7:15 am
what i want to convey is this can happen to anyone at any age. and while we know that the risk of stroke does increase if you're over 65, three-quarters of strokes happen in populations over 65, the risk doubles every ten years over the age of 55. there's still a fair percentage of people who have strokes in their younger ages. we also have seen an increase in the incidents of strokes in a younger population. whether that's because we're diagnosing them more often or because there's an increase in risk factors, things like high blood pressure and diabetes. it's really unclear. but the big message to young people is, look, you need to understand that you're at risk. understand what your risk factors are. importantly, recognize symptoms. time is brain. every minute that goes by in a large stroke, you lose 2 million brain cells. this damage is irreversible. it's very important to act on symptoms, even if you think they go away, even if you think they're not a big deal. you need to get to the hospital because treatments require intervention in a short window of time.
7:16 am
>> symptoms like what? >> numbness or tingling in an arm or leg, inability to see well or confusion or trouble walking or difficulty with your speech or facial droop, lack of coordination, massive headache. any of those things. >> and 80% of strokes are preventable. >> yes. >> stop s>> exactly. controlling blood pressure, which is very important, stopping smoking, controlling your weight, diet, exercise. all the same things we talk about for heart disease. >> thank you. >> thank you, tara. very surprising to get that news yesterday. thank you. two young sisters who survived alone in the california wilderness for nearly two days are telling their story today. rescuers found caroline and leia carrico near grove state park. that was on sunday. the girls are now recovering at their home. they were found alive and very well about a mile and a half from their house. jamie yuccas is in los angeles with how the massive rescue effort went down. >> reporter: good morning. the girls' parents say it's normal for them to play
7:17 am
unsupervised on their 80-acre property, but this time around, the sisters found themselves in unfamiliar territory and unsure how to get home. >> i said to go a little farther. >> reporter: 5-year-old caroline and her 8-year-old sister leia went a little bit too far during a hike in the woods behinder that ho-- behind their home on friday. when they didn't return, their frantic parents reported them missing. >> awful. terrified and guilty. >> spent two days crying my eyes out, looking everywhere we could think of to look. >> reporter: while their parents feared the worst, older sister leia was going into survival mode. >> it was starting to drizzle, so i knew we had to find shelter fast. and we had my sister's we turned it sideways so each of us had an arm hole. >> reporter: realizing they couldn't make it home, leia tried to keep her little sister calm. >> my sister cried the whole

to recovery. we spoke to residents in smith station yesterday and they are waking up, of course, to their homes destroyed. cars damaged. for some, everything they own littered on their front lawn. now kim serda showed us what's left of her home. she took shelter in her bedroom closet during the tornado and barely survived by clinging on to a shoe rack. >> i could feel the pressure building up. my ears popping and i heard the window over there blow. and when it blew, this thing shot up and i was being sucked up into the attic. i was this high off the ground. >> how loud was it? >> it's just undescribable. it blew out my back bathroom. everywhere you look, there's a tree somewhere in or on my house. >> how is your family? >> we're fine. >> everybody is okay? >> everybody is fine. we've got cuts and my husband -- something hit him in the back and my back is sore but i think it's from the pressure, but

we're fine. we're alive. >> reporter: emergency responders are searching for more victims or survivors using dogs and heat detecting drones. but there's still a massive amount of debris to sift through. people in the hardest hit area beauregard had about ten minutes of warning before that tornado hit. while that is shorter than the national average of about 14 minutes, it's partly because that tornado was moving very fast. there's also some conflicting reports on whether the tornado sirens actually went off here in lee county. and what's interesting is the emergency management director says she is pretty sure that they did. >> investigators will be looking to confirm that. unbelievable what kim and her family experienced. they are among the lucky ones who survived. omar, thank you. the fda is expected to approve the first new class of depression medication in decades. it's a nasal spray version of

8:06 am
>> anti-depressants didn't help much. and over the next five years, kayla got so desperate, she tried to kill herself three times. then she started ketamine infusions at this clinic. >> i didn't have suicidal thoughts every day, which i used to have, and i just felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. >> traditional anti-depressants work on neurotransmitters that help nerves in the brain communicate. ketamine targets a difference one gould glutamate and works much faster than other drugs. >> what we've heard from patients who have gotten ketamine is, wow, this is what it feels like to be normal. they never thought they were going to feel that way again. it's very dramatic. >> reporter: dr. dennis charney the street where it's called special k. how does it make people feel there? >> what the individual is
8:07 am
looking for when they take special k is a feeling of highness, an out of body experience. and this in general was not a major issue when you take the lower doses that are needed to feel better from depression. >> each of kayla's current treatments costs $475. and they are not reimbursed by insurance. if the fda approves the nasal spray version, it will likely be covered. for kayla, that's reason enough to see if it works just as well as the infusions. >> it really helps your entire life. not just, oh, let's get high for an hour and then go back to a depressing life. it's more -- it changes your life in a positive way. >> this newest spray has to be administered under a doctor's supervision and is only for those who have failed at least two anti-depressants. dr. charney says if anti-depressants are working for you, stick with them. >> this sounds really promising.
8:08 am
what are the risks associated with the ketamine spray? >> oversaidation, blood pressure and pulse can go up. with any new treatment you have to follow it as more patients are being treated and find if there are new side effects and how effective it is. >> how long does the treatment last? >> it's been given in varying doses. can be once a week, twice a week as a spray and sometimes you have to keep giving it week after week after week and it can wear off. one of the things we'll see is, can you stop or do you have to just keep giving it over time. so a lot of questions remain unanswered. it's something for people who are so depressed. and they have that feeling. my patients who have that say it's like you're sinking to the bottom of the earth and there's no stopping you. and one of the things the anti-depressants that work, it gives your feet a bottom. maybe it's not a happy pill but you'll not sink lower than that. that feeling of stability means a lot. >> just to give people hope. thank you, jon. cases of alleged sex abuse

8:16 am
turkey, where she's based. holly, good morning. >> good morning. as you can probably see, i am b month so i'm no longer doing any travel for work but a few weeks ago, i went to finland to see what exactly they are getting right when it comes to motherhood and how they're doing it. a woman in labor has gone into cardiac arrest. these medics need to save her life and her baby. but this patient is just a mannequin, and here at helsinki university hospital, they hold emergency drills like this one once a week. finland's health care system has helped give it the lowest maternal death r and it's available here to everyone for next to nothing. dr. iden techi.
8:17 am
every woman gets a private room and the option of a water birth. >> 100 euros you will pay and of that you'll get almost 50% back as reimbursement. >> that's under $60 to have a baby compared with the u.s. where the average natural birth costs over $12,000. and insurance doesn't cover all of it. can what finland is doing be replicated in a country like the u.s.? >> definitely. >> you are saying there's no reason that the u.s. can't achieve this? >> no. no reason. just pure politics. >> the maternal death rate in d, they'ut it in y doubled half. at a play group in helsinki, we met laura smith from detroit who is living here with her finnish husband and their ten-month-old baby ella. maternal death rates are even higher for african-american women.
8:18 am
one of the reasons she chose to have ella in finland instead of back home. >> my concerns mattered. my voice mattered. they saw me. they took care of me no matter what i look like. and that's something i couldn't be certain about in the states. so when you come back -- >> reporter: mother and baby are also entitled to free checkups. >> these are vaccinations. >> reporter: and when ella goes to day care, that will cost less than $100 a week. it's all paid for with tax dollars. the wealthy hand over much more in finland than the u.s. >> we are collecting a lot of taxes, but if you go and ask from the thifinns, are they oka with it, everybody says, yes. we have good use with that system. >> reporter: the system began in the 1930s when finland started handing out free baby boxes to new families filled with basic necessities. >> oh, look.
8:19 am
it's a baby -- >> reporter: they're still giving them out today. the box doubles as a cot. and the government also wants parents to spend time with their babies. in finland, you're guaranteed around four months paid maternity leave by law. and parents can split another six months paid parental leave, though not at the same time. for ellen and julian, that's more time spent with their three daughters. >> in some parts of the u.s., you get no paid maternity leave. >> how do you do then? >> reporter: the long, frozen winter in finland is hard. but this is one country where they are trying to make parenthood easier. nobody who we met in finland bragged about their success. rather, they are trying to figure out how to improve things further. by encouraging more fathers to take paternity leave and that government minister who you just saw is trying to figure out how
8:20 am
to encourage finns to have more babies because despite all of those benefits, the birth rate in finland is declining. gayle? >> that's an interesting nugget. thank you. holly williams reporting from istanbul. tomorrow on cbs this morning, we continue our world of mother series in kenya. we'll take you to a tiny village in northern kenya where young women have escaped domestic violence and are learning to become mothers in areas where men are banned. i like how they're thinking in finland. >> i was there last summer. mothers could drop off their children in a park and there are paid nannies to take care of the kids. >> society needs to decide how they're going to pay for it? 24% sales tax. i'm reading the minimum tax rate, individual tax rate is about 25%. and so if americans decide they want to pay more and they trust their government to do that, these are the outcomes you can have. america has made a different
8:21 am
choice. >> and some have say they've made the choice have to 50 million uninsured and they've decided that's okay. so it's certainly something -- >> also a much smaller country. >> that's why we do these stories. >> they are talkers. >> see, children are valuable, and they are. in the days leading up to international women's day on friday, the cbs this morning podcast is featuring conversations with inspiring and influential women. today, ruth carter. the first black american to win an oscar for best costume design. go, ruth. she discusses how she created the iconic looks for the superhero blockbuster "black panther." ruth has been at it a long time. kudos to her. listen wherever you like to get your podcast. social media influencers go as far as they can to change our behavior. new evidence that children's eating is affected by what they see online. you're watching "cbs this morning."

shameful and so there's things that go with boys, including they're not socialized to talk about vulnerability or they have a greater sexual response. a lot of their sexual abuse doesn't hurt and produces a sexual response in the child which can be very confusing. >> i'm reminded of the larry nassar scandal, when this doctor was abusing these children too, some of them were doctors themselves, and the parents. how do parents not know and how do parents look for the warning signs, even by somebody powerful that they respect? >> that used on a question for me, a struggle for me when i first started this work with offenders. when i finally understood how doo deeply killed they are at exploiting, weaponizing, thingsd niceness, they exploit all the things that we consider, make us good people. >> you said beware the power of nice. >> right. >> what do you mean, what do you mean? >> nice is an extremely powerful
8:37 am
weapon. it's very controlling. if you don't reciprocate in niceness, it makes you the problem. if you're not nice back and it also -- we attribute a lot of character traits and things like kindness and honesty and truthfulness to niceness when nice is a very superficial behavior. >> michael jackson was such an idiosyncratic character, but as norah points out in the james that'sic association, the catholic church. how do parents talk to their children to keep this from happening in the first place? >> well, first of all, pay attention if someone's paying too much attention to your child. don't be star struck by that kind of attention.tet somebody your child. look for presents that are unexplained or reluctance with your child to communicate with you or a change of attachment. but most of all, if -- understand that parents can be groomed just as well. i mean, they can be manipulated.
8:38 am
they can be tricked. and if your gut is telling you something's off, something's off. don't talk yourself out of that. as well as -- i'm sorry. >> no, go ahead. >> we need to educate kids about what's healthy in terms of sexuality and when to say yes, and what -- and give them agency over their body, and not to treat sex like a dark secret because that pervades their ability to come talk about it to us. >> well, i was just going to ask you about that. one of the things we heard from both of those eaccusers, they didn't know anything, didn't understand what was happening with their bodies, when should gh havintalk to children about what >> children on up need to learn the right words for body parts so when they tell they won't be confused, not be forced to hug people, learn how to respect sexuality and intimacy and the choices and the difference between privacy and secrecy.
8:39 am
we also have to rid ourselves of this narrative we have about sexual abuse that it's violent and frightening, and easily identifiable because even adult victims of sexual assault often do not know they were sexually assaulted because it doesn't meet their narrative of what rape or ass >> they go back to their abuser too. who you do you explain that? >> they form a true attachment of love and we forget that the abuse is only a component of the overall relationship. so the offender may provide them other things like feeling special, feeling loved, giving them gifts. all the things that would require a loss of the individual if they tell. >> these are such helpful tips and discussions and we should also note, too, that i think pediatricians are required, starting at a certain age, to have this discussion alone with the child to ask them if they are being touched inappropriately by people. that is required. >> it's important to ask but it's also important to recognize
