7:00 am
a little girl's life comes to tragic ends. police say her parents refuse to get medical help for pneumonia, because it is against their religion. why this belief may be more common than you think. >> that's right, wood chuck ers, it is groundhog day. get up and -- >> and will he see his shadow? all eyes on punxsutawney phil as he makes his prediction for the rest of winter. live no gobblers knowledge, the world's most page us groundhog emerges to see his shad/. >> double take, the beehive is buzzing after big announcement from beyonce, she is expecting twins? how the worlds is reacting, right now. >> ♪ >> okay, let's explain this groundhog thing for people that are new to this february 2nd. we want it to be cloudy, so that the groundhog won't be afraid of its shadow, and run back into its borough.
7:01 am
>> correct. >> look, it is snowing, too, see that? >> right. spot on radar, just little bit ago. >> but again there is big rat really doesn't know what you are talking about because he's only about 40% accurate. >> cents it a charming tradition. >> i think it is a conspiracy by the one hotel in town and the conseco company. >> yep, it cost more for hotel room in punxsutawney than does for one at the superbowl. >> really? >> because they don't have that many hotels there. >> oh,. >> this is the only time of the year they really use it. >> well we will get back to that in about 20 minutes when the big thing couldn't of comes out. >> ya. >> the groundhog. >> give it some respect, calling it a rat, a rodent. >> what did it ever do to you. >> he always by the the guy that pulls him out. >> that often hams, you're right. anyway, well, for us, though, i think we will see some
7:02 am
sunshine unlike punxsutawney, with the cloud cover, going once again seven out every ten, breezy today, we've got a groundhog with bus stop buddy waiting right there at the stop. temperatures in the three's right now. we look at radar, and there you see, the snow showers, the western part of the state, including punxsutawney. but not too much showing up here. we've got cloudy skies, though, and 35 degrees in philadelphia, windchill, though, of 29. other temperatures are in the 20's and three's, as well. forty-five is our high. and tonight we are down into the 20's, as we get ready for cold cold weekend, bob kelly. >> cold. good morning, everybody, getting up, getting out, definitely chilly start, slow going here on i95 for the gang out of northeast philadelphia, already heavy from academy, god bless you, through the betsy ross bridge into downtown philly, update on the lincoln drive accident. overturned vehicle, northbound, on the lincoln drive, all northbound lanes are closed between gypsy, and
7:03 am
rittenhouse, local detours, accident on the northeast extension, actually the onramp to go north at the lansdale interchange. and then two tractor-trailer accidents, in new jersey, one here along route 40, 45, police are on the scene investigating there. another one, northbound on the new jersey turnpike, somebody just sent me message saying it is there, kind of laying on its side. but there is access from route, from exit seven, to go north, mass transit so far so good. mike and alex back to you. >> okay, back to delaware. >> for this prison hostage drama continues, now, an hour 21 of this possible haj situation, james p bonds correctional facility in smyrna. >> now, some people on twit here work for correctional facilities, some of them seem to think that they may have this thing resolved because of the live shot. >> let's get back to smyrna, please. hostages, i mean, prisoners
7:04 am
now laying face-down in handicuffs being taken out of the prison. >> and one of the viewers saying maybe get their number see who is accounted for, what inmates they have, right there. so, at the latest we know, two hostages, still, though, a 82 inmates still in that prison facility. >> okay. so we have jenny joyce down there, steve keeley is on it, as well. let's start with gin watch have you heard? >> let's start with jenny. what have you heard? >> few minute ago, there was prison employee walked out to the parking lot. i said hey do you have any sort of update for us? he said no, this building that we're standing in front of, this is for parole violations, so all of the activity happening way, way off in the distance, so our best bet now to take a look at the chopper video as you said it appears as though the situation is under control. what we can see is some sort of officers, unclear whether or not they're with the department of corrections, or if they could be with delaware
7:05 am
state police et cetera courting prisoners out, one by one escorting them out of the area. i did talk with delaware still police, pio moments ago, he said anything has to go through department of corrections, they unfortunately have not gotten back us to, the last information that we've received came about 2:00 this morning, two department of corrections employees, being held hostage, inside of one of these buildings here, at the correctional center, as well as 82 inmates, who were also inside. so, taking a look at that video, we are determining again, it appears as though the situation is under control. we are waiting on official word at this hour. mike and alex. >> okay, maybe we can get a hole of the delaware state
7:06 am
police who could give us more information what's going on, we've made calls to them, as you just said. >> well, also steve keeley there on the scene, let's get little more from steve. also getting reaction from people in the area, too, steve? >> reporter: look, when you 21st came on the air at 6:00 remember i mentioned a helicopter that was hovering real low. obviously that's not a news helicopter. no news helicopters will be allowed 200 feet above this prison. so we thought common sense told us something was going on. and that was in the extreme darkness, as well. and so, no news helicopter would be here in the dark, and interfering with what's going on in this prison. so, perhaps that was an official state helicopter, and things did develop to the point where possibly this did end, and they just haven't had a chance to update us yet as you can see still working on there is but see in the live picture, how far up, how far back, the news helicopters are, as they hover over this. this helicopter i'm talking about was almost tree height at one point over the yard.
7:07 am
>> other interesting thing i thought you guys talk about atica a half hour ago, that happened in 1971, co-innings dentally, the year this place opened in 71, but, 25 years after that, just as we started this show, in 1996, they built a super secure edition, 600 maximum security cells, for the meanest dudes, always lock up except for three hours a week only. that's only half hour-a-day, only six of the seven days a week where they're out for exercise, and delaware, according to national report, that just came out, eight weeks ago, the third highest percentage every people in solitary confinement, and corrections people, experts in the fields, say, hey, solitary is the worse thing you can do to somebody. and, the federal report also said that delaware had the fifth worse of all 50 states, the top five, fifth worse, in prison over-crowding conditions, that has not just the inmates complaining, but the guards, as women, because they're dealing with angry
7:08 am
inmates, the ratio is too high per guard, and look, i pulled this out. delaware's been advertising, trying to fill guard positions, recruiting guards, they've got this job posted, and it only pays $32,000, and how about this for a coincidence? look, the paragraph i pulled out of the job description, look what it says right there, it does say already that this possibly could be a dangerous job, and almost predicting what happened here, because it says that there is hazards pay included number one, you can see why, and the ridder listed, observing inmates activities to detect unusual or prohibitive behavior which may and threat to the security of the inmate of the visitors and of the security right in this prison. so it is almost like they're predicting in their job listing what possibly happened here. and family members have said, hey, pray for our guards. they need help. they need extra people. and this place is way over crowded for what it was built
7:09 am
for. guys? >> okay, that could be the situation here. let's get to an expert now, historian and professor, doctor heather thompson. she studied prison riots for years. >> she even wrote a book on the atica uprising blood in the water, we've been telling her about this situation, she is joining us via skype right now from toronto. >> but you also studied temple university as well, right? >> i d i was on the faculty. >> so i know you can't see, because you're in michigan now. >> toronto. >> toronto rather. >> toronto. >> we're seeing prisoners taken out of one of the buildings, placed on their stomachs, and handcuffs, now being moved to another one of the buildings. do you think these are just maybe the guys who don't want to protest, being taken to a safer place? >> well it is not clear. we have to wait on the department to tell us what's going on. one thing we know is that many of these protesters have already released not just hostages, but prisoners. so it is possible that these
7:10 am
are prisoners who just have been released. but it is also possible that in somehow in the early morning hours this facility was retaken, in which case these would be the prisoners who had protested in the first place being pulled out and moved. we're just shot sure. >> so heather you're saying basically you think this might be over? because it has been 21 hours now. >> well, it very well could be. even if it is, i hope the media keeps focus attention on this, this event reminds us we're in serious, serious crisis with our nation's penal facilities, crisis for the men lock up and the women, crisis for the guards in charge, this is just a wake-up call like atica we didn't heed it then, hopefully this time we will. >> one of the hostages forced to call into a newspaper and say some of their demands, and it sounded like from the conversation that they want
7:11 am
better conditions at the prison. can you talk little bit more? under staffed, some of the things that may be going on there? >> i think talking about over-crowding which seems like the number one problem at this place? >> exactliment as your reporter gave grave overview of just how bad things are. human beings just spending way too much time in solitary, these places are over crowded, the men have asked for some basic rehabilitation, education, clarity in the world, again, very, very basic human rights. you can't change people this much and not expect if they're not given any means to re-enter society. of course the guards also are then in very much jeopardy. >> yes, for very low salaries, matter of fact. >> very slow salary, and just not listening to the people, by the way, not just delaware, delaware has particularly bad marks. but the same thing could very easily happen in philadelphia, anywhere, in fact, in september of this year,
7:12 am
prisons across the country errupted on the anniversary every atica because the conditions are universally a precious. >> of course atica back in 197 is when governor rockefeller got frustrated ending up-state police and people died. >> thirty-three inmate, at one point, there is a planned protest, for 10:00 this morning, i don't know, because we aren't sure if this is still ongoing if that protest will still happen. but it seemed like families of some of the inmate, and they were talking about this. they were saying they needed to be treated better, in this correctional facility. >> looks like pretty dilapidated facility built in 1971. >> people are sentenced for crimes does not mean that they're no longer human beings. these kind of issues, basic treatment, ones that we all really need to heed, this is an opportunity, very tragic one i'm deeply worried what's
7:13 am
going on inside. even if it is over the other we need to remember that's whether some of the worse abuses of prisoners took place, we are now learning that, behind those closed doors. so we need more transparency in prisons, too, to make sure that their run in a humane way. >> what did you learn from writing your book? blood in the water. >> learning about attic a and blood in the water very much a story about prisoners trying to get basic needs met, being ignored, rebellion like the one we just saw, and the guards and prisoners alike asking for help, the governor really in this case not heeding it, and then sending in incredibly angry members of law enforcement and over the course every 15 minutes killing 39 guards and prisoners alike, wounding severely 128 men, then prisoners then severely
7:14 am
tortured for days and weeks afterward. need to heed historical lessons. >> thank you for your information. , i don't know that i ever spoke with someone who studied prison riots. >> thanks for bringing me on. >> doctor heather, historian professor every history at the university of michigan but did teach at temple for about six years. >> about six years. >> you suggest we start a new segment called the trump tweet. >> seems like every morning, from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m., president trump will wake up and start tweeting some of his thoughts for the day. a lot of times updated information stories already reporting so i think it would be a good idea, okay, what's on his mind? >> does he have one out today? >> he does have one out today. >> another day, another flurry of activity at the white house. with a new secretary of state sworn in. stark warning to an enemy of
7:15 am
ours. more cabinet nominations advancing. >> so this while on capitol hill, democrats, do their best, doing their best, to try and p.m. the brake outs with this. >> the prospects are tightening for secretary of education, nominee, betsy. >> i cannot support this nominee. >> announced they will not vote for her nome things, toward the final confirmation vote wednesday as well despite democrats efforts to holds up mr. trump's secretary of treasury health and human services and attorney general. newly confirmed secretary every state, rex tillerson was sworn in yesterday in one of the many issues he inherit is iran's provocative behavior, already the administration issuing this warning. >> now feeling em bold edge, as of today officially putting iran on in the. >> meanwhile on the southern boards err homeland security secretary, john kelly; getting a first-hand look at the
7:16 am
challenges for his border patrol agent, and says, he hopes to have the wall built within the next two years. >> like to work closely with the mexicans. >> two years. there is melania, reports this morning, that the first lady, melania trump, may not move into the white house ever. >> apparently she and president trump will re-evaluate toward the end of the school year if they will keep this a rangment. we new this would happen. this was put out there right before he was inaugurated. but we're not sure if melania anbar on at this point will move to washington at all. that's a report that's out there. it also says they will do what's best for baron. but when it comes to the tweets that donald trump put out this morning, he said that iran has been formally put on notice for firing a balistic missile, should have been thankful for the terrible deal the us made with him. >> just like general flynn was saying. >> just reinforcing that this
7:17 am
morning as well. >> we have a look at the statistics for punxsutawney phil, 131 years of this tradition, has been going on, but we have 102 longer winters -- oh, here we go. happening now! >> the guy's gone in. >> okay. >> into the borough. >> this is couple of miles -- >> okay! >> one, two, three, punxsutawney phil out. >> now, he normally will bite and pea on these guys. >> they do wear gloves. >> said he sees them. >> oh, oh. >> he didn't want to come out. >> i see teeth. >> i see teeth? >> chomp, chomp. >> maybe he bit him already. >> oh, come on, boys, we need something. >> they should know there is a camera here. >> can't see. >> they bang on the door to wake him up. they're surprised when he's not in a good mood.

(cheers). >> there are flurries in the air. >> okay. this, let's put phil on the stump. >> from the stump they decide if there is a shadow. >> don't look good guys. >> oh, oh,. >> just one of america's most dopy events. >> here we are. >> look at america. >> phil, phil. what do you mean he don't like

7:25 am
they want to bring home the bacon, hillary. >> hey, good morning, that's right. little bit of confusion about this story. but here is the deal. so, according to the u.s. da, frozen pork pelly is at its lowest level since 1957. there is about 17.8 million paged every frozen pouring belly. so what's happening is meat processers are paying about 30% more in january, and february, for pork belly than they were a few month ago. so all this trickle down effect could roll over to the consume earl. you could be paying more for bacon. you aren't right now. but could have that effect depending on how things and processers react if they pass that cost on to you. >> bacon, of course, comes from the belly of the pig. >> of the pig. >> okay. >> well, i wouldn't want to see this happen. >> you know, i think this whole bacon thing has been over blown over the last five
7:26 am
years. >> you mean like the bacon beer, the bacon butter, and the bacon dessert, bacon cheese cake? >> everything is great with bacon. but you love bacon? >> how can you tell, when my parent, my dad is in town? >> he makes you bacon. >> well, i come to work with a plastic bag. >> full of bacon. >> zip long bag of paying on. >> then we all have to smell the bacon. >> no, you asked me for some of my bacon. >> true. anyway, i think we will be okay then right? hillary? >> reporter: yes, that's right. there is no shortage, but pork belly prices for processers are just rising little bit. >> i got you. >> we will see you tomorrow. >> thank, hillary. now, one of our favorite photographers is a man by the name of jarrod. >> he's so great. makes appearances on the show, what, in jen's hit. >> and he dance as lot. >> but he's really kind after slip. >> what? >> mike? >> that's so wrong. >> well, he is not big into fashion. >> i guess that's a way to put

7:28 am
7:29 am
7:30 am
>> back to smyrna, probably an hour ago, we saw a lot of inmates on their stomach with their hands behind their back. looks like they moved all of those inmates, now, it just seems to be some of the officers there, lined up. >> yes, seems like they moved from one of the buildings to another. >> an i did get a tweet from somebody that works there. his name is reese. it is a prison, not a day care. every someone worried about inmate rights. what about victims rights and staff rights? he goes on to say.
7:31 am
i work there just two days ago, i work that build too long days ago, as usual, the media has it wrong. to elaborate, what are we getting wrong here? >> might be in response to the fact that we had professor on. that will was doctor heather thompson, who studied prison systems, what goes on there, and she says that even though they are inmates, still human beings, and we are seeing this, different prisons, you know, in the area, across the country, where they're saying they need to be treated better, better situations there. under staffed, over crowded. so could be what he's responding to. >> lited us know little more. 7:21. >> let's check on the weather now with sue. six more weeks. yes, to recap in case you missed moment ago, groundhog did see his shadow. six more weeks every winter. will keep bus stop buddy, we
7:32 am
had more sunshine, more than we saw yesterday already. but, it got to 50 degrees yesterday. we probably won't get that warm today. fools like 29 out there. high temperature, temperature, should be about 45 degrees, and comes probably between lunchtime and the evening rush hour. then after the sun goes down, plunging temperatures. >> if you are miss ago bumper head on back to the boulevard here. bumper to bumper traffic. because it is bumper on the northbound side, right near wissahickon, this is mom call, kind of watching, because some folks coming up and hitting the brakes trying to get over to the right side. like another accident wait to go happen. hopefully penndot crew out there, of course if you get to the office or get home tonight and missing your bumper there go call penndot. we will put it aside for you. south on 95, heavy cottman into downtown.
7:33 am
also, an accident on the lincoln drive. that's closed northbound. between gypsy and rittenhouse. early morning crash therefore the gang watching us in wilmington, an accident along route seven, right between route two and 95, that portion of the roadway closed. septa running with some delays this morning on the trenton regional rail line. so far so good from patco, and northbound on the northeast extension, the onramp to lansdale, the scene after crash. and south on 295, extra heavy into route 73, from earlier accident. mike and alex back over to you. >> thank you, so much, bob. two year old ella grace foster passed away from pneumonia in november, but yesterday her parent were charged in connection with her death. >> released on bail, jonathan and grace fox, back home this morning, with their six other children. charged with involuntary manslaughter, endangering the welfare of children, berks county district attorney john adams saidel a's death could have been prevented. >> our laws recognize you have duty to care for your child's
7:34 am
health, welfare, and we cannot justify a parent for not seeking healthcare for their children when their children are ill. >> the foster's don't believe in medical care or doctors. and that is because they're part of the none denominational fate tag err knack he will church as part of their fate, treatment against their religion, instead, they believe in faith-based healing and what happens is god's will. >> always good to see you. >> good to see you. >> morning. >> explain this church. is it a re lidge on? >> it is actually a denomination, got started here in philadelphia, been ran for over 100 years actually churr information nigeria. >> where are they here? >> mostly in pennsylvania, here, in town, and around in the pennsylvania avenue. so, big here.
7:35 am
>> so faith tabernacle church and they believe in whatever happens is god's will? >> don't believe you should go to the doctors, believe in devine healing, believe in praying god to heal your body. this is why parent don't take their children to the doctors. because that would be a sin to them. that's not what they believe. they believe that if they pray, and ask god to heal their illnesses, that they'll be healed. >> so would they even vaccinate them? >> no, nothing, nothing. >> do they have a tendency to live in the same area and go to the same church in. >> yep, they are all in the same church. it is a very closed echo system as i like to call it, very high boundaries. so they're not, you know, going to other people's churches. it is closed. a lot of families have been in there for years. >> the schools, would there be -- >> they go to school. they would go tireling already schools. but they would also have church base related -- >> but would there be other children in their schools. >> their schools?
7:36 am
no. >> then the par won't have to worry about well you didn't get vaccinated my kid is vaccinated. >> the thing is that this is use this as a term, held belief. the problem is when you have a belief and you have children, and they need to go to the doctors, then you all take them to the doctor, you run into trouble with child protective services, and all of these other things. and this is why this continues to happen. i mean, the first case of this, of a child dying, where they had to, you know, the legal things come in, and so this has been going on for long time. >> and normally get charged this. >> normally, yes. i mean, sometimes not. depends. but over the years several cases against them. >> but since they, you are saying, all live together in communities, i guess probably harder to -- >> nobody else in the community is going to call on your friend and say they're not taking their kid to the doctor because you don't believe that either. so hard to tell even if you are in a regular school how do you know? unless, you know, unless the
7:37 am
child gets too sick. then oftentimes it is too late. this is not just faith tabernacle. there are different denominations around the country, different individual churches that believe this. >> what are some of the other ones? >> other ones more like smaller kind of home group. but this all comes out of 19th century movement called the halinus movement. some of the groups out that far movement believe in devine healing basically. and that led to another, you know, casino every another level. >> but they new she had pneumonia? >> they new she was sick. they new she was really sick. but they are not taking her to the doctor. that's hard for people to understanded. but to take her to the doctor would be to to repute ate everything they believe. now, not to say i believe, that i'm saying this is what they believe. >> well, i just want to know more about what's going on. >> that's what it comes out of. and i think we don't notice this. philadelphia is a real interesting place where a lot of, you know, churches and denominations got their start here. and this particular one is an
7:38 am
off shoot of movement that was in illinois, john dowey movement. they got started here, 1895, 1896. so been around for a long time. >> doctor, thank you. >> thank you for coming in. >> wow. all right, just a little while ago, lets he is go back to delaware, we saw some inmates, there it is right, there being taken out of the vaughn correctional center in delaware. this was a little earlier, probably half hour ago. there is at least a hostage situation is over, we don't know, we have reporters on the scene trying to find out. ♪ oh, it's a good day... ♪ [car horns] [angry shouting] excuse me! [storm siren] when it comes to buying a house... trulia knows the house is only half of it. and with 34 map overlays like traffic, crime, natural hazards, and more...
7:39 am
you can find the right house and the right neighborhood for you. trulia. the house is only half of it.
7:40 am
7:41 am
>> 7:41, this is smyrna, delaware, now getting ready for hour 22, of the looks like from the different things activities, saying it may be over. still haven't had that confirmation yet. >> let's put up the footage of the prisoners being taken out into the re re rational yard, and placed face down on the basketball court outside of the prison. joining us on the phone now, police superintendent, in upper darby, our good friend,
7:42 am
michael chitwood. you've watched this. probably watching it life right now here on fox. , what's it look like to you, that maybe it is un control? >> had to come out of the facilities, and what happens is it will take each one, search them, and then, you know, slowly but surely remove them to where ever they're going to secure them. it is a tedious process, now, again, that's what it looks like, could these be just people that are released from inside, and no activity going on? we don't know just by the film. but the major thing, in any type of hostage rescue, is contained in negotiations. so obviously they're contained, not going anywhere. and certainly 22 hours later, obviously, negotiating. so i think that, in the end of
7:43 am
