7:05 am
investigators. likely the white house won't do that. we will see what happens when they get that. >> we expect the president to highlight the good work of the first responders and civilians that helped out. >> reporter: yes. that is definitely it. >> i'm sorry. go ahead, lauren, if you have a minute. >> reporter: no. i was just going to say as the president was leaving the white house, he once again said he would pay his respects and thank those that helped out during such a horrible tragedy. >> lauren blanchard, live in las vegas. thank you. the bay area continues to mourn for the victims of sunday night's shooting ram package in las vegas. allie rasmus is in san ramon now at california highway school where there are flowers for two of the school's graduates who were killed in the shooting. allie. >> reporter: yes. the flowers and balloons placed in front of the school's memorial plaque. they have a memorial plaque on the school campus where they

7:37 am
was shot there. i laid there and composed myself for a minute. i said, okay, i can't stay here. i'm going to die. or i'm going to bleed out. it hurt so bad. but i knew i didn't want to die. i wasn't ready to die. so i just kept pushing forward and tried my best and tried to stay low. and i was being trampled. and it was so hard to move. everybody was stepping on everybody. and unfortunately i had to step on people just to get to where i needed to get to. and i knew once i jumped over that fence, i'm look okay i'm a little closer to the exit. and the shooting wasn't stopping. >> thanks to a cab driver, she was able to get to a hospital. and instead of the cab driver driving her to the nearest hospital, the driver took her

7:40 am
it takes on a new resonance and reinforces our commitment to emergency preparation. >> reporter: the drill ran overnight after parts of terminal 1 had been clear. there were announcements made so that if someone stumbled upon the drill would not think it was the real thing. they figured out what worked and didn't work. airport personnel say if everything went smoothly, they didn't drill properly. they are trying to figure out where the problems lie so if a real disaster strikes, hopefully they will have anticipated it. christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news. terrorism in the las vegas shooting rampage are on the minds of police at levi's stadium where a concert will happen tonight. at least 40,000 people are expected to see coldplay tonight. security at levi's will be tighter than official. officials won't reveal the exact measures they are taking but the police chief says that fans should not change their

8:05 am
broken and angry about what happened. she plans to be a strong advocate going forward for things like stricter background checks for gun purchases, more awareness of mental health issues and better security at concerts and largests. >> they really did not deserve to die this way. she needed to be recognized and remembered as a person that was a patriot and a leader in her community. she was loved by everyone. >> reporter: now, confirmation of cohen's death came hours after we learned of another cal high graduate who was one of the victims of the tragedy. 50-year-old stacee etcheber, wife a san francisco police officer and a mother of two also died in the shooting. she graduated from cal high in 1985. hundreds of people last night gathered for a candle light vigil to remember her at her children's elementary school in novato. she and her husband were at the

8:07 am
festival. it was the last conversation they had. the family tried to reach her sunday night there. was no answer until a stranger, cody robertson answered her phone. >> once she got shot, she basically just fell to the ground. >> we're hoping that she didn't feel that fear. you know, or the terror or anything. like it was quick, a quick death, a peaceful death. >> vo met cody robertson at the concert. he was standing next to her when she was shot. he tried to shield her from the gunfire as he then loaded her into a truck with other victims. robertson delayed the flight home so he could meet her family in vegas and provide them closure. a san jose state student who was injured but survived the rampage is getting help from her classmates. almost $20,000 has been raised for her on a gofundme page to help pay her medical bills. family members say she has a collapsed lung and broken rib. she is studying for her master's degree in social work.

8:13 am
puerto rico, but you have thrown our budget a little out of whack. we have spent a lot of money on puerto rico. that's fine. we saved a lot of lives. >> mr. president, enough. stop blaming puerto rico for the storm that devastated their shores. i don't remember the president telling texas that they threw our budget out of whack. >> it's estimated that the loss from hurricane maria to puerto rico including lost output could total $95 billion. another comment that he made during during his trip to puerto rico getting attention on fox news. he said that puerto rico's debt should be wiped out. >> we're going to work something out. we have to look at their whole debt structure. you know, they owe a lot of money to your friends on wall street. we will have to wipe that out. it's going to be have to be -- you can say good-bye to that. i don't know if it is goldman sachs. whoever it is, you can wave good-bye to that. >> puerto rico declared
