8:01 am
before seen pictures of prince's emergency landing just days before he died. >> cfr will be waiting. they want you to go to the west center north ramp. >> emergency crews responding. was there a doctor on board? plus, the search warrant at his local pharmacy. was it a prescription drug overdose? good morning. we're going to start with the chaos in california. protesters swarming a hotel where donald trump was about to speak. the candidate, look at this, forced to ditch his motorcade, secret service in tow and get him in through a side door. >> they clashed with supporters and knocking over that barricade. keep in mind, everybody, it's still april. if trump is the nominee, we could be seeing a whole lot more of this all the way up through november. we're talking possibly six months of this. yeah, you know, and speaking of the nomination, there is a key contest coming up in just three days in the state
8:02 am
>> now, if trump can win there, he may have the republican nomination all but sealed which means we won't be talking about that open convention. his most formidable remaining rival, ted cruz, is putting up a fierce fight. it may be cruz's last stand and abc's devin dwyer is out on the trail in indiana for us this morning. good morning, devin. >> reporter: hey, good morning, paula. indiana is shaping up to be make or break but the candidates have their eyes focused on the biggest prize still up for grabs, california, that's where for the second day in a row donald trump's visit sparked an extraordinary scene. thousands of liberal activists blocked donald trump from a grand entrance at this hotel friday. crowds swarming past barricades, clashing with police. this trump look-alike even scuffling with protesters outside where california republicans were holding their convention. the mayhem forcing trump to take a detour bailing on his motorcade to hike through the grass with his secret service detail to a back entrance just
8:03 am
>> that was not the easiest entrance i've ever made. we went under a fence and through a fence and, oh, boy, it felt like i was crossing the border actually, you know. it's true. i was crossing the border. >> reporter: the clash in california comes as trump zeros in on indiana. 57 delegates up for grabs tuesday. >> this coming week we break the all-time record. and we'll break the all-time record by probably 4 million votes. i mean nobody has ever seen anything like this. it's a movement. >> reporter: ted cruz says hoosiers are at the center of a crossroads. >> a choice between one campaign that is based on yelling and screaming and cursing and insults and another campaign that is a positive, optimistic, forward-looking, conservative campaign. >> reporter: to stop trump, cruz is banking on an all-star team including indiana's governor mike pence. >> i'm not against anybody. but i will be voting for ted cruz. >> reporter: some cruz allies are taking personal shots.
8:04 am
beck who stumps for cruz mocked trump's appearance by smearing crushed cheetos on his face. >> do i look like donald trump? >> reporter: now, ted cruz today will attend that same california convention where the protests broke out yesterday. he's leaving the campaigning in indiana to his wife heidi. carly fiorina, a couple members of congress. donald trump is taking the day off. dan. >> yeah, maybe he'll have some crushed cheetos. devin, thank you. let's get more now from abc news political analyst matt dowd. matt, good morning to you. let's just talk about the chaos we saw at the trump rally in california. if we're seeing this now and it's not even may, what does that mean going forward if he's the nominee? >> well, the last time i saw an escape like that with donald trump, sean penn did an interview at the end of it, so i think we're moving from chaos to mayhem to bedlam in the course
8:05 am
turning out to be less of a wimbledon tennis match, which is normally what happens at conventions and much more to an english soccer game with hooliganism so i think it's only going to increase over the course of this time and cleveland is going to be a wow. >> the convention this summer in cleveland. i don't know how many metaphors you got into that first answer but i salute you. let's talk about indiana. t-minus three days. why is that state so important and can cruz win? >> well, i think it's a pivot state for both races, for both the democratic race and republican race and i think hillary clinton and donald trump are the presumptive nominees. if they both win in indiana on there is no way that ted cruz or john kasich or anybody else can catch up and do this. indiana will be the final sort of point in the race where we say we have two nominees and let's get out a general election. >> let me just say on the republican side for a second. governor pence, has endorsed cruz. does that matter to you? >> i think he's very well
8:06 am
saw in the endorsement, first of all, he did it over the radio and didn't even appear with ted cruz and spent a big chunk of his time talking about the positives of donald trump so i think it's going to have little or no effect. i think if you want an endorsement in the course of this, donald trump got it which was bobby knight, the former coach of indiana university. that i think is the endorsement that could have an impact in the race. >> bobby knight, a huge, huge name in indiana as paula has been reminding me all morning. matt, thank you. we appreciate your metaphors and similes. come back tomorrow and a reminder, don't miss "this week" tomorrow morning. martha raddatz goes one-on-one with senator ted cruz tomorrow about to make perhaps a last stand in indiana. paula, over to you. >> it is a bona fide fact, do not underestimate the power of bobby knight. and we want to move now to a breaking story overnight. tragedy at a carnival. two teens thrown from a ride at a texas church. one died. an investigation is under way right now, and abc's marci gonzalez is here following it all for us. hi, marci.
8:07 am
police say two of the girls were thrown from that spinning ride that is a staple of so many of these traveling carnivals. what should have been a fun night out for those high school friends quickly turned into a terrifying tragedy. two teenage girls ejected from a sizzler ride at an el paso area carnival. one dead this morning after slamming into a metal barricade. she was just 16 years old. the other, a 15-year-old, rushed to a nearby hospital. a third friend riding with them not injured. her father saying his daughter survived by hooking her hands to the metal bar and holding on as tight as she could. he says the three of them were the only people on the ride. the trio, who all attended a local high school together, were at the st. thomas aquinas church festival celebrating the dia de los ninos festival. this youtube video shows what a sizzler ride normally looks like. investigators this morning are still working to figure out what caused the accident.
8:08 am
statutes. there's inspections that are required. whether or not this vendor is up to par with that, it hasn't been determined. >> reporter: and we reached out to that amusement park company and the church but have not heard back. we're told the girl who was hospitalized is expected to make a full recovery. >> her dad said she saved her own life by holding on. >> the third girl did, yeah. >> marci, thank you very much. dan. >> terrifying. marci, thank you. let's talk severe weather and a dangerous line of storms hitting the south. tornadoes touching down, streets swamped by heavy rain, flash flooding and more violent weather on tap for today. abc's phillip mena is in pass christian, mississippi, where they've been conducting water rescues. phillip, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, good morning. yeah, dangerous road conditions, this street is now part of the wolf river rising 10 feet in less than 36 hours. but this morning, the gulf coast
8:09 am
battered by these severe storms. overnight, mother nature continuing its unrelenting assault, tornadoes bearing down on the southern plains. hail the size of softballs in multiple states, violently raining down on this swimming pool whiting out the grass around it. storefronts and businesses in lynn dale, texas, ripped open by a reported tornado. >> widespread damage throughout the central part of the lynndale fire district both within the city and in the county. >> our house is destroyed. >> there it is. >> reporter: in oklahoma, tornadoes shredding through the area. one family forced to ride out the storm at their children's school. chris allen, father of six, returned to a home leveled beyond recognition. >> you know, we could always rebuild and replace, but all of us are safe so that's the most important thing. this is a great community to live in, and we got a bunch of friends and family and we're just trying to pick up what's
8:10 am
>> reporter: winds so strong, this semi truck was blown off the road. in little rock, arkansas, heavy rains triggering flash floods prompting the closing of several roads. back here in mississippi, this area is under a flood warning until tonight, and more rain is on the way. paula. >> all right, phillip, thank you. we want to move to the latest on what caused the sudden death of prince. the investigation is focusing on drugs and a possible mystery doctor. eva pilgrim is outside prince's paisley park home in minnesota. she has more for us this morning. hi, eva. >> reporter: good morning, paula. details of this investigation trickling out. the focus now on this doctor and who prescribed prince this medication. this morning, new images of prince's health scare just days before he died. >> cfr will be waiting. they want you to go to the west center north ramp. >> reporter: emergency vehicles meeting prince's plane on the

8:13 am
millions. for 21-year-old laremy tunsil it meant drama and a loss of $8 million, and that was just the start. laremy tunsil received his official dolphins jersey but offered little in the way of explanation. >> it's a great opportunity. i don't know nothing about that. like i said, i'm blessed just to be here. >> reporter: for the alleged hack of his social media account on nfl draft day. >> i'm here to talk about the miami dolphins. >> reporter: moments before thursday's draft, this video tweeted out from tunsil's twitter account, the hopeful number one pick in the draft allegedly wearing a gas mask and smoking. minutes later tunsil tumbling to number 13. picked up by the dolphins but then this screen shot sent to his instagram followers of an alleged conversation the offensive tackle had with an ole miss staff member agreeing to give the student money after he texted, coach, mom's light bill is due.
8:14 am
college coach, tunsil fessing up. >> so was there an exchange between you and your coach for money? >> i have to say yes. >> reporter: ole miss telling abc news the university is aware of the reports from the nfl draft regarding laremy tunsil. we will aggressively investigate and fully cooperate with the ncaa and s.e.c. roger goodell seemed to be taking it in stride during an interview with espn's "mike and mike." >> hopefully he's going to turn out to be a great young player. >> reporter: and the dolphins brass explaining their choice of draft pick. >> obviously there was some mistakes he had made in his past. we were comfortable with that. all the research we had done, we're very comfortable with his character. >> the sports talk around this story has been immense. tunsil taking criticism for his actions, of course, the hacks are still a mystery, ole miss with the spotlight on them now and commissioner roger goodell calling it all exciting. >> what? >> while viewers agree, it's
8:15 am
like reality tv. don't you think? >> slightly. i don't know if you want to be compared to reality tv though if you're the national football league. >> this is like "the bachelor." 21-year-old men. tunsil lost 8 million in the process. >> $8 million. he can seemingly move on from this, but ole miss, there are some severe ramifications. >> spotlight certainly on ole miss. the school of "blindside," michael oher, they're now being blindsided. >> exciting as the commissioner says. >> open to interpretation. thanks, tony. >> to put it mildly. we're going to send things over to ron who is keeping track of all the other stories that we're following this morning. good morning, ron. >> good morning to you, paula, dan. good morning, everyone. we begin with 16 u.s. military personnel including a general being disciplined for their role in last october's bombing of a civilian hospital in afghanistan that killed 42 civilians. a 3,000-page pentagon report details a series of errors that led to the bombing of the

your home environment, pets, clothes, they should all be kind of washed down before coming into the house because that's really your sacred environment. >> you're bringing it actually to the bedroom. >> exactly? where you sleep. my son is really suffering right now. he sleeps with a cold compress on his eyes. i make sure i wash them every night to get the pollen off. but itchy eyes. itchy eyes? reducing exposure so people who wear contacts, maybe put those go to glasses because they create a barrier and wearing a broad brim hat of course can help and there's over-the-counter and help you once you become symptomatic but the poor guy. >> i love the sunglasses advice. what about medications? >> so, medication, this is something actually, paula, that i speak to people every single day who are suffering and misinformed or taking their meds incorrectly. allergy medications should be taken at night, two reasons, one because the blood levels of those meds are best in the morning when you wake up and allergic symptoms actually peak
