8:10 am
the stakes are so high here for president obama, if europe falls into a recession, that could bring us down. and that of course, damages the president's chances of getting re-elected. did he make any progress at this summit? >> he tried. he tried to get all of the leaders to agree to get growth in the short term spending cuts. he got all of the leaders to say that this is what they're focussed on what right now. we'll see what they actually agree on and the big date coming up, dan, is june 17th, that's the date of the greek elections and the greeks haven't been able to come to any agreement on how to pay any their debts. the rest of the european countries aren't sure they want to bail them out. that's the crisis point. if the greeks can't continue to pay their debts, after that election, the domino effect could start to fall. it's not overstating the proposition to say that what
8:11 am
happens in greece has a lot more impact on president obama's re-election than almost anything that could happen here in the united states over the next six months. >> that's so fascinating. george stephanopoulos, thank you very much for your insight. i want to remind people, do not miss later this morning, george will be on "this week," speaking exclusively to the house speaker john boehner and the house democratic leader nancy pelosi. we turn now to the latest tragedy involving the kennedy family, mary richardson kennedy's siblings stayed far away from their funeral as robert f. kennedy jr. and his four children and close friends said good-bye. a who's who filling the church, we have more now from abc's taina rivero. >> reporter: gingerly carrying their mother's casket out of church, later kneeling in prayer before it was lowered into her grave,

8:13 am
james, susan sarandon and kennedy luminaries paying respects. some shocking absences, several of mary's siblings didn't attend, blaming robert for many of mary's struggles. the bitterness between the families led to a court battle on friday as both sides made separate plans to mourn mary. her brother filed a last-minute lawsuit over her remains, the couple's $4 million house and control over her final resting place. but, still, her legal husband, the judge ruled in robert's favor and mary was buried near the kennedy compound in hyannisport. where her children parade that she would finally be at peace. the richardson family announced their own plans to hold a memorial tomorrow at a manhattan hotel. what is not as certain is how many kennedys will attend. >> and her ex-husband robert f.

8:15 am
this 911 call late in april. he said that she was taken from her bedroom, window screen removed. days later, he made this public plea for his daughter's return. >> we're looking for you. we love you. >> reporter: one week ago, child protective services played the celis' sons in soul custody of the mother. fueling speculation that sergio celis may be connected to isabel's disappearance. >> when you put anyone under a microscope, like isabel's family is under a microscope, you see things that don't look like right and they end up getting reported. and i think that's what happened in this case. >> reporter: investigators maintain they can't rule out her parents but they say the family has been cooperative since the beginning. for the first time, the police are calling this abduction. rebecca celis is turning to the community to keep isabel's story
8:16 am
alive. >> i know in my heart she's somewhere out there. >> police say they are still working under the assumption that isabel is still alive. they have gotten more than 1,000 tips so far. but none have led them to isabel. dan? >> such a sad story. this has been an interesting weekend for mark zuckerberg, on friday, his company, a little outfit called facebook, started selling shares on wall street, instantly earning the 28-year-old $19 billion on paper at least. and then yesterday, he got married in a secret, surprise ceremony. ron is back with this pretty major status update. >> an interesting week. a huge week for mark zuckerberg. on monday he celebrated his 28th birthday. on friday, facebook had its ipo. and yesterday, he tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend. >> let's do this. >> reporter: on friday, this seemed to be the biggest day of mark zuckerberg's young life. taking his company public and making himself $20 billion

8:18 am
roberts about the how the story she told from the e.r. help to spire a new initiative on facebook, organ donation. >> our dinner conversations, often about facebook and kids and the kids that she's meeting. she'll see them getting sicker and then all of a sudden, an organ comes available. she likes she comes home and her face is all lit up, because, someone's life is going to be better because of this. >> now she is mrs. zuckerberg and her young billionaire's life is just a little richer. and the bride's wedding ring was described as a simple ruby, designed by zuckerberg. so far on zuckerberg's facebook page, his website has gotten 664,000 likes. dan, you were saying, what's next for zuckerberg? we have this breaking news. he's taking over the nation of andorra, even as we speak.

8:21 am
addressing the looming shortage of helium. a world without it. no floaty balloons. no flat blimps. >> no way to alter your voice in a juvenile way. and there are other critical uses as abc's dan kloeffler shows us. >> reporter: imagine a birthday party without balloons? skies without blimps? and thanksgiving parade falling flat. take a deep breath. because the helium bubble could burst. right now, the federal helium reserve, yes, the government keeps a lid on a third of the world's supply, it's pricey to store it. the government is offering fire sales to buy it. once it's gone, it's gone. so, folks, might get desperate to get this party staple. how many balloons do you blow up on the weekend? >> 500, 600.
8:22 am
>> why the shortage? bare with me, it gets technical. 1996, most be sold off by 2015. which means, whole sailers have the opportunity to get 11,000 acres of helium at half-price. as we float closer to that deadline the supply is dropping off and party guys like ken are getting wrapped up in skyward helium costs. how much has the price gone up? >> almost 20%. >> reporter: almost 20%. it would stop a lot of science. helium gets rockets into space. puts lcd screens in our living rooms and even helps doctors provide mris. as for parties. there aren't many options. if not helium, what could we feel it with? >> with regular air, it doesn't go. >> reporter: so you're anti-air? which explains why a world

welcome back, everybody. as a fellow michiganite -- ginger is also from michigan. both of us got caught in rip currents on lake michigan. fascinated by this next story you're about to do. >> as a child growing up there, it happens all the time. in the summer and spring especially in the great lakes and also in the oceans, it's something that i covered for years. but this time, i went inside the rip current myself, in the ocean, and here's what i learned. it's one of the ocean's most deadly threats. more deadly than lightning, hurricanes and tornadoes combined in an average year. it is a rip current. >> it's kind of like a river pulling out to sea. >> the strongest swimmer doesn't match up to the power of the ocean. >> reporter: that power piles up close to the shore a, a fast-moving river rushes back out to sea. so my natural inclination was to get in one. this is it. i'm suiting.
8:41 am
funny, i haven't had a wetsuit on for i don't know for how long. let me grab this. i feel like a superhero. not quite. >> so, when you enter the water in front of us, you'll take a diagonal path out. it should carry you northerly out to sea. surrounded by safety, one of the san diego guards will be with me the whole time and above, a coast guard chopper is monitoring everything. i am definitely nervous and mostly nervous because they tell me that the water temperature is somewhere in the low 60s. here we go. oh, my gosh. i just sat down. i feel it get deeper quickly and the waves aren't breaking where we are. that's a good sign that you're in a rip current. within seconds i'm sucked out to sea. now, i am really in the rip current. i had been pulled hundreds of
8:42 am
yards in less than a minute. look at how far i am from the beach. what people end up doing is, when they're swimming, they look straight out. when you turn around, all of a sudden, you're hundreds of yards from where you're started. it happened in seconds. so my instinct is to swim directly where i came from. then, i'll have to go against the current. it's what most people do and that's a mistake. my swimming is very labored. definitely not easy. and i made absolutely no progress. then waves after waves and panic sets in. >> people look at where they started and that's where they want to swim to, and when they can't get closer to where they started, they don't swim straight in, they panic and they get tired. >> one arm up and that's where the guards come in. they have me on the board and on to the beach in no time. look at these rip currents from
8:43 am
above. they can pop up anywhere along the beach. what you need to know, they always form near piers and jetties. within two minutes, we're hundreds of yards from the shore. the current would carry us along the jetty all of the way out, and when i tried to swim straight back -- just tried to fight the current. not matter how hard i tried, i was not able to make any progress at all. this is the strongest rip that i have been in all day. the only reason i feel comfortable doing this is to show powerful they are and also i have a ride. >> that's right. you have to respect it. you have to know that it's a larger being you are. >> reporter: the point is to make sure you don't need help in the future and a pleasant swim in the ocean will be just that. "good morning america."
8:44 am
>> oh, taking on a lot water there. here's what you need to know to stay alive, if you get caught in a rip current, number one, you have to stay relaxed. next, rip currents aren't that wide. if you swim parallel to the beach you'll likely get away from that river of fast-moving water. then you get back to where you came from. you don't have to go straight back. all of these tips. but they said number one, if you have a life guarded-beach versus a nonlife guarded beach you got to do that. >> great tips. thank you, ginger. >> glad you're okay. coming up here on the broadcast -- a dog, a rake and a geometry problem, keep it here for that.
