>> we put our vote in and the bailiff had taken our vote, that's when everybody started to cry. this morning, the first vote in the jury room that had some jurors ready to convict and the emotions that ran high. from hot to hotter. another day of oppressive and dangerous heat and humidity across a major portion of the u.s. when will it break? and it's twins. a highly anticipated birth
7:01 am
delivers a big surprise. no, not a royal baby but to members of the animal kingdom, twin pandas make their debut at atlanta zoo "today," tuesday july 16th, 2013. >> good morning. welcome to a special edition of "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm savannah guthrie in los angeles. matt and al back in new york. it was so hot there i had to get out of town. >> you did the right thing savannah. you really did. i'm here with al roker and we're having a heat wave. it's official. three days in a row. although it's not so bad out here right now, 83 degrees, it's going to get nasty this afternoon. >> that's right. the heat right now we're in the shade but once the sun gets up everybody is going to start baking. humidity levels, and this extends not just to here in the northeast, all the way to michigan and as far west as the pacific northwest. >> i was driving into new york
7:02 am
yesterday and the car, you know the thermometer that tells you how bad it was outside said it was 103 on the streets of map hat tan. stay where it's cooler. we miss you though. >> but it's a wet heat, right guys? >> yes. >> we'll get more on the heat and humidity in a moment but we'll start out here in the overnight violence in california where a peaceful protest over the acquittal of george zimmerman deteriorated into a heated clash. >> they're beating somebody up and they just robbed somebody. >> reporter: the lapresident went the lapd went on tactical alert after 150 people took to the streets of southwest los angeles overnight vandalizing businesses and attacking bystanders. >> unfortunately the rights of the many have been abused by the actions of a few. >> reporter: protests across the city started off peaceful until a small faction of violent protestors swarmed motorists jumping onto cars and shutting
7:03 am
down major intersections. l.a. new mayor, eric garcetti, said the mob sought to exploit the acquittal of george zimmerman in the shooting death of florida teen trayvon martin. >> the martin family was clear that those who sympathize with their plight, the best way to honor their son and their loved ones is in a nonviolent manner. >> reporter: a local reporter and cameraman were assaulted while covering the unrest. a photographer was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. in the meantime we are learning new details about what lead to george zimmerman's acquittal from the first member of the jury to speak out. nbc's kerry sanders is in sanford, florida. he has that part of the story. kerry, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. juror b37 who lives somewhere here in seminole county sat down and did an extensive interview with cnn. in that interview that lasted more than 30 minutes she said that when the six jurors went into the jury room, one believed that george zimmerman was guilty of second-degree murder. two thought he was guilty of manslaughter and three believed
7:04 am
george zimmerman was not guilty. juror b37 sat in silhouette talking to cnn's anderson cooper about the weight of the jury's decision. >> it's just hard thinking that somebody lost their life and there's nothing else that could be done about it. i mean, it's what happened is sad. >> reporter: b37 is the first of the six jurors to speak, revealing how she says the jury concluded when george zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old trayvon martin, it was not a crime. >> it's a tragedy this happened, but it happened. and i think -- i think both were responsible for the situation they had gotten themselves into. i think both of them could have walked away. >> reporter: george zimmerman
7:05 am
was armed with this keltech .9 millimeter pistol. b-37 once had a concealed weapons permit. her husband, she said, owns a gun. zimmerman fired a single shot that pierced martin's heart and lung. in a defense animation, lawyers argued that trayvon martin first punched george zimmerman and the two fought. >> because of the heat of the moment and the stand your ground and he had a right to defend himself. if he felt threatened that his life was going to be taken away from him or he was going to have bodily harm, he had a right. >> reporter: she said in deliberations the jury repeatedly played back the police video tape where zimmerman reenacted what he said happened and they listened over and over again to the 911 phone call with that scream for help and the gunshot. >> so you think he's yelling help. >> yes. >> all right. what is your number -- >> there's gunshots. >> whose voice do you think it was in the 911 call? >> i think it was george zimmerman's. >> did everybody on the jury agree with that? >> all but probably one.
7:06 am
>> reporter: by order of the judge, prosecutors could only say zimmerman profiled martin. they could not say he was racially profiled. so you don't believe race played a role in this case? >> i don't think it did. i think if there was another person, spanish, white, asian, if they came in the same situation where trayvon was, i think george would have reacted the exact same way. >> reporter: in an hln interview monday night, special prosecutor angela corey was asked for one word to describe george zimmerman. >> murderer. >> reporter: in the wake of this verdict that resulted in protests and in some cases, as we have seen violence, defense attorney mark o'mara says, "if someone is hurt because of angela corey's incendiary word, murderer, actions should be
7:07 am
taken to hold her responsible." angela corey was unavailable for further comment, matt. >> all right. kerry sanders in florida this morning. thank you. lisa bloom is "today's" legal analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i'm going to go through the headlines. she said while she thought zimmerman got in too deep, shouldn't have been in that situation, she felt it was trayvon martin who decided to attack george zimmerman prompted the fatal altercation. >> that was the defense theory of the case. zimmerman may have followed or even approached trayvon martin but trayvon martin began the fight by sucker punching him in the face. >> she did not believe george zimmerman profiled trayvon martin. she did not feel that race played a significant role in the situation. >> right. isn't it fascinating how, up to the case and after the case, it's been all about race in the demonstrations, but inside the courtroom, the prosecution team told the jurors this case is not about race. they said that a couple of times. >> you writ about this in an
7:08 am
op-ed in the "new york times" today about this subject. >> in my opinion how they bungled the race issue in the trial. >> all right. the audio tape of the 911 call where there's a scream for help before the gunshot that killed trayvon martin. this juror said "all but one of the jurors believe the voice on that tape calling for help was that of george zimmerman." >> we all thought that the witnesses on both sides would cancel each other out on that, but she was impressed by a former army doctor who testified he heard people screaming on the battlefield and could identify voices that way. he identified george zimmerman. she thought he was one of the best witnesses in the case. >> one of the things that stood out to me, she used the word confusing on a number of occasions. she said they had to consider second-degree murder, they had to consider manslaughter. they had to think about self-defense. they had to think about stand your ground. based on what you heard from this juror, do you think she had a clear understanding of the law she was being asked to deliberate? >> i think the jury instructions were very confusing. 27 pages. i read through them. at one point they sent out a note during their deliberations that they didn't understand the
7:09 am
manslaughter charge. they never got a clear answer, ultimately they came back with an acquittal but this was a call to clear up the jury instructions. >> on a related subject she believes whether trayvon martin may have reached for george zimmerman's gun or not, it didn't make a difference because george zimmerman had a right to protect himself. >> well, he did if he was reasonably in fear of imminent great bodily injury or death. reasonably. but the question of whether or not he was reaching for the gun, ultimately both sides were arguing reasonable doubt by the end of this trial. doesn't surprise me. >> based on the verdict does it surprise you she said going into deliberations three were in favor of acquittal and two in favor of convicting on manslaughter charges and one on second-degree murder. >> that is fascinating to me. the case was close at the beginning of deliberations but by the end they had a clear consensus for acquittal. >> lisa bloom thank you very much, appreciate it. now to a massive heat wave gripping a large section of the country. blistering temperatures and also
7:10 am
stifling humidity. this morning it's intensifying. nbc's peter alexander is in washington where another scorching day is on tap. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, you're right. we had breeze through here it feels good. it should be the coolest part of the day but already the temperature is in the 80s and here in d.c. it's going to reach a high in the upper 90s but it's going to feel with the heat index with the humidity more like 105 by midday. the real story across the country the persistence of this heat. for us it's day two of a week long stretch. >> and prince hits one way back, back, back! and -- >> reporter: at citi field in new york last night home runs were soaring and so was the temperatures. >> with a shot just like that! >> reporter: at 8:00, still 88 degrees with humidity that made it feel like it was in the 90s. again today parts of the northeast will feel like what one forecaster called a virtual sauna bath. >> awesome! >> it's never too hot for them. it's never too hot for them.
7:11 am
>> reporter: in chicago today, 91 will feel like 98. hartford, 99. >> you have to try to get your workout in early before the sun comes out. >> reporter: in philadelphia a high of 97, but it will feel like triple digits, 100 degrees, forcing seniors to find safety inside. everywhere you go, air conditioners in overdrive and power companies trying to keep up. >> ideally if there's an outage, it will be minimized and held to affect the fewest people for the shortest period of time. >> reporter: while it may not be enough to shatter many records this heat streak is epreoppress as it is dangerous, one of the most sustained in years. >> what makes this unusual is the fact that it's going to be so prolonged and it's going to grow each day. >>. >> reporter: here in d.c. -- >> i'm wiping sweat. i'm hot. >> reporter: fountains offer the closest thing to relief. while seasoned washingtonians
7:12 am
and tourists plan their escape. >> explore the museums. >> we have water bottles as well and portable sand and we're not wearing big clothes. >> reporter: to add insalt to injury this morning, matt, we're learning more about a water pipeline problem in prince george's county maryland. they are warning people to begin stocking up on water immediately. this problem could mean a water shortage at the peak of summer heat could last for days. >> peter alexander in washington, peter, thanks very much. al still out on the plaza. how long is this going to last al? >> for a lot of us it will last right on into saturday. the jet stream is way up to the north. this huge dome of high pressure stretching from the northeast to mid-atlantic city into new england, i should say into the midwest is going to cause big problems. here's what happens. we expect this high to continue to dominate. continue to pump in that warm air. we've got heat advisories, heat watches and excessive heat warnings from michigan all the way to new england, including
7:13 am
just south of boston. look at these temperatures, going to feel like 106 degrees in richmond. norfolk 102. 102 in salisbury, maryland. atlantic city it will feel like 97. 100 degrees in central connecticut and the problem is this heat isn't going away. even out west, seattle 87. 96 and 92 in portland so the heat goes on for at least another 72 hours, matt. >> all right, al, we'll get your local forecast in a second. tamron hall is in with the headlines while she is here for natalie. >> a lot more going on. a filibuster fight on capitol hill this morning. temperatures are rising as democrats say they may change the rules to keep republicans from blocking white house nominees. a three-hour meeting of nearly 100 senators monday night ended with no resolution. in egypt this morning, seven people were killed. hundreds injured in clashes between supporters and opponents

7:16 am
and our weather this morning including a lot of low clouds. you can see the view over oakland and an all-day sea breeze will keep the temperatures similar to what we saw yesterday, which means only 60s from san francisco to oakland. mid-70s around san jose. south of downtown san jose, over towards pleasanton, maybe briefly near 80. today, obviously, the coolest day of the next seven. tomorrow, we start to warm up, 90s back in the valleys starting thursday. that's your latest weather. now back to savannah in l.a. >> thank you. we are learning more about the tragic death and final days of "glee" star cory monteith. an autopsy was performed on monday but the exact cause of the death is still unclear. katie is in vancouver this morning. katie, good morning. >> the autopsy has been started and they sent out the toxicology samples. they're hoping to fast track the tests so they get the results as

early as sometime this week. this as new details are emerging about what they found in his hotel room. >> reporter: at 31 years old cory monteith looked like he had everything going for him. a lead role in a gang buster tv drama. a beautiful girlfriend and costar, and finally would seem like a handle on his past struggles with substance abuse. but saturday morning something went wrong and monteith was found dead in his vancouv hotel room. >> a police source tells me that they found when they entered the room some substances. they're not being specific about what those substances are. >> find something that inspires you. >> reporter: in 2011 the actor told the canadian broadcast that he kicked his addiction. >> is it a struggle to stay on that path? to stay clean? to stay on that road. >> no man, you mean now.
7:18 am
>> yeah. >> no, i just redouble my efforts on what i'm doing. >> reporter: this past spring he checked himself into rehab. on an episode of inside the actor's studio last year he was asked about dying and eluded to his rocky journey. >> if heaven exists what would you like to hear god say. >> sorry i haven't been around. there's a good explanation. >> he came to call vancouver his home. monday his cousin laid flowers at the growing memorial outside the hotel. he called monteith his hero. >> they call acting singing, professional sports a pipe dream. he said no matter how long that tunnel is know there's always a light at the end of the tunnel and so he was that light for me. >> reporter: meanwhile, more of monteith's "glee" costars have spoken out. she said he is a special part of this world and will forever be missed. as for his girlfriend and costar

patrick with his former girlfriend and the son she bore with his donated sperm three years ago. the boy, named gus, with patrick alone. there's video of them visiting in new york city when he was in a long running play and showing gus finding daddy on a broadway play bill. >> which one is dada? right there. that's right. >> he wrote her that he didn't want to be a father though he was willing to donate sperm and she told savannah that after the baby's birth patrick spent very little time with him. >> he never changed a single diaper. was never with gus unsupervised for more than half an hour here or there. >> he says he selected intended father on his donor form rather than waving his rights to claim parenthood and says he was an active father to gus from the beginning in as many ways as he could be choosing and paying for preschool and spending as much time as he could with gus.
7:33 am
>> she had her house and i lived ten minutes away and every morning i was there. >> he says he has been barred from seeing gus since a court 20 weeks ago ruled for danielle as sole parent. >> he's never seen me again. there's not a picture of me in his house. and she has him calling other people dada. and what did this boy think happened? >> and now a public dispute with a child welfare in the balance. nbc news los angeles. and jason patric is with us here along with his attorney. good morning to both of you. >> good morning savannah. >> jason, i think this gets a little confusing for some people because on the one hand initially it appears you did not intend to be the father and then ultimately you did have some kind of relationship with this little boy. yesterday danielle was on our show and she said explicitly you never changed a diaper and you were never alone with gus for more than a half hour.
7:34 am
is she lying? >> unfortunately he is, yes. and the way the story is played out because it's a nice sound bite about sperm donor but i was never a sperm donor. we had fertility issues and we had to go to assisted reproductive technology and i had to give sperm. if you are a sperm donor when you go to a sperm bank you sign a waiver form that waifs your rights and responsibilities and i did the opposite. i signed an intended parent form with my name and danielle's name as intended parents of the child that would come from the process. >> that form came into the court case but so did a letter that you also supplied in which you stated you were not ready to be a father and she says you asked her to keep it secret. how do you explain that. >> i just said the actual words, the word secret is never in that letter. i said let's keep this among ourselves. we tried for at least three years. she had a bad miscarriage and the pressures of all the different fertility treatments
7:35 am
put pressure on her. when i said let's keep this between us meaning the pregnancy. >> did the letter say i'm not ready to be a father. >> yeah, sure after all the process and miscarriages and all the things there was confusion but it was more about the idea of i don't know if i can be what could be considered the conventional family. >> but how do you explain this because jason lost in the initial trial, the initial court case that dealt with this and yet he does have video, he has things that have the little boy calling him dada. he has the intended parent form. how do you explain how sit that the courtsided with danielle in this? >> the court took a strict interpretation of what the statute says. it says if a man provides his semen to a physician for the purpose of inseminated an unmarriewoman he is barred legally from asserting that he is the father. but there's two different statutes at play here. that's why we have the bill pending. there's another statute that says that a man can come to
7:36 am
court, a man anywhere in the world that could be any other individual other than jason doing this, and this man could say i held this child out as my own and i received the child into my home and the court would give him the opportunity to be heard on whether he could be legally determined to be the father. the only man who can't is jason, the biological father. >> briefly there's legislation now pending that could change that so that it would apply to somebody in jason's situation but would it pass would it apply retroactively? would it help jason's situation? >> well, the legislation sitting in the assembly will be effective as of january 1st, 2014. >> when was the last time you saw gus. >> the 2 1 weeks today. >> have you had any contact whatsoever? >> none. i sent at least 20 e-mails. fred sent a dozen legal letters and no reply whatsoever. >> i asked danielle yesterday if jason wants to be a father with
7:37 am
this child what is wrong with that. she said she never tried to end the relationship. she is just trying to determine her legal rights. what do you say to that? >> i say, danielle if you're out there listening right now where ever you are because i don't know where my son is in this world, you have my e-mail. you have my number and call me and where ever you are i will be there tomorrow. if you are truthful about that let me know because i want to see my son. that's all i've been trying to do. >> are you looking for full custody of your son? >> i want my son to have the two parents he grew up with his entire life until i decided i no longer could be with his mother and she said then you're not going to have your son. >> well, it's a long tale. i appreciate you coming here and bringing your perspective. both of you, thank you very much. unfortunately we're out of time. we'll take a turn now and send it back to new york. al as a check of the very hot weather. thank you savannah. we're out here. everybody has their fans working. and yes, they are all mine. you have two pairs of twins.

7:39 am

"today" national investigative correspondent jeff rossen has details on this. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we always hear horror stories about health insurance companies denying claims but some experts say this case could take the cake. you're about to meet a man who is dying. there's a drug out there on the market that could literally save his life but he has been battling his health insurance company for more than a year to get it and now a new development in this case that no one saw coming. kevin dwyer can't breathe. he can't even sleep without choking. his condition so serious kevin's new wife has to help clear his lungs every day. >> what are you afraid of? >> of him dying.
8:17 am
>> i didn't think this would come to this this fast. but it's come down to fighting for my life. >> reporter: kevin has cystic fibrosis, a deadly disease clogging the lungs, causing dangerous infections, even internal bleeding. the average life span of a patient, only 37 years old. kevin is 40. >> i'm suffocating to death very, very slowly. >> because your airways are closing. >> and it's getting worse. rapidly. >> reporter: so why is his sister martha who has the same exact disease doing so well? her lung function is stable, even improving. >> i feel able to hope for the future in a way that i never could before. >> that's a big deal. >> it's everything, yeah. >> reporter: and she credits this little pill for all of it. a new drug called kalydeco, actually slowing the disease in some patients and ideally
8:18 am
extending their lives. but it's expensive. $25,000 a month. so martha and kevin, brother and sister, asked their insurance to cover it. they have the same insurance company, united healthcare. they have the same mutation of cf. they see the same doctor who wrote the same letter to united that both will likely benefit from treatment with kalydeco but in a stunning twist, martha was approved and kevin was denied. >> it crushed me. i was devastated. i was baffled. >> have you said to the reviewing company you already approved my sister? what do you mean you're denying me. >> yeah that was part of my appeal. i sent in a copy of my sister's review. i let them know you already approved this. >> what was the response. >> denied. >> reporter: in fact, kevin was denied four times. the company's reason, kalydeco is not fda approved for his
8:19 am
mutation but remember martha has the same mutation and she got approved. her reviewer saying the drug is medically necessary while kevin's reviewer said not medically necessary. >> it's too random. it can't be like russian roulette. >> reporter: healthcare advocates say the system is broken. >> there needs to be more transparency, more accountability and it shouldn't be luck of the draw. >> reporter: as now time may be running out. here was kevin two years ago, a model of fitness. today, he can barely make it up a flight of stairs. >> i want to live to the end with him and i certainly don't want him to leave me. >> if i don't get this medication, i don't what other options i would have. this is life and death. it's completely life and death. >> reporter: some of the bravest

people i know. kevin his wife katie and sister martha joining us live this morning. they're here on the sofa because we have a big development to share in this case. we called united healthcare for our story. we always do to get a comment on these things and we got action. united has done a complete reversal and has just approved kevin's claim because of the quote, unique circumstances of his case. so matt, he is finally getting the drug that he has worked so hard to get and that's great news. >> logic finally in what seemed to be a completely illogical scenario. what's your reaction first, kevin. >> i'm ecstatic obviously and big sense of relief. this was a long stressful battle. and just to be able to finally say that and know that i'm going to get this drug. >> when i read about this story i could picture hundreds of thousands of people sitting at home getting angry. millions maybe. people who probably have fought their own insurance companies over situations like this.
8:21 am

allianz timers. >> this is what retirement was supposed to look like for nancy albertson. >> is that grand pa? >> playing with her grand children and spending time with her husband of 39 years. she didn't expect to become the face of early on set alzheimer's disease. >> why did you think you might have early alzheimer's?
8:39 am
>> i taught english as a second language so i wanted to say something or write something and i thought i can't get that word. >> nancy is experiencing a symptom of early alzheimer's known as language recall. >> i think it's something that you don't think of in people under the age of 60 very often. >> nancy was only 59 when she first revealed her problem to her family doctor during a routine physical. >> made me think we need to look into this further. this is not normal. >> dr. golden referred nancy to a neurologist eventually leading her to a diagnosis of early on set alzheimer's. >> this is an excellent example of how physicians diagnosis should be done. >> she is overseeing the presentation of new research this week at the alzheimer's associations international conference in boston where early detection is a hot topic. >> do you think it really did cause -- >> researchers will present new
8:40 am
guidelines that could help family doctors like nancy recognize and identify the symptoms of early on set alzheimer's. >> it's important to know what's happening in the brain when these brain changes are starting and if it is alzheimer's disease that future planning needs to happen with the planning now. >> reporter: nancy watched her own mother die from alzheimer's so she struggled with the decision to tell her four siblings about her own diagnosis. >> one thing i am fortunate for is that i am able to get more help than mom ever did. >> reporter: she revealed her diagnosis in a letter telling her siblings they shouldn't worry about her. >> i feel much closer to god and between god, my husband, and the medicine, i think my life is better now. because life is more precious, you know? that's why. >> today is friday. >> reporter: in this video diary nancy gives us a peek at her daily routine and how new medication is helping her retain
8:41 am
some of her former life. driving to the local market for groceries, also making breakfast. for now. >> you don't know what tomorrow is going to hold. one day could change everything. >> how do you not get angry about that? >> i was angry for a long time. >> a local support group gives rick and nancy a safe place to talk about their new roles as caregiver and patient. >> you're going to do the best that you can and that's why she has such confidence in you. >> rick also hired a part time caregiver for nancy to relieve him of some of his daily responsibilities. and nancy is doing her part indulging in one of rick's passions by learning to play the wash board at his weekly bluegrass jam. >> your husband said that he is proud of you. >> and i am him. >> you're proud of him too. >> it's a hard thing to go through as a couple.
8:42 am
>> it's important to stress that one of the toughest decisions nancy made was, in fact, to speak up and admit she was having a problem. by getting an early diagnosis she is giving researchers time to study her and to help not only her with the symptoms but also so many other people he struggling to find a cure in the future. >> it's an incredibly courageous thing to do. let's bring our own dr. nancy snyderman into this conversation. she looked so young and noticed she was forgetting words. how do you know if it's normal aging or something potentially more serious. >> when you look at her speak you can tell she is searching for words and that can be a real issue and early warning sign, especially for someone that already mastered language well. problem solving. major lapses during the day of memory. the inability to figure out why you're going to the store, why you have a laundry list sometimes getting lost. all of those issues, when they become destructive to normal
8:43 am
mundane tasks we undertake every day, each of those can be an early warning sign. >> and maria, you mentioned this enabled the researchers to look at the early stage of the disease and allow someone to have more control about their future. >> as nancy also knows, doctors believe that alzheimer's is present in your system 20 years before it's actually diagnosed and the earlier that doctors are able to get people into clinical trials, the better they think that they can deal with them and hopefully we can find a cure but we need a lot more money for research and a lot more people volunteering and coming forward. >> ten seconds nancy, the sad news is we're not close to a cure. >> there's no great drugs on the market now but the earlier you know, the more you can get into clinical trials and increasingly we'll be looking at genomics for this. get things under way and knowing you're legally and financially okay. we don't have big conversations

8:48 am
>> it was inspired to a large degree by the revelation two years ago, three years ago, we had this mass of russian spies living in the united states, here in new york city, operating under we call illegal cover. they were living under false identities. people were shocked that the russians were some infiltrating russian citizens to spy on us. i was not. i knew it was taking place. >> by the way, some of the spice were not the highest talent level. >> you know what -- >> that was the anna chapman group. >> it was the anna chapman group. i think it was a lot of th spin that came out. the administration wanted to get this out of the way so it wouldn't be a distraction. >> unck it was more serious? >> i do. >> you are big on social media. you have a big loyal following. do you listen to what they say a

9:00 am
be happy. be healthy. welcome to today on this tuesday morning, july 16th, 2013. i'm willie geist with al roker and jenna wolf in f natalie while she is on royal baby watch. >> what folks don't realize is willie, like myself, we do like crazy and they have this fan blowing mach 2. >> it's the most model like i have ever looked. it is freezing just in this little area where i'm sitting right now. >> it's 106 outside so we tried to cool it down here and now we
9:01 am
have gone too far. >> they haven't ever come out this far but i'm going with it. there we go. >> okay. you are a hot box aren't you? >> it is hot outside. we're going to talk about the weather in a minute. want to talk about the news going on, though. last night one of the jurors that acquitted george zimmerman gave an interview to anderson cooper on cnn, the woman identified as juror b-37 offered new insight as to what was going on behind closed doors. when the six jurors went into the room, one believed zimmerman was guilty of second-degree murder, two thought he was guilty of manslaughter and three believed he was not guilty. three people thought he was guilty of something and three who didn't. she said she believes it was trayvon martin that threw the first punch and then said zimmerman had the right to defend himself. here she is. >> you had the parents of trayvon martin testifying, you had the family of george zimmerman and friends of george zimmerman testifying on whose
9:02 am
voice it was. whose voice do you think it was? >> i think it was george zimmerman's. >> did everybody in the jury agree with that? >> all but probably one. >> and what made you think it was george zimmerman's voice. >> because of the evidence that he was the one that had gotten beaten. i think george zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done. but i think his heart was in the right place. it just went terribly wrong. >> in that jury room, what was -- emotionally what was that like. >> it was emotional to a point but after we put our vote in and the bailiff had taken our vote, that's when everybody started to cry. >> tell me about that. >> it's just hard. thinking that somebody lost
9:03 am
their life and there's nothing else that could be done about it. i mean, it's what happened. it's sad. it's a tragedy this happened but it happened. >> a little window into what it's like to serve on the jury. the question here was since there was no living witness unfortunately, because trayvon martin was killed, what happened and what was your interpretation of what happened because no one knew and the juror b-37 said right there she thought that zimmerman's heart was in the right place. those were her words. he meant well. he was trying to stop something he thought was wrong and it went bad. that's a window into what she thought and apparently what the jurors thought anyway. >> here's the other thing. we can say what we want about what the jurors may or may not have been thinking. she said she was completely unaware, they all were of the national attention this entire trial was getting. she had no idea how much it was being talked about. so for them they were isolated in a small room. they had only the evidence presented to them every single
9:04 am
day and that's what they were judging this on. not listening to anything else happening around the country. >> general consensus is the prosecution maybe made some misjudgments as far as what they did and the case they presented. so there you have it. >> there were some reports yesterday that this juror, b-37 had ray book deal and was going to write about what happened behind closed doors and there was pressure on her and the publisher not to do the book and she said i want to leave my life as it was before this trial so no book from this juror anyway. but there are five others to come. there was violence last night. at least 20 people arrested in california during protests over the verdict. protests in los angeles began peacefully but a small number descended into violence. the mayor there asked protestors to stop vandalizing the city saying, quote, the martin family did not ask anybody to break car windows. meantime, eric holder promised the justice department will continue to act in a manner that's consistent with the facts
9:05 am
and the law as it considers whether to pursue criminal civil rights charges against george zimmerman. >> it's not over by a long shot. >> no. the other big story across what, half the country al. >> at least. >> is the heat. >> yeah. in fact, you've got this dome of high pressure. it's just dominating from mid-atlantic northeast, new england but even back into michigan there's heat advisories up there and even as you get into int the pacific northwest, seating will be hotter than san diego. up to 87 degrees in seattle today. >> that's getting all technical. i'm going to tell you, you have this build in water mound you're walking around with at all times it's awful but the only thing about being pregnant is you have built in personal space. you can't have anyone -- you don't have any of this hoe's things going, are things really good. i don't want any part of that. this gives me a one foot barrier at all times and i am 100%
9:06 am
welcoming it. >> you have no problem. >> does this bother you. what if we were outside right now and it was noon. that would bother you. don't tell me that wouldn't bother you. >> that bothers me any time. >> i was going to say. >> i'm going to have nightmares about that. >> it boggthered the baby. >> you were at the h derby. >> the all-star game is out in queens tonight. last night was the home run derby. it was a bunch of people doing this number the whole time and then at the stadium itself, they had cooling stations. they were throwing ice at people and the crowd was a little subdued because they were all head back in the seats trying to get through the night. it was incredibly hot and even when the sun went down still in the 90s it was outrageously hot. >> some argument that one of the reasons there was so many home runs hit that it's the heat and humidity and the air is more buoyt so there's less friction on the ball. >> fun night and supposed to be
9:07 am
hot out there again tonight. jenna, we're talking about keeping cool, do you have any pictures of you in pabathing suits. >> we were all three sent a e-mail that said send in your pictures of how you stay cool. >> just show the picture. >> show the picture. >> oh, no -- >> that one is okay. >> the next one. >> it was the only picture i had. >> look at me. look at my abs and incredibly toned legs while i do the hand stand. >> did you send pictures in. >> well, there's staying cool and then there's being cool. >> oh, i see that. >> yeah, i forgot. i forgot i was vacationing in rome with bruce springstein because we can all that. i did a back flip into a pool. >> was that a one handed cart wheel. >> it wasn't while i was pregnant. >> okay. there's got to be another topic. perfect. >> you look great. >> thank you very much. >> as you reminded us just now.
9:08 am
let's get to the royal baby watch. natalie is in london. day two now. natalie. anything going on over there? >> great kate wait continues here guys. that's right. we're awaiting word, any word, any time now but i can tell you one royal is dropping some clues as to when baby cambridge may arrive. take a listen. >> we're all waiting at the end of the telephone. hopefully by the end of the week he or she will be there. >> so the duchess of cornwall out and about in cornwall yesterday along with prince charles dropping a big hint saying she expects by the end of this week we'll get to see the new royal. so we'll hold her to that and hope she knows more than we do about when kate is actually expecting to deliver. but i can tell you, the people here are all excited. everybody is, you know, waiting
9:09 am
on stand by, pins and needles. even the royals themselves as you heard camilla say that they're waiting by the phone just waiting for that phone call as well guys. >> natalie, this survey that you alerted us to, there's a british survey about what moms that just had kids are waiting to do. can you explain that? >> that's right. well, there was a survey of about 400 new moms and apparently about 10% of them, so about 40 moms have left their children, their new babies unnamed as of yet because they're waiting to find out what the royal baby will be. they're baby x, y, z until they know what they decided to name their baby. >> wow. >> it's not just us. >> they have about six weeks to finally narrow it down. to finally give the baby a name. >> that's nothing. i waited two months to get pregnant after her so at least i would know the name.
9:10 am
>> top that brits. >> there you go. >> in your face britain. >> this last one is a good one. >> yeah, this is a great one. there's this new beauty secret i'm told. there's a salon in tokyo that has an unusual facial. it claims it's the only place in japan, perhaps in the world where you can try a live snail facial which acts as a moisturizer. runs about $250. the therapists put them on the face of the clients and allows them to move around leaving a trail of slime which is good for your skin. >> how is this supposed to go? why don't we talk about that. >> originally jenna was going to do this and then in our make up room, we decided with you being pregnant and so close it's probably not the best thing to do. >> i have 15 calls into my ob so because of that you are now on the hot seat with the snails. >> and lori is here to give her opinion. is this for real? does it work.
9:11 am

9:52 am
jazz it up. you got your cheesecake and you're ready to let it set, okay? we're just going to get some -- i made a mess. you do this in the advance. just put chocolate there and then you're going to swirl it in. >> then you end up with something that looks very much like this. >> it's all you need to do. it's just the technique. we didn't change anything. just the way it looks. >> that's the secret. robin miller. thanks so much. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
