7:03 am
says he fell asleep on the job inside. waking, to his horror, in the air where he pounded and screamed from the plane's front baggage compartment under the passengers. fortunately, it's the same compartment that holds pets, so it was pressurized and kept at a safe temperature. >> a u.s. marshal emerged and started yelling really loud into the ground, hey, we're turning around. we're getting ready to land. hold on to something. it was pretty craze. >> reporter: alaska air says the man is a contractor for menzies aviation and that he passed a drug test after being checked out at a nearby hospital. they say his team noticed him missing and called and texted his cell phone but didn't get an answer. authorities say the baggage handler is doing just fine this morning. he wasn't hurt, no charges are planned. as for his future and his job here at the airport, stay tuned. george? >> okay, neal. thank you very much.
7:04 am
abc's aviation analyst john nance also in seattle this morning. thank you, john, for joining us. we have heard about stowaways before, but i've never heard of anybody getting stuck in a cargo hold by accident. >> well this has happened a couple of times in the past history of jetliners, but it's very unusual. in this case, it looks like it's the result of an assumption. they couldn't find him. they assumed he was someplace else. it was the end of a very long day and they assume edd he went home at the end of the day. he hadn't. >> they work long days. a routine part of the job. >> they do. that's one of the things this investigation has to look at not just did this individual fall asleep, obviously so. but is there chronic fatigue out there because we don't want fatigued people around jetliners and if the schedules are creating this sort of situation, that needs to be looked at. >> yeah we've seen it with pilots. now we see it with handlers. the bottom line here, the cargo hold is pressurized. so, what kind of danger was this man actually in? >> mainly boredom, fright, because it is warm and the same air and the same pressurization
7:05 am
you have in the cabin is down there. there's no light though. and on top of that, there's no inflight movie or no restroom, so it can get very inconvenient. >> john nance, thank you very much. >> glad we're able to laugh about that. all right, george, thank you. now to that fatal police shooting. this one in tulsa, oklahoma. a volunteer reserve deputy sheriff has now been charged with manslaughter after shooting an unarmed man. authorities say he reached for his taser but accidentally grabbed his handgun. abc's ryan smith has that story for us. >> reporter: this is the moment an undercover operation turns tragic. >> stop right there. >> reporter: as tulsa deputies were chasing 44-year-old eric harris, running from police after allegedly selling drugs and guns to an undercover officer. >> roll on your stomach. >> reporter: no one expected this.

7:07 am
executive, who has been acting as a volunteer deputy sheriff since 2008, was even on the scene in the first place? for "good morning america," ryan smith, abc news, new york. >> our thanks to ryan. we're going to bring in abc's dan abrams to weigh in on more about this. so the charge of manslaughter, what does that mean? >> yeah, second degree manslaughter really means it was a criminal mistake. right? he's going to say on the one hand this was a regular mistake that any person could make. the prosecutors here are saying, no, there's more than that. there's a reasonable duty of care that you have to use. you didn't use it. you violated it. and so you move from being just a mistake to a criminal mistake now facing the possibility of two to four years behind bars. >> so, how do you think this is going to play out in court, dan? >> there will be basic agreement that he didn't do it on purpose. i don't think anyone is going to argue that he intentional lyly did this but what they'll argue over is what should that mean and they're going to go through sort of moment by moment what happened?
7:08 am
how did it happen? and would an ordinary person, someone who is using reasonable care, have done what he did? and i think he's going to try to use, by the way -- >> the volunteer reserve deputy sheriff. many people hadn't even heard of that before. >> right. i think that's going to become part of the defense. he's going to say, look, i didn't do this regularly. this is the sort of mistake, innocent mistake someone like me could make. prosecutors are going to say, not so innocent. >> it will be interesting to see how this plays out. >> yeah. >> all right, dan, thank you. >> thank you, guys. we turn to hillary clinton, fresh off an under-the-radar road trip from new york city. she will make her first official campaign appearance in iowa this morning. our clinton correspondent cecilia vega on the trail. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. stealth is the word we're hearing out here on the campaign trail. who knew hillary clinton likes herself a good road trip? we're told this whole thing was her idea. a political where's waldo? this morning, hillary clinton is spending her first two days on the campaign trail driving from new york to the hawkeye state in
7:09 am
what she calls her scooby van. just two public sightings in two days. one at this pennsylvania gas station posing for a picture with this family and another at an ohio chipotle, caught on security camera ordering a chicken burrito bowl. the former secretary of state wearing sunglasses. no one even recognized her. overnight a campaign aide revealing to abc news details of clinton's mystery trip through the heartland. just as she launched on sunday with this video. >> i'm running for president. >> reporter: clinton, her campaign staffers, and a secret service detail left her home in chappaqua, new york, driving through new jersey, into pennsylvania where they made that gas station pit stop, spending the night in pittsburgh, heading west before stopping at that chipotle in maumee, ohio, monday where she also ordered guac. then there was a stop in joliet, illinois and then iowa or bust. >> everyday americans need a
7:10 am
champion, and i want to be that champion. >> reporter: and iowa is an important state for clinton. she lost here back in 2008 for that first official stop here today, she tours a community college, her campaign saying she's coming here with humility ready to shake every single hand, george, clearly trying to avoid the appearance of a coronation. >> and that's what the iowa voters expect okay, cecilia, thanks very much. while hillary was keeping a low profile on the road, marco rubio launching his white house bid in a big way at the freedom tower. i sat down with the 43-year-old first term senator at his west miami home hours before the kickoff speech and asked him why he wants to be president. >> i think this country is at a generational moment where it needs to decide not what party it wants in charge but what kind of country are we going to want to be moving forward? >> but why you? >> i realize every country in the world has rich people. and i'm glad we have rich people in america too but what makes us unique is this is the one place on earth where millions and millions of people who aren't rich still own a
7:11 am
home, are able to save for retirement, are able to leave their kids better off than themselves. and i think if we ever lose that we stop being special. our next president of the united states has to be one that understands that, is passionate about it. has a plan to revive it and expand it to reach more people than ever. >> i read that you called hillary clinton in one word "yesterday." what does that mean? >> well, one of the challenges we have today in this country is we are trying to fix 21st century problems with 20th century ideas, right? so we have people from yesterday, leaders that are still grounded in the 20th century who think if we just pour more money into the existing higher education system we'll get a 21st century result. it isn't true anymore. >> she says she wants to run to be the champion of everyday americans. why are you running? >> because her ideas to help everyday americans will not help everyday americans. >> i got to ask you about jeb bush. it's been described as your mentor. he was governor when you were speaker of the house. you said when you were running for senate you would defer if he wanted the senate seat. why not defer to him now? >> that was at a different time
7:12 am
in my life and in my career and the country was at a different moment at that point. i think today we're even further along into the 21st century but not our policies, and i feel uniquely called to at least lend my voice to the effort. jeb is my friend. he's still my friend. he'll continue to be my friend. we'll continue to be friends. i have tremendous admiration for him. i'm not running against him. >> hard to be friends when you're running against him. >> no i don't agree with that. i think it's important to understand that i'm not running against jeb. he's not running against me, i don't think. we're competing for the same job. >> you gave a birthday tribute where you would ask often yourself what would jeb do? >> sure. >> if you're asking yourself that, why shouldn't people choose him? >> i think jeb bush continues to be a model in terms of how you approach public policy but we've reached a moment now, not just in my career but in the history of the country where i believe that it needs a republican party that is new and vibrant, that understands the future, has an agenda for that future. i feel qualified to offer that. that's why i'm running for president. >> reporter: what would it mean
7:13 am
for america to see the first latino president? >> i don't know. i mean, i haven't viewed my candidacy in that light. i'm sure it would be an important moment for a lot of people. not just for americans of hispanic descent but for anyone who comes from families like mine. >> senator, thank you. >> thank you. >> you know even though he doesn't agree with president obama on much, he wrote that he teared up at president obama when he won because it meant the first african-american president. >> you're going to have more with rubio and his wife in the last half hour. >> yes and he has four little kids, as well. amy with other top stories. breaking news overnight. >> that's right. we're just getting word about a deadly terror attack on a government building in the capital of somalia. gunmen stormed the ministry of higher education in mogadishu after a suicide car bombing and there are reports hostages have been taken. at least ten were killed. it appears to the latest attack by the islamic militant group al shabaab which attacked a college in neighboring kenya earlier this month killing 150 people. also breaking right now a passenger jet making a hard landing in japan. this asana airlines flight was
7:14 am
arriving from south korea when it skidded off the runway. the tail section reportedly touched the runway and sparks were seen. local media reports about 20 people have suffered minor injuries. back here in this country, a tragic accident near seattle. a concrete slab fell from an overpass that is under construction, crushing a pickup truck and killing the family of three inside, including an infant. investigators are now looking into the decision to leave that road open. a disaster averted at this work site in dallas. a crane toppling over. whoo! slamming into a museum. workers scrambled to get out of the way. the crane operator suffered only minor injuries. incredibly. and a dangerous rescue mission in los angeles overnight. overnight crews have been trying to lure a mountain lion out from under a home. take a look. it wandered into a crawl space and is refusing to leave. but imagine this a man who was working on the house crawled down there to just install a security system and then came
7:15 am
face to face with the big cat just a few feet away. the mountain lion has been spotted in the neighborhood before. wildlife officials have fired beanbags and tennis balls in hopes of getting it to come out, so far with no success. and a frightening moment at this racetrack in louisiana. look at that. a car spinning out of control, hitting the crew member, flipping him through the air. you'll see it there in slow motion. whoo! but he walked away from the crash. and do you want to know why? he was wearing his helmet. finally, a reminder to everyone out there, it ain't over till it's over, especially when you're running a race. check out this runner from the university of oregon. he thinks he's got the race in the bag. look at him celebrating, whoo-hoo! but he didn't even see the guy coming up from behind. oh, yeah, beating him there at the line. oh! later, the agony of needless defeat set in. and it became clear he learned his lesson. >> yes, he did. >> it ain't over till it's over. >> did you see the look on his
7:16 am
face? at the last moment, wow. >> yeah. >> he learned it the hard way. >> the very hard way. >> reminds me of what my momma used to say when you strut, you stumble. when you strut you stumble. he certainly did. i want to talk about someone we're used to strutting and winning, always doing so well. we all know about tom brady. we all know he knows how to throw a football. i know that firsthand. his first pitch at the red sox home opener on monday shows it's not the same when you put a baseball in his hand. abc's reena ninan, she has the story. >> brady throws, caught. >> reporter: overnight, the super bowl champ with the golden arm less than pitch perfect. >> four-time super bowl champion, tom brady, to throw the ceremonial first pitch. >> reporter: watch again. brady himself even seeming worried it won't go well mouthing "oh, no" before he winds up, and, look, this guy diving out of the way as red sox star big papi behind the plate struggles to make the stop. social media lighting up after
7:17 am
the not so terrific toss. "jan brady throws better than tom brady," said one. >> marcia, marcia, marcia. >> reporter: but others coming to his defense. one fan tweeting that "brady bounced that first pitch way out of the frame." it's as much as baseball as peanuts and cracker jacks. 50 cent sent his way out of the frame. >> just a bit outside. >> reporter: mariah carey's went straight into the ground. and even president obama couldn't bring the heat. but brady is an athlete. the patriots even posting this video on twitter of him taking batting practice with the red sox afterwards. turns out maybe he was just on the wrong side of the ball. for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> yes, stick to football, tom. >> you were saying during the piece, it's not that easy. >> you know, it's not that easy. and it's scary and then when you get the ball, all the baseball players walk up to the top of the dugout, cross their arms, and they look at you like, show us
7:18 am
what you got, football guy. it is the most -- it's the scariest thing i have ever done sportswise. >> you know when you're tom brady, though i think you can be bad at something. >> it makes me feel a little bit better. >> you're enjoying his pain. >> no, no, no, just enjoying that he's human. that's all. let's go to ginger. you got some flash flooding there. >> yes. let's start with ft. worth. texas had quite a bit of flooding. and you can see it right here this video from someone's cell phone in the front yard. there's a car submerged. how about the video from lubbock, texas. this video coming in, some 6 or even 7 inches of rain falling. now that flash flooding moving to the east and south texas, new orleans to mobile and right there in parts of the ohio river valley.

8:17 am
re-entry to the united states after going abroad rutherford has had to fly to france to see her children. >> what makes this case so crazy there was no allegation that kelly was a bad parent. the heart of the ruling was basically saying we don't want to force these kids to fly around to visit their father who can't come into the united states so we're going to just move them to france. >> reporter: perhaps best known for her role on "gossip girl" she played an elegant mom that seemed 0 to have it altogether. >> i just got message that our kids are in some kind of trouble at school. >> reporter: offscreen, she's devastated. her daughter and son both born in the u.s. now living 6,000 miles away. how does it feel at this point? are you more frustrated or angry or sad? >> i can sit here and tell you how often i cry. i can tell you how it feels to leave my kids in a foreign country. to go see them after not seeing them for weeks on end. not being able to take them to school, pick them up from school, dress them, smell them,
8:18 am
hug them. >> reporter: the expense of the ongoing legal battle leading rutherford to file for bankruptcy. most recently she was in federal court arguing her children's constitutional rights as u.s. citizens. but that court dismissed the case saying the children have not been deported. they retain their united states citizenship. and once they reach the age of majority they'll be free to choose where to reside. under such circumstances, it would plainly be improper for the federal courts to assume jurisdiction over the case. the california court had mandated that giersch needed to continue to apply for a visa so he could return to the states with the children. but the state department confirm confirms that has not happened. >> i think she has two options. null one go back to california, say, hey, california court, have your ruling enforced. and/or "b," make this political. have the state department get involved. have some leading political figures make a compelling argument that this is ridiculous. >> i told my son, i said, you know, mommy is still fighting
8:19 am
for you. my children, not only were they taken away, but they were sent to a foreign country. i don't know how you even explain to someone what it feels like. >> when we asked for comment, giersch's lawyer told us daniel continues to protect the children from negativity and therefore will continue to not engage in any of these unfortunate and false media fabrications which only serve one person, but clearly not the children. rutherford maintains this is all about protecting her children and others. she's established an organization with that goal, that no other children will have to go through what hers are. not only is this story heartbreaking, it's hard to believe. >> it's hard to imagine. >> there's got to be a better solution. there's got to be. it is yahoo! your day time. everyone, this morning, we're tackling an issue a lot of parents are uncomfortable confronting. is it wrong to have a favorite child? what should you do if your kids think you do? abc's reena ninan has the story of one mommy blogger who has had
8:20 am
trouble bonding with one of her kis and isn't afraid to talk about it. >> do you guys have favorite kids? >> reporter: when it comes to favoritism most parents try to remain neutral, like frankie on "the middle." >> honey, don't be ridiculous. parents love all their children infinitely. >> reporter: but for others, the decision is not always a hard one. >> i guess i would say axl. what? >> what do you think? >> reporter: 30-year-old mother of two lauren hartmann says her 3-year-old daughter is her favorite, writing in her blog, i don't feel guilty for having a favorite child, despite the immense love i have for both of my children, i couldn't help feeling like the bond with my daughter, my first born, was different, stronger. >> i definitely had those fears. my heart wouldn't have enough room to love another child. there's something so special about your first child. we really had a strong bond. which one goes with which? >> reporter: lauren admits when she first realized she was growing closer to her daughter, she initially felt ashamed.
8:21 am
>> it feels awful to think, i have a favorite. it doesn't mean that i don't love my son just as much. i love them both. but i have had more time to get to know her and to develop that bond and my bond with my son is going to grow. >> pretty. >> reporter: though she may have a favorite today. >> oops. >> reporter: lauren says she knows at some point, the roles may change. >> i think that over the years, i'll probably just -- i'll probably connect with my children each in different ways. maybe during the teenage years when my daughter is maybe really challenging and emotional, i might find myself gravitating towards my son. relationships are ever changing. and i feel like children are no exception to that. >> reporter: for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> okay, that was one mom's story. we wanted to know what you thought about all this. we asked, is it okay to have a favorite child? 74% of you said no. 26% said yes.
8:22 am
let's hear from lindsey powers. from yahoo!. welcome. >> hi, thanks for having me. >> what's your take? what's your experience been? >> so i think with this it kind of depends on where these kids are in their lives, right? this mom says she's gotten to know her child a little bit better. if a child is an age that you relate to more, you may find that they may be your quote/unquote favorite child but it may be different the next week. >> this is something that parents need to think about this. there was a study that suggests that the perception a parent has a favorite child can push them towards alcohol addiction, drug addiction. so advice to parents who are feeling this? >> yeah well i think perception is key, what you said because you want to make sure that one kid doesn't feel like their parent likes them more than the other. that can lead to issues. even, you know, sibling rivalry. the relationship with their parents. but it's important to take some time to make sure that each kid feels special. >> one-on-one time because, a lot of us, i have two daughters. you have to try to find things
8:23 am
that you can share with each child separate from one another, yes? >> exactly. so each child feels like they have their time to shine. because if you have a kid that maybe has a baseball game one week that kid is kind of the star of the family. the next week, someone may have a ballet recital. even if they don't have an event, it's important to carve out that time. doesn't need to be expensive or doesn't need to be fancy. can be lunch. can be just a quick walk around the block. something my husband and i do with our son all the tiemme to make sure we have personal time with him. >> it's that quality time we've been talking about. >> great advice. >> thank you so much. next up in the "heat index" disney night on "dancing with the stars." lots of magic in the ballroom. but suzanne somers and her partner, tony, heading home. and abc's cameron mathison has all the buzz from the ballroom. ♪ >> reporter: a night filled with fantasy. the stars dancing to delightful disney musical numbers. >> you poor unfortunate soul ♪ >> reporter: actress/singer rumer willis channeling her
