12:03 am
but they are trying to move people out. they and the police are trying to move people out. and you got a little bit of agitation going on here. people trying to get a rise out of the police. but it is basically peaceful. >> protest also took place thursday in cincinnati, ohio. more demonstrations are expected there in the coming days. >> thousands of people in other cities have been marching with baltimore. as you just mentioned, philadelphia is one of them as well. city of brotherly love. and cnn's poppy harlow spoke with people here. >> began with the protests around 4:30 this afternoon. then it turned into a march on the street in philadelphia that so far lasted about three hours. largely the protest has been peaceful. i want to emphasize that the chief of police inspector here telling me that these are people that need to have their voices heard. they deserve to protest.
12:04 am
and exercise lawfully. he expects it to be a loud, large and lawful protest. it has in large been that. there was a confrontation with police right at the entrance of interstate 95 where police lined up on horses, on their bicycles. there was a clash between police and protesters there for about 20 minutes. then it opened up and protesters were allowed to continue walking on the streets. what i'm hearing from people here, from people of really all ages, white citizens, back citizens, saying they want information on the case of freddie gray. they say it is lack of opportunity for american youth in this country. one young african-american attorney telling me she wants to see change within the system. more opportunity, more room for
12:05 am
economic growth for many people that she feels are not getting a fair shot. they are protesting to have their voices heard. there are a lot of signs, aligning with baltimore and the name of the protest with the group that organize it guys is philadelphia. is baltimore. >> poppy harlow with baltimore police. they are learning through their investigation that van carrying gray made a previously unreported stop. >> yes. and other new reports are raising questions about what happened to gray inside that van. cnn justice controversy pamela brown is looking into that. >> the medical examiner found that gray's deadly injuries were caused when he slammed into the back of the van apparently breaking his neck according to cnn affiliate wjla which spoke to multiple law enforcement officials briefed on the
12:06 am
findings. sources telling wjla the head injury matched a bolt in the back of the van. when that injury happened is not clear. the fatal trip inclouded yet another stop. a stop that police not only did not disclose but apparently did not know happened until recently. raising new questions about grigri gray's fraemt after his arrest. >> we discovered this stop during the ongoing review of all cttv cameras. >> police say the information came from a private camera at this intersection. not from the police officers involved with his arrest. and not from police logs of the van's trip. >> obviously it raises all kind of questions. somebody in the police department knew about the stop. whatever it suggested, whoever was involved in the van trip was not forthcoming. >> first the police van pulled over here. this shows police putting leg
12:07 am
irons on freddie gray. police say the new stop happened next in front of this corner store. after that, the van made a third stop police say to quote deal with gray. that's when he asked allegedly for medical attention but didn't receive it then. a further and final stop is when police put another prisoner in the van. gray only got help when the van reached the police station 25 minutes later p. the other prisoners could. see gray but could hear him. >> he said he heard freddie thrashing about. >> the other prisoner also said gray was intentionally trying to hurt himself. >> it is shaky statement and i think the fact that it is release said a transparent effort to release the transparency of the case. >> freddie gray's family denies
12:08 am
that freddie gray would have hurt himself in the van. >> any suggestion that freddie gray hurt himself in the van is something the family disagrees with. you should never check your common sense at the door because pause the law is involved. in this case, common sense tells us that freddie gray did not sever his own spoinl spinal cord. >> they are citing another prisoner in the back of the police van. i want to emphasize a prisoner that says he could hear freddie gray but not see him because of a partition. he said fred freddie gray was trying to hurt himself. you dismiss that. >> we have to keep it in context. and the police department said
12:09 am
the other prisoner didn't hear much of anything. then we hear the very same prisoner did hear mr. gray and he thinks mr. gray is trying to harm himself. place this in context, we can't respond to it because there are so many different stories in place, we have to get to the facts and we don't have the facts. >> we may have facts soon. the medical examiner's office says gray's autopsy report could be sent over to the prosecutor later today or the next few days. >> we are hearing more from the mayor of baltimore who said that freddie gray's family aep the entier city deserves answers. >> speaking of a assumity of community and faith leaders, mayor blake made a fiery vow for justice. >> we will get justice for freddie gray. believe you me we will get justice. and we will do it because we will work together because if with the nation watching, three

thousands of people are marching in solidarity in baltimore. including the city of brotherly love, philadelphia and new york. >> there is a curfew for the third straight night. crowds marchs peacefully on thursday ro testing the death of freddie gray, the african-american who suffered a fatal spinal injury while in police custody. >> there are several accounts emerging about what exactly happened after gray's arrest. according to lu enforcement sources con tkted by our affiliate wjal, investigators found that injury gray suffered happened in the back of the police van an not during his arrest. baltimore police turned over their findings to state's attorney on thursday. she is conducting her own investigation into this case. >> men time, some say instead of having police investigate their own department maybe an independent investigation should
12:18 am
be conducted. >> if we are trying to build relationships and trust with our communities, it is often seen by communities that that is much better to do when you have outside independent investigators looking into the fatalities that may have occurred as a result of one of your officers. but it becomes critically important to, the flip side of that, is this for years police departments have done their own homicide investigations as it relates to fatalities. and they have done a great job as well, too. we are in a very different era of policing today. we are at very different time of policing too which means now we have to move those investigation to independent outside sources who will take a lock at them. because one thing that is not going to change, forensics evidence, witness statements, always going to be the same.
12:19 am
and that's just not going to change regardless of who does the investigation. but i support the independent investigation. >> the marilyn's state attorneyes a office released a statement saying while they depend on the baltimore police department's investigation they will not rely solely on their findings. the death toll from that massive earthquake in nepal now climbed past 6200 people. we know now that 14,000 were injured. >> but rescuers keep searching for roens like this. 24-year-old woman found alive in the rubble of a hotel where she worked. five days after the quake. then there is this 15-year-old boy dehydrated but otherwise okay. he spent the past five days shielded by a motorcycle under a collapsed apartment building in katmandu. >>.
12:20 am
>> when you consider what he went through and you see him talking there, it is just simply amazing. >> like latida. i hope his family survived as well. now another one, but just five months old. and he is dribringing so much h to this area. >> dr. sanjay gupta catches up with his family. >> a baby just five months old rescued after being buried under the rubble for 22 hours. more remarkable, the baby barely
12:21 am
has a scratch. so let me tell you what happened. that morning mom was out shopping. she comes home at 11:56 in the morning right as the earthquake hits. she watches her building come tumbling to the ground. she knows her children were on the second floor. all she could do was scream and then start to dig. just look at this rubble and imagine what this mother of two must have felt like. >> translator: we started digging out our little girl. when she came out we kept searching for the boy. then that when we heard the voice. we were assured the little boy was alive. after we heard the voice we started digging again. >> for the last five days all around nepal there has been digging, endless digging. using axes, small pans but mostly by hand and there have been truly remarkable successes. this teenage boy, this 11-year-old goirl. but a 5-month-old baby.
12:22 am
>> my neighbor said it is worthless. it is destiny. if he is destined to live, he will. or else god would take him away. >> god didn't take the little boy away. instead, return had him. dusty, hungry, but heal think. . >> if this doesn't stir up something in your heart, i don't know he what will. >> we may never know why this adorable little boy lived when nearly 6,000 died. it could be he landed in the perfect space. not crushed. and with enough oxygen and water. we can't know what it was exactly. but we do know this. his mom never gave up hope. sanise has become a symbol of his mom's hope. of the entire villages hope.
12:23 am
of nepal's hope. dr. sanjay gupta, cnn, nepal. >> his story telling just takes you there. >> lock that baby for another hour. how sweet. >> an amazing story. now to chile's volcano it erupted for a theirs time on thursday and is spewing ash high up into the sky. >> derek van dam is with us. they have warned us, it could happen a third time. >> and it did. >> doing it began. >> and last week it erupted two times. people were evacuated. sent away and they started to trickle back. then the third eruption occur owned thursday and they today deal with this. lock at the visuals coming from that area. can you see the volcanic ash spewing straight up into the atmosphere. where is it going? i'm about to tell you. another kind of vantage point of the calbuco volcano taken from
12:24 am
the west. can you see the columns spraying up from above us. just a combination of rock and ash and even some laugh why at the base. now this is what turned the landscape into. this is what i consider a great desert. not something you want to deal with. while that is what people today contend with, an ash covered landscape. front yard. buildings. and that causes concern. especially when you mix in rain fall and ash makes it very, very heavy. more on that one in just one second. there is a 20-kilometer evacuation zone around the circumference of the calbuco volcano. but the other concern is where is the ash cloud going to head? you can see what is a landscape photo. can you see how the wind pick up that volcanic ash. we look, as meteorologist to the upper level winds to tell us where we expect the volcanic ash to travel. we do have a general
12:25 am
northeasterly flow. adjacent countries. that being argentina, uruguay and ash in days coming ahead. we have rain in the forecast as cold frnt front sweeps across southern portions of south america. that brings into light all kind of problems. think of the volcanic ash on the ground, creating rivers of mud for instance. it is very, very heavy. four to five times as heavy as snow fall. you can imagine what that means for structures and building with this heavy wet volcanic ash accumulating on top of structures. they can collapse and that can be a major concern as well. hopefully there hasn't been any reported fatalities or injuries from this volcano. but it makes for interesting reporting. >> thanks, derek. >> thank you. >> nasa says its space probe
12:26 am
crashed into the planet mercury ending an 11-year mission. the news is no surprise. the probe ran out of fuel. nasa launched messenger back in 2004. traveling more than six years to get to mercury. revealing thick ice in polar regions which is closest to the sun. even though the mission is over, scientist say they will study messenger's data for years. so thank you, messenger. >> next on cnn, the mystery of freddie gray's death grows more complex, as there are several questions about exactly what happened to him.
