7:03 am
this one. it's considered one of the more tame attractions for families, even young children. that is what makes this deadly accident so terrifying. overnight four people killed in an amusement park accident. two men and two women died when a raft overturned on the thunder river rapids ride in australia. the water ride malfunctioning, throwing people from the raft and trapping others underneath. >> one of the rides have sustained a -- some sort of malfunction, causing two people to be ejected from a ride. another two people were caught inside the ride. >> reporter: park workers rushing to help the injured. horrified witnesses at the theme park describe the chaos after the incident. >> we just heard the guys in front of them flipped off. like, they turned around and saw the whole thing flip over. and heard everyone screaming. she came out hysterically crying and then two people that worked here took her away. >> reporter: normally the ride

7:05 am

7:06 am
his getaway, stealing two different getaway cars. >> i'm about to steal another car like right now. this is gonna be intense. >> reporter: jonathan and his pregnant wife had their car taken from them at gunpoint. >> he's got an assault rifle and he tells us to get out of the car. >> letting you all know this is real, see that's a gun. that's the real deal. >> reporter: polly, standing on the side of the road watching the car-jacking, leg. >> my boyfriend said, get down, get down. so i got down, but i had already been shot. >> reporter: vance displayed his own injuries on facebook. >> wow, that really hurt. see, i'm bleeding where the police shot me. >> reporter: police are warning the public that if they see this man to stay away. he's armed not only with an ak-47 but has a communicable disease that he's willing to
7:07 am
>> oh, jim, thank you. the race for the white house two weeks to the day till election day and hillary clinton is leading in the polls and calling on her top surrogates including president obama to make her case. as donald trump takes media coverage into his own hands. abc's cecilia vega is here with all those details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. two weeks to go and it is time for the closing arguments. donald trump is going after the immediate yoo also the. and those polls, claiming that they're rigged. hillary clinton is feeling so confident right now she's happy to let others do the attacking for her. is rigged launched one of his famous attacks on the media overnight. >> these people are among the most dishonest people in the world, the media. >> reporter: and he's now trying to cut the media out of the equation altogether. launching a tv show on his facebook page, his aides there inside trump tower anchoring coverage leading up to his nightly rallies. the inaugural broadcast, not without some hiccups. >> what's going on? >> give them a second. it's all right.
7:08 am
>> reporter: on the other side, hillary clinton feeling so confident, she's now leaving her heavy hitting to others. from elizabeth warren. >> get this, donald. nasty women are tough. and on november 8th, we nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever. >> reporter: to joe biden. >> i'd like to take him behind the gym if i were in h i mean, all kidding aside, wouldn't you? i mean, for real. >> reporter: even president obama getting in on the action on "jimmy kimmel." >> but what we haven't seen before, i think, is somebody questioning the integrity of elections and the will of the people. >> reporter: trump landing a spot on kimmel's mean tweets. the president all too happy to play along. >> president obama will go down as perhaps the worst president
7:09 am
states, exclamation point. @realdonaldtrump. well, @realdonaldtrump, at least i will go down as a president. >> reporter: yeah, ouch. so clinton is now feeling so confident she's not just campaigning for her own win on the top of the ticket but also for downballot candidates, too. both clinton and trump are in that battleground of florida today, where clinton has a lead in the polls, george, and voting is already under way. >> okay, cecilia, let's dig into the polls right now. our latest tracking poll out shows clinton holding that 12-point lead over trump. want to bring in jon karl to talk about where things stand and jon, clinton is really solidifying her hold on the race right now. >> reporter: absolutely. especially state by state where it really matters. our partners at fivethirtyeight now give hillary clinton nearly 84% chance of winning the election. and, george, understand why, take a look at our abc news race ratings. of course, the red states are those that are advantage, donald
7:10 am
blue states, advantage, hillary clinton. right now, just in the states where hillary clinton is already leading, she gets to 308 electoral votes. that's more than enough to win the presidency. >> of course, it's possible that there's a massive shift that changes everything across the board. but absent that, let's look at what the most plausible path is for donald trump to get those 270 electoral votes. >> reporter: this is the way the trump team sees the race in their path. they take this map, they say they'll hang on to the traditionally red states out and arizona, convert nevada, win nevada, win the state of florida, they're still not there yet. win the state of north carolina. and then win the state of ohio, hang on to iowa, they're still not there yet, george. but then they win the state of new hampshire. that gets them to 269-269. then they have their eyes on the second congressional district of maine. a single electoral vote that would get them to 270 as you can see. a very narrow path to victory.
7:11 am
four of those states, nevada, north carolina, new hampshire and pennsylvania, just about every public poll in the month of october has her ahead right now. and the early vote has started. >> reporter: yeah. and the early vote is not looking good for donald trump. we already have about 7 million americans that have voted. 1 million voted just yesterday. we don't know how they voted but we do have some information on who has voted. and if you look at the state of nevada, 52% of the ballots cast have been cast by democrats. only 30% by republicans. far outpassing more democrats where when they won the race four years ago. north carolina, 55% of the ballots requested have been requested by women. and as you know, we have a big gender gap in this race. women are voting overwhelmingly for hillary clinton. >> okay, jon, thanks very much. >> all right, thank you, jon. let's bring in matt dowd. how are you doing, my friend? >> michael, i'm great. how are you? >> i'm good. we just heard jon talk about the poll numbers. and it seems like donald trump has a big uphill climb.
7:12 am
we saw how tough it could be for him, though. >> no candidate in modern times has come back being this far down at this far late in the process. nobody has ever done it. i think it will akin to the bills comeback against the oilers about 20 years ago. >> i was an oilers fan, yes, i do. >> four touchdowns down. in the fourth quarter. and they came back. he'll have to channel his inner doug flutie and need more than one hail mary. probably a couple of hail marys and a few our fathers. >> that's a lot to ask for. >> yes. >> our tracking poll has hillary clinton up by 12 but the just released cnn poll has her up only by 5. people want to k such a major difference? >> i think it's important for the viewers to look at this and if i were everybody, i would take all the polls, average them and get to where the number realistically is. i think it's probably around seven or eight. when you have a seven or eight-point lead, you will have polls that are real, that are true, that will have her at 11 or 12. and polls that have her at four or five. if the number sits in the middle, that's why you get those two polls. >> we heard in cecilia vega's report, elizabeth warren hammering trump about those
7:13 am
yet, in the new cnn poll, it shows trump is still getting 41% of women voters. does that tell you anything? >> even in a large electoral loss in a national loss, donald trump's going to get 55, 57 million votes in this election. even in a loss. and of that number he's going to get 25 or 30 million women votes in this. part is not just donald trump but it's a comparison between hillary clinton and many of those women dislike hillary clinton more than they dislike donald trump. >> jon, one of the things that the trump team seems to be counting on right now is that there's some kind of a systematic bias in all of these public polls. >> they think these polls are overstating democrats. they believe that there is a basically a hidden donald trump vote that is out there. a sort of silent majority to borrow nixon's phrase, that will carry him through. but, george, you would have to believe that all of these polls are off, including the state polls. >> okay, two weeks from today we will find out. now to bad weather on both coasts this morning. we're feeling the chill in times
7:14 am
>> robin, look at this. the lightning in newport beach, california. something you don't see every day. the video showing you there was a san diego high school football student or a football player that was struck by lightning. thankfully he is okay this morning. and that was just the first storm. there is another storm on the way. that's the one that went through. this one will impact parts of central and southern california by thursday into friday. look at some of those storms at 4:00 a.m. you could see some mudslides in some of the burn areas. and a quick look, robin, that freeze watch and frost advisory. it goes all the way from virginia up to massachusetts. >> oh, boy, we'll keep an eye on that. i know you will, ginger. thank you. now to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with the controversy over soldiers' bonuses. >> that's right. we have new details after the pentagon ordered some veterans to pay back the bonuses they received for serving in iraq and afghanistan. members of congress say they're outraged. but "the l.a. times" reports the california national guard told lawmakers about this issue two years ago and congress did nothing about it. thousands of soldiers have been ordered to repay the money
7:15 am
official handed out payments the soldiers didn't qualify for. a british airways flight from san francisco was forced to divert to vancouver. 25 people had to be checked out for possible smoke inhalation. no confirmation of the source of the problem on board. militants have launched a four-hour attack on a police academy in pakistan. at least 59 cadets and guards have been killed at the facility in quetta near the afghan border. have claimed responsibility. and back here in this country, four teenagers are under arrest in philadelphia after a string of random attacks on the campus of temple university. surveillance video showing there a mob of up to 200 people assaulting and robbing students after they couldn't get into a local theater on friday. finally you don't want to see this on your commute and we certainly don't suggest you doing what this man did. he chased after his car, look at him, on the freeway. he had pulled over but forgot to
7:16 am
if not for a sign that eventually stops the car from rolling, this could have been a lot worse. and, of course, those drivers, thankfully, slowed down. but there he is, look, still running after his car. the other drivers did -- were able to avoid hitting him, thank goodness. i don't know what he thought he was going to do. did he think he would catch the car? >> he's been watching a lot of movies. somehow get in and stop the car. >> let's just say he wasn't thinking. >> he wasn't thinking. and still think, though. that was from the thinking of the other drivers. >> good point. thank you. >> i appreciate that, amy. now, all eyes are on cleveland tonight. the indians are hosting game one of the world series against the cubs. and right across the street, the cavaliers are getting their nba championship rings. our cubs superfan paula faris is there in the middle of all of the chaos. good morning to you, paula. >> reporter: good morning, michael. that ring ceremony taking place here at quicken loans arena.
7:17 am
played at progressive field. they changed times to accommodate the cleveland fans. and the fans feeling the winds finally blowing in their favor. tonight begins the tale of two cities, two teams in the best of times after decades of the worst of times. baseball gods are saying about this matchup? >> the baseball gods are probably really happy right now. >> reporter: the chicago cubs and the cleveland indians both hoping to break their curses and taking extra precautions. >> you want to wear the same underwear. you don't want to have to change your underwear out. i mean, you wash it,ut >> reporter: the cubs dubbed the lovable losers haven't won the world series since 1908. but cleveland fans say chicago might be getting a bit greedy. in the past 50 years chicago has won 11 major sports championships. cleveland, only one. >> cleveland is a city of champions once again! >> reporter: and that was just a couple of months ago when the cavaliers finally broke that losing streak. stephen king even tweeting enough with the cubs!
7:18 am
cleveland indians? go, tribe! cleveland essentially has been universally mocked as the "mistake by the lake." even movies like "major league" poking fun at the indians. >> every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish last. >> reporter: but now a renewed feeling of possibility. while much of america is pulling for the cubs, you have george stephanopoulos on your side. >> i'll take it for sure. >> reporter: so rementioned the move is i have "major league." cleveland fans were pushing for charlie sheen to dress up like his character and low out the first pitch. he said he would be honored if asked. but last night, he said he couldn't make it. so george, start warming up. >> i'm ready. coco's real answer is who is he? >> i don't care how many games you win, change your underwear. >> let's go to ginger. >> michael, decent tonight weatherwise. not as great tomorrow. your local weather in 30 seconds.

"i was 20 years old and had no idea there was an off the record or on the record. i was naive." jackie says she felt like she
7:35 am
felt pressured by the magazine to participate in the story. and that when a friend of hers mentioned her concerns to the reporter, sabrina erdely, erdely responded, there is no pulling the plug at this point. the article is moving forward. it became their most read noncelebrity story ever. erdely highly critical of the uva administration including former associate dean nicole eramo. how would you describe how "rolling stone" portrayed you? >> it made it look like i used the trust of young women to cover up rain -- rapes. and that was so far from anything i would ever do. it's just unbelievable to me. >> reporter: eramo is suing erdely and the magazine for over $7 million saying she was painted as a chief villain. jackie disagreeing with the article's portrayal of eramo in her deposition, saying the dean never discouraged her from reporting the alleged assault, quote, she wanted to see me get some kind of justice. since its publishing the

because these four -- these police officers ride-alongs are very important. you're talking about community outreach, showing the community how important police work is. and your also looking at recruitment, whether people who say they're going to be police officers actually want to do the job. >> well, being shot at will help you figure that out. >> oh, absolutely. you're talking about 14 that went through this car. one of the bullets went right between the passenger and the officer. this is dangerous. >> yeah, very much so. of course, if you're going to be with police officers. we see this all around the country, ride-along programs. what's being done to keep civilians safe? >> they'll look at this and look at this video and they're probably going to use this training video across the country because, in fact, this particular department is going to be using this video as part of their training. and also, you gotta look at
7:43 am
this officer in this case had what they call a soft bulletproof vest. she did not have anything on. so i don't believe that they're going to look at this and say there there's not any change coming. i think they'll have to look at that and say we'll have to do something. >> protect the passenger a little more. >> absolutely, gio, thanks so much. okay. hit it, lily. hit it. ? is it too late now to say sorry ? >> the biebs' popular song "sorry," words some of his fans may want to hear aer singer walked offstage mid concert in edge over the weekend. here's a video of him posted on youtube. >> the screaming during these breaks has got to stop. >> drop the mike moment. former editor in chief of "people" magazine and our dear, dear friend larry hackett. >> good morning. >> is here. this is not the first time. >> it's not. it's not. and, you know, i think he's going through pop star growing pains. there is a new movie out called "eight days a week." about the beatles.
7:44 am
that wasn't so bad. look, he's growing up and going through this for seven or eight years right now. and he's trying to bring his audience along. and they're not ready to go. i think he has to be able to withstand this. i think like you said though we've seen these petulant outbursts before. we'll probably see them again. and, you know, he was having a bad night. >> he said i want to connect with you in the break so stop screaming. i want you to hear what i have to say. but these are young kids at a concert. they're his beliebers. that's what they call them. >> exactly. >> at what point do you think there is a point where these kids say enough is enough. >> the kids, no, i don't think so. he refused to do selfies a while ago and had his teenage bad years where he was misbehaving all over the place, and they withstood that. they'll withstand this. the people many manchester may be upset. he came back out and apologized so all is going to be forgiven. i think the trip will be for everyone who became a pop star or a teen idol.
7:45 am
he's doing the weird thing. he's trying to drag them along. usually they kind of sit back and let it happen and the fact is if you look at the beatles, the audience does mature eventually and if you're worth it they'll stay with you. if not you get added to the pile of teenage pop ex-stars. >> you matured. does your audience mature along with you? >> people screamed for me and then they stopped. >> he does make good music. >> i just want to say. >> i'm curious, do you guys, cokie, gio, do you have any favorite bieber songs? >> who? >> i knew cokie would -- cokie. >> did you say elvis? >> elvis. well, gio, i know you do. >> "love me tender." >> oh, yeah, "beauty and the beat." when they comes on. >> "beauty and the beat."

8:15 am
leading cause of death in the first year of life. there's been no movement in about 20 year, so the big message from this is in the same room but not in the same bed. in the same bed there's worry about smothering. you also don't want to feed your baby or fall asleep on a couch or an armchair. breastfed babies, half the risk of those who aren't, and a pacifier can reduce the risk. >> a pacifier. how so? >> they think it may just keep the baby a little more alert. if it falls out you don't have to put it back but it's interesting. >> all right. so you're going to give us an example how many times do you see things that want to be beautiful and comfy but what's safe? >> you look at this and think, oh, my, it's so cozy and comfortable. it's exactly the wrong way to go. so let's make this safe. you want to get rid of the blankets, okay. those go in the basket. get rid of the pillow. >> all right. >> get rid of these nice lovely stuffed animals. >> i know. >> okay. you want to have a nice firm mattress, a tight fitting sheet and put the baby down on her back to sleep, and that is the
8:16 am
the baby. what do you suggest? >> okay, so a couple things, first make the house comfortable so that you are comfortable wearing just a light outfit then you can put your baby down in one more layer than you would wear. so it can have a onesie and then a zip-up, okay, but no blankets because the blankets can entangle and can occasionally smother. >> just layer like we do. they're just like us. >> it may not be the way you like to sleep but the safest for your baby to sleep. >> that's what's most importa thank you, rich. coming up, "dancing's" booting couple maureen and artem are here live. come on back.

>> okay. they're going out. they're going fast, lara. >> all right, ginger, thank you so much. and now we're going to talk about the best ways to prevent joint pain. i had to have surgery and my hip replaced because of a congenital condition but a lot go through -- how do you say it. >> argue throwscopic surgery. >> thank you, osteoarthritis, big problem. good news there are ways to strengthen the body and help avoid invave we're going to get into that with todd, my physical therapist in a moment. some very simple exercises i promise will help you but first here's the back story. >> i know all too well severe joint pain can be absolutely debilitating. >> oh, my god. it's so hard. >> osseoarthritis, the most common form of joint pain affects 27 million americans. almost 20% of them are under the age of 60. it is painful and it is the leading cause of joint replacement surgery.
8:44 am
is impossible to avoid. the simple result of growing older. but that's not true and doctors say there are ways to prevent or at least put off the worst of osseoarthritis. >> the prevailing thought is that if you keep your muscles strong, flexible and in good balance, you're going to prevent abnormal joint stresses. >> reporter: although doctors cannot always predict who will get osseoarthritis. they think certain kinds of exercise, though, can go a long way towards helping the body. >> i important things when it comes to exercising is to be assessed. to make sure you're doing exercises that are appropriate for you. >> all right, we're joined by my physical therapist todd wilkowski. thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me. it's been three months since my surgery, up, moving. i ran two miles yesterday and a lot of this is -- well, it's all about exercise. and what we're talking about today is exercising, when you have osseoarthritis to hopefully
8:45 am
how important is exercising? >> exercise is important because it brings blood flow to the joints and to the musculature and also important for weight control. we know that when someone is carrying a couple extra pounds for each extra pound they carry it increases the stress that they're hit by six pounds and three pounds of extra stress at the knee joint if if you're feeling those aches and pains just getting up and moving can really make i difference, a couple pounds, you had ultra g treadmill and took away some of my body weight to run so it was less pressure on the joints, the difference it makes is unbelievable. so getting up and moving is critical. >> it's critical and like you referenced the ultra g, to actually understand what it feels like to take a little bit of that weight off and how much better the joints actually felt when you were exercising there. >> all right, so let's talk about some myths. you'll be our myth buster. there are a lot of questions people have. first i want to say arthritis is not just for old people.
8:46 am
active people so a lot have asked those questions, what's the deal. why so young, i know i'm only 26 but it happens so we're here to help you with important information. number one, here's a myth, guys. we want the audience to participate. tell us if you think it's a truth or myth. cracking your knuckles causes arthritis in your joints of the hand. most people think that's a myth. i got a couple -- todd, the real answer. >> it is a myth. [ cheers and applause ] even though i tell my children otherwise, because i can't the popping at the dinner table, it's actually a response of -- a release of gases within the joint. it's -- >> it's no big deal. >> to big deal. no scientific evidence to back up that it causes arthritis. >> okay, myth number two, heat is better than ice for sore joints. is that a myth or is that true? heat is better than ice for joints? a lot of people think it's a myth that heat is better.
8:47 am
what do you say, todd. >> it's a myth. it actually -- it actually depends on the time of the day when you're using it. ice usually better in the evenings or after someone has been active on a joint and it's inflamed. it helps alleviate the pain. we usually recommend heat earlier in the day to warm the joins up or prior to exercise >> that's the way we do it and then ice. let's get up. we want to show you a couple of quick exercises. oh, wait. they're saying we have one more myth buster. when it comes to exercise, no pain no gain. is that true or a myth. >> what do we got? >> we got a mixed bag. >> it is a mixed bag. there's actually some truth to that and myth as well. >> all right, everybody wins. >> what's the deal? >> the truth is, a little bit of muscle soreness is normal. pain and soreness you experience for 24 to 36 hours after exercise in the muscles, good. intense sharper pain that you can get in the joint, not so good.
8:48 am
to avoid that exercise and, you know, seek attention from a medical professional. >> that throbbing, trust me, you'll know it. they're very different. that's exactly what we discovered. we'll have to do our exercises and do them and put them on our website because we've run out of time. thank you for all the myths and thank you guys for helping us participate. so much great information out there. really important to know so we'll definitely post that. coming up, cupcakes. after a workout who doesn't need
