leukemia's amazing dream come true, fighting crime just like batman. capturing the riddler and the penguin. we'll tell you how thousands of people made his unforgettable day happen. good morning, everybody. we have the bat phone on the set here. don't worry. it doesn't have a cord. this is actually a cell phone. this is in case of emergency. we've been instructed to call america's newest superhero. >> that's right. not ron claiborne. but the newest one. 5-year-old miles scott may be needed to save the day once again. you never know. coming up, we'll show you how san francisco was magically transformed into gotham to make this feel-good story, a reality ending with a tiny superhero. there's a chocolate key to the city. >> it's great what they did in
7:02 am
san francisco. we'll tell you about that coming up. we're going to start here with college football player making serious and potentially damaging accusations against a coach at rutgers university. this comes months after a basketball coach resigned. lindsay czarniak is on top of it all. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. bullying in football locker rooms is at the center of the sports world right now because of the accusations that jonathan martin against richie incognito and the miami dolphins. but new overnight, we're learning of another allegation of a rutgers coach going too far with a player. miami dolphins offensive lineman, jonathan martin, faced cameras for the first time since leaving the team because of alleged bullying. >> i do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time. >> reporter: now, a new bullying claim. this one against rutgers university. this morning, news that redshirt
7:03 am
freshman cornerback, jevon tyree, has quit the football team. his family is having that dave cohen be disciplined. jevon, who is the cousin of super bowl hero david tyree, told "the star ledger," that cohen called him emasculating names and threatened to head-butt him during a study hall session. he says the incident took place last april. the same month rutgers basketball coach, mike rice, was fired and the athletic director resigned for this bullying incident. in his first interview since, rice told our robin roberts that he regrets the infamous incident. >> you were a bully. >> there was some actions that were certainly -- that were bullying, yes. >> reporter: now, tyree's family believes that coach cohen deserves the same discipline as rice. his father, mark, told "the star ledger," i really think disciplinary action should happen, almost to the point he should get fired. that's how bad it is. especially for the damage he's done to jevon. >> certainly, it would increase the risk of him developing depression and maybe something even worse.
7:04 am
>> reporter: in a statement, rutgers says the incident had been addressed immediately in april. and that in september, the tyrees agreed they were satisfied. jevon tyree left the program on november 6th. the reason tyree ended up leaving the program, he feels even recently he's been left out of team meetings. also, that he's been passed over for playing time. so, essentially, he feels the bullying is continuing now in a different way. bianna? >> not the kind of headlines rutgers wants to be making. this morning, there's a frightening meningitis outbreak at one of the most prestigious schools in the country, princeton university. and now, an all-out scramble to find ways to stop the disease from spreading. abc's linsey davis is here with the latest. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. the most recent case at princeton was diagnosed last weekend. the number of students diagnosed with meningitis on campus has caused new jersey health officials to declare an outbreak. but it's what the cdc is doing
7:05 am
that's unprecedented. state and federal officials are taking drastic measures to battle the outbreak of meningitis on the grounds of one of the nation's most distinguished institutions. seven cases of the potentially deadly bacterial infection have been diagnosed at princeton university since march. >> it's very serious. >> reporter: so serious, in fact, the cdc is taking the unprecedented move of importing emergency doses of bexsero, a meningitis vaccine not used in this country. the vaccine, only licensed in europe and australia, protects against meningitis b, which is the particular strain the students have been diagnosed with. bacterial meningitis is a dangerous infection of the protective membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. it's spread through respiratory droplets exchanged through close contact, such as coughing or kissing. >> you typically will see someone saying i'm not feeling well. and if a matter of hours or less, they get very sick.
7:06 am
>> reporter: if the plan is rolled out, it could aim to inoculate 8,000 graduate and undergraduate students at princeton. university officials, however, would not say if the vaccination effort would be launched. the cdc tells abc news, the risk for princeton students is quite high. the fda has not approved a vaccine to combat meningitis b here. that strain tends to be more common in europe and australia. symptoms of meningitis typically develop within three to seven days after exposure. so, not right away. they include headache, fever, and stiff neck. they're often mistaken for the flu, which is common right now. but certainly, the campus on high alert. >> going to be vigilant now. scary stuff. linsey, thank you. they are working through the weekend at the white house, with two weeks left to fix the colossal failure known as healthcare.gov. this, as the president is facing an open revolt from members of his own party. jeff zeleny is at the white house. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the white house is scrambling to fix more than a broken website. they're trying to restore their
7:07 am
credibility and prove their competency. this morning, a new challenge for president obama. keeping democrats from jumping ship on his beleaguered health care law. after months of fighting republican criticism -- >> this disastrous law was destined to fail from the start. >> it's cancellation today, sticker shock tomorrow. >> reporter: and a week filled with apologies from the president. >> that's on me. that's something i deeply regret. we did fumble the ball on it. >> reporter: there's anger in congress. >> this is a political charade. >> reporter: democratic anger. running hotter than at any point in the obama presidency. >> this is political theater. what a sham. >> reporter: the president is trying to stop a democratic betrayal. with more than three dozen members of his own party, fighting with republicans friday, to support a plan the white house says would weaken the health care law. we caught up with one of the democrats who crossed the aisle. how disappointed are you in the obama administration for this
7:08 am
mess over the last month? >> some heads ought to roll. >> reporter: at the white house, it's a working weekend. only two weeks left to make good on the president's pledge to repair the health care website by the end of the month. >> we're working 24/7 to get it fixed. >> reporter: he invited insurance company executives to the white house friday, asking for help. >> we're going to be soliciting ideas from them. we want to make sure we get this done. >> reporter: a long week at the white house. but an even tougher road ahead. senior democrats who have spoken to the president tell me, he knows his legacy and his second-term agenda depends on no more fumbles on health care. but, dan and bianna, that is a huge order. >> indeed, it is. let's not forget, millions of americans without health insurance. a lot of other news overnight. so, let's turn to mr. ron claiborne. >> we're going to look at a case of competitiveness gone too far in college sports. virginia state running back, lamont britt has been arrested for allegedly beating up the
7:09 am
quarterback of rival winston-salem state, just two days before they meet for the conference championship. the coach alleges that several of the teammates also took part in the alleged assault. so far, britt has only been charged. the game between the two teams has been canceled. and another record day on wall street. the dow jones dow jones was up 85 points friday, as it closes in on the 16,000 mark. the s&p 500 was also up friday. that made friday the third-straight day of all-time highs for both market indexes. these records cap six-straight weeks of stock market gains. and overseas, china is revising its decades-old rule limiting the number of children that a family can have. the government has announced that it's changing its one-child policy. now, if either parent is an only child, the couple can have two children. the one-child policy, introduced 1979, to control population growth in china. but also became a symbol of communist party control over
7:10 am
people's lives. and a white suburban detroit man who allegedly shot and killed a 19-year-old black woman at his front door has been charged with second-degree murder. he was arraigned on friday on charges. those charges, second-degree murder and manslaughter. prosecutors say he shot renisha mcbride in the face when she knocked on his screen door looking for help after a car accident. he said it was an act of self-defense. mcbride was unarmed. the shooting has raised questions whether it was racially motivated. and in seoul, south korea, a helicopter flew into a high-rise luxury apartment building early this morning, killing two people, including the pilot of that aircraft. the helicopter was flying through dense fog in the city's upscale gangnam neighborhood, when its propeller clipped the side of a 38-story building, causing it to crash. no one in the apartment building, however, was hurt. and finally, a piece of royal wedding cake at a price of some royal watchers may have trouble digesting. a slice of eight-tiered cake
7:11 am
from prince william and kate middleton's wedding was auctioned off in beverly hills this week. the final price. take a guess, bianna? >> $4,000. >> that's a very good guess. >> i rounded. i rounded. >> $4,160. the auction house hasn't identified the winning bidder or who managed to swipe the cake and hold on to it for 2 1/2 years. >> and keep it together. >> yeah. i don't know what you do with a 2-year-old piece of wedding cake. >> you put it in the freezer. >> eight tiers. >> can you tell us more about cakes? >> please, go on. i will go on. we're going to turn to the bizarre story in florida, where the pilot radioed in a panicked alert, stating that a passenger fell out of his plane. the coast guard has called off their search for the man. but we are now learning more about who he was and how this could even happen. abc's tai hernandez is here with more. hey, tai. >> reporter: hey, bianna.
7:12 am
after the pilot's unusual distress call, homicide detectives were set to meet him as he landed. but at this point, there's only one known living witness to what happened. the pilot who says his sole passenger simply fell. this morning, we learn new details about the mystery of the passenger who fell from a private plane in mid-air and the pilot who was flying. >> mayday. mayday. mayday. >> reporter: we learned the identities of the passenger, 42-year-old gerardo nales and the pilot, felipe fons, according to wplg. fons recently graduated to be a flight instructor. here he is hours after the tragedy, leaning against a cop car and giving detectives a walk-through of the plane. he was flying the piper off the coast of miami when he radioed that his passenger opened the door and fell 2,000 feet into the atlantic. >> i have a door ajar. and a passenger just fell down. >> reporter: the air traffic controller seemed baffled by the calmness in the pilot's tone.
7:13 am
>> you say you had a passenger that fell out of your plane? >> that's correct, sir. he opened the back door. and he just fell down the plane. >> reporter: authorities have been searching since thursday for the victim, along with any clues that would help them figure out why or how a door would open in mid-flight. police are looking into the relationship between the pilot and passenger. at this point, they have no evidence of foul play. and it may be very difficult to determine exactly how that passenger left the plane at 1,800 feet. >> imagine they don't get cases like this very often. >> i'm sure they don't. thankfully. another story out of florida this morning, the giant sinkhole, that's swallowed two homes already. as they scramble to fill this thing with dirt, there is a big, looming question right now. could all of this have been prevented? steve osunsami is outside of tampa this morning. steve, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. they're already at work here in
7:14 am
the rain, tearing down that second home that nearly fell into that sinkhole. families here who have been struggling with this sinkhole issue for years are beyond frustrated. authorities here, carefully tearing down two of the homes that were nearly swallowed by the sinkhole outside tampa. they are filling the hole with sand. and nearly 60 feet deep, it could take days. >> of course, i'm upset. i mean, that's our house. >> reporter: the dupre family is beyond frustrated. they first saw the cracks and heard the creeks in 2011. the insurance company agreed they had a sinkhole. but disagreed on how it should be fixed. the family lost in court. and the work had just started this week, too late to save the home. >> the stress of dealing with it every day. and the stress of having to deal with fighting the insurance company to do the right thing. >> reporter: just a few miles up the highway, the ferraros have a sinkhole growing underneath them. an engineer says their home is ready to collapse. they're fighting their insurance company, too. >> this entire area and our home
7:15 am
could fall into the earth. >> could just collapse. >> with us in it. >> reporter: the experts tell us there are thousands of possible sinkholes waiting to open up under florida homes. and these are just the new ones. more than 250 reports since may of last year. >> right now, we're not getting the support of the insurance companies. and we're not getting support of elected officials. >> reporter: one solution insurance companies use is to drive cement deep into the ground around a home with a known sinkhole lurking below. this morning, families across florida are racing to get this work done. hoping this won't happen. the insurance company here says the homeowners here are somewhat responsible. dragging this out in court. the homeowners whose houses are being dumped in this hole this morning will most likely be filing a claim for a new house. bianna? >> like a ticking timebomb for those residents. steve, our thanks to you. before you take a bite of
7:16 am
your morning toast or bacon, you're going to want to pay attention to our next story. there's a new medical warning from the fda, about how we prepare some of our favorite foods with a possible link to cancer. dr. richard besser is here with more. this is a chemical that's called what? >> acrylamide. and it's in all of our foods, especially when you cook it in high temperatures. it's a reaction between the sugars and the proteins. the main foods are plant-based foots. potatoes, hash browns, the grains that go into your toast and your coffee. the number one food is french fries. especially when you cook them really dark brown. people like their toast crunchy, why is that harmful? >> the more you cook it, the higher the level of acrylamide. it can have twice or three-times as much acrylamide in there. >> folks at home to have breakfast, what is your advice to them? >> acrylamide has been linked to
7:17 am
tumors in mice. the evidence of linkage to humans is not very strong. but the fda says it's worth taking action. they're trying to help industry reduce it so it doesn't get to your table. in terms of your own food, don't cook your toast quite so dark. go for the light brown. don't go for french fries that are so dark. but the big thing is what we talk about around food. it's have a varied diet. rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein. if you do that, you're never going to take in enough acrylamide. don't become one of the kids that only eats french fries? >> why am i not surprised that you're not advocating french fries every day? >> occasionally. >> variety. >> variety. >> thanks for coming in, doc. moving on, now, to a very different sort of story. we have breaking news right now, as you can see behind us. the bat signal has gone out in times square. does that look real? >> it looks real enough. officials in new york are looking for help from america's newest superhero. a 5-year-old who took san
7:18 am

7:31 am
graham looks composed as she entered a montana courthouse friday morning to ask a judge to throw out charges that she murdered her husband, cody johnson, just eight days after their wedding. in court documents, graham says she was only attempting to brush away her 25-year-old husband's arm, after he grabbed her during an argument, not push him off a cliff, as she's been accused of doing on the couple's honeymoon in glacier national park. >> the difference between what she says happened and what authorities say she said before is enormous. >> reporter: in court friday, graham said the fbi agent who first questioned her, put his hand on her knee and made her feel uncomfortable. the agent told the court, he was showing respect to a distraught graham when he touched her leg during the interview. graham's attorney also argued that agents distorted her words in a taped confession. only recording the second half of the conversation. >> we've now heard the heart of the defense, which is i never said that. that's not the way that it happened. but that's an argument to make
7:32 am
in front of a jury. >> reporter: also in court, federal prosecutors told the judge they believe a piece of cloth found near johnson's body, may have been used to blindfold him. >> as far as we know, no one is actually alleging yet that he was wearing a blindfold. when he went over that cliff. >> reporter: calling the theory speculative, the judge says he doesn't plan to further delay the december 9th trial while investigators conduct more dna testing on the cloth. a judge denied graham's motion to drop the charges. she is accused of first-degree murder and second-degree murder, and making a false statement to authorities. our legal affairs anchor dan abrams summed it up like this. he said authorities have her confession that she pushed him off. they know that there were problems in the marriage. the big question is, what exactly did she confess to? that's what she's arguing about now. >> the bottom line is, this trial is going forward. >> it's going forward.
7:33 am
>> thank you. a lot of other news overnight. as always, we turn for that to mr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. in the news, a new football bullying allegation. the time involving rutgers university in new jersey. freshman cornerback, jevon tyree says he quit the team after defensive coordinator, dave cohen, in his words, called him emasculating names and threatened to head-butt him. the family is asking for cohen to be fired. and jpmorgan has agreed to a $4.5 billion settlement friday over investor losses from shaky mortgage-backed securities sold by that bank. altogether, jpmorgan will have to pay off $20 billion to settle mortgage lawsuits and investigations. and jay z has ended his silence about allegations of racial profiling at barney's in new york, the clothing store. in a statement, he says he will review jay z of the store's policies. he will continue to collaborate with the retailer on his new collection. there was public pressure for jay z to pull out of that deal, after two black customers
7:34 am
separately accused the store of racially profiling them. and the holidays came a bit early for several walmart shoppers who showed up at midnight to buy the new playstation 4 console. as it went on sale, dallas cowboys wide receiver dez bryant was one of those waiting in line. once he got inside, he bought one not just for himself but for several of the people who were waiting in line with him. at 400 bucks a pop. very nice of him. time, now, for weather and over to ginger zee. >> let's go to chicago and see a live shot. they are going to be warm and windy today. waking up in the 40s. that's an average high. low-lying clouds and fog there by the lake. the high, 56 in chicago, will be ahead of the warm front. and the storms we were talking about, which will end up just north of kansas city. close to 70. st. louis, 68. here's what else i wanted to show you. we focused in on the moderate risk before. there's a slight risk of severe storms all the way from northern wisconsin to mississippi, alabama, georgia and the

another day, another alec baldwin meltdown. just one day after using a gay slur when cursing out a photographer. >> the actor sets his sights on a local tv reporter who apparently once had a run-in with baldwin's wife. abc's rob nelson is here to sort it all out. sort it if you can, rob. >> reporter: it's a mess, as always, isn't it? this is a very interesting story here. alec baldwin, having a run-in with the press is certainly not a new headline. but what is different this time around is the reason behind the drama. a fender-bender on a city street. and now, even the temporary suspension of baldwin's cable news show. >> [ bleep ] out of here. >> reporter: alec baldwin caught on camera. >> back up. >> reporter: taking his public blowouts with the press, to a whole, new level. trying to get in his car outside his new york apartment on friday
7:41 am
with his wife and 3-month-old baby, the famously hot-tempered actor got in the face of a female new york tv reporter, who his wife says hit her in the face with a microphone a day earlier. >> you're the one that almost hit my wife with a microphone in the face? i asked you a question. do you want to apologize to her? >> reporter: baldwin brings over nearby cops, demanding they take action. >> i do want to press charges against her. she assaulted my wife. >> reporter: the ruckus didn't stop there. as baldwin bangs into another car as he tries to leave his parking spot. friday's blowup is just the latest of a string of caught on camera tirades, by one of hollywood's most notorious hotheads. he caused an uproar by allegedly using an anti-gay slur against a photographer. >> come on. >> reporter: which baldwin denies, saying he was misheard. a twitter firestorm erupted.
7:42 am
with gay activist groups and even cnn's anderson cooper chiming in. cooper tweeted, wow. alec baldwin shows his true colors yet again. how is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time? baldwin later apologized. and a longer mea culpa came friday night when baldwin released a statement, confirming his new cable news show has been taken off the schedule through next week. what i said this week as i was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. behavior like this undermines hard-fraught rights i vigorously support. the only bit good news for the baldwins was the conviction of a canadian woman, genevieve sabourin, for stalking and harassing the actor. it was a raucous trial here in new york. and even baldwin gave emotional testimony from the stand. that woman is now serving more than 200 days behind bars. guys, though, never dull in the life of alec baldwin. >> after that trial, tried to lay low-key for a couple of weeks. >> reporter: that didn't last
