7:00 am
breakfast is on mcdonald's. >> thank you very much. that is the news for now. >> be careful as you head out the door. good morning, america. a major storm hitting the northeast, 11 states under advisories as schools close and millions get ready for a dangerous commute this morning. new warnings right now. fight night in new hampshire. hillary clinton and bernie sanders come out swinging in their first one-on-one showdown. >> if you've got something to say, say it. >> sanders digs in. >> she has the entire establishment or almost the entire establishment behind her. >> while all kinds of battles break out on the gop side. donald trump and ben carson take on ted cruz calling him out for
7:01 am
>> to dr. carson, i guess probably i was the one that was hurt most by it. >> the republicans prepare for the abc news debate in new hampshire. and megyn kelly fresh from her own debate firestorm here live with her take on the race for the white house. uber alert. criminals may be using the popular service to kidnap your kids. a famous hollywood director's daughter says she was nearly taken by someone pretending he was her driver. >> it was very, very scary. >> she speaks out only on "gma." an abc news exclusive. on the eve of the biggest game of the year, the nfl commissioner tackling attacks on his league about safety. >> they are risks in anything in life. >> if you had a son would you want him to play football? >> with super bowl sunday almost here the panthers and broncos ready to go big. >> and a big surprise on the way.
7:02 am
good morning, america. happy snowy friday in times square. of course, we can't wait for the big super bowl surprise, the game too. >> yeah, there's that. >> robin is out in san francisco going to bring us that exclusive interview with nfl commissioner roger goodell. how is it going out there, robin? >> the game too. i got that, george. we're having a good time. #goodtimes. here at the nfl experience and have a lot coming up. there's been so much in the news about safety in the league and the commissioner is answering our questions this morning. and there's a question about the weather as you know, amy, of people trying to get here from the northeast. going to be tough for them today. >> that's right, robin. right to that monster storm hitting the northeast. a treacherous commute for so many. rob marciano is here starting us off with the very latest in a snowy times square. >> hi, amy, yeah, it's coming down pretty good. wet snow in new york city but
7:03 am
is piling up and it is a slick, slick commute. visibilities around long island where some of the schools are closed. schools closed in boston. further east you go, the heavier it will be and that's where we'll get most of the know today and ends fairly quickly. the timing as we look at the winter advisories and also the winter storm warnings. it'll end from west to east, maybe about noontime from philly to new york and then 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 in boston where you could see 4 to 8, maybe 10 inches of snow there. low visibles too and delays at the airports. more about this storm later in the program. amy, george, back to you in come on in. to the race to the white house, "your voice, your vote." hillary clinton and bernie sanders face offend one-on-one for the first time last night, lots of tense moments in their final debate before the new hampshire primary. with the latest poll showing a big 15-point lead for sanders. abc's cecilia vega up in durham, new hampshire, with all the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. we have not seen a debate like this before.
7:04 am
exchanges in this race so far, one jab after the next last night. hillary clinton, as you said, down in those polls and she came out swinging. they came to fight. >> enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. >> reporter: the final debate before they go head-to-head in the nation's first primary and overnight hillary clinton and bernie sanders went pound for pound. >> she has the entire establishment or almost the entire establishment behind her. >> i've got to just jump in here because honestly senator sanders is the only person who i think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. >> reporter: clinton attacking sanders for suggesting that she is too close to wall street. >> you will not find that i ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that i ever
7:05 am
i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let's talk about the issues. let's talk about the issues that divide us. >> reporter: in this fight for the future, they went at it over their past votes on the iraq war. >> we differed on the war in iraq, which created barbaric organizations like isis, not only did i vote against that war i helped lead the opposition. >> look, we did differ. a vote in 2002 is not a plan to defeat isis. >> reporter: just about the only thing they didn't argue about, those e-mails. >> there's a process under way, i will not politicize it. >> before those e-mails it was benghazi, i have absolutely no concerns about it whatsoever. >> reporter: so many audible gasps in that hall last night.
7:06 am
another as a vice presidential pick if they were elected. shockingly probably not shockingly they would not bite on that one. hillary clinton did say, though, that if she does win her very first call to bernie sanders and she said she would reach out on advice on how to move forward. >> interesting, indeed. cecilia, thanks so much. the countdown is on to the republican debate just one day away right here on abc and the candidates are teaming up to take on each other. the latestle pos showing trump in the lead in new hampshire, but marco rubio gaining momentum. abc's jon karl is in manchester with the latest on all of that. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, amy. after his second place finish in iowa, donald trump is taking nothing for granted here in new hampshire where he has a commanding lead and is fighting hard to keep it. >> this is really crunch time. >> reporter: with five event as cross new hampshire it was trump's busiest day yet in the granite state. my colleague tom llamas caught
7:07 am
>> i'm only worried about one thing, new hampshire. >> reporter: it has turned into a game of survivor forming alliances as they fight to the finish. trump is teaming up with ben carson to slam ted cruz over his campaign's misleading claim that carson was, quote, likely to drop out after iowa. abc news has obtained voice mays left by the cruz campaign on the night of the iowa caucus. >> please inform any carson caucusgoers to this news and urge them to caucus for ted instead. >> reporter: apologized to wrongdoing. >> when you win in the state of iowa your opponents want to tear you down. >> reporter: the latest polls in new hampshire show rubio rising. abc news got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look with rubio on the campaign trail where his crowds are growing by the day. >> we wish you the best. >> thank you. i'll be back. >> that's just the overflow. >> just the overflow. >> they couldn't fit them all in. >> they couldn't get them all in, no. >> reporter: on his campaign bus rubio defended his record.
7:08 am
we have running, far more executive experience and look at you and say you're a freshman north. >> they don't have more foreign policy experience. that's the most important job of the president. >> do you think donald trump is ready to be president. >> on national security he hasn't shown to date a deep level of depth upon those issues. >> reporter: today for the most part the candidates are prepping for tomorrow night's debate which will happen right here, amy. and for realistically the highest stakes debate yet coming right before the new hampshire primary. >> oh, yes, jon karl, we cannot wait. someone else counting the days, martha raddatz, co-anchoring the debate with david muir. the excitement is building with just hours to go. >> the excitement is building. it's great to be back at st. st. anselm college, where we were with the democrats in december and all those
7:09 am
looking for momentum and there is one thing that i can absolutely guarantee, amy, there will be heated exchanges, everybody, everybody wants to survive this debate and move forward, but it may be the last chance for some. amy. >> all right, martha, and that republican debate, again, is tomorrow, moderated by martha raddatz and "world news tonight" anchor david muir that starts at 8 p.m., 7 central right here on abc. george. >> thanks, amy. here now with a woman who knows something about debate, megyn kelly, anchor of "the kelly file" on fox news. you saw martha there. any advice for her. >> stand tall. stay tough and have your facts at the ready. >> of course, you famously tangled with donald trump back in august and he had some tough things to say about you after some tough questions, called you a lightweight, unprofessional. tried to get you taken off the second debate and i was just wondering what that was like for you. reporters aren't used to being the story. >> that was highly pleasant.
7:10 am
no, it was bizarre because i became the story. he was so very focused on me that i became the story and, you know, you never want to be the story when you're a news person. you want to be covering the story so it was like an alice through the looking glass experience. >> any regrets at all? >> no. i still think it was a great question. i stand by every question i asked him and he was not the only one who had tough questions. he was the only one, however, who complained. >> it comes with the territory but i was surprised to see hillary clinton speaking out talking about you yesterday in "people" magazine and says the internet has become a refuge for vial vile commentary, some reserved just for women. do you think that's right. >> yes, i do. that's the problem with, you know, language like bimbo and so on because it gins up other comments along those lines which is diminishing to not just the woman being attacked but women in general so hopefully we can elevate the level of debate. >> well, we'll have that
7:11 am
i'm wondering what you make of the race. of course, you've talked to just about all the candidates on "the kelly file." what we see coming out of iowa marco rubio moving up. >> and now he's got a big target on his back and all these other sort of establishment leaning candidates deny they're coordinating but clearly they are after him because somehow he emerged from iowa as the guy at the top of it. this is it. new hampshire is their last-ditch effort realistically. they're under pressure from their donor, jeb bush and others -- >> jeb bush made a call to chris christie. >> they deny they're coordinating but the facts seem pretty obvious. >> only one of those four is likely to make it out of new hampshire. >> right now it's obviously trump, cruz and somebody else who is going to be gunning for those two and the question out of iowa was who would it be? you know, jeb's poll numbers weren't very good. wasn't expected to do well in iowa but neither was rubio and suddenly he comes with this third place finish that's almost a second place finish and he's got the momentum and these other
7:12 am
he's a threat. he's the boy in the bubble. whatever christie said about him he's the one. >> they are going to be gunning for him. you have another debate on march 3rd coming out of tuesday. how many candidates do you think are left by then. >> that's a good question. the bigger question in my mind whether donald trump will be at that one. i think he will be. he hasn't committed but he will show up at that one which is great because brett, chris and i will be moderating it and we will move our questions from the last debate over to this debate. >> can you share one. >> oh, god, no. you have to tune in march 3rd. >> meanwhile, we did see last night pretty feisty debate between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. looks like he's going to take new hampshire. still has a pretty big lead right there. that could be a long slog. >> that's right. what do you think? new hampshire, how important is new hampshire do you think on the democratic and republican side because, you know, the people who know what they're talking about say it's less important on the dem side. >> because bernie sanders is from vermont. >> he'll get it.
7:13 am
if he were upset there i think that would be game over. of mirage. if you look at clinton's long haul she's the favorite in every state after new hampshire and so it almost feels like a bit of media magic people are building this up into something. with all due respect to bernie sanders he has little chance in the remaining states so it's fun to watch and speculate about. race. and i think there's genuine mystery about who is going to get that nomination right now in no one knows right now. thanks for coming on. megyn kelly. >> thanks for having me. >> over to amy. a big headline on zika. concerns about that virus growing right here in the u.s. the governor of florida now expanding that state of emergency to five counties and there are now more than 50 cases of the virus across 13 states and washington, d.c. abc's linzie janis has the latest. >> reporter: this morning florida preparing for the worst, declaring a public health emergency in five counties,
7:14 am
cases of zika reported throughout the state. governor rick scott calling on the cdc to provide at least 1,000 zika antibody test kits for pregnant women to see if they contracted the virus in the past and thousands more kits to test for active cases. >> the mosquito that causes zika virus is common in florida. >> reporter: the spread of the virus a growing concern for the estimated 20 million tourists expected to visit florida in the spring break months and at miami international airport, hundreds of flights a day coming in from the 30 high-risk countries flagged by the cdc. over 100 of them just from brazil. this morning, 2 million people are flocking to the streets of rio for the start of carnival where now mosquitoes aren't the only concern for spreading zika. health authorities there saying a man was infected with the virus after receiving multiple blood transfusions but some doctors here in the u.s. say they're more worried about
7:15 am
>> we have definitive proof from the cdc that there was a transmission with sexual intercourse. >> reporter: and that is why health officials say both men and women returning from zika affected countries should monitor for symptom, meanwhile, in hospitals like this one here in miami, they are gearing up for a fight. george. >> okay, linzie, thanks very much. breaking new details about that plane nearly blown out of the sky in africa. investigators believe they have found explosive residue on the plane and officials tell abc news they are looking at isis in the african terror group al shabaab. david kerley has the latest. >> reporter:over night more suggestions that that gaping hole in this jet leading to depressurization and oxygen masks dangling with the wind was likely caused by a bomb and u.s. sources are trying to determine if isis or the terrorist group in somalia is responsible. the detonation was just after takeoff at 11,000 feet. two passengers hurt and it's believed one person may have been sucked out of the a-321
7:16 am
the head of the airline says investigators found residue which they believe are traces of explosives. it's also been revealed 70 of the 74 passengers on board were originally booked on a turkish air flight which was canceled. turkey is involved in the fight against isis. it's still unclear how the device got on board according to our sources, but somalia is a dangerous place. in probably just get on the airplane so in a place like somalia where there's no real government, it's awfully easy to get a bomb on board. >> reporter: the airline suspended flights while the investigation into the explosion continues. one other unusual note on this case, there has been no claim of responsibility and terrorist groups like those possibly involved do like to take credit for incidents like this, george. >> that is strange. thanks very much. we want to get back out to robin in san francisco with that big headline about the big game. robin. >> lara, there is so much excitement as you know here for
7:17 am
the halftime show, coldplay, they told us they're already teaming up with beyonce. we knew that but they're promising big surprises. abc's ryan smith has that. >> reporter: coldplay and queen bey, the hymn for the weekend collaborators taking center stage on the biggest weekend of the year. but this morning, a super mystery from the super bowl. who will be the other global superstars joining the gents on stage. >> we wanted to make it about togetherness and acceptance and caught the right guests. >> some of their biggest hits feature collaborators so, for example, he's done songs with rihanna, with jay z, with kanye west. >> reporter: chris martin keeping mum only revealing they will honor halftime shows of years past. >> we watched all the other
7:18 am
celebrate those and hopefully make a show as memorable as some of our favorites. you're going to hear me roar >> reporter: memorable as in last year's katy perry roaring alongside left and right shark and surprise guest missy elliott. >> reporter: now coldplay hoping their 12 minutes on stage will be paradise. for "good morning america," ryan smith, abc news, san francisco. paradise >> no telling what's going to happen halftime or in the game but i got to tell you, after that press conference, coldplay, they're nervous. they're actually really nervous about performing. that's how excited they are to be performing here any super bowl, guys. >> you can't blame them for that, what, 120 some million people. a little bit of pressure. back to rob. you got real cold weather across the midwest. >> snow outside is pretty wet

7:37 am
back live here from san francisco and roger goodell has been the commissioner of the nfl for the last ten years and under his watch, the league has experienced unprecedented success and also facing major criticism, as you know. now goodell is speaking out and i had a chance to sit down with him during the sport's biggest week. when you see the number of concussions that are rising, you had more this year than last year, is there anything more that the league can do? >> the number of concussions went up this year and they're going to go up and they're going to go down in any given season but screenings went up by 108% and also we saw more self-reporting from the players and teammates. that's what i call the culture change. it used to be as you know there was, well, it's just a ding. those days are long gone. and that's a positive thing for our game. >> i don't know if you had a
7:38 am
the betrayal of the nfl and of you in particular doesn't shed a good light on the league. how do you get past that perception that people have that the league hasn't been at the forefront, that you have not addressed this true issue that people are talking about with cte and concussions? >> well, robin, with facts. i think when you look at what we've done over the last ten years we've had 40 different rule changes that are all designed on making the game safer. that didn't start the last 12 month, that started ten years ago and we've invested in equipment changes. we're seeing safety changes to the turf which i think will help on impacts including head impacts on the turf so all of these things are going to take hold and they take time. >> kenny stabler, we learned of his death this week and it was determined that he had a severe case of cte. is there anything in hindsight that you look back and wish the
7:39 am
>> if i had known that we could have made more changes but the league has a history of evolving the game and we're leading the way. pioneering research and over $100 million in research that is going not just to make football safer, this is going to make all sports safer, the military safer and quite frankly will probably have an impact on brain disease in general? if you had a son, would you want him to play football? >> i would not only want him to play football, i will certainly encourage him to do it and i would let him do it. i think there are tremendous values in playing the game of football. there's risk involved with anything in life but what we need to do is make sure we show people how to get the most out of playing sports and do it safely. >> any disciplinary decisions that you have made to this point that you wish you could do over again? >> oh, sure, when our policies haven't met the types of standards that we think should be upheld, we acknowledge that
7:40 am
assault area, we changed our policy a year ago december and had in this past 12-month cycle we had the lowest amount of arrests in the history of the nfl. >> how do you respond to those players who feel you have too much power? do you have too much power. >> i don't know what they mean by power. if they're talking about discipline, we collectively bargained on it. that's been in place for decades, the commissioner has had authority to protect the shield, to protect the integrity of the game and do what's in the best interest of the game overall. >> i welcome all of. >> you quite an experience today with the women's summit. that was something new. >> what we've seen is that there are young kids that aren't having the opportunity to play and particularly young girls. and so we wanted to be able to focus on that in the women's summit today to figure out how we can build more programs to allow more girls to participate and get those skills so that they can become leaders in society. whatever careers they may choose. >> this as kathryn smith was
7:41 am
coach for the buffalo bills just last month. also making headlines, the rooney rule in effect for women. what do you hope to accomplish with that? >> well, the rooney rule was established probably 15 years ago to help us with diversity in all of our hireings particularly in the coaching area but wouldn't too make sure when we have an opening not only have a diverse slate of candidates but women that we believe can do the job and give then the opportunity. >> with the rooney rule we've seen there are now five african-american coaches, one latino, coach rivera. >> in the super bowl. >> who is here in the super bowl and some wonder while it is absolutely progress, is there more to make sure that what you're hoping that there could be more impact? that the results could be even better? >> i always think there's -- diversity is still an issue that we're not finished. we're not done and so much of what we do is incomplete so

8:11 am
>> that's the million dollar question. i think wade phillips and his guys have a tough task on their hand. having played for wade and the guys he has on his defense, akeib talib, they'll put together a great plan. you're not going to stop him but find a way to minimize his impact. >> you played against peyton manning in a super bowl a couple years ago and everyone is talking about how he doesn't have the same arm strength, kind of falling off but what have you seen from him in the playoffs. >> the last three weeks have impressed me. denver had a great team throughout the season and felt like their defense played phenomenal but seemed to have a little more juice once he came back into the lineup midway through the last game and the run they've made through the playoffs he's playing extremely well, the run game looks great and then obviously their defense is stout. >> j.j., one of the cool things you got the number one offense, defense from denver. the question, in games like the
8:12 am
championships, offense or defense? >> well, i happen to defer to drew because he has won a super bowl so drew brees havingeing won one he would say offense. denver has the number one defense but carolina's defense is no slouch ear with luke kuechly and josh norman. for me as a defensive player it will fun to watch. >> you won super bowl xliv. take us inside the locker room. how do you handle the hype talking about it nonstop. >> that's the biggest challenge because it's not -- as much as you tell yourself it's just another game it's not. everything from the pregame festivities to 45-minute halftime you have to find a way to chapel your energy and emotions in and around all of that stuff. eliminate distractions and just get down to the game when it's time but i think denver's experience from two years ago is really going to serve them well and think the team that's able to come out the most calm at the
8:13 am
comfort level sets in. i think carolina is the most complete team in football right now, offense and defense so i think you match those two things up and it's going to be -- >> we have to ask the real insider. she's been at it all week long interviewing cam newton and peyton manning and everybody all week so you've been the superstar. is there a question, because you ask the tough ones. a question you got. >> what's your prediction for the super bowl? >> ooh. >> put you on the spot right away. >> you do ask the tough questions. you know, i honestly don't know how the game issing go to go but having played for gary kubiak and wade, i do hope they get a championship under their belts. they deserve it. i pull for them. >> drew, what do you think? >> i have friends on both sides. i think once you -- you know, as you're sitting back, man i'd love to see that guy get a ring, i'd love to see that guy get a ring, i feel like -- i feel like carolina would win eight out of
8:14 am
but this could be one of -- >> is this the one denver is able to pull out because the last three weeks have been different. you can feel it. >> i'll decide with you. you've dissected this game top to bottom. who are you picking and why? >> panthers because like j.j. said, they're both dynamic and the offense is good as well as the defense. they both click together and i think the defense can stop the broncos' offense with peyton manning and they can do the same on offense. >> hear that? i'm going to vegas. she said patches. nice job, everybody. we're having a blast in san francisco. let's send it back to you. >> we're just going to hire marlo. >> she's great. >> i love how she doesn't give a direct answer but exactly what she thinks. >> knows what she's talking about. >> they're dynamic. i have no idea what you're talking about but you sound very smart. >> xs and os soon. >> time now for our "10 dates in 10 states" daily update. abc producer erica scott went

8:40 am
i'm now in my seventh year here and my office had never actually been done in it was actually the opposite. >> very much the opposite but unlike lara i dent have the diy gene so we called michael smith and "architectural digest" and they teamed up to redo it. all i had to do was write the check but as you can see this place really needed an upgrade. >> oh, yeah. >> this place is a dump. come on. and, you know, i started to feel i have to say a little bit embarrassed, you know, robin and lara and amy have all fixed up their offices, personalized them. >> love this and i love this woman. >> oh, my gosh. >> that's so great. >> it does look great together. >> made them a little bit of home and, you know, i started to feel like i'm bringing down the value of the neighborhood. this is where i start every single day. it would be great if it was a little more comfortable, a little more personal and a
8:41 am
>> george's office with all due respect was shocking. >> george's office looked like a demented dorm room gone bad. >> i think the biggest transformation actually was the window because the window was just frightening and made no sense and i think the solution of using a blackout shade and then putting the wooden blinds in front of it is just really beautiful. very masculine. very sophisticated. >> the walls were really transformative. it's a little bit of a trick, i think people are often hesitant about the idea of wallpaper. it sounds like your grandpore's attic or something and i think in a sways like that with not a lot of architecture it can transform it. >> i think michael had some brilliant solutions like that cabinet. you know, i'm a big believer things shouldn't go in drawers but if they're in a cabinet you still know where things are and
8:42 am
>> really believed that the pattern carpets are an interesting way to ground a room and if you put things on and they kind of hold in place so that's something that a lot of people can take away. >> i think he's going to love it. it's been a big secret. are you ready? >> let's do it. >> okay. >> oh, my gosh. this is unbelievable. so this is all the furniture that i bought. >> yeah. >> but then you figured it all out. >> these are some old beautiful photos. >> those are good, right? you have your own photos here which are great. >> we gave you this incredible -- you got it but this great cupboard. look. so it has all this great stuff. it has your water, it has a little baby refrigerator. it's completely great. >> this is crazy. >> you're never going to have to go home. it's going to be amazing. >> i did say before this happened it's like would be nice since i spend the first part of every day here to feel a little more like home and it doesn't feel like an office. >> no.
8:43 am
>> we gave you plants you can't kill. they're unbelievable. >> ah. >> it's good, right. >> this is great. >> take a nap in there. >> i didn't even notice that. >> good light fixture so it's not -- >> a dimmer. >> a dimmer. >> i can't believe this is my office. this is the ultimate before and after. >> it's good. it's really good. look how nice it is seriously. >> great. >> wow, big thanks to michael and margaret. >> yeah and "architectural digest" and this is the first time george is letting any of us into his office hence the police tape. are we ready? >> let's go. >> america, let's see. george stephanopoulos' lair. come on in, everybody. wow. thank you for letting me in for the first time ever. this is so nice. do you ever really sit in this chair? >> i nap sometimes if we have to stay late after the show. >> what's your favorite part about this? >> it doesn't feel like i'm coming to work. that's the best part about it.
8:44 am
this is where you store your water. this is gorgeous. i mean -- >> isn't that pretty? >> see, america, i had a feeling. and ali comes here sometimes does she approve. >> ali has not been here but she approved and wrote the piece in "architectural digest." >> she diddy. >> yes. >> alism, it's beautiful and george has been much nicer since it got done so thank you. thank you, "architectural digest." thanks for letting us come in, george. >> absolutely. hits newsstands tuesday. coming up the chefs creating the ultimate gam good morning to you. we interrupt programming once again to bring you breaking news. there's been a crane collapse
8:45 am
this is at worth and church street. the exact address is 40 worth street. the crane, according to the fdny collapsed right there, trapping at least one person in a car. the condition of that person is not known. we have information and they have since been taken out. we don't know if there are other people in the other cars there. this happened about 8:24 according to an eyewitness as well this morning. we don't know if there are other people along that street and don't know if the weather was also a factor in this. we have someone on the phone, though, shawn campbell. shawn, are you there? >> i'm here, lori. >> did you witness this? >> i did. i was in my office getting my coffee ready when all of a sudden i see crumbling. >> where is your office, shawn? >> it's on 40 worth street. >> go ahead, i'm sorry. so you saw the crane come down? >> i did.
8:46 am
see if everyone was okay. there was a gentleman pinned under the crane. >> do you know if this crane was working on the building at 40 worth or another building? >> no, they just week sometime, i'm not sure, but it was really tall. >> did this happen about 8:24, is that correct? >> that was about the time exactly. >> okay. were there other people in the office with you? did they also see this? >> no, it's just me. i'm usually the first one there. >> you saw it come down on the cars? >> i saw it from the window, and i wasn't was looking across. so i saw it crumble. >> we've seen this happen in inclement weather. i remember another crane collapse we had about a year or so ago when weather was a factor once again. >> right.
8:47 am
initial reaction, you were standing by the window when you saw this? tell us about your reaction about all of this. >> i didn't know what was happening because it happened so fast. i could hear the bending of metal and scraping and stuff like that. when i went downstairs, though, pieces of concrete or cement were there, so i think it hit the side of the building and hitting power lines. >> so you actually went down to the street level to check it out? >> i did. >> and we've been talking about there was possibly one person who was trapped and that they were then maybe taken out. did you see anybody trapped in any of the cars? >> i did. he went in the car. i don't know if he was in the car when it fell. when i got there he was on the street and it was pretty bad. >> all right. so you said you actually did or did not see him taken out of the vehicle?
8:48 am
>> oh, under the crane. okay. i would imagine there's still -- can you see emergency personnel there at all right now? >> no, because they evacuated the building off the side. >> you said there was no one else in your office so there must not have been too many people that were evacuated. >> no it was kind of early. >> what kind of building is that, shawn? >> i don't understand the question. >> is it all offices? >> it's all offices. >> no restaurants on the bottom or anything like that? >> there you are. hi. no, just inside here like a gym or, like, gymnasium for kids and stuff like that, which was closed, i believe. >> where are you right now since you evacuated? >> i'm going outside right now. >> you are standing outside? what else are you seeing, anything? >> no, just flashing lights. >> those are photos that you
8:49 am
right now? >> yes, ma'am. >> i don't see what you are showing on the screen but i did send you photos. >> this was when you ran down from the office as it came down just to check it out to see what was going and started snapping away? >> exactly. >> so what we're seeing, shawn, just because i know you can't right now, we're looking at live photos right now once again of the crane that has collapsed. this is at 40 worth street. 40 and church or excuse me, forth worth street at church and worth street, a crane collapsed at 8:24 this morning. fdny saying they responded to the scene. there was an individual apparently trapped in one of those cars that was, we believe, was taken out of there and perhaps on the way to the hospital. we have rob nelson also en route to that scene to give us
8:50 am
on the phone, we have shawn campbell who witnessed this. shawn, will you take us through this one more time as we've been talking with you this morning. you were in your office at 40 worth when you had the crashing metal sound? >> right. i looked out the window facing the window and i could see the crane slowly coming down. it lasted about 5, 6 seconds, maybe 10. >> so your initial response then was to go downstairs to try to see what's going on? >> right. well to see if anyone was hurt and other stuff. >> all right. we're also hearing once this crane collapsed, according to abc news and the information that we're getting from the assignment desk, there appears to be multiple injuries, at least one confirmed fatality according to the fdny.
8:51 am
the crane toppling on parked cars as we can see in the photos and video that you showed us, sean. >> correct. >> this could be weather related. that's what we'll have to get more details on, also. i'm wondering if meteorologist bill evans is miked up. bill? >> i'm sorry? >> i was trying to check, sean, with our meteorologist, bill evans, to see if we could get information from him as to whether or not what the role weather could have played. >> lori, i'm looking back and doing a little forensics trying to get an idea of what was happening at that hour. wind gusts were at 22 miles per hour. you've had heavy snow and rain mix. so as you go up with height with any crane, the higher you go, the stronger the winds are. so you could essentially say
8:52 am
particular timer with in the 30 mile-per-hour range, and suesp, if we could take the action cue track radar -- the accu track radar, we can look at the winds to see what time the winds were going. you are looking at 12, 15, 13 mile-per-hour winds here as we go back in time. if we go all the way back to the earlier hours, you could see that northerly wind, which would push that right down worth street, which is a street that runs, basically north/south. so you are looking at a north- northeast wind with heavy, wet snow. so with higher altitude as you go up, you would be looking at mostly ice gathering on that crane could make a case for the heavy, wet snow.
8:53 am
because of the wind itself canyoning through the building. so we'll see later when the forensics are done, but it is quite likely weather did have something to do with it. >> now we're getting word that there's bane water main break at worth street and west broadway. also just another factor being thrown into the mix of the crane collapse, which happened about 8:24 this morning. bill evans saying at that time, there was heavy snow mixed with rain as well that wind speeds of some 22 miles per hour. when this crane came down, it appears to be a huge construction site that's going on right there. it came down crashing on several parked cars. we have reports from the fdny that at least one fatality and numerous injuries. we also have on the phone with
8:54 am
to be at 40 worth street, which is where this was took place. he was the only witness that we know of at least right now. sean, are you still with us? did we lose sean? billion, lil bill, i'm coming back to you as we talk about the wind speed being 22 miles per hour and you factor in the heavy snow. it's kind of a mix of predictability that something could go wrong? >> i was taking a look at some of the winds we were talking about, and the wind at 808 was a 23 mile-per-hour wind gust at lower manhattan. you can see it on the accutrack radar. this is coming up on 8:08 a.m. as we go a little farther in time. that's pretty much where the winds were at that particular hour. you can see the wet snow that is there, too. winds through that area almost double in effect because of the canyoning of the buildings,
8:55 am
and know after that. >> also on the phone, tom, a commissioner, thank you for being with us this morning. >> you are welcome. >> when you heard about this, we've had these types of scenarios before, and bill's talking about the wind speed and heavy snow that was going on. the fdny is giving us the report of at least one fatality and other injuries involved. give us your shouts. >> immediately you think of the weather so they may have been ajusting it, adding a piece or moving it. it could have been a mistake. it could have been a malfunction in the equipment. really it's too soon to know. it doesn't seem like a tremendous amount of snow. it looks icy and slippy reason wind was significant but they won't put it up at a certain level.
