tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  November 6, 2021 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
good morning and welcome to your "new day." it's saturday, november 6th. i'm christi paul. >> i'm boris sanchez. we begin with breaking news. a tragedy in houston where at least eight people have died at a sold-out music festival. at as many as 50,000 people were attending the first world of astroworld music festival when a
3:01 am
crowd rushed the stage and caused panic and chaos. >> earlier in the afternoon, hundreds of people stampeded through a vip entrance. they knocked over metal detectors and ignored security staff there, as you can see for yourself. this is the third year for the festival, which is organized by rapper and producer travis scott. officials say that today's lineup is canceled and there is an investigation going on right now. >> they're working to identify all the victims, but what has been made clear, the folks that were transported, some as young as 10, and so really tonight is about that, is about connecting families with the information that they need. >> 10 years old. cnn's evan mcmorris is following the story. he joins us live. evan, it's good to see you this morning. help us understand what's going on. >> this is an ongoing story, so
3:02 am
i'm going to refer to my notes as i talk to you about it. we have a lot to learn about what happened, but we do know this is a tragedy that appears to be about crowd control and about what happens when a large group of people wants to go in one direction at one time. this is supposed to be a celebration of houston by one of its most prominent sons, but instead what we're seeing is 50,000 people were in attendance last night, according to authorities, at nrg park, a stadium complex in houston, which is used to be the home of the astroworld/six flags park, which is what the name is event after. authorities say there was some kind of crowd surge which led to the large number of casualties. 20 people taken to the hospital, some with cardiac arrest, some were children, as we heard from authorities earlier today, and of course that horrible number you mentioned, eight dead in this incident. earlier in the day, as you also saw in the opening video, another crowd control incident when the crowd rushed that
3:03 am
opening entrance, surging through those gates like that. this is the kind of thing you really hope never to see when you go to an event like this. this is an event you don't see that often, thankfully. the saddest part is travis scott is a native of houston, and showcases his neighborhood of south park. you can see him on stage during these horrible moments. you can only imagine what's going through his head right now and everybody else as they are investigating what happened and what this means for houston and for this music festival. boris and christi? >> evan mcmorris-santoro, we appreciate it so much. we know this is a fluid situation. thank you. joining us now over the phone is the houston fire chief, samuel pena. thank you for making time for
3:04 am
us. we heard our reporter describe this as a celebration of houston, saying that a surge is what caused the most damage to life. do you know what sparked that surge and what the latest is on your investigation? >> boris, we don't know what sparked that crowd surge. we do know we had about 50,000 people that attended this venue. it was an outdoor concert event. and the crowd, for whatever reason, began to push and surge towards the front of the stage -- or towards the stage, which caused people in the front to be compressed. they were unable to escape that situation. that incident caused a lot of additional panic in the crowd and as people began to fall out and be compressed. and it quickly overwhelmed the security that was hired for that venue. so, you know, the people that were falling out, again, they -- the numbers just increased.
3:05 am
there were scores of individuals that were injured. and it quickly overwhelmed the medical component that was hired by the promoters to be present for that venue. the houston fire department, houston police department responded as soon as the number of injured became overwhelming for those companies. we ended up transporting about 23 people in serious condition, 11 of those were critical. we were doing cpr en route to the hospital. sadly, eight of those individuals to this point have succumbed to their injuries and have died. that number may change, because as i mentioned, the others were in critical condition. at this point we have eight confirmed fatalities and we have scores of other individuals that were -- that were injured in some fashion throughout the
3:06 am
course of that day. >> chief pena, the harris county judge said one of these patients was 10 years old. do we know if that 10-year-old is okay? do we have his or her condition? do you have a gauge of how many children were at this event? >> we do know we transported patients from -- anywhere from 10 up to the upper 20s in age. one of the individuals that was transported was 10 years old. the last i heard, and things may have changed, but last i heard, the patient was in critical condition there at the texas children's hospital. they got some of the best -- we have some of the best hospitals in the city of houston. i know they're getting the best care they can, but they are -- that patient was in critical condition. it was just a tragic situation. at this moment our hearts go out to the families that lost a
3:07 am
loved one because, you know, they went out there to have some fun, enjo i a concert. for whatever reason, the crowd surge and this incident turned into a tragic event. >> chief, obviously our hearts go out to the families and those that were hurt and impacted by this, but there are questions about accountability. it's my understanding that almost an identical incident happened two years ago, the same festival also in houston, three people had to be taken to the hospital after a stampede. do you know if any special precautions were taken this time around bit promoters to avoid this happening again? >> well, you know, it's obvious that if they did, they weren't enough. you know, again, tragically eight people lost their lives tonight. it could be more. b
3:08 am
but, look, we're investigating this. it's in its infancy. it happened a couple of hours ago. the houston police department will be reviewing video of the scene. there were cameras present for security and other purposes that they'll be reviewing. we'll certainly be looking at how the venue was laid out and was there enough egress points, what caused, one, the issue of the crowd surge and, two, what prevented people from being able to escape that situation. >> we showed the video just a bit ago of people at an earlier incident who were breaking through the security barriers and running in, there was that surge. don't know that anybody was hurt at that point, but at that point did you get the sense, and just for our viewers, so they know, that's a video of that surge. is it safe to assume those are people who -- did they not have tickets? was it a planned surge?
3:09 am
because they all just bombarded through there at once. what do you -- and should that have been an indication of what may be to come? >> absolutely. look, i don't know that -- you know, what the situation was for that initial surge. we do know we had people that were trying to jump the fence. as a matter of fact, we did have one injury that resulted as a result of that. but it did give us an indication of the type of crowd that was present there at the venue. and, again, you know, the promoters, they were handling the security. they handled the medical component. the houston fire department, houston police department deployed resources as a precaution. i mean, we had 50,000 people there. and, you know, certainly i'm glad we did because we were able
3:10 am
to quickly mobilize and muster the required resources to be able to transport those that were critically injured. and the event was stopped as soons the crowd became -- you know, the situation got to the point where it was overwhelming the resources there. the police department in conjunction with the promoter's security were able to stop the event and begin to de-escalate. look, the damage had been done. >> fire chief samuel pena, we know it's been a long night for you and we're so grateful you and all of your officials there, we know you're doing the best you can. thank you for taking the time to update us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. you all be safe. >> you as well. >> thanks, chief. we're also tracking this moment a major moment for the biden presidency. after months of painstaking
3:11 am
negotiation and hours of delays friday night, a record for the longest ongoing vote in the history of the house, congress passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill. >> this legislation is a major victory for democrats after struggling to rally around biden's bill. eva from capitol hill. talk to tus how democrats were able to get this bill across the finish line. >> reporter: for a long time there was just this trust deficit between progressive and moderate democrats, but ultimately president biden calling democrats last night in the final hour, leaning on them, imploring them to vote for this infrastructure package is what seems to have moved this across the finish line. also, some republicans joined democrats in voting for this bill, 13 of them. these are moderate republicans who want to be able to go back to their congressional districts and say they had a hand in
3:12 am
supporting the largest single investment in infrastructure in american history. but six democrats did not support the bill. they include congressman gentjamall bowman, corey bush, congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez, ilhan omar, ayanna pressley, and rashida tlaib. those are members that really stuck to their guns. so, here is what's actually included in this infrastructure package. $110 billion for roads and bridges, $65 billion for broadband, $39 billion for public transit and billions more in infrastructure investments. progressive chair pramila
3:13 am
jayapal, listen to what the congresswoman had to say during the time of the vote. >> we feel really proud of what we were able to get and how far we've come in just four weeks because we held the line over and over again. we also made the determination that the country needs to continue to move forward. so, we feel like we got the best of all worlds. we got a commitment on this vote, which -- and every single one of those individuals looked us in the eyes and said, they are voting for it. and so, you know, look, we got -- we've got to move things forward. i'll just say that i think i have stayed positive about everyone along the way, but i think anyone watching this fight understands progressives have been delivering for the president over and over and over again. >> reporter: so it seems progressives blinked in this forever staring contest. an indication that ultimately that the longer this dragged on, it just became too difficult for
3:14 am
democrats to continue on this path. boris, christi? >> eva, we appreciate it. thank you so much. so, the president is expected to sign this infrastructure bill into law, obviously, very quickly, but his much larger social spending bill is still very much in question. >> yeah, as eva pointed out, progressives were hoping to advance both bills together. they fought for that for months. now democrats say they plan to hold a vote on the spending bill no later than november 15th. cnn white house reporter jasmine wright is live in rohoboth beach, delaware. that's where the president was supposed to be, instead he decided to stay in d.c. and oversee the passage of this long-fought for bill. the president will speak later. what can we expect to hear? >> reporter: we can expect to hear a major victory lap. look, when president biden gets here in rohoboth, he comes with
3:15 am
a massive win under his belt, hours after arguably one of the best days in his presidency. you're right, it comes after months and months of painstaking negotiations. but as of right now, and when he comes down here later today, he will have the major xoen fents of his economic agenda. in starting that victory lap yesterday in a statement, i want to read a part of it. he said, tonight we took a monumental step forward. generations from now, people will look back and know this is when america won the economic competition for the 21st century. now, this bipartisan infrastructure bill as eva so gratefully laid out a few minutes ago, it will bring roads and bridges and transportation and broadband and clean water to the american people. and it should also bring jobs. that was something the president touted over and over and over again when making his argument.
3:16 am
so, you know, still though, it did not come without painstaking effort on his part. though, it is kind of one of the massive victory, we saw him last night -- or we heard from officials last night in reporting that he was going back and forth from progressives to moderates. really trying to push them, pressure them to come to a deal, calling into the caucuses, making sure that something can move ahead. we saw him really putting a deadline down, something that for the last few months, even in the last week, that he was really reluctant to do, telling them that this is a time now to come ahead. i will make sure that the second part of my agenda, which is the reason progressives were holding out that vote, because moderates would not vote for that expansive package. he said that, i will make sure to bring these things to you. so, today the president, we can expect to see him, really take a victory lap as he starts to move
3:17 am
forward on that second part of his agenda, that social safety expansion part. boris, christi? >> a big question, what is going to happen when november 15th comes around, if that expansion is going to pass. jasmine wright, thank you so much from rohoboth beach. let's bring in cnn political commentator errol lewis, host of the you decide podcast. great to see you as every saturday morning. appreciate you getting up early for us. this bill faced a couple of near-death experiences, right? but it passed. as jasmine noted, yesterday was one of the best days of joe biden's presidency. put it in context for us, given, you know, slumping approval numbers sxom of the other hurdles he's had to jump. >> good morning, boris. the reality for the biden administration was they had to get this done. they have something they can really crow about and that a lot
3:18 am
of the members of congress can run on next year, which is they've got something done that under a decade's worth of republican leadership in congress, they never got done, right? it was a running joke that it was going to be infrastructure week. you know, we talked about that for four years during the trump presidency and they never even brought anything close to a vote. whereas now, there's going to be the possibility of roads and bridges that people can ride on and see and touch and infrastructure and jobs and everything else. so, that's a very good thing for the biden presidency. on the other hand, the much larger bill is going to be contentious. it may or may not get done to the approval of voters. we may not feel and see that in time to help in the midterms. so, politically, the white house is -- has got a lot of work to do. on the other hand, taking this first step and getting this bill passed, a major achievement. just as public policy, history-making public policy of the kind joe biden had vowed to
3:19 am
deliver. >> it is the largest single investment in infrastructure in more than a decade, so it is a big deal. i wanted to ask you about the build back better plan. you noted it still remains to be seen whether it's going to pass. the cbo has to weigh it. it then heads to the house, the senate, back to the house, before it winds up on president biden's desk. what do you think is going to be the biggest challenge to getting that bill passed? >> you know, this is looking like this might be choreography here at the end, boris. meaning some of the moderate or so-called blue dog democrats have said they want a cbo score. they want to know how much all of this is going to cost. that's not necessarily, strictly speaking, an accounting exercise but more of a political exercise so they can say truthfully when they try to run for re-election, i wanted to be responsible. i wanted to make sure this $1.7 trillion or $2 trillion bill was responsible spending. so, i held out even to the very
3:20 am
end asking for a neutral calculation of what it's going to cost over the next ten years. so, if that's the case, then really this is choreography. this is about making sure everybody feels politically protected as they try and hold hands, step over the cliff together and hope that the voters are there to catch them when the midterms come around next year. >> and that is part of my next question because on election night this past tuesday, we saw democrats suffer some pretty significant losses. how much did those losses lead to urgency and sort of force the hand of not only the progressives, but also moderates like joe manchin and chkrichris sinema. >> it seems to have backfired because people care about local
3:21 am
issues. i think it may have been a wake-up call to members of congress that, you know what, if we make this some sort of a national stat about the last presidency instead of talking about the future and what's going to help families in the here and now, then we're going to lose. and as long as they keep that in mind, that's a general rule that would always apply to most politicians. you know, help the people that you were sworn to represent, get them the resources they need to have better lives, help move the economy forward and the politics will take care of itself. >> in the case of new governor glenn youngkin, try to keep donald trump at arm's length whenever possible, potentially a playbook for other republicans moving forward, right? >> possibly. he kept a little bit of distance. but believe me, he had that trump base out there working hard for him. and they picked a number of issues, including the nonexistent critical race htheoy hoax that was a key part of his campaign. it's been described as
3:22 am
education, but we all know what they were really talking about. and even though critical race theory is not taught in any school in virginia, they tried to make it as if it was some sort of a mandate that had to be fought against. as long as you have that ugly undertone, you know, trumpism in whatever variation or evolution is not yet gone. so, this is going to be something i think we see prevailing in both the midterms and the next presidential election, boris. >> hard to believe just about a year away. time flies. thank you so much for the time. >> thank you. so, across the country, millions of families are breathing a sigh of relief as young children begin to get vaccinated. next, you'll hear from a pediatrician who has a message for parents that might still be hesitant. also chaos and confusion ahead of the capitol insurrection. coming up, an exclusive report on how an overhaul of the capitol police intel unit may have led to some missteps.

3:27 am
26 minutes past the hour. the cdc officially recommended the pfizer vaccine for young children ages 5 to 11 this week. our next guest did not hesitate, she immediately took her kids to get their first shots. she's a pediatrician at duke children's primary care and wrote this in the charlotte observer. there don't have to be another 700 childhood deaths next year with the protection of the vaccine on board, our children can no be part of the fight, part of the victory. we're talking about dr. peniodi, joining us. can you give us some context here. what made you confident in this vaccine for children and what do you say to parents who are on the fence and just don't trust it particularly for this age group? >> yeah, these are really
3:28 am
important questions. it's normal to be skeptical and concerned when something like this comes up. you know, christi, over this last 20 months, i have been seeing children devastated by the virus. children are sick themselves, but they're also suffering from all of the effects of the virus. their mental health has suffered, their normal routines they need have just been ruined, and when i reviewed all the data and talked to my colleagues and experts, i felt very confident that the vaccine, number one, was effective so it worked to prevent children from getting very sick and dying, and that it was safe. so, as soon as i could, i took my own two kids and got them their jab. >> when you talk about parents being confused and concerned, what reasons did they give you about not wanting to get the
3:29 am
vaccine and then how do you respond to that? >> yeah. one of the bigger questions i get is the concern that the vaccine is new. how can we be sure that it's okay to give to my own precious child when it is so new? and i respond by saying that actually the vaccine is not new. the technology is over 20 years old. scientists have been working on mrna technology for a long, long time. and a good analogy is thinking of your phone. we've had phones for many years, but every year there's a new version and it gets updated. that is what has happened with these vaccines. technology has been there, it's very well known and been adapted to fight the coronavirus. and i let them know i'm very comfortable with the technology actually not being new. >> that's a great analogy. >> the second thing i say --
3:30 am
yeah, i think everybody can relate to a smartphone analogy. the second thing i'll say is that the vaccine has been given to billions of people around the world. and we have over a year now of information of how the vaccine works. and that's very strong support because we know it works really, really well. so far, it has shown to be very kaf with the normal side effects i would expect in children like the babies who come in and get their early vaccine, they may feel uncomfortable, maybe have a fever, but nothing more than that except in very rare cases. . >> you write in "the charlotte observer" about what you write about mental health issues in children. you say, in my 15 years as a peed pediatrician, i've never seen so many young girls cutting their wrists as a suicidal gesture as i have this year. talk to us about what you're seeing. and are the girls opening up to
3:31 am
you about it? when you see them? >> it's heartbreaking. i mention girls because they are the majority, but i've also seen young boys. what i have seen is children who used to come in, they were full of life and excitement, over the year their mood and emotions have tanked. this comes as a result of their whole world structure being changed. children thrive on routine and predictability. they need their school environment, their friends, their activities to really thrive. that has really been cut off. most of the young people, because i have a relationship with them, do open up to me. they'll say things, quite frankly, you know, this sucks and i hate this and it's often even more serious than that. as i mentioned, a lot of young people making gestures like cutting their wrists because they are so depressed and full
3:32 am
of anxiety, they don't know what's going to happen in the future, they may be hearing kitchen table conversations from the caregivers in their house about difficulties with finances or maybe keeping their home. they are absorbing all of this information. and it is really hard for them to adapt. so, the vaccine is really the best way to get out of this hole for our young people. this will allow them to go back to their regular routines and lives, to getting dirty in the playground and, you know, playing with their friends at school. i really see this as the most important way that we can help our children get back to their regular lives. >> there was a doctor on several months ago, and i remembered this as a parent, who said children will generally, not always, but generally do as well as their parents are doing. it was a reminder of me to be very thoughtful and intentional of the words that i'm using and
3:33 am
the conversations i'm having in their presence. so, yeah, because of what you're talking about, it's really, really scary. doctor, thank you so much for being with us. we appreciate you and the work you do. >> yes, you're welcome. thank you. quick programming note about a special cnn town hall. cnn and sesame street are teaming up to answer questions you and your kids have about the vag. we'll expand more on what we just heard from the doctor. you can watch "the abcs of covid vaccines" at 8:30 a.m. eastern. i don't know. you could sprain your ankle, throw out your back... get hit by a school bus. or a regular bus. get kicked by a horse. fall off a ladder. bathtub mishap. polio. boating accident. stuck by a fork. rabies. wolves. scurvy. talk to us about disability income insurance today.
