announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo, al cam and michaela pereira. >> good morning, we have breaking overnight, a situation that could have been dozens killed on a train loaded with hundreds of passengers. instead, it's about three bone fied american heroes. spencer stone, anthony sadler and alek receiving the highest honor for bravery. why? they took down a gunman on a packed paris high speed train. >> the attacker is speaking out saying he's dumbfounded by allegations he's connected to islamist extremists. he says he was on the train to rob passengers because he was hungry. let's get to nic robertson live in paris. give us the latest. >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. the french president honored the
three american heroes, praising them by their actions, they avoided the ultimate carnage on the train, an attacker with over 300 bullets. they should be an inspiration for us all. spencer stone with his arm still in a sling from injuries suffered over the weekend in bringing down the gunman. he led the way in to the french presidential palace. this morning, three americans arriving to a red carpet. the french president honoring them the highest award for bravery. the honor came after this incredible scene was viewed around the world. a gunman hog tied on the floor of a passenger train. the close friend said they acted on instinct. >> it was do something or die. >> it wasn't a conscious decision, we acted. >> the 23-year-old spencer
stone, led the charge. >> i saw he has an ak-47. it was jammed or not working or he was trying to charge the weapon. alek hit me on the shoulder and said let's go. >> reporter: authorities say they along with a british national prevented what could have been a bloody massacre. >> tackled him, hit the ground. alek came up, put him on the ground while i put him in a choke hold. he kept pulling more weapons left and right. >> reporter: the suspect is a moroccan national who boarded the train carrying a small arsenal of weapons, including an assault rifle with at least eight magazines, an automatic pistol with extra ammunition and a box cutter which he used to slash stone multiple times, nearly severing his stone.
>> he's not dead because he took action to protect himself and everyone there. plus, being an angel in the room. >> reporter: stone's father believing it was destiny, the three men moving from coach to first class because of better wi-fi. >> i expect nothing less of my brother. >> reporter: radical islamic networks across europe, including a french isis cell in turkey. his lawyer says he denies he is a terrorist. instead, he intended to rob passengers on the train with weapons he found in the park. stone rushed to help another who was wounded in the neck. >> i stuck my two fingers in the hole. pushed down and the bleeding stopped. >> over the weekend, president obama called the men personally, commending them for their courage and quick action.
the french president saying they deserve commending and inspiration that others should be aware if faced. the french president was quoting them saying if you are presented with a crisis, then you need to act as these men did. chris? >> as we both know well, nic, easy to say, tough to do. boy did they step up on the train. what a difference it made. thank you for the reporting. let's try to walk you through what happened here. we have this train route. we told you where it is. paris, amsterdam. just about an hour before it gets to where it's supposed to, everything starts to unfold. as you heard from nic, one moment, they are all on the train. the next moment, one of the passengers coming out of the restroom confronts the gunman preparing for this. his lawyer says he found the weapons in the park. authorities don't believe that. that passenger gets hit. then, what happens is these
americans are up in the other part. they hear about it. they make a decision. one by one, they come forward. the first guy holds him down. he starts getting slashed. he literally has his thumb severaled, a wound to his face. two buddies come to help out, put him on the ground. the interesting part of this, the aftermath is this is the guy who was hurt, that you saw there talking his way through it. there's the bad guy they have hog tied there, the alleged bad guy. another french american, a 51-year-old who also came up and took away the machine gun at one point. he reached into his pocket, grabbed a pistol, shot him and got his ak-47 back. that took us through all the events there. again, alisyn, the question is if you are brave enough and faced with a situation where there's potential harm, you step
up. >> i would love to believe i could do that, chris, but i don't think it is possible for most of us mortals. those three guys were made of a different stock. we are so proud of them here today. meanwhile, chris, there was a new york social worker on that train to paris and witnessed the horror of the attempted attack. christina coombs joins us now with more. how are you feel sng. >> exhausted. exhausted. >> i can imagine. this is overwhelming. let's go back to the beginning. what were you doing on the train to begin with? >> i had been on vacation in europe for the first time ever, which is extremely exciting for me and i was happy about it. i was traveling with a good friend of mine through italy and then amsterdam and then we parted ways in amsterdam. he went to berlin and i was to go to paris. >> you were on that train alone? >> yes. >> at what point during your ride did you realize something was unfolding?
>> i was on the train doing my make up, actually and, you know, i had the pulled out tray table out doing my make up and all of a sudden, between 5:45 and 5:50, i heard gunshots. >> you heard gunshots in your car? >> i believe after, you know, just thinking about everything that went down and the other information i have gained that i believe the gunshot happened in car 11. i was in car 12. but i was in car 12 near the entrance of 11 and 12. >> so, when you heard gunshots, when did you realize that something terrible was unfolding and you needed to take cover? >> as soon as i heard -- as soon as i heard the gunshots, myself and everyone around me ducked under their seats. i ducked under the seat and had the tray table over my head as well. i was sort of doing this and i also had my cell phone clutched in my hand underneath the seat.
>> you had your cell phone clutched and you were able to take some photos of this entire crime unfolding. we have those. you have shared them with us. what is this picture we are seeing? >> so, this photo is a man that, it appeared to me that his neck -- his neck was profusely bleeding. >> this is the first victim, you believe, shot in the neck? >> i believe, yes. he was shot in the neck and had come stumbling into the train. he had a bloody duffel bag that i also have a photo of. he first dropped the bloody duffel bag in the seat across from me, then he collapsed to the floor very close to where i was sitting. >> here is the picture of the duffel bag? >> yes. >> you are under your seat, you are taking cover and you see this man fall, with blood and you see the bloody duffel bag. what is going through your head while that's happening? >> i didn't know what to think.
i thought, oh, my god, he got shot, he's dead. i thought he, like, i'm like the neck, that's a severe area to be shot. he might be dead right now. i thought am i next? that was my first thought, am i next? are we all next? >> you thought someone was on a rampage? >> right away. i did. >> was the gunman saying anything? >> no, i didn't hear the gunman. what i believe, at this point, is the shot was fired in car 11. that the man was running away from the assailant, probably into car 12 and dropped the duffel bag and fell to the floor very close to where i was sitting. that's what i believe, that's how i believe it happened. >> you and fellow passengers are cowhering under the seat. at what point did you figure out there were three heroes on the train? >> i had seen at least two of
them while i was under my seat still and snapping photos. just to go back to that real quick. i was snapping photos not just snapping photos, i was on facebook chat with a friend. >> while it was happening? >> yes. i have the conversation. i said i messaged him and said oh my god, oh my god, there's a man with a gun, there's gunshots, a man dropped to the floor in front of me bleeding. that's when i snapped the photo of the duffel bag and the photo of him on the floor. later on, i snapped the third photo of the assailant. >> when did you realize there were people on the train who were going to try to save you? >> while i was under there still, i had -- the shots were fired, the man was bleeding. i didn't know what to think. then, actually, while i was under there, i saw a large
rifle. at first, i thought, oh, my god, is that the gunman because i didn't know yet who he was. i later learned he was one of the three men that saved all of our lives. i believe that was probably what he had taken from, maybe what he had taken from the assailant. i know he had to wrestle him and take the ammunition away. >> did you hear, during the process of this, we know there was some conversation exchanged. did you hear them talking? >> i heard one of them say i'm a paramedic, someone get this man some help. you know, he was basically trying to come to this man's rescue. >> the first victim? >> the victim with the bloody neck, the gunshot to the neck. the only victim i saw was the man who got shot in the neck. he was asking passengers in my car to get neckties, men's
neckties or a woman's scarf to make a tourniquet. >> could you tell there were three americans on the car and they were trying to quell the situation? >> i believe i only saw two of them. i don't think i saw three. but i did come out from under -- a lot of us came out from under our seats when we realized -- they communicated to us, okay, we have the mantied up. his ammunition was taken away. they did communicate that. i was still scared and shaken up. i felt a bit safer to come out of hiding, so i did that. also, they actually made us all go to the back of the car and eventually made us go to the next car, car 13, because they didn't want so many people near this man on the floor bleeding. >> what do you think it was that allowed the three americans to run toward danger, when everyone else, your reflex and mine would be to hide?
>> fight or flight, right? >> yeah. >> i know a couple of them have military background. so, i guess, i don't have military background myself, but my understanding is that, you know, if you have that training, that's probably what you are kind of programmed to do, essentially. i don't know what it was but i think they were very, very brave. i owe my life to them. i'm incredibly grateful to those three men. they are fantastic human beings, we are all grateful for what they did for us. >> what do you want to say to them? >> thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. i don't feel like i'm -- you know, the thoughts running through my mind are, am i going to die? i'm not ready die. that's how i felt. excuse me, i'm getting a little emotional. you know, i feel like i have so much more to do with my life. i'm only 28 years old.
and i have goals and everybody else on that train does as well. they saved us. you know, they are heroes. if they don't think they are heroes, i mean, they are very humble and i respect that. they are heroes. they are truly heroes and my mom wanted to say thank you so much. she's very grateful that they were on that train. >> all of your loved ones and everyone on that train's loved ones. we are happy you are safe and that you survived this and came on to share your pictures and story with us. >> thank you. >> thanks so much. >> no problem. >> michaela? >> an incredible account, alisyn, thank you for that. stock markets in asia and europe falling sharply on fears of an economic slowdown. china's shanghai composite seeing the shares wiped out. the loss on friday bleeds into
monday. what does it mean for the u.s. markets today? we have the woman on the job. christine romans has more on this. >> it's going to be ugly. you have apple shares lower, facebook shares lower. this is what it looks like around the world. i mean you have big losses in europe and shanghai closed down 8.5% wiping out all the gains for the year and a dramatic day for the year. that is a plunge. an ugly market. futures in the u.s., s&p down 2%. that's a big move. a 2% move is a big move. we are going to see more pain for your 401(k) today. why more pain? friday was terrible. the dow jones down 3%. it's below 17,000. it's the lowest level since last fall. these were some of the worst losses in four years for the market. commodities, a big loser, too. take a look at oil, below $40 a barrel. look at this. six year lows for oil.
lower gas prices. by halloween, you are going to have $2 gas. that's the upside for consumers. it's unease for anybody with energy stocks in their 401(k). it's unsettling for country that is depend on oil for their revenue. three hours until the markets open. it's going to be another ugly open. the weekend was not a speed bump for the selling. the selling is out there in full force. >> correction, what do you think the duration is? >> it is a correction for the dow so far. the s&p 500 hasn't hit it yet. it will this morning. the stocks have been going up for six years without a solid correction. some say it could be healthy for investors. >> we'll keep an eye on it. thank you. >> you're welcome. isis is on a rampage in syria. they blew up a temple that stood for years. that is what the terrorists want to do, is erase civilization.
last week, isis terrorists beheaded an 82-year-old syrian scholar who worked more than five decades as head of antiquitie antiquities. two days of violent demonstrations rocked the city and left hundreds injured. thousands pouring into the streets demanding the lebanese government resign over weeks of uncollected garbage piling up on the streets of beirut. the prime minister threatening to do that warning their country is on the verge of collapse. investigators working to find out what caused two deadly air show accidents in europe. the death toll continues to climb after a relic military jet plunged on to a busy highway. in switzerland, audiences watched in horror. ian lee is live with the latest details and new video.
ian? >> reporter: alisyn, this is as far as they are letting us get to the crash site here in southern england. it's just on the other side of this airfield here. authorities saying there's still dangerous conditions because of jet fuel that is there. today, they are expecting to remove the body of the aircraft and they expect to find more bodies with that. that's coming as we are seeing new video released showing us exactly how this happened. one from a dashcam on a car that was traveling down the highway and the majority of these people who died were people who were commuting back and forth. this has devastated this small communitied. this is also coming as there was another deadly air show accident in switzerland where two airplanes crashed. one pilot died there.
the other one was able to get out of the plane and parachute. for here, this investigation, still ongoing, still trying to figure out what exactly happened. chris? >> thank you very much, ian. this morning, joe biden could be one step closer to a run to the white house. biden held a private meeting with senator elizabeth warren saturday. michelle kaczynski joins us with more. was this a planned trip? does the administration know about it? why her? what do you think? >> it was last minute, not originally on his official schedule. even if this is what the public sees, this steps things up a notch. we saw the president go on a quiet vacation in south carolina, but we knew he was talking to advisers. last week in delaware, meeting with advisers. this meeting on saturday at the white house with elizabeth warren, the hero of many lib rap
democrats and progressives. some are seeing that as him leaning toward making the run. sources are telling cnn, he's taking this seriously, yes. the decision still has not been made. he wanted to get her take on iran, make sure she knew where he stood on the issues, especially the economy. now there is the draft biden 2016 superpac that says it's already drafting talent, looking at fund raising. in this e-mail it sent to democrats around the country, it said they have been drawing on a growing voter appetite and ground swell of grass roots interest in his candidacy. they will continue this aggressive campaign for the vice president to launch a successful bid for the nomination and eventually the nomination. that group is laying the framework. not everybody in the democratic
party see as biden run as a great idea. he is seen as a viable alternative to hillary clinton. others see it as possibly, they are going to have to choose where their loyalties lie. michaela? >> we'll have more of this coming up on "new day." we'll talk about elizabeth warren. what was that conversation about? is he thinking of asking her to be a running mate? stay with us. we'll be right back. no sixth grader's ever sat with the eighth grade girls. but your jansport backpack is permission to park it wherever you please.

all right. so we have the known and the unknown in politic this is morning. here is the known. >> which part do i get? >> the unknown. >> i know. vice president, joe biden, held a meeting with elizabeth warren this weekend. the unknown is why and what does it mean for his future? let us discuss. errol, do we know they have some pre-existing relationship? is there any reason? we heard from kaczynski this wasn't on his schedule. >> they have some kind of relationship. as the vice president, he would
have sworn her in. they don't have a close relationship. she represents an important part of the party. there is an elizabeth warren wing of the party. you have to talk to her. if you want to talk to certain progressive donors, activists and consultants and see where that part of the democratic party, where their heart is. it would be sensible for biden or frankly anyone else to get a sense of that. >> is there any other way to interpret that other than biden is getting his ducks in a row for a run? >> joe biden is certainly signaling he's running for president. does it mean he will run? that's a different question. he has to build up expectations. if he were to announce he wasn't running, that would be a very different story for him. after another month of expectations, people wondering will he or won't he?
he would get more attention for that, which is what he wants, ultimately, one way or another. he wants to be president and reach out to elizabeth warren or he doesn't want to be president. get the maximum amount of attention. >> why do you say he leaked the meeting and is looking for attention? why? >> it's what the people around joe biden have been trying to do for the past several weeks, several months, in fact. leaking -- people close to biden saying that bo biden, his late son, wanted him to run. his ole organized effort around people in the immediate biden circle, the ring around that one saying, you know, trying to lay the ground work for a presidential run should he want to do it. worked for the vice president to lay the groundwork for that. all the incentive is with the vice president right now. >> what do you think about that
theory, this is an attention getting stunt? equally. it does increase his cache even if he doesn't run? >> you heard them in the 2012 effort, they needed him for the ticket. somehow he found his way to new hampshire more often than -- which are not swing states, more often than the campaign staff wanted. he wanted to be considered. it is clear he wants to be considered. this leaked meeting, some of the other efforts he made. i tell you the conversations i would like to hear about are the calls he's making to donors and what they are saying back to him. that's going to determine his ability to put together a campaign. we shouldn't be so cynical to dismiss the idea that the people are going to decide this, not the donors and keown consultants
and elizabeth warren. it would be negligence for him to walk away even though in the polls i do better against in several match ups against republicans than hillary clinton. i am more likable within the democratic party than hillary clinton according to some of the numbers. if he can get donors to put something together, why not? >> you are always more attractive before you are in the race. do you think the obstacles to entry are a larger issue than the enticements? the organizations, the number of people working for hillary, the pockets that have been tapped for hillary. the party's disposition towards hillary. what do you think? >> i mean that's certainly a huge factor here. his poll numbers are riding skid high as you said because he's not in the political game. it's where hillary clinton's poll numbers were two or three years ago in the state department. the fact that so many obama
veterans from, you know, the president's former campaign manager are working with the hillary superpac, there's a structural problem to getting talented, qualified operatives in a small amount of time before the iowa caucuses on february 1st. things are going to be hard for the vice president. hillary clinton has quite a head start right now. >> thanks so much. great to see you. great to have all that information. mark your calendars. the next presidential debate is less than three weeks away. jake tapper will moderate the next debate, september 16th, live from the reagan library in simi valley, california. >> will do. three american heroes honored for foiling a massacre on a high speed train. it has people wondering how

i turned around and saw he had what looked to be an ak-47. it looked like it was jammed or wasn't working and he was trying to charge the weapon. alek hit me on the shoulder and said let's go. >> go is what they did. that was u.s. airman spencer stone. he helped subdue an armed man. raising concerns about the vulnerability of trains in the u.s. are current measures enough? we want to turn to the national cnn security analyst. right in her wheelhouse to talk about this. you wrote a great piece for cnn.com. in it, you reflected, a lot of us have that feeling.
should we be so lucky to sit in a situation near alek and anthony. they are not going to be everywhere. there are lessons we can learn from what happened in france. let's talk about that. the reaction of these people to run towards danger while the rest of us cowher looking for safety. what is the right thing to do in a situation like that? >> it's so fact dependent. that was my cautionary statement in the column. in some instances, not a train, but universities and colleges where there's a lot of active shooter training going on right now, what we recommend to people is to run away. to save your own life and the lives of others by not cowerring. >> in a train, it's not so easy. >> you are in a closed space. >> part of what we have to learn, coming from articles is
that the french train officials were really slow in terms of notifying people what was going on, stopping the train. you want to stop the train because then people can jump out and you have fewer people on the train. this was a combination of heroism, luck and just, you know, i love these guys. it rarely happens in my world. >> i know, in your world especially. i think all of us want to give them a hug. >> yes. >> let's talk about the security that does exist or doesn't exist on board. i know things differ from country to country and continent to continent. it sounds as though the response was slow. are transportation officials working with the workers on board to, i don't know, train them? >> i think so, but probably not enough. it's the train workers that are going to be the first responders. there has to be more training here and in europe.
the challenge is not, you know, do we have enough police officials on each train, which can be ramped up. in europe, for example, 40 million people ride the trains a day. that is, i mean, it is the commercial activity, what we talk about is flow. the flow of people, goods, commerce and business. the more security apparatus you are going to put on it, the slower that flow is going to be, which is going to have all sorts of impacts for everyone, including people's capacities to go from point a to point b. trains represent, in some ways, an alternative to the major security apparatus at airports. the more security you put on trains, the market is going to drive elsewhere to individual cars ar buses, which will become their own soft target. >> that's the issue. no, i understand, you can't replicate what we have seen happen with air travel. even that slowed us downgoing through the airport security.
it's just not scaleable when you look at transferring to rail. i want to pivot to the gunman. he has been identified. officials believe he's associated with a french isis cell within turkey. potentially, this is a lone wolf attack. his lawyer says he was hungry and on the train to rob people. give us an idea of how they can fight this lone wolf situation. >> well, one is there's surveillance we used to pick him up. what they have to do is increase the surveillance on those whose travel appears to show they have had some sort of training. the turkey/paris or turkey/france nexus we have ian before. france has a problem, it does. this refugee crisis is not a different story. it is now creating radicalism in
western european countries, which they don't have the resources or even though france is changing laws to catch all these people. it's obviously a scary combination. >> thanks so much for your expertise. >> thank you. tensions continue to escalate between north and south korea following a fatal land mine. the south offering an apology, the north refusing. the late es when we come back. all: milk! milk! milk! milk! milk! okay! fun's over. aw. aw. ♪ thirsty? they said it would make me cool. they don't sound cool to me. guess not. you got to stick up for yourself,

morning. they are demanding an apology from pyongyang. the north is making their own demands. we are live in seoul with the latest. what is the latest? >> reporter: well, the south korean government says the president, that is, says these talks that are happening right now, these talks that are stretching into the third day, that nothing will be accomplished unless north korea apologizes. she wants them to say sorry for putting land mines in the dmz, land mines that seriously injured two south korean soldiers. without it, she says, any sort of deal or peace is off. meanwhile, while this is happening, the talks long and difficult, what's happening on the ground here is south korea is detecting troop movement. the artillery forces on the front line from the north korean side, they have doubled. 70% of north korean submarines left their bases.
while the talks are aiming for a middle ground, it appears, as far as what's happening on the ground are preparations for war. >> chris? >> obvious show of force. what does it mean for the u.s.? we will follow this, thank you very much. the son of an oklahoma politician is accused of stabbing him to death. the oklahoma labor commissioner, mark costello suffered multiple wounds to his head and neck. his 26-year-old son was taken into custody. to a lighter story, the national zoo in washington is celebrating this morning after giant panda twins were born over the weekend. they are only the third set of twin cubs to be at a u.s. zoo. so far, the swins are vocalizing well and appear strong. meanwhile, their big sis turned 2 a day after her siblings were born. what a birthday bash she had

process. of course, there is this, you know, extraordinary variable relative to his son and his family and having to make that decision. but, i think you are going to see a decision from the vice president in the next four to six weeks. >> okay. you say he is doing incredibly smart things to take the temperature where he is. one of those, i guess, is meeting with senator elizabeth warren. joe biden has been in democratic politics for decades, obviously. what can she tell him about this decision? >> well, look, i think i'm not sure as the specifics of the process of that meeting. if i were advising the vice president, i would say there's a number of people that are important to meet with in a democratic party. elizabeth warren would be at the top of that list. she is an incredible voice of the democratic party. she has an incredible grass roots following.
i think one of the things tough do, as you go about this process, is listen to other people. he's meeting with elizabeth warren. he's going to talk to and it's been reported, other people in key states. >> such as, meaning fund-raisers, donors? >> well, look, i know what i read in the newspapers, he is reaching out to people in, you know, places where he's got a lot of friends, places like new hampshire, iowa, south carolina, nevada, some of the key primary states for the vice president. >> what would biden bring to the race that hillary clinton and bernie sanders don't have covered already? >> look, i think if the vice president decides to run, it's going to be about the vice president, not any of the other candidates out there. i think he brings an incredible voice for the middle class. he brings and incredible voice to civil and gay rights.
a time where the world is fluid and dangerous, the vice president probably has more experience in foreign policy than any other candidate. i would say he brings a humanity and authenticity to this race that i think voters are going to be drawn to with the vice president. >> it's interesting you use the word authenticity. many people are saying, in some strange way, the assent of trump is helping joe biden. it seems as though the populous wants an unvarnished candidate, somehow. is he the democratic counter part to donald trump? >> no. he's not. the vice president has been deeply committed to public service and public policy his entire career. he will be doing that long after whatever decision he makes here. he is not splashing in and nor,
by the way, would it be about the vice president. it would be about the american people, the middle class. i think his authenticity transcends, you know, prime time television shows or anything else. it's part of the policy and the issues he's worked on. i think that's what people care about. >> thank you for being on "new day." come back when you have spoken to the vice president and you have some scoop for us. >> all right. thanks. >> thanks so much. what is your take on all of this? tweet us #newdaycnn or facebook.com/newday. we will read them on the show. we are following lot of news. let's get to it. >> three bonified american heroes. >> the word hero has never been more appropriate. >> we just kind of acted. >> he was ready to fight to the end. >> reporter: the suspect.
>> the belief is this was connected to terrorism. >> he had a lot of ammo. intentions were clear. >> stock markets in europe and asia falling sharply. prepare for the worst losses in four years. pandemonium at the united states capital. the giant panda gave burt to a pair of baby cubs. zoo keepers had no idea the second baby was on the way. >> i was excited. i teared up a little bit. announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo ma alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> three americans were honored in france for taking down the gunman on a high speed strain. stone, sadler and skarlatos were presented medals for bravery by the french president. >> well earned. officials say the heavily armed
suspect is linked to isis. his lawyer says he found the weapons in public and was there to rob passengers because he was hungry. cnns coverage begins with nic robertson. what more have we learned? >> reporter: well, chris, i can tell you it's a rainy day here, but it hasn't dampened the spirits of the hero. they had put their lives on the line risking themselves to save the other passengers on the train from what could have been ultimate carnage. to man whose hand was injured, stone, his arm still in a sling was the first to lead the three friends in to meet the french president. this morning, three young americans arriving to a red carpet ceremony in paris. the french president presenting them with the highest award of
bravery, the legion of honor. it came after this up credible scene was viewed around the world, a gunman, hog tied on the floor of a passenger train. the close friends say they acted on instinct. >> it was either do something or die. >> it wasn't a conscious decision. we just acted. >> 23-year-old airman spencer stone led the charge. >> i saw he had what looked to be an ak-47. it looked like it was jammed or wasn't working. he was trying to charge the weapon. alek hit me on the shoulder and said let's go. >> reporter: he and his two friends along with a french and british national prevented what could have been a bloody massacre. >> when i heard they are moving, it gave me the impetus to get up and do it. >> ran down, tackled them, hit the ground. alek grabbed him and took him
down. i put him in a chokehold. >> the moroccan national boarded the plane carrying an assault riffle, including eight magazines, a pistol with extra ammunition and a box cutter, which he used to hit stone nearly severing his numb. >> he took immediate action to take action to protect himself. plus, being an angel in the room. >> his father, believing it was destiny. >> they moved to first class for better wi-fi. >> i expect nothing less from my brother. he is linked to investigations into radical islamist networks across europe, including a french isis cell in turkey. >> his lawyer says he denies he is a terrorist and instead robbed them on the train with
weapons he found in a park. one passenger was shot in the melee. stone rushed to help another who was wounded in the neck. >> i stuck two of my fingers in the hole, found what i thought to be the artery, pushed down and the bleeding stopped. >> reporter: over the weekend, president obama called the men personally commending them for courage and quick action. the french president said they are an example for others that when faced with a crisis, he was quoting anthony sadler who was asked about this, how he was impacted and felt about how it happened. that, alone, a huge honor here. do what these three young heroes did when presented with a situation of crisis. stand-up and do something. a very high honor indeed. alisyn? >> we are so proud of them back
here at home, nic. thanks for that. a new york social worker witnessed the horrifying attack. we spoke with her about what she saw as she traveled on the train for what was supposed to be her first vacation to europe. >> so, i had been on vacation in europe for the first time ever, which was extremely exciting for me. i was happy about it. i was traveling with a good friend of mine through italy, then amsterdam, then we parted ways in amsterdam. he went to berlin and i was to go to paris. >> you were on the train alone? >> yes. >> at what point did you realize something was unfolding? >> i was on the train doing my make up, actually. i had the fold out tray table out doing my make up. all of a sudden, between 5:45 and 5:50, i heard gunshots. >> you heard gunshots in your car. >> i believe after, you know,
just thinking about everything that went down and the other information i have gained, i believe the gunshot happened in car 11. i was in car 12. but, i was in car 12 near the entrance of 11 and 12. >> you heard gunshots. when did you realize something terrible was unfolding and you needed to take cover. >> as soon as i heard the gunshots, myself and everyone around me ducked under the seats. i ducked under the seat and had the tray table over my head as well. i was doing this and i had my cell phone clutched in my hand under the seat as well. >> you had your cell phone and you were able to take photos of this entire crime unfolding. we have those. you have shared them with us. what is this picture we are seeing? >> so, this photo is a man that, it appeared to me that his
neck -- his neck was profusely bleeding. >> this is the first victim, you believe, that was shot in the neck? >> i believe, yes, he was the first. he was shot in the neck and had come stumbling into the train and he fell to the -- he had a bloody duffel bag that i have a photo of. he first dropped the bloody duffel bag in the seat across from me, essentially. then he collapsed to the floor very close to where i was sitting. >> here is the picture of the duffel bag. you are under your seat, taking cover. >> yes. >> the tray table is down and you see this man fall with blood and the bloody duffel bag. what is going through your head while all that is happening? >> i didn't know what to think. i thought oh my god, he just got shot. he's dead. i thought he, like, the neck, it's a severe area to be shot at. he might be dead right now. i thought am i next? that was my first thought, am i
next? >> you thought somebody was on a rampage? >> yes, right away. >> was the gunman saying anything? >> no, i didn't hear the gunman. what i believe at this point is the shot was fired in car 11 and the man was running away from the assailant into car 12 and dropped the duffel bag close to where i was sitting. that's what i believe, that's how i believe it happened. >> you and fellow passengers are cowerring under your seat. >> i had seen at least two of them. while i was under my seat still and i'm snapping photos. just to go back to that real quick, i was snapping photos, but not just snapping photos, i was on facebook chat with the friend of mine i had been traveling with. >> while it was happening?
>> yeah, i was having a conversation. i said, i messaged him and said oh my god, oh my god, there's a man with a gun. there's gunshots. a man just dropped in the floor in front of me bleeding. i snapped the photo of the duffel bag and the photo of him on the floor. later on, i snapped the third photo of the assailant on the train with his hands behind his back. >> when did you realize people were on the train that were going to save you? >> while i was under there still, i had -- the shots were fired. the man was bleeding. i didn't know what to think. then, actually, while i was under there, i saw a large rifle. at first, i thought, oh my god, is that the gunman? because i didn't know, yet, who he was. i later learned he was one of the three men that saved my life and all of our lives. i believe that was probably what he had taken from maybe what he had taken from the assailant.
i know he had to wrestle him and take the ammunition away. >> did you hear, during the process of this, we know there was some conversation exchanged, did you hear them talking? >> i heard one of them say i'm a paramedic, someone get this man some help. >> you know, he was basically trying to come to this man's rescue. >> the first victim? >> the victim with the bloody neck, the gunshot to the neck. the only victim i saw was the man who got shot in the neck. he was asking passengers in my car to get, like neckties, men's neckties or a woman's scarf to try to make a turn quet to stop the bleeding. >> could you tell there were three americans on your car trying to quell the situation? >> i believe i only saw two of them. i don't think i saw three. so, i -- but i did come out from
under -- a lot of us came out from under our seats when we realized they -- they communicated to us, okay, we have him tied up, ammunition taken away. they did communicate that. we felt safer. i was still scarend and shaken up but i felt safer to come out of hiding. they made us all go to the back of the car, then to the next car, car 13, because they didn't want so many people near this man who was on the floor bleeding. >> what do you think it was that allowed them to run towards danger when everyone else, naturally, your reflex and mine is to hide. >> fight or flight, right? >> yeah. >> i know a couple of them have military background. so, i guess -- i don't have military background myself, but my understanding is, if you have that training, that's probably what you are kind of programmed to do, essentially.
i don't know what it was, but i think there are very, very brave, i owe my life to them. i'm incredibly grateful to those three men. they are fantastic human beings, we are all grateful for what they did for us. >> what do you want to say to them? >> thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. the thoughts running through my mind were, am i going to die? i'm not ready die. that's really how i thought or felt. excuse me, getting little emotional. you know, i feel like i have so much more to do with my life. i'm only 28 years old. i have goals and everybody else on that train does as well. they saved us. you know, they are heroes. if they don't think they are heroes, i mean, they are very humble and i respect that, but they are heroes. they are truly heroes.
my mom wanted to say thank you so much. she's very grateful that they were on that train. >> we are grateful they were on that train. >> hundreds. >> i keep thinking about the fact in those early moments, too, they didn't know if he was alone, if there was another gunman or assailant. all that happening so fast with fluidity. >> they knew he had shot somebody, knew he had the ak-47. they decided to rush him. and others. another person got shot in the neck. a lot of people stepped up. >> invokes memories of flight 93 on 9/11. they knew they were going to take care of it. they were so grateful for people like that. heroes that walk among us. in other news, breaking, in fact a brutal day for global investors. markets in china, taiwan and
hong kong. let's turn to christine romans with the impact it's going to have on wall street. that's what we are waiting for. >> let me show you the world markets first. these are the red arrows around the world. paris down 3%. the spark here with shanghai, shanghai having a horrible day. they are calling it black monday in china. look at futures in the u.s. you are seeing follow through here. s&p 500 futures are going to be down big time. ift's going to be a very ugly day. the dow is in a correction. it's down 10% from the most recent peak. a lot of ferocious selling and names of the year are down. apple, netflix and disney. we are seeing one of the things that is important to watch. oil prices down sharply. this is unsettling because one, energy companies in your 401(k) have been hit and all the
country that is depend on oil for revenue are getting hammered. oil prices are challenging. you are seeing stocks react. we have a couple hours until the opening bell here. it is going to be a very ugly day for stock investors. some perspective. record highs in stocks, remember? a lot of people are telling me, we need to have a correction at some point. it's ugly when it happens. >> when your money is in the market, you don't feel like you need to lose it. we'll keep watching it. thank you very much. a big boost for president obama's iran nuclear deal. harry reid says he strongly supports it and will see everything in his power so it stands. remember, the president needs 34 senators in his corner to this wart an override of his veto. 27 democrats support the deal. schumer and menendez oppose it.
wok to be done. going to the lone star state to talk border security. the gop contender facing backlash about comments about immigration, looking to turn things around to get trump who is in texas off his back. susan is live in d.c. with the latest this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. jeb bush is trying to recapture the tone and substance by making his case at the border today. he is going to be in mcalan, texas. he is going to close his meeting to discuss border security as well as economics. his message is that his plan is in contrast to trump's $500 million plan. that requires big government spending. bush's trip follows the visit to the border to force all illegal immigrants out of the country to babies born in the u.s. to undocuments immigrants.
trump used the offensive term, anchor babies as did bush. this got a lot of criticism last week. bush refused to apologize for it. many hispanics did not think it would have a long lasting impact given his close connections to the latino community. trump kept up his criticism of his opponent closer to his heels. >> we need a person with a lot of smarts, a lot of cunning and a lot of energy. jeb doesn't have that. he's a nice person. if he wins, good luck, it's another bush, the same old story. >> the visit at the border is meant to regain, recapture control over this issue. alisyn? >> thank you for that. an indycar driver is in critical condition after this flying
debris hit justin wilson directly in the head. he lost consciousness sending his car into the wall. he has a severe head injury. the driver in the first car was shaken by what happened. he left the reck with an injured foot. >> so excited about the fast pace racing and such. the danger is definitely real. >> i think it's nerve-racking to watch. back to the top story. what do we know about the men those three american heroes took down? was he just a train robber or was he part of a larger terror network? we'll tell you the latest, next. imagine - she won't have to remember passwords.

rob passengers. let's go to an analyst. first the easier question, do you believe there is a likelihood that this man is what his lawyer presents him to be? >> not in the least. he came into the train with an ak-47, nine magazines, a pistol and box cutter. if you are coming just to rob a train, that is not what you will find. >> not what you find hiding in a park, which is what was suggested. he was on the radar, but not closely enough to monitor his movements. is that deficiency or window to reality? >> window of reality. if you look at the people being monitored over seas, there are thousands of people on the radar of authorities. this is someone who had gone to syria. unless grow to join a jihadist group, it's not against their
law. a problem of potential radicalization, people associated with jihadist movements. it's so broad, you cannot survey them all. >> then you get to the reality of what happened on the train. you are not always going to have these three men. there's a french american citizen in the hospital. other nationalities involved that stepped up. doesn't always happen. trains are vulnerable. there's no security going on and off. should that change or choose convenience over 100% safety? >> it's a great question. you are not going to see train stations in europe move toward airport stale security. the belgium prime minister called for not only urgent discussion about increasing rail security, but a reveal of the zone that throughout europe
provides for passport free travel from one country to another. there's going to be a lot of discussions about can you increase the ability to look at identification documents? you can see if someone is a suspected terrorist and searching people's bags, looking at the attacker here and the ammunition on the train. there's going to be a discussion, isn't this the kind of thing you could have stopped? you are looking at measures, not airport security, but more police presence to interrupt terrorist plots. >> we don't want to do what we do on airplanes, for one simple reason, convenience. europe has 40 million a day on the rails. the u.s. doesn't have as much volume, but similar volume per capita. we don't do it because we don't want to do it, not because we
can't do it or shouldn't do it, right? >> there are other reasons besides convenience. convenience is high on the list and tied in with economics. you need to be able to move people. if you slow down their day, you are taking away man hours from the day. a third thing is cost. if you are to implement tsa style security throughout europe, it would be extraordinarily expensive. that's another reason. it lends itself to a fourth concern,eth ka si. if you are going to do tsa style security, bringing in all these people, do you have enough qualified individuals? right now, when people try to test the tsa system, sneaking bombs across, more often than not, they are able to get them across. tsa is expensive, but it's not clear it's doing its job of preventing. >> as we know, you better than
i, these are the same questions that used to be asked before 9/11, then everything changed with respect to air travel and hopefully we don't have a similar situation on the rails. thank you for understanding who this man is and who he isn't. >> could another billionaire raise a challenge with donald trump? that's what murdock would like to see. we'll let john king explore that inside politics. she'll log in with her smile. he'll have his very own personal assistant. and this guy won't just surf the web. he'll touch it. scribble on it. and share it. because these kids will grow up with windows 10. get started today. windows 10. a more human way to do.

an honor they won't soon forget for three american heroes. french president presenting knights of the legion for bravery for taking down a gunman on a high speed train. that gunman is linked to isis fighters in turkey. he and his lawyer claim he was on the train to rob passengers because he was hungry. investigatoors are trying t figure out what caused an explosion. it contained nitrogen, oxygen
and freon. it took hours for firefighters to put out these flames. no injuries reported. a louisiana state trooper is fighting for his life this morning. he is trying to talk a dui driver out of a crashed truck when they shot him in the head. another driver saw what was happening, got the weapon away from the gunman and slapped the troopers handcuffs on him. he is in critical condition with severe, neurological damage. >> we wish him well in his recovery. >> boston police -- 18-year-old kevin norton, and a 27-year-old made violent threats on a facebook group. they tried to get into the venue to kill fellow contestants, but were taken into custody after weapons and ammunition, a lot of it, as you can see there was
found inside their vehicle. a head scratcher. none of it makes sense. >> my 9-year-old does pokeman. >> scary. let's get to inside politics with john king. so much to talk about, john. will he or won't he? >> we have to ask the president who gets to have lunch with that guy today. good morning. let's go inside politics. a very busy monday. to share with me, sara and olivia. the president is back at work and the vice president is back from work after a break. they are going to sit down for lunch today. mr. president how was the last round of golf or so mr. vice president tell me about the elizabeth warren meeting? >> the meeting with very interesting. she is not in the race, by driving the conversation, which is what a lot of people want outside of hillary.
someone who can speak to the far left. so far, bernie sanders has done that. there aren't many people that think he could be a threat in the long term. joe biden is a different story. >> he's talking to long term advisers, making phone calls. when you come back from delaware, you invite elizabeth warren to come to the vice president's residence, do it on a saturday, you know it is going to get out. i talked to people that say he did it, took it to the next level because he's more comfortable with running. he's not there yet. what does that mean? more comfortable with the idea of running. he's kissing the ring here, paying attention to e lizwet warren. >> in a way you are. you are trying to make sure if you announce for president, you have a rational behind you. you are not younger than hillary. you wouldn't be making more history than hillary. you don't necessarily have a better relationship with the
base of the party than hillary. if you have elizabeth warren on your side, you have the two-term vice president who achieved a lot in his time in office and this much better connection to the base of the party. >> biden/warren. does the president like this idea or not like this idea? this is unusual in the sense dick cheney didn't run. we knew he was not going to be a candidate for president. we didn't think joe biden was going to be. it's so unusual. usually, you pick a vice president, he gears up. al gore tried and failed. what does the president think here? does this help him? does he think it's not a good thing? let's be honest, he's kind of sort of said hillary clinton put his eggs in a clinton basket. >> a lot of people in the white house put their eggs in a clinton basket. it's a very awkward position.
it's because joe biden didn't know indication he was considering it until recently. the reality is, the obama administration agenda is going to be on the table no matter what, no matter if it's hillary clinton or joe biden. he has to choose between friends. >> the white house is working closely with the hillary campaign. john is there frequently. this would put the president in an awkward spot. >> would love to be at that lunch. >> rupert murdock told us he was at the great barrier reef on vacation. this is what you do when you are on a low budget vacation. with trump being a candidate, it's time for bloomberg to step into it. he later tweeted, i didn't say i would vote for him, just a friend i admire. just playful mischief or up to
something? >> totally playful mischief. he hasn't shown appetite for this, for 2016. i think this is, let's see if i can do something dpr from the great barrier reef. >> see if i can make bloomberg's monday more interesting? >> we are not on the same page of this, that's what we need, more candidates. he's happy moving back to the company, taking the reigns there. murdock felt like doing a little tweeting. >> we'll see how this plays out. donald trump on the sunday shows this past weekend. he has dominated the republican race. he is stirring the agenda and dominated in a way that has many unhappy and uneasy. george stephanopoulos trying to get him to stay he is going to build a wall and round them up. how are you going to pay for it?
>> you don't say how you are going to do it. >> excuse me, george? >> you declare you are going to do it, but don't say how? >> i'm telling you, growth management. i'm going to get great people that know what they are doing. >> again, in a normal campaign, that would not fly. for donald trump, it seems to work. don't ask me what it is going to cost in the budget or ask where i'm going to get the money. i'm going to get good people and get rid of the stupid people. people say i like what donald trump is saying, they like his rhetoric on immigration and he's blunt. there's a certain amount of trust. they say he's a businessman, el rich and done things before. he would figure it out. it defies the rules of politics. the things he's said would be gaffes for other candidates. not for trump. >> romney was criticized for
changing issues. trump, never mind. he has the republicans talking about should we build a wall and could you get mexico to pay for it? can we round people out and send them out? the conversation about the 14th amendment and anchor babes. if someone comes into the united states and has a baby, should that baby be a citizen of the united states. if necessary, he would try to change the constitution. ask scott walker this question and it depends on which day of the week you ask him. >> do you think birthright citizenship should be ended? >> we should end it? >> yeah, to me it's about enforcing the laws. >> people understand you are not for ending it? >> i'm not taking a position on it one way or the other? >> you are not seeking to appeal the 14th amendment? >> no. my point is any discussion that goes beyond the border or
enforcing the laws should be a red flag. they have heard lip service from politicians and are angry. >> monday, yes, i think so, absolutely. friday, i'm not taking a position one way or the other. sunday, no. and the walker campaign says he's being absolutely consistent on this. clearly consistent. sorry, my apologies, governor. i know he's not. >> what are they going to say, no idea? we are winging this one? they can't say that. >> he's a hero for his governship. the donor community here, many don't matter. trump's campaign, what people think doesn't matter anymore. >> donors do matter. he needs their money. if you are on the edge and they say i will give you money and see where it goes and you are worried he is not ready for prime time, it doesn't make you
feel better thchlt is a big mistake if you stand-up for conservative principles. to change your policy this many times doesn't project that. >> it's a new week, maybe he can clear it up as we go forward. the immigration debate shall continue. >> you know what else it is, john? it's a new day. >> it is a new day. >> thanks so much. see you tomorrow. the abortion issue is more complicated in ohio. they will vote on a bill to ban abortion if they have down syndrome. might parents or doctors have to go to prison? we'll have the bill's co-sponsor next. hey pal? you ready?

representative becker, thanks so much for being on "new day." explain to us how this bill works. if a mother were to terminate a pregnancy once she learned the child had down syndrome would she face joul time or the doctor face jail time in. >> thanks for having me on alisyn, good morning. this bill is not aimed at the mothers at all. it is aimed at the doctors and doesn't prevent or in essence outlaw abortions or down syndrome people. it's rather the intention, the sole intention is because the fetus is diagnosed with down syndrome. >> this is such an agonizing and personal decision for parents. why is it the state's responsibility to make this decision for parents? >> well, alisyn, it's a matter of the state's responsibility to
protect lives. we are talking about innocent human beings. that's kind of really the pro-life movement in a whole is all about. >> have you talked to parents who have had to make this decision? >> well, no. but, let me tell you about some down syndrome people that i have met or their parents. they are quick stories. the first one, i was a teenager at church. there was a kid, this was a catholic church giving the sign of peace during the ceremony. he would go up and down the main aisle ten rows deep and shake hands with the person at the end of each pew. this was a cute kid, everybody loved him, he was great. the second one, i want to tell you about an individual named teddy kramer. people can google him, teddy
kraemer, cincinnati reds bat boy. i used to work with him. great guy, inspiring story. the third story is i was going door-to-door campaigning for this position. i met a dad who was in the driveway with his daughter who has down syndrome. looking at the love between the two and the big smile on this little girl's face is precious. these are real people that need protection. >> we have all met children with down syndrome. as i'm sure you know, there's a spectrum. there are mild cases and those children bring a lot of joy to their parents and there are more severe cases. in those severe cases, sometimes they have to be institutionalized. rarely are they able to go to college or graduate from college. a fraction of them, only a fraction of them end up working at a paying job. so, is it your suggestion that if parents feel ill equipped to have a child with special needs that the state would take care
of them? those children could be institutionalized and the state would pick up the tab? >> well, alison, for parents who are not equipped, a lot of parents aren't. i get that. there are a lot of people that are equipped and want to adopt these special needs children. there are options out there. the idea is, just because somebody is handicap, we don't want to put them to death. a pro-life movement means pro-life for all innocent, human life. >> what the pro-choice says is it is a deeply personal decision of parents and the state is getting in the way of that personal decision. i mean, representative, where does it stop? what else can the state tell you about how many children you should have or what other personal decisions are you comfortable with the state making for you? >> alisyn, again thrks is a matter of a life and death
decision. sure, tough. it gets into the hard cases. we are making a law based on hard cases. it makes for bad law. carving out exceptions, it's not unusual when a baby is diagnosed with down syndrome, the diagnosis is wrong. that occurs 20% of the time. you have a perfectly healthy baby that is being aborted. >> i'm not sure about the statistics because, perhaps at first there may be a misdiagnosis, but not later in the pregnancy when there could be other ultrasounds. it's nice to think they would be adopted, but history doesn't prove they are always adopted. many are institutionalized at great cost. it costs 12 to 13 times more to raise a child with down syndrome than other children. this is according to the cdc. so, if that child is not
adopted, who will pick up those costs? >> well, there is always cost incured for any person with handicaps. we work with the schools on that. they have their special needs kids and the cost to educate a special needs kid is dramatically higher than a typical kid. this is another example where, yeah, certain people in our society do cost more. just because, you know, somebody has a disability doesn't mean they should be discriminated against in the woman. >> congressman, thanks so much for coming on and explaining the bill for us. we'll follow it. >> thank you for having me, alisyn. >> what's your take on this story? tweet us #newdaycnn or facebook.com/newday or my twitter. i look forward to reading your feedback. michaela? >> all right. not one but two panda cubs born at the national zoo.

inside the nursery where the giant twin pandas were born over the weekend. we're watching on mom there looking at mom snuggling with her cubs. for the first time the national zoo is home to five giant pan pandas. joining me now is someone that worked closely with the pandas. dr. brandy smith at the smithsonian national zoo. great to have you here. tell us about the condition of the cubs right now >>well, thank you for having me. it's great to be here. the cubs are doing pretty well. these early days everything still touch and go. we're watching them closely but we're hopeful now. >> what is the biggest concern, you say touch and go? >> well, you know, they are so fragile. they're so tiny and so fragile, and we're just the first few day of life there could be things that were wrong with them.
they could have problems with them or challenges with mom taking care of them. so almost anything could go wrong in these first few days. >> that's the balance, right? you wanting to make sure they get the best care they can, keeping an eye on them, but let the mother do her job of mothering. >> because they're twins she has a hard time taking care of two at one time. we're helping her out and swapping cubs. she gets to focus on one cub and we focus on the other. >> that's fantastic. we understand mom was artificially inseminated by two males. that will create diversity in the species genes, i suppose. >> it is. it's exciting. not only to find out who the father is going to be. there's a potential that each of the cubs could have a different father. >> that's interesting.
talk to us what happens to the cubs once they get a little bit bigger. indian they go ba-- i understany go back to china? >> they will. the reason we have panda cubs is to keep making more panda cubs. when our cubs grow up and are ready to breed we send them back to china to find mates of their own. >> it takes a long time. we want to make sure that the cubs are being cared for. when do you think the general public will get to have their first view of the little ones? >> so, probably in a few months, probably around christmas or the first of the year if everything goes well. right now the panda house is closed. we're keeping everything quiet and the best environment for the mother to take care of them. if anybody wants to get a behind the scenes look #pandastory. >> any names in the works for them yet? >> no, and so we just want to get -- we're not thinking about that now.
we just want to -- the first week is the most crucial so i'm not thinking beyond a week right now. >> i understand that. talk to us about the overall state of the endangered giant panda population right now. this is good news if twins are coming into the program. >> they are. you know, these species are endangered. so every single panda makes a difference in the world. the fact we have the two pandas it's important to the entire global population, and hopefully they'll grow up happy and healthy and they'll go on to breed and make more pandas. hopefully their off sping will eventually be in the wild someday. >> you can see mom working on her job which is mothering. we know bao bao the second surviving cub had her second birthday over the weekend! the day after her new siblings came on scene. i'm sure she's upset they're stealing her thunder.
i see she had a nice fruitcake there. >> she enjoyed the candidate. she was sleeping on top of her cake all day long. bao bao doesn't know there's anyone in the world besides bao bao. she's enjoying it and not even concerned with the cub right now. >> i respect that. my birthday is coming up. i might do the same thing. thank you so much, dr. brandy smith. thank you for the update on the cubs and wish you well in their care. i think we should probably jump to the news in a second. how about that? >> it's panda day. >> the best panda names and we don't know who the father is yet? why isn't jerry springer here today? >> we picked a bad day for jerry to come. >> using the hashtag and let's start off with panda names. >> you think they'll be able to influence the national -- >> sure! >> why not?
>> the rest of my day is buried in pointless suggestions. >> you know what it will be? panda -- pandemonium. the taking of the baby from the mom -- why don't they let the bear take care of her own? >> that's two. >> she had two. >> as a mother of twins, it's hard sometimes to juggle both of them. >> yeah. >> i can relate. >> what do you think? a lot of news, let's get to it. they are truly heros. >> just kept pulling more weapons left and right. >> the guy had a lot of ammo. his intentions were clear. joe biden held a private meeting with senator elizabeth warren. could it be a biden warren ticket in the making?
>> elizabeth warren has her thumb. >> i can't imagine the clinton camp will be happy of this. a day of fun turned to tragedy. >> stay in your places, please. >> this is new day with chris cuomo, allis -- welcome to "new" 8:00 in the east. breaking overnight three childhood pals celebrated worldwide. spencer stone, anthony sadler, alex skarlatos awarded a medal after preventing a emotional massacre on a high-speed train. they took down the gunman being linked to isis. >> the suspect said he's dumbfounded by allegations he's linked to terrorists. he claimed he was on the train to rob passengers because he was hungry. breaking news coverage begins with cnn nick robertson.
give us the latest from paris, nick. >> reporter: hi, good morning. the three young american heros the french president said they should be an inspiration for all of us. they diverted a possible major catastrophe. there were more than 500 people and more than 300 bullets. the men came to the presidential palace here. they were let in. spencer stone's arm still in a sling. >> reporter: this morning three young americans arriving to a red carpet ceremony in paris. the french president presenting them with a country's highest award for bravery, the legion of honor. the honor came after this incredible scene was viewed around the world. a gunman hog tied on the floor of a passenger train. the close friends say they acted on instinct. >> it was do something or die.
>> it wasn't a conscious decision. we just acted. >> 23-year-old spencer stone lead the charge. >> i saw he had what looked to be an ak 47. it looked like it was jammed or wasn't workiwork, he was trying charge the weapon. >> he and his two friends anthony sadler and national guard member alex sckarlatos prevented what could have been a bloody massacre. >> when i heard they were moving, it gave me the impetus to get up and galvanize me as well. >> ran down, tackled him, hit the ground. grabbed the gun out of his hand and put him in a choke hold. >> the suspect is identified as a more more rock con national. he boarded the train with
ammunition and a box cutter he used to slash stone several times. >> i think he's not dead because he took immediate action to take action to protect himself and everyone else there. plus, there being an angel in the room. >> stone'sbelieving it was destiny. the three men moving from coach to first class for better wi-fi. >> reporter: according to a senior counter terrorism official he's linked to radical islamic networks across europe including a french isis cell in turkey. his lawyer said he denies he's a terrorist. instead he robbed passengers on the train with weapons he found in a park. one passenger was shot in the melee. stone rushed to help another who was wounded in the neck. >> i stuck two of my fingers in what i thought to be the artery, pushed down and the bleeding
stopped. >> reporter: over the weekend president obama called the men personally commending them for their courage and quick action. >> reporter: the french president said there will be an investigation into a security and the french transport network, but he said whatever authorities do, there is always a responsibility left with the individuals left with people to try to do something. and he quoted anthony sadler saying that when presented with a crisis, that you have to do something. a very high honor, indeed, for the three young american heros. >> if only we were all so capable as these three heros. nick, thank you so much. a new york social worker witnessed the horrifying attack. we spoke with christina kunz about what happened on board that train.account. >> you are taking cover, the train table is down. you see this man fall with blood and you see that bloody duffel bag. what is going through your head
as that's happening? >> i didn't know what to think. i thought, oh, my god this man got shot. he's dead. i thought he, you know, i'm like the neck that's a severe area to be shot at and he thought i might be dead. am i next? that's my first thought. am i next? >> when did you realize there were people on the train who were going to try to save you? >> the shots were fired, the man was bleeding. i didn't know what to think, and then i saw a large rifle. at first, i thought oh, my god is that the gunman because i didn't know yet who he was. and i later learned he was one of the three men that saved my life and all of our lives. >> we know were there some conversation exchange within the three americans. did you hear them talking? >> i heard one of them say "i'm a paramedic someone get this man some help." he was trying to come to the man's rescue and he was asking
passengers in my car to get, like, neckties like men's neckties or a women's scarf to make a tourniquet around the neck. >> they communicated we have the man tied up. his ammunition was taken away. they did communicate that. so we felt a bit safer -- i was still scared and shaken up but i felt a bit safer to come out of hiding. i did that, and they made us go to the back of the car and then eventually made us go to the next car, car 13, because they didn't want so many people near the man who was on the floor bleeding. >> what do you want to say to them? >> thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. i don't feel like i'm, you know, the thoughts that were running through my mind were, you know, am i going to die? i'm not ready to die. that's how i thought and felt and -- excuse me, i'm getting a little emotional. and, you know, i feel like i have so much more to do with my
life. i'm only 28 years old, and i have goals and everybody et. cetera on th-- else does as wel. they saved us. they are heros. if they don't think they're heros, then, i mean, they're very humble and i respect that. but they are heros. they're truly heros. my mom wanted to say thank you so much. she's very grateful that they were on that train. >> joining us now is state department spokesman john kirby. good to have you with us, sir. when we look at the situation, let's put aside the question for now whether or not the man was looking to rob or what the much more obvious suggestion she's there to terrorize. lone wolves? >> we don't want to get ahead of the investigation, but you're right, chris. it races the specter of self-radicalized loan wolves, as you put it. whether they're motivated by isil or some other terrorist
group. whatever their ideology is. this is a concern and has been a concern since we saw the rise of isil last summer. we have more than 30 countries inside the 60 plus country coalition that are taking legal and administrative steps to try to deal with exactly this kind of problem. >> what is the chance that the violence in korea escalates between the north and south. >> it's difficult to predict. we don't have a lot of insight into the north's intentions and thinking and their actions. it was encouraging to see the two sides talk over the weekend. nobody wants to see this come to blows on the korean peninsula. we have almost 30,000 troops there and they're ready but that's not the outcome that anybody wants to see. tensions are high. we continue to watch this closely and obviously hope things can deescalate.
>> how comfortable are you there's no better deal than the iran deal on the table? >> well, it looks like kerry talked about this at length. the deal was negotiated over the course of two two and a half years and it wasn't just the united states and iran, it was, you know, five other countries with us. and so the international committee includes to the e.u. and the international communities behind the deal there's no other alternatives out there. certainly none that anybody put forward. what is important to remember the deal brought iron to the table. this deal will take away their ability to possess a nuclear weapons capability. >> answer the criticisms. the criticisms are, one, you turned it into a situation that is no longer if but when they get it. you have given them $150 billion when you could have held off. you're not squeezing the sanctions anymore that you could have continued ed tto do, and didn't give back the american
prisoners before starting any notions. >> that's a lot. we'll take them one by one. we wanted to separate the condition of the americans being detained with iran. they need to be home with their families. linking them to the deal might have made is the situation worst. we never missed an opportunity to talk to iranian leaders about that. you mentioned $150 billion. i know, the numbers fluctuate here, but, look sanctions relief is what brought iran to the table. the u.n. sanctions in place were there for one reason only. to deal with their nuclear weapons capability and to try to bring them to the table. there was going to be a measure of sanctions relief. u.s. sanctions are not going to be removed on iran for the knee their use conditions. we have other economic and military options at our disposal if they continue to support terrorism in the region, and to conduct destabilizing activities. nobody will take our eye off that. and i can't remember you had a couple more. >> i know you remember, john but you're ducking.
you've answered enough. we'll follow on the conversation as we see where the votes go. we don't want to preargue something. can you say that the state department approved of the use of clinton's private e-mail server the way it was conducted from start to finish? >> well, look, as you know, chris, this issue is under a series of reviews and investigations. i'm not at liberty to comment too specifically about past use of the e-mail server. what i can tell you is we at the state department are committed to making the e-mails, there's 30,000 more to make them public. we're going to do it carefully through the freedom of information act and the process. but secretary kerry is committed to do it as expeditiously as possible. >> understood, but it is your department and it is your policy and it would be within your purview to say whether or not her practice met your policy. can you? >> well, we have said in the past, chris, there was no policy
prohibiting the use of a private e-mail account here at the state department. that is still a fact. now we obviously have policies in place now that highly discourage that and you're supposed to yut the government account so there's a constant permanent record of it. at the time she was not violating policy. >> even though there was a change in 2009 and that would have overlapped? >> as i said when she was secretary of state there was no prohibition to her use of a private e-mail. >> that's the position of the state department. obviously whatever else comes from the investigation you'll have to watch. it's a question that gets overlooked here. can you ever have a problem with what she was doing and did you say did you go to the secretary and say it? >> i'm not aware of what str individual conversations might have occurred. i wasn't here. there was no prohibition for her use of this. we since changed the policy to discourage that greatly. in fact, the policy is you have to use the government account for business.
>> is it a fair point that the policy was changed while she was secretary of state and whether or not she met with the changes of policy? >> i tonight believe the policy changed while she was secretary, chris. i would have to look at that. certainly as i said, at the time when she was secretary of state, she was not violating any policy or regulation. >> john kirby, thank you very much for taking on the issues of the day. we look forward to having you back. >> my pleasure. the u.s. market is bracing for a drop this morning after asian markets took a huge hit overnight. china's losses stirring up all sorts of economic worries across the globe. christine romans is now here with us this morning looking at this. >> it's getting worse by the minute, you guys. i hate to tell you. this is what world markets look like. getting worse. look at london, paris, frankfurt a problem there, shanghai start this all at 8.5% decline for the day. it's down 5% over the last month. let me show you futures.
this is an ugly picture. just look at that for a second. it's telling you if things hold it's going to be worse today than on friday. this is a big decline for any market, certainly a big decline for today. friday, you saw the dow down 530 points, nothing good to say about the stock market action on friday and the selling has continued all the way over the weekend. a couple of problems here, you have china and the growth is slowing. china, of course, is the factor to the world. all the countries that supply raw materials to china are in trouble because china doesn't need as much of their stuff. you have the commodities declining and the oil price decline below $40 a barrel for the first time since 2009. it's going to be great for drivers. it's going to be great as you fill up the car this fall. not so great for anybody who relies on stable energy prices for their business. we are about an hour and 15 to the opening bell. i have to show you the futures one more time, guys.
645 points lower is what it looks like the dow could open this morning. >> oh, boy. thank you so much for keeping an eye on that for us as we know you will throughout the day. destruction in the aplmra. blowing up one of the most important historic sites. it marks the first time isis terrorists have destroyed roman ruins since seizing palmra. investigators are morning are digging for clues what caused a pair of deadly air show crashes in europe over the weekend. the death toll climbing in england after a vintage jet nose dived on a busy highway. and horror as two planes collide midair in switzerland. we are live with new video of the deadliest crash.
ian? >> reporter: michaela behind we're watching as the crane is pulling off the wreckage from the highway. we're seeing chunks of the airplane being put on a flat bed trailer. this is the moment which authorities said they are likely to find more bodies. right now at least 11 people, they say, are likely to be dead. the number is expected to rise as they clear the scene and pull that wreckage out. this is a town really in shock. a small community. this air show was really the height of their summer. we're seeing the deadly tragedy. also, police hearing from other family members who say they still have people missing. that is something that they're going to be double checking when finding out the final death toll here. but we're also getting new footage of this crash from a dash cam on a car. you can see it coming down and hitting blowing up and no surprise at the large death toll
because the huge explosion. also, in switzerland we did have another air incident where two planes collided. one pilot was killed and another one, though, was lucky enough to bail out of the plane and parachute to the ground. it's been a deadly weekend for air shows. chris? >> thank you very much, ian. in politics there's lots of speculation this morning that joe biden is one step closer to white house run. cnn was first to report that joe biden held a private meeting with senator elizabeth warren on saturday. the big question why? cnn white house correspondent joins us with more. the tantalizing aspect. a ticket or is it just to meet with someone who represents the progressive part of the party? >> reporter: that's a million dollar question. is it the writing or wall or what will be the big sign that joe biden is indeed challenging hillary clinton and running for president. could it be that this morning his office announced he has a
new communications director with big time campaign experience. jon edwards for president, or it could it be the meeting on saturday with senator elizabeth warren? the hero of many liberal democrats and progressives. he flew in for the meeting. it lasted about two hours, and he flew right back home. some are seeing that alone as a signal that he's leaning toward a run. sources tell cnn he wanted to get her thoughts on that possibility. that he wanted to talk about his stance on certain issues such as the economy but he's still thinking about. here is what the super pac supporting biden said. while the vice president thoughtfully considers his potential candidacy, draft biden 2016 assembled a who is who of staff talent focussing on death to media strategy, aggressive fundraising, innovative digital outreach. what all watchers seem to agree
on he has to make this decision whatever it will be within about a month. allison? >> okay. everyone on tender hooks waiting to see that decision. an apology from espn for comments he made. captured on video giving the controversial advice to a group of first-year players. >> just in case you are knocked on the side if y'all got approved you have to have fall guy. carter now tweeting, quote, seeing that video has made me realize how wrong i was. i was brought there to educate young people and instead i gave them bad advice. every person should take responsibility for his actions. i'm sorry and i truly regret what i said that day. >> is he sorry? >> i'm sure he's sorry once it blew up.
>> that he got caught. >> what do you think? making a joke? got taken a wrong way? >> it sounds like he was joking around and trying to relate to the guys and what have you. but i think he was trying to share some insight. i don't know. i don't know. i feel twisted up about it. it's not the kind of advice you need to be giving anybody. >> even if he's joking it's something that happens too often with the younger guys, especially -- >> you need to support them not send them astray. >> that's too bad. i like cris carter. will he or won't he? please tweet allison. do you think joe biden will make a run for the white house? if so, what does mean for hillary clinton? who wins, in your opinion? tweet allison!

political commentator. a democratic strategies and pro hillary clinton super pac and cnn political analyst john avalon. great to have you here. paul, i want to start with you. >> good morning. >> you've known the vice president for a long time. do you think that he's going to get into the race? >> the truth is i don't know. i think this is one of the classic cases where those who know aren't talking, and those who are talking don't know. i don't know. i have known him for a long time. he's a beloved figure across the democratic party. president obama will tell you this, the best decision he made is putting joe biden one heart beat away from the presidency. obviously for hilary i help run the super pac that supports him. i think we should give him the time and space to make his decision rather than stampeding him. >> is he a stronger candidate than hillary in light of this one number? put up the poll number about her trust worthiness and how it's
continuing to haunt her now. i don't know what the number means. >> this is the one in florida i want to get to in a second. first, you can look -- >> that's what i said. okay. if clinton is not honest and trust worthy 60 at least in three big fat states. do you see this as a blip or do you see this as a reason that biden may be the party's best bet? >> well, i can't imagine that vice president joe biden would make a decision based on one number in one poll. the only person who has numbers on that factor as bad is trump and he's leading in his party. >> is trump proof he feels vulnerable? >> i want trump to keep running. i'm going to send him vitamins. he's going to think about what is best for his family and country. the and the third tier is the pragmat pragmatics. it's an idealistic guy for
somebody who has been in politics all his life. i think he'll do it the right way. >> but the third criteria is toughest for biden. i think paul can probably agree with that. the democrats need to confront they have a depth in the bench problem. when joe biden is your alternative to hilary, he's the only guy older than hillary clinton. i'm not saying that an arp membership is a problem. but partly what is driving the biden bandwagon now is simply just a desire for a better more vibrant race in the democratic party. you have bernie surging but it's not offering a credible alternative as a nominee. may win a couple of primaries but not necessarily change the outcome. the question for bide isn't best day the first day i get in? that's a of tougher calculus. >> let's play about what donald
trump said he would prefer to run against joe biden or hillary clinton. listen to him this weekend. >> i think they're the same. i think that hillary may be damaged, however, because of her e-mail. but i don't know. she could get over that. i don't know how she possibly can, but if she could i would say they're pretty equal. >> paul, are you willing to concede that she is damaged by the e-mail controversy? >> no. it's a very long way before the election. this is going to be -- it's going to be long forgotten. >> everything in texas is forgotten. >> i'm moving my son in today at the university. >> congratulations! >> yeah. but mr. trump is going to have his own problems, believe me. i don't want him to have problems. i want him to win the republican primary. hillary has to deal with it and she's dealing with it. i think it's going to be long
forgotten. some sweet day voters will engage. they're not going to. they're going to ask questions like who is going to get the economy moving again? they'll turn to hillary. >> they have to trust the answers. that's why it matters. we had kirby on. i had five ways to get him to say the state department had practices not because i want to indict him. he said we changed the policy and didn't affect to her. i don't want to mess with the investigation. it's not so much that hillary is going to get indicted. i don't know the gop is running that and it sounds scary, but it's about whether or not she is trusted on what she says. that's something that can be a little bit difficult to deal with. >> biden's decision time line does corp. correspondent to a weakness in hillary clinton's numbers not just the owners and trust worthy but questions and clouds pumped up by gop candidates who love to have her
not be on the ballot. the time line coincidence is a problem. it's going to be tempting for biden to get in. you have to play the game out. we'll say the constitution doesn't permit a vice president from serving more than two terms. >> oh. planting a seed. >> go ahead. >> hillary is favorable is above 70 among democrats. it's above 70. this is not a rejection of hillary. we love joe biden. all democrats do. by the way, the bernie sanders is not a rejection of hillary. her numbers are terrific. it's not a rejection of her. as john said earlier they want a race and contest. i think it's good. hillary ran against joe biden in 2008 and barack obama. it didn't destroy the democratic party. it helped us win the next two presidential elections. it would not be the end of the day to have even more candidates in the running. i want a tough contest. admiral kirby did not dodge your question. he said hillary did not violate
policy at the state department. >> i didn't say he dodged it. i wanted to get deeper into what the policies were and he was reluctant to do that because the ongoing investigation. don't put words in my mouth! >> he cleared her. he cleared her. >> all right. >> she didn't violate any policies is what he said. >> that's what he said. >> okay. john, paul, thank you. >> the texas parents you have to be careful. mark your calendar, everybody. the next presidential debate is less than three weeks away. if you can believe it! cnn will moderate the second gop debate wednesday, september 16th. it is live from the reagan library in california. we will be there! mark it down. a gunman's plan to target a high-speed train in france foils. questions being raised about what can be done to improve safety on the rails. we'll ask the questions to a counter terrorism expert to get his take next. rition is critical for brain health?

in a choke hold. it seemed like he kept calling more weapons left and right. pulled out a handgun. al took that. took out a box cutter and started jabbing at me with that. we let go. all three of us started punching him while he's in the middle of us. and i was able to grab him again and choke him unconscious. >> spencer stone despite having his thumb nearly severed by this man with a big gun, two guns and a box cutter, he wound up with his two friends, these band of american brothers to subdue this asill i can't on the train on the way to paris. another french-american teacher was involved. another britain national who helped out. we can't count on that every time, can we? what does it mean about safety? cnn counter terrorism analyst your smile i know speaks a
complete condemnation of the suggestion i'm about to make. 2004 spain bombing 191 killed, 2005 london bombing 56 killed, 2006 mumbai bombing 209 killed. all of them on trains. here in the u.s., as we know, even after 9/11 all too easy to get on a train. if you want to do bad things. you say doesn't mean we change policy because? >> that's too simple, chris. i say nonsense. so you to look at the counter terrorism world not from our perspective but from the eyes of the adversary. they go after icon targets. things like the entertainment industry, things like nightclubs. we see them go after schools. major threats or attacks against buildings in new york, chicago, west coast. transcription things like subways and trains. so step back and by the way the past month or two we've seen military recruiting stations. we've seen the parliament in ottawa, attacks against police. do you want to secure every one
of those by checking those who approached with the backpack. remember the underwater bomb ea. before we have a conversation about trains, you've got to look at the world through the eyes of the adversary and look at targets in the aggravate. i'm going to say securing the targets it's not possible. but do trains get a little bit higher of a value than you're placing on them given the numbers i read to you? >> not really. if i'm looking at 15 years in the entirety, i look at attacks against things like nightclubs in bali. those are cultural symbols of the west cultural symbols of western culture. i look not only at trains i look at subways. you're talking about the long island railroad. you want to check that during rush hour morning and evening? i don't think so. you're looking at trains up-and-down manhattan. the bart in san francisco, looking at the metro in washington. i agree there are some sort of themes to what terrorists look
at, but if you look at the volume that we're talking about in terms of not just spot checking backpacks but securing every single train, securing those locations. if you look at london years ago or during the height of the ira bombings, you have to remove trash cans because terrorists will start to place bombs in trash cans and explode five minutes later. i don't think we're thinking about this 48 or 72 hours after the french attacks with enough perspective. >> okay. understood. thank you for that perspective on that. let me ask you about something else that has been kind of inching at you a little bit which is that you believe there's talk in the hillary e-mail scandal about classified information as being misunderstood. what is your take? >> i think the public conversation is oversimplifying this. not because it's misguided or not because it's not important. the people looking at this don't have an understanding of classification. we're not talking about hillary
clinton, i would say assume, taking an intercepted north korean. what i'm saying an intelligence professional reviewing the e-mails is going to have a struggle determining what is classified and what is not. what if she says these iran negotiations they're tough. i can't go on vacation right now because it's pretty important that i stay here. is that classified? is that revealing something sensitive about the nature of the negotiations? i guarantee my friends and at intelligence agencies don't have an easy time to tell the congress and everybody else in the campaign process who is interested in this what is classified and what's not. they're going to disagree about that. >> so what does it mean? terms of what they'll be able to yield in terms of investigation? >> i'm going to offer you a suggestion, chris, when the reports come out from washington about the review of those e-mails from the intelligence community, here is your first question. was there unanimity across the
community, a., on what was classified and what wasn't? and b., on the number of e-mails that merited consideration for review by the intelligence community. people are going to take the initial review, i bet, and run with it and suggest whatever it says at the intelligence community came out with a hard and fast judgment about whether there is classified information on the server. i would bet you there's people in the rooms in washington who would not share that view. they're fighting today saying not because they're political just because it's vague about whether what she said is classified or not. it's not going to be simple. >> they've been forced into a political position and that's going to comprise -- >> that's right. it's going to comprise -- it's not security question. it's a political question. this is not security. >> philip mud, appreciate it as always. thank you, sir. >> thank you. dr. dre saying he's sorry from the people he hurt. is it sincere? is there a motive behind it? we'll take look at it all.

outta compton. controversy emerged around the film amid suggestions that the film glossed over allegations of violates against women by dr. dre. he issued an apology over the weekend. i think we have to read the statement from dre off the bat. if you'll indulge me. it 25 years i was a young man drinking too much. none of this is an excuse for what i did. i've been married 19 years and every day i'm working to be a better man for my family. i apologize to the women i hurt. i deeply regret what i did and know it forever impacted all of our lives. resonate with you enough? >> not impressed. >> why? >> i think it's a missed opportunity. >> explain. >> say their names. >> do we have an indication he apologized correctly to him? >> that statement doesn't suggest that. that's first. be clear. say their names. say what you did, say what
happened and why the new york times? >> he could have picked a different -- >> he could have picked world star. you know, where his audience is. he could have made an impact. so i felt that he was very removed from that. he was very removed from the people that he could have impacted. so -- >> meaning he could have made an impact on the community and sort of could have been an instructive moment for young black men. >> completely. it was a difficult. right. if you really going were going to make ape mends say their names, go where the people are you can impact this. between he and apple, billions of dollars if you want to be hard, if you want to be gangster, why not hip-hop against violence against women? do something substantiative to great a legacy instead of the one off brush off. i thought this was reactionary.

through the years. dre addressed it. taking a different tone. take us back a little bit. you were there in the day. you were at one of the parties when dee barnes was allegedly hit and the whole situation that happened with her. what was the vibe? >> the vibe i was the fashion director at vibe magazine at the time. we were the rolling stone of hip-hop. we were the cultural magazine of note. this act was so significant. it really was that moment when men and women split. men and women colleagues, journalists, the women were speaking out about it. joan morgan, lisa jones, me, and no other men were really talking about it. and i believe this was the moment when even the term hip-hop feminism that joan morgan coined began. hip-hop has been a dangerous environment for women. but this was real. >> in a word, you think this is done? >> no. >> you think we're going to hear
more about it? >> i think apple and dre should do something substantiative. >> maybe they'll hear that call. >> mikala angela davis. thank you so much. >> chris, over to you. it's monday. let's get the week started right! how about a little "good stuff"? we'll be right back. shopping online... ...is as easy as it gets. wouldn't it be great if hiring plumbers, carpenters and even piano tuners... were just as simple? thanks to angie's list, now it is. start shopping online... ...from a list of top rated providers. visit angieslist.com today.
