7:03 am
>> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off so bianna golodryga is here. big news, while you were sleeping in the west, a dramatic rescue operation unfolded in thailand where a youth soccer team had been trapped in a cave for more than two weeks. thai navy s.e.a.l.s confirm that rescuers pulled the last of 12 boys and their soccer coach out of that flooded cave this morning. it truly is a miracle. we're told all of them are safe and that is great news. >> wonderful news. the third phase of this rescue mission started hours ago with the head of the rescue operation vowing to get everyone else out being treated at a local hospital.
7:04 am
public health officials say they're in high spirits and doing well. anna werner is live near the cave following the rescue effort. >> reporter: it has been an amazing job performed by these teams, these many rescuers who have come to the site. this third and final day of rescue as it turned out, the divers, 19 divers, were going in to rescue the four boys and their coach who remains in the cave. also with them, three thai navy s.e.a.l.s and a doctor. rescue crews worked furiously to keep the water out of the cave by any means necessary, including plugging sinkholes on the mountain that let water in. >> water management is the key to this whole thing. >> reporter: thanet natisri helped lead the effort to remove water from the cave. he told us he faced a critical deadline to get everyone out before heavy rain in the forecast thursday. what do you think people don't understand about the attempt to manage the water?
7:05 am
>> i think people just need to realize that, you know, it's really hard to keep out the water from the cave. we cannot get 100% or even, like, 50% of it. >> reporter: water drained from the cave helped reduce the fast-moving current and allowed the boys to walk in some parts previously flooded. but the path out still requires each boy to swim through dark narrow passageways flooded with murky water. two divers guided boys while they held on to a rope. one diver in the front held an oxygen tank and another was in the back. the first four boys emerged from the cave safely sunday. and four more followed on monday. most were flown helicopters, then driven in ambulances to a chiang rai hospital. natisri says getting the boys out safely means everything to thailand. what was it like to see the first kids come out? >> i got very emotional. all my team were.
7:06 am
team just cry. for the past five days, it's just finally see it happen, yes, that's something. >> reporter: now, all of those boys are expected to be staying in the hospital for seven days. thai media is reporting that some parents actually have seen their kids. they had to stay two meters away and wear face masks. that was the first group of four kids. the second group of four kids, their parents also saw them but only through a glass wall. >> how happy those parents must be. the entire world swivelled its head to look at this. give us some scope of the operation there. >> well, you know, it's a worldwide operation at this point. that's what it became, right. you have 1,000 people who have been working here. that doesn't even include the volunteers who showed up to help. and where did these people come from? from all over the world essentially. the united states,lg
7:07 am
australia. 90 divers. the top divers from around the world. all with a single mission, to save this one soccer team and their coach. >> the global effort really joining forces there. anna, can you tell us what went into the process of deciding which boys were coming out first? was it the strongest or was it the weakest because we've been hearing conflicting reports. >> so what we heard initially was they were bringing the strongest boys out first. and the weakest last. i suppose that would build up the strength of weakest boys. but we do want to hear more about that decisionmaking process. because although we did get those tidbits, we didn't really get a methodical understanding of how to organize and who comes out first, second, third, all of that. we're hoping to hear more from officials either tonight, tomorrow, in the coming days, on how all of this bianna. >> anna, thank you.
7:08 am
>> one of the biggest questions for many people is how the boys and their coach managed to get so deep into this cave in the first place. it is monsoon season in thailand so it rains almost every day. authorities believe the soccer team was more than a mile from the entrance, exploring the cave, when the floodwater started pouring in. to get back to the entrance of the cave, the team would have had to walk uphill and fight water that's rushing in downhill. instead, they moved deeper into the cave. well, eventually they had to go through that 15-inch pinch point. they continued more than a quarter mile further into the cave to an area on higher ground where they could all fit on a patch of land. rescue teams are still in a race against time because heavy rain still in the forecast over the next several days could flood the cave faster than water can be pumped out. we'll have more coverage of the cave rescue ahead. mark strassmann visited a cave in florida that can just get as wet and very dark. he'll show us the challenges the boys faced inside for 18 days.
7:09 am
>> we turn now to the other big story. the president's push to reshape the supreme court for decades. it's going to head now to capitol hill this morning where his new nominee will meet with republican leaders. the president called brett kavanaugh's credentials impeccable and unsur passed. he also said kavanaugh has a proven commitment to equal justice. supporters of abortion rights protested against the pick last night outside the supreme court. jan crawford is on capitol hill with a look at the nominee and the next steps. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. judge kavanaugh is going to be escorted by vice president pence when they come here later this morning. he is 53 years old. former law clerk for justice kennedy. he's considered a conservative intellectual powerhouse. his nomination could give republicans a chance to change the direction of the court for years to come. >> this is the most important
7:10 am
decision a president will make. >> reporter: a prime-time address monday, president trump introduced judge kavanaugh to the nation. >> he is considered a judge's judge. a true thought leader among his peers. >> reporter: he has a clear conservative judicial philosophy. >> a judge must be independent and must interpress the law, not make the law. >> reporter: a favorite of the conservative legal establishment with his eleite academic credentials. but he loves coaching his young daughter's teams. >> margaret loves sports and she loves to read. liza loves sports and she loves to talk. >> reporter: but now cavanaugh must face capitol hill where he'll find some old opponents. >> many of us have deep concerns about this nominee. >> reporter: during his con ten
7:11 am
democrats targeted his record on president bush's legal team in the '06 recount and the starr investigation that led to clinton's impeachment. >> impeachment and then conviction. take into account more than just the facts. >> reporter: his post positions on presidential power may also become a focus as special counsel mueller's ongoing special investigation hangs over the presidency. kavanaugh art argued, we should not burden a sitting president with criminal prosecution. if the president does something dastardly, the impeachment process is available. now democrats already are signaling they're going to make this fight about the future of abortion. and, you know, the issue though is republicans kind of have this narrow majority in the senate, so there's very little democrats can do to block him. they squandered the use of the filibuster trying to block
7:12 am
justice gorsuch. let me tell you, they're still trying to hammer him every chance they get. >> we're talking ne ing to sena leader chuck schumer. senator schumer, good morning. >> good morning. >> we know if brett kavanaugh is confirmed this will shift the balance of power on the supreme court for decades to come. republicans controlled the majority, is there anything you can do to stop this nomination? >> yes. well, president trump, with the nomination of judge cavanaugh, has fulfilled or is fulfilling two of his campaign promises. first, to undo women's reproductive freedom. second, to undo aca. i will oppose him on everything i've got. he said he will only appoint pro-life judges. he wanted to send roe back to the states. that means repeal. who has vetted these judge? a preordained list of 25,
7:13 am
preordained by the federalist society and the heritage foundation. the federalist society is run by a man named leonard leo whose goal in life is to repeal roe v. wade. no one has done more to create a supreme court that will repeal r roe then leonard leo. >> senator -- >> similarly, one more point, on health care, president trump said he wanted to repeal aca, unlike what justice reports wanted to do. the heritage foundation which also vetted this list is firmly in favor of repealing. so you put those things together. trump, what he said, who he was going to choose and the vetting of this list. these two -- this nominee will repeal roe and women's reproductive free democrat -- >> senator, you -- >> far against what the american people want -- >> let me just get a question -- >> when they learn this, they're going to oppose the nominee. >> when you questioned kavanaugh
7:14 am
previously for an appointment, you asked him specifically about roe versus wade and kavanaugh said he believes it is binding precedent of the court and he would follow that. why do you believe abortion rights in this country are under threat? >> binding -- when you say follow binding precedent, that's been a trick. look what happened last week. justice reports, just gorsuch, they promised they would follow binding precedent and they undied 40 years of precedent on labor law in the janice case. justice roberts, one of the worst decisions ever, reached far back and overturned 100 years of precedent. it is not good enough to hide behind this. because when they get on the bench, they change. leo and the heritage foundation would not have put someone on the bench who would keep roe. >> when justice soto mayor was up for confirmation, nine republicans voetsed for her,
7:15 am
justice kagan there were five republicans. based on the case you just made about kavanaugh, would it be a betrayal of the party for any democrat to support him in any way? >> i believe if we can prove to the american people, which i believe is truly the case, that this nominee will lead to a court that repeals women's productive freedom, repeals aca with its protections for pre-existing conditions, we will get the majority. if we can make that case, we will get a majority. >> senator, kavanaugh last night made a point to highlight he's hired diverse law clerks. that yell l that kagan hired him at university. we saw many critics on both sides. what's to say a justice cavanaugh won't do the same? >> i don't think he would have been put on this list had he not been one of these hard right judges. there are several others.
7:16 am
at a time when we have the mueller investigation. justice kavanaugh, judge kavanaugh, is way at the extremes. he believes a president shouldn't even be investigated. he has gone so far as to say a president who believes the law's unconstitutional doesn't have to follow it. with the mueller situation, we shouldn't put him on the bench. and then on gun rights, on environmental rights, he's way to the right of the american people. i don't believe because he had law clerks of some sort that makes him any better. if president is fulfilling his campaign promise, hired the most conservative groups to come up with a list and chose from the list. the president shouldn't have chosen from the list and maybe there would be far more bipartisan support. >> a lot of pressure on those five red state democrats. senator chschumer, thank you. academy award winner george clooney was rushed to the hospital in italy after he was involved in a traffic accident while traveling to the site of a
7:17 am
tv production. clooney was riding a scooter when he collided with another vehicle. the second happened on the island of sardinia where he's filming a tv series. s seth doane is monitoring the developments from rome. >> reporter: we spoke with one of the local italian police forces who confirmed clooney has been released from the hospital. the nearest big city on that italian island. he received a cat stan there which reveals no fractures. we were told that he simply had bruises and clooney is okay. clooney had been hit by a late mold her s model a-class. he got out of the car and immediately offered help. clooney had been reportedly heading to the scene, the site of a movie he's filming called

8:03 am
undergo physical and mental evaluations at the hospital. they have been trapped since june 23rd when they explored the cave after practice. there was intense pressure to get them out before heavy rains made the operation riskier. divers and consultants came from around the world to help get the boys out including from u.s., britain, australia and china and japan and finland and belgium. the boys in the hospital are xpeked to be there for at least seven days and two may have lung infections. thai media is reporting that the parents of the first group of four boys were able to see their sons in person but had to stand 2 meters away from each other and wear masks on their facts. the parents of the second group of four boys were able to see them as well but only through a glass partition to protect the kids from infection. those had to be some amazing reunions. >> a huge relief indeed.

lucky parents. sandra clop has 20 years experience and cave dived all around the world. she's here to show us the diving equipment rescuers used to save those kids. good morning. >> good morning. >> you have the full face mask there that the kids were wearing. why was that so important? >> so this is important because if the kids get any water inside a normal scuba mask it can lead to panic and there's nowhere to go. they cannot go straight up. >> how easy would it be for a young boy who doesn't even know how to swim let alone put on something this complicated to put that on and keep it on and go through what they had to go through to get out? >> they need a lot of psychological strength to be able to clear this mask in a very short amount of time, if any water did get in it, to learn how to equalize, these are things people have an intense class on. >> they probably just had a quick instruction. we learned there was one diver with the young boy and then
8:05 am
another one trailing behind. what do you think that was built for? >> that was built for the safety of the kids. so they are probably carrying the tanks for the boys. so they are going to have a longer hose. when they are going through restriction one by one, diver in front of them and then the boy -- it sounds like was coming out with a long hose, 7-foot hose attached to the tank carried by somebody else. >> a challenge for a healthy person to carry all of this equipment, not to mention the psychological stress. we hear the boys were weak, two may have had lung infections. how risky was it for them to go through this process given that? >> the main risk would be panic, i believe because again they cannot go straight up. they have to go out. they have to remain calm and if they feel uncomfortable. then they just have to really focus on staying calm because when you start to move around and panic, you can let water into the system. it's a pretty good seal on these things but still you want to
8:06 am
treat them gently. >> how would in a normal circumstance and give us your thoughts about how it would have worked in this case, how you communicate with other people that you're described as being in like chocolate milk. >> use light signals and cave diving if there's some diving and visibility is worse and to nothing, we have touch contact we do but it takes a long time to train to be able to do blackout scenarios where you can be in touch contact and communicate by touching each other and they don't have time to do that training. >> sandra, based on everything you've heard, would you call this a miracle getting them all out? >> i think they were in very competent hands, a world class team knew what they were doing and the boys felt safe in those hands and anybody who could get them out, it was a team that did. kept them calm and told them what they needed to do and took dive. iving through a cave, they >> so great to have your

8:11 am
president doesn't fully appreciate how different that is from the gorsuch situation. when gorsuch was put through the system, now they effectively have 50-49 because they lost the alabama senate race and john mccain isn't going to be able to vote. secondly, gorsuch was succeeding scalia, it doesn't change the philosophical composition of the court. this time kavanaugh would be replacing kennedy. there's a sense that this is a generational change and philosophical -- and stakes are higher. thirdly the democrat, the pressure on the democrats from the race is far higher now. if you listen to the base, they are saying do everything you can senator schumer to stop this. what's the practical result of that realization or new changing landscape? doesn't it mean collins and mur co-ski will get flooded? >> actually, basically what the democrats have to do is fli

8:13 am
out for democrats in red states? can they oppose this nomination? >> i think there will be enormous pressure on them and i think the tension is the following, trump is more popular in the states than the democratic leadership is. if he decides to lean into this, it's harder for red state democrats but the national fund raising arm of the left you know, national organization for women, national action rights abortion rights, all of these center left groups that care about the issue and think roe v. wade hangs in the balance will be deploying huge amounts of money on these particular red state democrats and i think they are going to have to basically choose between those. it's going to be tougher than gorsuch. >> both sides. thanks. >> president trump disputes a report that his administration tried to shut down a global push to promote breastfeeding, a new study that could encourage parents to rethink what they feed their babies. you're watching "cbs this morning."

a 100% view of everything that we do all the time, then the ability to manipulate us and coerce us becomes a real issue. >> okay, but it is the wild, wild west out there. what control do we have over our data that we're putting out there? >> so, i think there are two things i suggest we need to think about. one is what can we do as individuals. and part of that is being mindful when we do generate data, if we're asked to give our e-mail address or to share locational data, we've got to make a mindful decision, is it worth doing? the second thing is i do think we need to have the courts and the government do some weighing of what the balance ought to be in terms of data control. we now have platforms that are so vast that they really are almost monopolies. and the condition of participating often is surrendering your data. and the question is whether we ought to put some limits on that and saying no. people have a right to say no without sacrificing their ability to access the platform.
8:36 am
>> and of course, what comes to mind are bad actors and nefarious actors who want to steal that data. is the government currently prepared or doing enough to protect american citizens from nefarious actors? >> you know, the government's making progress, but the challenge is that most of the infrastructure is in private hands. and i'll give you a good example. we have the internet of things. we now have smart refrigerators, smart baby cameras. those things are often not built with any security in mind, and that means they can be hijacked by bad actors, and then that becomes the portal to enter into the network and take the network over. so, we need to start to put some standards in place about how to manufacture and deploy these devices, so there is a security element to it and we can protect ourselves. >> so, do you think we'll continue to see more battles like we saw between apple and the fbi as far as taking that data that had been stolen and accessing it? >> well, i think there are going to be challenges about how do we
8:37 am
balance, for example, law enforcement's need for access with a need to protect data against bad actors through encryption. we're going to see battles about which law governs. is it the u.s. law? is it the chinese law? is it the russian law? is it the eu law? because the global environment in which data operates doesn't have borders, but our laws do have borders. so, these are all challenges, in terms of taking our laws and our policies into the 21st century. >> and where does, in terms of any regulations, where do you think it best is applied? is it through laws through congress, which has sometimes been a little bit behind on this thing, or as a former member of the executive branch, is this something that's done through executive agencies somehow? >> i mean, some of it can be done through administrative agencies. you have the ftc, for example, or the fcc have certain regulatory powers, so does dhs. it would be great if congress could do something in this area, but you're quite right, they have not always been successful in doing it. the courts are going to play a role. you know, there's been
8:38 am
discussion of the supreme court today. the supreme court is actually beginning to look at this set of issues. there was a case just a few weeks ago called carpenter, having to do with the ability to access locational cell phone data. >> right. >> and you could see the justices beginning to wrestle with the very issues we're talking about in the book. how do we control the data once it's been generated? so, i think the courts are actually going to play a major role in this. >> finally can i ask you, since you're the former head of the homeland security, what do you think should be going on with reuniting these children with their families? >> i think we ought to reunite the children as quickly as possible. i don't know how they've distributed them, but it seems to me it's a big priority to make sure that every kid is accounted for and then returned to their family. probke ts moving? the courts are actlly pretty -- have a lot of capability in terms of prompting the agencies. and i'm sure at this point there is a strong desire to get this
8:39 am
thing done as quickly as possible. the difficulty is if you didn't front-load the process by telling where people were going to go and keeping track of them, it does become difficult after the fact. and i'm sure they're working hard to do it, and i'm sure the judges are going to really, you know, kind of jab them. >> reunifications are not happening fast enough, though. michael chertoff, thank you. happy to have you on set. exploring data is on shores now. why shipwreck hunters are racing against time to find long history in the depths of the great seas. long-lost history. >> reporter: there are hundreds of shipwrecks lying in the bottom of the great lakes and divers are trying to find hundreds more, but they may be deteriorating faster than anybody thought. the reason, coming up, on "cbs this morning."

i am extremely proud of jackie, gaby and stephanie. we worked with pg&e to save energy because we wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.

♪ ♪ i put my head under water, baby ♪ deep under the great lakes, shipwreck hunters have discovered everything from bathroom fixtures to antique cars and even christmas trees. for many divers, it's a hobby that turned into an obsession. "cbs sunday morning's" lee cowan shows us how these discoveries are now being threatened by an invasive species, potentially more destructive than the ravages of time.
8:44 am
>> reporter: it's an inhospitable place, some 400 feet under water in the near-freezing, inky blackness. but for divers john scoles and john janzen, tales of sunken shipwrecks make the risk worth it. wrecks like the "ss senator," a steel freighter that plummeted to the bottom of lake michigan after a collision in 1929. she took with her almost half her crew and her cargo of more than 200 nash automobiles that never made it to the showroom floor. >> i really don't feel the emotion at the time because i'm more focused on doing the dive and my equipment. it's not until after i get out of the water, that's when i reflect on what i just did and what it means to me. >> reporter: the great lakes were america's maritime highway with all manner of ships carrying all manner of goods. just off wisconsin alone, it's estimated there are as many as
8:45 am
750 lost ships, most of them their final resting places still a maritime mystery. that's where steve rad yoovan a his boat come in, happily named "discovery." >> basically, we're looking for a needle in a haystack. and it's fun to find that needle every once in a while. >> reporter: there's no money in shipwreck hunting. no one is going to discover a spanish gallon full of gold. the reason steve and others like him take to these waters in their own boats with their own expensive gear -- >> i'm starting to see something, yeah. >> there it is. >> reporter: -- is for the love of maritime history and the bragging rights of finding a ship that lake michigan had hoped to claim for good. >> archaeologists like broken-up shipwrecks, but that's because they can study the construction of them. but to me, that's not all that exciting. >> reporter: you want to see something that's intact. >> i want to see a ship. >> reporter: unlike the ocean with its corrosive saltwater, the great lakes have a reputation of entombing their wrecks in almost pristine condition. >> if you're into shipwreck

hunting, this is for you. >> reporter: caitlin zant is a maritime archaeologist with the wisconsin historical society. >> the water is cold and it's fresh, and it's dark and it's deep. and so, all of those components together really help preserve pretty much any kind of material that you can think of. >> reporter: but some unwelcome visitors are beginning to change all that. mussels, zebra and quaga mussels to be exact, have invaded the lakes and the wrecks themselves. it's been happening since the 1980s, but they've reached such numbers, archaeologists fear they now may be doing real damage. >> we know that they're doing something to these wrecks, but we're not entirely sure what yet. >> reporter: what is known is some of the wrecks are beginning to collapse. images from the wreck of a kyle spangler, for example, show the difference five years can make as the mussels pile up, sometimes several inches thick.
8:47 am
>> i think the optimal window as far as getting video and seeing these things is starting to close now. >> reporter: how deep is this dive? >> 210 to the mud, right? >> reporter: we accompanied the johns, as they're known around here, out to the wreck of the "silver lake," an old schooner built in 1889. for more than 100 years, she sat preserved on the frigid bottom. one of her masts is even still standing. >> we're going down, you can see the whole ship. so, it's just breathtaking. >> reporter: that's the one positive side of the mussels. they eat by filtering particles out of the water, which makes the visibility down here almost crystal clear. >> yeah, we filled the whole wreck. we were all over the place. >> reporter: but that visibility also reveals the damage being done. every inch of the wreck, stem to stern, was covered. >> now you see close up of the mussels, you see? >> oh, my god, they're everywhere! >> oh, yeah. >> every inch. >> yep. >> reporter: the fear is those
