he didn't say it. >> amnesia is curable in senators looking to protect themselves and their president. the white house didn't deny it. other senators heard it before the reports. now for cotton and perdue to say that the president didn't say it definitively, they're looking out for their own political interests. >> it complicates the entire debate over daca and immigration. very, very unlikely to see a deal on that before friday. >> and that's a tragedy. before the president's vulgar comments were reported, it was looking like there was a deal in the senate. this is the way deals are supposed to be done. both sides giving a little bit. looking like you can help people in the process. and the president's comments derailing it. >> another tumultuous week. john avlon, thank you. the alert in hi manipulate telling residents a ballistic missile was imminent.

fired. >> reporter: hawaii's governor saying an emergency operating center employee accidentally triggered the alert system. >> i don't want to go in. >> reporter: parents sheltering their children in manholes. this mother of three trying to protect her kids with blankets. >> it's hard as a mother. their whole lives, kids hurt themselves. you say, it will be fine. i'm looking at my kids going, i don't know if it's going to be fine. >> reporter: this morning, questions over why it took 38 agonizing minutes to retract the threat when they knew after three minutes that it wasn't real. >> a father sent me a message saying that his two children were in two different locations. he had to sit there and think which of his children he was going to choose to spend the last minutes of his life with. this is what the people of hawaii just went through. >> reporter: abc news went inside the building that monitors threats to the island. a top administrator there told us he didn't originally have the correct application to fix the false alarm.
>> it took us that time to get the construct button, the correct application to put out a new message to say this is a false alarm, there is no missile inbound. >> reporter: from now on, that app is always going to be loetded. >> good to know. thank you. we want to bring in retired marine colonel steve ganyard. good morning to you. there's a lot of finger pointing. a lot of blame to go around. the big issue is that hawaii didn't tell its people what to do, where to go. we saw fathers putting their children in manholes. >> that's right, paula. the way this alert went out, they basically said, you're all dead in 15 minutes and left it at that. we sould have seen automated messages, tell people where to go, what to do. what is the state plan. that was the real failure. >> opened up glaring v vulnerabilitie vulnerabilities. let's talk about the broader situation. could what happened in hawaii be a warning sign for other states?
>> i think so. this could have happened in a lot of states or communities. we need to go back to a somewhat of a cold war mentality. not necessarily duck and cover. we have to take the north korean threat seriously. every community ought to look at this and say, are our procedures aro appropria appropriate? can we prevent something like this. >> kim jong-un has take an victory lap this weekend after what happened in hawaii. >> he's the happiest guy around. because he said, finally, my nuclear program has done what i intended it to do. that is to strike fear and panic into the hearts of the american people. >> stu, steve. >> paula, thanks. now to the frightening boat fire caught on camera. 50 pop on board the casino shuttle when flames e erupted. linzie janis with the story. >> reporter: it was supposed to be an evening of fun. these passengers ended up having to fight for their lives, jumping into the sis si waters as their shuttle boat wept up in
flames. take a look that dramatic video off the coast of florida. >> we were terrified for everyone on board. >> reporter: a shuttle boat engulfed in flames. forcing the passengers to jump into the port richey canal and swim ashore to safety. >> holy cow. >> reporter: the shuttle was headed to a casino boat when the captain noticed smoke coming from the engine room. witnesses described panic on board as the boat burned. >> in a matter of four minutes, the whole boat was gone. like, in flames. >> reporter: passengers abandoned ship 100 feet from the shore. jumping into the ten foot deep ocean water in43-degree weather. the waters cold enough to cause hypothermia. >> they directed all of us to jump. from the front of the boat. >> people were crawling trying to get to shore. >> reporter: first responders jumping into the water to help victims to safety.
back on land, neighbors helping, too. >> they're bringing blankets and sheets and jackets an what not. trying to get the people warm. >> reporter: 15 people were taken to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries. >> if they were out any farther, this could have been a tragedy. certainly a different ending than this. >> reporter: investigators say they don't know what caused the fire. they're giving that captain credit for turning the boat around when he saw the smoke. if this had happened further out to saerks it would have been a different outcome. >> thank you, linzie. now to the wild finish at the vikings-saints playoff game. a 61-yard touchdown with time rung out on the clock. in their home stadium. it puts the vikings just one win away from the super bowl. and diane macedo is here with all the highlights. what a game. i was speechless. >> even if you're not a football fan this game was awesome. first the vikings ahead. then saint ps. the vikings ahead by two.
the saints ahead by one. and then this happens. >> steps into it. pass. is caught! diggs! sideline! touchdown! unbelievable! vikings win it! >> reporter: with no time left on the clock and about to lose by one point, the minnesota vikings fire off one last pass. >> pass is caught! >> reporter: stefon diggs makes the amazing catch. capping off a nail-biting fourth quarter for one of the most stunning last-second comebacks in football history. minnesota erupted in celebration with diggs mugging for the camera. and the qb even leading fans in the vikings fight chant. >> yes! >> no! >> reporter: this morning, the vikings faithful across the country are shocked and overjoyed, calling it the minneapolis miracle on twitter.

>> the popular streaming service hulu announcing it's won the bidding war for a series called "catch 22" that cleanny will star and direct. it's about a world war ii bombardier pilot trying to get home. this is his first series role since "e.r." he left that 20 years ago. hulu announcing it will begin streaming all 15 seasons of the beloved '90s medical drama, "e.r." which won 23 emmys. launched the careers of so many terrific actresses and actors. including that young george clooney. i'm sure our girls will discover clooney. maybe it's better. >> they'll have the day off. >> yes. also in "pop news" if you have trouble sleeping, and so many of us do, a new study points to a surprising and easy
cure. make a to-do list before you go to bed. it sounds really logical. >> that makes sense. >> researchers at baylor university say bed time writing is clearly linked with better sleep. they just completed the study where one group worked on everything they needed to remember for the next day. the other group wrote down the tasks they had completed in the last few days. and the to-do list group fell asleep nine minutes quirk on average than those looking back at what they had accomplished. nighttime list making takes it off your mind. takes away your worries. clears your head for a better sleep. seems like a really simple thing. >> i will use that. >> worrying about what's coming up tomorrow. >> i have a note pad next to the bed that when i wake up in the middle of the night, i'll write stup. >> to-do. i love that. and then, there's an app that i hope you'll try out. we had a great time with it this morning. how the find your fine art

the more we can get kids involved. go have some fun. make fun of me if you want. i don't care. as long as you learn more about arts and culture. that's all we have on this monday morning. >> that's awesome, lara. we were laughing with you. we want to turn to a "gma" health alert. the flu open democrat sick spreading across the country. the entire continental u.s. experiencing widespread flu. as of last week, nearly 6500 people have been hospitalized and 20 children have died. what should you do? the virus -- if family member comes down with it? d. jen ashton is here. i see -- you don't trust me? we're pumping with hand sanitizer. what happens if a member of your family has the flu? do you quarantine them? last year i had it. we had 15 people staying with us for ten days. >> i had it last year. there's very limited data on house hold items and how long
the influenza virus can survive. we think in general it can live on hard surfaces up to 24 hours. a lot of hat i'll share is recommended by the cdc. but this is also common sense. if you have someone in your house with a cold virus or suspected or con virmd influenza, there with basic things. make a sick room. not different from what's in the hospital. choose one care giver to do in and out of the room. they left my food trays at the door. you want to cover your coughs. left it at the door. it was horrible. and if possible, at least for a few minutes day, crack the window a little bit and circulate the air. >> kit be hard this time of year buzz it's so cold. you have hand sanitizer dripping from your hands. one of our producers says when she's sick, her husband follows her with wipes, spray, hand sanitizer. is that smart? >> for unflew when zarks that person should stay in bed. they shouldn't need to be fold.
when you talk about the the wipes, they're really more effective and useful for other things that might the circulating. particularly the so called g.i. flu. the norovirus. that person should be staying in one area of the house. >> what about house hold items we may share, list soap or magazines? what do we do with that? >> not so much for the flu, don't spend a lot of money. if cow can get window of help, do so. bath sheets, dry under hot temperatures. you don't have to be completely sterile. >> you can wash your bed sheets with ore sheets. just do it on hot? >> yes. >> what are the chances of getting the flu from the shot itself? >> i can't emphasize this enough. zero. the flu vaccine does not contain live virus. if you get something you think is influenza after having been
vaccinated, it could be coincidence or another virus. >> how often do we do? >> a lot. >> thank you, dr. ashton. to ginger. >> thank you, paula. now to queen elizabeth. a rare interview given. taking us betind scenes of her coronation nearly 65 years after that day. adrienne bankert is back. and the queen very candid. >> reporter: oh, my goodness. talk about bling and honesty. the detail of the gold and silver thread in her gown is simply breathtaking. and a real-life look at a glittering history. she's the most famous woman in the world and is rarely given an interview. the 91-year-old monarch was reunited with her coronation crown last night. and spoke very frankly about the moments where the world was watching. >> it still is heavy. yes, it is. it weighs a ton. it's very solid, isn't it? and it is impossible to tell
which is front and back, i suppose. >> reporter: she wore the more than 350-year-old crown just once, when she was crowned in 1953. a second crown, the imperial state crown is the one she wears more regularly. >> you can't look down the read the speech. you have to take the speech up. because if you did, your neck would break. it would fall off. so there are some disadvantages to crowns. >> reporter: the queen was just 27 years old at her coronation. and already the mother of two young children. prince charles and princess anne. as she watched archive footage, she revealed her gown was so heavy, at one point, she almost froze in place. >> i remember a moment i was going against the tile or the carpet and i couldn't move at all. >> reporter: after the coronation, she spoke of the four to five-mile ride halfway around london. a trip she reveals was not kol fortable in the four-on the gold

this speech. >> what it was was like, i was looking around at my community, and i saw a loot of homeless people, living in tents under the bridge. and i looked on tv. and i thought, no one's really doing anything about this. wow. >> right, and as we did a little research for the speech about dr. martin luther king, he talk about some of the same issues that were going on in his time. and she was able to identify that they were still going on today. >> i can see the pride in your eyes. >> oh. i'm over the moon. i don't know if proud is the word. i'm just so excited for her. >> you should be. what's next for you, tchanori? >> repeat that? >> what's next, tchanori, for you? >> what's next for you? >> well, i think i will continue public speaking. i think i'll decide to become an

was a young man, half filipino. it was interesting to me as a half filipino kid. that's the tip of the iceberg. we have fine episodes to cover something. the assassination of ji yanny versace happens in the first few minutes. we have a lot going on. >> it's interesting. i don't want to give too much away. the series creator, ryan murphy, the creator of "glee." he said you were his first and only choice for this role. and he also said that he knew you were capable of great darkness. >> because i'm a dark dude. can't you tell? i'm such an insidious presence. no, i mean, i appreciate that. it's more of him giving me a vote of confidence as an actor than -- than a judgment of me being a -- sullen person, i should hope. but, no, i appreciate his faith in me. i mean, i -- i joke about this. i don't mean it with -- i'm not
trying to be indignant. actors act. we're actors. hopefully, we're capable of great darkness and great light. that's the nature of our jobs. i'm glad that he -- >> that he noticed. >> that he noticed, yes, yes. i hope i was up to part. >> and you're surrounded by other actors who h really know how to do their craft. p penelope cruz. edgar ramirez. >> we have good actors on the show. it was like playing with the big lesion. i feel like i made varsity being around these incredible folks. >> how about ricky martin. >> let's not forget how good he is. >> there was some perks to working with ricky. he would have you over to his house for major sing-alongs. >> and in los angeles. he had us all get together and have time. because, i wouldn't spend time with him on set. yeah, we had some fun. if i go to someone's house and it's ricky martin's house, i'm
