7:03 am
and the residue what kind of missile might have hit that aircraft so i think it's much more important to get to the site, to find the aircraft, rather than search so hard for the black boxes. >> and why it's so important to have an independent investigation because that could presumably tell you whether it was a system more likely to be inside ukrainian territory or over in russian territory. >> exactly. it's just like a crime scene vision. you don't want anybody to touch it. you want it pristine. you don't want anything moved. you have to preserve the evidence in the way that it appears when the aircraft came down or it could be contaminated and the improper conclusions could be drawn. >> okay, steve ganyard. thanks very much. >> now to lara. who has information about some of the people that were on that plane. lara. >> yeah, we do, robin. in all 298 people were on board flight 17. they were from at least nine fountries nfth kua cioarpiee r boyfrief,rlijpoyote

7:14 am
the phone just a few moments ago. john, i know you're back there today. you were also there yesterday shortly after all of this happened. how are the two scenes different from day to day? >> reporter: i'm actually -- the rain is coming down pretty good and because of separatists checkposts and the condition of the roads we haven't been able to reach the main crash site, but we're about 12 kilometers away right now, and we just stumbled upon a -- it looks like the inside of a -- one of the baggage containers that they would put inside of the aircraft. so i mean to find that out here, there are no rebels out here. there's no ukrainian emergency services. it -- you can actually see a trail of debris across this mown wheat field right now. it's -- i mean, to see this way out here in the middle of nowhere really is pretty shocking. >> i can only imagine so you're
7:15 am
saying there appears to be no one in charge of anything right now. >> reporter: no, there's a guy from a local -- from a village nearby kind of walking on the edge of this wheat field. i haven't heard anybody report about this, so i think that this really shows that it's going to take quite some time for them to gather together the pieces of wreckage. i do know that the rebels are -- have spent the entire day out in the fields around the main wreckage site, around the main crash site looking for bodies, so this is going to take some time. particularly considering the political and security situation right now. >> it's of great concern that this site is not secure at all because as you're describing thy sanuyeitht bin s o j goi p lge

7:29 am
from abc news live in times square, this is "good morning america." and this friday morning we're covering two major breaking news stories beginning, of course, with that disaster in the sky, the latest from the site where the plane went down and what we are learning just ahead and the latest also from the middle east. >> you know, whenever we have disasters like this we want to talk about how parents can talk to their kids about all these graphic images we're seeing not only on television but also on social media so we have a parenting expert with very good advice. then we turn our attention to summer and pesky mosquitoes. we're putting a new bug spray to the test that 3r078ss to protect you without the potentially dangerous chemical deet. we'll see how well it works. as the temperatures rise so do our energy bills and we'll show you how to cut the cost of
7:30 am
running your ac in half in some cases. we do have a party in the park this morning. look at all those people out there. zedd is here live for our concert in the park and -- >> it's just like when we had afro jack, these deejays are just a hit and it's a full-on dance party out there in the park so let's get right to that disaster in the air, breaking new details this morning on the downing of malaysia air flight 17. all 298 people as you know on board killed. we'll go back to abc's terry moran in kiev and he has the very latest for us. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. fast-breaking developments on this story this morning. the team of international investigators en route to the crash scene, there are now questions about whether the rebels who control that scene will allow them access to it and the rebels are changing their story. yesterday they said they had the black boxes, they'd found those.
7:31 am
the ukrainian president is pointing the finger directly at the separatists and saying this is not a disaster or an accident, it's an act of terrorism but those rebels are saying it was ukrainian forces who shot down the plane and the russian side in rebel-held eastern ukraine and this, the moment of impact. the huge boeing 777 slamming into the ground sending up plumes of smoke and those white streak, pieces of the plane raining down. it was 4:20 p.m. local time. traveling at 33,000 feet crossing over war-torn ukraine, the plane is apparently struck by a surface-to-air missile. it loses contact with ground control some 30 miles from the russian border crashing into rebel-held territory. authorities say no distress call came from the pilot. our reporter john wendle was on the scene amid the carnage. >> reporter: we found part of the tail fuselage. there is a body next to it. it is a very grim scene that
7:32 am
we're seeing here. >> reporter: the bodies rained down from the sky, witnesses said. passports, boarding passes, belongings falling with them. relics of 298 lives including three newborns. as the wreckage smoldered back in the u.s. talk quickly turned to terrorism. >> shot down, not an accident. blown out of the sky. >> reporter: the question this morning, who fired that missile? if that's in fact what brought down the plane. thedisaster or an accident, it'n act of terrorism. but those rebels are saying it was ukrainian forces who shot down the plane and the russian president, vladimir putin, is saying that the ukrainian government is responsible. this atrocity being sucked into the war of words that is raging here alongside the civil war in ukraine. robin. >> still becomes a very fluid situation, this new information continues to come in. we turn to that other major story. israel launching a ground offensive into gaza claiming it
7:33 am
destroyed dozens of hamasing its and warning this is just the beginning. abc's alex marquardt is in gaza city with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george. israel says thousands of troops have participated in the ground incursion which so far has been limited to the outer edges of gaza. but israel's prime minister this morning warned that he may soon significantly expand the operation. a bright blow lit up israel as it pummeled the strip overnight then the order was given for the ground incursion. columns of tanks and troops moving into gaza just before midnight. their primary mission, to destroy hamas' sophisticated network of tunnels used to carry out attacks on israel that the aerial campaign couldn't find. so far at least five tunnels have been uncovered but now israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has ordered his forces to be ready to broaden the ground operation. today, we visited a family whose home was hit this morning amid
7:34 am
some of the heaviest israeli bombing yet. the family here tells us they came to this house evacuating from another area thinking it would be safer. they were taking refuge right here during the bombing when a tank shell burst through the wall killing three including two children. since israel launched the ground operation, the death toll has climbed past 260 palestinians including almost 60 children. on the israeli side, two have now died. one israeli soldier killed overnight. israel's military said just a short time ago that 17 militants have been killed in this operation so far and more than 13 captured. any talk of a cease-fire for now has evaporated. we can hearing inning fire and outgoing rockets towards israel. hamas saying israel will pay a heavy price. george. >> alex, thanks very much. to amy with today's other top stories. state of emergencyow on the flamesffnhe s

we've been covering the plane crash and we know that means a lot of kids will be exposed to difficult images on 5-alarm or social media so wanted to bring in dr. robyn silverman for guidance and let's start out with older kid, especially, we can turn off the tv but they're on twitter and facebook. what do you do about it? >> right, to think that we can turn off the tv and the kids are not going to see it means we're in the dark. so make sure your teen knows if you're curious and you're seeking out the images or you see images that are disturbing or concerning, please come to me. understand that when you come to me we can sit down and talk about it. i can answer questions and we can also go to credible news
7:41 am
stations and find out what's really happening. >> so that's with the older set of the i keep thinking at your . george's daughter has been in the studio with all morning long and sometimes she comes from time to time and think about that age group. how do you talk to them. >> i have a 4-year-old and 5-year-old so that's really poignant for me, as well. young children, we need to think of three things. the first is the words we choose. they need to be age appropriate. they need to be short and sweet and we need to answer the questions. make sure you're underscoring safety. number two, your voice. make sure it's calm. kids are going to react to your reaction so make sure that you're not echoing the emotion of the story in the same way you would with a friend and finally, be there for them. understand that these kids need to know that after the conversation closes, the door remains open for future conversations. >> only give them as much information as they want. answer the question and keep
7:42 am
moving. >> you're not talking to a friend. you're talking to a young child. >> so hard to explain it. i mean, there is no explanation that a 9-year-old, i think of my daughter kate or my son can wrap their heads around. i know you're telling us what to do. it's how to find the right words is what causes me anxiety. >> some children are going to be really anxious and understand that if they're extremely anxious make sure to bring those words down, answer the questions just as they ask them. yes, the plane went down. yes, there are people who died. yes, we are doing everything we can, the adults who are in charge, are doing everything they canto make sure that they address the problem. >> what about limiting social media. just keeping them off their devices because there are so many other images that show up that we would never want them to see. >> you know your child best. so if you know your child is prone to those nightmares, you know your child gets extremely anxious, tell them, this is for your own good but understand
7:43 am
it's very hard to limit media. >> oh, i know. you don't have to tell me that. >> make sure they're media savvy and you are there for them to help them understand what's really going on. >> final thing here, robyn, about flying. i was at l.a.x. seems like a couple of hours ago. there were some anxious parents with their children. what do you say if your child is anxious now about flying. >> right, they need to know this kind of incident is extremely rare, that this is not the typical and that everybody is doing what they can to keep everyone as safe as possible. if your child needs more information, show them how planes work, have them talk to a pilot friend. understand that you are there for them, you love them and everybody is doing what they can to make sure those children are safe. >> good advice there. >> as always. thank you, robyn. out to ginger in central park with the weather. >> a big tone shift. i do want to bring you right into one of the most energetic crowds i have ever seen.
7:44 am
look at this thing. rhyme height here. you can see me. they've got their hands up and i'm telling you they were listening to zedd and this is only the beginning, my friends. let's go ahead and get to the forecast because we do need to share a couple of pretty serious headlines. wildfires, not any relief in weather in washington state. there are dozens of large wildfires burning throughout the west and southwest and you can see palm springs, 103. 106 for las vegas. 96, salt lake city, i'll leave you with a look from coast to coast.. >> reporter: thanks, ginger, happy friday, i'm meteorologist karen rogers with your accuweather update. 70 degrees we're heading up to 85. lots of sunshine, a beautiful day. tomorrow lots of clouds, high of 83. some sunshine on saturday, maybe a bit more on sunday. sunshine mixing with the clouds, high of 84. on monday, a bit more humid we get up to 87. tuesday, very warm. 89. wednesday, and thursday, into

7:46 am
>> you want to look for products that contain 15% to 30% deet. >> reporter: they offer up another type, a synthetic compound called picaridin. >> its active ingredient is related to molecules found in plants of the pepper family. >> reporter: to see how the different repellants work, scott caroll, an and to mol gist at the university of california-davis prepares a mosquito box for me. >> okay, i'm going in. first i put my arm in the box with mosquitoes who haven't eaten in 18 hours and i'm wearing no repellant. >> 19, 20, ten seconds. can i stop. over 30 mosquitoes landed on me. next dr. caroll puts a deet spray on me and here goes. oh, they're interested. but they're not landing. well, i can feel them touching me and then they go away. >> reporter: not one bite with deet. now for the picaridin spray.
7:47 am
one bite, one lurker. that girl is chowing. she's staying there for the long haul. >> and the second one is biting too. >> oh, man. >> reporter: in ten minutes i receive two bites wearing the picarid. n spray. >> that would be a low percentage, 1% biting you. >> reporter: it rated the spray effective for seven hour, just an hour less than the deet sprays. and picaridin got much better results than true botanicals so if you're trying to wave off those pesky skeeters without deet, picaridin may be your best bet. for abc news, becky worley, abc news. >> i'm itchy now. >> i can't believe she did that. thank you for taking one for the team. a beauty procedure to bring back your brows. people who have been a bit overzealous when republicaning eyebrows are turning to transplants to get their natural look back. abc's abbie boudreau checks it
7:48 am
out. >> reporter: bold brows are back. that classic audrey hepburn look framing the faces of a-lister like jennifer connelly, mary-kate and ashley olsen but after years of overplucking, getting those beautiful brows can be nearly impossible. that's why more women are turning to eyebrow transplants. ashley wilkins began plucking when she was just 12 years old. >> they never grew back and the more i would pluck and i would try to grow them out and all i would get was a few stray hairs. >> reporter: same story for grace lee who overplucked and even shaved her brows for years. did it affect your confidence? >> definitely. i just didn't feel confident when i went outside. i always needed to like draw my eyebrows which took about 15, 20 minutes. >> reporter: both women turning to dr. mark caoer in los angeles to transform their eyebrows with transplants. >> some people just overpluck their eyebrows and if you overpluck them they may not grow back. another cause is genetically
7:49 am
weak eyebrows. >> reporter: a six to eight hour procedure where a strip of your own scalp is transferred one follicle at a time to create a new set of eyebrows. >> we create the desired shape and use a needle half a millimeter in diameter. >> reporter: these are the dramatic before and after photos for ashley and grace. both women now with the eyebrows they've always wanted. >> it just looks beautiful like it just really boosts my confidence level. >> reporter: the procedure costs upwards of $7,000 and dr. dauer says it can take a year to get your full results. no more plucking. >> no more plucking. >> i hope anyone out there who is looking to have the transplants done, just thinks it's a great decision and moves forward with it because they'll never look back. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> i went from doing this, now going, ow, ow. >> the whole body. >> painful. we'll switch gears then. >> i like that. base for those big jumps in
