7:12 am
come into my room. and i would only be half asleep or having breakfast. >> and one of the things you hear on these tapes, in the course of our two hours tomorrow night, is s journey she takes from someone who is a witness to history to someone who will make history. and find her own voice. there's a moment in this portrait of the marriage that she gives. it's the cuban missile crisis, the closest the u.s. ever came to nuclear war with the soviet union. here is what she says to him. >> i could tell from his voice. he was talking through the door. i went up and listened and eves dropped. i could hear mcnamara say something. i thought, i mustn't listen. i went away. from then on, it seems there was no waking or sleeping. i don't know which day was which. that's the time i was the closest to him.
7:13 am

7:15 am
this all has to do with greece and fears they may default on their massive, massive debt. and soon, the concern that italy and spain could be suck into that economic vortex. this all sounds far away. remember, there's so much european money in those country, so much of our mon initial our 401 (k)s in europe. that's why they are getting jitter, remember it was down 300 points friday. josh. >> authorities said an explosion in southern frank was called an industrial accident inside a furnace that burns waste. it is still unclear what caused the explosion. a dramatic story from the gulf of mexico. seven oil workers missing from thursday some 50 miles off the mexican coastline have been found alive. two are americans. the bodies two other workers were also found sunday and the search does continue now for a tenth man.

7:17 am
which makes me a horrible, horrible father. i'm sorry, honey. i'm sorry. >> i have more ammunition at home now. turn that off. >> you're not going to do that? yes, you are. >> a sad, sad day. that, by the way is where spongebob lives. let's get to the board, one or two things going on. 80 degrees in new york. 78 in boston. yeah, i watch, so what? 81 in philadelphia. i have always had short-term memory -- >> don't worry. it doesn't show. >> 100 in dallas, 94 in oklahoma city. check out these numbers. minneapolis, 90 degrees. chicagoland into the 80s. maybe even warmer than that 80-degree number. we have to talk this week because there are one or two cold fronts that will knock this cold air all the way to the northeast by the time we get to the weekend. that's a big change coming in the next couple of days.

[ bleep ]. >> reporter: after sunday's match, she was gracious in her defeat. >> i don't remember what i said. i was so intense out there. it's the finals for me. i was just -- i have to go -- i guess i'll see it on youtube, i don't know. >> reporter: the usta says it will review the call. but for now, the loss and the

this is surveillance video of a walgreen's in michigan. it's been roged. the pharmacist pulls out a gun. scares the thieves away. instead of being hailed as a hero, the pharmacist got fired.
7:31 am
he's suing walgreen's. it's a complicated one. >> it is. and the 3-year-old dolled up as a pretty woman, a la julia roberts. her mother takes on the critics who say, her daughter looks too sexy, too soon. >> people will be weighing in on that. and then j. lo. she gave her fans a thrill of a lifetime. first to the attempted heist caught on tape. a pharmacist foiling a robbery. apparently saving the day. why did he lose his job? dan harris has more on the incident and why the man is now suing walgreengreenwalgreens. >> on the video tape, you'll see a night shift nightmare play out in real l me and you can decide whether an employee was reckless
7:32 am
or heroic. it all plays out on this harrowing surveillance video of a walgreens fapharmacy. it's 4:30 in the morning. the pharmacist is sorting medications behind the unter. two armed men wearing masks enter. immediately, they start pointing their guns at one of the workers. then they take a second worker, manager hostage. dragging him through the aisles at gunpoint. he tries to call 91 is. >> seconds later, saw another manager with a gunman. the gunman saw me. and i saw him. >> reporter: he turns, aims his gun at hoven. >> i feared forr my life. the gunman repeatedly attempted to fire upon me. >> reporter: thee times, says hoven. but for some reason, the gun wouldn't fire. >> in self-defense, i fired my
7:33 am
web. >> reporter: the robbers run out in a panic. while thoeb got hurt. some would see his actions as heroic, wall greens does not. five days later, despite the fact he had a permit to carry a gun, he was fired for violating company policy. >> at no time with my i employment was i advised of, given a copy of, or discussed with management a nonescalation policy. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, walgreens stands by hind their policies. they say they're designed for the safety of employees. hoven is fighting back with a wrongful termination suit. >> he's saying he was fired in
7:34 am
violation of michigan public policy. citizens of michigan have a right to defend themselves and that walgreens violated his right to self-defense by firing him. >> the reason he started carrying a gun in the first place was this same pharmacy was held up in 2007. since getting fired, he's been unemployed. >> you can see why a company would have a nonescalation policy. but if you don't know about it -- >> that is a key point. >> a lot of people waiting to see how this turns out. first, let's get the latest on robyn gardner. abc news has more exclusive video. matt gutman joins us with more. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's through this new video. we have multiple angles on two days that we have pieced together the most accurate time
7:35 am
lynne yet of the days before and after robyn gardner went missing. we're getting a glimpse. in these exclusive surveillance videos. "gma" learned just a day before robyn gardner vanished, she and her companion had been to the same beach at the same time. look closely. that's the rented toyota caught by sur valance cameras passing the closed restaurant just after 3:00 p.m. a half hour later, here ambling along the beach behind the closed restaurant. you can tell it was robyn. she's wearing the same dress she wore the day she vanished. the next day, an employee recognized gardner from her tattoos and her blond hair extensions.
7:36 am
that's robyn in the sun dress. and giordano in the khaki shorts. he claimed he l lt gardner. >> i ii were interviewing him. i would push him on, here you are walking around like you don't raely care. you're not trying to find the people on the other side of t t doors. >> reporter: the restaurant is closed. he later tells investigators he was trying get help, rouse someone from the restaurant. he crisscrossed the bar area and the patio. leaving the restaurant and going around back. investigators say he seems to have appeared in fron of all the cameras as if to establish an l alibi. >> you would think he would be
7:37 am
knocking on doors. >> reporter: he says not acting excited enough does not mean you murdered someone. there's still no hard evidence linking giordano to any crime. he's not been charged with anything yet. >> let's get dan abrams to weigh in. being a bad actor shouldn't get you convicted. >> i think this will make the investigators that much more frustrated. they're going the say, gosh, we know this is the guy. we're so convinced of it. yet, they don't seem to have enough. i think at this point, they have enough evidence to convict him in the court of public opinion but probably not in the court of law. most people will look at this and say, i don't buy this guy's story. >> it did appear staged. >> oh, yeah. you have the possibility he may have been casing it the day before. so all of these pieces together are going to lead investigators
7:38 am
to become more convinced in their own minds that they have the e ght guy. >> they're going to have a real tough call at the end of this next 60-day period. >> they're going to want to hold him. after another 60 days, what will they be able to find? can they find a body? >> let's talk about the walgreens case. wrongful termination lawsuit from the pharmacist. it would seem common sense. you have a permit to carry the weapon. you shoot back. you shouldn't get fired. >> wall greens with have policy, saying you can't carry guns at work. if you violate it, you're fired. it's a horrible idea for them to then invoke it at this point. i mean, you look at what happened here. and it's the ultimate case of someone seemingly using a weapon in the right way. seemingly using it in
7:39 am
self-defense. saving his colleagues, et cetera. so for walgreens, put aside the legal side of it. for them to move forward and say, we're going the fire you nonetheless just seems like a bad move. >> if they can show he was told about the policy, is that enough to win? >> maybe. as long as they amy it consistently. they can tell him, let's sea he can show seven other pharmacists were bringing weapons, she coul say he was singled out. the nonescalation policy will be tougher to defend. >> thanks, dan. let's go to sam with the weather. we're going to start with the low in the southwest. not always do the thunderstorms give you the rains. there has been dry lightning and fires out there. bakersfield with the lightning
