7:00 am
while you're mastering life. from chase. so you can. good morning, america. breaking right now, president trump has arrived in paris. a high-stakes meeting with the fresh president in the middle of that firestorm over his son's e-mails about that meeting with a russian lawyer. the president is now coming to donald trump jr.'s defense. breaking news, a major break in the case of those four missing young men. what police discovered overnight on that pennsylvania property and what we're now learning about the person of interest back behind bars. abc news exclusive. the mother who feared for her child's life when they were stuck on a plane during a heat wave is now speaking out. >> i thought i was going to lose my son. >> she's now asking for changes in her first television interview only on "gma." ♪ 24 karat magic in the air
7:01 am
and america's top athletes taking center stage at the espys overnight. michelle obama glowing. the chicago cubs getting a champagne celebration with bill murray and the words jarrius robertson says he lives by inspiring so many. >> good morning, america. i just won an espy. >> good morning, america. i just won an espy. >> good morning, america. and good morning to our buddy, jarrius. good morning, america, as we come on the air right now we are getting the first images of president trump in paris. there he is coming off air force one with the first lady. >> yeah, melania visiting a children's hospital just a few hours ago and the president set to meet with french president emmanuel macron on his third international trip. >> yeah, this is going to be a tricky one. the president is not popular in france and remember that first handshake he had with the french president. there you see it right there. >> who could forget it. >> they held on. in fact, the french president
7:02 am
said it was a moment of truth and wanted to show he couldn't be bullied but he did invite him to paris and trying to escape the controversy at home but will take questions at a press conference right around 12:25 today. back at home, senate republicans preparing to unveil their new draft of the health care bill this morning. we'll have much more on that in just a moment, but first let's go to our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega who's on the ground there in paris. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, amy, good morning to you. the president expected to face very tough questions about russia in that press conference that as you said happens in just a few hours. he is already speaking out on that topic overnight in an interview calling the story about russia the greatest con job in history. the president and first lady in paris this morning, receiving a ceremonial welcome. but those questions about russia still linger. president trump coming to his son's defense in an interview with reuters saying he only learned of that trump tower meeting between don junior and a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin a couple of days ago. the president saying, most of
7:03 am
the phony politicians who are democrats who i watched over the last couple of days, most of those phonies that act holier than thou, if the same thing happened to them, they would have taken that meeting in a heartbeat. and on those questions of his campaign's ties to russia, the president said, there was zero coordination. it's the dumbest thing i've ever heard. there's no coordination. this was a hoax. this was made up by the democrats, calling it the greatest con job in history. >> in retrospect, i probably would have done things a little differently. >> reporter: e-mails about that meeting show don junior was told he would receive information that would incriminate hillary clinton. that material described as part of russia's attempt to help the president. in those e-mails, don junior's response, if that's what you say, i love it. the white house defense -- >> the bottom line is what came out of this 20-minute brief meeting, nothing helpful, nothing meaningful, nothing consequential. >> reporter: on the christian broadcasting network, the president also talking about his own russian meeting, that face-to-face with vladimir putin.
7:04 am
>> well, he wants what's good for russia. >> yeah. >> and i want what's good for the united states. i think we got along very well and i think that's a good thing. >> reporter: the question this morning, how well will he get along with emmanuel macron? after their white-knuckle first handshake. and the follow-up just last week in germany, the new french president inviting president trump to celebrate bastille day on the world stage. short trip for president trump. he's on the ground for just 28 hours. as for that press conference, both presidents getting two questions each from both the french press corps and the white house press corps. >> speaking of the french visit, cecilia, we've been showing everyone. there's a bit of an uncomfortable relationship between the french president and president trump and they'll be spending a lot of time together. >> reporter: a lot of time, a little bit of business and pleasure mixed together. of course, that bastille day parade tomorrow. they are scheduled to have talks about syria and counterterrorism and tonight, both the presidents and their wives having dinner
7:05 am
right here at the eiffel tower, amy. >> we know you'll be there covering it. thanks so much. >> they also have big policy differences over climate change. let's talk more with jonathan karl and, jon, we saw those first interviews from president trump yesterday. he's not only doubling down but tripling down on this meeting his son don junior has had even though it is rocking the white house. >> reporter: it absolutely is, george, but the president -- it took him a while to get here. he was out of the public eye for days as the story broke but he is fully defending his son and when i asked about jared kushner who, of course, was also on that e-mail chain, also in that meeting, and the only official who is in the white house who was on that, when i asked the spokesperson here sarah huckabee sanders yesterday she was emphatic that he did nothing wrong. those were her words. >> one thing we do know is that jared kushner had to change his disclosure forms to say -- to put those meetings in even though they had been left out of his initial disclosure forms and that's leading to a lot of criticism from democrats and others, some saying jared kushner should lose his security clearance.
7:06 am
some saying he should resign and jared kushner does have enemies inside the white house. >> reporter: yeah, the focus initially, of course, has been on don junior, those were his e-mails. he was the one that set up that meeting. but, again, that meeting was don junior, not in the white house, paul manafort, long since gone, fired as campaign manager last summer, jared kushner is the one who is here. he was the one who was legally required to disclose meetings like that, including his other meetings with russian officials like the russian ambassador, so there is a sense in the white house that jared kushner is the one that faces the most legal jeopardy if there is any here, and there is a reluctance, i have heard from many in the president's circle, a reluctance to fully defend kushner but, again, as i said you heard from the president's spokesperson, an emphatic full-throated he did nothing wrong. >> meanwhile, the president's nominee for the fbi director christopher wray was asked what
7:07 am
someone should do if they were approached in a meeting by a russian official, here's what he had to say. >> to the members of this committee, any threat or effort to interfere with our elections from any nation state or any nonstate actor is the kind of thing the fbi would want to know. >> all right, so, i'll take it we should call you and that's a great answer. >> not a lot of defense of that meeting on capitol hill but wray did do well. it looks like he's going to glide to confirmation. >> reporter: democrats were very happy with him and also, by the way, contradicted the president on the subject of james comey. made it clear that he fully -- he respects james comey. >> jon karl, i know you'll join me for our live coverage of the president's press conference around 12:25 eastern on abc. george, and now to the battle over health care. senate republicans are preparing to reveal a new version of their bill to repeal and replace obamacare, trying to rally support after so many false starts. our congressional correspondent mary bruce is on capitol hill with what we can expect. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, amy.
7:08 am
well, senate republicans are stuck and it's unclear if this latest version of the health care bill is going to change that. the new version will be revealed later today and is expected to include an extra $45 billion to fight the opioid epidemic, keep an obamacare tax on the wealthy and could include an amendment to allow insurance companies to offer cheaper pared down plans and some of the most controversial aspects, including deep cuts in medicaid spending, amy, already some hold-outs said these tweaks aren't going to cut it and republicans that i talked to said they would be surprised if it passed. but the pressure is mounting. take a listen to what the president said happens if they can't get it done. >> i think it would be very bad and i would be very angry about it and a lot of people will be very upset but i'm sitting waiting for that bill to come to my desk. i hope they do it. they've been promising it for years, they've been promising it ever since obamacare which has failed.
7:09 am
>> all right, mary, we know the republicans are up against the clock, they're trying to get this done before their august break. >> reporter: amy, republicans are up against their own ticking time line. they've already delayed their august recess, buying two more weeks to deal with this legislative pileup. republican leaders say they're hoping to move to a vote on health care next week, but right now it's hard to see if that vote could succeed. amy. >> all right, we'll have to wait and see. thanks so much, mary. george. we're going to move on now to the severe thunderstorms across the midwest and northeast. they're bringing dangerous winds, hail, flooding and rob marciano tracking it all. good morning, rob. >> we expect another active day today. last 36 hours have been active across this frontal boundary from new england across new york, ohio, back through the midwest including chicago where they're dealing with record flooding and the rivers are still rising this morning. basement stairwells turned into raging rivers in wisconsin. picnic tables floating away in chicago. this town in indiana underwater. from iowa to wisconsin as much as a foot of rain falling. triggering flash floods, making for dangerous driving conditions
7:10 am
across the midwest. in illinois, water rescues required. in lake forest, this hospital forced to move 70 patients after they lost power. >> what the heck is that? >> reporter: in north chicago, eight inches to ten inches of water pouring into homes. a state of emergency declared in burlington, wisconsin. residents there forced to evacuate. thousands without electricity this morning. severe rain pounding the east. boston receiving record rainfall. and in just two hours, parts of eastern new england got four inches of rain. and overnight last night, albany, new york, seeing rising rivers, 13 people rescued and it will trigger some severe storms from indianapolis to cleveland, to columbus. heavy rain with these and saturated ground and tomorrow getting into the areas of philadelphia back through d.c., and behind this and underneath this certainly some heat and humidity. talk more about that in a few
7:11 am
minutes. amy. >> okay, rob, thanks so much. >> now, to those new developments in that tragic death of an american tourist in greece. new surveillance video showing the recent college graduate attacked by a group of men after a dispute at a bar. abc's gio benitez is here with more on this story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning. some reports in greece say a dispute over a table started the fight. others say it was over a waitress but no matter what, a young man is dead this morning and now we have the key evidence, a video, we should warn you it is difficult to watch. overnight, new surveillance video released showing the dramatic and disturbing fight that led to the death of american tourist bakari henderson. you see him right there running from a group of men outside a bar in greece on friday. henderson being thrown onto a car then falling to the ground. taking a beating by the group. kicking and punching him in the face, his friends say he was pummeled with brass knuckles. it all happened in less than 15 seconds. you can see a man and woman trying to stop the attack and moments later, someone performing cpr. another angle showing the moment that fight broke out inside the bar.
7:12 am
henderson later died from severe head injuries. the 22-year-old and recent university of arizona grad from austin, texas, was on the island of zakynthos visiting a friend and conducting a photo shoot for the clothing business he was about to launch. this morning, nine have been charged with intentional homicide including the bouncer, an employee of the bar and seven serbian tourists, five of the suspects appearing in court wednesday. >> he was a big thinker. he loved big ideas and he was going to do a lot of great things. >> reporter: family and friends devastated, preparing to lay henderson to rest this weekend telling abc news in a statement, bakari was an inspiration to all he met. he loved life and lived it to the fullest. >> remember the positive memories we have had with him. obviously, everyone wants answers and wants people to pay for what they did. >> and this morning we know all of the suspects have pleaded not guilty.
7:13 am
a lawyer for one of them saying their client never intended to kill anyone. the u.s. state department tells us it is communicating with greek authorities and, of course, offering condolences to the family. >> so incredibly sad. >> unbelievable. >> all right, gio, thank you. a happier story, what could be a major breakthrough in the fight against cancer. a new technique was endorsed to use a patient's own genes to battle the disease and jen ashton is here. there is a lot of hope here. >> this is personalized targeted therapy that basically genetically engineers part of a patient's blood cells, then re-administers them to that patient so they can target and destroy the malignant cells in kind of a trojan horse type of method without hurting the healthy cells. it's generating a lot of excitement. >> where it's been tried it's shown real positive effects. >> it's studied in all types of cancer but shows most promise in liquid cancers like leukemia. we don't know exactly how much treatment this would cost but the estimates are very expensive. could be $300,000 a year and we have to look at short term and long-term side effects. >> there are pretty severe side effects.
7:14 am
>> there can be and the take-home message for this or any innovative cell therapy, you should ask about select cancer centers. because they're usually the few centers in the country giving it and people can go to every single clinical trial in the united states has to be listed on that site. so you can learn more there. >> almost certain the fda will approve it. >> it looks that way. we'll see. >> dr. ashton, thanks very much. overseas now, venus williams is back on the court at wimbledon and could make history at 37, she is the oldest woman to reach the semifinals since martina navratilova in 1994. she is taking on british star joanna konta with home field advantage. so far she has vanquished opponents 18 years her junior all while overcoming the emotions from her involvement in that deadly car crash last month. she was cleared of any wrongdoing.
7:15 am
a major upset in the men's competition. sam querrey ranked 24th beat top ranked andy murray to become the first american to reach the men's semifinals since 2009. querrey admits he was even in shock after the match. but a good shock. >> maybe should stay in shock. >> exactly. last night's espys there, the oscars of the sports world. honoring talented and inspiring athletes making a difference. michelle obama last night's special guest. t.j. holmes on hand for all of it. hey, t.j. >> reporter: good morning, george. from michael phelps, to the chicago cubs of course, it was quite a year in sports, but some of the biggest applause last night was actually reserved for people who are not professional athletes and then there's the moment that everybody is talking about when host peyton manning told a joke that one nba superstar did not seem to appreciate. the former first lady, award-winning actors, tiny heroes, even snoop dogg. >> this is going to be a breeze. >> reporter: all there to help make the 25th annual espy awards one of the biggest ever. the show's big winners, simone biles, nba mvp russell westbrook, the golden state
7:16 am
warriors, and a baseball team whose award was over a century in the making. >> 108 years of waiting is hardly a moment. >> reporter: bill murray was on hand to present the cubs with their trophy and enjoy one last champagne celebration. a standing ovation greeted the jimmy v award for perseverance winner. jarrius "jj" robertson. >> don't give up. >> don't ever give up. >> these words by jimmy v i have been living by my entire life. >> reporter: now, you said this guy is an inspiration to you here. >> he is the first to put other people before himself and everything that he does with a smile on his face even when he's going through some tough times. >> reporter: former first lady michelle obama presented eunice kennedy shriver posthumously with the arthur ashe award for courage. >> i'm proud to be joined by these special olympians who represent millions around the world. >> reporter: freshly retired nfl
7:17 am
legend peyton manning handled hosting duties although his joke about kevin durant's move seemed to fall flat, at least with kevin durant. >> our gymnastics team was so dominant that kevin durant told me he wants to play for them next year. >> reporter: manning told me backstage k.d.'s reaction was not part of the script. >> he knows what a big fan i am of him. >> reporter: but that wasn't staged. you didn't discuss that beforehand? >> a good zinger is probably good for him. keeps you on your toes. >> reporter: kevin durant had some fun with it. on twitter. he wasn't upset playing it up and something you did not see in that celebration on stage with bill murray, he came backstage to talk to me and he had blood running down his hand. he had cut himself during that celebration. he didn't need to go to a hospital but still he said this was a cause we've been waiting a long time for. >> from opening the champagne bottle. >> reporter: yes, he was out there throwing that knife around and absolutely slashed his hand and he was bleeding pretty good backstage.
7:18 am
>> oh, okay. hope he's all right. >> yeah. >> worth it, though, the celebration. thanks, t.j. we'll check back with you later but let's check in with rob with more on the dangerous heat in the northeast. hot outside this morning. >> hot again today heat advisories across the heartland and east with temperatures that will feel, well, up and over 100 degrees in some spots. even a heat warning for philadelphia. couple the heat with the humidity and what it feels like outside is 107 today in richmond, 101 in philly and 102 in washington. your heat index right now is brought to you by sprint. good morning! i'm meteorologist mike nicco

and we're back with that abc news exclusive with the mother who feared for her baby's life as he grew dangerously hot on a delayed plane stuck on the tarmac, abc's mara schiavocampo sat down with her and joins us from denver's airport where that incident unfolded. good morning, mara, and very scary. >> reporter: very scary story here, amy. good morning. you know, we hear a lot about hot car dangers in the summer, but one new mom says her newborn son was exposed to the same level of danger but on an
7:40 am
airplane, and now she is demanding that the airlines change their policies. >> they looked at me and said we can't get you off the plane and that was the worst moment of my life. >> reporter: this morning, one mother speaking out on what she says is a travel hazard that she believes could have cost her infant son his life. emily france was stuck on a plane last month with her 4-month-old son owen. the flight grounded at denver international airport during a summer heat wave. temperatures inside the cabin rising. >> it was extremely hot and everyone around me was complaining. >> reporter: she says that after a delay, the flight crew allowed her and owen off the plane to cool off. 20 minutes later she re-boarded for takeoff only to have the flight delayed again and that's when she says owen's condition starting quickly deteriorating. >> a mom knows, and he made a cry that i've never heard before and his coloring, i've never seen that color before. he was screaming and then he
7:41 am
just stopped and my son went limp in my arms. and i said call an ambulance and get me off the plane. >> did you fear for his life? >> yes, i did. i thought i was going to lose my son in my arms. >> reporter: while the flight crew called for help -- >> we have an infant with shortness of breath. this is going to be a return to gate. >> reporter: emily says they couldn't figure out how to evacuate her. with no stairs and no jetway. >> it was complete chaos. >> reporter: a fellow passenger capturing those panic-filled minutes. what do you see when you look at that picture? >> i see helplessness. >> reporter: after approximately 15 minutes she was finally able to get off, owen rushed to the emergency room. you feel like that plane, that day was just as dangerous as a child being left in a hot car? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> reporter: united airlines says we are profoundly sorry and apologize to our customer and
7:42 am
her child for the experience they endured. we are continuing to look into what happened to prevent this from occurring again. the faa telling abc news, the agency expects operators to take appropriate action if a cabin temperature condition occurs on the ground that could potentially affect passenger safety. now emily wants change. asking airlines to implement policies about the temperature inside the cabin. do you feel like they were prepared for an emergency like this? >> absolutely not. i want to share it in hopes that another mom or parent never has to go through this ever again. >> reporter: as for owen, he was able to return home from the hospital the same day. now, despite united's apology emily says they have not yet apologized to her directly and still doesn't know whether she will be filing a lawsuit. >> and it's important to note young children are more susceptible to heat than adults
7:43 am
are, correct? >> reporter: that's correct. not only do babies and children heat up nearly five times faster than adults, they also have a much more difficult time regulating their body temperature. >> all right, mara, thank you. we're just glad owen is okay. >> five times faster, that's surprising. coming up on our big board, why a heated court battle is brewing over these selfies. i am totally blind. and i live with non-24, a circadian rhythm disorder that can throw my days and nights out of sync, keeping me from the people, places, and things i love. the people i love have always been there for me. and now, i'm there for them, too. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424 to learn more. ahyou the law? we've had some complaints of... is that a fire? there's your payoff, deputy.

in today's big board, a battle in court like we have never seen before. it's over selfies taken by a monkey named naruto.
7:47 am
the photos went viral after he snapped them with a nature photographer's camera. >> and it set off a heated copyright debate, and now the ninth circuit court of appeals is hearing arguments in the case on animal rights. kendis gibson has the story. >> reporter: who really owns these world-famous selfies snapped by an indonesian monkey? >> monkey see, monkey sue will not do in federal court. >> reporter: the wildlife photographer whose camera captured this grin is fighting a lawsuit by animal rights group peta on behalf of naruto, which it claims is the simian shutterbug who picked up david j. slater's camera and snapped the selfies. >> the definition of an authorship turns on he who originates. it doesn't look at the he, she, who or what. >> reporter: the smiling self-portrait was later sold by slater and also used as the cover for his book about wildlife personalities. peta says any proceeds from the book or sales of the image
7:48 am
should be turned over to benefit the monkey. according to slater's lawyers, that's, well, bananas. >> it makes no sense to allow a monkey to enforce a copyright suit, but if you're going to do that, it's equally absurd to deny a monkey written notice. >> naruto wouldn't need written notice. maybe the other macaque monkeys in indonesia would. >> that's precisely right, your honor. >> reporter: the ninth circuit court now considering the appeal of peta's case dismissed about by lower court saying since he's not a human, he is out of luck. for "good morning america," kendis gibson, abc news, new york. >> all right, sunny hostin joins us now. the selfie itself put a smile on my face, but people are chuckling watching what's happening in court. any shot that peta will win and the monkey will have the rights to the photo? >> i don't think so. it sounds a lot like monkey business. did you like that one? you know, the legal question is whether or not a monkey can be given human legal rights and although we share these
7:49 am
behavioral and cognitive and social abilities, i just don't think it will quite get there. it's just not -- >> you don't think it's going to be close. >> i don't think it's going to be close because, take it to its logical conclusion, i mean, is the dog now going to get to choose which human parent he or she lives with during a divorce? you know -- >> you know, so humor us. let's assume for the sake of argument peta wins here, what would that mean? >> i mean it would mean that these animals would now have human legal rights, even though they can't walk into a courtroom and file a lawsuit or talk. >> or read the lawsuit. >> or read the lawsuit, and so i don't think it's going to happen but it's quite the selfie and it's very interesting because we do share these abilities with these monkeys and other animals, but they're not going to be human. >> monkey see, monkey do, that is why i'm sure he took the selfie. i'm sure he saw someone else doing it. peta is arguing people set up
7:50 am
trusts for their pets august the time. so how is this different? >> because the people are setting up the trusts. the people are doing it. i think what's fascinating, though, in november of 2016, there was an argentinean judge that found that a chimpanzee named cecelia was a legal nonperson and so that chimpanzee is now somewhere at a sanctuary as a legal sort of nonhuman person. >> a nonhuman person. >> so, there's a little bit of precedent for it. >> so, who knows. >> we'll see what happens. sunny hostin, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> we appreciate it. coming up next, tv host maria menounos now speaking out about her brain tumor battle and recovery. and we have the details about kate middleton's gown that has so many people talking. we'll be right back. risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but no matter what path i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin,
