7:01 am
preparing to compete. the troubling results that would close any american beach and why one of team usa's famous athletes were taunted overnight by thousands of olympic fans. and good morning, america. okay, there's no opening ceremony for the olympics yet but already a pretty ugly scene. you saw it last night. hope solo really getting booed as she went on the field and did turn out okay for the u.s. big victory over new zealand. see the goal there. we conducted our own investigation into rio's water, those results are coming up, as well. first we'll begin with that breaking news overseas. a deadly attack in london. an american woman has been killed. five others injured. a suspect is now in custody and london is on edge as police step up security on the streets there. abc's alex marquardt is on the scene with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right.
7:02 am
this attack happened right here in russell square in the heart of central london at the height of tourist season. just moments ago london's police saying the suspect is is norwegian-somali origin. excuse me, robin. >> reporter: security stepped up. police cordons around russell square in central london as investigators comb through the scene of this gruesome knife attack. police were called just after 10:30 p.m. reports of a man on a rampage. they discovered the female victim in her 60s fatally wounded and five others injured. >> early indications suggest that mental health is a significant factor in this case. and that is one major line of inquiry. >> reporter: overnight one of the biggest security responses the city has seen since this same square was targeted in one of the deadly bombings in the summer of 2007. >> i could hear the policeman screaming, stop don't move. don't go any further. stay where you are and he turned around and continued running.
7:03 am
>> reporter: this as london braces for a terror attack that authorities say is all but inevitable. this week deploying 600 additional heavily armed police officers into the streets of the city in the wake of the recent wave of attacks in europe. so, even though there are no links to terror, this is still very much a city on edge. among the wounded there were five wounded, there was one american, this morning london's mayor calling on citizens to remain calm and vigilant. robin, george. >> alex, thank you very much. a lot of chaos. >> sure is. the race to the white house and questions swirling around donald trump's campaign. he says it's never been better but top republicans are in panic mode as a new fox news poll shows hillary clinton with a ten-point lead. trump's campaign chair paul manafort here in the studio after jon karl brings us the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. trump's allies are desperately trying to get their candidate back on message. so far the results have been mixed but even with the chaos,
7:04 am
trump's campaign is rolling in the cash fueled by a massive infusion of small dollar donations from his supporters. it's donald trump versus mike pence. while trump has infuriated fellow republicans by refusing to endorse paul ryan, speaker of the house. trump's own running mate is eagerly endorsing him. >> i strongly support paul ryan. strongly endorse his re-election. i believe we need paul ryan in leadership. >> reporter: even with chaos swirling around his campaign, trump insists things couldn't be better. >> the campaign is doing really well. it's never been so well united. >> reporter: not only does trump insist he'll win, he suggests a loss would be almost unthinkable. >> wouldn't that be embarrassing to lose to crooked hillary clinton? that would be terrible. >> reporter: voters he said simply must vote for him. >> if you dislike me intensely, if you say, i would never in a
7:05 am
million years vote for donald trump, you have to. you have no choice. >> reporter: his confidence given a boss boost by a big fund-raising haul in july, $2 million. but trump trail as clinton by ten points conducted in part before this week's cascade of missteps and controversies. it was that feud with the parents of a fallen american soldier. then suggesting women who are harassed at work should find a different job. then this claim about the purple heart. >> i always wanted to get the purple heart. this was much easier. >> reporter: overnight in jacksonville, florida, trump touted his gift yet again. >> i took it. i said i can't believe it. it's one of the most beautiful things that i've ever received and from the heart, so much from the heart. >> reporter: newt gingrich, one of trump's most reliable allies offered a blunt critique. >> some of what he's done is
7:06 am
very self-destructive. >> reporter: democrats are hitting him for suggesting the election might be rigged. >> i would just note it is often a claim made by people who don't end up winning elections. >> reporter: reince priebus has repeatedly tried to get trump to publicly apologize to the family of captain khan. trump has not done that. but, george, over the past 24 hours he has not attacked the family again either. >> okay, jon, thanks very much. let's talk to mr. trump's campaign chair, paul manafort right here joining us. thank you for coming in. >> george. >> let's pick up where jon left off. in that fox news poll it also shows that 70%, almost 70% of the voters thought that those comments about the khan family were out of bounds. why not apologize. >> well, i think mr. trump has paid the respect. it's just nobody is acknowledging it. >> he hasn't apologized. >> what he said is that he respects and totally sympathetic to the sack fights that family made talking about the son and
7:07 am
the family. and, you know, beyond that i think it's politics. i mean, the driving of what the right words are. he is appreciative of their efforts. and but he receives them as part of something that's a part of a bigger thing which is the campaign and the issue of isis and the issue of the mismanagement of foreign policy. that's what he's campaigning on. he's not campaigning on the khan family. he's campaigning on the -- >> he's hoping to move on without an apology. >> he's expressed his sympathy and expressed his support for what the family is going through. i mean it's like the same thing caught up, what's the difference between i support you and i endorse you, we quibble over the words and the sentiments are there and the sentiments about what he feels towards that family and what they've went through he expressed. just because he doesn't say the words everyone wants he said he's sorry for what they've gone through but keeps going back to the main issue and the main issue isn't this family, it's the main issue that caused the suffering of this family which is the war in the middle east, destabilization and policies of
7:08 am
obama and clinton that caused them. >> he said that the campaign is you nyed. never been doing so well. front page of "the washington post," gop, new level of panic over trump. one of his allies negresco is quoted in that article saying he cannot win the presidency operating the way he is now. isn't that right? >> look, last night he spoke in two events in florida. one had 10,000 people, another 15,000 people and it's august. i mean, these are crowds you see at the end of september, beginning of october so the support for mr. trump is there. the campaign messages are worked out. the themes of this campaign are settled. we know -- >> will he follow them, is the question. >> he will with, i think he is trying messages out on the campaign trail, you know, he's been very successful in the primaries. he draws his strength and his messages from the interaction he has with the public and he's doing that right now. >> he has a strong core of support no question about that but as you go into a general
7:09 am
election you have to build on that. that doesn't seem to be happening. >> oh, it's building. that's -- i mean, look, we framed the election. the convention did that. this is a change election. the stakes of the election are do you want more of the same, a third term of obama which would be clinton and the american people show they want change and the american people consistently show they don't think she can bring the change and that he's the change agent. >> he hasn't been talking about that. >> the last couple of days he has if you were down in florida but this time in august we've been through this and tried different approaches out. september, october, you have your messages honed. the strategy set. we know what it is. and the hillary clinton can't change her position in that context. >> one of the messages that mr. trump has been putting out, he warned several times this election is going to be rigged. is that a real concern? is it responsibly suggesting that the outcome of this election might not be legitimate. >> well, it's -- i mean he's concerned about several things. i mean he's concerned about the
7:10 am
coverage of the election. i mean which is part of the election process. >> his opponents say he's gotten $2 billion in free media. >> but, for example, 12 -- the two conventions when you hook at the analysis of the coverage of the two conventions, republican convention got 12 times more negative coverage than the democratic convention. >> that's not a rigged election. >> but that rigs the process if the messaging is one-sided. if the message is taking their narrative from one side of the campaign that affects the messaging absolutely. now do we think we can overcome that, yes, we do but at the same time it's a real issue to him. >> and finally you've heard jon karl report on reince priebus, the chairman of the rnc has been a strong ally of mr. trump. is livid about his refusal to endorse paul ryan. will we see an endorsement? has he spoken to mr. priebus. >> reince priebus is a strong supporter and a good friend and supporter of paul ryan and he's been abridge to -- between the party and the campaign since
7:11 am
mr. trump became the presumptive nominee in april and spoken several times in the last two day, they're very good friends and have done a lot of things together, you know, there's a conflict within the trump campaign. and we've sort of had a rule of not getting involved in primaries because it's usually not a good situation for the presidential candidate. of course, he'll work with paul ryan but ryan is running against somebody who's not going to win but nonetheless is a strong supporter of mr. trump's. it's not just in paul ryan's district, that gets all the notoriety because he's the speaker. >> mr. manafort, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. now to the severe weather across the country. flash floods in arizona and the carolinas and hurricane earl making landfall in belize overnight heading for mexico. ginger tracking it all. >> good morning. earl made landfall just near belize city and now is moving west. and i think the major concern here is even as it decrease, it's no longer a hurricane or becomes that. just a tropical storm and
7:12 am
depression, it's the heavy rain and can still have a foot of rain fall. speaking of that, more than 7 fell in charlotte, north carolina. check out this video and one of the rivers going up to 20 feet quickly in hours and video out of arizona right at the mexican border. they're also seeing flash flood problems the next couple of days it becomes more and i'll detail where that happens in just a couple of moments. rob robin and george. the first case of a u.s. police officer arrested for supporting isis who is a d.c. transit cop charged with trying to help the group, trying to help the terror group by buying them gift cards. abc's mary bruce has the story. >> reporter: this morning an alarming first. a police officer charged with aiding isis. the fbi allegedly catching nicholas young in the act. the fbi saying the 36-year-old thought he was selling hundreds of dollars of prepaid phone cards to an isis operative. but it was really an undercover fbi agent.
7:13 am
officials wednesday raiding his fairfax, virginia, home searching through his belongings. >> it's very, very disturbing. >> reporter: neighbors describe him as a loner. >> i'm not shocked because he was so weird. he was just so secluded and kept to himself. >> reporter: officials who have been tracking him for nix years say young was part of a radical network and previously associated with amine el khalifi seen in this undercover fbi video readying an attack on the u.s. capitol. now, despite young's close ties to one of the nation's largest transportation systems, officials say he was never a threat to commuters here. if convicted, he now faces up to 20 years in prison. robin. >> all right, mary, thank you. plow to the latest on that crash landing in dubai. we're getting a firsthand look at what happened after the airliner hit the ground surrounded by smoke. the 300 people on board thankfully were able to escape. abc's david kerley has the latest.
7:14 am
oh. >> reporter: a belly landing, the jet's right engine ripped away, but that wing without an engine may be leaking fuel and then this. an explosion. the wing tank blasted upward in a ball of fire. just minutes earlier, panic in the cabin. an emergency evacuation on the emirates 777. >> leave everything, please jump and slide. >> reporter: but passengers opened bins to grab their luggage before finally jumping down the slide only to see the other engine on fire. emirates 521 had a normal flight from india to dubai with 282 passengers and a crew of 18. as the jet approaches, no sense of emergency from the pilot. >> cleared to land one-two left. >> reporter: but 12 seconds later in an unconfirmed recording the piltower tells th pilot to climb which he acknowledges. 15 seconds later the pilot of another plane is stunned seeing the jet slam onto the runway. >> you can see the gear doors are closed.
7:15 am
>> reporter: behind those doors the landing gear, former ntsb lead investigator tom howdard. >> mechanical just jump out at me at the moment. >> leads to pilot error. >> some kind would be clear from this. >> reporter: still this morning emirates irlines won't acknowledge much less say the landing gear wasn't deployed. a transmission of the black boxes they got. ntsb and fbi investigators make that ntsb and boeing investigators, george, are heading to dubai. >> okay, thank you, david. we move on to the olympics. kicking off the opening ceremony tomorrow in rio as concerns grow over the water quality and whether it could be athletes' health at risk. matt gutman has the latest. >> reporter: one of the biggest health concerns is the water of that gorgeous bay behind me. we had it tested and scientists say they found levels of a virus 200 times higher than what we
7:16 am
would consider contaminated in the u.s. and those scientists say that those environments leach even into the sand here. this morning, new questions about the safety of the water some 1,400 athletes will compete in as they vie for olympic gold. brazil had promised a massive cleanup of the guanabara bay when the sailing events take place. one day away, these images, fete tid debris and a layer of scum and last week a corpse spotted in the bay and advising athletes who go into the water not to swallow it, to cover open wounds and wash immediately after they get out. abc news chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser saw that sewage firsthand from above. >> it's pure [ bleep ] going right into the river. >> yes. >> and from the water taking two
7:17 am
samples. one from the shore of the guanabara bay and another at the copacabana beach where marathon swimming will take place and bringing them both to a lab outside rio for testing. our testing snapshot of the water found virus and fecal b k bacteria levels far above what would get a u.s. beach closed. >> my kids, i wouldn't let them go interthese waters. >> reporter: while the copacabana sample shows high levels of viruses that indicated sewage pollution. a commercial environmental testing laboratory in new york had this to say. >> the diseases that could affect people that are exposed to these types of pathogens to be an acute respiratory disease like typhoid, help tight is, gastroenteritis, dysentery and even ear infections. >> reporter: and that's not the only problem that organizers have encountered here. still over a million tickets unsold, so many that organizers
7:18 am
have actually given away 240,000 of them to underprivileged children here. guys. >> all right, now i want to show you this is the suit right here -- anti-microial and seamless. the rowing team will wear these for protections. we have one intern wearing it. where is showbiz. the legs are uncovered. will these help, matt. >> reporter: there's a lot of skepticism. they look great but the biggest concern is that people will ingest that dirty water and no suit can fully protect against that. lara. >> all right. yeah, you think there might be something -- >> is it comfortable? >> can you move? do you have a lot of freedom? >> it's tight. >> i think that's a good idea. thank you. over to ginger. boy, look at those fires. >> that poor thing, i'm sorry. the cold fire in yolo coal fire doubled since tuesday.

7:31 am
thanks. we start out with the search for a killer in new york after a jogger's body was found along a path she often ran. abc's linsey davis is in queens with the latest. >> reporter: karina vetrano was said to go running along this path every day but on this one occasion her dad didn't go and not only are they fearful but questioning whether it's targeted. >> strangulation, asphyxiation. >> reporter: a vigil for karina vetrano who went out for a jog around 5:00 tuesday and never came home. concerned, her father called police and went out looking for her on a path they often ran together. >> you can imagine his angst at that point. we found her face down in the ground. we immediately called ems. >> reporter: vetrano was found face down a few blocks away from
7:32 am
her new york home. you can see her here in a short film she wrote and starred in called "the paradox." she wrote about death. stipes when i'm feeling really sad and lonely and misunderstood i wonder if right now at this age and this time of my life if by some freak accident i died, what would happen. then this happened. her father a retired firefighter was having back pain and couldn't make the run on this evening and asked her not to go alone. >> she was a sweetheart. she lit up the room when she walked in. she was a beautiful girl. >> reporter: police say they have a lot of digital evidence including cameras in the neighborhood where her body was found. >> she had a very high social media profile so this is something that the detectives will have to cull through every one of these things to see if there's any threats or anything said really inappropriate. >> reporter: according to the autopsy she was strangled to death. there is also evidence that she was sexually assaulted.
7:33 am
police have yet to make any arrests. george. >> so horrible. okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's talk to brad garrett. surveillance cameras and social media profile. that's where police begin. >> that's where they begin but the real key is who frequents this area? maybe the local patrol folks will give them some insight into that but for whatever reason, trails and females, there is a certain attraction by a particular type of predator to go to those locations. so has he been watching her in the past? did he happen to come upon her this particular day? i don't know but my guess is he's going to have some connection to the park and between the surveillance cameras and checking out who patrol may know who hangs out in that area could be a potential lead. >> some connection to the park but not necessarily to her. >> yes. i will tell you, george, in
7:34 am
working attacks of females in parks, they tend to be random. now, that doesn't mean that the bad guy didn't see her at some other point. but one area that i would check that i've used in the past is you're going to pull up every registered sex offender in and around the proximity of that park and maybe even a circle bigger than that and look for m.o. and also going to look for other assaults in parks whether central park or similar location because people who like to do this will go from park to park. >> as we saw in the chandra levy case, sometimes they can be so hard tom solve. >> exactly. which is a wide-open case. the things i mentioned you got to jump on immediately and i think they've got some real possibility. >> okay, brad, thanks very much. now to that survival story. the florida driver behind the wheel of this car you're about to see. it was seek rolling over nearly a dozen times, well, that driver is now speaking out. abc's gio benitez is here with
7:35 am
the exclusive interview. good morning, gio. >> reporter: this is just incredible. the man tells us he was on the way to the hospital because he was feeling a little strange. he has no memory of that accident and doctors believe that's because he had a seizure while driving. leading to this. you're watching the moment a florida driver lost control of his car ending up in an epic accident more fit for a hollywood action flick. watch again, surveillance video capturing the car flipping not just once or twice, but at least eight times, slamming into the ground with each flip. leaving behind a massive debris field. incredibly the driver survives. now telling his story exclusively to "gma" from his hospital room. >> after seeing the video i'm lucky i'm here. >> reporter: miraculously 43-year-old joe myers has only small scrapes and cuts. not even a broken bone and attributes his survival to this moment, what happened right after the crash when good
7:36 am
samaritans rushed to save him. you can see one even using a fire extinguisher to put out any plames. >> they pulled me out through the sunroof because the doors were wedged shut. it's a miracle i'm here. i'm grateful to those people for saving me. >> you're good, brother. >> thank you. thank you so much. >> reporter: our cameras are right there as joe reunites with his rescuers. >> if it wasn't for you i wouldn't even be here, man. >> reporter: now in that hospital room joe's mom is thanking them too still stunned by that dramatic video. >> i was so thankful when i saw him and then you look back at the video again and it's like, it can't be, god's got to have a bigger plan for you, joey. >> a bigger plan, indeed. it's incredible, joe says he doesn't even want to drive anymore until doctors figure out what's going on with him. he said what scares him the most the thought he could have hurt
7:37 am
someone. >> oh, that's what he was thinking about. >> that's what he was thinking about. >> i love how his momma called him joey. >> and joey is here. >> thank you, gio. lara. coming up on our big board reports of a hammerhead shark closing a famous beach. now a new app that could warn if there's danger in water near you. then those frustrating self-checkout scanners. could they be turning honest people into thiefs? and want to fly to the moon? i wasn't going to sing, don't worry, guys. it could be a dream, a reality actually. our insiders joining us to talk about all those topics in two minutes and more on our big board. stay with us. especially on class picture day! you have to stay clean.

welcome back. time for our big board. we have t.j. holmes at the table and our team of insiders standing by live for more on today's top stories and begin with a new shark warning. a beach on martha's vineyard was shut down wednesday after a possible hammerhead sighting.
7:40 am
earlier this summer shark sightings forced to close a stretch of beach in california. but a new app that could help avoid a close encounter with a great white. joining us now discovery shark week filmmaker joe romeiro. good to have you with us, okay. we've had closings this season and we had a record last year so what's going on here, joe? >> well, there's no real rise in shark numbers and sharks haven't had a vendetta against us or anything. there's a lot more activity near the shores, there's a lot of people going to the beaches with the rise in temperature and a lot more sharks near the shoreline because this is a natural time of year to migrate to the area. so with those two coming into play, you could see a lot more people seeing sharks at this time of year but this new app is very exciting. we're able to determine lat and longitude of where they are and tell people where they are and pinpoint wherever they are. >> last family said they used the app and saved them from
7:41 am
danger from a great white that was in the area. how does it work? >> well, the app is actually when the atlantic white shark conservancy goes out twice to three times a week identifying the animals and tagging the animals but also able to track them so if the animals are seen anywhere near the beaches we give a lat and longitude of where they are so people can determine where they are on the actual app. >> what's the name of the app? we have to give the name. >> the name of the app is sharktivit you can find it on iphone right now. we're working on an android version. >> we'll move on to new research raising big questions about those, you know, at times very frustrating self-checkouts at stores. do you guys use them do you use them. >> i do. >> could they turn honest shoppers into thieves? i have wondered. this t.j., you have this story. >> thief, all of you.
7:42 am
got to be ashamed of yourself, okay. this new research looks at all of these paid -- these self-serve self-pay options in stores. you don't even have to talk to an employee. how does this turn into a thief. you go in, you scan, doesn't scan and eventually you get frustrated and say oh heck with it and throw it in your bag. you didn't mean to but now -- going with the intent of stealing but now you're a thief and the technology doesn't work and feel justified like, wow, this thing didn't work, i got somebody to be and now lara and robin are thelma and louise and y'all are on the thieves on the run. >> this booming voice comes on did not scan, you shouldn't put it in the bag. >> of course, you shouldn't. >> but it's happening. aren't there cameras and things around. >> there are cameras and also employees close by but here's the thing, so what. who is going to come and prosecute you because you have a built-in excuse. oh, my goodness, i thought i scanned that. oh, my bad.
7:43 am
>> so numbers will go up. >> what they're seeing is that people put these in place to try to cut down on employee hours and save money. now it's costing you more because you're losing more in revenue in theft so it's not really -- >> prices go up. >> any advice for people who want to use them but do get frustrated. >> i'm saying, go ahead, tale away, no, we're not saying that. it's going to get frustrated. we use it all the time in new york and just take a minute. >> and figure it out. >> sometimes you do it fast. >> you do use those things. >> save a lot of time. >> it does. finally, have you ever dreamed of fly me to the moon. ♪ fly me to the moon >>. ♪ fly me to the moon >> thank you, control room. >> that dream could be closer to coming true for the first time. the faa is approving a private company's plan to launch a spacecraft to the moon, joining us now none other than former nasa astronaut and our good friend mike massimino. a lot are excited about this.
7:44 am
this is a big deal, right, mike? >> yeah, it is. it's kind of ground breaking. up until now, the only entities that have flown spacecraft to the moon have been governments and large governments like united states, russia, china, but now they've gotten permission from our government to not only launch a rocket to the moon but to land on the moon and do a little exploring so this is a pretty big deal. >> so the ceo of moon express says this could really happen. we've heard it before but this really could happen within the next ten years. are you buying that? do you think we'll be able to go to the moon? >> i sure hope so. you know, there's two sides. one you get permission and ask your mom can i go to the moon and your mom says, sure. now you got to figure out how to get there. your mom is not going to take you there so they have to figure out how to get there. they have a plan in place. it's not going to be easy. just to give you an idea the international space station where we have astronauts now,
7:45 am
250 miles away. the moon about 250,000 away so the space station where we is less that 0.1%. it's far away off and wasn't be easy but we have to root for these guys. they have to be successful in order for us to keep exploring and rooting for them and think why not. 15 years, flights to the moon. >> you said not going to be easy. not going to be cheap either, i would imagine. big price tag. >> no, it's not but there are some really smart entrepreneurs if you see like not just going to the moon now, you know, flying cargo to lower orbit and trying to explore mars. very good successful entrepreneurs who see tourism, resources available to them in space and they see a way to make money and could be a golden age like we saw in aviation a hundred years ago and hopefully on the brink of a golden age of space exploration. >> would you go to the moon, joe? you're around sharks all the
7:46 am
