at last word a 17-year-old girl here in the hospital in critical condition. all three of these teenagers were from marin county and check out these pictures we have from chopper 5 last night. even the rescuers are having a tough time with the surf there. this is at muir beach near tennessee cove. and they are hoisting the 17- year-old girl onto a chp helicopter. she and two friends had been hanging out at the beach and didn't seem to realize the tide was coming in. they ended up stranded behind a rock and couldn't get back to the main beach when the waves started pointing. all three of them -- two of them broke free and witnesses ran to help. >> she was too exhausted. she couldn't say anything. we just pulled her out and what we did we just took all our clothes and towels and tried to warm her up as much as we can and we ran back into the water to try to save the next girl. >> the next girl he is referring to is the 17-year-old who is here at the hospital this morning.
5:01 am
she was swept out to sea. a man on the beach tried to rescue her. he got caught in the current, as well. by the time rescuers finally got to her with the helicopter, she was unconscious. she certainly seems to be in the worst shape of the three. the other two teenagers were taken to another hospital with more minor injuries. the man who ran out to try to save the 17-year-old is also okay. so we're waiting for word on her condition here this morning. grace. >> scary stuff. all right, anne makovec in walnut creek, thank you. today university of california students expect to find out whether tuition is going up again this fall. protests are expected. anser hassan is in san francisco, where the police barricades are already up. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. they did it once before and students say they will do it again. later today uc regents meet here at the mission bay campus. on the agenda, another round of possible rate increases.
5:02 am
and here's what it means for students. the proposed rate hike is a 9.6% increase in tuition. that's on top of an already passed 8% increase. combined it means uc college students will pay over $12,000 for the fall semester. and that $12,000 doesn't include other expenses like room and board or books. student groups argue that the uc regents are not making higher education a priority. they say misplaced spending and poor budget decisions are to blame. uc regents on the other hand say the increase is necessary to close a $650 million in budget cuts from the state. they say it's better than the alternative such as laying off staff or closing campuses which is what they say would hurt students even more. if the rate increase is approved, it will be the ninth in the past eight years.
5:03 am
just past tuesday, csu also approved a 12% increase. the theme for later today by the student protestors, disney characters them. say they are going to dress in disney costumes to prove a point, that higher education is not a priority while corporations like disney continue to seek generous tax breaks from the state. elizabeth. >> ongoing battle. anser hassan live this morning in san francisco, thank you. more than 200 san jose state university students knife live in nearby hotels -- may have to live in nearby hotels this fal semester because there is no room in the dorms. the incoming class is the largest in their history. a new policy calls for incoming freshmen to live on campus if their permanent homes are more than 0 miles away. 5:03 -- if their permanent homes are more than 30 miles away they must live on campus.

5:31 am
check out some of these pictures we got from chopper 5 yesterday evening. even the rescuers are having a tough time with the surf. this is at muir beach near tennessee cove and they are hoisting the 17-year-old girl on to a chp helicopter to take her to the hospital. she and two friends had been hanging out at the beach and didn't realize the tide was coming in. they were stranded behind a rock and couldn't get back to the main beach when the waves started pounding. here's how a witness describes it. >> so they were hanging out and it got so late to where the tide was getting higher so when they tried to walk back, they didn't time it enough and the wave came in and just swept them out. that's basically what happened. they didn't have time to get back around to the other side. >> reporter: they were trapped for a while. the 17-year-old was swept out to sea. a man on the beach tried to rescue her and he got caught in the current, as well. he is okay. but by the time the rescuers
5:32 am
got to the teenager, she was already unconscious. and again, she does appear to be in the worst shape of the three. the coast guard of course setting out the warnings we have heard before about being careful even if it seems like a calm day near the ocean because conditions can change on a dime. i'll keep you posted on this girl's condition. elizabeth. >> all right. anne makovec live for us this morning in walnut creek near john muir. thank you. the coroner in san jose is trying to find out what killed a person whose body was found near a golf course. investigators say that a fisherman found the body in coyote creek yesterday evening just north of capitol expressway. the body has not been identified. apparently the process takes a couple of days. california legislators want to introduce a new bill inspired by the casey anthony trial. caylee's law would make it a crime to fail to quickly report a child's disappearance or death. they are seeking the change after anthony was acquitted of murder in her two-year-old daughter's death. the pill would make it a felony
5:33 am
not to report a missing child within 48 hours of the child's death or within two hours of a child's death. there are similar bills pending in at least 17 other states. protests are expected today as university of california regents are likely to approve yet another tuition increase. anser hassan joins us from san francisco, where that vote is planned for today. anser. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, we're expecting a lot of student protestors here at uc mission bay campus. on the agenda for the uc regents meeting, another round professor posed rate headaches. the regents will vote on a 9.6% increase in tuition for all 10 schools on top of an 8% increase already approved for the fall semester. combined students will pay an extra $1,900 this year, which means over $12,000 for the year. and that doesn't include room, board, books or other expenses.
5:34 am
now, the recently passed california state budget cut $650 million from higher education. so uc regents are poised to increase tuition to help fill the gap. they argue the rate increase is better than the alternative such as cutting staff or closing satellite campuses but student groups say it's misplaced spending and poor budget decisions that are to blame. they are also concerned about recent pay increases to some uc executives. if approved, it will be the ninth round of increases in just past eight years. and these increases will be immediate. they will start this fall. and that's another problem for students. they say it's too much too soon. grace? >> certainly is. all right, anser hassan in san francisco, thank you. in the meantime, san jose state university is going to have such a big freshman class this semester that there is a scramble to find places for them to live. in fact, more than 200 students may have to live at a nearby hotel this fall semester. contributing to that problem is a new policy at sjsu.
5:35 am
incoming freshmen who live more than 30 miles from campus are now required to live on campus. but there isn't enough room at campus residence halls to accommodate everyone. time now is 5:35. we have traffic and weather. christy, i feel like i should start prepping they -- kristy, i feel like i should start prepping the turkey, decorating the tree! >> i know. these overcast conditions don't help. plenty of cloud cover again this morning just like yesterday although a little more sunshine so that's hope in sight. we'll see a little more sunshine inland. but right now in the bay area around bay shores and the coast, still seeing plenty of cloud cover. those inland spots the clouds aren't stretching as far inland as yesterday so we'll have more sun later on this afternoon. temperatures outside right now, pretty consistent. 53 for san francisco, 56 vallejo, 56 livermore. highs today similar to
5:36 am
yesterday. unseasonably cool. 76 fairfield. 65 oakland. 69 redwood city today. we'll have your full forecast in a few minutes. but over to gianna now with a look at the roadways. >> thank you, kristy. we're going to show you some video we shot a few minutes ago of this sinkhole in san jose. it was reported around 3 a.m. our photographer got a different perspective here. it's first reported as 30 feet by 30 feet. we are seeing some closures here. southbound guadalupe parkway is completely shut down in the right lane as well as alma so you still have the left lanes opened. you can access guadalupe parkway. they hope to have everything reold by noon. when that morning commute gets into full swing this could cause problems. again, this is southbound guadalupe parkway, right lane closed as well as the alma off- ramp again until further notice. hopefully noon is when that will happen. you can see on our sensors here, still green. so things are moving okay working your way through there. a look at the bay bridge coming up but right now back to you guys. armed robbers hit an ice cream truck in marin city this week marking the city's sixth
5:37 am
robbery since last month. officers say in this case three young men pointed a semi- automatic pistol at the ice cream vendor's stomach on tuesday demanding cash. they ran away with about 160 bucks. the suspects were wearing black hooded sweaters covering their faces. in a few hours the bart board of directors will discuss the deadly shooting at the civic center station in san francisco. they are expected to focus on the general manager's report of the july third incident. bart says officers opened fire after the man lunged at them with a knife. the agency has promised to release surveillance video once the investigation is over. oakland police say that they have a man in custody in connection with the shooting death of a high school senior. michael heartsman-anthony of oakland was arrested last week although police didn't announce it until yesterday. he is suspected in the murder of ditiyan franklin, jr. franklin was shot while riding a bicycle on ritchie street in may just weeks before he was to graduate from high school. police say that the suspect and
5:38 am

5:40 am
negotiations today... yesterday he walked out of a meeting with the congressional lead president obama and republicans resume debt ceiling negotiations today. yesterday he walked out of the meeting with the congressional leaders telling them, quote, enough is enough. the treasury department says that that debt ceiling if it is not raised by august 2 the u.s. will default on its bills. moody's is ready to consider lowering the government's credit rating amid
5:41 am
another day of talks. here's jill schlesinger editor at large of what can we expect if nothing happens by august 2? >> reporter: it brings up a funky situation. i know that we have talked about default a lot but the reality is i don't think there's going to be a real default. what i think is going to happen is interest on the debt will have the highest priority. bondholders will be paid. from there, what's likely to happen is the government won't default on its obligations but will delay some of them. so may mean seniors may have to wait for social security checks and the government will shut down nonessential service like national parks, museums, and probably furlough some nonessential government employees, as well. >> we have seen the stock market continuing to rise. why is it that people seem not nervous about this? i mean, this is huge. >> right. it seems like a head scratcher but here's the situation. when i talk to traders every
5:42 am
day they say they fully expect the politicians to reach a deal or not debt ceiling so markets have been trading on other issues like yesterday the fed chairman ben bernanke said that they might do something to boost the economy if we still see some weakness. that said, let's be clear. if there is no deal, it would be devastating for stocks. interest rates would rise which would be bad news for those people who are looking to borrow money to buy a home or start a business. and if the situation were to persist, this is kind of scary, we could enter another recession. and, if you want a little bit more scary stuff we have 18 scary debt facts. >> great. well, you know, with bernanke coming out yesterday and saying that it is possible that they may have to stimulate the economy, is that an indication that we could get that double- dip recession that a lot of people have been talking about? >> reporter: well, bernanke was very specific. he did say that he thought that a lot of the conditions are temporary. he said if they persisted, that the fed might act. and at the don't mean that we are going to be in a recession.
5:43 am
