ford mustang in the driveway. >> oh, my god, there we go. >> reporter: this morning deadly storms on the move, 30 reported twisters tearing across the heartland this week. much of oklahoma under a state of emergency, overnight dangerous flooding and crippling damage to the state. the storm knocking down power lines, toppling trees onto home with sered cr blocks, the storm claiming at least two lives. first responders frantically searched for a car that was swept away in tulsa. the man found dead inside. the same storm injuring 22 others. in texas an ef-1 twister with 90-mile-per-hour winds uprooted trees and made roads impassable in denton. a man in missouri is lucky to be alive this morning after high water over a bridge swept his truck into a creek. a rescue team found the man clinging to a tree just inches above rushing waters. his truck nowhere in sight. the storm stretching all the way up to michigan. this neighborhood in dearborn
looking more like a lake. dozens of people trapped in their homes. the rescue effort took hours. the disaster taking its toll. >> it's our home. the house is paid for. we have no flood insurance. i can't afford it. >> reporter: the mississippi river in davenport, iowa, submerging the downtown area since tuesday. and people in this region have already endured two days of severe weather and now we are looking at day number three and the main concern now is flooding. cecilia? >> such a scene of destruction out there. marcus, thank you. the threat is far from over. unfortunately, there is also concern about flash flooding. ginger tracking it all. ginger, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. check this out, the radar raining from peoria, illinois to more than 4 inches of rain in this line that is in texas headed towards houston, even some severe storms, the area we're concerned about. barely moves and these rainstorms train along it. what we're going to end up seeing is not just the potential for damaging wind and hail and the two areas you see
highlighted there, that include louisville up to evansville, indiana, but that rain. we could end up seeing three to five inches on top of what's already fallen, david. >> ginger, we'll see you shortly.nte t the major headline developing on capitol hill this morning. the attorney general william barr is now refusing to show up for day two of questioning after he was grilled by senators who wanted to know why he didn't reveal to the american people that bob mueller was not happy with how barr handled the mueller report. barr calling mueller's complaints, his letter, a bit snitty. let's get right to mary bruce. she is live on capitol hill. mary, barr was not happy with how he was going to be questioned today? >> reporter: yes, barr was on thing to the -- objecting to the format here, and proposed long rounds of questioning from committee attorneys. the justice department said that's inappropriate and note he was grilled for more than five hours. barr was forced to defend his actions after it was revealed that mueller himself complained about barr's summary of the report. mueller writing in a letter that barr took his findings out of context and now this morning, david, there are growing calls from democrats for the attorney general to resign. >> this letter was an
extraordinary act, a career prosecutor rebuking the attorney general of the united states, memorializing it in writing, right? >> the letter is a bit snitty and i think it was probably written by one of his staff people. >> reporter: mueller did not make a determination on obstruction of justice, but barr did declaring in his summary that the president did not obstruct. >> so you accepted the report as the evidence? >> yes. >> you did not question or look at the underlying evidence that supports the conclusions in the report? >> no. >> reporter: barr called concerns over his version of the findings mind-bendingly bizarre and took this jab at mueller. >> his work concluded when he sent his report to the attorney general. at that point it was my baby. >> reporter: now instead of hearing from barr again today an empty chair and a fair amount of showmanship. the chairman of the house judiciary committee, jerrold nadler will still gavel in and members will still deliver remarks but it is just another sign of the escalating tension between democrats and this administration.
>> mary, as william barr refuses to come back for day two there will actually be an empty chair there. many are wondering if mueller will testify. before the american people. what are you hearing on that front? how likely is it? >> reporter: over in the senate republicans are making clear they have no plans to call up mueller but in the house chairman nadler is eyeing a may 15th date for a possible hearing, david. there's nothing firm on the books just yet but the attorney general says he does not plan to stand in the way. >> all right, long day ahead. see you on "world news tonight." thanks. >> you'll have a lot to say then. >> that's for sure. now to an incredible story of heroism in that deadly college shooting. one of the two students killed in the attack rushing the shooter, knocking him off his feet sacrificing his own life to save others. steve osunsami is at the university of north carolina there in charlotte with more and steve, the shooter, we hear is going to be in court today. >> reporter: he is. he's going to appear in court this afternoon. i'm standing in front of kennedy hall where those two students were killed. behind me you'll see that students have started a memorial of flowers and candles that they placed on the front steps in
front of the building. the accused gunman has not yet entered a plea. he's facing multiple charges including murder and attempted murder. charlotte area police this morning say there is a hero in the middle of this tragedy and it's this young man who tried to stop the alleged gunman and was shot dead. police say 22-year-old trystan terrell was standing up from his seat in the middle of an anthropology class gunning down students when 21-year-old riley howell made a decision to knock the accused gunman off his feet. howell was shot dead, but police say he saved lives. >> we talk about heroism. the first and foremost hero as far as i'm concerned, and his name is riley howell. >> reporter: in a statement his parents shared that he loved the lake and was friends with anyone and everyone, a big muscular guy with a huge heart. he and 19-year-old ellis parlier was mourned at a campus vigil wednesday night. 19-year-old drew piscaro and
three other students who were wounded are expected to recover. >> we have multiple victims in here. we'll need multiple ambulances. >> reporter: jack seigel was in the classroom. >> all of a sudden, bang, bang, bang, bang and then everyone just started running. >> reporter: he believes he would have been hurt or killed if he were sitting on the same side of the class as the accused shooter. >> it could have been your last day. >> it definitely could have. if he had went into the other entrance, i would be dead. i wouldn't here talking to you right now. i would be dead. >> reporter: this all happened on the final day of classes. witnesses say the accused gunman was sitting there for ten minutes before he got up and started shooting. finals have been moved to sunday. graduation will take place as scheduled and one of those victims who was hospitalized will walk and get her degree. cecilia? >> gosh, that gives us all chills. steve osunsami, thank you so much. we are going to turn to the chaos in venezuela. massive protests against embattled president nicolas maduro. he appears to be holding on for
now but the trump administration wants him out. the faa ordering all u.s. carriers to cease operations there as of today imposing a minimum altitude of 26,000 feet for flights in venezuela's airspace citing political instability there. senior foreign correspondent ian pannell has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, venezuela's chaos intensifying. a journalist covering the turmoil here in caracas injured by an explosion in the street, microphone still in hand as he's rushed off to safety. tens of thousands of people taking to the streets to protest against president maduro demanding change and freedom. his security forces firing tear gas as the crisis deepens. on a regular basis we're seeing injured protesters being rushed off on motor bike ambulances and being taken to hospitals nearby. [ chanting ] opposition leader juan guaido urging the country's armed forces to join the opposition
and defect against maduro. tensions growing as the u.s. doubles down on its support for the opposition leader. acting secretary of defense patrick shanahan having this to say after canceling his trip this week. >> when people say there are, you know, all options are on the table, they literally are. >> reporter: meanwhile, supporters of president maduro rallying behind him. seen here unwavering this morning still in firm control of the military. senior administration and defense officials now all saying that all options remain on the table. meanwhile, guaido, the opposition leader calling for people to come out on to the streets once again today. neither side is backing down. for now no sign the president is about to be pushed out of power. david? >> our thanks to ian pannell this morning. in the meantime, we turn now to the hundreds of passengers
and crew reportedly trapped on a cruise ship this morning because of a measles emergency. that ship has now been quarantined on the caribbean island of st. lucia after authorities confirm someone on board has the measles and others have likely been exposed. abc's victor oquendo is live at the port of miami. victor, what can you tell us? >> reporter: awell, good mornin, david. st. lucia's chief medical officer deciding not to take chances their. they've been following the measles outbreak in the united states now deciding to keep the ship quarantined and docked. this morning, a cruise ship in the caribbean with about 300 people on board is under quarantine after a case of the measles was found. >> we got information early this morning through two sources, two reputable sources, that there was a confirmed case of measles on board a cruise ship which visited our island. >> reporter: the government of st. lucia ordering crew and passengers to stay on the ship while it investigates. the cdc is already tracking the worst spike in the u.s. in decades. more than 700 cases across 22 states. the outbreak mostly hitting people who are unvaccinated.
>> first starts with cold symptoms, fever, cough, runny nose and sometimes red eyes and that can last for about three to four days before the rash comes on. >> reporter: if an unprotected person is exposed to the measles they have a 90% chance of contracting the disease. >> it's a very, very contagious virus. it's probably the most contagious virus that humans get. >> reporter: now an investigation is under way, but in the meantime, no one is allowed to leave that ship. robin? >> understandable. victor, thank you. now to a scary bounce house accident in washington state. five students injured, one critically when the inflatable went flying in the wind. gio benitez is here with that story for us. good morning, gio. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. yeah, witnesses say they were all having a great time when out of nowhere the inflatable went airborne as high as 20 feet in the air and came crashing down injuring those students. this morning, a dramatic moment caught on camera injuring five high school students. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: listen to the wind as we watch a bounce house being
tossed around during a student body event at a high school in zillah, washington. the bounce house carried more than 240 feet by a gust of wind wednesday afternoon. one student receiving cpr before being air lifted. >> it was pretty crazy. i don't know how this could happen. >> reporter: bounce house injuries have been going up in recent years. one estimate says the number of injuries equals more than 30 children a day or about 1 child every 45 minutes. each incident just as terrifying like this bounce house going airborne in 2017 at a carnival in south carolina. >> get out of here. get out of here. >> reporter: and a spiral of wind makes this bounce house roll over. then takes it into the air with three small kids inside. incredibly, all survived. >> thank goodness, and this morning, zillah high school, where this occurred, says their hearts go out to the students, parents, staff and looking into

bringing tornadoes and floods overnight forcing water rescues. also attorney general william barr is now refusing to show up for his second day of testimony on capitol hill. this after that heated senate showdown over the mueller report. some democrats are now demanding that barr resign. all right, guys, take a look at this one. one of my favorite stories of the day. true fan here. sacrificing -- there he is -- his fries, oh, foul ball. drops them right there. that's a rough one. >> but he gets the ball so it's all worth it but then, wait, watch. watch again. later in the game, talk about luck. another ball right at him, this time it takes down his pizza. he was hungry. he had a lot of snacks. >> pizza and french fries. >> to top it off, the dodgers lost to the san francisco giants, 2-1 and with that i say, go, giants. >> uh-huh. >> your home team. >> more pizza and fries on the way for sure. we turn now in this half hour to the new twist in the
college admissions scandal. a new report this morning says more parents could soon be facing charges as we learn more about the family accused of paying more than $6 million to get their daughter into school. abc's linsey davis is right here with the latest. hey, linsey. >> reporter: good morning to you, david. it's not clear just what the parents or student knew about how their daughter got a spot at stanford but the family from beijing did reportedly pay seven figures to make it happen. and just yesterday a california real estate developer and his wife were the first parents to appear in court to formally enter a plea of guilty. overnight, abc news confirming the identity of the wealthy family from china that allegedly paid $6.5 million to help their daughter yusi zhao secure a spot at stanford. >> getting into the right college will set the trajectory for the rest of their life. don't leave this to chance. >> reporter: the family was introduced to rick singer, the so-called mastermind of "operation varsity blues" through an employee at morgan stanley who has since been terminated. no one in the family has been charged. stanford telling us they didn't
receive any of that money, all this as the first set of parents formally plead guilty on conspiracy to commit mail fraud charges in the admissions scheme. bruce and davina isackson silent as they exit a boston federal court wednesday accused of paying singer nearly $600,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into elite colleges. their elder daughter lauren isackson admitted as a member of the soccer team despite having no prior competitive soccer experience. prosecutors are now recommending the low end of sentencing in federal prison for the couple. 37 to 46 months for bruce would faced additional money laundering and tax fraud charges and 27 to 33 months for his wife, but not all of the 33 parents are planning to plead guilty. actress lori loughlin and her fashion designer husband are among the 19 parents indicating their intention to fight the charges. prosecutors claim the duo paid half a million dollars to get their daughters into usc. the younger daughter, 19-year-old olivia jade, spotted
on wednesday in beverly hills, in sharp contrast to her fame as a social media influencer star, jade has been keeping a low profile since the scandal broke. now more stories are emerging of other families possibly implicated in the scandal. "the new york times" reported that prosecutors have informed additional parents they're currently under investigation. the isacksons could have faced 20 years for the conspiracy to commit mail fraud charges and the husband could have faced more than double that for the conspiracy to commit money laundering and tax fraud charges. they're expected to be sentenced july 31st. guys? >> linsey, thanks so much. we're going to bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams. i want to get back to something linsey reported on there, dan. several other parents including felicity huffman have plea agreement, not official in court. many others like lori loughlin, they're fighting this so what does this new case say about what could be coming for them? >> "a," that it all comes down to a lot of money.
the fact that they're recomme recommending what they're calling the low end of the federal sentencing guidelines is still a lot of time for a crime like this. we're talking about for these two parents, the prosecutors recommend the low end meaning 27 months, 37 months for the father here. that's serious time. >> a lot of time. >> and so you can realize or at least understand why someone like lori loughlin may be thinking, hmm, is this worth it or should i roll the dice and take this to trial? >> well, with the isacksons they have agreed to cooperate. what possibly could they -- substantial assistance could they provide and could it lead to other indictments? >> that's the question. i think it's got to mean they're going to help potentially bring down their friends, people who introduced them to singer, other people who knew or worked with him. i think that's why we're talking about the possibility of future indictments here is the more people who cooperate, the larger the umbrella it becomes of potential defendants and they may be finding out things they didn't know originally in the investigation because of the
people who are now cooperating meaning parents who may end up turning on fellow parents. >> so you said it all comes down to the money. how does this couple rank in terms of egregious allegations? >> $600,000 is the number. that's a big number. felicity huffman, for example, only $15,000. that's why in her case prosecutors recommending the low end of four to ten months as opposed to here you're talking 27 or 37 months. so that's the key factor to look at when determining how seriously these parents will consider a plea deal. if they're talking about somewhere in the $500,000 plus range where prosecutors are going to be recommending at least two years in prison, you can understand why those people are going to be more reluctant to try to cut a deal than someone who maybe spent a lot less money facing the possibility of a lot less time. felicity huffman, i think, is still hoping she'll serve no time even though she's agreed to a plea. >> dan, as always, appreciate that. i see her somewhere. there she is. hi. hi, diane sawyer.
>> hi friend. >> she is here. she has the first look at her new special report on screen time. this morning the experiment, what can happen when parents spend just two minutes on their phones? come on back. diane will be here. here. mornings were made for better things than rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis. when considering another treatment, ask about xeljanz xr, a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis or active psoriatic arthritis for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. it can reduce pain, swelling, and significantly improve physical function. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened. as have tears in the stomach or intestines, serious allergic reactions, low blood cell counts, higher liver tests and cholesterol levels. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. your doctor should perform blood tests before and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests.

"screen time," diane sawyer reporting about many are talking about, how much of our time do . >> certainly does. >> you've seen those stats. 49 days on average. >> 49 days of our life each year spent on mobile phones on average so we're looking at a month and a half of our life and we're hearing over and over again it's what started us on this about the struggle in american families, parents to kids, relationships, everybody wondering what's happening with the science and our brains, is it something different? most of all people want balance. can we have the ease of our technology and have the fullness of our lives as well? we're going to show you something based on another stat which is on average, on average we pick up the phone 80 times a day, on average. on average and so some researchers wanted to know what that would mean in the lives of kids. are they okay with that or is
this something that they're paying attention to and maybe we don't notice when we're just home alone without the cameras? a mom comes into a laboratory. she's asked to scroll and type and focus on her screen just for two minutes. the videotape showing something adults don't see when we're home alone. >> this is not about parent guilting because parents feel so torn and sometimes we have to get things done. >> reporter: this is 2 1/2-year-old jensen. >> i think he knows she's on the device. >> reporter: it takes 15 seconds for him to get mom melissa to look up from that screen. >> we have some other things to do, mommy. we have some other things to do, mommy. >> he just walks out. >> reporter: this mom is helping researchers replicate a study for us. she's doing something very difficult for her, asked to keep looking down and, remember, it's just for two minutes. >> come on, mommy. >> reporter: he repeats the plea seven times. >> we have another thing to do, mommy.
mommy. you are not listening to me, mommy. listen to me, mommy. >> reporter: and here is another fact about grown-ups and phones. on average we unlock our phones 80 times a day. >> cell phones i think are qualitatively different than other forms of distraction because they're with us all the time. they're ubiquitous. they have been engineered to grab our attention. >> reporter: in the old days phones were chained to the wall. but today a child sees our head go down and our eyes riveted on something else. >> what you have is that little sneak down, you've all noticed it at dinner conversations and basically it means i'm not talking to you anymore. i'm pretending to talk to you. >> reporter: and no one can be sure how long before your eyes look up again. this is little hunter who seemed to have learned when she has to compete with the phone. she might as well just give up.
>> she's sitting down and she's waiting. she knows her mother is not available right now. >> reporter: when it was over -- >> come here. give me a hug. >> reporter: jensen's mom said it was a revelation. >> i was actually really surprised at his reaction. >> reporter: so did this mom. >> i think you don't realize when you're at home in your own environment, i think i'll pay attention more now and not pick my phone up. >> reporter: the american academy of pediatrics recommends that kids under 18 months should avoid screens entirely with the occasional exception of a few minutes of facetime with family. >> i love you. >> i really don't want to be guilt-tripping parents with a study or the implications but i do want this study to be a wake-up call. face-to-face time we have with our children is not just the icing on the cake. it is the cake. it is the place that children learn the most about the world and about themselves.

good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, ceci cecilia. well, bill barr was supposed to be back for round two this morning but instead we'll see an empty chair and fair amount of showmanship from democrats. barr, the doj says that it is inappropriate, the format of this committee, barr is objecting to appear because he didn't want to face rounds of questions from the committee lawyers and the justice department points out that, look, he did face more than five hours of grilling here yesterday. barr was forced to defend his actions after it was revealed that robert mueller himself wrote a letter expressing concerns and complaining about the way that bill barr had summarized his findings. in that letter he wrote that the findings were taken out of context. but bill barr dismissed many of those concerns calling them snitty and said the pushback over his own summary was bizarre and he did point out repeatedly, he ultimately did release the redacted report, but that was not enough for democrats. they say bill barr is misleading the american public and this morning there are growing calls for the attorney general to resign. >> yeah, growing louder by the day.
>>inhe meantime, we turn to this alarming study about teen suicide. researchers this morning, have found a nearly 30% spike in teenage boys taking their own lives after the release of that first season of the popular netflix show "13 reasons why." so we want to bring in our chief medical correspondent dr. jen ashton. this is a deeply personal subject matter for you. >> yep. >> the study found the huge jump in boys even though the program is about a teen girl's suicide. that wasn't terribly surprising it would hit young men. >> not exactly. it's a very complex issue because we do know that boys are four times more likely to die by suicide than girls and suicide in general the third leading cause of death amongst this age group. looking at boys compared to girls they're less likely to be expressive with their feelings and emotions. this is concerning to be sure. >> there are going to be a lot of opinions about this program and its potential effect on people. netflix released a statement and said, this is a critically important topic, and we worked hard to ensure we handle this sensitive issue responsibly.
what can parents do really? if there is a program like this making people feel a certain way, what can they do? >> the most important thing, david, there is something called f.a.c.t.s., and parents need to be on the lookout. if you look at this list, it's "f" stands for feelings of hopelessness, actions that display hopelessness, a change in their behavior, being more e regressed, solitary, threats regarding suicide or situations of stress, humiliation or loss like bullying or a breakup but, again, it's not just the responsibility on the parents. in the media and it's not just television, books, all forms of media, we have to address suicide in a responsible manner because this is a public health crisis. >> we know you just began a new podcast called life after suicide. it's just now available, and you have incredibly personal reporting that starts next week on "gma" and >> your book will help so many people. >> i hope so. >> it already is. thanks, dr. jen. for anyone watching at home, if you know anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts, contact

"endgame" is the most tweeted about movie ever, more than 45 million tweets since the beginning of the year. a third just in the past week. how important do you think this day and age social media plays a part? >> it's a massive part. i think that it drives interest in the film. i think it was beneficial for us that we shot these two movies back to back and they were able to release a year apart because of the cliff hanger at the end of "infinity war." i think it was able to drive conversation all year long to build anticipation for the movie. now, hopefully they're not talking spoilers online right now. >> you bring up a good point. some of the stars put up the hashtag campaign, no spoilers please and went viral too. i want to know when is it okay
to talk about the movie? is there sort of like a moment in time when you say, all right -- >> if there has to be at a certain point, part is for conversation. >> is that today? >> i think it's monday. i think it's monday. >> really. >> give it two weekends. not everybody can get there the first weekend but i think if you haven't seen it yet you should be out there and see it because monday people will be talking about it. >> the question, given the success, we know it's called "avengers: endgame," we don't know how it ends and we won't spoil because it's not monday. it's not really -- can it really be the endgame? what's next? >> it is the end. our job on this movie, what we want -- our goal was to bring a closure to this long journey that we've all been on since the very first "iron man" movie, more than ten years ago now, and really wrap up the story of the original six avengers. that's the goal and hopefully we achieved it in a way that will be exciting and satisfying to audiences.
as far as the future goes, we were most concerned with how do we close the past? how do we close the road? we haven't been thinking about the future. >> we have 20 seconds left. 15 actually. your favorite avenger? >> i would go with cap because we have our deepest investment in cap in terms of the movies that we've made. >> eep even before this? >> he's going to say cap then i have to say iron man. >> spread the wealth.

[ laughter ] >> to be perfectly frank. no, i never did. i couldn't -- i got the script and i read it. it worked so beautifully kind of on -- even if you took out the pokemon element it worked so beautifully as a mystery and a story, and love lost and all these universal themes and i also just felt like the news days is pretty intense and i just -- >> really? >> it's lovely. i just felt like such -- like a fun adventure to be on. something that just takes you away and i love that about it. >> we'll take you away and see a little bit of a clip right now.

ground and everybody gasps, and my daughter was just, like -- >> slow clap. >> yeah, and then even our pediatrician when she met her said, oh, this one, she's shady. you can tell. >> pediatrician says that, you know. >> 100% so i am curious how she's going to -- how she's going to react to it. i mean she's -- yeah, she seem -- she loves villains. i'm surprised she's not selling hand rolled cigarettes in her preschool. >> there is some time. >> right. >> this is a different character for you though. does blake have a favorite in all that you've played? >> oh, i don't know -- i mean i put -- i put every last drop of my blood into these things. >> yeah, you do. >> so kind of birth them in a weird way and but i would say this and "deadpool" are probably, you know because we do it all together. she helps me with all the stuff so -- >> you're bringing this character back to life and takes us back to our childhoods. what else in your childhood, a

the abc family. do you know he's producing a brand-new game show callecalled called "don't"? >> "don't." so excited about that. >> i love that. tell us what's behind it. >> it's a stunt show and it's kind of like the premise is super simple. it's just don't. it's a don't blink. don't laugh. don't -- it's all -- it's families that play against each other and something we're super excited about. so much material there that's hilarious and subversive and fun. >> i could tell he was excited because -- i'm going to read your tweet about his return to abc and ryan reynolds said this, and i quote, abc cruelly canceled canceled "two guys, a girl and a pizza place" 18 years ago.

ballinger met seven years ago while climbing mt. everest. they're both making climbs right now simultaneously. keeping the romance alive half a world away. emily is hanging off the side of el capitan in yosemite and adrian is on mt. everest. we'll talk to them live. adrian first, adrian, i know that your true love has a major challenge ahead of her and we want to tell everyone at home what that challenge is and then come to you. check this out. >> reporter: every day adrian ballinger and emilylimb literally. ballinger has led over 100 expeditions -- >> oh, yeah. >> reporter: on five continents. >> so good to be climbing high again. >> reporter: harrington sponsored by north face is one of the world's top rock climbers, and now both are in training for new, epic ex expeditio expeditions.
>> on our own adventures and we'll be back together soon. here we go. >> reporter: his goal, summiting the nearly 30,000-foot mt. everest for the ninth time. >> 21,000 feet at base camp. >> reporter: her goal, to become the first woman to free climb yosemite national park's el capitan in one day, using the golden gate route, a sheer heavily exposed route. >> i want to get to the top. >> reporter: attached to ropes she won't be using as aid but will catch her if she falls. harrington is using her physical, mental and emotional strength to conquer that granite wall. holding on to the other end alex huddle who in 2017 became the first and only person to free solo el capitan all captured in the oscar winning documentary "free solo." and for this adventure-loving couple, there is no mountain high enough to keep them from supporting each other's dreams. you see what i did there? listen, this is going to be a real feat of morning television
if we can get them both. they're in extreme locations. emily will join us live in el capitan. adrian is live from mt. everest, guys, can you both hear us, good morning. >> good morning. >> well, i think we should start with adrian. >> we will start with adrian. >> you can see emily. emily is in the split screen so everybody can see both of you. emily is attempting the free climb. it's extremely challenging. >> she's literally got a camera on her and hanging off of a granite wall. >> it's crazy. >> what she would do to communicate with her love on national tv. what's your advice for her, the big challenge comes tomorrow. what would you say? >> yeah, it's so wild to be talking to you, em, and right now, what you are doing right now is so much more dangerous and scary than i am. i'm sitting here at base camp, and i want to say, good luck and don't let go, and make good decisions up there. >> make good decisions, yeah. >> anything you want to say, emily? can you hear us? spotty connection. i see her. >> yeah, i can hear you guys. >> yay!
[ applause ] >> adrian's got these high winds. he's got tough challenges there. apparently there's also a flu epidemic at base camp so all of this has to work in his favor in order for him to make this summit. you want to give him a little pep talk? >> yeah, i want you to climb fast and come home! >> oh. >> i miss you. >> emily, we want to know how are you smiling with this giant challenge ahead of you? how are you smiling? >> i mean i'm just doing my best, taking it day by day. i'm trying really hard to stay positive. i'm up here kind of alone right now and i'm just playing lots of music and trying to enjoy myself. t it's a beautiful place. >> i love your attitude. i understand and i want to share with the audience this is your biggest challenge yet? >> yeah, this will probably be my biggest challenge yet.
it's definitely taking a lot of time and effort and energy and it's sort of a culmination of everything i've ever wanted to do in climbing. >> adrian, i hate to compare but it looks like emily is in a slightly more precarious situation than you are. >> you look like you're on vacation. >> she's hanging on a rope but i'm in this beautiful base camp and have a heater i can go back to in a minute and an amazing nepali cook team that is cooking dinner while i'm talking to you. >> you're both an inspiration to us all. you're clearly not a slouch. what will we do with our day back in america. good luck, emily, we are rooting for you. adrian, you as well. >> be safe. >> be safe. both of you. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> good luck, emily. i love you. >> we know one other person in our family loves extreme sport, anything extreme, the weather, is ginger zee and, ginger, they're pretty incredible. >> i am inspired. i've got a goal. that's a bucket list thing. we'll have to do it live.
of course, we'll do it all on tv, but what you are about to get live is the very first look at brand-new baby gorilla born at our parent company, disney's animal kingdom. yes. that is grace. she is just two days old. that's her with her mom and because it is 2019, of course, there was a gender reveal party too. baby grace might be small, yeah, i know. why wouldn't they? the baby is now small but she is fierce and just to let you know as cute as this is gorillas are still an endangered species and the disney animal care experts dedicate their lives to protecting them, so grace is named after the grace gorilla sanctuary in the democratic republic of congo. you can see grace and her parents and good morning. our fog turns to hazy sunshine today. temperatures a little bit above average, about a degree or two warmer than yesterday. warmest tomorrow. a little bit cooler this weekend and still a chance of sh
