7:03 am
you, cecilia. the fda is promising to move quickly on this and a decision could come by the end of this month. it's what many parents have been waiting for and others this morning are fearing. drugmaker pfizer says it's ready to vaccinate children, and is now requesting emergency authorization use of its vaccine for kids 5 to 11 years old. the shot would only be a third of the dose that's being put in the arms of people 12 and older. like adults children would need two shots about a month apart and pfizer says that these smaller shots prove safe and effective in children during trials. if approved more than 28 million children would be able to get this vaccine. >> protection in our pediatric population is part of the key to finally putting an end to this pandemic. we have millions of kids that are still vulnerable and because of that, we still have major risks in parts of this population. >> reporter: fda advisers will meet on the 26th of this month to go over pfizer's data. if the fda decides to move
7:04 am
forward, then it's up to the cdc to sign off. if the process moves quickly, millions of american grade school children could start getting vaccinated as early as the beginning of november and that means that many children under 12 could be fully vaccinated by the end of the year. >> we want the fda to go through its process around authorization to make sure that these vaccines are appropriate for kids. i fully suspect that we'll see that the benefit of these vaccines far outweigh any risk. >> reporter: in ohio 9-year-old luke moore has already gotten his two doses of the pfizer vaccine. he was part of the trial and says he couldn't be happier. >> i feel good about it. i really want everybody vaccinated so at school people could have their masks off. >> reporter: there's another age group that drugmakers are preparing for. children ages 6 months to 5 years old, a vaccine for that age group could be ready as early as the beginning of next year.
7:05 am
cecilia. >> okay, steve, thank you. joining us our friend dr. richard besser president of the robert wood johnson foundation, former director of the cdc. dr. besser, so many questions over this one. we're talking about kids 5 to 11. how much of a game changer would this be? >> you know, cecilia, i have to say i'm excited. i'm cautiously optimistic but i want to watch really carefully the review that the food and drug administration does and the cdc does because, you know, thankfully children have been impacted by covid less severely than adults and i want to make sure as a pediatrician that before i recommend this to my patients i'm convinced it's safe and it's effective. the information i've seen so far gives me a lot of hope. >> are there any side effects you want to be on the lookout for as a pediatrician that perhaps parents should be on the lookout for? >> it's still a bit of time before this would be approved. but it's the typical side effects that you often see when your kids get vaccines, sore arms, some fever, some aches, those kinds of things that you're used to seeing with other
7:06 am
vaccines, they've seen those here when they've given it to children. >> what are the concerns parents have come to you with about vaccinating their children? >> one of the myths that is out there that this covid pandemic isn't affecting children. there have been over 600 children who died. there have been thousands who have been hospitalized. so many that have developed this long-term covid syndrome. so it does affect children and so for their own well-being, i think it's very important to have safe and effective vaccines but also to protect those around children, kids who are at school, it will help protect their teachers, coaches, food service workers, the bus driver, grandparents who may have gotten vaccinated but medical conditions where they didn't get full protection. vaccinating children will protect them and allow us to come together thanksgiving the holiday season, in a much more safe way. >> i wanted to ask you about
7:07 am
that. we are approaching the holidays. if families are on the fence right now, perhaps even the parents haven't been vaccinated, what would a vaccine do for children that maybe could bring life back, the holidays back when it comes to families and schools, all of that? >> when i think about the holidays coming, i'm planning for us to be together as a family. but i'm also recognizing that the situation could change and we may need to change those plans and i think that's an important way to be. we are not out of the pandemic and what the future holds, it looks promising to me but we need to be ready for the unknown. >> always appreciate your perspective and advice, dr. besser, thank you so much. t.j. >> cecilia, with that increase in the number of people eligible to be vaccinated. well, one of the factors that is going to go into play when we're talking about a massive increase in holiday travel. airlines preparing to return to near pre-pandemic passenger levels. our transportation correspondent gio benitez at newark airport for us. folks better get on those tickets.
7:08 am
>> reporter: oh, they better, t.j. good morning to you. we are looking at more flights during the pandemic than at any other time during the pandemic. during the holidays. take a look. united airlines telling us it plans to fly 3,500 domestic flights in december. that's every single day. that's almost as many flights in the air as there were back in 2019. now, for a little perspective. look at april 2020, right at the start of the pandemic. very few passengers flying, just 649 flights a day. and when you look at flights searches, united is saying 16% more searches than before the pandemic. florida and ski resorts, of course, are still the top destinations this winter. and you better buy those tickets right now. our friends over at hopper tell us after halloween thanksgiving ticket prices could jump by, listen to this, 40%, t.j. >> after halloween, that is scary. talking about more and more airlines putting vaccine mandates in place and some employees still refusing to get the vaccine.
7:09 am
so could we possibly look at some shortages when it comes to enough workers and could that cause problems for passengers? >> reporter: so, look, here's what we know right now, t.j. united airlines were the first to mandate vaccines. 99% of the staff got the shot. now, some of the other airlines, they're just starting to mandate those vaccines right now, and experts really do believe that most of the employees will get the shot, t.j. >> gio, we appreciate your updates as always. >> thanks. we get the latest on the abortion rights battle playing out in texas. all the fallout from the federal judge's decision to block enforcement of the most restrictive bang in the nation. rachel scott is in houston with a look at what could happen next. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. in the state of texas already appealing this decision, so as it makes its way through the courts, some clinics it will me they are taking no chances, holding off on doing abortion
7:10 am
procedures. this morning, just 24 hours after a federal judge halted the most restrictive abortion law in the nation, only a handful of clinics are taking the risk to resume procedures. >> we reached out to some of the patients that we had on our waiting list to come in to have abortions today. >> reporter: judge robert pitman ruled the law banning abortions as early as six weeks in pregnancy was flagrantly unconstitutional, but the decision does not give providers blanket protection. they can still be sued retroactively in courts determine the law should be enforced again leaving the majority of providers on the sidelines. for weeks, a texas woman like maddie, a 21-year-old traveled hundreds of miles for an abortion. we sat down the day before her procedure in mississippi. >> at six weeks you didn't even know you were pregnant. >> not even close. i was still living my life as regular and as carefree of a college kid as i could be. >> reporter: maddie tells me she was on birth control. when she visited the doctor she thought she could only be a few weeks pregnant and under that six-week legal limit.
7:11 am
>> when she told me that i was measuring at 10 1/2 weeks, i just cried. i was heartbroken and terrified because i felt like the only option that i knew i had was gone. >> reporter: she started calling around to clinics in nearby states. how many clinics would you say you called altogether? >> easily 30 if not more. >> and most of them were booked. >> yeah. >> reporter: she finally got an appointment in mississippi. an option she knows others may not be able to afford. this morning she hopes texas women who want the procedure won't have to go out of state to get it. >> it's frustrating it took so long for them to figure out that this is unconstitutional. like this is a woman's right to have this option. >> reporter: so the majority of clinics here in texas are taking a wait and see approach. they received a surge in calls after that ruling and they do
7:12 am
see it as an important step but tell me it's still clouded in so much uncertainty. george. >> yeah, this one is headed to the supreme court. thanks very much. cecilia? we turn to washington now. republicans on capitol hill relenting. senators voting to avoid default and what could have been a catastrophic hit on the economy. and our senior national correspondent terry moran joins us now. terry, good morning to you. this fight is not over yet. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. it's not over, but disaster is averted for now. that's the headline up here after the senate voted last night to raise the debt ceiling by $480 billion. republicans giving a little ground with the threat of a national default looming over the country but the deal struck by majority leader chuck schumer and minority leader mitch mcconnell is only temporary and only lasts till december 3rd and we'll likely be up here doing the same thing at that time, and deal or no deal, this was a party line vote. no republicans voted to raise the debt ceiling. they're demanding that democrats
7:13 am
do this on their own, protesting and trying to make political hay out of biden's spending plans, even though the debt being paid off now is mostly debt that was run up under president trump. business leaders across the country are blasting this brinksmanship saying congress is playing a dangerous game with the u.s. economy but as i say, we are likely up here for another round of that dangerous game in december. cecilia. >> yeah, see you back on the hill then. all right, terry, thanks. the latest on that massive oil spill off the coast of southern california. authorities announcing they are launching a criminal investigation into the energy company that runs the pipeline that leaked up to 144,000 gallons of oil into the pacific ocean. our kaylee hartung is in san pedro with the latest. kaylee, hello. >> reporter: hey, t.j., good morning. so prosecutors in orange county have opened up this criminal investigation into the company that runs the pipeline. that makes at least six investigations by state and federal agencies into this oil spill.
7:14 am
now it was a week ago that it was first reported and we're still asking the same questions. what happened and who's responsible, and the coast guard right now, they don't even have a leading theory. not after ruling went out yesterday. authorities boarded a massive german cargo ship, and they were trying to figure out if that ship's anchor damaged the pipeline. it turns out the ship was closeby to the pipeline, but didn't actually pass right over pit. this morning, the operator of that vessel saying they are no longer under investigation. some experts say the relatively small size of the crack in this concrete-encased pipeline, that could help explain why so much oil was able to leak out before it was -- before it was discovered, and stopped any sooner. the cleanup operation, it is now expanding. authorities say 1,500 people will be down here to help out. t.j.? >> thank you, kaylee. we'll get the latest on the nba fraud scheme. 18 former players charged with
7:15 am
cheating them out of millions. by detailing medical procedures that never happened. andrew dymburt has the story. good morning, andrew. >> reporter: allegations of a major health care fraud scheme rocking the nba world. a group of high-profile former pros facing years behind bars for allegedly making fake insurance claims and allegedly collecting big payouts. among those accused, guys who played on nba championship teams and first round draft picks. this morning officials calling foul on more than a dozen former nba players busted in a multimillion dollar insurance scam. >> each defendant fraudulently sought reimbursement ranging from approximately $65,000 to as much as $420,000. >> reporter: prosecutors say at least 18 former nba players including glen "big baby" davis who won a title with the celtics and high school phenom sebastian telfair have been arrested and
7:16 am
charged with defrauding the nba's health and welfare benefit plan out of nearly $4 million after fabricating appointments and procedures by chiropractor, dentists and doctors. greg smith who played for the houston rockets -- >> he gets the free throw. >> reporter: -- allegedly claimed $48,000 for a root canal at a beverly hills dentist's office in 2018 but was playing basketball in taiwan that day. meanwhile, davis, anthony wroten said they had six root canals on the same teeth on the same day. overnight, 16 of the suspects were arrested and charged. telfair leaving court wearing an ankle monitoring after pleading not guilty. the nba calls the allegations disheartening and other than sebastian telfair none of the others accused have entered a plea yet or even commented on the charges. >> same teeth on same day? >> i wrote same teeth same day. >> wow. >> i've only had two root canals.
7:17 am
we turn now -- we saw something last night we've never seen before. we turn to the mlb playoffs. october excitement. last night, a rookie, randy arozarena made history, home run, okay, that's one thing. but then he stole home. this happens so rarely anyway, to steal home. it's an exciting play, but he is the first player ever to hit a home run and steal home in the same playoff game. tampa bay ended up winning 5-0 against boston but this was something to see. congrats to him, a rookie. >> wow. >> that's something. a lot more coming up here on "gma," including why brian laundrie's father is helping authorities in their search for his son. that abc news exclusive with the surfer who survived a great white bite. how he managed to escape the shark. it's only on "gma" but first head to rob. hey, rob. good friday morning. our lead story on weather continues to be the flooding across the southeast. we have big-time flooding in north carolina. we were afraid of this across the mountains of georgia and the

reserve. this is where chris laundrie spent hours with investigators yesterday but according to his attorney, no discoveries were made. this as we hear from people familiar with this sprawling alligator-infested area who tell us that if brian laundrie has been hiding out here for three weeks now, surviving would be incredibly difficult. this morning, the hunt for brian laundrie focused on the carlton reserve state park. the fbi shutting down the nearly 25,000-acre park and allowing brian laundrie's fat 23-year-old son, the person of interest related to the murder of 22-year-old gabby petito. >> they've dedicated a lot of resources, state-of-the-art equipment, money, manpower, assets like aviation support, night vision, thermal imaging, canine, the bloodhounds are extremely important, especially in a place like the carlton reserve. there's a lot of dedicated resources they're throwing at this case, and they're not going to stop. they need to find this guy. >> reporter: the laundries' attorney telling abc news chris was asked to point out any favorite trails or spots that brian may have used in the
7:34 am
preserve although chris and roberta laundrie provided this information verbally three weeks ago. it is now thought that an on-site assistance may be better. >> i wasn't sure about what he looked like, and then i went and parked and pulled up the photographs of him, and i'm 99.99% sure that was him. >> reporter: several tips have been reported around the appalachian trail near the north carolina/tennessee border. but it's unclear what led investigators back to the reserve in florida. >> you keep things close to the vest. you don't want to release anything, especially with a case like this. >> reporter: dixie is familiar swamp surrounding the reserve and says she's not certain that anyone could survive the alligat alligator-infested marshland unless they were a survivalist. >> survival in an area such as the carlton preserve would be very precarious. they would be someone with a very high level of knowledge regarding the native habitats, wild edibles and survival in general.
7:35 am
there's a lot of things that work against a person surviving in a situation like that. >> reporter: earlier, brian's sister cassie revealed exclusively to abc news that brian is familiar with the reserve, but she doesn't think he's there. >> i don't think that he would have gone there to hide. i'd say brian is a mediocre survivalist. he reads books about it and it wouldn't surprise me if he could last out there very long time. >> reporter: and earlier this week, cassie laundrie also telling us she doesn't know if her parents were involved in helping brian escape, and if they were, they should come clean. the laundrie family attorney saying any speculation they helped brian leave the family home or avoid arrest is just wrong. guys. >> so many questions. victor, thank you. >> victor, thank you so much. want to turn to an abc news exclusive with the survivor of a shark encounter speaking out from his hospital bed after fighting off a great white. our trevor ault is here with

7:37 am
mean you can see from grazing its teeth i cut my hand but it was such a measly punch compared to how big this creature was. >> reporter: but that punch was enough. the shark loosening its bite, steinley coming up for air warning other surfers. >> he was saying, shark, he was saying, out. he was saying help. >> reporter: but they were still a five-minute paddle from shore. >> i saw his leg. it looks like he had a red stripe on his wet suit. >> don't look at your leg. let's just keep going, and then we paddled in together until a wave came then i gave it my all. >> reporter: on the beach nearly a dozen other surfers rushing in to help using their surfboard leashes as a makeshift tourniquet to stop the bleeding. >> all the surfers that were with me out on the water, came out all together and grabbed this long board and put me on it and held me down and held me on the board, picked up the board and carried me all the way up those steps. >> the care he got prior to arrival did a lot of help to save his leg. >> reporter: the california
7:38 am
department of fish and wildlife says based on the dna and bite radius from steinley's surfboard this was a great white shark at least ten feet long. >> great white sharks can be fairly large, and if you should get bitten by one, as eric did, it can be pretty severe, but in this case, you know, the shark did let go of him and he was lucky enough to be this and -- in and around the space where there were other people that were there to help him. eric did all the right things by being in a space where he could get that immediate help. >> reporter: after two surgeries, steinley is now out of the icu. he's facing a long recovery and he's not sure if surfing will ever be the same, but he wants to get back on the board at least one more time. >> i still want to be part of the lifestyle. i'm just so thankful they were there, still in disbelief i'm alive because of it. >> reporter: and experts stress great white sharks attacks are extremely rare. you don't need to be afraid to go into the ocean, but this is a great reminder that if you are out surfing, swimming, make sure you're always with somebody else because you never know if you

8:04 am
children would be able to get this vaccine. fda advisers will meet on the 26th of this month to go over pfizer's data. if the fda decides to move forward, then it's up to the cdc to sign off. if this process moves quickly enough, millions of american children could start getting the pfizer vaccine as early as the beginning of november which means that many of these children under 12, cecilia, could be fully vaccinated by the end of the year. cecilia. >> great move ahead of the holidays. okay, steve, thanks. george? >> thanks, cecilia. we turn to the latest on the abortion rights battle playing out in texas. all the fallout from the federal judge's decision to block enforcement of the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation. back to rachel scott in houston. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning, and that federal judge ruling that the texas law banning abortions roughly six weeks into a woman's pregnancy is flagrantly unconstitutional but even with that ruling only a handful of clinics are resuming abortion procedures this morning.

8:32 am
film is extremely emotional and we -- we -- we get to understand the relationship between james bond and madeline and why they are so connected because they are both orphans and so, yeah, this time it's very -- i mean it's very emotional and it's maybe the reason why, you know, it's -- people really connected to the story. i mean i can't reveal any spoilers but -- >> t.j. is going to see it. we're all going to see it soon so we don't want to ruin it. lea, i got to tell you, i got a little nervous hearing the story about the very first time you saw the movie was at the london premiere. you were sitting in a box with the royals next to you. what was that like watching yourself in a bond movie sitting right next to the royal family?
8:33 am
>> it was, you know what, it was the first time actually that i had discovered the film and to watch the film with an audience and to have all the reactions and to be next to the royal family, of course, was quite something. i mean, it was -- it was such an experience and very, very emotional and also because it is daniel craig's last james bond, it was such -- i mean, it was unforgettable and, yeah, people were extremely moved by the film and i mean it was -- yeah, it's -- i'm really happy and so happy that, you know, that everybody loves it. >> emotional seems to be the theme of the morning. must have been also emotional for you to say good-bye to daniel craig now that he's saying good-bye to james bond. >> yeah.

8:36 am
with depth and vulnerability which is something quite new for a bond woman and it's been like -- and i think i can like thank daniel in a way because he's -- he's a feminist and it's because of him that the female characters have changed so much, and it was i think time now to have, yeah, stronger female characters, so i'm really happy for that. >> i think that is a fair thing to say. it is certainly time. speaking of time you don't have much free time, lea. you have five major films coming up. not just "no time to die," you've got "the french dispatch." you've got no time to sleep. how are you separating all these roles, keeping them separate? >> yes, yes, i've worked a lot, yes. yeah, really excited because i've done five great films that are very -- all very different,
