7:05 am
lost their child that's my child's age that i'm sure they felt was safe. >> reporter: this morning while the city grieves investigators arining tight-lipped not releasing any details of what happened sunday at the kansas park. >> our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. >> reporter: this is what the ride called verruckt, german for insane, looks like from the top standing at 168 feet high it's taller than the statue of liberty and plummets its thrill seekers a jaw-dropping 17 stories in just seconds. tubers hitting speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour. commercials for the ride even asking the question -- >> are you insane? >> reporter: the slide requires a minimum height of 54 inches antwo to three riders have to be in a raft with a total weight of at least 400 pounds. when the ride opened two years ago, sliders had to be at least
7:06 am
that has since changed but before it opened many raised questions about its safety. especially after watching these early safety tests showing sandbag dummies flying off the slide. the ride's opening delayed at least three times while the park rewoed i adding seat belts and safety netting. >> quite psibly this incident is not going to be a result of a mechanicalssue, more possibly a result of an human error. >> reporter: and the park will be clod today as a team of investigators works to figure out what exactly what went wrong here. >> thanks, alex. we're joined now by the president and the ceo of the national safety council, deborah hersman. thanks for joining us. so many question raised by this accident. the company had taken many steps to put in safety measures before the ride opened. but what kind of questions are you asking right now? what's on top of your mind? >> you know, i think first really is to let that investigation play out. it's good that they've closed the park but we really want to understand what happened here and giving officials the time
7:07 am
properly will give us a lot more answers. >> they added seat belts. they added safety netting. they had weight requirements. so, is this more likely human error? >> you know, i think it's really too early to tell. we really don't know what happened. very tragic event here. peope toleomarks, water parks, amusement parks hoping to have fun but they certainly expect a safe ride and so we want to make sure that whenever everyone goes to a park that they do follow the height, weight and age restrictions, that they don't try to loosen up the restraints definely if you're going to a water park make sure you know how to swim >> have we had many problems with water p across the country? >>ou know, the good is we don't see fatalies. they're so rare but we do see injuries, but they're also very infrequent. we know that some of the places that can be really dangerous in
7:08 am
making sure that when yo around pools, if you don't know how to swim, parents, you want to make sure that you've got a close eye, close hand on your children. we see some injuries occur in pools every year and we see people die because of drowning. but certainly some serious injuries can occur on places like slides and so whether humans are involved or whether it's equipment, you really want to be careful. we see head, neck and back injuries on slides. >> this ride was called insane. too far? >> you kw, i think, you know, ride safe?on really is, is the and if the ride is safe, we want to make suhat evyone who rides the ride is safe. and so, taking the preions th we ed, if there are changes that need to be made i'm sure that this park will be looking closely at that. but ultimate there's also some responsibility for local and state authorities to take a look ma it, as well as the
7:09 am
>> okay, deborah hersman, thanks for joining s mous thiing. >>hank you. >> so lots of questions to be answered but, boy, our hearts go out to that family. >> absolutely. it's so important to think about those thingshe sai we're going to move on now to the race for the white house and donald trump struggling t get back on track a tough poll number. our new poll shows hillary clinton with an eight-point lead abc's tom llamas traing it all for us. good morning, tom. >>eporter: lara, george, gd morning to you. donald trump and hillary clinton will be showcasing different economic plans this week as trump is using clinton's own words against her. this morning, as some wonder if trump's campaign is coming unhinged, the republican nominee lobbing that same attack on hillary clinton. >> she is a totally unhinged person, she's unbalanced. honestly, i don't think she's all there. >> reporter: trump seizing on this statement clinton made
7:10 am
discussing her e-mail server. so i may have short-circuited it and forhat i, you know, will try to clarify. >> reporter: the trump campaign posting this video on social media portraying clinton as a robot. >> i may have short-circuited it. >> reporter: and trump having a field day with that short-circuit comment. >> s took short-circuit in the brain and she's got problems. i mean, if we had real people, this would bal pe a reblem for her. but i think that the people of this country don want mebody that is going to short-circuit up here. okay. not as your president. >> reporter: trump's new attacks come on the hes ofew polls that show him in a summer slump. our abc news/"washington post" poll showing many voters worried about trump. two-thirds say he has the wrong temperament. almost as many say he's unqualified and untrustworthy.
7:11 am
morell mad "this week" in regards rump's relationship with russian leader vladimir pun. >> from mr. trump's perspective, right, he simply heard putin compliment him. he then responded by complimenting him. he never thought that he might be being played. >> reporter: trump firing back on twitter calling morell, a man who has made some serious bad calls and a total clinton flunky. and today in detroit trump will unve h and we have a preview this morning. here are some highlights. trumps want to repeal and replace obamacare and limit taxation of busine, all businesses to 15% and stop all payments using tax dollarso the u.n. global warming programs and also exclude child care expenses from taxation. now, the clinton campaign is already calling this trumponomics saying if he wins, you lose. >> thanks very much. let's bring this to matt
7:12 am
of a hole right now, but what he's trying today, an economic speech, biggest issue focused on jobs and trying to consolidate republicans with a lot of ideas that have been republican oroxy for a long time. >> yeah, mn, i think he's much better arguing on the ground of the economic situation in the country today instead of this argumenaround the short-circuited siation. if i were donald trump i would not get into an argument about it's not a ground i think is very good for him in this. he's much better off on this but in this speech he has to do the equivalent of jim furyk's 58 yesterday which was an amazing situation set the all-time record, in order to break this pattern, he's going to have to hit it out of the park. >> out of the park and one speech alone isn't going to do it. the question is, can he stay on message for a consistent series of days and weeks? at the same time, you're saying, you know, as we look at our poll, there is an eight-point lead for hillary clinton in our
7:13 am
you're paying attention to the four-way race. you think over time those -- the green party candidate and gary johnson,he libtarian candidate can actually have an impact. >> yeah, i think, unlike years past, you know, where the third or fourth party dwindle as they get closer to election day i actually think they're going to rise as we get closer to election day. i think because of the dissatisfaction as we see in the abc poll with both major party candidates and the fact they're nlik t bot distrusted m there an portunity for gary johnson and to a degree tein so grow the question, george, is can they get enough support to get in that debate, that first debate in september? i think it's uikely but that's really the threshold theneed to beat which is 15%. >>worked for ross perot back in 1996. -- 1992. finally, hillary clinton stepped in it again over the weekend with those new comments about the e-mail server. how does she hold on, consolidate this lead she now has? >> don't go on the air.
7:14 am
has done in the course of this is let donalump occupy the media landscape ich he consistently done and consistently made mistakes and as she's disappeared her poll numbers rise and that is actually pretty consistent over the last eight yea as she goes off the media platform her numbers rise so if i were her cede it to donald trump and let him do what he's doing. >> go to the states. local media strategy, matt dowd, thanks very much. >> never a dull moment. same thing in rio where america's olympians are hitting their stride tak fashion and showing no signs of slowing down. amy is live in rio with all the latest. good morning, amy. >> hey, good morning, lara. and george, team usa going for gold and, guess what, breaking records along the way with incredible performances in the pool and on the balance beam and this is the best part, they're just getting started. >> the united states will win gold! >> reporter: the u.s. men's swim team struck gold sunday night,

7:34 am
the investigation because this energizes not only the investigators, the entire police department, this energizes the community. this is a plea for justice. this is a plea for help so we may get more tips being called in. i think everyone that saw that really related to that family and thought i want justice for karina too and that's why people do these press conferences. they want people to feel their private grief publicly. sort of a call to action. >> you could not watch that and have your hearts -- i me, just the entire mifa. so now what' next? at's nt in the investigation? >> well, they don't have many leads but we know there may be some dna evidence and they're testing that now. remember, this was a particarly gruesome, gruesome crime. we're talking about someone that was dragged off of aogging path, possibly sexually assaulted. her teeth were broken, scrapes to her leg. talking about something, very, very gruesome so my sense is because of that press conferenc
7:35 am
i think perhaps if there's a dna hit that would be helpful because someone that commits a crime like this, this isot the first time. so let's hop this is someone that may be in a dna database. her mother and fhe said karina w such a fighter and she fought so there might be a lead right there. >> the might be. i also want to mention this, looking forward to aossible trial, this kind of press conference helps because every potential juror, you would imagine, now knows about this conference and will want justice for the family. so this is the very beginning of a long process for this family but hopefully justice for karina. >> absolutely. hopefully jtice for karina, sunny, thank you so much. >> o. thank you. we move on to new trouble for oscar pistorius. the former paralympic champ rushed to the hospital after injuring his wrists in prison where he is serving sometime for his girlfriend's murder and lama hasan has the latest.

7:40 am
welcome back. time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by stories. sunny hostin our senior legal analyst is bac and thi comes ou of chicago. this controversial police shooting, they released nine videf the shooting. but one crucial video is missing, that was on the officer who was on the scene. appaly it was not turned on. that's what the police are saying right now but that has led to some to charge a cover-up. >> that's right and everybody is lking about a cover-up because veos releed.
7:41 am
body cama from the body cam raf the officer thatly shot paul o'neal in the back and so this was supposed to be sort an air of transparency for the chicagoolice department plagued by charges of racism and now you have this pilot program with body cameras that should have been very helpful but now it doesn't seem like it's that helpful because a lot of the behavior, quite frankly, that was caught is very ocking, very disturbing. fatally wounded teenager. you see officers high-fiving after thehooting and you also see officers, quite frankly, ting to theody cameras and telling the other officers to turn them off. th has led not to the transparency into the good feelings in the community but, in fact to more distrust between the trust and the african-american community. >> right. quite the opposite so based on what you just said what those pes have shown, could the
7:42 am
>> i think it's very possible and it's clear it's against partdent policy to shoot at a car that's goiway from the police, 15 shots were at the car and i think it's also important to notice that -- note that he was st in the back a the supreme court has held that generallouan shoot a flg felon in t back. so looking at all of that, it is possible that we could see criminal charges stemming from this case. >> yeah, we'll follow this. sunny, thank you very much. >> you bet. got to move on to a major league timent. tough day for alex rodriguez. cruring his press conference, tearfully annncg he will play his last game on friday. take a look. >> i love this game. and i love this team. and today i'm saying good-bye to both. i never thought i could play for 22 years. at 18 i just wanted to make the
7:43 am
>> so a lot of questions given that he's so upset. was this his decision? we have t.j. holmes with us. good morning, teej. what do you make of sort of abrupt midseason retirement? >> well, it's what we've come to expect from alex rodriguez, right. in his career, nothing is ever simple and it's not this time at all either. now, we can call this a retirement. but or you can he wasng that might be the truth there. turns ouhe yanes essentially trying to move another dir andet younr, they want tet better and look too the future. when you have a 41-year-old on your books makin 20 plus million a year who's bat batting .200 he is not in t plan so they were probay going to hle at the end of this season anyway. but thatouldn't have beenery ceremonious and just would have parted ways but this way they brought an offer to him and said, we'll let you do this and ep your salary, and even the
