free-throws. world peace is always going to body up. durant does a good job going in to the contact and earning his way to the free-throw line. >> mike: 42, 36, and now 34 and counting in the three games against the lakers this year. unbelievable high percentage. that's why he's leading the league in scoring right now. been on a terrific tear during this road trip, longest one of the season for the thunder, sixth and final game of the trip. they're in a real battle. sefolosha back on bryant. five to shoot. bryant drives past him. finds gasol, and it's through.

from abc news world headquarters, this is abc news "world news" with david muir. good evening on this sunday night. we begin here with those terrible images coming in tonight after that horrific nightclub fire, the blaze breaking out in southern brazel. tonight over my shoulder, can you see some of the searing images we're seeing for the first time ourselves. the desperate battle at the door of the club. firefighters and club goers, the clucky ones who managed to escape. trying to reach the young people trapped by the flames and the choking smoke. threeing to get to the one
working exit, the one door to get in and out. on lookers trying to save lives and at day break, faurppingts and mothers looking for their sons and daughters. the investigation now under way and matt gutman leading us off tonight. >> reporter: so many victims, and so young. firefighters in the town of santa maria barely able to comprehend the tragic scene. the popular nightclub called "kiss" still smoldering in the morning hours after the blaze erupted inside that club packed with about 2,000 college students. the cause is under investigation, but witnesses say it started when the band performing onstage lit up fireworks and pointed them toward the ceiling. officials say that set some acoustic insulation on fire, and in seconds, the club began filling with thick smoke, setting off panic and a stampede. with flames leading toward them,
the skroud scrambled through the dark chaos, toward the exit, pushing and shoving to escape the crush. most of the victims reportedly died of smoke inhalation from being trampled. firefighters arrived quickly and with the help of club-goers who had managed to get out, this video was captured by an eyewitness who ran to the scene. it shows several young men bravely helping the overwhelmed firefighters pull the victims out. others hacked away at walls with axes to find people still trapped. one of the victims who made it out says. >> there was some kind of small gate that was chained. with all of the people pushing against it, it brox. people started going under the gate. but i was afraid to do that, because i was afraid to get run over. when i fell, some guy fell next to plea. at the same time, he went under the gate. i grabbed on to him and he pulled me out. news of the horrifying tragedy spread quickly through the town of about 250,000 people and family members rushed to the scene. this is my most accounts the
world's deadliest nightclub fire in a decade. and not the first time pir row tech nicks are to blame. in 2004, a flare set off a fire that killed 175 people at a club in buenos aires. and in 2003, 100 people died at the station nightclub in rhode island when a prop used by the band "great white" set the walls and ceiling on fire. firefighters arrived to the horrific sight of hundreds of people, stuck in the front doorway of the club frantically trying to get out. the tragic irony of this incident, a news crew was inside that night shooting a spot about nightclub safety. matt gutman, abc news, miami. >> our thanks to you. at this hour, parents now on the scene. a heart-breaking day. one couple going in at a time at the makeshift morgue. i spoke with sara who was on the scene just moments ago. sarah, we've been told the list of names has been released. can you describe the scene there? >> reporter: it's really like a war zone here. we have 232 bodies laid down
side by side. so the families go inside one by one, they look at the bodies. >> can you describe for us what it's been like for the mothers and fathers coming to the scene? >> reporter: terrible, terrible. you know your daughter, your son, does not answer the phone, but you still try. you can see people still trying to call the cellphones. one of the most sad things, the cellphones in there were ringing for people looking for their sons and daughters. those phones will never be answered. everywhere you look, the city, people have red eyes, people are crying. people are holding each other. it's really hard. >> there were survivors who got out of that club who said this fire began when band members lit flares. is that your understanding? >> reporter: yeah, yeah. the ceiling was too short and some flashes got to the ceiling and the fire started.
people say that he tried to extinguish the fire, but it wasn't working. >> our thanks to sara tonight. our coverage of the nightclub tragedy. matt gutman will be reporting from the scene tomorrow morning on "good morning america." we move on tonight, though, and in this country to a massive weather system, an ice storm on the move from the midwest to the mid atlantic. glazing cars like these right here in iowa. this firefighter taking part in a rescue drill in illinois. tonight freezing rain moving eastward and ginger zee is here to talk about the monday morning commute. >> reporter: icing on a very cold winter cake. parts of the midwest are spliping and sliding through their sunday. from the treacherous roads in minnesota to difficult stops in springfield, illinois. in ames, iowa, it was a quarter inch of crunch. and the ice enveloped ranches and berries from iowa to
southeast minnesota, where we find justin thompson gee. >> really weighing them down. we could see power outages don't. the ice will not let up until later tonight. >> reporter: do you hear that? that's sleet covering the ground in northern illinois. you couldn't see through the windows. prows were out in full force. at least 300 flights are canceled. and by tomorrow, so worthy of an instagram, will melt away. >> where is it headed now? >> just moving out of chicago, through parts of smiffing, into the mid atlantic. look at that ice, the purple color, north of it from new york to boston, not out of the woods. going to be snow. severe weather is our next big effect. look at the cold air behind that extreme warmth up in front. you have to be worried tuesday into wednesday from st. louis to d.c., down to montgomery,

so, his hand would have been right in the spot that i had the shingles. no tango. no rhumba. you can't be touched. for more of the inside story, visit shinglesinfo.com i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel.
enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

in 40 states. what's behind it? and word tonight one major retailer telling "world news" they will not impose this fee. >> reporter: swiping your card might be the easiest way to shop, but starting right now, it might also be more expensive. stores can now legally charge you more money for using a credit card. as much as 4% more. stores have always had to pay a fee to let you swipe, but following a settlement with retailers can now pass that fee on to you. >> what would think if they added? >> i would be really upset. i wouldn't want to pay more. >> there are back end charges everywhere you go. >> sounds like you sympathize with the stores? >> they're losing business all over the place. >> reporter: ten states have already barred retailers from charging customers the fee. >> this would probably be a greater impact and import to local merchants. >> reporter: some big retailers
have already said they won't be passing on the surcharge to customers. walmart told abc news, we are not interested in surcharging customers in order to allow credit card companies to continue charging unfair fees. but there's a way to know if your neighborhood store will make you pay more. >> when you walk in, there's a sign con spinniously display indicating that they do surcharge. then at the cash register and also on your receipt, they have to clearly disclose what the surcharge is. >> reporter: if you're shopping online, check the website's home page because the retailer must tell you if it's charging you that extra fee. none of this applies to debit cards, just credit cards. >> all right, thanks. when we come back here tonight, the coaches hiding behind one another. the player nearly seven feet tall, hitting the floor, all because of that guy, a bat
