7:03 am
times square, have to figure out how to beat the heat today. the heat index level, in the middle of times square, at 100 degrees. we haven't seen a heat index level like that since the middle of last summer. and we're not the only place. let me show you what the heat index, which may be the more important number of the day today. the heat and the humidity. the real temperatures in the 70s in new york city. but add the heat and humidity, it's already 83 degrees. you go through the day, your body will feel like it's 102, from raleigh into hartford, and boston, going there, as well. this may be the first day that places in the mid-atlantic have gotten the heat. but not in places like washington, d.c., with a heat warning out. and our ginger zee is right there in washington, with a look at where that heat has been and where it started. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: good morning, sam. and good morning, everyone. check out the temperature already above 80 degrees here in d.c. so, boy, is it swampy, too. the tidal basin one of the cooler spots in d.c.
7:04 am
but this heat is nothing new. let's check out places like chicago, where they're seeing the 13th day in a row of 90-degrees plus. they haven't done that since 1977. 35 years later and the heat is on. then, there's omaha, nebraska, a police that already had 9 90-degree-plus temperatures in the last month, in the last year. 10 of the 11 months have been above average. so, the heat, nothing new in the midwest. but now, it spreads east and really starts to seep in. you can feel it here. i think, george, we're going to need extreme team. >> thanks, very much. let's get the other headlines from josh. a hostage situation in france. >> similar to what we just saw. good morning, all of you. a man who claims to be associated with al qaeda has taken several people hostage inside a bank inside france, in toulouse. the scene of a similar hostage drama not long ago. a nearby school has been evacuated. and lama hasan is following it
7:05 am
for us. lama, at this hour, what do we know? >> good morning, josh. we are just learning the man is holding four people hostage and has fired at least one shot. it's unclear right now if anyone has been hurt. it could be retaliation for an attack in march. another shooter, claiming to have ties to al qaeda, went on a bloody rampage at a jewish school down the street from this bank, killing a teacher and three others, before commandos stormed into his apartment and killed him. police have closed off the area surrounding the bank. we'll bring you more information as we get it. josh? >> lama hasan, thank you for that. meanwhile, more breaking news, could have a major impact on wall street this morning. a massive bailout to rescue some of the biggest economies in europe. european leaders, led by the germans, have reportedly come up with a $1 trillion rescue fund to save spain and italy from defaulting on their enormous debts. this is a big shift by german leader angela merkel.
7:06 am
and shows europe's largest economy is now prepared to back its weaker neighbors. however, critics argue, the bailout, still isn't enough. meanwhile, former egyptian president hosni mubarak is close to death this morning, in a coma, just after a stroke. it's as the country he once led descends into chaos. protesters are protesting the military. eric holder could be charged with contempt of congress today. a house committee is demanding more documents about the government's fast and furious program. a failed sting operation that allowed weapons to get into the hands of mexican gangs. holder calls the committee's threat to hold him in contempt pure politics. the coast guard expected to announce a link today in the hoax reported off new jersey and a hoax in texas.
7:07 am
crews scrambled boats and helicopters off the coast of new jersey, spending more than $300,000 in the process, only to realize that the call about three people dead on a yacht was bogus. a similar prank call was made in galveston, texas, last month. well, endure it. on display yet another great game in the nba finals last night. lebron james saying his leg cramps were so painful -- you see there. his whole body, practically shut down. guess who came into the game and despite the intense pain, guess what he did. >> right here. right here. >> a big old three. breaking a late tie. and sending the heat on to a win. 104-98. now, up 3-1 games. this thing could all end tomorrow night in miami. let's go to the "gma" anchor scoreboard. robin, sam and lara, just showing off. that's an attractive bunch.

george and i have taken it. >> i can't afford to shrink anymore. >> i'm just saying -- you're still alive. >> the only person statistically alive is me. the thunder have to win three-straight. that's never, ever happened before. >> yeah. the next game is on thursday. >> saying there's a chance. >> we'll see what happens. good line, george. thank you, josh. also this morning, we're going to talk about the jerry sandusky trial. it could be happening, jerry sandusky, taking the stand today. his wife took the stand yesterday. and we want to know, will the former penn state coach take the stand? his wife -- jim avila is in bellefonte, pennsylvania, with the latest this morning. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it's all about risk versus reward. the sandusky defense team, still refusing to say on the record, whether or not they'll put the the former penn state coach and
7:09 am
accused child molester on the witness stand today. as late as this morning, telling us a decision has not been made. sandusky's attorney, joe amendola, hinted to the jury, they would hear directly from his client today. but was coy when asked by reporters on the eve of the trial's last day. >> it's like a soap. you have to wait and see. >> reporter: later, he would tell the judge, a decision has not been made. abc news sources tell us, the defense has been leaning towards letting sandusky defend himself for a while. critics say, he's so far behind, he might as well have his say. >> i think that the defendant is on his own 1 yard line. so, that would indicate that he would take the stand. >> reporter: sandusky's wife, dottie, did take the stand tuesday, with a wink and a smile for her jerry. the man she met at a family picnic nearly 50 years ago. now, fighting to keep him a free man in his remaining years. telling jurors in a firm but
7:10 am
soft voice, the house she lives in with her husband is no house of horrors for little boys. alleged victim number nine testified last week, he was assaulted in her basement, while she was at home. and screamed for help. but no one came. he thought the basement might be sound-proof. defense attorney joe amendola asked her directly. is your basement sound-proof? no. how's your hearing? i'm a light sleeper. i hear noises. she told the jurors her husband is in bed before she is 99% of the time. they sleep together in the same bed. and when asked point-blank, did you ever hear the young men calling for help? dottie said no. dottie admitted she could not think of a reason the boys would lie about her husband, jerry. today, is scheduled to be the last day of testimony. the judge told the jurors that they should hear closing arguments tomorrow. and they will get the case tomorrow.
7:11 am
he told them to bring a suitcase because they'll be sequestered in a local hotel and will deliberate over the weekend if necessary. george? >> jim, thanks. we have a follow-up to the big political story we brought you yesterday from abc's jon karl. he reported that mitt romney was not doing the kind of background check on popular florida senator, marco rubio, that would make him a presidential candidate. it prompted this statement late in the day from romney. >> the story was entirely false. marco rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process. >> with that, let's bring in jon karl to talk about what happened. in the beginning of the day, romney had no comment. came out late in the day with that denial. what's going on here? >> reporter: it's fascinating. in the morning, i heard from sources that marco rubio had not been asked for any vetting documents. he had not been asked for tax returns. he had not been asked to fill out questionnaires. 11 hours later, mitt romney comes out and now, suddenly,
7:12 am
marco rubio is the one person in the entire country that the romney campaign and romney himself has confirmed is being vetted. this is what we know, george. if he had not been asked for vetting materials by yesterday morning, he's being asked now. >> and you heard marco rubio supporters complaining he wasn't on the list. >> reporter: no question. you had conservatives shocked that the romney campaign wouldn't consider marco rubio. they said, this would be like putting up a sign, conservatives need not apply. hispanic conservatives need not apply. i will say the romney campaign has said that pressure from conservatives was not the factor here. they insist that all along, rubio was going to be somebody that was going to be seriously considered. >> thanks very much. now, to the scare in the air. we're just learning about this morning. a frightening ride for 136 passengers from las vegas to new york, after mechanical failures had the plane shaking
7:13 am
in the skies for hours before landing safely. abc's lisa stark has that story. >> we're trying to work this situation. >> reporter: you're listening to the pilot of jetblue flight 194, on its way from las vegas to new york. a flight that passengers say was filled with terrifying churns and side-to-side lurches, causing people to get sick. a brooklyn passenger knew something was wrong right from takeoff. saying, you could hear a screeching, an obvious mechanical screeching. we were bouncing around a lot. >> right now, it's quite a few things. lost two hydraulic systems. >> roger. and still on board? >> 155 souls. >> reporter: in addition to losing two hydraulic systems, the pilot said he needed to circle and use fuel before returning to vegas. one walking the aisle saying, i'm smiling. if i was scared, you would know it. i'm not scared. you don't need to be. but passengers described the flight as four hours of hell.
7:14 am
jetblue tells abc news, the captain declared an emergency, due to a mechanical indication in the cockpit. and out of an abundance of caution, the flight returned to las vegas and was towed to the gate. >> there's still a method of controlling the airplane, even on an airbus. >> reporter: s.e. cupp was on the flight, tweeting. the plane turned into a vomitorium for five hours. other passengers tweeted, happy to be on the ground. crew of jetblue 194 are superheros. mid flight emergency. but they kept us calm and informed through the emergency landing. airbus has explained it has enough backup systems that the passengers were not in danger. but for those onboard, it was clearly a frightening ordeal. george? we're going from the air to the airport. and another controversy for the tsa. this one is full of twists. a passenger unset with the way she was treated by security
7:15 am
turned the tables and aggressively patted down a tsa agent herself. that got her in trouble with police. but as bazi kanani explains, the passenger was acting out to make a point. >> reporter: this video shows a disgruntled airline passenger striking back at airport security. watch as 59-year-old carol price walks over to a tsa supervisor at the ft. myers, florida, airport. she sets down her bags. and then, this. watch again, as price seems to inappropriately touch the agent. all in an effort, she says, to demonstrate what happened to her while being patted down moments earlier. >> it was a customer complaint of an extremely inappropriate search. she did not touch the supervisor as intrusively as she was touched. >> reporter: instead of making a point, price was charged with misdemeanor battery. she isn't the first passenger to complain about an intrusive security search.
7:16 am
in april, this woman in chicago was driven to tears after what she felt was an inappropriate pat-down. this man in portland was so fed up, he decided to show up to security naked. and last year, this 61-year-old woman was arrested for touching a screener's breast during a pat-down in phoenix. fellow fliers flocked to facebook to defend her, calling her a hero. in a statement, the tsa says, it, quote, will not tolerate assault against its workforce. noting that price's search was conducted according to established protocols. which means, what started as a customer complaint at the airport, will now be heard as a criminal complaint in court next month. for "good morning america," bazi kanani, abc news, miami. >> we'll let you know what happens in court next month. now, to a health scare for one baseball announcer that played out on live tv. texas rangers broadcaster, david barnett, is being tested, now, for possible stroke after his play-by-play turned to gibberish
7:17 am
during monday night's game. and abc's cecilia vega has the latest. >> reporter: it was the bottom of the eighth. the san diego padres versus the texas rangers. when suddenly, things took a bizarre turn. listen as texas announcer dave barnett appears to have a mental meltdown. >> go-ahead run is at fifth. on what adams is insisting on calling a botched robbery. actually what happened was is his henchman. >> reporter: fifth base? a botched robbery? henchman? it was incoherent and had nothing to do with baseball. barnett's microphone may have been switched off, as many fans feared he was having a stroke. he eventually recovered. and the incident could be the recurrence of migraine headaches. it's not the first time this has happened on live television. >> we had a very dare -- let's
7:18 am
go -- >> reporter: last february, this los angeles reporter gave a garbled report during the grammys. she, too, said the incident was due to migraine-related symptoms. doctors say sometimes the symptoms pass quickly. but that incoherent speech could also be a warning of a stroke. >> part of a blood vessel can rupture, such as a balloon or an aneurysm. those need to be treated early. >> reporter: barnett went on to finish the rest of monday's game. but he'll sit out for the next two while he undergoes further tests. for "good morning america," cecilia vega, abc news, los angeles. >> we hope everything checks out fine for dave. >> his pacing and tone were exactly on-point. he had no idea what he was saying. time, now, for the weather. you have decided, sam, to come on inside. >> it's cooler in here, robin, george. we have a.c. in times square. not out there. summer starts, as we talked about, when the direct rays of
