7:00 am
good morning, america. the bitter cold is back. temperatures plunging 20 degrees right now during this next freezing blast, as more than 100 fishermen are stranded by a massive whiteout three days in the middle of a lake blocked by blowing snow that wouldn't stop. breaking details on the capture of the world's most wanted drug dealer. just a week after el chapo escaped through a tunnel under his bathtub. how he was snatched in this messy hotel room, breakfast still on the stove. the new video just coming in. new details of the highway miracle caught on camera. the hero aunt who saved her baby nephew on the side of the road now reveals the whole story as we meet baby sebastian this morning. an abc news exclusive. it's over. it's earnhardt! >> and the dramatic end to the daytona 500. a rain delay of more than six
7:01 am
hours and chaos as cars slam into each other on the final turn. nascar's most popular driver, dale earnhardt jr., emerging from the smoke to win. as we say -- >> good morning, america. and good morning, america. hope you all had a good weekend. an exciting weekend for so many. what a farewell to the olympics last night. closing ceremonies in sochi. blockbuster show. circus performances. ballet and classical music. the olympic torch put out. >> congratulations to all. what a show they put on over the last couple of weeks. the overall medal count for team usa, 28. only russia was better. >> very fitting there. also speaking of the host country, showed a sense of humor
7:02 am
in the end. in the closing ceremonies, if if you remember the opening ceremonies and the ring that wasn't. this was actually part of the closing ceremonies last night acknowledging the imperfect perfection of the ceremonies. >> can you picture the guy going to putin saying, trust me, it will work. >> remember, security concerns before the games. thankfully, everything turned out. >> i was just thinking about that. knock on wood. how about the new polar nightmare? temperatures plunging right now. the bitter cold is back, ginger zee? >> nightmare is the word that the majority of us are using. the cold blast in places like the northern planes. look at some of these numbers. millions of us had a break. that springlike weather. d.c., almost 70 on friday. the 60s. look here it goes. wind chill in minneapolis, minus 14. chicago feels like 0. indianapolis 7. and this is after a long winter. that's the thing. the numbers are only 10 to 15
7:03 am
degrees below average when we're talking lows or highs, it still adds on to this epic and savage winter. look at the number. it sticks around for this week, too. the next four mornings, you're waking up early at 4 below in minneapolis. boston in the teens. so we'll have much more in the nation's weather, including fog in houston that could hurt your travel this morning. george? >> winter not over yet. the latest on this weekend's takedown of the world's most wanted man. the mexican drug kingpin and billionaire known as el chapo was arrested without a fight early saturday. and now the u.s. wants him extradited to face charges here. abc's chief justice corespondent pierre thomas is tracking every detail. he joins us now from washington. good morning, pierre. >> good morning, george. today, a real-life villain more like a character in an action movie is in mexico under maximum security. the mexicans have el chapo. the united states government wants him, too. there's no doubt that the u.s. will seek to extradite el chapo because he's caused so much
7:04 am
devastation across this country. he's the leader of a cartel responsible for 25% of all drugs flowing into the u.s. cocaine, heroin, marijuana, the country's top supplier. 80% of the drugs in chicago come from his cartel. there he's public enemy number one. >> he's sometimes called the osama bin laden of drug trafficking. >> reporter: sources tell us that el chapo is responsible for more deaths in the u.s. than bin laden himself. he faces indictment in chicago, san diego, brooklyn and texas. it all ended here in room 401 as el chapo was surrounded by mexican paramilitary. this grainy video shows how they captured him in a messy hotel room without firing a single shot. he was snatched. broken door, breakfast still on the stove. an indication of an abrupt departure. reports of a woman in the room with him, possibly a girlfriend or his wife, a legendary beauty queen. and with that, a legendary villain who escaped prison 13 years earlier in a laundry basket was back in custody.
7:05 am
he narrowly escaped a week earlier in a town 130 miles away from the hotel where he was captured. he slipped out of a bathroom trap door, down these stairs into the underground tunnels. as mexican authorities tried to break down a steel door. fitting for the houdini mastermind drug dealer who had been a step ahead of police for more than a decade. >> el chapo is one of the most creative and business-minded drug traffickers the world has ever seen. catapults, tunnels, airplanes, i mean, you name it he thought of it, and he tried it. >> reporter: there's a long line of u.s. prosecutors who want el chapo. the question is whether mexican officials will release a man tied to 80,000 murders in their country. robin? >> many are waiting to see. thank you. now to the fast-moving events in the ukraine just across the border from the olympics. the manhunt for the ousted president. an arrest warrant was just issued for the man supported by russian president putin. the ukrainian president now on
7:06 am
the run. his vast luxury retreat handed back to the people. the wealth inside, well, staggering. hamish macdonald is there at the presidential compound. >> reporter: welcome to ukraine's hottest new tourist attraction. the gates open in a few hours. there's already a few hundred people waiting here. this place only opened two days ago. already, there's a bike rental. here, security camera footage captured the moment that president yanukovych fled the capital. his empire crumbled. so guards decided to let us in early before the crowds. let's go. it's never that simple when you're in the middle of a revolution. >> i suppose that's what happens when you don't know who is in control. right? president yanukovych was known to be rich. but the wealth on display here is blowing people's minds. inside, gold-plated toilets. outside, the president's own archeological site. it even has roman ruins.
7:07 am
unbelievable. a zoo with pigs and peacocks and this pretty ostrich. these guys were the president's pets. a vintage car collection worth millions, including this 1963 chevy impala. on the water, a replica sailing ship sits waiting. i wasn't sure this could get any more bizarre, but it has. we're now in a cart. this retreat is vast. it's said to have cost some $500 million to build. that seems a lot to the average person here. they earn less than $15 a day. now, with the ex-president effectively a fugitive, the leaders of the revolution want to sell off the estate, auction off everything inside it and give the proceeds to the families of victims killed in the bloodshed over the last few weeks. george? >> that is some sight. hamish, thanks very much. lets get more now from martha raddatz.
7:08 am
u.s. officials actively engaged on all of this right now. the main goal is to keep ukraine together and keep russia out? >> exactly right, george. the u.s. has made it clear that it would be a big mistake for russia to send in troops. if the protests start up again in a significant way, or if the country seems to be out of control or yanukovych tries to stir up trouble in supporters, it's not out of the question that russia would try to take some kind of action no matter what the u.s. says. and meanwhile, a big announcement coming from the pentagon. chuck hagel about to announce his new budget. it projects the smallest united states army since world war ii. >> he will submit a recommendation as part of a budget preview today that would shrink the army to about 450,000 soldiers from a high of about 570,000. there were already scheduled cuts. this goes further than the scheduled cuts. it also is reported to stop the
7:09 am
use of an ailing attack jet. this is the reality of the post 9/11 era. the pentagon does not see feature wars involving massive invading armies. the focus will be on special operations and drones. nevertheless, george, you can expect a big fight on capitol hill. >> no question about that. p thank you very much. let's get the other top stories from josh. we begin in northern minnesota. dozens of ice fishermen have been stranded for three days on a lake after a massive snow drift there trapped them in their ice houses. the snow piled up to seven feet high in some places, buried as many as 100 people in their shelters until the weather finally cleared the way for rescuers to reach them thankfully everyone involved is now home safe. a medical mystery in california. doctors there are reporting more than a dozen cases of a polio- like sickness that can paralyze a child's arms or legs. one mother said her 4-year-old daughter went to reach for a toy and suddenly couldn't move her arm.
7:10 am
doctors have ruled out polio since the affected children have been vaccinated. they say the illness may be linked to a virus there. and crews working now around the clock to clean up an oil spill that's closed a 65-mile stretch of the mississippi river near new orleans. a barge sprang a leak after striking a tug boat. officials are not sure how much oil has spilled. and you might want to get ready to pay more to fill up the car. gas prices have increased some 12 cents a gallon in just the last two weeks, thanks in part to volatility in the global oil market. a major deal that could change the rules of the internet. netflix has agreed to pay comcast for faster streaming of movies and tv shows. this deal reportedly worth millions of dollars comes just as comcast tries to buy its rival, time warner cable. and a sports landmark is no more. 84 charges of dynamite brought
7:11 am
down the venerable outer ring of the minneapolis metrodome. work has halted recently after a beam collapsed there. adios to you. and finally olympic athletes heading home from sochi this morning. after a closing ceremony where performers poked fun at the rather epic fail in the opening ceremony. that fifth olympic ring that wasn't. it paused before it finally sprung open. there was, however, no epic fail for the home country. as we mentioned, they took the overall medal count, 33. the u.s. finishing with 28. russia took the only number that matters to some, the gold medal count. they led the way with 13 as well. but again, as we said, congratulations to the country for putting on a good and safe olympic games. congratulations to the american athletes who made us proud. what a fortnight it was. >> yes. [ applause ] >> yes, all the athletes.
7:12 am
>> you got that right, josh. thanks. now to a mass carbon monoxide poisoning at a restaurant on new york's long island. one person killed. dozens getting sick. this morning we're learning the restaurant wasn't required to have carbon monoxide detectors. mara schiavocampo. has the story. >> reporter: overnight, officials confirming what caused a deadly leak at a new york restaurant saturday evening. >> defective heating equipment in the building. specifically a flue pipe on one of the water heaters failed. >> reporter: it all started with reports that a woman has fainted at the legal sea foods restaurant in an upscale mall on long island. when first responders arrived, they started feeling sick, too. they evacuated that restaurant and two others. >> they were trying to get everybody out as fast as they could. >> reporter: 27 employees and first responders were hospitalized. 55-year-old manager steve nelson, a father of two, was pronounced dead at the hospital. >> he sort of epitomized sort of the family spirit that we have. >> reporter: it's a tragedy all
7:13 am
too common in winter months. >> fire, going to the falls. report of a carbon monoxide alarm. >> reporter: a day later, a similar scare on sunday at this main hotel. seven people showing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning were evacuated and sent to the hospital. while carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless poison, it's effects are quickly felt. including headaches, nausea and dizziness. >> the treatment for people who suspect or know that they have carbon monoxide poisoning are to get themselves out of that environment. get into fresh, open air. >> reporter: despites incidents like the two this weekend, only 25 states require carbon monoxide detectors in certain residential buildings. and most states, including new york, do not require them in restaurants or malls. now as mentioned, this legal sea foods was not required to have a monitor. it didn't have one. the restaurant's owner says detectors will be placed in all
7:14 am
of their restaurants. now speaking of those detectors, experts say it's key they be placed outside bedrooms. it's very important they're able to provide a vital warning to anyone sleeping. robin? >> thank you so much. >> we'll switch gears now to a history-making moment in the nba. jason collins broke through a big barrier last night when he suited up for the brooklyn nets against the lakers becoming the first openly gay player in any of the four major pro leagues. abc's john muller has the story. >> reporter: he played for just ten minutes. there's no doubt jason colin's performance will go down no history. >> an historic moment at staples center as jason collins becomes the first openly gay athlete. >> reporter: the 35-year-old center hitting the floor sunday night as the first openly gay player in any of the nation's four major professional sports leagues. signing a ten-day contract with the brooklyn nets just hours before the game. >> i don't have time to think
7:15 am
about history right now. >> collins remains in for brooklyn. >> reporter: it was his first matchup since publicly coming out in april. at the time he spoke with george about his ground-breaking announcement. >> can you believe it hasn't happened before you? >> that's kind of mind boggling. i never set out to be the first. >> reporter: one person cheering on collins sunday, the man who could become the nfl's first openly gay player. michael sam, tweeting congratulations to my friend. excited to see you do work out there. sam now meeting with the teams that could draft him, telling reporters over the weekend he's focussed on winning, regardless of what teammates or critics might say. >> i know now handle myself. i know how to communicate with my teammates. >> reporter: it's a sentiment that collins echoed. >> the most important thing is that the team got the win. that's all that i've ever cared about. >> i think ultimately it gets back to whether or not this person can help his team. >> reporter: for "good morning america," john muller, abc news, new york. >> and he did his part, too. another big sports story, josh. >> indeed.
7:16 am
>> never happier to see the lakers lose than last night. congratulations to you. >> wow, that's saying a lot. >> yes, we'll turn to some other drama last night. the daytona 500, delayed for hours and hours by rain. when all the drivers got back on the track late in the eve, it was dale earnhardt jr. who emerged victorious. taking the checkers for a second time at daytona. a very emotional win. daytona's longest day ended in victory for dale earnhardt jr. it was the end of a two-year, 55-race losing streak for nascar's most beloved driver. as he crossed the finish line, he told his crew, this is better than the first one. what did it feel like yesterday to win your second? >> you know, it's -- winning the daytona 500 is the greatest feeling you can have as a nascar
7:17 am
driver. >> reporter: earnhardt's second daytona win, the last one coming a decade ago, capped the longest day in daytona race history. thanks to a rain delay that lasted nearly 6 1/2 hours. a tornado warning sent fans fleeing from the stands. drivers waited for the restart. playing basketball, tweeting with fans, going out for pizza. on the air, rain delay caused confusion for viewers. >> throughout the whole six-hour delay, i was totally comfortable. just waiting it out. >> reporter: hundreds of thousands of people across the country thought they were watching nascar great jimmie johnson win the 500. friends and family texted johnson with messages of congratulations. the problem? he was nowhere near victory lane at the time. turns out fox was airing a replay of last year's race, which johnson did win. johnson's rep tells us he was waiting for the race to resume
7:18 am
and watching "the jungle book" with his daughter when he started getting congratulatory phone calls. he tweeted, i hear i won the daytona 500. ha ha. other drivers got in on the joke. nascar itself even tweeted congrats at jimmie johnson, amazing. >> i've dreamed about this since i won the first one. >> i will admit. got me too. >> robin and i were having dinner last night. i looked at the clock. i thought, oh my god, i'm going to be late. there's six laps left. i can't sleep on this. >> by the way, you were late. >> big moment to last night he wins of course a second time at daytona. this is where his father, dale earnhardt sr., lost his life 13 years ago, last night was the first time his 3 car was back on the track as well. all in all, just a remarkable night for dale. we talked to him this morning. he still can't believe it. congratulations to one of the truly great gentlemen. >> big win. >> some more weather now from
