♪ head with hair take a look at this baby bombshell wowing the world with this head of hair. but there's another surprise in store when the family joins us live this morning. we do say good morning america, on this friday morning. great to have amy back from brussels and we have breaking news. police operations are under way right now and, amy, you really saw a city on edge. >> yes, everywhere you looked there were heavily armed police presence and military. the most unnerving part was getting out because the airport there closed through saturday, at least, so everyone packing into those train stations trying to get to paris or amsterdam and the level of security there was unprecedented. every article of clothing looked through. we were patted down just to get into that train station to leave, understandably a city on edge and they are taking every precaution.
7:02 am
>> as they should. >> of course, there are concerns in paris, as well, where arrests have been made too and just learning two americans have been killed in those attacks in brussels. secretary of state john kerry is there this morning where seven people were detained overnight as the massive manhunt continues for two terror suspects still on the run. abc's alex marquardt is in brussels with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. there have been new police raids this morning to try to prevent new attacks and to capture those two suspects who are still on the run. this country is still reeling from those attacks, the identities of the dead have not yet been confirmed and among those unaccounted for are several americans. overnight, belgian anti-terrorism police carrying out raids in the neighborhood where tuesday's attackers stashed their bombs. across brussels, seven detained. their links to tuesday so far unclear. this as the manhunt continues for two of the five attackers still on the loose.
7:03 am
this man in the black hat seen on an airport surveillance camera with the two suicide bombers and another man spotted in the metro with the other suicide bomber. this morning, disturbing new images of the bombmaking safe house. detectives finding few items left behind but did find over 30 pounds of explosives, a suitcase of nails and screws and an isis flag. and overnight, just outside paris, a police raid on an apartment. the bomb squad on the scene. french media now reporting that weapons and explosives were found inside. they were led there after arresting this man, france saying he was tied to the paris attacks mastermind in the advance stages of plotting a high-level attack. these were belgium's worst ever terror attacks. this new video taken seconds after the two blasts at the airport. fires and screams. belgian prime minister saying the liberty of daily life was slaughtered but amid signs of intelligence failures, he rejected the resignation of both his justice and interior
7:04 am
ministers. belgian officials have claimed that the bakraoui brothers both suicide bombers on tuesday were not known for their links to terrorism. but one of them, ibrahim, one of the airport bombers was deported by turkey for being a foreign terrorist fighter. a warning sent to belgium which they now admit they ignored. and khalid was wanted for his ties to the paris attacks. now the new chilling revelations that it was these brothers who secretly recorded a top belgian nuclear scientist coming and going from his home using a hidden camera to film him, ten hours of video discovered. their goal unclear. but western officials have long feared that isis might try to build a dirty bomb. belgium has now dropped its terror alert level to its second highest level but that means they still believe that an attack is serious and likely. secretary of state john kerry will today be holding meetings to discuss security issues but will also be showing american
7:05 am
support for belgians. >> thank you. we want to turn to abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz with more on those so-called dirty bombs. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the fears of a dirty bomb which would combine explosive material like dynamite with radioactive material are very real and intensified after 9/11. in fact, many new york city police officers have radiation detection devices on them in the case of the brothers in brussels, experts say they may have been planning to kidnap the scientist to help build the device or threaten his family to try to force him to get radioactive material, robin. >> very, very disturbing. we want to note dirty many bos are not the same as nuclear bombs. >> no, they're not. a nuclear bomb is millions of times more powerful and causes a nuclear explosion not a conventional explosion, so the immediate death toll would be
7:06 am
contained to the blast area of the bomb but the radioactive material could contaminate an area even miles from the explosion, making it uninhabitable and, of course, the psychological effects of detonating a dirty bomb, robin, would be enormous. >> yes, that's true. martha, thank you so much. george. >> thanks, robin. earlier this morning i spoke with mason wells one of the victims of the brussels attack. he's in bandages this morning and he amazingly survived three terror attacks. how are you feeling today? >> well, i'm feeling better than yesterday if that's worth anything. i'm feeling better. >> that's progress right there. i know your injuries have been significant. when do you expect to be released. >> after talking to the doctors, there's no way right now to really put a date on how long my recovery will take. expected to take a bit of time but i feel confident in those who are taking care of me doing a really good job. >> good you have confidence in them. we hope it's speedy. take us back to that moment in the airport.
7:07 am
what do you remember? >> i was actually conscious for like all of it and through the hours after with the bombs, and the blasts were really loud. really loud. i remember being picked off the ground and really hot and cold sensations on my body. i saw fire on my face and in front of me. perhaps how close i was, i was very lucky to escape with the injuries that i have right now. >> amazing and your parents tell us that despite those burns, you were calm through all this, even maintained your sense of humor. how did you do that? >> i think that there's only one person that could have helped me stay as calm as i did and that would be god and the peace in me, the calm that i was able to
7:08 am
feel, it was something that was beyond just a physical shock to my body. >> your faith sounds so strong and now you've been on the scene as we said. you were on the scene of the boston marathon bombings and in paris during the paris attacks and now this. how do you wrap your head around that coincidence? >> something my parents always told me that everything happens for a reason and i don't know why i was in those places. i've been in places when things happen. i would have the feeling is that i believe that god's plan is a lot bigger than maybe we imagine. my faith is something that's my whole life. it's something that i build upon and through experience and know why i was where i've been, i don't know.
7:09 am
i do know that through it all i have been taken care of and by incredible people that have supported me and i'm so thankful for all those people from a young age even that have been such good mentors. >> well, mason, we're supporting you as well and glad you're on the mend and thank you for joining us this morning. >> no problem. >> that is one strong young man. >> you said it best. his faith remains very strong. to the race for the white house and war of words over wives. ted cruz attacking donald trump for retweeting this image, a picture comparing his wife with trump's and abc's jon karl has the latest and joins us from washington. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. ted cruz is now saying to donald trump, leave my wife the hell alone. >> it's not easy to tick me off. i don't get angry often. but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kid, that'll do it every time.
7:10 am
donald, you're a sniveling coward and leave heidi the hell alone. >> reporter: ted cruz reacting to something donald trump had retweeted. an unflattering photograph of heidi cruz next to a glamour shot of melania trump. the images are worth a thousand words. megyn kelly who has had other own run-ins with trump over allegations of sexism reacted on twitter with a single word. seriously? this whole bizarre episode began when an anti-trump super pac launched this attack on melania trump, featuring a photo from her days as a model. trump responded by blaming cruz, tweeting, be careful, lying ted or i'll spill the beans on your wife. of course, trump has been under fire for the way he speaks about women from the start of the campaign. >> bimbo. >> dog. >> reporter: this ad features women reading actual quotes from donald trump. ted cruz hasn't said much about trump's controversial words on women until now. >> donald does seem to have an issue with women.
7:11 am
donald doesn't like strong women. strong women scare donald. real men don't try to bully women. >> reporter: trump says he, quote, cherishes women. >> i respect women incredibly. i had a woman who was in charge of the building of trump tower many years ago before it was even thought -- before anybody would have even thought of it and did a fantastic job. >> reporter: the woman who helped build trump tower, barbara res wrote a book called "all alone on the 68th floor." >> he was respectful of me and the other women. he had several very strong women working for him. i think that the donald i see now is very disrespectful to women. he's disrespectful to a lot of people. >> reporter: all the controversy surrounding trump's comments on women seems to be taking a toll. in one national poll this week, only 26% of women voters said they have a favorable opinion of trump. a whopping 67% say they view him unfavorably and, george, if
7:12 am
trump doesn't find a way to bridge that gender gap it would be virtually impossible to win a general election. >> okay, jon, let's talk about this more with kristen solis anderson in washington this morning. so far he's been teflon with so many of these comments. is this one going to hurt him? >> at this point donald trump is already so close to the republican nomination, he already has so many delegates that it's really hard to see him getting completely thrown off track. but even half of republican women have an unfavorable view of donald trump and this sort of thing going after your opponent's wife, not on an issue position she's taken but on something like her looks is really beyond the pail and i think it's got a lot of women and men thinking is this the way we want our president to treat women. >> and the question would be, you know, you mentioned what's happening in the republican primaries. if, indeed, he did get the nomination as jon karl just pointed out could lead to a massive gender gap in a general election. >> that's right. hillary clinton has made clear
7:13 am
she believes being the first woman president gives her a big leg up when it comes to winning over female voters. she's had some weakness among younger women in some of these primaries but if donald trump's the republican nominee, it's pretty clear she's going to win a large portion of female voters if she's the democratic nominee in november. >> kristen soltis anderson, thanks very much. >> to the severe storms and flooding down south. pounding rain making a messy commute. in florida, take a look at this, the dugout at florida atlantic university in boca raton. totally swamped. players wading through the water and ginger has much more on the storm. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to you, robin. it's that same storm that is creating thunderstorms later for the northeast here but all the way down to florida, kicked off the storms, almost a half foot of rain in parts of southeast florida and severe storms, the count, almost 40 from texas to florida this morning. >> cars are literally sinking here. >> reporter: a wet and wild scene in florida.
7:14 am
aggressive rains dumping at least five inches in boca raton. flooding the streets, slowing down highways, filling this dugout with water. baseball players taking cover. from texas to florida, damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour. thunderstorms diverting at least 187 flights from atlanta's hartsfield-jackson airport. an ef-1 tornado stripping the roof from this home and in kansas a state of emergency. >> the fire started coming up the driveway and we couldn't leave. >> reporter: wildfires scorching at least 273,000 acres, firefighters only containing 15% of the flames. and at this hour we've already seen severe thunderstorm warnings in florida this morning. the severe storms still possible for the northern and central parts of that state. as you move up the cold front look at that squall line moves through new york city later afternoon into the early evening hours, we'll deal with that. freezing rain happening in new england for parts of vermont through maine. for now back to robin and
7:15 am
george. >> all right, ginger. we go to amy as we said great to have her back from brussels. she has the morning's other top headlines beginning with an entire town being evacuated. >> that's right. a town in western minnesota has been evacuated after a freight train hit a tanker truck carrying propane setting off this massive explosion. the driver thankfully escaped but two people on the train were injured. hundreds of people have been told they will not be allowed back boo their homes until at least noon today. >> also breaking overnight new video of an american arrested in north korea. kim tong chol was reportedly detained back in october accused of spying for south korea. just last week north korea sentenced a student from ohio to 15 years of hard labor. as millions of americans hit the road for the holiday weekend gas prices are on the rise. the national average price at the pump now tops $2 per gallon for the first time since last year. and remember the days when you rented movies from a video store? well, a guy in north carolina
7:16 am
remembered the hard way. james meyers pulled over for a broken taillight the other day when to his surprise he learned there was actually a warrant out for his arrest. he was taken into custody and here's why. back in 2002 he apparently rented a tom green movie and never returned the vhs tape. tom green heard about it and now promising to pay the fine but no word on how much that will be. the video store, by the way that he forgot to return the tape to shut down like nearly a decade ago and he doesn't know where the tape is so that's a really painful lesson. >> who knows where any tape is? >> exactly. >> and now we'll remember garry shandling. the comedian who created a new kind of tv show and became a household name with "the larry sanders show" is being celebrated with friends and fans and a look back at his greatest hits and a gift for making so many laugh. >> this is first time so make him feel welcome. would you welcome garry
7:17 am
shandling. >> reporter: he did stand-up comedy. >> thank you. wow, that's very nice. i'm so excited to be here. i had a great day. i went to the bank earlier today and have you gotten your free pen yet. these are free. >> reporter: he sat in for johnny carson on "the tonight show." >> i still love you. >> you want to watch the show together tonight? ♪ >> reporter: he starred in a self-titled sitcom. >> no, no, i know, i know. i'll show you my photo album. >> you know, i feel like i'm on "gilligan's island." i can't get off this date. >> reporter: but what garry shandling will be remembered for most is the "the larry sanders show." >> oh, you could be the sour booker. >> why? >> huh? >> why am i the sour booker? >> it's just a character. >> whatever. >> reporter: he starred as the dysfunctional, narcissistic host. >> what's my name again? >> all: larry. >> reporter: why were we ready for a show that embraced that awkwardness? >> i was determined to make sure
7:18 am
we explored the human psyche. and now and then i would get a call from one or more of the actual talk shows on saying, that actually happened. did somebody tell you that? >> reporter: one of his last appearances with jerry seinfeld earlier this year on the web series comedians in cars getting coffee. >> what i want at my funeral is an actual boxing referee to do a count and at five just wave it off and say he's not getting up. >> reporter: fondly remembered this morning for his comedic integrity, an inspiration to so many. >> thank you. >> reporter: for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, los angeles. >> so funny. >> yeah, you saw him crack jerry up and comedians loved him. now back to ginger with that rain. >> oh the rain in florida but we will talk more about that northeastern and new england storm. first your local forecast brought to you by the weekend getaways by walmart.

welcome back to "gma." you're looking at new video, police raids in belgium overnight and we have breaking news this morning. we've just learned at least two americans were killed in those terrorist attacks as authorities continue their hunt for two suspects still on the run. also right now, the south recovering from severe storms overnight. pounding rain has led to a pretty messy commute in florida. the storms now weakening but still could produce gusty winds and heavy rain in the southeast. and rolling stones getting ready for a huge concert in cuba tonight. putting on a free one and mick jagger is greeting everyone in spanish when he landed and says he's happy to be on the island. also this friday morning, we all know. you've got a great head of hair. that's real. it's all his. take a look at this. take a look at this baby. 2 1/2 months old, 2 1/2 months old. little baby izzy.

>> that's a girl. >> that's a girl, yes. 2 1/2 months and getting so much reaction online and we're going to talk to the proud mama and papa coming up. >> she looks like elvis. don't you think? >> she looks pretty calm too. we're going to begin though with that drug bust of a flight attendant caught trying to smuggle nearly 70 pounds of cocaine through airport security. authorities charged after she was selected for a random security check the flight attendant ditched her bags and ran. abc's david kerley has the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. ditched her bag and ran and apparently flew to new york the next day talking about $3 million street value of cocaine that she allegedly was trying to get through security. caught on security cameras at l.a.x., authorities say this flight attendant fled barefoot leaving her bags in which this nearly 70 pounds of cocaine was found. the former jamaican beauty queen's family came to her defense. >> not fully aware of what was in the bag. >> reporter: saying in court
7:32 am
documents she became nervous when officers asked to search her suitcases. this alleged cocaine caper started friday when the jetblue attendant showed up in street clothes at a known security checkpoint. after flashing her i.d. she was randomly selected for a secondary search. nervous she got on her phone, was speaking in a foreign language, had to be told to keep up with the tsa officer as they walked to the secondary search area. when that officer was getting ready to search, reynolds, a former track runner at nyu reportedly kicks off her heels bolting down the up escalator and out of the terminal before authorities could find her she flies to new york on the loose for five days. >> she turned herself in because i think she realized that that was the right thing to do. >> reporter: reynolds is expected to be released on $500,000 bond later today. but authorities have made it clear they are looking for a co-conspirator.
7:33 am
still, the former beauty queen, track running flight attendant will be walking out of jail with an ankle bracelet suspended from her job and facing charges of possession with intent to distribute. that flight attendant will be in court again today to see if she can be released later today with that bracelet on her ankle and, robin, if she is convicted, up to ten years in prison. >> that's right. all right, david, thank you. now to a murder mystery, a husband on trial after his wife died from a gunshot wound at home. her death was initially ruled a suicide but years later, new evidence emerged leading authorities to charge her spouse. abc's clayton sandell has that story. >> reporter: new year's day, 2012, ashley fallis lays dying from a gunshot wound to her head and husband calling 911. >> please, help me. please help me. >> reporter: only hours earlier, the couple dancing in the new year. five separate law enforcement agencies ruled her death a
7:34 am
suicide. the case closed. >> the forensic analysis done did not support any indication that tom was in proximity of ashley when the shot was fired. >> reporter: but this morning tom fallis, a former colorado corrections deputy is on trial for her murder. a grand jury investigation opened in 2014 when new witness statements emerged. one neighbor claiming he overheard fallis confessing the murder to his parents. something they later denied in court. >> he proceeded to say i shot my wife. >> reporter: fallis is charged with second degree murder. >> i didn't shoot my wife. i don't want her gone. i want her here. >> reporter: his lawyer telling jurors the mother of three was unstable. >> it was determined to be a suicide in 2012 and it's still a suicide in 2016. >> reporter: and that she had even written a suicide note the summer before her death.
7:35 am
>> dear tom, i'm sorry the trouble i have caused. i'm not happy about it. i'm sorry for your pain but i can no longer go on living this life. >> reporter: the prosecution claims that new year's eve night tom fallis had become irate with his wife the two in a heated argument just before she died. >> no one noticing her being anything other than happy and excited and now she's dead. >> he has pled not guilty. for "good morning america" clayton sandell abc news, denver. >> we'll bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams for more on this. dan, it goes from being a suicide to a homicide. how is the trial going right now? >> well, for prosecutors this is a tough case. you're talking about a case where they have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt and the evidence that they have, one or two people saying that they heard what sounded like a confession, him seeming angry at a party the night before, et cetera, i mean, together this is a maybe, you know, this is
7:36 am
possibly but proof beyond a reasonable doubt, i think the prosecution has a serious uphill battle here because even the physical evidence, i mean, you had a crime scene specialist come in and say that based on what you saw at the crime scene it didn't look like there was a struggle at all. so i think this is a tough case. >> we heard in clayton's report that ashley's mental health is being called into question. how do you think that will play out. >> that's the defense. the defense is going to say that she had actually written what seemed like suicide notes before. that she was on antipsychotic drugs that this is someone who committed suicide. i mean, that is the heart of the defense here. >> there is a civil suit case pending. ashley's family has filed against the police saying in essence because he, the husband, was a former corrections deputy that law enforcement was protecting one of its own. how will that suit possibly play. >> it's a new police department who is actually leading the case at this point. but it does make it even tougher for prosecutors, right. because you had the victim's family who typically are aligned
7:37 am
with the police now sort of saying the police messed this up. the police made all these mistakes. and that's not helpful either for the prosecution in a case like this. so you got a lot of challenges in this case. >> sure do. all right, dan, thank you. okay, thanks, guys. coming up here microsoft in damage control mode after an experiment with artificial intelligence goes wrong. what their robot said that is causing so much outrage. a new study linking caffeine to miscarriages. the everyday drinks that could cause trouble. we'll talk about that coming up. come on back. nians live in our own reality. with our heads in the clouds. like a bunch of space cadets. huh? what? i've drawn a blank. what's my line?

7:42 am
programmed to engage in conversations on twitter and to learn from each interaction tay got a crash course in vulgarity and quickly became a pr nightmare for microsoft. hello, world. @tayandyou first words 8:14 wednesday morning promising the more you talk the smarter tay gets. microsoft designed her software to mimic the speech patterns of 18 to 24-year-olds, tweet to tay and the bot tweets you back but it did not take long for internet trolls to poison tay's mind. soon tay was ranting about hitler, one twitter follower asking did the holocaust happen, tay replied, it was made up launching racist and anti-feminist attack, some of them so rude we can't even show you them. one critic tweeted microsoft, you didn't anticipate this? said another, what did they expect it would learn from social media? parents, take note. >> you build the frankenstein

8:05 am
a flaw in this study. researchers noted some of the people surveyed may have lied about their natural hair color and as i throw it back to robin, another incredibly intelligent blond, we would never lie about our hair. >> no, never, never, amy. never. thank you so much. >> i'm going to stay so far away from this story. i feel like just getting way off set. >> you were leaning out of it. you didn't want anything to do with it. but we have a big health headline for you now. heart disease, the leading cause of death among women. now a new report reveals that mammograms primarily used to screen for breast cancer may also one day help diagnose heart disease. abc news chief women's health correspondent dr. jennifer ashton is here to explain. so please do. >> good morning, robin. so basically this study was based on two observations, one, that women having routine mammograms are often found to have calcium in the arteries in the breast, and the second that heart disease is associated with calcium deposits found in the coronary arteries, so in this
8:06 am
study, they looked at just under 300 women having c.a.t. scans, ct scans of their chests and compared it to mammograms. let me show you what they were looking at. you'll see these are normal blood vessels in the breast. this is a ct scan of the heart. if you look at this image, this big white here is calcium deposits in the breast artery. here you see calcium deposits in the coronary arteries, and the findings of this study were significant. they found that the two were associated, so the thinking is can we one day look at calcium found on a mammogram and predict risk of heart disease? >> but it's not uncommon to be told that you have calcium deposits when you have a mammogram. >> exactly and, by the way, that's a really different calcification. tiny flecks or micro or macro calcifications and they occur all over our body, often normal part of aging, in the valves of the heart, placenta. they occur in fibroids.
8:07 am
>> so it's not always a bad thing. >> absolutely, correct. so it has to be interpreted in the right clinical context. >> so break it down for us. when you see the headlines saying that mammograms could lead to be able to detect heart disease -- >> we are not there yet. it's not ready for prime time. it needs a lot more study. but, again, what i like about this is a wholistic type of thinking, meaning if you look at something and see it on one part of the body could it indicate something going on in another part of the body and we know that heart disease is the number one killer of women so being able to predict that risk is very important. >> another big health headline saying there may be a link between caffeine and fertility. >> this is going to get a lot of attention, robin, and this was actually an interesting study because it looked at behavior before conception and early in pregnancy at both men and women and their intake of caffeinated beverages, so not just coffee but energy drinks and sodas and found those couples men and women who consumed three or more caffeinated beverages a day had a higher chance of early
8:08 am
pregnancy loss. now, again, we have to interpret this with caution. generally 200 milligram, two cups of coffee while pregnant is fine but this is significant because it's the first time that it shows that what men do can impact and behavior before conception can also have an impact. >> that's a big deal. >> we'll be following it but as i say, if pregnancy were that fragile, the human race would have ceased to exist a long time ago so we should just be cautious. >> you know very well with all that you do. all right. jen, thanks very much. you'll be taking some questions as always on twitter and facebook throughout the morning. >> now over to jesse with the "morning menu." >> thanks, robin. here's a look at what's coming up on "gma morning menu." the bride says no to "say yes to the dress" opening up exclusively on "gma" about why she took the reality show to court. and a woman who's hoping to wear a wedding dress soon, bachelorette jojo fletcher giving us clues about the new season. and, of course, our interns here learning what it's like to
