>> we'll have that a little bit later. we're going to start with our top story this morning. the latest on the massive trail derailment in new york. this is a live scene at the disaster scene outside the bronx. cranes have begun to lift the cars back onto the tracks. gio benitez is on the scene. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. there you see it, cranes are hard at work right now, and so are investigators. abc news has learned that investigators will know today how fast this train was going and whether those brakes worked. overnight, cranes turned over the locomotive of the derailed train. the rest of it waiting to be lifted. the ntsb tweeting these photos of investigators retrieving the important black boxes. the data in each may show what led to the disaster that injured more than 60 and killed four. the dead i.d'd as 59-year-old james ferrari, 54-year-old donna smith,
7:03 am
35-year-old kisook ahn, and 58-year-old james lovell, going to work on the rockefeller christmas tree special in new york city. >> by the time i looked up, it was completely going off its track. >> i felt i was going to die, to be honest. >> reporter: this picture reportedly shows passengers standing inside a flipped-over car. and this new video shows the scene of the metro north crash from a passing train. >> our mission is to understand not just what happened but why it happened. >> reporter: investigators haven't said why the train derailed. the train's engineer, william rockefeller jr., pictured here, reportedly said he applied the brakes but they didn't work. rockefeller is reportedly a 20-year vet twreran with a clea disciplinary record. the train left poughkeepsie for new york's grand terminal at 5:54 a.m. sunday. nearly an hour and a half later, at 7:20, as the train reached this curve, the massive derailment.
7:04 am
ryan kelly survived the crash, fracturing his hand. >> everyone around you, were they okay? >> everyone around me was all right, except one woman pinned between two seats. >> reporter: this accident happened in nearly the same spot where a freight train derailed months ago in july. police commissioner ray kelly assuring commuters investigators will find answers. for people who use the train every day, what do you say to them? >> the systems are safe. just based on sheer volume, sometimes accidents happen. in terms of the specific cause here, that's going to have to be determined by a full investigation. >> reporter: and we've learned investigators will be here for at least a week. today they'll interview the engineer to see what he says about what happened. by the way, sadly, these are the first deaths in metro north's 31-year history, robin. >> tragic. gio. thank you very much. we're thinking of the families that are affected.
7:05 am
including our friends at nbc suffering the loss. >> gentleman that worked on the "today" show. we're thinking of them this morning. we're going to turn to the dangerous health scare in the air. when a passenger from austin to phoenix was found to have a health condition after the plane took off. abc's jim avila is at reagan international airport with the latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. you can add this to the list of things you don't want to hear on your next flight. passengers, upon deplaning, get a tuberculosis test. everything seemed normal as usairways express flight 2846 took off saturday afternoon from austin texas. once in the air, a frightening development. the tsa notifying the airline that a passenger on board had been put on the no-fly list because of a medical condition. the rest of the 74 passengers and crew members, potentially at risk. we spoke to one of those passengers overnight.
7:06 am
>> as we were taxiing, a stewardess came down the aisle. she had a mask. she instructed this gentleman to put the mask on. >> reporter: this morning, it's believed that the condition was tuberculosis. throw usairways won't confirm. >> the warning that came from the cdc did not occur until after the flight departed. the passenger didn't have a red flag in their reservation system or any warning there. >> reporter: when the plane landed in phoenix two hours later, paramedics and police swarmed. passengers were told to get a tb test and follow up with the cdc. >> the fireman said he has tuberculosis, he's contagious, you must see physicians immediately and be tested in three months' time. >> reporter: tb is a bacterial infection of the lungs that is contagious and sometimes deadly, but the cdc say, even if it was tb, exposure to other passengers would be unlikely. now the big question remains,
7:07 am
why didn't the cdc warn the tsa before the passenger got on the plane? we hope to find out more about that today. george? >> okay, jim, thanks very much. >> many are wondering about that. now to new details this morning on the deaths of "fast & furious" star paul walker and his friend, killed in a fiery car accident over the weekend. investigators are working to determine the cause of the wreck. cecilia vega has the story. >> reporter: he's the speed demon who rose to fame in the "fast & furious" blockbusters. now this real-life twist that all too closely mirrors the movies he made. >> we have confirmed two d.o.a. >> reporter: this morning, new details in the joy ride that ended in a fiery crash, taking actor paul walker's life. the driver, walker's friend, roger rodas, was a pro racer with championship titles to his name. not his first time driving a car like this. >> right. >> that's why i'm shocked. he's driven cars faster than this.
7:08 am
>> reporter: a porsche carrera gt, that can hit speeds up to 240 miles an hour. reportedly being sold for more than $300,000. and so difficult to handle, even professional drivers called it scary. on saturday, both men attended a toy drive and car show for walker's charity, reach out worldwide. here's walker with the porsche in one of the last known videos of the 40-year-old star. >> they pulled out of the parking lot slow. >> reporter: jim thorp spoke to both men just before they rode off. the crash happened in a business park just a few blocks away, minutes after they left. what was the last thing you heard paul say? >> hey, i'll be right back in five minutes. those were the last words i heard. >> reporter: they struck a tree and a pole. both men pronounced dead on the scene. the mangled car unrecognizable. the pole, bent in two. "fast & furious" co-star, tyrese gibson among the throngs of mourners who visited the scene,
7:09 am
leaving in tears. >> it's been awhile since i've been behind the wheel of one of these. >> reporter: he was on a break from filming "fast & furious 7." production is now reportedly delayed. >> the real question is, how long they're going to take to figure out the direction of the film and to make everyone comfortable with coming back to work. >> reporter: he has another movie scheduled for release in two weeks. he plays a father trying to save his baby daughter during hurricane katrina. >> i'm at st. mary's hospital, i have a baby that needs rescued. >> reporter: and he leaves behind his 15-year-old daughter, meadow. this is the scene where he crashed and die, robin. >> i know they're going to continue to look into it. thank you. now to josh with the morning's other top stories. a homicide investigation outside an nfl stadium. in the parking lot of the broncos/chiefs game in kansas city yesterday. police say, when a man and his son walked to their jeep in the parking lot, they found a stranger sitting inside the vehicle. the man and the stranger got into a fight. when the stranger tried to run
7:10 am
away, he's said to have collapsed unconscious on the ground. an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. police questioning witnesses. no arrests have been made. freezing rain is being blamed for this massive pileup. you see here in massachusetts. 65 cars and trucks in all. 40 people were injured, two of them seriously. overnight, crews removed the wreckage of a police helicopter that crashed into a busy pub in scotland, killing nine people. police are worried more victims could be buried in the rubble. vice president biden arrives in asia this morning. hoping to ease rising tensions with china. his first stop, tokyo, which has defied china's new air defense zone. china wants all planes flying over a disputed island chain to identify themselves, a move criticized by the u.s. and developing story this morning, violence erupting in the ukraine. 300,000 people took to the
7:11 am
streets in the capital. you see some of it here, furious that the president has rejected a trade deal with europe. wherein while, back in this country, a bizarre crime raising some security concerns in seattle. police say that a man stole that 132-foot ferry. you see there on sunday. he jumped a security fence. s.w.a.t. teams swarmed the boat. they finally took him into custody. you see that here, after a two-hour standoff. and finally, money doesn't really fall from the sky until, of course, it does. apparently, it helps if a choir ski skins "let it snow," as they did in the mall of america. as $1,0001 bills began falling from the fourth floor. it turns out it was a guy throwing cash off said fourth floor. and the video posted on youtube, he said he was just trying to spread holiday cheer. police, however, not so much. they've charged him with disorderly conduct. they've banned him from the mall
7:12 am
for one year. he had stamped the dollar bills with his youtube address. a publicity stunt. >> oh, oh. >> it's not always a good idea to throw $1,000 in the air in a crowded mall. >> not exactly. >> okay, josh, thanks. the latest on the obama care website. white house now claims it has been fixed, working smoothly 90% of the time, but will consumers find that to be true. so much at stake for president obama and millions of americans seeking health insurance. and abc's jon karl has all of the latest from the white house. good morning, jon. >> reporter: the white house is not quite declaring mission accomplished. they say they've finally achieved their first goal, getting the website improved to the point where most people can use it to pick out health insurance. after two months of system crashes and error messages, the white house says is working for the vast majority of people who try to use it. in a report filled with colorful
7:13 am
charts and graphs. the white house uses to measure its success. some 400 software bugs and hardware problems have been fixed. the website can now handle 50,000 users at a time, 800,000 a day. it's now accessible 90% of the time, up from just 40% in october. the man in charge of the website reboot, gave his bottom line in a conference call with reporters. >> on december 1st is night and day from where it was on october 1st. >> reporter: independent experts say there's little doubt the website is working better. >> for the most part, users can now log in, search for different plans relevant to them. >> reporter: but the fixes have not been tested with heavy traffic. the white house is being cautious, delaying a big marketing push to get people to enroll and advising people to visit the site during off-peak times to avoid delays. some critics say little has been done to address security concerns.
7:14 am
>> the security of the site and the private information does not meet even the minimal standards of the private sector. and that concerns me. >> reporter: while it's much easier for people to register on the website and pick out health plans, insurance companies say there is still a big problem with the last step in the process, actually buying your health insurance. it's because the government computer system is having a hard time communicating and transferring information over to the computer systems for the insurance companies. in other words, george, it's not quite fixed yet, but it's vastly improved. >> and there will be a big surge in december. thanks very much. now to the eye-opening news from amazon. it could be the future key to avoiding the holiday shopping madness. the company revealed amazon primary. drones that could be delivering your packages within a half hour after you place your order. rebecca jarvis has the latest on this cybermonday. >> reporter: call it survival of the fittest at the hunger games
7:15 am
of shopping. women brawling then getting tasered. merchandise flying through the crowds. an unruly shopper tackled by police. if this isn't your idea of a good time, check out amazon prime air. a new way to shop from the comfort of your home with a little help from a flying drone. yes, a drone, delivering gifts right to your door in under 30 minutes. ceo jeff bezos unveiled prime air on cbs' "60 minutes." >> we can carry objects up to 5 pounds which covers 86% of the items that we deliver. it could be a 10 mile radius from a fulfillment center. >> reporter: amazon says the drones are ready to go. but they still need approval from the faa. so it could be awhile before this idea gets off the ground. until then, you'll have to shop the old-fashioned way, online. "today," cybermonday, expected to be the biggest since the
7:16 am
phrase was coined eight years ago. >> this day is the single all rightest commerce day around. it's so important for the retailers to be competitive. that they really do get out of our way to get our attention. >> reporter: some of the biggest bargains, amazon offering a new deal every ten minutes. then sitewide discounts, 50% off at old navy, 40% off at including 50% off at old navy, 40% off at h&m and 20% off at macy's and kohls. and at, $150 off an ipad. the biggest sellers this weekend were tablets and tvs. today, it's all about apparel. americans are expected to drop close to $2 billion online today. if you're getting in the game, don't forget many best deals require a coupon code. and you can check out, for a list of coupon codes. it will probably take a few days, still, robin and george, before you get what you buy. >> and we have "deals & steals" coming up later. thank you so much. this football game.
7:17 am
>> wow! >> one for the ages. >> wow! wow! you'll forgive me. i'm actually understating the "wow" factor of this game. saturday, if you watched it, lucky you. if you didn't, sorry. we'll show it to you again. one of the most anticipated matchups in the sport. auburn/alabama, the iron bowl. auburn pulling a wild upset to a game, an end that left fans staring at television screens. wondering if they actually saw what they just saw. it is simply one of the most astounding plays in college football history. >> all right. here we go. no. it does not have the leg. chris davis takes it in the back of the end zone. he'll run to it the 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 45, there goes davis! oh, my gosh! >> davis is going to run it all the way back. auburn's going to win the football game. auburn's going to win the football game! >> reporter: watch again. no time remaining, the score
7:18 am
tied in saturday's iron bowl between auburn and unbeaten alabama. chris davis returns a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown. >> holy cow! >> reporter: and the win. knocking number one alabama out of the cat bird seat and all but ending their chances of winning a third consecutive national tight. >> auburn slays goliath at home. a team that's won 3 of the last 4 national championships. a team that was number one in the nation this year. so much nfl talent across the board. >> reporter: headlines in their shared state proclaiming auburn miracle. auburn shocks 'bama. believe it. starting alabama kicker cade foster, benched for the final kick, received a deluge of death threats and profanity-laced attacks on twitter after missing three earlier kicking attempts. this morning, foster's teammates gathering as one tweeting we win and lose as a team. and, we are all human. twitter trolls cannot stop this from what -- taking its place.
7:19 am
this is one of the great plays you'll ever see in the sport's history. rod bramlett. the auburn radio voice there. remember him two weeks go? this was the same team that caught that hail mary pass two weeks ago. >> war eagle. >> war eagle. >> thank you, josh. >> that energy, i don't know how to top it. let's talk about weather. if we had a hurricane to talk about, it would be just as excited. my goodness. we have a new winter storm. 12 states under some sort of winter storm advisory. or warning. i'm showing you them here. and how much snow and where does it fall? i'm going to leave you with that. some of the mountain areas get up to two feet. great for skiers. not so great for driving around on the road. your local forecast coming up in 30 seconds.

7:32 am
♪ everyone wants a safe place to fall ♪ >> reporter: fbi agents say graham pushed her blindfolded husband face first off a cliff in glacier natural park in july because she didn't love him anymore. >> did you mean to push your husband off a cliff? >> reporter: she's pleaded not guilty. her attorneys say it was an accident. that the newlyweds were fighting an graham pushed him away in self-defense. prosecutors hope by introducing evidence she allegedly wanted other members of her family dead, the jury will get to know what they say is the real jordan graham. >> the key is discrediting her statement and background and statements about other potential harm to people. >> reporter: prosecutors are asking to introduce evidence that graham made up abuse allegations against people she dated before johnson. the judge has not ruled on the admissibility of either yet. jordan graham remains free on bond. staying at the home of her mother and stepdad, the very
7:33 am
people prosecutors say she talked about killing. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, dallas. let's get more on this from dan abrams. so much to talk about here. first of all, the idea that she may have threatened to kill her mother and stepfather. can they get that into evidence? >> very, very unlikely that that would come in. you weigh the prejudicial impact of something like this against how probative it would be and the presidential impact would be so great. if she takes the stand, i expect she will, if she makes a comment like i never would think of hurting anyone. i would never think of -- >> that opens the door. >> then they could say, ah-ha. we want to discredit that statement. but without that, that's going to be very lard. they have a better shot of getting in the evidence that she had made up allegations against past boyfriends. that could be tough as well. >> the evidence of a blindfold just mind-boggling. >> it also fundamentally changes
7:34 am
the case. because up to sort of a few weeks ago, this steams like a case of, did she push him from behind, did she push him from the front, et cetera. if this wasn't about pushing at all? if this was about someone being blindfolded on top of a mountain, then pushed? that's a fundamentally different theory. we don't know if they're going to pursue that. they want to remain consistent in what they believe happened here. >> all this make a plea deal less likely? >> yeah. i think the prosecutors don't trust her at all. they don't think this was -- it seems that they don't think this was a little altercation. if they believe this is premeditated, i don't think they can reach a deal at all. certainly, when we first heard, it seemed like a plea case to me. >> thank you, dan. now to the incredible story of survival. a man trapped in a car, deep in a ravine for six days, no food or water. somehow managing to stay alive and be reunited with his family.
7:35 am
clayton sandell has his amazing story. >> reporter: this morning, richard custer is in a colorado springs hospital, battered and bruised. finally able to talk about his ultimate test of survival. >> i thought i was in a dream. >> reporter: the 36-year-old's speech still garbled from that fateful day in mid-october when he was riding in a truck driven by his friend. it was his daughter's 13th birthday. >> i called her before her birthday so i could tell her happy birthday and be the first one to tell her. >> reporter: then the unthinkable. the truck went out of control, crashing down a ravine. moore was killed. custer trapped. >> i remember telling myself i can't move, i can't get out of this truck. >> reporter: for six frigid days and nights, no food, no water, and no one coming to help. many details of how he survived, he says, he can't remember. >> i stuck my arm out the big hole in the back of the truck and was yelling for help.

not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis.
