7:01 am
`was found barely breathing as `family and friends rally by his `side. ` and one of the craziest `baseball plays you'll ever see. `the catcher hits the player's `bat with a flow, a runner scores `to take the lead, even the `umpires are confused. `>> they're going crazy. `>> fans throw bottles on the `feel, benches clear not once but `twice. `we'll show you what happened `next. ` everybody, just calm down. `>> good morning, america. `talk about a seventh inning `stretch. `took 53 minutes for the seventh `inning right there. `what a crazy game. `the rangers versus the blue `jays, see that runner come home. `he was allowed to run even `though the umpire was waving it `off. `it was just an insane inning. `we'll tell you what happened. `>> t.j. will have all the `details. ` but we begin with breaking `news. `president obama announcing he `will leave thousands of troops `in afghanistan beyond next year, `halting the withdrawal.

7:03 am
`but today's announcement is a `big step for president obama, `who was the man who wanted to `end both wars only to find them `both flaring up again, robin. `>> all right, martha, we'll see `how this plays on capitol hill. `>> he did not want to make this `decision but felt forced into `it. ` that disruption overnight at `some of the biggest airports in `the country. `customs computers shut down `delaying thousands of passengers `raising serious questions about `security. `abc's aviation correspondent `david kerley has all the latest. `good morning. `>> reporter: good morning, `george. `dulles international airport, `one of the airports hit `overnight, a computer glitch `making it difficult to get in or `out of the country. `line, long lines all a result of `the computer system that checks `the terror watch list, the no `fly list against those who do `want to fly. `it went down meaning getting in `and out of the country was not `easy. `customs and border patrol says `it does have means to check the `no-fly list with those trying to `board planes, but obviously it
7:04 am
`slowed the system dramatically. `>> it's crazy. `i never saw anything like this. `>> reporter: the department of `homeland security says there is `no indication this was a hack or `caused by terrorism. `>> they said it was a nationwide `computer glitch and we all had `to wait. `>> reporter: and wait, they did. `at international airports across `the country, all affected when `this system went down. `passengers taken to social media `with pictures of their line, one `saying, customs outage was a `blast. `the problem affected those `trying to leave or enter the `country. `overnight, customs and border `protection telling abc news, `quote, it experienced a `temporary outage and took `immediate action to address the `technology disruption. `now, temporary outage lasted `about 90 minutes. `customs and border protection `tells me they do have these `glitches often but don't `normally rise to the system `going down like it did last `night, robin. `>> quite a nightmare. `thank you. ` now to a wildfire in texas `exploding in size overnight. `thousands of acres burned.

7:06 am
`night desperate to keep the fire `from engulfing any more homes. `>> we're starting the operation `to light a backing fire to try `and get some containment on the `wildfire. `>> reporter: and firefighters `are making progress on that `number. `it is now up to 15% containment. `they obviously want that number `to go up but are facing another `day of hot temperatures, robin. `>> thank you, clayton. `we'll talk about that record `heat, powerful wind gusts in the `south are fueling that fire `right now. `ginger, you have more on that. `>> we could see broken records `from austin to houston, dallas, `jackson, little rock, pretty `much anybody on the map in the `okay and red there, just a few `hundred miles north and just `north of that cold front, oh, `it's cold. `freeze warnings and watches from `the northern plains by tomorrow `morning to chicago, suburbs `could see a frost and then you `go and the core of that cold air `moves to the east. `look how chilly atlanta, 44. `nashville, 37. `boston the old 32 by sunday `morning. `>> thanks very much. ` the race for president now, `"your voice, your vote." `and front-runners riding high.

7:08 am
`they're in or they're not in, `will have to make whatever `judgment is best for them. `>> reporter: her rival that is `in the race, making a victory `lap after tuesday's performance. `vermont senator bernie sanders, `that's him, dancing on "ellen." `>> who has better hair, you or `donald trump? `>> that goes without saying. `>> yeah. `>> reporter: that famous hair `drawing thousands to a rally in `virginia. `>> last night, with bernie `sanders and hillary and the `other three guys that nobody `even knows who the hell they `are, who are they? `>> reporter: but the donald `wasn't the only trump making `news. `ivanka saying her dad would make `a great president for women. `>> he's blunt, he's direct. `he is nongender specific in his `criticism of people. `he would be incredible for women `in this country. `>> reporter: and ivanka says she `is a close friend of chelsea `clinton and says politics and `friendship lines do not cross.
7:09 am
`i want to read you what she `said. `the politics of our parents is `not relative to our friendship, `george. `i'm not sure her parents would `be able to say the same thing `today. `>> let's hope they can keep it `up. `okay, cecilia, thanks very much. `to jon karl about this and, jon, `vice president biden saying he `was proud of what he saw on the `debate stage but it comes as a `lot of democrats seem to think `the door is closing on a `possible bid by him. `he's not saying anything. `>> reporter: no decision yet `from biden but i've got to tell `you i've spoken to a lot of `biden confidant, people very `close to the vice president, `there is a growing sense even `among them that he may have `waited too long, that the `decision is being made for him. `i mean, the debate, a big `factor, as one biden longtime `friend told me he needed to be `at that debate. `this biden friend said if you're `going to run for president you `actually need to run the party `instead of seeing a wounded `front-runner with hillary `clinton out there saw a very `strong performance for hillary `clinton and much less of a
7:10 am
`rationale for biden to get into `the race. `>> first deadline october 29th. `the vice president had lunch `with the president yesterday. `this could be putting the `president in kind of a tricky `situation. `what's the white house thinking? `>> reporter: well, i got to tell `you, i cannot find a single `senior staff member in the white `house, a single senior aide to `the president who thinks biden `is going to run. `the clear sense in the west wing `is that he will not run `although, george, all of those `senior officials acknowledge `that they don't know for sure `anything. ` a health alert about a `supplements. `a new study finds they are `responsible for sending more `than 20,000 people a year to the `emergency room. `many of them children and young `adults. `abc's dr. richard besser is here `and, rich, this is the first `study of its kind. `tell us more about what it `discovered. `>> the first time anyone has `taken a look to see, did there

8:38 am
`and i am here with tony gonzales `and, tony, yes. `tony, everybody. `and i got to say i had an `opportunity to play against you `when i was with the giants and `you were with the chiefs and you `were with the atlanta falcons `and made a documentary with you `detailing your journey `throughout your career and life `with your brother, chris, and `how was it to see this unfold at `the tribeca film festival to see `your life unfold in front of `everybody. `>> first of all it's surreal `when you see everybody looking `at the personal side. `that's always been the football `side but i was really proud of `the story that we told like you `said it was my journey to one of `the best years of my life. `we went to the nfc championship `life but my brother's journey `and the way it chronicled our `family and how we support each `other is a side of our nfl lives `that most people don't get to `see. `it was really unique from that `standpoint watching how we `support each other and how i `supported my brother through his `journey of becoming a fireman. `>> here's a player who brings a `family with him. `your case is a little different.
8:39 am
`you did bring your family with `you but it was your brother's `dream to play football and he `stepped in and did a lot of `things that a father would do `for you to make sure you made it `and how is the relationship with `your brother? `i know you two didn't talk for a `year and a half after this film `was made. `>> you know, he sacrificed a lot `of his life and his dreams to `really support mine and really `help me. `he was that confidant and that `no guy. `you have a lot of yes people but `he was that no guy. `you're not that good. `you're getting out of hand. `why don't we go home and shut it `down early. `after the doc was shot we `stopped talking and maybe that `was because football got taken `away. `that was always our common `ground. `what we always spoke about but `went through ups and downs but `we are talking today and it's `one of those things, you got to `get it wrong before you get it `right and i think our `relationship now is stronger `than ever. `>> and what do you hope people `take away from this film? `>> you know, like i debated on `whether or not to tell anybody `we stopped talking for a year `and a half after the documentary
8:40 am
`because we supported each other `but i want people to take away `the family dynamic and how we `support -- we're just one story `of many out there. `but like i said in the film `it'll make you laugh. `it'll make you cry but most of `all it's going to make you cheer `not just for sports but for `life. `just chasing your dreams and `getting after it and supporting `each other. `>> it's a family film. `talk about families supporting `each other, helping each other `reach their dreams. `that's what we're all about at `"gma." `we'll send it back to you, amy. `>> all right, thanks so much. `coming up your all access pass `to speaking of family i need `some help here, how to get away `with murder. `>> murder. `>> the cast sharing their `secrets about each other next on
