3:00 am
we're going to bring you details about a horrible boating accident destroyed a family in the making. a groom left without his bride to be and his best man. now the driver of the boat facing criminal charges. we'll tell you why. and check this out. this is russian president vladimir putin. here he is kissing a giant fish and giving it a big old wet kiss. the controversy and debate this morning, is the kremlin lying about how big the fish truly is. >> the kiss isn't controversial. >> just the fish tale aspect of it. we'll get to all of that. first, devastating weather creating chaos in every corner of the country. at this moment, tropical storm flossie is bearing down on hawaii. further east, recovering from record shattering rainfall in philadelphia, while flash floods in carolina have turned deadly. adra petersons is tracking it all. >> look at all the rain in
3:01 am
philadelphia yesterday. that broke the all time record for rain in one day. and they weren't the only ones this weekend. slow moving thunderstorms drenched the nation from east to west with north carolina experiencing the worst of it. >> i can only see the top of the car, and i was like, oh, my god. >> surging floodwaters turned the streets into rivers, making cars and mailboxes barely visible. >> i have personally never been on anything quite this difficult before. >> a rain swollen creek claimed two lives, the current too strong for a 10-year-old girl and a 48-year-old man. >> the water is up, and it's dangerous. >> near hickory, firefighters had to rescue this woman by piggy-back, after rising waters left her car stranded. >> it was raining so hard. i did not see any of that. >> philadelphia international airport recorded nearly eight inches of rain in just six hours. that's a new all time record. in terminal "a," the strong storms caused the power to go out. that's not all. the torrential rain flooded the
3:02 am
interstates, leaving cars stranded, and traffic backed up for miles. out west, a similar story. in arizona, a tour bus leaving the grand canyon was overpowered by a flash flood. the bus flipped on its side and was swept 300 yards downstream. all 33 passengers managed to crawl out a window to safety. and the sun and blue skies in hawaii will soon be replaced with dangerous winds and heavy rain. tropical storm warnings and watches up as tropical storm flossie closes in. some parts of the island could get six to ten inches of rain. here's your update on flossie right now. very easy to see when you take a look. kind of weakening and kind of tearing apart as it enters an environment of shear or winds changing in height. currently 60 miles per hour. it's still a tropical storm fars as far as the timing of this and sped further to the south. looks like monday morning their time, it should make landfall. we're talking anywhere from 16
3:03 am
inches of rain where we're seeing the stronger winds. eventually will make its way to oahu. definitely a lot headed that way still. of course, we did have the remnants there of dorian. the good news, that is completely dissipated. 50% chance it's regenerated. if it does, it goes back into space. >> dorian is out, but flossie's going to leave a mess. indi indi indra, thanks very much. hope and fear across the middle east. the hope, peace talks set to take place between israeli and palestinian officials. the fear, the situation in egypt becoming more volatile as the military plans to clear out pro-morrisssi demonstrators fro cairo. christiane amanpour in london. reza is in cairo. first, the white house with brianna keilar. >> reporter: this is just the beginning with observers of the middle east conflict and
3:04 am
attempts at peace are more encouraged than they've been in years. that's because israeli leaders agreed to release 104 palestinian prisoners. these are people convicted of killing israelis, some of them, and prime minister benjamin netanyahu called it painful for the entire nation, but it's a sign of good will from israel. talks are expected to begin tonight in washington and last nine months. huge outstanding issues, though. israel is not thus far capitulating on palestinian demands that it stop building the new settlements in contested areas like the west bank. and also the borders used as a starting point for negotiations, they are still undecided. part of this cabinet vote allows any deal that's struck to go to a vote before israeli voters as well. chris and kate? >> brianna, thanks so much. much more to talk about on that later this morning. let's go to egypt right now where there was bloodshed overnight, really all over the
3:05 am
weekend. in the city of grapa one soldier was killed. over the weekend, more than 70 egyptians killed in cairo, most of them supporters of deposed president mohamed morsi. reza has been following this all in cairo. reza, what's the latest this morning? >> reporter: you get the sense here, kate, this conflict is getting closer and closer to a decisive stage. you have the muslim brotherhood and supporters of the ousted president on one side, the military backed interim government on the other. they've been in a dead like. what's different is the rhetoric, the threats, they're intensifying, the violence is increasing, more people are being killed, and what could be coming is more bloodshed. in egypt, fear and nervous anticipation is growing for a decisive crackdown on the supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi. for nearly a month, thousands of morsi backers have staged a
3:06 am
sit-in at an east cairo neighborhood. they won't leave, they say, until morsi is president again. at this point, chances of a comeback for morsi and his muslim brotherhood movement seems smaller than ever. morsi and aides are still in custody. several brotherhood leaders are wanted by authorities, and increasingly, morsi supporters are being killed. scores were shot to death on saturday when they clashed with security forces. st it the deadliest day in cairo since morsi was toppled from power on july 3rd. human rights groups have condemned what they call the government's excessive use of force, but the interior minister said it was pro-morsi protesters who attacked first. police never fired their weapons, he said. plenty of amateur video and pictures seemed to show otherwise. what's remarkable here is the lack of outrage and sympathy for some of the protesters who have been killed.
3:07 am
the growing violence is concerning washington. u.s. secretary of state john kerry over the weekend calling on both sides to scale down, but the concern is no one listening, and on sunday more signs that bloodshed could be coming. the military warning demonstrators to go home. otherwise risk decisive action. chris? >> the hope had been the military would calm things down. now seems to be going the opposite direction. that's the current concern. reza sayah, thank you very much for the reporting this morning. let's turn to cnn's chief international correspondent christiane amanpour, also the host of cnn international's "amanpour." she's in london, and one of the few to have spoken to all sides in this situation. christiane, you've spoken to the players. is there a real chance for progress in mideast peace talks. >> reporter: look, you can imagine there's so many naysayers, particularly because of the failed attempts in the past, but so many people do have hope that this time there may be
3:08 am
a small window of opportunity. now that the united states is now appearing to be fully committed, certainly, secretary of state john kerry has put his money where his mouth is. he's done many, many shuttle trips to the middle east, and he's really put this front and center of his agenda. it appears also that crucially he has the support of the white house because, without president obama's active backing and engagement, it won't really matter much. but apparently the white house is also prepared to back this to the hilt, and that's going to be incredibly important. i spoke to zippy livny, she is the israeli chief negotiator, she's coming or in washington already, and the meeting will be tonight, along with saud arakat, who is the palestinian chief negotiator. she says, listen, we have to get to final talks. it's in our best interests. the israelis know they must have a peace settlement somehow because otherwise the idea of a jewish state is compromised. the idea of a two-state solution, the longer it goes, is
3:09 am
compromised. palestinians need to make the bitter compromises that are necessary in order to have their long stalled state for themselves, and they want to do it as well. there are still outstanding issues, and these talks tonight are going to be talks about talks. this isn't the actual negotiation. this is the negotiation to see whether they can actually get down to starting those negotiations. >> the things that have been put on the table that hamas is threatening won't be dealt with, and that's why they're denying these talks in washington won't mean anything. release of prisoners to the plo are on the table. that's one thing. land and border concerns. do you believe they can get addressed even in washington, d.c., with these two parties? >> reporter: the thing is they have to, chris. prisoners are the easy thing. they always do a little bit of prisoner release before any of these meetings, and honestly, given the scale of the incredible difficulty, borders, jerusalem, and refugees, they've done the easy thing, but both leaderships have said they're going to put whatever deal they come to to a popular referendum.
3:10 am
to this day by a small majority at least, both israelis and palestinians, the ordinary people, still want a peace accord. you're right. hamas is out there governing a big part of the palestinian territory in gaza, and they don't want this. the clinton parameters, however, people know it's going to be based on 67 borders more or less with a give and take land swap. that has to happen according to the negotiations. then how to deal with all the palestinian refugees and the security issues. >> so we see the united states in two different positions here, a strong position holding these talks, both parties coming to see them in washington, that's good. on the egypt front, now a more dicey proposition for the united states, right? they were can baing the military. they won't call this a coup. they're still sending money, but it doesn't seem we're getting the transition expected. what do you think about that situation? >> reporter: well, i think it's incredibly dicey. without the united states, neither the israeli-palestinian is going to be resolved, and the
3:11 am
u.s. has a huge role to play in egypt as well. already secretary kerry, including the british foreign secretary and many, are calling on the military and interim leaders to pull back from the brink, to make sure there isn't this consistent violence, and to somehow get back to what they want, which is a national reconciliation and a return to civilian democracy. the more this killing goes on, the more this sense of us and them goes on is going to be very difficult to bring all sides of the egypt political equation together. >> christiane amanpour, thank you so much for the perspective from london. always great to have you on "new day." two terrifying bus crashes to tell you about this morning. one in indiana. a pastor and his wife dead. more on that one in a second. the second crash we want to tell you about is breaking overnight in italy. a bus plunges about 100 feet off a bridge, killing at least 38 people. senior international correspondent dan rivers is following the latest developments on this bus crash from london.
3:12 am
what are you hearing, dan? >> reporter: it's a horrific scene, kate, this morning. they're still trying to assess exactly what happened, exactly how many people died, but it looks like at least 38, as you said. these were catholic pilgrims on their way back from a shrine east of naples in the avellino provin province. the bus came over a hill, through a rail, and plunged # d ravine. they don't know why it happened. they're talking about possible tire failure, brake failure. it hit about 11 cars on the road before it fell off that bridge. they're still looking for the bodies. at least 38 dead. some 10 survived, but sadly, there are children among the fatalities. chris, kate? >> thanks so much. so one there in avellino, and we go to indianapolis, the sigh of another bus crash. investigators trying to narrow down what caused the driver of
3:13 am
this church bus to lose control just minutes from home. the pastor and his pregnant wife among the dead. >> the youth minister and their wife expecting their second child next month. it was a bus quite frankly packed with teenagers on its way home from a camp in michigan, then the unimaginable happened. now this entire community is in mourning. it was a terrifying scene, a bus toppled on its side. luggage and items from inside tossed about outside. the driver told witnesses the brakes gave out as he made a left turn. it toppled, landing atop a concrete barrier. they were just a mile from their destination. >> pretty tragic accident, as it typical, pretty quick response by a lot of people. some of the teenagers are hurting pretty badly, and you can see that in their faces. a lot of the adults in there are helping them even though they're shook up. >> reporter: on board, a church group, mainly teens and
3:14 am
children, returning from camp. pastor chad phelps and his wife courtney, both in their 20s, are among the dead. their 2-year-old son was injured but survived. the third victim, 34-year-old tanya weindorf, a mother of five. >> all of these folks were special to us as members here, our friends. our church is going to be going through tough days. >> reporter: as of sunday night, eight people were still in the hospital, and a community built on faith, now relying on it more than ever. >> our church grieves now. they're with god in heaven now, we know that without a doubt, but we grieve the fact they're not here with us. we miss them. >> a mile from home. there have been no criminal charges filed at this time. the investigation is under way to see if mechanical failure is to blame for that crash. it was loaded with teens. 40 people on that bus. 19 of them hurt. some of those teenagers still in the hospital. one is in critical condition. >> what is so scary to so many people, this bus ride from camp to home is something that kids and families and parents are
3:15 am
doing all over the country this summer. >> teens at church camp, almost home after a week in michigan, on the way to the church to be picked up by their parents. >> can't make sense of it. christine, thank you so much. a lot of news happening. a bus in trouble. >> good morning to you at home. a flight from cedar rapids, iowa, to st. petersburg, florida, making an emergency landing because an indicator light in the cockpit showing a fire on board. an faa spokeswoman says now there was no fire, and thankfully, no one was injured. we are learning that a child was among five people killed when a chopper went down in northeastern pennsylvania. that copter was reported missing saturday. it was found sunday in a remote wooded area. three men and one woman also died. the faa and the ntsb are now investigating what caused that crash. so much for the laid back
3:16 am
surfer lifestyle. things got totally out of control in huntington beach, california, last night, after the weeklong u.s. open of surfing competition wrapped up. riot police were called in. they used pepper balls to break up crowds in the street. crowds tipped over port-a-potties, looted local businesses. we're told there were at least eight arrests. and a defiant anthony weiner says he's staying in new york city's mayoral race. he's going to have to find a new campaign manager. he quit over the weekend. weiner has been under pressure since the public learned his sexting habit continued even after he resigned from congress. pga tour golfer hunter mahan is a new father. his wife went into labor as he was about to begin the fourth round of the canadian open with a two-stroke lead. that win would have been worth # million.
3:17 am
but mahan walked off the course and flew to dallas to be with his wife and at her side. we're proud to report zoey alivia mahan was born early sunday morning. she and her mom are doing just fine. well, dad won't mention that to her when she misbehaves. listen, little one, i bypassed $1 million to be here. >> i'm sure it was not even a close call for him. >> congratulations. >> love that name, zoey olivia. beautiful name. coming up next on "new day," a bride to be and best man killed in a horrifying boat accident in new york. now police are filing criminal charges. a live report ahead. and then some good news. cleveland kidnapping victim amanda berry stunning a huge concert crowd by showing up at the stage. real thrill for everybody, especially her. we'll tell you about it. let's play:

3:22 am
accident reconstruction team. >> reporter: authorities say the driver of the boat, also a friend of the couple, was intoxicated, charged with vehicular manslaughter and vehicle assault. investigators are also looking into claims the barge that the boat hit did not have proper lighting. >> you put in a movable object that's dark in the path of recreational boaters, you have a recipe for disaster. >> reporter: lindsey stewart and brian vaughn were planning to marry on august 10th. they decided to take a boat ride friday night up the hudson river. the small power boat carrying six people hit a construction barge on the bridge. 30-year-old stewart and best man chris lennon were killed. >> his heart was bigger than mine. he was my rock. >> reporter: bond, the groom, and four others, including the boat's driver, suffered serious

delivering mail, medicine and packages, yet they're closing thousands of offices, slashing service and want to layoff over 100,000 workers. the postal service is recording financial losses, but not for reasons you might think. the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it.

3:34 am
3:35 am
let's get back to political gut check. first up, mideast peace talks resume in washington. what are the chances of success? let's get to brianna, our cnn white house correspondent. brianna, talk about a tough task
3:36 am
for secretary of state john kerry with very little certainty of success. what's different this time around? at least what's the administration saying is different this time around? >> reporter: when you look at what israel has agreed to, which is releasing these 104 palestinian prisoners, i think the administration looks at that as a tremendous move by israel because you have a lot of these palestinians who are convicteded of actually murdering israelis. they are considered by israelis to be murderers, and they're considered to be freedom fighters by palestinians. this is something that certainly netanyahu has said is very painful. this is something that's a concrete step, but anyone who's done anything on mideast peace looks and realizes that this is one, even though significant, small step towards any resolution. there's still so much to work out. i think that a lot of natural inclination from anyone who's
3:37 am
dealt with this, kate, is to kind of be a little pessimistic even though they're hopeful. >> cynical for sure. what are you hearing about the timing of the talks coming back up? obviously, secretary kerry and the white house has very immediate, pressing foreign policy issues facing them right now, the violence in egypt over the weekend, as well as obviously the continued bloodshed in syria. >> reporter: that's right. we're expecting this is a process that will take nine months. so you obviously have some time there, but huge issues to be resolved. you heard about the prisoners, but two of the big issues still to be resolved have to do with israel still refusing to stop those settlements in contested areas like the west bank, and then also this issue of where do you start when you start talking about where your borders are going to be. what is the starting point for that huge outstanding issue as well, kate. >> talking about domestic politics, the president sat down with "the new york times" for a pretty lengthy interview. one of the things he said -- he said a lot, but one of the
3:38 am
things he said is he's not going to sit around and twiddle his thumbs for the next # 00 da1,20 if the only message he gets is no. what does he mean by that? >> reporter: he views that congressional republicans have been constructionist. he's not going to sit around and do nothing. the white house strategy has been, and i think continues to be, that they're going to do things that they don't need congress' approval on. they've had some successes. most recently, we talked about that student loan deal a whole lot that was brokered, obviously resolved not to everyone's liking, but it was nonetheless resolved between the white house and congress. this is the white house saying on some things we're going to find work-arounds. if we don't agree on climate change, we'll do our own thing. >> shaping up for 2016, abortion rights seem to be becoming a hot button issue politically. you've got members on the right
3:39 am
saying this is a big part of the platform. let's try to restrict rights, reproductive rights in the senate. what are the politics at play? >> reporter: the politics at play are that social issues are huge motivators for voters, and what you've seen recently is a lot of republicans who on one of those issues, same-sex marriage, have gotten on board. it's kind of taken the sort of -- it sort of, i guess, defused that as what republicans can really use. it's not in their political arsenal so much. so it really comes down to abortion. what they're trying to do here is this is a bill being discussed in the senate that would say at 20 weeks -- you're looking at close to five months here. at 20 weeks you wouldn't be able to get an abortion. and a majority of americans support late-term abortion ban. this is the way they can use the politics of abortion. we're talking marco rubio, who's looking at signing on to lead this. talk about the politics not just of abortion in general, but of late-term abortion, which a lot of americans are opposed to.
3:40 am
>> brianna, thanks so much. >> it always fascinates me how politicians want to talk about reproductive rights without ever bli bringing in science. we kind of set it aside and talk about the timing anyway. >> it likely will not pass in the senate because it's democratically controlled, and if it does, the president will veto it. moving on now, how about this one? has all the makings of a film noir classic. i do don't know what that means, but i do know this. a daring jewel heist in broad daylight. a thief walking away with $53 million in jewels from a swanky hotel on the french riviera. erin mccann is live with the details. tell me about it, erin. you look good. >> reporter: the ritz carlton is considered the place to stay in cannes. known for its glitz and glamour, it's where you'll find all the stars from the cannes film
3:41 am
festival. you can imagine the shock and surprise when a man armed with a gun was able to enter the hotel and steal millions of dollars in jewelry. it's a story straight out of a hitchcock film. >> filmed on the beautiful french riviera. >> reporter: one man walks into a hotel in cannes, france, and walks out with $53 million in diamond jewelry. >> diamonds, the only thing in the world you can't resist. >> reporter: the carlton hotel, the setting for the iconic movie "to catch a thief," was the site of one of europe's biggest jewelry heists saturday morning. >> there was a gun, and there was nobody around. they gave him $40 million worth of jewelry. it's just incredible. >> reporter: police say a robber whose face was covered by a hat and starve threatened to shoot visitors and guests during the hold-up. cannes, the home of the international film festival, is known for its glitz and glamour. lately it's become a magnet for
3:42 am
jewelry theft. in may, a $2.6 million necklace was taken from a hotel party. later that same month, over $1 million worth of jewels were stolen from a safe in the novatel hotel. this latest heist comes two days after a member of the notorious pink panther jewel thief gang escaped from a swiss prison. however, it's too soon to say if there's any link to this incident. authorities this morning are looking for surveillance footage of the crime. >> diamonds are like cash. they're the most concentrated form of wealth on the face of the earth. so they can be very influential in acquiring weapons, in acquiring drugs, or anything else that we want to keep out of society. >> reporter: thankfully, no one was hurt in yesterday's heist, not a single shot was fired, and this morning more questions than answers as to how this could have happened, why there wasn't
3:43 am
more security. officials this morning have no new information to add. kate? >> erin, thanks so much. let's go around the world, starting in spain this morning. the driver in that deadly train derailment now charged with 79 counts of negligent homicide. cnn's karl penhaul has more from spain. >> reporter: we're outside santiago de compostela cathedral. tonight there will be a memorial mass held here for the 79 people who were killed. a death toll that includes two americans. in other developments, a judge has now formally charged the train driver with 79 counts of reckless homicide, but he is also granted unconditional release until investigations are concluded. back to you, kate. >> karl, thanks so much. now to benghazi, libya, which is being rocked by

protests and explosions following the escape of 1,100 inmates in a prison riot. >> reporter: it most certainly sounds like a dramatic escape that left 1,200 inmates on the loose. some people are saying that it was residents just outside of the prison that's located on the outskirts of the eastern libyan city of benghazi that facilitated the escape. others are saying it was actually clashes that broke out inside. either way, authorities have not been able to rein the situation back under their control, only managing to recapture 18 of them. this comes after benghazi itself has seen a series of political assassinations, and then also over the weekend, bombings that took place in the city itself. none of this, of course, boding well for libya, a nation already on the edge. kate? >> arwa, thanks so much. to russia, russian president vladimir putin's fishing trip is getting a lot of attention online over quite a big catch.
3:45 am
just how big was it is the question. cnn's phil black is live in moscow. >> reporter: video of vladimir putin's summer vacation in siberia shows him catching and kissing an impressive pike. many saying it weighed 45 pounds. russians say no way, estimating the weight at half that. and russian bloggers believe the video is really from 2007 because they think he's wearing the same clothes he was seen in back then. not true, says the president's spokesman, insisting it was a new fishing outfit. back to you, kate. >> so 45 pounds, do you think it was 45 pounds? >> the outrage is that he wore the same outfit of the that's just unforgivable. >> i have a horrible fishing outfit. i would wear the same. >> you have to. different fields, different temperatures, contrast of the water. >> you learn something new every day, everybody. >> any fish can be any weight. it all depends how much weight you put inside the fish. could be 45 pounds. didn't look 45 pounds to me. that's all i'm going to say. i don't want to create
3:46 am
international tension. >> more than it is already existing there. coming up next on "newiots beach, california, right after the u.s. open of surfing. what caused the violence? we'll find out. >> not fighting over the weight of vladimir putin's fish, by the way. check this out. the moment of the day. two huge horses, one huge guy, and a parachute, and there's a woman caught in the middle. what is going on? >> just something. >> that's a must see moment there. la's known definitely for its traffic, congestion, for it's smog. but there are a lot of people that do ride the bus. and now that the busses are running on natural gas, they don't throw out as much pollution to the earth. so i feel good. i feel like i'm doing my part to help out the environment.

3:53 am
the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it.

4:03 am
for miles. out west, a similar story. in arizona, a tour bus leaving the grand canyon was overpowered by a flash flood. the bus flipped on its side and was swept 300 yards downstream. all 33 passengers managed to crawl out a window to safety. and the sun and blue skies in hawaii will soon be replaced with dangerous winds and heavy rain. tropical storm warnings and watches up as tropical storm flossie closes in. some parts of the islands could get six to ten inches of rain. now we're taking our latest look at flossie right now. you can actually see how much is torn apart by colder waters and wind shear or different winds at different height. it is weakening. that's the upside. 50 mile per hour winds makes it a tropical storm. what we are expecting is it's a new path, a little farther to the south. and it's moving faster at 17 miles per hour. it actually brings it about 7:00 hawaiian time looking for land

4:05 am
crews that turn up there. 38 now confirmed dead. you can see just a mangled wreckage of what's left of that bus. among the casualties, sadly, several children. we still haven't got final figures on that. about ten people survived. we still don't know exactly what happened. they're investigating possible brake failure. it hit a number of cars before it fell off that bridge. it may have been a tire blowout as well. chris? >> thank you very much, dan. we go from one group of church folks in avellino, italy, to another in indianapolis. investigators trying to figure out what caused a church bus to crash over the weekend. three people killed, including a youth pastor and his wife. christine romans with the latest. >> that youth pastor and his wife expecting a baby next month. their 2-year-old survived. this bus was filled with mainly teenagers returning home from church camp. we're hearing from church members as they grieve for those
4:06 am
who are lost and praying for those still recovering. it was a terrifying scene. a bus toppled on its side, luggage and items from inside tossed about outside. the driver told witnesses the brakes gave out as he made a left turn. it toppled, landing atop a concrete barrier. they were just a mile from their destination. pretty tragic accident, as is typical, pretty quick response by a lot of people. some of the teenagers are hurting pretty badly, and you could see that in their faces. a lot of the adults in there are helping them even though they're shook up. >> reporter: on board, a church group, mainly teens and children, return frg a week at camp. youth pastor chad phelps and his pregnant wife courtney, both in their 20s, were among the dead. their 2-year-old son was injured but survived. the third victim, 51-year-old tanya weindorf, a mother of five. >> all these folks were special to us as members here, as friends. our family here at the church is

going to be going through tough days. >> reporter: as of sunday night, eight people were still in the hospital, and a community built on faith now relying on it more than ever. >> our church grieves now. they're with god in heaven right now, and we know that without a doubt. we grieve the fact they're not here with us. we miss them. >> reporter: 40 people on board that bus. 19 of them injured. there are some still with very, very serious injuries. we wish them the best. >> it's impossible to make sense of that. all right, christine. thanks so much. some news over the weekend overnight in california. at least eight arrests reported when fans at a surfing competition started rioting in the streets. you're looking at it right there. a mob tossed rocks and bottles at officers, overturned portable toilets, looted businesses. this all followed the end of the vans u.s. open of surfing in huntington beach, california. cnn's stephanie elam is live in los angeles with more. stephanie, this is not the kind of event that people would expect rioting after.
4:08 am
>> that is true. good morning, kate, chris, and michaela. when you take a look at this video, you can see property totally get damaged. no injuries, but you can't say that for anything else on the streets of huntington beach. complete chaos and near anarchy. as the u.s. open of surfing, a skate and surf event held in huntington beach, california, turned into madness. after a large crowd gathered at the conclusion of the competition began rampaging through the streets of the mellow beach town fighting, tipping port-a-potties. >> it started with like a fight, and it just broke out. they were tipping port-a-potties, and the cops started to move in, and they were throwing tear gas at everyone. people were plugging their noses and coughing, and everyone was running down main street. >> reporter: damaging public property. >> all i'm trying to do is enjoy my night that i paid good money for. >> reporter: the huntington beach police joined by

responders from all over orange county were forced to shoot pepper balls at the rioters. roaming the streets, attempting to quell the disturbances all around them. this morning, after eight arrests and a long evening of battling the chaotic crowds, police finally regained control, restoring some order to the palm tree lined streets. now, police were able to get control of the streets by midnight east coast time. one thing you may have seen there were a lot of cell phones out, and now police are looking to see if anyone was recording anything that could show somebody who was acting inappropriately. chris and kate? >> stephanie, thanks so much. >> amazing how it just got out of control there. took all those police to get it back under control. luckily they were there and took care of all of it. another story we're following this morning that has very high expectations are these peace talks that are going to take place here in the u.s., but between israel and palestine. >> high expectations, a lot of
4:10 am
hope, to be sure. >> good morning to you at home. tonight israelis and palestinians set to hold their first substantive peace talks in years. the talks expected to set up the framework for full negotiations later. israel agreed to release more than 100 palestinian prisoners before tonight's meeting. the prisoner release was a major roadblock to the talks. new developments in the spanish train wreck. the driver of the train has been charged with 79 counts of negligent homicide. authorities focused on whether he was driving too fast when the train derails. the victims will be memorialized tonight at a cathedral not far from where they died. one of the victims, a 58-year-old american woman, died on sunday. five people, including a child, have been killed in a pennsylvania helicopter crash. authorities believe the chopper went down on saturday. an alert was issued after it lost radar and communication contact. the wreckage wasn't found until sunday in wyoming county. it's unclear whether weather played a role. there were some severe thunderstorms in the area. a preliminary hearing today

4:12 am
athletic things. we remember how much pain the president is in, horrible back injuries. always showing what he would do to be with his family. great video. thanks for that. a second body has been found in the hudson river after a prewedding celebration turned deadly. a speed boat slammed into a construction barge north of new york city, throwing the best man and bride to be in the river. the man who was driving the boat is in critical condition. he is also under arrest. cnn's alina cho is live in piermont, new york, with the latest. good morning, alina. >> reporter: chris, good morning to you. this was meant to be a celebratory cruise on the water, a bride, a groom, and their friends just two weeks before their wedding. not long after leaving a marina friday night, this boat ride quickly turned fatal. the investigation into friday's horrific boat accident that killed a bride to be and best man will now focus on a timeline, what happened and when. >> what we're going to do is we're going to bring in an accident reconstruction team.

in two major cities, politicians behaving badly. bob filner, mayor of san diego, refusing to seek counseling despite sexual harassment allegations. and in new york, mayoral candidate anthony weiner refusing to drop out of the campaign. first, dana bash with the latest on the weiner sexting scandal. good morning, dana. >> reporter: good morning. generally when politicians, members of their own party are trying to push them to resign or pull out of the race, they try to be diplomatic, but not with anthony weiner. prominent democrats call his candidacy absurd, and even worse, never mind weiner's own campaign aide is quitting in disgust. it's never a good day when the divide running your campaign runs for the door. >> danny left the campaign. he did a remarkable job. we have an excellent staff. >> reporter: anthony weiner's campaign manager quit, but in a new interview with the staten island advance, he insists he's not going anywhere.
4:20 am
>> there's no new facts here is the point. this conversation has now moved on. >> reporter: he spoke out about the beating his wife huma is taking in the new york tabloids. she's the victim here. the things i did, i did to her. she's the one that's uniquely in a position to say, this was done to me. so it hurts to see her ridiculed like this. but most ridicule is aimed squarely at weiner, and it's harsh. president obama's former campaign guru. >> i think that he is delusional at this point and doesn't understand the situation. he's not going to be mayor of new york. he should go away. >> reporter: to former colleagues. >> it's a real pathological problem here with him. how he could be out here knowing all this information was going to come out. >> reporter: the front-runner in the race for new york mayor called him unqualified. >> when you see scandal after scandal like this, what it does is create even more distrust and maybe even disgust in government. >> reporter: the new yorker, famous for provocative covers,
4:21 am
couldn't resist this weiner image, straddling the empire state building like king kong with a media frenzy around him. now, i talked to several democratic strategists who want weiner out and are hoping at some point his campaign cash gets so low he won't be able to pay remaining staff and even keep the lights on. remember weiner started this mayoral race with $4 million in the bank leftover from his congressional campaign. it makes it a lot easier for him to say. yesterday he said, quote, you're stuck with me. >> dana, thanks so much. joining us to talk more about this is cnn political commentator and republican strategist extraordinaire ana navarro. >> and friend of kate bolduan and chris cuomo and here for the first time. >> exactly. your favorite topic, anthony weiner. campaign manager drops out. he says he's sticking in it and not dropping out. how big of a hit is this for him, or do the hits just keep coming, do you think? >> it's less of a hit than having pictures of his privates all over the internet.
4:22 am
so to be comparative. >> it's all relative, i guess. >> i think it's one thing after the other. what's not good is it's drip, drip, drip -- actually, deluge, deluge, deluge. you've got democrats all over the country telling him to drop out, the campaign manager quitting, sydney laethers freat the sexting scandal giving interviews everywhere, her boyfriend giving interviews. so he says he's past it, and i think he's very wrong. >> yesterday you heard christine quinn, the front-runner, say this clearly doesn't qualify him for mayor. she has a bid in that as she wants to be mayor as well. she stopped short of telling him to get out of the race. why? >> she shouldn't. it's not her place to tell an opponent to get out, and everybody else is telling him to get out. everybody is saying to anthony
4:23 am
weiner, withdraw. from the race, that is. and she doesn't need to do that. >> different situation but same kind of pressure building for someone to get out of the way. this would be san diego mayor bob filner. he's resisting any push to resign even though it seems everyone is telling him you cannot be effective at this point. you need to get out of this. what's your take on this situation? >> it's freak and freakier with these two guys. they just don't know what to do with them. it's got to be a very frustrating things for democrat who last cycle we saw them label republicans as waging a war on women for what akin and murdoch said. in these guys, you've got people doing things, not just saying. so it kind of puts a kink in the democrat armor of the entire women narrative. >> can republicans capitalize on this, or is this risky political territory? >> i think the best thing to do,
4:24 am
if it you're a republican, just sit down and watch the show. get some popcorn and a soda because it's fairly entertaining. this is p haing to them now. we've had to deal with our own issues, now you've got spitzer and weiner and mayor feeler, as i like to call him. they have to deal with all of this. comedy writers and republicans should just let this happen. >> yes. and we all know, of course, you're a republican strategist. these are democratic candidates, or democratic mayor and a democratic candidate. >> it is a lot more fun when it's happening to democrats than to republicans. >> i would say so. how do they regain the public's confidence? anthony weiner says he still can be an effective mayor, and bob filner says he still can be an effective mayor. >> kate, i don't think they regain the public confidence. anthony weiner seems to be determined to stay in this. he's got 40 more days to go. it's not unlikely that more revelations come out. the guy's got more sexting partners than most men have pairs of shoes.

4:33 am
shocking story. a university of pittsburgh research professor faces an extradition hearing in west virginia today. he is wanted for homicide charges in pennsylvania for allegedly killing his wife with a lethal dose of cyanide back in april. john berman has been following this story. >> what a bizarre case, kate. you have a nationwide man hunt, two high profile doctors in the medical research community, and allegedly you have cyanide. all that, and tragically you now have a 6-year-old girl with a dead mother and a father in custody. dr. robert ferrante is expected to waive extradition and be transported back to pennsylvania where he faces criminal homicide charges. his arrest in west virginia on thursday ending a nationwide manhunt. >> he was relatively quiet. he knew there were warrants for him, said he was en route back to pittsburgh.
4:34 am
>> he has to defend himself, have his day in court, and prove his innocence. >> reporter: robert ferrante is accused of poisoning his wife, dr. autumn klein, with cyanide in april. dr. klein, seen here in an interview on the discovery channel, was the chief of women's neurology at the university of pittsburgh medical center. police investigators scoured the couple's home, collecting evidence there and at the university lab, where ferrante worked. a three-month investigation led to this criminal complaint against 64-year-old ferrante, documenting an alleged text conversation with his wife, urging her to go on a creatine regimen to help with fertility, that prosecutors believe he laced with cyanide. they also document ferrante placing an order for an overnight delivery of cyanide two days before his wife collapsed. >> the amazing amount of subpoenas and investigation that
4:35 am
went into determining, in fact, it was a homicide, that's what took so long. >> reporter: klein leaves behind their 6-year-old daughter, her death sending shock waves throughout the community. >> we were stunned. i mean, she was young. she was vibrant. she has a young daughter. we were just stunned. >> reporter: ferrante's attorney tells cnn affiliate kdak that he is devastated by his wife's death, that he's innocent, and he will fight the charges. >> joining us, paul callin, cnn legal analyst who's worked as a prosecutor and a defender. he has a very nice tie and pocket square combination on today. thank you for joining "new day." this is no slam dunk case, right? even though it's very mysterious to hear it, what is the best chance of proving that this is the man who did it, it wasn't a suicide, it was a death by cyanide. >> there are no slam dunks in circumstantial evidence homicide cases. i think he's going to put up two possible approaches here.
4:36 am
one, he had a legitimate reason to have cyanide. he's a brilliant university researcher, pharmaceutical industry uses it, it's used in industry. maybe he'll come up with the excuse he ordered a half pound of suicide two days before his wife's death. >> the amount matters. he can say, why would i buy so much on my own credit card? >> that's right. he put it on a university credit card. if he's this bright, would he be planning to kill his wife in such an obvious way? he may be able to say this is an accidental death in that i was mixing an energy supplement and somehow i mixed in the cyanide. the second issue that has been raised is suicide by her, but i'm telling you, that one's a rough one. i'm reading about the cyanide screen, convulsions, a bloody froth before you die. if it you're going to kill yourself, that's not the way to do it. >> there are a couple of other turns here. one, you have no body. the victim here was cremated very quickly. what does that mean? and text messages about creatine
4:37 am
and how to get pregnant. tell us about the intrigue here. >> very, very interesting background. ferrante, the defendant in the case, 61 years old, the victim 41 years old, 6-year-old child, and supposedly they were trying to get pregnant. he was suggesting that she should use creatine to help with the pregnancy. now, anybody, nutritionists, scientists, will tell you creatine has nothing whatever to do with pregnancy. >> it's a protein recovery supplement for weight lifters. >> weight lifters take it. you can buy it in any supplement place, but you don't take it to get pregnant. nonetheless, she was taking this drug, and he was mixing the drug for her. that's a very, very bizarre aspect of the case. on the other hand, law enforcement authorities mentioned there may have been an affair with the 41-year-old, and that could have supplied a motive for ferrante to want to kill his young wife. >> no body because the cremation. what does that mean here? >> this is really bizarre because here you have a death under very suspicious circumstances, cyanide death of
4:38 am
a prominent, brilliant physician, and she's cremated at the husband's request shortly after the death. first of all, i don't know how law enforcement authorities allowed the cremation to occur so quickly, but i suppose they decided it's definitive. it's cyanide poisoning, so there's no need for a further autopsy. >> you said early on, this is a largely circumstantial case, no direct witnesses who saw it happen, no forensic evidence to put somebody in a position of having murdered her. so for all the confidence in the case, how tough is this going to be? >> these cases are always difficult, but i will say, even with circumstantial evidence cases, prosecutors will sometimes tell you they're very strong cases because, when the evidence, when the clues all lead in one direction, homicide, and you're not worrying about eye witness testimony being unreliable, a lot of times a very strong circumstantial case can be put together, and we have to go back to, hey, would she have killed herself with cyanide, a? and, b, he's the only one who
4:39 am
gets access to cyanide. so those are two very, very big points in favor of the prosecutors. >> on his side, the big question right now would be why would i kill my wife? they're going to have to figure that out. >> it's called love makes you crazy, and i happen to see that in so many homicide cases where the motive is this, comes out of an affair. >> paul callan, thank you very much. appreciate it. coming up next on "new day," they call is a medical miracle, a 6-year-old who survived being buried under an avalanche of sand for hours. we'll hear from his parents about his road to recovery. also, actor or jason patric playing a very different role these days. he does not like to do interviews, but he's doing this one because he's stuck in a custody battle that could rewrite the rules of parental rights. american express credit card, every purchase earns you 2% cash back,

because oftentimes those stories don't end like that. >> oftentimes. i don't know of another story that you have a kid that you don't know there's a reason they have oxygen. they get trapped in wells and mines. >> there's no reason he'd have oxygen. >> what i hear from some of my buddies who do first responder work, rescue work, they love this story because it puts into their mind an expectation of what's possible. if they save that kid in that situation, it gives them incentive to go that much harder every time. >> we can say he was 11 feet under sand, but when you see the video of how far they had to dig down to get him out. >> it was a backhoe digging him out. amazing he's doing okay. what a great, great story. coming up next on "new day," we're going to show you troubling amateur video this morning that some say shows a stranded pilot whale desperately trying to get back into a pool at sea world while trainers stand by and do nothing, sparking some controversy. we'll talk about it. and then from a real life marine crisis to a surreal one. one of the stars of sharknado,

5:05 am
it is new for a pope to be talking in the frank terms in these issues. if you look at the substance maybe what he is saying, on women he is saying women should have a more prominent role in the church, but he's saying no to the idea of ordaining women as priests. so, in other words, straight down the line, straight down the line roman catholic teaching. no change there. on gays, same kind of thing. again, an issue of style. if he's saying somebody is gay, who am i to judge him. the problem is, if you look at the substance particularly of some of the comments he made following that up, the problem is not having this orientation being gay, said the pope, we must be brothers. the problem is lobbying by disorr disorrinitation and this is the worst problem. i think a lot of gay people are going to have a problem with this, but it feels as if they're being told do not lobby for yourselves. you're not being judged, just
5:06 am
leave it to us to do something about you, to give you a fair share. that really doesn't seem to me to be what many gays are wanting. so, i'd say, maybe they're not so much new here, chris and kate. >> charles, appreciate the report. change only comes about through dialogue. the fact that the pope is addressing this at all means something. here's another big first step fear mixed with a glimmer of hope in the middle east this morning. the fear in egypt escalating violence after more than 70 people were killed over the weekend in cairo with clashes the hope stemming from news that israelis and palestinians have agreed to begin peace talks tonight. brianna keilar live at the white house and reza syah. a big first step could be tonight, brianna. >> a big first step, this is, i will say, just the beginning. as far as the obama
5:07 am
administration is concerned and observers of the peace process attempts and failures, they feel more encouraged than they have in years at this point. that's because israeli leaders agreed to release 104 palestinian prisoners. some of whom were convicted of killing israelis. we heard from prime minister netanyahu he called it painful for the entire nation but this is a key demand of palestinians. it is seen as a sign of good will, certainly from israel. secretary of state john kerry shepherding this process set to begin tonight here in washington. it's expected to last nine months. huge outstanding issues here, still, just to point out. that includes that israel has not agreed, as palestinians want them to, to stop building settlements in contested areas like the west bank. also the issue of where you start when you're talking about borders. what is the starting point. that is also not agreed to. in this cabinet vote, kate and chris, you had prime minister

netanyahu basically whatever deal, whatever deal is struck will be put up for a vote. so, israelis ultimately will decide and that could be an obstacle, as well. >> all right, brianna, we'll talk more about this in coming days. >> like you said, the first step. >> there has to be one. >> certainly puts that process ahead of what's going on in egypt. even more bloodshed overnight. clashes between the military and mohammad morsi keeps escalating. reza is live in cairo. what have you got? >> chris, you get the sense here in egypt that this conflict is itching closer and closer to a very dangerous stage. on one side you have the military backed interim government and supporters of the ousted president mohammad morsi. they have been in a deadlock for more than a month now. now what is different is the rhetoric, the threat. the violence is increasing, more than 70 killed over the weekend and the big concern is, there's
5:09 am
all kinds of signs that more bloodshed could be coming. in egypt fear and nervous education is forming for a crackdown against supporters of the ousted mohammad morsi. for nearly a month thousands of backers have staged a sit-in in an east cairo neighborhood. they won't leave until morsi is president, again. at this point chances for a comeback for morsi seem smaller than ever. morsi and several aides are still in custody. several brotherhood leaders are wanted by authorities and increasing more morsi leaders are being killed. scores were shot to death on saturday when they clashed with security forces. it was the deadliest day in cairo since morsi was toppled for power on july 3rd. human rights groups have condemned what they call the use
5:10 am
of force, but the interior ministry said it was pro-morsi sources that attacked first. plenty of amateur video and pictures seem to show otherwise. it's critical to point out that the overwhelming number of the victims here seem to be supporters and there is growing evidence that they were killed by security forces and what's remarkable is the lack of outrage and even sympathy from authorities here. it's this growing violence that has washington concerned. secretary of state john kerry over the weekend calling on both sides to scale down, but the concern, chris and kate, is neither side seems to be listening at this point. >> well, certainly not getting better. reza, thank you for the report this morning. let's bring it back home. we're dealing with two really tough tragedies here. bus accidents, michaela. >> two of them. we'll start with the horrific one in italy, first of all. really an awful situation in
5:11 am
southern italy. the death tol now standing at 38 after a bus struck 11 cars and went off a bridge east of naples. they fear more bodies could be found in the wreckage. here in the u.s. a pastor and his pregnant wife both killed when their bus over turned. they were bringing back teenagers from camp. violent mob brawling in the streets vandalizing businesses and throwing rocks and bottles at police last night. it's believed a fist fight between two people set off that violence. we're learning a child was among five people killed when a chopper went down in northeastern pennsylvania. that helicopter was reported missing saturday and it wasn't found until sunday in a remote wooded area. three men and one woman also died. the faa and ntsb are investigating what caused that crash. anthony weiner won't kit, but his campaign manager just
5:12 am
did. he is staying in the race despite the departure. calls are growing louder for weiner to bow out. fans gathered of "my little pony" they call themselves bronbron bronies. close to 300 fans, some as far away from hawaii and australia were on hand for the fest. these die-hard fans say "my little pony" is not just for kids, oh, no. there you go. >> everybody has a thing. >> i might have to dig through the toy chest there. i feel like i bought a few dozen of those things. >> they're big. >> make a little money off those little ponies. >> that's what you're thinking. back to the news.
5:13 am
an ultimatum for bob filner. they say resign or face a recall. filner is reeling from a sexual harassment scandal but not stepping down. he is planning a two-week hiatus to undergo counseling. stephanie elam is live with the latest on bob filner's problems. hi, stephanie. >> hi, kate. the wheels set in motion for a recall. we heard a citizen group deliver a letter on friday and at 5:01 p.m. pacific time, if he does not resign, they say he'll ask for a recall. >> i apologize to the people of san diego. and most of all, i apologize to the women that i have offended. >> reporter: apologizing once again mayor bob filner still refusing to resign. instead, he plans to go to therapy. >> august 5th i will enter a
5:14 am
counseling clinic to undergo two weeks of. >> reporter: but it continues now that seven women have publicly accused the mayor of inappropriate conduct. >> he got very close to me. and he ran his finger up my cheek, like this. and he whisperred to me, do you have a man in your life? >> i turned and he just slobbered down my chin and i was so violated. >> reporter: laura fink worked for filner in 2005 and she said he groped her at a fund-raising dinner. >> one guest said you should be nice to this girl because she worked her behind off for you. he patted me on the behind, laughed and said, nope, it's still there. >> reporter: fellow democrats like senator dianne feinstein are growing the growifor filner >> anyone lacking a moral
5:15 am
compass sets what san diegans want. >> now, there was a poll taken by the san diego union tribune after bob filner's last press conference on friday evening. in that respondence actually said that they ultimately believe that filner will be recalled. about 60% of people and the numbers not in his favor whether you look at it by gender or political affiliation. the other thing by a wide landslide, almost everyone polled said they do believe the claims out there about filner. chris? >> thank you, stephanie, very much. from that back overseas to cannes. why? it's known for film festival but this morning the scene of a brazen jewelry robbery that went down in broad daylight. police there are looking for a lone gunman who walked into a ritzy hotel and walked out with $53 million worth of diamonds
5:16 am
and jewelry. aar erin is live. good morning. >> the carlton hotel is known as the place to stay in cannes for its glitz and its glamour. it's here you'll find all the stars for the annual cannes film festival. people here shocked and surprised that a man armed with a gun was able to enter the hotel and steal millions of dollars of jewelry. it's a story straight out of a hitchcock film. >> filmed on a beautiful french riviera. >> reporter: one man walks into a hotel in cannes, france, and walks out with $53 million worth of diamond jewelry. >> diamonds. >> reporter: the carlton hotel, the setting for the iconic movie "to catch a thief" was the sight of one of europe's biggest jewelry heists sunday morning. >> this was a gun and nobody stopped him. nobody -- i don't know there was nobody around and they just gave him 40 million worth of jewelry.
5:17 am
just incredible. >> reporter: police say a robber whose face was covered by a hat and scarf threatened to shoot exhibitors and guests during the hold up. cannes, home of the international film festival, is known forglitz and glamour. later that same month, over $1 million worth of jewels were stolen from a safe in the novatal hotel. this latest heist comes after a pink panther jewel thief gang escaped from a swiss prison. however, too close to say if there's any link to this incident. authorities this morning are looking through surveillance footage of the crime. >> dilanamonds are like cash. so, they can, they can be very influential in acquiring weapons, in acquiring drugs or anything else that we want to
5:18 am
keep out of society. >> reporter: thankfully no one was hurt in yesterday's heist. not a single shot fired and this morning looking for answers as to how this could have happened and why there wasn't any security. officials so far offering no additional information. chris and kate. >> we'll probably have to keep erin mclaughlin there so she could unearth these clues. >> wild story. >> it is. but they always are. bank robbers have to be creative, but what they do is often dangerous. this one wasn't. that's why the crime for doing these kind of penalties, very good. coming up next on "new day" a pilot whale struggling to get back into the water, well sea world says that it was never in danger, but the video is causing an uproar online. a former sea world trainer is going to be joining us next. >> doesn't look good, that's for

not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you.
5:21 am
stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
5:22 am
welcome back, everybody. video of a beached whale has taken, it was taken at sea world and gone viral sparking outrage. the video shows the whale struggling to get back into the water as shocked visitors screaming for help. follows the release of a new documentary that questions the way whales are treated. >> the whale is eventually helped and ultimately was not harmed but still definitely tough to watch. >> the dolphin, he's stuck!
5:23 am
>> these frantic screams from visitors at sea world are outraged. the young pilot whale floundered helplessly for nearly half an hour despite pleas from the crowd for a sea world employee to help. according to a sea world spokesperson pilot whales come out on the ledge all the time, usually getting back into the pool by themselves. it's the younger ones, like the one in this video they say haven't quite mastered the technique. trainers eventually helped the whale back into the water. sea world released this statement to cnn saying "i want it reassure you the whale was never in danger. the safety and health of the animals in our care are among our highest priorities." as a new film "black fish" questions certain practices at sea world, it was three years ago a 12,000 pound killer whale dragged a trainer under water by
5:24 am
her ponytail causing her death. the film cites other terrifying incidents accusing them of putting profit before safety. >> captivity without a doubt increases the stress level of these animals and stress leads to frustration, frustration leads to aggression. >> reporter: sea world responded to the film in this statement to cnn saying "the film fails to mention sea world's commitment to team members and guest and the care and welfare of its animals." now, sea world also said in a lengthy statement that, "instead of a fair and balanced treatment, the film is inaccurate and misleading." cnn films has purchased the rights to "blathe film and it w air october 28. let's talk more about this. joining us is john hargrove. took part in the documentary as you saw "black fish" and will be airing on cnn in the fall. great to see you, thanks for
5:25 am
coming in. everyone knows sea world. so many have gone to sea world. i want to get to the video and pilot whale in just a second. about your experience with sea world and you're very critical of the company, though, since you've left. what changed for you. you had many years of experience with sea world and what did you leave and what changed your view? >> 14 years at sea world and i loved those whales and believed in what i did. throughout the years as you get promoted higher up throughout the system, you do start to see things you don't agree with that are in the animal's best interest. as an experienced trainer you feel like if i don't fight for these animals from the inside, who is going to fight for those animals. you keep it there for a long time. the catalyst for me leaving was how they handled alexis being killed. a lot of people didn't realize it was one of our whales on our
5:26 am
supervision and most importantly for me was how they testified in the osha hearing, they testified in federal court that they had no knowledge they knew we had a dangerous job. >> this is a big focus of this documentary, how sea world has handled this. what, in your view, what do they do wrong? you love the animals, you want to train them, but what is wrong with how sea world handles the training of these animals and also their training? >> even though sea world is the most largest and powerful in the world they have the most money and most money for the most resources, they still don't give back to these animals that are making all this profit for them. for example, the shamu stadiums have not been updated since the mid-1980s. the killer whale pools are the same sterile concrete pools since the mid-1980s. >> do you think this is making it dangerous for the an amales and making it dangerous for the
5:27 am
trainers? is that what you're saying? >> we, the trainers, we're willing to take that risk with killer whales because that's our passion and we love what we do. but it's a totally different ball game when a corporation is willing to put their employees at risk for profit. and that's really kind of been the crux of the osha case against sea world. >> we should say that sea world didn't respond to cnn's request for interview on this. i want to get to the video that we have shown that went viral. the video of the pilot whale stuck on the wall and not able to get off. sea world said it was never in danger. what is your take when you see this? >> well, honestly, when i first see it i'm glad that people, concerned public are coming forward and saying, look, we want answers. we want accountability and i love that and i think this is a by-product of now "black fish" coming out but, honestly, i can tell you, physically, the animal is not in danger in that
5:28 am
scenario. they can stay slid out for hours at a time. however, with that being said, the animal is definitely in distress. because of that, the trainers should make every move they can to get that animal back into the water as quick as they can. some of the things that would hold off on that is if say it was an aggressive situation. if that animal had slid itself out to escape an aggressive situation, trainers coming out would need to assess the environment, call the other whales over and gate them out and into another pool so they could safely put the whale back into the water. but i'm just happy to see that people are speaking out and these things happen, they're willing to take it and demand answers. >> you're speaking out, as well, in that documentary, "black fish" raising a lot of questions and spurring a lot of controversy. john, great to see you, thanks for coming out. >> chris? coming up on "new day" talk about a needle in a hay stack, a

welcome back to "new day." actor jason patric is notoriously press shy. but the 47-year-old star is in a difficult custody battle with former girlfriend. he wants to help the child he fathered by in vitro fertilization but the baby's mother wants him out of the picture. a look at the high-profile case that could change the face of parental rights. >> reporter: calling a father just a sperm donor is an insult, but the fate of unmarried dads.
5:40 am
actor jason patric says he's one of them. known for roles in "lost boys" and "speed 2" is in a heated dispute with his ex-girlfriend over their 3-year-old son, gus. gus was eventually born through in vitro fertilization. videos and photos showing them a happy family, she never inten d patric to be more than a sperm donor. as proof she points to this letter saying he wasn't ready to be a father and left off the birth certificate. a stack of documents showing him as father and showing financial support and those photos all of which, he says, show the obvious. he is gus' dad.
5:41 am
but here's the catch. under current california state law a man whose sperm is used by a fertility clinic must have a signed agreement stating plans to co-parent, otherwise, he does not have parental rights. >> the men who are currently at risk are men who donate their sperm and it's some time after the conception, that man and the mother agree that they're going to hold them out to be the father. >> reporter: california state senator jerry hill who wrote the original law is now leading the charge to amend it, to allow for a donor who says he intended to be a father, but had no signed agreement. the opportunity to gain parental rights. patric says there will be others like him, but his immediate concern right now is for little gus who he says needs his father. so, basically, you're unmarried and decide to have a kid and doesn't go the right way early on. you use fertility. if you don't have an agreement
5:42 am
in california and other states, the father could be cut out. >> yeah, that's what happens and that what happened to me. i didn't know at the time, but when we split, that's what happened. >> you wanted us to blur gus' face. when was the last time you saw him? >> 23 weeks today. >> why, even though there is this fight about your role, why is your understanding of why the mother won't let you see your boy? >> i have absolutely no boy she was on "today" show saying she has no problem with me seeing him. i addressed the camera and she's been ignoring me now for 23 weeks. >> did she ever tell you, we know this relationship between us is not what it needs to be, i'm the sole parent? >> no, never. >> did she ever say, look, there's this law. under the law, i already protected myself?
5:43 am
>> this law is what her lawyers found two months into our separation and i was as shocked as could be when they hit me with those papers. >> you were already in court having the typical battle how much money you were going to give and time with the kid. >> we spent seven hours and in that seven hours' time, which is a long time, the word donor was never raised at all. they had not located this statute yet. >> now, the relationship was not what it needed to be, right? i mean, the idea of you guys had the perfect relationship, you don't know where this is coming from, that's not your case. that's not what you are saying. you guys had your problems. the letter she points to, you're not on the birth certificate, those are bad facts, how do you explain them? >> they're facts. i don't know if they're bad facts. the letter they show excerpts of is a break-up letter and we tried to have kids for years and she had a bad miscarriage and
5:44 am
you watch how the relationship changes with that pressure. you doubt yourself. i talk about my life, my career, everything in that letter and, certainly, i wanted to and months later when we went in, you know, i signed these papers which i thought were protecting me. >> the birth certificate. you're known as a private guy. that's your reason for why you're not on the birth certificate. she said, no, he was keeping this kid a secret. people didn't know he was the father. what do you say? >> none of that is true. i never had a child before and it was a first child and anyone who has a first child you get very overprotective with the first child. my father had some fame and i had bad memories of a lot of that and i had bad situations with the press. if i could give gus two years of anonymity and protect him and i wasn't in a relationship with her, when i was away make sure people weren't there and i think
5:45 am
i have ever right to do that. >> different documents from the lawyers in the case. the school forms. you're all over the school forms as the parent. >> yes. >> you were part of this process, you were put in as the dad. was it to help him get into school or a statement of what it was? >> when i'm sitting there with danielle scheiber and with the school director and talking about how much we would like our child to come and i'm paying for the school, it was only when this went down seven months later did i find out she said, she put me down purely as an actor to try to get her son into a school. >> there is a note on the form here where it says only one legal guardian at present. it's dated 6/30/12. you say that was after the fact. >> our initial interview process was in february 2012. when we split up she went back and she changed documents. she actually took me off the emergency list and put a nanny in place. took his father off the list and
5:46 am
put a nanny there. >> then it comes down to this. you need to have an agreement? why, we want to protect women from people who are just sperm donors and don't try to get involved in a life that they have waived their rights to. protect women and their families. this law can catch up unmarried man who don't have a contract for being parents. you go to the clinic two different forms you can sign. one is signed by the mom that says i'm just using a donor here and that's what this situation is. that person will have no more rights. >> that's right. >> was this form ever signed? >> no. >> was never used? >> no. that is a known donor form which means you waive all your rights, if you have a known donor. >> what was signed by you is an intended parent form that's like 20-plus pages of your signatures. it says in here that, obviously, you're intended parents and you have to notify the state, if you change your partnership and if
5:47 am
the -- god forbid something happens to themotor, the embryos would go to you. >> that's right. >> all this was signed by you and danielle? >> and a witness, yes. >> to you what does that mean? >> i intend to child this parent. give birth, nourish and raise a child. i'm signing jason patric intended parent and she's signing next to me, she's confirming she wants to raise this child with me. >> why didn't the judge regard this as the contract for parenting? >> because he misinterpreted this. this is the whole point of the bill that senator hill is putting out. not a new law but a clarification of the law's original intent. someone who just wasn't married and using ivf. >> it was drafted before, these unconventional relationships as we call them today and that's your concern going forward. we see these pictures and we see
5:48 am
these videos. you showed me other ones of you teaching him to how to sing songs and stuff like that, it does seem like you have a real connection with this kid and now he's not in your life at present. what is that like? >> he's my son. and i'm his father and always have been. it's beyond devastating. it's beyond devastating. i want to make sure this never happens to anybody else. will it help me? the law going through to get gus? i hope so. if anything, when i can't have him the idea if i could stop any other man or any other child to go through this, it's important. because it is really about him. it's about gus and his rights and he can't speak and his father is gone and he has absolutely no idea what happened. people break up, they break up bad. i wasn't a perfect boyfriend, we have laws for married people to prevent that. i fell into a quirk where look relationships end bad and now someone is using a situation to
5:49 am
hurt me, but it hurts the child and that's -- i just want gus to have the most love he could have in his life, period. that's what ever child deserves. >> what is it like not having him in your life? >> unthinkable. i mean, how do you sleep? what's he doing right now? when sandyhook happened, you just break down. you want to go hug your child and you can't find your child. you want to do everything you did. the hardest thing is staying present. i have to do things like this and i have to make people aware of this. being present puts you in the pain of what it's like not to have him with you and just, the bewilderment of how someone you were with for all these years could do this to you and do this to the child. >> and the truth is, no matter how good a father, how real a father you are, it doesn't matter under this law. >> if you interpret it like this judge did, i could have been with her for 16 years and she could have met someone tomorrow and taken my child away and i would have no recourse
5:50 am
whatsoever. >> not just california? >> no, it's other places. that's why it's important to go through. it really is. and, as i said, it's a clarification of something that was always meant to be. but this is a new, this is a new age of different relationships. people have children later and so many people availing themselves of this reproductive technology. >> politics are ugly the same lawmaker who proposed the original law wants the amendment and we'll follow the story and see what happens with the law because a lot of other fathers who can be involved in this. i know it's not easy to talk about this, i know it's painful, but thank you for joining us. >> jason patric. >> all right, chris, thank you. coming up next, john travolta strutting his stuff in a new rum commercial. why, oh, why? john burrman is here to explain. ♪
