the hospital. and when she delivers. a very traditional, regal set of events. something this country hasn't seen in nearly 30 years. >> an extraordinary set of events. i think that name, contraction watch. i can see the graphics package already. bianna, we'll get back to you in a moment, with more on the baby watch coming up. we begin with the six women, five of them mothers, who are reentering the jury room this morning to decide the fate of this man, george zimmerman. >> it's a case that transfixed and divided america. abc's matt gutman is in sanford, florida. >> reporter: good morning, paula. good morning, dan. that is a heavy burden they bear. and the six jurors are expected back here this morning. they're probably going to take up a room on the other side of that courthouse. for the past two weeks they've been listening, prohibited from talking about the case, even that each other. now, it's their turn to talk. they spent about 3 1/2 hours
deliberating yesterday. and judging by the first act as a jury, they are taking this responsibility very seriously. it was the first decision as a jury. >> it's in the form of a request from the jury. is there an inventory list of the evidence by number and description? >> reporter: the controversial case put in their hands, after attorneys for both sides made their last pitch. >> i'm asking you to use your common sense. >> reporter: an appeal from prosecutor john guy, for the six jurors, five of them mothers, to think with their hearts. >> who is responsible for the state, not being able to ask trayvon martin to come forward. and put my hand on his shoulder. i wish i could do that. >> reporter: insisting that zimmerman's claim of self-defense is a lie. and saying his responsibility began when he followed trayvon martin. >> this case is not about standing your ground. it's about staying in your car. >> reporter: zimmerman's lead
defense attorney, mark o'mara, also employed theater. even halling out this block of cement, saying that he had to shoot in self-defense, to keep his head from being beat into the sidewalk. >> that is not an unarmed teenager. >> reporter: tension overnight mounting with the jury recessing until morning, delaying the verdict. at times, it seemed almost too much for trayvon martin's parents, now determined to see it through. >> they started this journey over 17 months ago. just asking for simple justice so his death won't be in vain. >> reporter: now, everyone here is waiting anxiously. i'm told zimmerman is huddling with his family. trayvon martin's parents also very anxious. but throughout, they've been urging everyone to stay calm. i spoke with the chief of police. he said he does not expect any kind of unrest. still, he's canceled all vacations, all furloughs. it's all hands on deck with his
police force. >> nervous hours in florida. matt gutman, thank you. for more on all of this, let's bring in abc's chief legal affairs anchor and "nightline" anchor. these jurors have three options. second-degree murder, manslaughter or not guilty. in your view, which of the options are most likely to choose? >> if these jurors follow the letter of the law, and jurors in high-profile cases tend to follow the letter of the law, i think they'll find him not guilty. what does it mean? it means they won't be able to find beyond a reasonable doubt that it wasn't self-defense at the moment that this happened. and people talk about the elements needed for second-degree murder and manslaughter. those are all true. but the most important legal issue for these jurors is have the prosecutors overcome proving beyond a reasonable doubt that it was not self-defense in that moment? and i think that most people who have been watching this case, most lawyers in particular, think that's a tough, tough burden for the prosecution. >> you think it's possible we could see a verdict as soon as today. why so quickly?
>> because it hasn't been that long a case. this is not a case about whodunit. we know who did it. george zimmerman shot trayvon martin. the question is how and why? and i think when jurors are determining that issue, if there's not a divide, if there's not a split, if there's not one person who is separated from the rest of the jury, i don't think there's any reason why we couldn't have a verdict late today. >> it's possible this will be a big day in florida. dan abrams, thank you very much. we'll come back to you as the story develops. paula, back to you. >> thanks, dan. now, to the dramatic rescue. a 6-year-old boy swallowed up by a sinkhole on the beach. he was trapped inside for more than 3 hours under 11 feet of sand, while rescuers tried frantically to find him. rob nelson is here with the story. >> reporter: incredible story here. good morning, guys. that little boy is lucky to be alive after a peaceful family trip to an indiana park turned into an hour's long rescue mission. the 6-year-old nearly buried
under a building's worth of sand. overnight, a race against time as crews work to rescue a 6-year-old boy who was trapped under 11 feet of crushing sand when a massive sand dune swallowed him up. >> we honestly don't know what happened. this is unprecedented. we never had anything like this. >> reporter: it all took place at the mt. baldy sand dun, at indiana dune lake shore park. the dune is the park's tallest, standing at 124 feet along lake michigan, equivalent to a 12-story building. his parents were nearby. >> they didn't actually see the initial collapse. but when they got to him, they could actually see him for a little bit, tried to dig him out. and that's when the total collapse as they described it happened. >> reporter: after 3 1/2 hours, workers lifted the young boy to safety, using heavy machinery and shovels.
this morning, officials say the 6-year-old is lucky to be alive, after being rushed by helicopter to the university of chicago children's hospital. >> condition at this point is unknown. and we're just waiting and holding our breath. >> reporter: officials tell abc news the boy, who is from illinois, may have been saved by an air pocket deep inside that sinkhole, created by an old tree. the youngster is being treated for sand that he may have ingested that in his lungs. but lucky to be alive. >> we're pulling for him this morning. rob nelson, thank you. let's get over to rob claiborne, for a look at the stories overnight. >> hey, dan. and my office neighbor. i'm not around and you're not around. good morning. the texas senate passed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. the bill gained national attention when a filibuster block the republicans' original
attempts to pass it. rick perry, who supported the bill is expected to sign it into law. a third passenger onboard that asiana airlines flight that crashed at san francisco airport has died. the girl had been in critical condition since the crash last saturday. also, san francisco police department officials are confirms that another victim, a 16-year-old girl, was run over by a fire truck rushing to the scene. but investigators say they don't know yet if she initially survived that plane crash. and more problems for boeing 787 dreamliner. empty ethiopia airlines plane caught fire on friday. that cause is under investigation. the dreamliner was grounded earlier this year you may remember over concerns of overheating batteries that caused fires. and new information about a rain derailment near paris that killed six people. a faulty connector on a rail switch caused the packed train to jump into a station on friday.
almost 200 people were injured, 9 of them critically. and remember that brave pakistani teen who was targeted by the taliban. she celebrated her 16th birthday with an emotional speech at the united nations on friday. malala yousufzai was shot last year, for promoting education for girls in her country. she spoke to youth leaders from around the world. >> the taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. they shot my face, too. they thought that the bullet would silence us. but they failed. >> very brave girl. malala said that girls and schools in pakistan are still being targeted by the taliban because she says, the taliban is afraid of the power of educated women. and of course, it is july. that means, as always, it's time for the annual running of the bulls in pamplona, spain. in today's run, one person was seriously injured in a stampede
by people racing ahead of the bu bulls. and on friday, three people, including one american were gored by bulls. they all survived. the tradition was made famous in the ernest hemingway novel, "the sun also rises." i always wanted to. but maybe not. >> i went there and watched. >> you watched? >> why am i surprised you watched? >> i concerned it a journalistic act. >> was it cool? >> cool might not be the word. >> frightening? overseas now, fugitive spy edward snowden has finally decided on a new home, not far from the moscow airport where he's currently hiding. snowden says he wants asylum in russia and will agree to stop spilling american secrets if he's allowed to stay. but considering all the new pressure from the white house, that's a pretty big if.
abc's kirit radia has more from moscow. >> reporter: edward snowden has finally surfaced. what he is asking for threatens to derail russia/u.s. relations. >> i had a family, a home in paradise. and i lived in great comfort. >> reporter: that's the first a we've seen and heard directly from edward snowden, since he leaked some of america's most sensitive intelligence secrets. >> i also had the capability, without any warrant of law, to search for, seize and read your communications. >> reporter: at a mysterious meeting with human rights activists in the moscow airport on friday, snowden announced he will seek asylum in russia. why russia? he doesn't think he has save passage to asylum offers in latin america. there's no direct flights from moscow to venezuela, nicaragua or bolivia. >> there has to be some kind of a solution. that's that's what makes him --
>> reporter: snowden has been stuck at the airport for nearly three weeks. something he joked about when he was interrupted by one of the airport's frequent announcements. >> i've heard this many times over the last couple weeks. >> reporter: russian president vladimir putin has previously said that snowden can stay. but only on one condition, that he stop harming the united states. the white house is warning russia not to harbor snowden. >> mr. snowden is not a human rights activist or a dissident. he's accused of leaking classified information. >> reporter: president obama himself raised the snowden situation with president puten in a phone call friday night. the two leaders will hold a summit in moscow in just six weeks. u.s. officials have signaled that if snowden is still here, obama may not come. there's no saying how much longer snowden will remain here stuck at the airport. but he's made two things clear. he can't stay forever. and that the ball is in vladimir putin's court. dan and paula? >> kirit, thank you. let's go to a geopolitical story of a different variety
now. in our ally, great britain, this morning, they are on high alert. not because of a security threat. because of the impending arrival of a royal baby. let's go back to bianna in london. they have an elaborate plan to roll out the news when it comes. walk us through it. >> here's what we know. we believe the duchess is due to go into labor, any day, any hour, any minute now, quite frankly. she will be delivering at st. mary's hospital. this is no ordinary delivery. we're talking about a future king or queen of england. so, there are a set of protocols they will be following. the first announcement is when the duchess has been admitted to the hospital. the second announcement will be the birth announcement. and the third announcement will be when the duchess and the baby leave the hospital the day following the delivery. the birth itself will be announced on a creamy buckingham palace head of paper. the baby will be delivered by the queen's royal combigynecolo.
the announcement will be delivered to a waiting driver, and driven to buckingham palace to be posted on the gate. we will know the sex of the child, as well as the weight. most likely not the name yet. and like the late princess diana, kate has chosen the lindo wing at st. mary's, in the private suite, likely to cost up to $15,000. this royal baby will only be the second future monarch to be born in a hospital, following his father, prince william. his or her father. and kate isn't too posh to push. she is hoping for a natural delivery. not planning for is caesarean. most people here are rooting for a girl. why? we've watched two adorable boys, william and harry, grow up before our eyes. and history will be made if kate delivers a girl, since earlier this year the queen and parliament changed the succession law, allowing the first born, even if it's a girl, to take the throne. we also believe that kate's
mother, carol, and sister, pippa, will likely be with kate during labor in the delivery room. they're a close family. and in addition, a royal salute of 41 guns will be fired to mark the occasion when kate does give birth. top baby names, if a girl, alexandra, victoria and charlotte. if it's a boy, it's george. i think daniel and ronald would suit a king, as well. >> i hear the odds being placed on the girl name chardonnay, 250-1. and we know which direction they're probably not going. >> and even higher. >> higher than that, 5,000-1, the odds of bianna. yeah. >> all right. >> i'll take it. >> thank you, bianna. we'll come back to you later in the show. >> i love that he's not too posh to push, either. now, to a scary sum irsighting. frightening shark attack in carolina. a woman bitten while teaching a child to surf is telling her
harrowing story. aditi roy has the story. >> reporter: these pictures capture what was to be a memorable experience, for 10-year-old cassandra calaway. it was unforgettable. but for a different reason. >> i didn't really see the shark. but i saw the fish that the shark was after. >> reporter: she and her 63-year-old instructor, barbara cory, were three to fore feet in murky waters off the coast, when a shark zeroed in on them. >> next thing i knew, something just clamped on to my ankle and started thrashing around. >> she said, a shark just bit her. and to get out of the water. >> reporter: cassandra's mother and brother were nearby. >> my son started screaming, she's been bit. when you look and your child's coming out of the water and you don't know who it is, i prayed a whole lot in those few seconds. >> i was more concerned about getting cassandra in safely. >> reporter: for 30 seconds, she said the shark ripped into her ankle. her little girl got on a surfboard. her brother helping her to
shore. while cassandra's mother ran to barbara. >> i looked down and her ankle was mangled. it was horrid. >> reporter: dr. mark hannah treated barbara, taking these pictures of her puncture wounds. >> this would be a significant bite. >> i was just thankful there was a foot there. >> reporter: cassandra and her mother are thankful, too. >> barbara corey is -- a lifelong hero for me. she saved my children. >> she's such a sweet woman. and she's just amazing. >> reporter: an instructor who may now see as a lifesaver. and barbara says the shark attack won't scare her away from the water for good. but it will take her some time until she's back to surfing. her doctor tells us it will be five months before she is fully recovered. she's been doing it for 50 years. >> boy. >> and in shallow water, no less. >> thank you, aditi. time, now, for the weather. let's get it to ginger zee, who is outside this morning. >> good morning, guys. it's sticky and a muggy start to
