7:01 am
of the year. is a recession coming? we're live on wall street with the latest. breaking new developments in the jeffrey epstein case. the new report about his autopsy finding multiple broken bones in epstein's neck the night he died. the i.c.e. protest turning dangerous overnight. a pickup truck driving into a crowd, and what we're now learning about the driver. an abc news exclusive. cameron boyce's parents, libby and victor, speaking publicly for the first time since the disney star's sudden death. >> somewhere between the last text he sent me and the morning, he was gone. their final conversation, and how they're keeping their beloved son's legacy alive. and the massive cliff collapse caught on camera. rocks plunging 200 feet into the water, narrowly missing these kayakers. now what they're saying about this incredible close call.
7:02 am
glad the kayakers are okay. good morning, america on this thankful thursday and we're not just here in times square. no, no, no, no. "gma" also live -- look at that beautiful city. chicago. >> yeah. take a look. there's our "gma" rv on the move driving past that oh so famous skyline, and so many gathered there on north avenue beach to celebrate along with us. we have a big surprise for someone very special coming up. >> i love the music. ♪ >> look at that. >> oh! >> we cannot wait for that. can't wait to check in with chicago, and that surprise you mentioned coming up here. first, we have that breaking news from overnight. that dramatic standoff in philadelphia finally coming to an end after more than seven hours. six police officers shot before the gunman was taken into custody. gio benitez is on the scene in philadelphia this morning with the very latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, david, good morning. yeah, just an incredible, scary situation for both residents and officers. take a look behind me because
7:03 am
if you look closely, you can see all the evidence markers on the ground. that's because more than 100 bullets were fired here. residents jumping fences just to get away from all that gunfire. overnight, a dramatic surrender. a raging gunman turning himself in to police. maurice hill taken into custody bringing a violent, seven-hour tense standoff to an end in philadelphia. >> give me s.w.a.t. asap. long guns, asap. i got officers shot. >> reporter: his surrender comes after gunfire rained down on police for hours. gunshots hitting six officers. bullets ricochetted off the sidewalk and nearby homes. officers crawling and crouching to avoid getting hit. the shootout started while officers were serving hill with a narcotics warrant. >> we have an officers shot, and they're still being shot at. >> reporter: the situation quickly escalating when hill, armed with multiple firearms, barricaded himself inside a home holding two police officers hostage.
7:04 am
>> the guy's still in the stairwell. >> reporter: police rushing their wounded brothers away from the barrage of bullets. one officer hit in the leg, the other in the arm. >> it was like 100 shots. >> reporter: crowds of officers surrounding the home on all sides. cars filling the streets. the nearby university of temple campus on lockdown. >> i heard so many gunshots. >> reporter: several hours after the standoff began, remarkably all of the officers were transported to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. >> it's nothing short of a miracle that we don't have multiple officers killed today. >> reporter: after the hostages were released, the gunman who phoned his attorney, chaka johnson, finally agreeing to speak with negotiators and hours later, surrendering. and we're told this morning that all of those injured officers are going to make a full recovery. again, nonlife-threatening injuries which is just incredible, robin, when you think about how many shots were fired here.
7:05 am
>> oh, my goodness. but we are grateful they are going to recover. all right, gio. thank you. now to those growing recession fears after the dow closed down 800 points last night, suffering its worst day all year. rebecca jarvis is at the new york stock exchange and has the latest for us. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we've already seen some wild swings this morning in stocks. typically stocks are what we talk about. there's another market, the bond market that is trillions of dollars larger. yesterday it sent a dramatic warning signal about the economy. this morning, wall street reeling after the worst day for stocks this year with fears of a possible recession looming. the dow plunging 800 points, down more than 3% wednesday. investors rattled by the escalating trade war with china, negotiations at a standstill and fears of a global slowing economy. and now a new warning sign,
7:06 am
what's known as an inverted yield curve. when the yield -- that's the interest rate -- on the ten-year treasury is lower than the two-year. meaning investors get paid more to own the shorter term two-year investment than they would for taking a longer term risk. the move which happened briefly wednesday typically signals a recession is coming in the next 22 months. the last time it happened was 2007 just before the great recession. >> if it were to stay in this condition for three to six months, then you will see people start to be much more concerned. >> reporter: while the president for now has backed off threats to impose new tariffs on chinese goods, the uncertainty weighing on stocks and u.s. farmers who traditionally sell billions of dollars in crops to china, but china has stopped buying in retaliation. >> a lot of farmers will have to come up with alternative sources of income. >> reporter: and overnight, china said it was willing to
7:07 am
meet the u.s. halfway on trade which sent some optimism through the markets as has a new earning report from walmart which says the health of the consume is strong. think about your 401(k). stocks are up about 13%. which means if you put $1,000 in the market at the beginning of the year today you have about $1,100. amy? >> that's some relief for some people out there who are so concerned. president trump does not appear to be worried about a possible recession, tweeting that the economy is strong and trying to ease fears about that trade war with china. terry moran is at the white house with more on all of that. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, amy. those are president trump's two basic responses to this market anxiety. first, it's okay, and he's blaming the fed. for months he's been hammering fed chairman jerome powell for raising interest rates.
7:08 am
now he's demanding that those rates come down faster and farther. he says if he hadn't been raised, everything would be hunky-dory. he's trying to dial back that trade war with china. this week the president blinked and postponed his latest round of tariffs on china. so the consumers can spend freely during the christmas season, a sign he knows the tariffs can slow down the economy. looming above everything, the 2020 campaign. the president also knows that the worst thing that can happen to him politically is a recession. since the civil war, only one president has won re-election if there was a recession in the last two years of his term. that was william mckinley. that was back in the 1900s. there is history looming over this. david? >> we always appreciate the history. already a major campaign issue. terry, thank you. in the meantime, we turn now to the breaking developments in the jeffrey epstein investigation this morning. in fact, a new report about his apparent suicide detailing what the autopsy found, reports of multiple broken bones in his neck. also the officers who were supposed to be watching him, did they doctor the logs?
7:09 am
linsey davis back with us this morning with the very latest. linsey? >> good morning david. we're learning about his autopsy report. a second epstein-related lawsuit has been filed. this one just filed yesterday by a woman who goes by the initials v.e., and she claims she was sexually assaulted by epstein at 16. she's suing three of epstein's companies claiming they were negligent for allowing and in some cases facilitating her abuse. >> reporter: this morning new details about the final moments of jeffrey epstein's life. "the washington post" reports that epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones. the paper cites two people familiar with the findings of the disgraced millionaire's autopsy. this comes as new concerns are being raised about the prison where jeffrey epstein was found dead. the department of justice revealing that more than half of the prison staff on the night epstein died were working overtime. sources tell abc news that two guards were assigned to monitor
7:10 am
epstein and not only didn't do so, but may have doctored their log entries to cover up the negligent. the guards are on administrative leave pending an investigation. all of this as we hear epstein in his own words. a newly resurfaced interview with epstein recovered nearly two decades ago, years before his conviction. >> i realize what i am. i'm very comfortable in my own skin. >> reporter: in the 2003 interview with david bank, published this week by bloomberg, the millionaire talked about his life on his remote caribbean island, the site of raids by the fbi and nypd earlier this week. >> on my own island, or my own ranch, i can think the thoughts i want to think. >> reporter: and what now for former epstein confidant, ghislaine maxwell? the socialize is named in a new lawsuit filed by jennifer araoz. >> they stole from me. they robbed me of my youth, my identity, my innocence and my self-worth.
7:11 am
>> reporter: araoz claims epstein raped her when she was 15 years old, saying that maxwell and at least three other epstein employees helped facilitate his crimes. >> my resolve to get justice is only strengthened. >> reporter: there are also three unnamed female employees included described as the recruiter, the secretary and the maid. gil ghislaine maxwell has never been charged and vigorously denies the allegations against her. david? >> thank you, linsey. let's bring in dan abrams back with us this morning, and i want to pick up where linsey just left off, this new civil lawsuit that actually names jeffrey epstein's confidant, ghislaine maxwell, and she mentioned the recruiter, the secretary and the maid. we have heard little about maxwell, and don't know where she is. she'll have to respond to this. >> unlike a criminal case, where you can revoke your right, if in a civil case, if you don't want a judgment entered against you, you have to come forward and answer questions.
7:12 am
she may say i invoke my right against self-incrimination. fine. she still has to show up and respond if she doesn't want immediately a judgment entered against her. this is not a really easy case against her either because even the victim here conceding she didn't have interactions with maxwell. >> no direct contact. >> correct. >> there was something quite major happening in the last 24 hours, a new law here in new york state which gives alleged victims more time to come forward, and a bit of a grace period if you will to come forward right now. >> yeah, and it was a law enacted that had nothing to do with epstein. it was a reaction to the catholic church scandal. basically for one year the statute of limitations is on hold. you were abused as a child, you can sue. it focuses more on the age of the victims than it does on the number of years it happened. for example, moving forward until someone is 55, they can sue their abuser in new york. criminal charges can also be
7:13 am
brought for longer periods of time. >> big change there. you heard linsey in that interview with the alleged victim say that she's still going to press ahead with this prosecution. but there's a lot of frustration with the guards who were not watching epstein. what for them if they have, in fact, doctored the logs? >> if they falsified records, that can be federal charges. we have seen it before. corrections officers have been charged for that very crime, falsifying records. >> all right, we'll be tracking it. dan, thanks very much. robin? now to another round of wicked weather overnight. damage and flooding in the plains and southeast. rob is in chicago and tracking it all for us. good morning, rob. >> hey, good morning, robin. it was a bit rough here in the midwest as far as heavy winds where they had heavy rains. that was across parts of the southeast yesterday. in south carolina, summerville, look at this. five inches of rain falling just north of charleston, and a child care facility had to be evacuated. some of those kids frightened as you can imagine. orlando getting about four inches of rainfall yesterday as well, and flooding the streets.
7:14 am
they can see similar action. a rough week for much of the southeast, and 60-mile-per-hour winds in tuscaloosa, and indiana. 70-mile-per-hour winds in chicago. severe weather threat spreads to the east. rapid city, sue falls, lincoln. large hail and a few tornadoes, and the potential for more heat across california. talk more about that in a little bit. >> thanks, rob, so much. we turn to the dangerous scene at the i.c.e. protest in rhode island overnight. a driver running into demonstrators, multiple injuries. janai norman is here with that. janai, good morning. >> david, good morning. demonstrators were protesting the treatment of migrants outside the detention center. dozens were linking arms when a driver drove his truck right into them. >> reporter: this protest appearing to be peaceful, but quickly turning into a scary
7:15 am
crash after a driver plowed his pick-up truck into this crowd of demonstrators. in this shocking video outside the wyatt detention center in rhode island, you can see the truck driven by an alleged corrections officer approach the entrance to the detention center parking lot. >> we're a bunch of peaceful protesters sitting on the ground blocking this parking lot when a correctional officer in this suv comes barrelling through. >> reporter: before attempting to drive straight through the crowd of jewish protesters, many advocating for the human rights of migrants detained by i.c.e. [ chanting "shut it down" ] >> reporter: five protesters suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. reports say immediately following the truck going into the crowd officers came out and surrounded the truck in hopes of moving the protesters. >> everyone, back up. >> reporter: watch when the crowd of roughly 600 demonstrators doesn't disperse. the officers used pepper spray. and while officers used pepper spray, protesters say those
7:16 am
officers did nothing to address the driver. when reached by abc news, the detention center offered no comment this morning. >> alarming pictures overnight. >> absolutely. >> all right, janai, thanks. now to the water crisis in new jersey's largest city. there are increased calls this morning for the mayor of newark to step down. as the city struggles to get even bottled water to its residents. whit johnson is in newark with the latest. good morning, whit. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. outrage and frustration here in newark, sparked by growing fears of lead contamination. tens of thousands of residents told not to drink water from the tap. many lining up to pick up cases of bottled water. many wondering if newark may be the new flint, michigan where residents are exposed to dangerous lead levels in their water. now in newark there are growing calls for the city's mayor to step down. the crisis has been brewing for nearly three years now, coming
7:17 am
the a led last week when the epa found elevated levels of lead in two homes that were using special filters intended to clean the water, blaming a corrosion control issue at one of the city's water treatment plants, but adding insults to injury, officials had to temporarily stop giving out bottles of water yesterday after many of them were found to be past their best buy dates. officials will be out here at this rec center and other locations across the city handing out bottled water once again. robin? >> this time water that's not past its due date. think about the folks in flint, michigan who have been going through this for many years. >> and still. >> still going on. >> hope they get answers soon. we want to take a look at a very close call for kayakers in michigan. they were touring the pictured rocks national lake shore. look at that. a huge section of a 200-foot cliff collapsed into lake superior. missing them by just about
7:18 am
50 feet. thankfully and remarkably no one was injured. the tour guide speaking out about those intense moments in the water. take a listen. >> two minutes prior, we were under that spot where all the rocks fell which is absolutely crazy in my mind. all of a sudden, the cliff just started to crack and section by section, these rocks of sandstone just fell into the water. >> wow. >> you see it's remarkable that that was stunningly captured. there was a nature photography boat and they set their drone when they heard the sound of the rocks falling. they captured it all. >> we're following a lot of other stories this morning as well, including that abc news exclusive with robin. her interview with the parents of the disney star, cameron boyce. how they're going to keep his legacy alive. they are a really, really special family. i can't wait to share that with you. let's go to rob in chicago. >> time for your sunny cities sponsored by expedia.com.

7:32 am
son, their beloved son's death last month, talking about the last time they saw him, some of their special memories and how they will keep his legacy alive. >> the night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before. we were texting that night. we were texting about the lakers. we were texting back and forth up until 12:30, and somewhere between the last text he sent me in the morning, he was gone. it's not cliche to say you never know. >> you never know. >> you never know. it's not cliche to say. you know, i used to -- you know, when it's somebody else, you know, you always feel bad. but until you really -- it hits you, god, you just -- you just can't understand it. >> reporter: just hours after these photos of a smiling cameron boyce were taken by his father, the 20-year-old was found unresponsive at his los angeles home. passing away suddenly last month in his sleep due to a seizure
7:33 am
which was a result of epilepsy, a neurological disorder that affects nearly 3.5 million americans. >> cameron had his first seizure at 16 1/2, and until he had his second one, he wasn't considered as having epilepsy, and that's when he was 17, going on 18. he only ever had five seizures and the fifth one is the one that he died from. >> was he receiving treatment? >> yes. >> well, he was on medication for one, but we also had this thing where they wired his head up and had this contraption on that tried to capture brain activity. nothing ever showed. they tried to induce him to seize with strobe and different methods. never seized. he only had seizures while he slept. he never had one when he was awake. every time he had a seizure he would bite his tongue or bite his lip. he wouldn't have any memory of the seizure. >> and obviously if i ever
7:34 am
thought that he could die from a seizure, i would have never let him out of my sight which would have been awful for him. and so we thought because he hadn't had one for 13 months before the last one. >> reporter: for nearly a decade, cameron was a fixture on family tv screens all across the globe. at just 12 years old, he landed his breakout role on disney channel's hit show, "jessie." >> that seems kind of crazy, doesn't it? >> reporter: going on to star in the wildly popular "descendents" franchise show casing his many talents as an actor -- >> that wasn't the right time, right? >> reporter: -- and a dancer. ♪ >> what kind of child was he growing up? what kind of kid was cameron? >> he was amazing, always extremely wise, extremely thoughtful, incredibly athletic, a dancer from the minute he was born and just the kindest, sweetest human you could possibly meet, ever. he used to say to me, share your wisdom, mom. share your wisdom with me.
7:35 am
>> who says that? >> who says that as a kid? and i would. >> reporter: often described as an old soul, cameron believed deeply in helping others, combining acting with activism. his family carrying on the work he began with the cameron boyce foundation. >> the cameron boyce foundation will do a lot of things for epilepsy, for gun violence, the water crisis. those were the areas he was really, really focused on. >> what you leave should be bigger than you. >> you know, i can never fill my son's shoes, ever even though my foot is bigger than his. but we're going to try to continue his legacy as best we can because it's just too important to let it die. >> usually a son says that about his father. >> exactly. everything is just backwards. everything is just reversed, and that's why it's so strange to me. like, i'm not supposed to outlive my son. i'm not supposed to be undoing his estate.
7:36 am
i'm getting, you know, letters to the estate of cameron boyce which is just -- every time i read it or see it or something, it's just wow. it boggles my mind. >> in your quiet moments and you think of your son, what's the first thing that comes to mind? >> a month or so ago, he came to visit and i was so happy to see him. gave him a big hug, and it was cool, this is my 20-year-old son that drove up in his car from his house and he's coming to visit me. i'm thinking, this is how it's going to be. this is going to be cool. so that's my -- that's my favorite memory right now because it was the last time i saw him, like, being an adult and doing his thing. >> hey, guys. it's cameron boyce here. "the descendants" premiere right now. >> do you have a favorite performance from him? >> not a performance, but when he lived in new york for four months and it was snowing out. he was just dancing through it and he did a pirouette that was perfect and it left a mark in the snow, and i love that. it's him.
7:37 am
it's the sunlight in shoes that he is. >> but he said crazy stuff too. >> go ahead. >> the last night we were with him at dinner, he said to me -- we asked him about his house. he had just bought a house. and we said, well, how's the house? this is the night that another aftershock of the earthquake happened, and we were at the restaurant and we were rocking at the restaurant on the patio. we just had an aftershock and she asked him, how was the house. he said, my house is the epicenter of everything that's cool. i don't want to make it see like he was all professor like all the time. that was cool. the epicenter of everything that's cool. >> just a smile. >> all smiles. >> they are so proud of their son, and rightfully so. they established the cameron boyce foundation in his honor. it's launching its first program tomorrow, friday. it's called wielding peace to help fight gun violence. so this is something cameron actually created and he had been
7:38 am
working on this project prior to his passing, and he really looked forward to sharing it. the foundation will also bring awareness to epilepsy. and i saw your reaction when the mother said that it was 17 when libby said his first seizure, and you're not diagnosed with epilepsy until you have a second one. >> right. >> and the fact he was taking his medication as of late, and that she felt assured, first of all, they wanted to emphasize it's very rare how he died because of this. it's extremely rare, but she thought, well, since it happened in his sleep, he won't hit his head, and he might be safer. >> all the normal fears of having an epileptic seizure during the day when you're walking around. >> she said, she would have kept him right by her side, which would not have been fun for him. >> oh, no. >> i have to say cameron is not only an inspiration, but his parents are. in watching this, they are truly, and your interview with them, they should be commended
7:39 am
for what they are doing for their son. >> it was difficult for them, you know, it's been just roughly a month since his passing, and he has a teenage sister who if you go on instagram and read what she wrote after the passing -- and i asked the parents, what's your secret sauce? both of their children are so remarkable in thinking about others, and you can see more of the interview tonight on "nightline," and you can understand the legacy he's continuing because of his grandmother, what she did in the civil rights movement. so you have a better understanding of that. but what you leave should be bigger than you. what you leave should be bigger than you. that was true. >> that was wisdom by him at a very early age. a lot more ahead this morning. that was amazing, robin. >> thank you. coming up on "gma," the urgent investigation. teens now hospitalized sick after vaping. they're now talking about lung disease in young people. what doctors are now learning. come on back. what doctors are now learning. come on back.

young adults landing in the hospital with breathing problems, some even having seve severe lung damage. >> something that is assumed by the public and certainly by teens to be relatively safe, actually has been associated now with at least this type of acute, very aggressive injury to otherwise healthy lungs. >> reporter: minnesota is the latest of several states who report patients with severe lung damage with four cases after six were reported in illinois and up to 12 in wisconsin. >> we recognize that it is not a result of infection like viruses or bacteria. it looks more similar to injury from an inhalation of some kind of a caustic substance. the body is actually reacting to something that's been exposed to or deposited along the lining of the lung. >> reporter: earlier this month, this teen's post went viral after posting pictures of his own damaged lungs. >> i woke up in a lot of pain. i couldn't sleep on my right side.
7:45 am
>> reporter: chance amaretta was rushed to the hospital and underwent several tests. chance says the doctors treating him said he had a lung condition made worse by vaping. >> it felt like i was having a heart attack, and it was just insanely scary because, like, i'm 18. >> reporter: health officials warning there are still a lot of unknowns. >> when it comes to teens and vaping, i think it is safe to say that we really do not understand the potential impact on their lungs of using these devices or the substances that they may be putting in these devices. >> and that's the big concern right there. they don't know the possible acute nor the long-term effects of vaping. there is just not enough history there and a reminder the cdc says it is unsafe for teens, kids and young adults because their brains are still developing and yet the cdc found that 1 in 5 high schoolers are vaping using e-cigarettes and 1 in 20 middle schoolers.

we're back now with those new reflations from patrick swayze's widow. it's been ten years since the star's death, and now she's opening up about his regullegac some painful childhood secrets. it's all part of a new documentary, and janai norman is back with more. good morning, janai. >> reporter: it's hard to believe it has been a decade, but that new documentary is giving us an intimate look into patrick swayze's life, and the struggles he battled throughout, including an abusive relationship with his mother. at just 57 years old, the beloved star lost his 22-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

8:42 am
like his mom did, it could make some people cave,. the abuse stopped when patrick turned 18. his father threatening patsy with divorce if she touched him again. she never hit him after that, lisa said. >> we're only on this planet for so long. >> reporter: patsy and patrick remaining close throughout his life saying she was a complicated woman and intense and amazing life force. patrick absolutely loved and respected her. and patrick's mother died four years after him in 2013. that new documentary premieres august 18th, honoring what would have been swayze's 67th birthday. ladies? >> all right, thank you, janai. >> thank you, janai. we switch gears now to your money, and what to do right now as those fears grow of a coming recession. rebecca jarvis joins us from the new york stock exchange. what does this potential mean for consumers out there? >> reporter: so amy, on the one hand it means there could be nerve-racking days ahead, and you look at that 401 k, and think about it in the longer term. over time, historically that goes up. the market goes up over time. there could also be higher
8:43 am
prices ahead, and we have talked about this because of tariffs and things like laptops, cell phones, those types of things, could see prices rise. there is one area where consumers actually benefit in some ways from this. it is because interest rates are going lower. that means the cost of borrowing gets cheaper. it is always a good time to be paying off those debts, amy. >> let me ask you this. what should people be doing right now, rebecca? >> reporter: they should be doing exactly, robin, what they should always be doing. contributing to a 401k, socking away extra cash on the side so you have a cushion of six months to a year. if that's possible. now i get it. it's not always easy to do that, and it's not always easy to look at headlines like the ones today and say, stay the course, but historically speaking, staying the course is what works for people over the long-term.
8:44 am
recessions, they are not a matter of if, but when. they will happen, and so socking away that cash for days ahead is always the right move, robin. >> such good advice. >> think of the long game, right? >> big picture. >> rebecca, thank you. we'll head back to chicago now and check in with rob. >> what's happening, guys? we are on lake michigan right now. you see our drone shot. i'm with tracy butler, the long-time meteorologist here at wls. >> hey, rob. >> we both know there is an advisory for small crafts, which means you shouldn't be out in a small craft. we have life jackets and a lot of people don't know that lake michigan gets like an ocean, doesn't it? >> it really can. we have elevated levels as it is right now, and, in fact, our local national weather service office has an alert in effect today. dangerous swimming conditions as you can see. >> luckily the water is warm, about 70 degrees. very pleasant on any other day. looks like it's going to be a good day.
