studying surveillance video of the chaotic incident. in a moment of horror, the driver of this car barreled through a busy las vegas sidewalk. witnesses say she had a toddler with her. >> people were bouncing off the car. she rode the sidewalk. >> people were punching the window trying to get the child out of the backseat. she accelerated again and kept mowing people down. >> reporter: emergency responders set up a triage center to attend to nearly 40 vehicles. the normally bustling vegas strip was partly shut down. one person is dead and at least six more are in stable condition. >> she was up off the street onto the sidewalk, two or possibly three times. and based on the evidence and information from our fatal investigators, at this point we are treating this as an intentional act. >> reporter: police say the violent rampage started near the planet hollywood resort. the suspect drove on and off the sidewalk reaching the paris hotel and casino. >> it literally was like she was not trying to stop the car.
she was just sitting there just looking straightforward, not even moving. >> reporter: the suspect attempted to drive away but was tracked down in a parking lot. >> yeah, she did drive off. we were able to get her detained. and she's being interviewed as well as being tested for impairment. >> reporter: police say the driver and the 3-year-old in the car were unharmed. among those who were injured in this incident were four university students from pacific university in oregon, wrestlers here for a competition. witnesses say the car was going anywhere between 30 and 40 miles an hour as it struck people, mowed them down on the sidewalk here on the strip. >> so frightening and sad. john, thank you. a suicide bomber attacked a joint nato and afghan patrol this morning north of kabul. officials say an explosion killed six nato soldiers near bagram airfield. three international troops were also wounded. the taliban claimed responsibility. u.s. officials have not said if

less apologetic to the democratic national committee for responding to the data breach but temporarily cutting off access to his voter files. >> look, a staff member or more of my team acted inappropriately and we'll deal with that. but to shut off access to my campaign's information, what word would you use, sabotage? >> reporter: clinton's campaign says they are waiting for the independent investigation to determine if campaign secrets were stolen. >> i don't think we should discount what happened here. they did go in, they took data, they tried to save it. >> we should move on because i don't think the american people are all that interested in this. i think they are more interested in -- >> reporter: but the dispute was a blip on the abc stage saturday night when clinton, sanders and martin o'malley mostly sparred on national security -- >> i worry too much that secretary clinton is too much into regime change and a little
bit too aggressive. >> with all due respect, you voted for regime change with respect to libya. >> reporter: to the economy. >> should corporate america love hillary clinton? >> everybody should. >> they ain't going to like me. and wall street is going to like me even less. >> reporter: they came together around a common foe, donald trump. >> he is becoming isis' best recruiter. they are going to people showing videos of donald trump insulting islam and muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists. >> reporter: on sunday the gop frontrunner said those claims are unsubstantiated. >> it is just another hillary lies. she lies like crazy about everything. >> reporter: trump continued his criticism of clinton on social media slamming her on twitter sunday for briefly disappearing after a commercial break saying it was really strange when hillary was missing from the podium last night. not very presidential. well, anthony, the explanation a clinton campaign official told
us unlike the men's room, the lady's room was a two-minute walk each way and the break was only five minutes. >> julianna goldman, thank you. and senator bernie sanders will be with us in our next hour. we'll look at what is next in the data breach controversy plus his struggle to close the gap beyond new hampshire. that's ahead. and now we have breaking news in the republican race. south carolina senator lindsey graham just announced in an online video he's suspending his campaign. he was around 1% in many polls. our battleground tracker shows donald trump has a new rival in new hampshire. support for governor chris christie has jumped to 11% in our latest poll. major garrett spoke to chris christie and he's with the bus in nashua, new hampshire. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. after interviewing chris christie on this campaign bus, he told a town hall in peterborough it's no longer showtime, it's gametime. and the nation is depending on new hampshire to pick a future president. christie loves to tell voters
here he has the strength to do that job. we asked the governor if he was aggravated that donald trump appears to have cornered the strength market. >> i don't think he's cornered that market. i think he's the loudest person in that market. see, i'm running for president, major. i'm not running to be the most popular guy in the senior class. >> reporter: against donald? >> well, he'll be as serious of a candidate as he wants to be. and what comes out of your mouth matters. >> reporter: out of trump's mouth saturday was a call for russia's vladimir putin. despite repression at home in ukraine and syria. >> i believe i'll get along fine with putin. >> reporter: trump even questioned whether putin's government was come poliplicit journalist deaths. they put russia tenth on the list of nations to kill those with impunity. 90% of murders there result in
no convictions. putin's comments drew the wrath of jeb bush. >> you don't brag about what guy he is, he's a dictator, he's a bully. >> reporter: while trump welcomed putin's praise, marco rubio told "face the nation" he would never accept putin's endorsement. >> no, i don't. vladimir putin is a political actor. he's not someone who is going to go down in history as a great leader. >> reporter: christie told us that in general he's avoided reacting incessantly to everything that trump says because, as the governor told us, if trump is talking about trump, if he's talking about trump, then everybody's talking about trump. christie knows to win here he has to capture as many votes as possible and along the way talk trump's numbers down. >> major, thank you. overnight one of the most powerful men in sports was banned from the game of soccer. sepp blatter, long-time
president of the world organization was found guilty of the ethic violence. so was the official once expected to replace him. now they are both sidelined for eight years. mark phillips is in london with the latest move and a wide ranging corruption scandal. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, this was the judgment by the ethics committee in world soccer. it's not a criminal conviction for corruption, not yet. but the result is effectively the same. sepp blatter, governing president of fifa for 17 years and the power for 40. he's been found guilty of breach of loyalty. the bandage on his face could be connected to a recent health scare. the issue, a $2 million payment to this man, head of european soccer. the two men say the money was a delayed payment for work. the ethics committee saw it differently. platini was also banned and
fined. blatter who says he'll appeal was typically defiant. >> i'm sorry that -- >> reporter: but not sorry for what he'd done. more sorry for himself and the team sport. >> i'm sorry that i am as president of fifa this punching ball. and i'm sorry for football. >> reporter: things could get worse for sepp blatter and many others following the fbi triggered arrest of the number of fifa officials in switzerland last may and the criminal investigations launched by swiss authorities as well. sepp blatter was forced to promise to resign and called for new elections in february. with each term in this saga, the beautiful game becomes uglier. >> mark phillips, thank you. thousands of people across the u.s. remember a 15-year-old from tennessee who did something extraordinary. he died trying to shield three girls from a shooting.
zaevion dobson is his name. >> reporter: on this football field, zaevion dobson had star potential. the week before he was killed. he went to a stop the violence rally with his mother. this morning people around the country are now celebrating her son as a hero. >> it's a part of me that wants to be angry but i just can't. >> reporter: because you're so proud of what he did. >> yes. >> reporter: president obama tweeted zaevion dobson died or saving three friends. another tweeted, to say this young man is a hero is an understatement. mrs. dobson, you raised an intelligent angel, god bless. how does that make you feel? >> it made me feel like, wow,
you did -- you're doing your job as a mother. >> reporter: knoxville police say zaevion was playing video games with friends when stheped out to talk to a group of girls and got caught in the middle of gang gunfire. >> he jumped on top of three girls to shield them -- sorry. to shield them from the shooters. >> reporter: do you wonder why my child? >> yes. >> reporter: what do you say to those gang members who fired those shots? >> stop the violence. stop it. he asked me one time, what am i going to do? what's in it for me? i said, zaevion, your time coming. when his time came, the trump is sounding. the angels came down and they took my baby to heaven. i know they did. and zaevion, he's looking down
smiling because he made an impact on the whole world. >> reporter: there were five gang members who shot at zaevion according to police. one was shot and killed by another gang member, police believe. another is in jail this morning. and authorities are looking for three others. zaevion dobson will be buried the day after christmas. >> just devastating, david. thank you. french prosecutors announced this morning that a passenger is under arrest after a fake bomb forced an airfrance flight to make an emergency landing. the passenger reported finding a suspicious device in the bathroom sunday during the flight from paris to a resort island in the indian ocean. the pilot diverted to kenya. 473 passengers and crews safely evacuated down emergency slides. it's the fourth hoax in recent weeks against airfrance. comedian steve harvey is apologizing for a bizarre mix-up at last night's "miss universe pageant." he crowned miss colombia the winner but that was a mistake.
moments later her tiara was awkwardly removed. miss philippines was actually the winner. man, oh, man. >> reporter: good morning, vinita. it's not the biggest mistake in the history of the universe, but probably the biggest flub in the history of miss universe. you don't often see the backstage craziness that i experience. imagine this, seconds ticking down on the end of the live broadcast and everyone is frantically trying to figure out how to tell the announced winner that she is actually first runner-up. >> miss universe 2015 is -- colombia! >> reporter: for about two-and-a-half minutes ariadna arevalo was miss universe until steve harvey returned and said this -- >> i have to apologize.
the first runner-up is colombia. miss universe 2015 is >> reporter: the actual winner, pia alonzo wurtzbach appeared stun. for more than a minute those on stage seemed at a loss of what to do. steve harvey quickly admitted his error. >> i will take responsibility for this. it was my mistake. it was on the card. >> reporter: unfortunately, it was not harvey's only mistake of the night. he tweeted, i want to apologize emphatically to miss philippines and miss colombia. he misspelled philippines and colombia. the tweet was quickly deleted and corrected. what could be seen as the final indignity? the crown was taken from miss colombia and barely made it to miss philippines before the broadcast cut to the final credit. the twitter universe posted the
pack stage video with the new winner and runner-up. >> it was very -- nontraditional crowning moment, isn't it? >> yeah. very -- very 2015. >> reporter: the miss universe organization issued a statement. unfortunately, a live telecast means that human error can come into play. our sincerest apologies to miss colombia, miss philippines, their families and fans. just wow. i was a preliminary judge for this year's pageant as well so i did get to see the inner workings of everything. i also got to see just how seriously these ladies take this contest. and i tell you what, last night it was craziness inside the arena as well. the crowd was booing, people wouldn't leave despite repeated apologies from the p.a. system. and asking everyone to leave. they just didn't want to see the end of this. anthony? >> michelle, thanks. at least miss colombia can say she was miss universe for two-and-a-half minutes. new technology helps an olympic athlete avoid tragedy.

seth blatter was promised to resign. the endless saga about the beautiful game becomes ugly. everyone is frantically trying to figure out how to tell the announced winner she is actually first runner up. >> it was my mistake, houbl mistake. the cutting edge air bag technology kicked into gear when needed most. >> show up to work, pull out your phone, you come out at the end of the day, your tank is filled up, windows are washed and you drive straight home. trump slammed clinton on sunday for disappearing after a commercial break. >> sorry. >> i'm anthony mason with vinita meyer and christine john sochblt charlie and gayle are off. norah is on assignment. investigators are trying to determine why a woman plowed
through a crowd on a las vegas sidewalk. police say it appeared to be intentional intentional. the campaign's data director was fired last week, a glitch in the party's voter database allowed them to read hillary clinton's private campaign data. sanders apologized to clinton at saturday's democratic debate, but the candidates did focus mainly on gun control. donald trump and isis. >> number one, our goal is to
crush and destroy isis. >> we heard from the senator this week we must put aside the issue of how quickly we get rid of assad and come together with countries including russia and iran first. is he wrong. >> i think we're missing the point. we're doing both at the same time. >> we shouldn't be the ones declaring that assad must go. where did it ever say in the constitution, where is it written it's the job of the united states of america or its secretary of state to determine when dictators have to go. >> if the united states does not lead, there is not another leader. there is a vacuum. >> isil training videos are telling lone wolves to buy a combat assault weapon in america is to buy f gun show. it's because of the flip-flopping in washington that both my colleagues have represented for the last 40 years. >> do not tell me that i have not shown courage in standing up to the gun people. trump comes along and says i know the answers. the answer is that all of the
mexicans, they're criminals and rapists, we've got to hate the mexicans, those of your enemies. we hate all the muslims because all the muslims are terrorists. i believe we stand together to address the real issues facing this country, not allow them to divide us by race or where we come from. >> donald trump is sending a message to muslims here in the united states and literally around the world that there is a clash of civilizations. >> there was a breach because the dnc vendor screwed up. information came to our campaign. in this case our staff did the wrong thing. >> does secretary clinton deserve an apology tonight? >> yes, i apologize. >> senator bernie sanders is with us from burlington, vermont. good morning. >> good morning. >> your campaign fired your national data director and you've suspended two others. your ear conducting an investigation. can you tell us the status of that now and are more suspensions possible here?
>> well, as you know, this is the second breach that the dnc vendors have allowed to happen. what we are asking for now is a thorough investigation with the dnc from day one of these campaigns, to see what the implications of these breaches have been. have information been able to go both ways? i don't know if that's the case, but that's a possibility. the bottom line is that the first time there was a breach when we had access to clinton's information, our people said this is wrong, this is crazy and they went to the dnc. second time we had at least one staffer who did not co-the right thing. that person is gone. we have suspended several others. we certainly want to get to the bottom of this and we are working with the dnc to make sure we have all the information, and we do not want these breaches from dnc vendors to take place. again, but i believe that the action of the dnc to basically shut us off from all of the
information that we have put into that base, was totally inappropriate. that's an issue we continue to deal with them on. >> i want to ask you about donald trump asking for a new apology this morning. it's donald trump basically seeing a reference to him being a recruitment tool for isis should have never been a topic of conversation during this debate. >> well, let me say this about donald trump and what i said the other day. i fear that donald trump is doing a great disservice to our country internationally, fanning hatred for the united states all over the world. i have to say this, and if you know me, i'm not the most partisan guy in the world and i don't like taking harsh attacks against my opponents. i think donald trump is a pathological liar. when he goes before the american people and says he saw on a television screen thousands of people in new jersey standing up
and being so happy and celebrating 9/11 and the destruction of the twin towers, it never happened. >> do you any in response to donald trump hillary clinton should be apologizing? >> i'll let hillary clinton deal with that. i think donald trump needs to apologize to the mayor scan people. either thousands of people in new jersey were standing up and celebrating or they weren't. there isn't any indication that took place, any indication he saw that on television. he goes around the country talking about it. that is doing a mass disservice to the muslim people of this country and our relationship with the muslim people all over the world. >> senator, the cbs battleground tracker polls show you ahead in new jersey. but trailing behind in some of the other states. we only have a few more weeks now until the iowa caucuses. what is your campaign going to do to set things up and make a
difference in the poll numbers? >> well, look, if you remember that when i started this campaign 7 1/2 months ago, we were considered a fringe campaign, fringe candidate. i was at 3% or 4% in the polls. nobody knew who bernie sanders was. talking about why the middle class is disappearing, massive income inequality, corrupt campaign finance system that allows billionaires to buy electios. our campaign has caught on. the latest polls have us up in new jersey and not so far behind in iowa. we have a very strong grassroots movement in iowa and in new hampshire of volunteers and paid staff. we're knocking on a lot of doors, making a lot of telephone calls. i'll tell you, i think we have a shot to win and i'd going to be leaving for iowa in a few hours. we'll be spending a lot of time in iowa and new hampshire in the next five or six weeks. we are speaking to many, many thousands of people, a lot of
excitement. if we can win in iowa, if we can win in new hampshire, i think we're on our way to a national victory and one of the great political upsets in the modern history of america. look, people want a political revolution. people are tired of establishment politics, establishment economics. >> senator sanders joining us this morning live. thank you so much. governor chris christie's campaign depends on voters in one state. major garrett is riding with the candidate this morning. >> chris christie has spent a lot of time on the roads of new hampshire, now he says it's finally paying off. the governor talks to us about his recent rise in the polls and what he's learned about running for president, coming up on "cbs this morning.",,

retardants and said it does its own testing at independent, accredited laboratories. we asked if any of orbit's own testing found concerning chemicals. orbit had no comment. but orbit is not alone. the ecology center found 75% of all the car seats tested contain potentially harmful flame retardants. however orbit is the only company that claimed otherwise. along with the american academy of pediatrics and the international association of firefighters, bloom is lobbying federal regulators to pan fire retardant chemicals from children's products and many want them out of car seats as well. >> flame retardants only protect against very small flames and the flame retardant underneath a child is not going to make a difference. >> minimizing the time your kids spending in one and never let your baby stay in the car seat outside the car. >> very useful information.

part of the conversations your neighbors are having to create a stronger and safer community for everyone. >> you're not talking about setting up a network people can post more selfies. you're looking if you need to get rid of a couch, there are safety concerns in the neighborhood, those kinds of things? >> we are a social network but a social network about solving proble problems. it's about coming together with your neighbors to solve problems like finding a babysitter maybe more personal things like finding a lost dog or critical things like coming together in times of crime or natural disaster. >> how do you make sure the people using this are legitimate? >> well, nextdoor is a private social network and privacy to us means two things. the first thing you have to verify your address to join the service. so that when you go and talk with your neighbors you know they are your actual neighbors. the second thing about nextdoor is all of the conversations are private. you won't find them with a google search or shared on other social networks. we try to make it safe to share the sorts of things online you
would feel safe sharing i don't have line. >> i think something interesting in this app you suggest go next door and borrow a cup of sugar or something. what do you say to people this will allow people to isolate themselves even more? >> when we started the company, almost 30% of americans didn't know a single neighbor by name. part of the culprit was technology. technology in our busy lives. now technology can play a role in bringing back that sense of community and next door is an ice-breaker. not a replacement for the conversations that you have with your neighbors. it just makes it easy for those to happen. >> you actually are having partnerships with police departments in some communities. how does that work? >> one of the key cases for nextdoor is for neighbors to get together and create a virtual neighborhood watch to keep the neighborhood safer. one particip discussions needs to be the local police department. we have partnered with almost 1500 police departments across the country to create a great dialogue between neighbors and police to keep communities safer. >> how about neighborhoods behaving badly?
can you potentially get banned from the site and do you watch out for that kind of stuff? >> on nextdoor you have to use your real name and verify your address so the incentive to behaving badly is very, very low. at the same time, nextdoor is about solving problems so not about social things like gossip or getting to know your neighbors. it's about tapping into the power of the neighborhood. >> as with so many of these start-ups there is often criticism and one of the biggest criticisms for you guys there could be some component of racial profiling. you've been very avctive. u.s. we consider profiling to be unacceptable. how do you police that behavior? >> it's not up to us to police it but up to the neighbors. we made it clear that racial profiling is completely unacceptable on nextdoor. it hardly even happens but one occurrence is too many. we will do everything we can to remind our members that the constructive dialogue on nextdoor should stay civil and neighborly. >> how do you make money? >> we don't. we have been focused on creating the best member experience. we move forward to creating a
business model we i think a tremendous opportunity to connect neighbors and local businesses. >> you talk about you don't want these gossip sites. how do you prevent that? you're relying essentially on the community to police this system themselves. >> yeah. they don't really have to police the system. because the whole system is built to solve problems. it's about finding a babysitter, about getting rid of a used couch. it's about coming together if there are floods or fires. so the content itself doesn't really lend itself to gossip or people being nasty. the content lends itself to people coming together and helping each other to creating stronger and more tight-knit communities. >> we have heard a lot of about packages being stolen from porches around this time of the season especially. how does nextdoor help that? >> if your package has been stolen you can ask your hbors if they have seen anything. if you know you're not going to be home when the package is being delivered you can ask a trusty neighbor to take possession of that package instead of you. >> it's a smart idea. it's nice. you should know your neighbors.
