7:07 am
debris. lights went out. a lot of screaming. >> reporter: former congressman patrick murphy was on board when the train derailed. murphy an iraq vet, wasn't injured, so he started helping those around him who were. >> i stayed back and told people who were bleeding to put pressure on the wounds where they were bleeding from because you don't want to see those folks bleed out. >> reporter: people crawled, stumbled, and were carried out of the wreckage. >> he got me out of the train. the train was filled with smoke, but he said mom, i have to go back and get everyone el out. >> reporter: you went back into this dark train to help the people that you could. why did you do it? >> i was in a position where i could help them, so i don't know. i just instinktishly, that's what i did. >> reporter: many victims were covered in blood but walking. the more serious were treated right at the scene. more than 140 victims were transported to at least five area hospitals.

7:10 am
help them to ask the right questions and piece the information together. >> as far as you know can you tell me how dangerous this is as a crash, how bad this is as a crash, and two how dangerous the spot where this train derailed? >> any time you have fatalities in a rail crash, it's significant. this is a highly traveled corridor, one of the busiest corridors in the united states. so there's a lot of trains that pass through here every day. the fact that this corridor is shut down is extremely significant, affecting a lot of passengers. >> does it say anything to you, deborah deborah, the fact that all seven cars derailed on this particular train? >> absolutely. i think that goes to the significance of the crash. not only did you have the cars departing the tracks, but you also had them turning over. that indicates there's quite a lot of energy involved in this event.
7:11 am
those are heavy, heavy cars. so for them to turn over -- and, remember, the passengers and their luggage and everything else is not restrained inside those cars so these what creates some of the damage that happens to the passengers. >> passengers are saying this morning they felt the train was speeding up going into the curve. does that mean anything to you? >> one of the things they'll be looking for is video. trains often have forward facing video. they'll look at what other trains experienced minutes or hours before if there were any defects, anything that any of those trains picked up with respect to rough ride or anything that was captured on the video cameras. >> let's go back to the questions you think need to be asked right now. what are they? >> they're going to be looking at the human, the machine, and the environmental. they're going to be really focused the operator, what he was doing, the condition of the cars, the track, and anything that would have been unusual at that point in time.
7:12 am
>> deborah hersman, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> let geese back to norah in philadelphia. norah? >> reporter: thank you. the investigators are sure to be looking into the curve on the track. i saw that. this is not the only rail disaster to happen here. in 1943 a train called the congressional limit crashed just a short distance away killing 79 people. we're going to be here in philadelphia all morning and ahead i'm going to take you in for a closer look at the wreckage and testimony daenchs curve. right now let's get to other news with gayle and charlie. >> norah, thanks. a helicopter is missing in nepal. it was carrying six military and two from nepal. seth doane is monitoring the situation. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:13 am
we got off the phone with them this morning. they tell us as of this morn nothing contact has been made with anyone on board the missing helicopter. we know the marines were in a remote region of nepal where they were delivering tarps and rice, but ultimately did not return from that mission and a search team that went out overnight did not find any trace of them. the search by air for the missing marines continued at first light this morning as helicopters took off from kathmandu's airport. there are currently about 300 u.s. troops in nepal. they've been using choppers to ferry relief supplies to hard to reach regions. we were there earlier this month as one of the huey helicopters was offloaded from a giant u.s. military c-7 transport plane. tuesday's 7.2 earthquake flattened buildings that had withstood the april earthquake
7:14 am
that sent people running into the streets way from structures. tell the repeated aftershocks makes it impossible for us to stay at home this kathmandu said. tents were set up again and the search for e survivors resumed with emergency workers using cameras and dogs to look for those trapped under rubble. within hours of tuesday's quake t world's food program began assessing the damage where the quake was centered. it's the same region where we saw entire villages destroyed earlier this month. wfp says it's fed close to a million people so far in what it called an immensely challenging operation. one of the things we kept hearing while we were in nepal is it's not just the challenge of the terrain but also the challenge of the timing with the monsoon season approaching. that means rain and likely more
7:15 am
mudslides, land slides that could very easily cut roads charlie, and cut off more aid. >> seth doane in beijing. thanks. a magnitude 6.8 earthquake rattled japan last night. buildings shook in the northern part of the country but no one was hurt. officials say this quake is an aftershock from the major quake that caused a massive sun in 2011. a white police officer in madison, wisconsin, will not face charge this morning for killing an unarmed buy racial teenager. the district attorney says officer matt kenny was justified in shooting tony robinson in march. new dash cam video shows kenny approaching the home before robinson hit him in the head. he fired his gun seconds later. the officer fired seven shots. toxicology reports found
7:16 am
marijuana, xanax, and psychedelic mushrooms in robinson's system. the family is marching this morning. this morning jeb bush is backtracking about controversial comment on iraq. he said in a tv interview on monday he would have a authorized the iraq war even with the intelligence we have now. >> knowing what you know now, would you have authorized the invasion? >> i would have so would hillary clinton, just to remind everybody, and so would anybody confronted with the intelligent they got. >> that drew criticism from both sides of the political aisle. he attempted to clarify his answer yesterday in a radio interview. >> i interpreted the question wrong then. i thought it was if we knew then would we have done it.w, clearly there were mistakes. >> still jeb bush never said the
7:17 am
iraq invasion was ever a mistaking. >> ted wells says he stands by his report. anna werner is outside the gillette stadium in foxborough massachusetts. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ted wells has conducted high-profile investigations over the years and always let his reports speak for themselves. what he did on tuesday was highly controversial. >> he spoke of the deflated football in the nfc championship game. >> in my mind the nfl based onmy view of the world certainly was. hoping that i would come back with a report that would find something wrong with the patriots or tom brady. >> reporter: speaking by phone tuesday it was clear with wells who had enough with people who questione hitz motives. >> those personal attacks, bile candid with you, i would not have respond odd but i think
7:18 am
those attacks are out of bounds unfair and just plap wrong. >> reporter: wells says the text messages uncovered by his investigators were direct evidence of wrongdoing by patriots' brady and two other employees. >> if i were sitting on a jury and the judge had charged the jury that it should apply the preupon drans of the evidence i would have said prove it. >> reporter: the report has been pecked apart since it was released last week. it was derided as a frailed exercise in fact-finding and logic. patriots owner robert craft called it a one-sided investigation. aww today's sports columnist nancy armor says a civil war is brewing between the nfl and the patriots. >> the dynamic between the nfl and robert kraft, one of the most powerful owners in the league, is going to be interesting to watch.

you're looking at the worst accident in 23 years. rescuers spent the night looking for some passengers who are unaccounted for. welcome back to "cbs this morning." and we still do not know why this train crashed. at least six people were killed. eight others are in critical condition at this hour. more than 100 of the 243 people on board were hurt. a short time ago norah went along the tracks to get a better idea of what happened. >> reporter: look at this. the busiest corridor in the country. amtrak corridor in the country shut down. no trains because that's the derailed cars right down there. this morning as the sun is coming up, we're getting our first look at those seven cars that jumped the track there. as you can see this is a big bend, a big curve in the tracks. it's actually known as frankford
7:31 am
junction. amtrak trains can travel 45 miles an hour. they have to slow down because of this very curve. this morning there are local state federal officials on the ground trying to figure out what happened, also trying to make sure there are no more people on board those derailed cars. >> now, let's go live to norah in philadelphia. this is such a sad story. we have all taken the train many times. what are you hearing now? >> yeah. incredibly sad. we've all traveled that route many, many times. i'm in the front yord of a couple. they say the bang from the crash actually woke them up sand so they witnessed much of what happened. they say in talking to them that train usual goes fast around that curve. this also comes at a time that amtrak itself has been pushing for hundreds of millions of dollars in federal money to
7:32 am
upgrade the railway system. so i think that's going to be a part of the debate too as to what happens here and what can be done in the future to prevent another disaster in the future. >> they're looking for the black box. do we know whether the engineer survived this? >> reporter: we don't know. we know that of the seven cars that were catapulted from the rail, one of them was the engine car. that's why the team of investigators has come this morning, the ntsb. there are some talks that it may be a while before we'll be able to download the data if you will as to what exactly happened. i think, frankly, gayle and charlie, there's still a recovery mission here getting everybody off the trains and moving some of those cars. this is such a mass it is disaster. you know amtrak is talking about that it may be days before
7:33 am
amtrak is back up on line. this is such a huge huge scale in terms of what's happened here on these rails. also, you know for many of the people t first word of this crash came from a tweet. i don't know if you saw this. but former representative patrick murphy who's from this area, he was actually on board this train and jericka duncan actually spoke to him last night. jericka, what did you learn? >> reporter: well, he sent that tweet out at about 9:30. i mean just moments after that derailment happened. he said his goal was to make sure everyone was okay. he's an iraq veteran and he said he would not leave anyone behind. so he stayed on that dark train and made sure he could help as many people as he could. >> i think everyone was bleeding, some worse than others. but i just checked my body parts. i had all my body parts. you know, people were screaming
7:34 am
and going out the emergency window. the people in the car, eight or nine made a mad dash. they were stepping over people. there were two who were really serious. one guy couldn't move anything and another was bleeding everywhere. we put pressure on his head. we lost five men on this train. my unit in iraq. >> reporter: they're look into exactly what happened. norah? >> all right, jericka. thank you so much. we're going to ba back in the next hour with the latest on the investigation. right now let's go back to charlie and gayle in new york. >> norah, thanks. time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. the korea herald said north korea executed its defense

7:37 am
posada about the performance-enhanceing drug scandal and his former teammates. >> reporter: the former players who were using performance-enhancing drugs like alex rodriguez, are their records tainted? >> i think right now the biggest is the hall of fame. eventually they're going to have to. but it's tough. it's a tough question to answer today. >> do you resent the players who didn't play clean who got records that you didn't get? >> yeah. the only thing i could think of is three. i was close to the mvp. it didn't happen. alex won mvp. i think second was carlos delgado or david ortiz, i don't remember. i was almost there. what could have happened if you know -- it's tough. it's really tough. >> because some of your teammates, roger clemons and
7:38 am
eventually a-rod will be up for hall of fame. i mean when -- and there's a great debate in baseball about who knew what and did they look the over way. shouldn't players who were known to have used steroids should they be in the hall of fame? >> no. >> no. >> no. no. i don't think it's fair for the guys who have been in the hall of fame who played cleanly. >> even alex rodriguez? >> yeah. i don't think it's farks i really don't. i think the guys who are in the hall of fame need to be players who played with no controversy. >> have you told him that? >> no. >> no. >> would he be surprised to hear it? >> oh, yeah yeah. >> he won't be surprised to hear that some people have that pin. it's an ongoing debate in baseball. >> to have your teammate speak up that's very unusual. >> and you also think about people that might have been most valuable player.
7:39 am
there but someone used steroids. that's hard to lever with that or if you don't get in the hall because of that. >> i can see why that would be frustrating. tomorrow jorge posada opens up about his family plus his relationship with the captain. that would be derek jeter. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning." a battle over bottled water that keepsing the water gushing. >> if you're heading off to work and you don't want to miss the rest of this broadcast, you don't have to miss it. you can set your dvr to watch it any time you'd like. we'll be right back.

crash sight shortly after the derailment trying to help the injured. philadelphia mayor michael nutter could not say how many patterns are unaccounted for and authorities are still unsure what caused all seven cars to slide off the track. and it's not clear yet if any foul play was involved. although early word is that it was an accident. the plane was packed with 238 passengers and five crew members. the national transportation safety board is already here in philadelphia combing through the wreckage looking for an answer to last night's crash. so you can see there's still a lot of activity here. a fire truck went by behind us. balances. it's still very crowded. a lot going on. >> joining us now is congressman jeff denham. congressman, good morning. >> it's my pleasure.
8:04 am
good morning. >> tell us more about this crash. >> certainly we can talk about safety and talk about the crash and derailment. we want to make sure we have safe passenger rail and other rail across the country. we want to look at ptc which is positive train control which is new technology that would allow a train to get a signal to warn them as they're approaching the curve. it can alert a conductor if they're going too fast and set up alerts if they're heading to a turn too quick as well as if there's anything on the track, a disruption on the track so that we're alerted of that as well. >> other than loss of life congressman, what troubles you most about what you're hearing? >> i mean i think the biggsest challenge right now is not knowing. not knowing how this happened

8:06 am
possible across the entire country. >> you recently introduced a bill on passenger rail reform. does it address safety? >> it certainly is moving orward. it's in the senate now. we've got letters from the president that he's in support of the bill. we're trying to get that to his desk as quick as possible. i think the think it will help is keep the profits on the corridor so they can reinvest in their infrastructure and be able to improve the track and improve the ride and hopefully improve the ridership. >> congressman denham thank you so much for joining us. >> charlie, thanks for having us. >> our coverage continues all day long. you can watch it on our new cbs news app or go to crossfit competitor and power lift ter christmas abbott is her name. she's building a fitness empire around as she
