if something should happen where the parachute fails to deploy, you could have somebody killed. >> reporter: that was the case recently when the chute didn't open for a newlywed whose chute didn't open in utah. known as experienced b.a.s.e. jumpers. her husband was charged with a demeanor b.a.s.e. jumping offense after her death. an arrest may not deter thrill seekers from taking these dangerous and sometimes deadly and in this case illegal plunges. he knows a lot of people who died from b.a.s.e. jumping but doesn't known anyone who has been arrested after posing a video on youtube. >> thank you so much. much more straight ahead in the "cnn newsroom." and it all begins again right now.
10:01 am
hello again. i'm fredricka whitfield. here's the stories we're following in the "cnn newsroom." day four of deliberations in the loud music murder trial. the question they asked that suggested what might be holding them up. plus, it's the winter that simply won't quit. how a new blast of snow could impact travel this hollywood weekend. and three decades after the miracle on ice, here we go again. the u.s. and russia meeting up in a shootout thriller in sochi. the jury in that loud music murder trial could reach a verdict at any moment. this is the case of michael dunn who is accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old jordan davis after a fight over loud music at a gas station. it was busy at the start of this morning with the jury asking
10:02 am
interesting and telling questions. but it's been quiet since then. alina cho and sunny hostin are both live for us in jacksonville. alina, let's begin with you about the questions that were asked of the court. >> reporter: well, that's right. it was a question, actually a three-part question that was asked. but before i get into that, i want to move out of the way and show you the scene here outside the courthouse. you can see some children are protesting. there's also a larger group of people protesting standing out there with signs calling for justice for jordan davis outside of this courthouse while the jury inside continues to deliberate. now, they've been deliberating now today for about four hours. and right at the beginning about 30 minutes into their deliberation today, they had a question for the judge. take a listen. >> first question. is the defense of self-defense
10:03 am
separate for each person in each count? the answer is yes. second question. are we determining if deadly force is justified against each person in each count? the answer is yes. the third question. or if we determine deadly force is justified against one person, is it justified against the others? no. self-defense and justifiable use of deadly force applies separately to each count. >> reporter: the judge brought in don and asked him if he had any concerns with the responses to the questions. and dunn did express concerns over the judge's response to the third question about justifiable force saying that he felt that all four people in the suv are intertwined with his defense of self. the judge said he understood that, but he still felt that because of the law, he had to instruct the jury to consider each count separately. fredricka? >> and sunny, let me bring you
10:04 am
in. do those questions reveal to you and the answers as well as real clarity? or does this only bring more confusion potentially for this jury? j . >> reporter: you know, i think it's clear they're struggling with the self-defense. if you look at the law it is true that self-defense doesn't apply a blanket defense per victim. i think with that clarity they go back in the courtroom and will be able to discern the difference between the counts which relate to the murder of jordan davis and then the attempted murder counts which relate to the other three boys that were in the car. >> okay. and alina, has the court given any instruction as to when the jurors render a verdict, how much notification they will give whether it be reporters or family members of all parties involved?
10:05 am
>> reporter: yeah. it's worth mentioning that the courtroom right now is empty. and that's because the judge decided that because there were some issue, there was potential for voices to travel between the walls, between the courtroom and the jury deliberation room. they decided to empty out the courtroom during deliberations. so once there is a verdict, the judge says that he will give anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes notice to make sure that everyone is able to make it back into that courtroom. and in fact, he mentioned that one of the alternate jurors at least one of the alternate jurors has expressed interest in being present when that verdict is read. >> all right. alina, thank you so much and sunny, appreciate it. we'll check back with you as we learn more about deliberations now entering 21 hours of deliberating. we'll have more on the dunn case throughout the coming hour as well. just a few minutes we're going to talk to an expert on reading the juries. about the men and women deciding this case.
10:06 am
all right. and let's talk now about winter weather. it has been very brutal. another storm pushing its way into the northeast. blizzard warnings are up for coastal massachusetts, parts of maine. could get more than a foot of snow. looking pretty gray depending on vantage point. kind of gray, kind of white. glass half full, empty, what do you say? all right. jennifer gray with us now. some folks are so over the snow. >> i'm with them. i'm over it too. and we're in atlanta. we haven't even had it that bad. but the good news about this is it is going to be a fast mover. this is not going to be as bad as the one we had a couple days ago. we had a blizzard warning in effect across coastal massachusetts. that does include the cape. until tomorrow morning at 5:00. could see 60 mile-an-hour winds there. here's the radar. you can see the snow really starting to fill in. especially around new york city. we had rain earlier. now it's changing over to snow. you can see the bright bands of
10:07 am
white. heavier snowfall starting to fall there. boston, you're getting it too. that's going to continue as we go through the late evening hours into the overnight as well. so let's time this out. 8:00 tonight, you can see boston still in the snow. already pushing out of new york city. northern maine, that's when we're going to see the highest snowfall amounts. could see a foot of snow in those areas. other places like new york could see anywhere from 2 to 4 inches. we could see 6 to 10 right outside the boston area so it is going to be heavier out there. new york city, you're not getting above freezing until tuesday. so it is going to stay very cold for you. but on the flipside, look at the south. 62 degrees in atlanta. by monday. a huge -- fred, huge warm-up. can you believe it? >> i know. it's strange. and people will be wearing shorts. >> i might be by the pool on monday. >> not until i get a little
10:08 am
skiing in somewhere where there's snow. thanks so much. let's check on susan candiot candiotti. she's at laguardia. i know what it's like. but susan, maybe you have some good news for folks that they will soon be getting on their planes. >> reporter: i can honestly say that throughout the day today, we haven't seen that many cancellations. only a handful at least in this terminal. there are problems at newark airport as well as dulles airport and now boston because of the ongoing blizzard forecast starting up there. snow very light here right now, but people continue to check into their flights. however, you do get those issues every now and again. and a little bit earlier we ran into a woman who was in here checking in with her boyfriend. they were trying to get back to minneapolis. and their flight had been delayed from a day before so they came back today. and wait until you hear her tale. they are getting back home
10:09 am
tonight, but it won't be easy. listen. >> i'm taking three flights from here to charlotte, charlotte to chicago, chicago to minneapolis. he takes four flights. so he's to charlotte to raleigh to chicago to minneapolis. and he gets in at 11:30 tonight. >> you have to make three connections to get back and he's taking four? >> yes. to do a, like, three-hour flight to minneapolis. yeah. >> what do you make of this? >> it's insane. >> reporter: yeah, insane. no kidding. can you imagine? boyfriend, girlfriend, they kiss good-bye. he ran to the gate then she had to run to her gate. >> i can't even imagine what that's going to be like. >> reporter: and they had to get back today because they've got to start work early tomorrow. so there was no two ways about it. and the airline did take care of them. so it worked out in the end. not the way they would have planned it, but they're getting home. >> but at least they're moving.
10:10 am
they're moving the right directions meaning to their final destination. you know, you got to hand it to all the ticket counter attendants. boy, you know they're getting an earful and a mouthful all the time and they're trying to keep it together and trying to calm people as best they can. >> reporter: interesting you should mention that because the woman who worked it out for them, they were at the counter a good 45 minutes and you could see she was trying to work it whatever way she could. in the end, it did. taking a long route home for what normally would be a three-hour flight. but she made it work. >> i've been in that situation many times too. and, you know, i love them for trying to work so diligently on your specific situation every time. so hats go off to them. all right susan candiotti, appreciate that. okay. guess what? a little history was made on the ice again today. a rivalry between the u.s. and russia settled. at least for now. maybe. so if you are watching the u.s.

all right. back now to florida where everyone is anxiously awaiting to hear if the jury in the loud music trial reaching a verdict today. the jury is in its fourth day of deliberations now. michael dunn is charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of jordan davis. dunn says he acted in self-defense after the teen threatened him, in his words. joining us to talk about the jury is richard gabriel. he's a jury consultant. he worked on the o.j. simpson and casey anthony trials. he has a book coming out this summer called "acquittal" talking about some of those big cases. good to see you. >> good to see you too. >> today this jury is already exhibiting its diligence. it was willing to work through the weekend last week and this weekend. deliberating now four days over 20 hours. this morning the jurors had yet
10:16 am
another set of questions for the judge. let's listen to those three questions asking the courtroom for some clarification. >> first question. is the defense of self-defense separate for each person in each count? the answer is yes. second question. are we determining if deadly force is justified against each person in each count? the answer is yes. the third question. or if we determine deadly force is justified against one person, is it justified against the others? no. self-defense and justifiable use of deadly force applies separately to each count. >> and i know this is tough. it's like reading tea leaves trying to figure what is going on behind closed doors, what, you know, is a jury asking about. what are they hung on. what do these questions in your view tell you about what might be happening among those jurors? >> well, this is why both sides
10:17 am
rely so heavy on jury selection. because back there it's beyond the evidence. right now we're in a phase where it's about the personalities back there and about how they persuade each other. so it's about their interpretation of the evidence. so when you have questions like this, i think as one of your guests said earlier, it is problematic for the defense because -- and i think this also goes to where the jurors had asked earlier to see the footage from inside the gas station. because the timing of the last three shots, the delay in that could signify to the juror there's a delay. >> while it is driving away. >> so is that attempted murder? so is there no longer a justifiable use of force. >> and is that attempted murder and based on the question being
10:18 am
asked, is it the case that the defendant is still feeling like his life is on the line? >> and there's a where the jurors are sitting there. in fact, every juror probably is back there in the room going, am i sitting in michael dunn's car? am i sitting in jordan davis' car? am i watching this from the gas station and what really happened here? who's the aggressor? at this point is he justified if he thinks there's a weapon that jordan davis has. force no longer justified?use of is it justified on the first six shots but not on the last three. and that's where they're trying to work through these issues. and that's where some jurors probably are in there saying, look. i think that it is just a flatout murder. he wasn't justified in the very beginning. and some think he reasonably did feel threatened.
10:19 am
>> and as a juror are you possibly doing some role-playing where sometimes you are in the seat of the defense and prosecution. is that taking place among those jurors in that room saying, okay, let's look at this from different points of view. or is it going to be in its totality which brought the most convincing argument? >> most likely you do have role-playing. in fact, that's why some of the jurors asked for butcher block paper and things to work things out. you may also notice they asked for the dummy to look at the trajectory. the judge said no to that question. you look at the angle of the shots and more than likely you have jurors saying if my body's in that position, is the bullet going to enter this? does that mean he's outside the vehicle or inside the vehicle? so you do have a lot of that as they try to figure out what happened. >> thank you for your point of view. i appreciate that. your book coming out later in the summer called "acquittal." we're entering the 21st hour of

well as they have wanted and they say it has something to do with the suits. >> they busted out these new underarmor suits they thought would be their secret weapons. they had a vent in the back that was supposed to make them go faster, but the skater are all saying it's making them go slower. so in the first six events, no american finished in the top five of any of the races. they're saying these suits are slowing us down. so they went back to the old suits they were wearing in previous competitions. >> can they do that? >> yeah. the ioc approved them. but it hasn't helped them. in today's 1500 meter race, spoiler alert. finished seventh and eleventh. underarmor is a little vindicated here. it's not us. still not winning. but team usa did get another medal today. we're second in the medal count.

this particular case is it was out of control. it was a systemic failure. it started with the old group, it went into their meeting room, their coach. then went to the practice field. that made it a failure of the team and the locker room. so it really got exacerbated. >> those are not my words, those are other former players who say what's the problem here? this is the way it is. this crossed the line. it's too much. but now what culturally for the locker room, for locker rooms, for rookies as they get excited about joining a team. what can the expectations be now? >> i think a lot of that has changed. there's been a lot of changes that have been happening. and i think at the end of the day, why it has to change is it affects the team on the field. that's where changes really start. all this kind of made it where miami that started off well, that looked like a good team. all of a sudden you blow up and
10:45 am
you're missing the playoffs. well, that affects your winning. that affects on the field. >> and so now what for the players. what for richie incognito? what now for jonathan martin? >> the challenge is going to be on martin. incognito's fate should be and rightfully so out of his hands for a i while. the commissioner has been very fair, but he's been firm. you have three players an an assistant coach which i think are going to face his wrath. but i think when you look at the entire group what's next, they go back to being -- trying to be a winning organization. chris has been part of winning teams. i've been part of big time winning teams. you've never had these problems. this was a losing team's frustration that got out of control. and i think it snow balled. >> for jonathan martin, does he have a shot of getting on another team or even though we got the report that substantiates something horrible went on here, does it mean
10:46 am
there's another hurdle? is that what people are saying about martin? weak and soft and this is the result of that? >> absolutely. the question is does jonathan martin actually want to play? >> he has said that he wants to play again. >> but saying it with words. football will take your words and mix them all up. he has to be willing to go out on that field, be willing to go against other men. he has to make that up in his mind. hopefully he gets some closure and he can really decide that. but it's going to be a tough decision for him. >> and i'm not saying he's weak and soft. it sounds like there have been some who justify this kind of roughening up of a player because we don't accept weak and soft. >> well, don't forget in this whole thing as it all takes its incognito is fined or suspended. jonathan martin wants to come back. it's really martin's case. it's not a bullying case. it's a mental health case.
10:47 am
this is a guy that admitted he thought about suicide a couple times. >> but is that fair? >> is it fair? >> yeah. >> is it ever fair to be labeled that way? >> is it fair he would reveal that but then that would be used as justification, you know, as to why you weren't able to endure this treatment from others. >> not as far as you couldn't endure it. but it obviously wouldn't be grounds for not being able to work in that environment from a legal standpoint. but it is a mental health -- if he's got his house in order, he should be able to play. if he can answer fire with fire, because that's how you have to answer these kind of things. >> do you think this report helps tee up a potential legal case? >> well -- >> i know you're not legal experts, but i wonder if you were the player and you were involved in this would you say, you know, this would help me or this gives me the grounds on which to pursue something legally? >> i think that's -- when you're talking about jonathan martin wanting to play. if he were to pursue a legal case like that and in most
10:48 am
instances he's saying he doesn't want to keep on playing. i think that's what's great about this coming out and really kind of let's put this to bed. closure on it. how are you going to deal with the three guys an the assistant coach? and then jonathan martin, is that enough for you to feel like you do want to be part of the nfl, that you want to go back out and play. >> and the first thing he did was go back to his legal grou s grounds, to his legal center. his parents. he looks across the breakfast table for his legal advice more than likely. he's able to draw on that home and family now. he's probably never needed it more than he has now. >> we'll leave it right there. thanks so much, gentlemen. appreciate it. all right. cleaning windows. it can seem more like a chore for anyone, but imagine doing it like this. 2700 feet above the ground. i don't know, you guys. would you be willing to do something like that? that's insane. we're go i think to explain how they do it and why next.

oh, my gosh. imagine, whew, the view from the world's tallest building. it's in the middle east. 160 stories tall. but how do you actually clean all the glass on that building? you might be surprised to know, and scared to see, that they do it just the way you might imagine. we have the story. >> reporter: when they built the
10:53 am
world's tallest building in dubai it was covered in 24 separate panes of glass. this job is keeping them clean. the work interesting, the view beautiful, he tells me. he is wan of 60 migrant workers who clean windows here, and in this dusty, desert climate, there's plenty of work for them. they start at the very tiptop. we're standing on the 159th floor of this building, about 35 stories higher than most tourists get to go. it doesn't sound that high, perhaps, but if you come over here, look over the edge, you might change your mind. it's more than 2,700 feet or nearly a kilometer straight down. certainly not a job for the faint of heart. especially when rappelling. when the inspections are done
10:54 am
they step out over the edge and get down to business. it will take them three months to clean each and every window, and then they start all over again. the building's contractor, those, says it's still the most official way to get the job done. for deepak, also a decent living. with a new recruit he can make over $600 a much, more more than a construction worker building skyscrapers like this one. my mom always asks why i do this and tells me it looks dangerous. she wants me to come back to nepal and get a regular job. i tell them, no, no. i like it, and it's a good living, and, he said, just know day at the office. for cnn, in dubai. once completed, china's shanghai tower will be the world's second tallest structure
