7:02 am
here's an incredible image coming out of tennessee overnight. they battle those blazes in burning all across tennessee right now. we begin with breaking news, plane crash in colombia. 81 people on board including a soccer team. at least five made it out alive. now emergency responders are on the scene and abc's david kerley has all the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. it is amazing. we are talking about survivors this morning considering how this small jetliner went down and where it went down. emergency crews carrying the handful of survivors of the jet crash into local hospitals. remarkable considering this, the wreckage in the mountainous area around medellin. with just six survivors, rescue crews expect to start the recovery of the other 75 people who were on board. many of them members of that brazilian soccer team on its way to a tournament. the british aerospace rj-85 was nearing the end of a long flight from southern brazil and low livia to colombia. it circled near medellin and the

crusade they had an electrical problem before it went down. video was taken of the soccer team, the chapecoense, before they boarded and on board one of the players, alan ruschel posted pictures with his teammate. ruschel reportedly one of the survivors. the team posting a statement, may god accompany our athletes, officials, journalists and other guests traveling with our dell situation. see, at least one of the players reportedly in the hospital and it was really a cinderella story for this team. it's regional team. they were going to finals and beat some very powerful teams to get to this, the investigation starting at daylight, george. it's a tragedy for this team from brazil. >> it certainly is. remarkable, david, that anyone could survive a crash like this. >> reporter: yeah, you know, it's remarkable. we don't know much but depending on how this plane went down, how it hit, where you were sitting, that's how some people can survive and others perish. you know, part of the aircraft could break off and actually
7:04 am
land softly and the other part could be destroyed. so it's really -- it's truly to know what happened but there are a lot of factors that could play into why these folks survived. >> david kerley, thanks very much. no you to that breaking news, right here at home, dozens of wildfires threatening the southeast forcing thousands to evacuate overnight from popular tourist spots like dolly parton's dollywood as winds there up to 60 miles an hour spread flames and destroy so many homes. abc's rob marciano has all the latest. good morning, rob. >> for weeks we've been reporting on the extreme drought, the fires and the rain that was finally to come last night but before that happened the winds cranked and the fire spread. >> huge fire. blown out of control right now. >> reporter: overnight wildfires raging across eastern tennessee. burning at least 100 homes. >> yeah, it's time to go. >> reporter: forcing evacuations and threatening one of the area's biggest tourist attractions, dollywood. >> if you are a person that prays we could use your prayers. >> reporter: the popular tourist
7:05 am
destination turned into an orange armageddon. smoke and ash filling the streets downtown. owners trying to protect hotels and lodges already lit up with holiday lights. more than 10,000 animals are trapped at ripley's aquarium of the smokies. the fires fanned by strong winds up to 60 miles per hour and the southeast's worst drought in a decade. >> conditions are extremely dangerous. stay off the roadways. >> reporter: motorists fleeing downtown gatlinburg as authorities order a mandatory evacuation there in oh, my god. it's so hot. >> reporter: the fires spreading quickly. ground crews struggling to put out the flames. aerial firefighters not allowed to fly due to the dangerous conditions. so far only minor injuries on evacuation. we hope that holds true throughout the day. large fires that continue to burn. rain helping things just a little bit. we'll get another round of rain as we go through time. still burning this morning. as the streets are wet, that's
7:06 am
kind of surreal. geers gatlinburg about to get out of the heavy rain as it moves towards the north and east, 3 to 4, maybe more inches of rainfall coming later today. that will put out some of these fires but there's also a severe threat with this. we'll talk more about that in about ten minute. >> thanks very much. we move on to that rampage at ohio state university where a so mol lay-american student was shot down by a quick acting police officer. abc's alex perez has the latest of the. >> reporter: good morning, george. authorities are crediting that quick thinking university police officer with saving lives and investigators are now hunting for any evidence that could help explain why the suspect did this. overnight investigators searching the home of an 18-year-old ohio state university student who police say carried out the violent attack that injured 11 people at ohio state university. according to the school newspaper this is the suspect's photo. identified as 18-year-old abdul
7:07 am
razak ali artan. the rampage starting early monday morning unleashing chaos and fear. the university texting students to run, hide and fight. it was just before 10:00 a.m. when authorities say a male suspect in a car deliberately jumps a curb and plows into pedestrians. >> this is osu. we have a streak that struck several pedestrians. >> reporter: the driver then exits the car with a butcher knife in hand and starts slashing people near the engineering building watts hall. >> we got a man with a knife running around cutting people. >> reporter: meanwhile, students learning about the news on social media took action. some locking themselves in classrooms, piling chairs to barricade the door. >> once we barricaded the door everyone sat in the corner trying to stay away from the windows. >> it was terrifying at first. you don't think it's going to happen to you and you know you get really scared when it does. >> reporter: one minute after the stabbings began campus police officer alan horujko
7:08 am
arrives. officials say when artan refused commands the officer shot and killed him. >> yeah, i need medics at the macquigg lab as soon as possible. >> reporter: they raced in to treat the wounded and jacob bowers who was across the street watched in shock as the attack unfolded. >> it looked like he was trying to hurt as many as he could. >> reporter: in all 11 people were injured. the good news here this morning is that authorities say none of those injuries are life-threatening. amy. >> that is certainly good news, alex, thank you very much. investigators are now looking into the suspect's background and his posts online as they look now for a motive. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with more on that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, amy. authorities this morning say all signs point to ab attack inspired by terror propaganda carried out by a young man who until monday seemed to be living the american dream. >> abdul razak ali artan, cum
7:09 am
laude. >> reporter: it was five months ago that abdul razak ali artan graduated with honors before going on to ohio state. >> so many people who are flipped by isis propaganda remotely look like they're leading successful lives. >> reporter: but just minutes before the attack, law enforcement officials tell abc news artan posted this message on facebook. i can't take it anymore. america, stop interfering with other countries especially the muslim ummah. if you want us muslims to stop carrying out lone wolf attacks, then make peace. >> it certainly looks like this individual had some sympathy for terrorist groups overseas. >> reporter: artan had only started at ohio state this fall. he was recently profiled in the campus newspaper "the lantern" blaming the media for making muslims feel scared. >> his main concern was is it acceptable for me to pray on the oval before class? >> reporter: artan and his family lived near the campus where neighbors said there was
7:10 am
nothing suspicious about him. >> very astonishing. you don't know what people are up to now. >> reporter: as police surrounded the apartment, family members left in tears. isis has been urging its followers to carry out attacks using a vehicle and over the holiday weekend they put out a new video showing how an attack with a knife can instill terror, even as isis loses territory in iraq and syria its propaganda continues to instill terror around the world. >> all right, brian, thank you. >> we move on to that breaking political news overnight, president-elect trump nominates a prominent opponent, tom price to be his health secretary. as trump unleashes new twitter attacks on reporters calling out his baseless claims on voter fraud and tom llamas is covering it from trump tower. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, just moments ago, congressman price accepting that nomination and this just could be the start. vice president-elect pence saying last night as he left trump tower very important announcements would happen today. this as you mentioned
7:11 am
president-elect trump back on twitter attacking journalists pointing out he's making baseless allegations of voter fraud. overnight, president-elect donald trump unleashing a twitter tirade retweeting attacks on a journalist after trump claimed voter fraud but provided no proof of voter misconduct. retweets like this one, what proof do you have donald trump did not suffer from millions of fraud votes? trump is furious about green party candidate jill stein's recount in three battleground states calling the effort sad. >> what we have are predictors that if tampering took place, that it would be most likely to be discovered in the three states where we are looking. >> reporter: but many are wondering why the president-elect tweeted this baseless claim. millions of people who voted illegally to explain why he lost the popular vote. on monday his team pointing to this 2012 pew study which said more than 1.8 million deceased
7:12 am
individuals are listed as voters. but the primary author of the study quickly clarifying. i can confirm that report made no findings re: voter fraud. we found millions of out of date registration records due to people moving or dying but found no evidence that voter fraud resulted. >> i think it's most unfortunate that the president-elect is claiming that there's huge problems with our system and that's feeding what i call this conspiracy theory. >> reporter: back in trump tower, the president-elect busy shaping his cabinet. overnight transition sources confirming he's expected to name congressman tom price, a georgia republican, who started his career as a surgeon and has been a staunch critic of obamacare as the next secretary of health and human services. trump also considering retired general david petraeus for secretary of state. >> the meeting went very well. >> the one time director of the cia forced to resign after he leaked classified information to his mistress.
7:13 am
trump tweeting about the petraeus meeting say he, quote, was very impressed. now, a top aide to president-elect trump tells me general petraeus is also being considered to head up the department of homeland security. and later today, mitt romney will again meet with president-elect trump. this will be the second round of meetings for the one-time trump critic. george. >> thanks. let's talk about it with jon karl and, jon, extraordinary public jockeying for secretary of state job. the two main contenders it appears, mitt romney and rudy giuliani. it seems like trump is intrigued by romney but his staff not so much. >> he's facing open revolt by members of his staff like kellyanne conway, really do not like the idea and made it clear. but the controversy between those two, between giuliani and romney has opened up the possibility of a third kate and that's why you saw david petraeus at trump tower yesterday. bob corker, the senator from tennessee, foreign relations committee will be there today. i'm told general allen is also
7:14 am
in the mix. if he goes that direction and chooses a general for secretary of state you have the prospect of three generals on his national security team, mattis, a leading contender for defense, flynn at national security council and possibly petraeus. >> if he picked those they would need a waiver from congress. meantime, you do have this pick this morning, congressman tom price, orthopedic surgeon member of congress to head health and human services. it shows the real influence of mike pence. >> pence and price were very close in congress. both served in the house together and this is clearly showing the influence of pence. price is somebody by the way who was both a prominent critic of obamacare but actually wrote a plan to replace obamacare, no the simply one of those that said repeal. was also replace. >> a strong supporter of donald trump going back to may. >> absolutely. >> jon karl, thanks very much. all right, turning now to the trial of the suspected charleston, south carolina, shooter, dylann roof, he's accused of killing nine in a church.
7:15 am
a judge ruled he can act as his own attorney and abc's steve osunsami is in charleston with all of those details. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, amy this. is et issing up an ugly situation at federal court in charleston where dylann roof could now question the relatives of the victims he's accused of murdering. it's a stunning development in the trial of an accused mass murderer who police say is called for a race war. a federal judge in downtown charleston is allowing 22-year-old dylann roof to act as his own lawyer as long as his old defense team continues to sit by his side. roof began representing himself monday, still dressed in his prison jumpsuit saying very little as prosecutors interviewed potential jurors. he objected to one, the only juror of the day who was african-american. roof seen here at his arraignment is pleading not guilty. he could very well get the death penalty if convicted. he's seen here on a surveillance camera walking into the emanuel ame church in june of 2015 where
7:16 am
police he gunned down nine black worshippers at a bible study. police later found roof's white supremacist manifesto along with pictures of him at confederate grave sites holding the confederate flag. >> the danger is that someone like roof wants to make a statement and that's going to be the judge's job to make sure -- he's got the right to represent himself but doesn't have the right to make a mockery of the courtroom. >> reporter: it was just last week that the judge in this case even ruled that roof was competent to stand trial. jury selection in the case will last another two weeks. amy. >> all right, steve, thanks so much for that. michael. >> all right, thank you, amy. now to something you don't see every day. a bizarre incident at a houston airport. that right there is a passenger running along the tarmac after jumping from the plane's emergency exit and linsey davis is here and linsey, i have to ask you how could see even do that in a hard one to believe. the kind of stuff typically reserved for hollywood and nightmares which is why
7:17 am
passengers were stunned when a fellow passenger popped open the emergency door and the question this morning is why. passengers on this jet were stunned. >> the lady on this flight just opened the door and jumped out. >> reporter: the flight landed in houston from new orleans but not at the gate. the emergency door gone. as well as a passenger. she was seen spotted on video obtained by kprc running across the tarmac toward the terminal. but authorities quickly realized this is not a threat, but a medical case. >> psychiatric problem. airport response team 92. >> reporter: the woman was hospitalized overnight. >> frankly it's been a fear. i always watch the emergency doors and, you know, it's pretty frightening that somebody could do something like that. >> reporter: now for those worried about it happening midflight fear not, the emergency door cannot open while the plane is midflight. when it is in the air at altitude and when it's traveling at a high speed the cabin is
7:18 am
pressurized and it's that pressure that makes it impossible to open the door but still a fearful moment for a lot of people on the plane, yeah. >> thanks very much. back to rob. >> you mentioned the severe threat today. we had it yesterday. video out of grundy center, iowa, one >> likely strong winds also. all with this system that moved through gatlin burg in the way of rain. rain getting up into the northeast, new york, philadelphia by 1:00 p.m. i think it will be raining pretty heavily. bring along the rain gear. tomorrow another rain coming into the east coast as well around the same time northeast has extreme drought too so we'll take the rain. time for your tuesday trivia brought to you by wal-mart.

7:32 am
wife in a hospital bed. her face covered in bruises ranking from yale low to black because of her repeated beatings. the bridge of her nose broken. it's been six days since sherri papini was found bound on the side of a california highway. she had been missing for three weeks. now her husband keith says when he first reunited with sherri, she weighed only 87 pounds. her signature long blond hair had been chopped off. she was thrown from a vehicle with a chain around her waist attached to her wrists and a bag over her head. authorities are searching for the alleged captors papini described as two hispanic women. they say they are armed and dangerous driving a dark colored suv. keith also thanked the community and police all for hair help adding that any speculation that this was anything other than an abduction is flat out wrong. rumors, assumption, lies and hate have been both exhausting and disgusting. i understand people want the story, pictures, proof that this was not some sort of hoax, plan

7:34 am
vehicle? >> the information that we have received so far from our investigators that she was released, dropped off there. we did not have information that she was thrown from the vehicle. >> so you didn't know about the chain around her waist, a bag over her head? >> we did know about her restraints. >> and i know your investigators had the chance to squeak with ms. papini yesterday. what more have you learned about her ordeal? >> our investigators did an interview yesterday with her, a follow-up interview from thanksgiving day. they spoke to her for several hours and then in the late afternoon, early evening they were going over her interview and planned to interview her again today. >> and her husband's statement refers to online comments and activity. people questioning this suggesting it may have been a hoax. you still have no reason at all to doubt her story?
7:35 am
>> absolutely none. so far we are still investigating this as a kidnapping/abduction and everything that she is providing us thus far is indicating that. >> and what kind of leads do you have about what the possible motive may have been for this abduction? >> we currently don't have a known motive or reason for this abduction. we don't know if it was targeted to her specifically or a random abduction. >> and you know some have pointed to past online postings that under the name of sherri gray, her maiden name which included negative comments about hispanics. have you been able to run that down and determine whether it had any connection to this at all? >> we are familiar with that posting that is about 13 years old and our investigators are looking into that, as well. >> are you any closer to figuring out what may have happened here? it is such a strange story.
7:36 am
>> this is definitely a unique occurrence, it is our -- our investigators are still working the case as they have been since november 2nd and then, of course, with her release on thanksgiving day, they've worked throughout the thanksgiving holiday and the weekend and continue on this week to try to find more answers to the many questions that we have, as well. >> based on what she told you, are you searching for two hispanic women who may have been driving an suv? >> yes, that description was provided by ms. papini of two hispanic female adults armed with a handgun driving a dark suv. >> sheriff, thanks very much for your time. >> that's all we have at this time regarding the description. we hope to have a little bit more later today. >> and we will stay on this. thank you very much, sheriff. let's go to michael. all right. thank you, george. coming up on our big board a delta passenger banned for life

welcome back. time now for our big board and we're breaking down more of this morning's top stories. dan abrams here at the table. let's begin with delta air lines announcing that lifetime ban for a passenger after he was caught on tape going on a pro-donald trump tirade aboard a flight last week. take a look. >> donald trump. baby. that's right. this man knows what's up. we got some hillary clinton [ bleep ] on here. it's your president. every [ bleep ] of you. if you don't like it, too bad. >> all right. so all caught on camera there, dan. in a statement delta says we must require civility on our planes but the question is can an airline ban someone for life for something he or she said?
7:40 am
>> sure. the bottom line is airplanes are different. it's a private company, first of all, and, secondly, the rules are different on airplanes. remember, all the things that you're told to do and you have to do and, you know, you talk a particular way to a flight attendant, can you have a federal marshal waiting for you when you land so the bottom line is the rules are different on an airplane and it wasn't that he went to the desk and said i'm voting for donald trump and banned him. the issue was the way he conducted himself, the language that he used and the fact that other passengers on the plane could and probably were incredibly offended and maybe even frightened. >> threatened. >> by what he was saying. >> there are a lot of people out there. what about your first amendment many rights? does he have any legal action towards the airline. >> look, we always have the possibility that someone sues. it would be a frivolous lawsuit at this point. it is his first amendment right to say that it is their right to kick him off the plane. meaning you can't falsely yell fire in a crowded theater,

right. that's sort of the classic example that says there are limitations on the time, place and manner for how and where you can say things and yelling and screaming and using curse words and seemingly threatening on a plane does not invoke -- >> interesting he was not kicked off the plane, just banned from future flight. >> he was taken off then put back on. the question is do any of the other passengers end up suing saying i felt threatened. limited damages there. >> i didn't even think about that. thank you, dan. now to that playboy model at the center of another legal case of body shaming. dani mathers is now pleading not guilty to invasion of privacy after taking a photo of a nude 70-year-old woman at the gym and posting it on social media. sunny hostin joins us now. her attorney has this to say about his client. take a listen. >> dani very much regrets what happened. she has apologized for her behavior and we're looking forward to resolving this case in a very fair manner. >> all right, sunny, the photo is out there.
7:42 am
she apologized. the attorney apologized. but she pleaded not guilty so what's the strategy for her here. >> well, i don't know what the strategy is because this was despicable behavior, right? i think we can all agree this was just disgusting so sorry didn't going to get it, michael, in this case. i mean misdemeanor, a count of invasion of privacy she's been charged with punishable up to one year in prison plus a pretty hefty fine and this is sort unusual. these invasion of privacy charges are usually charged and filed against peeping toms so this is an unprecedented use of this kind of law for this kind of body shaming behavior, bullying and prosecutors are sending a message to would-be bullies this kind of behavior won't be tolerated. she's being made an example of. >> it's interesting. the prosecutor said, okay, body shaming may not be a crime but invading someone's privacy to do it certainly is. is this just the tip of the iceberg with social media the way it is? are we going to see more cases like this. >> i think we are going to see
7:43 am
more cases. i mean, some states have now increased penalties for this kind of secret photo taking. in new york where i'm sitting, amy and where you're sitting you can be punished for up to four years in prison. they've made it a felony here so this is the tip of the iceberg and prosecutors and i think our society is saying body shaming is no -- is just not tolerable. >> all right, sunny, that's good news indeed. sunny, thanks so much for that. up next hollywood heavy hitters embracing a new role. not on the big screen but in ads. this week three new fashion films premiere online all combining big stars like john krasinski, sienna miller, sacha baron cohen with prada and burberry. larry hackett is with us. i had to look up what a fashion film is. is that a big commercial, larry? >> in many ways it is. the old rules are changing. it used to be completely unshakable movie stars didn't endorse things, they were on top
7:44 am
and that's the way the world was. the fact of the matter is the one commercial getting a lot of attention and has for a couple of years is matthew mcconaughey for this car company. he became famous basically for his character on "true detective." he won an oscar and he's playing it in these commercials. these are for people who have really kind of firm public feelings about things and the idea their reputations won't be sullied by making commercials. if you're doing fashion by the way it is pretty groovy. people want to be in fashion ads and been doing these ads in magazines for years so the idea that now they're moving pictures is only going to be good are to the people who are in them and good for the fashion companies. >> well, i haven't heard groovy since "austin powers." >> that's why i'm doing it, michael. >> you mentioned matthew mcconaughey. a lot of stars at one point didn't do movies and television now. some doing television and these commercials. it's not cheap. celebrity endorsements are not cheap so how lucrative is this for the celebrity. >> you can make millions and millions of dollars. jim beam with mila kunis and

important. so, for example, ladies are doing squats and you'll see everybody here has a teammate. none can be successful on our own, not even you, not even me. we need somebody to check in with. using the fitbit you can track your progress and check your heartrate. they were doing something getting the heartrate up, cardio and put them in recovery mode and check, how high did my heart rate go and they can log it so they can check your progress, their resting heart rate. the relax part is critical. for example, this one i'm wearing, the charge 2 has an app for breathing. so let's say you're sitting ott your desk. ding, you just breathe with it because think about it, we can go three days without water, 30 days without food and three minutes without air. we need to breathe and relax and let's face it, family, holidays, stressful stuff. >> that's what we forget to do. breathe, take it in. take our time. you've had them doing squat,
8:25 am
lunges. >> they're working on their butts, their glutes, but simultaneous let's go back to squat jacks and get cardio so now they're burring calories, get the heart rate up but you don't want to stay there but recover and get them to recover into the lunges. go ahead and evacuate and lunge and put their airports up. stretching and open the body. all of you at home in chairs and cars all day long. we've got to get opened up. >> let's try our abs here. what do we got here? >> a lot of times people say to me, oh, i want to get six-pack abs. okay. >> i think we all want them. >> it's sort of a myth. it's an abdominal move will get it. it's food and think about this. look, emily, for example, if you touched underneath here their abs are on. but they're working on balance ech as we age, one of the most important things, walk around on our own two legs. he's firing his glutes. back to the fwluts. don't kill yourselves. and back so now they're doing
8:26 am
four things at one time. so it's about saving time and getting as much done as you can. now in the beefcake section. >> our arms here. >> this is what michael wanted to do. three-quarters of your arm. will stand up. bicep curl so now you're incorporating all these moves in one time and get things done in 30 minute, 45 minutes, about consistency, not about long workouts but get a teammate. get through these holidays so when you get into the new year, you've got it. >> 35, 40 minutes with a teammate. do it at home. thanks 20 gabby reece and our sponsor fitbit. we'll be right back.
