7:01 am
the path she is expected to take and how close she could get to an already struggling puerto rico. caught on camera, pool dispute. the new details involving this confrontation. >> i'm just here with my baby swimming. >> the phone call made to police. >> we have a nonresident that refuses to leave. >> why he says this is not a case of racial profiling. and ace of a mom. serena williams' smashing performance on and off the court. >> mommy needs you to help put this back in. >> the video she's sharing as she juggles being a mom and a centre court champion. thseth mnimpion. what's going on? >> i love it.
7:02 am
what's better than one weatherman, two. >> stereo weathermen. here's what's going on. adrienne is over in asia. she's on her way to thailand, so she can't do "pop news" this morning. somehow bribery was involved, maybe an offer of free coffee but we somehow got sam champion to do "pop news." >> it is the free coffee. >> really. he's also going to fact check all of rob's weather. >> i have a pen ready, rob. go at any time. >> great to have you, sam. inevitably we have a great morning coming up but we do want to start here with the breaking news out of thailand. abc news has learned that authorities on the ground, they may start attempting to bring those 12 boys and their soccer coach out of the cave as soon as tonight because rain is coming. >> we just want to give you a sense of how risky and how ke a l the map igotobe. thboree miles inside the cave. a one-way trip takes six hours for a professional diver and the boys don't even know how to swim. >> now, ahead of this high-stakes escape, we are hearing this morning directly
7:03 am
from the boys and their coach, all of whom released personal letter, as you can see, to their families. the coach profusely apologizing for leading the boys into that cave. >> he is, indeed. we begin our coverage this morning with abc's matt gutman who is right there in chiang rai. matt, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, dan and paula. this rescue has tumbled from one crisis to the next. now, it's still possible that they could extract those boys sometime very soon, but just now we heard from the head of operations here at this base camp who said that the oxygen levels in that cave are dipping dangerously low. so what they've done is start to pull back a lot of the rescuers to minimize the number of people inside. what they've got to do is pump up the level of oxygen in there and fight what they're calling the war on water. the missioto t could begin within 24 hours according to an internal u.s. government report obtained by abc news.
7:04 am
a buddy dive. essentially hauled by divers through tunnels sometimes only as wide as a manhole cover. >> we're trying to set a plan, the best plan, we can bring them out and if the risks are minimum maybe we try. >> reporter: over the past several days, divers and rescuers have amassed hundreds of air tanks along the route. british divers have been teaching the boys how to dive and some of the basics of swimming. authorities have drilled over 100 holes into the mountain both to find an alternate rout out for the boys and to create a second outflow of water in that three-mile-long cave. and this morning for the first time letters emerging from three miles deep. the boys writing home. the letters ferried out by divers. the boys ask for fried chicken and barbecued pork. others ask that they not get too much homework when they get out. 13-year-old dom wrote, i'm fine but it's a little bit cold.
7:05 am
don't worry and don't forget my birthday. some said they want to go home now and, heartbreakingly, 14-year-old bu whose school we visited just last week said, mum and dad, don't worry that i'm missing for two weeks, i will help you at the shop soon. their coach also writing sending love to his family and apologies to the families of the boys writing and i promise i will take care of the kids. thank you for your support and i would like to say that i am really sorry to you all. so this here is a practice field that the team used to play on. in fact, it's the place they set out from to go to that cave. now it's a landing pad for rescue helicopters. and it was in that field overnight that we met the team's head coach who told us he was never informed that his assistant coach known as coach "a" had ever taken the kids to that cave. [ speaking a foreign language ] the head coach told me he didn't know that his assistant went inside that cave with the kids.
7:06 am
i'm being told that expert rescue divers are converging here for that final push from all over the world and just minutes ago, dan and paula, i spoke to the tourism minister here who said that he himself had tested out a 30-meter-long, 100-foot-long inflatable tube th having to swim or learn how to dive, of course, that's only 30 meters and that is very similar to what elon musk has floated, an idea just like it. he is sending two of his technicians over here to try to figure out maybe alternate ways of rescuing those boys. dan and paula. >> so many people getting involved in this rescue effort. that is one encouraging part here. matt, thank you very much. matt gutman in chiang rai. so, let's bring in navy s.e.a.l. and former deputy of u.s. central command, abc news contributor, admiral robert harward. he is joining us from san diego. admiral, good morning. so, this proposed rescue involves what they're calling a buddy dive. how does that work? >> that means the guy who will be with him supporting him will have hands on him and they'll
7:07 am
be going together so he'll have a swim buddy. a guy who is focused on keeping him safe for the journey, and there may be multiple -- there may be handoffs along the lines but you can guarantee someone will have their hands on those boys every step of the way so these boys are ages 11 to 16. some of them, admiral, can't swim. so, how does that change the extraction plan? >> that's not really relevant with a swim buddy, a guy who's got his hands, they may even give him a flotation device, but once you're in the water, the buoyancy gives the swim buddy, a guy who is an experienced diver with hands on him to help him navigate and keep him afloat and make sure he makes it safely outside the cave so they'll be hands on the whole way. >> thanks for joining us. we appreciate it. we want to turn out west, firefighters are battling a massive wildfire that erupted near san diego and on top of that they're dealing with tough weather conditions. >> yeah, they're looking at
7:08 am
heavy winds, high heat and low humidity. abc's will carr is in alpine, california, where homes are being evacuated and one firefighter has already been hurt. will, good morning to you. wee t results of these perfect fire conditions. the home behind me still smoldering and you can see this garage burned to the ground of the you can still smell that thick, putrid smoke in the air then and check out the skeleton of this truck. this fire burning so hot it melted the aluminum off these wheels. this is all a visual reminder of what can happen while these fires continue to burn. this morning, the west on fire. the latest exploding overnight near santa barbara, california. the holiday fire triggering mandatory evacuations for up to 2500 people. over 100 firefighters and 30 fire engines descending on the scene. 20 homes and buildings destroyed turning this neighborhood into a
7:09 am
terrifying inferno. >> you need to evacuate. the fire is very close. >> reporter: residents ripped from their beds with plumes of smoke filling the air. police scrambling to clear the area and firefighters snaking their trucks up the neighborhood's tight canyon roads. the fire consuming home after home, still raging out of control. in arizona, this dairy farm's hay bales ablaze burning long into the night even after 120 firefighters rushed to the scene. the west fires sparking just outside of san diego devouring hundreds of acres in just a few hours. the fire torching homes incinerating cars creating a post-apocalyptic landscape. flames pushing dangerously close to an interstate while knocking out power for thousands as temperatures jumped higher than 110 degrees. firefighters braving the heat racing into those neighborhoods through thick smoke, battling the fire jumping from one home to the next. one firefighter injured trying to contain the inferno.
7:10 am
some residents fleeing to safety. others ignoring evacuation orders. >> police wouldn't let me get close but i kind of hiked through some backyards and whatnot. i'm going to try to stay and defend the house. >> reporter: in northern california, another fire turning deadly. a body found in a home burned to the ground. and just east of los angeles, helicopters and planes swooping in to smother a fire that started when a truck burst into flames on a freeway. it only takes one spark to start that next fire, and more bad news, there are excessive heat warnings for the region throughout the rest of the weekend. dan and paula. >> will, thank you, and i want to pick up on that point we're heading into another hard day on the front lines of these fires with temperatures potentially hitting near record highs in southern california. >> let's turn to rob for more plus a hurricane that could impact puerto rico. rob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, hello, dan. yeah, we've got some serious heat, in some cases all-time records shattered.
7:11 am
look at some of these numbers. riverside, california, 118, van nuys airport, 117. that's approaching the temperature where some commercial airlines cannot fly and we've got 36 large uncontained fires burning across 11 states underneath what is essentially a heat dome and centered across parts of the southwest we'll see those excessive heat warnings today again, 102 in los angeles. we're starting to see a bit of a sea breeze that will pick up tomorrow. inland areas where fires are burning, it is dangerously hot and dangerously dry. we also have a hurricane in the atlantic and this as we still are reeling from hurricane maria. puerto rico, well documented struggles in this last nine and ten months, this is not what they want to see and not the only island that will deal with this. beryl is a small hurricane. 75-mile-an-hour one with about 800 miles to go before it hits the caribbean, but dominica which got crushed by maria and martinique and guadeloupe are all in the path as is puerto rico potentially as we go sunday into monday. we're also watching tropical depression number three but clearly in the caribbean a fragile situation. paula and dan. >> certainly is.
7:12 am
will be a tough pill to swallow for puerto rico. we'll keep our eye on that as well. thanks, rob. to politics now. a new report this morning saying the president's lawyers are setting tough new conditions for an interview with special counsel robert mueller. >> that interview looking less and less likely this morning, and this comes as the white house is dealing with growing pressure on another front, a court-imposed deadline for reuniting parents and children separated at the southern border. abc's david wright is outside bedminster, new jersey, where the president is spending the weekend. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan and paula. the trump administration is scrambling to comply with a federal court order to reunite without delay the thousands of children who were forcibly separated from their parents at the border. children under 5 are supposed to be back with their parents by tuesday. tearful reunions like this one should be the norm. [ speaking a foreign language ]
7:13 am
this mother last saw her daughter on mother's day nearly two months ago after they crossed the arizona border seeking asylum. their tearful reunion captured by cnn. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: but for more than 100 separated children under age 5, the trump administration is now asking the federal courts for more time. among them 16 children who have not been matched to their parents and as many as 19 others whose parents have been released from custody, their current whereabouts unknown. the government's lawyer told a federal judge in some cases it needs more time to make sure it complies with protections against child trafficking. the court reconvenes monday morning to consider the matter. this issue has brought the department of immigration and customs enforcement under sharp scrutiny. some democrats accuse i.c.e. of causing a humanitarian crisis. >> the president's deeply
7:14 am
immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom. >> reporter: the administration is pushing back hard on that. >> under president donald trump we will never abolish i.c.e. >> we want tough, strong, powerful borders, and we want no crime, and we're going to protect i.c.e. we protect i.c.e. they protect us, and we protect them. >> reporter: the trump administration says every child under 5 whose parents are in custody have been put in contact by video chat, but there are plenty of cases where the parents are no longer in custody. they may even have been deported and the government's lawyer raised some eyebrows in court yesterday when he said that he had to go out of town to fulfill some dog sitting responsibilities, that even as all these children remain in legal limbo. dan and paula. >> that's a curious decision right there. let's talk about the russia
7:15 am
investigation just for a moment. "the new york times" as we mentioned earlier is reporting that rudy giuliani has told the special counsel robert mueller that the president will only speak to mueller under certain circumstances. so what can you tell us about that, david? >> reporter: well, according to that report in "the times," they're saying that they want probable cause. they want mueller to show that he has some sort of evidence that trump may have committed a crime before the president agrees to sit down for an interview. now, that's a condition that giuliani himself admits that mueller is unlikely to agree to and this is a change. the president has long said that he is perfectly willing to sit down with the special counsel and his investigators, however, in recent months they've taken a harder line shifting from cooperation to confrontation, dan and paula. >> indeed, they have. lots to discuss this morning so let's bring in -- david, thank you. let's bring in abc news political commentator, cokie roberts who is in washington this morning. cokie, good morning. >> good morning. >> on the mueller investigation here, does it look like the white house is on track to just never agreeing to an interview
7:16 am
and if that's the case, what options does mueller have? >> well, he can subpoena the president and then the president can go to court to fight the subpoena and it could be a constitutional crisis. i think that what we're seeing here is a public relations ploy which has been going on now for months. the president almost daily tweets something about the witch-hunt and he is succeeding in driving down public opinion, his favorability toward mueller, it's dropped by about 14 points in some polls of people saying that they now disapprove of the mueller investigation rather than approve of it, and that's the president's whole point is to just make people think that whatever mueller comes up with, it's not true. it's fake news, all of that, and he's succeeding. >> that strategy seems to be working. let's talk about the supreme court pick. trump is reportedly meeting with vice president pence this weekend in bedminster
7:17 am
taking calls from top senators as he finalizes his scotus pick which he will be announcing monday night. how much input is he taking going into this momentous decision? >> i think he's taking a lot input from people that he likes. and one of the white house aides was quoted as saying, it's going to be a heck of a weekend because the president is going to change his mind 20 times during the course of the weekend and that's really the crux of it. he's made a statement that he's going to make this announcement monday night at 9:00 p.m. so whoever is last man standing at that moment is likely to be the supreme court nominee. >> yeah, last man or woman standing. >> or woman. >> a couple of women that are being considered. cokie, thank you so much for your analysis and your insight on a saturday morning. we appreciate it. >> good to be with you. >> and the stakes are incredibly high. this is a consequential decision to say the least. cokie, thank you again. let's check the weather yet again, go back to rob marciano. no pressure, sam champion is here watching your every move. >> sam is right here. >> boring eyes right now crushing me, sam, with his red pen. good to have you on the desk, my friend.
7:18 am
we have a lot of heat and humidity across the east this past weekend. they got hammered with heavy rain across atlanta yesterday and some swift water rescue teams were out there. the atlanta fire department rescuing some folks who needed that in some of their cars. this front which gave us the cooler air across the northeast is squeezing some of that moisture down across the southeast. temperatures in some cases 20 to 25 degrees cooler than they were yesterday. now, this is tropical depression number 3 just off the coast by about 200 miles of north carolina so we're uncomfortably close to the u.s., no doubt about that and it is forecast to become a hurricane. but at this point forecast to stay offshore. it is going to bring in rip currents, so folks going to the beaches across the carolinas and across the delmarva, be careful. that is going to be a nice beach day actually away from the coast as well with that cooler air across the northeast.
7:19 am
temperatures in the low 60s for low areas and 50s around the bay and coast. things are warming up quickly and we'll have lots of sunshine by the afternoon and it will be mild to hot. look for inland areas to be in the mid-90s around the bay, and mid-80s and at the coast still cool with the sea and there's no greater news authority on set to bore his eyes through ron claiborne as you deliver your newscast. >> yes. he just handed the baton to you. >> is that a compliment? i'm not sure. >> it was a compliment. >> sam gave you a "c" plus, by the way. >> that's how i got through college. no problem. >> just getting by. good morning, rob. >> good morning, everyone. we're going to begin in delaware where five members of a new jersey family including four children were killed in a horrific car crash there. police say it happened when a truck veered across a median and onto oncoming traffic on route 1 in delaware. that truck clipped a car before hitting that family's minivan. one adult in the minivan
7:20 am
survived with serious injuries. investigators want to know what caused that truck to cross the median. north korean foreign ministry is call the talks with u.s. state department officials regrettable and is accusing the u.s. of making unilateral declares for nuclearization. mike pompeo and the american delegation were working to nail down specifics on the north's commitment to dismanltsle its nuclear weapons program. the state department says progress was being made. we have breaking news in new jersey. an explosion leveling a home in newfield. getting new images of the folky aftermath. that littered with debris and they're combing through the wreckage working to pinpoint what caused the blast. we have learned that people were inside of that home when the explosion happened. no word yet though on any injuries. in south carolina, congressional candidate katie arrington speaking public for the first time since being badly injured in a car crash two weeks ago. arrington, a republican running for a house seat in charleston suffered a spinal fracture and has undergone multiple
7:21 am
surgeries. the driver of that car that she was in was killed in that crash. >> every single thing i've ever done has been about surviving. there's no other option. it just makes me stronger. >> arrington has been released from the hospital. she's expected to make a full recovery. but still not known when she will be able to resume campaigning. and finally near kansas city, missouri, an art gallery where you are the main attraction. check it out. it's a selfie boutique in the town of leawood. the space allows you to snap your best angles or worst angles with a variety of vivid backdrops and colorful rooms. all you need is your imagination. >> and a little narcissism. just a little narcissism. >> a cell phone or some narcissism or some -- >> the reversible camera has unleashed a bottomless well. >> it has. >> paula has never taken a selfie for the record. >> i've taken a couple. >> rare. rare selfies. thank you, ron. appreciate it. >> thank you, ron.

7:31 am
the social media network's ceo clocks in at $81.6 billion so this puts zuckerberg behind amazon's jeff bezos and microsoft founder bill gates and a notch above warren buffett. for the first time the three richest people in the world are tech titans. by the way, did you get that all cleaned up? >> such a pleasure having sam champion on the show. right before we went on the air he spilled a whole glass of water right -- yeah. >> just knocked it right across. >> it's also -- you can see my here are all drenching. >> we forgive you, though. i enjoyed it, by the way. >> i have not forgiven you yet. >> dan is not going to forgive me. >> it's going to take a while. i'm going to ride this horse for awhile. make sam suffer, one of my favorite things to do. always happy when sam is here. and coming up this morning, we have some new video surfacing. five years, remember this, this ve years after the asiana flight crash, flight 214, that happened in san francisco five
7:32 am
the first responders as well as some mistakes they made. so new video, new questions coming up. but we're going to first start here this half hour with another update or with a new update on another racially tinged confrontation caught on camera and going viral. the man who called police on a black woman he suspected did not belong at the community pool. >> now she calls it a case of racial profiling and now we're learning what his lawyer has to say about it all. abc's zachary kiesch joins us with all the details. zachary, good morning. >> reporter: dan and paula, good morning. you're right. i feel like we've been here that call to police over pool access has been released and now the attorney for the guy at the center of this whole thing is saying his client is getting death threats and had to move his family from their home for safety. this morning, the man at the center of this pool confrontation now gone viral out of a job as police reveal more about how it all went down. >> where does it say that i have to show an i.d. to use my pool, my own pool? >> reporter: this is adam bloom confronting jasmine edwards and her son. the mom and son hoping to enjoy their private community pool in north carolina on the fourth of
7:33 am
july just like everyone else. but bloom has serious questions over whether they should be there. >> i'm just here with my baby swimming. >> and i understand. >> reporter: things escalate quickly when bloom, pool chairman for the homeowners association, calls police. >> we have a nonresident that refuses to leave. we'd be happy to have her here if she just shows some identification. >> reporter: i.d.s aren't required for the pool. miss edwards says she was targeted because of her race. >> i feel this is racial profiling. >> reporter: but bloom's lawyer says the video is incomplete and misleading. bloom approached edwards at the request of another resident and that bloom is deeply regretful if his enforcement of the rules appeared to be racially motivated. what the video does prove is that edwards is a resident. >> prove to this gentleman that this turns green real quick. it turns green, and it unlocks. there you go, sir. >> all right, perfect. >> do you want adam, for what you did? >> reporter: this just the latest incident showing white people calling the cops on black
7:34 am
folks for doing everyday things. here a woman called police on a young girl for selling water. and in this video a woman called police on a group having a cookout. back in north carolina bloom lost his day job and resigned from his post with the hoa. dan, i feel like we're having these conversations week in and week out. >> we do talk about this quite a bit. >> it's challenging to confront this issue of race in this country, and if you look at this particular issue in terms of swimming pools, a long legacy of that in this country, a little research will show that the fight to keep pools segregated was even stronger than that for public schools in some cases, so, you know, this is nothing new on some level. >> such a painful topic. zachary, we appreciate it. thank you very much. >> thank you. let's check the weather yet again and get it back to rob marciano. rob, good morning. >> good morning. guys, a quick update on the tropics. we've got tropical depression three off the carolina coast again. it should stay off that but certainly going to bring waves. hurricane beryl now about 800 miles off the coast of the caribbean or away from the
7:35 am
caribbean heading in that direction, and we're talking about islands that got hammered real bad, not even close to fully recovered from hurricane maria, dominica, st. lucia and certainly martinique, guadalupe and then puerto rico just to the south is where that hurricane is supposed to track, but it's a small hurricane. hopefully it stays that way. small hurricanes are notoriously difficult to forecast intensitywise. so we're watching this carefully. across the rest of the u.s. today we're looking at showers and storms across the southeast, should be nice across the northeast, but the dangerous heat wave continues across the southwest. this weather report is sponsored by carmax. "b" minus, sam? please, i begged all my
7:36 am
professors for a "b" minus. >> i think it's an "a." >> he does not get to give grades at this point because he spilled water all over me. >> your soggy scripts. >> everything is wet here. it's like -- >> we actually paid sam to do that just to -- >> i can't even sit down anymore so you're way ahead, rob. >> you're fine. you needed a bath. >> next step, dunk tank. >> great idea. >> dan can carry a grudge a long way. >> yeah, you still owe me 20 bucks. >> exactly. coming up on the show actually we have a really serious and intriguing story because five years after the crash of this asiana jet in san francisco, the new video we're now seeing from first responders revealing their hazards and some mistakes. and then mom, the tennis champ, serena williams shares what goes on in her locker room these days and it's adorable. that's ahead with samuel champion. >> it's adorable. >> everyone can look at that and say it's adorable. nd say it's adorable.
