like this for one who wasn't a pole vaulter or one like this who didn't really play water polo. later on this week, more parents and former coaches are expected to appear before a judge here. and then next week, actresses lori loughlin and felicity huffman are due in court. michael. >> all right, thank you so much, linsey. now to a startling new study about marijuana. researchers in colorado finding that consuming marijuana in an edible form is leading to a spike in emergency room visits. abc's clayton sandell has more in denver. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. you know, recreational weed has been legal here in colorado since to 2014. but now, researchers here at the university of colorado hospital say it's not smoking pot but edible marijuana, things like pot-infused brownies, candy and drinks causing the spike in visits to the emergency room. even though edibles make up only 0.3% of all pot sales, they're linked to more than 10% of all
7:02 am
e.r. visits, that is 33 times higher than expected. and the symptoms are serious. they range from hallucinations and panic attacks, to irregular heart beats and even heart attacks. researchers say one of the reasons this is happening is when you smoke marijuana you feel the effects immediately. but when you eat a marijuana product, the high could take three hours to reach its peak. and because it takes so long to kick in, people think the edible isn't working. so they mistakenly take more and more of it and that can lead to an overdose, michael. >> and clayton, what is the marijuana industry saying about this study? >> reporter: well, the industry has long urged people to follow the directions and take the proper dosages and especially when it comes to those candies and cookies, keep them out of the reach of children, michael. >> all right, thank you so much, clayton sandell. robin. now to that spring break brawl that was caught on camera. a masked gunman approaching a group at a gas station in florida, and they fought right back. gio benitez is here with that story. good morning, gio.
7:03 am
>> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. those spring breakers turning the tables on that armed robber early sunday morning in oakland park, florida. incredibly nobody was hurt. caught on camera, spring breakers fighting back. this massive brawl erupting at a florida gas station. a group of cousins from indiana on vacation in south beach turning the tables on a would-be robber. it started when the men stopped for gas after a night of partying. they're then approached by a robber in a mask, pointing a gun. but the friends decided not to cooperate and put the man in a headlock. >> my cousin jacob gets on top of him. i'm in there trying to wrestle around for the gun. >> reporter: the cousins tackling the man, struggling for the weapon. >> at any time it could have gone off. >> reporter: then the robber's accomplice rushes in, trying to break up the fight. but one of the friends manages to grab the loaded gun, pointing it back at his attackers. the brawl finally ending with the suspects fleeing the scene and luckily no one was hurt. >> it turned out the best way possible for us. >> reporter: yeah, and while it worked out for this group, law enforcement experts insist that you should not confront an armed robber.
7:04 am
just tell them you'll cooperate. give them what you have. that's your best chance. >> good advice there. okay, gio, thanks. and now to the person with the hottest hand in the men's tournament. and he's not even playing. he's the only person to pick all games right in the first two rounds. and we spoke to the master of march madness overnight and t.j. holmes is here with that. >> all games? >> you the master? oh, sorry. >> he spoke to the master. >> oh, oh, okay. >> master of nothing is what i'm called around here. i think this is going to last so far. no, this guy is 48-48 in picking games. tens of millions of people submit brackets. he's the only one ever since we tracked this to get it perfect so what's his secret? he didn't overthink it. when texas tech took out buffalo, that win shattered one of the last two remaining perfect ncaa brackets. >> i was really disappointed. but it happens. >> reporter: now out of tens of
7:05 am
millions that were submitted, there's only one perfect bracket still standing. >> it's really unbelievable. i didn't expect this at all. >> reporter: it belongs to this guy. 40-year-old gregg nigl, a neuropsychologist from ohio. he's the first person to make it to the sweet 16 with an unblemished record. the odds of that happening, 1 in 281 trillion. >> this was fourth bracket i filled out and it was really just for fun so i wasn't even checking it. i didn't know until today. >> reporter: so what's nigl's secret? >> you can't watch every college game so you got to watch some brgywi the tes at youike. >> in and out! >> reporter: this is the longest any bracket has remained perfect in the history of the tournament. >> scores! >> reporter: 13 seed u.c. irvine beat kansas state for their first tournament victory. and mississippi state falling to 12 seed liberty. he nailed that one, too. >> the liberty flames are still dancing!
7:06 am
>> reporter: but with nigl's luck and 15 games to go, could this michigan native really pull off total perfection? >> i have tennessee and gonzaga. and then i picked gonzaga to win it all. i'm pretty sure it's not going to remain perfect. but if i go wrong, i hope michigan is going to go further than i have them. >> i got some skeptics up here on the set. how did he pull it off? stay with me here. this is the first time -- only the second time actually in 40 years that every one, two and three seed has made it to the sweet 16. meaning, if all of you just picked the top seeds in your office pool, you would be winning it right now. this is rare for the tournament to not see that many upsets so a little luck. but if he just picks the top seeds -- >> the odds are 1 in 281 trillion? >> it's never happened before. so this is the first time and we're seeing it -- george. >> i have some homework for you. what are the odds on getting a perfect bracket all the way through? >> okay, the homework, like you said, let me get back to you.
7:07 am
but we have bigger upsets in the women's tournament. >> yes, we do. thank you. >> now, this has been fun. the women's tournament, the 11 seed, missouri state, the lady bears here pulled off a big upset over iowa state, the number three seed. we don't see as many huge upsets in the women's game. but this was a huge one for them. this is the first time they've been to the sweet 16 since 2001. yes, of course, a good celebration, but the other big game, which is the one i was interested in last night, it was a good back and forth. the ucla bruins, the lady bruins, this was a great game. they're six seed. they beat the number three seed, the maryland team there. this was a great back and forth. watch the celebration -- we have that one from the locker room. there you go. >> they're doing the kiki challenge. ♪ >> but michaela onyenwere for the lady bruins had 31, a great game. >> wide open with the women's
7:08 am

7:20 am
welcome back to "gma." that's one of the standout moments on "american idol" last night. johanna jones with a knockout performance of chris isaak's "wicked games." but that wasn't even the highlight of her night. yeah, wait till you see what happens next. it's good. check that out later. >> the talent is outstanding this season on "american idol." as you said, michael, that's ahead. but first, the top headlines we're following. u.s. investigators finally have their hands on the black box data from that doomed ethiopian airlines jet. they're expected to issue a preliminary report later this week. this, as boeing tries to roll out a software fix by tomorrow. and apple is unleashing what's being called the netflix for news. a subscription service combining news from about, oh, 300 publications. they're also launching an apple credit card and apple tv plus. everyone from oprah to big bird at the big event. but no details yet on how much
7:21 am
the streaming service will cost. and the first-ever all-female space walk was supposed to take place this friday. you know what? it's been put on hold after nasa realized they don't have enough suits in the right size to fit the astronauts. >> really? >> they won't be able to make them in time. they both wear a size medium. you cannot make this stuff up. >> yeah, that's -- wow. >> a strange one. we're going to move on to new trouble for michael avenatti. he is the lawyer who became famous for taking on president trump by representing porn star stormy daniels. he's withxt ica, nk and wire fraud in another. pretty dramatic fall. paula faris is here with the details. good morning, paula. >> reporter: good morning, george. good morning, everyone. two separate cases. one here in new york. another in california. both carry severe penalties and decades of jail time if convicted. overnight, michael avenatti defiant.
7:22 am
>> i am highly confident that when all of the evidence is laid bare in connection with these cases, when it is all known, when due process occurs, that i will be fully exonerated and justice will be done. >> reporter: the celebrity attorney speaking after appearing in federal court facing charges of trying to extort nike for millions. >> the charges are based on avenatti's scheme to extract more than $20 million in payments from a public company. >> reporter: prosecutors say it happened quickly. last week, avenatti brazenly confronted nike lawyers after a client of his, an amateur basketball coach, lost a contract with the company. >> avenatti repeatedly pressured the company to agree to pay or risk having avenatti hold a press conference that he claimed would dramatically drive down the stock price of the company and its market value. >> reporter: authorities say, avenatti intended to divulge what he called damaging information, claiming that nike illegally paid high school
7:23 am
basketball players and their families. in a wiretapped call avenatti warning nike, i'm not expletive around adding, i'm not continuing to play games. you guys know enough now to know you've got a serious problem. and it's worth more in exposure to me to just blow the lid on this thing. the tough-talking attorney rose to public consciousness as stormy daniels' crusader against donald trump. and at one point, he even planned on running for president. a meteoric rise and potential fall. the alleged co-conspirator in this case is reported to be another big-time hollywood attorney, mark geragos, who has defended the likes of michael jackson to jussie smollett, and has represented nike's brand ambassador colin kaepernick. geragos was not indicted and has not been charged. on monday, avenatti announcing, he would hold a press conference, tweeting that he would soon expose a basketball scandal perpetrated by nike. just 15 minutes after that
7:24 am
tweet, he was arrested. and this is not the extent of his troubles. in california, avenatti faces charges of bank and wire fraud, prosecutors saying he embezzled a client's money in order to pay his own expenses and debts. now, avenatti was released on $300,000 bond. this morning, he is tweeting that the public will learn about nike's cover-up and crimes and that he never attempted to extort the company. but you guys, prosecutors have avenatti on a wiretap threatening to take $10 billion off nike's market cap. and, again, if convicted serious trouble. the fraud charges carry a max of 50 years, here in new york, 47 years for the extortion charges. >> a long time. let's bring in dan abrams for more on this. now, the nike case more sensational, but it's actually the california fraud case that could cause more trouble. >> he has a more obvious defense which is i'm just talking the way tough lawyers do. we make threats, we say you don't settle and you'll get this or that, et cetera, not saying
7:25 am
it's a winning defense but it's a defense. it is much harder to defend against things like wire fraud and bank fraud, tax issues. why? because they have documents. they have paperwork. and as a result, it's not a sort of ambiguity as to what did i say versus what didn't i say. so, if i'm michael avenatti right now, i'm much more concerned about the california case right now than i am about the new york case. >> you say lawyers talk tough all the time. where do you think he crossed the line in the nike case? >> it comes to the nuance. says know, you should hire myself and it appears mark geragos to do an internal investigation for $15-plus million. and they say, well, we've never heard of anyone doing an investigation for over $10 million and he says, well, you know, fine, let's just call it, 22.5 million and call it a day. and so really what prosecutors are saying is that was all a charade. he wasn't really talking about the need to do an investigation. he was talking about a payoff. and it's that follow-up
7:26 am
conversation, the prosecutors will say, adds validity to their argument. >> you mentioned mark geragos, of course, we have seen him on this program many times. unnamed co-conspirator but not charged. >> right. and this is just with regard to the new york case. you have to wonder, is he cooperating? do they not have enough evidence against him? what is the issue there but he definitely has not been charged. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. michael. all right, george, now to that missing dog mystery. a prize-winning show dog named gale vanished after being checked into a flight and steve osunsami is there in atlanta and, steve, they're still searching for gale this morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, michael. at one point, people here searching for the dog thought that they spotted it. but then it ran away. and while this airport, more than 4700 acres of it is certainly people secure, it's not dog secure. 22-month-old gale has a number of people on her tail this morning. two wildlife biologists, atlanta airport staffers, even people from the faa and customs and border protection are all trying
7:27 am
to find the missing show dog. she somehow escaped her crate saturday as she was being loaded on to a klm flight. to amsterdam. her owner speaking to us from the netherlands in a panic. >> we're 8 hours and about 8,000 miles away. there's a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness because there's nothing you can do. >> reporter: the dog, a pedigree american stafford terrier was in atlanta over the weekend competing at a show. >> it's horrific. we're really missing a family m. we don't have any children. the dogs are our children. >> reporter: in a statement the airline who lost the dog says it expresses its sincerest regrets and is actively working with the atlanta airport to search for the dog. the dog could be anywhere. the airport is gigantic and often the busiest in the world. and airport authorities can't rule out that the dog has escaped the campus. >> our poor wildlife biologist has been out all day yelling and screaming. i talked to him late today. he's lost his voice. our deputy general manager was driving around the airfield all day.
7:28 am
>> reporter: another show dog went missing when she escaped her crate at jfk in 2006 and hasn't been seen since. there is one ray of sunshine to this story. and that is that this dog has a microchip. so, as any dog owner knows if a stranger finds it and takes it so a vet or pound, she can be possibly reunited with her owners. >> hopefully she will be found. thank you so much. coming up, the warning after an instagram star suffered a stroke doing a yoga pose. come on back. come on back. living with hiv? ♪ keep being you. keep loving. keep aspiring. keep striving. and ask your doctor about biktarvy. biktarvy is a complete one-pill,

back now with that warning after an instagram star suffered a stroke while doing a yoga move. now she's sharing her story and amy is here with those details. good morning, amy. >> hey, good morning, robin. rebecca leigh is a social media star and she was recording a yoga session for her fans when something went terribly wrong when she pushed herself too far. she's a yoga enthusiast inspiring her more than 26,000 followers on instagram with poses like these. but 40-year-old rebecca leigh is also a survivor. in 2017 surviving a stroke after filming a particularly difficult handstand for her fans. that move landing her in the hospital. at the time writing on instagram, i had an awful headache. i had some strange visual issues and felt a lot of pain in my neck and head. i tried to put my hair in a ponytail and my left arm was numb.
7:33 am
i physically could not get my brain to tell my arm what i wanted it to do. adding, no pose or picture worth what i have been going through. don't be so tempted to push over your limits. leigh learned that she had torn a major blood vessel in her neck and that tear, causing a clot to go to her brain. and this morning, she's sharing her story in the hopes of warning others. in a new interview with media outlet swns, leigh says she suffered from neck pain and migraines in the past but knew this was different. it was terrifying. she says it was like a curtain coming down all around me. my pupils were different sizes. i knew something was very, very wrong. that's when she and her husband, kevin, went to the emergency room, and an mri scan revealed the shocking news. i couldn't believe it. there was no way that someone my age in my health could have a stroke. it's not just yoga. it can occur when the neck is put in extreme positions.
7:34 am
it wasn't a yoga move but an appointment with a chiropractor that led to the sudden death of 34-year-old playboy model katie may in 2016. the coroner finding neck manipulation tore one of her arteries and just like leigh cut off blood flow to her brain. she died a few days later in the hospital. this morning, both cases acting as stark warnings of how sensitive our bodies can be at any age. it is some frightening stuff there. rebecca, by the way, was back on the yoga mat a month after the stroke. saying, if she didn't start again as soon as she could, she never would because that fear is crippling. when you do yoga you feel the pressure in your head and neck but you don't know what's too far sometimes. >> you really don't. thank you, amy. dr. jen ashton will talk more about this. tell us more. >> so two important causes of stroke that people need to understand. it can be caused by hemorrhage or bleeding or it can be caused by a clot.
7:35 am
those are the two main categories. and if you think of this tube as one of the arteries in the brain, or in this case really in the neck, one of the vertebral arteries, if it gets kinked a clot can form. if it gets torn that can cause hemorrhage. there have been case reports as we heard in amy's piece of this rarely occurring with chiropractic treatments, beauty salon. it's tully -- actually called the beauty salon syndrome. >> my mom suffered that when she got older. >> any extreme position of your neck is kind of when they say, doc, it hurts when i do this. the doc says, don't do that. >> there are different types. are the symptoms the same? >> the symptoms are the same. that's what people really need to know. we go by the acronym f.a.s.t. that stands for facial droop, arm weakness, difficulty with speech. "t" is for time, it's time to call 911, because minutes matter when you have a stroke. >> we'll have you back. justin bieben chamber. >> interesting. >> working you overtime. >> 8:00 hour. >> double dose.

the show sort of does. it sometimes chaotic but it becomes its own choreography like me kind of putting on her bracelet and her shoes and, you know, and while she's doing lines. and it's just this kind of comic dance that we do. i'm going to really miss that. >> and tim, you play jonah ryan. but you were white house aide then you were a congressman and now you're a presidential candidate. >> running for president. >> so what are you going to miss most about your character jonah? >> i think the thing i'll miss about him is that he wakes up every single day and without considering any of the evidence, thinks that he's going to do a [ eat job. >> like politics. >> he has no -- he has no discernible skill, talent, char he's like, you know what? today's going to go great. >> today is the day. >> very entitled. >> matt, what about you, your character mike, you were selina's spokesman until you got fired. >> correct. thanks for bringing that up. thank you.
8:24 am
you celebrated that. >> i did say a little too much excitement. you got fired. you got fired. what are you going to miss most about mike? >> well, in terms of the big show i'll miss those table reads because that's the only time we get to see the script for the first time and everybody is around the table. so it's like play practice. and then, as far as my character, i think i'll miss how unbelievably dumb mike can be. like i love pushing the stupidity of that character and i love like spilling things on myself, which i actually do in real life a little bit. and eating in every scene. every time there is a food scene i'll tell the prop guy, bring that food a little closer because mike always eat. >> that's it. that's it. >> it's a simple one. >> i couldn't imagine gary ever being fired. what would gary do if he were not with selina? >> maybe he'll go on like match.com and just find another mother figure to carry around her purse. [ applause ] >> yeah.
8:25 am
>> baby bjorn. >> just carry around her target bag. >> we'll take a look at a clip of your great work. so here we go. here's "veep." >> there it is. >> hey. is kim here? >> no. she got fired for sleeping with you. buzzfeed runs a tight ship. i should probably thank you. you are looking at the new deputy senior editor. they're putting me up and all i gotta do is sit on some page for new media innovators. >> what do you know about that, mike 53729 @aol.com. >> i got hacked, mike 53729 -- >> still at aol? >> yeah. >> you going to tell him? >> aol. >> full disclosure, my only email is aol. i've had the same e-mail for to years. >> life imitates art. >> you may be the only person with aol. >> aol is just counting on that walsh money every year. >> i still pay $50 a month, right? >> that's good.
8:26 am
>> but your character, you're not working for selina anymore. we already established you were fired. >> yes. >> what would season one mike tell season seven mike? >> i think he would say, mike, there will be a new thing called social media so learn how to type and learn how to use a mouse. >> yeah. >> and take photos on your phone. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> all the schism things. >> tim, your character, boy, the insults are just hurled your way and i understand that when you're out in real life out walking the streets that some people actually shout some of those names to you? >> they do. not a single one of them is really appropriate for morning television. which also means they're not really appropriate for the grocery store. but it still happens. but there was one that is actually somewhat appropriate but i was -- i remember i was moving a bunch of stuff out of the garage at my house. and a car passed by my house, turned around, came back, the window rolled down, and they went, hey, jonad. and the car just drove away.
8:27 am
they turned around and drove off. >> my other favorite is when someone just said to him, you have the wrong shape. >> that's just my body. that's just what my body looks like. and they're like, sometimes his head is too big for his body. and then sometimes his body is too big for his head. i'm like, guys, that's just me. >> there's a real person here. >> you know, when julia was here yesterday we had an interesting question. if you three were on the ticket who would be the president, vice president and campaign manager and her first word was, well, we'd all be screwed. >> that's exactly what she said? >> those were her first words. >> she said matt would be president. >> oh. >> tony, tony would be vice prt. >> o campaign mager. >> that's dangerous. >> so matt, being that you are president, what would be your campaign slogan? food. >> well done. >> are you guys hungry? >> yes. >> america, are you hungry?
8:28 am
[ cheers and applause ] >> we're hungry for more. don't leave us. >> i know, after seven seasons. >> i know. >> i can't believe it's here. >> yeah. >> i know, it is. it's been -- >> it's going to be a really fun season, though. >> it's a great season. >> it gets more dysfunctional if that can even be possible. and darker. >> julia said too. >> we're drunk on dysfunction pretty much. >> hard to imagine. >> we love every bit of it, man. incredible show, incredible run. and we've got more. it's not done with the "veep" cast members. we have more here tomorrow for "veep" week. and we also have -- the final season premieres sunday night on hbo. you don't want to miss it. thank you, guys. thank you, fellas. coming up next "dumbo" star colin farrell is here live. there he is chilling in the green room.
