7:01 am
panda-monium starts this morning, only on "gma." and good morning, america. take a look at that count right there. we're on day three of the government shutdown. no closer to a solution. so many daily activities being affected, from cashing a check to taking out a mortgage. we're also seeing potentially dangerous consequences like cutbacks and clinical trials for cancer patients. >> that, we are. and we showed you this astonishing picture on wednesday. remember sam's reaction. we showed you in the newscast yesterday. a nail right through a man's heart. how he survived. we're going to hear from him this morning. every time we see that. >> it's a good story. it's a happy story.
7:02 am
>> yeah. yeah. we're going to begin with the weather and the two major storms brewing at this hour. i know you're tracking for us. >> so much happening. we need to talk tropical systems, a snowmaker and thunderstorms as well. we'll start in the tropics. miami i'll start with these pictures. not that this storm is for you. overnight you were involved in some of the rain loosely involved in the tropical system. the reason i want to show she's pictures this is 6 to 8 inches of rain in southwestern dade. this is the kind of rain we're talking about for the gulf coast by the time we get to the weekend. this is that tropical storm. this is karen. you're looking at it now in the yucatan peninsula. and the edge of cuba. skirts all of that. leaves most of the peninsula alone. it's the i.d. here. let me show you spaghetti models, all the models, forecast models put in one graphic. that's why we call it spaghetti.
7:03 am
follow the pink which is the center. we believe it will be a cat 1 someplace in the gulf here. it will make landfall well east of new orleans. probably some place in the mobile area, in whatever form it is, it means it's a lot of heavy rain. that continues up the east coast for the first part of next week. because it's getting squeezed by a very powerful cold front. we're looking anywhere from 45 to 67 inches of rain. a big rainfall their. there's more rainfall in the east coast. behind that. there's a driving force of cold air. we'll talk who gets snow a little later. we have so much weather to watch. let's get to the desk and give you the forecast in a minute. robin and george. the latest of the government shutdown. three days in, the consequences are spreading across the country. but neither side in washington is budging yet. jonathan karl covering it from the white house. jon, the president called
7:04 am
congressional leaders at the white house last night, but not much seemed to happen. >> reporter: that's right, george. day three. the president had that meeting. but there's no end in sight. even after spending over an hour talking with the president in the oval office, speaker of the house john boehner, simply, the president refused to negotiate. >> the president reiterated one more time tonight that he will not negotiate. i would hope that the president and my democrat colleagues in the senate would listen to the american people and sit down and have a serious discussion about resolving these differences. >> reporter: a few minutes later, democratic leaders emerged from the same meeting with a different view. >> i can only conclude that they wanted to shut down the government. >> reporter: the president has insisted he will not negotiate on the affordable care act or anything else, until republicans agree to reopen the government and raise the so-called debt ceiling, allowing the government to borrow more money. if that doesn't happen by october 17th, on top of being shut down, the u.s. government would face its first-ever default, with catastrophic economic consequences.
7:05 am
how real is the danger that the country may default? >> i think that it looks like these people are headed where they want to go. >> reporter: shortly before the meeting, president obama suggested unreasonable republican demands have left him at wit's end. >> am i exasperated? absolutely i'm exasperated because this is entirely unnecessary. >> reporter: speaker of the house john boehner tried to revive the idea of a so-called grand bargain. a big budget deal on taxes and spending to reduce the deficit. but the president's answer was firm. no negotiations on anything until congress reopens the government and removes that threat of default. >> jon, it seems like more and more people are resigned to the idea that the stalemate is going to continue. maybe the full two weeks until we hit the deadline on default. >> reporter: that's the growing view here. if you can imagine this, no meetings scheduled here. that one didn't go well last night. no need for further meetings, the view is. and congress is planning to go home over the weekend. >> likely to get an earful.
7:06 am
thanks very much. >> we continue to feel the ripple effects. the longer it takes. now, to the impact the shutdown could have on homeland security. the nation's top intelligence official raising the red flag, saying intelligence workers are among the federal workers out of the job right now. and the risks from that are real. pierre thomas with that story. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right. that top intelligence official had a blunt warning. this shutdown is about more than politics. it may be making us all less safe. here's what james clapper, the director of national intelligence, told congress. >> this seriously damages our ability to protect the safety and security of this nation and its citizens. i've been in the intelligence business for about 50 years. i've never seen anything like this. >> clapper went on to talk about the civilians that are out. 70% of the staff. this is real here, pierre.
7:07 am
>> reporter: sources tell me there's so many people out of the office that there's real concern that critical analysis will be slowed down. the question is, can a smaller intelligence workforce keep pace with the mountain of intelligence that's always coming in. is there some file that could be critical that they might not get to? that's the question, robin. >> this goes beyond politics right now. pierre, thank you very much. i know you're staying on top of it. we're going to turn to josh with the rest of the morning top stories. good morning, josh. >> we're going to begin with the breaking news we showed you. tragedy at sea. dozens of people are dead and hundreds more are feared dead, after a migrant boat sank off the coast of italy. abc's lama hasan joins us now. lama, what do you know? >> reporter: good morning, josh. here's what we know so far. 92 people are dead. at least 94 people of dead and hundreds are still missing. and officials warn that the death toll is likely going to rise. here's what happened. overnight, a ship packed with 500 people, including women and children, were forcedly first capsizing and then catching on
7:08 am
fire. one theory is, after the vessel was running into trouble, they used flares to call for help. that may have caused the fire to break out, forcing the passengers to jump overboard into the sea for safety. at this hour, coast guard, police, helicopters and patrol boats are on the scene, searching for any survivors and victims. hundreds of migrants seeking asylum make this trip to italy from africa and the middle east every year. the vessels are often overcrowded. but this, by far, is the deadliest accident this year. josh? >> something must be done. lama hasan, thanks for that. southwest has fired the captain of the plane that landed so hard in new york's la guardia airport in july that its nose gear collapsed. we're showing you video of that landing. they say the captain suddenly took control from the first officer, a mere 400 feet from the ground. and again, landed nose-first, injuring 16 people in the process. and new questions this morning about the safety of electric cars after the $70,000
7:09 am
tesla, touted as the world's safest car, did this. erupted in flames near seattle. the company says a large metallic object struck the battery, sparked that fire that later re-ignited. tesla's stock has fallen since the video surfaced. overnight, we learned about a new leak of radioactive water at japan's crippled nuclear power plant. it's the second leak into the pacific ocean in less than two months. officials say there was no gauge on the leaking water tank to even warn of the danger. and finally, forget about the dog eating your homework. how about this? a golden retriever in montana ate her owner's cash. five $100 bills gone. take a look. that check in her mouth, a government check. because, get this. the owner's smart enough to wait for her to pass the bill she chewed. he cleaned them, sent them to the u.s. treasury, treasury sent him a check for the $500.
7:10 am
>> he's letting the dog hold the check in his mouth. >> again -- some folks have not learned. >> history repeats itself. for all you kids, by the way, paper is not consumed. it cannot be digested. a dog can't ever really eat your homework, just so we're clear. >> oh, interesting. josh elliott -- >> i'm now the enemy of kids everywhere. >> so glad we got take away from that story. thanks. we're going to turn to the deadly accident in tennessee, where a church bus collided with a tractor-trailer and an suv. a fiery crash that has killed eight people. abc's steve osunsami has the story. >> reporter: witnesses say the impact looked and sounded like a fireball that they could see for miles. >> we do have confirmed fatalities at the scene. >> reporter: eight people lost their lives on this highway east of knoxville. and 12 had to be rushed to area hospitals. many of them, still being treated this morning. police say the charter bus carrying a church group of
7:11 am
senior citizens was on the way home from a jubilee when the left front tire blew and the bus lost control. it swerved over the median and directly into oncoming traffic on the other side of the highway. first striking a white tahoe. and then slamming into the side of a tractor-trailer that burst into flames. >> it's the first time i've seen that ever bothered me this bad. and i've seen them all. so, i've cried. i've been here since 2:00 and i've cried. and i'll cry again. >> reporter: 18 seniors on that bus and 6 are gone. so, is the driver of the tractor-trailer and one of the three people in that suv. the highway was closed for several hours. but this morning, traffic is flowing on interstate 40. for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> our thoughts are with all of the families that were affected. now, to the verdict in the michael jackson wrongful death lawsuit. the jackson family sued concert
7:12 am
promoter aeg live, claiming that the group was responsible for the superstar's death. but the jury did not see it that way. abc's david wright has more. >> reporter: after five months and more than 50 witnesses, a verdict. >> did aeg live hire dr. conrad murray? answer, yes. was dr. conrad murray unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired? answer, no. >> reporter: a verdict in favor of aeg live. the jury rejecting the jackson family's claim that the concert promoter was somehow responsible for the king of pop's death. >> it's been an exhausting five months. and it's been an extremely stressful last three or four days. >> reporter: michael jackson's mother and three children had sought $1.5 billion in damages against aeg live. they said in the run-up to the this is it tour, the promoter hired dr. conrad murray, the doctor who administered jackson the fatal dose of propofol.
7:13 am
>> we, the jury, find the defendant, conrad robert murray, guilty. >> reporter: that doctor is behind bars, convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a separate criminal case. and although this jury accepted that aeg hired murray, the jurors ruled murray had been fit for the job. in other words, it wasn't aeg's fault. >> how can aeg have done anything about it when they were kept in the dark? >> it's easy to paint a picture of a faceless corporation. but these are people that are being blamed for something that wasn't their doing. >> reporter: jackson's lawyers are hinting at an appeal. >> we'll be exploring all options legally. and factually. >> reporter: perhaps not the last jackson trial after all. for "good morning america," david wright, abc news, los angeles. >> thanks to david for that. now, the latest on that wild confrontation between a motorcycle gang and a father driving his family in an suv. this morning, one of the bikers has been charged. police are searching for a second. and a third biker is speaking out. abc's linzie janis is tracking all of it.
7:14 am
>> reporter: in deed, george. just? the last few minute, abc news has learned police have found and questioned the biker behind the helmet cam video police want to see all of the raw footage, not just what was posted online. also this morning, police say they are searching for one man in particular. overnight, the nypd released these new photos in hopes of finding one of the prime suspects in the now infamous road rage incident, pitting dozens of motorcyclists against a family in an suv. that biker seen here smashing the window of the suv with his helmet is at the center of this manhunt. that means 28-year-old christopher cruz is now the only motorcyclist charged in the incident so far. he was in court wednesday, accused of reckless driving after he cut lien off and caused a fender-bender. police say it was the single event that caused the rest of that terrifying encounter. cruz's lawyers say he is innocent. >> the video doesn't show
7:15 am
everything that happened before. i wouldn't classify it as a deliberate effort to block the car. >> reporter: also this morning, we're hearing from one of the bikers on that ride who says driver 33-year-old alexian lien did something unforgivable. in a panic, he peeled off, leaving 32-year-old father of two, edwin miese, paralyzed. >> i think it's messed up. if you hit someone, the proper thing to do is pull over, and exchange paperwork. and, you know, wait for the cops. but to pull off and run over people in the process is not really right. >> reporter: overnight, protesters gathered outside the hospital where miese is being treated. diamonding lien be held accountable. also, this just in moments ago. a statement from the wife of lien. our sympathies go out to the injured motorcyclist however we were forced with the dangerous situation and we had to protect
7:16 am

7:17 am
sinking, carmen rushed her husband to the hospital. >> he felt gurgling and crunching in his chest. >> reporter: this morning, doctors say just where the nail hit rakow is most likely what saved his life. >> the nail caught on the sternum just like the sternum was a two by four. that really prevented the nail from going in any deeper. >> reporter: this cross section x-ray shows how deep into his heart the nail went. just two millimeters away from the coronary artery. amazingly, surgeons were able to remove the long spike and sew two stitches directly on his heart. >> i told him and his family, if i were you, i'd play the lottery tonight. >> reporter: rakow says he knows he's lucky. but instead of playing the lottery, he said his goal now is to learn to his work as a carpenter. >> if it wasn't for god's protective hand, i would have been done. >> reporter: a second shot at life after a shot to the heart he'll never forget. for "good morning america," alex perez, abc news, chicago. >> you heard him. he knows how blessed he is. that's right.

7:34 am
sophisticated criminal marketplace on the internet. thousands of drug dealers used it to sell drugs and completely hide their identities. this morning, the fbi says that 29-year-old seemingly clean-cut entrepreneur was living a secret life as a digital drug lord operating an online black market bazaar, called silk road. here's an online commercial. now, ross ulbricht is in federal custody. arrested tuesday. and the site he allegedly ran, shut down after a two-year undercover operation. >> a sophisticated individual who took the skills and the talents and developed an online website that marketed illegal goods and services. >> reporter: just look at some of the 13,000 items offered through that underground site. ultraclean cocaine. clean and real lsd.
7:35 am
high-grade mdma, also known as molly. all with fast and free shipping. court documents say silk road sold $1.2 billion worth of drugs and illegal services in just under three years. >> they were comfortable operating in that environment because they felt that they enjoyed complete anonymity. >> reporter: investigators say the penn state graduate tried hiding his identity on silk road with the user name dread pirate roberts. just like in the movie "the princess bride." >> you're the bred pirate roberts, admit it. >> reporter: it seems one silk road user threatened to reveal the identities of thousands of others. investigators say ulbricht tried to execute a murder-for-hire on that user, offering $150,000 to a would-be hitman because, quote, this kind of behavior is unforgivable to me, especially here on silk road. anonymity is sacrosanct.
7:36 am
>> just because silk road is shut down doesn't mean the concept will go away easily. the operator made $80 million in fees. that's a huge incentive. >> reporter: $80 million. ulbricht's attorney, a public defender, has not returned our called for comment. investigators say his key mistake, he allegedly used his personal e-mail address for nearly all silk road communications, george. >> thanks very much. let's talk to dan abrams about this, our chief legal affairs anchor. i'm amazed that a website like this could stay up for so long. >> it's accessed through a special network on the internet, which allowed users to immediately encrypts, masks who they are. so, you can't identify what their i.p. address is. and the payment system is through bitcoin, which is digital currency. not backed up by international banks. not backed up by u.s. banks. but simply based on the confidence of the users who exchange these bitcoins computer
7:37 am
to computer. >> the fbi's case is based on the idea if they can show that dread pirate roberts is ross ulbricht? >> can they link -- he was trying to hide his identity on the site, as well. so, the first thing they're going to have to do is definitively link him as the person who runs the site. and typically when you're talking about a website, people would say, if people are exchanging information and they're dealing drugs, it's not our responsibility. we just put up the site. the problem is, in this site, they're taking commissions. and you have a beautiful site. looks like amazon in the sense that it's got all the different kinds of drugs that are for sale up there. it will be very difficult to claim, we didn't know about what was happening on the site. >> we heard at the end of the piece, this is not going away. >> no. this is -- this is going to be the biggest takedown of what is currently in existence. and you're now going to see them on warning. and you're going to see a bunch
