so far in the zimmerman trial. jurors got to hear him describing what happened that night. will he the day immediately after the incident before he had a lawyer so what do you think the jury thought about it? we'll break it down with our team of analysts, we have sunny hostin, vinnie politan, danny dr evallos and of course nancy grace. >> a powerful moment, two american presidents half a world away meeting in africa to remember the u.s. citizens who lost their lives in an attack 15 years ago. we'll go there live and much more from cnn's exclusive interview with former president george w. bush. a teen has been in jail for five months after he made a joke about a school shooting online. he was explicit that it was a joke so why is he still in jail? his father is live and will discuss that. >> interesting conversation kate will have, something's wrong, when does it become a crime.
3:01 am
>> when does a joke cross a line. let's start with a major new development, nsa leaker edward snowden has withdrawn his request for asylum in russia after president vladimir putin put a surprising condition on snowden, stop leaking information harmful to the u.s.. snowden is bashing the obama administration. cnn's phil black is live in moscow with more. good morning, phil. >> reporter: good morning, chris. there was that one condition put there by russian president vladimir putin and as you've mentioned, snowden was not prepared to contemplate it at all, but applying for application in russia was just one stage of a big plan to widen his search to try and find a country that would protect him. in all, he has now applied to 19 governments around the world and he must continue sitting in that moscow airport waiting for a response. edward snowden has no eminent or
3:02 am
obvious option for escaping the moscow airport he arrived at more than a week ago. in a statement he says he is unbound in his convictions. the obama administration is afraid of you, afraid of an informed angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised and it should be. snowden with help from wikileaks formally asked 19 more countries for asylum, in addition to his early applications to ecuador and iceland he accuses the united states of using fear and political aggression to block those requests. now it is being reported after promising not to do so the president has ordered his vice president to pressure the leaders of nations from which i have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions. russia was among the countries but he withdrew that after president vladimir putin said it's not possible as long as snowden continues leaking secret u.s. information. putin said if snowden wishes to stay in russia he must "stop his
3:03 am
work in harming our american partners." the electronics capabilities snowden revealed to the world were first implemented during the administration of george w. bush. president bush told cnn's robyn kur know snowden has compromised that program and the united states. >> you know, he damaged the country. the obama administration will deal with it. >> reporter: do you think it's possible for one man to really damage the security of the nation? >> i think he damaged the security of the country. >> most of the countries that edward snowden has now applied to asylum from are european, including france and germany, two countries which in recent days have been angry with the united states because of revelations they were targeted by electronic surveillance program. the key question is are they angry enough to help the man who told the world about that program's capabilities. >> thank you very much. now to egypt on the edge, president obama calling president mohamed morsi asking
3:04 am
him to respond to his people's demands. protesters calling on morsi to step down or they'll march on the palace and egypt's military giving him an ultimatum, resolve the dispute wednesday or they'll step in and restore order. reza, the 48-hour countdown is taking down. >> reporter: egypt bracing it self for a dramatic change. all sorts of signs egypt is about to push the reset button on the 2011 revolution. two and a half years ago they booted out mubarak. the moderates and liberals didn't like it, they said morsi was hijacking the revolution with an islamist agenda. indications are they're close to getting their wish, the military coming out with an ultimatum by

in the george zimmerman yesterday the jury heard zimmerman's words for the own time as prosecutors played his interviews in his report. they focused on inconsistencies. the question is did the gamble pay off? cnn's george howell is live in sanford, florida, this morning. geor george, good morning. >> reporter: chris, good morning. we hear more from chris serino and we'll likely hear more from george zimmerman telling his version of the events without having to open his mouth in court. the first investigator to interview george zimmerman took the stand on day six of the trial, dooris singleton explained the process. >> it was recorded on a voice recorder that they gave us. >> reporter: prosecutors played the tape, the jury listened closely. >> there's been a few times
3:18 am
where i've seen a suspicious person in the neighborhood we call the police non-emergency line and these guys always get away. >> reporter: a key witness for the state, singleton told the jury zimmerman agreed to be interviewed without an attorney present. he didn't realize trayvon martin died from the shooting until she told him. she said zimmerman dropped his head to the table. >> did he have any evidence that he was angry with trayvon martin? >> no. >> that he had hatred for him. >> no. >> spite ill will? >> no. >> that he had anything that would suggest to you some type of bad attitude towards trayvon martin? >> no. >> rather he seemed to be affected by the fact that he realized that trayvon martin had passed? >> he seemed affected by that. >> reporter: one day after the shooting and george zimmerman returned to this neighborhood
3:19 am
with lead investigator chris serino to do a video re-enactment. serino later conducted a more aggressive interview, challenging zimmerman on some points. for instance, in the first statement, zimmerman talked about trayvon martin jumping out of bushes to ambush him. in the re-enactment he didn't mention that, but in court, serino's final analysis -- >> did you notice anything to bring to the jury's attention today that caused you that concern? >> no, not that i can articulate, no, sir. >> reporter: there was also the testimony from dr. nakasone, an fbi audio analyst for the defense who was called to the stand by prosecutors, his focus the 911 call where you can hear screaming in the background. he told jurors it's not possible to determine age or analyze this tape through science dr. nakasone left one possibility wide open. >> for this particular case,
3:20 am
best approach would be from the voice recognition by the individual who have heard him in his whole life. >> reporter: that testimony from dr. nakasone very important because it opens the door for them to have a laywitness for a member of trayvon martin's family to say that is the voice of my son on that 911 audio where we hear screaming, a very important key point for the prosecution, kate. >> one we'll be watching very closely as we head into another day in the courtroom. thanks so much. i bring in cnn legal analyst and former federal prosecutor sunny hostin. u've been watching this from morning, noon to night, sunny. yesterday -- you poor thing or thank you for doing it, though. my question i guess is, so yesterday we heard george zimmerman's voice for the first
3:21 am
time. do you think those police interviews shed any new light for the jury on who was the main aggressor? because that is one of the key questions as george zimmerman is facing a second-degree murder. >> i do. we heard several statements from zimmerman. he was consistent in describing the struggle, he was inconsistent in describing how the struggle began and that's what the prosecution needs to get out, who was the initial aggressor, who started it. he was pressed by both investigators. he was pressed by serino. he was pressed by singleton and asked, well you told me you got out of the car just to kind of figure out where you were, figure out what the address was. kate, we learned there are only three streets at the retreat at twin lakes so to suggest that the neighborhood watchperson didn't know which street he was on one out of three streets was unusual. they also pressed him on whether or not he was really following
3:22 am
trayvon martin but what he said instead was well i was just going in the same direction and so when you look at that, i think that it was a good day for the prosecution in terms of just trying to corroborate what rachel jeantel said trayvon martin was being pursued by george zimmerman. >> sunny the prosecution focused on inconsistencies yesterday. the defense used the cross-examination with the police officers to kind of work towards their strategy trying to prove that george zimmerman didn't have any ill will, that he wasn't spiteful or angry towards trayvon martin. do you think the defense made some ground there as well yesterday? >> absolutely. absolutely, and i have to tell you in all my years of prosecuting cases and observing cases and covering cases i have never seen police officers testify really as to the good character of a defendant. they basically bolstered this defendant. they said they didn't find ill will and they even said they
3:23 am
felt him to be truthful. i wonder what really was going on there, on the witness stand, what sort of dynamic was going on because we know the conford police department this case was ripped from them so many are suggesting maybe it was a case of payback with this prosecution and so it was very, very strange to see police officers testify in a sense for the defense. >> everyone assumes with this case, it is moving rapidly, it's either a second-degree murder conviction or nothing, but that's not necessarily true, right? >> that's exactly right. certainly he's been charged with second-degree murder and the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove second-degree murder, but after all of the evidence that is in, it's quite possible that the attorneys agree or the prosecution suggests a lesser included charge which would be manslaughter. manslaughter much easier in my
3:24 am
view to prove than second-degree murder because you don't have to prove state of mind, you don't have to prove what was in george zimmerman's mind. i suspect that when this case goes to the jury they won't only be looking at second-degree murder, they'll be looking at manslaughter. >> we're starting to hear more and more talk of manslaughter. sunny hostin thanks for waking up early. we'll talk to you soon. >> thanks, kate. >> another big day in court. it is money time, poppy harlow in for christine romans, all the business news we need to know and pop you know the rule, you can only do this if you have good news. >> good news, good news! if you're invested in the markets, thanks, chris, pointing higher. the dow, s&p 500 closed higher four out of the past five sessions. the major indices finishing across with gains. nasdaq almost a 1% gain on the day. the man who may have you constantly checking your iphone for your virtual farm, we're

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke.

there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver

welcome back to nld nd everybody. spirit airlines flight had to make a nose dive over michigan sunday night to avoid a collision with a sky diving plane. the faa is investigating this latest mishap in a string of recent near misses at major u.s. airports and now the ntsb making recommdations to avoid similar
3:39 am
disasters. rene marsh is in our washington bureau with details. what is the ntsb recommending? >> after several near sligss in the sky the national transportation safety board is making recommendations to the faa. the recommendations are based on five near collisions in recent years. three in las vegas, one in new york city and one in charlotte. in all cases, planes were coming in for a landing and for various reasons, they had to aboard landing, initiating what's called a go around, and that means exactly what it sounds like, where the pilot essentially goes around and takes a second try at landing. the problem in all of these cases, those planes flew right in the flight path of other planes taking off from other runways. here's one example from jfk last july an american airlines 737 was coming in for a landing, that's the blue you see there and the pilot needed to execute what's called that go around so
3:40 am
they circled the airport and while doing that the plane got dangerous close to a pinnacle airlines jet the plane in the red taking off from another runway. the ntsb says that the faa needs to change the way they clear planes for landing and make sure there's enough space between those planes and situations like those. >> kind of a no-brainer. we know there are lots of flights, renay, but this is unacceptable. renay marsh, thank you very much. it's time for a quick check of news around the world. european leaders are upset about allegations that the u.s. may be spying on them. president obama countered saying every nation collects similar intelligence. cnn's fred plit again eitgen is. >> reporter: european union offices were tapped and internet

4:19 am
4:20 am
welcome back to "new day." a stunning day in the trial of george zimmerman. two investigators took the stand for the prosecution, but at times, they seemed to do more to help the defense. one of them will give more testimony today. cnn's george howell is live in sanford, florida, tracking the latest for us. good morning, george. >> reporter: good morning. we expect that testimony from chris serino to resume this morning and by way of his investigation we'll hear more from george zimmerman, telling his side of the story to this jury without even opening his mouth in court. the first investigator to interview george zimmerman took the stand on day six of the trial, doris singleton explained
4:21 am
the process. >> it was recorded on a voice recorder that they gave us. >> reporter: prosecutors played the tape, the jury listened closely. >> there's been a few times where i've seen a suspicious person in the neighborhood we call the police non-emergency line and these guys always get away. >> reporter: a key witness for the state, singleton told the jury zimmerman agreed to be interviewed without an attorney present. he didn't realize trayvon martin died from the shooting until she told him. she told defense attorneys zimmerman dropped his head to the table. >> did he have any evidence that he was angry with trayvon martin? >> no. >> that he had hatred for him. >> no. >> spite ill will? >> no. >> that he had anything that would suggest to you some type of bad attitude towards trayvon martin? >> no.
4:22 am
>> rather he seemed to be affected by the fact that he realized that trayvon martin had passed? >> he seemed affected by that. >> reporter: one day after the shooting and george zimmerman returned to this neighborhood with lead investigator chris serino to do a video re-enactment. serino later conducted a more aggressive interview, challenging zimmerman on some points. for instance, in the first statement, zimmerman talked about trayvon martin jumping out of bushes to ambush him. in the re-enactment he didn't mention that, but in court, serino's final analysis -- >> did you notice anything to bring to the jury's attention today that caused you that concern? >> no, not that i can articulate, no, sir. >> reporter: there was also the testimony from dr. hirotaka nakasone, an fbi audio analyst for the defense who was called to the stand by prosecutors, his focus the 911 call where you can hear screaming in the
4:23 am
background. he told jurors it's not possible to determine age or analyze this tape through science dr. nakasone left one possibility wide open. >> for this particular case, best approach would be from the voice recognition by the individual who have heard him in his whole life. >> reporter: that testimony from dr. nakasone very important for the prosecution, because it opens the door for them to have a laywitness for a member of trayvon martin's family to say that is the voice of my son on that 911 audio tape where we hear screaming, a time we expect to hear at some point. >> great analysis, appreciate the reporting. let's break down why this was an important day. come on give me something, wall.
4:24 am
tale of the tape, they had to decide whether this use the interview and they did and they got inconsistencies where his story was different, goes to his credibility. who was screaming? this is what george was talking about. the expert says i can't tell, sounds like it's bad for the prosecution but it is. it opens the door for the family to identify the voice, it will be emotional and compelling. for the defense, kill without ill will, second-degree murder, depraved mind, evil intent. you get the investigators supposed to be for the prosecution but they wind up saying zimmerman didn't seem like he was that kind of angry. what does that mean for the jury? testify without testifying. the prosecution using this now means zimmerman may not have to testify. we have smart people, danny cevallos, defense attorney and vinnie politan host of hln's "after dark" and former
4:25 am
prosecutor. vinnie, the decision to use the videotaped interview by the prosecution, what was the upset, what'd they get out of it? >> there's a huge doneside. >> i said upside, vinnie. give me the upside. >> i'm saying there's a huge downside. the upside you talk about the bushes, he said in this first interview that trayvon martin jumped out of the bushes, then we they go back during the re-enactment i think he knows why he said that, there aren't any bushes in that area to jump out of so that's a big point for prosecutors, and it's going to be tough, though, because now you don't get to cross-examine him, chris. >> exactly right but you take in danny's point, that's why i cut you off, you can't get both points. >> so danny can give me his time. >> vinnie, you got your own show. danny, let me ask you the downside on this.
4:26 am
vinnie is making the point, now they don't get to cross-examine george zimmerman. he may not have to testify. what do you think? >> well, actually i think vinnie makes probably the only good point of the prosecution's case in bringing up this video. you're absolutely right now george zimmerman not only has had the opportunity to testify but he's done so without being cross-examined and the jury sees not once, not twice, not thrice but more than that he has gone to the police and say i will tell you my stories. are there inconsistencies, there are. >> you're right. let me cut you off. rewant to remind people what they heard in the inconsistencies, zimmerman said martin circled his car, one inconsistency. zimmerman says he got out of the car because he didn't know the address the street. is it hiding some type of intent? he says martin jumps out of the
4:27 am
bushes, there are no bushes there. zimmerman says after he shot martin he kept talking. on that point i want to ask you both a question, vinnie, if george zimmerman is telling the truth and after he shot trayvon martin he was still talking let me ask you, why didn't he help him? why didn't he staunch the wound, why didn't he make any effort at rescue? we haven't heard any at the trial. >> that's a great argument to make for the prosecution. george zimmerman said he got on top of him and was trying to restrained him because he was afraid trayvon martin was still going to attack him. you just shot him in the heart, you're afraid he's going to attack you, really? this is where the medical examiner is key to talk about what trayvon martin could or could not do after being shot in the heart at point blank range by george zimmerman. >> danny, when you hear the list we laid out about all the things
4:28 am
zimmerman had said. maybe it's not a murder case but manslaught manslaughter, there are a lot of ways to pick at zimmerman. >> you make a good point and here's why. the jury can disbelieve george zimmerman's self-defense argument. the prosecution still has to meet the burden of proving of evil intent and ill will. i don't know that they've made that out in this case. if the jury finds he reacted with excessive force then maybe conslaughter is the more proep pray crime. when it comes to depraved heart murder they expect a person has such an ill will or hatred that they knew this person before, they hated him and had bad feelg feelings for them. mark o'mara brilliantly cross-examined the police and
4:29 am
literally out of the language of the statute established the lack of ill will, spite or hatred. >> the trial is not over. vinnie do you put him on the stand, get them to identify the voice? >> you finish with sabrina fulton. you don't put tracy martin on the stand, you put mom on the stand, sabrina fulton. that's how you finish this case. >> what does she give you? >> she's going to identify the voice. she's going to make what happened much more real to this jury and remind them that a 17-year-old boy who had skittles and a watermelon street is now dead because he's walking back from a 7-eleven and now he's dead because he was followed for looking suspicious. >> let's go back to the wall. the investigators saying he didn't seem evil.
4:30 am
to me i think it's still even, why? this is not just a second-degree murder case. it's about whether or not george zimmerman did the wrong thing when he killed trayvon martin and can he put out self-defense? if he doesn't testify it could be a problem for him. this case is still not over, because just we make it a lot on tv. tweet me, facebook, use the hash day and go to newday.cnn.com. the housing market may be in good shape but the dirty tricks a pair of neighbors are being accused of pulling that's coming up. also remember those sweaters bill cosby wore on "the cosby show" they're back with a new challenge, the which one do you like best? ♪

5:06 am
asylum but withdrew request for asylum in russia. live in moscow this morning, what's the latest, phil? >> reporter: yeah, kate, 21 countries in total. that's how many edward snowden has asked to take him in and protect him. he has also released a statement. the first time we've heard from him since he fled hong kong, and in this statement he strongly criticizes the united states and what he says, rich countries granting him asylum. he has no option for escaping the moscow airport he arrived at more than a week ago, but in a statement he says he's unbound in his convictions. the obama administration is afraid of you, an informed angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised, and it should be. in addition to his early applications to ecuador and iceland, he accuses the united states of using fear and
5:07 am
political aggression to block those requests. now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the president has ordered his vice president to pressure the leaders of nations from which i have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions. he withdrew from russia after president vladimir putin said it's not possible as long as snowden continues leaking u.s. information. if he plans to stay in russia, he needs to stop his work at harming american partners. first implemented during the administration of george w. bush. president bush told cnn snowden has compromised that program and the united states. >> i know he damaged the country. the obama administration will deal with it. >> do you think it's possible for one man to really damage the security of the nation? >> i think he damaged the
5:08 am
security of the country. >> of those 21 countries that edward snowden has applied for asylum in, you can draw a line through six. that's how many said no. most haven't responded, but he has received comforting and supportive words from venezuela and bolivia. >> thanks so much. now to egypt, where the first democratically elected president has been put on notice. millions of angry protesters are calling for mohamed morsi to step down today, and the military has issued an ultimatum demanding he listens by tomorrow or they'll step in. what's going on from cairo? what do we know there? >> reporter: chris, suspension, anticipation cranking up here in egypt. is it possible that by tomorrow this country is going to push the reset button on the 2011
5:09 am
revolution? things are looking like they are heading that way. two and a half years ago they kicked off mubarak. in came mohamed morsi, freely elected, but they say he has an islamist agenda, he's hijacked the resolution. they want him out and seems they are getting closer to getting that wish. yesterday, the armed forces saying all sides, including the government, has 24 hours to fix things, resolve things. otherwise they say they are going to step in with a road map out of this conflict. now all sorts of pressure on president morsi to see what he does before tomorrow. pressure coming from washington, as well, chris. president obama calling mr. morsi last night with this message, president morsi, try to resolve this. try to meet the needs of the people and the drama building, chris, with these military choppers flying above tahrir square. >> you can hear it.
5:10 am
thank you very much for the reporting from there. >> thanks so much. let's turn now to christiane. christiane, there is a lot to get through on both of these topics, but first on the protests as you see it happening. what do you make of this ultimatum? very unusual. >> i've been there from the beginning watching this unfold. i think this is a most extraordinary moment. what you have is, essentially, the army basically threatening to come in and make a coup. after the revolution, the army was ruling for about a year before the elections, then morsi fired them and put them back into their barracks really. but he is incredibly isolated, his ministers are resigning, some six have resigned, and the people don't want the islamist agenda they believe he has. >> this is the first democratly elected leader and they are
5:11 am
going to kick him out. >> let's see. that's what they are saying. it's extraordinary, because people seem to be calling for the army to come in. as you heard, president obama has called morsi, general dempsey, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff has called him. if the army takes over, then you're faced with what is the u.s. and europe going to say about that, it's a very, very difficult situation to be in. but the opposition shows no sign of wanting to meet morsi halfway. >> you made some great points to me when i came to you to help me understand this situation. one, the opposition's disorganized also. then the concern is what this means for the surrounding region always, right? explain to everybody what you were telling me about how the military is in constant contact with israel. that wouldn't be such a foreign notion. >> look, it's one of only two arab nations which has got a peace deal with israel.
5:12 am
what happens with egypt matters to the whole region, to israel, to the whole peace process, to the united states. what seems to be going on now, this is the third time since the revolution that brought down mubarak that brought protests. one, the ones that brought mubarak, then the ones against the army. >> that's right. >> then, now, this one. it's really a seesaw back and forth, back and forth, and morsi, what he's done, showed he's incompetent. people want the economy fixed and he hasn't been able to do it. plus, it looks like he's tacking on to his muslim brotherhood base, and they are not very good at governing. they were very good as an opposition, but not good at governing. >> the economy is the big problem in egypt, that's for sure. got to ask you about the latest on edward snowden, the nsa leaker. they've put out a list of some 20 countries he's asked to get
5:13 am
asylum from. venezuela, i don't know what to make of what venezuela. >> everybody is stepping back from snowden. where we thought originally russia wanted him, ecuador did, venezuela did, now you are seeing they don't. what he's got now is nothing at the moment. he's stuck still in the transit area of the moscow airport with president putin saying the most unusual thing. you can stay, but you can't hurt our partner america. >> putting snowden to the side, all the disrespect for american mojo to get a boost here, good sign? >> i think for president obama and the administration, it's a good sign. what you've got in europe, on the other hand, is a mounting anger at the revelations by snowden. >> surprise? >> maybe it's not, but the incredible detail of the massive dragnet, it's very unpopular in europe, including with european leaders. the french president said he's going to break off key
5:14 am
negotiations with the united states if this spying doesn't stop. it's a pretty mixed bag, all of this. >> mixed bag of it. nonetheless, all very, very important with real, real consequences, depending how it turns out. christia christiane, thank you so much. you can see christiane. great to see you always. we're going to turn from things heating up overseas, as well as things heating up here in the united states. extreme weather from coast-to-coast. look at this flooding we're showing you right here, that soaked the carolinas, all the way to new england, and you have extreme heat shattering records across the west. dangerous triple-digit temperatures entering a fourth day and the heat smothering a third of the country, from northern california, to new mexico, and it's starting to spread. our dan simon is watching it all, having to stick it out in the heat in las vegas. hey there, dan. >> reporter: hi, kate, good morning. just before sunrise here in las vegas. take a look at this. it's already about 90 degrees.
5:15 am
just been unrelenting here in las vegas and throughout much of the west coast. all across the west, it was another day of oppressive heat. this is a so-called cooling station in las vegas, a place for people to get a break from the triple-digit temperatures. the salvation army says 300 people a day are coming through its doors to escape the unrelenting weather. >> not only do they get the cooling station and water, but they can take showers if they need to in here for free, get as much water as they possibly can utilize in a day, where normally they walk around just looking for it. >> reporter: the causalities continue to mount. in southern california, authorities announce that six runners who braved a half marathon had to be hospitalized for heat-related injuries. relief comes in all forms. >> i get a lot of customers just very happy to see me. >> reporter: in sacramento, this
5:16 am
air conditioner repairman has never been busier. in phoenix, church groups distribute bottled water as quickly as possible. in santa cruz, cooler temperatures at the beach seem heavenly. and back in las vegas, children flock to an ice skating rink. what's also concerning is that places not normally known for sizzling temperatures are also feeling the effect. utah, wyoming, oregon, washington, and idaho have sweltering heat. >> i don't know if you've ever ironed your own shirts and the smell of the ironing board, that's what it smelt like at poolside. >> reporter: seems everybody's got their own analogy and description to describe things. here in las vegas, paramedics have responded to dozens of heat-related calls. as always, elderly and young most at risk. back to you. >> dan, thank you very much. while the west is dealing with the record heat, in the northeast, the problem is rain,
5:17 am
flooding specifically. new jersey, rare thing, tornado did damage, the same storm system also caused flooding in the northeast. let's go to the weather center. >> more rain and more heat, neither of which are good news. we keep talking about record breaking heat. people are getting used to it, problem is the fourth of july holiday is so close, people will be outside and need to be drinking fluids. today, pacific northwest, not used to seeing temperatures near 100 degrees. salt lake city looking at 103. big question, when are we going to see that relief. the position of that actually brings the relief. starting now to see some of that monsoonal flow. that moisture will bring the fire danger down. on the east coast, another ridge of high pressure, so the flood that remains high today, one to three inches. two to four inches possible in the southeast. that would be really bad news if it was one to three feet.
5:18 am
>> at this point i was almost not surprised. >> seriously. looks so much better, though. >> interviewing noaa. >> bingo. >> thank you so much, indra. there is a lot of news developing, so let's get straight to michaela for the latest. >> taliban suicide attackers storm a compound in kabul, detonating a truck bomb. seven people were killed. all five attackers died. heading home, president obama on his way back to washington from africa. before departing, mr. obama joined george w. bush for a wreath-laying ceremony to honor victims of the 1998 terrorist embassy bombing that killed dozens of people. look at this video. an unmanned russian proton rocket swerves out of control, explodes in a massive fire ball. russian officials say the accident was caused by a major engine failure.

statement. i've looked at all of his statement, and he gave several without a lawyer. he didn't stop the questioning. he cooperated for hours and hours and hours. he even reenacted the whole thing. that's extremely rare. i think it helped the defense. but the state had to put it on. >> if the defense introduced this tape, then the right of cross-examination would have kicked in and they would have had to put zimmerman on the stand, wouldn't they? >> not if they introduced just a tape. if they -- you can't force anybody to get up on the stand in a criminal trial. you can't. they could have introduced it because it exists, it's out there. it doesn't really belong to anybody. >> how do they cross-examine it, though? >> you can't cross-examine the tape. you can't cross-examine the tape. you can cross-examine the witness that introduces it, the cop, that builds the foundation
5:26 am
for it. i played your taped statement, you got to take the stand, doesn't work like that. >> that's a key distinction, thank you for that, nancy. looking at what happened with the investigators yesterday, supposed to be the prosecution's witnesses, but they seemed to say things that made it seem like george zimmerman didn't have the mental intent that you need for second-degree murder. a lot of people pointing at this saying case is over, case is over, but tell people why case is not over and why this is not just a second-degree murder trial. >> number one, it's not over until it's over. i have never tried a single case ever that i thought i had a slam dunk. never did i think i was going to win. i went into it with a fight club mentality that i was going to stay in the ring until the bitter end, and that's what you've got to do. you never coast during a trial if you want to win, as in everything in life. everybody claiming it's over, it's over, it's over, it ain't over until the jury walks back
5:27 am
in after that buzzer rings that they've got a verdict. >> for people following at home saying, boy, zimmerman seemed cool. well, did he seem cool when he told police that trayvon martin was circling his car but never told the 911 operator that, describes being attacked by bushes, but are no bushes there. we know he shot him through the heart, but this is a big question, george zimmerman shoots trayvon martin through the heart, but nancy, let me ask you this, if he shoots him through the heart and he says he was still talking to him afterwards, martin was still talking, why didn't george zimmerman try to help him, what's the answer to that question? >> i think -- i think zimmerman did call for help, but it's interesting, zimmerman called for help to restrain trayvon martin. to restrain him. according to zimmerman, he didn't realize that trayvon martin was actually dying, but when you're pointing out all
5:28 am
those, as you're calling them, inconsistencies, i don't see them as inconsistencies as zimmerman's statements. i see them as points where the state can say he's lying. he kept saying that trayvon martin, who is very afraid of him, was running from him, then decided to circle back and jump out from behind the bushes and attack him. to me, that doesn't make any sense. >> and at the perfect time for zimmerman. when i was going back to my car to do what the 911 operator told me to do, i got attacked. very convenient for him. >> yeah. i'm saying, where is those bushes, i didn't see any. i looked at the scene quite often, but his statement itself has changed very little. >> nancy grace, thank you very much for the insight. it will be very interesting today. we believe the investigator will be put back on the stand, and my guess is, nancy, they are going to ask him. remind us, yesterday you were saying what a good guy he was. you wanted him for manslaughter, right?
5:29 am
christopher serino thought he should be brought up for manslaughter. >> that's a tricky thing when you start having police officers tell you what the law is. now a cop cannot -- no witness can get on the stand and say the answer to the ultimate question, is this murder one, is this manslaughter, but they basically laid out a case where this cop believes it was manslaughter, not murder two. >> thank you very much. trial far from over. watch her weeknights at 8:00 p.m. eastern. as always, the trial begins within minutes, we will bring it to you live. kate? >> thanks so much. coming up next on "new day," that's a whole lot of lettuce, folks. we'll tell you about what three friends found in their taco bell bag and what they did with it. whole lot of burritos with that. also coming up, a great story, a duck given a new life thanks to pretty fancy technology. what an animal lover did to help his feathered friend. ♪

"new day." it is tuesday, july 2nd, i'm chris cuomo. >> i'm kate bolduan. we're joined by michaela pereira. coming up this half hour, royal baby watch is on, folks. could there be a way to correctly guess if the duchess of cambridge will have a boy or girl? i don't know, we'll find out. plus, this is a 3d printer that gave this duck a second chance. we've got amazing video. but we also have a lot of news, so let's get to michaela for the five things you need to know. >> for your new day. are you ready? number one, jurors in the george zimmerman case will hear more from the lead investigator, who interrogated him the night trayvon martin was killed. hassan is in court today. same-sex couples may have an easier time getting green cards. immigration officials will now consider visa applications for same-sex spouses.
5:34 am
it follows the supreme court's ruling on same-sex marriage. the annual harbor fest is expected to attract more than 2 million people. and at number five, nearly eight months after hurricane sandy battered liberty island, the statue of liberty will reopen to the public for the first time, appropriately enough, on the fourth of july. how about that? >> that is great. i was in a fishing tournament watching the island, so many people working to get it ready. it's going to be great. >> can't wait to see her. you know what else is great? the royal baby countdown. it is great. the duchess of cambridge is expected to give birth this month and speculation is rampant about whether she'll have a little boy or little girl, but is there a science behind the guessing game? senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen, you went all the way to london to figure this out. >> we did. >> is there an answer, or are we just guess something. >> there is an answer which might be more likely.
5:35 am
there's actually science that says there's telltale signs and in the case of the royal baby, it looks like they are going to have a -- i'm not telling, you have to watch. >> reporter: will katherine give birth to a boy or girl? prince or princess? londoners love to guess. >> boy or girl? >> girl. >> girl, looks like an elegant, feminine bump. >> 50/50 chance you'll have a boy or girl. totally random. but apparently that's not true. >> absolutely it's not true. >> reporter: biologist on the expert of science of sex prediction. she says there's real evidence the royal couple is likely to have a daughter. first, there's katherine tiny pre-pregnancy waistline. a study shows women who eat less are more likely to conceive a girl. >> one idea is maybe boy babies or boy embryos need to have much richer fruit supply. >> reporter: then there's prince
5:36 am
william's daring rescues as a royal air force pilot. >> emotional, physical, demanding. >> high-stress job, those are more likely to have girl infants than boys. >> reporter: perhaps, most telling of all -- >> she is suffering from very severe morning sickness. >> reporter: that means she's 80% more likely to have a girl, according to one study. >> so, girl, girl, girl. >> that's right. >> reporter: are these old wive's tales or is it real science? >> no, this is all real science. >> reporter: of course, it might be too soon to paint the royal nursery pink just yet. we'll find out the baby's gender for sure when posted in the buckingham palace courtyard, just like when prince william was born. >> all right, we were talking throughout this entire piece, because we have so many questions. there's a way to guess the likelihood of one sex or the other, but still, there's no way to engineer it. >> no, no, no. there's no way to engineer it.
5:37 am
there isn't. i have four girls, and on the last one, we thought what can we do to get a boy? didn't work. we love her so much, but nothing works. >> morning sickness i always heard, if you have more morning sickness, more serious, then it always means a girl. >> that is the strongest. of all the things we talked about, that's the strongest. the female fetus produces hormones of her own. you have your hormones, double hormones. that's really quite clear. bad, bad morning sickness, much more likely to have a girl. >> my grandmother is always right. baby was born, she was always right. >> she wouldn't tell anyone until the baby was born. >> she'd never show us what was on the paper. we weren't going to argue. >> grandma cuomo, you're always right. time now for the good stuff. stay with us.
5:38 am
this is our one for today, okay, you ready? this is great. young people, they like to go, drive-through taco bell, they get more than they thought when they go through. they go through, take a listen. >> ended up being three bags of money, a lot of money, and then another wad of another 20s. we added it up and it was, like -- >> $3,600. >> bags of cash, $3,600. >> they go there, order their food, get the bag, leave, what's in the bag, not their food, all this money. free and clear. they could have kept it, but guess what, these kids, they think someone's going to lose their job over this. they go back to the taco bell, give it back to the employee, who's crying, because she realized their mistake, and they say the best thing about going back and giving the money back, the satisfaction, but also they finally got their food. >> free tacos for a year. >> that's how good the chalupa is. >> how can the money end up in a

bag? >> i've seen them do it to disguise it not as a deposit, they'll put it in a to-go container to not make it obvious. >> it's called a gross mistake, but they did the right thing. it's the good stuff. tell us more of the stories going on in your community like this. you tweet us at chris cuomo, kate bolduan, go to facebook, use the #newday, leave us a message. we want to keep telling these stories. here's another one. you have definitely heard of this. have you heard of cross fit? that's what he does. highly intensive, difficult workout routine, is tough for anyone to get through. imagine doing it with cerebral palsy. dr. sanjay gupta has that in this morning's human factor. >> kettle bells, situps, pushups, squats. completing a morning workout is impressive for everyone, but for
5:40 am
her it was once inconceivable. >> i was born three months premature, lost a lot of oxygen and blood through that process. >> reporter: steph has cerebral palsy. that develops after trauma to the brain during or after birth. people with the condition are often unsteady on their feet, muscle coordination problems, and all of this can make cross fit training dangerous, but for steph, it's just another obstacle to overcome. >> all of my other brothers and sisters are completely able bodied and growing up in that world, there was no other way to live. >> reporter: she was always active, but the inevitable freshman 15 in college made her really want to get in shape. >> i found a gym, i walked in, i said i want to become stronger, i hear crossfit's awesome, would i be able to do this? >> reporter: within an hour, she was hitting the mats. with each pushup, she got stronger. each pullup, more intense. >> i'm determined to prove not only to the world, but to
5:41 am
myself, that i'm good enough to do this. >> reporter: not only is she good enough to do it, she's now good enough to coach. >> fight for it, guys, let's go. >> reporter: earlier this year, she became the world's first certified crossfit trainer with cerebral palsy. >> there's no reason in this world people have to say they can't do something. if somebody really wants to do something, they are going to find a way to make it work. >> reporter: dr. sanjay gupta, cnn. >> i'm not surprised with crossfit, they are a real community. they brought her in, now she's one of the coaches there. good for them. >> what a rock star. good stuff. take a quick break. when we come back on "new day," call him the $6 million duck. now fixed, very happy. impressive technology, as well. we'll tell you about it. mom, dad told me that cheerios is good for your heart,

this is pretty incredible. take a close look at this duck. this guy was born with a backward left foot, and now thanks to very forward thinking, he doesn't miss a step. this is a good one. >> duck tales.
5:46 am
>> there are so many -- i don't want to get that started right now. this is certainly the feel good story of the day. the little duck that could, all right, had to say that. buttercup was born with an inverted foot that made it impossible for the guy to walk, so it had to be amputated. after creative thinking and amazing technology, buttercup is now able to walk on his own two feet. >> reporter: this little guy is no ordinary duck. take a look at this amazing video of buttercup taking his first steps on a prosthetic foot, created in part by a 3d printer. >> look at him go. >> reporter: mike gary has been rescuing and caring for dozens of ducks and geese for seven years, but he's never had a duck like buttercup before. when buttercup was hatched as part of a biology project at a local high school, students noticed a birth defect.
5:47 am
>> it's worth doing to help him out. >> reporter: the misformed foot was causing buttercup so much pain, it had to be amputated, leaving buttercup with a peg leg he barely managed to hobble around on, but gary had a plan to fix that. >> i thought let me fix out of the box and thought, why can't i make him a real foot? >> reporter: gary created a 3d computer image, sent it to a 3d printing company in nashville, which donated its services to create an identical plastic replica. gary and his team created a softer, easier to use silicone version, and finally proving he's no chicken, buttercup bravely walked around on his own two feet. >> look at him go, oh, my gosh. >> that's phenomenal. >> really getting the hang of it. >> good news is he fixed his foot, bad news is he ran away
5:48 am
and they haven't seen him since it happened. not true, not true. >> there have been other examples, by the way, of animals with prosthetics. remember the dolphin movie of 2011, prosthetic fin, but buttercup is the first with a prosthetic made from a 3d printer. >> 3d technology is amazing. terrifying how they do that. if i was a duck, i would think that was awesome. sorry to the duck population. >> thank you so much. chris is holding himself back. that's actually very good and unusual. coming up next on "new day," what the heck is this? >> we're going to do this. >> this is coming up on "new day," don't want to miss it. bubble soccer, bubble football. la's known definitely for its traffic, congestion, for it's smog. but there are a lot of people that do ride the bus. and now that the busses are running on natural gas,

this life-sized replica mimics the sounds and movements of a real parakeet in the wild. >> well, apparently there is an answer. listen. >> parakeets are the most popular pet bird in the world, but they require a lot of care. now perfect polly brings you all the joy and none of the mess. >> so like all of you, apparently, i'm a firm believer of the free market and capitalism. if someone is selling a fake pet parakeet, there must be a market for a fake pet parakeet. doesn't fly, requires batteries, but at least doesn't go to the bathroom. so perfect polly is today's winner of the bird in hand award. >> very nice. >> how much is a bird in hand worth, you might ask? it's worth $14.99. >> that's all you need to know. >> john berman, thank you very much. think of that over this commercial break.
