wimbledon underdog ranked 772nd in the world, now preparing to face off against roger federer. who will win the david and goliath battle? and good morning, america. we have a lot of breaking news to get to, starting with the deadly terror attack in turkey. >> going to take a look now at istanbul's international airport. it's open again after those deadly blasts went off hours ago. take a look at what appears to be security video posted online showing one of the explosions. >> here's what we know right now -- more than 40 people were killed. hundreds injured after three attackers with guns and suicide bombs stormed the airport. no terror group has yet claimed responsibility. >> and here at home, security is being increased at u.s. airports from atlanta to new york. we have team coverage of all the latest across the globe. first, let's go to abc's terry moran who's outside the airport in istanbul. a warning, some of the footage
7:02 am
you're about to see may be graphic. terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. just a few minutes ago, i landed here at ataturk airport. came through the airport. you can still smell the fire damage, explosive residue. officials are telling us what happened. last night, around 10:00 p.m., the attackers arriving here in a taxi. armed with assault weapons. one of them was spotted, opened fire, and blew himself up. this morning, new video appears to show airport security footage from the lower level of istanbul international terminal as one of the bombs goes off. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: panicked passengers scrambling, running down airport corridors. [ sirens blaring ] >> reporter: in this video, one of the three attackers appears to hit the ground after being taken down by police fire. a policeman then appears to stand over him, shooting him again, before running away. then another massive explosion.
7:03 am
and a third explosion outside the airport. as peopled waited for taxis and greeted loved ones. it was just before 10:00 p.m. passengers rocked by three separate explosions and automatic weapons fire. >> people were shooting at one side. and we all ran the other way. then the bombs went off. and people started running the other way, and there was more shooting. >> reporter: two of the gunmen opened fire at a checkpoint outside the airport. the third attacker set off explosives in the parking lot. the injured rushed area hospitals in ambulances, vans and taxis. this morning, the airport is back in operation. as investigators continue working at the scene. turkey's prime minister says all signs point to isis being behind this attack. this is one of the busiest airports in the world. a major hub in the middle east. and istanbul has been the target
7:04 am
of four terrorist attacks this year alone. turkey used to be an island of stability in this region. but all that has changed. robin. >> it certainly has, terry. witnesses are speaking out now. >> we're going to talk to steven nabil, at the airport with his wife, returning from their honeymoon when the shooting began. steve is now working for abc news. tell us what you saw and heard when those first shots rang out. >> approximately right before 10:00, we had a flight come in from athens. we stopped at the airport. we had to leave the baggage claim area and leave the security area because we were not -- it wasn't connecting tickets. we had to go to other airline check-in counters. we had to leave and get toward the door. we went to the check-in area. our flight was a little later. so, we had to wait there. we sat by a restaurant area, it's called the cafe. it's approximately 30 to 40 yards from the door. the main door from the street.
7:05 am
that's when i left my wife with the baggage. i went to get some food for her from, there's a middle aisle, sort of a third level. so i climbed the stairs. i was getting pizza when i heard the first bullets. i looked across and i saw the people running. i realized it's an attack. my instinct kicked in. i ran as fast as i could toward that area that she was in. >> you must have been terrified being separated from your wife? >> that was the worst feeling ever, and i saw the sea of people flooding toward me. i was just pushing through them to get to her. i was praying to god she didn't leave the area. as long as i could find her, at least i could take her to safety. and then that's when i saw him in the corner. i saw the bullets flying. >> so, how long was he able to shoot? >> it was quite a bit. because the time it took me to come from upstairs all the way downstairs, to find her, to grab her, take her to -- there was still shooting going on.
7:06 am
i mean, we were in tunnel vision. i can't really estimate the exact time, but it was quite a bit. it was a few minutes he was spraying and it was nonstop. >> and you were holed up with some hot water in case he came your way? >> here's what happened -- i pulled her to the hallway. what the -- by the time the other passengers took to evacuate was the time i lost coming back their direction to find her. so we couldn't do that anymore. because we were alone in the court, facing his direction. so we had to go in the hall behind us, the hall was open. i figured we'll be sitting ducks in case he -- the fire kept going on. the bullets kept going on. i had broken into a salon. there was a salon. i broke in the salon with her. put her in a storage room, closed the door behind us. and that's when you heard the third blast then. which you saw in the video. i scrambled for some sort of a knife or something to protect her, and she was crying. i was putting my hand on her mouth trying to keep her quiet. in case he's roaming around and
7:07 am
he can hear us. that's when i found the tea kettle with hot water. i figured if he opens the door, my last resort would be dumping the water in his face, at least give her a chance to run while i wrestle him to the ground. that was the plan. that's when i realized we were just waiting, him walking in the door. we were about 30, 40 yards from where he was. and i figured, if there was a hostage situation. we didn't know how many people were coming to attack. if there was any sort of hostage situation, we would have been the first ones to go because we were right there. >> thank goodness you're okay. thank you for sharing your story this morning. steve nabil, thank you. >> such a chilling account. officials say this attack has all the hallmarks of isis. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross joins us now with more on who might be behind the attack. brian, there has -- has there been any kind of claim of responsibility? >> so far, this morning, robin, good morning, there's been no claim from isis, which today does mark a significant date.
7:08 am
it was two years ago this very date that isis came into being. with its leader al baghdadi being proclaimed the caliph. isis has left a trail of carnage. in just two years' time, isis has inspired, directed, or otherwise claimed responsibility for some 77 attacks against western targets, killing 351 people since then. that does not include istanbul and the thousands killed by isis in iraq and syria. >> isis territory is less than what it was. the attacks don't stop. people want to know, is there any end in sight? >> well, not so far. the great concern is the call of isis to carry out attacks during the muslim holy month of ramadan. for those who carry out jihad in that time. it's a message that officials fear has gained resonance with isis fol eers. it doesn't end until july 5th of
7:09 am
next week. >> all right, brian, thank you. let's get more from martha raddatz. martha, you've been talking to your sources. nati national security officials. as brian was saying, all signs here right now pointing to isis. >> that's right, george. it was clear within hours this was likely the work of isis. turkey's prime minister and u.s. officials certainly believe so. this is exactly the kind of place isis attacks, and exactly the international attention they strive to achieve. anytime you hit a transportation hub or an airplane, the impact of the bombing is magnified. isis is suspected of bringing down the airliner in egypt. and of course the attack on the brussels airport, george. >> and martha, you've been there, that border between turkey and syria is so porous. fighters have tried to go through turkey to syria. >> exactly, turkey borders both syria and iraq. where isis is operating. we followed in the footsteps recently of three british teenagers who arrived at the very airport that was attacked
7:10 am
yesterday, who then took a bus to the border and crossed into syria to join isis fighters. it was very easy for them to get there, even these inexperienced teenagers. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. here in the u.s., security is increasing at some airports. in response to the attack. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport in d.c. with the latest on that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. americans are in line. they're going through security. they are traveling. the reaction by the airports is different than the attack back in march in brussels. yes, new york is increasing patrols at its three airports. atlanta also increasing patrols. for other airports, it's also visibility and vigilance. that means an undercover officer may be wearing tactical gear. other airports are studying intelligence determining if they need to increase patrols. that raises questions again, do we need to move the security
7:11 am
out from the checkpoints to the front door, even out to the road? now, the turkish attack was in the baggage claim area. do we need to increase security there? all questions we're asking after another attack. >> okay, thank you, david. terror the key issue in the race for the white house. both hillary clinton and donald trump weighed in after the istanbul attack. abc's tom llamas has the latest. >> reporter: overnight, donald trump reacting to the terrorist attack in istanbul. >> it's bad. and we better get smart. and we better get tough. or we're not going to have much of a country left, okay? >> reporter: the attack in turkey coming as trump was taking on hillary clinton over the economy at a pennsylvania aluminum plant. >> it's time to declare our economic independence once again. >> reporter: in front of what looked like a mountain of garbage, trump accused clinton of trashing the economy. >> hillary is never going to bring your jobs back, folks. she's never going to bring your jobs back.
7:12 am
don't forget -- married to the man who signed nafta, one of the all-time worst, right. >> reporter: and accusing her of flip-flopping on ttp. which he initially supported. trump describing it details. >> the transpacific partnership is another disaster. done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country, just a continuing rape of our country. that's what it is. it's a harsh word. it's a rape of our country. >> reporter: in california, clinton striking a different tone, making this pitch to trump supporters. >> you really are upset about immigration? or you're upset about trade. but let's think about what we're going to do to create more opportunities for you, your children, your grandchildren. >> reporter: now, hillary clinton did not react on camera to what happened in istanbul. but she did say that all americans stand with turkey. and this morning, we're getting a preview of what donald trump's convention may look like. bloomberg politics reporting that legendary boxer mike tyson,
7:13 am
legendary coach mike ditka. former indiana basketball coach bobby knight and nascar ceo brian france are all going to make appearances. the campaign tells me that these are early talks right now, they'll possibly make appearances. slated. trump even tweeting out that mike tyson has not been asked to speak. but if he was, he would do a great job. >> he was up around midnight sending out that tweet. okay, tom, thanks very much. joining us now for his take on the race for the white house, nate silver, the founder and editor in chief of fivethirtyeight. he ran the table in 2012. we'll get your forecast now for 2016. you deal in probabilities. so what are the odds you're putting on the race right now? >> so, right now, we have hillary is about a 75% or 80% favorite. >> that high? >> here's how to think about it. we're kind of at halftime of the election right now. she's taking a seven-point, maybe a ten-point lead into halftime. there's a lot of football left to be played.
7:14 am
but she's ahead in every poll. every swing state. every national poll. both have a lot of room to grow. she's at 43%. trump's at 37%. but, historically, the last candidate to blow a lead this large was in 1988, michael dukakis. he had a big lead coming out in the spring, summer. wound up losing of course. >> he was up 17 points after the convention. let's break down how you get there right now. let's take a look at the electoral map. state by state. you think many more states may be in play than usual. >> it's been a crazy year politically. we see a few more states being in play. for example, arizona looks like a tossup. maybe georgia. maybe missouri, north carolina again. >> they had been safe republican states. >> right, we see arizona in particular. several polls show clinton tied or a little bit ahead. missouri, less polling. they show very close. if trump gains ground, maybe a state like maine, used to be a swing state.
7:15 am
not so recently -- >> and that's one state he could win at least one electoral vote. everyone will be skeptical this year because so few of us saw trump coming. back in august, you said he had about a 2% chance of getting the nomination, he got it. so, what has changed? why so confident now? >> well, for one thing, when i said 2% or 5%, or 10%, that wasn't based on the polls. trump was always ahead in the polls. don't try to outthink the pols and outthink the american public. trump has never really been ahead of clinton in the general election campaign. he did great job of appealing to the 40% of the gop he had to win the election, the primary. a lot different than winning 51% of 100%. >> very quickly, what's the big x factor that could turn this around? >> what if you have an economic crisis, a terrorist attack? we have seen some. they haven't helped trump that much. it's a huge number of undecideds or third party voters. when clinton is only at 43%, low
7:16 am
40s better than trump but she can't feel all that secured. >> nate silver, thank you. let's go to lara. thank you so much, george. at wimbledon, the cinderella story to watch, underdog marcus willis. defying the odds in the first round. set to go up against roger federer. also making headlines, and raising eyebrows, the tennis dress being called nike's nightie. this is the tiny dress causing big problems at this year's wimbledon, leaving little to the imagination. this outfit has received a slew of complaints from female players. some say the dress is too short, flies above the waistline and upsets play. fans took to twitter calling it a nightie. and writing, that swirly baby doll dress is a giant fail. you've made athletes look like little girls. nike reportedly sent an e-mail to 20 of its sponsor players. saying we need you to make a small change to the dress.
7:17 am
per wimbledon rules. some players attempted their own modifications. one tied a headband around her waist as a makeshift belt. another adding leggings. german ace sabine lisicki said after her first-round win, said that she didn't wear it because she didn't feel comfortable showing that much. >> i love it. it's nice and short so you can move around and be free with your movements. >> reporter: as for the number one seed, serena williams, she seemed to be enjoying it. instagramming, kinda in love with my wimbledon dress. the only problem, hers is from her own line. also getting attention, underdog marcus willis, ranked 772nd in the world, beating 54th ranked player berankis in an upset. the 25-year-old brit who lives with his parents, was about to give up his tennis dream only securing a spot in the wimbledon prequalifying rounds because someone else
7:18 am
dropped out. this afternoon, his fairy-tale continues. as he faces the number three-ranked player in the world, roger federer. >> i think it's a great, great story. i'm excited to be playing him, actually. >> five months ago, marcus willis ready to become a coach. now here he is playing federer. and getting cheered on by none other than andy murray. >> i love this time of year. >> i do, too. but look who is wearing wimbledon white. >> i've got it on, just slightly longer. a little bit. we also have a lot of white behind us at the rockies' stadium. coors stadium in denver, look at the hail that covered the field. they had a delay of game, obviously. they had to get that off of there. we'll see more hail and flash flooding. i have to tell you more about that coming up. i'll leave you with a look at the plains here. the sunny cities coming up. the sunny cities coming up. the sunny cities coming up.

7:32 am
law professor daniel markel, abc obtaining what could be key evidence in what police are calling an intricate murder for hire plot. surveillance video believed to show the professor walking into the gym in july 2014 just hours before his murder. watch, as outside, a light green sedan is driving around, switching from parking spot to parking spot. now watch as he leaves the gym. he gets back into his car and drives off. but look closer. what seems to be the same car follows him out of the lot. police say inside that car, the men accused of killing him. >> the driver's side window is all bashed in and he's got blood all over his head. >> reporter: markel has been shot in the head. driving into his own garage. >> any case where you have surveillance of bad guys following a victim, it's -- it's preplanned. they're attempting to figure out the most opportune place to shoot him. >> reporter: in court friday, one of the suspects pleading not
7:33 am
guilty. the other rivera has not yet made a court appearance on the murder charges. police say these newly released images show the pair at a pembroke pines atm, again in a green car after the murder. >> there's a lot of speculation. a coincidence or two. but nothing that will put my client in tallahassee, with a gun, responsible for this murder. >> reporter: police believe someone hired the men to kill markel. they're looking at his ex-wife's family as possible suspects, saying the family wanted wendi adelson and the couple's two young children to move to south florida. and that the divorce with markel stood in the way. >> we're continuing to investigate their connection to any family members. >> reporter: and still, no one in the adelson family has been charged. police say the family connection is not just a coincidence. they have cell phone records showing the brother's girlfriend and one of the suspects were in
7:34 am
communication around the time of the murder. and that shows both alleged killers were in the immediate area when markel was killed. >> we turn to dan abrams for more on this. police have suspected the ex-wife's family. but no arrests. >> that's right. when you look at the arrest warrant for garcia, it specifically lays this out as a motive. it says motive. the motive, they say, is that the family wanted the kids to be able to move down there and that he was in the way. the problem is that's all we know. we don't know of any other evidence against the family. and that's why the family hasn't been arrested. there's been no action against the family at this point. because all we know is that in the warrant for garcia's arrest it's listed. >> how powerful is the video? >> it's the video in connection
7:35 am
with the cell phone records and an eyewitness. it's all of those things together, they say, weaves together a very powerful case. it will be interesting about these relationships that gio, mentioned. you've got the brother of markel's ex-wife, who was allegedly having some sort of relationship with the defendant's girlfriend or ex-girlfriend, and that was the connection that led them to -- >> a lot of pieces to the puzzle. >> literally, i had to put together a map for myself in preparing for the segment of the relationships between people. that will make this a bit complicated as well. >> what about the defense's argument saying his client, garcia, there's no direct evidence? >> that will be a real defense. you know, which there is no dna evidence. they don't have sort of the smoking gun at that moment. but what they have is that surveillance video. and being able to link him and his co-defendant to that car, being able to link that car to the scene, that's going to be the key. >> we'll see what happens here. dan, thank you. we move on now to that intense search off the

california coast for a blue whale tangled up in hundreds of feet of fishing line. the whale managed to race into the ocean while still wrapped in the line but can't survive like that for long. abc's matt gutman is dana point, california, with more. good morning, matt. >> reporter: george, good morning. rescuers say they'll be back out there today. they describe the whale as being hog-tied. finding it will be like finding a needle in a field of haystacks. this morning, this 100-ton patient is eluding its rescuers. >> this is very unusual. very unusual. >> oh, his mouth's open. >> reporter: blue whales are the biggest creatures on the planet. and this juvenile was in distress. spotted monday off the coast of california. >> see how he's floating with his chin out of the water? that is not good. >> reporter: this whale watching boat spotting the whale and the commercial fishing gear and buoys it was dragging.
7:37 am
the whale hopelessly entangled. you can see the rigging but not the creature's tail. held down by the lines around it. captain dave anderson was part of the whale disentanglement team, carefully maneuvering near the animal the size of a submarine. >> it was painful to see this animal like it was, i won't forget it. >> reporter: the team tried to free the animal five times before giving up. what do you think the chances are of finding this whale at this point? >> i think we have a good chance of finding this whale. >> reporter: the sight of a lumbering and laboring whale is something anderson is seeing more often. >> the whales are coming closer to shore. they're getting entangled in the gear. >> reporter: the number of whale entanglements have risen by a factor of three over the past 18 months. scientists know that the whales are coming closer to the coastline, they're just not sure why. george? >> okay, matt gutman, thank you. let's go to lara. coming up on our big board. mark zuckerberg's neighbors in hawaii are not happy with him. we'll tell you why.

on the island of kauai, saying the wall obstructs the view, doesn't seem very neighborly. flip side, on big properties i've been on in hawaii, lots of land owners use fences. a lot of them have cattle grazing or for privacy. now, zuckerberg's kauai team says it mostly is a sound barrier. it follows all regulated rules and regulations. they say they're going respect the local land development, landscape environment and is considerate of his neighbors. i spoke to one resident. it's traditional lava rock. pretty standard, no big outcry. remember, every beach in hawaii is public. anybody can approach by water, paddleboarding right up to the beach in front of mark zuckerberg's house. >> i love the way becky says hawaii. >> i do, too. >> i can't say it like that. we do know that mark zuckerberg is concerned about privacy.
7:42 am
kind of ironic as the head of facebook. he's created a compound. he recently revealed that he's taped up the camera on his laptop. >> in facebook's s.e.c. filings, george, they revealed they pay $5 million a year for security. but, listen, up until five years ago, the guy was renting a really modest house in palo alto. if he's investing this much in privacy, it's because of the paparazzi. more sereses youly, my sources say creditable threats against him, his family, even isis supporters threatening him earlier on this year. putting the tape on the webcam, it's a little paranoid. lots of people do it, including james comey, the director of the fbi. this is a big target. the guy's worth just south of 50 billion bucks. put some tape on the webcam. >> becky worley, thanks very much. we get into surprising sleep remedies for insomniacs. it was trending on the "wall street journal" site. i want to bring in jen ashton.
7:43 am
senior medical contributor for more on that. lots of good tips. the one that surprised me was the simplest i guess, do nothing. >> right, first of all, let's take a macro view here. not true medical insomnia. we're talking about occasional i think the concept of do nothing is really an important reminder for doctors, health care providers, patients alike. because sometimes less is more. it's what we call watchful waiting. i do it all the time with my patients before jumping into a treatment. which sometimes can be worse than the problem itself. just take a step back, relax, see what's going on. now, when it comes to waking up in the middle of the night, the do-nothing concept means don't reset your schedule. don't compensate the next day, even though you're feeling it. go about your normal schedule. it's really important. >> i think almost all of us here at "gma" break that rule. we love our naps.
7:44 am
really, you're saying, don't try to sneak in that extra power nap, it's not going to help? it will hurt? >> exactly. what most people when they're up a couple of nights in a row, in the middle of the night, what do they do? they sleep later if they can the next day. go to bed earlier. take a nap. actually, you're interfering in your body's own circadian rhythm. power through. try to stick to the schedule. that gives you a better chance of having them work themselves out. >> my schedule includes naps. >> i do love those afternoon naps. but if it does create a long-term problem, we have to listen. dr. jen, we thank you. that was an interesting article. we're going to go now to former republican presidential hopeful mike huckabee paying through the nose for using a certain song without permission at a rally he held for kentucky county clerk kim davis. take a look. ♪ rising up back on the street did my time took my chances ♪
7:45 am
>> all right, so, we all know the song "eye of the tiger" from survivor. there's matt dowd, he's joining us, and how much did huckabee have to pay and why did he have to pay? >> well, as you remember, "eye of the tiger" was made famous in "rocky 3." he had to pay it looks like around $25,000 for copyright infringements. he didn't get the rights to the song. he had to settle out of court. for 25 grand. it looks like he ended up the same fate of clubber lang. at the end of "rocky 3," knocked out on this one. >> this kind of thing happens all the time. musicians often get prickly because politicians use their songs. it was a running joke on "veep" this season. let's take a look. >> also, sir, some bands we haven't used. sting, bruce springsteen, sent two letters, and enya. >> enya? send her [ bleep ] a cease-and-desist letter. >> the enya is a new one. this does happen all the time, matt. >> it sure does. in 1984, bruce springsteen stopped ronald reagan from using "born in the usa."
7:46 am
i remember in 2000 tom petty did a cease and desist for i won't back down with george butch. it happened in 2008. it happens a lot. >> i see becky chuckling in the top box. matt, i want to ask you. you're savvy politically. how important are these songs? do they make a big difference? >> these songs are real important. they sort of create the pomp, circumstance, pageantry. and the symbolism in the course of the campaign. the songs started in 1840, "tippecanoe and tyler, too." was a song. "happy days are here again" was a song fdr used. "high hopes," jfk. these become a really part of it. i have a suggestion for this year. patsy cline, "crazy." which is actually a reprise of the ross perot song. >> written by willie nelson. nonetheless, matt. bringing it all full circle.
7:47 am
>> we should all have our own music. >> i'm making everyone a play list. thanks to matt, dr. jen ashton, becky worley. all of you guys, great job. coming up, our hot shot of the day. paula bringing us the florida woman becoming a huge sensation. with her impromptu performance of the national anthem. ♪ were so gallantly streaming >> you got to hear this one. romptu performance of the national anthem. ♪ were so gallantly streaming were so gal latly streaming ♪

7:52 am
i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.
