suffered last night by kevin ware the equivalent to a car crash. it was a horrific and gruesome thing to see. >> kevin ware just took a shot, oh, my goodness. >> reporter: with 6:30 left in the first half in an elite 8 game, between duke and louisville, kevin ware landed awkwardly, after contesting a shot in the front of his own bench. >> that is a gruesome-looking injury to kevin ware. >> reporter: as ware touched down, his right leg detonated beneath him, breaking in two places, his bone protruding through his skin. >> when he landed, i heard it. and i didn't ever think in a million years i would see something like that. >> reporter: cbs stopped showing the replay during the game. and the tears in the eyes of fans, players, and coaches on both teams said it all. >> i got everybody over after we covered up the injury. i said, listen to him. he said it over ten times. just win the game, i'll be okay. >> when kevin landed and his

foot planted, the significant forces on the bones led to it coming through the soft tissue. >> reporter: overnight, in a two-hour surgery, doctors successfully reset his tibia and inserted a rod into his leg. ware's friends and family tweeted this picture. >> he'll likely need a significant amount of rehabilitation. to regain his mobility. >> reporter: in an essential way, he never left the team's side. a teammate donned his jersey. with the win, it was on to the final four in atlanta, the hometown of kevin ware. it's not often that the best team in the tournament is seen as the sympathetic favorite. his teammates really rallied behind him last night. people were talking about the injury to joe theismann in football. he should be back in about a
7:02 am
year's time if everything goes well. >> he rallied around the team. it was incredible. >> win the game. and they did. >> josh, thanks very much. the latest on the manhunt in texas for the killers of a district attorney and his wife gunned down in their home this weekend. the killing came just two months after another prosecutor in the same county was murdered. pierre thomas is there. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's unheard of for top law enforcement officials to be executed in a small town like this. today, the fbi, atf, and local marshals are here to help solve these shocking murders. an army of police are trying to find out who broke into the home of mike mclelland, the county's top prosecutor, and murdered him and his wife in cold blood. >> it's unnerving to the law enforcement community. it's unnerving to the community at large.
7:03 am
>> reporter: it was weeks ago that he had vowed to find the killer of one of his top deputies, assistant district attorney mark hasse. in late january, he was executed in broad daylight by two suspects dressed in black s.w.a.t. gear. >> i hope that the people that did this are watching, because we're very confident that we're going to find you. we're going to pull you out of whatever hole you're in. >> reporter: sources tell abc news that an assault-style rifle was used to fire multiple shots at mclelland and his wife. prosecutors are reviewing cases looking for a motive and any similarities, including any possible link to the colorado chief of corrections, gunned down at his front door just two weeks ago. the suspect in that case, who police believe was a member of a colorado prison white supremacist gang, was fatally wounded in a high-speed chase
7:04 am
only 100 miles from kaufman. mclelland said his office put some real dents into a white supremacist group in texas. but while they're possible suspects, there's a long list of people who might have a vendetta against these men and possibly others in law enforcement here. amy? >> pierre thomas, thank you so much. and abc's john schriffen is live at the kaufman county courthouse. where security has already been increased. john, good morning. >> reporter: well, amy, good morning to you. when this courthouse reopens today, the public will notice a different look. security will be beefed up to protect the remaining prosecutors here. because of what is going on here, it's creating a ripple effect throughout texas.
7:05 am
in harris county, which is houston, the district attorney has been offered and accepted 24-hour security protection for he and his family. sure this is a small town. but other cities around texas are on notice and taking this very seriously. george? >> let's get more from dan abrams. you have a -- a web of prosecutors, dozens of prosecutors in the area. how can they protect all of them? >> that's why information becomes so important. they need leads. they need to figure out who the targets may be. as you point out, you can give 24-hour surveillance and protection to particular people. if you're protecting the wrong people, it doesn't do any good. this is a case that will be a-1 priority not just in this community and in texas. as you can tell, all the federal authorities are there. why? not because they know the prosecutor and they know the
7:06 am
person who was the victim, because this is an attack on the fabric of our legal system. if people start to feel like this is something that will happen regularly, our legal system is in real trouble. and i think that is why they'll move forward to solve the case as quickly as possible and follow up on it. >> police believe the killings are connected and how and how many people are involved is the question. >> the question becomes is it possible that one was a copycat? that one -- that someone saw what happened in one case and decided, okay, i'm going to go do that again. more likely authorities, if they're thinking they are connected by the same person or people. they have to be careful about not jumping to conclusions. >> some clues that the first killing was more sophisticated than the second? >> absolutely. they'll take it into consideration. it's possible it's been ordered by the same person, et cetera. you have to be careful. >> thanks, dan. george, now to that
7:07 am
startling story at walmart, where an out-of-control driver pulled through the front of the store. then he emerged with a blunt instrument striking everyone in his path. abc's john muller is here with more. >> police are trying to figure out why this man sent people scrambling for their lives. four people couldn't get out of the way. a terrifying easter sunday for customers and workers at this walmart in san jose, california. when this oldsmobile cutlass crushed right through the front of the store. careening 20 feet, coming to a stop on a beer display. >> i heard this big crash, like something big fell off the shelf, broke. my heart was beating the whole time. >> reporter: but the crash didn't stop the driver from completing his bizarre mission. he emerged from the car with a blunt object and began clubbing everyone in his path.
7:08 am
>> we found a total of nine people injured, three of them were transported to local hospitals. two were in critical condition. >> reporter: the only thing that couldn't stop him, the bravery of some everyday citizens inside the store. >> the police didn't have to use force. it sounded like some of the onlookers might have used force to take him into custody. >> reporter: the driver, who has been arrested but not identified, began his wild ride by hitting two cars in the parking lot. >> he hit one car before me. he hit me. >> reporter: some witnesses said that he may have been going as fast as 40 miles an hour when he burst through the store. >> broken glass. flying debris. it was absolutely chaotic with the number of people in the store. >> reporter: the most seriously injured person, a cashier. hit in the head with debris. the rest of the injured not in life-threatening condition. police believe drugs or alcohol could have been involved. again, the motivation, still a mystery. let's turn to josh with the
7:09 am
other top stories. amy, we're going to begin with yet another new show of force on the korean peninsula. the u.s. has flown fighter jets like this to south korea for military exercises, one day after the north announced it's entered a state of war. abc's martha raddatz is in south korea. >> reporter: president park has issued a strong warning to north korea this morning. saying if north korea attacks, south korea will respond militarily. she said this morning that's what the military is for, to protect its people. three years ago this ship was struck by a north korean torpedo. it sunk, killing 46 sailors. south korea did not respond that time. this time around, north korea is
7:10 am
only issuining verbal threats. the u.s. and south korea are doing everything possible to make sure that north korea is only issuing threats. new information overnight about that jaw-dropping pileup on a virginia highway. a total of 95 vehicles collided in confusion sunday. the drivers blinded by heavy fog on interstate 77. these pictures are surreal. three people were killed in the massive chain reaction. the highway has now reopened. and two state troopers in alaska and a snowmobiler they rescued are presumed dead after their helicopter, seen here, crashed in bad weather. authorities found the crash site but thus far no sign of survivors. while in maryland, a helicopter team rescued a kayaker stranded in the rushing waters of the potomac river. his kayak flipped over. one rescuer lowered down, attached the kayaker to the hoist, and lifted the man to
7:11 am
safety. and we have exclusive new details about millions in federal aid misspent in the wake of hurricane katrina. jeff zeleny's learned some $700 million in disaster funds meant to shore-up houses against future flooding was actually pocketed by homeowners. the government is now pushing to get the money back. and the major league baseball season under way. the astros, new to the american league, didn't look it last night. they topped the texas rangers, 8-2. and let's be honest, it's not every day you see a pro golfer take his pants off on the course. it happened when andreas harto's ball came close to the water. he went and marked his ball before -- actually, then rushed back. feel free, at any point, to put your pants back on. >> oh, my goodness.
7:12 am
>> you may feel free, this is really rough for those of us, i think -- >> i like how he's walking like -- look at that. >> it wouldn't be so bad but for the duck walk. >> and to everybody again outside the state of texas, happy opening day, people. >> hear, hear. it's great to be here. we turn to the latest on the health crisis out of oklahoma, where officials have started testing thousands of patients for hiv and hepatitis after discovering years of shockingly unsanitary conditions in the dental office of scott harrington. abc's rob nelson has the story. >> i feel very nervous. i feel upset. i feel a lot of anger for the situation. i am just hoping for the best. that's all i can do. >> reporter: it's that mix of fear and helplessness that continues to grip the tulsa area today with the health of 7,000 residents still hanging in the
7:13 am
balance. >> i just remember screaming, what? and -- um -- just saying, that can't be possible. >> reporter: disturbingly unsanitary conditions unveiled last week at the office of scott harrington has touched off a public health crisis. as officials today continue screening patients for hepatitis and hiv. >> if a person gets stuck with a needle that has come out of the vein of a person with hiv disease, the likelihood of them contracting hiv is about 0.3%. not extremely high. >> reporter: more than 400 patients were screened since saturday. the entire process could last weeks. harrington faces a laundry list of complaints. rusty instruments, reused needles and unsterilized equipment. six years' worth of patients are caught in the crosshairs. >> it gives me a strange feeling. it's -- what if? you know, i really don't -- i don't like to think about it. >> reporter: there's been no
7:14 am
public comment from the doctor or his lawyer. >> hi, there. dr. harrington? >> reporter: a few days ago, he slammed the door in the faces of reporters who showed up at his second home in phoenix. for former patients, a frightening waiting game continues. now, harrington temporarily surrendered his license last month. a hearing is set for april 19th. where it could be revoked altogether. there's a possibility he'll face criminal charges. no one expects something like this from a simple trip to the dentist. >> scary stuff. now to the young woman stranded on oregon's mt. hood in harrowing conditions, she's now speaking out for the first time about her ordeal. abc's neal karlinsky reports. >> reporter: a week ago this morning, 23-year-old mary owen could only dream of a hospital bed. she was lying in the snow, stranded 4600 feet up oregon's mt. hood. she had slipped during a whiteout and hurt her leg badly. >> you want protection from the wind and the elements.
7:15 am
>> reporter: owen's an experienced climber and was certain she would be found soon. time passed. no one came. she melted snow for water and started fires for warmth. for six excruciating days, on the mountain alone and injured. occasionally moving when avalanches happened. >> i had a dream about people telling me how to get off the mountain. i would pack my stuff up and get ready to go and there was nobody there. >> reporter: she thought she might die. something that never really scared her before. >> i treated death carelessly. as i was out there, i was thinking about the loose ends i left behind. >> reporter: saturday, after nearly a full week on the mountain, a helicopter spotted her. >> i was very, very much overwhelmed. i was screaming for them to come back for me. they did. they turned around and came back. that was -- that was a good moment.
7:16 am
>> we're just praising god and just so happy. >> reporter: she has frostbite on her toes and is otherwise just fine. she got the two things she wanted most besides being rescued, french toast and a bath. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> what an amazing young woman. >> absolutely. let's get the weather now from sam. >> we're going to start with the fog situation that is all over the east and the southeast. in josh's news, the difficulty in driving through that and how it can cause accidents. it can also be a gorgeous morning shot. if you're very, very careful on the roads, we'll get through the morning. if you look to the left, the sun. to the right, that's the washington monument sticking through the fog. that is how heavy the fog is. it's from annapolis, around the chesapeake, all the way down to atlanta. jackson, about five miles of visibility. all the warm air in the deep south. colder temperatures dropping down one more time. we'll go through that in the next half hour.

7:19 am
by actually working inside my body. in clinical trials, most adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority of people were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. make the most of every moment. ask your dermatologist about humira, today. clearer skin is possible. people have been daring them to clean up tough messes.

the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban
8:13 am
without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful?

8:31 am
eight brothers. and then i have eight children. so i just wanted to do something to honor her. i think she was one of the greatest women that i knew. >> what is the one piece of wisdom that you're most grateful for? >> one piece of wisdom? to love yourself. you know, think that that comes off as, selfish or whatever, but to really honor who you are as a person. the core values, the book is about various values that she taught me and our lives today are very different as mothers. my mother was a stay-at-home mother. she was always there for us. >> you were always working. >> i have always been a working mother. i have always had to support the family. so it's a different set of rules. but i don't think -- but it's like my mother always said, people may change, but truth done. there's a lot of wisdom in the things she taught me.
8:32 am
whether you're a stay-at-home mom or a working mom, it's the wisdom from her. i went through journals. just a remarkable woman. >> you're open about the pain. you have had the hardest blow any mother can have. your son michael committed suicide about two years ago now. you write about how that day you knew something was wrong? >> you know, it's that intuition that all women have. i think in this busy world that we live in, we forget to be still. and it's -- it's the hardest thing. i have lost my parents. i feel like, you know, i knew what it felt like to be an orphan. to be the only girl, lose my mother, then my father. but to lose a child is something that's not supposed to happen. what pulled me through, her wisdom and the information i put in there is -- i know from postpartum depression. i wrote a book about that. you think everybody's life is better off without you in it.
8:33 am
that is a lie. there is nothing better without the people you love in it. >> and you also talk about the lessons you learn from your daughter, jessica. the lesson about listening. she came out to you as a lesbian when she was 17. >> 17. >> you write honestly about that process and how other families have come to you and thanking you for teaching them to communicate about them. >> it's like the title of the book. love is the key. i can't imagine i would want anything different for any of my children. i love her. she's a remarkable woman. she has the heart, bigger than the world and -- she's my kid. what can i say. and so i do believe in love. i believe in the principles of that and to honor each other. >> would you like to see her married? >> you know what, i would love to see her do what ever she wants. i know that she has been in some relationships. i don't think we should let
8:34 am
