7:01 am
what if you could dance and learn from madonna? thousands lined up, we were there as hundreds got the chance to learn her moves. we go one on one with the queen of pop. >> good morning, america! and we do say good morning, america. happy summer. the first day of summer. george is probably off sunbathing right now. he has the day off. >> good picture. >> good to have josh here by my side. and weekend anchor, bianna golodryga, here with us, as well. good to have you here. i think they're still celebrating down in miami. rightfully so. >> yeah. i don't know. nice job, lara. well done, you. a thrilling game seven. ending a great series.
7:02 am
>> what a series. >> it was all things. but in the end, the championship stays in miami for a second-consecutive year. lebron james, getting it done. we will hear from all of them this morning. >> mvp, king james. we're going to keep a close eye on the markets this morning, after the deep dip on thursday. we're live at the new york stock exchange, for the latest on all that. >> we do want to get there. but let's get back to miami, if only we all could. a thrilling finish to the nba finals. the heat, beating the spurs in a tense and at times chaotic game seven. they did it again. needing to beat san antonio twice at home to defend its title, the heat triumphed, 95-88, in a game that took everything from both teams. >> the hardest series we ever had to play. but you know, we're a resilient team. and we did whatever it took. >> reporter: an intense and sometimes sloppy affair that was
7:03 am
close throughout. the sport's best player was just that, when it mattered most. >> james, pulls up. puts it in. >> reporter: it was a 19-foot dagger by lebron james, with just 27 seconds to play and three free throws later -- >> the 2013 nba championship resides once again in miami. >> reporter: james finished with 37 points and 12 boards. a snapshot of willful brilliance that earned him the finals mvp award. >> to come through for my teammates in the biggest moments on the biggest stage, makes me more satisfied than anything in the world. >> reporter: the droplets renewing miami's reign for the year. but the faithful took to the streets in south florida. lebron james joins michael jordan and bill russell, the only players to win back-to-back mvps, back-to-back titles.
7:04 am
for the casual fan, a game seven is the best thing of all. for the committed, it's a sort of agony. miami heat, those fans, you get to celebrate for another year. >> deservedly so. we'll have more on that later. now, to the scary close call in the skies over new york city. the jumbo jet and the commuter plane from two different airports, getting too close as one was taking off and the other was landing. abc's david kerley joins us in washington with the latest on all this. good morning, david. >> reporter: robin, obviously, this is not supposed to happen. two planes getting far too close together. it was a jumbo jet, a boeing 747. >> 172, heavy. are you turning? >> yes, sir, we're almost at 040 now. >> reporter: delta 172 after a long flight from tokyo is lining up to land at jfk airport. but the 747 pilot decides not to land, to circle around, and try again. but at the very same time, a small delta commuter jet is taking off from nearby la guardia airport. and the two aircraft get too close.
7:05 am
>> we're almost at 040 now. >> delta 172, heavy traffic, 12:00, 1,400 feet. 1600 feet. >> reporter: the two aircraft, headed straight to each other, what the faa calls losing separation. others call it a near miss. >> anytime we have two airplanes that allegedly come within 100 feet of each other, it's not just a violation. it's serious. >> do you have the la guardia departure in sight? >> say again? >> did you have the la guardia departure in sight? >> never saw him. >> reporter: the faa does say the planes were turning away from each other when they got too close. >> we got a systemic failure, obviously, in the system, which is so well-designed, breaks down and we have somebody getting close to somebody else. >> reporter: this happened last friday afternoon. and between 2009 and 2010, there was an alarming 50% increase in these kind of operational errors like this one. the faa says part of that is due
7:06 am
to better reporting. of course, these close calls remain a concern. robin? >> yeah, they do. david, thanks very much. we're going to turn to wall street. walloped for a second-straight day. the dow diving more than 350 points on thursday. its worst day of the year. and abc's rebecca jarvis is downtown at the new york stock exchange right now, to tell us more about what it means for our money right now. good morning to you, rebecca. >> reporter: hi, josh. good morning to you. the dow opened higher, stocks pointing to a better day than the ones we've seen earlier in the week. but this morning, it's a surprise, a lot of the volatility is the result of good news. the 350-point plunge comes just as the government says the economy is getting better. everything from housing to jobs, to consumer spending, all showing improvement. so, why would wall street run scared from such good news? experts say, it's all because fed chair ben bernanke, basically our country's banker in chief, now wants to take the training wheels off our economy.
7:07 am
saying because things are looking up, it's time to dial back on trillions of dollars the fed's been pouring into the markets. >> we've had training wheels on for quite some time now. and now, we're getting word that they're going to have to come off slowly. and we have to see if we can ride this bike on our own. >> reporter: but riding without that help means the cost of borrowing money to do everything from buying a house to starting a business is going up. and that spooks the stock market. and staying on that training wheels theme, traders here on wall street aren't afraid we're going to crash into a wall when the wheels come off. what they're concerned about is things could get wobbly. that means uncertainty and volatilely. they say they're not panicking, it's just 5% below the all-time record highs, and the 40s and
7:08 am
i.r.a.s are doing fine. >> that's good news. thank you, rebecca. >> a silver lining there. now, to the latest development in the george zimmerman trial. an all-woman jury has been seated to decide the fate of the florida neighborhood watch captain, charged in the shooting death of trayvon martin. and abc's matt gutman has all of the details for us and joins us this morning from miami. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. 16 months after trayvon martin was shot, this morning, finally, six jurors. their identity is kept strictly secret. we don't know their names. we don't know their ages. we do know four are mothers and they have key opinions on things like guns and self-defense. the jury of six women, ranging in age from their 20s to their 60s bear the burden of decide ing the most racially-charged trial in a generation. at question, did george zimmerman, a white hispanic man, intentionally shoot and kill trayvon martin, a black teenager? or as zimmerman argues, did he fire in self-defense? five of the women are white. the one person who isn't says she believes in self-defense.
7:09 am
>> i think everybody is entitled to do that in order to protect your life. >> reporter: half the panel has a family member who has a gun or a concealed weapon permit. >> having a woman who solely listens to the experts is more favorable for the defense. >> reporter: one juror admitted she had visited the zimmerman defense fund website. prosecutors objected to her selection but lost. >> that strike will remain. >> reporter: experts say the jury may seem slanted in favor of the defense. but looks can be deceiving. >> women do tend to have more sympathy, and empathy, for the person perceived as the victim. >> reporter: zimmerman spent much of the last nine days huddling with jury consultants and his lawyers, apparently playing an active role in choosing the women who will now decide his fate. >> is this jury panel acceptable to you, sir? >> yes, your honor. >> reporter: now, with the jury nailed down, the rhetoric is heating up. >> this case will fall on the fact that the state cannot convince a jury beyond a
7:10 am
reasonable doubt with their evidence that a crime was committed by my client. >> reporter: now, this seems like a pretty homogenous group. but in their views and experience they represent a broad cross-section of america. these women were told to pack. they could be sequestered up to four weeks on this trial. it starts on monday. and george zimmerman faces possible life imprisonment. we're going to bring in abc's chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams. dan, how unusual for a single-gender jury, in this case, all women? >> i've been covering high-profile cases for 20-something years, i haven't seen one in recent history. they have them. i just haven't seen it. it's definitely unusual to have all of the jurors in one gender. i don't buy into the notion, because you have women, therefore it means blank. i don't think that makes sense. this is a very diverse group of women. the question is going to be, back in the jury room, when they begin deliberating, does that change the dynamic?
7:11 am
i don't know. but there's no question that in this case, prosecutors wanted men of color. the defense wanted white men. neither got exactly what they were looking for. >> since neither got what they were looking for, everyone's trying to read the tea leaves here. does it favor -- this all-woman jury, does it favor one side of the other? >> it's tough to know. you have to go back and look at the answers. you have a couple who have attorneys as close relatives. a couple who are gun owners. one was arrested. all the different experiences are going to be crucial in them reaching a verdict because we'd love to say it's all about the evidence. it's just going to be about the evidence presented in court. but the reality is, they're going to bring in their personal experiences. and that will determine how they see the evidence. what's the prism through which they look at the evidence? and it's absolutely crucial. >> trayvon's parents released a statement overnight, as long as it's fair and unbiased, they want to see the evidence. it starts on monday. what can we expect?
7:12 am
>> expect to see the defense focus on the legal issues. meaning to say, they cannot prove that this was not self-defense. expect the prosecution to say, look at the totality of the circumstances. this couldn't have happened any other way. >> as matt said, two to four weeks. >> that's right. >> thanks, robin. we're going to turn to the doctor's frantic efforts to save the life of james gandolfini. the actor was rushed to the hospital in rome on wednesday, after suffering cardiac arrest in his hotel room. his young son called for help. an autopsy is being done this morning to determine the exact cause of death. and abc's alex marquardt is in rome with the latest this morning. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, josh. this is the hotel where he was saying and where he collapsed. the autopsy was held this morning, and they said he died of a heart attack, natural
7:13 am
causes, nothing else in the system. they arrived in a black van. this is the last known picture of him. eating at a rome restaurant with his 13-year-old son a day before his death. dressed casually, he appears in good spirits. shortly before his death, he had din we are and just a few hours later, he called pleading for help. when they arrived, he was in cardiac arrest. they tried to revief him before rushing him to the emergency room. abc was told that emergency personnel spent 20 minutes trying to revive him at the hospital. >> reporter: how would you describe his condition? critical when he arrived here? >> more than critical, he was dead. >> he had admitted to struggles with addiction and struggles with weight. >> increased weight and regular
7:14 am
smoking increase the risk of heart disease in anyone. >>. >> reporter: but friends say he was elated by the junior high school graduation last friday and looking forward to vacation together. >> the spokesman says they're working with authorities to get the body back to the states as soon as possible. they hoping that will happen by thursday or friday of next week, and hope to have the funeral in new york city by saturday at the latest. josh. >> i hope they get a measure of closure today. these are the top developing stories. >> thank you. breaking news overnight, last minute negotiations on a blockbuster immigration reform deal. they would double the number of border agents and fund hundreds of miles of border fencing. it's expected to be introduced
7:15 am
this morning. and breaking news from canada, the worst flooding in years, and the rain is not letting up. the ranging flood waters could force 100,000 people from thinker homes. the mayor says the worst is yet to come. he's warning everyone to gather their valuables and go. and now new details about the health of nelson mandela. a former south african president says he's in close contact with the doctors and family and his health is in fact improving. good news there. and for the second time this week, a united dreamliner made an unscheduled landing. the boeing 787 from london to houston was diverted to newark because of low engine oil indicator. and turning off your electronic devices, the faa may relax the ban even during takeoffs and landings. cell phone calls will be

offlimits, that could be good news. and finally, minding your manners event in the middle of a disaster. fire fighters battling the worst wildfire in colorado history dragged in dirt, but left a note apologizing for the note. they cried after receiving it. no kpoous, right parents? >> thank you. and now to something that can reluvolutionize the way you use faebs. it's a video service for instagram. here is the first video posted by mark zuckerberg. we have more on this new invasion. >> hello, it's me, bill weir. i'm on the campus of facebook, bringing you the first ever

7:32 am
new england patriots. abc's rob nelson has the very latest from northed massachuset. >> reporter: major breaking news in this case this morning. abc news has just learned that police here have issued an arrest warrant for aaron hernandez for obstruction of justice. and police have brand-new evidence in the case, including surveillance video that puts hernandez and his victim together on camera, just hours before the body in the case was found. >> three. caught. hernandez. >> reporter: investigators tell abc news, video retrieved from surveillance cameras near hernandez's mansion, show the patriots' tight end with 27-year-old oden lloyd, in the hours before lloyd was found dead in this industrial park a mile away. abc news has learned police are now trying to retrieve video from the remains of a security system installed at hernandez's home. sources say when investigators arrived to question the nfl star, they found the system had
7:33 am
been intentionally smashed. when hernandez turned his cell phone over to police, sources say, it, too, was in pieces. abc news has learned investigators also want to know why hernandez hired a large team of housekeepers to clean his million-dollar home monday, the same day lloyd was found, shot execution-style. >> the apparent attempt to destroy evidence, i believe is very telling, that he has at least knowledge, if not involvement, in this particular homicide. >> reporter: we're now learning more about the 23-year-old's previous brushes with the law. according to police, hernandez was one of several university of florida football players questioned but not arrested after a 2007 double-shooting. in may, police say hernandez got into an altercation with hecklers after leaving a bar in providence, rhode island. police recovered a gun from that scene but no charges were filed. and hernandez is being visued f
7:34 am
allegedly shooting a friend in a face in miami in february. no charges have been filed in that case, either. >> mr. hernandez appears to regularly place himself in situations where there are firearms, after-hours clubs and aggressive behavior. and no good will ever come after the combination of those three. >> reporter: meanwhile, the ongoing investigation has created a frenzy outside of hernandez's home. on thursday, news helicopter captured him at a local gas station. and later, arriving at gillette stadium, where the patriots play. now, again, a major development in the story this morning. an arrest warrant has been issued for hernandez for obstruction of justice. a big development there. we'll keep an eye on that. we don't know where hernandez is right now. but we think police will be back in his house later today. josh? >> thanks, rob. and we're going to turn to dan abrams. this is an arrest warrant for obstruction of justice. based on what we know, if anything else, there were many steps taken, it appears, by
7:35 am
hernandez in the last 48 to 72 hours. >> they feel like they've got him on this crime, at the very least. meaning, they've got the destroyed security system. they've got the cell phone in pieces. they've got the housekeeping coming in, et cetera. so, for now, they're saying, boy, we think we've at least got enough to move forward with an arrest on obstruction of justice. that does not mean that they will not later charge him with something more significant. they're going to continue this investigation. they're going to see if they can link him to something more significant. but until then, this arrest warrant is on the table. >> we heard in rob's piece, the references to past troubles. can the past troubles be used? >> think of that. he's accused of shooting a guy in the eye? that's got to be something that the authorities are going to be looking at, in connection with this case. and certainly, if there was a trial, you can use patterns of behavior, at time, as evidence. but no question, his past
7:36 am
skirmishes with the law, whether he got arrested, didn't get arrested, are very front and center in the minds of the investigators who are looking at this case. >> they're building a case if nothing else, on perhaps more serious charge. the next step is what? >> they have to gather additional evidence here. they have to try and intentionally link him to the victim. they say he was seen with him -- he was maybe the last person to be with him. his girlfriend, hernandez's girlfriend, was apparently the sister of the victim -- dating the victim's girlfriend. there's connections here. >> so they shall. not the last we've heard. thanks. we're going to turn back to sam champion, who is out there in a crowded and raucous central park with the weather. sammy? >> i can't tell you how amazing this is. john legend on stage right now, doing his soundcheck before the concert. huge crowd. perfect skies. if we're starting summer this way, i can't wait for the rest
7:37 am
of summer. let's get to the boards. one or two things going on this morning we need to share with you. we're going to start with the west coast. we're going to look at the drought. this is where 50% of the country is in severe drought. take a look at that. and look at the red zone, where it's exceptional. and we don't see anything changing, really. we need to get this monsoon season started where the moisture gets into that area. you're going to pick up about five degrees in heat as you go through the weekend on the east coast. 81 to sunday's 87 in new york city. 85 to 90 in washington, d.c. look for that heat. it's probably exactly what you want as we start your first official weeke a warm-up for our first day of summer. we'll be seeing some of the patchy clouds dissipating this afternoon, 60s along the coast, 70s around the bay, 80s inland. here's my >> this is so amazing.

7:41. we are back. no need. no need. lucky guess. lucky guess. we're talking about the miami heat, of course. the 2013 nba champions. what an incredible series. we can all agree to that. we're going to hear from the heart of the heat, the three players that made that win possible. es espn's sage steele is in miami. >> good morning, lara. as you said, this was a phenomenal series. one of the ages. and in the end, the team that was expected to win, did just that. however, this was a little bit different. i was able to speak to three members of the big three. actually just a couple of hours ago. lebron james, dwyane wade and chris bosh. they all admit, this was tough. it's not easy getting to this point. but it was worth every second. >> what a finish. it's back-to-back titles for the heat. >> reporter: the 2013 nba finals will be remembered from the miami heat coming back from the
7:43 am
brink of elimination to win its second-straight world championship. >> it's so hard to win one. to come back and do it again, it was very -- obviously, it was so hard to do. but i can't wait to keep -- i can't get to get to say back-to-back. >> reporter: just three years ago, the big three made an unforgettable, controversial splash, when they joined forces in miami. >> not two. not three. not four. not five. not six. not seven. >> reporter: not three. not four. not five. you will never hear the end of that. have you ever -- you got two now. >> right. >> reporter: have you ever regretted those words? >> absolutely not. being part of this organization, being part of that day, it was for the fans. it was for our fans. let them know that we're here to win multiple championships. so, i've never regretted that. i think the best thing about being a part of this team is
7:44 am

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested.
8:10 am
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 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.
8:11 am
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 ♪ [ male announcer ] keep your lawn looking great with a troy-bilt 2 cycle trimmer for just $99 at lowe's. ♪ we're headed the same way, right? yeah. ♪ [ panting ]
