tv Good Morning America ABC June 29, 2014 8:00am-9:01am EDT
good morning, america. this morning, storm fury. a man struck by lightning at a stadium. blinding rain, making driving almost impossible. flying debris hitting cars like missiles. and when will the rivers stop rising? we'll tell you who is getting hit next by the wild weather. facing justice. the suspected mastermind of the attack that killed four americans in benghazi faces a judge in federal court. what happens now that he's finally on u.s. soil? caught on camera. brazen break-in. two women climb a narrow ledge to slip into the office of washington state's governor. even grabbing a seat at his conference table. the items looted. and how the suspects were finally caught. and flying saucer.
nasa style. a high-tech test of the gear that could eventually let us land on mars. >> you've got to be a little crazy sometimes if you want to do the crazy things. >> the amazing test flight right out of a sci-fi movie. and good morning, america. dan harris is taking some well-deserved time off this weekend. we're happy to have "nightline" co-anchor dan abrams here. the other dan at abc. >> it's great to be here with you. but it is another severe weather sunday. the heart of the country facing threats from hail and possible tornadoes. >> one of the scariest moments happening in ohio. where a man was struck by lightning at a major league soccer game. linzie janis is here with more on that and the devastating flooding and tornadoes. that have already cause sod much
damage. linzie? >> reporter: good morning, bianna and dan. the man who was struck by lightning went into cardiac arrest. had to be resuscitated. and is still in critical condition. it's been a weekend of wild weather. and for about seven states in the waterlogged midwest and plains, it's set to get even worse. in columbus, ohio, a shocked soccer stadium. after man was struck by a bolt of lightning. minnesota's pryor lake overflowing at a rate residents have never seen before. >> we've got a constant inch or two in the basement. >> reporter: neighbors banding together to place sandbags to try to protect their homes. the severe weather bringing blinding rain. take a look. this driver in st. paul, minnesota, barely making his way through the torrential downpour. in wisconsin, a downed tree setting power lines on fire.
and a tornado in texas that brought down this wall. >> and all of a sudden, the wind started picking up real bad. i heard a noise like a train real loud, you know, and, all of a sudden, everything started shaking. >> reporter: the twister also destroying roofs, cars, and shattering window. in tulsa, oklahoma, high winds gusting. shredding apart this building and sending debris flying. look out for the severe storms. even some potential tornado activity. there have be about a dozen twisters since friday. >> thank you, linzie. tracking all the weather has been a full-time job. the last few weeks. it's a busy day once again. meteorologist bill kelly is here from our columbus, ohio, station, wxys. these storms literally hitting close to home for you. >> yeah, crew stadium. i pass it every day going the work. it's a scary situation. we look back over the last 12 hours on the radar.
we had over 70 reports of severe weather across the country. we're focusing on you folks in central and western parts of tennessee. three to six inches of rain already this morning. widespread flooding. there will be more violent storms today. seven states under the elevated risk. the best chance for that, the moderate risk is central parts of iowa. northern parts of missouri. the potential for very large hail, damaging winds, and even the possibility of tornadoes. other thing we've been talking about, seemingly for weeks and weeks and weeks is the rainfall. many of you have had at or near record rain for the month of june. you'll add more to the bucket today. coming up, the potential for tropical weather as well. dan? >> all right, bill, thanks very much. now to a rare saturday federal court session in washington where the suspected leader of the embassy attack in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans pleaded not guilty. he left the courthouse under heavy security. let's get to pierre thomas. pierre, he was nabbed in libya and now on u.s. soil.
>> reporter: good morning, dan. after the dramatic capture in libya two weeks ago, ahmed abu khattala has been on a slow boat ride. he's undergone two interrogations. asked questions about his organization. a week ago, he was read his rights by the fbi. we're told he's cooperated. offering some details but never admitting guilt. >> what is next? >> reporter: he'll be treated like a common drug dealer. he'll face the pressure of the government in terms of proving their case in open court. and the pressure of a death sentence. he'll have to decide whether he's going to plead guilty or face trial. let's bring in george, who is hosting "this week." great to see you. you sat down with the president. you talked about terror in the middle east. >> the president conceded it's a growing threat.
he said this group, now acting in syria and iraq, is gaining strength. the militants have become battle-hardened. we know that they want to attack the united states. they've developed new kinds of explosives. that's led to increased anxiety, especially around the july 4th holiday. >> you're looking at new developments on the border crisis as well. >> breaking news from the white house. a surge of children from central america across our border. created a real humanitarian crisis. the white house is going to ask congress for $2 billion in emergency funding to deal with this crisis right now. and increased powers to allow them to deport these children more quickly back to their home countries. this is going to cause some trouble for the president on immigration reform. he's getting pressed by immigration reform advocates to slow the deportation process of those immigrants already here. he's caught in a bit of a vise right now. >> a sensitive topic given that we're talking about children. it was rare to see the president step out and tell the chunts to
keep their children out of the u.s. borders. >> i asked him directly. he said don't send your children here. it's not a safe journey. if they make it, they'll be sent back. it was a clear message from the president followed on with this new request for funding today. >> a big top wick the elections coming up. thank you, george. be sure to join george later on abc's "this week." meantime, let's get this week's other top stories. we begin with pope francis making a public appearance at the vatican this morning. the pope celebrated mass at st. peter's basilica. this is following concerns about his health after he canceled an appearance at a rome hospital. on friday. the vatican saying only then that he was suddenly indisposed. at today's event, he appeared tired and spoke softly but was later seen hugging and talking to bishops. firefighters out west are battling two separate wildfires this morning. the san juan fire, already burned over 5,000 acres.
nearby communities, most of them summer homes, are under mandatory evacuation orders. no structures have been burned so far. and no reports of injuries so far. and in colorado. the so-called eight-mile fire is still 0% contained. new reports of fighting in the iraqi city of tikrit north of baghdad. government security forces began an attack on the city on saturday. it was captured by militant sunni forces earlier this month. security officials claim that government troops reached the outskirts of tikrit but residents there reported that militants from isis are still in control of the city as of night fall on saturday. and meanwhile, a south korean news agency has reported that north korea's test-fired missiles. they were reportedly fired into the country's eastern waters early sunday. this comes just days after in the countries say they test-fired three newly developed three precision-guided missiles. nba star lebron james is
being joined in free agency by some of his miami heat teammates. dwyane wade said saturday he'll opt out of the remainder of his contract and udonis haslem. as all-star chris bosh is expected to make the same move before monday's deadline. all of those moves could give the heat increased payroll abili flexibility to potentially re-sign them all. and now, on -- from our -- you gotta check this out file. a bizarre sight. from north carolina. yep. you're seeing that. a man -- the car is on interstate 77 with a guy clinging to the outside of the trunk. authorities say they got several calls about this. by the time they responded, the car, oddly enough, was gone. witnesses said the man eventually broke the rear window and climbed back inside. must have been an interesting conversation inside that car. the investigation is ongoing. finally, it's a weird one. >> i'm sorry, that was. >> no doubt prince harry has gotten his share of marriage proposals.
this one could be a first. an offer from a middleton. harry was this chile at the start of his three-day tour when chilean tv reporter bernardina middleton proposed. harry laughed it off. that's not exactly a no. later in the visit, he visited the city of valparaiso, which was hit by a devastating wildfire he fixed one family's tv just in time to watch the brazil-chile world match. you say, hey, can you fix my tv? >> why not. >> and he did. multitalented. >> jack of all trades. >> thanks, ron. now caught on camera. a daring duo, two women breaking into in the washington governor's office and making off with some rather interesting items. the question is, how were they able to make like cat women with no one noticing them? here's clayton sandell. >> reporter: two burglars busted on camera.
brazenly prowling through a bold target, the office of washington state governor jay insley. surveillance video shows two women they identify as 22-year-old emily hunsicker and 29-year-old rachel camilla parking near the capitol building june 15th. they wait outside as people pass by. then, climb on narrow ledge and make their way in through a window. once inside, the two allegedly spend ten minutes going from room to room, signature at the governor's conference table and allegedly looting the office. taking a native american blanket and mask. a bolt of wine. even a framed picture of the governor and magic johnson. authorities say the women were captured by no fewer than ten security cameras. yet police never saw the women
come in, never saw them throwing loot out the window. or making their escape. it wasn't until the next day that anyone even realized there had been major security breach. >> it should tell the state of washington, look, we have to tighten up security. this could have turned bad for us. fortunately, it ate peers to be two women that were just sort of out for a lark. and not there to actually do any harm to anyone. >> reporter: police later arrested both women. allegedly finding a hat taken during the break-in and other items in hunsicker's car, after she was pulled over for speeding. neither woman returned our phone calls. both are facing burglary charges and expected to enter a plea next month. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> that is one bizarre story. >> taking the wine? >> a blanket, wine. >> and then speeding later. >> we're waiting for them to call clayton back. >> okay. now to the trial of blade runner oscar pistorius. which is finally set to resume tomorrow, six weeks after the judge ordered he undergo mental health tests.
that could have a major impact on the case. lama hasan has details from south africa. >> reporter: good morning to you, dan. in may, the trial was all set to wind down. then the shocking turn. as his mental and emotional health began being questioned in court. the judge ordering pistorius to have mental health checks. with these results set to come out, it's now make or break time in the case. does oscar pistorius know right from wrong? is he fit to stand trial? >> i'm sorry, milady, i'm getting confused. >> reporter: and the latest twist in his dramatic murder case. the olympic athlete's set to hear the results of his psychiatric evaluation monday morning. last month, the judge ordering the evaluation. a defense witness was saying he suffered from generalized anxiety order. >> when exposed to a threat, mr. pistorius is more likely to respond with a fight response than a flight response. >> reporter: perhaps explaining
why he fired his gun. that fateful night, killing his girlfriend, model reeva steenkamp. >> i did not fire at reeva. >> reporter: the prosecutor known as the bull tearier, going on the attack. >> if there had been another explanation, it was just lying. >> reporter: this trial, which lasted much longer than expected has witnesses describing in chilling details the night of steenkamp's death. >> it was blood-curdling. it was something that leaves you cold. >> reporter: and the olympic athlete grilled on the stand. >> mr. pistorius, your version is a lie. >> reporter: breaking down repeatedly. >> she wasn't breathing. >> reporter: now a team of psychiatrists and one psychologist are hoping to answer these critical questions. what was his state of mind when he killed steenkamp? the results could turn out to be a game-changer. while no one knows which direction this trial will go. but what we do know is that if
the team of doctors agrees with dr. vorster this will help his case. dan and bianna? >> look, the bottom line here is that, i don't think there's any way that the judge is going to accept a finding that says that he can't understand right from wrong. i don't think the psychologists are going to say that. the question is, will they say he's got some psychological issues? if they were to do that, that would only impact sentencing, not the actual trial. the more likely scenario is the group of psychologists are going to say that there's nothing. that psychologically, that should impact this case. we shall see. >> and the trial lasted a lot longer than initially expected. >> and another delay because one of the psychologists had a heart attack. they had to delay the results for two weeks. >> we know you'll be following this closely this week. >> absolutely. yeah. we're going to switch gears now and turn to "gma" at the world cup.
it's heating up. exciting action kicking off the knockout round with the countdown to the usa's big win or go home match on tuesday. julie foudy is in rio right now. everyone in the office was glued to the television for the brazil versus chile match. >> oh, it was crazy, bianna. and it was the first game of the knockout round. you can imagine the pressure on the host country to win. and the entire nation watched, cheered with bated breath. ah, the pressure of hosting a world cup. all of brazil standing arm in arm, willing their team on versus chile in the first game of the knockout round. brazilian fans so worried at one point in in the game, they borrowed from the u.s. song book, chanting in portuguese, i believe, throughout the stadium. surviving the lows.
and then the highs of a penalty kick victory. >> we need to win. >> reporter: as brazil celebrates, team usa trains. on tuesday, they'll face a very young, talented belgian team. >> they're a force to be reckoned with in the attacking. i think they're going to be a good matchup. >> reporter: star striker jozy altidore is back jogging. after injuring his hamstring but is still listed as uncertain. this u.s. team knows all too well the dangers of this dark horse belgian team, including the highly visible marouane fellaini of manchester united. his soccer skills gaining almost as much attention as his hair. >> fellaini! >> reporter: his hair has earned
him comparisons to screech from "saved by the bell." the u.s. team says they're ecstatic to get out of the group of death. their mood is interesting. they said, look, we're ecstatic. but we're not content. this is the first time they've gotten out of in the group stage in consecutive world cups. >> they're hungry. they're focused. yesterday, i have to tell you, ron and dan indulged sara and me by swooning over the male players. it's time to pay back because we're hearing brazil's supermodel gisele bundchen will be part of the festivities. right? >> reporter: yes, that was all the buzz yesterday. she's going to, at first, it was thought she was actually going to present the final world cup trophy to the captain of the winning team. quickly, fifa said, no, no, no. gisele is not going to be presenting the trophy. that goes to the two presidents. the president of the host nation and the president of fifa. she'll be carrying out the trophy with former world cup champion carlos puillos. >> i don't think the players would mind having gisele. >> if the u.s. wins, does
screech show up? >> that's a good question. you'll have to investigate. that big team usa round of 16 match is tuesday afternoon on espn. which has two more big games on tap today starting at 11:30 eastern. now for something straight out of a sci-fi movie. scientists at nasa playing with a flying saucer. >> you heard right. it's all to test out equipment that may one day help us land on mars. sara is here with more on the experiment. the testing was in hawaii. we couldn't send you there? >> no, hello. >> i'm angry for you. >> i'll give you three letters. u-f-o. you may have seen one if you were anywhere near hawaii. we can enjoy the mystery of it all. the dare devil scientists at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory are at it again. >> you have to be a little crazy sometime ifs you want to do the crazy things. >> reporter: as part of in the space agency's mission to mars,
a team of scientists took their latest cutting edge spacecraft for a test drive on saturday. >> you want to go to mars, you want to go big? you have to test big here. >> reporter: it's called the ldsd. low density supersonic accelerator. if you ask the internet, the new ride to the red planet looks suspiciously familiar. even the brainiac rebels of the jet propulsion laboratory acknowledged the ldsd borrows more than just a little from hollywood's favorite unidentified flying object. but what else can you expect from the team whose seven minutes of terror mars rover landing was infamously fronted by a former elvis look-a-like and a mohawk-sporting mission commander. >> we're safe on mars. >> reporter: it takes us one step closer to a mission to mars with humans. >> pretty cool.
>> i loved the cartoons in the piece. >> a ufo hearkens that kind of thing. >> brings back memories of childhood. >> how do you avoid "the jetsons." back to bill kelly from our columbus station. >> good morning, everybody. we're going to start out with a tropical system. or the potential for some tropical weather. it's that time of year. the national hurricane center giving this a 60% chance over the next five days to develop into a named storm. if you're going to florida, georgia, south carolina, for the upcoming fourth of july weekend, know that that could be a potential problem. it would be arthur if it becomes named. let's go to myrtle beach. the water temperature, 82. a good beach day. there is the possibility of a few showers here and there. still comfortable in the northeast. we're calling this a delicious day. i don't think that's overstated. temperatures in the 80s and low humidity. water temperatures into the 60s and 70s. southwest, very hot. phoenix, 109 today. 31st day in a row of
temperatures above 100. denver, 94, that would tie the warmest temperature you have had this year. do not get used to that. we have a major cooldown coming up. that's a look at the national picture. >> reporter: i'm meteorologist chris sowers with this accuweather update. storm tracker 6 live double scan crystal clear this morning, the skies are crystal clear. we'll see a decent amount of sun, clouds mixing in from time to time, temperatures on the warm side, humidity levels stay low. 88 degrees today. 88 tomorrow. tuesday wednesday, thursday, hazy, hot and humid temperatures in time >> as we talked about earlier, we have the severe weather potential as well in seven states. >> i'm still focused on the delicious day. bill, thank you.

ready to throw in the towel. >> i hired a nanny. and she refuses to leave. >> reporter: three weeks after the family fired her and begged her to leave. >> let's just read the e-mail. >> reporter: late saturday night, diane stretton called the family's attorney and offered to move out of their upland, california, home, but only under her conditions. >> she said she could be out by july 4th. >> oh, no, no, no. >> we'll be out of town. then she -- if no one is here she could do a forced lockout on us. >> reporter: this morning, it's unclear if either side will budge. meanwhile, the nanny's belongings are still behind this bedroom door. >> this is now, by court, by law, this is her domain. >> reporter: this all started in march, when the family hired her. she was at first great with their three kids then complained of health problems and spent all day locked in her room. when you asked her to leave, what did she say to you? >> she smiles and shuts the door
at me. >> reporter: which is what she did to station kcbs wednesday night when the father served her with court papers. >> they've asked you to leave. why won't you leave? >> reporter: she wouldn't talk to us either. but in court, she's argued she's a tenant, with all the legal protections that come with it. >> i think that she actually spends her day trying to ruin people's lives. misery loves company. >> reporter: now she says that because the family has since learned this nanny apparently really likes to sue people. her name is on dozens of civil lawsuits all across southern california. the family thinks she does this for a living. in this case, we should point out, stretton is acting as her own attorney. she still has not commented to us. we want to make that crystal clear just in case she decides to sue us, too. >> get our lawyers in line. >> the problem is, it takes
awhile, um, to evict someone. i mean, because she was invited into the home. that was part of the deal initially. the wheels of justice don't move that quickly. she's clearly using that to her advantage. >> makes me want to go home and give my babysitter a big hug and a kiss. someone else i wouldn't mind giving a hug to is ron claiborne. >> hi, everybody. hi, bianna, dan, sara. we begin with the wild weather across much of the country. in minnesota, heavy and blinding rain adding to the flooding that's devastated that state for days. and in texas and oklahoma, damaging winds september debris flying and damaging roof tops and cars. and a suspected leader of the 2012 attack in benghazi that killed four americans, including the american ambassador appeared in court in washington, d.c. on saturday. ahmed abu khattala pled not guilty. before a federal judge. he was captured two weeks ago by american commandos in libya. security in the courtroom was very, very heavy. a huge wimbledon upset. five-time champion and
