7:10 am
former penn state football coach triggered the investigation that led to sandusky's trial and his sentence to life behind bars. now, victim number one is going public in a book called "silent no more." he is sure to create even more shock waves with what he says. and he broke his silence to "20/20" anchor, chris cuomo. good morning, chris. >> good morning, elizabeth. this is clearly david and goliath. except there were many goliaths. this is a kid who took on a coach connected to a university in a dominates his hometown. all its credibility, prestige and power against him. but he had something that trumped it all. he had courage. and he had the truth. the trial of convicted child molester and former penn state football coach, jerry sandusky, may never have happened were not for this brave, young man. aaron fisher was the first to accuse sandusky of being a monster. a key witness at trial. and now, he wants everyone to
7:11 am
know how hard it was to bring sandusky down. >> victim means people feel sympathy for you. i don't want that. i would rather be somebody who did something good. >> reporter: aaron is 18. but was just 11 when he first met sandusky. after he was invited to his summer camp for the coach's charity, the second mile. sandusky soon targeted him, showering the boy with special attention. pulling aaron out of school during the day. sleepovers at his home on weekends. it was there, in his basement, that sandusky victimized aaron. but you weren't able to say -- >> nope. >> reporter: -- this guy is a monster. he's sexually assaulting me. >> couldn't do it. >> reporter: why? >> embarrassment. fear of not being believed. >> reporter: that fear kept aaron silent for years. but eventually, he would gather the strength to stand up to the
7:12 am
powerful football coach. telling his principal, what was happening during a meeting at school. and that is when his mother says aaron was betrayed again. >> they tell me to go home and think about it. >> reporter: go home and think about what? >> that's what i said. go home and think about what? what is there to think about? we need to call the police right now. jerry was in the school. >> reporter: we found principal karen probst, who is still working at aaron's old school. why are you moving so fast now when you moved so slowly when aaron needed your help? i don't understand this. why would you avoid these questions? the school says it did appropriately respond and reported the allegations immediately. however, as you can see, they didn't want to talk to us about it. here's the key. this is an accountability story. aaron says there are others who betrayed him that never were held to answer for what happened in the situation. tonight, we will find them. and you'll see it on "20/20." >> all right, chris. thanks so much.
7:13 am
you can see more of chris' exclusive interview tonight on "20/20" at 10:00, 9:00 central, here on abc. >> that's powerful stuff. we're going to turn to a new government report showing a growing health hazard for small children in your own home. since we told you about the minilaundry detergent pods that kids mistake for candy, the number of incidents has striked. linsey davis has the details. >> reporter: it's happened more often than originally thought. children thinking these bite-sized single-dose laundry packages for candy. poison centers across the country were seeing on average, ten cases a day. n a new report says that more than 1,000 children were sickened. but parents are learning just how dangerous these packs of laundry detergent can be. when children eat them.
7:14 am
>> candy, candy. i figured they were eating canada. >> reporter: isabella had severe vomiting and diarrhea. many children are experiencing drowsines drowsiness, nausea, and difficulty breathing. >> you don't think about safety-proofing laundry detergent. >> reporter: back in may, procter & gamble, the makers of tide, told abc news, they weren't just thinking about 50i9. they planned to unveil new child-proof packaging by summer. a double-latch lid. and a larger warning on this container that some say looks like a candy jar. now, they tell us they've distributed those containers to stores. but the old containers were never recalled, which would explain why when we went to four stores this week, we still found these easy to open plastic bags right on the shelf. the maker of purex backs, say
7:15 am
they have labels to warn parents and provide instructions in the event of ingestion. other manufacturers did not respond to our request for an update. >> i'm surprised at that. thank you very much. now, to a brazen theft caught on camera. you better be careful if you have an suv or minivan because thieves are swiping rows of seats from vehicles in just seconds. what's behind the business senior thefts? >> reporter: the owner of this suv parked it in his dallas driveway, and locked it up. what draws the attention of the crooks in that red car? enough to make them put it in reverse and come back? it turns out the three thieves are after, of all things, the third row of seats. watch as one of the trio breaks into the back. the other two dive in. within seconds, part of the seats are out. and in just 40 seconds, the
7:16 am
entire back row is gone. police say so-called third seat theft is on the rise, especially in texas and california. >> i feel really bad. people work hard for what they have. >> reporter: replacement seats are in demand by suv owners with damaged or worn out ones. crooks can get about $1,000 for the seats on sites like craigslist or in salvage yards. not bad for 40 seconds' work. police have often recovered the stolen seats but have no way of reuniting them with their rightful owner. that's why los angeles police are encouraging owners to unengrave the suv v.i.n. number on the bottom of the seats. >> it's something that's simple. >> reporter: something as inexpensive as a bike lock will slow crooks down. a good investment because replacing a third seat at a dealership can cost up to

7:18 am

7:43 am
match one of the sicker's hip. even bieber's tweets fueled the roomers. yesterday, during the show, me and my tour manager had some stuff stolen. i had a lot of personal footage on that computer. but it turns out, the only real footage was this. the biebs showing off his dance moves in his new music video with nicki minaj. and that controversial photo, apparently a p.r. stunt, pulled by the artist to promote his music video. why risk your reputation for a publicity prank? >> it's part of becoming a pop star now a days. you can't do it unless you do these things for attention. >> reporter: earlier this month, these racy rihanna photos were posted on instagram. they weren't a mistake, either. rihanna was promoting her purr fume. and back in june, the material

a deep, throbbing, persistent ache. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia, thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and for some people, it can work in as early as the first week of treatment. so now i can do more of the things that i enjoy. lyrica is not for everyone. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior, or any swelling or affected breathing or skin, or changes in eyesight, including blurry vision or muscle pain with fever or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. with less pain, i'm feeling better now that i've found lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain.
