7:02 am
when will they learn, guys? when will they learn? good morning, america. we're going to begin with the celebration of former president george h.w. bush's life and legacy. the nation's 41st president lying in state at the capitol rotunda. that's a live look right now and you see people are lining up again this morning as they did all throughout the night to pay their respects. >> and last night president trump and first lady melania trump also came to pay their respects hours after the late president was transported through the streets of washington to the capitol. >> that was quite a motorcade during the afternoon. crowds gathered outside to watch the casket arrive. you see them there. inside the president's family joined by those he served with in congress and the white house official farewell. our senior national correspondent terry moran starts us off. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's such an inspiring scene here, people filing by, paying
7:03 am
their republicans. i just spoke with a family arriving before work, before school, i spoke to the dad. he said pointing to his kids, i wanted them to be inspired and what's really inspiring, the special feeling here is that people are paying tribute not just to president bush's record in office but more to his character as a man. last night under the great dome of the capitol, this solemn presidential tribute. president trump with first lady melania at his side paying their respects to president george herbert walker bush heads bowed, they stood there for minutes. and then one final salute. from the 45th president to the 41st president. the moment capped a day filled with emotion and pageantry as the nation's leaders gathered to honor a president and to remember a good man. george bush's final journey to washington, d.c., began in his home state of texas. his family standing beside him as it began, his casket draped in an american flag. the president's service dog sully also right there with him. his secret service detail on duty one last time.
7:04 am
their final mission for their commander-in-chief carrying him out of the funeral home. it arrived at ellington field. the bush family boarded air force one, renamed special air mission 41, for this exceptional occasion and when it arrived at andrews air force base late afternoon, navy sailors from the "uss george h.w. bush" were waiting, standing at attention. family members waiting silently while the president's casket was taken into a black hearse and the motorcade then travelled through the streets of washington, d.c., arriving at the u.s. capitol at dusk. perfect sunset. the sky stunning streaked with color, nature's pageant. members of the military carrying the casket while a 21-gun salute echoed through the evening. the late president's first-born son, former president george w. bush, somber and strained as he and the rest of the bush clan waited at the top of the steps
7:05 am
to escort their patriarch to the place of honor. the members of the first president bush's administration, including dick cheney, colin powell and his closest friend and secretary of state james baker, the emotions of the moment were etched on their faces. the procession then slowly made its way to the rotunda where the casket was placed on the lincoln catafalque. members of congress and justices of the supreme court were also gathered there and then george herbert walker bush was remembered as a man of character. >> there was a kindness about the man that was evident to everyone who ever met him. >> reporter: as a public servant whose life impacted millions. >> he made contributions to freedom with the fundamental decency that resonates across generations. >> reporter: and as a devoted husband to his beloved wife barbara. >> the patriot who lies before us was blessed with many gifts, but there was no doubt which he prized most of all.
7:06 am
a great love story began at that christmas dance when george bush met barbara pierce. >> reporter: the solemn ceremony was the final public appearance of the day for a family in mourning. you could see the grief of the farewell on the face of the 43rd president. at 7:30 p.m., the public was allowed to enter the capitol to pay their respects, a lone boy scout saluting the president he never knew. a boy scout salute. he would have liked that. president bush didn't like to talk about himself. his mother taught him not to use the big "i" as she said. but the country is talking about him now. there are many ways to be remembered, maybe the best as he is being remembered as a good man, guys. >> that's so true. that is beautiful. thank you, terry. besides his career, a public service, another thing george h.w. bush was known for, his colorful socks. at a celebration in houston people were asked to wear
7:07 am
colorful socks in tribute to him and they came through and we want to show you the socks that the late president will be wearing when he is laid to rest, his spokesman said they pay tribute to his lifetime of service starting as an 18-year-old naval aviator. >> the experience of his life. president trump is set to attend president george h.w. bush's funeral tomorrow. it's no secret that the bush family and president trump have had a tense relationship over the years but thankfully it seems past differences will be set aside and our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce has more on that. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. well, president trump does have a contentious relationship with the bush family, but throughout this week's proceedings the president is being seen, though, likely largely not heard. the president late last night with the first lady paying that solemn visit here to the capitol, the president offering an extended salute. the first lady with her hand over her heart. the president did not offer any remarks, but in a written statement to congress president trump says president bush, quote, led a life that exemplified what is truly great about america. president trump is expected to attend the funeral tomorrow at
7:08 am
the washington national cathedral though he is not slated to deliver any eulogy. all living presidents will be in attendance there putting president trump in the same room as president obama, president clinton and hillary clinton for the first time since the inauguration, robin. >> all right, mary, thank you. and we will have complete live coverage of the memorials and the tributes, including tomorrow's funeral, at the national cathedral that mary was just talking about. >> yeah, i'll be heading to washington later today. to the white house and new questions this morning for president trump after he publicly attacks his longtime fixer michael cohen for cooperating with the mueller investigation and praises longtime ally roger stone for standing up to the probe. want to bring in cecilia vega and, cecilia, these tweets came in rapid-fire, rapid succession. yesterday. he called for the judge to give michael cohen a full sentence, then praised roger stone for telling me on sunday i will never testify against trump adding, nice to know some people have guts. legal experts analyzing those
7:09 am
tweets say they could be part of an obstruction of justice case. >> reporter: yeah, george, obstruction or possible witness tampering because they say he's sending two different messages. one clear message to those who cooperate, you will be punished and those who refuse to cooperate you will be rewarded. among those who are now publicly sounding this alarm, george conway, the conservative lawyer and, of course, kellyanne conway's husband, has become a frequent critic of president trump. he simply tweeted the federal code for witness tampering, another one, the former acting solicitor general under president obama. he tweeted, this is genuinely looking like witness tampering, george. some are saying this might be something the democrats take up when at the take control of the house in less than a month now. >> they may do that. another move from robert mueller today. he's going to file a sentencing memo on the president's former national security adviser michael flynn. who pleaded guilty last year. >> reporter: he's been cooperating ever since with the mueller team. a sentencing memo that could detail exactly how much flynn has been cooperating behind closed doors. and the reason this is
7:10 am
significant is because, as we've been saying for months now, mueller's team has been remarkably tight-lipped. we really don't know what they have as it relates to russia, but this perhaps could pull back the curtains a little bit on their investigation, how much flynn is cooperating. a lot could change today, george. >> it's been one of the biggest mysteries, thanks very much. we are going to move on to that dangerous storm bringing in new threats to california's fire zone. major rain expected to hit, sparking fears of mudslides and flooding. ginger is tracking the storm and has the latest on its path. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: good morning, michael. especially in those burn scar areas. but first, let me update you from taylorville, illinois, 1 of 26 tornados that made their way through. that is the number one day in december ever recorded in recorded history for the state of illinois and most tornadoes they've ever seen. so an update there, that was 155-mile-per-hour ef-3 and new storm out in the pacific now. california on alert. really the whole state because the northern half gets it
7:11 am
tomorrow night and, by thursday, it's really settling into southern. we're talking about up to 3 inches of rain in those mudslide possibilities on burn scars. robin? >> thank you. now to that tragic bus crash in arkansas that left one child dead and 45 others injured. the driver telling police she lost control on the way home from a youth football tournament. marcus moore has the latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: robin, good morning. several students were if in the hospital overnight, still receiving treatment for their injuries and this morning, we are hearing the 911 call that captured the chaos after the crash. a battered and twisted charter bus resting on its side along this arkansas highway. >> a bus, a bus just flipped. >> reporter: it is a key piece of evidence as investigators try to figure out what went wrong in this horrific crash that injured more than 40 children and their chaperones and killed a third grader. this morning, we're learning his name. 9-year-old kameron johnson. >> just to confirm there's three critical?
7:12 am
>> 10-4, that i know of. >> reporter: near benton, arkansas. >> everybody was screaming, crying, and i was scared because everybody was bleeding and i had blood all over my t-shirt. >> reporter: that bus sliding and tumbling just off interstate 30. just before 3:00 in the morning. some of the injured children and adults stuck in the wreckage. >> we're still working on getting some of the ones trapped out. >> reporter: the injured flooding an area hospital for treatment. >> lots of lacerations, broken bones. >> reporter: the bus was carrying members of a tennessee youth football team that just played a championship game in dallas. the team was headed home to memphis when the tragic crash happened. >> it's an eye opener. it's probably going to hurt the traveling experience for the rest of these kids' lives. they may not want to send their kids on another bus. >> reporter: this morning, vestigators say they're including whether fatigue played a role in the deadly crash. government records show that one of the company's buses was in a
7:13 am
crash that involved another company was fined for apparently allowing a driver to operate one of the buses without proper licensing. but this morning, a grieving community is desperate to know what went wrong on monday. george? >> such a tragedy. thanks very much. we have breaking news overseas now. after three weeks of violent riots in paris and other major cities over the cost of living, the french prime minister has agreed to suspend fuel tax hikes for six months to appease the protesters saying, no new taxes should put in danger the unity of the nation. we'll move on to troubling developments in the search for the american woman who vanished in costa rica. officials have found a body near the airbnb where she was staying. eva pilgrim has the latest. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. a florida family en route to identify the body. it was found near airbnb where
7:14 am
that woman was last known to be. this morning, new footage of what is now a crime scene in costa rica. >> second day, hot springs. >> reporter: stefaniak, who was on a week-long vacation celebrating her 36th birthday with friends -- >> welcome me to my birthday. >> reporter: -- stayed in the country an extra day alone at this airbnb after dropping her sister-in-law off at the airport. her family desperate to find her. her brother, carlos, flying to costa rica retracing her final known steps coming here to the home she stayed in looking for any clues. >> this is weird that she didn't message anybody. it was her birthday. you know what i mean? that's when it hit me there's something wrong here. >> reporter: he repeatedly looked at the final text from his sister before her phone died. stefaniak texting that she was too tired to go out and it's raining hard, power went off, super sketchy. stefaniak's family says she checked into her flight home at
7:15 am
some point and that the owner of the airbnb told them she left with her bags the next morning at 5:00 a.m. but her family says she scheduled an uber to pick her up at 8:30 in the morning to take her shopping. she didn't show up. >> her flight wasn't until 1:30. she's only 20 minutes or 30 minutes from the airport. so this story doesn't make sense. >> reporter: officials say they will test what appears to be blood flood inside the home. they haven't named any suspects yet. we do know that she had devices with her. now to an alligator attack. an 85-year-old man was bitten on the foot, then rushed to the hospital. victor oquendo is in miami with the very latest and, victor, the gator was caught with a shoe in its mouth. >> reporter: that's right, michael. good morning. this was a close call but thankfully that man will be okay. wildlife officials are confident they caught the alligator that attacked especially after finding that white sneaker inside its mouth. these trappers are about to pull
7:16 am
that thrashing nine-foot alligator out of this central florida lake. look closely as it gets closer to shoe. inside its mouth, the gator releases what it took from its victim, a white sneaker left bobbing in the water. >> attack at big cypress boulevard. be advised he's actively getting there. >> reporter: it took three men to pin down the gator. florida official wildlife says it bit an 85-year-old man on the foot behind his home at a retirement community. >> his wife heard him screaming supposedly and i guess his neighbor came to his rescue but they found the shoe, the white sneaker the guy had on. >> reporter: that man taken to the hospital in stable condition. experts say encounters like these are on the rise. >> as the alligator populations continue to grow, and we continue to develop in these beautiful waterfront areas, you're going to have these conflicts. >> reporter: in the last few months alarming alligator sightings and deadly attacks. this summer, a florida woman walking her dogs was dragged
7:17 am
into a lake and killed by a 12-foot alligator. also in south carolina, this massive 12-foot gator is frequently spotted strolling through a golf course and this seven-foot alligator seen scaling a fence in a backyard. look at what was lurking on a doorstep in louisiana. just because a gator is trapped does not mean the danger is over. this alligator knocking one officer to the ground and whipping another with its tail as it's being loaded onto the back of a pickup. attacks like this recent one are rare. florida fish and wildlife hoping to learn more about what happened here later when they interview the victim. michael? >> all right. thank you. boy, sure scares you about those gators. >> sure does. >> gotta be careful out there. now to a hero trooper who is lucky to be alive after a terrifying accident. want to you take a look. that's florida highway patrol trooper mathil patel. standing with another man at the scene of an accident when a car is rear ended, spins out of control right towards them both, and the trooper pushing the man
7:18 am
out of the way before he gets hit himself. thankfully trooper patel is recovering and is expected to be discharged from the hospital today. the crash is under investigation. but that is truly a selfless act. >> his first thought was for the other guy. >> exactly. >> glad that he's going to be okay. let's go back to ginger, a cold blast this week? >> not just one, but three. progressively colder air. it will come in with lake-effect snow. erie, pennsylvania, had a little. that's all you need to have accidents and arctic air settles in. by friday morning this is what it will feel like, 12 in chicago, 16 in pittsburgh. your local weather in 30 seconds. first the tuesday trivia sponsored by target.

7:33 am
is over. if this gets out my life is absolutely over. >> reporter: according to the complaint the next day the extorter threatened to post videos of her on other sites unless she sent a new private video in exchange. "you have until midnight to send me something good or i will post videos, your name, info everywhere then i send to people you know. you can enjoy being famous." she alleges that when she didn't respond over the next couple of weeks the extorter posted the video on more sites and then created an e-mail address using her name and e-mailed the video to her friends, family and colleagues, along with this message that read in part, dear friends, i am trying to recruit some friends to help me out a friend's art project for which i got to be the model. it's a little daring. let me know what you think. >> it was just absolutely traumatizing because these are people i went to law school with. they're friends. they're co-workers and they were sent a link to what looks like

"you are you're buying peace, easy, right." >> you don't go into a hotel room and think something like this can happen to you and it happened to me. if we can spare one more person from this happening to, then it would be worth it. >> reporter: she alleges she might not be the only victim. >> we've investigated extensively as far as we can go without hilton's help at this point and that investigation has revealed that there is at least another victim. >> reporter: a spokesperson for the hotel responded overnight telling abc news, the safety and security of our guests is our highest priority. we will continue to work with the authorities to discover the perpetrator and see that she/he is held accountable. this particular hilton hotel in albany says they recently went through a complete renovation. they did not find any recording devices. a spokesperson for hilton hotels

[ applause ] >> reporter: it's only fitting dane threw out the very first lawful snowball in celebration. and severance board members say they're hoping to do a big giant snowball fight and have a special day for dane for working so well with local government. >> and i'm sure the bowtie helped. he's the first kid in 100 years who decided to do this? >> i know it's kind of surprising. over the past 60 years the town board invited kids to come down and to learn about lawmaking so
7:38 am
they use this snowball fight law to motivate them to be active in government. dane just happened to be the first one to actually get it done. >> wow. >> so, listen, we have a 7-year-old making millions and a 9-year-old that's changing laws. pretty good. what are we doing? >> changing the world upside down. >> exactly. thank you so much. coming up, police arrested a driver saying he was going 70 on the highway for seven miles while asleep, apparently driving on autopilot. we'll tell you the creative way they stopped him. they stopped him. or atopic dermatitis, you never know how your skin will look. and it can feel like no matter what you do, you're itching all the time. but even though you see and feel your eczema on the surface of your skin, an overly sensitive immune system deep within your skin might actually be causing your eczema. so help heal your skin from within. with dupixent. dupixent is not a steroid, and it continuously treats your eczema even when you can't see it. at 16 weeks, more than 1 in 3 patients

big retailers want you to use their store-branded cards more than ever. amazon, target and lowe's offer 5% back on all purchases. costco offers 4% off gas and 2% off everything else. and then there are the traditional cash back cards like discover, chase freedom and american express blue that have cash back offers that are pretty appealing. so as you tackle holiday shopping, layer in the savings to create your own black friday every day. so how much can you save? well, let me give you an example. i found shoes for $75. first i used the honey browser extension. find a code, book, 30% off. then i use a cash back credit card, another 2% off and because i started my shopping trip through the ebates online service another 10% back. total savings, $28.80 and, george, that really adds up this time of year. >> we saw it right there. thank you, becky. >> let's go to ginger. >> your "gma" moment.

night one and night two is the harder night. >> reporter: night two, 3:43 a.m., i had to go in to soothe him. that just makes him angrier. ben tries too. >> he's been up for almost 45 minutes and about a half hour of pretty intense screaming. time to check in again with the baby sleep boss. >> what did he sound like? >> it sounded like crying like a baby dinosaur. >> crying like a baby dinosaur. >> he's made it two nights in a row with no bottle so that should be the worst of it. >> reporter: night three, miles stirs a little at the usual time but he falls back asleep. a total of 11 hours. dana warns there can be a regression on night five but miles keeps sleeping 11 hours a night soothing himself back even if he wakes up. this is pretty exciting. i slept through the night.
