7:01 am
help passengers as they were able to escape. there is video from inside the subway station where you can see people walk ago long the rails there and thick, black smoke, hoping to find a way out of that station. one person says that the metro was leaving the station when there was a loud explosion that could be heard inside. those are passengers trying everything they can to get out. you can imagine mass kay uses they were dealing with their. at the airport just an hour before that explosion at the metro station, two explosions there caused people to flee frantically as ceilings started to collapse and cave-in. pipes burst, bags went flying and airport work shore checks in baggage says first explosion happened near a counter where customers paid for overweight baggage. she said that second blast hit near star bucks cafe in that departure terminal. belgium prosecutors say at least one of those explosions was caused by a suicide
7:02 am
bomber. listen to how witnesses described what they saw and heard. >> unaudible. >> smoke, water dripping from the ceiling, and we were just... unaudible. >> now all of this comes just days after that main suspect in the deadly november 13th terror attack was arrested friday in brussels. after his arrest, 26 year-old salah abdeslam told authorities that he had created a new network and was planning new attacks. unfortunately alex and bill, this has happened, we're now
7:03 am
hearing as we said that these are terror related. we are not sure directly related to him but we do know that 23 people are dead, and another passenger, alex and bill that came into the airport just ten minutes before that attack, described hearing all of the chaos, said that at the counter you could hear someone speaking a different language and then the explosion happened back to back and then he describe it as a war scene. saying kids were screaming, yelling. people were yelling, grabbing their bags and everybody was trying to get out as quickly as they could. they were end ising passengers out to the tarmac while trying to investigate exactly what was going on inside. it is had hard to understand when people are frantic and emotions are running high exactly what happened but from every account we have heard so far mass chaos. >> everybody is thinking about the fact that there was a recent arrest that happened a couple days ago but prime minister has said there is no direct correlation at this point that they want to confirm with that attack but what we do know like we said he was active and that he
7:04 am
state that had hey there are others out there and we do have something that we're trying to work on. >> they made promises on friday and here we are on tuesday dealing with all this. >> i think keyword that alex pointed out is confirmed. nobody wants to confirm those connections? i mean very clearly they are taking that seriously, french officials, dutch officials they are talking about securing their border and's port and port facilities as they look into whether there is a coordinated effort. >> we have to be afraid at home knowing we had a flight coming from there 751 american airlines flight. dave kinchen is at the airport and he will have more on what is happening at airport in light of all this. >> we will go to dave right now, dave? >> reporter: yeah, here in philadelphia international airport we have been trying to talk to a few passengers as they make their way toward flight that are in where near belgium area and they are too bus toy talk on camera. they say they are watching situation closely, little nervous but they are getting updates from american airlines and other agencies as well. lets go to video.
7:05 am
american airlines has confirmed it canceled flight 751 set that leave brussels and arrive in philadelphia at 1:40 this a afternoon. now, this happened, of course, a after at least two explosions at brussels airport including one reportedly happening near the american airlines check in desk. they are raising all kind of fears about well-being of passengers and so forth. statement released by american airlines says that the airline is taken saying of our employees in brussels after this morning's event, at this time there are no reported injuries to our employees. it doesn't say anything about passengers at this point. statement also says that american airlines flight 75 is first has been canceled for today but operations at brussels airport resume, when operations resume, they will reaccommodate the customers, again that statement does in the mention anything about the state of passengers or, whether passengers are accounted for.
7:06 am
this is american airlines check this desk where one of those explosions went off so that raises all kind of concerns about americans who may have been traveling from brussels to philadelphia, or to the you had, possibly to philadelphia, we don't know if any of those folks were in that area or associated with the flight canceled, to philadelphia, but a lot of questions here and a lot of certainly nervous feelings here i think that is fair to say. now back to you good one of the other concerns, davis in brussels there are people who as you pointed out traveling through. so that is one of the concerns why france is so impacted, others, you don't necessarily have to go to or coming from it could have been a stop over for you. >> reporter: that is true. there are questions there. we will just to have wait and see, but there is no doubt it could have been a stop over which is alarming enough potentially alarming enough. >> brussels airport is very popular n2015 they had 23 million passengers get through that airport. so we know it is one
7:07 am

7:08 am
four other flights set to go into jfk. we have one coming to philadelphia, ten going into new york. all of these flights canceled and those folks, travelers, obviously still there in brussels. american airlines has given us a phone number if you think you have a loved one and what is interesting facebook just activated their facebook security check similar to what they did when paris attacks happened. you can go to safety check brussels and it will automatically tell you if any of your friend happened to check in brussels over the last couple of days or so. northbound lanes of the i-95, an accident right here near commodore barry bridge. that is causing delays this morning. accident southbound route one in bucks county causing a i delay in the left lane. but other thing i noticed here that is sun glare, wick. right around that dashboard level but keep it coming, sue because we will get up to a ten over next couple days. >> we sure will. we had clear skies overnight which is why sunnies so
7:09 am
incredibly bright this morning but that sun will take us a few degrees higher then yesterday. we will go with an eight out of ten. no snow like yesterday either. clear and cold this morning. bus stop buddy for folks who are not on spring break, west chester school district you are going to school and archdiocese schools are going at least through thursday. so anyway wind chills in the 20's this morning. make sure those kid have enough on and yeah, go flyers. they won last night. 35 degrees right now. feels like 29. plenty of bright sunshine but we do expect to gain 20 degrees by even of the take with the high of 55. that is seasonal. not as cold tonight with the lows in the mid 40's, that is your fox cast for tuesday, seven day forecast just ahead, alex and bill. well, major money troubles down the shore, atlantic city seems to be down on its luck. >> they have issues and mayor don guardian is a once noing that the sit government will shut down. steve keeley is in atlantic city which more details and he

7:11 am
police and fire fighters, tax collectors, coincidently and maybe some trash collectors you would hope are going to work after april 8th. so what does that mean? look in the parking lot here, city of atlantic city senior services program truck, little things like that thaw you don't think of on a normal basis what will seniors do without their programs. meals and wheels and things like that. this story could be bad now but could get worse and coincidently, today alex and bill, the county has its budget hearing. twenty-three towns in atlantic county, atlantic city isn't paying bill to the county. so county may have to furlough workers. we could have more bad announcement today from the county executive whose parking spot is right here and he will spend a lot of time here in the come days as well. >> we know you will stay on it, steve. you have analyzed this as much as anybody and we will get back to steve to find out if this is bad economics or bad decision making. i know steve will have the a answer. >> probably a little bit of both but hand it to the fact that police and fire are

7:32 am
collapsed, pipes burst and bags went flying. a an airport employee who checks in baggage says first explosion happened near counters where customers pay for overweight baggage. that second blast here near star bucks cafe in that terminal. belgium prosecutors say at least one of those explosions was caused by a suicide bomber. a all flights from brussels were canceled, a arriving planes and trains were diverted. an hour later, a single will explosion during a morning rush hour at the metro station, brussels transit spokesperson confirms to us that 15 people were dead, 54 more are injured there. you can see in that video first responders were working outside in the streets inner that subway station trying to hear from people who escaped the explosion this video shows thick, black smoke filled that station and passengers were seen walking on the railways, trying their hard toes get out. listen to how some described what happened.

7:35 am
line where security checkpoint and here where tsa is, it is in the area where kiosks printing off their boarding passes and checking in your luggage in that area that is how it seems to be how people described that area. >> hopefully if that is in fact the case that will minimize some of the numbers of the individual impact by this, and not heaviest traffic area. >> but still, thank you, lauren, very major airport. 23 million people go through this we know dave kinchen there was a philadelphia flight that was also involved that has been canceled because of this. >> reporter: that is right, first breaking information, "fox news" report ago this death toll has listen to 28, 28 now, dead in the brussels terror attack there. so latest update there, and as you have been saying there was a flight headed here to philadelphia international airport from brussels. lets go to video of the brussels airport scene right now. american airlines flight 751 was set to depart at 9:40 a.m. and arrive here at philadelphia international at 1:40 this afternoon.

7:50 am
it wasn't so much focus but everything just felt good ape fell into place. we have good players on the team. they played together. they bought into everything that we were doing and it happened to work out. >> well, would you guys like to predict another championship next year. >> definitely. >> wow. >> another one. >> yes. >> usually when i come to the school i play somebody, in basketball. >> you may in the want to play one of these girls. >> anybody want to play me one on one real quick. >> bailey. she's a big player. you are going to go drexel next year. >> yes good she just had a root canal. how does it feel to win. >> an amazing feeling. i hope girls can do it again next year. great way to even our season. >> i would like to you do, pick a girl i can play one on one. maybe play defence. >> what is her name. >> kate kahn will probably

7:53 am
7:54 am
7:55 am
take a look at your health, ultrasound technique, may be able to kill, cancer tumors, without harming healthy tissue. >> so doctor mike joins us in the studio this morning with why this could be huge when it comes to prostate cancer. doctor mike i'm not familiar with mens health but thinks different to have men be asking for ultrasound. >> this isn't just a treatment or diagnostic test, this could be revolutionary. if you're diagnosed with prostate cancer, and the cancer is within, the gland, this technique may not only get rid of your cancer but
7:56 am
actually prevent things like erectile dysfunction, and incontinence which are bigger problems. take a look, it is called high intensity focused ultrasound. and what they do is they use a probe and they apply at high intensity ultrasound beam just to the cancer. that is that blue thing is the prostate. what it does is it heat up that cancer to the point where it kills all of the cancer cells and it leaves all of the issue just fine. so it doesn't damage nerves that can lead to erectile dysfunction and incontinence, all of those things are amazing. this need more work to refine it but i have had a patient who used this for other things and it is an amazing technique. >> this is a a huge issue for men because as we were talking about during the break, presents state cancer impacts significant numbers of people. >> it does. if you think of the wells fargo center and you fill it
7:57 am
up with 27,000 people, that is how many men will die, this year, from prostate cancer. >> my goodness good where can we see this happening wherever one can have access to it. >> there are centers using this technique now. i think if this pans out. what was amazing about this study is they were cancer free, five years later. no evidence of cancer. the trick here is getting it early, and diagnosing it early because this works when the prostate cancer is within the prostate capsule itself. now i have said and i have stated that i will go to my grave saying it i believe in the psa because you want to find prostate cancer early get they are regular checkups. >> part of the reason why this is so goodies for men a lieutenant of people don't think you have to test, one because it is so invasive. so seeing this may encourage more people to get test. >> if we can find a way to treat prostate cancer without a lot of negative side effects
7:58 am
then i think it is a win/win situation especially for younger people. if you are a young man and you have prostate cancer you have to think of things like impotence, and erectile dysfunction and incontinence. >> you have a young are sibling. >> i do have a young are sibling. >> that is in the good for my health. >> yes. >> why is that. >> well, new study shows if you have a younger sibling, and you are much less likely to develop obesity. new there is a couple of theories. >> because they are eating all of the food. >> no, one if you have a young are child. my son nicholas and amy are always chasing each other and doing all kind of things. so one theory they are more active if you have a sin blink. other is that mom and dad are not as focused, on you because you are an only child, alex. what are you eating ? did you finish your plate. we're all over you.
7:59 am
with my wife's list bet and i we have knows ised when amy came along it is i a whole different ballgame. when nicholas, when he haded a belch we were thinking bit. now with amy and nicholas, okay, it happens. now i'm an only child. >> i have a imagery friend. >> wow, really. >> yes. >> we can talk about the ramifications of that. >> yes. >> so, a lot of studies but you believe this is one that we can say i'm going to be very healthy because i have a little sister. do you believe in this one. >> i don't know. >> come on. >> and i think it depend on the individual. there is a lot of genetics if you have parents that are obese, you're more likely. look, if you have to love your kids, and that is the bottom line. new i am will's an only child because after my parents had me they were against, my goodness, forget it, in more.
8:00 am
>> did you have a imagery friend. >> no. >> he has been saying this on tv. >> i was in the 60's. i had rockets. >> yes, i had my own space program. >> i love you, love you it is tuesday, march, no -- yeah, march 22nd, 2016. we will begin this morning with breaking news. well, it is happening again. a lot have people are thinking about this terror strikes, brussels, and three bombing attacks this morning. >> dozens of people have been killed, many more injured after explosions at the airport and subway, in brussels. we are following breaking news out of belgium's capitol. >> lauren, you have been following this all morning since it first happened which was 8:00 a.m. their time and you have updated this. >> speaking at a news conference in brussels belgium prime minister says what we have feared, has happened, we were hit by blind attacks. he took to twitter saying this i strongly condemn these
8:01 am
hateful attacks. our thoughts go out to the victims and their families. we stand united against terrorism. the federal prosecutor say all three explosions were terrorist attacks, a spokesmen a says 15 people were killed, 55 injured in an explosion on a train. you can see there outside metro station, first responders, were running through the streets there trying to help injured people. rescue workers set up a makeshift medical treatment center in a pub near that subway station to help passengers as they escaped. this is video from inside the subway station. people walking a long the rails, inside that thick black expect as a result of the explosion, hoping to find a way out. one person says that the metro was leaving the station when there was a loud explosion, that happened there. now all of this happened about an hour after two explosions a at the airport but right new we are taking a live look at the airport at pictures from brussels. emergency crew is still on the scene there because they have a lot to investigation and a
8:02 am
lot to try to figure out what happened but at the airport two explosions called people to flee frantic will there as ceilings collapsed, pipes burst and bags went flying. airport work hours checked in baggage said that first explosion happened near the counters where customers are paying for overweight baggage. he a said second blast here near a star bucks cafe in that departure terminal area. belgium prosecutors say at least one of those explosions was in fact caused by a suicide bomber. belgium media reported at least 13 people dead and two explosions at that a airport, many others injured. listen to how one witness calmy described the kay cross. >> unaudible.
8:03 am
>> smoke, water dripping from the ceiling. we had to walk through puddles. we were evacuated. somebody said over loud speaker this is an evacuation. >> unaudible. >> a massive evacuation. there was no immediate claim of responsibility for those attacks. belgium prime minister said there was no immediate evidence that linked the key paris suspect salah abdeslam to the attack. he is main suspect in the deadly paris attacks. he was arrested friday in brussels. have a his arrest he reportedly told authorities he created a new network and was planning new attacks. european security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks now and warn that the islamic state group was actively preparing to strike. it seems like they absolutely did that this morning, twice at the airport, bill and alex, and then again about a half an hour to an hour later at a metro station that was full of
8:04 am
people because you have to remember it was 8:00 a.m. there lots of people at the airport trying to catch flights or subway station trying to get around there to and from work or where ever people are going a at that hour. >> no confirmation as you pointed out but there are rumblings that people are starting to claim responsibility for this, the larger terror groups. >> we heard islamic state group is claiming responsibility on social media they often do after these types of events happen. no confirmation just yet but there is some reports out there floating around that is exactly what happened. >> even the prime minister said we have been at war. we have suggest that we are in act of war referencing the paris attacks and what is happening in europe. we will check on how this has been affecting flights, so dave kinchen is at philadelphia international airport there was a flight scheduled to come to philadelphia and also flights leaving philadelphia, dave. >> reporter: yes, there was an american airlines flight, from belgium that was scheduled to come here to philadelphia, that was canceled, a at least
