7:01 am
a computer systems down, worldwide for delta airlines and all flights around the world are grounded, no departures at any of the airports around the world. there are a number of flights already in the air when this happened, those flights are okay, they will continue to their destination, and some, the latest that we have is a that we have looking at delta's web site, we have had no information, delta's twitter page had no information. we fund one twitter handle, delta news hub which does seem to be hand by an actual person and they are putting out some alerts but there are a alerts basically just saying that our systems are down, check with the airline and hanging tight. one said fingers crossed and there is a lot of frustrated passengers down at the airport. lets go to lauren johnson down there at philly international. what are you seeing on the tote board there as far as the arrival and departure times.
7:02 am
>> reporter: so here's the deal, bob. i can tell you this right new looking up at the board george, can you show the board all of the flights are listed as on time here at the airport. also right here behind me people able to check in at kiosks. initially there was trouble checking in. you could not get it done. now people are allowed to check in at kiosk. this is the line not too long considering what is going on with dealt a the lines are relatively short here. people are still allowed to check in. you can check your bags but is there a ground stop on all flights here, at philly international airport. people still not allowed to fly but they are allowed to check in which is why we are seeing lines so short here but i'm sure it its backed up at the the gates. we will check the boards, bob and if you walk up to the airport you have no idea what is going on but you can still catch your flight on time but that is not what is happening past tsa and security and get back to the gate. we are trying to get more information and pass it as
7:03 am

7:10 am
closed after a ten year-old boy dies from the world's tallest water slide. investigators are trying to figure out what happened at this water park yesterday afternoon. water slide drops riders in rafts almost 170 feet at 55 miles an hour. riders must be 14 years old which is older then the boy who died, riders must also stand at least, 54 inches tall, and it is not phone if this had anything to do with the child's death. >> to be honest, this is not the something that we have experienced. safety of our guest is a priority. in addition to the safety, what happened on the ride, all of the staff are affected. >> boy who died is youngest son of the kansas state representative scott swab. >> he is only ten, and he was much under the age of what was allowed. >> we will be doing more on this in a little bit. 7:10. now developing, a suicide bomb explodes at the gate of a hospital.
7:11 am
at least 63 people have been killed, 50 others injured, this is happening in the southwestern city there. at the time have the blast officials say nearly 100 lawyers and india gathered at the hospital. body of a prominent lawyer, killed from an earlier shooting, was being kept there. officials are not saying if this has anything to do with the attack and no one has claim responsibility for the attack. both donald trump and hillary clinton are spending their campaigns on the economy this week with you new polls show the democrats widening their lead for the white house. >> doug lou saider from washington, of course this morning. donald trump may be responding to critics who say he has not offered enough specifics about his economic plan, doug. >> reporter: good morning, that is right. both trump and clinton will be spending time in michigan and talking about the economy and trump will offer specifics on what he would like to see changed if he becomes president. donald trump may still be drawing big crowds but his
7:12 am
sagging poll numbers is hoping new unwrap new economic proposals will provide a rebound. >> when we do that we will be comfortable to get agenda and nabtive campaign where it belongs which is comparing the economy under obama and clinton, verse the kind of growth economy that mr. trump wants to build. >> reporter: trump plan new child care deductions for parents, increase in domestic energy reductions, a pause for new regulations coming out of washington and much lower, 15 percent corporate tax rate. clinton campaign already deriding his economic approach called it trump economics. clinton will be in florida to bounce back from her own struggles after trying to explain another misstatement about her private e-mail server. >> i may have short circuited and for that i will try to clarify. >> reporter: clinton does have encouraging poll numbers. >> polls were all very good. she's way up in virtually every swing state, states like
7:13 am
georgia, and arizona are now in play for her. >> reporter: that is extraordinary. on the other hand these polls have been all over the map. abc news washington post poll that shows hillary clinton is eight-point up over trump. there is an l.a. times poll out thinks down to just one point, between the two and that would, of course, be within the margin of error. chris and alex. >> we will see. so much more to come, here in the next couple of months. >> doug, thank you. >> so true. big developing story right now is that delta's computer system is down and that means flights are down on the ground, not the taking off this has been going on for a couple of hours. >> but yet we go to lauren johnson and she said on the list they are all on time which is not the case, bob kelly. >> definitely not. even ones listed to take off at 6:45, they were listed on time. so obviously not only are the flights grounded but there is a possible with their flight boards down there.
7:14 am
bottom line here, delta airlines computer systems are down worldwide, all flights are grounded. the best twitter page or handle that you can go to, just to stay updated throughout the morning would be delta news hub, the delta twitter page or delta web site, don't even go there because it hasn't been updated in a couple days. this is the only twitter handle we have seen some live updates and basically they are responding, to passengers, that are asking for help that are stranded and saying our computer systems are down, hang in there, fingers crossed, and god speed. if you are heading down to the airport give yourself plenty of extra time. even if you are in the the flying delta, my tip would be to get your passenger ticket confirmed because all of the delta airline passengers today, they are going to try to jump on another airline to get to their destination.
7:15 am
so confirm your seat and make sure that your other airline knows i'm coming. i'm going to be there don't give that seat up. here's girard and frankford in the fishtown section of the city. this tractor trailer slam in the building knocking down the traffic signals, and the whole intersection is roped off, and police are waving you through the neighborhood expect delays, and route 15 trolley is using shuttle buses to day, and expect delays there as well. as far as major roadways, schuylkill expressway, starting to see some sun glare coming around conshohocken curve, delays boulevard up to belmont avenue. i talk about the route 15 trolley. downtown we will go live look at the vine street expressway where we are seeing sun glare for gang coming into philadelphia, folks heading over towards 30th street station to catch the train. probably going to be the way to go here train wise if you typically fly dealt a we have some sun glare all around the board here this morning. >> which means it is a

out of philadelphia and just not philadelphia but across the country. >> bob. >> when you say across the country we have a tweet that our fox station in d.c. put out and causing a backup at tsa line. we will show it. it is video. you can tell the line is getting long. look at this line. >> where did you say chicago. >> no, d.c. >> we had a camera at newark international airport. certain airports have more flights then others for dealt a here in philadelphia, american and u.s. air is the main carrier, and other air ports could have delta as main carrier. it just depend where you begin and end your trip but delta has all, has grounded all flights as of the moment around the world. here's an a accident at girard and frankford with this down traffic signal here, so this is causing delays in the neighborhood. delays coming from the schuylkill expressway with sun glare coming around
7:34 am
conshohocken curve. also delays on i-95 southbound from the betsy even through girard avenue. septa has added extra trains on the warminster line and that could be good news for some folks this morning but either way sue not bad standing outside right now, right. >> not really, pretty comfortable morning? judge? if you are standing by the pool that is best place to be. pool side later on should be fine. bus stop buddy has sunglasses on. temperature at philly international is 73 degrees. 73 percent relative humidity which isn't too bad for summertime in fail. weep 74. some cloud. mostly sunny skies rest of the take. nice and warm with a high of 88 degrees. sunset at 8:06 p.m. chris and alex. >> thanks, sue. well, federal state investigators went out across the region last week to search multiple properties connected to well known union leader john dougherty who runs international brotherhood of electrical workers local 98.

7:36 am
could be campaign contributions. this is a very, very, very powerful union that johnny dougherty has headed a long time. they made significant contributions to political campaigns. >> there is state level and federal level. let's start with the state level. >> right now it just came out that there has been a state grand jury i am paneled looking into claims of threats and intimidation begins union and johnny dougherty. there was supposedly an altercation between a non-union person and johnny dougherty a number of years ago and state is looking into that. that is on top of the federal investigation, where the fbi and irs raided his, headquarters and also his home. >> we are showing video back in january, it wasn't too long ago but there weren't any arrests made. >> there weren't. johnny dougherty they have been looking at him since 2006. first search warrant was served back in 2006 but no charges have ever been filed. a lot of people call him teflon john.

7:38 am
agents looking into this. somebody right now is sitting there at a desk combing through record. it could take a very long time for them to find anything. >> you mentioned state level what is fbi focus then, do you think it is more monetary. >> they seized all financial record, so it is either taxes, finances, political contributions. it has something to to with the financial record. this he will look through those boxes, and we will see what will happen. >> you can follow honey but hard to have the other stuff stick, when it comes to intimidation. we will see legally. >> they have a tape and person that he supposedly hit in the face, when there was an altercation. he has already testified before the grand jury. there could be something that comes from that. >> but legally speaking the money stuff has more legs long term. >> money stuff could potentially have longer in terms of jail sentences and punishment. >> how long. he is much more concern about the fbi probe. >> how long. >> depend what he d stuff like
7:39 am
this the feds take seriously. look at what they did here? this is a big, big wide investigation. they have been investigating for two years. if you go after a big guy like johnny dougherty you better have the goods. they are spending time, money. this is a big, big story. johnny dougherty is probably the most powerful non-politician in the state of pennsylvania. >> thanks, ken. nfl season off to a rough start. how about this why the first preseason game had to be cancelled, just hours before it was supposed to be played. ♪

8:13 am
coming up on 83:00. tragedy at a water park in kansas city is raising questions about safety. >> somehow a ten year-old would i died on the world's tallest water slide. he is the youngest son of kansas state representative scott swab. officials investigating right now what happened at this, they are calling it the slaterban ban water slide, it drops riders in rafts almost 170 feet at 65 miles an hour. this is a water sliding faster this than vehicle traffic. riders must be 12 but this kiddies ten. a couple years older then bow who died. riders must stand 54 inches tall, it is unknown if this had anything to to with the child's death. >> we honestly don't know what happened, that is why an investigation, full investigation is underway. we have to understand what has happened. >> to be honest, this is in the something we have experienced ever before.
8:14 am
safety of our guests is a priority, in addition to the safety and what happened on the ride, other staff are affected. >> the ride remains closed and park officials say it will stay closed until a all of the ride are deemed safe. there was a change made to the age requirements for this particular water slide, when it opened it was 14, dropped to 12 but this boy was ten. >> so what does that mean then for this investigation? we have attorney angie, here, any possible liability. because this is certified as tallest water slide. good morning to you. they were rushing to this done it seems lake and there were some issues. >> certainly the opening was not seem less and flawless. one of the co-owners of the park reported two years ago in 2014 when it was slated to open that they could not open on their projected date because design they used was more appropriate for roller coaster and didn't translate to the context. they had spend about a
8:15 am
million-dollar redesigning this water slide. it seems pretty clear that the goal of this was to get the tallest water slide in the world because they wanted it certified in the book of world record and they did that and question is at what expense to the safety of its riders. >> do we know about what happened in this particular case? did the kid fly out of the raft, tell us about the raft itself. it looks like a log jameer rides where you are stack up in a row but big thing for safety was enough weight has to be in that raft at the time of the ride to keep it from flying off the course the track. >> flying off the track because when they were project to open back two years ago when they were doing tests with sandbags in the raft they would literally fly out of the raft. so it is unknown right now. investigation will reveal details. first part of the investigation who, what, when and where. they need to find out how a ten year-old boy got onto a ride that wasn't meant to
8:16 am
accommodate lighter younger patrons. weight requirement for how many weight need to be in these rafts so they stay on the rides track, three to 400 pounds. were there eyewitnesses did people see the spokeswoman for the park was incredibly candid when they just don't know what happened. they have to talk to witnesses. find out surveillance. something that gives them an look at what happened to the little boy and real part begins. >> when it comes to water parks and you can identified this, a lot of times we see little height restriction, kid had to walk up and measure up. those are there for a reason. do you think parks might say hey we have an age requirement. we want it to be 12 years old. and then also we put a height requirement. if the kid didn't fit that we cannot help that. is that the argument. >> they could say that but they will not get very far with that argument. at the end of the day they are an amusement park, operating for profit and the safety of
8:17 am
their customers and riders is paramount concern. the weight requirement that the raft needs in order to stay anchored down on the track is probably going to be one of the key factors. how does the park know they have between three and 400-pound in that raft before they send these riders down 160-foot drop or whatever it is. >> also, we have check with a reporter in kansas and she said something to the effect of this may have been a promotional event for whatever it was for the opening of the park over the weekend, i'm just wondering and this will go to the investigation, this child now is the son of a state representative, and you wonder if the parks said well, you are the state representative, he is almost the age, go right ahead sir bring your child on this. if they looked the other way and bent the rules because of who was riding it. >> that is a very interesting point and something that they are sure to cover as they talk to everybody in the course of their investigation, not just
8:18 am
riders there who witnessed it, not just video but park operators, you know, what was the role of the people responsible for operating the ride. >> after an incident like this as you mentioned this was at opening event do you think, and of course, closed to day as well, and yesterday. do you think they can open it after something like this. >> from an optics point of view it doesn't look good, does it. it has only been operational for two years. they had delayed opening, reconstruction when they realized their design cast flawed and the park spokesperson said they are committed to keeping it closed as long as necessary to ensure the safety. >> so it doesn't happen again. >> this poor kid. >> thanks very much. >> thanks for having me. great to be here. other big question is, bob kelly, the airports, right now, what a mess. >> after 2:30 this morning updating breaking news delta airlines computer systems have
8:19 am
been down. flights grounded around the world 56789400 flights a day comes out of mainly their main hubbies out of atlanta, georgia. not a lot of flights scheduled this morning in and out of philadelphia difficult get a message or tweet for some pass evening hours said we got word that wheels up to start boarding. there could be some spots signs of good news here but officially delta says all their systems are still down and all flights are grounded. if you do have a ticket to fly out of philadelphia international, even fit is not delta, would i get down there early and make sure you confirm your seat, on that airline. there will be a lot of delta passengers looking for alternate means to get out of philadelphia this morning and even if they do flip the switch and power computers back it up, it is not a easy fix. southbound 295 an accident at bellmawr interchange there at 295 and is there your speed meter reading slow go on the
8:20 am
schuylkill, 295 and shade's long route 73. how much longer will this sun hang with us? sue has the answer, right now, right. >> how about immediately, yeah. >> immediately. >> we will talk about a great day at the beach today. so many folks shore bound this week because it is getting closer to back to schooltime. temperatures in the the lower 80's on the beach and we have a sea breeze, coastal breeze, northeasterly five to ten. surf temperature cooled off to 07 degrees. moderate risk of rip currents. so swim near the life guards, with a few clouds around, and uv index is seven. as far as precipitation is concern, nothing to show you on radar at all. we will get to a high later on of 88 degrees, inland here in the city. eighty-nine tomorrow. we are in the 90's, it looks like maybe for rest of the week. could hit 90 tomorrow. wednesday, thursday, friday, maybe even saturday and sunday this looks like a long, sticky heat wave, alex and chris.
