and why didn't he run for his life? details this morning about his wild encounter, only on "gma." and good morning, america. as we come on the air, look at this live picture right now. a sinkhole down in florida around tampa. and it's continuing to grow at this hour. power to the area has been shut down. part of the neighborhood has already been evacuated. you see a lot of houses in danger right there. one of the houses, right on the edge. >> it's so frightening when you see that happening. and we have a big event ahead for you this morning. one woman, somewhere in this great country, about to get the surprise of her life. our glam squad just outside her front door. >> we asked for your pictures on
instagram. they poured in across america. now, meet the deserving wife and mom about to go glam. and she has no idea what's about to happen. >> lara's taking one for the team. >> i got george today. if i look extra fabulous. thank you, george. we're going to start right now, with a breaking story on the secret service. new allegations this morning of inappropriate behavior by the agents that protect the president. this comes on the heels of the prostitution scandal a year and a half ago. abc's pierre thomas has been working the story overnight and has much more for us. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. according to sources familiar with the case, a supervisor assigned to obama's security detail, met a woman at a hotel and ended up back in her room. the woman noticed the agent had a gun and became uncomfortable. he explained to her that he was not a danger. disconnecting the clip from the gun and removing a bullet to
make sure she understand stood he was not a threat. but the woman was still uncomfortable. and he was asked to leave. at some point, hotel security game aware of the incident. but there was a problem. the agent realized he left the bullet in the room and wanted to retrieve it. security would not let him go up there and later found the bullet himself. no charges were filed. but the hotel security contacted the secret service and here we are. >> as the secret service looked into these allegations or accusations, where did the investigation lead them? >> reporter: the agent has been identified. and he's been removed from the president's detail, pending a final review. since the prostitution scandal in 2012, there's been zero tolerance for any behavior that could compromise agents. as they looked into his background, they checked his workplace e-mails and found a number to a female agent that could be considered inappropriate. they're reviewing the female agent's e-mails as well as that of another agent to determine if those e-mails were inappropriate. thanks very much, pierre. >> and more likely to come. we get to the latest troubles now for obama care.
the first official figures are out. and the number of americans signing up for insurance on healthcare.gov, far below the president's hopes. he may support changes as early as today. jim avila is on point at the white house. and, jim, the pressure for change continues to build. >> reporter: that's right, good morning. the white house is under pressure from its own party. senate democrats expected to urge president obama to honor his famous words, if they like their plan, they can keep their plan. the president's signature achievement, health care for everyone, officially got off to a resounding thud. the first month of enrollment, crippled by a website that did not function most of the time. entice a mere 106,000 people to select a plan. and only 27,000 signed up through the federal government's healthcare.gov site. far short of the 500,000 the administration had hoped for in
the first month. and the 7 million by the march deadline. prompting presidential spokesman jay carney to lowball expectations just before the numbers were released on wednesday. >> i can only tell you we fully expect the numbers will be even lower than anticipated because of the significant challenges caused by the website. >> reporter: republicans seizing on the botched rollout. >> this was a monumental mistake. >> reporter: to claim, it's not just the website. government cannot provide health care. >> when you look at obama care, frankly, i don't think there's a way to fix it. >> reporter: and those disappointing enrollment figures not the only eye-popping numbers to come out yesterday. when asked about the cost of what that website is, so far, the chief accountant said $600 million. now, to put that in perspective, that's four-times what apple paid to develop all of our iphones. george? >> okay, jim. thanks very much. let's get the day's other top stories from josh. >> hi, george. we're going to begin with some breaking news.
we saw it at the top of the show. several homes near tampa being evacuated right now because of the sinkhole that opened up. crews evacuated at least seven homes overnight after reports that one home was, in fact, collapsing. sinkholes, are common in this area. in recent months, we've seen the devastating toll they can take. no injuries have been reported here. and of course, we will keep you posted throughout the morning. and a big boost overnight for relief efforts in the philippines following that monster storm. the "uss george washington" has arrived to the island. aid workers say a logistical nightmare that prevented food and water from getting to the neediest people are almost over. two airstrips are open. and a road has been cleared to the hardest-hit areas. but the suffering remains extreme. it could take weeks before power is restored. the official death toll has topped 2,300 people. again, we will keep you updated here as well. and an accidental explosion at camp pendleton in california has left four marines dead.
the victims were bomb technicians conducting a safety sweep on a training range. seven marines were killed in a similar accident in nevada earlier this year. would you turn down $3 billion? two young men who recently started a social media company just did. they rejected a huge buyout offer from facebook. and abc's rebecca jarvis has much more here. rebecca, good morning. >> reporter: can you imagine, josh? the name of the company is snapchat. you may not have heard about it. but i'll bet your teenager has. it allows you to send pictures and videos that disappear after they've been viewed, typically within ten seconds. many parents worry it gives teens an easier way to send sexually explicit photos. but its popularity has taken off. still, the company hasn't made any money yet. until recently the 23-year-old ceo and his co-founder, they
were working out of a beachfront bungalow in venice beach. the fact that facebook was willing to spend $3 billion, shows how critical it is to attract teens. 3 billion is not enough. the former founders think they can do better. either the gutsiest or dumbest move ever. >> that's true, rebecca. one or the other. as i rethink so many choices i made in my life. thank you, rebecca. meanwhile, in connecticut, more than two dozen people were injured when a police cruiser slammed into the city bus here. sending the passengers in that bus flying. the officer had been responding to a call. a truck near the intersection may have blocked the bus driver's view. and a disaster during the morning commute here. a dump truck entering a busy tunnel in sydney, australia, with its container still up in the air. did you really need the video to see what happened next? scraping along as it finally gets stuck. the damage being described as extensive. the traffic being described as much worse.
good thing not to be in sydney this morning. >> the driver didn't know that was happening. he was reaching for his glasses and it kind of just -- oops. >> it happens. >> thanks, josh. we're going to turn to the man who is the most embattled mayor right now, rob ford of toronto. he admitted to smoking crack, buying drugs, falling down drunk in office. the act was caught on tape. but the mayor vowing to keep his job at a stormy city council meeting yesterday. ben joins us this morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. city council meetings rarely make national, let alone international headlines. but yesterday, all eyes were on toronto's city hall and the world's most talked about mayor, rob ford. and the spectacle did not disappoint. >> mr. mayor, have you purchased illegal drugs in the last two years? >> yes, i have. >> reporter: if you thought that
was the most walk awkward moment of mayor rob ford's appearance in front of city council, you would be wrong. >> are you saying you have violated the council code of conduct? >> in what respect? >> i'm asking you a question, sir. >> in what respect? >> i'm asking you a question. >> reporter: from denying reports he visited a crack house. >> actually, you're not being truthful. >> i'm not being truthful? have you been in that house? >> i have no interest being in that house. i'm not a crack user. >> reporter: distorting his colleagues insistence he step down and seek help. >> have i done drugs? yes, i have. it's self-inflicted. >> will you get help? >> i'm not an addict of any sort. so, i'm not quite sure why you're saying i need help. >> reporter: ford was in full-on fighting form, repeatedly apologizing. >> i made a mistake. i'm human. >> reporter: but not backing down. >> absolutely not taking a leave
of absence. >> reporter: while it may seem the world is against him, his brother, counselor doug ford, leapt to his defense. >> none of you have done anything wrong, ever? have you? ever. ever. the question is, have you ever smoked marijuana? have you ever smoked marijuana? everyone should be careful about throwing rocks. >> counselor -- >> i'm moving on. you guys can do what you want. i apologize again. i'm sorry. that's all i have to say. >> wow. not only is the mayor moving on, he told that council which has to be the most gripping city council meeting i've ever seen, that he's going to run for re-election next year. his approval rating has jumped since the story first broke.
what's going on with that? >> well, his supporters known as ford nation, might not be what it used to be. in a recent poll, 76% of torontonians said, they want him to take a leave or absence or leave altogether. he placed third for mayoral candidate for an election that will take place next year with about 20% of the vote. >> thanks for bringing us that. now, to a lawsuit by an ohio man, who says his wife's work as a hospital nurse led to the fatal car accident that killed her. she fell asleep at the wheel after a long shift at the hospital. he claims understaffing was to blame. abc's alex perez has her story. >> reporter: this morning, jim jasper is adamant that the hospital where his wife, beth, worked as a nurse, worked her to death, literally. now, he's suing that hospital. >> they cannot expect the nurses to work under these conditions. >> reporter: driving home after a 12-hour overnight shift, at jewish hospital in cincinnati, beth was killed when she crashed into a tree. >> i lost my best friend of 21 years.
my wife of 14. >> reporter: jim believes his wife was so tired, she fell asleep at the wheel. the lawsuit alleges that during beth jasper's final shift at the hospital, she complained to others that she was really stressed and hadn't eaten. also, as a result of understaffing, nurses at jewish were often required or asked to work through breaks. extra shifts and stay late. according to the lawsuit, jasper's supervisor alerted her superiors that she was being worked to death. >> she had just told the upper management, the hospital staff, these are unsafe conditions. for the patients. for the nurses. >> reporter: in a statement, the hospital would only say. our hearts go out to the family. we do not comment on pending litigation. the american nurses association says a nationwide shortage of nurses has created a dangerous situation. according to the ana, one in ten nurses say they were involved in an exhaustion-related car accident. >> they're going to have to show
that it would be reasonably foreseeable that the actions of the employer, would lead to the death of the employee. that's going to be very tough to prove. >> reporter: but jim, who is now raising their two children alone, says he's ready for his day in court. for "good morning america," alex perez, abc news, chicago. >> incredibly tragic. >> really is. >> lara? one month from today marks the first anniversary of the sandy hook school shooting in newtown, connecticut, where 20 students and 6 educators lost their lives. but even more, the memory of that day, has not been enough to stem the tide of gun violence in this country. this morning, a group of sandy hook parents are launching a new initiative. one they say will hopefully fight violence with love. time and again over the course of the past year, gun violence, happening in schools, happening in malls. >> we had heard there was a shooting. >> five victims.
>> reporter: how is that for you to witness, given what you've been through? >> it's -- when that happens, your heart bleeds because you remember exactly what it was like for you. >> reporter: nicole's 6-year-old son, dylan, and david wheeler's 6-year-old son, benjamin, were 2 of the 20 children gunned down at sandy hook elementary. what's the most frustrating thing that you've had to learn over the course of the last year? >> how completely disconnected our legislative system seems to be from the opinions of the american people. >> reporter: the gun bill, drafted in response to newtown, was voted down in the senate. but that has not diminished the determination of these families. >> i will do whatever it takes to keep another father from having to go down this road of loss and despair and grief. >> reporter: almost a year after their lives were forever changed by gun violence, they're now asking all of us to simply parent together. the goal is to find common sense solutions to gun violence and mental health issues.
and celebrities have gotten onboard. creating this new psa. >> parent together today. >> reporter: parents, too, have taken the pledge. thousands of moms and dads across the country. >> i promise. >> i promise. >> i promise to parent together for the safety of all our children. >> it's a promise. it's a commitment to say, it doesn't matter what your politics are, what your religion is, what your financial situation is. it's basically saying, all of our differences don't matter if we put our children first. that's the way to start having real conversation and make change. >> and if you want to make the promise, go to goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! george, they are so determined. >> such a powerful idea, parent together. thanks. very different story coming up right now. wild encounter in north carolina. a photographer had a rare time with an elk, emerged from the woods, looking for a sparring partner. it was all captured on camera.
john muller has this story. >> reporter: james york a north carolina photographer, knows exactly how to get the great shot. even if it means going head-to-horn with an elk. >> he came up peacefully enough. he was grazing alongside the road. i was hoping he would take a little sniff and move away. but he didn't. >> reporter: the elk, at times, seems almost playful, nuzzling york. but becomes increasingly antagonistic. >> he was lowering his lornes down and coming at me, and that was fairly aggressive. i think i didn't show him fear. >> reporter: under attack, he manages to get beauty shots. >> he has his head cocked to the side and horns down. his eyes are locked right on me. it tells the story right there. >> reporter: york considers himself a lucky man, claiming the elk took him for a buck and not a cow. he treasures the photos and jokes he was well-equipped to take on the elk. >> everyone says i have a hard head. i'm glad i do.
it came in handy that day. >> reporter: for "good morning america," john muller, abc news, new york. >> did you see the shot of his eyes? i'm not kidding. >> i'm right here. i see you. i see you. >> my horns are sharp. >> the horns, i win. >> wow. >> not a game of chicken i want to play. >> not at all. ginger, in for sam today. boy, it's still cold up here, huh? >> it is. it's still cold up here. and still cold as far south as georgia. can we look at this picture? come on over here. this is what it looks like south of atlanta. all of that frost on the windows. thanks to wsb for sending in great photos this morning. we're getting them as far as birmingham, alabama. a lot of the places saying, cool, we saw some frost now. it's time to warm up. and we will eventually, but it's not today. early this morning, we have freeze watches and warnings all in blue. austin had a record low. yesterday morning, austin, texas, again, in record territory. we're going to see this end as we start to go near the weekend. here are the numbers.

with those outbursts in the courtroom. that's how her day began. what followed was her testimony about a sexual encounter with alec baldwin, that she says he pursued. genevieve sabourin, caught on camera inside alec baldwin's manhattan apartment building. this lobby surveillance video released overnight shows her moments before her april 2012 arrest for harassing and stalking the actor. the prosecution's final witness wednesday, baldwin's doorman. he testified when sabourin showed up that easter sunday, hilaria baldwin told him she was a stalker. sabourin was real mad, he said. and started to say that she, hilaria, was an expletive and a prostitute. so he stalled her until police showed up. >> that's how they treat normal people. they use force, and they use fear. >> reporter: this morning, sabourin is in jail. a judge sentencing her to 30 days for contempt of court, after her continued outbursts in court on wednesday. in her, at times, tearful and rambling testimony, she asserts
that she and baldwin began a flirtation in 2000. after meeting on the set of "the adventures of pluto nash." >> it is a pleasure to meet me! >> reporter: and just after valentine's day 2011, a year before he married his current wife, hilaria, she says they met again in new york city. according to sabourin, baldwin told her, i want to make sure you have the night of your life. and says at the end of that night, they had sex at this new york city hotel. the neck next morning, she said, he told her he wanted to wake up every morning next to her and make her an omelet every day for the rest of her life. sabourin did concede that afterwards she sent him a lot of e-mails. but she insisted, i never intended to harass or annoy. and she admitted going to his long island home the weekend he proposed to hilaria. but said she was only seeking
closure. sa sack ron /* /- sabourin completed not guilty. >> are you a stalker? did you stalk him? >> reporter: baldwin denies he ever had sex or a relationship with sabourin. and the baldwins, they witnessed none of this. they didn't attend the trial wednesday. but they'll be monitoring it today, when following lawyers' summations, the judge is expected to hand down the verdict, possibly just a few hours. sabourin faces a maximum of 90 days in jail if she's convicted of all five counts of stalking. that would be on top of the 30 days she's gotten for contempt. dan abrams is here to weigh in on this. there's not a jury, the judge, that will decide the contempt charge. how will that possibly factor in. >> technically, it's supposed to be separate. it's a entirely separate charge. as a practical matter, it has to be connected. this is the same judge who is going to be deciding her fate. she is accused of stalking and harassing. she's effectively harassing the court at this point. so, to think this is going to be completely separate, i think would be foolish. you can count on the fact that her lawyer has to be furious at her that she kept yapping away in court. >> she couldn't help herself.
it seemed that way. how important is it, whether or not she did have a romantic relationship with alec baldwin? >> whether he was promising to make her omelets every day or whether she was the omelet of the day, the bottom line is, whether they had a romantic relationship, this thing is not going to be, shall we say, over easy for her, even if they did. thank you. thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. i'll be -- i'll be at the performing arts center on thursday and sunday. >> dug in deeper after the omelet of the day. >> the bottom line is, that you still could have had a relationship. she could have been involved with him to some degree. and that doesn't change the fact that she could have been harassing him and stalking him. the legal question there, would a reasonable person in his position have felt threatened? and what was her intent? was her intent to annoy? harass? et cetera. she's in big trouble here as a legal matter. these are not that serious crimes. you heard misdemeanor up to 90
days. but i think it's going to be very unlikely the judge will rule in her favor. >> we're going to find soon. you're going be pelted with eggs in just a moment. >> baked or fried. >> thank you for that. we have an update on the deadly cougar attack at an or oregon wildlife sanctuary. the 911 call came after the head keeper was found in the cougar's cage. as we learn from the victim's mother that her daughter had been concerned about safety. clayton sandell has the story. >> reporter: it is hard to listen to. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: the moment wildcat haven sanctuary owner mike tuller frantically dials 911. the head keeper renee radziwon-chapman is badly hurt. >> i have a keeper at wildcat haven that was attacked. i think she's dead. please hurry. she's in the cat enclosure. i'm going down to get her out if i can. >> reporter: two cougars roam near her body. one, police say, has blood on its nose. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> i don't want you to get hurt.

but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but 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. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, 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 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, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

>> i'm so lucky to work with greg and andrea every day. it ain't pretty when it comes in. but they've been working so hard. we're going to give lauren a brand-new look. and a new outlook. >> and i knew something was up when greg was getting a hair cut here. he's going to be on camera. >> the stylist was getting a hair cut? we can't wait for the big reveal. we can't wait for this. our next guest is an emmy and golden globe winner for his outstanding performance in the acclaimed series "homeland." he plays a u.s. marine held captive for eight years in afghanistan. this season, he's been on the run. he is kind of wanted around the world. where is he? where is he? he's here with us. damian lewis is here. oh. >> that --
>> we should say this. just spoiler alert. spoiler alert. so, if you are binge-watching the show, just mute it. it's going to end with a flourish. >> we're not going to give away too much. speaking of that, i told the guys here a couple months ago, i binge watched one weekend. i came in one morning, watching the first two seasons. and it's such a heck of a show. >> you can binge. >> it's impossible to turn away. is it like that for you? >> a little bit. the only reason i had to turn away is to not be in a few episodes to grow this mustache. >> we're going to let everybody know about the mustache in a little bit. it is amazing, damian, because your character, there's reason for us not to pull for you. but people love you. i know. what is it about this character? >> i can see one or two -- but i
think the reason people like brody is because he's essentially trying to do the right thing. and he keeps doing the wrong thing. he makes bad choices trying to do the right thing. and i think, you know, just a testament to the skill and the writing. they basically, they draw together all these story lines. so, just the point when you should be hating brody, you're shooting for him because he is placed in a moment of tension. are they going to catch him? is he going to be away with it. and it's fun to be with someone if they're trying to get away with something. even if it's blowing up the vice president. >> i'm a couple behind right now. the last time i saw you, no hair. about to become a smack addict. another bad choice. >> bad choice. i think brody, you know, if you just wind back seven or eight years, at the moment brody decided to go to war and fight for his country, at that moment, the wheels fell off. at that moment, he was taken captive. and was incarcerated and brutally tortured psychologically and physically.
from that moment until this point, his life has been fairly exhausting. >> fair to say. he sits in a hole in caracas. and just the moment when the needle looks attractive as an option. >> behind the scenes, a little intel. you are quite the song and dance man. and you and mandy sometimes like to break out a show tune on the set. >> you know mandy likes to break out a show tune. he heard me singing "agony," a song from "into the woods," the only musical i've ever done. and he said, i do that on my show. come over here. let's practice. so, we went into my congressional office, in season two. and while they were setting up
the camera, we were singing "agony" together, in harmonies. with him correcting me quite a bit, for getting notes wrong. >> quickly, this is true. obviously taken the country, the world by storm. we were there the night you won the emmy. and the show arrived to a degree. what's it like when you find out president obama loves the show? and you sit with him. and you have those moments of interaction? >> it was an -- it was an extraordinary moment. actually, it became public in "the new york times." and everyone realized around the world, that your president was sitting down and watching "homeland." i sat with him -- opposite him at the same table at a dinner at the white house, which is extraordinary. i was sure i would be next to the toilets. i was at the table opposite the president. and i asked him when he watched the show. he said, saturday afternoon. i tell michelle, i'm going into my office to work. >> there you go. >> and i watch "homeland." that's what he's watching
saturday afternoon. >> explain the mustache. >> i'm about to do a movie, playing a german, a war hero in 1915, who died in italy. so, i'm trying to get a handlebar mustache going. but it's also for movember, for prostate cancer awareness. and gentlemen around the world, grow a mustache. >> you look good. >> is it okay? >> does your wife like it? >> my wife does not like it. >> there she is. you make it look good. we know you're a great ping-pong player. but we ran out of time. lara and i were going to challenge you. >> maybe in the break. >> maybe we will. >> let's ping and pong it. let's do it. >> if you ping and pong it.

the blockbuster story, "the dark world." and getting oscar buzz for a different role, the legendary nelson mandela. in "mandela: long walk to freedom." take a look. >> i have challenged the idea that a free and democratic society, where all persons live together, in harmony with equal opportunities. it is an ideal which i hope to live for and achieve. but if need be, it is an ideal for which i am prepared to die. >> you see the power of the man right there. idris elba right here. thank you for coming back. >> good morning, man. >> i love this anecdote. i heard that nelson mandela saw a clip of the film later in the film. and he thought it was a news clip of nelson mandela. >> there's a scene where i'm walking. you can't see my face. but he's got the shirt. and i'm walking up a hill. and he looked up and said, is that me? how did you do that?
i took that as a compliment. >> i would certainly take that as a compliment. but it has to be so intimidating. nelson mandela, one of the most recognized people in the last century, a hero. how do you get inside that? >> i mean, you know, what you don't do is kind of get nervous by that. even though it is nerve-racking. but just had to embrace it. i wanted to do a good job. i didn't want to do an impersonation of him. i wanted to do an interpretation of him. the audience go along, knowing that i don't look like him. but you know, they're going to watch this performance. it was such an honor, as well. a real honor. >> i'm sure it is. and one of the things you do because it does cover the breadth of his life, you see the transformation of the man. >> i start in his 20s. look at me. and i end up in his 70s. and there's a long, sort of mapped out journey of his life. but it was such fun. we shot it in south africa for
six months. it was great. >> and you spent the night in his prison cell? >> i went to robin island. i wanted to get context of what it was like. if he can spend 19 years in that prison cell. i tried it. i don't want to go back. i can tell you that much. >> can you imagine spending 18 years. >> when i got to the cell, they gave me a cell phone and said, for insurance purposes, you have to have this cell phone. you sure you want to stay? i said, yes, i do. he locked the gate. locked the second gate. locked the third gate. and it was me by myself. i checked the phone and of course, there was no signal. okay. >> the performance is amazing. congratulations. thanks for coming back in.
