8:01 am
would her family stand by her. and spooktacular morning. we revisit "the legend of sleepy hollow." the headless horseman leads the way, the fearless "gma" team. well, some of us. braving a frightful night of surprises, the ghoulish fun as we say -- >> good morning, america. happy halloween. it's saturday, october 31st. it's "good morning america." hey, good morning and happy halloween. we'll blow it out. we have kids, dogs, we've got rob standing by in sleepy hollow, we're all in. look at the kids and it's all coming up just a little bit later in the show this morning. >> and we also have you. >> oh, yes. for better and for worse. >> which is always good for halloween. we have to start with tragic and breaking news. a plane with more than 200 on board went down overnight. >> it was en route from the popular red sea resort of sharm el sheikh, egypt, to st.
8:02 am
petersburg, russia, when it crashed in the sinai peninsula. >> now, it is an airbus a-321, had more than 200 people on board and it disappeared 23 minutes after takeoff early saturday. abc's alex marquardt is in the region and has the very latest for us. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. that's right. just a short time ago, egypt's aviation authority telling us this plane disappeared 23 minutes after taking off from sharm el sheikh. the debris has been located in the northern sinai peninsula, a very remote region, rescue teams are now on the scene. there were 217 passengers on this plane, plus 7 crew, all of them russian all now feared to be dead. egyptian authorities saying it was a technical failure and not terrorism that brought down this plane. paula, dan. >> all right, alex, thank you. and for more on what may have brought that plane down let's bring in abc's david kerley. david, good morning. we know that you cover aviation. we know this plane disappeared
8:03 am
as alex said just 23 minutes after takeoff and we're hearing reports of a distress call from the pilot. what are you hearing? >> yeah, this is one report from what would be an official with what is our ntsb on the egyptian side saying that basically the pilot radioed in that he had a problem and was trying to land at another airport. if that is true, that suggests a lot of things, that something may have gone wrong at altitude, that the pilot got down and something else went wrong or some mistake was made and the aircraft went down. it's really early in this to figure out exactly what happened to this airbus a-321, which is a very good aircraft, paula. >> you mentioned the altitude. it was flying at 31,000 feet when air traffic control lost contact. any idea what the wreckage will tell us, david? >> reporter: absolutely. if the wreckage is spread out, that tells you that the plane broke up at altitude. if it is more compact it means maybe the pilot was trying to land the aircraft and we've had one report it broke into two pieces. if that's the case it'll tell us
8:04 am
quite a bit, and don't forget this is a conflict zone, not quite the same as mh17. we don't believe that the rebels that the egyptians are fighting have the kind of equipment that was used in ukraine so even though egyptian officials are saying terrorism has been ruled out it may be too early to tell. you don't know if there was a bomb involved or not. there are so many factors still to be figured out. it's very early after this plane went down, paula. >> so many factors and the story continues to evolve. david, thank you. dan. >> we're going 0 move now to the other story breaking overnight. the lethal weather in texas. two people dead, two missing after flash flooding and reported tornadoes hit the central part of the state. a foot and a half of rain in just 24 hours. the water is rising so fast, people got trapped in their cars. abc's aditi roy is in seguin, texas, in front of a home that got hit by one of those reported tornadoes. aditi, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the destruction is absolutely staggering. take a look. this reported tornado allegedly lifted part of this home off its foundation, moved it in the air
8:05 am
25 feet and then dropped it onto that car which as you can see is still on its side and even more chilling, the incredible survival story of the family living inside. record rains, dangerous flooding and reported tornadoes wreaking havoc across texas. the alvarez family hit hard. violent winds destroying their home while aubrey and two of her children were still inside. >> and just as i reached down and grabbed her little arms, the window just exploded. >> reporter: mom getting her daughter out of the way just as the storm took a turn for the worse and nearby, a local high school ripped apart by high winds. officials confirming two deaths and reports of more missing. . of the widespread damage from this halloween weekend storm caused by flooding raging waters rushing through the streets sweeping away personal belongings, even cars. through the night, rescue crews across the state pulling drivers
8:06 am
from the rapids and this elementary school surrounded by water. >> we're dropping a rescuer right now. >> so you can see i'm floating down some sort of creek. >> reporter: kerry packer barely making it out alive. his car filling with water recording this message for family. >> love you guys. >> reporter: thankfully that man is doing okay and so is the family who was living in this home. they're staying with loved ones until they can figure out their next steps. paula. >> harrowing situations for all those families involved, aditi, thank you. these storms are on the move which means for texans unfortunately they are not out of the woods. rob is tracking it all from his remote location in sleepy hollow, new york, for us this morning. hi, rob. >> hi, paula. another weekend, another weekend of severe weather and flooding across texas. we want to show you some video and some pictures that we're just getting in now from houston where the rain is coming down so hard the streets are flooding. there are rescues that are ongoing. you see that car with the water almost up to the roof there.
8:07 am
and we have numerous tornado warnings out, especially south of the city where there's some damage being reported. so the eastern half of texas again getting slammed. a flash flood watch up and a tardieu watch up for the next several hours as well, and heavy rains will pour into louisiana, as well as this cold front finally pushes to the east slowly and brings a lot of gulf moisture with it so that's where you see the heaviest amount of rain. and they will be potent across southeast louisiana and could get severe there later on this afternoon and tonight through the overnight in nola. how much rain do we expect once it gets out of texas? could see 4, 5, maybe 6 inches across new orleans so that's an area we watch for flooding and heavy rain stretches from all there to all the way up in through parts of atlanta, as well. we'll talk more about this throughout the program and live from sleepy hollow, new york, pretty exciting place to celebrate halloween. >> exciting place and i can't wait for everyone to figure out why you're in sleepy hollow for us this morning, rob. thank you. moving now to the white
8:08 am
house, a surprise announcement that troops will be sent to syria and train and advise troops, but will that lead to combat like it did for u.s. troops in iraq last week. jim avila at the white house for us to answer it. hi, jim. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it's not what the white house had planned and it's not what the president wanted so this morning, the obama administration is promising a short and limited role for american troops in syria. this morning there are no american troops in syria, but within several weeks the first u.s. special forces will start flowing behind the front lines in what the white house says is a training mission and not a combat mission. >> they're being deployed to syria with training, advising and assist mission, and that's not an effort to downplay the serious risk they're facing. >> reporter: national security forces tell me the troops, less than 50, will, however, accompany opposition forces on dangerous missions such as hostage rescue and while they will not routinely be on the front lines, they will defend themselves. why are they going now?
8:09 am
sources tell abc news, american special forces will be used to enable local militias to take and ultimately hold the isis stronghold of raqqah. the border between syria and turkey and degrade the isis supply lines in syria and iraq. >> the president does expect that they can have an impact in intensifying our strategy. >> reporter: political reaction has been swift and in some cases critical. some saying the president is breaking a promise not to enter a war. others saying he's just not doing enough. dan. >> tricky line to walk for sure. jim avila, at the white house this morning, thank you. to domestic politics now and a big and potential liang bring meeting tomorrow night. the republican campaigns unhappy about the debates. millions of americans have been tuning in but the candidates are displeased with the tone and the tenor, so let's bring in abc's jon karl. so, tell us about this. first of all, good morning. >> good morning, dan. happy halloween. >> thank you. tell us about this meeting tomorrow night, and is it true that dr. ben carson's team is
8:10 am
leading the charge? >> he is. this is a meeting of representatives of all the campaigns coming together. they are angry about that last debate. they all have complaints and all have changes that they want to make in future debates, dan. obviously they didn't like the questions. these campaigns want to have more control over the moderators and how these debates go down. but i got to tell you, we are verging on "lord of the flies" time here because while they all agree they don't like what happened last debate, they do not agree on what they want to see happen. >> as long as it doesn't become "lord of the rings." but let me ask you, is it possible this thing will fall apart, that we would have no more debates or that we'd have some candidates where some candidates show up and others don't? >> the rnc carefully constructed them to limit the numbers and have control over who is doing them, the moderators and said you can't go to unsanctioned debates. they're so upset you could see a situation where they go off on their own. they don't agree. donald trump wants shorter debates. that's all he wants. ben carson wants to have fewer debates and the other candidates want to have more debates so you
8:11 am
could have, you know, like the whole structure that's been crafted here fall apart. >> combo of "lord of the flies" and "lord of the rings." let me ask you about one of the candidates that really a lot of people are viewing as a breakout star from the wednesday night debate. marco rubio. he scored a major endorsement overnight. tell us about that. >> this is a big deal. paul singer gave more money to republican candidates last year than any other person. he was somebody that was sought by jeb bush, sought by chris christie, and he has now come out and he is not only endorsing marco rubio, he is saying he will raise money for marco rubio and he is the kind of guy -- a billionaire but the kind of guy that also goes out and gets other billionaires and millionaires to give -- to give money to candidates so this is a very big deal for marco rubio and another real troubling sign for jeb bush that his money may dry out. >> jon karl, great to have you here on a saturday morning. >> great to be here. >> happy halloween yet again. and we do want to remind everybody coming up next week right here on "gma," donald trump live in our times square studio this tuesday to talk about his campaign and
8:12 am
he's got a new book out called "crippled america." paula, to you. >> so the donald will be in studio. that's big, it's huge. [ laughter ] but we do have more trouble this morning for the online fantasy sports business. one of the major sites fanduel is being sued on behalf of nfl players. the class action lawsuit alleges that fanduel uses the players' names and their images, their likenesses without their permission. abc's tony reali is here with more on this. good morning, tony. >> good morning, paula. >> you've seen the commercials and heard it come up at last week's republican debate. daily fantasy sports is a huge multibillion dollar business and with that. at stake comes more questions about the legality of it all. overnight popular fantasy sports site fanduel hit hard with a lawsuit. >> do you want to duel me? >> reporter: washington wide receiver pierre garcon suing the company saying the site improperly exploits the popularity and accomplishments of nfl players.
8:13 am
>> they're using the name to drive millions of players to their website. >> reporter: fangduel, one of the leads sites, along with draftkings and a billion dollar sports industry with over 7 million entries each week offering daily cash prizes to players with high-scoring teams but according to the lawsuit fanduel uses names and likenesses of players without authority or valid license, unlike competing site draftkings which has a deal with the nfl players association. >> fanduel didn't get a license from anyone. >> reporter: but a spokesperson for the company says the suit is without merit and fanduel looks forward to continuing to operate our contests. this lawsuit, the latest in a string of legal woes for the top two sites. earlier this month the fbi and justice department launching an inquiry into the practices of both fantasy sports websites. there's no doubt millions have come to love daily fantasy sports sites especially when they win. fandulaney claims to have paid out nearly half a billion dollars last year but a spotlight seems to be shining brighter now. >> it's possible with the increased scrutiny fans might
8:14 am
not be able to enjoy this any longer. >> we're talking about the fbi and the nfl and where the money is going. billions of dollars. >> sports. we're supposed to enjoy this but now got to investigate. >> people enjoy it when they win. >> they do enjoy money, thank you. to ron with a look at the other stories breaking this morning. good morning, sir. >> good morning to you, dan and paula. we're going to begin with that -- a nightclub fire in bucharest, the capital of romania. it happened after a rock band's pyrotechnic show sparked an explosion creating a huge fire there. more than two dozen people were killed. at least 180 others injured and officials fear that death toll, it could rise, witnesses saying that some victims were engulfed in flames as they rushed to escape through a single exit door. that is in bucharest, romania. and back here at home, 28 schoolchildren in virginia are recovering this morning from injuries after their school bus flipped onto its roof on friday. police say the bus was

passengers on board. you see it there. the divers managed to get part of the line off the whale but they were having a hard time keeping it in place to finish the job of freeing that whale. what a homecoming for new york mets, game three of the world series friday night, the mets trouncing the kansas city royals who lead 2-1. game four tonight in queens, new york. a showstopping costume at the annual white house halloween party. the president kicking off the holiday getting down on the floor inside the oval office to play with little ella rhodes, the daughter of deputy national secured adviser ben rhodes. but the real party was outside, outside the white house as the first couple not in costume or dressed up as the president and first lady perhaps giving out white house halloween cookies and candy to hundreds of washington, d.c. schoolkids. >> check that guy out. he's dressed as the pope in a little white popemobile and he
