8:01 am
>> others jumping to safety. and the rescue. so, what went wrong. and busted brackets and broken dreams. number one seed villanova sent home. >> oh, oh yeah! >> this piccolo player performing in tears. the internet having a field day with that one. as underdogs prove they've got what it takes. hard enough to play the piccolo when you're not crying. that was an amazing moment. we'll talk much more about that. good morning on a sunday when a lot of people are talking about pope francis and a purported miracle. >> he can seemingly do no wrong. what happened when he kissed that mysterious glass relic containing the blood of a saint.
8:02 am
can we call it maybe a half miracle? >> that's what he's calling it. we're going to start with the new isis-related threat. overnight, american military commanders issuing a warning after a group claiming to represent isis posted an online hit list calling for attacks on u.s. personnel here at home. >> pretty disturbing. they revealed their photos, names, and addresses, this, as the u.s. decides to pull troops out of yemen after isis claimed responsibility for a suicide attack there. and the security situation rapidly deteriorating. let's go to washington where martha raddatz is covering both of these stories. hi, martha. >> reporter: good morning. only about 100 u.s. special forces remained in yemen. but the situation is so bad, even they had to be pulled out. this, as an alarming threat, like no other before, from isis aimed at 100 u.s. military personnel here at home and abroad. this morning, u.s. military leadership warning service members to use caution when posting on social media.

8:04 am
claims, the safety of our servicemembers is always a concern. and looking at the lists is chilling and has to worry military families. the pictures are clear. the information is clear. and so are the addresses, dan. >> disturbing to say the least. let's get back to the situation in yemen. why, exactly, is the u.s. pulling out? what does this seeming dissent into chaos mean for america's national security? >> reporter: it was just far too dangerous. it's a lawless, leaderless place, turning into a failed state. rebts backed by iran are taking over the place. u.s. diplomats pulled out last month. now the special forces. al qaeda in yemen is considered the most dangerous threat to the u.s. it's where the so called underwear bomber was trained. the late american-born radical cleric anwar al awlaki lived there. and the question this morning, dan, with no u.s. personnel there, how do we continue to track terrorists? >> that's the worry. chaos can be great for al qaeda and isis. a breeding ground perhaps. so we'll have to keep an eye on

8:07 am
juried in the chaos, the only callty that night, white himself, pronounced dead saturday evening from injuries sustained when sheriff's deputies opened fire, stopping the blade of the machete just inches from this tsa agent. >> i really thought he hit me with the machete, he was that close. >> reporter: she ran and screamed for people to clear the area. one bullet pierced a tsa agent. >> it went through here and here. i was fortunate. it went through and didn't hit any tendons. i'm fine. >> reporter: and law enforcement officials are saying that white had mental health issues. while they say everything worked out for the best, they continue to review the procedures here in new orleans. dan? >> kendis thank you, and great to hear from carol roushel. she's very tough. now to high anxiety at a popular ski resort in maine. the chair left went lurching back wards, stranding people in the air. panicked riders jumping off. rescuers leaping into action. abc's linzie janis is on the

8:09 am
bottom of why it did. >> reporter: the resort is calling the mall -- malfunction a roll-back. when chairs roll backwards after the braking system failed. one destruction test performed at a colorado ski resort showing after a brake failure, rollback speeds could reach 1500 feet per minute, almost 20 miles an hour. the expert -- experiment that at that speed, the lift could send passengers flying over 120 feet into the air. the reason some decided to jump to safety saturday. >> get off! >> reporter: sugarloaf says the chair lift was inspected that morning and was functioning normally. it also gets inspected annually by safety experts. this is not the first time there's been a malfunction at the resort. 2010, the chair left derailed. >> i used to ski there as a kid. a very popular place in new england. thank you, linzie.
