the players, stunned. good evening and we begin here with several fast-moving developments tonight on ebola. first, the american nurse held in a tent since she arrived home after helping patients on the front lines in west africa. perhaps you've seen that image of her looking through that plastic window. she argued this was far too extreme. she is not sick. tonight, she is now on her way home to maine amid growing debate over whether authorities went too far. also tonight, the 5-year-old rushed to a hospital here in new york, just back from west africa, showing concerning symptoms. this evening, the 5-year-old has tested negative for ebola. and tonight, some u.s. soldiers on their way home from west africa, where they have been helping in the fight, now under quarantine in italy. abc's linsey davis leading us off with the nurse who fought and won. >> reporter: tonight, nurse kaci hickox heading home to maine, after being confined to this
hospital tent for three days all because she worked with ebola patients in sierra leone. quarantined by new jersey even after she tested negative for the disease. >> i know she didn't want to be there. and so, i understand that. but the fact is, i have a much greater, bigger responsibility to the people and the public and so i think, when she has time to reflect, she'll understand that, as well. >> reporter: hickox landed in newark on friday. her temperature, 98 degrees. still, she was detained. grilled by officials. and four hours later, her temperature was up to 101. hickox says it was because she was so stressed. two hours later, she was transferred to that tent. you see her here, talking to her lawyer through thick plastic. inside, a medical bed in a bare bones room. saturday morning, her ebola test, negative. she described the experience to cnn as inhumane. >> and i feel like my basic human rights have been violated. >> reporter: this drama playing out shortly after dr. craig spencer was raced to a new york hospital. his fiance quarantined in their
harlem apartment. now, nine states ordering health care workers returning from the hot zone be quarantined for 21 days. tonight, the cdc releasing new guidelines that do not mention the word quarantine for returning health care workers. >> these very brave and courageous health workers, they welcome the kind of response to them when they come back that's at least based on scientific data. >> reporter: hickox will remain under quarantine in maine. here at bellevue, dr. spencer remains in serious but stable condition and david, some great news tonight. that 5-year-old little boy who was rushed to the hospital this morning with ebola-like symptoms, his test results are back, he does not have the disease. david? >> that is great news. linsey davis, thank you. let's get right to abc's chief medical editor dr. richard besser. and rich, you have said from the start that unless doctors and nurses were brave enough to go
to west africa, we would not get a handle on this, and yet this is the what happened to her when she came back. was this much ado about nothing here with her? >> reporter: well, i mean, the fear is that this would have a chilling effect and people wouldn't want to go over. but tonight, there's news out of the cdc. new guidelines with what to do with health care workers that come back. they focus on monitoring. they do not mention the word quarantine. we feel better when someone's under quarantine, it's not based on science. we don't need it to control the disease. >> self-monitoring now. >> reporter: that's right. >> rich, thank you. we're going to turn now to troubling new images tonight in the battle against isis. a new video showing a british hostage, but this time, a new backdrop. and these images containing clues about the brutal killers. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz has been studying the new tape and you were saying earlier that this is very bold. >> reporter: it is indeed, david. if this video is real, right in the middle of the battle for the strategic town of kobani, in broad daylight, on a rooftop, is the hostage, british journalist john cantlie, saying isis is about to claim the town. the video even purports to show aerial images from an isis drone pinpointing the location where
cantlie is being taped. and if you compare that with independent satellite views, you can see the same silver silos in the background, the same cluster of trees. if authentic, it appears cantlie is standing just .4 miles from the border, david. this, after more than 170 air strikes pounding kobani, part of an air campaign that has cost the u.s. taxpayers more than half a billion dollars. david? >> all right, martha raddatz live in our washington bureau. martha, thank you. now, to england tonight, and a security breach caught on camera and it was too close for comfort. take a look at this. british prime minister david cameron leaving a meeting today and a jogger bumping into him while on his daily run. cameron immediately driven from the scene. you can see the security team move in quickly. the man arrested and then released, claiming he had no idea who he ran into. critics want to know how he was allowed to get so close. back here at home and to that slow motion danger in hawaii. those incredible new pictures
tonight, 2,000-degree lava now just yards from one town on the big island. families fleeing their homes and abc's clayton sandell, back on the story tonight. >> reporter: they have watched. they have waited. and tonight, they are worried. for the first time, people living in the path of this river of fire are leaving. dozens more may soon be next. >> it's really scary. you got to be on alert. you got to be ready when they say, okay, you got -- you got two hours, you got to be out of here. >> reporter: the lava now less than 100 yards from homes. from above, you can see it sizzle through everything in its path. the people here are already watching their history being erased. dozens of headstones at the town cemetery now smothered under layers of molten rock churning at 2,000 degrees. officials say there is no way to divert a lava flow. the town must simply watch it follow the steepest part of the terrain, right into the heart of neighborhoods.
we saw it on a recent visit. this is the lava flow that's currently threatening the town of pahoa. as you can see, it's now burning all of these trees and shrubs here. really, nothing can stop this. if lava reaches the main road, thousands of people farther south will be cut off. new roads are quickly being built. a lava detour. and to try and keep the electricity on, they're installing new shields around power poles. >> i'm going to need to go, i think, but i don't want to go. i don't want to go. i do not want to go. >> reporter: tonight, they are holding their breath in a paradise that may soon be lost. clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> clayton, thank you. and from hawaii now to washington state, and that rampage at a high school. classes canceled this monday and tonight, what we are just learning about the shooter. a popular freshman and homecoming prince. what he did before opening fire. authorities say texting friends to join him at that cafeteria table and then taking aim at them. word of yet another victim dying overnight.
now bringing the death toll to two. abc's neal karlinsky, north of seattle. >> reporter: we now know that jaylen fryberg allegedly pulled a .40 caliber handgun at the school cafeteria and opened fire. not at random, but police say after inviting his best friends and relatives to the table via text message. killing zoe gallasso and gia soriano. and wounding 14-year-old shaylee chucknulnaskit and 15-year-old andrew fryberg, who remain critical. >> the five people that were targeted were invited to the table. >> reporter: megan silberberger, a teacher in her very first year on the job, is being called a hero from stopping jaylen from shooting anyone else. in a statement, she says she was "in an office next to the cafeteria and heard shots." she ran in and "confronted the shooter until security arrived." at marysville-pilchuck high school today, class is out, but students keep coming anyway. to mourn. do you and do they and your
friends -- is it sad snns sadness? is it anger? >> we're just sad. i'm not angry at anybody. i'm just sad. >> reporter: and inside a hospital room tonight, on twitter, forgiveness from shooting victim nate hatch, whose condition is improving. "i love you and i forgive you, jaylen. rest in peace." within the span of one week, jaylen went from homecoming prince to alleged mass shooter. there were vague signs of trouble over a girl on social media. but overall, he was beyond well-liked. >> he had that kind of charisma and raw talent. he was the pride of the family. >> reporter: school will be out here for the entire week and extra security has now been added to other schools in the area. as for motive, investigators say they may never know for sure. david? >> all right, neal karlinsky, our thanks to you again tonight. and we move on now and to the economy here. and welcome news for drivers across this country. the price of gas falling 15 cents in just two weeks. the average price per gallon of gas now down to $3.06. what's behind the free fall and how low will it go?
abc's cecilia vega now at a gas station in new jersey, where, believe it or not, the price is even lower than the average. cecilia? >> reporter: david, good evening to you. we haven't seen prices like these in four years. just take a look at this station here, $2.67 for the cheapest gas. analysts telling us today a majority of stations in the u.s. are now selling gas for less than $3 a gallon. these prices, they have been dropping since june. that is because of the declining price of oil. here's the map. take a look at it. san francisco topping the charts with the highest price in the country. drivers in albany, georgia, have the lowest. and analysts are telling us there could be even more good news for drivers tonight. that national average could fall below $3 a gallon. one analyst joking that stations like this one might not even have enough 2s in their drawers to make all the changes with the signs, because they haven't seen prices this low in so long. david? >> cecilia, thank you. the countdown is on to the midterm elections. it's your voice, your vote. just eight days to go.

earlier. we've seen second-term presidents with low approval ratings before. but you went digging for president bugeorge w. bush's schedule on this day back in his second term? >> reporter: that's right. and bush was even more unpopular than president obama, but on this day, eight years ago, he was out campaigning in two different states, traveling more than 2,000 miles and was out virtually every day in the home stretch. >> and jon, you heard me mention the stakes here for the president. the senate could flip. republicans are confident. how is it looking tonight? >> reporter: well, numbers guru nate silver, founder of 538, our analyst, he puts the percentage chance of republicans taking over at 63%. and i've got to tell you, david, privately, many democrats would say that's about right. >> all right, jon karl at the white house. and we will have complete election night coverage one week from tomorrow night, right here on abc. we do move on tonight to a mystery in colorado. this evening, authorities need your help finding the dad you see in this picture here. the photo taken during halftime at the denver broncos game four days ago now. family and friends enjoying the game. but then, the twist. his son goes to the bathroom and
returns, his dad had vanished. abc's brandi hitt now. >> reporter: tonight, friends and family are desperately searching for 53-year-old paul kitterman. the father of two mysteriously disappeared amid a sea of broncos fans at thursday night's game. kitterman's son jared had gone to the restroom during halftime. returning to his seat to find his father gone. >> we searched the stadium, we've been going to hospitals, gone back to the stadium, just retraced our steps, anywhere we think he might have gone. >> reporter: police say the event staff spotted kitterman inside mile high stadium during the third quarter. the last time he was seen. family and friends say kitterman, an outdoorsman, more comfortable on a ranch than the big city, also didn't have a cell phone, credit card or vehicle with him the night he disappeared. >> nothing out of the ordinary happened, so it wouldn't make any sense for him to go any place. >> reporter: but investigators say they have no reason to suspect foul play. that's not stopping family and friends handing out these flyers
tonight, hoping to find their beloved father and friend. brandi hitt, abc news, los angeles. >> brandi, thank you. and word this evening from pennsylvania. authorities there deploying a new weapon in the search for that cop killer, on the run for more than six weeks now. a helium balloon, unmanned, armed with cameras, on loan from the state of ohio. able to search the dense woods where the suspect is believed to be flying. unlike helicopters, it is silent. the suspect will likely not notice it as much as the helicopters. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this monday. turning your closet into cash. the real money team is here. the mother with one idea to resell the family's clothing. three simple steps to follow. one family making $1,200 in one year. you can do it, too. and coming up also, listen to this. >> get him out, now! pull! >> those are good samaritans breaking into a burning car. how they pulled that man to safety just in the nick of time. and later, you've got to see this. the star mangled banner at the world series.
