analyst still faces a maximum sentence of 136 years in jail, convicted on 20 counts, including stealing classified information, wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on the internet and possession of classified videos including a 2007 video showing u.s. troops firing on people in baghdad. so the judge will decide the sentence based partially on how much damage manning has caused to national security. same issue later today congress will convene a hearing on the national security agency's classified surveillance programs and edward snowden's leaks about all of this and take a look at the damage he caused. chris? >> barbara, thank you very much. appreciate the reporting. it is being called an epidemic, allegations of rampant misconduct at the tsa, the agency spoetz esupposed to be k you safe in the skies.

3:12 am
>> why are there so many cases and what is tsa doing about it. the report says they really can't get a handle on it. that raises a lot of issue. >> reporter: the government wants the tsa to make improvements in how they monitor allegations of misconduct and how they follow up after investigating. we reached out to the tsa and they tell cnn they're already working to implement the recommendations. >> thank you so much. never a good thing to hear in all those incidents. >> never that much of a surprise. the question is what will they do about it. >> we'll see if they work on it. good morning, everyone. making news nsa leaker edward snowden's father said the fbi tried to get him to return to moscow from the u.o u.s. from m.

3:55 am
major league baseball officials told the players' association that a-rod along with eight other players will be suspended this week and that number is significantly lower than what was originally suspected because investigators could not dig up enough evidence to warrant other suspensions. according to reports investigators did gather overwhelming evidence for their case against a-rod. the yankees third baseman says he will appeal any punishment. yesterday a miami judge ruled that major league baseball can sue the now closed biogenesis clinic for providing players peds, a big win for mlb because they can use the legal system to force witnesses to give them information that will help them further build their case against a-rod and other players. arguably the biggest drawback from going to live sporting events are the long lines you have to wait in to have a beer and go to the bathroom. now there's an app for that. san francisco 49ers are incorporating new technology into their new stadium that will allow to you get on your

let's start with the news here for more than a month hundreds of people across the country have been reporting mysterious symptoms resembling food poisoning. it was a parasite and health officials in two states think they have the culprit, bagged salad. cnn chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta joins us now but still a lot of questions. >> it's hard to keep recommending fruits and vegetables when we have the outbreaks. hundreds of people are waking up with food poisoning systems. the culprit may be in your fridge. prepackaged salad, that's the answer to the mystery of what was causing the most recent food poisoning outbreak. nearly 400 people in 15 states reported food poisoning symptoms caused by this microscopic parasite, psychospora. health officials in two states tracing the source to bagged salad. >> we saw there was a common exposure to bagged lettuce,
4:02 am
salad products. >> reporter: while a specific brand has not yet been named health officials in iowa and nebraska blamed mixed salad bags of iceberg and romaine lettuce. as well as carrots and red cabbage, but they also add the salad mix is no longer on the shelves in their states. this isn't the first time bagged salad has come under the microscope. >> oh my god! >> reporter: earlier this month calissa says her sister-in-law was pouring out a bag of kale and discovered a frog. >> she poured in kale and went to stir them and she says there's a frog in them. >> reporter: this february an e. coli scare triggered a recall on taylor farms baby spinach. this most recent outbreak sending at least 21 people to the hospital. the cdc and fda are continuing to look at the outbreak. they're not sure if all the
4:03 am
cases are related to the same outbreak. stay tuned. >> still have some investigation to do. >> the question becomes the timing. you get sick because you bought it now or lettuce you can still by. >> mid-june is when this started. people can get sick up to a few weeks after they consume this and the symptoms can last up to a couple of months. that's part of what makes these investigations difficult is that someone doesn't get sick for a couple weeks after they ate it. it's hard for them to trace it back. they're saying the lettuce being sold now should be safe and likely the lettuce sold should be out of people's refrimg raters, given that was mid-june. >> you won't have the bagged lettuce, it's perishable, it has an expiration date it would be out of your fridge. >> if you haven't thrown it out with june, you probably should. >> sanjay thank you so much. back to washington where private first class bradley manning will soon find out the
4:04 am
punishment for his crimes. the sentencing phase of his court marshall begins today. the former army intelligence analyst faces decades behind bars despite being acquitted of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy. barbara starr is live from the pentagon for more. this has been a court marshall you've been following from the beginning and gone on for a long time and now we move on to sentencing. >> good morning, kate, as the judge moves to the sentencing phase later today, one of the key questions for her will be how many years should bradley manning spend in jail based on the damage that he caused to national security, and damage to national security is also a question facing the other leaker, edward snowden. private first class bradley manning technically was spared a life sentence when the judge ruled he was not guilty of aiding the enemy. manning gave three-quarters of a million pages of classified documents about the wars in iraq and afghanistan to wikileaks,
4:05 am
the anti-secrecy website. the military accused him of putting lives in danger, saying some of the material was found in osama bin laden's compound. manning said he just wanted the public to know what the government was doing. supporters say it's a partial victory. >> the only reason why the government proceeded with this trial is so that it could pursue this dangerous theory that equates leaks to the press with aiding the enemy. >> it shows that a really very junior enlisted person can do battle with the federal government in a case where the government is really mad as hell about what happened here, throws everything it has at him and its biggest charge fizzles. >> but the former intelligence analyst still faces a maximum sentence of 136 years in jail, convicted on 20 counts, including stealing classified information, wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on
4:06 am
the internet and possession of classified videos including a 2007 video showing u.s. troops firing on people in baghdad. later today in congress there will be yet another hearing on the surveillance programs at the national security agency, that information that edward snowden leaked to the public another look at the damage he caused. kate, chris? >> barbara, thank you very much. joining me for more is cnn's senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey toobin, thank you for being on "new day." >> good morning. >> i say not so fast. not so fast about sentencing. whoa, what just happened here? manning was supposed to be an example three-quarters of a million pages, the largest leak ever, that he was fueling julian assange's message. this was supposed to be a big deal but we hear not guilty of aiding the enemy but convicted of supplying information to the press. is this a victory here? >> no, it's not a victory for
4:07 am
him. he's looking at really decades in prison and i think the judge struck the right balance. i think what manning did was wrong but it wasn't treason. it wasn't an effort to help our enemies. it was an incredibly misguided, wrong-headed attempt to get information out to the public. that's a crime. he was convicted of a crime, but just because you are a bank robber doesn't mean you're a murderer. there are distinctions among crimes. >> i get the bank robber not a murderer but the line between whistleblower and espionage, where is it? if you work for the government and leak things, why is that not espionage or when does it become that? >> we have a long tradition in this country and one of the complexities of this whole case which frankly i haven't figured out and i don't think the legal system has figured out how do you draw a distinction between what bradley manning did, which was giving 700,000 documents completely unplanned way and how do you compare that to what goes
4:08 am
on in washington every day where our colleagues, bob woodward, dana priest at "the washington post" go to government officials and say tell us what's going on, government officials say information that almost certainly is classified, that's not a crime. that shouldn't be a crime because we want journalists to be able to do their job and why is that legal and why is bradley manning illegal? >> they get him for 20 different charges, different counts. he may be looking at 100 years probably not but that's on the books and while there was nothing damaging to national security. how do you put those two in the same sentence? >> i think that's fortunate for us and fortunate for bradley manning but you know what? he doesn't get to decide what's in the national interests to disclose. yes it's fortunate that it turned out there was not a huge disaster but he didn't know that was the case. remember look what the foreign service officers do all day. they report on american interests abroad. they get people to confide in
4:09 am
them, foreign nationals to confide in them in confidence. he then throws that out to the press. he put both our government employees and people who cooperate with them in incredible danger. now good that it didn't work out that people got killed but we can't trust bradley manning to make those decisions. >> that wasn't considered a threat to national security? it's an important conversation to have that we're having right now because we'll keep seeing this. it affects freedom of the press, edward snowden, what happens to him. this case is meaningful because it projects what the policy will be of this country and other circumstances like this and we'll see more. >> the obama administration widely regarded as very liberal has been very tough on leaks and this is an example of that but it's not the only example. >> case doesn't stand along. jeffrey toobin appreciate the perspective. >> good to see you. >> kate? despite plummeting poll numbers anthony weiner says he is not getting out of the new

york city mayor's race. weiner says "quit isn't the way we roll in new york city." rosa flores has been following this. >> good morning, kate. kate, this is the story that keeps on giving. the anthony weiner campaign is yet again tangled in a web of distractions. this time it's an intern ruffling feathers and emotions. >> someone wants to come out with something embarrassing about you in your private life you got to talk about that for a little while. >> reporter: weiner tweeting out a revamped online message. >> sometimes people say to me this campaign is pretty rough, you may want to quit. quit isn't the way we roll in new york city. >> reporter: but his message could be drowned out once again by an explosive and graphic rant by his leading spokesman barbara morgan about his former intern's criticism of the campaign in the "new york daily news" in a four-letter word rampage to "talking points" memo morgan

used the word "slut" and other expletives describing the ex-intern olivia nuzy as fame country and saying she "sucked at her job." ? a statement to cnn morgan said "in a moment of frustration i used inappropriate language in what i thought was an off the record conversation. it was wrong and i am very sorry." but that's not all. the controversy escalated again following weiner's response to "daily news" columnist dennis hamel. when asked, "there is no one you are sexting now?" his answer, "you can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we're talking about is over a year ago." so we asked the question ourselves, but we couldn't hear his answer. morgan, the same spokesperson now tangled up in her own media frenzy, confirmed his response to us following the event. what was his answer?
4:12 am
>> his answer was no. >> we should add anthony weiner's spokesperson called and apologized to the former intern. in the midst of the drama weiner plans to continue campaigning. he released his schedule in the last half hour, one event today at 7:30 this evening and we will of course keep you guys posted. >> the best way to not -- the wrong way to handle a story if you want it to go away exactly what his communications director did. >> hard to make a story go away when nobody wants it to either. >> they're not helping. >> he's in a tough situation. a lot of news developing at this hour, we get over to michaela. edward snowden back in the news >> his father, the fbi tried to enlist the help of edward snowden's father in a wide-ranging interview with the republican lon snowden says they asked him to fly to russia to persuade his son to turn himself in. lon snowden did not think his son could get a fair trial in the u.s.

kali's parents want other parents to know if you're jumping into a warm lake or a hot spring this time of year when the water's really warm, what you want to do is hold your nose or use nose clips because that's how the amoeba gets in, is through the nose into the central nervous system and then into the brain. chris? kate? >> all right, elizabeth, thanks so much. good advice but hopefully this experimental drug works it could be huge for anyone who deals with this later. >> it would be huge in the category of not creating false panic. the chance of getting that in a swimming pool is not great. >> this is in ponds and lakes and things like that. it's very rare. >> a story we have to follow, good on that. we'll take a break on "new day." when we come back, popular medical student is murdered. it's turning into more of a mystery. they thought at first there were a lot of break-ins but this doesn't look like a break-in. what could it be? and an illinois lawmaker known as meltdown mike for his legendary rants we'll talk to

excited and ambitious and really looking forward to all the great things life had to offer for him. >> you described him as the kind of doctor or medical student who would have cured cancer. >> yes. >> when he talked about his future and what he wanted to do with his life what did he say? >> he was so passionate about serving others. paul and i met the first day of our college career and he was a biomedical science major and from day one he put his heart and soul into his studies, and his education because he was so passionate about becoming a surgeon. he never strayed from that dream. i never heard him talk about anything else. >> how close were you to him? >> extremely close. he was one of my best friends for the last seven years. >> i'm very sorry for your loss. i'm sorry to have you meet you this way as i said. our hearts go out to all of you. we will stay on this story to

4:41 am
washington. he will join us in a moment. first let's give you background on the former marine who is ready to fight for the american dream in congress. >> these damned bills, all the dam inned time come out here at the last second! >> he's known for his paper punching finger pointing tirades on the floor of the illinois legislature. >> enough! i feel like somebody trying to be released from egypt! let my people go! my god! they sent me here to vote for them! >> now the republican is hoping to bring that passion to capitol hill after nine terms in the state assembly he's running for congress. >> you should be ashamed of yourselves! >> reporter: bost often loses his cool while everyone around him seems to look bored. some call him meltdown mike for displays like this one during a debate over a concealed weapons bill. >> i keep playing games like this? vote no. >> reporter: his trademark outbursts have become internet sensations featured on
4:42 am
"letterman." >> how a bill becomes a law. >> these damned bills all the damned time! >> reporter: remixed to music. ♪ you stay on your side of the aisle ♪ >> reporter: even compared to chevy chase's famous christmas vacation rant. >> hallelujah! >> so let's talk more about this, joining me is illinois state representative and youtube sensation mike bost. thank you for joining me this morning. >> thanks for having me here. >> you're clearly passionate but i get a chuckle every time we take a look at your videos and i would love to know what you think when you see the videos of yourself. >> well, you've got to understand the situation, and it was two issues that had occurred in the illinois general assembly and any time -- i represent the people of the 115th district in illinois and any time you're going to violate their constitutional rights or any time that you're going to try to take away their rights for a clear and proper debate then my
4:43 am
job is i believe to stand up for them and i do the best i can with that. those are two times. now there's other times i work in bipartisan manner, work together my colleagues and i work together from both sides of the aisle but maybe we do need more passion, maybe we need passion in washington because unfortunately we're not getting things done right the way it is right now. >> mr. bost you sure sound you're running for something. i'll talk to but that in a second. what do you think about the fun people are having with your rants? >> you know that's fine. if you can't laugh at yourself with different things in life then you know, what's life about? and my family knows me, my constituents know me and we have a good time with it. >> so what sets you off? is this a typical day-to-day reaction on the floor of the state legislature? >> no, not at all. >> are you putting on a show to get some attention? >> there are only about two things that really bother me, if you're going to -- when i'm working in the general assembly
4:44 am
and someone just violates the rules and therefore takes those rules away from my constituents and my ability to defend my constituents and work on certain pieces of legislation, that's a problem i have trouble and i make sure that everyone understands the concerns i have and if you're going to violate the constitution of illinois or the united states, i have a problem with that. that and protecting my children are probably the things that would do that. >> i feel bad for any kid who takes on one of your kids after seeing these rants on the floor of the state legislature. >> child on child it would be a little different. >> i'm just playing with you. okay, so you are running for congress for the 12th confwregsal district in illinois. . >> i am. >> congress in the house known as a disfunctional group and a group most americans are saying they want to see them working together and working together more and screaming at each other less. so how are these rants going to play in washington? >> well, let me explain this to
4:45 am
you. in the meetings and the one on ones that might be true but if someone comes up to me and says they want to pass a bill just to figure out what it does, i would have problems with that and i think my constituents would as well. i would express some concerns with that. as a matter of fact one of the rants i had in illinois was on just that issue. i think -- obviously i get along with everybody in illinois. we do very well together, those are two rants over 18, 19 years. >> and the rant can go viral in a minute. before i let you go i think you've had the chance to see the video. we had a little fun with you yesterday here on "new day" comparing you to another famous online sensation, grumpy cat. >> grumpy cat. >> but grumpy cat let's be serious, grumpy cat has done pretty well for herself. she has a coffee drink line and movie deal. is this the end game? >> i don't know if there would be a mike-a-mocha in the future.
4:46 am
>> it already sounds delicious. we'll be following your race closely. good luck with it. it will be a colorful -- >> thank you for having me on. >> state rep. mike bost great to meet you thank you. >> thank you. >> chris? >> last thing he needs is more coffee. i respect the passion as long as he believes in what he's saying. he should get out there and get after it. we'll take a break and when we come back you go to the hospital to get well. you don't want to pick up an infection. dr. sanjay gupta will tell you what to look out for the next time you go to the hospital so you come home better than you go in. a real housewife out on bail in new jersey, hear about the reality star's true dose of reality, straight ahead on "new day." mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004. vietnam in 1972. he

5:01 am
sickened hundreds of people in many states. similar outbreaks reported in a dozen other states. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is following the new developments. you have an answer but you don't have an answer when you come to this thing it seems. >> you have enough of an answer probably to keep people safe and people probably want more information and this is going on for some time since mid-june and hundreds of people waking up this morning reporting foosympt. prepackaged salad. that's the answer to the mystery of what was causing the most recent food poisoning outbreak that has spread across the country. 400 people in 15 states reported symptoms caused by this microscopic parasite. health officials in two states tracing the source to bagged salad. >> we saw there was a common exposure to bagged lettuce. bagged salad products. >> reporter: while the specific
5:02 am
brand has not yet been named health officials in iowa and nebraska blamed mixed salad bags of romaine and carrots and red cabbage and the salad mix is no longer on the shelves in their states. this is not the first time bagged salad has come out of t. >> she poured out the kale and she said, there's a frog in there. we're all like, a frog? >> reporter: just this past february an e. coli scare triggered a recall on taylor farmed baby spinach. sending 21 people in three states to the hospital. now, a lot closer to an answer here, but the cdc and fda continue to look at this outbreak and other possible causes because they're still not sure if all the cases are linked to the same outbreak. they said 80% of them.
5:03 am
they still have more work to do. >> this is perishable food, people eat it and throw it out and out of the system before they found where it came from. >> you're asking people to remember what they had to eat a week ago. that's part of what makes these investigations hard. >> with all that in mind, what is the best advice with how to protect yourself? >> with this outbreak the bag lettuce in question is probably out of the food chain. a little bit of a sigh of relief. it comes prewashed. that saves you some work and a lot of times it does, but still wash it, hold it underneath the faucet instead of washing it in your sink. you have to think about it at both sides. dry it, as well, because the residue can stick to the lettuce or vegetables. >> you said that before about other things and that is one thing i did not know. the drying because you rub off
5:04 am
some of the parasite, if you will or whatever it is. that's an interesting point. >> trying to keep people safe. >> see, i do learn something from you, sanjay. thanks so much. sanjay will be back later this hour on a new report on how often patients get sick in the hospital. you want it see this. speaking of things that make you sick, congress. thinks it makes no sense to give paid vacations to employees that can't get anything done. you're paying as the lawmakers in washington get ready to leave after doing not enough for you. president obama is making a rare trip to capitol hill today to meet with lawmakers ahead of the august recess. so, little question on timing, though. but as they prepare to leave town, wait until you hear how little they have gotten done. can't say it enough. dana bash is live on capitol hill, i know it's nothing new, dana, but this time it seems to sting a little more than usual. >> right, i think it happens over and over, you start to say, huh? what's interesting the president
5:05 am
is coming here to capitol hill but only meeting with fellow democrats in the house and the senate, which means more of a preaugust recess prep rally than last-minute legislating. congress doesn't have the best approval rating and this certainly isn't going to help. let's start with the positive. a recent burst of bipartisanship. a deal to make sure many student loan rates don't double. a rare meeting of all senators that led to confirmation of several obama nominees. >> the senate certainly has functioned better over the last six weeks than it has inso law and house agreeing. >> the dysfunctionality is real. i don't know who the 9% are, the things that are working well. >> reporter: still unfinished, the farm bill. everything from farming to food stamps. immigration reform. it passed the senate, but the house is developing its own plans likely with no path to
5:06 am
citizenship for illegal immigrants. again, congress is way behind on its basic function, funding the government. which runs out of money september 30th or the government shuts down. conservatives like ted cruz says that may be necessary if they can't cut money for obama care. >> under no circumstances will i support a continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama a care. >> reporter: some republicans oppose that tactic. >> i just think that's a very self-defeating effort. >> reporter: bob corker will spend august continuing bipartisan talks with the white house on a spending plan. >> during august recess most of us work harder than we do here. >> reporter: also looming, the debt ceiling. defaulting on loans as soon as labor days. >> put the economy back in a tailspin and not the thing we want to do in washington, d.c. >> reporter: even though lawmakers, obviously, are elected to be here on capitol hill to legislate, plenty of them say they really do a better service to their constituents
5:07 am
these days than being back home with them. a lot of times during august recess you have moments that affect fall legislation. kate, you remember what happened a few years ago those angry town halls regarding health care, lawmakers are bracing for immigration to be a hot topic. >> likely hear from their constituents loud and clear. great to see you, thanks so much. trouble at the airport. today the house homeland security committee will hold a hearing looking into allegations by misconduct by airport security personnel. the government accountability office look at all these things reports that misconduct cases among tsa workers rose 26% over just the last three years. renee marsh is live in washington taking a look at this report and what it means. good morning, renee. >> good morning, kate. you know that hearing is set to get under way in just about two hours from now. we all know in any organization with some 56,000 employees, you may expect some rotten eggs in
5:08 am
the bunch and the tsa is no different. some of the misconduct is commonplace, excessive absence or tardiness and some is down right troubling and could have a major impact on security. the list includes everything from forgery, sexual misconduct to physical fighting and using abusive language. >> there's not even a way to properly report some of the offenses, so this may just be the tip of the iceberg of some of the offenses. >> reporter: it's the agency some fliers love to hate. posting their pat downs. >> if you touch my junk, i'll have you arrested. >> reporter: now, criticism from the government, not for pat down procedures but for incidents like this. tsa screener supervisor admitted accepting bribes and kickbacks from a co-worker who stole money from passengers at checkpoint at new jersey's newark airport. at newark's jfk pleaded guilty
5:09 am
to stealing $40,000 from a checked bag. the report also notes in a three-year pan, more than,0 9,0 cases of tsa was conducted. and more than 1,900 incident that could hurt security like sleeping on the job and allowing family and friends to bypass security. the union representing screeners said the numbers suggest the majority of screeners are doing a great squab. >> if you look at a population of a small city 56,000 in the workforce and the numbers on an annual basis are really very small. >> reporter: congressman john mica a long-time critic of the tsa called for an audit. >> why are there so many cases and what is tsa doing about it. the report says they can't get a handle on it. that raises a lot of issues. >> reporter: the government wants tsa to make improvements on how they monitor allegations
5:10 am
of misconduct and how they follow up after investigating. now, we reached out to the tsa and they tell us they're already working to implement the recommendations. chris? >> renee, thank you for that. a michigan mother has been sentenced for trying to hire a hitman. michaela has that story. >> julia didn't know that the hitman she happened to be talking to was an undercover cop, the camera happened to be rolling incredibly before she was sentenced, though. her husband forgave her and even asked the judge to show her mercy. >> wholeheartedly forgive my wife for all she has done in this act of hatred. >> reporter: the act of hatred planning his murder. she was caught twice in april trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband, 27-year-old jacob. >> i'm just going to take him head on and shoot him right in
5:11 am
the face. >> okay. >> reporter: why did she want him shot in the face? she told an undercover detective she would rather kill her husband than break his heart by leaving him. >> it's easier than divorcing him. i didn't have to worry about the judgment from my family and breaking his heart. >> reporter: but authorities say she was motivated by money. planning to cash in on her husband's $400,000 insurance policy, $50,000 of which would go to the hitman. now, she traded her superhero sweatshirt for jailhouse blues. just before her sentencing tuesday she begged the judge for leniency saying she's already been punished. >> honestly, it could have been worse. the crime that i attempted could have been carried out and that alone, honestly, is the worst punishment should ever have to endure and i will endure it for the rest of my life every single day. >> reporter: far cry from the woman seen laughing she told an
5:12 am
undercover cop she wanted her husband done in the front yard. >> you don't want it in the house? >> it would be messy in the house. >> reporter: not only does he forgive his wife, but he doesn't want her to serve any jailtime. >> a wonderful person, a wonderful wife. we have two young children. i ask for a lighter sentence, if you could, please, sir. >> that is what you call a verier forgiving man. the judge sentenced her to six years but could serve 20 years behind bars. a different woman in the courtroom there than you saw on video. >> she got caught. >> disposition changes when you're looking at the judge. if this plan had gone the way she wanted to, her husband would be dead. >> those children would be without a father. >> still, but, man, you can believe, i can't understand what was going through that husband's mind in the courtroom. >> we'll have to follow that to see what sentence there is.
5:13 am
one of many stories we're following for today. for more news, let's go back to the source. >> let's look at headlines making news. edward snowden's father said the fbi tried to have him fly to moscow and he told "washington post" the plan broke down when age aants would not or could not guarantee the two would be able to speak. when asked how he would describe his son patriotic, he comes from a family that involves federal agents and police officers. new york mayoral candidate anthony weiner is here to stay, despite for calls for him to get out of the may oral race. he has been taking a beating since he admitted continuing sexting with woman. now he released this defiant new video. >> i know there are newspaper editors and other politicians that say, boy, i wish that guy weiner would quit. you don't know new york, quit isn't the way we roll in new york city. >> meanwhile a top aide apologizing for using very foul
5:14 am
language to describe a former intern who wrote an article about the campaign. a rookie, a rookie with the houston astros making quite a statement last night. astros/orioles in baltimore. jonathan villar breaks from third and steals home. promoted from the minors just over a week ago. apparently had like five steals in eight games and doing amazing things and looks like he wants to stay with the big club. follow-up story to tell you about. remember we told you yesterday. the young brothers seen fighting off a robber. caleb and zane told us it's not the first robbery, in fact, caleb's third. we asked him what exactly happened when the robber came in the back door. >> basically, the robber kept telling us that he had a gun and that he had friends out behind the store that were going to be joining him and he saw the money right away on the counter in the
5:15 am
register. >> got in the way and then i came up and squeaked in between them and when he started to try to get into the office a, i grab the office door and try to slam it on him and when that didn't work, i just threw the door back and grabbed him. and then we started wrestling all over in the office. we did marshal arts and we started wrestling when we were, you know, 5 and 6. so, we basically pushed him out of the back door. >> they don't really know who it is yet. >> i don't believe they have any leads to go off of right now. >> the first robbery experience i had was a year and a half ago he decided not to shoot me and took half the money and left and from that point on i decided that i would never lose another fight, again. >> the feeling of, you know, the adrenaline and testosterone of beating this robber was, i mean, amazing. >> for me, just really exciting that we just beat him and didn't get hurt or anything and he didn't take any money.
5:16 am
>> excitement explains and they say their internet fame hasn't changed that much in their lives, for now. cautionary tale. you don't want to be doing that. you don't know if people have guns or not. >> never the best indicators of bad judgment. >> bad mix at times. >> hopefully they find who that is. the man is still at large. >> sorry, very excited about weather today. straight to indra petersons with the weather. >> we really cannot catch a break. we had flossie and gill already and notice this is where we're looking at it, but behind it a 60% chance that even another storm could form. so, lots to be looking at, especially when i kind of put the path here of gil right over flossie. the projected path and the comparison. stronger earlier on. that's something we're going to
5:17 am
be monitoring. also looking at more rain in the southeast. again, so much rain this june and july and anything seven to nine inches and today will not be anticipation an exception. heavier rain into the region and also looking at that cold front quicking making its way anywhere from the midwest to the northeast and, as it does so, looking at rain pretty much by that front. good side of it, cold front means cooler temperatures. >> beautiful day. have a good day, everybody. thanks, indra. coming up on "new day" you want to see a jail break in progress. here's one. here's the bad day. that's the cop chasing him. we'll show you the picture because the cops have issued a be on the lookout for this man. we'll tell you how he got out. and a real housewife visits a real courthouse in new jersey.

and what's worse here, this inmate on the run, a history of violence and a history of making things very, very tough for law enforcement. it was this daring stunt that set off a statewide manhunt. an arkansas inmate slipping head first through a narrow opening of the booking window at the garland county detention center. he appears to be talking on the phone, but that was just phase one of his plan. as soon as deputies weren't looking he makes a break for it, dashing right out the front door with a guard in hot pursuit. now on the run, estelle is considered armed and dangerous. his rap sheets includes 26 charges including aggravated robbery, breaking and entering and burglarly and, you guessed it, fleeing. he stole a car and led police on a chase that ended up in a standoff. >> wooded area and set up a
5:23 am
perimeter and several hours later took him into custody. >> reporter: this time they believe he acted with two accomplices. police believe this man william harding who was visiting the jail distracted guards by asking questions just long enough for him to make his move. tamara was believed to be driving the get away car waiting outside. the man who visited the jail and distracted the guards is in custody and police are looking for the woman suspected of driving the get away car which was found abandoned just a few minutes later by police in hot springs. >> putting up that picture so people can look at the man's face and help authorities find him. another story we're watching. a real-life courtroom drama for theresa and her husband, joe. they have been hauled into court, though, indicted on federal tax fraud charges and one could face deportation, as well. you were out in new jersey covering the case.
5:24 am
>> i was. once they got outside the courtroom, they were very quiet. the only time when they spoke if the judge understood the charges against them. getting into the courtroom, on the other hand, that was anything but calm. it was a court arrival you might expect from real housewife stars, teressa and joe guidice. joe's mother took a swipe at a photographer's camera. inside, prosecutors read the very serious charges against the couple, a 39-count federal indictment that includes bank fraud, failure to file income taxes and bankruptcy fraud. neither joe nor teresa entered a plea, but both had to surrender their passports. also reported that joe guidice is not a u.s. but italian citizen. they may pursue immigration charges. the guidices who are free after
5:25 am
posting bond, are united after the hearing, holding hands and even kissing. joe's attorney said both his client and bravo were aware of the investigation while shooting the "real housewives of new jersey" and is concerned that the show's popularity could impact the trial. >> here you have the show and the fame of the individuals, which can affect the jury pool. >> do you worry about the show and footage being used against them. >> i worry about everything. we try to prevent any prejudice from seeping in. >> reporter: legal experts say attorneys have an uphill battle on their hands. >> these are the kind of allegations that are very easy to prove. they could be looking at 55 years in jail. the fines alone $250,000 for some of them, $500,000. now, yesterday was just their initial court appearance. they won't formally enter a plea until their arraignment on august 14th. just to note, neither teresa's
5:26 am
brother, joe, or his wife, melissa, were in court. only joe's mother and father came yesterday. >> we'll talk more about it. potentially bad situation on many levels. you know what that means, good stuff. today's edition, 11-year-old gauge. gauge loves motorcycles, he also had cancer for most of his life. between rounds of surgeries and chemo his family asked him, what do you want for your birthday? maybe a ride on a bike. gauge didn't get one motorcycle, nothing small like that. guess what he got? 80. >> gage is a little boy that just turned 11. he's fighting cancer. go for another round to fight and we all know cancer sucks and we pull together. when you ask for bikers, did you think you'd get this many?
5:27 am
this is yours. >> every single one of these bikers have a heart of gold. >> they're going to set you down inside. >> we have a side car right there, we're going to load him up so that he's safe and take him into town. >> brought a tear to my eye. it's amazing see how well this community pulled together to help kids like this out. i love gage with all my heart. i just want to say thank you, all. g you have made all the difference in the world to gage and me and my family. >> they brought thousands of dollars in donations and plenty of gifts making it a special birthday for a special kid. >> hard on the outside and soft on the inside. >> motorcycle clubs -- >> communities come together and they do the right thing and that's why we tell their stories. >> the good, good stuff.

5:32 am
talking. welcome back to "new day." just about 30 minutes past the hour. wednesday, july 31st. i'm chris cuomo. >> i'm kate bolduan here with michaela pereira. 1.5 million medical errors occurring in hospitals every year. so, what is a patient to do? our dr. sanjay gupta is here with a new report on it. >> one of the few stories you can describe with just one word. denzel. >> it sounded like two. >> denzel is a word. oscar winner, we know that. he is now going to hit broadway, he has a new movie, it's a comedy. that's new for him. he'll talk about all of it with us, hopefully. first, five things you must know for your "new day." >> happy day. let's start. number one. health officials in two states now believe tainted bag salad the cause of the mysterious summer bug. more than 1,400 people have been

5:34 am
comes to surgical safety. not that great. 1.5 million preventable accidents occur each year and most are post operative. dr. sanjay gupta is joining us now with these, they're pretty alarming findings, sanjay. the report seemed to try to make the point that consumers are kind of in the dark when it comes to surgical safety. what do people need to know? >> i get this question all the time. who is the best doctor for this, what is the best hospital? it's a tough question to answer, i think for people even within the medical community. that is why this is getting so much attention. one of the headlines right away is that 30% of patients have some sort of post operative problem stroke, heart attack, sometimes very significant things and a question of which hospitals are these and are there some better than others. a couple other important rules of thumb. the name of a hospital or brand name of a hospital didn't seem to make that big of a difference. even one of the mayo clinic campuses got a low rating by this particular system.
5:35 am
what did seem to make a difference is not how many operations the surgeon performed but the hospital itself. going back to the post-operative, the post nursing care that makes a big difference in terms of how they do. >> you operate almost every week. do you find that all hospitals seem to have the same pre and post-op safety procedures in place. >> very inconsistent. >> that's surprising. >> you see airline industries, for example. very consistent in terms of checklists and not so in hospitals and not so even within operating rooms. i want to give you a glimpse. in my own operating room an idea of how we conduct things to give you an idea of how it might work. >> two, three -- >> this is my o.r. every monday for sure and every other friday usually, as well. so, i come in here and we have our team and everyone knows each other and more than being just good friends it makes for a better and safer operations. >> we're going to do a time-out.
5:36 am
this is new safety protocol in hospitals. carolyn is going to make sure that everything we're about to do is the right thing and on the right patient. >> everybody, time-out. has antibiotics been given? we have four units of blood in the room here, anrism clipping, everything is here. everyone agree? some of that may seem so basic. but just the checklist making sure that everybody is on the same page. anybody in the room. >> redundancy is a good thing when you're in the operating room. >> the question at everybody wants to know. i'm facing surgery and one that that i heard that helps is patient advocacy. if you can have somebody who is an advocate for you. >> that is a big one. especially when you're hearing this information, you are at a tough spot in your life. having someone else may make a big difference. give you a couple tips.
5:37 am
if you can schedule an elective operation, having it earlier in the week. also, really know your own medications. a lot of times you go to the hospital and now getting new medications and were they the same ones you were taking at home? any medications, any tests, ask if it is necessary. heart attack and strokes afterwards they found using a medication as a beta blocker can help decrease the chance of heart attack and stroke after an operation. a lot of stress hormones flairing at that time, that can help. they gave some real specific things in this report. >> concerning. >> something everyone should know about. sanjay, thank you. >> why the masks, sanjay? if you have nothing to hide, why the masks? >> for years we have been dealing with this anti-sepsis theory. it seems to work. >> very convenient. >> i think the doctor is doing something right. >> as the princess bride said, men in masks cannot be trusted. >> there is a sanjay gupta
5:38 am
exception to that. >> to everything. my mother is already so mad at me for saying that. stay with us, more sanjay. >> sanjay is running now. >> you must say, because we have this week's human factor. chuck fox, a man living with cystic fibrosis who overcomes simply by living each day. >> every day now chuck fox is beating the odds. >> when i was born, the average live expectancy for something with cystic fibrosis was 18 years old. currently they estimate it to be 38 years old and last year i passed that threshold. >> reporter: when he was born his parents were determined to see him thrive although doctors advised he may not survive. >> i have to wear this mechanical vest every day to help keep my lungs clear and help me breathe. get hooked up to that. and it's basically like doing
5:39 am
physical therapy for your chest and for your lungs. >> reporter: like his parents, chuck didn't allow the skepticism he encouraged discourage his dreams of becoming a doctor himself and having a family. >> if anything, it just sort of made me want to do it more and just prove that i could do it. >> reporter: that's exactly what he did. dr. fox graduated from harvard medical school and has been a practicing gastroenterologist and they're proud parents of 11-year-old twins, sydney and ben. >> i would say i'm the luckiest person i know. >> lucky and what a story. what a fabulous story, sanjay. >> 38 years old. patients don't usually live that long, but as you heard, his parents and now him say, you know, we're not holding back here. >> what an example for families struggling with this. >> that chest physical therapy really makes a big difference for him. >> don't forget to tune in to
