[ chanting ] >> miners trapped underground for months have been waiting for this. they're being pulled out one by one seeing their fames and breathing fresh air. you're looking now where crews are hard at work. each rescue takes about an hour round trip. there are still 31 miners underground. they have got a long way to go before everyone is out. we are shown the operation being watched from around the world. >> reporter: the first of the trapped miners are finally free. florencia silva embraced his young son and wife. he hugged the rescue workers who saved his life. then paramedics whisked him away for treatment.
chile's president said this rescue makes his country proud. they are being pulled one at a time. each journey from 2000 feet below will take about 20 minutes. it could take more than 36 hours before everyone is out. ship leader is expected to be he last man out. keeping their stable on the journey is a big concern. they'll wear pressure stockings while pulled out. if they're up to it, they will see family. they'll then be flown to a hospital for a complete examination. some miners are suffering skin and respiratory problems. everyone is keeping their fingers crossed that every man makes it out okay. while some are planning celebrations, many families are asking for privacy after their
two-month ordeal. cback news. >> here's an idea of what the miners see inside that capsule. it is a tight space. they have to travel with their arms folded in front of them. one woman has been terrorizing people in a bay area neighborhood for months now. despite calls to police, the harassment just keeping happening. and she is getting more and more violent, they say. joe vasquez caught up with the woman and talked to people that were alleged assaulted. >> reporter: one of the great neighborhoods of san fransisco here, but like many neighborhoods, struggling with the homeless situation. in this case, it's a woman who's been assaulted people. in most cases it's verbal but it's been increasingly violent. >> she grabbed me with both hands and just started shaking me. >> reporter: a woman pushing
her child in a stroller. >> she said i'm going to hurt you. why are you being like this. and i said i don't know what you're talking about. >> reporter: a man walking down the street. >> out of the blue, i was hit in the back with a board. >> reporter: random acts of violence in the inner sunset. a punch here, a thrown coke can there. constant yelling at strangers. the victims say the attacker is this homeless woman. >> she is suffering from mental illness but yet the system isn't treating her. >> reporter: the police are called quite often. in some cases she is given a ticket and is back on the street. >> we want to be sympathetic but at the same time she is beating people up. >> reporter: people tell me she's walked the streets for years and she is getting sicker and more violent. we caught up with her as she was boarding a bus.
she declined an interview. so we left her alone. the mayor's chief says the city has huge cracks. instead of being flagged by the courts. in the current configuration, they can hope that homeless people will accept an offer of a shelter. >> it's really frustrating for me that it's going on in the streets. especially when i know that someone has been offered services day in and day out and they've decided to turn us down on that. >> reporter: saying they're trying to work on a new system. they're trying to identify the 40 worst offenders in the city of san fransisco and focus their efforts on them. in the meantime, what we're hearing from both victims out here is if they want restraining orders on their attackers, they have to actually serve those
restraining orders themselves, that is hand them the paperwork. >> paper is not going to work in this. there is a certain percentage of the homeless out there that need mental help. they're sick people. and giving her tickets and serving her papers is not going to work, they need her in the system and figure out what's best. >> reporter: and the system needs to figure out how to deal with people like that. the san bruno neighborhood destroyed in the pipeline explosion is all cleaned up. it's been five weeks since the natural gas exploded killing eight people and leveling 35 homes. city has promised homeowners they can start rebuilding soon. but some say they're not so sure they want to rebuild. >> why would i want to build a home right next and runs up
that street there, why would i want to build a home here knowing that can happen again. >> air and ground monitoring tests show the crews managed to clean up most if not all of the toxins left behind. a federal judge has ordered the military to stop enforcing don't ask, don't tell. it ends the military's 17-year ban on openly gay troops. it accomplished what president obama and congressional democrats were unable to do. didn't of justice lawyers have 60 days to appeal but they are not obligated to do so. and legal experts say they could decide to let this ruling stand. the nasty comment from a jerry brown campaign staffer, meg whitman's exhousekeeper, both subjects came up at the third and final debate tonight. robert lyle shows us it didn't take long for things to get testy. >> reporter: as you just described, fireworks were expected on the stage here
tonight at dominican university and both candidates fired at one another in explosive exchanges. as you're about to see, it's the moderator who fired tough questions at whitman and brown. >> somebody in your campaign referred to ms. whitman as a whore. a campaign spokesman then apologized. we heard no outrage from you about the use of that kind of language which to many women is the same as calling an african- american the n word. >> i don't agree with that comparison. number two, that is a five-week old private conversation picked up on a cell phone. >> reporter: brown said the whore comment was recorded from a garbled conversation that it was hard to see who it was. whitman went on the attack.
>> i think everyone californian woman knows that is terrible. >> who calls congress whores to the public sector unions? >> you know better than that. that's a completely different thing. >> reporter: but she refused to say how her use of whore was different. so brokaw didn't relent. he went to immigration. then went for the jugular. >> if you couldn't find someone in your home was undocumented or illegal, how do you expect businesses to be able to do that? >> reporter: whitman's answer: she went through an employment agency and diaz falsified the documents. >> it broke my heart but i had to let her go. this is why we need a good e-
verify system. >> that's like treating mexicans like surfs to use them and send them back. it's not right. >> if you were so interested in the state of california why didn't you vote all those years or get involved in state commissions or other parts of public life? >> i am not proud of my voting record. it was wrong. and i take full accountability and responsibility for it. and i apologize to the people of california. >> reporter: whitman says she invested millions of her dollars so she wouldn't be in the back pockets of the unions. >> i want to add one more thing on the cops. i've got the police chief's in backing me because i'm tough on crime. [ laughter ] >> i think he said he's got in his back pocket. >> no. >> reporter: brokaw wrapped up tonight by asking brown with president obama coming to town if he will be stumping for
votes with the president. brown said yes. brokaw asked whitman with sarah palin coming to town would the two be campaigning together. her response: she'll be campaigning alone. >> let me ask you, was it more light or more heat? >> reporter: i can tell you that it started off incredibly slow. we were in the media room. there were a lot of responses about what they would do financially with the budget. then it quickly turned into heat. i can say it progressed and even ended with some heat. particularly with the questions about how they would be campaigning together. >> all right. thank you. switching gears here, here is a way to celebrate the giants division victory. you can adopt a cat with giants colors. the humane society are running a special promotion. look at the kitties. you can adopt a black or orange cat for just $9.
the standard fee ranges from $50-$80. >> cats have nine lives, giants have nine players on the field in nine innings and they win. we adopted 27 cats last weekend. >> the adopt fees include spay or neuter fee, the chip, and health and behavior screening. >> can't do it. >> yes, you can. >> i got three six week old kittens in my house right now. coming up a peeping tom spotted on the cal campus. what he did to get pictures of women. wants to send fifth graders to hang with the big kids. why sending 10-year-olds to middle school is necessary. and is your teen toxing?
using b? as you look at the bay area today on this day, it's a day with heat. why wednesday could be a third day. [ whitman ] they say california can't be governed anymore. i say baloney. this state belongs to all of us. we just have to decide we want to change. i know government isn't a business and it shouldn't be, but the same values of accountability and focus that make california businesses among the best in the world could do a lot to fix sacramento. i'm on a mission to create more jobs, stop wasteful spending, and improve our schools. let's get to work. ♪
