7:03 am
abc's t.j. holmes in the arena for the historic game. t.j. was one on one with lebron overnight. hey, teej. >> reporter: cleveland's 52 year sports drought ended last night. we cannot believe what we saw last night. a historic comeback like the one the cavs had and also a player leading all players in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, lebron james did that in this series but his accomplishment goes way beyond his stat sheet. >> it's over! >> reporter: lebron james collapsed on the floor in tears, immediately after leading the cavaliers to their first-ever nba championship. the first major sports championship for the city of cleveland in 52 years. >> cleveland is a city of champions once again. >> reporter: lebron, an ohio native, was overcome with emotion to bring a championship home.

7:05 am
really kind of marinading on right now. >> irving drives and finishes. >> reporter: game seven was a doozy, close throughout. with spectacular plays and a little bad blood. but kyrie irving's fall-away three put the cavaliers ahead for good and sent the city of cleveland into a frenzy. after a hard-fought series with the weight of ohio on his shoulders, lebron still had something left in the tank. >> i'm exhausted. i'll tell you one thing, once i get back to cleveland, they'll give me a lot of energy. i can give it all back to them. >> congratulations. >> thank you so much brother. >> reporter: i begged and pleaded with the cavalierss to let me on their team charter. they left here headed back to cleveland but i didn't want to get on the charter for journalistic purposes. they took a bit of a detour, stopped in las vegas. why not?
7:06 am
they stopped to party it up. we have seen some of the pictures. don't know if they have made their way on to cleveland yet or if still partying. why not? but you have to remember folk, this is one of the great stories in sports with lebron james. just a few years ago people were burning his jerseys in the streets when he went to miami. what a difference a few years can make. guys. >> we'll have a lot more coming up here this morning and we could read your lips after the interview, please take me to vegas. t.j., thank you. we'll be checking in with you all morning long. all right, now we have some serious news, deadly heat, it's a heat wave in the west and southwest, 40 million people are under a heat warning as temperatures soar above 120 degrees. firefighters will battling wildfires in nine states now. abc's neal karlinsky is in phoenix this morning. good morning to you, neal. >> reporter: amy, good morning. not long before you start to
7:07 am
feel it each even at this early hour. it's over 90 degrees. later today this playground will be way too hot to touch. the conditions here seriously dangerous. this morning, the west is boiling over, a dangerous combination of excessive heat warnings and wildfires baking the region. in arizona and california, the extreme heat leaving firefighters with an unpredictable and dangerous forecast. overnight, firefighters working tirelessly to extinguish a fire erupting just outside of los angeles. fire department taking to the skies taking on a fire encroaching on the city. temperatures in palm springs and phoenix, reaching a scorching triple digits. in arizona, the heat turning deadly, claiming four lives. one 25-year-old man died after running out of water on a hike. >> we have had over a hundred calls of heat-related emergencies. >> reporter: we surveyed the temperatures on the ground
7:08 am
around phoenix. this slide is 185 degrees right now. 171 on this swing. careful with the door handle out in the sun, 146 degrees. remarkably even airplanes have been affected. airlines delaying some flights, at 120 degrees, the air creates lift problems for planes. at least one flight forced to turn back around to houston the pilot saying it was too hot to land. the warnings here today, stay indoors and stay hydrated. we sure are, amy. >> wow, incredible, neal. thank you so much. lot of people want to know how long this is going to last. let's head to ginger with what's next in the deadly summer weather. ginger is in sanibel island, florida. >> reporter: dozens of record highs were broken over the weekend. you can see the numbers, yuma, arizona, topped at 120. phoenix had its fifth hottest temperature, 118, only done that ten times in recorded history.
7:09 am
here's the answer to your question, the excessive heat warnings are on for at least the next 24 hours. if you're coastal, it will get a little cooler. look at the highs today, 123 palm springs. yuma at 115. vegas, 115. it's cumulative remember. when heat sticks around not only day overnight, 110 phoenix. even through the midweek. this could become still dangerous and deadly. much more later on why i'm here in sanibel, island. but for now let's head back to david. the race for the white house this morning. breaking news as we're on the air here in the west. from the donald trump campaign the republican nominee firing his embattled campaign manager, co cory lew andowsklewandowski. the statement saying that the campaign is grateful to cory for his hard work and dedication and wish him the best in the future. lewandowski was charged with
7:10 am
battery in march later dropped for allegedly grabbing a reporter during a trump camp pain event. here's abc's tom llamas on the trump campaign. >> reporter: in the wake of orlando massacre donald trump is doubling down on profiling muslims in america. >> i hate the concept of profiling but we have to use commonsense. >> and commonsense for trump means more guns in some cases like in that orlando nightclub. >> if some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here, right to their wasist or ankle, and this son of a [ bleep ] comes out and starts shooting and one of the people in that room happen to have it and goes boom, boom, you know what, that would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight. >> reporter: the nra seemingly not onboard with that idea. >> no one thinks that someone should go into a nightclub
7:11 am
drinking and carrying firearms. that defies commonsense. >> reporter: they're in talks over the candidate's comments to limit gun sales to people on the no-fly list and terror watch list. >> what they said and i understand that also, the second amendment, depriving them of those rights. and that it could be that people are on there that shouldn't be on, et cetera, et cetera. >> reporter: trump also dealing this week with talk of yet another republican cue against him. >> we won 36, 37 states. which is -- others won none. people that won none are saying maybe we can get something at the convention. doesn't work that way, folks. >> reporter: but house speaker paul ryan said he's not forcing anyone to support trump. >> the last thing i would do is tell anybody to do something that's contrary to their conscience. of course, i wouldn't do that. >> reporter: mocking the idea that he dropped out for the right price. >> for $5 billion, i guess we have to think about it, right.
7:12 am
>> reporter: trump sending out this tweet this morning, trying to clarify one of our statements from our story. trump said, when i said that if within the orlando club, you had some people with guns, i was obviously talking about additional guards or employees. >> tom llamas covering the trump campaign for us. good to see you in the flesh. >> you, too. let's go to abc's mary bruce for more on the high-stakes vote today on gun control happening on capitol hill. both republicans and democrats have proposals on the table, yes? >> reporter: that's right. the senate is going to finally act on gun control measures. nothing is expected to come of it. democrats and republicans agree, suspected terrorists shouldn't be able to purchase guns. that's pretty much where the agreement ends. democrats want to ban anyone on the so-called terror watch list from buying a gun. republicans, however, want a three-day waiting period to make sure the buyer is actually a suspected terrorist, meaning even though a majority of americans say they want stricter gun laws these measures are almost certainly doomed.
7:13 am
>> mary bruce. in the meantime the fallout from the orlando massacre, thousands gathering for that emotional vigil last night. there's more details about the shooter's actions before the killings and what a woman is saying this morning about his wife's troubles. linzie. >> reporter: good morning, david. we're learning more about the gunman's actions in the days and weeks ahead of the attack as investigators look into his family. new information about the killer's wife. this morning, more clues that omar mateen may have been preparing to die in his massacre at the pulse nightclub. abc news learning that just six days before the attack, mateen spent nearly $9,000 on jewelry at this kay jewelers just ten miles from his home. he did not pay cash.
7:14 am
the jewelry store telling abc news we will do everything possible to support them. abc news also learning that just two months before the shooting rampage mateen signed over his interest of this florida home he owned with his father for $100. >> if you're looking for noor, she's not here. >> this as this morning investigators continue to scrutinize the gunman's father and his wife noor salman. in an interview with abc news one of salman's former teacher stew san who asked us not to use her last name or show her face, tells us salman had learning difficulties and was in all special education classes. >> i just think that she wouldn't have any idea of the consequences of that would be. if she had an idea of the consequences would be, it just really didn't register. >> reporter: salman's family confirming that salman can't understand cause and effect. telling us over the phone she's
7:15 am
completely innocent and our hearts carry so much sadness for the victims in orlando. >> hold your candles as we remember who we lost. >> reporter: this, as the city tries to begin healing, holding a massive vigil for the 49 victims. >> it was not a group that was judgmental. we just danced. and everything was okay. >> reporter: some of them, david blanco's friends, regulars at the pulse. another display of defiance from an orlando united. and today, authorities will release partial transcripts of the gunman's communications with hostage negotiators during the three-hour standoff that night. amy. >> all right, linzie thank you for that reporting from orlando. two life guards in rhode island are being praised for their quick response, they rescued the pilot of this small plane. who ditched into the ocean to
7:16 am
avoid crashing into a crowded beach feet away. he was flying from new york to massachusetts when his plane lost power off a beach there. with the plane sinking fast, only the tail sticking out of the water, those life guards grabbed their surfboard and brought him on to shore safely and one of those life guards is just 18 years old and it was his first day on the job. >> wow. >> a job very well done. >> no kidding. no pressure. >> employee of the year on the first day. >> exactly. >> well done. a dangerous rescue under way this morning in the south pole. rescue crews battling 70 degrees below zero temperatures trying to reach a sick worker at a research station. abc's alex marquardt joins us. from our london bureau with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, it's hard to think of a more unforgiving place on earth to try to stage a rescue mission. the middle of the winter at the south pole, no sunlight, ice wind and snow and one small plane trying to land in the
7:17 am
middle of it all. the last person to be evacuated from here called it harder to reach than the international space station. a frozen landscape so forbidding, so remote n 60 years rescues have only been attempted twice. the mission to get to a worker at a research station who desperately needs medical care. >> the situation is serious that we don't have the capability of handling it on site. >> reporter: right now, it's the dead of the antarctic winter. dark 24 hours a day. temperatures averaging close to minus 70 degrees. at this temperature, jet fuel can freeze. so it's heated up for the two turbo prop twin otters that have been enlisted for the operation. with no runway at the research station they're also equipped with skis. the planes left canada and have arrived in southern chile waiting for a good weather window to fly on to antarctica. then just one will fly the final 1,500 miles to the south pole.
7:18 am
such a high-risk mission that in 1999 a doctor at the station who discovered she had breast cancer couldn't be rescued and treated herself with chemotherapy. >> i knew there was no way out for eight and a half months. >> now, if they are able to get the plane there, there's a second person who will be vac waited as well. we're not being told anything specific about their conditions. there's a bright moon that will provide some light for the crews trying to land that plane. let's get back to ginger on sanibel island for more on the weather. ginger. >> reporter: david, i may not have my toes in the sand for this weather report. we have to get serious, more than 40 reports of severe weather in the great lakes and the northern plains. you could see that soft ball size hail in minnesota. a quick look at the severe weather threat today, damaging wind and large hail. select cities now brought to you by las vegas.

7:31 am

7:32 am
the 27-year-old with corkscrew hair was known primarily for his role in the hugely successful reboot of "star trek," a third installment of which is out this summer. he was known in the industry as being intellectual as the russian character he portrayed. yelchin was found dead outside his home in l.a. studio city shortly after 1:00 a.m. sunday morning. when he didn't show up for a rehearsal, they went to his house and they found him pinned between his suv and this metal gate. you can see the bent bars. police believe he momentarily exited his jeep cherokee while pulling out of his steep driveway. police say the car was found in neutral. the vehicle apparently rolling back fatally pinning him against the gate. friends and colleagues in shock. kat dennings saying in a tweet can't say anything that conveys what this feels like.
7:33 am
"star trek" director tweeted you were brilliant, kind, funny as hell and supremely talented and you weren't here nearly long enough. missing you. yelchin was considered magnetic on screen. authorities not suspecting foul play but still investigating whether alcohol or substances had a role in this accident. he leaves behind his parents and several unfinished film project and just tragic 27 years old. moving on to other news the conviction in that brutal rape case out of vanderbilt university. a former football player found guilty on all counts. of the 2013 attack on a classmate. it's drawing comparisons to the stanford case. many say a top college athlete was left off too easy. but more on this case, abc's mara schiavocampo. >> reporter: the defendant in the vanderbilt case faces a minimum of 15 years in prison. compared to the stanford case of
7:34 am
brock turner getting just six months. with the case so similar, some are wondering why the sentences are not. a jury finds former vanderbilt university football player guilty in the rape of an unconscious woman in his dorm room nearly three years ago. 23-year-old brandon vanderburg found guilty on all counts of aggravated rape and sexual battery. that carries a prison sentence of 15 to 25 years. the victim close to vanderburg nodding in courtroom while the verdict was read. this moment three trials over three years. >> the next thing i remember is waking up in an unfamiliar room around 8:00 a.m. the next morning. >> reporter: the case grabbed national attention. after he and three of his teammates. were accused of sexually assaulting a fellow student in a college dorm room after a night of drinking.
7:35 am
convicted in 2015. but a judge declared a mistrial after one of the jurors did not disclose that he had been raped. the trial one of the first to highlight the issue of widespread sexual assaults on college campuses. earlier this month, outrage over former stanford swimmer brock turner sentenced to just six months in a county jail after being convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious. woman. >> alcohol played a big role in both of these cases. you had both girls who were unconscious because they had been drinking and both of the defendants used alcohol as an excuse as a part of their defense. >> reporter: now, vanderburg is still waiting for a sentencing date. the other players will be sentenced in july. the other two players allegedly involved are still waiting for trial. they both pleaded not guilty. let's get to dan abrams back with us this morning. he's not accused of physically
7:36 am
attacking the victim but encouraging all the others to do so. under the law is essentially the same thing. >> that's the same thing. that is rape under the law. he was convicted of multiple counts of aggravated rape. another defendant that was one of the ones who actually physically participated was only convicted of one count of aggravated rape. two different juries but the bottom line is under the law he's facing up to 15 years as aas a minimum. even though as you point out, he wasn't physically involved. the fact that he was allegedly the ring leader. he set this up. he encouraged this. that's legal -- >> 15 years minimum, does it depend on the state you're in. we have been covering the stanford case and brock turner. so much outrage he got a six month sentence. how could they be so different? is >> you can argue there are factual similarities. as a legal matter they're different. a, the state laws are different.
7:37 am
b, questions of what they can prove in the turner case which is different. in that case, he was facing a maximum of up to 14 years. prosecutors recommended six years. here, he's facing a minimum of 15 years. so, totally different cases. and i don't think there's any way he's going to walk away with less than a 15-year sentence. coming up next in our big board, zika, doping, is this the most troubled olympic games ever? why leonardo dicaprio is being ordered to court. plus nba champs in a history making comeback but will lebron stay in cleveland. our insider are back in just two minutes. our insider are back in just two minutes. carrying locally grown produce picked at peak of season freshness. can you guess who? and stocking shelves with

economy in peril, are the olympics in trouble? julie foudy joins us from the latest. we'll be there together in rio. there was a concerning headline out sunday. rio hospital coming under attack by heavily armed men to free a suspected drug trafficker, one of the hospitals recommended to tourists to use. how big is this? the safety part of the story. >> as you know every time we go into the olympics, we talk about the high drama and is the country going to be ready. sochi, for example, $51 billion spent to get that off the ground. i remember walking into the 2004 greek olympics with the u.s. soccer team and literally as we're walking into opening ceremonies they're laying down tile and making sure everything's ready. that's not new. in terms of whether a host city is ready. what's different with rio is you're seeing all these things compounded and they're all coming together.
7:41 am
you have an economic crisis a political crisis, you have the zika virus, you have water pollution issues and so, the governor of the host city is declaring a state of emergency, financial emergency seven weeks before the olympics that's never a good season. >> crazy, the zika concerns and you mentioned this hospital. quick question about the russian track and field team, what impact will that have on the american team. now they have been banned. >> the russian team in london had 18 medals, the track and field team, so, what that will mean the americans will have i'm guessing more medals at this olympic games. more americans in the finals. more americans with medals around their necks. i think that will be the impact on the medal count for the usa. >> julie, where are you by the way? >> paris. >> i was going to say, you're not in rio. some other beautiful place. >> that is the eiffel tower behind me.
7:42 am
we're here at the european championships for espn covering the men's soccer tournament. we'll move on to leonardo dicaprio who's going to court. ordered to testify in a lawsuit. by new york executive andrew green who alleges a character in the film reported to be fictional is modelled on him and characterizes him as a criminal. let's bring in sunny hostin, senior legal analyst. sunny, first of all, leonardo said, i don't want to testify i'm too busy. doesn't seem he's going to get around it this time. what do attorneys seem to get from him. >> this seems to be a fishing expedition. a lot of times, david, lawyers cast their lines and they dig around and they go, oh, look what i got, i caught leo dicaprio. i don't know how he's going to help green because he didn't write the screen play. he didn't portray the actor. the person who -- the person who portrayed the character was p.j. burn. why not depose him? they caught this big fish, this big fish isn't going to test good for dinner. leo is not going to help that at
7:43 am
all. >> sunny, somebody pointed out on our social scroll, they didn't use green's name in the actual movie. is there legal precedence for this lawsuit? >> not really. these defamation cases are really, really difficult to win. they're rarely winnable. although they didn't use green's name they did use a couple of things that kind of sound like green. green said, guess what, i wear a toupee. the character wore one. my nickname is wigwan. the character's nickname is rugrat. i'm a lawyer, the character's a lawyer. he said the drugs and the crime and the women, not wasn't really me. that's kind of a tough argument to make in court. we'll see what happens. but rarely, rarely winnable these kind of cases. >> sunny, thanks so much. speaking of watching, we were all watching last night, lebron james leading the cleveland cavaliers to their first-ever nba title. the first the city of cleveland had in 52 years. this is absolutely an historic comeback.
