and amazing rescue. the family of four stranded for days when their van gets stuck surviving on halloween candy. but no cell phone to call for help. how they were finally found. good morning, america. happy friday. we're less than a week out from thanksgiving, and so all eyes on the weather and that first snowfall of the season for millions. >> yep. the snowfall in the middle of the country, seeing major weather whiplash. a 60-degree swing. some guys out golfing. that weather to this weather which makes you want to curl up under the sheets and ginger will have more on that. >> it could affect a lot of thanksgiving travel. but first that breaking news for our viewers in the west. officials condition firm that donald trump has offered jeff sessions attorney general, and michael flynn has accepted
7:02 am
national security adviser. that is a key position for a man with a long career in military intelligence, and he has courted controversy on the campaign trail. >> we have also learned that donald trump is set to meet with mitt romney this weekend. martha raddatz has the latest. she joins us. >> reporter: a very big morning in terms of the transition with those key appointments reported a justice, the cia and his national security adviser. the appointment of retired general, mike flynn, of course, one of the most important jobs in the administration, but he has been by trump's side since the beginning. two senior trump transition officials confirm that lieutenant general michael flynn has accepted the offer to be national security adviser. a controversial figure, flynn roused support at the republican national convention with the infamous lock her up chant against hillary clinton. >> lock her up.
7:03 am
that's right. [ chanting "lock her up" ] yeah, that's right, lock her up. >> reporter: and in his book "field of fight" flynn writes "i don't believe all cultures are morally equivalent." also telling abc that jeff sessions has been offered attorney general. >> i would be honored to be considered, and mr. trump will make those decisions. >> reporter: while trump praised sessions, phenomenal record on thursday, in '96, when he was nominated for a federal judgeship, he failed to get confirmed by the senate. he made racially tinged comments. one lawyer he worked with said the senator called him boy and told him to be careful what you say to white folks. sessions denied the allegation. away from cameras overnight, the
7:04 am
-- a west poichbt and harvard law graduate who supported marco rubio. trump also extending an olive branch to former governor mitt romney. transition sources telling abc news the two will meet this weekend, and that romney is under consideration for secretary of state. the meeting coming after months and months leaning from both sides. >> he is playing the members of the american public for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white house and all we get is a lousy hat. >> did you see a guy like this? he didn't like it when i said he choked like a dog. away from cameras overnight, the president-elect also having his first face-to-face meeting with a world leader, meeting with japanese prime minister abe, who told reporters after the meeting that trump is a leader who i can have great confidence in. both senator sessions and congressman pompeo will need to
7:05 am
be confirmed, but mike flynn as national security adviser will not. it can be overstated how important of a role he will play. i have known him for years through covering the pentagon, and he is known as a brilliant intelligence officer, but in this job, he will be advising a president trump on all aspects of foreign and military issues. robin? >> all right, martha. thank you. let's get more on this from our matthew dowd and john cohen. national security official in republican and democratic administrations. let me begin with you as well. as martha pointed out, the general had great successes in iraq and afghanistan, forced to leave the job as defense intelligence agency head early, and caused course >> yeah, good morning, george. yes. general flynn is smart, he's intelligent. he's experienced.
7:06 am
his military and intelligence experience will serve him well in the role of national security adviser, but he's very intense, and he's very forceful, particularly when he's advocating his ideas and he has been known to be somewhat dismissive of the ideas of others. he will have to be very open, very measured in this new role if he's going to be an effective national security adviser to the new president. >> yeah. the job of national security adviser generally seemed to be an honest broker among the various cabinets. let me go to you, matthew dowd. mitt romney, interesting he'll come in for a meeting with donald trump to talk about the possibility of secretary of state. whether that turns out to be true or not, even talking about it, a political boon for president-elect trump. >> yeah. and i'm not surprised thad mitt romney would sit down with donald trump. i think if hillary clinton had won their election that mitt romney would have sat down with hillary clinton if asked. he cares for the country, he loves the country, has to unite. i would be surprised if mitt romney gets an appointment or even takes an appointment, but having a meeting is good. if other thing in related to general flynn, this is a guy unfiltered and very much in the mold of donald trump, shoot from the hip. i'm reminded of donald trump's
7:07 am
appointment so far with steve bannon and general flynn of the kenny chesney song, "better as a memory," all my friends are pirates, that's just who i am. he seems to be assembling a pirate brigade. >> another friend of his, senator jeff sessions. we talked about those allegations of racism that caused him a judgeship 20 years ago and served in the senate 20 years since then. how serious will those be in his confirmations? >> well, the senate gives great deference to the appointments of the president. it's his privilege to make the cabinet the way he wants it. in a split senate this could be problematic for president-elect trump in this appointment in this. sit a question the country is very concerned about diversity, and how the appeals are made and what happened in the campaign, and again, senator sessions could have a real problem getting aprofessionge getting aprofessional ge getting approval by the senate. >> and, john, you served in national security positions during transitions as well and
7:08 am
we're seeing something of a break of protocol with donald trump. he met with the japanese prime minister yesterday and had dozens of phone calls but not going through the normal process of the state department. >> that's true, and it was somewhat unusual and we've seen many unusual things during the course of this campaign in the early stages of this transition. but this is a very important thing to remember, this administration will be taking charge of the government at a time when we are facing significant threats abroad and significant threats at home. they'll be need to be ready day one to handle a crisis. the minute that oath of office has been administered, they own any crisis that impacts the united states. >> john cohen and matthew dowd, thanks very much. much more on the transition this sunday on "this week." michael. >> thank you, george. now let's turn to phillip mena who drew the short straw in the middle of the first snow of the season in sioux falls, south dakota. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: michael, good morning. yeah. that first major snowstorm of the season has arrived here in sioux falls, giant stockpiles of this rock salt about the size of a three-story building at the ready. about 500 tons of this stuff
7:09 am
will be used today to help keep those roads safe. winter is finally here. up to a foot of snow falling in wyoming and colorado. much of it touching down at rush hour. the slick roads and poor visibility leading to dangerous driving conditions. at least two people died in accidents on i-70 near denver. the freeway shut down in both directions. this 15-car pileup caused by a mix of snow and sleet. massive delays at denver international airport. >> we were delayed until 4:00 and then they canceled it and said we'll have to wait till the morning. >> reporter: in wyoming, dozens of accidents as drivers fought to stay on the road on interstate 80. the snow started falling here about an hour ago and it is not letting up. up to ten inches could fall today as this storm heads east. michael. >> all right, thank you, phillip. stay warm and be safe.
7:10 am
ginger, you have more on where the snow is cold is heading next. it's blasting east. you can see this picture out of sturges, south dakota. roads look like this for so many folks and a lot of people hit the road today and air travel for thanksgiving because they have next week off. so this is a big deal with this storm blowing through. brifrd warnings now for parts of western minneapolis. driving along 94 to fargo. that will be travel not advised. just don't do it. give it 24 hours if you can, aberdeen, and snowfall, not just a couple inches. some will get 6 to 12 inches of snow in northern minnesota but even in minneapolis you get the wind gusting to 30, 40 miles per hour, and that's why just west of them, you have that blizzard warning. just a real quick look at the cold because the chill so no joke. feels like 5 in den very. remember we were talking 80? >> out there golfing and all that. okay. whoo. what a difference. >> distant memory. >> thank you so much. now to an alarming confrontation with an arizona police officer caught on camera. the officer seen scuffling with
7:11 am
a woman and then punching her. he now says there is more to the story. our senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, has more. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today an arizona patrolman has been placed on administrative leave after yet another controversial police encounter, as you said, caught on tape. the video is jarring. an officer punching a woman in the face during an eviction. >> hey, you can't hit a girl like that. >> reporter: look again in slow motion. a direct blow to the face. >> punched in the face two times, i was choked. it was just a brutal attack. >> reporter: but the flagstaff police officer, jeff bonar, who apparently has no history of excessive force, claims this is woman, 30-year-old marisa morris resisted arrest kicking and kneeing him in the groin before he hit her. something she denies. the case now under investigation. >> we became aware of this incident primarily through social media. we immediately became concerned. >> reporter: overnight authorities releasing clips from the officer's body camera showing the moments following the tense exchange.
7:12 am
but not the entire encounter. >> stop. >> reporter: police now looking into why the officer did not turn his camera on when the exchange started to get heated. >> i didn't do anything. >> reporter: the case symbolic of the overwhelming prevalence of surveillance cameras and smartphones placing police under even more scrutiny. it's become reflex to pull out their phones and record interactions with police. like we saw here in alabama last november when college students reach for their cameras in unison and later recorded police beating them. back in the arizona case you can hear the bystander recording the video, comforting the woman. >> i got it on camera. >> reporter: it's a complicated case. a classic he said/she said and now police under the microscope must make a judgment call as to whether the officer broke the law. robin. >> hope they get to the bottom of it. all right, pierre, thank you. let's turn to dr. besser and there's a huge mumps outbreak on some college campuses. thousands of cases across the country this year and dr.
7:13 am
besser, mumps seems like a childhood illness. >> right. >> there is a vaccine for it. >> that's right. >> why so many outbreaks? why on college campuses? >> this is a big increase, but the vaccine doesn't protect 100% of people. if you get two doses, which is what you should get, that's going to protect about 88% of people. if you only get one dose of the vaccine, that will protect about 78% of people. so that means on college campuses a lot of people who are still at risk of the mumps and college campuses are disease incubators. i have two kids in college. one had mumps, the other one is always sick. they're living in crowded quarters and sharing secretions and water bottles. it's a place where diseases tend to spread. >> what are the symptoms of mumps? >> so the telltale sign is that swelling of the jecheeks, loss the jaw line, because your salivary glands are inflamed. fever, body aches, all those viral symptoms and most recover fine, though there are some who
7:14 am
will get some swelling of the brain, rarely you can get swelling of the testicles. if you're pregnant it can affect the baby so you want to do what you can to prevent the disease and get two doses of the vaccine and if you're sick stay away from people for at least five days. >> vaccines, five days. >> and try not to share this stuff. you know, campus, there is a lot of the sharing and kissing. there's risk. >> a lot of the kissing. >> might not stop the kissing. >> i know. i talk to my kids. there's no way. it's not going to happen. >> you know what? you'll be answering everybody's questions on twitter. have any questions just ask dr. besser. he'll have the answer for you. >> what are you going to do? >> throw your kids under the bus. >> okay. it's on you now. thanks for that transition. good morning, guys. just hours before president obama arrives in peru the secret service has released pictures of its biggest counterfeit cash bust ever. look at that. $30 million in fake bills linked to a criminal organization in peru along with printing presses. 48 people arrested. peru, by the way, is the top producer of fake american currency.
7:15 am
nearly 200 square miles have now burned as those wildfires rage across the south. parts of georgia haven't seen rain in two months. air quality is so bad there, children are being kept inside during school recess and people with asthma are now being told to close their windows. a dramatic call for help in maryland as a woman was mauled by a bear. she was walking down her daughter's driveway when she was attacked. the bear was apparently protecting its cub. the woman survived by playing dead, but you have to hear this 911 call. >> please come now send someone now. he's broken my arms and my legs. i can't move. and i'm bleeding. and i'm going to die. please hurry. oh, my god, here he comes. please, dear god, no, please dear god, no, hurry, sir. >> ah, she suffered a broken arm. she needed 70 stitches, but she is recovering thankfully.

gma. another update in 30 minutes and always on the news app and abc7news.com. a beautiful look back c'mohappy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding.
7:28 am
don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help. agine a world where instead of rushing to buy we gave thanks for what we already have. at t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods we're closed on thanksgiving because family time comes first. bring back the holidays. friends and family take an extra 20% off. it's time to get ready for the holidays so deck the halls and trim the tree with 50% off holiday décor. dress to impress for the school concert and keep warm with $16.99 hats and $49.99 boots. then hurry home to cozy up for a family movie night. at kohl's, friends and family save a little more with an extra 20% off.

7:31 am
zebra stripes with fox tail on the back. he usually wears a fox tail in his postgame press conference. he transferred the shoes. between him and antonio brown and odell beckham jr., they do great things with their shoes and sometimes pay tribute to whatever the cause is, so shoes are now the new fashion thing for these guys. >> that's true. >> they're the new fashion things? >> i need some foxtails on my shoes. >> we'll move on. different kind of story. murder mystery here in manhattan. we're learning more about two men charged in connection with killing a 26-year-old on the upper east side, and abc's linzie janis is on the scene with the latest. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, george. police say they now know how joseph comunale was murdered and they believe they know who did it. the question they are still working on this morning is why. overnight, two men in court, charged in connection with the murder of 26-year-old joseph
7:32 am
comuna comunale, the connecticut man who vanished after a night of partying in new york city. >> this is more from a missing person's to a homicide investigation. >> reporter: james rackover with a long criminal history and 28-year-old lawrence dilione now facing charges of hindering prosecution and concealing a corpse. >> stabbed 15 times in the chest area, and there was also an effort to burn his body. >> reporter: police believe comunale's body was removed from a luxury manhattan high-rise where rackover lives in this blood-stained luggage cart. >> appears to be bleach on that as well. >> reporter: police say one of the suspects helping them to find the body believed to be comunale's in a shallow grave 55 miles away in new jersey. >> a disturbing crime scene. >> reporter: investigators say comunale met rackover, dilione and three women at a nightclub. the group going back to rackover's apartment in the early hours of sunday morning. >> the motive is undetermined right now, but it would be speculative for me to say it was
7:33 am
anything other that that. other than a dispute of course. >> reporter: rackover shares a name with prominent new york city jeweler, jeffrey rackover, whose clients reportedly include oprah and melania trump, but the two are not related. >> he actually let this young man change his name to his name. you can't adopt somebody over 18 but he let him change his name. >> reporter: friends say jeffrey had been helping the troubled florida man whose name used to be james beaudoin clean up his life. >> this is such a triple tragedy for the young man killed and for james whose life will never be the same and for jeffrey rackover, who thought that he had the son that he never had, and he just can't believe what has occurred. >> reporter: police say they are still trying to determine exactly what happened inside that apartment building. both men still face murder charges and neither are cooperating. george. >> okay, linzie, thanks. let's talk to dan abrams right now. and so the body pretty gruesome story, but body found on wednesday, but we have these arrests already.
7:34 am
it's moving pretty fast. >> it seems pretty clear they had a suspect already targeted. meaning that he was reported missing as of monday. i think they knew where he was. they knew who lived there. they found possible suspect. suspects then at least one of the suspects, leads them to the body. they then find the body, you know, 100 miles away from where this allegedly happened, and that's i think why this investigation is moving so quickly, but trying to assess exactly who was the most culpable one here. >> you have multiple suspects right now. some charges filed but they're going to try to turn one witness against the other perhaps? >> i think they may. i think they want to know who did the stabbing, right? i mean, the theory right now is that this was some sort of fight. some sort of incident that led to this stabbing. so the question is going to be with more than one person in custody, i think they're going to want to know who is the stabber and who was there who may have helped, who may have helped conceal the body, et cetera, and what authorities may want to do in a case like this is they may want to try to cut a
7:35 am
deal with the less culpable person. and say, all right. we'll still charge you. you'll still serve some time but we'll be able to get you out a lot earlier if you're willing to help us and testify against the other person because that person could be a critical eyewitness. we don't know that to be the case right now, but in these kinds of cases, that tends to be what happens. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> so much going on there. now to more on former fox news leader, roger ailes. he was pushed out of his job as you know after being accused of sexual harassment by some of the network's top anchors, but not all of those accusing him were in such high-profile positions. abc's elizabeth vargas is here with one woman's story of what she claims happened. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, robin. laurie luhn worked for roger ailes for more than two decades. rising to director of booking at fox news. she says for much of that 20 years, she was sexually harassed, and intimidated by ails and succumbed to his demands for sexual favors.
7:36 am
luhn's story first exploded onto the pages of "new york" magazine but now sharing even more of it exclusively with us. tell me first of all why you decided to speak out. >> elizabeth, i think that i went through such hell for so many years, i finally felt safe when i saw that other women were speaking up. >> reporter: for decades laurie luhn was one of roger ailes' closest associates. they met when she was 28 years old. working on george h.w. bush's first presidential campaign. ailes already a powerful media consultant. >> i wanted to meet him. i wanted to work for him. i was so excited. i introduced myself to him on the elevator. >> reporter: laurie says ailes invited her for an interview with his firm. >> i think he wanted to gauge what kind of person i was. if i was insecure, if i was looking for a daddy figure. >> he was sussing out your vulnerabilities? >> absolutely and i was real insecure. >> reporter: ailes offered her
7:37 am
work doing research, but according to luhn, it became clear what he wanted when he asked her to meet him at his hotel room one night. >> he came to town periodically and expect me to do whatever he told me to do. >> like what? what would he tell to you do? >> he said that i needed training. >> you needed training? >> reporter: laurie says ailes told her to strip down to her lingerie and dance for him. >> he would have me get down on my knees and tell me, you're going to do whatever i tell to you do at any time. do you understand that? >> reporter: she says ailes then instructed her to perform a sex act on him. >> i didn't question it and that's the big -- that was his big thing. don't ever question anything i ask you to do. >> reporter: according to laurie, that is one night was no abo aberrant incident. it continued off and on for more than 20 years. laurie too afraid to tell anyone. you know people hearing this
7:38 am
will say, why on earth would you go along with this? >> it's not like i was able to go and consult or cry on the shoulder of some friend. i was completely isolated. i was isolated in the workplace. >> what did you think would happen to you if you complained or tried to refuse? >> have you ever seen roger ailes when he's unhappy? it's not a good sight to see. it's pretty scary. >> reporter: toward the end of laurie luhn's tenure at fox news, she filed a complaint against roger ailes, alleging sexual harassment. fox news paid her more than $3 million. roger ailes is releasing his statement to us saying, "ms. luhn is someone i once regarded as a friend and a person who i helped for many years. the stories she is telling are fabrications built on half-truths and outright lies and i can only assume are opportunistically intended to thrust her back into the limelight at my expense." we will have much more on laurie's shocking story on "20/20" including details of the nervous breakdown she says she

7:43 am
yesterday they are talking about it, but next year comes pretty quickly, guys. >> you got news out of o'hare, second busiest airport in the country and workers there voted to strike. what kind of impact did that have? >> reporter: yeah. this is needless to say, leverage for the union right before one of the busiest travel days, so these are airline workers who clean the cabins and do other things at the airport threatening to strike over the holiday weekend. the airlines say if that happens, they'll just bring in additional people. they don't expect a major impact on chicago, but you know this is a hub and spoke, and if things get slowed down here, it can affect the entire system. >> thank you. now to big news from mcdonald's. the fast food giant announcing they're expanding table service to all of its u.s. restaurants, so standing in line for your big mac at at the golden arches could soon be a thing of the past. and nick watt is at a mcdonald's in california right now, and good morning, nick. nick, why the big change for mcdonald's? >> reporter: michael, burger joints are going fancy pants. you got guacamole all over the
