7:02 am
to a start. >> it sounded like a bunch of stuff hitting medal. >> reporter: scary moments for riders on the vortex in north carolina. police say at least five passengers were injured when the ride suddenly restarted. >> the ride had stopped and they were fixing to off load when it started off again. >> reporter: this is the first time this vortex ride has been at the state fair, seen here in a clip on youtube prior to last night's accident. rides are supposed to be checked three times a day and those inspections will now get a second look. >> they'll be looking at the diagnostics, all the safety systems and any piece of that ride to determine if it was, indeed, a malfunction of the ride. >> reporter: federal records show the incident happened 11 years to the day since a worker was killed by a ride at this fair. the victims who range in age from 14 to 39 were being treated at the wakemed medical campus in
7:03 am
raleigh. >> we'll do everything to make it safe so the families can come. >> reporter: two of the victims were released from the hospital this morning. the fair itself will open as scheduled. investigators try to figure out whether this was a mechanical or human error that caused the accident. savannah, carson, back to you. >> chris, thank you very much. the investigation into the murder of a beloved massachusetts teacher is ramping up this morning as her high school reopens. nbc's ron allen is there. ron, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, school is back in session. a town in mourning. but it's also a community determined to move on for the teacher they loss. that's why just a few days after the death of colleen ritzer, high school students here are going back to school. over a thousand parents arrived last night for a community
7:04 am
meeting in the school that's the scene of an unspeakable crime. >> it's hard for these kids knowing they were so close to a murder. >> reporter: many left feeling reassured. >> they talked about security and being there to support the kids. they're doing a fantastic job. >> reporter: just wednesday, police found the body of 24-year-old colleen ritzer in the woods near the school and charged 14-year-old philip chism with murder. he has pleaded not guilty. students say that day he asked ritzer to meet with him after class. >> she was smiling at me and he was staring at me. >> reporter: an nbc affiliate showed security cameras captured ritzer following her in the bathroom and exiting with blood on his clothes and he wheeled the body outside in a recycling bin and covered it with leaves. when police took him into custody he reportedly had ritzer's i.d. and used her credit card at a wendy's. in tennessee where they moved to

danvers from last summer, a former soccer coach said he never would have expected a quiet kid who loved to play the game so much to commit such a heinous crime. >> it makes no sense. i don't understand it. it certainly doesn't sound like him. but, who knows? i don't know if there's going to be a good answer of why. >> reporter: while back in danvers the community takes a huge step forward. >> we'll never recover from the loss of colleen but we want to get this community and this school back to some sort of normally. >> reporter: police said the bathroom, the crime scene where the teacher's blood, will remain sealed indefinitely. no word on what will happen to her classroom which we understand is just across the hall. savannah, carson. >> thank you very much. let's turn to natalie following a story of americans taken hostage by pirates. >> once again. that's right. two americans are at the center of drama on the high seas. they have been kidnapped by pirates off the coast of
7:06 am
nigeria. jim is at the pentagon with the very latest. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. there's no word on the condition or whereabouts of those two americans. their identities have not been released but the fact that their ship was flying an american flag made them an all too tempting target for pirates. in a brazen attack, pirates kidnapped the two americans off this u.s. flag ship, the c-retriever. they easily boarded the ship and then methodically singled out the americans, the u.s. captain and chief engineer and took them ashore as hostages. it all happened in the gulf of guinea off nigeria with a steady stream of cargo ships it's a prime hunting ground for pirates. the most memorable pirate attack on an american is now a hit movie. captain richard phillips was kidnapped by somali pirates
7:07 am
and held hostage for five days at seas before he was rescued by navy s.e.a.l.s but he worries the nigerian pirates hold a bigger threat. >> they'll usually bring them ashore and hide them so no rescue attempt can be made. you have to understand, it's dangerous out in the gulf of guinea. >> reporter: acts of piracy have decreased across the rest of the world but off the coast of nigeria they skyrocketed over 30% this year. >> this is not a hollywood movie plot. they threaten our economic security and put innocent lives at risk. >> reporter: defense officials here tell us that at this point it appears that it's highly unlikely there will be any kind of u.s. military rescue attempt and the way this worked almost all the times in the past, a ransom is paid and hostages are released and the shipping company writes it off as the cost of doing business but that
7:08 am
makes it no less terrifying for the hostages and their families. >> jim, thank you. there were some tense moments on capitol hill thursday during a congressional hearing over the troubled obama care website. they were grilled by lawmakers and they acknowledged their frustrations but things got even more heated when the new jersey congressman, a democrat, said republicans were trying to scare people to prevent them from enrolling in the program. take a listen to the following exchange. >> once again here we have my republican colleagues trying to scare everybody -- >> will the gentleman yield? >> no, i will not yield to this monkey court. or whatever this thing is. >> this is not a monkey court. >> i'm not yielding. >> meantime, contractors say that high user volumes and late changes my federal overseers contributed to the problem. we're getting our first look at the most adorable photos of prince george's christening in london. take a look at them.

you. you made it to the end of the week. we've got a good looking weekend headed our way. the time 7:12. good looking shot from san francisco, a pretty sunrise out there this morning. temperatures are going to end up in the upper 70s today. livermore 78 degrees, 68 in san francisco, and 71 degrees on the way to redwood city. we continue to show you the beautiful sun rise shots. >> and that's your latest weather, back to you guys. >> all right, al, thanks. now some news tied to your health. >> that's right, the fda is recommending new restrictions for a popular and highly addictive painkiller. we're talking about drugs like vicodin that include hydrocodone which are the most widely prescribed in the country. we welcome in dr. nancy snyderman. what does this rule mean for the average person that's taking vicodin for post-op or chronic
7:13 am
pain? >> it's not going to be a problem but women can be seen by multiple doctors getting the drugs and they're highly addictive and abused. they're looking for those that need them for long-term pain and those that use them and abuse them. right now the fda has been urged by the drug enforcement agency to make these tighter because it's so easy to get them and the fda has held off. but i expect now with the blessing of hhs, they are going to absolutely put in the new criteria which means right now you can get six prescriptions within a six-month span. they're not going to say no. you have to see your doctor every three months. right now i can call in a prescription to a pharmacy. from now on, you will have to have a written prescription to prove it's for you. >> but do you think the new rules will cut down on abuse? >> that's been the problem. they said no, it's going to put
7:14 am
the burden on the patient that need it and may not cut down. but last year over 450,000 emergency room visits for overdoses on this. it's the hydrocodone part. and the problem is they're really good medicines but they're also sort of stupid medicines to get addicted to because the one thing they do for anybody that's ever been on them after surgery is they make you constipated. so, i know that seems like a silly little thing. but you have a bowel system that doesn't work and you're addicted to these drugs. they're tough to get off. i don't think it's if it will happen. it's when it will happen. the fda will push this one through. >> thank you. the attorney general of maryland finds himself at the center of a controversy. a photo has emerged that shows him at a house party where underage drinking was taking place. pete williams picks up the story from there. pete, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good
7:15 am
morning. this has become an issue not just because he is running for governor but he is also state attorney general and underage drinking is illegal. he now says perhaps he should have done more. there in the middle of what was apparently a party for recent high school graduates stands doug gantzler holding a cell phone reading a text message. he said he stopped by the beach house to tell his 19-year-old son about plans for the next day and although the party last june was in bethany beach, delaware, he said he should have done more than simply leave. >> perhaps i should have assumed there was drinking going on and i got that wrong. what i can tell you was that at no time while i was in the house did i see any teenager in any danger or any risk. >> reporter: gansler told the baltimore sun he didn't stop the party because he had no moral authority over other people's
7:16 am
children. some of the young people at the party say underaged drinking was going on. gansler says he doesn't know. >> there could be kool-aid but probably beer. >> reporter: the minimum drinking age is 21 including for wine and beer. he says gansler had a obligation to shut the party down. >> the fact that he would find himself in the middle and actually support an underage drinking party was law because it's breaking the law. >> reporter: it's especially embarrassing for gansler who lead campaigns against underaged drinking. >> it's never too early to talk to your kids about smart ways to say no. >> reporter: the incident touched off a national conversation. should parents control or prevent teen drinking. >> a third of the audience said the drinking is going to take place and the kids are better served meaning they're safer if there's parental involvement. >> reporter: gansler says the organizers of the party kept it inside the rented beach house

daughter playing youth soccer. >> when a former quarterback comes forward and says i can't remember one of the summers where my daughter plays soccer and links that to his playing career, i think people listen. >> head injury leads to permanent problems with people. if their kid is going out and doing these things, they have very well-educated coaches. >> reporter: in august, in nfl and thousands of former players that sued the league for concussion damages reached a $765 million settlement. players claimed the league withheld the information it knew about the risks of head injuries in the game. >> the players, either retired or some of the few players who are either killing themselves or self-destructing, you know, studies have proven that some of this is because of concussions. >> reporter: a future hall-of-famer adding his voice to the chorus of parents and players questioning the long lasting effects of concussions. during that same interview,
7:19 am
favre dismissed the possibility of returning to the nfl, even though one team tried to lure him back this week. right now he is coaching high school football in mississippi and said he is enjoying retirement. >> maybe that's a good place for him right now. >> yeah. >> since carson abandoned the orange room, tamron hall is holding down the fort. are you eating all of the reese's pieces or whatever? >> yes, you gained carson and i got al roker in exchange here. >> nice. >> he's hanging out with me. guys, they say it's not how you start, it's how you finish. you were talking about game two of the world series with the cards and the red sox last night. well, at the beginning of the game, it's the legend that was james taylor that was singing the national anthem for the crowd and all of those at home. take a look at what happened. >> won't you please welcome, the legendary james taylor.

community. i grew up in, the south bronx but was pleasantly surprised by an on air proposal. >> she is a very photoed young woman. >> he had that speech down. >> savannah, i saw him practicing. what is he rehearsing? >> congratulations to the happy couple. can we say hello to emmy-winning actor ty burrell. >> hello. >> he's here to talk about his new movie. we'll get a sneak preview. let's take a look. >> he calls it the way back. >> it's a time machine. >> wow. >> now that we've seen it, maybe we should go back. >> no. >> sherman, penny, why are you two dressed like ancient greeks. >> then we ran out of gas. >> in ancient troy. >> you used the way back. >> yeah. >> oh, my. >> you're mr. peabody but the
8:33 am
voice of penny sounded familiar? >> yes, that's ariel winter from modern family. we didn't just transplant the cast. >> what is the way back? >> i'm playing a genius which is the biggest stretch of my career. it's like de niro putting on 65 pounds. and i invented this way back to teach my son about history and it starts as mentor protege but they discover that they're father and son and love each other. >> this is your first animated feature and you're used to being funny but because you're a genius in this, it can't be so funny. >> right. it's actually amazing. he has surrounded peabody with hilarious people. steven colbert and it's just really funny. i just saw a cut of it. >> if you could go back in time to a certain period -- >> use the way back. >> use it.
8:34 am
where would you go? >> i'd probably go like -- it wouldn't be very far back. it would be just right before certain hair cuts in high school. >> i can relate. it would be a very short trip. the way back would be in good shape. >> and these are historic characters. people might recognize mr. peabody and sherman. >> that's right. it was late 50s, early 60s. i had an older brother and i remember watching him loving it and trying to get all the jokes. i still didn't at the time. that's one of the great things about jay word is he wrote for -- as you get older it gets funnier, too. >> part of rocky and bullwinkle. >> yeah. >> thank you for giving us a sneak preview. >> thank you for having me. >> mr. peabody and sherman hits theaters in march. look for it then. let's get a check of the weather from al. >> all right. let's show you what's going on tomorrow for your weekend.
8:35 am
gorgeous weather along the mid-atlantic into the gulf coast. rain and snow making its way through the great lakes. fog continues in the pacific northwest. and then sunday, sunday! sunny and cold conditions in the northeast. nice and warm down through florida. look for showers and thunderstorms making their way in the lower gulf andain left over >> good friday morning to you. you made it to the end of the week, and we have a really good-looking weekend to look forward to. i do want to show you mostly sunny over the golden gate bridge. the low clouds have developed burning off between now and about noon. that's when we're going to see a lot of sunshine. 70 in livermore. en 5 in concorde. 68 in san jose. right around 72 degrees tomorrow. even warmer. all right. sunday night football game, packers versus the vikings.
8:36 am
>> yes. >> i'm guessing you think the packers. >> all right. packers all the way. >> all right. anybody from minnesota? all right. let's go back inside. >> okay, al. thank you. what if you suddenly learned you have been doing something incorrectly your entire life? according to some experts we may all be washing our faces the wrong way. here to help us clean up our act is deborah, associated professor of dermatology at mount sinai here in new york. >> good morning. >> we have three people that are going to wash their faces as they normally do and you'll identify what we commonly do wrong. but is this something you find a lot. >> it's amazing how many people don't know how to wash their face properly. >> who should we start with? with brooke? >> yeah, with brooke. >> do your thing. is this normally how you wash your face? >> so brooke actually did
8:37 am
several things wrong already. she did not wash her hands which is the key thing. wash your hands before you wash your face because you want to be sure that the germs and bacteria are off of your face. she also didn't remove her make up before. she has a full face of eye make up. >> i thought what's why you wash your face. >> you'll end up with eye make up all over your face. not washing it is probably a big issue for her. >> you're saying if somebody has make up wipes, you take off the make up and then go to the cleanser. >> that's right. especially if you're wearing mascara or a lot of foundation. you need to do that before. >> i think you're doing a great job. now, andy, we have a guy doing his face wash. do your thing. presumably guys wash their faces differently than women do. >> often they do. so -- andy is pumping out a huge amount of cleanser on to his face and he is using a product there that has things in it and
8:38 am
they're going to leave a film on his skin and increase the risk he's going to get irritated from the product. >> it's not more cleanser cleaner face? >> no, the more you use it doesn't make a difference. you only need about the size of a dime and if you use more than that, you'll increase the risk for irritation. >> how often should you wash your face in a day. >> some people say once a day. some people say twice a day. i'm a big believer that twice a day is a good thing. just don't use abrasive cleaners both time. >> how about his patting technique. >> patting is important. that's great. you don't want to rub or scrub your face after you washed. >> okay. >> he's doing a great job there. >> good. let's move on to miss rachel. she is using bar soap. >> she is using dove which is not a bar soap but a cleansing bar. when you use a cleansing bar, that's fine to use. rachel is washing her face and the key is she is scrubbing. some people are aggressive
8:39 am
toward their skin. they can cause irritation and broken cap yularies. >> what about exfoiliators. >> tightness is not an indication of something that's good. you don't want to scrub too hard. you can use these brushes that lightly remove the dirt and products from your skin. you can use a wash cloth but you don't want to scrub too hard. you want to do it gently. >> lukewarm water and not cold water. >> right. lukewarm water. extreme temperatures can damage your skin and create more damage and irritation. >> all right. class, you did very well today. sort of. i hope we all learned something. thank you very much. deborah, appreciate the advice. >> thank you. >> coming up next, comic genius. the cause behind candid photos of the funniest people on the planet. then at 8:47, the football
8:40 am
star giving hope to our country's wounded warriors. but first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:41 am
8:42 am
all right. we are back now at 8:42 and some of the funniest comedians in the world have come together for an interesting project where they don't speak a word. it's all thanks to matt hoyle who has a new book out called comic genius, portraits of funny people. this is great. there's so many photos in it. where did the idea start from? >> i'm a celebrity photographer and i do familiar faces but the funny ones stood out to me. if i could get as many in front of my camera as possible, that's what i was going to do. >> it was like if i could just get mel brooks, if you could land somebody everybody else would come to the table. did it work like that? yeah, a lot of people go who is
8:43 am
going to be in this book? how many people do you you have? once we had him in it everybody said we can do it. it got easier. >> how do you work? did you come up with about a dozen ideas and go to the comedians and say here's what i'm thinking or did they come to you and say this is what i'd like to do? >> i actually did present them ideas and people said you're presenting comedians how to be funny. what are you doing? but i got lucky and presented them with ten ideas. we collaborated and got one or two ideas we thought would be good to depict the humor we wanted for the book. >> who was at the top of the list? >> the cover of the book, steve martin. >> right. >> throughout my life, from mork and mindy, robin williams and jonathan winters. i was lucky enough to get the last shoot with him and spend a morning with him and it was magic. this is a who's who of who made
8:44 am
me laugh. >> what did you say to steve martin? what was the creative pitch there. >> i knew he was an art collector and i said i want to do something surreal and he agreed. >> carol burnett was known on tugging on her ear. you had fun with that. >> that was her idea. she said i had my ear measured after we did the show and she said it's actually a little bit bigger. what if we extended it a little bit more and i thought okay, let's do it. that's the photo. >> some got two pictures and some got one. tina fey got two pictures. good timing. she will be hosting the golden globe with amy. >> right. it was just looking at what idea works. sometimes they only had time for one but it wasn't to do with any sort of importance or whatever. >> tell me more about the morning with jonathan winters. what was that like? >> well, he basically went through his entire life story before he, you know, let us take
8:45 am
the photo which was pretty magical and, you know, to hear him retell it and his facial expressions. it was an experience that, you know, that doing this book allowed me. it was magic. >> are you going to do it again? >> more funny people. >> creative genius. i want to shoot people that inspire us and do the biggest book of its kind. >> it's great. great pictures and great thought behind it. >> thank you. >> the book is called comic genius. thank you. >> thank you. >> coming up, a touching story. the football star making a big difference in the live of military families. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

8:48 am
extra yard. minnesota vikings star jared allen can be a quarterback's worst nightmare. you guys are getting into this story, huh? i'm going to pretend i didn't see that. off the field, some military families are calling him the answer to their prayers and kristen dahlgren has that story. >> good morning, guys. we have the popcorn and the banners and he says playing in the nfl is his life long dream but he would rather be remembered as a good man and for some deserving wounded warriors, that's all they see. >> he may be admired by millions for bone crushing sacks but ask jared allen and he'll be the first to tell you, he's no hero. >> we always get compared to a battle on the field. we play a game. we're not tough compared to them. >> reporter: then it's the men and women of the u.s. military like allen's brother and grandfather. >> my grandfather was 23 years in the marine corps.
8:49 am
korea, nam. i'm terrified of him. he can still beat me up. >> reporter: while he didn't join the military, he did join a uso tour to iraq in 2009. it changed his life. >> it changed everything for me. >> reporter: humbled by the sacrifice he knew he had to do something. he started jared allen's home for wounded warriors. >> where do i feel the safest at my weakest moment? where can i come, good day, bad day? it's your home. >> reporter: but what wounded veterans were coming home to were houses that couldn't accommodate their disabilities. he lost both his legs in iraq. >> what's going to make the biggest difference for you? >> the ability to get where i need to be and not have to worry about getting caught up on walls or corners. >> reporter: now allen's charity is retrofitting his house. >> i didn't have the funds to expand outwards. so this will become the bathroom. >> reporter: later this month homes for wounded warriors will
8:50 am
break ground on a new home for colin who lost his leg and, with it, his independence. >> no 22-year-old giuy that's been on their own for the last four years want to rely on mom or dad. i'll have 100% independence. it's a huge step. >> he has dreamed of a house like this ever since he could walk and honestly when he got injured we all thought that dream went away. and thanks to jared allen, the dream is going to come true. >> reporter: for allen, it's his dream coming true too. a chance to give back for all he has been given. >> we have a much bigger responsibility than just being football players in this world. >> by the end of the year he hopes to finish seven houses. the interesting thing, none of the wounded warriors thought they deserved this. they didn't think they were heros and allen doesn't think he is. i think they all are. >> they all are. >> thank you so much.
8:51 am
>> by the way, you can see jared in action sunday night when vikings take on the green bay packers, when? >> sunday night, football night in america at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on nbc. >> guys this popcorn is delicious. >> it's real and it's spectacular. >> it's so salty and buttery and

9:02 am
drinking. >> he actually had a press conference to address this talking about kool-aid and other things. >> perhaps i should have assumed there was drinking going on and i got that wrong. but what i can tell you is that at no time, while i was in the house, did i see any teenager in any danger or any risk. as a parent, you always try to make the best judgments. in this case, maybe i should have done something differently. >> if you look at the picture, not right where i was, but there's some kids -- one or two kids holding red cups and generally, you know, there could be kool-aid in the red cups but there's probably beer in the red cups. i didn't go over and stick my nose in and see and maybe i should have. >> i'm going with the kool-aid. i think there was kool-aid in the cup. >> kids always strip their shirts off and dance on tables after they drink kool-aid. >> that's what we do on friday afternoons here, the third hour.

9:04 am
a political activist was traveling from washington yesterday. he overheard what should have been, i guess, a confidential conversation between a reporter and the former director of the nsa and cia retired general michael haden. the political activist live tweeted the whole conversation. he said i'm sitting in a public space here on the train. i heard it and he put it out on twitter. >> it was supposed to be an off the record conversation as well. but yet he is live tweeting it and of course if you're on the phone in a public place and you're revealing nsa secrets -- >> not a good idea. >> not exactly the most confidential place. >> maybe he should have sat in the quite car. >> he said listening to former nsa spy boss michael hayden give "off the record" interviews. i feel like i'm in the nsa except i'm in public. phone ringing. i think the jig s'up. maybe somebody is telling him i'm here. do i hide?
9:05 am
then he kept tweeting, hayden's comments to press were clearly about nsa spying on foreign allies. that's them together for a nice pick. >> when he had something further to add he said i think he pretty much got the whole conversation there. he said that's pretty much all. >> do you ever do that in restaurants? especially in new york with the tables so close? >> it's hard. when you're on the phone you're more cautious and careful because you don't know who is listening in on your conversations these days. >> could be the government, could be the guy at the next table. >> exactly. james taylor, a lot of people calling this a flub. i think it was a great moment. he was giving his rendition of the national anthem. he appeared to forget he was singing the star spangled banner. later in the game he was to sing america the beautiful. he started off on that one but
