7:05 am
mh370 but perhaps making it clear this may not have been an accident. >> there are two scenarios that the end game of this flight, everybody was unconscious, the airplane went in at a steep angle. what we're seeing on the debris is something intact which opens the very chilling possibility that there was somebody alive, conscious and trying to land that airplane after it ran out of gas. >> reporter: it's early in the investigation and there are still conflicting theories about how this airplane may have gone down. investigators saying this morning they don't think that the suitcase is from mh370. it's not battered enough, but the wing part is encouraging, george? >> okay, jim, thanks. we go from that to two airline scares here, both at the dallas airport. the tire on one caught fire when it touched down. another flight evacuated because of smoke in the cabin. abc's clayton sandell has the story. >> reporter: this morning another day of triple-digit temperatures in dallas/ft. worth where airport firefighters were kept busy thursday with two scary scenes just hours apart.

7:07 am
put on leave. abc's tom llamas has the latest now from cincinnati. good morning, tom. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. the lawyer for that police officer tells abc news he was fielding calls from all over the u.s. from strangers who wanted to donate to help get ray tensing out of jail. it's unclear if they accepted any of that money but they did raise the necessary portion of that $1 million bond to get out. this morning, former university of cincinnati police officer, ray tensing, is a free man, bonding out of jail after more than 24 hours behind bars. tensing on a suicide watch while locked up. >> officers literally sitting in the unit with him, documents every ten minutes, we do that for high-profile prisoners when they come in. >> reporter: on thursday he appeared before a judge pleading not guilty. his attorney telling us he plans on fighting the charges. >> you understand you've been charged with one count of murder and one count of voluntary manslaughter. >> yes, your honor. >> reporter: tensing accused of killing 43-year-old samuel

>> you're not free to go right now. >> what are we doing then? what are we doing? >> you're being detained right now. >> reporter: two additional university officers who first responded to the shooting seeing their body cams here on paid administrative leave, as a result of the school's internal investigation. now, the university won't tell us what exactly those two officers did to be put on leave but we do know they made statements that don't exactly match what we see on their body cams. george. >> thanks, tom. we move to the race for president now. "your voice, your vote" and with less than one week to go before the first big debate jockeying and jabbing to make the cut and donald trump will be front and center. scrambling everyone's strategy. so let's bring in jon karl to break it down. trump says he's not a typical politician but he is playing that old expectations game. >> reporter: he sure is. trump wants you to know he has never been in a debate before and he is up against politicians who he says debate all the time, but even so, trump does not seem to be too concerned about preparing for the big event.
7:10 am
when you're a front-runner named trump you can afford a little detour. trump is spending a couple of days in scotland in the critical week before the first gop debate checking out a big tournament at one of his golf courses and taking a shot at hillary clinton. >> the world blew apart during her reign. now she wants to be president. >> reporter: shouldn't he be preparing for next week's big debate? >> as far as preparing for the debates i am who i am. i have never debated before. i'm not a debater. i get things done. >> reporter: trump is uncharacteristically downplaying expectations for how he'll do against his more experienced opponents. >> i have no idea how i'll do. maybe i'll do terribly. maybe i'll do great. >> reporter: others don't seem to know what to make of him. an aide to one of trump's rivals tweeting, imagine a nascar driver mentally preparing for a race, knowing one of the drivers will be drunk. that's what prepping for this debate is like." trump's rise left other republicans starved for attention and fighting amongst themselves.
7:11 am
the latest, ted cruz who came under fire for saying this -- >> the obama administration will become quite literally the world's leading financier of radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: now cruz is going after jeb bush. >> one of the reasons republicans keep getting clobbered is we have leaders like mitt romney and like jeb bush who are afraid to say that. >> reporter: and senator rand paul is the latest to take a shot at donald trump and his status and attention he's getting. rand paul referred to trump's front-runner status, quote, as a temporary loss of sanity. george. >> okay, thank you, jon. everyone is looking forward to that. of course there will be much more on this week's politics sunday on "this week." now to chilling new details on that movie theater shooting in lafayette. newly released surveillance video showing the gunman calmly walking through the theater just before opening fire.

7:16 am
>> namaste, back to you. >> thank you, dan. we turn now to that dramatic hot caress skew caught on camera. a little girl was left in the back of a van while her mother shocked. when the mother returned she was under arrest. abc's reena ninan is here with the story. >> good morning, believe it or not children's body temperatures heat up three to five times faster than adults and it only takes about 10 to 20 minutes for a car to heat up to a deadly temperature. this morning, new video capturing the chaos in this new jersey costco parking lot. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: bystanders discovering a toddler locked in this minivan alone while her mother shopped inside. officers in disbelief breaking the van's window to reach the crying 2-year-old. >> where are the parents? >> shopping. >> are you kidding me? >> reporter: before pulling the little girl out drenched in sweat. temperatures soaring into the upper 90s. >> soaking wet. >> i know. >> reporter: just moments later the child's mother approaches with another child and a
7:17 am
shopping cart in tow. >> is this your kid? you left her in the car. >> i'm sorry, sorry. >> no sorry. she could have died. >> reporter: the child taken to a hospital and later released to the custody of her father. just this year ten children died because they were left behind in cars. that's why many are taking matters into their own hands. last week in kansas a woman smashed a car window with a tire iron to rescue a 2-year-old girl. >> i was thinking when i hit the window, what if she dies? i thought i did what was right. i just kept hitting the window until it broke. >> reporter: earlier in kentucky watch as a man sees a child alone in the backseat. >> are you okay? >> reporter: then confronts the child's father when he returns. >> is that your kid in the back? >> yes. >> do you think that's a smart thing to do, buddy? >> reporter: as for that mother she was arrested and charged with child endangerment. with more and more situations like this four states recently passed what is called good samaritan laws that allows people to rescue a child from a hot car without facing legal challenges.

welcome back to "gma." time for the "heat index" and this morning's hot button. join me there. jetblue is creating a firestorm online. questions seating their toddler, the airline said they refused to follow the rules and dan abrams will rule in after aditi roy brings us the story. >> reporter: this morning a controversy in the skies is sparking outrage online after a family says they were booted off a jetblue plane over their 2-year-old's seating arrangements. >> we were treated like we were criminals. >> reporter: mona doshi says she and her family were flying from boston to baltimore. her son milin was fussy so she put him on her lap. a flight attendant came over to tell them the toddler needed to be in his own seat according to the flight rules. >> not even one minute later another stewardess came by and told me you need to keep him in his seat and i said i got it. you know -- she said what.
8:11 am
i said i got the lecture from the other stewardess and that just set her off. >> reporter: the doshis say they put milin in his own seat but noticed the plane turning around and taxiing all the way back to the gate where they were escorted off the plane. >> told us to collect our bags and marched us off the plane. >> reporter: the incident causing a firestorm on social media. one passenger sitting in front of the family tweeting the only effect it had was to make us all late and less enthusiastic about flying jetblue. another passenger tweeted disappointed in jetblue. jetblue airlines said if a customer is unable to follow federally mandated safety regulations, it is our crew's responsibility to put safety first and may accommodate those customers on a future flight. they were back home from their vacation. the controversy around their experience seems to be just taking off. for "good morning america," aditi roy, abc news, new york. >> let's talk about this with our legal analyst dan abrams. who knew how much power flight
8:12 am
attendants had? >> federally mandated -- the bottom line if it turned around because a 2-year-old was on a lap as opposed to a seat, that's awful. let's all agree that shouldn't have been the reason they turned around a plane. yes, flight attendants have a lot of autonomy and the airline's position is going to be this wasn't just about a child not properly sitting in the seat. this was because the parents got unruly. that the parents were aggressive i'm sure they're going to say in this context and that becomes the issue. the best advice someone can get, if you have a problem on an airline, do exactly what the flight attendants tell you to do when you're on the plane but the minute you get off, then you go after them. you can call the airline. you can threaten the airline. you can sue the airline. but they have so much power when you're on that plane that the minute they can say you misbehaved you're behind the eight ball.
8:13 am
>> i guess that would cut against the possibility of a lawsuit here by the family even though you say it's a possibility. >> a lawsuit is going to be tough. particularly again, because the airline is going to say you were unruly. that's the reason that we turned the plane around. look, typically the kinds of lawsuits you see are discrimination lawsuits right? someone saying that you know, they were kicked off a plane because -- >> they were too heavy. >> or their child had some condition or something. those are the kinds of lawsuits just to say the plane shouldn't have turned around isn't really grounds for a lawsuit or they mistreated us. probably isn't grounds for a lawsuit, again, because the flight attendants have so much power when you're on that plane. >> and they are responsible for safety. >> they are responsible. look i'm not minimizing the significance of it. but it sounds like based on everything we know they really didn't need to turn the plane around. >> let's go to lara. next up in the "heat index" dealing with those summer ticks,
8:14 am
insect repel apartments can keep you safe but many families want to stay away from products with deet. there are alternative and we put some to the test. hi becky. >> you may be headed into the great outdoors but it is peak tick season and these are more than just an annoyance with the threat of lyme disease they pose a significant health concern. ticks, nasty, tine think and in some places 25% of them carry lyme disease so keeping them off you and your kids is serious. traditionally deet has been the go to repellant but experts advised against using it on children in concentrations higher than 30% and many adults would prefer an alternative too so good news. >> deet is a common ingredient in tick repellants but in our tests we found there are two chemicals that work better and are safer than deet. >> reporter: in fact consumer reports top three products for repelling ticks consisted of only one with deet. the other two used lemon
8:15 am
eucalyptus oil and synthetic compound. we wanted to try for ourselves. >> we collected it this morning. >> reporter: a fordham university lab dr. tom dams preps 25 ticks. see how many are attracted to me without any repellant. i have no insect repellant on my arm. this is our control test. two on me now. four beelining for me. five minutes, five ticks. this is all without insect repellant. ew! so now we try the deet spray. five minute to ticks stayed on me. next a repellant with no deet. ox i have the lemon eucalyptus oil on. it's really shiny but it smells good. two ticks jumped on but both quickly jumped off. five minutes with a deet-free repellant, no ticks. next -- i used both my hands to test the other repellant so i'm using my foot to try the third one. they have not come anywhere near my foot. it's made to recentral pepper
8:16 am
plants is a go-to deet all alternative alternative. now, i was just back east with my kids and used these sprays to great success. no ticks at all but this is important. you do have to do a nightly tick check and if you find one attached twist it off and then watch for that tell-tale sign of lyme disease, that red bull's-eye rash fever, chill, feel like you have the flu. if you have any of those simms go see a doctor. a round of antibiotics can make a big difference in staving off many so of those debilitating effects of lyme disease, lara. >> i think those are great tips. i worry about the deet. >> becky went all out. >> all in often that one. >> not sure i would do that. >> bad version of the hokey-pokey. >> thank you, becky. also on the "heat index" this morning. ditching the dad bod. a new workout plan may be able to help you do it once and for

8:19 am
trainer and founder of body by mark. mark mark. you'll help us here. if you want to get in shape and don't have enough time what do you tell dads? >> well first of all, diet is the most important thing. without diet it doesn't matter how much exercise you're doing, so the biggest thing to remember if the food is packaged in a factory or processed and put this a box, get rid of it so that's the first and foremost thing? that's a tough thing. >> and now it's the exercise so there's three main exercises that are put together. that's going to work your whole body and elevate your heart rate. >> we have some very willing dads here who do not have dad bods at all but give them exercise if they want to firm up a little. >> great great so the first one we'll be doing, going to be lateral ice skaters. with lateral ice skaters it will elevate the heart rate and get blood moving through the whole body and take a big stride hopping to the left and right. do it for ten seconds. also's go. >> like you're hopping over a yoga mat into your butt.
8:20 am
>> you can do this anywhere right, mark. >> you can do it anywhere. in your living room. while your child is that napping. let's do more and rest. good so the next one is going to work your upper body but your core so we'll be down in push-up position now, after we do just a basic push-up you'll bring your right knee to your left elbow, down first, push-up and then bring that right knee across toward your elbow. you feel that working your abs. >> the last one in right now. >> bring the babies in for the last one so with this one you grab your child, be very careful. your child will think it's playing with it so fun. we'll sit down into a squat position here and smile at your baby then we'll press it up over your head right there so we're going to do these. do a total of ten of these right there. >> perfect, mark the great thing about these exercises they could be done at home. you don't have to have a gym membership. don't even need weights. thank you. something all the dads can do.
