7:05 am
had taken off and it wasn't here. two people on the motorcycle had to be transported with severe injuries to presbyterian hospital. at this hour not sure exactly what happened at this intersection that led up to the accident but two people were injured. there was debris scattered in the road, we arrived here we saw shoe, backpack, parts off motorcycle both were towed off here when the street was reopened. there are red lights cameras here at the intersection mike and alex so should shed light on about who is at fault and maybe they will get a look at what happened here in west philadelphia this morning. all right. got a clear though, traffic flowing again, behind lauren. a man is in the hospital after a car crashes into his home, it happened around midnight in the 4700 block of oakmont street, in holmesberg. police say man was inside of the basement when the car hit the windows, and he was transported to aid hospital,

7:07 am
the fire headquarters where the fire commissioner will talk about all this. later at 11:00 a.m. every firehouse in philadelphia still feels pain important losing 37 year-old joyce craig, a mother of two. after release yesterday of the national institute for occupational safety and health into the line of duty death of joyce craig and the last words that she was last heard uttering on tape i can't breathe, it turns out her air hose, the report said quote suffered catastrophic thermal degrade days, and they put never before seen pictures of that air hose pointing out a hole that was burned through it, and we know that she suffocate todd death because the oxygen wasn't going from the air tank to the mask. now we see why the big hole in her burnout hose. well, fire commissioner put out a written statement before he talks, to reporters today, and he said all of that bad equipment, that she and rest of the department was burned
7:08 am
with long before he got here by the way in charge, already has been upgraded and replaced the other problem, the point, the report made was the response time. her five mayday calls for help the report says seemed delayed quote. it turns out 21 minutes before the backup team, came and her initial team and fire fighters union president said last night on tv quote we deem this to be an unsafe environment to work in and that is all reaffirmed by this report. bad equipment and brown outs, closing firehouses, slowed the backup, nutter administration says it went hurt timing but it did and that is why fire commissioner tiehl not here when this occurred, same with jim kenney, son of the philadelphia fire fighter, changed that instantly when they took office, there is no more brown outs, no more shut firehouses and i can tell you this in just 11 short months on the job every fire fighter i talked to when i speak to them off record and here again

7:34 am
dump truck accident blocking 322 in williamstown. mass transit and airport looking good. 7:34. law enforcement in the country are out in force looking for a man who posted a murder on facebook. >> as you know by now on easter sunday a couple days ago police say 37 year-old steve stevey stephens attacked a 74 year-old man by the name of robert godwin. seemingly at random, random, on the street in cleveland, ohio. here's the video. >> hi. can you do me a favor? can you say joy lane? >> what? >> can you say joy lane. >> joy lane. >> yeah. she is reason why this is about to happen to you? >> remember that name, joy lane. this is why this is about to happen to you. police say, stephens that guy right there, fatally shot god win a retired father of nine who has 14 grandchildren and then posted the video on
7:35 am
facebook. >> then the search started. it started in cleveland but one point they said he could be in other states, in pennsylvania. and, yesterday it expand todd our area after several people reported sight goes of the 37 year-old caseworker. more than 30 local schools were put on lock down at one point but then we were told those calls were unfounded and they did not confirm that the suspect was in our area. but $50,000 reward is being offered for arrest of steve stephens because they still don't know where he is, this case is so disturbing as many of us asking how could someone do such a thing, what is in the mind of this man who has committed such a heinous crime and posted it on facebook for everyone to see. >> we may never necessity but here is forensic psychiatrist doctor gary glass, and first of all, give me your background. >> forensic psychiatrist and been doing this for 40 years. i've val waited probably 500 to 700 murderers, i have work with the fbi and state police
7:36 am
in investigation is let's get into this then. weak play more videotape, the top there, we said remember the name joy lane, apparently his ex-girl friend. after he killed this man he went on facebook live again and mentioned, the ex- girlfriend. >> the love of my life is joy lane. we have been together for three years. we were supposed to get married but just some things i could not deal with her anymore. >> so, he says he snaps and stuff like this. can a loss of a relationship, send new to this kind of grief and madness. >> yes, it can but there has got to be an underlying issue as well. nothing is singularly determined it is always multiple issues. we know we have learn he was a compulsive gambler. he had long gambling problem which we consider as an
7:37 am
impulse control disorder. so we know that there is, some deranged impulses. we know he was offended. when people are offended what do they do they try to recapture their strength. many years ago there was a comic strip called dadwin and the boss would yell, wow go home, kick the dog and punch the wall. we accept that. difference today we take that up a level. >> how does he get his power back by killing a 74 year-old man at random. >> because he does it on face book. he is now a celebrity, if you will. and he is increasing his strength by claiming that he has done it 15 times before, and he will do it again. we don't know if that is true. there does than the seem to be others out there but why would he do that? he is talking about his self image and his potency and his strength. >> what is significance of him
7:38 am
going up to mr. godwin and saying joy lane, is that just a message to her or he is trying to pretend that is her. >> first of all, it is an odd name, joy lane, which certainly join out to be not that friend. secondly, we can presume, and please understand that is just a presumption that he had enough, he was with it enough he didn't want to hurt her. he makes this man to be joy lane, if only for a moment which allows him to hurt her as proxy it seems like a message to her. this woman does exist and she's cooperating with police. you are right is there another layer he mentioned when he mentioned her name again in this one. >> you know, being with joy she drove me craze had, i lost everything, i lost everythng i had, man. i'm out of options. now i'm just on some murder
7:39 am
type. so what i'm going to do is, because she did this i will try to kill as many people as i can over here. >> doctor glass you mentioned he had a gambling problem. >> everything is her fault. >> yes, everything is her fault. she's responsible for his gambling problems. she's responsible for outcome. he implies but doesn't say it that she ended the relationship or forced him to end the relationship. so he takes responsibility for nothing. but very important thing to look at here is that here's a man who as you listen to him sound very clear, very coherent, he is not mad, he is not raving but he has the ability to do something very heinous and outrageous. >> he is very measured but word he is saying are outlandish. >> he did mention the fact that he snapped. i want your response to this people were coming to me with their problems.
7:40 am
i'm a case manager at beachwood. would i go to work every day. when it came to my problem nobody cares. i'm always the bad guy. >> i snapped, dog, i just snapped, dog, i just snapped. >> dawn just snap. >> yes. it is odd, sometimes it is faked as part of a defense but it also does happen. >> he says nobody listens to me. he goes on and on with that guy on the phone with him. i told you, you should have listened to you but nobody does. >> once again his problem was be in listens to him. he was running on empty. he was overdrawn. he is working as a counselor. presumably claims or feels he is giving his all to everybody else. he is empty. nobody gave back to him. more than likely doesn't ask for it, he won't accept it but that is what he is doing so this is his reaction. >> lets talk about mr. godwin the victim in this case.
7:41 am
we are learning so much about him. he have is a father, a grandfather, seemed like such a caring spirit. a lot of people hearts are going out to that family. >> for good reason. >> people are upset but yet you talk to the family they they forgive him. >> the family religion and belief, that is only way we can function sometimes. happen to good people and how else do you deal with it. >> they say that is lesson that he taught them all of his nine children, you know, very religious and you have to forgive him. they forgive him, in 24 hours. >> it is sometimes easier to forgive when there is in reasoning, no explanation, if somebody got hit by a drunk driver that may have been a little bit harder to forgive, somebody whose license, but more power to them if they can do it. >> thanks, doctor. >> people hold to their faith. >> we will continue up to date
7:42 am
you on this, search is still on for steve stephens. nationwide hunt. $50,000 reward for anybody leading to an arrest. vanessa: i got hurt and was given painkillers.
7:43 am

7:45 am

8:06 am
december 2014 but in a way she is likely still saving lives because by dying on duty that day from faulty equipment and response, those reasons blamed in this report has been change for the better, maybe why no more fire fighters have been killed ever since. pictures seen publicly for the first time show the burned through hose between her mask and her oxygen tank. the reason why her air supply was cut off, the reason why her last word were, i can't breathe. and the reason why they are suffocateing. and and the last may, put out a written statement about the national institutes of occupational and safety and health report known as niosh in the fire department, saying that he has made already upgrade to both the response times situation and has already changed all of that bad equipment for the better,

let's get to this study now that is causing a bit of confusion about mastectomies. >> study was done by researchers at stanford university and they found that half of the women who were told they have been cancer causing gene, in fact, only
8:17 am
had a so-called harmless gene variance, that is what they are calling it. researchers say doctors are misreading the data causing more women to get mastectomy whose don't really need them. >> let's bring in somebody who knows about this, doctor sin gares, chief of breast cancer surgery at jefferson hospital. good to see you doctor. >> good to be here. >> first of all give me your reaction to the study, half of all double mastectomies shouldn't have happened. >> two problems with the study one, it is a survey, it is not hard science and that means that people were questioned to their understanding of what their gene risk was and physician whose had relatively difference experience in dealing with breast cancer. that is part of the problem. two word that were a problem were unnecessary which you mentioned and other is harmless. >> unnecessary surgeries. >> unnecessary surgery and
8:18 am
harmless gene. the gene are variance of unknown significance, not harmless and unknown significance means we don't really necessity what the risk is that they conferred. >> can you say that in evening less. >> we know two genes, which clearly increases a woman's risk for developing breast canser that is something you would have gotten from your mom or grandfather. >> correct, hereditary gene. >> women who are testing because it is more accessible to women now, are finding out there is a whole slew of new genes because of our new techniques, that suggest there are genes that we just don't understand. they are not normal. because they stand out but we don't know what they are. >> they have always been there we are just discovering them. >> we are just discovering it, easy way of saying it, yes, sir. >> the thing is people being presented with this information they are saying, i would realitier get mastectomy because we could possibly find
8:19 am
out it is cancer. >> so mastectomies are on the increase that is absolutely true. it is probably from several things. one is that there is genetic tests now that has some element of confusion because of the problems. and number two is we are seeing technology, where for instance woman comes in and find out she has breast cancer in the right breast and then we do an mri or some of these more elaborate test and there could be something in your left breast. well, that just could be. and many women say that is it, i'm done. so the fact that technologically we are causing anxiety for our patients. third reason quite frankly is this isn't your grandmother's mastectomy anymore. we can make woman look better after their mastectomy with her nip he will sparing and skin sparing mastectomy and incredible plastic surgeons.
8:20 am
>> did you see we can make them, the breast look better then what they already had. >> correct. >> that is factored in. >> yes, there is a lot of tension causing the increased rise in mastectomy. it is not just genetic testing >> as we put out there angelina jolie when she had animals second my. >> i'm old enough to remember when nancy reagan and debbie ford said that, you know, they volunteered that they had breast cancer and rise in mammography went up. >> some woman comes to you and said my grandmother had breast cancer, my mother had breast cancer. i don't have it yet. what do you say. >> the message here is to say all woman hoff a question about their genetic risk should seek out, a center, where credentialed genetic counselors are integrated in the process. would i definitely have them
8:21 am
see one of our genetic counselors or private nurses you will not say. >> you have to go see them. it is important that they get counseling both before they decide about the test and after the test. number two, i ask my patients what are you going to get out of this information. it is like a blood test. don't order a blood test if you are not going to use the information. if you don't understand you why went there for that information. then i think, a third is to really under stan what the issues are before you make a final decision. it is in the my decision. >> information is power. >> absolutely. >> thank you, doctor. lets stay with the medical thing here what happened to prince. >> new information paints a picture of i man struggling with addiction, what we are learning about his final days, and what big questions are still unanswered. giving people options based on their budget is pretty edgy...

minimum wage for non-tip related work they were doing. >> i agree with them. >> do you. >> that is hard to track. >> as a former server, i work as a waitress too believe it or not, everybody knows who has worked in the service industry that there are some side work that usually goes along with your waitressing or waitering job. that is filling saltshakers, cleaning up, filling ketchup bottles, et cetera. that is understood in the industry that is part of your job. you are well compensated because even though you are paid under minimum wage for hours thaw are working with the tips, you are probably making more than someone who says maybe works at a fast food chain that doesn't get tips and just paid minimum wage. >> hold it. i have done this show a lot of years. too long. this is going to, seriously this will get a lot of response on twitter because lot of people who wait on tables, they get up about this
8:37 am
time of the day. do waiters, does wait staff really mob up? why don't they just serve people and that is it. >> and this case is going to turn on what is related to your service job verse is what unrelated. now plaintiff in this case says that she was doing 50 percent of her time doing unrelated work that was not related to her job as a waitress. therefore, during that time which was easily tracked she should be compensated at a minimum wage level, verse the time that she was actually earning tips. i think it is going to be a hard case for her to make. i really do. >> wouldn't you to have go to chiles and have them define duties of the waitress. just trying to argue to find the other side can they say you knew when were you hired these are responsibilities of the waitress and you agreed to do this job. >> that is right. that is what the restaurant is basically saying. these duties that they were doing are related to their job as servicer and this bass a expectation taking the job but the amount of money thaw are
8:38 am
making during your hours when you are serving customers is going to well compensation for those hours that perhaps you have to do some extra work. >> would you keep track of that one. >> i will keep track of that, absolutely and i will tell what you happened. >> that could change everything. >> darn right. >> yes, the whole restaurant industry. >> the baby back ribs. >> that is out back. >> out back, not applebees. >> out back. >> out back. >> thanks. >> that was random. >> do you like the bloomin onion. >> i just like saying it, i want a bloomin onion. plus it is cool, it comes out, it looks like a flower, it blooms. >> it is a bloomin onion. >> yes. >> do you want to know how to stop a fight before it starts because we are about to break out in fisticuffs here, new system to warn you if your partner is having a bad day, so if you don't want to get in
