considering new steps to make planes stronger. abc's david kerley is at reagan national with all the details. good morning, david. >> good morning, robin. it's a big question and a serious one. did jetmakers in the future need to redesign their jets to make us safer to survive a bird strike. we see what they can do. a passenger videotaping a landing and a flock of birds and at least one of them ingested into an engine. that plane landed safely but that's not always the case. we do remember the miracle on the hudson the plane landing after both engines were hit. there was a deadly crash in oklahoma a small plane went down after being hit by birds. five killed there. and large birds can do plenty of damage to a jetliner's nose engine wings and tail. so the faa wants to know if it is time to require strengthening those area basically redesigning parts for future jets. why raise this question? that's because the number of bird hits is up six times over the past three decades.
7:12 am
why is that? because the bird population is going up robin. it's up for american geese and canadian geese 40% in the past three decades so the faa says maybe it's time to strengthen these jetliners. >> perhaps it is. all right david, thank you. >> thank you. woo he'll move on to an alarming new video that raises questions about car safety from and shows us how someone could hack in your car while on the road and disable it by remote control and tom llamas has the story. >> reporter: the hackers who did this is a there are more than 470,000 vehicles out on the road that are vulnerable right now. they say the threat is real an now congress is getting involved. this morning, u.s. senators hitting the hazard button trying to put the brakes on what you're about to see. >> i can't see anything because of the [ bleep ] windshield wiper fluid. >> reporter: hackers taking over this driver's jeep cherokee gaining complete control on a st. louis highway and shutting the vehicle down. >> so we're killing the engine. >> actually can't accelerate.

>> reporter: this is not science fiction. "wired" magazine posting the video and report on their site exposing the terrifying new danger some drivers now face. >> it's very unnerving to lose control of your car on the highway. >> reporter: the hackers able to get into the driver's seat through the car's wi-fi system called you connect and if that's not scary enough watch what they do here. >> okay hold on tight. hold on. oh [ bleep ]. >> reporter: they remotely disable the brakes. the cherokee sliding uncontrollably into a ditch. >> oh [ bleep ]. >> reporter: fiat chrysler automobiles which maybes the jeep cherokee tells abc news they're aware of the problem and released a software update that offers customers improved vehicle security and communications enhancements. u.s. senators ed markey and richard blumenthal introducing ledge haitian that would create a rating system for consumers letting them know how protected their cars are from hackers. >> in the wrong hands this tool could be used by malicious hackers to hijack a vehicle.

resources believed by the look of it, it may be a lioness and while there have been no other confirmed sightings of the alleged feline police are not taking the threat lightly. >> we're treating it seriously. we've got a number of people out there looking. >> reporter: and while many around milwaukee are concerned, others on social media are having a bit more fun. the milwaukee bucks putting their mascot on the front line don't worry, milwaukee, we are dispatching our best guy to investigate the #mkelion and the roaming lion has its own twitter account tweeting "out for a stroll" the fun being had but to those rest dents this is no laughing matter. the milwaukee zoo says all of its animals are accounted for and they believe it may be a mountain lion tracking it closely. >> amy now has the other top stories starting with that big warehouse fire that's not far from here. >> that's right. dramatic video, robin. this morning a massive fire burning at this car repair

i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.

safe when something goes wrong. >> especially the summer season you're out on vacation. you need to know that. we begin with an apparent love triangle in california that turned deadly. a firefighter accused of killing the husband of his alleged lover. he is scheduled to appear in court today and abc's kayna whitworth has the story. >> reporter: this morning, california firefighter jonathan hearn is accused of killing his lover's husband in a love trieningle turned deadly. at the center sabrina limon. but just two days before their anniversary, robert found shot to death at this california rail yard. police first believing robert's death was a botched robbery attempt. but after three months of investigating police arrested sabrina and jonathan in november alleging the two were having an affair and conspired to kill robert together. court documents alleging hearn
7:32 am
and sabrina exchanged thousands of conversations and text messages with one saying "if robert was out of the picture they could live their lives together." documents also suggesting sabrina had hearn where robert would be working and his hours the day of the murder. the charges against sabrina dropped two days after the arrest. >> miss limon was not because of insufficient evidence. >> reporter: they maintain it was her firefighter lover who pulled the trigger, this surveillance video capturing the moments after robert's murder. police believe that's jonathan fleeing the scene. the firefighter's lawyer says it's not the case. >> it's not clear enough to really make out who the person is. you can't even tell what race or whether it's a male or female. it's a person with a limp crossing the yard. >> reporter: jonathan hearn has pled not guilty. kayna whitworth. the latest on bill cosby. his lawyer as attacking the
7:33 am
bombshell release of that deposition asking them to keep the legal settlement secret. monique pressley standing by after this from abc's linsey davis. >> reporter: this morning, bill cosby's legal team is fighting back against the release of a thousand-page deposition from 20050 where cosby described sexual encounters with at least five women and fighting to keep details of a settlement with a temple university employee private. he talks specifically about what he said was a consensual romantic relationship with andrea constand who claimed he drugged and sexually assaulted her. his lawyers argued it should have remained sealed. according to the deposition the once beloved comedian says constand was special to him saying he didn't want to have intercourse with her because andrea i don't want to fall in love with me. cosby saying he had access to phones not in his name to call constand telling his wife he was sending constand payments to
7:34 am
help her and cosby describes the quaaludes in his testimony as the drug young people were using to party, saying i wanted to have them just in case. >> this is incredibly damning in the court of public opinion. but as a legal matter it may not make much of a difference. >> reporter: never charged with sexual assault, cosby settled the constand case out of court. a source previsly telling abc news he only did so to save his family embarrassment. constand is one of more than two dozen women he's been accused of assaulting and/or drugging. something cosby's team has always denied. for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news new york. >> thanks linsey. we are joined by one of mr. cosby's attorney monique pressley. thanks for joining us this morning, miss pressley. >> thanks for having me. >> why is it so important to keep this settlement secret? >> the entire reason that parties into confidential agreements for settlement the entire reason that parties settle is because they come
7:35 am
together and agree on mutual terms and once those terps are violated then it's the entire agreement that loses its purpose. >> is there anything more you can do now that the deposition is out there? >> there are a thousand plus pages that are available of mr. cosby in his own words and what we're seeing so far are headlines that are grabbing one excerpt or two and then misinterpreting them when the deposition said that there was use of quaaludes, which was quaaludes which was done often in the '70s, it was considered a party drug called disco biscuits and it was something that was used frequently not just by mr. cosby, but other entertainers. >> let me ask you about that. more than two dozen women have come forward to say they were sexually assaulted by him. some claimed they were drugged. is it your position mr. cosby never gave a woman drugs without her knowledge? >> in fact what we're looking at now is a situation where we started with a man who had not been charged with a crime who has not been convicted of a
7:36 am
crime but instead has been accused of criminal activity. >> in fact miss pressley at one point in the deposition when asked, when bill cosby is asked if theresa was in a position to concept to sexual intercourse after being given quaaludes in 1976 he said i don't know. >> what he was speaking to in the deposition is her state of mind which no person as you know can testify to i can't say whether someone else feels a certain way or thinks a certain way. >> all of these women, more than two dozen women, all of these women are liars? i'm not making conclusions and you know that i can't about whether someone is lying or not. what i am saying is that mr. cosby has denied the accusations that have been lodged thus far. the sheer volume or number of people who are saying a particular thing does not make it true. >> this is happening in the court of public opinion.
7:37 am
if mr. cosby believes that all of these charges are untrue and he believes it so strongly why not come out publicly now and say so? >> it's not a question of belief. as i said previously mr. cosby has through his attorneys from the beginning denied the accusations against him. if anyone is being defamed right now through media, through celebrity onlookers, through others it's mr. cosby. >> so we won't be seeing any more public statements on this matter from mr. cosby? >> i would anticipate that in the cases that are still ongoing that you will see statements because when there are filings by the attorneys those are statements on mr. cosby's behalf and i do hope that as those things are filed, that those who are responsible for putting out information will take a good hard look at them and then report on what's actually being filed in court. because that's the only place where we can actually see some measure of justice. >> miss pressley thanks very much for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> they are fighting back hard

welcome back to "gma." it is time for the "heat index" and this morning's hot button new questions about freezing your eggs. is the promise of prolonged fertility too good too be true? that question is examined in the latest issue of "time" magazine and abc's mara schiavocampo has our story. >> reporter: egg freezing one of the fastest growing trends in fertility. multiple 34r50iing tenfold in the last five years for more than 500 in 2009 to just under 5,000 in 2013. the number of eggs being thawed for use quadrupling. big co apple and facebook even announcing they'll start covering the procedure. >> the idea that you kcan solve this unsolvable problem of the biological clock is very appealing to many women. >> reporter: but with a price tag of $10,000 to $15,000, not including egg storage, "time" magazine set out to answer a very simple question in an article and online video.
8:12 am
how effective is freezing your eggs? >> that was really empowering to know that i took fate into my own hands. >> reporter: "time's" extensive research finding while the procedure may give women a sense of security it might not always work that well. reporting of the 414 eggs thawed in 2013 99 babies were born a rate of just under 24%. and with a few eggs lost at each step of the process it's estimated each egg has just a 2% to 12% of resulting in a live birth. is this an effective insurance policy? >> it just isn't an insurance policy. if you have home insurance and your house burns down you get a new house. you don't maybe get a new house. you don't get 24% of a new house. >> reporter: for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo abc news new york. >> our dr. jen ashton is here right now. you'll do a demonstration that shows how big a challenge it is?
8:13 am
>> this is a very safe process. it's very effective but it's not a guarantee. and let me show you what i mean. typically when we do a stimulation cycle we'll get about 15 to 20 eggs ex-fracked from a young woman. now, then those have to be frozen and thawed not all will survive that process. let's say you wind up with this much. then they are fertilized and become embryos and grow to a certain cell division stage and be tested they're healthy enough to implant. not all will survive this stage and then in this country, we typically don't transfer or implant more than one or two fertilized embryos into a woman's uterus. from this you hope to get one or two live births. >> so the chances better if you freeze the embryos rather than the eggs? >> the egg freezing process can a little more challenging, but it is safe. it's effective. the rates are all over the place. some historical context here george remember up until 2012 this was considered an experimental process so while it's happening more and more we're still learning so much
8:14 am
more about the technology and it's only getting better. >> you're an ob/gyn. when a woman says i'm thinking about this what do you tell her? >> i ask why. you have to listen. it depends on several factors. it depends on her age. this conversation will be different for a 25-year-old and a 35-year-old. it depends on medical issues. has she been diagnosed with cancer. does she have severe endometriosis or menopause or social issues have to be balanced with risks, benefits and options. >> for fillet something men have to think about too. >> men often ig noor it throughout the process so i tell both partners they both need to keep certain things in mind. number one, don't get bogged down on stats. so easy to get overwhelmed with percentages. keep yourself healthy. that includes not smoking. that's bad for special and eggs and stay positive. this is a marathon not a sprint. >> all good advice. jen ashton thanks very much. read a lot more about this topic in the current issue of "time"
