7:01 am
deadly road rage. the former nfl player killed during a violent confrontation. first responders rushing to the scene trying to save him. the investigation right now. and that bombshell abc news exclusive. the missing california mom's husband sharing the moment he learned she was coming home. >> i said, you know what, buddy? i found mom. >> we have the phone call when he learned she was alive and the dramatic family reunion only on "gma" this morning. and we do say good morning, america, on this friday morning. and this "20/20" interview is something else. you are going to hear things that may change the way you think about the story. >> the family has been through so much, robin. it's amazing what they continue to share. and that incredible moment when the kids got to see their mom for the first time. >> keith papini is really opening up. made a lot of news, that interview. you know what else made a lot of news?
7:02 am
>> let's see. president-elect. >> president-elect trump. that's right. back on the campaign trail for what he's calling a thank you tour. kellyanne conway standing by. we'll hear from her in a moment. but first, let's get to tom llamas. he is in cincinnati where the president-elect made that surprise announcement about his choice for defense secretary. good morning, tom. >> reporter: a major announcement indeed, robin. good morning. three weeks pent up in trump tower and last night president-elect unloaded. this event in cincinnati just like his campaign rallies, impulsive and unscripted at times and trump even going after his enemies including hillary clinton. trump seeming to overshadow the big news he helped save jobs at the carrier plant, where he helped save so many jobs, and instead, delivering a raucous rally. overnight, president-elect trump back in his element. taking his post-election show on the road for a thank you tour. >> i'm here today for one main reason. so say thank you to ohio.
7:03 am
>> reporter: trump who after the election said it was a time to come together as a country back in battle mode. >> although we did have a lot of fun fighting hillary, didn't we? >> reporter: his supporters erupting into a chant of "lock her up." and just like he did during the campaign -- >> very dishonest. >> reporter: trump going after the media. >> i love this stuff. should i go on with this just a little bit longer? >> reporter: and defending some of his wall street cabinet picks. >> he put on a billionaire at commerce. well, that's because this guy knows how to make money, folks. >> reporter: the president-elect surprising the crowd and even his own staff with an impromptu announcement. >> we are going to appoint mad dog mattis as our secretary of defense. mad dog. he's great. >> reporter: the retired marine general has a reputation for
7:04 am
being relentless and outspoken. mattis led a marine division during the invasion of iraq and headed the united states central command from 2010 to 2013. he earned his nicknames mad dog and the warrior monk for his attention to military tactic and strategy. >> they say he is the closest thing to general george patton that we have, and it's about time. it's about time. >> reporter: as for secretary of state, that decision expected to come soon. the president-elect saying this about mitt romney, his one-time foe now a contender for the job. >> we got along very well. he was very, very nice, very nice in terms of his remarks afterwards, and i think it was very good. we have some terrific people and terrific people to come. >> reporter: we do want to mention retired general mattis likely will be confirmed, but it's not a done deal. he has to be out of the military for at least seven years.
7:05 am
mattis retired in 2013, and some democrats are saying they will block the waiver needed. >> yeah, they're saying they're not going to vote for it. to that clash between trump and clinton aides. it happened at harvard where campaign teams meet to go over the race, usually it's pretty civil. last night heated and personal. the feelings clearly raw. take a look. >> i would rather lose than win the way you guys did. >> no, you wouldn't. >> yes. >> no, you wouldn't. >> yes, yes. >> that's very clear today. no you wouldn't, respectfully. do you think i ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? are you going to look me in the face and tell me that? >> it did. >> do you think you could have had a decent message for the white working class voters? you think this woman who has nothing in common with anybody -- >> i'm not saying that's why you won, but that's the kind of campaign that was run. yes. >> how about, it's hillary clinton. she doesn't connect with people. how about they have nothing in common with her. >> i would just say hillary did win the popular vote. >> but she didn't win. >> he was the better candidate. that's how he won. >> let's have the debate.
7:06 am
>> let's not. excuse me. >> 2.5 million americans thought she was the better candidate. >> we're going to keep talking about the popular -- wait. i'm sorry. >> if you want to go back to the wrong track number. >> i just want to go back to the 270 or the 306 that we won because that's how you won the presidency and we did it. >> and senior adviser, kellyanne conway, joins us now. it did get pretty heated. thank you for joining us this morning. now, it's unlikely you'll ever win over clinton aides but how about her voters? it is a fact that president-elect trump lost the popular vote. how does president-elect trump reach out to that majority of voters who did not support him? >> george, he keeps doing what he said he promised to do on election night which is be the president of all americans including those who did not vote for him, and he is already reaching out to people in many different ways. look, i understand it was a bruising campaign. i understand the clinton team and most people in america never even thought about the possibility that the other candidate, donald trump, might win, but he did, and he won 30
7:07 am
of 50 states, and he won 1,600 counties, and turned 200 counties that president obama had carried over to the donald trump column. that doesn't happen because of a gym comey letter or doesn't happen because of media coverage. it happens when you have a message that connects with americans and you saw that message on display yesterday in indianapolis. donald trump before he's even inaugurated made good on the promise to keep american jobs in america. people want these kinds of results. and i just -- you know, the idea that people can't get past the grief, denial and anger stage and into the acceptance stages defies what secretary clinton and president obama themselves had said. which is this is our president-elect. >> i want to talk about that carrier deal. you talk about the bruising campaign and seemed to continue last night in cincinnati. you had that choud chanting "lock her up." "lock her up." >> although we did have a lot -- >> that's the way they feel and there were the officials who are in charge of such things in the trump administration who may look at that again, but donald
7:08 am
trump made very clear last week as the president-elect that he's moved on from that. that he's focused on -- more focused on things like health care, immigration, bringing jobs back to america, and keeping them here in the first place. >> you're suggesting now that the trump administration may actually pursue prosecution? >> no, i'm not suggesting that at all. that would something i would not be able to say, but i'm reminding everybody what he said last week, which is he's moving on to focus on the future, not the past and he has said to "the new york times" on the record he thinks that the clintons have suffered enough. of course, the department of justice, the different committees, the fbi perhaps can take a different look, but nobody expects and nobody is talking about that right now. i think yesterday was just a great day for him to say thank you to 18,000 people at a rally in cincinnati. thank you to carrier for working with this would-be administration and keeping these 1,000 jobs here in america. that's what people want and they voted for results. >> you know, talking about the carrier, "the wall street
7:09 am
journal" usually an ally of republican presidents had an editorial saying -- called ask the "trump's carrier shakedown." shakedown." his carrier shakedown, they wrote is a short-term political victory that will hurt workers and the economy if it becomes the norm for the next four years. are you worried about that? >> we don't look at this as a political victory. we don't look at this as political at all but a victory for the worker at carrier. you know, donald trump gave voice to his ability to the forgotten man and forgotten woman. he made an example of carrier from the beginning as one that perhaps could work with his incoming administration to keep these jobs here. this is the way -- this is the way things should work where you have private companies and the administration, frankly, working together to find a solution. this has been people's frustration with washington for decades is that you're not forced to solve anything. you're just forced to talk about it. you saw on display last night the way things are going to work in a trump/pence administration. the usa is open for business. >> we also heard a lot from president trump on twitter. he sent out the tweet saying he
7:10 am
would have won the popular vote if millions of illegal voters had not voted. that claim is groundless. isn't it irresponsible for a president-elect to make false statements like that? >> i think it's groundless for -- talk about fake news. the fake news is that somehow the popular vote is more important than the electoral college vote now. i mean, i watched abc and other networks are you religiously, george. all i saw was road to 270. i never heard road to popular. >> that's not what i asked. no one is questioning -- no one is questioning the victory. i said is it appropriate, is it responsible for a president-elect to make false statements like that? >> well, first many people are questioning the victory. you got people spending millions of dollars wasting money and time in the clinton and stein camps in wisconsin, michigan, and they tried in pennsylvania to recount. not everybody has, quote, accepted the election results but to your question, the president-elect has been talking to different people including kris kobach of kansas about voting irregularities or the number of illegal votes that may
7:11 am
have been cast, and i believe he based his information on that. >> there is no evidence that there were millions of illegal votes. zero. >> there's also no evidence that a recount is going to change the results in wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania, but we, the victors, continue to be -- we're the only people asked about the election results and about who voted and who didn't vote, but this whole discussion about the popular vote is -- it's frankly, you are know, it's frankly an outshoot by those who can't accept the election results as to why the election results where the people have spoken and given donald trump well over 270 electoral votes, 306 including michigan, wisconsin and pennsylvania that republicans have not won in decades, they're just trying to -- they're trying to deny him his rightful victory and i think those who won't accept the election results and are engineering this million dollar waste of money, millions of dollars waste of money in these states recounting the vote george, really should be asked the question, why can't you allow this president-elect to form his government the way that
7:12 am
president obama and secretary clinton had suggested they would like him to do? >> is that statement by president-elect trump true? >> i'm sorry? >> is that statement by president-elect trump true? >> well, he's been receiving information about the irregularities and about the illegal votes, particularly from sources, officials like kris kobach as i mentioned, but he is messaging to his supporters and to the rest of the country the way he feels. just the way the clinton team is pretending that the scapegoat in this election is jamie comey. pretending that a lack of an economic message, for those who feel their jobs are threatenthreatened is sufficient, a lack of a message that really gave a visionary uplifting aspirational way of looking at things in those closing days and hillary clinton's message was all negative. they're never asked that. we're just asked about donald trump's tweets and we're just asked about different things
7:13 am
that he says on the trail. there is no trail anymore. he's the president-elect. and i think what people will see is strong leadership in nominating mad dog mattis for secretary of defense. i think they'll see strong leadership in keeping those jobs in indianapolis. these are the results that america wanted. >> kellyanne conway, thanks for coming on and answering questions this morning. >> thank you. all right, george. we move on now to that new warning about another storm heading for the south as the region recovers from those devastating tornadoes and fires. rob, i know you're tracking it all. >> these storm also go right over the same areas. this was an ef-3 and fires around gatlinburg, tennessee, over 300 homes and businesses. that's damage there. today, the first time they will be able to go back into their homes. it will be dry today and tomorrow. beyond that not so sure. rain developing across texas. during the day sunday, another round. getting up into the storm zones as well. this could bring severe weather getting in through monday and
7:14 am
tuesday, rainfall amounts could exceed 6 inches of rain in some spots, behind this is the coldest air of the season. we'll talk more about that in about five minutes. george. we move on to that deadly road rage incident in louisiana where former nfl player joe mcknight was killed during an argument, the shooter in custody and mara schiavocampo has the details. >> reporter: he was a star running back. >> mcknight into ravens territory. >> reporter: first in college for usc. >> mcknight trying to dance to the outside. >> reporter: and then later for the new york jets. >> 107 yards. >> reporter: but this morning 28-year-old joe mcknight is dead. authorities believe the victim of a road rage incident in new orleans. the shooting reported just before 3:00 p.m. thursday. a witness saying she saw two men arguing before mcknight was shot. >> that man just got out and shot that man! >> reporter: first responders rushing to the scene, performing cpr on mcknight as police took the alleged shooter into custody. >> we have in custody and are interviewing the shooter in this
7:15 am
case who stayed on the scene, relinquished his weapon to our officers. an individual identified as ronald gasser, a white male, 54 years of age. >> reporter: now, this is not the first tragic road rage incident in new orleans. just this april, former new orleans st. football player will smith was killed in his car shot several times in the back. now, as for the suspect in mcknight's shooting police say they do expect to file charges and robin, mcknight does leave behind a young son. tragic story. >> it is. thank you, mara. now to a terrifying school incident, a 15-year-old utah boy walking into his junior high with two guns firing off a shot before his parents jumped in stopping a potentially deadly scenario. abc's linsey davis with all the details. >> reporter: this morning police credit a 15-year-old's parents noticing something wasn't quite right and springing into action
7:16 am
to prevent a disaster in the making. >> student with a gun the mueller park junior high. there was an active shooter under control now, possibly with a 12 gauge shotgun. >> reporter: 8:13 a.m. when police got the call. >> we have a kid with a gun. he has a gun. >> did he actually fire off any rounds? >> he did. >> reporter: a student with a gun at mueller park junior high school outside salt lake city. >> i was just, like, so in shock, and i just got under a desk and covered. >> reporter: police say a 15-year-old student armed with a 12 gauge shot gun and a 9 millimeter handgun shot one shot into the ceiling. his parents were already on the way concerned about his recent behavior and noticed two guns missing from their home and they rushed to the school, heard the shot and went toward the sound. >> a teacher and a student in that room immediately engaged him verbally and tried to talk him out of doing this. i believe those seconds played a big role in the outcome today. >> reporter: witnesses say the parents did disarm their son.
7:17 am
everyone at the school is safe now after they acted so quickly. the community is certainly thankful to them this morning. robin. >> absolutely. linsey, thank you. weaver going to go to amy now with the morning's other top stories, and we are still thinking of all those people in tennessee. >> it's a tough situation in tennessee. there the death toll, in fact, from those historic fires is now 11. mud slides and blocked roads have hampered the search for survivors in remote areas and today residents and business owners in gatlinburg are being allowed back into that area to survey the damage for the first time. well, russia's spacecraft carrying cargo to the international space station burned up in the atmosphere breaking up minutes after this launch. the unmanned ship was carrying food and fuel. it is unclear what caused the malfunction. well, princess cruise lines will pay a record $40 million fine after pleading guilty to pollution charges. authorities say five ships were illegally dumping wastewater and they say crew members conspired to cover up that process. the monthly jobs report

7:32 am
he is with us this mosh morning. good morning, matt. >> reporter: what was perhaps most jarring about keith papini's description of sherri's captivity was the inhuman conditions. almost no food, cold and she was shackled and hooded almost all of the time. cursed and kicked, and then as mysteriously as she disappeared, she reappeared thanksgiving morning. >> my home phone rang. i pick it up. and it was a very mixed emotion. it was my wife screaming in the background, yelling my name. >> reporter: it was the first time keith papini had heard his wife, sherri's, voice since she disappeared three weeks earlier. >> and a chp officer, he said i need you to be calm. i need you to be calm. >> he's talking to sherri. >> i think he's talking to me too. and -- but i already know it's
7:33 am
her. i can tell her voice. >> reporter: his wife calling from the cell phone of a police officer after she had been let out on the side of the road by her captors 150 miles from home, a chain around her waist, a bag over her head. >> so then i get the phone and, oh, my god, honey, of course, she's screaming, and it's very emotional. i love you. i love you. oh, my god. you're here, you're back. where are you? and then the phone gets, like, taken away from her like super quick. >> reporter: he heard her voice now keith rushed to see his beloved. finding her in the hospital with bruises to her face, her long blonde hair chopped off. a message branded into her skin. authorities now working feverishly to piece together the clues of what happened to sherri. >> she related that both of the subjects spoke in spanish the majority of the time of her captivity. >> reporter: the sheriff describing her abduction in excruciating detail. >> she was held against her will and was isolated. sherri's head was covered.
7:34 am
i will confirm that the suspects did brand her. >> reporter: my sense is if you combine all of the things going on with sherri of human branding, starvation, being brutalized or maybe even tortured, shackled, eyes covered is that you really are throwing all of the variables you would use to break somebody down, to destroy their previous identity and get them to your way of thinking, whatever that might be. >> reporter: but she wasn't destroyed. instead, she has reunited with her family. keith remembering the moment he got to tell his son that sherri was coming home. >> and i sat him down and i was on my knees. he was standing up and i said, you know, you know what, buddy? i found mom. and he got the biggest grin and and he started, like, you know,
7:35 am
where is she? >> sherri's now focused on recovery spending basically every waking moment with keith and those kids, but in her mind, she also never left them. keith told me in captivity sherri found a patch of cloth and that she cradled it as if it were her daughter, violet, and keith says that's one of the things that kept her going psychologically throughout that entire ordeal. >> but physically, can you continue to tell us how she is doing? >> she's doing better now but she was pretty banged up. we've seen pictures of her face, it was almost unrecognizable. a family friend who hugged her after the ordeal said that he could basically wrap his arms around her twice. she was so thin, she lost about 15% of her body weight down to 87 pounds, so she was banged up. >> yes, we've heard over and over again about the branding and the message. did they tell you at all what that message was that was branded on her? >> keith refused to talk about what happened. he said that there were multiple burns on her body. we don't know what they were, or if there was a message on them, or the purpose of those brands, but it certainly seems cruel
7:36 am
almost beyond comprehension. >> where does the investigation stand now? >> she didn't see them. she says she saw basically only their eyes so, investigators don't have much to go on. they are thinking of doing a composite sketch of her, but they are also trying to rely on her other senses. did she hear something nearby? a train, church bells, traffic. did she feel something? what was the room like, anything to get a clue to get them somewhere. >> you spent a lot of time with keith. you know, there are a lot of people that are wondering why be so public with all this? >> i think they needed to clear their name. there were so many conspiracies out there about keith being involved, about sherri somehow disappearing herself. about all of this being a hoax. they wanted to come to us, tell their story and for it to be out there and public. but one of the most -- one of the things that truly stunned me was how compelling keith was. he was so candid. so honest and one of the things you'll see tonight on this "20/20" is his description of sherri seeing those kids again. it is absolutely heartbreaking but joyous also. >> glad they're reunited.
7:37 am
great job. i know you have so much more you're going to share with that exclusive interview with him on a special edition of "20/20" that's tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern on abc. >> thank you, matt. very well done. we'll move on now because today marks the first anniversary of that horrific terrorist attack in san bernardino that left 14 dead, 22 seriously injured and this morning, many victims are still fighting for needed treatments, one of the big questions, who should pay? our chief investigative correspondent brian ross here with that story. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, george. the murderous rampage of that terrorist couple, syed farook and his wife, tashfeen forever changed the lives of so many in san bernardino, and many of the survivors are telling abc news they're going through a second trauma, a betrayal being refused treatment and therapy for their wounds both physical
7:38 am
and mental. amanda gaspard was the partner of the shooter, syed farook at the san bernardino county health department. >> we have an active shooter. we need an entry team now. >> reporter: he did not spare her in the attack. rescuers found her shot twice in the leg having lost half her blood. >> she tells me where she had been shot, she tells me that she's going to die and not to let her die. >> i was begging, please help me. please help me. >> i looked down at her and said you're not going to die today. >> reporter: amanda gaspard lived, but today, one year later, she is still in pain. told by the county claims administrator she says, that a surgery and other treatment she needs were too expensive under california workman's compensation guidelines. >> i was shocked, and i need a surgery. >> reporter: they won't pay. >> they do not want to pay for it. >> reporter: without that surgery, are you in pain now? >> yes, i'm in pain every single day. >> reporter: she is not the only one of the county employees in the room that day who say they are not getting what they need. >> my medications got denied. like just cut off in october. >> the process is denying everybody medication, therapy and surgeries.
7:39 am

dan abrams is here to lead us off, and we'll lead off with dalia dippolito called the black dalia after she was caught on camera, talking about murder for hire, and it's heading back to court for a retrial. real concerns she will get a fair day in court and let's take a look at the tape where she appears to pay an undercover police officer posing as a hit man to murder her husband. >> he gets two in the back of his head, and you're not going to have the opportunity to change your mind. >> i'm positive like 5,000% sure. i'm a lot tougher than i look. i know you think what a cute little girl or whatever. >> pretty powerful. convicted in that first trial but it was overturned. >> that's right. based on the jury being tainted. 6 during the jury selection process in the first case, one of the jurors, prospective jurors said something about her trying to poison her husband. the rest of the people who were sitting in the room heard it, and some of them ended up on the jury. the appellate court says that's unfair to them to allow them to

serve on the jury considering they heard that. now in this case, they are having additional jury problems. this time, they're trying to interview the jurors one by one. right, so they don't have that same problem. no big room, no big group. one by one. well, it turns out this time there was a door open apparently in the courtroom, so all the people waiting in the hallway, the prospective jurors, could actually hear some of what was happening inside the courtroom with the judge. one of the prospective jurors tells the judge, and he is rolling his eyes, so the judge is saying, oh, my goodness. we need to start this process again so it's been delayed to prevent the exact sort of problem that happened the first time. >> just close the door. >> that's what they did. the first thing they did is close the door. >> assuming they can pick a jury for the trial what is her defense in the retrial? >> i think it's going to be a little different in the sense that she may testify this time. she didn't testify in the first case and i think she's going to have to testify this time around. she's doing two things. number one, she's saying she was set up by the police and number two, she says, i thought it was part of a reality show. i didn't really mean what i said.

>> reporter: one ceo in particular is making a difference. marc benioff, a philanthropist and leader of the groundbreaking company salesforce, one of the fastest growing technology companies in the world. >> billie is one of my heroes. i mean i've loved her forever and her fight for equality is a fight that we share at salesforce. i strongly believe that ceos today need to fight for their employees, for their equality. >> as a visionary, marc knows that without bold leadership, be bold, positive change won't happen. >> reporter: at billie's leadership symposium marc received the inspiring leader award, one of the night's highest honors. >> we have to fight for all equality for one simple reason. i the path to our own happiness. it's our own elevation. it's our own elation. it's our own enjoyment of our life all comes through equality. >> reporter: marc made headlines when he opened his company's book, saw there was a difference in what he was paying men and
8:24 am
women and fixed it overnight. >> with one button a ceo can push that button and make a change and that's the easiest change you can make and say, yes, equality for all. we pay women and men the same and that's really what we're standing for and that's just one of many parts of our foundation of equality. >> seeing how he looked at the data, he made equal pay for equal work, you know, he brought the women up to par, that is huge. that sends a such a strong message to the world and to the people that want to go to work. >> together this dynamic duo is moving the fight for equality forward and paving the way for future leaders from all walks of life. >> this is about what you and me and you can do to make the world better and whether it's public schools or pay equity or volunteerism for your favorite nonprofit or church or synagogue or mosque, now is the time for all of us to do one thing and if we can do one thing i know the
8:25 am
world will be better. >> don't always dream. you still have to do it. dream big but then you do it. you can't just keep dreaming your whole life. i know some dreamers that they've drept their whole life and they haven't done anything either so you've got to make some goals and keep trying. >> yeah. >> good point. >> a great point. i know but every time i'm around billie she's a dear friend. you're just energized but what marc did was open the book, simple to see what you're paying your employees and equal pay for equal work so he's challenged other ceos to do that. you know that tennis match battle of the sexes was 1973. yes. >> it's being made to a movie. emma stone playing billie and steve carell. check out the resemblance. a picture that billie tweeted. >> let's go upstairs to lara. >> the one, the only john legend. we love him so. performing live and a big surprise. what's the name of the album? "darkness and light."

[ cheers and applause ] >> john, when last you were here you said about the new music it's the best of your career and the reviews say the same thing that this is your best work. >> this is your moment. >> i feel good. i feel good about it. the thing is you can't believe the artist when they tell you it's their best work because every artist thinks their current album is their best album because they just spent all this time working on it but a lot of my friends and people around me feel like we put something really special into this album and i'm just excited for people to finally hear it. the hardest part is just keeping it contained when you're finished, when you master it and are like, oh, and it's got to go through all this marketing and wait months for it to come out. >> what was different about it for you. >> i think just growing up and having been married for a knew years and having a baby and all those other things forms your

8:37 am
guitar for this. >> oh, sort of. i didn't really learn all the way. i just learned enough to where i could look like i was playing the guitar pretty well. >> how would you rate gosling on the piano in he was magnificent. he had to learn a lot more than i did because his character revolves around him playing the piano and he's like a serious jazz pianist and he had to look the part and spent a lot of time working on it and i was kind of jealous about how fast he learned to be awesome at piano. i was playing since i was 4. it's not fair. but he's so good at preparing for these roles and he's so focused and, man, i just feel lucky to be in a cast with emma stone and ryan gosling, incredible.

8:45 am
behavioral or anti-social behavior or excessive isolation and chronic bullying. these are all signs and signals and, of course, any overt threat, someone who is writing something or showing a picture of violence. >> without the overt threats, i mean, sometimes these behaviors can be triggered by other things as well but those are the kind of flags that go up. what should parents do when they happen. >> parents should take it seriously and get help immediately. don't ignore these signs and signals, get your child help. talk to the school. talk to local law enforcement. talk to a mental health professional but don't just think it's going to go away. if you're concerned about a behavior you're seeing, get help. >> gets a little trickier when it's someone else's child. >> yes. >> what can you do? >> you have to talk to that other parent. it is absolutely and critically important that parents talk to each other. if you're seeing signs and signals, do something about it if a parent isn't prepared to listen to that from you, then go seek help elsewhere but don't be
8:46 am
that person that walks away and thinking, someone else will take care of it or someone else will do something. do something yourself because if you don't take action, it could lead to tragic consequences. >> you have been doing so much to honor the memory of your son dylan. what do you hope comes out of this. >> i want parents to know that gun violence and violence is preventible when you know the signs. this isn't something that we should walk away from or look away from. it's something that we need to be up standards about and take action on because these are action that is can save thousands of lives. my son's death was preventable. other deaths are preventable as well. >> thank you for being on this mission. >> thank you, george. >> see the full psa at on yahoo! now upstairs to lara. our audience, so excited because this man, john legend, is about to perform live. don't go anywhere.
