7:01 am
caught on camera fleeting to the ground landing 0 on a busy road hitting a truck. how the quick-thinking pilot saved lives. good morning, america. a lot to get to this morning. got that big new poll out this morning, senator marco rubio rising in the race for president. there he is right there. walking over from starbucks. a little different from yesterday in the stretch limo and donald trump and he's here live in the studio. we'll get to him. >> we will. first we begin with the breaking news overnight. an american airlines flight forced to make an emergency landing. a passenger making threats on board that flight. abc's pierre thomas has the latest and is here in the studio with us. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the american airline flight left phoenix late tuesday afternoon with the expectation it would arrive at new york's jfk about 4 1/2 hours later but that dramatically changed when chaos erupted midflight. >> listen tower, could use
7:02 am
emergency 622. a scare in the air for 121 passengers on flight 622. >> about ready to clear to land 1-9 right american 622. >> reporter: en route to jfk's airport. >> a flight attendant mentioned to a passenger, saying there is a security concern and they were going to take someone off the plane. >> reporter: the unruly passenger forced the pilot to divert the plane to wichita, kansas. >> we were in the air for about an hour and a half and then kind of everything went down. >> reporter: local law enforcement meeting the plane upon arriving at the gate. among those on board the rock band augustines. one band member tweeting out, whoa, emergency landing in wichita. passenger threatening the plane that he wants to kill people. bad scene. the passenger who made the alleged threat was taken off the flight without incident. the flight resumed and landed in new york just before midnight. we've had 56 of these incidents this year interfering with a flight crew is a federal crime and those who do it face fines
7:03 am
and possibly jail time. this is no joke and i'm sure those passengers on board were terrified and not too happy, robin. >> doesn't se seem like it's be the rise. >> serious situation. >> george. >> thanks, the race for the white house and this morning, first new poll since last week, republican debate, ben carson, donald trump, neck and neck at the top. senator marco rubio surging to challenge the outsiders. he is here live as donald trump faces some new troubles. let's go first to jon karl on the trail in manchester. good morning, jon. >> reporter: this new poll is the first conducted entirely after that. criticized debate on cnbc and take a look, it shows donald trump and ben carson still the front-runners, but the biggest movement in this poll, george, comes with ted cruz and marco rubio moving into a tie for third place. their highest levels for both men since donald trump got into the race and look at jeb bush. he has fallen to 4% in this
7:04 am
poll. his lowest ever. the biggest factor is clearly that debate. when asked who won, voters overwhelmingly said marco rubio followed by ted cruz. we also have a controversy brewing this morning over a bizarre late night retweet from donald trump. 11:20 p.m. he retweeted something with a bizarre image of the bush family next to a swastika. we reached out to the trump campaign about this, they said that trump himself did tweet that, but, quote, he did not see the image attached and he does not condone it. they also told us there would be a fuller statement from the trump campaign coming later this morning. george. >> we will look for that. jon, thanks very much. senator marco rubio joins us now. we saw that poll. you are rising. led to a "washington post" headline this morning, it shows -- it says rubio rising, also becoming a target. and it quotes a gop strategist saying that the next 100 days are going to be brutal for you. are you ready for it. >> the last 100 days haven't been easy. i don't know what he's comparing
7:05 am
it to. i'm running for president, the most important political office on the planet. we knew it would be difficult but we're going to continue on our message and certainly answer questions and address falsehoods or anything people say but i'm going to remain focused on the future of america which is what this election needs to be about. this nation is at a point where it needs to choose what kind of country it's going to be in the 21st rent i. >> every candidate hitting you right here on personal finances. >> i mean, he is a disaster with his credit cards. you know, he certainly lives above his mean, there's no question about that. >> well, i'm sorry. you know -- >> get a kick out of donald trump. but he was raising an important issue. you know, this came up at the debate last week. you had to draw down on your retirement account to pay living expenses. >> that's not accurate. bottom line is i obviously don't come from a wealthy family. i had student loans. i only have one debt, the mortgage on the home i live in in miami. i wanted to make sure we had
7:06 am
cash on hands for all kinds of things that come up. >> living expense. >> well, obviously it's not day-to-day living expenses. it's things like, for example, if your refrigerator break, we live in south florida, if our air-conditioning unit goes gown, we have a ten-year-old house and i get a phone call, that's a crisis in south florida. we wanted to make sure we had access to that. i send my kids to private christian schools. that's a significant amount of money. i see it as an investment in their future so that's what that was but ultimately i have two debts, of the mortgage on my home and america, i owe so much to this country. >> jeb bush in his campaign putting out the idea that you're a risky bet and raising questions that came up in your past campaigns about using the republican party credit card for personal use. "the tampa bay types" has a question about it. two years of those records are still secret. what should voters -- >> it's not accurate. well, first of all, every expend on that card is detailed in the republican party accounts that they file every month with --
7:07 am
reports they have to file with the state. it doesn't say who they belong to but every expense is on there and we'll release those soon. >> those two years. >> people need to understand what they're talking about. it wasn't a credit card. it was an american express charge card secured under my personal -- bills would be mailed to me at home. if there was a personal expense, i paid it. a party expense, the party paid it. i recognize in hindsight i would do it different to avoid confusion but the republican party never paid a single personal expense of mine. this is unfortunately when this was initially reported in the press it was made into something bigger than it actual is. i wouldn't do it the same way again to avoid the stories but the republican party never paid any of my -- >> when bush's team says you're a risky bet because of this, they're wrong. >> they're running a campaign that has somehow concluded, someone told them you got to attack marco authorized to win. i don't agree. it won't change my complain. i'll continue to run a positive message. if there are policy differences
7:08 am
we should discuss them, not just with jeb but anybody on the field but i'm not going to attack other republicans. we're doing hillary clinton's work for her. >> she talled you out yesterday as well in regard to immigration reform. you used to be for comprehensive immigration reform and caved. >> yeah, because it can't pass -- we won't pass it in this country. we're not going to pass it after a migratory crisis on the southern border where miners were being sent here after two executive orders. i'm being honest. they're the ones that are not being truthful. the only way forward is through a series of steps that glings with border security. it's funny, the democrats attack republicans for not doing what they didn't do when they had a majority in the house, a supermajority in the senate, barack obama in the white house, they did nothing on immigration. and now they attack republicans for not doing what they themselves didn't do when they had the power because this issue cannot be tackled in one massive piece of legislation. >> finally to get on the stage with her you might have to get past senator ted cruz rising after the last debate. both of you young, 44.
7:09 am
both of cuban descent, both first term senators and both support of the tea party. what sets you apart from him. >> we'll have a debate and i like him. he is a friend of mine. it's interesting that the four top candidates in that field, two of them, three of them of the four come from minority backgrounds which speaks a lot to the diversity -- >> two with no government experience. >> again, that speaks to the mood in the country. people are angry and should be at washington, d.c. you know, i've only been there 4 1/2 years but i have shared in that frustration and one of the reasons i chose to run for president. >> thanks for coming in. you can learn more about the candidates. go to on yahoo! robin. >> we appreciate the candidates joining us live here. the major break in the shooting death of an illinois police lieutenant. his death in september, you may remember, led to a massive manhunt for three alleged suspects. well, this morning, officials are expected to reveal what happened to him. abc's alex perez is in fox lake, illinois. good morning, alex.
7:10 am
>> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. a lot of people here remember that massive manhunt terrorizing residences and now many are hoping they will finally get some answers as to what exactly happened to lieutenant charles joseph gliniewicz. it was back in september when he radioed in he was pursuing three men when authorities showed up, when backup showed up they determined the lieutenant was shot dead. now, a massive manhunt followed as we mentioned as hundreds of officers desperately searched for the three alleged suspects but no one was ever found. authorities later revealed the lieutenant had been shot at close range with his own weapon. now, according to our affiliate wls and the "chicago tribune" and "chicago sun-times" authorities will later discuss the possibility that the lieutenant made this whole story up and took his own life, something they have been working on for some time now. robin. >> a possible suicide. what is his family saying about all this, alex? >> reporter: well, as you might
7:11 am
imagine this has bryan tough for everyone. the family said they believe that the lieutenant would never take his own life, many here hoping they will finally get some answers as to what this investigation has revealed at this press conference here later today. robin. >> anxious for those answers, alex, thank you. >> such a strange story. we move on, online reviews have become a big part of shopping but some block you from posting critical comments, a subject of a major hearing in washington. abc's new congressional correspondent mary bruce reporting from the capitol. good morning, mary. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning. well, from hotels to restaurants and even physicians, consumers are used to voicing their opinions online. but those critical reviews could be putting you at a critical risk. with some companies fining consumers thousands for speaking out. now, hoping to end this lawmakers are attempting to prohibit what's known as a gag clause. it's a small clause but with big implications which can essentially ban consumers from
7:12 am
bad-mouthing. lawmakers here will hear today from critics would say in this practice unfairly muzzles consumers as they consider a law which could put an end to this practice and protect your right to post negative reviews. >> mary on the beat. now to the growing e. coli outbreak at chipotle. more cases have been reported in the northwest. dozens of restaurants temporarily closed and now the company is taking aggressive action to get to the bottom of that out of break. abc's neal karlinsky is in be bellview with that story. good morning, neal. >> reporter: good morning. this is 1 of the 43 chipotle locations shut down across washington and oregon because of that e. coli outbreak. still this morning the exact cause of it remains a mystery. this morning, chipotle is on the defensive scrubbing 43 shuttered restaurants clean. even though the chain has not definitively been linked to the outbreak, the mexican food change is conduct is its own
7:13 am
environmental tests and batch testing ingredients, in addition to tests conducted by health officials. >> i know we're never going to eat there again after this. this was just a horrible experience. >> reporter: the aggressive move to protect its customers and reputation comes as health department officials announced growing numbers tuesday. 37 sickened in washington and oregon. up from 22 and the chipotle locations they ate at now up to 8 instead of 6. another 25 possible cases are awaiting test results. >> any outbreak over 40 people is significant. it's something to worry about. >> reporter: an 8-year-old hospitalized north of seattle is a vegetarian seen as a clue that a vegetable may be to blame instead of beef. experts saying it's also unlikely multiple restaurants would have undercooked meat at the same time. meanwhile, a new lawsuit was just filed. an e. coli victim claiming a burrito bowl she ate at a chipotle in washington state allegedly made her so seek she
7:14 am
needed medical attention a week later. more lawsuits are expected to be filed this week. chipotle saying in a new statement this morning it is our greatest priority to ensure the safety of all the food we serve and maintain our customers' confidence in eating at chipotle. in the meantime, the number of victims is expected to grow, george. >> okay, neal, thanks very much. we move on to that major winter storm in the west dumping nearly two feet of snow in some areas sparking flash floods. now moving east and threatening more floods in texas. ginger, you have that. >> the pictures out of san diego. the water up to the wheel well. the flash flooding 1 to 2 inches. utah and this truck flipped by winds gusting greater than 80. in nevada, 22 plus inches of snow, very heavy taking down some of those tree limbs, that storm still moving through. we still have winter storm warnings or advisories for eight states. it'll move through new mexico, parts of colorado today and eventually bring potential for flash flooding and severe storms in that saturated area in texas plus ahead of it all record
7:15 am
november warmth from the great lakes to the northeast. i'll have more on that coming up. >> it did feel good here yesterday. amy with the other top stories starting with a new message from isis. in a new audio recording isis claiming responsibility for bringing down that russian passenger plane over egypt but won't say how it allegedly did that as the black boxes are being analyzed the search area for debris has been widened to 24 miles. media leaks are fueling more speculation about the investigation. one russia media outlet claims investigators have found no residue of explosive materials on the bodies implying a technical failure is to blame but experts say it's just too early to tell. meanwhile, there has been another crash of a russian plane overnight as many as 41 people were killed when a cargo plane crashed in south sudan. no word yet on the cause. well, results from elections across the country are streaming in this morning. for only the second time in 40 years, voters in kentucky have elected a republican governor. tea party favorite matt bevin

7:17 am
in the middle of a busy road. that story for you in just 30 seconds. >> we are back at 7:17 with that small plane that fell from the sky in arkansas. a parachute attached to the plane saved all three on board. abc's david kerley has that story for us. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we're used to seeing planes flying but floating to earth on a parachute? it happened yesterday. it was a bit unreal. >> plane down. pan down. >> reporter: a parachute carrying a plane with three on board to the ground.
7:18 am
>> plane has possibly gone down. you have one that parachuted. >> reporter: landing on a fayetteville, arkansas, road hitting a truck which was carrying a mother and two young children. such a sight cameras capturing the final descent to the ground. the pilot, bill simon, the former top executive for u.s. operations of walmart, was heading to texas where he teaches at baylor university. but shortly after takeoff, the engine has trouble. simon tries to set up a landing at a nearby airport but the engine goes. losing altitude, he pulls the chute, knowing he may lose his plane but save lives. only minor injuries for the three men on the plane and the woman in the truck. >> we're very fortunate that no one was hurt any worse than they were and that the plane didn't impact into a building or something like that. >> reporter: now this is a very specific aircraft. it's called a cirrus with a built-in parachute and the company and owners say it's been
7:19 am
deployed more than 50 times and there are 109 survivors, so it actually does work, robin and george and what a sight it was yesterday in arkansas. >> really was to see that. can't the big planes get those too some kind of way. they seem to work. so much more ahead. that uber passenger caught on camera beating a driver fired and facing more trouble. this morning the driver speaking out. what mapped moments before the attack.

more on these spy apps. as you said this is creepy stuff. >> it is so creepy, george. i wouldn't even believe it if i didn't see it with my own eyes. we got an up close look at these apps which senator al franken calls unconscionable stalking apps. he says they let people track others in complete secrecy and found firsthand exactly what he means. in this scene from the popular show about hacking mr. robot, you see a character secretly install tracking software on someone else's phone and we found if you allow someone to access your phone, it could happen to you. >> i don't know if when i'm sending an e-mail he is reading it. >> reporter: this woman tracked her, she says, by installing a spy app on her phone. >> or if i make a phone call if he can hear what i say. >> reporter: brian hill a former police detective and digital forensics expert is about to show us how quickly and easily it can happen.
7:42 am
we focus on two apps, mspy and flexispy neither available at the apple store or on google play, only through the company's websites. their cost as little as $8 a month. both apps are marketed primarily as a way for people to monitor their children or employees. while there may be legitimate reasons and ways to do that, critics say these apps go. further. brian shows how just a thin excuse could get a phone out of a target's hands. >> so i don't get any service on my phone here. do you mind, i need to look up a few things. >> reporter: it takes him a little over two minutes to install mspy on our android phone. then i take a walk, the phone with me. during that time hill seeing my every move. >> so back from my walk and what did you get? >> i got just about everything that you can imagine. it pinged your location six times. >> these are my colleagues. >> five full pages of contacts. call logs. >> there's my text message.
7:43 am
>> yep. >> you went to bank of america, checking accounts. >> reporter: now to the next app, flexispy able to secretly listen to phone calls on many phones. it takes him just over an hour to bypass the security settings and install it on my phone. then by logging into flexi spy's website brian takes control of my phone during a work meeting. even snapping photos of me while i'm holding 9 phone in my hand. then he's able to listen to a phone conversation i just had with my assistant? so your next flight's be on the 8th and you're going to l.a.x. >> reporter: now he knows what day i'm traveling and where i'm going. because laws may be violated by using these apps, the companies warn you should only use them on phones you own such as your child's or an employee's work phone and only after notifying the person. still, the website strongly suggests they're about spying. flexi spy says a common use is to track a cheating girlfriend and warns users to stay silent
7:44 am
and mute your own mike while using the app. mspy told us if it has evidence the application is being used in a wrong way, we make every effort to check the case and prevent usage. flexispy did not return our repeated requests for comment. and here's what is even more creepy. experts tell us you wouldn't be able to tell if you have these kinds of spy apps on your phone. it requires very specialized training to take them off to protect yourself and our experts advise if you keep your phone with you at all times, that is the very best thing you can do, set your phone to lock immediately after every single use and never tell anyone your password. i mean we were talking about this earlier. peop peoplelay their phones -- >> my entire family knows my password. it's amazing this is legal. >> right. >> don't do it. don't do it. it's not right. it's not the right thing to do. you can't do it without someone else's permission and it is really scary. it makes you think twice. >> yeah, important story. thank you, rebecca.
