7:06 am
miracle. i don't know how we survived. >> reporter: bob gibson, a navy vet was on that flight which was chartered by the department of defense carrying military and civilians from guantanamo bay, cuba, to florida. >> it was chaotic. people were browns bouncing around. they had been thrown around quite a bit. for the first 30 to 45 seconds on the ground, it was pretty much chaos, people screaming. children crying. people were calling out for help. >> reporter: as rescue crews raced to the scene late friday night, they found some passengers waiting on the wings. later huddled together in this hangar. 22 people were taken to the hospital including one child, but everyone is expected to be okay. sadly, there were pets onboard and officials believe they may have died. >> our initial responders did look inside the cargo bay they didn't see anything. they didn't hear any animal noises.
7:07 am
>> reporter: the ntsb says they'll be taking a close look at the weather. a strong storm was passing through the area at the time. the flight data recorder quickly recovered and sent to the laboratory in washington, d.c. >> the 737 800 is a very reliable airplane. no reason it should run off the end of the runway. things like weather factors, pilot error will be the places investigators will be looking. >> reporter: bob gibson is back home in virginia feeling very fortunate. >> things could have turned out a lot worse than they did. i think god had his hand on that plane. that's why i'm sitting here today. >> reporter: gibson joked saying he considered walking home all the way to virginia. but he faced his fear getting on another plane. the ntsb is still looking for different ways to remove the plane. dan? >> victor oquendo with an incredible view there from the st. john's river. victim or, victor thank you so much. we'll move now on to a deadly crash on a freeway in california. flames engulfing a tour bus,

7:09 am

7:10 am
the blast, caught from a distance on surveillance video, causing a huge fire burning for hours. officials say it happened around 9:30 friday night. cleaning crews had just finished their shifts at the silicone manufacturing facility. there were a handful of people still inside. now to the 2020 race heating up, democratic presidential candidates out in force this weekend, targeting key primary states and taking aim at president trump. abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri is on the north lawn with the story. good morning, tara. >> reporter: good morning, eva. here's the thing, the first democratic debate is next month in june. there are more candidates than spots. while they may be aiming their fire at president trump, the real competition is among themselves and many of these candidates have been crisscrossing the country to gain the support to qualify for these debates. >> i remember when people said that barack obama couldn't be elected.
7:11 am
>> reporter: as the democratic field grows wider by the day, with more than 20 candidates, front-runner joe biden in the battleground state of south carolina this weekend, swinging hard at president trump. >> above all else we must defeat donald trump. >> reporter: while president trump claims this is his campaign message -- >> i'll be running on the economy. >> reporter: in the past week he retweeted more than 60 negative messages about joe biden. white house chief of staff mulvaney saying that president trump doesn't see joe biden as the favorite. >> i think he's just the flavor of the day. >> reporter: four declared candidates accidenting on the battle ground of texas. mayor pete buttigieg's speech in dallas without controversy. the openly gay candidate heckled by protesters. >> i'm just thinking about that
7:12 am
scripture that says bless and do not curse. >> reporter: former texas congressman beto o'rourke defending his opponent in his home state. >> the hatred directed towards pete buttigieg last night was not reflective or representative of my state. >> reporter: later, making a bold statement that president trump must faces consequences from the results of the mueller report. >> this is our controversy and democracy must remain. no man, regardless of his position, is above the law. >> reporter: another top topic on the campaign trail was attorney general william barr's handling of the mueller report. a lot of these candidates are calling on him to resign, like senator kamala harris and senator cory booker and mayor julian castro. but there was one leading candidate who didn't go that far and that was senator bernie sanders. >> tara, thank you. speaking of bernie sanders, this morning, the senator from vermont is reacting to the new candidacy, relatively new candidacy of the apparent front-runner joe biden. abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl hit the trail with bernie sanders.
7:13 am
take a listen. >> i'm sure you heard that joe biden said he's the most progressive candidate in this race. >> joe is a good friend of mine. i'm not here to attack joe. joe voted for the war in iraq. i led the effort against it. joe voted for nafta and trade agreements with china. i led efforts against that. joe voted for deregulation of wall street. i voted against that. i think if you look at joe's record and you look at my record, i don't think there's much question about who's more progressive. >> jon is with you now from washington. jon, good morning. i love when people say, he's my friend and i'm not going to attack him, and then they go on and attack him. you'll have much more with your interview with bernie later this morning. do these comments we just heard from the senator indicate that joe biden has a serious problem on his left flank here? >> reporter: well, dan, what they indicate is that we're going to see in the primary a
7:14 am
battle for the ideological soul of the democratic party. these are significant real differences. bernie sanders is not waiting to take aim at joe biden. and, by the way, elizabeth warren is also showing that she's willing to take on biden. this primary is going to be very interesting and, you know, usually you have a period where the candidates wait before taking on one another but that is not happening here. the battle is on. >> yeah, everyone has to make their mark in such a crowded field. let me switch subjects now politically speaking and talk about international affairs. we have new video this morning. north korea kim jong-un personally overseeing some missile launches this weekend. you have secretary of state mike pompeo on the show this morning. what does this mean for president trump who has staked his reputation at least in part on his peace negotiations with this unpredictable dictator? >> reporter: well, i think you point to the key factor here, you see kim jong-un personally
7:15 am
overseeing these military tests. look, this was not a nuclear test. it was not an intercontinental ballistic test. those are the two that north korea has promised to not do while these negotiations go on. but this was clearly a provocation and a provocation overseen by the man that president trump calls his friend and says that he's confident he can work out with. this comes as north korea says they're essentially putting a deadline, they want to see action, they want to see something from the united states before the end of the year. i think we are nearing a very critical inflection point with the north korea talks and it will be very interesting to see how mike pompeo responds to all this. he has been much more skeptical about north korea's intentions than his boss, the president. >> looking forward to hearing that. jon, thank you very much. always great to talk with you on a sunday morning. i want to remind everyone -- jon has a big show this morning. more from that exclusive interview on the campaign trail
7:16 am
in iowa with senator bernie sanders. plus as discussed he'll go one on one with secretary of state mike pompeo. look for the latest on the u.s.'s response to both north korea and the ongoing crisis in venezuela. it's all coming up on "this week" later this morning right here on abc. eva, over to you. president trump's former lawyer and fixer michael cohen is counting down his last hours as a free man. he's due to report to a federal prison in upstate new york monday morning. where he'll begin serving a three-year sentence for tax evasion, lying to congress and campaign finance crimes. he'll be in the same federal prison as jersey shore's mike "the situation" sorrentino. and the fyre festival founder billy mcfarland. the university of north carolina student at charlotte student who was a hero will be buried with full military honors. witnesses say 22-year-old riley howell knocked the assailant to the ground before being fatally shot.
7:17 am
people lining in the streets waving american flags as the fallen rotc candidate is brought home. the university has said both he and another student who was killed will receive posthumous degrees. >> really an incredible story. we'll switch gears now and move on to something much, much lighter. the suspension over when baby sussex will be born. abc's amy robach is in windsor where she's been for nine months or so. many royal watchers are on tenter hooks this morning. amy, good morning. >> reporter: that's right. it feels like nine months, dan. i'm not going to lie here. yes, we're still waiting in windsor and the media presence is certainly growing. there are quite a few journalists from around the world now, camped out on the corner right below me waiting for any word of baby sussex. so far it's been crickets, guys. the royal couple also waiting about a half a mile down the road behind me at frogmore
