whipping winds creating whiteout conditions. this bus tipping over. the dramatic rescue as temperatures plunge up and down the east coast. and a new storm on the way threatening to wreak havoc for millions of holiday travelers. and breaking overnight, kanye west hospitalized hours after canceling his tour. >> get ready. get ready because the show is over. >> just days after this rant on stage we'll have his condition. we do say, good morning, america and a lot of news to get to this morning, just one day away from the biggest travel day of the year. >> right in time for that day, robin, the snow is piling up. take a look at this time-lapsed video of upstate new york.
7:02 am
i'm sure some aren't. ginger will be here with much more on your holiday forecast. >> a lot of information that people need. we have to begin with sad news. that bus crash in tennessee. the school bus flipped on its side hit trees killing at least five young children. that bus driver now under arrest facing charges and amy is on the scene in chattanooga with the latest. good morning, amy. >> reporter: good morning, george. it is a devastating morning here in chattanooga. the accident happened on this road right here behind me just a few hundred feet up around mile from school as you mentioned, 35 kids on that bus and in addition to those who were killed, dozens of others were injured. and the posted speed limb on this road, 30 miles per hour. federal investigators are now looking into whether excessive speed was a factor in this tragedy. >> the bus has flipped over. it is occupied with children. >> reporter: a bus full of children on their way home from elementary school runs off the road slamming into these trees
7:03 am
went outside to look and we saw that the bus had turned over and apparently had hit the house across the street. they were escaping through the roof hatch. >> reporter: police believe excessive speed may have been a factor. they have charged the bus driver, johnthony walker, with five counts of vehicular homicide and reckless driving. >> we executed a search warrant for his blood. the investigation will know if there was any outside influences on his ability to drive a car, to drive a vehicle. we don't know at this time. what we do know now his behavior was to the point of recklessness and it met the criteria for filing charges for vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. >> reporter: at least five of the students dead and two dozen others injured. as emergency personnel race to
7:04 am
to their children. the bus so mangled it took more than two hours to get the students to safety. the local hospital overwhelmed as ambulance after ambulance arrived. >> our thoughts and prayers are with their families, their schools, their friends and our entire community impact the by this tragedy. >> reporter: hundreds gathered at area hospitals standing in long lines to give blood. >> this is an absolute nightmare but i can assure you chattanooga are prepared and trained to make sure this is investigated thoroughly. >> reporter: authorities planning to review the video from the school bus to figure out exactly what happened. we just saw a massive tow truck and a flatbed right in front of me going up to the scene of that bus crash. they'll be removing the bus shortly because the investigation has gone on through the evening but so many people do want answers including the parents of children who were on that bus just a few moments
7:05 am
parent, craig harris. craig, thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> i know your daughter, your stepson and your niece were all on that bus. how are they doing this morning. >> this morning they are doing a lot better. my daughter and my stepson, they're in a lot of pain and a little bit of shock still but for the most part they're fine. my niece, she is in recovery this morning. she just got out of surgery about an hour ago and they're just keeping a close eye on her. she might lose her arm. that's how severe her injuries were. >> they had to go into her leg and remove a vein to replace the one torn from her arm. she is looking at a long road to recovery and a lot more surgeries but she's here. >> i can't imagine the moment when you got word that your children were involved in a bus accident and a severe bus accident. tell me when you first heard and what happened next.
7:06 am
it's been a big fear of mine and which first heard i literally had -- i almost lost it and hi to sit down and gain my composure. i had to calm my wife down and other family members that were also affected by this and it just -- it was just -- it's something i never want to face again. >> so you get the word. you go to this room and you're waiting to find out if your children are okay or not. >> i can say that they did the best they could and in my eyes they did the best they could because there were so many people down at the hospital at the time and so many families just in the same boat that i was in. >> waiting to hear if their children were dead or alive. >> right. >> what was that room like of parents? were you comforting each other? >> yes, we were. some people were easier to calm than others. >> have you seen the bus driver,
7:07 am
>> i don't know him. i don't know him personally. honestly, he -- there has been times where i saw him faster than he probably should be going. >> and that concerned you as a parent. did you ever have worries putting your children on that school bus. >> yes, ma'am. that's the reason why i tried to be there in the mornings when he's pulling up so i can try to get a rhythm for what he was doing and also in the evenings because up the treat and drop them off. some days he would go down the street and drop them off. i'm not a bus driver so i'm not sure how what their protocol is but i kind of figured that that wasn't something he was supposed to be doing. >> well, the ntsb investigating his actions and he is in custody at this hour so we do know that much. in terms of what's next for this community, i know that to see those lines with people giving blood had to be so incredibly
7:08 am
what's the impact on this community? >> for me there was a silver lining in this because i did see my city come together yesterday. >> we'll take that. craig, thank you so much and wishing your children a speedy recovery, physically and mentally because there's a long road ahead for everyone. >> yes, ma'am. definitely. >> speaking of coming together woodmore elementary cool is actually open and want to provide staff and members of the community. >> this accident is raising major questions about school bus safety. the ntsb is launching a go team to investigate there in chattanooga. abc's david kerley joins us with more on that and, david, what can we expect from this team to do in its investigation? >> well, the ntsb looks at all the factors, robin. they'll look at the weather. they'll look at the equipment, the bus and whether or not it
7:09 am
pictures tell so much from this story, robin. you can see that bus, looks like it rolled onto its side and hit the tree and just folded around that tree. but that's all the things the ntsb will look at. think about this, robin. on average, five schoolkids are killed in a bus accident every year. six were killed yesterday. >> yes, all right, david. thank you very much and, again, the investigation continues and our hearts go out to the families in the community there parents are going through. okay, we are going to move on and get the latest on president-elect trump. transition in full swing at trump tower. last night he released a youtube video. david wright reports from trump tower. good morning. >> reporter: this videotaped message outlining an agenda for the first 100 days steers clear
7:10 am
proposals. trump focused on things he can do immediately by executive order and this is really the first time we've heard extensively from the president-elect since election night. >> our transition team is working very smoothly, efficiently and effectively truly great and talented men and women patriots, indeed, are being brought in and many will soon be a part of our government. >> reporter: a short restrained speech talking directly to the american people. >> i want the next generation of production and happen right here on our great homeland. america. >> reporter: trump promises to renegotiate trade deals, ease restrictions on energy production, crack down on immigration abuses and impose a lobbying ban for all workers in the executive branch. >> i will provide more updates in the coming days as we work together to make america great again for everyone and i mean everyone. >> reporter: revolving door meetings continue including
7:11 am
jobs. among them former governor rick perry of texas who was sharply critical of trump during the primaries. >> donald trump's candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and must be diagnosed, excised and discarded. >> reporter: he was recently voted off "dancing with the stars" now hoping for a cabinet post and trump met with hawaii congresswoman gabbert. compassion is bigger than any one of us. >> reporter: not the republican convention but the democratic one talking about bernie sanders. the 35-year-old progressive now considering coming over to trump. >> i think there's a recognition that there is a big country out there with lots of voters that feel disaffected from their party, the democrats. >> reporter: sorry. sorry.
7:12 am
what's triking here is what trump leaves out. he's not talking about repealing obamacare or locking hillary clinton up. he's focused here on what -- on reaching out to all the american people, george. >> david wright, thanks very much. more on this from our chief political analyst matthew dowd. matt, thanks for joining us this morning. we just saw that youtube video as david mentioned. trump did not get into things he's not doing. also facing questions right now about these conflicts of interest. he has had a series of ivanka trump sitting in on the meeting with the japanese prime minister and meetings with his indian business partners and yesterday mr. trump talking to his british officials about wind farms in britain, even republicans now starting to raise questions about these conflicts. >> george, i think the biggest problematic thing for president-elect trump in his administration ahead isn't his appointments which a lot of people have been disturbed about or isn't his policies that he's
7:13 am
it could be this issue with interests around the world and it looks like him putting this in a blind trust run by his children won't be clean enough. even "the wall street journal" said he ought to liquidate all his assets of the problem if he doesn't do that and clean it up he'll be subject to conflicts of interest charges and could be subject to corruption charges and finally he could actually be subject to constitutional questions as you know, there is a clause in the constitution, called the it means you cannot take advantage or benefit from a foreign state or a foreign government. that's a huge problem for donald trump. >> the trump team says they are going to put structures in place. we'll see what is coming as the transition goes on. some word this morning that perhaps donald trump will not pursue this investigation of hillary clinton. that probably makes sense. >> i think that makes sense. i think most of his voters could care less. most want him to change their economic life. they could tear less about hillary clinton.
7:14 am
interests around him but he would be better to just move on. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. george, we'll move on to that terror arrest in new york just days before thanksgiving. our chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with more. good morning, brian. >> reporter: well, good morning, robin. with preparations well under way for heavy security around the big thanksgiving day parade, the fbi has arrested a brooklyn man who tried to join isis and talked of an attack right here in times square. the fbi moved in after more than a yea mohamed rafik naji. officials said the suspect tried to join isis overseas and then returned to new york expressing support and recorded conversations for an attack like the one in nice, france, where an isis follower drove a semi truck through crowds attending the bastille day celebration killing 84 people. if there is a truck, he said, i mean a garbage truck and one drives it there to times square and crushes them, times square
7:15 am
this individual was following isis direction to carry out an attack against a large crowd. >> reporter: earlier this month, isis posted an online message praising that attack in france and calling on other followers to use speeding vehicles to attack outdoor events featuring a picture of the new york thanksgiving day parade. now new york police are sending a clear message to not even think about an attack announcing an unprecedented level of security to guard the balloons, traditional counterterrorism -- we'll see people out there. >> reporter: the new york police will deploy a military battalion of officers, some 5,000 of them assigned to the parade including snipers on the rooftop, 81 huge trucks filled with sand to block vehicles, all along the two-mile-long route which passes two big trump properties, robin. >> as always if you see something, say something. all right, brian, thank you.
7:16 am
in new york in the middle of that first major snowstorm of the season. standing outside there freezing. gio, creating quite a mess on roads for people. >> reporter: what a mess, michael. good morning to you. listen, this is the third straight morning that people here have been waking up to all this snow. can you just imagine having to shovel all of this stuff out. especially when you hear that some parts of this area have 40 inches of snow. overnight winter's first the storm hammering parts of upstate new york, dropping more than 40 inches of snow in some areas, homes buried. the whipping winds and whiteout conditions leaving highways hazardous littered with wreckage. just take a look at this heart-stopping moment caught on tape. a bus overturning while trying to avoid this spun out car. austin beeching and his family watched in horror as it tipped
7:17 am
inside but they were all okay. we got them out of the emergency exit. >> reporter: of the 40 high school passengers on board, luckily only nine suffered minor injuries. and because of the icy conditions near rochester, one person lost their life. as they slid straight into the path of an oncoming tractor trailer showing how ferocious the storm has become across new england. >> we have a lot of accidents until people learn to slow down a little bit. >> you can see the rapid accumulation of snow this could be just the beginning of a lingering travel nightmare as we head into a busy holiday weekend. and so the good news right now all this snowfall will stop today but now attention turns out to the west. that's going to cause some major, major travel problems out there for the holidays, michael. >> thank you, gio. back in times square you have a look at the weather coming up for everybody getting ready to travel. >> that's right. wouldn't be thanksgiving if we didn't have a storm to talk
7:18 am

7:36 am
deprivation, sounds serious. >> it does. i think when you're hospitalized for something like in this is not someone who can't get sleep. it seems like something way more serious. i don't know any pop star who's seemed more unhappy than kanye west. he had -- >> about what. >> he has critical acclaim and all these other things but seems to be -- he just doesn't get enough attention. he seems to always have -- he's constantly having fights with people whether it's taylor swift or now jay z and beyonce and sets up these sort of reaction at his concert by saying he voted for donald trump. >> no, he didn't vote -- >> would have voted for donald trump. >> a double whammy there. he -- i don't want to be too glib about this but seems to crave attention and has for a very long time and the accolades he gets when it comes to his music don't seem to be enough. he just has to be in the public eye. >> and the timing a little bit strange, the same night that kim was supposed to re-emerge in the public spotlight. >> just watching that report,
7:37 am
case, this is like a pop culture fruitcake. i mean the amount of connects these people have around them and yet still, you know, chaos and what seems to be unhappiness. >> how does someone like kanye re-emerge from something like this. >> i think professionally there will be a great amount of attention. when he gets out of the hospital, back into the studio, when he's reunited with kim, this is the stuff of the life he leads, you know, in the public sphere. what happens with the music and what happens with what t it seems as if the art has become secondary to the kind of public posture and public life. >> sure seems like it. hackett hablth, thanks very much. over to michael. >> thank you, george. coming up on our big board, chipotle under fire. the restaurant chain being sued. did they mislead customers about the calories in some burritos? a big exclusive. we've got that never before heard prince music, the debut is just two minutes away. tay right there.

oh, get ready for this. welcome back. time now for our big board and breaking down more of this morning's top stories. dan abrams is our man at the table and start off with that calorie controversy. chipotle is being sued by customers who claim the company's menu misrepresents nutritional information citing the chain's chorizo burrito described as having just 300 calories. >> they're saying they got duped. they want to file a class action. person who bought a chorizo burrito assuming it was 300 calories. now, ready for this? it's not 300 calories, okay. as it turns out and i'm going to put together a quick bun for you. if you want to put together one of these, you have chorizo, 300 calories, the torety joe, 300. brown rice, 210. guac, 230.
7:41 am
not really -- so they're basically saying it's a legal matter in california. it's a great place to file this kind of lawsuit that they want to put together all these people who bought them and sue for damages. >> there's a sign that said it was 300 calories but on their website chipotle had the accurate calorie count so does that help them in their legal defense. >> that's going to be one of their defenses. one is going to be, look, this wasn't intentional. this was accidental. they say the 300 calories was you could have gone to our website, also in these kinds of lawsuits you have to be able to prove, "a," you bought it. "b," you bought it because it was 300 calories and what are the damages? so even when people win these kinds of lawsuits, it tends to be the price of the burrito. >> that's about it. >> yeah. so it's not like -- anyone is going to get rich over the burrito lawsuit. >> the damages could be to your

7:43 am
july 6th, 1982 so it's a 34-year-old song and was recorded the night of a total lunar eclipse. how about that? it's never just coincidence with prince. well, the estate says next year they're putting out a refurbished version of "purple rain" and in connection with that an entire new cd of unreleased songs from the vault. shangri-la for prince fans, so much stuff we've been dying to hear and i year will be our big opportunity. >> so much there but as you keep referring to the estate, we're all very aware of this ongoing legal battle. where does that tan right now. >> it's a $300 million estate i guess by some people's reckoning and two people are in charge of the music and its distribution and that all seems to be going relatively smoothly but as far as the estate itself i guess there's -- he died without an heir, without a spouse and without a will. so i guess there's a sister and
7:44 am
things six ways. there have been other people who have attempted to get a piece of the estate and you know i think the court is sort of been sorting their way through that. >> dan, i want to ask you. we've seen battles over estates in the past. is there an end in sight to this? how ugly could it get. >> i think it will end soon. as chris mentioned you have a few people who have come forward and been dismissed. someone said, for example, that prince's family treated them like a son, rig is, well, no, that's not enough. i think it will get resolved. >> the estate will continue to grow. >> exactly, exactly. more and more valuable. >> dan, chris, thank you very much. you can listen to the full version of prince's "moonbeam levels" on our live stream listening party that starts at 9:00 a.m. eastern. >> coming up in two minutes as millions get ready to travel for thanksgiving, our investigation, what some flight crews say can get into the plane's cabin and make you sick. you don't want to miss that.

additive containing that toxin. tricresyl phosphate. tcp. if there is a leak it could mean fumes in the cabin. creating an odd smell like dirty socks. what do the doctors tell you. >> that i have central nervous system damage. from the chemical. >> reporter: memory loss, balance issues, headaches can result if enough of that chemical is inhaled. the captain says his symptoms were so ba faa he was no longer safe to fly. were you ever in the cockpit again? >> no, that ended my career. >> reporter: they pulled your license. >> pulled my license. >> reporter: the flight attendants union says on average once a day there is a fume event on 1 of the 35,000 flights crisscrossing our country. most incidents don't cause a problem. >> it's a safety issue that the airlines should be addressing and they should make them address it and they're not
7:49 am
aircraft manufacturers, boeing and airbus say the air on their jets is healthy and safe pointing out that many aircraft have pepa filters. those can capture some but not all of the toxin according to experts. we decided to check. so on five different flights on four different airlines we tested the air with these monitors. the other test is a swab test. take this swab and run one side over this to see if any of the chemical is those surfaces. the results, every swab picked up traces of that chemical tcp which could be due to an accumulation from several flights. and the air monitors, while they didn't find the chemical they did find evidence of small amounts of jet engine oil which would suggest a leak. but while these oil leaks and fumes are possible, experts and even those who have been affected say the risk to passengers is low.
7:50 am
plane? how do i protect myself. >> there is no way. >> you should be aware of it. >> reporter: for "good morning america," david kerley, abc news, america. >> the faa responded to this and say the air is safe on the vast majority of flights but admit air can be contaminated after certain mechanical failures and the flight attendants union are making sure they have all sensors installed to detect the toxins and filter them out. coming up as millions get ready to travel we've got more on the big come on back. coming up "gma's" ultimate cranberry challenge brought to you by ocean spray cranberries. the unofficial official fruit of the holidays. oliday time, and no fruit is as versatile as our ocean spray cranberries, which is why we're declaring it "the unofficial official fruit of the holidays." the fig's gonna be so bummed.
