i have to say, what's scary about this whole thing, once you get over and look at this nightclub it only has a single entrance and exit. it's squeezed between two buildings. no lateral exits. no exit out of the back. it's a narrow door. when you have 1,000, 2,000 packed into this space at night, the lights are on and off, in some ways this was a tragedy announced you wonder how anyone could have gotten these people out. >> a sea of chaos must have been unimaginable. one of the most disturbing things that we're hearing that security guards may have been blocking people, why might this be? >> well, we have seen a lot, especially on social media, facebook, people commenting at the very beginning when the fire started the security guards
didn't know what was going on. they were outside. again, just this one door. maybe a fight over the drinks. someone didn't want to pay their bill and wanted to squeezed out. it hasn't been confirmed. we haven't heard to talk to any investigators who will confirm this. we'll be talking to more survivors today about what they saw and what they heard. john? >> early it's still early. officials talking about the possibility of criminal charges? >> they're definitely talk of that, john, in part because all of the licensing of this nightclub had had expired in august. the northern hemisphere summer. all of its paperwork wasn't in order. did they have a license to be operating, emergency procedures in place, all of these could lead to some kind of charges in the future.
>> we're hearing there 20,000 people, who were these people, are we talking college students here? >> yes, this is the real tragedy. this is a college town. four universities here. the big federal university and apparently a good half of the people who died went to that federal university. they were having a party there the other night. the agriculture students were having a big party. i talked to one boy last night a 19-year-old who lost his 24-year-old brother. they were studying agronomy together. this is a huge tragedy for everyone. >> chasta darlington, thank you for being here. lot more to get you caught up on this morning. a sloppy wintry storm moving east. an ice mess from indy down to kentucky. cancelling flights at o'hare in

welcome back, everyone. 57 minutes after the hour. i'm john berman along with christine romans. the top cnn trends on the interwebs this morning. >> this started to come out overnight. reports that chris brown was involved in another brawl with frank ocean, tmz saying that police were called to the scene in l.a. where brown had a run-in with ocean's people. but tmz said there were no arrests. >> sounds like trouble. the confusing play at the nfl pro bowl yesterday. this is center jeff saturday, he lined up on the wrong team for one play. but this was for sentimental reasons. jeff saturday was allowed to break the rules to share one final moment with longtime quarterback peyton manning. see manning got to stare at manning's behind for 13 seasons.
saturday is retiring. they got to share one more quiet moment together. >> and the rest of world. early start continues right now. 233. that's where the death toll now stands in the brazil nightclub fire. plus a sloppy commute expected for millions of people this morning. we'll have a live report straight ahead. . i think hillary clinton will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we had. >> one heck of a moment between the president and the secretary of state. but why all of the love. >> such good friends. >> very good friends. what a difference four years make. i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. it's monday, january 28th. it's 6:00 a.m. in the east. we'll begin with this developing awful story out of
brazil. funerals begin today of victims of this night club inferno. 233 people killed, almost half of college students celebrating their last weekend of summer break at the kiss nightclub this is located in santa maria in the southernmost state of brazil. they are hearing the awful, eerie sounds of ring tones as desperate families hope that their loved ones will answer. shasta darlingt toton joins us more. >> reporter: i am just up the street from the kiss nightclub. investigators are inside, trying to find clues and narrow down what exactly caused this inferno saturday night/sunday morning. it is very quiet. you will see a lot of passers bye, journalists, early sunday morning, an entirely different
situation. smoke filled the air when the first firefighters entered the nightclub, where shirtless men were already trying to rescue some of the injured. emergency vehicles arrived not realizing the extent of the tragedy they faced. chaos and terror among survivors and the bodies of victims all around. the fire broke out at about 2:00 in the morning at a nightclub called kiss in santa maria in brazil's southernmost state. the club packed with almost 2,000 people, twice its capacity say legal officials. >> translator: people informed them when they came out, they blocked the exit to prevent people from leaving and that's when the crowd started panicking and the tragedy grew worse. >> reporter: when they came out, security guards blocked exits to prevent people from leaving he says, that's when the crowd started panicking. this is santa maria's local gym
pace it's been turned into a makeshift morgue. trying to identify relatives, young people, late teens, early 20s, died of asphyxiation and some were trampled to death. as the coffins were lined up, investigators tore for the search of the fire. brazilian president dilma rousseff headed to santa maria to oversee the tragedy. this was the last chance to party for many young people due back at school or work on monday. now, this is the really sad thing. this is a college town and thha of course, affected everyone. when we were at the gymnasium, i
spoke to a 19-year-old boy who was looking for his brother. he was supposed to go out with him, and he decided last minute to stay home. they were sort of joined at the hip, john. >> shasta, one of the things we're hearing out of this horrible incident are the stories that somehow security guards were blocking people from getting out. why might this be? >> what we've heard from survivors, security guards might have been initially blocking the exits because they didn't realize there was a fire. this has to be investigated. that will about one of the lines of investigation. if they somehow made this tragedy worse than it needed to be. we're not here to judge that we'll let the investigators tell us where that takes them. part of the problem, one narrow
exit. this building squeezed between two other buildings. no lateral exit, no exit out the back. one exit, and if security guards were blocking it, it would have made it impossible for hundreds and hundreds, apparently 2,000 people, to get out, john. >> shasta darlington in brazil, thank you very much. up in the next half hour, author and attorney john barolek. he represented victims and families of the station fire in rhode island. he also wrote a book called "killer show." >> did you see it? quite a love fest. hillary clinton and president obama sat down on "60 minutes" over the weekend. they seemed relaxed and shared laughs. the president called her one of
the greatest diplomats in u.s. history. would he endorse her for president in 2016? brianna keilar with more. >> reporter: president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton, once bitter rivals, now allies. >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> very warm, close. i think there is a sense of understanding that, you know, sometimes doesn't even take words, because we have similar views. >> reporter: rewind five years to their bruising primary battle. >> you're likeable enough. >> thank you so much. >> i'm here, he's not. >> i can't tell who i'm running against sometimes. >> how long did it take to you get over it? >> not as long as people perceive it. >> reporter: took longer for their staffs. not to mention -- >> i think spouses take it much
harder. >> reporter: 2016 came up. the president laughed off a question of endorsing hillary clinton. >> you are talking about elections four years from now. >> reporter: and the secretary of state side step. >> i don't think he or i can make predictions about what is going to happen tomorrow or the next year. >> reporter: clinton, who recently suffered a concussion and blood clot, answered questions about her health. >> it's great. i have some lingering affects from falling on my head and the blood clot, the doctors tell me that will all recede, thankfully, looking forward to being at full speed. >> reporter: brow anna keilar, cnn, washington. >> for more on the "60 minutes" interview, we have former assistant secretary of state jamie rubin will join us.
>> another different response about will she run for president. not negative, no, no, no, i'm not going to run. >> we should string all of the differentitierations of not no together. >> interesting. and snowy, icy, rainy commute for millions. the storm that coated the midwest with ice is headed north. could bring snow, freezing rain and sleet to the north yesterday. flights in and out of chicago, minneapolis, all grounded on icy runways. 200 flights canceled at o'hare. check this out. new york city firefighters chipping away at a hydrant literally frozen. new york went seven days without temperatures cracking above the freezing mark. jennifer delgado joins us now. >> a lot of us forget how tough

cell phones runging in the burnt-out nightclub in brazil. families hoping to get in touch with loved ones. new reports that chris brown was in another fight. this time with frank ocean, the r & b artist who announced he was in a same-sex relationship. highlights from last night's screen actors guild awards. i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans in for zoraida. 25 mi 29 minutes past the hour. more on the nightclub fire that killed 239 people. workers digging through the
rubble of the kiss nightclub in santa maria. reports they are hearing cell phones ringing, cell phones of people not there to answer them. the fire shares some eerie similarities with the station nightclub fire in rhode island. this after fireworks went off during an overcrowded fire, setting fire to flammable foam on the wall. a bottleneck kept people from exiting from the front. have we learned lessons from the tragedy? we have the author of "killer show." he represented victims of the station nightclub fire. you hear about the tragedy in brazil, there are a lot of similarities to the tragedy in rhode island a decade ago. >> there really is. as humans, we are slow learners.
pyrotechnics in brazil. issues with overcrowding, flammable wall coverings and inadequate training of staff. >> since rhode island there, are other example where is pyro tech knicks have played a part in starting fires, indoor nightclubs five other times. you look at this. in argentina, 174 killed in 2004. ecuad ecuador, 14 there. take land, 64 in 2009. in russia, 156 dead and in brazil, we know the number now, revising it to 231 dead. why are we not learning these lessons? >> i can't say why. i think we value spectacle and this is an abject lesson for promoters and performers. >> making sure we have exits, making sure we have capacity rules and we're following them
in the u.s. has the nightclub industry changed in the u.s. at least since the 2003 fire? >> i think fortunately here in the u.s., we've had some valuable changes. in rhode island, the fire code has been strengthened to require sprinkling of buildings that hitherto had been grandfathered in and in most venues around the country if you go to a concert. preconcert announcement about exits and about available emergency procedures. conversely, we haven't learned completely. rhode island, since the fire, loosened its requirements for the public purchase of fireworks. there will be tragedies to come, unfortunately. >> let me ask you about what people can do. kuwait for new rules or legislation, or you can assume that a nightclub or big venue will have the proper evacuation procedures. in this case, it seems early moments of chaos on the ground, reporting that there were people who weren't letting people out of the building.
what can a club goer do? what can do you to be your own best fire marshal? >> that's the key phrase. the takeaway, can't rely upon others. club owners and promoters to ensure our safety. when you get to a venue, look at the venue. does it look well maintained. look at the staff. do they appear to be trained in any degree? as you make your way to your seat, have you passed through pitch points that might impede your exit. most important, when you get to your seat, look for the nearest exit. likely it won't be the up with you came in through and share the information with your party. the first sign of any trouble you are headed to the exit. >> john, here is the thing. these are 19 and 20-year-old kids, college kids, celebrating the last bit of summer before they are going to go back to school. i mean, i think when you are young, you just assume where you are is safe. you know, it's so hard to have an evacuation strategy for all of these things you go through in life. >> that's a mind-set we have to
change. i know all young people think they are immortal, but these incidents show the impossible can happen. and we really have to look out for ourselves. you have to go with your gut. if you get into a venue and it feels too crowded or wrong, leave. because there is no concert worth your life. >> john, thank you for joining us. certainly our hearts go out to the prayers, with all of them. >> i spoke with john. and he has been to concerts and said, you know what? i'm going to leave. >> in an airplane, i always look for the exits and a big, tall building, after september 11th, i think about how i'm going to get out. i don't think about that at a concert. maybe that has to change. be careful on the roads today. check the flights. a sloppy winter storm heading
east. heavy snow grounded flights in chicago. and sleet and freezing rain could kick off the week. happy monday. jennifer delgado with a look ahead at the storm this morning. good morning. >> hi, there. like it when you break everybody in to the bad news. it's sloppy out there. temperatures very close to the freezing mark through parts of the midwest. areas like detroit. precipitation tapering off. near the freezing point. slippery roadways out there. and to the east, see what's happening. snow affecting parts of new york and eastern parts of pennsylvania. yosee where the freezing rain is. temperatures, hovering near the freezing mark. that's why we are saying you need to be careful on the roadways, especially through 10:00 a.m., noon in some parts. up and down interstate 95, including washington, d.c., norfolk. dealing with a bit of wintry mix including sleet, freezing rain and snow. again, better chance of that to
come to an end late this morning. how about travel delays that john was mentioning? boston, p.m. snow for new england. washington, d.c., freezing rain and for chicago, clouds around. delays roughly about an hour, but i have to tell you about this very quickly. for home, because we are seeing the warmup, we will deal with the threat for tornadoes tomorrow, as this line of very strong storms moves over toward the east. affecting the northeast. down towards parts of the gulf of mexico. we'll send it back over to you two. certainly, pay attention to this. a lot of those moving through the overnight hours when people are sleeping, and, of course, we know that's dangerous. >> we know you will be watching that for us. jennifer delgado, thank you very much. oscar night still four weeks away last night, a really big deal in hollywood. 19th annual screen actors guild awards. the best in television and film. and don't you know, the ceremony had a surprise ending.
michelle turner was there for all of it. >> john, i don't know if i woke up, i don't think i went to sleep. i'm just here. but you're right. a surprise ending, and by that, we mean argo winning best cast ensemble of the night for its movie, going in, a lot of people thought lincoln was the big front-runner going into awards season, "argo" snuck up on a lot of people and taken a lot of awards and could be the front-runner going into the oscars. a lot of surprises for ben affleck. go ahead and take it. actors, actors, everywhere. the 19th screen actors guild award about union in every way. both jennifer lawrence and anne hathaway, who won supporting actress talked about getting their s.a.g. cards at age 14.

share credit with the entire cast of "lincoln." >> have no doubt this is an ensemble award. >> reporter: the ensemble award went to "argo,". director and star ben affleck praised his cast and everyone. >> we wanted to kill it to make the movie better. that's what actors do all over the world every day. god bless you, thank you so much for making the movies that you make and the television you make. >> that was a great moment. and i'm actually practicing my surprise face like all of the celebrities in the audience when they win. >> that is really good. great surprise face. i'll let you do it one more time. something of a surprise in the tv drama category. show me the surprise face. >> downton abbey." ah! a pleasant surprise. a lot of experts, john, had "homeland" winning in that category, cleaned up in the
golden globes, but it has really found its audience and remains a hit with critics. i'm new to the "downton abbey" party. i just started watching it so i could catch up during awards season and i immediately became hooked. i understand when people say one time you watch it, and you can't stop watching. i know it sounds cliche, but they did look incredibly shocked on the they were all excited just to be there. first time ever at the screen actors dwu s guild, most of the. >> it's nice to see people in hollywood genuinely happy. >> he says with sarcasm. >> no, i mean it. no cynicism on "early start." you should know that. >> show me the surprise face again. >> so much good tv and movies.

look being live right now at washington, d.c., our nation's capital. i think it's safe to say there is a new level of political intrigue because of something that air on television last night. a rare sight to see. president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down together, side by side, for a joint interview. this as mrs. clinton prepares to leave office on friday. the two indulged in a lot of mutuual praise while talking to "60 minutes." >> hillary will go down as one of the best secretary of states we've had. >> this has been such an honor. >> such an important adviser on a whole range of issues. >> i want to bring in jamie rubin. i have to ask, when you sat down
and watched that interview, what do you see? >> i guess just seeing the interview itself is pretty stunning. i have worked in the area for the secretary of state, working for the white house, setting up various media opportunities and never heard of over seen anything like that, where you have the president actually side sbid with a member of his cabinet, any member of his cabinet. anyone at all. the president always goes alone, so i thought that was pretty unusual and clearly an attempt to try to shape the first draft of history of hillary clinton secretary of stateship. >> as i was watching, i wonder why do this? >> i suspect that prior to the benghazi attacks on september 11th of last year, the secretary
of state had a planned a series of interviews to sort of end her term, a kind of legacy set of interviews, and i suspect the combination of the benghazi attacks, the hearings, her illness, her travel and all of that controversy made it impossible to have a set of interviews with, say, "60 minutes" or others that would have normally been done at the end of terms, so this way, using this combination of the president and the secretary of state was a way to sort of highlight the successes of that era. >> and it really was a love fest. i mean, they were fawning over each other in some cases. not always been thus for hillary clinton and barack obama. the not so greatest hits from their relationship four years ago. >> tactics right out of karl rove's playbook. shame on you. >> shame on her, she is talking like annie oakley. >> maybe we should ask barack if he's comfortable, needs another llpillow.
>> while i was working on the streets, you were sitting on the corporate board at walmart. >> now they couldn't be better friends. believable? >> what people don't understand, no matter how intense the campaign was and it was unusually intense for democrats, four years of being in the trenches together in washington on the same side, in the same cabinet, being shot at from all directions, not just, you know, normal media criticism, fellow democrats criticizing republicans, criticizing foreign governments on a different side. nothing like four years of being in the same trench to bring even people who have disagreed strongly close together. >> and we don't have time to play the clip right now. but obviously asked about 2016, and the president had a joke prepared for it, and mrs. clinton demured and said i'm not going to talk about the future right now. any sign from the fact that they merely did the interview that it's still a possibility for her? >> the interview for me was more about her legacy as secretary of
state than the politics. >> jamie rubin, always great to see you. i appreciate it. when we come back, our best advice. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work.
