killed his wife. >> i just felt such anger that nothing -- i didn't feel anything. >> prosecutors releasing dozens of videos from their investigation, and what they say the woman he had an affair with searched for online. the 8-year-old bitten by a shark on a family vacation. >> absolute panic. >> now telling his story. would you pay more for palessi? exclusive new footage behind the scenes of that payless prank, how they tricked fashion influencers to pay hundreds of dollars for shoes that cost way less, and the shock when these fashi fashionistas found out. good morning, america. great to have you with us on this friday morning and i'm sure we've all overpaid for a few things but never -- >> i never paid a lot for shoes.
7:02 am
never. >> okay. >> cecilia in the seat of honor this morning. >> great to be here. what a huge news day you had yesterday. a big break for you and the team. >> a big news day, a big bombshell. repercussions for the president is what we're going to get to right now. new questions for the president as he meets with world leaders in argentina today. this summit comes on the heel as cecilia was just saying, of that russia investigation bombshell placing trump at the center of an effort to build a tower in moscow during his presidential campaign. the president's former lawyer, michael cohen, now admitting he lied about it to congress to protect his boss. our chief white house correspondent jon karl in buenos aires with the president. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. with a whirlwind two days of diplomatic meetings just getting under way now here in argentina, there is a new reality weighing on the trump presidency. the president's longtime confidante, michael cohen, has spent 70 hours in interviews with special counsel robert mueller. as the president takes the world
7:03 am
stage this morning here in argentina, signing a new trade deal with canada and mexico and high-stakes meeting to prevent a trade war with china, he is facing mounting troubles back home. >> michael cohen! >> reporter: president trump's longtime fixer has now gone state's witness. michael cohen entering a plea agreement with special counsel robert mueller. it's a move with massive implications for the special counsel investigation and perhaps the trump presidency. cohen has admitted to lying to congress about working during the 2016 campaign to strike a deal to build a trump tower in moscow. and he says he was lying to protect his longtime boss, donald trump. as the president left the white house for argentina, he lashed out at his former fixer. >> he's a weak person and not a very smart person. very simply, michael cohen is lying and he's trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me. >> reporter: at the same time the president did not deny trying to pull together the
7:04 am
moscow deal even as he was campaigning for president. >> when i run for president, that doesn't mean i'm not allowed to do business. i was doing a lot of different things when i was running. after i won, obviously i don't do business. >> reporter: for more than two years, trump has repeatedly insisted he has had no business ties with russia. >> but zero. i will tell you right now, zero. i have nothing to do with russia. >> reporter: throughout his campaign and into his presidency president trump has talked about the need for the u.s. government to have closer ties with russia. >> wouldn't it be great if we actually got along with russia? wouldn't it be great? is there anything wrong with that? >> reporter: he said he ditched the moscow project in early 2016 before he clinched the republican nomination, but he says he didn't have to. >> there would be nothing wrong if i did do it. i was running my business while i was campaigning. there was a good chance that i wouldn't have won, in which case i would have gotten back into the business and why should i lose lots of opportunities? >> reporter: and while the
7:05 am
president was on air force one flying down here to argentina, another surprise. he abruptly canceled his planned meeting with vladimir putin. he was going to meet with him right here, very highly anticipated meeting, george, and the president said he was calling it off because of russian aggression in ukraine. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief legal analyst, dan abrams. we saw the president say this had nothing to do with him. one reason it's so important, it does put the president right at the center of this effort. >> right, and the question becomes, why, right? we talked about this before, this idea that this is a piece in the puzzle. this isn't the proof of collusion. this isn't the smoking gun but the question becomes, why did the president, if cohen is telling the truth, want to move the date back from june to january? why is that six-month period so important? and the answer would be if it's true, that he didn't want to be seen as talking to russia during the period right when you have got all the hacking. you have got the meeting with
7:06 am
don junior. this is the heart of the contact and the problems with the russians that's happening in june. >> he gets another important thing that mueller and reporters have uncovered now over the last year and a half. when it comes to russia, whether the issue is contacts or building the trump tower in moscow or the attorney general talking to a russian ambassador during the campaign, don junior having this meeting, every single time, it starts out with a lie. then the lie is uncovered. mueller's job is to find out why. >> also mueller's job is to put them all together. you can't look at each one in isolation. you can't say to yourself, flynn. what is flynn's single, single lie tell us? that's not the question. the question is what does flynn's lie tell us in connection with the other lies? why is everyone seemingly distancing themselves from either conversations they had, meetings, et cetera, with russians? what was going on? that's the question, the big picture question, mueller has to ask. >> the other important takeaway. we now know michael cohen has
7:07 am
implicated the president on campaign finance felonies in his previous case, and implicated the president in trump tower and as jon said we reported yesterday, he spent 70 hours with mueller's team. this is not over. >> right, and so knowing how close michael cohen was to donald trump, you know donald trump has to be worked. i mean, regardless of what we already know already, the idea that one of his closest confidantes -- and, remember, attorney/client privilege only applies to legal work. >> not business work. >> it doesn't apply to business work, so he can talk about any business contacts that the president had and that's got to be unnerving. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. michael. >> all right, george. now to those dangerous storms out west. relentless rain forcing mandatory evacuations and triggering powerful mudslides, and it's happening in areas already affected and devastated by wildfires. abc's will carr is in agoura hills, california, with the very latest. good morning, will. >> reporter: michael, the sandbags are out this morning because this is really a double-edged sword. you have already had the fires
7:08 am
that have raced through this area, burning trees that normally stop all that rock and mud from flowing down into communities like in that have been devastated and now that we're getting that much-needed rain, we're also getting those dangerous mudslides. raging mud slides sweeping across parts of california scorched by wildfires trapping cars and forcing evacuations. >> there's a lot of mud coming down at a very rapid rate of speed now here in rice canyon. >> reporter: the fragile fire-scarred hillsides crumbling after a nonstop deluge. the region bone dry and thirsty for rain getting so much precipitation so quickly -- >> it was bad. we almost lost our whole driveway. >> reporter: roads inundated, the rain-slicked streets seeing crash of crash. some areas getting enough rain to bury highway signs. this big rig left dangling off the side of a highway, cars flipped over and flattened. four firefighters injured when a car spun out and crashed into their truck. this man overwhelmed by the raging waters of the l.a. river airlifted to safety, and emergency services telling
7:09 am
residents to evacuate, but as the threat continues to grow, some residents choosing to stay. >> if we do, we're going to lose it. if we don't, we can fight it which is what we've been doing. >> reporter: even though the rain is letting up, we're expecting more across the region this weekend and into this week, cecilia. >> okay, will, thank you. as we saw, those wildfires were just devastating. the camp fire alone in california ravaged more than 18,000 buildings and the death toll stands at 88 and nearly 200 people are still unaccounted for even as the official search for missing has been stopped. now this morning, we are seeing new bodycam footage from a first responder who turned on that camera thinking it would be recording his final moments. thankfully he survived, and our chief national correspondent, matt gutman, also has more from agoura hills. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, cecilia. deputy aaron parmley refused to
7:10 am
let those four nurses be part of that statistic that you just mentioned, nearly 200 unaccounted for, and when his police cruiser broke down he proceeded on foot through that firestorm to find them. deputy aaron parmley thought this video would document his last minutes alive. overnight the sheriff's office releasing his body camera video from the camp fire. he was assigned to evacuate four nurses at the feather rivers hospital from the hellscape earlier this month. >> that's not good. >> reporter: you can hear people cry out for help. >> help, help! >> reporter: the hurricane of fire that turned the sky blood orange. along with the nurses, they cling toe that orphan hot ro-- oven-hot road in a blizzard of embers. >> it's bad. >> are they coming for us? >> reporter: the area so choked with smoke, they can't tell this rescue vehicle is a bulldozer until they hop on. >> we can only fit one or two. >> reporter: another fire truck pulls up and they pile in. >> the dozer. >> reporter: even when they got into those vehicles they still
7:11 am
weren't sure they were going to make it. they had to drive through a tunnel of fire to make it to safety. and what's incredible about this video, it looks like it was shot in the nighttime but everything you just saw was shot between the hours of 8:30 and 10:00 in the morning, george. >> that's just stunning, a picture of a hero in hell right there doing an amazing job. matt, thanks very much. we move on to a deadly crash at the border. three people killed, eight injured when a pickup truck hitting 100 miles an hour flipped over trying to flee the border patrol. abc's kayna whitworth has the latest. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: yeah, george. good morning. agents near the border, of course, on high alert. the crash happened in rural san diego county and most of the 11 people in the pickup truck were in the back without seat belts. three people killed and nearly everyone else recovering from injuries. a high-speed chase ending in a fatal crash near the san diego/mexico border. this new video showing the terrifying aftermath. at 4:30 thursday border control agents attempting to pull over a
7:12 am
white pick-up truck. but instead of stopping, the driver taking off, leading agents on a hundred-mile-an-hour chase, and they laid out a spike trip to stop the truck but the spikes sending the vehicle airborne, the pick-up truck flipping over with 11 passengers, many of whom were laying in the truck's flatbed. the crash ejecting all of the passengers, killing three. the rest transported to the hospital with injuries. now, the driver who is a u.s. citizen was not injured and is currently in custody. george. >> thanks very much, kayna. all right, george. we have to turn to breaking news just in. marriott international revealing a data breach that could affect up to 500 million guests who made reservations at starwood properties. for 327 million of these guests the information includes some combination of name, mailing addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, passport numbers and more. marriott is investigating right now.
7:13 am
michael. >> thank you, cecilia. now to an abc news exclusive involving new developments in that hazing scandal in maryland where four high school football players were accused of sexually assaulting freshmen players. abc's stephanie ramos is in damascus, maryland with the latest. good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: michael, good morning. the incident allegedly happened october 31st here at demascus high school. the targets, said to be younger and weaker players who were ambushed by the suspects before football practice. this morning, four sophomore football players from this suburban maryland high school have been indicted for allegedly participating in the sexual assault of four younger teammates in their locker room. >> the maximum penalties by law are up to life imprisonment. >> reporter: the state's attorney telling abc news exclusively a grand jury handed down eight counts against each of the four 15-year-olds charging them all as adults for sexual assault, attempted assault and conspiracy to commit assault.
7:14 am
authorities now investigating the possibility that this is not the first incident at damascus high school. investigators say one of the suspects told them it was a so-called tradition. parents and students at damascus, shocked. >> even if it was tradition, it shouldn't be tradition at all, you know, sexual assault. >> it's been a learning experience for both the students as well as the parents in the community to try to wrap their head around these events and take the necessary steps to make sure it doesn't happen in the future. >> reporter: the prosecutor says he hopes the severity of the charges brings some sense of justice to the victims. >> by sending this to the grand jury and by indicting these teens, are you hoping to send a wir message to the community, to teenagers? >> i'm not looking to send a message to anybody beyond the boys that were the victims in this case and those who committed these crimes that there will be accountability when you engage in the kind of
7:15 am
activities that these boys engaged in and, you know, try to bring some sense of justice to these boys that were violated. >> reporter: there's also a fifth student accused in all of this. he's being charged as a juvenile. now, before the indictment i spoke with the attorney for one of the suspects. he wanted all of the teens to be charged as juveniles despite the gruesome details revealed earlier this week. as for the school district they say they'll now handle their own investigation now that police have wrapped up their own and michael, they say they will also take a closer look at their athletics program, michael. >> the whole thing just makes you shake your head in disbelief. thank you so much, stephanie. cecilia? we want to turn to new details in the deadly new jersey mansion fire, the suspect accused of killing his own brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew and is now set to appear in court today. linsey davis is outside that courthouse in colts neck, new jersey, and now police believe a money dispute could be at the center of this. >> reporter: good morning to you, cecilia.
7:16 am
exactly right. prosecutors believe that paul caneiro was motivated by money and his younger brother keith was also his business partner for several decades, and now authorities say days before thanksgiving, paul caneiro shot his own brother several times then killed his brother's wife and his two children before setting a fire in the basement of their home. then about an hour later the d.a. says paul caneiro started a fire at his own home with his wife and daughters inside. they were all able to escape unharmed. prosecutors say that it was all a ruse. they allege that he was trying to make it seem like both caneiro families were being targeted. as you said, cecilia, paul is expected to appear in court here today where he plans to plead not guilty to all charges. if convicted on those four murder counts, he faces life in prison. cecilia? >> you'll be following that for us, thank you. now, do you guys swim with sharks? >> no. >> never. >> okay. well, this is just for you. a shark attack was caught on camera. a family vacationing in the bahamas swimming with nurse
7:17 am
sharks which are typically considered tame when one of them suddenly bit their 8-year-old son and now he's telling his story. let's take a look. >> oh, my god. >> we were in the bahamas, and one of the stops were to swim with nurse sharks. there was one at my feet and i jumped over it and then another one came up behind me and went -- at first i thought it was my dad pretending and then i was like, nope, it's my flesh. then absolute panic. and my sister was screaming, i want to get out! i want to get out! >> i want to get out! i want to get out! >> my dad pulled it off and brought me to the ladder. like adults were climbing up the ladder before me and i was like, really, guys? >> such a cute kid.
7:18 am
we're glad he's okay. definitely glad he's okay. and believe it or not, he said he would go back in the water with the sharks. >> you could tell he is a brave little guy. >> yes, he is. >> very, very calm. >> braver than us. >> i got to say, number one, they kept filming it the whole time. >> i know. >> grab the kid. >> we've seen that too many times. >> we have seen that too many times. let's go to rob. >> never stop rolling, george. this is a debris flow here. look how black that water is from all the charred landscape and we're still dealing with that. this next system about to come in and this current system getting into the plains and severe weather threat dallas to little rock to new orleans and tomorrow getting across the gulf coast and over a foot of snow potentially in nebraska.

8:16 am
amazon now says we're constantly experiencing with new ways to improve the shopping experience for customers and these sponsored listings are currently being phased out. and i have to say, cecilia, i'm a bit familiar with this. just a few weeks ago i was filling out my own baby registry and this happened to me on amazon. >> that's wild. but you buried the lead there. your own baby, we're so happy! we're so happy for you and your husband. >> thank you so much. i want to help people see this. take a look at this. see how hard it is to spot the word "sponsored" inside of this registry? now, amazon told us overnight they are phasing this out so no new registries will have these sponsored posts within them. however, if you're out there shopping and it's the holiday season and really important to know that retailers are now toying with all these new ways to get to us. obviously they want to boost their bottom line. they also want to make it easier for us to shop and this is the kind of thing you should watch out for as you are shopping for those holiday
8:17 am
gifts. >> it's so easy to be tricked that this so what happens if you end up receiving some of these items that someone bought by clicking on one of these ads? >> amazon said their return policy applies here. you can return them for a full refund. anybody who has received this type of item off their baby registry from amazon is entitled to that refund. >> we won't click on any ads on your baby registry. we're so happy for you. >> thank you, cecilia. >> george, over to you. >> congratulations, rebecca. we move to our health alert. children getting misdiagnosed with adhd. a new study says it could come from starting school early. our chief medical correspondent dr. jen ashton is here with the details. i got to say that surprised me. >> it is a little surprising. here's the study out just this week in "the new england journal of medicine." they looked at over 400,000 kids in this country from every state and matched their insurance data about their diagnosis for adhd. they found that if a child was enrolled in kindergarten before a september 1st cutoff, so they're born, let's say in april -- sorry, in august,
8:18 am
they're younger for their grade and have a 30% higher chance of being diagnosed with adhd. >> it's correlation, not cause though, right? >> exactly, george. they didn't confirm the diagnosis and the authors of this study are not saying whether it's positive or negative. they're just saying the cutoff date and your birthday matters. >> what difference could that make? >> we're both parents. let's say you have a 5-year-old. what is mature behavior for a 5-year-old might be immature for a 6-year-old. children develop differently at that age because small differences in age at that point make a big difference in their behavior potentially. when you're our age, it doesn't matter. when they're looking at this, if you're young for your grade, then you might be more likely to get attention saying, are they fidgety, are they distracted, do they meet criteria for a diagnosis of adhd. >> we're both parents of kids with adhd and it does take years to figure out the right diagnosis and the right way to treat it. why are more kids being diagnosed with it?
8:19 am
>> i think our awareness is up. when you and i were in school, the term didn't even exist. that didn't mean the disorder didn't exist. it meant people weren't diagnosed with it. we couldn't define it or look for it, screen for it, diagnose it and then treat it. my child was misdiagnosed until the age of 12 and at that point when medication was started, george, it was like putting glasses on a person who couldn't see. now, medication is not for every child with adhd. but it can be life changing. that's the key. >> i have to say once we found the right medication as well it made all the difference. >> exactly. awareness. >> thanks very much. we all have our traditions and techniques to decorating a christmas tree. well, in the home of our own paula faris, they take it to a whole other level. check it out. >> i want to see if i can find it. >> missed. landon missing. j.j., a little older, maybe more
