7:01 am
interview. and grizzly encounter. animal expert jack hanna survives a bear attack in glacier national park. he will tell us how he made it out alive "early" this wednesday morning, july 28, 2010. captioning funded by cbs good morning, everybody. i'm harry smith. we are happy to get to wednesday. >> yes, we are. i'm erica hill. good to have you with us this morning. a lot to get to this busy day. a plane crash in pakistan, wildfires in california. we will get you caught up with that this morning. >> we begin with breaking news the the deadly crash of a jet in pakistan. it went down the hills of islamabad. cbs news correspondent mark phillips is in london with the latest. mark, good morning. >> harry, the number of confirmed casualties in this crash keeps rising as bodies are recovered from the wreckage. earlier hopes that there may have been some survivors have
7:02 am
now been sadly dashed. there has been 152 people on the plane. would american passengers were among those onboard the plane as it approached islamabad in terrible weather. this is the monsoon season with high winds, heavy rains, dense low clouds move through the area. and the conditions at the time of the crash have been making rescue efforts more difficult as well. the initial reports, though, there may have been some survivors have since been retracted. crowds had gathered at a local hospital in the hope that relatives may have somehow lived through the crash but that hope soon gave way to grief. the flight was on the busy commuter run between karachi and islamabad, the capital. the plane was an airbus 321, less than ait years owed. operated by air blue. a pakistan commercial carrier that has been in business for six years. pakistan had the spotty
7:03 am
reputation for airline safety but air blue has only had one minor previous incident. the plane had come down in the densely wooded hills just north of islamabad. not the normal approach route to the airport which is south of the city. aviation officials in pakistan are already wondering publicly why the plane was where it was and flying so low at the time. the threat of terror is always there. in this case, all of the thinking seems to be centered around factors like pilot error, equipment problems, and the weather. harry? >> mark phillips in london this morning. thanks so much. we want to get to more breaking news this morning. raging wildfires in southern california. dozens of buildings so far have been destroyed. hundreds more threatened at this hour. thousands of residents have been evacuated. hattie kaufmann is in tehachapi with more. patty, good morning. >> reporter: this fire moved so quickly one evacuee had to drive
7:04 am
through flames just to get away. right now you see just the billow of smoke. it doesn't look too dangerous. wait until this afternoon when the winds pick up. then look out. this fast-moving fire fueled by rapidly changing winds has already destroyed more than 30 homes. and threatening another 150 structures near the small town of tehachapi. george has lived here for 25 years. >> lost everything. including animals. watched my barn burn to ground. may boat. cars, trucks. everything i own. >> reporter: 200 firefighters are battling the blaze along with four aerial tankers. 60 miles due north, 700 firefighters are trying to contain a second fire near the town of kernville. >> grab the dogs and go down the street. i thought i was going to lose my house. >> evacuate! i'm going -- i ain't going nowhere.
7:05 am
>> reporter: governor schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency for kernville. this fire is 0% contained. however, there is good news. no injuries in either of the fires. patty kaufmann, cbs news, tehachapi, california. to the latest on the gulf on this 100-day anniversary of the disaster. it has been about two weeks since the temporary cap was put ottwell. since then not much oil hit the surface. the big question, where did the millions of gallons of crude go? mark strassmann is in new orleans with the latest on that. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. it is a good question. o this milestone day. day 100 of the spill and while the surface spill may be significantly smaller, bp's troubles may be deepening. new reports of a federal investigation including whether regulators were lied to. day 100. the well is capped. approximately 184 million
7:06 am
gallons spilled into the gulf. about 34 million have been recovered and scientists worry the rest is trapped beneath the surface. broken apart by more than 700,000 gallons of disperse ants. bp will set aside $32 billion for the cleanup and pay for it, sell off $30 million in assets. >> planning to sell a lot of assets which will represent perhaps 8% of their exploration and production assets in the united states. >> reporter: it is reported now the environmental protection agency is expected to see penalties under the clean water act. "the washington post" said the investigation will examine whether bp official pass made false statements to regulators or falsified test results concerning the deepwater horizon rig. all this as bp prepares to downsize under new leadership. ceo tony hayward is out. replaced by american bob dudley. he promises a thorough safety review. >> i'm sure there will be
7:07 am
changes. >> reporter: all along bp has said that this cleanup would not cost taxpayer as single dime. now the company says that it intends to take tax write-off for the cleanoff and save itself $10 billion. >> mark strassmann in new orleans morning. thank you very much. also in new orleans for an exclusive interview bp's chief operating officer doug suttles. good morning. >> good morning. >> the cap seems to be holding. it is almost two weeks now. we have not seen any significant am of oil rise to the surface. can you tell us about progress for the relief well and what kind of timetable you are talking about. once and for all, for getting this oil gusher that has spoiled the gulf once and for all. >> yes, harry. as you mentioned earlier, it is encouraging, it has been 13 day since we had any new oil flow into the gulf of mexico. and, of course, we are 100 days into this horrible event.
7:08 am
ultimately we have to make sure this well can never flow again. and the first step along that path is actually the static kill which we hope to actually pump at the beginning of next week. we are make good progress. the tropical storm bonnie set us back a bit. we are back on location and working. ultimately we will need a complete the relief well. still on target to be done before the middle of august. we are still making good progress. >> all right. you will then, in fact, try the static kill with the cap mechanism that's in place now? >> you know, harry, that's the plan. ultimately we have to get that approved by admiral allen. he has given us the go-ahead to do the planning. we are doing that working closely with the government scientists. we hope we get to the point everyone agrees it is the right thing to do, to -- and timeline will be the beginning of next week. >> tens of thousands of lives
7:09 am
affected. to say nothing of the environmental damage that happened to the gulf of mexico. day 100, as you and your co-wokers at bp refleck on this for a moment, what's the most important lesson you have learned? >> well, harry, a lot of thoughts that go through your head on day 100. it is a milestone none of us wanted to ever see. the first thing i think about is the 11 people that lost their lives on the 20th of april, we got so many things to learn from this accident. and actually many, many things will change. what i do know is a few things, harry. our ability, industry's ability to fight a big spill. a well controlled blowout on the bottom of the sea bed, deepwater, significantly different today than it was on the 20th of april. we have invented things, created new techniques to skim and applied techniques that have never been done before. mounted the largest response the world has ever seen. those lessons will be available to the industry to the entire
7:10 am
world. to help with this ever were to happen again. hopefully it will never will. that knowledge will be out there for everyone to use. >> what about the responsibility you and other people in the oil business and oil exploration have? not just to say to people in the gulf but anyplace you are exploring important oil. >> you know, harry, one of the things that's probably had a huge i am partly cloudy on me personally, i have been across the gulf coast for the last 100 days. i met lots of people, fishermen, people that owned restaurants. community leaders, mayors, governors. this has been extraordinarily painful. there's so many things we have to do to make this thing right. and when you feel and touch it has a huge impact on you. we have to make sure the chances of this happen ring extraordinarily remote. i would also tell you if you are in this region, oil and gas activity in the gulf of mexico is hugely important to the people here. it supports a lot of the economy
7:11 am
and the jobs. we have to find a way to do both. we have to find a way to do it safely. jobs in getting oil and gas in the united states are also important. >> doug suttles, we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you, harry. interesting. >> 100 days. almost two weeks no new oil has come up. >> definitely a good headline out of that. a look at the other headlines of the day. betty nguyen is standing by. good morning. the u.s. military today reports another american service member has been killed fighting the taliban in southern afghanistan. and here at home, the leak of afghan war documents spurred heated debate in the house before it passed extra funding for the war. cbs news chief white house correspondent chip reid has the latest. good morning, chip. >> good morning, betty. congress has now approved another $37 billion for the wars in afghanistan and iraq. there was some concern that this massive leak of documents might
7:12 am
threaten that funding. those fears were unfounded. the measure easily passed the house, 308-114. not without passionate debate within the president's own party. fueled by monday's leak of classified documents related to the war in afghanistan. >> if this congress ignores the wikileaks documents that point out a connection between pakistani intelligence and the afghanistan taliban where they are helping the taliban against our troops. >> reporter: president obama made clear there was nothing in the documents that would prompt him to change his strategy. >> these documents don't reveal any issues that haven't already informed our public debate on afghanistan. >> reporter: even if the president's right there isn't much new in the leaked documents they still threaten to turn the public against the war even more. by focusing a spotlight on all that's gone wrong. mounting u.s. casualties, civilian casualties, afghan corruption, claims the pakistan is helping the taliban.
7:13 am
the leaks were allegedly made by former army intelligent specialist bradley manning who reportedly was attempting to prove the u.s. was guilty of war crimes. the military is now reviewing security procedures but experts warn that it shouldn't be an excuse to get overboard. >> they have to be careful because if they classify too much, if they label too much as secret, it actually might give incentive to leakers because they see that so-called secret information is not secret at all and therefore it is okay to give it away. >> reporter: today the president will try to change the topic as he goes to new jersey to talk about the economy. then he goes to new york city and believe it or not, he will take tape an episode of "the view." a first time a sitting president has ever appeared on a daytime talk show. >> looking forward to what he has to say today. chip reid joining us live. thank you, chip. as chip reported, mounting civilian wash calties are a major concern in the afghanistan war. 25 people were killed this morning when a bus hit a roadside bomb planted by
7:14 am
insurgents in southern afghanistan. close to the helmund province. yesterday the utah supreme court reversed the conviction of being an accomplice to rape. it was ruled the jury was given incorrect instructions. jeffs presided over a wedding between a 14-year-old girl and her 19-year-old cousin. fbi director robert mullier is expected face questions this morning about a possible cheating scandal. the justice department is investigating reports that hundreds of fbi agents cheated on a test. the test covered new rules on when agents can conduct surveillance or open new cases. the president of the fbi agent's association says there was pervasive confusion about how the test was supposed to be conducted. we have spectacular video of a truck crash in brazil. a formula truck series race on sunday, one driver went airborne
7:15 am
and smashed into another truck. the high-speed crash ripped the top off of that truck. you about miraculously no one got hurt. here is a look at the weather. we will check in with dave price. less dangerous. >> moral of that story, don't drive your semi at 112 miles per hour. let's get right to it. we will work our story line, we are going to begin in the northeast where another day of hot and humid air being spun up by a high-pressure system will bring humidity and discomfort from places like boston down the i-95 corridor, hard forward, new york, philadelphia, into d.c. and again, not a pleasant day. but there's relief. it is a code front which will push through but that is going to bring the threat of severe weather to places like chicago, st. louis, indianapolis, cleveland. you could see big airport delays in st. louis and american airlines hub. united, chicago. cleveland, of course, which is a continental united hub.
7:16 am
temperatures in the 70s and 80s. cool air behind it and relief. finally, we are just rocked with warm air in the southeast and thermometer is exploding here. it looks like we will get relief to the high pressure system moves down finally by the time we get to friday. that's a quick look at,,,, finally as we look out west, we have some showers in the northern rockies and stretching from the border of canada down to zrern. as we head to the southwest,

7:21 am
emotion on his mother's face and everything that came out. really so much more clear this time than we've seen in the past. just the desperation and the desire for some information on her son. >> and there's some breaking news on that. we'll get to that in a moment. all eyes are on rhinebeck, where we think chelsea clinton's wedding will take place. wikileaks pages reveal where she may have gotten her wedding dress. as "the early show" continues. >> announcer: this portion of "the early show" sponsored by centrum ultrawomen's, the most complete multivitamin just for women. like what you get from centrum ultra women's, the most complete multivitamin for women. it has vitamin d, which emerging science suggests supports breast health, and calcium for bone health. centrum ultra women's. and calcium for bone health. i'm from the gulf coast. my family spends a lot of time here.

7:28 am
congestion especially westbound 237 towards silicon valley. look at that traffic really not moving at all as traffic heads off of 880 towards zanker road. then speeds improve a little bit closer to mountain view. 880 through oakland in those northbound lanes kind of stop and go past the coliseum up into downtown oakland. but you know what, the bay bridge commute has been easy all morning long. the metering lights remain on but not much delay. a car fire is reported in westbound 580 near the castro valley boulevard exit. that's your traffic. here's lawrence with the forecast. >> checking out low clouds around the bay area again, no surprise there. plenty of clouds at ocean beach. no true fog, just low clouds extending onshore into the interior valleys. going to break up in most spots except at the coast. so that will keep it cool at the beaches. 50s and 60s there. temperatures below average but comfortable inland. lots of 70s and 80s interior valleys, 60s and 70s inside the bay.

i love that song. thank you very much. dave price, we have a lot of fine people out on the plaza. welcome back to "the early show" everyone. it is good stuff. we looks over with a rye smile. just ahead, we'll talk to jack hanna. harry will chat with him later. the man has been around animals his whole life, but this probably -- not the ebb appearance he was expecting when hiking in glacier national park in montana with his family recently. a grizzly bear attacks, charges, obviously, he lived to tell the
7:31 am
tale. we are going to hear it. as we get closer and closer to chelsea clinton's wedding, we are unraveling big secrets, like this. we have a photo of chelsea entering a high-end dress shop here in new york. we think that's her. it could be a clue as to who designed her wedding gown. and we'll get to that story in a bit. >> ah, the details, the details. first, to the latest in the ongoing search for kyron horman. for the first time in weeks now, police are speaking about the investigation holding a press conference yesterday where they gave few new details, but they did increase the reward money. priya david clemens is live with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this wall of good wishes continues to grow. and while many hope the little boy will be found, his mother tells "people" magazine she's convinced he's stashed somewhere and they will find him. >> our goals is to expedite the search for kyron, to bring him home as quickly as possible. and to bring justice to any person responsible for his
7:32 am
disappearance. >> reporter: kyron's mother desiree young pleaded for help in finding her son missing two months since june 4th. >> we are still very hopeful. >> reporter: while the county authorities spoke for the first time in three weeks, they gave few new details. >> we believe the kyron's disappearance involves criminal behavior because his parents have been deprived of their son for 53 days. >> reporter: but the lack of new information may not mean the case is stalled. >> they want all the mash marbles, and when they have probable cause for the hods homicide, then they are going to move forward. >> reporter: in fact, police have issued three search warrants to friends of kyron's stepmother, teri horman. one to didi spicer who was brought before a grand jury, but officers have not publicly confirmed teri horman is their focus. >> she's the suspect, she'll be the suspect until she's arrested and she's the defendant.
7:33 am
>> reporter: is there a possibility teri horman was not involved? >> i cannot imagine a scenario where she was not involved. >> reporter: kyron's birth parents continue to doubt teri and are holding on to whatever optimism they have left. >> we love you, kyron. never give up hope. we are all coming to get you to bring you home. >> reporter: in published interviews, kyron's parents say teri acted out of character sending four short e-mails to desiree. and she still has a plan she's executing. also joining us from portland, attorney bruce mccain, a former captain with the sheriff's office. good so are to have you with us this morning. at the press conference yesterday, it was impossible not to notice kyron's mother, disease zee, and her emotional state. i know that struck you as well. what did it tell you? >> well, erica, besides the information that came out, but
7:34 am
what jumped out at me having to watch them is when desiree approached the platform, she was upset in a way i have never seen before. as i listened to the prepared statements from the sheriff's people and desiree's script, what struck me is whenever kyron's name was mentioned yesterday about bringing him home or finding him, never once was it ever mentioned in the context of being alive. and i think that's somewhat significant considering the past statements. given the sheriff's statement last week in writing, they cannot answer they have information to lead them to leave kyron is alive. we may have turned a corner in how the family is pursuing this notwithstanding their hopes. >> would this mean based on your experience the corner being turned is the fact it has been so long now there's less hope of finding him alive, or is there some information that the sheriff's office has that has given to the parents to let them know, in fact, this is likely,
7:35 am
unlikely, rather, their son is alive? >> the sheriff's office doesn't have information to lead them to believe he's alive. i think the public declaration, and they had a chance to clarify that yesterday and chose not to. but seven weeks, no answers, no information, and desiree seemed to react much harsher than we have seen her in her well-composed interviews she has given. >> you mentioned this was noninformation at the press conference. why hold this press conference then? what is it accomplishing? >> it established absolutely nothing. they could have done this on youtube to save the taxpayers money. i cannot emphasize how frustrated the media is with this non-event. especially as they build it to give an update on the investigation and address the unwritten questions and answers. >> there's so much focus on teri horman, who is not named a suspect, but there's information
7:36 am
that an arrest is eminent. >> i would not use the word eminent, i would say inevitable. this is in the hand of the grand jury. that's a slow, deliberate process going over affidavits and hearing testimony from witnesses, most of who are investigators, some witnesses. everyone is looking for an eminent arrest, but as we talked about before, arrests warrant a prosecution. the district attorney overseen in this case is not going to push forward until he's confident he has a package that he can take to trial and secure a conviction or a guilty plea. he's not going to stand on a mere probable cause. he wants more. >> bruce mccain, really appreciate the i sight. thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you, erica. more developments in that story every day. all right. dave price is standing by here on a wednesday. it is a wednesday. >> we made it to wednesday. >> deep, deep in the summer. what's out there? >> well, nothing is changing. take a look at this, guys. we are going to focus on this

to be in and out of your trails before dark. we went on a magnificent hike up some sheer walls and some cliffs on the other side. i had seen the glacier. my wife and i were coming down. some people had taken our picture up there, the last ones. a lady about 18 years old and her parents, they were about a half hour before us, we came down the trail. all of a sudden i came around this corner where there was a cliff and wall, about 8 foot trail. she said oh, my gosh, there's bears coming up the trail, let's get against the wall. i said, no, you have to give the bear space. i said let's back up. we found an opening. went on a grassy hill. i said stand against a wall, clap and make noise like you're supposed to do in bear country. the mother came at her like this. the youngster went over. the other looked at me like this and his hair bristled up. in milliseconds, i thought -- >> how many feet away at this
8:13 am
point, jack? >> this bear is about 25, 30 feet away now, see. i found out later it was a male trying to show off. he started coming at me. you wear this on your chest, your backpack. so i pulled it off real quick. i had it off. throw this down. take the safety clip, go like that. i pointed it at the bear. i didn't want the bear to start squealing and making problems, the mother come back. i didn't want to do this. i went one blast. it goes about 15 feet. bear kept coming. 10 feet. bam, bam again. three blasts. there's only about four in here. went in his face like this and took off. was about 10 feet away. i've been hiking 20 years up there. gary moses, head ranger taught me a lot over the years. believe it or not, harry, i was asked were you nervous. the point was, i don't know what happens to your body, everything takes over. when it was over, then i said everybody was okay and now, you

know, didn't sleep much that night. now i'm getting ready to go back up the same trail saturday because it's a magnificent park to hike in. >> so beautiful up there. how important -- i know you're one of those guys, you're never going to go out on a trail without that bear spray, without that pepper spray. the fact is that you had it there's not a whole other story to tell about somebody getting hurt. >> right. you know, it's just one of those things you carry. police officers might carry, rangers carry for five years and never have to take it out of their holster, never. i've been hiking 25 years. it's unbelievable. i never thought i would have to use it. in the parks now you can have weapons, which that's another story. i'm not for that. you have to know how to use a weapon. that can do more serious damage than anything. so the pepper spray is the only answer. it's just something that does work. it saves the people. it saves the bears and everybody is happy in the end. >> there you go. we've got a happily ever after story from jack hanna out there. man, face-to-face with death.
