7:01 am
we have a big announcement from ginger zee and little adrian training for this moment for months. now they're joining us live with news you don't want to miss. it's right here on "gma." ♪ come on. ah! you did too when you saw baby adrian. oh, we can't wait to check in with ginger and sweet little adrian. >> and big day for adrian. today is his two-month birthday. >> two months. >> happy birthday. >> we're going to check in with the family a little later. other big headlines. the race for the white house now reaching the vatican. donald trump and the pope in a war of words. our terry moran was on the plane with the pope and we'll get to all that in a moment. >> an electrifying moment. we'll begin with that terrifying chopper crash in hawaii. it went down with five tourists on board. a 15-year-old passenger is in critical condition this morning.
7:02 am
we'll talk with two men who jumped into action on the scene after this report from our kayna whitworth in honolulu. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: yeah, george, good morning to you. that tour helicopter, i want to show you where it crashed, right behind me in that murky water and it is still there this morning. this is an area visited by nearly 2 million people every year and helicopter tours are very popular. but once you see this video, it's hard to imagine anyone made it out alive. a heart-stopping moment caught on camera. this helicopter carrying tourists near pearl harbor suddenly plummeting into the ocean just 20 feet from shore. >> oh. >> reporter: a family of four including a 15-year-old boy and the pilot on board. the chopper falling from the sky, then crashing into the water. sinking near the popular pearl harbor visitors center. witnesses frantically jumping in to help. >> we all jumped the wall and ran over to help. i pulled everything out of my
7:03 am
pockets. >> reporter: almost immediately three people swam to the surface but the 15-year-old reportedly trapped underwater for several minutes before he was finally pulled out of the wreckage. >> we got him. >> oh, god. yay. [ applause ] >> whoo. >> reporter: first responders performing cpr on the boy before he was transported to the hospital in critical condition. >> three minutes that person was underwater. that was scary. >> reporter: this morning the ntsb is investigating what caused this doors off helicopter to go down. bystanders say the last thing they heard was the chopper sputtering then two loud bangs before it crashed. now, in addition to that 15-year-old boy who is still listed in critical condition this morning, three other people were taken to the hospital. one was released overnight. now this tour was run by genesis aviation and at this point they have no comment. george. >> thanks, kayna. we are joined by christian gardner who jumped in to save
7:04 am
those passengers and shawn winrich who caught that rescue on tape. thank you both for joining us this morning. chris, let me just begin with you. when did you realize what was going wrong and what did you do? >> i heard the helicopter. i did not see it. i just heard it go into what we call auto rotation and i saw people running and screaming and -- >> all your instincts kicked in. what did you see when you got underwater and how did you guys manage to get the person in the belt free? >> pearl harbor is pretty murky. luckily the helicopter is only in about ten feet of water. and they were fortunate to have been flying with the doors off, which is a good thing. you know, so the passengers were accessible. everybody had gotten out except i guess he was a kid in the back. >> aand you guys had to cut through that seat belt. >> a couple other guys in the water with me, brian who is a federal police officer and we had a navy sailor and one of them finally got a knife and we
7:05 am
were able to slightly cut through and it took a long time. six or seven minutes to finally cut through it. >> and shawn, as you were there, you just happened to be turning in the direction of the helicopter, right? >> i just happened to have, you know, my phone aimed or in that direction and, you know, noticed the helicopter flying awkwardly low and essentially coming straight for us. i wasn't sure. i thought it would be cool -- >> why didn't you run? >> at that instant i did have a momentary fear for safety of myself and others around with rotating blades and you can actually see in the slow motion video where i did actually duck a little bit right after the impact. >> and thank goodness now everybody is doing better this morning. chris, you know, did you ever think about the danger you were putting yourself in? you acted so quickly.
7:06 am
>> you know, anybody else would have done the same thing and there was multiple people that jumped in the water at the same time, so it's just the way we do it here in hawaii. >> and a lot of people are grateful that you did. thanks very much. thanks for joining us this morning. >> all right. aloha. >> you're welcome. >> all generous instinct there. >> that's how they do it there in hawaii and hopefully everybody will make a full recovery. the other big headline this morning. donald trump versus the pope. the two caught in a public war of words as pope francis proclaims the gop front-runner is not christian and a new poll out this morning shows trump's lead is shrinking in south carolina. abc's tom llamas has the latest, joins us from columbia. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. that shows the magnitude of donald trump's unorthodox campaign and his controversial policies. on the global stage a world leader condemning trump and that new poll you showed down here in south carolina, the race is tightening. a new fight for donald trump,
7:07 am
pope francis proclaiming what trump's critics have been whispering, that trump is not christian. >> i didn't think it was a good thing for him to say, frankly. >> reporter: the pope making the statement on a flight back to mexico in his papal plane. a person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be and not of building bridges is not christian, the pope said. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> they're using the pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves. >> reporter: trump, the south carolina front-runner blaming mexico for convincing the pope trump's border wall is not humane and his campaign tweeting an image of vatican city showing it's surrounded by walls. >> so, if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which as everyone knows is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> and trump who just a few days ago said this about senator ted cruz -- >> i have never seen anybody
7:08 am
that lied as much as ted cruz and he goes around saying he's a christian. >> reporter: trump now saying this. >> no leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith. >> reporter: but in this fight, cruz was trying to stay neutral. >> listen, that's between donald and the pope. i'm not going to get in the middle of that. i'll live it to the two of them to work it out. >> do you think it's un-christian to have a border wall? >> reporter: senator cruz also favors a border wall. >> reporter: do you think it's un-christian to build a border wall? he dodged me as i tried to get his comments. do you think a border wall is un-christian? >> i'll visit with the voters now. thank you. >> reporter: overnight senator marco rubio, a catholic, said this. >> the pope wasn't speaking about a theological matter but a political matter. i disagree with a lot of things donald trump said but i do think america has a right to secure its borders. >> reporter: donald trump still says he wants to meet the pope and respects his position as head of the catholic church. this is not your typical donald
7:09 am
trump counterpunch, but, again, robin, we are talking about the pope. >> thank you. chief foreign correspondent terry moran was part of that midair news conference on board the papal plane and joins us now from the vatican. terry, that must have been something on the plane like that. did the pope intend to inject himself into the presidential race? >> reporter: well, good morning, robin. it was a stunning moment and we all looked at each other when he said it. i think the pope is being accurately quoted. he knew exactly what he was doing. he knows who donald trump is. look at his face when he's asked about him and, in fact, he's been saying these things to european leaders here, the exact same kind of things. also you go back to his time in argentina, he gave a lot of politicians headaches. he knows exactly what he's doing here. >> i've traveled, like many of us, to vatican city many times, and i'm trying to recall that wall that donald trump is referring to. what is he talking about? >> reporter: well, they're pretty spectacular. they surround much of the vatican, thousand-year-old massive medieval walls to keep
7:10 am
out bandits and invading barbarians and such, however, just behind me here, that's st. peter's square. you can walk right in. there's no wall. just a little white line on the pavement and millions of people walk in there every year. no police check. no border check. people just walk right into the vatican. that's the point. >> quite open to the public. all right, thank you. >> we move on to the democrats and what looks like a dead heat in nevada. the latest polls show hillary clinton and bernie sanders neck and neck and ramping up the attacks ahead of tomorrow's caucuses. cecilia vega is on the scene in las vegas. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hi, george, good morning to you. the attacks are at fever pitch here but bernie sanders is feeling confident. he says if people show up tomorrow he could win this. overnight, hillary clinton firing off on bernie sanders for criticizing the president. >> senator sanders wasn't really a democrat until he decided to run for president. you know what, well, it's true. >> reporter: the final forum before saturday's caucuses, the
7:11 am
two rivals in this neck and neck race, going head-to-head. >> there is one of the two democratic candidates here who actually ran against barack obama. it wasn't me. >> i take a backseat to nobody in being very clear about what i will do to make sure wall street never crashes main street again. >> reporter: sanders also saying he is a feminist and this. >> in fact, gloria steinem made me an honorary woman many, many years ago. >> reporter: in this fight to the finish both sides fighting to win latino and union workers in the silver state. >> i'm not just making speeches or promises free this and free that and free everything. >> reporter: in the process, they nearly came face-to-face on the picket line, clinton first, just minutes later, sanders right there too. >> so thank you very much for what you are doing. >> reporter: the attacks never ending. sanders accusing clinton of cozying up to president obama in an election year. >> and we know what that's about. that's trying to win support
7:12 am
from the african-american community where the president is enormously popular. >> reporter: and clinton asked if she's always told the truth caught up on her own answer. >> i've always tried to always, always. >> reporter: and i stop by one of hillary clinton's campaign offices here in las vegas. i can tell you it was packed full of volunteers. they are making thousands of calls just out of that one office alone every single day. if bernie sanders is feeling confident hillary clinton is not going down without a fight george. >> caucuses at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow. cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk about it with our analyst matt dowd and cokie roberts. let's begin with the comments from the pope. your mom lindy boggs served as ambassador to the vatican for several years. how surprised were you that the pope injected himself in this way? >> well, i was a little bit surprised but he has been very clear on all kinds of issues where he thinks he's following what jesus said which is what it is to be christian. he backed away when people said should you not vote for donald
7:13 am
trump, he said, i'm not going to get into that and he did also say i'll give him the benefit of the doubt. but his basic statement that if what you're going to do is build walls instead of bridges, it's kind of hard to argue with. >> although that would implicate a lot of the other candidates, as well, not just donald trump. meanwhile, matthew dowd, what impact do you think it has on the race? >> this whole story makes me think this should start with the pope and a presidential candidate walk into a bar. in the course of this i think it's an amazing week that we've had. you have a candidate, the leading candidate for the republicans to get in a fight with the pope. get in fight with the popular governor and the popular republican president. get in fight with a popular incumbent us senator and is likely to win the south carolina primary in the course of this. i think this doesn't hurt him at all and in some ways it may help him. if people have to pick between building a wall and supporting the pope, they're going to in the republican primary right now they're going to pick building the wall and you can see every
7:14 am
other one of donald trump's opponents have not gone anywhere near this or they've supported donald trump in this. >> meantime, cokie, you are actually -- >> it's also important to keep -- right in south carolina where the catholic population is 7% total. this might have been a much more difficult moment for donald trump in new hampshire or iowa where the catholic population is 35%, 25%. so this is not a state where the pope is likely to be terribly popular. >> end of the line for some gop candidates tomorrow? >> yes, i think at best a four-way going forward so 6-4 and could be a three-way race after tomorrow. >> matt dowd, cokie roberts, thanks very much. back to robin. >> now, george, back to that big warm-up heading east and the firenados heading to the plains and rob marciano is tracking it all for us. >> good morning out in times square. it's 25 degrees but we've seen this week we can go from winter to spring, even summer in a hurry and that's exactly what we'll do. already happening in the plains. look at this video out of pratt
7:15 am
county, missouri, just outside of kansas city, numerous grass fires yesterday. a firenado or whirl, kind of a dust devil in those fires were controlled quickly. some minor evacuations but to danger there. wind warnings up. more high fire danger in the central part of the u.s. and wind watches from california all the way to new york state. temperatures in the 70s and 80s again and that gets to new york city by the end of the week. robin, back over to you. >> thank you. now to the supreme court, the world, of course, remembering justice scalia as his body lies in repose today in the supreme court building. president obama and the first lady expected to pay their respects this afternoon ahead of tomorrow's funeral. abc's jon karl is outside the court for us now. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you can really feel the history in the air here at the supreme court. justice scalia's cas cat arrived here and his clerk lining the
7:16 am
steps, 30 years worth of clerks who served with him. his casket making its way into the supreme court and his final journey into the building he had served as a justice for so long and his body will lie in repose. the first hour a private ceremony and after that the public will be able to come in until 8:00 tonight and pay their respects. we expect president obama, first lady michelle obama to be among those coming to pay their respects this amp. >> and we're told that the obamas will not be attending the funeral tomorrow. do we know why? >> reporter: well, the white house said the president felt the most appropriate place for him to pay his respects would be here. come to the court with the first lady michelle obama. pay their respects and then tomorrow for the funeral services. vice president biden will respect the white house. the white house points out that the vice president biden travels with a smaller security detail
7:17 am
than the president and his presence would be less disruptive. they say no snub intended. the president has been quite generous in his descriptions of scalia what he called a giant of the supreme court. the now to amy with the other top developing stories right now starting with breaking news against -- in the fight against isis. >> that's right. we are getting word of a u.s. air strike in libya. the target was an isis camp west of the capital city of tripoli. believed to be the location of an isis leader wanted for attacks in nearby tunisia. no word if he was killed but more than 30 isis recruits reportedly have died. apple may have extra time in its battle against the fbi. bloomberg reporting they've been given until next friday to respond to a court order directing them to unlock the cell phone that belonged to syed farook. facebook is the latest tech company to support apple in fighting the order citing those privacy concerns. and some shocking video from south texas. the tap water, look at that, in one city looks more like oil.
7:18 am
wow. people in crystal city say they were never warned that their water system was being flushed. this all comes as several city officials face corruption charges. the mayor you see there was recently led away in handcuffs. overseas a near-miss at this train station. a man running across the tracks barely escapes with his life. the train came in just as he was about to jump onto the platform but he hurried back with seconds to spare. and finally, this may look like liquid hot magma but it's not. these images show a rare phenomenon at yosemite national park for only a few days each february the sun hits horsetail falls just right making the water look like a river of fire and, robin, this is for you, magma. >> thank you. it's been a long time. thank you. >> you held it in for a little while. >> end with a bang. >> to rob. >> the winds cranking today, george. cold front coming through salt lake city. look at that picture yesterday with some snow and some rain. your weekend getaway now.

7:23 am
an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't play ...quite like i used to. but i'm still bringing my best. and going for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor... ...if switching... eliquis is right for you.

happy friday, everyone. and it is a happy friday looking at ginger zee and look how she looks at her little baby boy. it's a big day for adrian. 2 months old today. where does the time go, ginger? >> where does the time go? >> it just flies by. we'll be checking in with the family. >> can i tell you i saw an instagram picture of ginger doing a backhandspring on a trampoline. the woman is a superhero. >> adrian looks so comfortable right now. also right now the late justice antonin scalia's body lying in repose at the supreme court ahead of his funeral tomorrow. president obama and the first lady expected to pay their respects this afternoon. and pope francis and donald trump caught in a war of words about whether or not trump is christian. the gop front-runner joins us next. we have a big story about those hackers targeting your computers. we've got a warning for you. what you should do to protect your private information.
7:31 am
really important story coming up, george. but we are going to begin with donald trump caught in that exchange with the pope a day ahead of the south carolina primary. i spoke with him just moments ago. mr. trump, thank you for joining us again this morning. are you worried at all this confrontation will hurt you in this race? >> you never know, george. with me it's illegal immigration. we want to have the wall. we have to have the wall. we have to stop the drugs from pouring in and the illegal immigrants from just absolutely pouring into our country and somehow the mexican government's said that donald trump wants to -- is the front-runner, wants to stop all of this from happening and the pope made mention of it. i think it was a little lighter than mentioned than the press portrayed after i read a transcript but, you know, it's about illegal immigration, george. we have to have a border or we just don't have a country. >> so if you were president right now and you had the chance to meet with the pope as president obama did -- has, what would you say to him? >> well, i think i'd explain the
7:32 am
problem of the border and i'm sure he's getting the one side, mexico, we have a tremendous trade deficit, $58 billion trade deficit with mexico. in other words, they're making a fortune off of the united states and, you know, much of it is coming in illegally and i think i would explain the problems of illegal immigration, the tremendous crime that's ensued. the tremendous economic burden that we've got and the drug problem. i mean, i just won in a fantastic place called new hampshire. they have a heroin problem that you wouldn't believe and it's the number one question i got up there, george, all the time. first question is how do we stop the heroin from, you know, pouring in, and i told them i would do it because they really do have it and, you know, more so than most and we have to create a border. we have to have a strong border. the border patrol and the wall and everything else and i think i'd explain our side of the picture because our side of the picture is very correct but the mexican officials don't want the strong border because they're
7:33 am
frankly making a fortune with the way the border is right now. >> you know, you have -- you're not afraid to speak your mind praised putin and saddam hussein and drawn criticism from pope francis and the british and french prime minister and taken on president bush and governor hayley. are you concerned at all that you're alienating the allies you need if you become president? >> i never praised putin. putin said good things about me. >> you said he's tougher and stronger than president obama. >> no, i said two things. i said he's a stronger leader than president obama but that's not praise. being stronger isn't too tough. saddam hussein, i certainly never praised him but i did say he killed terrorists and i did say the war in iraq was a massive mistake. it was one of the great mistakes in the history of our country. we've totally destabilized the middle east. we have nothing out of it. we have wounded warriors who we love and 2 trillion we spent on it and nothing out of it and, you know, right now iran is taking over iraq and i said a
7:34 am
long time ago that this is something that we shouldn't be doing. we have destabilized the middle east. we have gotten nothing out of the war in iraq. >> you have also said many -- >> i never praised saddam hussein. i did say that saddam hussein killed terrorists. >> you have -- >> now iraq is harbor for terrorists. >> you said many times during the campaign that you were against the iraq war before it began and no evidence turned up to support that and yesterday buzzfeed released this clip from "the howard stern show" which showed you supporting the invasion. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. you know, i wish -- i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> now will you stop claiming you're the only one against the iraq war before it began? >> no, that was long before the war began and by the time the war began i was saying and i'm on record as saying that we shouldn't go in -- >> but you're not on record at all opposing the war before it began. there's simply no evidence of that, sir. >> well, there is evidence and
7:35 am
i'll find evidence because i was against the war and you can see the way i said that, that was long before the war started and that was an interview that was the first time i was ever actually asked that question. >> you said you were for the invasion. >> you could see i was not exactly strongly in favor. that's the first time it was ever asked but that was long before the war started. by the time the war started i was against and in 2003 you have evidence that i was against and i've been against it for years. i've been against it for years, george, and it was a mistake. it's something that we should not have done. >> we look forward to seeing that evidence of you being against it before the war began and thank you again for joining us this morning. >> okay, thank you very much. and more votes will be cast this weekend. >> uh-huh. >> all right, george. now we'll talk about that california mom and pta president who was framed by fellow parents planting drugs in her car. kelli peters is speaking out for the first time since the jury awarded her nearly $6 million in damages. abc's chris connelly has her story.
7:36 am
>> i won my lawsuit and it's basically finally all over. >> reporter: for kelli peters, vindication after a six-year-long nightmare. a warm-hearted pta mom from irvine, california, framed by scheming vindictive parents, a jury earlier this month awarding her $5.7 million in damages. what does that money represent to you? >> years of hard labor, stress, you know, changes, terrible changes. >> reporter: life altering changes that began in 2010 when this woman, attorney jill easter hurled wild accusations at her after her child was delayed at pickup. in 2011 her then husband kent easter also a lawyer made a call to police using an alias. >> i'm concerned one of the parent volunteers there may be under the influence or using drugs. >> reporter: the cop dispatched to the school's parking lot discovering these illicit items
7:37 am
in peters' car. >> i'm just thinking the whole world is looking at this right now and i said, please, they're not mine. >> reporter: tests showed the easters' dna on stuff in peters' car. that phone call, police traced it to this newport beach hotel. that man on surveillance kent easter. >> the pieces started to come together. >> reporter: kelli was cleared and the easters charged with false imprisonment for her bogus bust. jill copped a plea and it put kent away for 180 days. months later kelli's attorney deposing a defiant kent in this exclusive video. >> sir, did you knowingly participate in a scheme with your wife to frame kelli peters? >> no. >> reporter: yet he'd sing a different tune at the civil trial admitting under oath he planted those drugs. >> he also said kelli didn't do anything to my son. it was all made up.
7:38 am
that made me start crying. >> he tried to fall on his sword and say i admit it. i did it. i think the jury saw through it. >> reporter: hard to say when she might see some of that $5.7 million, but for now she's proud to have taken on her one-time accusers. >> all right, chris, thank you. coming up, new threat to your computer right now. hackers holding data hostage for big money. how you could protect your private information. come on back. hostage for big u money. how you could protect your private information.

8:36 am
want to do so what we did with melissa we gave her this nice soft wispy bang which helps to kind of like soften her face and add some shape to it too. >> were you a little nervous about taking off so much hair. >> not too bad, no. a great change, i really love it. >> it really -- hey, come on out. the other two, nancy, gabrielle. we want to see you all here. i got to tell you, we've done these segments over the years and i'm thinking, oh, you got -- you look great before. look wonderful now and are these things you think you're going to stick with. >> oh, absolutely. >> you're going to be able to do. >> absolutely. >> michelle, nice, nice and we got to thank peter and alvin at oon arvelo salon. the new issue of "allure" is on newsstands now. let's go outside to rob. fantastic. >> big georgia contingent. this is lydia from marietta. you have a picture of your grandma on a roller coaster. she doesn't look happy or is she? >> she's excited.

8:40 am
we've been saying -- we've even listened to chewbacca noises on the internet and he makes sounds very similar -- >> doesn't seem like he's feeling it right now. >> dario, you're not going to make any chewbacca noises now. >> is that when he's sleeping. does he snore? >> no, it's when he greets and just about everyone he meets is instantly his best friend and he just makes this strangest chortling yodeling woo-woo noises, it's quite unique even at the show when he ran into people he knew he was making his noises. >> a big future for him perhaps in the movies. >> yes. >> well, thanks for bringing him in. he is a doll. >> why don't you wake up? >> not happening. >> there you go. that'll do it. lyda, thank you. live in south africa at a wildlife preserve as we get ready for "gma's" safari adventure.
