8:01 am
take new york? tiger attack. a beloved zookeeper nicknamed the tiger whisperer mauled to death by one of the animals she cared for at a zoo in florida. guests evacuated from the scene. why did the tiger suddenly turn? and struck in the stands. >> look out. >> this foul ball hitting a fan in the face, medics along with the batter rushing to the scene. >> people are just a little more important than that game right there. >> why the protective netting didn't help at all. and good morning. it is a frantic scramble right now to rescue people trapped in the rubble after a pair of earthquakes. >> thousands of japanese army troops and other rescuers are in a race against time trying to save lives. in the midst of terrifying aftershocks, burning buildings, all of this with the threat of bad weather moving in.
8:02 am
>> and look at this aerial video. this is a famous castle perched on a high wall and that wall is collapsing beneath it. the damage is mind boggling in the country right now. the death toll rising even though officials admit they don't even really yet know how many people have been killed or injured. >> and abc's joohee cho is right there in the middle of it reporting now from kumamoto, japan. joohee, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula and dan. we're at a shelter near the epicenter where residents here are bracing for more aftershocks. already over 200 felt so far in the wake of the deadly pair of earthquakes that jolted one of the nation's most populated islands. death toll still rising and the injured streaming into hospitals. before residents could recover, it happened again. japan rocked by another earthquake saturday morning. the quake devastating the region, landslides swallowing roads and buildings. look at how this highway crumbled. the ground beneath this historic
8:03 am
castle collapsed. this bridge snapped in half and transportation at a standstill, the airport damaged and trains derailed. this region rocked first by a 6.2 magnitude thursday night before saturday's 7.3 level quake. >> stay in a safe place until the tremors stop. >> reporter: scenes of chaos and devastation with broken glass scattered, concrete crushing cars, and firefighters battle blazes of burning structures. >> 20% of all medium to large scale earthquakes on the earth take place in japan, and that's because japan sits on the juncture of three earthquake faults. >> reporter: nearly 70,000 have fled their homes. emergency crews evacuating patients from this hospital fearing it could collapse. a race against time for rescuers searching for the hundreds reportedly trapped underneath the debris tirelessly combing through leveled buildings including this college dormitory with students stuck inside. in a light of hope in the
8:04 am
destruction, crews miraculously saving this baby girl buried beneath the rubble. experts are now cautiously watching this volcano, which began spewing ash, and officials are keeping a close eye on a nearby nuclear power plant. the country is still on edge after five years, memories of the tsunami, the powerful quake and the fukushima meltdown are still fresh in people's minds. >> all too real, joohee, thank you. and it is countdown to the new york primary, just three days away, but the front-runners are nowhere near the empire state. hillary clinton is raising cold, hard hollywood cash while rival bernie sanders takes the detour to the vatican and david wright is on the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, paula. a detour to the vatican where he actually met the pope. but let's be clear. this was not a papal endorsement of bernie sanders. more of a sanders' endorsement of pope francis. the crucial new york primary just a few days away, it's a
8:05 am
must win for both democrats, and yet both of them spent the day thousands of miles away consulting with higher powers. no pictures yet, but as he left the papal residence this morning, bernie sanders was glowing after a brief audience with pope francis. >> he is a beautiful man, and there is a radiance that comes from him. it was a very, very wonderful moment to me. >> reporter: sanders had gone to vatican city on a wing and a prayer unsure they'd actually meet, no promises given, accepting an invitation to speak at a vatican conference on the economy and the environment. >> and i have been enormously impressed by pope francis speaking out and his visionary views. >> reporter: pope francis begged off the conference citing his trip to lesbos today to meet with syrian refugees, but sanders spent the night at the vatican guest house where pope francis lives leading to this brief audience. >> he is one of the great leaders in modern world history in my view.
8:06 am
>> reporter: not to be outdone, after brushing up on her domino skills in new york, hillary clinton seized a moment to slip away and squeeze in a pair of glitzy california fund-raisers hosted by george and amal clooney. sanders supporters were there to greet her at the first fund-raiser last night in the bay area banging pots and pans. >> $27. >> reporter: for his part sanders pointedly launched this new ad to coincide with clinton's fund-raisers highlighting the fact that his contributors tend to give more modest sums to his campaign. >> 27 to transform america. >> reporter: 27 bucks is the average donation from sanders' supporters to him. tonight those clinton fund-raisers are giving north of 33,000 but the price includes dinner and a selfie. >> there you go. the price of selfies i guess just went up. >> dinner and a selfie. welcome to campaigning in 2016. david, thank you. on the republican side donald trump is doing something surprising this morning. he's agreeing with bernie sanders. abc's devin dwyer on trump's
8:07 am
latest salvo and why ted cruz is leaving the empire state just days before the crucial primary. devin is on the campaign trail in syracuse, new york. good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, dan. after his loss to ted cruz in wisconsin, donald trump is looking to tuesday's new york primary to start a new chapter in his campaign getting back to winning and taking on hillary clinton. this morning, donald trump's in an empire state of mind. >> folks, we need a change, but not an obama change, we need a real change. we don't need hillary clinton who is a disaster. >> reporter: trump's turning up the heat on fellow new yorker hillary clinton. he's so far ahead in the state, he's wandering into the democratic debate. >> wall street owns hillary clinton, wall street, remember. on that i agree with bernie sanders. >> reporter: but rival ted cruz says trump is a fan of other prominent new york democrats. a new cruz tv ad hammers him for his kind words about new york city mayor bill de blasio.
8:08 am
trump hasn't spent a dime on tv advertising in new york and holds a commanding lead. >> god bless the great state of new york. >> reporter: meanwhile, ted cruz is ditching new york today to try to win over gop delegates where trump has not campaigned. >> when i'm done here, i'm getting on a plane and flying to the state of wyoming. >> reporter: this as trump continues to question the fairness of the delegate selection process. >> the republicans want to play cute with us, right? if i don't make it, you're going to have millions of people that don't vote for a republican. they're not going to vote at all. >> reporter: now, while ted cruz and john kasich both prepare for a contested convention, donald trump this morning says he's begun softening the tone of his campaign to unify the party telling the new york newspaper, "news day," quote, i said things that were a little too tough, paula. >> all right, we're seeing that 180. devin, thank you. and we want to bring in abc's political analyst matt dowd. matt, thanks for joining us. i want to start out on the gop
8:09 am
and this is turning to be an ugly feud between the gop and trump. he wrote an op-ed saying the process was rigged but the party responded and i want to read it to you, quote, each process is easy to understand for those willing to learn it. it ultimately falls on the campaigns to be up to speed on these delicate roles. have you ever seen anything like this before? they're eating their own. >> absolutely. this is unprecedented. but basically the guy that wants to lead the team is attacking the entire team in the course of this. he's trying to do a hostile takeover of the gop. he's like carl icahn of the politics right now. he's trying to take it over. you've never seen anything like this. trump is right. the system is rigged and the rnc is saying the rules were known. so both sides were right and how this feud ends up, we'll see at the convention in cleveland. >> it could sabotage their own party. to the democratic side and bernie sanders has won seven of the last eight contests. we have a big primary on tuesday here in new york. but do you think this could be his final stand? >> yes, i think the only shot he has left anymore is to change
8:10 am
the dynamics of the race. math is against him. he won't get the delegates he needs in the course of this before the convention so has to change the dynamic of this race. that's why i think he went to rome and had his meeting and did his speech over there. bernie's great adventure continues but he has to win new york or the race is over. >> great, analysis. always great to have you in the studio. >> great to be here. >> okay, dan. >> i want to remind everybody that they're going to have a big show tomorrow on "this week." matt will be there, both hillary clinton and bernie sanders joining george stephanopoulos to talk about the primary in new york, t-minus three days until that. so much more coming up tomorrow on "this week." we turn now though to the horrifying story of the tiger whisperer, a seasoned employees of the palm beach zoo mauled by one of the animals she loved. the zoo evacuated and abc's eva pilgrim is here with the story. eva, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this is something the zookeeper did every day, going one-on-one with these tigers preparing them for their day, but this time one
8:11 am
of the tigers turned on her. now, investigators are trying to figure out what went wrong. this morning, a florida zoo is closed after a tiger attacks and kills a veteran zookeeper. >> we've lost a family member. >> reporter: a malayan male like this one shown in this zoo video mauling lead keeper, stacey konwiser, the palm beach zoo declaring a code red all guests evacuated many huddling in the gift shop. emergency crew airlifting konwiser to a nearby hospital where the 37-year-old was later pronounced dead. zoo officials say guests were never in any danger. the attack happening behind the scenes in a closed-in area. >> there was no public involved whatsoever. the cat was contained. they notified people, shut the zoo down. the animal is not out in the open. >> reporter: konwiser was working side-by-side with the big cats in the night house where they sleep preparing the zoo's afternoon tiger talk like the one in this youtube video posted by the zoo. the veteran keeper called the tiger whisperer by her co-workers had been at the palm
8:12 am
beach zoo for three years. >> this is an incident that happened. it's beyond rare. we have an important job here to educate our public about the animal world. >> reporter: and that's a lot of what she was doing. konwiser's husband also works as a keeper at the zoo where counselors are now on hand. no word at this point when that zoo will re-open. >> and jack hanna is right. this is incredibly rare but these are wild animals. you always have to be careful. eva, thank you. a lot of other news this morning and for that, as always, we turn it over to ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> good morning to you, dan, paula. good morning, everyone. we begin with pope francis' emotional meeting with refugees in greece and abc's terry moran is on the island of lesbos following the papal visit. good morning to you, terry. >> reporter: good morning, ron, and what an emotional day it's been here. pope francis on the front lines of the refugee crisis, last year on this island more than 500,000 people came ashore seeking a better life, and so francis went to be with them at the main detention camp here, an old
8:13 am
prison, a pretty grim place and you could see the desperation, a man collapsing to his knees in front of the pope sobbing, broken, and the little children giving him their drawings from the camp, the pope so struck by them, he told his aides i want to bring these drawings home to rome and put them on my desk as a reminder of what he's seen here. practically there's very little the pope can do to change things here, but there's one more emotion we should mention from francis himself, joy. you get the unmistakable sense that being with people like this, the unwanted, bearing witness to their struggle is his favorite part of the job, ron. >> okay, terry moran, thanks for that report from greece. traveling with pope francis. and back here at home, a shooting in temple hill, maryland, just outside of washington, d.c. leaves one firefighter dead, another critically injured. firefighters responding to a call asking to check on a sick person who could not be contacted. when no one answered the door when they showed up the fireman along with the person that called them went into the house and that is when shots were fired. the shooter was believed to be the person they were checking on
8:14 am
who is now in police custody. and the nba calling a north carolina law affecting what public restroom transgendered people can use, they said it was problematic, however, they have no plans as of now to move next year's all-star game from charlotte, north carolina, this after outcry from fans and basketball stars like charles barkley demanding that move and friday the acrobatic theatrical group cirque du soleil said it would cancel all performances there because of that law. hundreds of football fans and dozens of former teammates of will smith, the former new orleans saints star who was killed last week showed up to say good-bye holding it inside the team's practice facility. smith's wife, who was also wounded in that incident atecatd that memorial
8:15 am
along with the couple's three children. a suspect has been arrested. smith's funeral will take place later today. and the coast guard had to rescue three people from a stranded sailboat off the coast of georgia after they lost steering control in strong winds and rough surf. search and rescue teams and a helicopter were able to lift the three to safety and treated for dehydration and seasickness. a pet duck in wisconsin gets his waddle back thanks to some high-tech feet. his name is phillip the duck. learning to walk again after being fitted with synthetic webbed feet designed using a 3d printer. the duck lost both of his feet to frostbite. once he masters walking, his owner hopes he'll be swimming next at an animal sanctuary that will be his home. this happened an hour before he was supposed to be put down. >> you're kidding. >> they saved his life. happy story. happy ending. >> that's phenomenal. >> and the material called ninja flex that they use to put on his feet like a ninja duck. >> i love it. >> by the way, kayna whitworth, it's grea to have you here. what's it called? ninja flex.
8:16 am
>> ninja flex. i need that basically on everything i own, i think. >> we have our own resident ninja, rob marciano, is in washington, d.c. right now and, rob, it's all about those famed cherry blossoms, correct? >> yeah, that we're celebrating the natural cherry blossom festival. the parade is today. it's kind of the final weekend of the festival itself that goes on for about three weeks. behind me they're blowing up the moons. it's like thanksgiving here. i think that's strawberry shortcake. i should know that but you got balloons and you've got floats. of course, you got marching bands. this is the mitchell high school marching band from new port richey, florida. what a beautiful backdrop, the washington monument on the mall. sun coming up. going to be a fantastic day. here are the tamagao dancers. we had spectacular tornados
8:17 am
across southeastern colorado. no damage done, but a great day to chase no doubt about that. we'll see more severe weather, as the front moves off to the east, that's when the severe weather fires up tonight into tomorrow morning. monday, getting close to dallas. there will be a flash flood threat. heavy rainfall, five or six inches northwest of dallas and the snowfall will be upwards of four feet in the mountains. winter storm warning for denver with maybe a foot there, especially in the suburbs. that's a look at the national outlook and cherry blossom festival forecast. here's what's going on where you live. >> reporter: good morning, i'm meteorologist chris sowers with this accuweather update. the goose all that stays out west. look at the sunshine, bright

8:19 am
well, today marks a really big day for basketball fans. one more reason to sit on the couch, dan, okay, the nba playoffs tip off, 16 teams in, for many of the regular season it's been a mere formality, the big question, though, which one of them has a legit chance to take down masters champs, we're talking about the golden state warriors and steph curry. kevin negandhi has more on what's ahead. kevin, first and foremost, it's great to have you here in studio this morning. >> good to be here. thank you for having me. a year after beating lebron james in the final steph curry is unseeding king james in popularity. according to a recent espn sports fan poll, curry has jumped ahead of lebron as the league's number one favorite player, and like his shooting range, curry's popularity has no limits. no matter where he is on the court, steph curry can beat you. >> bang, bang, oh, what a shot from curry. >> reporter: smashing records and leading the league in scoring, curry could become the
8:20 am
nba's first ever unanimous mvp winner. while lebron james looks like a 6'8" comic book superhero, the 6'3" curry is doing it with ridiculous shooting range and dribbling skills that kids like noah cutler want to imitate. >> so much of what steph curry does, people can identify with. handling a ball, shooting the ball, he very rarely dunks. he's not flying through the air. steph curry and now a whole legion of players like him realize that dribbling and shooting the three-pointer can make you a champion. >> three, perfect. >> i want to be great. i want to be the best i can be. >> one out of every five avid nba fans name curry as their favorite athlete but popularity at home may be a little different. his young daughter riley stole many of the postgame headlines during last year's playoffs. >> daddy, quiet. >> you're going to be -- >> now, curry is the face of the nba and the defending champion warriors. but the biggest test on trying
8:21 am
to become the best team ever begins today in the playoffs. >> we just know we have a good thing here and we want to take advantage of it and keep pushing the envelope. >> by the way, that special michael jordan's bulls team in 1996 went 15-3 in the playoffs, finished 87-13 overall. the warriors need to win a championship and go 16-4 to finish with a better combined record. >> as a proponent of meditation, i can't help but notice both the bulls of the '90s and the warriors of today have a real focus on the mental game. >> yeah, phil jackson was the head coach of that bulls team. one of his former players, steph steve kerr, who is the head coach of the warriors. so they do the whole meditation thing and this past year their top three core values, joy, mindfulness and compassion. >> that sounds like the core values of "gma" weekend. >> yes, as those are our core values. absolutely. >> and beating the spread. >> kevin, great to have you.
8:22 am
>> thank you very much. >> come on back sometime soon. remember, everybody, a full day of playoffs on abc and espn, rockets against the warriors and oakland starting at 3:30 eastern. and coming up here on the show, the baseball fan hit in the stands even though there was protective netting in place. how that ball managed to make it through and how the fan is doing this morning. plus, will and kate's taj mahal visit as they wrap up their tour to india and how it's being compared to princess diana's visit almost 2 1/2 decades ago. right back.
