traveling far too fast. the little child you see here was crying nonstop. mom couldn't figure out what was wrong. grandma couldn't either. it was like finding a needle in a hay stack when they took the child to the doctor and figured out, they ran an x-ray, there was a needle in the child's belly. >> oh, my gosh, how did it get there? >> according to reports, the grandma was sewing so she had laid a needle on the table. he grabbed the needle and put it in his own belly. it was probably a combination of it getting stuck in his clothes and then on the table which the needle ended up going through his belly and through his stomach cavity. >> did they have to do intensive surgery to get that out? >> oh, absolutely. >> it could perforate the stomach and intestines.
>> it must have gone deep for them to do that. >> yes, this was a very serious case. they did have to intervene surgical surgic. fortunately, the were able to take it out and the child will be just fine, but mom and grandma were blown away at how quickly something that seemed so silly and simple created such a big problem for their child. and there's a second video where you see the baby at the hospital post-op. and don't worry, he's going to be just fine. >> the kid was just trying to sew up his belly button. we talk about it often, the adventure thrill-seekers. >> there are consequences. >> of course it is all fun and games until it's not. sudsenly, they've got company. >> somebody is not happy to have them there. >> that's one of the construction workers k. y. can you imagine? they are playing out on what they are trying to build. >> these guys can climb and jump
over anything. >> nay are having a good time trying to escape. they are still getting a video out of it. >> this running back was forwards. they are like confused rats right now. >> they are in a maze because, again, they didn't expect to get caught. here you see this dude on a ledge, he jumped down to another ledge, they jumped down onto another floor. >> there's no way they are going to get caught. >> there are too many of them going in nine different directions. their footsteps must sound like thunder throughout the building. >> honestly, these guys are probably just enjoying it. they are being chased around by security, get away, it's the story. >> cat and mouse. >> and quite the adrenaline rush. here you see them jump down to another floor. >> that looks set up. >> that was very fortuitously placed, that jumping pad. >> i wonder if it's a set-up to get a good video out of it. was that guy really a security guard or just another one of them? >> one of them said they got arrested. >> however, we didn't hear that from the police. this continues to be them adding
more mystic to their video in hopes it gets out there more. >> while it seems like a game or funny, it's not funny to law enforcement or fun or funny to the construction workers or the people paying for all of it. dating back to the time of ancient greek, humans have had a special relationship with the dolphins. but this one got sketchy in australia. you see a pod of dolphins along the coast and the surf on the surfboard, watch what happens. >> oh! did he get him? >> oh, he got him all right. listen to this. >> i hit him. >> it starts to give way. >> sam says he was uninjured but it hit him on the head, shoulder and back. after that happened, he said, the dolphins seemed to communicate with each other like, watch out for that guy up there. >> that's crazy. >> it is crazy. but kind of cool for him that he wasn't hurt and got real up

street does have a gun. people did see it. this is also being treated as if it's a possible explosive incident although we have not heard anything go off at this point in the last 20, 30 minutes. beat officers are currently being brought in from other parts of the city, we're told, to try to control the crowd and keep people out and keep people safe. if you're in that area, do not go out there into the street right now as police try to resolve this situation. they are considering it a very dangerous situation. they are telling people to shelter in place. that applies to the people -- many many people in the many many businesses that would normally be operating on busy valencia street between 16th and 18th right now in san francisco. s fpd did tweet a couple different times.

we saw officers going door-to-door to the businesses and homes on that street, valencia, to tell people to stay safe and stay inside. right now, this is one of the tweets we've been talking about from san francisco police. you can see officers there with the binoculars, taking a close look at the building in question. the crisis hostage negotiations team creating time and space, time and distance, that is, in an attempt to apprehend the suspect with a peaceful outcome. creating time and distance, suggesting not just barging into that building where the man is believed to be holed up but perhaps just giving him the time and the distance to meantime talk to him to try to get him to surrender voluntarily. right now, let's show you video, pictures sent by rebecca pierce
at a restaurant on valencia. she captured pictures of officers talking and looking tense and going to the different business storefronts checking on people as they figure out what's going on with the armed suspect who has barricaded himself in on 16th and valencia. a shelter in place has been ordered and sky 7 giving us an aerial view. that intersection is totally locked down, no cars passing through, and you see officers walking around. no pedestrians. this is an area with lots of residences as well as businesses. they do believe an armed suspect is inside the building. he has barricaded himself inside and obviously police have an interest in making sure that people stay out of any possible line of fire.
so we're looking at the scene right there. some people should get out of the street if they're civilian, what police are saying right now. several officers are there. we are seeing more and more patrol cars in the last 10 minutes. we understand beat officers are being brought in from other parts of the city to assist with any type of crowd control. looks like they're doing a pretty good job of that. right now, an officer from sfpd is joining us by phone. we appreciate your time. this is just unfolding, if you the latest what's happening there and whether people need to stay inside right now. >> that's correct. right now, the incident is still developing and we have units on
scene, sfpd resources such as hostage negotiations and crisis teams cryitrying to create the outcome and apprehend the suspect. we have a barricaded suspect with a firemen. shortly before 2:00 p.m. this afternoon we received a call about a person with a firemen. that person with a firearm has now bear ca-- barricaded themselves on the 500 block of valencia. a perimeter has been set up and we have request eed businesses d shelters to stay in place. we're asking for people to stay away from the area due to the traffic congestion. >> officer, this is really important. i'll ask you this question. we did see chopper shots of officers appearing to be on a
roof. do you want us to not show that from a tactical perspective? >> that's correct. >> sky 7 chopper avoid showing officers on the roof. we want to get that squared aquickly. also, want to ask you, people called in and saw the report of the firearm. is there any report this man fired the weapon? >> not csure. can't confirm the sex of the suspect and we don't have any reports of the firing of the firearm. we don't have reports of anyone injured at this point or anyone barricaded with that suspect. we have our hostage negotiations team there to handle the situation. that's not because we have information regarding a hostage. >> have you made contact with the suspect yet? >> i can't confirm that information at this point. >> is that in fact a single room
occupancy hotel? >> i can't confirm the location of where the suspect is barricaded at this point. >> okay. but is it one building you're zeroing in on? >> it is one building we're z o zeroing in on, however, due to the fact that we have our officers in multiple locations and on rooftops, which we're hoping that we don't display on your live feeds, that it doesn't compromise the tactical operation that's under foot right now. >> absolutely. that is vital. we do also see ground shots of officers running around on valencia. are they going around trying to insure people are staying inside, getting out of the street? >> we are doing a number of things for areas that we feel is best to have residents shelter in place. we're doing that. and in areas we feel it should
be evacuated, we're having those officers advise those people as well. >> can you talk a little bit about what types of businesses and what kind of residences are in that two block area? >> sure. this is a very dense area in the mission district where there are offices and restaurants and markets as well residencies from apartment buildings to -- like you mentioned, single residents occupancy, a highly dense areas. this is affecting a number of people, a lot of people that go through this area with b.a.r.t. close by. and it being on a friday afternoon, people are going to
want to start their weekends on such a beautiful day. unfortunately, this is impacting the whole area due to the incident. >> can you talk a little bit about the police presence? obviously, you have beat officers in that area, but anybody else coming in to assist? >> sure. i can't really speak to any resources from outside the mission district. it's possible we have requested additional resources. our hostage negotiations team has been called to the scene as well as specialized units to help lock down the perimeter. the mission is a business police district as well. so those calls for service also have to be handle. aside from handling this very important incident. >> just one last question for you. i know you have a lot more work
to do. in terms of your tactic with the suspect right now, are you taking more of a wait and see approach or do you anticipate officers will be making a move towards that building soon? >> right now, we don't have any reason to go in and rush into the situation, we are constantly assessing the situation, and trying to create a peaceful outcome and putting this person into custody. we're trying to do everything we can to create time and distance and get the best outcome so that no one gets hurt, which includes officer, the suspect as well as the public in the area. >> okay. officer robert recca with the san francisco police department. thank you for your time. we're happy to hear nobody has been injured to this point and hope it stays that way. what you need the public to do is shelter in place, take cover,
stay inside and if they're not there, do not go to the area, is that correct? >> that's correct. if you see officers and they're giving out in instructions to evacuate, please listen to them and be ready to leave quickly. this is a developing information and things can change very quickly. we have a lot of officers in the area to make sure the public is safe and that the incident is controlled and we create the best outcome from this. >> officer, one more question. you haven't gotten any new information on this suspect since we began talking? >> that's correct. i have not received any of that. >> thank you very much. let's go to abc reporter melanie woodrow out there gathering information. as soon as she is able to set up a live picture for us and talk with us live at the scene, we will do so. in the meantime, we want to take
a look at the situation, just to recap, if you're just joining us, we're on the air with breaking news out of san francisco. we put up a map so you understand where this is happening. it is on valencia street, a busy section between 16th and 18th, closed right now, this neighborhood on lockdown since about 2:00, because of a report of an armed man who has now barricaded himself inside the bui building. we say man with caution because the officer did say they're not confirming the gender, however, that this is report we have gotten that people saw man who was armed, who barricaded himself in a building there at 16th and valencia as a result, san francisco police and the hostage negotiations team are out there.
they are trying to give that suspect some time and distance to not put additional pressure on the situation and hopefully there will be a good outcome and ending to this with nobody getting hurt. we do want to let you know there have been no injuries and no report of an actual gun or weapon of some type being fired. due to that being the fear, people in those businesses, in those apartments are being asked to stay inside. we're taking a look at some ground video for you that we shot in the area on valencia. you can see officers, we talked about why they're out there. they're trying to insure people are safe inside so they stay out of any potential line of fire. officers who have come in from other districts, precincts as well. we're doing our best to not show
