7:09 am
further action by the mental health officials, the police or courts. illinois has among the most strict gun laws in the nation but those laws require someone to enter an incident into the system and that apparently did not happen. it's clear when he went to buy those alleged weapons, no red flags flashed. >> pierre, this new bipartisan gun bill that president biden just signed into law wouldn't have made a difference either? >> reporter: no, because if the red flags did not stop him from buying guns, what will? the flags that happened here fell through the cracks, plain and simple. george? >> pierre thomas, thanks very much. t.j.? we turn to the latest in the war in ukraine. advanced weapons arriving on the battlefield and possibly already making a difference in the fight against russian forces. our foreign correspondent james longman is on the seen in ukraine. james, good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, t.j. the fight for the east of ukraine is all about hitting targets at a distance, himars these are long-range weapons provided by the united states, are now here in the fight.
7:10 am
first to be able to see these weapons being deployed. this morning, a special inside look at the new u.s. weapons now arriving in ukraine. >> himars are some of their most highly valued weapons. they're terrified of the russians finding out where they are. in the wide open spaces of this country ukrainian forces used these woods for cover. these are the rockets being loaded on to the u.s. himars high artillery rocket systems, the weapons that ukraine says it making all the difference in the war for the reason they fly further than anything ukraine has in its artillery. the other important detail is that they're truck mounted which means once they're fired these guys can move. [speaking foreign language] we can use them to find targets that no other weapon can get to this himars commander tells me. we hit ammunition stores. this as video circulating online shows a massive explosion at a russian ammunition depot in donetsk. ukrainian officials say they struck it on sunday.
7:11 am
russian officials say u.s. provided himars used in this attack part of the battle for the donbas where russian forces have claimed control of luhansk. the fighting there fierce as ukrainian forces try to fend off russia as it looks to take the rest of the donbas. key ukrainian-held cities in the region coming under attack. russian missiles destroying a local market. kremenchuk facing intense shelling as russian forces move in. as you heard there vladimir putin has taken luhansk, one-half of the donbas region, and now has donetsk in his sights and the ukrainians will be hoping these himars weapons will be able to better defend that region. robin? >> that is the hope, james, thank you. we turn to good news at the gas pump. prices are finally starting to fall. americans hitting the road have seen a steady decline. but how long will the price break last? our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis joins us with more. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, robin. and that is the question on
7:12 am
people's minds after these 21 days where we've now seen prices fall. the national average this morning $4.77, down about 9 cents over the last week. if you look across the country, about 80% of the stations are now below $5 a gallon. this is all because prices of oil have also come down. now below $100 a battle. we've seen that demand really destroyed. people choose to drive less when they see prices where they are and that's exactly what we've seen and it's not just oil prices that are lower but commodities. cotton, copper, lumber, they are all decreasing. that lumber, by the way, if you're trying to build a house much better deals on lumber prices so good news for you there as well. however, the issue is this question of whether or not we're facing a slowdown or a recession and, robin, that's part of what's also hitting prices here. if we have a recession, if we move in that direction you're also going to see oil prices likely fall as well.
7:13 am
>> that will be likely. but for people, rebecca, who are trying to figure out if they should maybe fill up today or wait until the weekend in case prices drop even more, what are you hearing? >> reporter: so, gas buddy tells us this morning, robin, that prices should fall in the coming weeks between 40 and 65 cents but there are certain days of the week where you want to fill up for the best deal. the best day of the week, according to gus buddy, monday. second best, sunday. when you don't want to fill up, wednesday and thursday. that's when it gets more expensive. >> we will definitely keep all of that in mind, rebecca. thank you. george? we get the latest on the investigation into former president trump's attempts to overturn the election in georgia. seven of his allies have now been subpoenaed including rudy giuliani and senator lindsey graham. rachel scott is tracking the case. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. this is a significant step in the criminal investigation. that special grand jury in georgia is moving closer to the former president issuing a new round of subpoenas to some of his closest allies including
7:14 am
lawyers rudy giuliani and john eastman who pedalled trump's false claims about a stolen election, senator lindsey graham, as well as other members of the trump campaign legal team. this investigation was launched after trump made that infamous phone call to the georgia secretary of state asking him to find enough votes to help him reverse joe biden's victory in georgia. we are also learning this morning the special grand jury is looking into two phone calls that senator lindsey graham also made to the georgia secretary of state allegedly asking him about rejecting absentee ballots. this is a claim that senator lindsey graham denies. his office is not responding to our request for comment this morning. important to note here that this special grand jury in georgia is unique. it can investigate. it will issue a report but any further action including pursuing potential indictments will be left up to the district attorney. george? >> that's right. of course, this all comes as the doj is intensifying its investigation and the january 6th committee has their next hearing next week. rachel scott, thanks very much.
7:15 am
t.j.? turning to wimbledon now. we've been enjoying some great tennis, but we have some controversy now. this guy, nick kyrgios set to play a quarterfinal match this morning, just a day after court proceedings were announced in his native australia on accusations he assaulted an ex-girlfriend. lara has made her way to wimbledon. she is there now. good morning to you, lara. >> reporter: good morning, t.j. as we begin day ten here at wimbledon, nick kyrgios has already been fined twice at this tournament alone and as he prepares to take the court in just a little bit the question today is whether this new off-court allegation will force wimbledon to take further action. this morning, new controversy surrounding tennis star nick kyrgios. the 27-year-old facing allegations he assaulted a former girlfriend late last year. an attorney for kyrgios telling abc news, quote, at the present time the allegations are not considered as fact by the court and mr. kyrgios is not considered charged with an offense until the first appearance.

7:35 am
officers. and, t.j., we know that you had an opportunity to speak with her. >> she cried through the first third of the interview. you can understand that. the things that aren't in dispute in this case is that jayland walker was unarmed when police opened fire. he ends up with 60 wounds in his body. so the question is how did we go from a routine traffic stop to that? and the police video that was released was supposed to answer some of this but his sister says she has not been able to watch that video yet. >> i won't see him again. i won't be able to hug him again or just remind him that i love him or anything like that. >> reporter: jada walker is preparing to bury her baby brother. speaking to abc news for the first time since akron police released body camera video showing eight of their officers shooting and killing 25-year-old jayland walker. >> now, you know that video is out there. are you just not ready to see it yet? >> it's just not matching the person that i know because he's not into that and that's not

7:39 am

8:16 am
our chief medical correspondent dr. ashton is here with more. okay, so what are we talking about here, first of all? explain what we're talking about when we say water births and what this study found. >> we're talking about full term uncomplicated pregnancies, so 37 weeks and up, and this was a big study that looked at over 150,000 water births that occurred all over the place in different settings. and we have to remember there is a difference between first stage of labor, which is the active stage of labor, and the second stage which is the pushing and delivery stage. and to be clear, before i tell you the good news, t.j., the american academy of pediatrics and acog, which is our professional organization of ob/gyns, say there is not enough data to say for or against water births. this study may move the needle somewhat. what they found when they looked at over 150 water births, actually some pretty good news.
8:17 am
they found higher rates of maternal satisfaction, less incidents of heavy postpartum bleeding, less pain for the mom. no difference in cesarean section rates which is significant, although they did find slightly more cases of what is called a broken umbilical cord which was managed without any difficulty. so hopefully this will provide the data that the american academy of pediatrics and acog want to give laboring women some more options. >> we hear about at-home water births so often. but what is the difference between in the hospital and -- >> very different and i have to tell you, t.j., as a board certified ob/gyn, i have delivered over 1,500 babies. while complications and life-threatening emergencies are rare, i have seen them happen. when they happen, they can affect either the mother and/or the baby and i will tell you that minutes or seconds count. really it's about having access to an operating room and an anesthesiologist that obviously you don't have at home. >> how do you find out if it is
8:18 am
an option for you? >> for women talk to their midwife, their obstetrician and express what your interests and questions are. that dialogue is so important because women need more options. that is for sure. >> all right, dr. ashton, thank you. i'll see you later. maybe we'll do some work together. >> let's do that. >> robin? >> t.j., thank you. now the 10-year-old twins who rescued their dad from drowning spraining into action using their moves that they had seen in movies. now they're helping other families stay safe. will reeve has that story for us. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this rescue is like a scene from a movie itself. dad is underwater turning blue and the kids, they jump into action. they drag dad out of the water along with their friend and then they are trying to find help, but can't find help so they're applying cpr which they had never been taught. they had only seen it in the movies. this morning this father's heroes are his two young sons who saved him from drowning in
8:19 am
his backyard pool in alabama. >> there's no way we should have been able to do that. >> reporter: brad hassig said he was swimming with his twins, christian and bridon and an 11-year-old neighbor when he passed out in the middle of underwater meditations he's done a dozen times before. >> we were just swimming. the boys were having fun. i like to do calming breathing exercises in the water which entails just sitting underwater. i was saying the lord's prayer and i just -- i don't ever remember finishing it. >> reporter: the boys noticed their dad slumped over at the bottom and sprang into action. they started by dragging 185-pound hassig to the side of the pool to get his head out of the water. >> they weigh 80 some pounds, around there, and i weigh 185 pounds. so they shouldn't have been able to physically do what they did. i mean, everything just went as perfectly as it probably had to have. >> i just had a moment where jesus was sitting right behind
8:20 am
us the whole time. >> reporter: christian and neighbor sam ran for help while bridon started cpr. he had no training but learned a few moves from watching the movies "hook" and "the sandlot." and he kept up the chest compressions and mouth to mouth puntil an ambulance came. 46-year-old hassig was rushed to the hospital and released a day later and is feeling better today. a similar scene playing out just weeks later when american swimmer anita alvarez competed in a synchronized swimming competition and lost consciousness. she sank to the bottom of the pool. hassig says he's done with underwater meditations and he and his boys want to make sure this never happens to anyone else. >> never swim alone. >> get trained to learn how to do cpr. >> reporter: so the reason the boys had to run for help is because they couldn't unlock dad's phone.
8:21 am
so, as a reward for their heroism, they're getting new iphones and the family is setting up a communitywide cpr event for kids and adults to learn and also "the sandlot" looks like it should be required viewing for american youth. >> glad it all worked out well. those two little twins, boy, adorable. thank you, will. now let's get to ginger. ging? >> reporter: yes, robin, our closer to home tour is rolling on with sunshine infused by elita laresca. we're going to do a little weather together. let's start with the fire in southern california. we love when animals get the help they need and these firefighters helping the dogs out so beautiful. even here in houston with all the moisture in the air you have burn bans. >> it's incredible. much of our region under burn bans. there's over 254 counties in texas, ginger and 187 counties now under a burn ban and we know

least three generations of pedigree in it. so they establish their stud book and did all those things and they have to hold matches and have a certain number of households in the country because the goal of any of this is preservation and we really want to preserve the breeds and make sure they're around for the long haul. this breed has been around for a long time. >> tell us about this breed. >> it is a gun dog breed. the only other gun dog breed from italy and it's a short-haired breed. beautiful to look at and max out at 90 pounds. they are the consummate companion-time breed. they were actually developed to be modified for hunting. hi. they're developed to adopt a hunter. a hunting, retreating breed and excellent with families. extremely intelligent and form wonderful bonds with children. they need mild exercise and light jogging. if you have a good yard, they'll be your best friend and they have an excellent temperament as you can see here. they're very chill but when they go out in the field they are tireless and love to be on couches and next to their owner but put them in the field and you'll be tired long before they will.

8:26 am
just fine with you. they need a good amount of exercise. but for kids, for families that really want a dog that's going to be able to go and run and jump and play, this is an excellent breed. >> they're beautiful. thank you both very much. >> thank you for having us. >> we appreciate it -- so cute. want to take him home with us. coming up next here, chris hemsworth, "thor: love and thunder" reveals the superhero movie he pulled on his parents that left them in tears.
