camera. turning the tables on a state trooper. the trucker who recorded this traffic stop, laying down the law for the speeding police officer instead. this morning speaking out about why he did it. ♪ this is going to be the best day of my life ♪ and we believe. team usa's superfans are super ready. this man drove from albany to brazil in his r.v. these fans checked extra luggage to show their patriotic pride. the final countdown, now. the excitement starts here on "gma." >> good morning, america. usa. usa. usa. usa. usa. and we do say good morning, america. so much excitement here in times square and across this country. in our red, white and blue this morning. i think i saw george washington in the crowd there. out for the big game.
and look outside our times square studios, in new york city. >> i know what i'm going to be doing around 3:45 this afternoon. i have my place staked out. know where i've watching the game. >> strahan's flying in the food. >> i'm flying in the food from london, like the other gentleman. i had to cancel my golf match to watch the game. >> you did? >> that is commitment, friends. i'm committed to the u.s. >> i know you are. >> we are all. >> we've discussed what happens if they don't win. >> it's not going to happen. >> we believe. we believe. >> we believe. that's right. a lot of news to get to. a lot of severe weather out there slamming the midwest. we have pictures from chicago last night. look at the lightning strikes there. several big buildings at the same time. abc's clayton sandell is in cedar rapids, iowa, with the very latest. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, amy. i want to show you the storm drain, the very spot where two teenagers were swept away by raging floodwaters here. and this morning, they're still looking for one of them. it's one of the many hazards as
the midwest has been pummeled by rainstorms. overnight the march of torrential rainstorms so strong. >> oh, my god. it rolled right over that guy. >> reporter: combined with 80-mile-per-hour winds, blew this tarp on top of the ground crew at a minor league baseball game in cedar rapids, iowa, leaving three with concussions. tornado warnings issued in plain field, illinois. look closely. you can see debris flying through the air. heavy rains across the midwest, from chicago to michigan. watch as blinding conditions almost get the best of even the most experienced storm chasers. storms took out power lines in bevington, iowa, flipping this semi. live power lines setting fires as they came sparking down. while chicago was lit up. lightning striking several skyscrapers all at once. back in cedar rapids, 17-year-old logan blake was sucked by rushing currents down this storm drain next to a
neighborhood school where he had gone to play frisbee with friends. one of logan's friends tried to rescue him and got swept away, too. carried deep into sewage drains underneath the city. that friend came out injured but alive, a mile and a half away. but logan is still missing. >> we got high hopes. he's a strong kid. very athletic kid. and he's got a strong will. we have all the faith in the world. >> reporter: this morning in chicago, 350,000 are without power. and here in cedar rapids, search teams plan on going back into these storm drains to search for that missing teen. but only if the water level is low enough to be safe. david? >> what a terrible story there. clayton, thank you. now, to the tropical weather threatening to soak so many this week as we head into the fourth of july weekend. the first tropical storm of the season expected to form today just off the coast of florida. ginger tracking it all. ginger has the new track coming in. >> i'm hearing from a lot of people. we're on vacation in florida,
what's going to happen? you're on tropical storm watch, if you're anywhere from ft. pierce to daytona beach. this is in the next 48 hours. this is happening relatively quickly here. you will see rain, up to four inches. and flash flooding is possible. wind over 40 miles per hour. and don't go in the ocean if you're not in the right place because you'll see rip currents. that's what we're really concerned about as this depression becomes a storm and potentially our first hurricane of the year. it tracks right up the east coast. thursday night, the outer banks of north carolina, rip currents, winds and clouds spilling off it for parts of the east. this is a big issue going into the holiday weekend. we'll be tracking it the whole time, amy. >> we know you will, ginger. thanks so much. now, to the world cup and the big game that's just a few hours away. team usa versus belgium in the knockout match. and the americans are getting a big boost. paula faris is in salvador where the game will be played. pau paula, good morning. >> reporter: that's right. jozy altidore cleared to play. these guys -- [ cheers ] -- to play. just hours from now, it's do or
die for team usa in this -- but the team says realistically, not sure how many minutes he'll get. just hours from now, it's do or die in this afternoon's game against belgium. star striker jozy altidore is back and ready to play, after suffering a hamstring injury two weeks ago in team usa's opening game of the world cup. >> he's available. and this is what we want. this is what we hoped for. just having him with us is huge. >> reporter: getting past belgium will not be easy. they've only given up one goal in the entire tournament. but the belgians might not be at full strength without key defenders. vincent kompany and another possibly out of today's game due to injury. >> yeah. they're a really good team. a lot of quality. they move the ball well. >> reporter: and the outcome of the game isn't the only thing team usa is worried about. the algerian referee assigned to
the match, sparking concerns of possible bias. >> he scored! >> reporter: in the 2010 games, this goal team usa scored against algeria, knocked the ref's country out of the world cup. >> we hope it's not a concern. we wish he continues to his refereeing in the perfect way he's done so far. is it a good feeling? no. >> reporter: if the u.s. wins, it will be the third time the americans have ever advanced to the quarterfinals. >> so hungry for more. we want to go as far as we possibly can in this competition. >> reporter: and if they win that next game, saturday noon eastern, right here on abc. we'll all be watching, right? >> that's right. >> reporter: david? >> she said behave on the backside of that story. you could tell after what happened on the way in. so excited, all of the fans. alexi lalas joins us from rio. good morning. the giant question here in america. jozy altidore is back. how much will he be used? is he ready? >> that's a tough one. when you talk about a hamstring,
in soccer or any other sport, you worry about putting a player in and starting him and when he plays a couple minutes in, playing at game speed, having that thing pop again, and have another sub. i wouldn't expect to seee jozy altidore starting. maybe he can play a part later on. he's an important part of this team, especially when he's up there. he provides something different than clint dempsey. that hamstring, i worry if you start him. >> in the meantime, size up belgium for us. the current team has been called the golden generation. they could be down a couple of key defenders, as well. how tough are they going to be? >> this is a team that undeniable individual talent. i don't think we've seen the best of them yet. that's a good thing to a certain extent for the u.s. but tim howard described them yesterday as this volcano. i hope they don't erupt tonight against the u.s. but the u.s. should go into this game confident. this is a team that they can beat. this is a team they should feel confident, individually and collectively, coming into this game. so, i'm excited to see how jurgen klinsmann and the guys go up against this belgian team.
but make no mistake about it. there's some massive talent on this belgian team. >> we're ready. alexi lalas with us. thanks, as always. always put this in perspective. michael, what are you thinking as we head into this? >> it's a little scary. anytime a professional athlete has a hamstring injury that's the one thing you cannot really judge. you're not practicing at game speed. the pressure and intensity is not there. it's really something you have to get in the game and do. in soccer, these guys run the entire game. there's no break. there's no way of knowing. you just hope he can go out and not pace himself because that's another thing to try to pace yourself so you don't injure yourself again. >> you heard him say, team usa, going in strong. the game is played this afternoon. our sister network, espn, has the big game. 3:00 p.m. eastern. and before that at noon, argentina against switzerland. in the meantime, let's get the other headlines of the morning. ryan smith in for amy. >> fingers crossed, right? we begin with the breaking news in the middle east. israel launching air strikes
overnight, one day after vowing to get revenge for the murders of three teenagers, one of whom was an american citizen. the fbi now joining the investigation. and abc's alex marquardt is there. alex? >> reporter: good morning, ryan. this is the spot in the west bank where the teens were kidnapped. today, israelis are coming here to light candles to pay their respects. israel accuses the palestinian militant group hamas of the murders. and as israel has cracked down, there's been a growing wave of rockets launched by palestinian militants from the gaza strip into israel. overnight, israel's air force bombed a compound belonging to hamas, which denies being behind the kidnapping, but who israel's prime minister says will pay a heavy price, bringing fears that this region is once again on the brink of war. ryan. >> alex, thank you. new urgency in the crisis in iraq. president obama is sending an additional 300 u.s. troops to protect the embassy in baghdad. june was the deadliest month in iraq in seven years. a controversial court decision as the nation confronts the crisis along the southern
border. the federal appeals court has ruled a mexican teenager fatally shot by a u.s. border patrol agent was protected by the u.s. constitution even though he was on the mexican soil side when he was shot. the decision clears the way for the family of the boy to sue the agent. new concerns about the safety of u.s. auto parts after a major expansion of two recalls. general motors is recalling an additional 8 million vehicles because of faulty ignition switches. the recall, so expensive, that trading in gm stock had to be halted on wall street on monday. chrysler is recalling another 700,000 minivans and suvs because of a similar problem. and in san jose, california, a wildfire erupted on this golf course. you see the flames and a golf cart driving nearby. many golfers continued to play. nearby, the fire grew and the size threatened several homes, forcing about a dozen families to evacuate. and finally, if you need a little motivation before your morning workout, just watch this guy.
77 years old. he's a veteran. you see him in blue. took part in the push-up contest. keep watching. one guy bows out. too tired. his younger competitors put to shame. another guy bows out. this guy just keeps on going. he's the energizer bunny. embarrassing men half his age until that happens. honey, we have to go. he could have kept going, but his wife steps in. i have to go. i want to go to the shopping mall. what are you doing? >> his wife is probably thinking, i only have so much advil for tomorrow. get up. let's go, buddy. >> she needs some of it too. we want to get to amy and a key headline for women's health. >> to medical news now. a new recommendation for women that could mean fewer of the dreaded annual pelvic exams. and we have with us dr. jennifer ashton, also a board-certified ob-gyn. these recommendations were based on a study. what did it find?
>> they looked at 50 studies to evaluate the risks versus the benefits of the pelvic exam to check for cancer and nonserious gyn problems. and what they found for the average risk, nonpregnant woman without symptoms, it's not a great test. and therefore, these recommendations are that women can go from having this test every year to having it every three years. >> how do you know if you fit into that one group? or if you're in the other? >> i think the key message here, and this is so important for women listening, we have to uncouple the pelvic exam from going to their ob-gyn. for many women, this is the only doctor the woman is going to see. we treat the whole woman, not just a body part. and it's important to see that doctor to screen for things like depression, to sexually transmitted infections. >> what do you think of these recommendations? we've seen similar things when it comes to mammographies and pap screenings. what do you think? >> this is going to be controversies. this comes from internists, not obgyn's.
there's still a role on a case-by-case basis. and i agree. >> thank you very much for that great advice. lara. now, we turn to the latest on the oscar pistorius murder trial this morning. the defense is questioning the credibility of the so-called ear witnesses who heard screams coming from the blade runner's house the night he shot his girlfriend. abc's lama hasan has our story. >> reporter: taking center stage in the courtroom this morning, who screamed the night oscar pistorius shot and killed model girlfriend reeva steenkamp. >> you wouldn't think it's possible without exception to be able to identify a male and a female scream? >> one cannot be absolutely certain. >> reporter: a sound expert saying earlier testimony from ear witnesses could be unreliable. the prosecutor, gerrie nel, hitting the point during cross-examination, that steenkamp was fearful during the fight with the blade runner. >> the deceased screamed because she feared for her life. that's abnormal scream. >> yes.
>> reporter: ear witnesses, so critical to this case, say they heard a woman's cry coming from pistorius' home, like this neighbor. >> the female screams. it was blood-curdling. it was something that leaves you cold. >> reporter: but another ear witness, who lived next to the paralympian, says she heard gunshots and then a man wail. >> but in the voice of a man. >> reporter: the state's case hedges on the couple having had a fight that night leading to the shooting. the defense trying to inject doubt into that version with his agent saying they had a serious relationship. >> what was the relationship like? >> for me, i would describe it as a loving and caring relationship. >> reporter: the agent also testifying that just before the shooting, oscar pistorius was a global sports icon set to make five-times or six-times more money than he ever made, implying why would he risk it all? david? lara? >> thank you.
what could be the best story of the morning. the trucker gets pulled over by the police officer, but doesn't take it. he's speaking out this morning. >> turned the tables. >> he turned the law around. that's right. the driver says a trooper was driving recklessly. so the driver decided he's going to lay down the law for the trooper, capturing the whole exchange on camera. >> i pulled you over, for the horn. i don't know what that was about. >> because you were speeding and had your cell phone in your hand. >> reporter: when truck driver brian miner got pulled over by a state trooper for honking his horn unnecessarily, it was the cop that got an earful. >> you honked at me because you believe i was speeding? >> reporter: with his camera rolling, he turned the tables on what he believed was a police officer driving recklessly. >> you are being recorded. >> you are too sglrminer, driving for seven years, said he felt it was his duty to say something. >> if i'm going 70 miles per hour. >> you weren't going 70.
you were going well above 70. >> my heart was racing, beating out of my chest. >> reporter: the officer said he doesn't remember having his phone in his hand. but he does tell miner the law is on his side. >> police officers can use technology when they're driving. >> so, you guys are above the law? >> we're exempt. >> reporter: in illinois, the law does allow officers to use technology while driving. and also drive above the speed limit when on official business. 2 1/2 minutes into their conversation, the officer walks away from the truck. when he returns, he thanks the driver for his concern. >> i didn't write you a ticket. i understand you using the horn. you're trying to -- you saw me speeding. honestly, i wasn't paying attention to my speed. >> reporter: miner says he's not surprised the officer changed his tune. >> that's what happens when they know you're recording. i feel that my video was kind of like me giving him a ticket. it's up to us citizens to film them and bring them accountable for their actions. >> a spokesman for the illinois state police has confirmed that the officer in the video is an illinois state trooper. and says the matter is under review.
>> i liked how the officer -- i know he knew he was being recorded. but he did say, i realize i didn't -- i wasn't paying attention to my speed. >> in law, we might call that an admission of guilt. >> yes. >> on the end there. let's get over to ginger zee. another check of the weather. i can only imagine you have gotten tickets before? or gotten out of them. >> no. i'm horrible at it. i get very sarcastic and weird. oh, you're pulling me over? was i speeding? it's really strange. i can't do the crying thing. good thing i don't drive anymore. looking at the thunderstorms from overnight in chicago. this is what it looks like throughout the night's skies. and today, we do have another severe weather threat. it goes from burlington, vermont, all the way to parts of western pennsylvania, west virginia, kentucky included. northeast arkansas, too. heat ahead of the storm on the east coast. your local weather forecast is coming up in just 30 seconds. but first, here's the tuesday trivia brought to you by folgers coffee.

troubles this morning. he's been so open about his own battles with substance abuse. why he says genetics may be to blame. >> so much to get to this morning. we get to the latest of the georgia father charged with murder for leaving his toddler in a blistering hot car. that father will be back in court this week. this morning, we have new details on the tragic story. abc's steve osunsami has the very latest. >> reporter: justin ross harris is still insisting to georgia police that he accidentally left his son, cooper, in his suv on a 90-degree day for 7 hours, causing the 22-month-old's death, according to search warrants. police have charged harris with murder and cruelty to children, saying he told them he researched children dying in hot cars. according to the warrant, he claimed he was fearful this could happen. >> how do you forget your child? how do you forget your child? if he deliberately forgot his child, may god have mercy on him.
may god have mercy on him. >> reporter: police say harris was on his way home from work, the child was industrial strapped into the car seat. witnesses say he pulled into this parking lot in a panic, but his son was already gone. harris will appear in court thursday afternoon. search warrants revealed sunday, show his wife, leanna harris, told police in the hours after her son's death, that she, too, searched the internet for information on kids and hot cars. mrs. harris has not been charged with a crime. >> there's really no plausible explanation that's come forward at this point, why someone would do such a search. it's devastating evidence to have to overcome. >> reporter: harris' wife spoke out for the first time saturday at their son's funeral, saying she is not angry. and harris was and is a wonderful father. friends and neighbors describe her husband, justin ross, as a kind man. but police are also insisting this wasn't simple negligence. for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta.
we have abc news chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams, here now with more. this is such a difficult story to grasp. how critical will the internet searches be in the state's case against justin harris? >> i think they've been very important up till now. there's two key facts that have been troubling the police. number one is the internet searches. and the fact they believe he went back to his car in the middle of the day. both of those suggest to police this wasn't just an accident. but they're going to have to be able to link these two. remember in the casey anthony case, we had a situation where she was searching for things that would seem -- >> chloroform. >> seem to be incriminating. right? and ultimately, she was acquitted, even though there was a lot of other circumstantial evidence. >> the mother in this case, too, so disturbing. according to the search warrant, also researched hot car deaths and how it occurs. do you anticipate she could be charged in the coming days? >> that won't be enough just to charge her. just the fact that she did the
searches and the fact her child died in the car won't be enough. they have to link her directly to the child's death. they have to prove in some way, shape or form, she and her husband had colluded to do this. had made a decision together to do this, something of that sort. but the searches alone look terrible. and that in conjunction that she's been out there supportive of her husband, is making a lot of people look at her and say, wait a second. what? >> right. >> but that's not going to be enough to charge. >> do you think harris will be released on bond this thursday? >> he could be. bond is not intended to punish. at this point in the trial, we're trying to make sure he shows up for court. now, when you're charged with murder, you can be held without bond. in this case, i wouldn't be surprised if at least the bond is reduced. we shall see. >> all eyes on that courtroom thursday. dan, thanks so much. we're going to turn to the dramatic video of a so-called
glacier slide that goes terribly wrong. what was supposed to be fun turns frightingly dangerous. you hear the two young men falling under a utah glacier. all of it caught on camera. and abc's neal karlinsky has the pictures. >> reporter: 21-year-old devon fister, living a moment of crisis with a gopro camera on him, atop a steep glacier in utah. down below, his long-time friend, randall rees, badly hurt while sliding down on his back. when suddenly, watch closely. >> stop yourself, bro. >> reporter: his friend, aaron speedy slides out of control, too, tumbling after going over a 15-foot cliff. >> are you okay? >> call an ambulance. >> reporter: spread out across the glacier, now two are badly hurt. when devon reaches randall down below, he seems dazed. >> what hurts? what did you hit? tell me if your back hurts. okay. >> reporter: devon gives him the t-shirt off his back to keep warm. >> call the medevac. >> and a friend over the cliff?
>> yeah. there's like a thing of snow. and he slid down the snow. and he couldn't stop. >> reporter: along with three other friends, the three men made what now seems the incredibly foolish choice to slide down this steep, snowy cliff last week, figuring it would be a fun, fast ride. >> good times. >> reporter: the first few runs went fine. just barely. >> that is not safe. >> i was definitely scared. i didn't think i was going to stop. so, it's pretty frightening. >> reporter: randall broke his cheekbone and needed 23 stitches to his face and ankle. aaron was banged up with a sprained ankle but nothing broken. they were eventually rescued by a climbing team and helicopter, after spending most of the night on the mountain. devon by their side, the whole time. >> i think if he wouldn't have been there, things would have been a lot different. >> reporter: for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> we're glad the whole thing ended well.
>> please, nobody try that at home. >> very true. ginger, you're also focused on the northwest. but this is about the heat. >> triple-digit heat in tracy, california, led to a beautiful sunset. thank you for sending us that. today, portland, oregon, is in a heat advisory. they'll go to 96. seattle, just one degree shy of tying a record today. they didn't hit 80 in june. and the heat is on. fresno, 108. 99 for reno. 112 for las vegas. quickly, we're talking about that storm. here's how much rain you can look for, as far central as it gets in florida. over four inches on the coast. this is the next 48 hours. as it moves north, we'll see some big issues and we'll be >> all that weather, brought to you by ashley furniture.

ninja warrior and the girls want to play princess. you see the division around 5, 6, 7, 8. it gets exacerbated when it hits puberty, because girls are thinking about boys. that means girlie and falling into the stereotypes. that's what happens when it hits puberty. >> i'm a father to 9-year-old girls. i have my hands full. what can i do to maintain their self-image as strong, confident and capable of ladies that will turn into women? >> it starts with us. we have to compliment them on not just how pretty they are. now smart they are. talented they are. if they're interested in digging up dirt, encourage that. don't say, don't get dirty. and it also means bringing in aunts and uncles and teachers and grandparents and everyone else. >> running like a girl, as they said, can mean winning the race. >> absolutely. >> including the women we get to sit next to. i'm not kidding. they run this show.

stock? there's something to it that's amazing. >> your probably eating it too close. it's a honey doughnut with fried chicken next to it. >> it's amazing. >> how about the rest of the doughnuts? why are you talking? you should be eating our doughnuts. >> i want to ask lee, too. so many fried chickens in the land. how did you know there would be so many varieties? and what inspired you to do this? >> we took the ultimate fried chicken road trip last summer. we had our hit list. and we went on the road. and through social media, every time we went through a city, we had a hit list. and talking to one chef, like michael, he would tell us about another great restaurant. and we tweeted. and our list, where we started and ended, was so different, thanks to social media and thanks to the chefs and their influence. >> we're salivating. >> how do you stay in shape? >> don't look at me. >> our doughnuts cause you to lose weight. >> i don't believe that. >> doughnuts for strength.
>> ginger, he's trying the chicken. how is it? >> it's great. >> this is a custom glaze that we make for lee. this isn't just found in our stores. this is just in the book. all right? yeah. we just glaze it. like a sweet chili soy. that's it. let's eat it. >> everyone at home, you can get the recipe for this dish, our website, goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! ginger, if you're done with your chicken, how about the weather? >> yes. that was some good stuff. making you feel like summer, like the fourth of july. you know who else feels like summer? seattle, this morning. it is that time of year we get to check in. you see the space needle there. they're going to have one of the hottest days they've had in over a month, close to 90. they'll end up in the 80s. a record will be 89. we don't think it will be quite there. but warmer weather. out in front of that front would be severe storms. hail, damaging winds. a brief tornado possible, from parts of west virginia through pittsburgh, pennsylvania. anywhere in orange has to be on the lookout later this afternoon and evening.

the unpredictable and frankly amazing, kelly osbourne is taking on a new take of the seven dwarves. and kelly's character, she does whatever she can to create chaos. we have a clip of held di and her husband, right now. >> the only time the queen rings the bell, is when there's trouble. but we're right here. we're not making any trouble. wait a minute. what if someone else is making trouble? >> that sounds like trouble. >> come on. >> where are we going? >> to find out who is making trouble instead of us. >> they're going to be in trouble. >> how much fun is it to be a cartoon character? and a naughty one at that? >> not just the whole experience of learning voiceover acting, but to be an original disney villain is one of the biggest dreams come true for me. i don't have the words to
express it. >> your fans right might be surprised. but you grew up watching these cartoons. >> i did. >> and this is a real goal for you. >> it was one of those things. everyone dreams of being a princess and they never think it's going to happen. but i actually ended up a disney villain. think about it ten years ago. disney would have been like, go away. and now, i'm a disney girl. and it's awesome. and i get to work with the most incredible people and have created this character, using this inspiration from all different people. like there's a little lucille ball, maleficent, veruca salt and my mother. >> there's a little of your mom in there, for sure. your character has pink hair. >> you know, i never saw what the character looked like or any of the animation until almost 18 months into recording. and it had already been drawn two years prior to that. >> that's funny. are you inspired by her? or is she inspired by you? >> i think she became part of my
alter ego. and i kind of morphed into her in a strange way. >> tell me about your cut. and also about stories, a tattoo that you have on the side of your head. is there a story behind that? >> there is a story behind that. but i can't tell it yet. it's got a lot of meaning to me. and my mom is not very happy. >> your mom, though, is -- >> the hair will grow and you won't see it. >> that's right. and you've been adventurous with your hair. you probably heard me before. i'm a whimp. you just go for it. it's sort of your pallet. >> it is. you can have so much fun with hair because if you're lucky enough, it will grow back. you can start it again. i don't want to wake up and look the same. >> i know. i need to be inspired by you. >> i'm the kind of person that will go out of their way to purposely make themselves look different. i like the way i look different. i try so hard to be someone else for so long.
and i surrendered. but i'm me. i'm just going to be me. >> that personal style has translated into a fashion line. >> yes, it has. >> tell us about k.o. >> i can't tell you the name of it yet. but it is launching in september. and i've going from size 0 to 24. there's a huge gap in the market for, you know, nice clothes for all size of women. and there's supportive holding in it. if the design doesn't look good in all three patterns, you have to cut three patterns, then it doesn't go through. it's been a real big challenge. but i joined with the amazing company. and it's all -- i have my first fitting on my hands, pinning things, changing the way things look. it's so much fun. >> what a ride. always so great to see you. looking great. >> thank you for having me. >> congrats on the fashion career, on the clothing and on "the 7d." july 7th, at 10:00 a.m. eastern
