7:11 am
danger zones like the one in which malaysia flight 17 was shut down. abc's david kerley has the story. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lara you know, we've all been worried about flying ever since this shootdown, and days after the emergency meeting was called to try to keep this from ever happening again. this morning, nearly two weeks after the shootdown over ukraine it is still too dangerous for investigators to work this grisly scene. sparking outrage. >> recovery of the bodies and proper investigation of the event is still being hampered by the activities of the people in control of that area. it's an appalling situation. >> reporter: this emergency meeting of international aviation officials called tuesday because of that suspected russian anti-aircraft missile which reached 33,000 feet to bring down the 777 with nearly 300 on board. many of us left wondering, is it safe to fly? there are plenty of conflict zones around the world where airlines are warned to stay away or stay high.
7:12 am
that's what airlines were told in ukraine. stay high above. sadly, it was not enough. >> the world's airlines are angry and i suspect the same is true for each of the 3.3 billion people who board aircraft this year. >> reporter: so the airlines and international leaders are now calling on nations to be more honest and quick with information about the safety of their skies. >> in short, we need the right information at the right time and the right place. >> reporter: some countries argue such releases could jeopardize their national security. an argument rejected. >> when considering whether or not they will share information, of course they should, if they know something and know it's not safe. how could they sit back and watch innocent people threatened in this way? >> reporter: an international task force will be formed and the u.n. will be asked for new rules to govern anti-aircraft weapons like chemical or biological weapons but don't expect any quick action, lara. this panel isn't expected to meet again, this high-level
7:13 am
panel until early next year. >> all right. but they're talking. thank you very much, david. we turn now to the latest on the kidnapping of new hampshire teenager abigail hernandez. dramatic scene in court tuesday. she was right there in the front row when the man accused of holding her captive for nine months was charged. abc's ryan smith has the latest from conway, new hampshire. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's not often that we see somebody as young as abigail hernandez face her alleged captor in court just days after returning home. but there she was remarkably poised as we're now learning more about the man now sitting in jail for allegedly denying her freedom for nine months. in a packed new hampshire courtroom tuesday, abigail hernandez seen for the first time publicly since her disappearance watching from the front row as her alleged kidnapper nathaniel kibby can arraigned with bail set at $1 million. >> the allegation is that you committed the offense of kidnapping. >> reporter: the remarkably poised 15-year-old flanked by
7:14 am
her mother and sister never making eye contact with the man accused of snatching her off the treat in october as she walked home from school. other than a mysterious letter sent to her mother there was to sign of abby until last sunday when she suddenly returned home. >> i think she's starting to feel a little bit of peace. she gets to wake up and hug her mom. >> i cannot tell you how a child like that can get through the nine months and endure but she has done that. >> reporter: kibby charged one count of felony kidnapping faces up to seven years in prison if investigated. he has not entered a plea. >> if there is additional evidence that other crimes will be committed, those charges will be brought. >> reporter: according to court documents kibby's criminal history goes back to 1988, including convictions on simple assault and breach of bail conditions. he was even in court just last week for sentencing on a charge of criminal trespass. abby had just returned home three days earlier. this morning, we've also learned kibby was recently laid off from his job as a machine operator.
7:15 am
>> this person, he kept to himself, didn't really talk to anybody. >> reporter: meanwhile, the fbi still searching kibby's property including this red storage container in his yard. some describing it as an above-ground bunker. so at this point it's interesting, his next court date, august 12th. his preliminary hearing, that's when prosecutors must present enough evidence to bind him over for trial. so, at that point, we may learn more about how abbey returned only, and the alleged offenses that kibby committed against her. george. >> ryan, we saw the fbi at his property right now but the police were actually at kibby's house back in march. >> reporter: that's right. related to a dispute that he was having with someone, he actually asked police to come to his house because he had guns in his possession and that it might violate his parole. so according to court documents they went to his house to collect those guns and that was during the time that abigail was missing. >> okay, ryan smith, thanks very much. george, we turn now to this
7:16 am
incredible near-miss caught on tape. hair-raising video capturing the horrifying moment that two women realize a freight train is coming right at them. abc's linsey davis is here with the story. linsey, this is terrifying to watch. >> yeah, what a close call, good morning to you, lara. what made this so horrifying is that these women, who we now know are in their 30s, just happened to be on the bridge portion of the track at the time the train started bearing down on them and they quickly realized they could not outrun the train. >> get off! go back. >> reporter: watch as this heart-pounding scene from "stand by me" plays out in real life on an indiana railroad. a 14,000 ton freight train hoisted 80 feet above an indiana lake, traveling 25 miles per hour, along a narrow bridge, when suddenly, the engineer spots two women directly in its path. you can hear him apply the brake
7:17 am
right here. but the train keeps going. >> when you have a train that heavy, it took the train only running 25 miles an hour about 1500 feet to come to a stop. >> reporter: both women begin to run but realizing they can't outrun the 100-car coal train they make a split-second life or death decision. the woman in yellow quickly lying down in the middle of the track. the one tripping nearly falling off the side but leaping back on to the track hitting the deck. >> at which point in time the train ran over them and then came to a complete stop about maybe 20 seconds later or so. the engineer thought he had killed two people. >> reporter: but miraculously the women survived by being as flush with the tracks as possible. there's a space of about ten inches between the bottom of the train and the track. >> even if a locomotive clears you like it did these two people, you could still get killed by something else underneath the train. >> reporter: the conductor says when he called out to the women they said they were fine aside from a stubbed toe.
7:18 am
these women very fortunate to be alive. but now they're in trouble after fleeing the scene both women are likely facing charges for criminal trespassing. >> oh, my goodness. >> so lucky. >> i don't think i would have made that choice. >> so counterintuitive to go right where the train is. >> i think i would have jumped off the bridge. they made the smart call. >> i love how we're talking about it as if we would be in that situation. >> next time i -- >> my heart is racing. >> i know. >> it's incredible. >> ginger, your board is on fire over there. >> it is. this is how we like to start this weather. check it out. yosemite, you know that fire is going on. grown overnight but contained to 35% but still many variables coming together for terrible fire weather. so you've got dry lightning possibilities, the red flag warnings in place. gusts could go up to 45 miles per hour. that big wedge out west and dipping. atlanta, a record cold low, ooh, in the upper 50s.

and then kelsey grammer's emotional confrontation with his sister's killer. why the actor says he forgives him now. we'll hear all about it. then it's a celebrity showdown and it's caught on camera. overnight, orlando bloom reportedly going after justin bieber at a celeb hot spot. what set off this a-list scuffle. >> a dispute over what it shows. we'll get into that. we begin with the trial of a michigan man charged with murdering an unarmed teen on his porch. the prosecution expected to rest as early as today in this high-profile trial and abc's alex perez brings us the latest from detroit. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. that's right, the prosecution is close to resting its case. jurors heard testimony from a gun expert who says wafer had to know the gun was loaded. this morning, more evidence contradicting theodore wafer, the 55-year-old charged with fatally shooting 19-year-old
7:32 am
renisha mcbride, a gun expert testifying the story wafer told police he accidently fired his shotgun is impossible. >> first needs to be loaded, that needs to be chambered and then the safety needs to be taken from safe to off. >> reporter: in this dash cam audio recorded the morning of the incident wafer is heard telling an officer on scene he didn't know his gun was loaded. >> i didn't know there was a round in there. >> reporter: a dispatch operator testified wafer told him the shooting was an accident. but defense attorneys arguing wafer intentionally fired the shotgun fearing for his own life when last november mcbride ended up on his front porch drunk pounding on his door in the middle of the night. prosecutors say mcbride posed no threat to wafer arguing she was drunk and injured after crashing her car before the shooting. one expert testifying this spiderweb crack in the glass likely indicates mcbride's head hit the windshield. >> may be possible for the driver to strike that windshield in some way, shape or fashion, giving those dynamics. >> reporter: wafer has pleaded not guilty but the big question
7:33 am
remains, will he testify? former prosecutor todd flood believes the defense has no choice. >> he basically said he must take the stand in order for the jury to believe him. >> there's nothing in this case so far for a juror to believe anything in evidence of self-defense. >> reporter: and we could know if wafer will take the stand very soon. prosecutors are expected to call the medical examiner to wrap up their case today. clearing the way for the defense to argue their side of all this. george. >> okay, alex. thanks. let's bring in our legal team, chief legal affairs anchor dan abrams and nancy grace host of hln's "nancy grace". nancy, let me begin with you. the prosecution about to wrap up. how have they done? >> i think the prosecution has done an excellent job. and there is recently been quite a skirmish in the courtroom too by the defense to try and allow in some selfies taken by the victim showing her partying suggesting that she was out of line that night, that's not
7:34 am
going to come in. the judge has disallowed it and this is why. i had a case like this very early on when i was prosecuting where the defense tries to argue that the aggressor, in this case, the young girl, had a reputation for violence and here they're trying to say she was basically a mini thug. well, unless the defendant knows of that reputation and then goes into his thinking, wow, i've got to pull my gun and shoot, she's going to kill me then that is irrelevant in the case and the judge has just ruled on that. >> and, dan, you pointed out the defense has had two somewhat contradictory defenses. >> that's the problem here is on the one hand it's self-defense and on the other hand it seems to be a mistake and those are at odds. right? because self-defense means, i intentionally shot someone because i was in reasonable fear for my safety and my life and i felt it was necessary to do it. but that's not what he's arguing here, it seem, at least. so far it seems the defense is going to say, it was
7:35 am
self-defense up to the point of when he fired the weapon. meaning he goes and gets his weapon, he prepares himself and all of this by the way is legitimate, right here, someone knocking on the door. the question becomes on the firing of the weapon, it sounds like he's saying, no, not self-defense, but it was a mistake. meaning it was an accidental discharge 6789 tough to argue both of those things at the same time. >> nancy, where is the defense on stronger ground? >> excuse me? >> where is the defense on stronger ground? >> oh, well, i think the defense is in a very bad position. what they're going to be claiming is that he was so afraid of this aggressor that he opened the door and fired. i think the only way to get any ground, any traction at all -- and i would never do this if i were the defense lawyer -- is to put him on the stand, because he's going to be carved up like
7:36 am
a thanksgiving turkey. i mean, come on. he says he couldn't find a cell phone but he could find his 12 gauge? and like the expert said, you got to load it, you got to cock it and take off the safety and it's a 6.5-pound trigger pull. so this was no accident. he's changing stories and fyi, if either of you two gentlemen end up in the backseat of a patrol car, hello, you're being recorded. everything he said in that patrol car was recorded, it came into evidence and he basically said, hey, who knocks on your door at 4:30 in the morning. i shot her. >> he has to -- >> i'll make a note of that, by the way, nancy, thank you. >> note to self. note to self. >> he has to testify. it's just -- there is no defense without him testifying in connection with this case. so without his testimony, there's nothing -- >> dan, that's their only choice. >> that's right. >> it's thought a good choice but that's their only choice. >> that's it and, look, if i'm the defense in this case i'm shooting to -- shooting, so to speak, to find one or two jurors who will say, you know what, i
7:37 am
think a reasonable person in that situation might have done the same thing. go for a hung jury. >> they've got one other choice. they can attack the state. they can say, sloppy police work. >> yeah, but that's not going to work in this kind of case. >> come look at the door in it may not but when you don't have a choice, you got to go for anything. you have to swing into the air, even if there's nothing there. >> race -- >> nothing on the front door, nothing on the side door, nothing. no mark, not even a dent. >> so you asked about race coming into play. the bottom line is race will not be mentioned in the courtroom and yet every single juror you have to believe will be thinking about it so as a technical legal matter, race isn't an issue, shouldn't be an issue and yet as a practical matter there's no question that race is going to come into play both in terms of the jury makeup and what's going through their minds as they're evaluating the case in thanks very much. let's get the weather from ginger. we are going to begin in michigan because yesterday hail falling and now cool and unsettled behind the system.

8:20 am
it's an app that uses money to motivate your workouts. >> she has a secret weapon. pact. >> reporter: and it worked. tiffany lost 90 pounds. >> it just seemed like it was just for me. it was made for me, and i realized i could make money at it. >> reporter: you give the app your credit card or paypay information. each week you pledge you'll do a certain number of workouts and you say what penalty you'll pay if you miss one. a minimum $5 fine is assessed if you skip the gym. but if you make all those workouts, your reward money comes from the pot of fines from people who fail to honor their pacts. >> it was a motivator to make sure that i did go to the gym because i told them that i was going to, and they would charge me if i didn't. >> reporter: so how does the app actually know that you've gone for a walk or been to the gym and didn't just say you worked out? >> well, there's two ways. you either have to actually go to the gym and check in with the app, or it can be counted on steps on your fitbit.
8:21 am
>> reporter: the app uses the gps your phone to check in at a known gym and monitor how long you stay. or you can track steps taken with a fitness band or miles run again with the phone's gps. each time you go to the gym, you check in, and it uses the gps in your phone to verify you're really there. tiffany walked away with $41 in her pocket. >> it is nice to have an income where i say, hey, this is mine and i made that all by myself. >> reporter: the money she's gained is great, but the weight she's lost, priceless. for "good morning america" becky worley, abc news, napa, california. >> it's kind of ingenious. >> i love that idea. >> it sounds like a win/win and we wanted to get you in on the act. here are the results of our "gma" flash poll. we asked would you pay for an app that charges if you miss your workouts and only 19% of you said yes, 81% said no. >> so, no one agrees with what we just said. >> we're part of the 19. >> yeah. well, nobody wants to pay because they're feeling a little tired. >> exactly.
8:22 am
that's the whole point and that's why you have to get to the gym. i love it. finalally in our "heat index," one dad who learned an important lesson for all fathers. he learned it the hard way. had a fight with his wife after blaming her for not keeping the house clean. >> oh. >> abc's abbie boudreau shows us what happened. >> them's are fighting words. >> what happened here? >> reporter: kids, they may be small but their messes not so much. just ask any "modern family." >> life is messy sometimes. >> reporter: melody's husband clint admits he once blamed his wife for their messy home. >> my first thought was is that, you know, you got one job. you got one job to clean the house. >> reporter: and like many moms melody edwards said she's so busy, keeping a tidy home can be a challenge. >> it's more important for me to just ignore the housework sometimes and give my kids attention so they feel important. >> reporter: but in a controversial new "washington post" essay called "i blamed my wife for our messy house, i was wrong for many reasons," clint explains how he did a total 180. >> melody and i had a pretty
8:23 am
candid conversation about it and eventually she just said, i can either wash the dishes or i can, you know, help nora learn how to walk. it's either this or that. >> reporter: and while many feel this article is spot on, the edwards have also come under fire. one person writing, "there is never a good excuse for living in squalor or dirt." >> we still vacuum. the kids still have chores. we're not living in squalor. >> reporter: now with clint helping with dinner and laundry, melody says life is easier, though still a little messy. >> i don't look at my house that she's done something wrong. it's evidence she had an important day. >> reporter: inspiring the clean freak in me to take a little break and enjoy what's most important. >> maybe daddy will do the dishes tonight. >> uh-huh. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> okay. let's talk about this now with ericka souter from the square.com.
8:24 am
one of the things he writes about, people generally do blame the wife for a messy home. we cover it all the time in the stir. >> women feel trapped in the same notions about what it means to be a wife and mom. so much on our plate it's just not about cooking and cleaning and making sure there's toilet paper in the bathroom. >> why do you think this struck such a chord? is it that or because women are in many cases working? >> yeah, a lot of cases women are bringing in 50% of the household income or spending just as much time with the kids doing things that are important, and this guy gets it. he gets that we need help and he's speaking out about it. that's not something a lot of men have done. >> no, i agree and i have said this before. i am a neat freak myself, but you know what, i know, and my kids are older and this has to be age appropriate. what about getting your kids to help. as you play, we don't move on to the next thing until we all clean and everybody clears the table and everybody helps with something. >> sounds so good. i like that. i love it. >> but if you do it early on, i really think they feel responsible.
8:25 am
