10:00 pm
really. >> he turned off the camera 30 minutes ago. >> what? thanks for joining us here own cnn. i'm rose disease mary church. >> i'm john vause. the second texas nurse infected with ebola apparently was never told she shouldn't fly. how her case could change the way health officials are handling this deadly virus. plus this -- >> in liberia working in an ebola unit i think is delusional. i'm very nervous. >> doctors and nurses explain why it's so difficult to learn the proper safety protocols.
10:01 pm
>> also ahead, isis has been locked in a battle for the syria town of kobani for days now. a military expert explains why coalition air strikes are not likely to break the siege. >> sk of course, we begin with ebola outbreak. a second u.s. nurse in texas is diagnosed with this disease. amber vinson was part of the team that treated thomas duncan before he died at a dallas hospital. she flew on a flight before she was diagnosed. now 76 other workers from that same hospital are put on the no-fly list. they may also change the body temperature they consider to be a possible sign of ebola. >> vinson has now arrived at emery hospital in atlanta. >> reporter: the second infected nurse amber vinson is a 29-year-old registered nurse from ohio.
10:02 pm
she like nurse nina pham had close contact with dpun can before he died with ebola. after carrying for duncan, vinson flew to ohio to work on wedding plans. she then flew from dallas to cleveland on frontier airlines flight 1143 monday evening, just one day before her ebola diagnosis. >> although she did not report any symptoms, and she did not meet the fever threshold of 100.4, she did report at that time that she took her temperature and found it to be 99.5. >>. >> reporter: the cdc said she should not have flown. >> we want to deal with facts, not fear. >> reporter: battles on two fronts as health fishlgs scramble to contain the deadly ebola crisis and mitigate criticism of preparedness. >> we've been sounding the alarms that our nurses are not protected. they're not prepared to handle
10:03 pm
ebola or any other pandemics, and the protocols that should have been in place in dallas were not in place. >> reporter: among questions about protocols and procedures, serious allegations from the nurses union representatives. >> were the protocols breached? the nurses say there were no protocols. nurses had to interact with mr. dup can with whatever protective equipment was available at the time when he had copous amounts of diarrhea and vomiting, which produces a lot of contagious fluids. >> reporter: they say the gear was insufficient and left them exposed and the guidelines were constantly changing. >> a lot has been said about what may or may not have occurred to cause our colleagues to contract this disease, but it's clear there was an exposure somewhere, sometime in their treatment of mr. duncan. >> reporter: the worst, they add, may be yet to come. >> at the hospital, we have a
10:04 pm
situation involving 77 people, two of which have tested positive for ebola. we are preparing contingencies for more, and that is a very real possibility. >> well, some people watching the coverage of amber vinson being flown to emery university are asking questions about the man without a protective suit. take a look at this video. it shows the man holding a clipboard and wearing street clothes as vinson is taken on to that plane. now at one point, he is handed an orange bag from one of the people in hazmat suits. it is a hazmat trash bag, so we don't know what exactly is in that. but ktvt says it did some investigating but was not able to determine who the man is. the cdc told the station they don't see any problem since the man maintained a safe distance
10:05 pm
and vinson was wearing protective gear. but the reason why we're showing you this is because of the public perception. the whole problem at the moment has been that this has gotten out of hand because the hospital, the cdc, they've dropped the ball on many occasions. and this is at the moment, john, you know, we're trying to -- the authorities are trying to contain this, trying to contain the outbreak, and when you see this sort of lapse, it's a concern for people. we don't know what was in the trash bags. >> they say he kept a safe distance away from vinson. he was never in close contact with her, so he was never in any danger. he did get on the plane at one point. we don't know if he got off the plane. but a lot of people are watching this and of course, it's the optics of all of this. all along there have been missteps by the cdc, different messages put out just in regards to nurse vinson. she was apparently told that she shouldn't -- everything was okay, it was okay to fly. and so now they're saying, you
10:06 pm
know, originally they said she shouldn't have been on the plane. there's been the wrong message continually coming out. that's all part of it. >> we'll keep an eye on it. >> for the second day in a row, the u.s. president has canceled travel plans to deal with the ebola outbreak. >> the pentagon is ready to announce that military reservists will be called to africa. >> it's simple, america must lead the humanitarian crisis over there. but it's also the single most important thing we can do to prevent a more serious ebola outbreak in this country, making sure what we get is a raging epidemic right now in west africa under control. >> and that raging epidemic as this killed nearly 1,200 people in sierra leon. >> people in the capital are becoming fed up to america's response to this ongoing
10:07 pm
tragedy. jim clancy explains. >> reporter: the ebola crisis triggers unrest in sierra leon. angry residents of a densely populated neighborhood demanding authorities do more after they say the body of a suspected ebola victim was left in the street for two days. outraged clouds barricaded the street threatening to keep the blockade until action was taken. they say authorities are slow to respond to the 117 emergency hotline and feel a barricade is the only way to get their attention. >> reporter: security forces responded by firing tear gas and shooting rounds from assault rifles to disperse the crowd.
10:08 pm
>> reporter: meantime, this woman also suspected of having ebola sits just meters from the body. witnesses say they are fearful the disease will continue to spread if health authorities don't take quicker action. >> a red cross burial team eventually did arrival and remove the body. the government of sierra leon was not immediately available to comment on the incident. the world health organization reports more than 4,400 people have died from this ebola outbreak. jim clancy, cnn.
10:09 pm
>> and here's a look at how the number of ebola cases has skyrocketed since the outbreak began. using numbers from the world health organization, you can see there were just a handful of cases in west africa in late march and early april. but in less than eight months those figures have exploded and are now nearing 9,000 cases. well, outside of west africa, health officials say there are at least 17 confirmed cases of the virus in the u.s. and europe. that includes patients who have recovered and those currently in treatment. there's been one death in the u.s., one in germany and two in spain. and most of these cases are health or aide workers who were infected with ebola while in west africa then sent back to their home country for treatment. well, the first person to actually contract ebola outside of africa in the current outbreak was a nurse's assistant in spain. she had been treating a missionary infected in west
10:10 pm
africa. nic robertson has more on the hope for her recovery. >> reporter: outside the hospital where her friend is fighting for her life, teresa messa tells me she has welcome news. >> translator: she will survive. i'm convinced, we're all convinced she will survive. >> teresa messa is ebola victim teresa romero and her husband's only independent link to the outside world. when she speaks, spain listens. and so we will. >> translator: we need to be cautious. we have to wait a few days. and she tells us teresa romero has been talking to her husband for the first time for more than ten minutes. her first question, she says, about her dog excalibur, who spanish authorities euthanized. >> translator: he said don't wor worry. and he said i don't know anything about him because i'm
10:11 pm
isolated here. and he must be okay. i don't have any news about him. but he is a bit affected by it. he started crying. >> reporter: her husband knows the true. her dog is dead but can't bear to tell his wife. he has a question for her, too. >> translator: he asked if she was going to continue taking care of ebola patients after this, and she said of course, yes, it is my profession. and i'm not scared. i have the antibodies now. >> reporter: teresa romero, last week castigated by officials for her alleged clumsiness contracting ebola is fast becoming not just a darling of her nation but offering hope and help for future ebola patients. nic robertson, cnn, madrid, spain. well, still to come here on cnn. coalition air strikes are taking aim at isis, but are they doing any good? we'll tell you why one retired air force colonel says the strategy is all wrong. plus it's been six months since
10:12 pm
a south korea ferry sank carrying hundreds. and there are still missing passengers. we'll hear from family members who refuse to leave the crash site until their loved ones have been found. i was out for a bike ride. i didn't think i'd have a heart attack. but i did. i'm mike, and i'm very much alive. now my doctor recommends a bayer aspirin regimen to help prevent another heart attack. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

10:14 pm
the united states has carried out air strikes in the syrian city of kobani.
10:15 pm
the pentagon says the air campaign has killed hundreds of isis fighters. more are streaming in. >> the air strikes have made room for an offensive against some isis positions. the pentagon admits that progress is being made. >> there are areas where we are having success. to sustain itself and to operate. they are don'ting to feel the pressure, which is one of the reasons why we think they're going after kobani so badly. i think part of it is they really want a win. because they're not getting a win everywhere. >> official line coming from the pentagon, there's growing skepticism about the obama strategy and just how effective those air strikes really are. for more, we're joined by military analyst rick francona. thanks for being with us.
10:16 pm
i guess now they have a name for the campaign. operation inherent result. it just seems like they don't have a strategy. it all seems kind of peace meal. >> it's not only piecemeal, but i guess you would call it strategy light. the sorty count is just not enough to make an impact. what the airmen would like to see is 100 to 150 sor ties a da range. now, there's reluctance on the part of the pilots when we don't have people on the ground. >> that seems to be a problem. kosovo, there was 100 a day. operation storm, there was about 1,000 at one point. but you've got to have the targets to hit. right now blowing up trucks are using $200,000 bombs to blow up $10,000 trucks.
10:17 pm
>> that's a real issue. and isis has learned how to space out their equipment. before the air campaign began, we would see these long convoys of trucks all bunched up. we would see them butcher to bumper so they could be maintained. as soon as we announced the air strikes we gave them about two weeks notice, they dispersed everything. so now rather than being able to use weapons to take out many trucks, now you have to do it one by one. very expensive, very hard to do, and often very hard to find. >> and the longer this goes on, the longer it won't work because the trend lines aren't going in the right direction. the other side of the strategy improving the iraqi army, that isn't happening either. >> yeah. i think these two things are working in tandem, john. what we're seeing is the air strikes are doing these ones and twosies of knocking out a tank here or there. when a pilot sees a target, he can certainly engage it, but we're seeing isis being much
10:18 pm
more effective on the ground. they're conducting multiple operations, running operations in kobani, 400 miles away from where they're running operations in baghdad. they have effective command and control. at the same time, the iraqi army has not demonstrated the capability to take back territory in isis. so we've got this very bad situation that is worsening. >> and we got this situation of kobani. they picked up the pace of the air strikes the last few days. kobani is either crucially strategic to isis or is a total distraction. which one is it? >> i'm going to go into the total distraction. i don't want to say that kobani is not important. of course it's important to the turks because they have a humanitarian crisis on their hands. it's important to the syrian-kurds because they live there. and it's important to isis because they would like to secure that last pocket of resistance. but in the big scheme of things, militarily, this is really not
10:19 pm
significant. if kobani falls, it's really not going to change the conduct of the kwar or the outcome of the war. tactically, it could be important, strategically, it just isn't. >> thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. >> and still to come here on cnn, more than a dozen hikers have died in heavy snowfall in the himalayas. instead of mailing everyone my vacation photos, i'm saving a ton of time by posting them to my wall. oh, i like that one. it's so quick! it's just like my car insurance. i saved 15% in just 15 minutes. i saved more than that in half the time.

10:22 pm
unseasonally heavy snowstorms have caused deaths in the himalayas. 17 climbers were killed on tuesday. the army released these images of one survivor being rescued. >> we turn now to our meteorologist who joins us with more on this. it was a surprise, wasn't it? why didn't anyone predict this? >> this is the best time of the year to go trekking across the himalay himalayas, guys. also the autumn season, the best time to get up here, because the dry pattern begins to kick in. that typically is the pattern across the region. we had a tropical cyclone, equivalent to a category three hurricane that made land fall on the east coast of india. we show you the moisture where it tracks over the roof top of our planet. some mountains are higher than
10:23 pm
23,000 feet high. of course, at these elevations, this becomes a major snow event across the region. you don't see it too often, but the timing is certainly not good for this time of year. this is already one of the deadliest tragedies for this time of the world. 16 people died and lost their lives because of an ice avalanche across portions of the himalayas with 17 fatalities and the number could exceed that. but i want to show you the amount of moisture that's come down. we don't have any official rain gauges or any sort of reliable observation site. but we do have modeling that can tell us how many moisture came down. some 200% to 300% of the norm, which was roughly eight to 12 inches of presiptable water and moisture causing destruction across this region. the moisture begins to retreat,
10:24 pm
the monsoons turns off and the dry weather pattern becomes prominent here. any sort of moisture that is pushed up against the mountains, reference to akin to taking a sponge and filling it with water and pushing it up against the wall and having the water drain down. at these elevations, this translates to very heavy snowfall, which is what transpired across this portion of nepal in recent days. and the numbers could increase in the coming days with potentially more people on the mountain when this occurred. >> pedram, thanks for that. >> well, it has been half a year now since the tragic sinking of a ferry in south korea. hundreds of lives were lost, many schoolchildren. >> some of the families endure the agonizing wait for their loved ones. they're waiting for their remains to be found.
10:25 pm
>> reporter: sitting and waiting as they have for the past six months. the forgotten family of south korea's ferry sinking, their child or relative still missing in the water to the yellow sea. april 16, a passenger ferry sank off the south coast, killing more than 300 people. the majority of them schoolchildren on a field trip. overloading of cargo, much of which wasn't tied down properly contradicted to the sinking, according to officials, an accident that never should have happened. devastated a nation. this woman is still living that nightmare with her husband. looking at photos of their 16-year-old daughter. they refuse to accept she may never be found. we need to find our child, she says. we can't leave until my child is found. even if we die here, we need to stay until we find her. body after body was brought ashore in the weeks after the
10:26 pm
disaster, but no one has been found since july. the search continues. winter is fast approaching. where the search operation has been based has become a memorial for those who lost their lives. people come to pay respects. each yellow ribbon is a prayer or a message of support. two of the families are still living here at the port. they're refusing to leave until their loved one has been found. now, their lives have been at a standstill for the past six months. the same could be said of this country's political system. a protest tent has been set up by some families in the heart of seoul, calling for the truth. but an investigation into what went wrong has not even started. politicians and families still arguing over what it should look like and who will lead it. parliament has been crippled for months. thousands of draft bills sit unread. and back in jindho, ten families
10:27 pm
waiting for their loved ones to be found are sickened that their loss has become political. i feel embarrassed to live in a country like this, says park. my husband says we should move out of the country when we find our daughter. we can't trust this country anymore. they're not the only grieving family to feel this way. paula hancocks, cnn, south korea. >> all right, we'll take a short break. but just ahead here on cnn, an ebola survivor weighs in on the crisis. hear why dr. kent brantley says there's a lot of irrational fear about ebola spreading in the u.s. your 16-year-old daughter

10:31 pm
duncan. she's in atlanta because of a possible walkout of nurses at the texas hospital where she works. >> coalition air strikes in and around the syrian city of kobani have killed hundreds of isis fires but re-enforcements are streaming in, even as the allied air campaign intensifies. the pentagon says some progress is being made, but admits the city might still fall to isis. >> day four of oscar pistorius' sentencing hearing starts in just a couple of hours from now. on wednesday, the prosecutor had a heated exchange with a probation officer who thinks pistorius should get community service and house arrest. pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide for killing his girlfriend reeva steenkamp. the ebola crisis will be top of the agenda in the coming hours. eu leaders will meet how they can improve airport screening from the infected countries.
10:32 pm
the world health organization will hold a news conference who update its standards and practices. >> and the british prime minister will meet with the government's emergency response team. >> the charity that's been at the center of the ebola outbreak since the beginning says global attention is long overview. doctors without borders operates in three hot zones, liberia, sierra leone and new guinea, but it says it needs help and soon. >> it's quite clear we're reaching our limits. we have been saying that very clearly that we reached our limit, which is why we're a bit astonished is the very slow and weak capacity of other actors, including state actors, including military organization actors, like the united nas ati and so on. they are deploys as we speak,
10:33 pm
but we still don't see the result in the field. >> there's a lot of questions about the training for health works worksers, how well equipped they are before going to these areas. they're now receiving special training before they get there. >> it's 72 hours of inb instruction that could mean the difference between life and death. nick havalencia takes a look at what's involved. >> in an abandoned building in alabama, health care workers are getting ininstruction on how to treat ebola patients in the hot zone. this group of doctors and nurses will head to the three countries in west africa, affected by the ebola outbreak. this doctor says the training he gets today will mean the difference between life and death. you struggled a little bit as you take it? >> yeah, it's not easy. that was a large size and i'm not a large guy, but still i could not get those coveralls on my shoulders, without touching the outside, the contaminated
10:34 pm
side side. i'm only supposed to touch the inside, the clean side. i couldn't do it. i want to practice again. >> reporter: the procedure is modified from those used by doctors without borders. intense practice with drawing blood, cleaning vomit and even patient burial. a lot is to eliminate the inevitable human error. >> the first thing you want to do is get rid of all that bulky gear, but you have to have the muscle memory of having done it before, knowing you can do it safely and knowing that it has to take a little longer than you would like it to, and you have someone there guiding you through it so that you stay calm and you just get it all off and you walk out knowing that you're safe. >> reporter: dr. ley thinks a lot about safety with a wife and child back home in northern california, he said he's anxious about his impending trip, but for him, his concern is
10:35 pm
outweighed by compassion. >> anyone who tells you they're not anxious about going to liberia and working in an ebola unit i think is delusional. i'm very nervous. >> when why do it? >> it goes back to this idea of solidarity and eequity. it's kind of like if you're a firefighter and you signed up to fight fires and there's a fire, you should go fight that fire. >> nick valencia, cnn, aniston, alabama. reesht the high number of infection among health care workers is a growing concern. >> the world health organization says more than 400 health care workers have been infected with the virus so far. and more than half, 236 have died. >> one health care worker who survived ebola, the american aide worker and missionary who contracted the virus in liberia. >> bradley spoke about his take
10:36 pm
on the heightened fears over the outbreak. >> i think there's a lot of irrational fear about ebola spreading to the united states. if we think about what we've seen so far. we had one manhattan who came from liberia, contracted the disease there, came to america and got sick here. who else has gotten sick? two health care workers taking intimate care of him. cleaning up his bodily secretions, dealing with his blood and medical procedures. those are the two people who have gotten sick. not the 48-some-odd people being tracked by the cdc. >> the 48 who had contact with him in the community. >> no one in that group has gotten sick. it was the people taking close care of him in a hospital setting. >> you have repeatedly donated your own blood or your own plasma in order to help those who have been infected. four times now you've done it? >> three or four.
10:37 pm
>> what's that process like? >> it's very fortunate that the three patients that i've been able to donate to, they and i share the same blood type and that's why i have had the unique opportunity to help in that way. >> would you donate plasma again to another patient if you were the same blood type? >> i pray that there is no more need for plasma do nations nati this country, but isle keep doing it as much as is needed, as much as i can, if it will help, if it will potentially help save somebody's life. >> our website has a list of aid organizations. and there you will find links to their website and descriptions of the work that ire doing in west africa. >> we're going to move to hong kong now where the mood is peaceful right now, but almost three weeks into the pro
10:38 pm
democracy protests we're seeing scenes like this. the latest clashes erupted early thursday. it really seems like it doesn't take much for tempers to flare. we have to emphasize that it is calm now. this was the second day of clashes between police and protesters. what all do we know about these latest clashes and why they took place? >> well, there was an isolated incident at about 1:00 a.m. in the morning on nuthursday morni. the police moved in to arrest him, and at that point, a bunch of other protesters came along and tried to charge the police. you see these sorts of scuffles on the periphery on what is otherwise a very peaceful protest zone. people going to file an official complaint, and this was after
10:39 pm
that video that's been circul e circulating on the internet. a dozen police officers caught on camera beating an activist. he's in his late 30s. what's remarkable is he was already restrained before he received that beating. let's just listen to what he had to say. >> i had already been assaulted and was later assaulted yet again in a police station. i had sought legal advice as to pursuing legal action against the police and the officer concerned. >> so i had a conversation with his lawyer yesterday soon after the incident. and obviously as he says it's an ongoing investigation. this could be one of the reasons why he's not going to be giving any interviews at this point. that's the last time we heard from him.
10:40 pm
but his lawyer is continuing to talk to us. >> there was actually a news conference earlier about that particular incident, that alleged beating. and also we're hearing that hong kong's chief executive cy leung will meet with the media at the next hour. give us an idea on what's likely to be said at that news conference? >> we're at an interesting stage in this investigation. it's obviously in its early stages. we have just seen this video come out. there was an q&a scheduled this morning that actually got postponed. we don't know why that got foes poened. c.y. leung in just a short while will be holding a briefing. if there is a q and a, there will be questions over what was seen on the video.
10:41 pm
one would assume they might address it. c.y. leung said procedure would be followed in that investigation. this followed a police statement in which the police acknowledged these were plain clothes policemen and they would be conducting an independent or impartial investigation. so we are awaiting that meeting, that briefing. and we will certainly update you should anything come of it. rosemary? >> live from the protest zone there. we will, of course, bring you the details of that news conference if there's anything newsworthy come out of that. still to come here after the break, testimony today in the oscar pistorius hearing, putting reeva steenkamp's cousin on the stand was a pretty smart move.
10:42 pm
10:43 pm
10:44 pm
>> in oscar pistorius' hearing wednesday, reeva steenkamp's cousin talked about the devastation of hearing her cousin had been killed. >> reporter: day three of oscar pistorius' sentencing hearing. and what we heard was a family's grief laid bear. there is reeva steenkamp's family talk about the
10:45 pm
devastation of losing her. >> i was lying back with my feet on the dash and the radio deejay came on and he said breaking news, not confirmed, and he kept saying that. he said it about four or fife times. and i remember thinking this must be big. just hurry up and get on with it. and i said to my husband, oh, just spit it out. then he said oscar pistorius -- and i remember the moment he said his name i jumped up in the front seat, and i froze, the next words were allegedly shot his girlfriend. and i remember saying to my husband, i hope to god he's cheating on reeva. >> why would this very emotional personal testimony impact the judge.
10:46 pm
>> the harm is a recognized aggravating factor. today's testimony was essentially impact statement, except it was told in one of the word's of the family members and what more powerful way cowl you have to drive home to the court the death and the devastation caused in the wake of this offense. >> so this is really all the state needs, you were saying. >> it is surprising in light of how effective today's testimony was that mr. nell spent so long cross-examining the defense witnesses on fine details of their testimony, knowing that he had this incredibly effective testimony waiting to be put before the court, which will certainly weigh on the mind of the judge when she is determining what is an appropriate sentence in this matter. >> we will have complete live coverage for you as day four of
10:47 pm
the sentencing phase gets under way. >> just a few moments ago, the hawaiian islands had a rare encounter with a tropical storm and it may happen again fairly soon and it could happen in the most popular part of the islands. >> let's turn again to our meteorologist who has all the details. >> we've had 55 years of data to show tropical storms and hurricanes impacting this region. in that 55 year, only 12 storms have come within even 100 kill meters or 60 miles of the hawaiian islands. three have made land fall in recorded history. the 2014 storm, back before that, it was 1992 and 1959, it was hurricane dot and that's really it. nothing else but sides those have impacted the hawaiian islands directly as a tropical feature. but at this point, we have tropical storm anna. some shear really beginning to
10:48 pm
cut away at the top of the storm system. 500 miles to the east of the hawaiian islands. they start off in an area that's suitable for tropical act fif pi. warm water, low wind sheer. but to the west, the north pacific high gives you mild and dry summers for california. it's also the reason why we have the trade winds, but all of this brings in dry air, cooler waters and makes it unusual for storms to make land fall. but look at the models friday night into saturday. just about every single one of them, want to bring you south of the big i land of hawaii. a lot of them threatening porss of oahu, potentially kuauai.
10:49 pm
