in this race, overcome this to have at 40 or 41%. >> both candidates need that debate in a way because they both are entering the home stretch with such high negatives. >> they have two huge liabilities that i think the debate is crucial for each of them. donald trump has to prove that he's presidential and doesn't make the country feel insecure in some of the manner with which he relates to them, and hillary clinton as we heard from the piece has to solve this trust problem that she has that continues to weigh her down.
7:11 am
before the debate? >> yes. absolutely. do a chris christie style press conference where you go for an hour and a half, exhaust the press by standing there taking one after another. then you can clean up things at the debate. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. >> september 26 going to be must see tv. >> horns. >> you had to get that in there. >> i was conflicted. welcome horns. >> politics and sports with matt dowd. good to see dimensional. thank you. amusement ride accidents making headlines this monday morning from chicago to memphis where 8 people were taken to the hospital after lap bars opened on the ride before it came to a full stop. eva pilgrim is here with the latest. >> reporter: a terrifying trend, the absolute last thing you want to happen. but almost for a week now for the last month some sort of accident involving a ride and the number of people hurt just
7:12 am
two different local fairs leaving a dozen people, mostly children, recovering. >> i really thought i was going to die. >> reporter: this ride at the delta fair in memphis now shut down after this terrifying scene, pure panic as the moonraker ride fall functions. people left dangling, holding on for their lives, some falling from their seats. >> my youngest daughter is bad. >> reporter: shawn owen's daughter faith has a broken wrist and neck injury. more than half a dozen children rushed to the hospital, this within hours of another fair accident in chicago. >> the ems plan one for the multiple injuries at the carnival. >> reporter: six children hitting their heads when a roller coaster came to an abrupt stop. >> one of the little girls whipped forward and hit her face on part of the ride. >> reporter: the total number of scares at amusement parks and

7:15 am
he hasn't been seen behind the wheel since july 9 as he's continued a slow and difficult recovery. >> i struggled with my eyes for a while and i'm starting to see improvements there. my balance is miles better than it was. >> reporter: this comes on the heels of his announcement that he's donating his brain to concussion research. in response to a "sports illustrated" story about nfl players doing the same, earnhardt tweeted in march, what use is it to you at that point? i'm going to donate mine. concussions in his career, including two in 2012, the first during a test drive in kansas where he blew a tire and slammed the wall. then just two months later spinning out of control in a chain reaction crash during the race at the talladega superspeedway. >> this is at least his fourth concussion he's had in his career. he's going to wait and try next year. he said he's aiming for next season he plans to be back in that car but says he even has trouble walking down the
7:16 am
space walking down the sidewalk. if you can't do that you don't need to be going 200 miles per hour in a car. he said it was weeks after this last concussion before he felt anything. who knows how long he was out there having issues before he realized it. this is scary, 41 years old. >> t.j., thanks very much. u.s. open time, it's a big day today. both serena and venous williams take the court. we all want to see action this morning. hi, nick. >> good morning. we may never see the likes of serena williams ever again. she's chalking up records, she's on the brink of sporting immortality. the only thing possibly standing in her way, maybe some big nerves on big occasion and maybe her big sister venous. >> game face, check, kpegs sleeves, check, serena is ready
7:17 am
slam, world record, the most ever by a woman and tied with roger federer for the most wins ever by a human being. >> i want to keep that number going higher and see what can happen. >> reporter: and if serena lifts the trophy here this week, it will be a record-breaking 23rd grand slam trophy and a record 7th u.s. open crown. but she's on a collision course to meet sister venus in the semifinals, the b in sports, 36 years young venus, this weekend, crushing an opponent ten years her junior. >> that energy when match point rolled up and i'm like, i'm right at home. >> reporter: dominating the court since the turn of the century, two more wins apiece and that semifinal showdown is on. and we might not see many more. oh, and serena says those compression sleeves make her think of a superhero.
7:18 am
serena tips her hat to the trailblazers who came before her, billie jean king, but she says that female athletes are still treated differently than men. she's trying to do her best to readjust that balance, but you know, it's a tough one. but today she's playing today. if she wins today, she'll become the winningest grand slam player ever. she will eclipse the great roger federer. enough said. >> there was a big upset on the men's side. >> nadal out. clearing the way for to win the whole thing. >> i was exhausted watching that match, over four hours. running on fumes at that point. i almost passed out watching it. thanks, nick. >> let's go over to ginger to save paula. >> tropical storm newton now traveling to cabo san lucas

you could say you called a couple of games over the weekend in college football, but jesse, it's great to have you here this morning. you have a great story about a rescue. >> imagine being on a boat with 20 other people and at 5:00 in the morning your boat hits rocks and you start sinking. this morning there are a lot of people thankful for good samaritans who came to their rescue and we're hear from them coming up. now to new questions about jonbenet ramsey's pageant queen was murdered, her father is speaking out in a new documentary. david wright is here with the story. >> hard to believe it was 20 years ago that jonbenet ramsey case was media obsession but never solved. now it's the focus of a two-hour documentary debuting tonight on a & e. >> reporter: she was a 6-year-old beauty queen found strangled to death in the basement of her parents' upscale
7:32 am
morning after christmas 1996. >> we lost our child. we were devastated. >> reporter: a cold case that is still officially open. >> we have not and will not give up. we remain focused on this investigation and finding justice for jonbenet. >> reporter: the case file bulging with 1500 pieces of evidence, including 200 dna samples and 20,000 tips and leads. boulder police interviewed some are still no closer to catching the killer. >> this person murdered jonbenet. >> reporter: this morning a aend e's documentary promises new revelation. >> suddenly a little light went on and it was just like, wait a minute, it was a stun gun. >> reporter: testing the theory that an intruder committed the murder. >> the test reveals that mixed with her blood was the dna of an unknown male.
7:33 am
thought they had their man. a man named john mark carr confessed. >> i loved jonbenet and she died accidently. >> reporter: but his dna did not match so he was never charged. j jonbenet's parents also came under suspicion and sat down with barbara walters years ago. >> mr. ramsey, did you kill jonbenet? >> no, i did not. >> mrs. ramsey, did you kill your daughter? >> no, i did not kill my daughter. >> reporter: the documentary includes a interview with the father. >> death would have been a welcome relief from the pain and agony i felt. >> reporter: only 12 years after the crime did boulder authorities exonerate the family and issue an apology. the death of his daughter still haunts john ramsey to this day. >> we keep our curtains closed. our doors and windows are locked. going anywhere is a major organized and planned operation. we get people coming to the door claiming to have information
7:34 am
we had lost our child. that's what mattered. >> reporter: this new a and emt documentary is the first of several crime shows hoping to shed new light on this cold case. a lot like those o.j. simpson shows from last year. if jonbenet had survived she would be 26 years old. >> incredible. >> thank you, david. and that documentary, the killing of jonbenet, the truth uncovered, premieres tonight. we want to move now to a bizarre twist in a between exes. a woman claims her former fiance abused her but now this video right here which shows her apparently hitting herself is raising some serious questions and abc news linzie janis is here with the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, paula. she says her millionaire fiance beat her. he says she beat herself, then tried to frame him. he also says she stole millions of dollars in jewelry from him before calling off their wedding. this morning, this disturbing
7:35 am
said/she said breakup that's spiralled into a nasty legal fight between a millionaire businessman and his ex fiance. mary hunt, seen here apparently hitting herself in a fit of rage. attorneys for 45-year-old scott mitchell releasing selected clips from his home security system to refute hunt's claims that her former fiance was abusive, giving her a black eye. >> there's no evidence scott mitchell was ever abusive. this was her response to a disagreement, she just started hitting herself about the face and body and screaming. >> reporter: but hunt's attorney says mitchell was abusive, and that the 29-year-old's black eye was from an argument with mitchell a week after this incident. >> he emotionally abused her, physically abused her. he was enraged because on that very day she cancelled the
7:36 am
pointing to this video evidence of his temper. >> please stop, my keys are inside. >> where are they? >> in the bedroom. i don't feel safely going inside. >> he is incapable of controlling his emotions and when he doesn't get what he wants, he will go to any length. >> reporter: the bad blood escalated after a bad breakup. mitchell now suing hunt, accusing her of stealing $2 million worth of charges for the alleged heist which she vehemently denies. hunt has been charged with grant theft. her attorney is meeting with state prosecutors this week and hopes to get that charge dropped. paula? >> thanks. the video of her striking herself is stuff to watch. >> really strange. coming up on our big board, the truth about your soef. the fda banning the sale of some hand wash and the latest on the
7:37 am
games. hi mom. grandma! threatening to boycott games. o. oh! games. ic threatening to boycott games. e threatening to boycott games. like to have shingles. s what it can be a painful blistering rash. oh! mom. if you had chickenpox the shingles virus is already inside you. one in three people will get shingles in their lifetime. grandma, want to play? maybe later sweetie. talk to your doctor or pharmacist today
7:38 am
can't see it. can't taste it. but there's so much more to it. here's how benefiber? works. inside us are trillions of good microflora that support digestive health. the prebiotic fiber in benefiber? nourishes them... and what helps them, helps you.
7:39 am
it's time for the big board. our team of insiders weigh in on today's top stories including dr. jen ashton. we begin with a big announcement from the fda. the agency is banning the sale of many anti-bacterial soaps saying the industry has failed to prove they are safe and effective. dr. whitney bowe is here. i think this is going to come as a surprise to a lot of people. some of these soaps no more effective than soap and water so how did the fda arrive at this decision? >> it's the fda's job to weigh the risk versus the benefits. in this case the risks outweighs the benefits. there are two main health concerns when it comes to including these anti-bacterial ingredients such as triclosen. one being that they're thought to promote the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria otherwise known as super bugs
7:40 am
that they might actually affect hormones. so the soap industry, when they failed to actually present compelling evidence showing that these anti-bacterial soaps were any more effective at spreading germs than your ordinary soap and water, that's when the fda made their official ruling. >> i guess you use regular soap and water. some products are going to remain on the market that do why is that? >> it comes back to that risk versus benefit ratio. there's a toothpaste, colgate title that contains trikoesen. by including that ingredient you're preventing gum disease. in that case, the benefits outweigh the risks. but in general, that being said, i think that all of these ingredients are going to be under much closer scrutiny
7:41 am
sanitizer on the shelves, correct? >> for now, yes. we want to move now to football. we're talking about the growing controversy around colin kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem overnight. soccer superstar megan rapinoe from the women's national team, she was kneeling during the anthem in soul daerl as the santa clara police union plans to boycott. joins us now. i've got to ask you, the president of the police union said, quote, the 49ers are allowing this to come out from an employees and it's making for a hostile work environment for us at the stadium. from a legal standpoint, do they have a valid argument against the 49ers organization? >> not really. feeling disrespected and even insulted is not tantment to workplace harassment. federal and state law make it
7:42 am
pervasive intimidating conduct and language based on race, oregon jen. kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem and even wearing socks that have pigs dressed in police uniforms just don't meet that requirement. i don't see any basis here for the police union failing to comply with its legal obligation to provide security to the team. so i think this argument is not going very far as >> but it's really clear that kaepernick's actions have stirred up anger towards him, towards the 49ers. let's say the 49ers suspend him, release him. they could then face legal ramifications, correct? >> great question, george. absolutely. if the team were to release kaepernick soully because he's exercising his first amendment right to not stand for the national anthem, they would face probably a pretty big retaliation lawsuit. i think it's interesting to note
7:43 am
jersey sales have increased dramatically during this entire controversy. >> yeah, he's number one right now in jersey sales. okay, thank you very much. we move on now to a story sounding alarms about sperm donations. a man who fathered 36 children has turned himself in to police, admitted he lied to the company about his background. dr. jen ashton here for more on that. he was presented to parents as a healthy person, intelligent person, well turns out he's a college dropout suffering from schizophrenia. how does this happen? >> he was presented that way to parents because that's how he presented himself. when you're talking about sperm donation, two separate issues, medical screening and sigh co social screening. the communicable diseases, the sperm is quarantined and if it's cleared it's use.
7:44 am
each individual sperm bank will have their own. yes, they do background checks. yes, they should ask for college trapts scripts but the bottom line is people can still lie. when you talk about those 36 children, very frightening and you can trace obviously the identity of the sperm donor so it will be revealed to those parents, but we have to remember again etices and family history is one part of the puzzle. it's not a guarantee they'll go town the same road. >> this was an anonymous sperm donor but let's say the par one another. in that situation are the rules different? >> some are and some are not. you would like to think if you know the person, a directed sperm donor, then there would be greater honesty, transparency. then the psycho social screening, of course psychologists and social workers still evaluate those donors because this is really a big deal. >> there are a lot of women out there listening to this right now that may not have a significant other in their life
7:45 am
what do they need to be aware of? >> ask a ton of questions. you have those rights. and the clinic should be transparent and forthcoming. they should be accredited, licensed and people working there should be board certified. take your time. this is a massive decision. >> it is. >> there's a legal angle to this as well. police say that ago alice admitted to falsifying information but hasn't admitted to anything yet. is this a crime? >> it could be. learn more about this as the investigation continues. but making false statements in a situation like this could lead to criminal prosecution, and we shouldn't forget that there are probably going to be some pretty massive civil lawsuits as well because the women that received this sperm have claims that they were not given the sperm screening by this clinic was not done consistent with what they had expectations of. so this is a case we should watch because there are possible
7:46 am
pending. >> incomprehensible. ladies, we want to say thank you. dr. jen ashton, thanks for the discussion. coming up in two minutes, jesse's got the story of an amazing water rescue. we've been talking about it this morning. a boat with dozens on board crashing into rocks, taking on water. the good samaritans nearby who got there just in time. i'm phil mickelson, pro golfer. my psoriatic arthritis caused joint pain. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. pain from ra... can be a sign of existing joint damage... that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common
7:47 am
heart failure, or if you have persistent... fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. rm, flaky layers are on the inside. but let's just say it's more than ever. it's baking season. warm up with pillsbury. what's going on here? i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. we're putting away acorns.
7:48 am

man: i accept i'm not the deep sea fisherman i was. i accept i'm not out on the ocean wrestling marlin. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a heart valve problem. but i won't go after anything with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i'll do that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin. plus, it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that's what i wanted to know. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious
8:11 am
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily. and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis make increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i may not be going for the big one, but i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke, plus less major bleeding.
8:12 am
we want to welcome you back to "gma" on this labor day. we have a labor day headline that has a whole lot of people talking right now saying that less work may actually be more. a column in the "washington post" pointing out just how overworked americans truly are and how it could be hurting our rebecca jarvis is back with a closer look. >> reporter: americans are trading sleep for work. according to the bureau of labor statistics, american time survey. a "wall street journal" report touting the benefits of a 4:00 a.m. wakeup call. despite our predisposition against it. in fact, there's an entire ted talk devoted to wokefulness at that hour. >> did you ever notice that 4:00
8:13 am
or shorthand. it means something like you are awake at the worst possible hour. >> reporter: today half of us work more than 40 hours per week. even though studies show too little sleep can make you less productive, less healthy, and less happy. >> and we want to welcome in rebecca jarvis right now. welcome back, rebecca. we know that, window working lo hours can lead to decreased health but does it lead to success? that's the reality that everybody probably knows. what i don't think people necessarily know is it doesn't always equal success. there are no guarantees in this. that's why there are people who are frustrated about this new world we live in where the expectation is really around the clock work but ultimately some people win from that around the clock work and a lot of people don't. a lot of people just work more hours. >> you're talking about that expectation, really it is to clock in at sunrise and clock
8:14 am
don't they? >> you do hear more of it. more people bragging i worked 80 hours this week and you have social media now where people can actually time stamp it. i'm up at the crack of down because you see my twitter account or facebook account in the post. i think technology has played into this. we are more accessible now than ever before. people have their iphone or blackberry in their palm at all hours of the day. our bosses, our managers know this, and therefore we are called upon to work at many more hours of the day than even ten years ago we says our productivity decreases after 55 hours, everyone. listen up. >> that's the bosses we want to listen up. >> that was a subtle message to everybody out there. what is the tradeoff for working long hours? >> i think, well, one of the things is that a lot of research shows like you're saying that productivity declines but also the more work people do beyond a certain point, beyond that 55-hour mark, the more correlation we have to greater stress in our lives, a less healthy life-style.
8:15 am
the feeling tradeoff but the actual physical tradeoff of more work. there are people out there who can probably work more hours. some people will argue it doesn't have an impact on me, i love my work, it's not a job to me. okay, that's the case for plenty of people, but there are people in work places who, once you get past that 40, 50 hour mark it becomes detrimental. >> amazon has been experimenting with a 30-hour work week but those that choose this, killing their career? >> what i think is interesting about what amazon is testing is everyone is on it. it's a pilot program but from the manager on down, everyone is working 30 hours a week and that's very different than saying the boss works 50 and the rest of the team works 30. so there isn't going to be a double standard. >> and 40% of us aren't taking our vacations. everybody take your vacation because we need them. >> happy lay day. coming up the incredible

crowder. tom rinaldi tells his story in the new book "the man in the red bandanna". we take a look back at a remarkable man. when wells crowder was six his father gave him his first red bandana. >> he loved having that red bandana and always had it with him. >> including when he volunteered as a firefighter at 16. after college wells took a job as an equities trader working on the 104 trade center. but the good money and great view weren't enough. >> wells called me one day and said, you know dad, i think i want to change my career. i think i want to be a new york city firefighter. >> september 11th, 2001 came before wells could switch careers, but on that terrible day wells became a hero. >> you heard this man's voice say, i found the stairs, follow me. >> survivors remember a man

8:22 am
>> exactly. like how many boys, george, he idolized everything his father did. they're getting dressed for church one morning and sees his dad wearing a pocket square and asks if he can wear one. his father fears maybe it's to blow his nose so he gave him that red bandana and wells carried that essentially the rest of his life. >> and that became the key to actually finding him. >> one of the parts of this story, you know, you were down there, you covered 9/11. but this one clue unearthed this one story. for wells, several survivors had pointed to this man wearing a red bandana to shield himself from all the smoke on the 78th floor sky lobby, a scene of terrible, terrible carnage where as many as 200 had been killed. >> we can't know for sure how many he saved but we know it was several. what a heart-stopping story, he
8:23 am
says i'm going back up. >> and i think that right there, george, poses the question at the center of the book. he guides this first group down. ling yung is heard in the setup piece there, they're on the 61st floor. the only thing he says is i'm going back up. all of us asked the question at some point, what would we do faced with that decision, a life-changing, life at stake choice. and the choice he made was to go back up, and as a >> the story you tell in a way shows that everything in his life led up to that decisive moment. >> that's right. the story unfolds from three parts, three 9/11, 9/11 and the legacy of that day. all of the institutions, his family, community, sports teams, his local firehouse that helped instill the character that ultimately in that moment of truth, the final hour of his life, he called on all of that to make this decision. >> and as you point out he's one
8:24 am
>> he is. it's been a wonderful thing to see the growth of his legacy. i think maybe it came in its most startling fashion when president obama dedicated the opening of the 9/11 memorial museum in the footprint of the fallen towers, 2,977 died that die, president obama chose to mention one person by name, one. wells crowder, the man in the red bandana. >> this book, "the man in the red bandanna", a great tribute. thanks for coming in. >> thank for having me. >> available in stores and online. right now let's go outside to ginger. i love this, george. these ladies have been the loudest. i said which is cfvhs. >> cade field valley health system. >> for all those laboring on labor day, the first responders, the retail, so many people to thank as a lot of folks are doing exactly what we're doing but we're celebrating this morning. let's check the forecast though
